The next step in the four step process of subversion is demoralization. Again, I'll let ex-KGB agent, Yuri Bezmenov, specialist in propaganda explain it to you:
I believe we entered the Destabilization step with the bank bailouts of 2008. I think this stage may take the full 5 years given that the United States has been more culturally resistant to the demoralization process. I think that the bank bailouts and the tidal wave of collectivist legislation that followed has awakened a large segment of the population, which leads us to this aspect of destabilization:Here the efforts of subverter narrow down to the “essentials”: the internal power structures of a target nation; the nation's foreign relations; economy and “social fiber.” If the preceding stage of DEMORALIZATION is successful, the subverter no longer has to bother about your IDEAS and your LIFE. Now he gets to the 'spinal cord' of your country and helps YOU to bring your own society into the state of DESTABILIZATION. That may take from 2 to 5 years, depending on the maturity of a nation and its ability to mobilize for resistance.
Power StruggleThe first symptom of instability is expressed as the desire of the population to bring to power those politicians and parties who are charismatic, act like good “caretakers” and promise more “security”-- not from external and foreign enemies, but rather, job “security,” “free” social services and other “pleasure strokes” provided by “Big Brother.” By concentrating the attention of a nation on short-term solutions and “improvements,” such irresponsible politicians simply procrastinate on facing “the moment of truth,” when the nation will lave to pay a much higher price for the main and basic problem-- bringing country back to stability and restoring the moral fiber.
Remember, that Yuri wrote this almost 30 years ago. He had never heard of Barack Obama. What he did know is what he saw the Soviet Union do over and over again to target countries. Democrats handing out goodies to their constituents goes without saying. Republicans have thrown goodies out also in Medicare Part D, and a host of other ways. We all know that Social Security is going to go broke without major restructuring. We've known this for at least 20 years, but you rarely hear a peep about it from either party. They focus on the short-term as Yuri says. Representative Paul Ryan has a plan to solve these long-term problems, yet he stands nearly alone in talking about it.
On the subversion chart, the methods to bring this about are populism and irresponsible power struggle. We saw mindless populism unleashed in Barack Obama's presidential campaign. The propaganda by the mainstream media was mind-blowing, which woke some people up who were not paying attention to how biased the media had become. As far as irresponsible power struggle, look at the health care bill, over 2,000 pages that none of them had read, and it was passed over the opposition of the majority of the American people. They know that they're nothing we can do about it. The combination of these two factors brings about "big brother". It divides the country into supporters of the regime and dissidents. As the regime has access to the Treasury, they have the means to create a Big Brother system. One would argue that through the tax-exempt foundations and NGOs (where the banksters hide their money) we have a whole other unelected political rail in our country, capable of doing things without the public's knowledge.
