CHURCHILL LAUNCHES COLD WAR
The Cold War, the Hegelian invention of Soviet Russia and the United States at eachother's throats, the "free world" vs. the "slave empire", Capitalism vs. Communism, wasthe final triumph of dialectical ma
terialism, also invented by the German philosopher,Hegel. He laid down the dictum that to rule the world, you create a problem; you findan antidote to that problem; and you throw the two conflicting theses against eachother, to result in a consensus or resolution. This diabolical and cynical formulareached its apogee in the Cold War. Hopefully, we will not see another such travestyof history.Hard on the conclusion of the Second World War, the Colossus of the United Statesstood astride the entire world. With the world's largest economy, never touched by asingle bomb or artillery shell throughout the war, the largest army, and a proud andvictorious people, it was incredible that the United States could for a moment seriouslyregard the war-devastated Soviet Union as a threat. Stalin lost forty million peopleduring the war; his nation was in rains. He desperately needed a breathing space inwhich to recover. Miraculously, the World Order invention of the Cold War came to hisrescue. None other than Stalin's co-conspirator, Winston Churchill, was chosen tolaunch this new "problem".. Now unemployed, Churchill was desperate to get back intothe limelight. At the invitation of President Truman, Churchill was brought to the UnitedStates to deliver a speech at little Fulton College, in Truman's home state of Missouri.On March 5, 1946, at Fulton, Churchill made his famous "Iron Curtain" speech. Hewarned that an "Iron Curtain" had descended upon Europe, the Communistenslavement of the Eastern European countries. He failed to mention that he andFranklin Delano Roosevelt had joined at Yalta to deliver Eastern Europe to Stalin, withAlger Hiss, the originator of the plan, beaming in the background. Not a single journalist, anywhere in the world, mentioned Churchill's overwhelming personalcomplicity in creating and maintaining the dire situation which he now publiclydeplored.
THE CONVERSION OF SENATOR ARTHUR VANDENBERG
One of Washington's leading political strategists, Senator Arthur Vandenberg hadwarned his co-con
spirators at the Feb. 27, 1947 White House meeting that to sell theprospective Cold War program, they would have to "scare hell out of the country". Hehad an interesting background. A millionaire newspaper publisher in Grand Rapids,Michigan (later to become famous as the home of President Gerald Ford), Vandenberghad been elected to the Senate in 192S. A rock-ribbed Republican, he voted againstNew Deal measures such as the Social Security Act. He was Republican minorityleader, and Capitol Hill's leading isolationist. When the United Nations proposal cameto Congress, no one in Washington doubted that Vandenberg would shoot it down.
