"Kommunist," the Moscow organ which gives the Party Line inside the Soviet Union
recently said this of Moral Re-Armament:
ORAL RE-ARMAMENT is certainly the prominent association which aims to save Western civili-
zation from Communism. It has staff headquarters in Europe, Asia and America. These people
fhold assemblies in Latin America and even organize Pan-African conferences.... The leaders
of Moral Re-Armament claim it is superior to capitalism and Communism.... At a time when the morals
of the bourgeois world are bankrupt, the prophets of Moral Re-Armament say that the world requires an
ideology to satisfy the longing for absolute standards, an ideology able to move the herats of the privi-
leged as well as the under-privileged. . . . They train fficers, philosophers, film directors and move with
200, 300, or 400 people in strength with up-to-date technical equipment, radio transmitters, libraries....
Not long ago they issued a call to Communists through full pages in the pres.. In this the Communists
are challenged to take part in 'the greatest revolution of all time.' These people say the problem is
neither Communism nor capitalism, but the necessity to change human nature to the roots. They puff
themselves up with pride and even suggest to Marxists they should change and take up an ideology that
is for everybody. This is really the most bold stroke that has come from these propagandists of reconcilia-
tion and forgiveness."
As Mr. Khrushchev and his followers try to explain attitudes of Moral Re-Armament,
it is important to state what Moral Re-Armament is for and what it is against.

present and destroy the future; a United States which
criticizes other countries but is itself deeply divided.
Leaders of society and government who betray their
trust, and use influence and power to force decadence
upon us-bigots who try to persecute those unwilling
to compromise or to cover up.
Pacifism, which seems t make war certain. Leaders who
cry "peace" but create conditions that lead to war. Phil-
osophers and fools who cry "peace" but train men to live
like a beast, and so doom him to live like a beast, treat
others like beasts, and march the path to slaughterhouse
Reaction, which strives to change everybody else except
Steely selfishness of right, acid bitterness of left which
create class war, lock-outs, unofficial strikes and lead
inevitably to national bankruptcy and war.
Human "honesty" which publishes other people's short-
comings while covering up its own, tells men to get as
much as they can in return for as little as possible.
Homosexuality, lesbianism, pornography, adultery, lies
which say sin is no longer sin when enough people come

personal compromise and position to rob the nations of
