Excerpt

This book is a "Middtetown"-- or, rather, a "Bigtown" -- of world revolutionary propaganda. It is a case study of revolutionary propaganda in action. The scene is one of the great industrial cities of the world. The time is the Great Depression. The leading character is the propagandist of Communism.

We are interested in the facts. We have taken care to find them. But we are chiefly concerned with the meaning of the facts for the understanding of the future.

Will Communism conquer America? Are we passing from an "individualistic America" to a "Sovietized America"? Is this part of a world trend from "individualism" to "collectivism"?

We deliberately look toward the future. As students of world politics, part of our problem is to be correct about the future.

This is a bold declaration. Yet it does no more than make explicit what is usually implicit. As living, deciding beings we cannot fail to estimate the future. When we act, as we constantly must, we are influenced by our expectation of what the world has in store for us.

Our expectation about the future may include the destiny of our person, out family, our nation, our race. It may include the destiny of man on earth, and of the earth itself.

With regard to political events, we weigh expectations about the future of influence. From this comes out study of Communism. Will those who are emotionally identified with Communist symbols succeed in ruling America and in unifying the world?
