"I was at last beginning to see how ignorant I had become, how long since I had read anything except Party literature. I thought of our bookshelves stripped of books questioned by the Party, how when a writer was expelled from the Party his books went, too. I thought of the systematic rewriting of Soviet history, the revaluation, and in some cases the blotting out of any mention of such persons as Trotsky. I thought of the successive purges. Suddenly I too wanted the answers to the questions Senator Hickenlooper was asking and I wanted the truth. I found myself hitting at the duplicity of the Communist Party."
Dr. Bella Dodd
(1904-1969) head of the New York State Teachers Union , member of the Communist Party of America (CPUSA) in the 1930s and 1940s, later a vocal anti-communist
School of Darkness, Chapter 16 (1954)

Reader comments about this quote:
In Amerika, there is but one major Party with fascists on one side and communists on the other. The Party's literature (scholastic party line in the theocratic seminaries {government schools}, by word with the theocratic evangelists {all levels of media} and misinformation filling social communication) is replacing written knowledge of liberty, freedom, natural law, justice and inalienable rights. By personal experience, and as complained about by other researchers, more and more legal information concerning natural law and liberty, along with their domestic / foreign applications and mention are being removed from libraries, the internet and everywhere else. Socialism, in all its many forms can not allow for anything that would shine a light on what it really is.

    Jeez, this is starting to really happen in the US now. ESPN fired baseball legend Curt Schilling and then edited him out of the documentary "Four Days in October," which details the Boston Red Sox's epic four-game comeback against the New York Yankees in the 2004. Known as "the bloody sock game," ESPN took out the scenes of Curt Shilling -- and he was the one with the bloody sock. In Puerto Rico, federal attorneys are launching a 'Climate Fraud Investigation' against Exxon -- 20 more US attorneys general are preparing to do the same in the US. The Bureau of Land Management is claiming more land under federal control (i.e. ownership -- which they are forbidden to do) than there is land NOT under their control -- claiming all unpopulated lands as their own. The ignorance of the People and the several States is unbelievable!

    Ideology does not constitute Reality.

    The cardinal virtue for which ideologues characteristically want is Humility.

    Religionists whom they are, their illusive, predicated upon Pride, notions of themselves are integrally connected to their allegiance to their resentment infused and informed, necessarily psychopathological, ideologies.

    Existing, as they do, in states of ideology circumscribed bondage, they unfailingly are perfect studies in ideational inflexibility.
     -- Patrick Henry, Red Hill     
    "Duplicity" and the cutting edge of Liberty and Freedom on a world stage. Unity provides the backbone of the blade, let is be forged in honesty. Philandering and purloining among lesser/greater bureaucrats must come to an end, if confidence is to be restored in government leadership.

    Cancel culture is the epitome of socialism  ban this, ban that, shut these people up, take away their voice, lock 'em up, ban them from the public square.  The thought police are more empowered than ever  and they see it as their duty to silence any opposition to 'the Party' line.  It's one party rule  classic communism.
