David Bidstrup on Yuri Bezmenov

Recently I discovered Yuri Bezmenov, a KGB operative who defected to the USA in 1970. Rather than repeat his life story anyone interested should read his Wikipedia article.

His function with the KGB was to assist in the subversion of countries through a 4 stage process of demoralisation, destabilisation, crisis and the emergence of the “new order”. A “you tube” search for “Yuri Bezmenov” will yield a trove of videos done in the eighties where he expands on the KGB processes used to subvert and brainwash nations.

Given the state of Australia at present, with “activists” telling us how we should live his story is interesting. It is also interesting in the context of the “climate change” debacle that seems to be getting stronger every day.

Bezmenov refers to the “useful idiots” that are recruited to further the socialist/Marxist cause and we need not look far to find them here – think Get Up and the Greens along with the plethora of “independent” candidates who are supported by Get Up and the vested interests in renewable energy.

He states that the stage of demoralisation is complete when the truth no longer matters – his words below sum up the current impasse on climate change:

 As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who is demoralised is unable to assess true information. The facts tell him nothing, even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents and pictures. …he will refuse to believe it… That’s the tragedy of the situation of demoralisation.

I suggest we are at that point and that our triennial act of madness on May 18 will not change very much. It is galling that the task will be to choose the least dangerous of the offering.

Anyway, have a look at Mr Bezmenov. I found it interesting and hope you do as well.

    We have sunk to a depth at which the first duty of intelligent men is to quote Orwell:

    We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.

    It would have worked too … if it hadn’t been for that meddling Assange, and his nosy cat “Scoop the do do”.

    Vote “1” for the eponymous Bull Shitten and his Australian Liars Party.

    Yuri does!

    I watched the Yuri videos man moons ago and have posted them on the cat, as have others.

    It’s not about getting the message out to the already brainwashed, it’s about getting it out to the rest……………..who are still the majority.

    Yep, that’s what I see and hear every day regardless of talk that it’s falling apart, the threads are unravelling or the scam has been exposed.

    It’s a major belief with prophets even, and it doesn’t matter if and when they are wrong.

    Their believers forgive and defend them because their behaviour is acceptable, it is for the greater good.

    I am more and more inclined to just go deep and stay there.

    “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – Orwell (apocryphal)

    With kids in school now indoctrinated by wall-to-wall leftist propaganda, and no longer being taught the tools to sort truth from lies, we truly now live in a time of universal deceit. The cost for openly going against the leftist ideology is to lose your job, be censored, persecuted, banned from social media and unpersoned.

    Another Yuri:

    Disinformation
    From Wikipedia
    According to senior SVR officer Sergei Tretyakov, the KGB was responsible for creating the entire nuclear winter story to stop the deployment of Pershing II missiles.[27] Tretyakov says that from 1979 the KGB wanted to prevent the United States from deploying the missiles in Western Europe and that, directed by Yuri Andropov, they distributed disinformation, based on a faked “doomsday report” by the Soviet Academy of Sciences about the effect of nuclear war on climate, to peace groups, the environmental movement and the journal AMBIO: A Journal of the Human Environment.[27]
    Chief of Russian foreign intelligence Yevgeny Primakov confirmed in 1992 that Operation INFEKTION was a disinformation campaign to make the world believe the U.S. invented AIDS.[6][7]

    And

    “It is also interesting in the context of the “climate change” debacle that seems to be getting stronger every day”
    The ‘climate’ scam is more widely believed than witch burning in the fifteenth century.
    From the printing of Daemonologie by James I of England in 1597, the belief that witches were responsible of all things bad and ugly, it persisted for at least until the Salem witch trials in 1693, and longer in some locales.

    We can probably expect this current nonsense to persist for another hundred years.

    Stackja, I remember a report on the “Dezinformatsi “ department of KGB,department 13 of the First Cheif Directorate in Dzerzhinski Square . They used to dream up the most ridiculous lies to advance their cause ,a bit like todays career politicians . The Nuclear winter sounds typical of them ,the greatest one that didnt quite get off the ground was th one where US scientists had developed the AIDS virus to wipe out blacks and asians ,it had escaped into the US gay community before the world wide spreading of it. That was picked up by a few eager lefty msm ,but promptly squashed by those editors with half a brain .
    The climate change one would be the greatest one ever ,worthy of a sackfull of Orders of Lenin and lifetime admission to the Nomenklatura with a dacha at Sochi . However the old department 13 guys would have died of alcoholism many years ago ,though they would have been justly proud of inventing it .

    On the same topic, several politicians have been reported talking about identifying and stopping the actions of foreign agents on our nation. But the commentary only seems to be about foreign agents of the right.

    No understanding or acknowledgment of foreign agents of the left such as Greenpeace (Netherlands), WWF (Netherlands), Friends of the Earth (UK) with most of these registered as charitable organisations. And also GetUp with the Soros connection.

    Sent an email to my local member describing what is happening from a psychological perspective that is basically what has been said in your article . With existential dangers propaganderised and feelings more important than facts, talking about billions is ignored . This language will have no effect on a majority of voters. , even oldies are getting a green tinge

    A recent video was posted showing the vast extent of socialist infiltration in Australia.

    Wish I could share your confidence in that.

    He states that the stage of demoralisation is complete when the truth no longer matters – his words below sum up the current impasse on climate change: As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who is demoralised is unable to assess true information. The facts tell him nothing, even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents and pictures. …he will refuse to believe it… That’s the tragedy of the situation of demoralisation.

    Reminds me of Dalrymple’s legendary observation on the true purpose of communist propaganda:

    “In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

  16. John Smith101

    A person who is demoralised is unable to assess true information. The facts tell him nothing.

    They have weaponised our government agencies in order to control us, stepping stones towards the implementation of a global agenda, (UN Agenda 21 recently re-badged as Agenda 2030, an unelected global governance of the ‘commons’ by technocrats and experts) an agenda that does not have our interests in mind, least of all our national sovereignty.

    It’s as though they’ve been using silent weapons against us; just look at how science has become corrupted by government funding, let alone education and scholarship. Catastrophic global warming is the vehicle being used to drive this agenda via UNEP, etc. Paul Kelly also has something to say about this. See: Carbon the Currency of a New World Order, The Australian, 21 March 2007. If you look carefully enough you can see the strings of the marionettes.

    Our biggest danger, however, is appearing as a moderate, for it implies that one is reasonable, and able to accommodate a variety of thoughts and positions. For the globalists and their minions, this is their biggest threat. That is why they have taken over the ‘middle ground’, where normal kine reside, calling anyone right of Stalin ‘hard right’ or Nazi. For them, there can be no compromise. They see their power as absolute, over you, over me, over everyone.

  17. John Smith101

    where normal kine reside

    Sorry, where normal ‘folk’ reside.

  18. The BigBlueCat

    Like others, I have seen Yuri’s videos before. It becomes truly frightening when actual facts cannot be used to win a debate when the facts are actually important.

    We have reached a tipping point, where it no longer matters about facts or even truth. If you are against “the organisation” and the values they espouse, then you are the enemy and must be ridiculed and removed. The modern day example of the is Rugby Australia and their treatment of Israel Folau. Plus we’ve seen how the Qantas CEO treated those who were against SSM …. and how staff were required to wear a certain finger ring so people could identify them as pro-SSM. There are many more examples.

    For the left, it’s never been about truth, but about side. If you’re on the wrong side, you are to be demonised, heckled, insulted; it doesn’t matter how reasonable you are.

    The video about how to generate division and a crisis (Yuri Bezmenov: Sleepers Emerge and Messiah Appears – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZHRgTskEhE) is interesting. Could it be true that a large proportion of causes that seem to have come out of nowhere and divided people, e.g. gay marriage, have there roots in a political destabilisation campaign? If so, whose campaign? It sort of makes sense, and it does lead to demoralisation, but it seems too bizarre to be true.

  20. Geff

    Of course, if per capita growth rates move along at a reasonable clip, the tenured radicals would find life quite frustrating. Which is why the post-GFC world has been less stable than what went before.
