This was a list submitted in the Congressional Record by Florida Congressman Albert Herlong Jr. in the 1960s. It was a list of steps needed in order to dismantle the American way of life. Its interesting to note which ones have taken place and which ones are taking place at this time in history.



(By the way it gets kinda long so if you can read all of these in one sitting you're a superstar)




US acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
US willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the US would be demonstration of moral strength.
Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
Extension of long term loans to Russia and Soviet Satellites.
Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
Grant recognition of Red China, and admission of Red China to the UN.
Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchevs promise in 1955 to settle the Germany question by free elections under the supervision of the UN.
Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the US has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
Allow all Soviet Satellites individual representation in the UN.
Promote the UN as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the UN as by Moscow can take over the world as easily. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
Do away with loyalty oaths.
Continue giving Russia access to the US Patent Office.
Capture one or both of the political parties in the US.
Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions, by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for Socialism, and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
Gain control of all student newspapers.
Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
Infiltrate the press. Get control of book review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
Gain control of key positions in radio, TV and motion pictures.
Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all form of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward, and meaningless forms.
Control art critics and directors or art museums. Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.
Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them censorship and a violation of free speech and free press.
Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography, and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity as normal, natural, and healthy.
Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with social religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a religious crutch.
Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of separation of church and state.
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.
Discredit the American founding fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the common man.
Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the big picture: Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
Eliminate all laws or procedures, which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavior problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat.
Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
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.
Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special interest groups should rise up and make a united force to solve economic, political, or social problems.
Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
Internationalize the Panama Canal.
Repeal the Connally Reservation so the US can not prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.

Looks like another variation of this: http://www.snopes.com/language/document/commrule.htm

Yup, it's phony. I've seen a few variations of this "list" over the years but my favorite part of the snopes article sums it up best:


When The New York Times ran an article on this piece way back in 1970, it had already been circulating for about twenty-five years. The Times reported that neither the National Archives, the Library of Congress, nor university libraries had a copy of any such document. When Montana senator Lee Metcalf looked into the issue back then, he checked with the FBI, CIA, and the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee; found that "exhaustive research" had proved the rules to be "completely spurious"; and noted that "the extreme right also follows rules, one of which is to make maximum use of false, misleading and fear-inspiring quotations." Nonetheless, numerous Congressional members received copies of the rules list from alarmed constituents and, believing that nobody else was yet aware of them, continued to insert them into the Congressional Record.

So the dirty commies haven't won after all? That's a relief.

How about just on the face of it? Remarkably, the completely obscure Herlong nailed every single societal and governmental change that has happened since 1963 AND YET the Communists haven't won (and no one's ever heard of this modern day Nostradamus). Look around on the net - there's lots of conservative whack job sites out there posting this as fact and yet not one has a scan of the actual Congressional Record pages.

Did you read the snopes article? This list is fake and has been circulating like a chain letter since, what, the 40's? The article talks about how in the 70's several congressmen introduced these phony sets of rules into the congressional record after receiving them from their constituents. Even though diligent research proved them fake, they kept getting inserted. If this is even a real list that was introduced then at best it was about the phony list he was sent by his constituents. However, my guess is that this is yet another false email with phony names and time frames.

...Ha Ha Ha, that rule about art should have been the dead giveaway there! Do people really think someone in 1963 would have written something like that? It illustrates how the ultra right wingers feel inferior about both their lack of understanding for fine art as well as their small penis size.
