How Leftist Intellectuals are Manufactured to Subvert India’s Civilization


When we see the unraveling of Leftists’ anti-India hatred and its deep rot, many lay-people are shocked – “How could it have come to this pass?”  Indeed.  Everyday a new “revolutionary” is created by the media out of the blue and carried to the top of the news cycle and becomes the new star kid on the block.  Well, it is important to remember how it is all done.  Yes, this “revolution of conscience and freedom” business does not happen… it is manufactured!  Let us understand how from someone who used to do it in India.  Before he fell in love with the country and her ethos.

How Leftist Intellectuals are Manufactured in India

Yuri Bezmenov was a journalist for RIA Novosti and a former PGU KGB informant.  He was stationed in India and inspite of his work that was to subvert India’s interests he started loving India.  He started dissenting Moscow’s activities and policies in the country.

Here he explains how in India, Soviets used different ways to cultivate Professors, Journalists, Intellectuals, Film Makers, and opinion makers and then use them for the propaganda that was necessary to subvert the nation’s very core, which he loved so much!  He also explains how those very people who served the leftist masters in Soviet Union had grown too big – like Sheikh Mujibur Rehman in Bangladesh – were executed by the Soviets themselves.  Why?  Because they knew too much.

KGB’s only 50% work was done on espionage.  The rest was in ideological warfare.  These activities create a situation where despite perceived “balance of information” – no one is able to come to a sensible conclusion.  In fact it harbors confusion.  That confusion is used to subvert a nation’s basic thought process.  People are constantly in limbo and even normal public comes to the wrong conclusion.  Most often however, no counter narrative is allowed or provided.  Which helps the leftist narrative succeed!

He shows how the “great Chhayavaad Hindi poet” Sumitranandan Pant was cultivated.  His poems were full of “socialist and humanist” influence.  Just for reference, Pant received Nehru Peace Prize by the Soviet Union for his book.  He received Jnanpith Award in 1968 and also Sahitya Kala Academy, Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan.

He smirks to say how these cultivated “Useful Idiots” and “Political Prostitutes” would believe that they were genuinely important and great people and ignore how the Soviets were employing them against their own country.

He discusses a Four-stage process which is used to subvert a nation.  He oversaw such activities being carried on in India.  And given his experience he says things on complete authority as one who was in KGB’s propaganda unit.  Given how we have “Dial a Revolutionary” situation in India, with one “revolutionary” after another appearing out of woodworks, it is important to understand how this “revolutionary business” really works!

He says something really interesting – There are no “grassroot revolutions” period!

The process is “legitimate” as it is not “illegal”.   The are the Four Stages of Subversion.

  1. Demoralization (15-20 years): Pumped Marxist-Leninist ideologies into the soft heads.  This work is done – for example by Indians on Indians after having been brainwashed in a way where he is showed concentration
  2. Destabilization (2-5 years): Subverter does not care of your ideas or consumption.  Foreign relation, Defense and Economy is attacked.  Influence of Marxist-Leninist.
  3. Crisis (6 weeks)
  4. Normalization (indefinitely): can last forever.  After the violent change has been brought in.  It is a cynical expression.  Put a big brotherly government and rule the country directly.  When the job is completed, the subverters are not needed and they know too much.  Happened in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Nicaragua etc.  Same pattern.

Conclusion: Manufactured Freedoms and Our Duty to ourselves

As we see, clearly articulated by someone who was doing the subversion hands-on in India, how this country’s very ethos has been subverted from within by manufacturing sepoys.  Make no mistake, this process of subversion has been taken over by various other forces like the US/Islamists after the fall of the Soviet Union.  The work is on.  The sepoys are being created and cultivated.  They are used against the nation and its very ethos.  To understand the new forces working on this process – I encourage you to read Rajiv Malhotra’s Breaking India: Western Interventions in Dravidian and Dalit Faultlines.

We can either believe in them who are but mouthpieces of an external colonial power – or look at things via the clarity of our own perception.  It is time to reclaim our national ethos back.

For, democracy is not a spectator sport.  It is a hands-on work in process of fully aware citizens.  Are you doing what you need to bequeath a nation which echoes the ethos that has promoted peace, love, compassion and spiritual upliftment?

  1. This Sir, is an excellent article you have written. You have delved deep into the root cause of the revolutionary fish market. Thoroughly enjoyed and felt aghast at the videos. And Russia was supposed to be our friend. Bloody communists.

    The only true friend India ever had has been Japan – being a Dharmic nation, they understand what India stands for. Israel is a supposed friend, but then Judaism is an enemy of Dharma.

    In fact even CIA (based on a n old declassified document) followed a similar agenda. Some of their gems include.

    – Work slowly.
    – Contrive as many interruptions to your work as you can.
    – Do your work poorly and blame it on bad tools, machinery, or equipment. Complain that these things are preventing you from doing your job right.
    – Never pass on your skill and experience to a new or less skillful worker.

    You can read it here.

  2. This is very well re-searched article. Problem is we as junta need to understand that if something gets political then there must be vested interest involved.

  3. Beautiful. I saw this happen with folks that used to live within about a kilometer radius of the House of Soviet Culture in Trivandrum. In those days I used to think how they could be so blind to reality and tow the communist line. Now this article has given me more clues as to how this happened. Many of my ‘educated ‘ friends still are communists even when this ideology has been shown to be fatally flawed in countries around the world. And these ‘educated’ friends happen to be influential in society and they will brainwash some more in their lifetimes. Hopefully this vicious cycle will end in a couple of generations!
