Martial Arts is combat by definition. The goal of combat is to win. In order to win it is critical that we know both ourselves AND our enemy. Sun Tzu—the famous Chinese warlord and author of The Art of War—stated:

Know your enemy and know yourself and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster.

Sun Tzu

Wars can take different shapes. The current invasion of Ukraine by Russia is a “Hot war,” as were World War I, World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam, America’s Revolutionary War against Britain and our own Civil War.

But wars can be of the “Cold” variety. Post WWII, Russia and the United States began its “Cold War,” which lasted for 44 years and 9 months. It began on 12 March 1947 and ended on 26 December 1991 (Wikipedia). It was a war of Russian Communism versus American Freedom.

The following excerpt from Wikipedia carries an ominous statement made by Nikita Khrushchev, Premier of the Soviet Union.

On 18 November 1956, while addressing Western dignitaries at a reception in Moscow’s Polish embassy, Khrushchev infamously declared, “Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. ‘We will bury you!'

This statement, “We will bury you,” from Khrushchev was not a joke. He meant every word of it. Clearly, the goal of Communism is to destroy America, and all Americans need to know the playbook of the Communist ideology to prevent our great country from being beaten and buried, as Khrushchev arrogantly bloviated. Sadly, Communist tactics and strategies have been working thus far. Make no mistake. The United States of America is in a war. It’s not a “Hot War,” at least not yet, hopefully. It’s still a “Cold War” but war it is. Just look at the socialist and Communist manifestations in present day America—the attacks on our Constitution, especially the 1st and 2nd Amendments of free speech and the right to keep and bear arms; riots and destruction; the ravaging of law and order, controlling our educational system and the evil insanity of sexualizing children—and on and on and on.

Following are 45 goals that Communists have used and are using to destroy America. Educating ourselves and our families is critical in maintaining the freedom, independence and sovereignty we have enjoyed up to this moment in time. Let us not lose America for failing to recognize what is happening. If we’re to succeed in this fight, we must know our enemy and that enemy is the destructive ideology of Communism and its allies.

Take a few minutes to read the list of Communist goals below and you will be shocked. It is a “Must Read” if our beloved America is to remain the greatest country in human civilization. Know this enemy!

  22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

  29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

  40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
  41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
  42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force[”] to solve economic, political or social problems.
