The Rules For Revolution
"The Communist/Socialist Rules for Revolution"
HISTORICAL NOTE: It is our understanding that an earlier version of this frightening document was first unearthed
in Dusseldorf, Germany in the early part of the year of 1919. It was exposed, later in that year, in the "Bartlesville
Examiner-Enterprise" in the state of Oklahoma (USA).
It is also our understanding that in 1946, the attorney general of Florida obtained a copy of a later version of the document
from a member of the American Communist Party. We have also been informed that a more current version appeared in "The
Los Angeles Times" on Nov. 9, 1998. It has since been brought to light by other concerned citizens across America.
It also now periodically makes the rounds on the Internet.
If you are not aware of this disturbing set of rules of engagement and conquest, or even if you
have heard of it and might wish to be reminded of it once again — here is the basic essence of what it is and what it
strives to accomplish.
The Rules for Revolution
CORRUPT THE YOUNG. Intensify their exposure to violence, sex and drugs.
Draw them away from religion. Support a greater development of all of their superficialities.
INFILTRATE THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM. Become deeply involved with the educational
system of the nation. It must always be remembered that one of the first things that must be done in order to take and
retain control, is to subvert and dominate the minds of the youth of the nation.
GET CONTROL OF PUBLIC COMMUNICATION. Infiltrate the schools of journalism.
Move into the areas of management of the metropolitan newspapers and the broadcast networks. Infiltrate the motion picture
DIVIDE AND CONQUER. Press for even greater divisions of the people into hostile
groups. Divide them by race, nationality, sex religion, age, financial position, culture or anything else that can be
used to create serious fractures within the social order.
DESTROY RELIGION. Do all that can be done to remove religion from all public
areas. Isolate all that remains and promote any competing alternates that can be used to eliminate whatever is left.
USE LANGUAGE AS A WEAPON. Speak of supporting democracy (in the name of liberalism)
and stand up for what you claim as good values, but use every method possible to pervert, destroy or take them over.
Create the new order in their names, since Communism and Socialism are not always labels that are appreciated as are
USE THE GULLIBLE AND IDEALISTIC. They are practically begging to be exploited
in the name of whatever they feel emotionally attached to. Use what they think they believe, to better use them for
INCITE CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE. Create labor unrest and strikes whenever possible.
Promote mob demonstrations and demands for everything that will undermine the national stability.
DESTROY HUMAN VALUES. Do all that you can to undermine the old moral values.
Recognize personal discipline and integrity as conditions that must be eradicated. Do not forget that chaos is the goal.
To reach this goal, it will be necessary to strip away all inhibitions.
COMMAND THE POLITICAL ARENA. Get into American politics and identify those
who can be used and those who must be eliminated. Stop those who fight against the Communist and Socialist agenda with
everything from character assassination, to any other creative fictions that can be deployed to put doubt in the minds of
APPLY THE ART OF GRADUAL REDUCTION. Institute all the changes necessary to reduce
the freedoms and rights of the people. Sudden removal is almost never possible. Gradual removal over extended
periods of time can almost always be counted on to be successful.
AFTERTHOUGHT: It is not difficult to recognize a considerable number of these "rules" as they are being applied throughout
our nation and in so many areas of our public and our private lives.
It is also disturbingly easy to see the debilitating effects that are thus caused by such actions. But it is most
disturbing of all to realize that the vast majority of the population does not wish to be concerned, even as our social and
political structure begins to collapse all around us — even as we move so clearly into our decline.
Something to think about.
It has been called to our attention that a few web sites and associated contributors
and various "research" locations are claiming that this document, in all it's forms, throughout the years, is a "fake."
After checking these sources very carefully, we have come to the conclusion that they
are groups and web sites that represent viewpoints in general that move from slightly to very far to the left of
the American political spectrum. We realize that it is seen to be in their best interest to harshly disclaim this particular
We felt that this should be brought to your attention.
