Why murderous and powerful imperialist agents held so much power... (1)
Why did honest communists and revolutionaries in the USSR not prevent sworn vicious enemies of socialism from penetrating and ultimately controlling the highly sensitive and extremely important domain of the government's secret services?
And now only the secret services, but eventually the leading positions in the ruling Communist Party and government?
All leading to the final demise of the Soviet Union.
Subversion – a systematic and powerful process...
It is characteristic – in fact essential – for the “secret services”, i.e. the enormous lie, spy, criminal, provocation, subversion and regime change, terror, drug-runnning (at least in the United States), torture, war and mass murder apparati of the imperialist countries to aim to infiltrate, misdirect, overwhelm and eventually destroy domestic - and everywhere possible, foreign – progressive and revolutionary organizations and movements.
For imperialists and reactionaries operating in socialist, progressive or anti-imperialist countries, counter-revolution cannot always be achieved immediately. Successful subversion may require long periods of large-scale systematic infiltration into key and secondary positions while the malefactors manifest ostensibly positive behavior and efforts – aiming to disguise their utterly seditious objectives. Such was the case with Soviet Union. And not only with the Soviet Union.( Collapse )
