Bezmenov: "Ideological subversion...is a slow process...to change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent that despite the abundance of information, no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interests of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country. It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages."
4 stages of Ideological Subversion
Bezmenov: "The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already. ...
As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who is demoralized is unable to access true information. The facts tell nothing to him. Even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents, with pictures. Even if I take him by force to the Soviet Union, and show him concentration camps, he will refuse to believe it...when the military boot crashes, then he will understand, but not before that. That is the tragedy of the situation."
