Hello, my friends, this is Dr. Beter. Today is June 30, 1978,
and this is my Audioletter No. 35.

The issues that will determine the fate of Western
Civilization were laid before the world earlier this month. It
happened in two Commencement speeches on the 7th and 8th of June.
One speaker diagnosed the decisive challenge now confronting the
West. The other speaker dealt with our response to that

The challenge to the West was set forth on June 8 by Alexander
Solzhenitsyn, the exiled Russian author, in his speech at Harvard
University in Cambridge, Mass. Pointing to the decline in
courage that typifies Western leaders today, he reminded his
listeners that "from ancient times decline in courage has been
considered the beginning of the end." Considering the cause of
our deterioration, he said: "How did the West decline from its
triumphal march to its present sickness? The mistake must be at
the root, at the very basis of human thinking in the past
centuries." And Solzhenitsyn identifies this deadly mistake as
the perversion of our governing and social systems away from
their original spiritual base. For example, speaking of the
birth of the United States, he said: "All individual human rights
were granted because man is God's creature. That is, freedom was
given to the individual conditionally, in the assumption of his
constant religious responsibility. Subsequently, however, all
such limitations were discarded everywhere in the West."

And so, according to Solzhenitsyn, we have put MAN in a
position that should be reserved for God alone. Human rights and
freedoms have come to be viewed as absolutes in and of
themselves, and man and his material needs come first above all
else. In other words, my friends, the choice before us is
MATERIALISM or SPIRITUALITY. The challenge facing the West is to
restore spirituality to our entire way of life, otherwise the end
is in sight!

On June 7, the day before Solzhenitsyn spoke at Harvard, Jimmy
Carter spoke to the graduating class of the United States Naval
Academy at Annapolis, Maryland. The audience in Cambridge had
yet to hear of the Challenge to the West from the famous Russian
exile. But the audience at Annapolis got a taste of the response
to this challenge from the President of the United States. Today
it is the United States that is the custodian of Western
Civilization; and as the alleged leader of the Western world,
Jimmy Carter bears a unique responsibility to speak the truth and
do so with wisdom and authority. He is also the only Western
leader of today who has deliberately made his religious practices
a conspicuous part of his public image. Yet you will search the
Carter speech at Annapolis in vain for any trace of recognition
of the Spiritual Challenge that Solzhenitsyn highlighted so
clearly. Just the opposite, in fact.

Jimmy Carter praised the United States' philosophy as "based
on personal freedom, the most powerful of all ideas"; and the
underlying theme of the Carter speech was that the Soviet Union
must choose "confrontation or cooperation." These words are
nothing more than a part of the propaganda barrage now under way
to condition the American public for war--a war that Western
Civilization is unlikely to survive.

Solzhenitsyn's words had the ring of truth because they are
true. But because he dared to speak in spiritual terms, he is
being attacked on all sides of the major media. Those who are
attacking Solzhenitsyn now are the very same forces of evil who,
a quarter-century ago, attacked the late great British historian
Arnold Toynbee. Toynbee, of course, wrote the monumental work
entitled "A Study of History." Over a period of three decades,
Toynbee studied in mind-boggling detail all 23 of the separate
full-fledged civilizations that are known to have existed in
human history. Through a process of comparative study of these
civilizations Toynbee arrived at some very far-reaching and
important conclusions about how they form, grow, and finally
collapse. Toynbee's "Study of History" was universally acclaimed
as an astonishing feat of scholarship--and yet he was attacked
viciously through the public media world-wide for just one
reason: Toynbee's critics were driven into a frenzy over the
religious approach he had applied to his work. In an annex to
Volume V of his "Study of History", Toynbee warned of the
repudiation of a spiritual principle. He described this
phenomenon as "the supreme danger to the spiritual health and
even to the material existence of the western body social, a
deadlier danger by far than any of our hotly canvassed and loudly
advertised political and economic maladies."

Today, my friends, we are witnessing the breakdown of one of
the five civilizations that exist in the world today--that of the
modern Western Civilization. The growth and development of any
civilization is a process of challenges and responses to those
challenges; and as Toynbee discovered, it is when a civilization
fails to respond to an important challenge, especially a moral
challenge, that breakdown occurs. History reveals that there is
no hard and fast pattern that requires breakdown to occur at all;
but once it does take place, the civilization starts
disintegrating--and from then on, modern history reveals not a
single case in which the process of collapse has ever been

History has another urgent lesson for us as well, and that is
that civilizations are never destroyed merely by an overwhelming
external attack. Instead, it's always internal decay that sets
the stage for collapse. And so it is today.

While Jimmy Carter spouts threats and propaganda according to
the dictates of those who control him, the words of Alexander
Solzhenitsyn carry the weight of true importance proven by the
entire history of human existence.

My three topics for today are:



Topic #1--After comparing the development of all the
civilizations known to man, Toynbee concluded that all passed
through a series of 5 stages. From beginning to end, a
civilization is faced by one challenge after another, and it's
the response to these challenges that governs the fate of the
civilization. In fact, according to Toynbee, people do not
develop civilizations at all, except where they are forced to do
so by challenges to their well-being. The challenge may come
from living in physically harsh territory where ingenuity and
organization afford the only avenue to a more comfortable
existence. Or it may come from predatory neighbors and
competition for desirable land. But whatever the challenge, it
is in overcoming this challenge that a society begins to
transform itself into a civilization. The uniformity of tribal
custom and activity begins to give way to specialized skills,
improved communication and organization--and a civilization is
born. At the same time, according to Toynbee, an essential
ingredient is also the emergence of a spiritual view of life that
welds people together in ways that cannot be achieved in any
other way.

After a civilization has begun to develop, it passes into the
second stage of growth and refinement. Increasing command over
the physical environment is accompanied by the development of
more advanced culture, as men become free to devote more
attention to the arts and to spiritual studies. In this dynamic
stage, the advancement of civilization is led by what Toynbee
calls a "creative minority." These creative individuals come to
be followed by other members of society, because their leadership
brings benefits to society as a whole. This is the age of true
and dynamic leaders!

The third stage defined by Toynbee is called BREAKDOWN, and is
the turning point that spells eventual doom for the civilization.
Having progressed and advanced by meeting successfully one
challenge after another, a people may reach the point where they
are unable to respond properly to the next great challenge they
face. They lose the toughness of body and firmness of spirit
that enables one to risk material possessions and even one's life
to face up to a crisis. Spiritual exhaustion is translated into
paralysis of effective action. Efforts turn not to overcoming
the real challenge at hand but to vain attempts to avoid the
challenge. But this decisive challenge refuses to go away, and
the failure to meet it properly is the turning point called
"Breakdown" by Toynbee. Once this breakdown is allowed to happen
to a civilization, it begins to fall apart.

The fourth stage, DISINTEGRATION, has taken place very rapidly
for some civilizations, very slowly for others; but in this
phase, the former creative minority is replaced by a ruling
minority--that is, true leaders vanish from the scene to be
replaced by rulers who try to preserve their power through force
and intrigue. For a while they may seem to succeed through
increasingly violent wars and even physical extension of an
empire. But all of this is like the brief, awesome brilliance of
a star that explodes into a nova, moments before it fizzles and
dies. Because the ruling minority are now ruling a society whose
fabric has been torn beyond repair, internal divisions multiply,
social disorder increases, standards of style and behavior become
confused and jumbled, more and more people seek a way out of the
unbearable present, some long for the 'good old days', others
seek to leap into the future, and still others turn to
religion--not for answers but as a means of escape.

Through it all, the spiritual dimension that has characterized
the earlier dynamic days of the civilization fails to re-assert
itself; and at the end of the 4th stage of disintegration, the
civilization reaches its fifth and final stage--DISSOLUTION. An
entire civilization, a culture, a way of life, is no more; and
the survivors of the shattered culture gradually are absorbed
into one or more new and different civilizations which build upon
the ashes of the old.

Of the 23 civilizations known to history, five remain in
existence today: the Modern Western, the Eastern Orthodox
Christian, the Islamic, the Hindu, and the Far Eastern. Of
these, the first two are dominant today--the Modern Western and
the Eastern Orthodox Christian--in terms of political and
military power, and are arranged against one another. One is the
Modern Western civilization with the United States at the nexus
of power; the other is the Eastern Orthodox Christian
civilization dominated by Russia.

Many people believe that of these two civilizations, the
Eastern Orthodox Christian civilization involving Russia and
eastern Europe has been largely transformed by the godless
religion of Bolshevik Communism into a totally different entity,
but there are major surprises in store. It is true that very
major transformations have taken place; but as I first revealed
last November in Audioletter No. 28, the death of Joseph Stalin
in 1953 marked a turning point far more basic and important than
is generally understood in the West. The first hint of the new
course to be undertaken by the Kremlin was provided in 1953 soon
after Stalin's death, by none other than Arnold Toynbee. In the
course of a series of radio lectures later published under the
title "THE WORLD AND THE WEST", Toynbee remarked on the spiritual
initiative between East and West. Toynbee dumbfounded many by
saying that this initiative "has now passed, at any rate for the
moment, from the Western to the Russian side."

In Audioletter No. 28 I explained that from the time of the
Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 until Stalin's death on March 5,
1953, Russia was ruled by a coalition of two kinds of so-called
Communists. The dominant faction during that period were the
well-known Bolsheviks, who were imposed upon Russia in 1917 with
outside financing, much of it emanating from certain sources on
Wall Street. But the other faction were the self-styled
Spiritual Communists, an indigenous religious group inside
Russia. Unlike the internationally-oriented Bolsheviks, the
so-called Spiritual Communists were and are strong nationalists,
and in secret they detested the atheism of their Bolshevik
partners. For 36 years they worked patiently to prepare for the
day when they would be able to achieve dominance over the
Bolsheviks and thereafter gradually expel the Bolsheviks from
their land. That day came with Stalin's death in 1953, as I
revealed in Audioletter No. 28; and since that day there have
been no more of the bloody purges within the Kremlin that had
been typical under the Bolsheviks. Now the power of the
Spiritual Communists in Russia has become great enough that a
concerted campaign is under way to rout out all Bolsheviks that
remain in positions of power and to expel them from Soviet
Russia. Great numbers of these old-line Bolsheviks are now being
welcomed with open arms into the United States by our Secret
Rulers, because a new Bolshevik Revolution is now being planned
to take place here!

In previous Audioletters I've pointed out that Alexander
Solzhenitsyn is not a refugee happy to escape from Russia;
instead, he is a passionate Russian patriot whose public dream is
to return there. After his arrest with great publicity on
February 12, 1974, he was exiled to the West, an experience
Solzhenitsyn has described as "spiritual castration."
Solzhenitsyn believes that America and the West went wrong 60
years ago, and he warns us of imminent disaster if we do not
change course.

Sixty years ago Christian Russia was infected with the
spiritually fatal disease of Bolshevism, and not only did the
West sit idly by and watch, but the Secret Rulers of the Western
World were the SOURCE of the Bolshevik cancer in Russia. After
saddling Russia with these evil forces, our own Secret Rulers
then supported and maintained the artificial Soviet system
established by the Bolsheviks. But now 60 years have passed.
After three and a half decades of inhuman suffering under the
Bolshevik Communists, the turning point came in 1953. Soon the
famous de-Stalinization campaign of Nikita Khrushchev started
closing the door on Bolshevism in Russia, slowly at first but
accelerating year by year. Today, 25 years after it began, the
program of the so-called Spiritual Communists in the Kremlin
against the Bolsheviks is reaching a climax. The Politburo,
which rules the Soviet Union, is totally free of Bolsheviks; and
the process of rooting out all Bolsheviks from the Soviet
governing system, while not yet completed, is now far advanced.
As a result, the open practice of religion is reviving now in
Russia and eastern Europe. Churches and monasteries are being
quietly re-opened one by one, and even major religious gatherings
have been permitted recently in eastern Europe and even religious
broadcasts. The people under Soviet domination do not as yet
understand why these things are taking place, and it's all being
done very cautiously step by step under watchful government eyes
to make sure nothing gets out of hand.

The pressure of spiritual beliefs is the greatest of all those
of the human make-up, and this is well understood by the new
breed in the Kremlin today. So the plan is to release these
long-suppressed pressures gradually but surely. A new day of
open spiritual life is dawning in Russia after a long nightmare
of horrors which we in the West have yet to experience. The
scalding warnings of Alexander Solzhenitsyn are true, my friends,
and those who are wise will weigh with care what he has to say,
for Solzhenitsyn was sent to us by the Kremlin for a purpose. By
listening to him, we in the West can begin to grasp the spiritual
dimension that is the real key to Kremlin thinking today.

In his Harvard speech Solzhenitsyn said: "Six decades for our
people and three decades for the people of eastern Europe.
During that time we have been through a spiritual training far in
advance of Western experience. Life's complexity and mortal
weight have produced stronger, deeper, and more interesting
characters than those generated by standardized Western
well-being." Toynbee would say that their civilization has been
confronted by a tremendous challenge, and in responding through
spiritual experience has met that challenge. But what of the
West? Solzhenitsyn answers: "Through intense suffering our
country has now achieved a spiritual development of such
intensity that the Western system in its present state of
spiritual exhaustion does not look attractive." And no wonder!
As Toynbee discovered, spiritual exhaustion is the sign of a
civilization undergoing breakdown. In other passages too,
Solzhenitsyn described Western civilization in its present state
as a system that has outlived its usefulness. He spoke of the
warnings of history to "a threatened or perishing society. Such
are, for instance, the decadence of art or a lack of great
statesmen." And referring to the tendency in the West to desire
an unchanging, comfortable existence above all else, he said:
"This debilitating dream of a status quo is the symptom of a
society which has come to the end of its development."

But the Solzhenitsyn indictment of the West goes far beyond
mere uselessness and spiritual fatigue on our part. The picture
he paints is that of a civilization that has, in many ways,
become an evil blot on the face of the earth. He draws upon many
examples ranging from the eves of triggering looting and rioting
in our big cities, to rampant pornography and violence in our
entertainment, to the betrayal of 30 million souls in the Far
East into torment and suffering. And in his Harvard speech,
Solzhenitsyn summarized this ugly picture in the following words:
"Very well-known representatives of your society such as George
Kennan, say: 'We cannot apply moral criteria to politics.' Thus
we mix good and evil, right and wrong, and make space for the
absolute triumph of absolute evil in the world. On the contrary,
only moral criteria can help the West against Communism's
well-planned WORLD STRATEGY. There are no other criteria."

The rulers in the Kremlin today know all too well how it
happened that Bolshevism seized Russia 60 years ago. They have
spent their entire lives in a tireless campaign not only to build
their own power but also to rid Russia of the Bolshevik plague.
Had the Bolsheviks been completely successful, all traces of
Christian faith would have been obliterated from Russia and today
the Soviet Union would be Satan's own empire in alliance with our
own Secret Rulers. The concentration camps and ovens of Hitler
were but a pale shadow of what the Bolsheviks did to Christian
Russia; and yet, by the narrowest of margins, Russia survived the
mortal illness of Bolshevism. Having endured it all, a new and
higher level of spiritual vigor is emerging in Russia today. But
the Russians have learned a bitter lesson from their battle with
the Bolsheviks. The Kremlin leaders of today would rather die
than allow this cancerous spiritual disease to continue to stalk
the earth. Their reasoning is that so long as Bolshevism
continues to exist, there will remain the threat that some day,
some day it might strike Russia once again and next time the
Bolsheviks might succeed, killing and destroying the very soul of
their land. So, to save their own souls, the Kremlin is out to
eradicate Bolshevism from the face of the earth once and for all.
In Audioletter No. 29 last December 1977, I revealed that
America's Secret Rulers are now plotting to bring about a new
Bolshevik Revolution right here in the United States. To this
end, massive numbers of old-line Bolsheviks, who have been and
are being expelled from the Soviet Union, are being brought into
the United States. Here they are being given government jobs at
all levels in preparation for the Revolution to come. Our Secret
Rulers, who belong to the same faction that installed the
Bolsheviks in Russia 60 years ago, think this will be their best
chance to achieve total control over America in the war to come
with the Soviet Union; but by doing this, our Secret Rulers are
only multiplying the resolve of the Soviet Union to destroy the
United States. To them, we are like a rabid dog. The dog itself
is a victim of a disease that makes the dog dangerous, but the
only way to eliminate the danger is to destroy the dog. Russia
was bitten once with the rabid disease of Bolshevism and nearly
died. She is determined never to be bitten again. And so, as
the evil forces of Bolshevism are gathering, secret warfare is
already under way, as I have revealed for you over the months.
As Alexander Solzhenitsyn said in his speech earlier this month,
"The fight for our planet, physical and spiritual, a fight of
cosmic proportions, is not a vague matter of the future--it has
already started. The forces of evil have begun their decisive
offensive. You can feel their pressure, and yet your screens and
publications are for prescribed smiles and raised glasses. What
is the joy about?" And on June 20, 1978, Rosalyn Carter answered
Solzhenitsyn by saying: "Alexander Solzhenitsyn says that he can
feel the pressure of evil across our land. Well, I do not sense
their pressure of evil at all."

My friends, many Americans believe that the Russians are
getting everything they want already, so there will be no war.
But the Kremlin rulers are motivated by a powerful spiritual
drive to see Bolshevism erased from the earth! We in America are
not meeting the challenge to root our Bolshevism in our midst, so
the result will be NUCLEAR WAR ONE on American soil.

Topic #2--Last month in Audioletter No. 34 I explained the
long-term significance of the Battle of the Harvest Moon. This
was history's first true space battle, fought in secret late last
September. It ended on the day of the Harvest Moon, September
27, 1977, in a crushing defeat for the United States. As I told
you last month, the Battle of the Harvest Moon was a turning
point battle, like the Battle of Midway between Japan and the
United States in World War II. And within hours after the Space
Battle ended, Washington, D.C. was jumping with reporters because
Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko had arrived at the White
House for a rare late night meeting with Jimmy Carter and
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance. The meeting, which came as a
total surprise, had been demanded by Gromyko--and had been
granted instantly. This was the meeting that was described by
breathless network reporters as resulting from a "breakthrough"
in the SALT II negotiations. But when I recorded Audioletter No.
26 just three days later on September 30, 1977, I told you the

Gromyko had demanded the late night meeting at the White House
to deliver a Soviet ultimatum in the wake of the Russian upset
victory that had just taken place in the Battle of the Harvest
Moon. As I told you then, all the reports at that time of an
alleged SALT breakthrough were complete and deliberate lies on
the part of the government and the controlled major media.
Today, nine months later, there still is no SALT II agreement!
We, the public, are supposed to have forgotten the cover story
about a breakthrough nine months ago. Instead, now we are
hearing about long, deadlocked SALT talks--and early this month
about reports of a freeze on the Talks by the Carter

The turning point Space Battle of nine months ago was the
starting gun for Russian military surprises since then. These I
have revealed for you month to month, and now America's military
predicament in any war to come with Russia will be untenable.
Man made catastrophe of unprecedented proportions is descending
upon us, ranging from geophysical warfare to the Beam Weapons of
Soviet hovering platforms called Cosmospheres. As Alexander
Solzhenitsyn put it in his speech earlier this month, "A
hundredfold Vietnam now hovers over you."

Without a clear recognition of our true plight, there's no
chance that it will be dealt with successfully. But our Secret
Rulers got themselves, and us, into the present horrible
situation through lies, secrecy, and manipulation; and now they
see no way out for themselves by telling us the truth. After
all, they have for nearly two decades kept secret the ultimate
military purpose of America's Moon Program, so how can they tell
us now! How can they tell us that the moon flights did not end
in 1972 as advertised? How can they now tell us about the secret
American moon Beam Weapon base in Copernicus Crater which was
knocked out last September? And how can they tell us of the
grave threat we now face? How, indeed!

Having opened Pandora's box, our Secret Rulers long ago
unleashed forces which are now beyond their control; and instead
of admitting their misdeeds and so giving the United States a
chance at survival, they are embarking on an "all or nothing"
Kamikaze plan like Japan in World War II. After Japan lost the
turning point naval battle of Midway with America, the Japanese
military posture started down hill. From that battle onward the
eventual defeat of Japan at the hands of the United States was
only a matter of time. In the final months of the war, Japan was
backed into a desperate corner. The war was exacting a fearful
toll by then; and yet Japan's overtures to surrender were not
accepted by the West. In sheer desperation, the Japanese turned
to an all but unthinkable plan of counterattack, the Kamikaze.
The terror of a Kamikaze attack had to be experienced to be
believed. Even the most war-hardened sailors and naval officers
found them unnerving beyond the actual damage they did, because
every Kamikaze plane was piloted by a human being whose ambition
was to die in flames while destroying an American ship by
crashing into it. Yet as nerve-shattering as they were, the
Kamikaze raids were hopeless. They were the suicidal last gasp
of a nation that had already been defeated.

Today our Secret Rulers are taking on a Kamikaze mentality.
Militarily they can already see the handwriting on the wall in
the aftermath of the Battle of the Harvest Moon, but they have
backed themselves into a corner through a web of lies and deceit
from which there is no escape. They know they have already lost,
but they are closing their eyes to this unbearable reality.
Instead, they are pulling out all the stops on the political and
military machinery now left to them, hoping against hope that
they will somehow win the conflict to come.

In the realm of foreign relations, our Secret Rulers are
performing spectacular acrobatics brought about by their recent
change of course. Four months ago in Audioletter No. 31, I
revealed that Rockefeller doors are being flung wide open to Red
China in a desperate effort to build up China as a threat against
Russia, and now this campaign is coming to the surface. For
example, in recent days the Carter administration has given its
"approval" to plans of our NATO allies to sell China militarily
sensitive equipment that is denied to Russia--as if China is now
a part of NATO! And just five days ago Leonid Brezhnev No. 2
(the ceremonial 'double' seen in public since the real Brezhnev
died last January) issued a warning about the new China Policy of
the Carter administration. He said efforts are being made "to
play the China card against the USSR. This is a shortsighted and
dangerous policy", and he added that we "may bitterly regret it."
Meanwhile in connection with the so-called China card, Japan is
being urged to hurry and cozy-up to Red China and to re-arm. To
re-arm is in direct violation of the Constitution that was
imposed on Japan by the United States after World War II, and it
is provoking intense debate there. At the same time, a complete
reversal has taken place in the posture of the United States
toward our NATO partners. For many years the policies of the
United States toward Europe have been designed to fulfill Henry
Kissinger's forecast of a Europe dominated by the Soviet Union,
since our Secret Rulers were then in bed with the Soviet rulers.
But since the day of the big double-cross last September, the
Battle of the Harvest Moon, our Secret Rulers suddenly need
Europe so a NATO Summit was held in Washington at the end of last
month. Our Secret Rulers tried to extract pledges from our
allies to close ranks against Russia, under Washington's
leadership, of course. And to sweeten relations with Britain and
France, a policy flip flop to ease restrictions on the
Anglo-French supersonic transport, the Concorde, was announced
just three days ago. And just today, Senate majority leader
Robert Byrd of West Virginia is to leave for Europe in an anxious
effort to follow up on the NATO Summit. But like everything else
our Rulers are doing now, the attempt now under way to patch
things up with NATO is just "too little and too late." Turkey,
vital to NATO's southern flank, has just signed a Treaty of
Friendship and Cooperation with Russia; and West Germany, the
linchpin of NATO, is already making its peace with Russia. Early
last month, on May 6, Leonid Brezhnev No. 2 was in West Germany
on a State visit. On that day, Brezhnev No. 2 and Chancellor
Helmut Schmidt signed a 25-year Trade Agreement. AND THIS IS

But the most serious of all the failures of our Secret Rulers
concerning NATO is right next door, in Canada. Three months ago
I detailed the Soviet-French intrigues through which Canada is
being prepared as a base for eventual invasion of the United
States by the Russian army. Early this month, on June 2, Canada
expelled all United States fishing vessels from her territorial
waters. It was just an echo of Russia's action last September
just before the Battle of the Harvest Moon. At that time the
Soviet Union abruptly expelled all European community fishing
vessels from her northern waters. The reason for Russia's action
last September was military, as I explained then in Audioletter
No. 26. And the reason for Canada's action now is military also,
because now the sea-lift of Soviet troops and equipment to
isolated landing points on the Canadian coast line is being
speeded up.

Prior to the Battle of the Harvest Moon space disaster of last
September, the deliberate betrayal of friends and allies was part
of the grand design of our Secret Rulers. As a result, their
pathetic attempts now to patch everything up will not succeed.
But they are in a dream world of their own now and their Kamikaze
plans are forging ahead in the military realm as well as in
foreign affairs. Late last month, for example, Navy Secretary W.
Graham Claytor launched a campaign to convince the American
public, if not the Russians, that we are well able to fend off
the tremendous fleet of Soviet submarines. Speaking of the
critical field of anti-submarine warfare, Claytor boasted: "The
qualitative edge that we hold over the Soviets in both equipment
and personnel is awesome." And reports have been made public to
paint the Navy's Tolderay Sonar Systems as a breakthrough, light
years ahead of anything the poor backward Soviet Union might
have. And just for good measure--American undersea warfare
specialists have been quoted to the effect that Russian subs are
so noisy that they are easy to detect. But, my friends, the
sheer numbers of submarines the Soviets can put to sea enables
them to overwhelm NATO tracking systems. This they have proven
on several occasions, as I've discussed last August in
Audioletter No. 25. Beyond that, the Russians are actually well
ahead of the West in the silencing of submarines. For example,
there are the Russian missile-planting Mini-subs which have crept
into our own territorial waters to plant underwater-launched
nuclear missiles--which today are still there waiting to be
fired! These Mini-subs are invisible to all of our Sonar
Systems, both Active and Passive.

In Audioletter No. 16 for September 1976, I described these
Mini-subs, one of which had become trapped in Chesapeake Bay by a
malfunction that killed the crew. It was a unique opportunity to
learn how the Russian sonar-defeating system works; but in
Audioletter No. 17 I revealed how then President Gerald Ford
threw away this opportunity. As for the full-sized Soviet subs,
many of the older ones are relatively noisy, but those built more
recently have a surprise in store. Knowing that American
submarine detection technology is built almost totally around
acoustic techniques, many of the later Russian subs are equipped
with what is called an Artificial Acoustic Signature. Each of
these newer subs employs the world's most advanced design
features for the purpose of minimizing propeller and wake noises,
but in normal day-to-day operations they employ devices called
Cavitators that greatly increase the noise the submarine makes as
it moves through the water. These are the noises that are
detected by our Passive Sonar Systems, including the Tolderay
Systems that are supposed to be such a decisive breakthrough.
These noise patterns, or Signatures as they are called, are being
programmed into the computers that are the key to our new Sonar
Systems; but on the day that NUCLEAR WAR ONE erupts, all the
Russian subs that are equipped with the Artificial Signature
System will retract their Cavitators. Then as they streak across
the oceans toward the United States, they will do so in near
total silence, and the slight noises that they do make in their
wartime configuration will be unfamiliar and unrecognizable to
our heavily computerized sonar defenses. The result, if the
Russian technologists are right, will be the equivalent of a
breakdown in our sonar defenses just when we need them most.

Similar observations can be made in other areas of our
military situation--such as the Cruise Missile which was
demonstrated in public at White Sands, New Mexico, a few days
ago. But, you may ask, what about our secret weapons programs?
Two months ago I revealed that Operation Desk Top has been
reactivated. Under cover of oil and gas drilling operations at
sea off the east coast of the United States, efforts are under
way to plant a new fleet of Super ICBMs in launching sites
beneath the sea. Exxon, which is doing this work off the east
coast for the CIA, spent incredible reimbursable sums in order to
lock up large areas of the Baltimore Canyon area now being
explored. But some of the other companies now drilling in the
area are actually interested in oil--and so far they have met
with disappointment. Early this month, on June 2nd, Conoco
announced that their first test well had turned out to be a
failure. A company spokesman said: "I've caught a deep
disappointment. We spent four million dollars and drilled out
there for 53 days." Meanwhile the revived missile-planting
project is speeding up. Soon the Howard Hughes mystery ship, the
Glomar Explorer, is scheduled to put to sea to begin planting CIA
Super-Missiles in the Pacific. As I have discussed in the past,
this was the original mission for which the Glomar Explorer was
designed, and now the official explanation has fallen back to the
original cover story as well, and that is that the Explorer will
be testing undersea mining hardware and gathering manganese
nodules from the ocean floor. Can you imagine?

In Audioletter No. 20 for January 1977, I described the
capabilities and gave the exact locations of the original fleet
of CIA Undersea Super Missiles. Until their containment vessels
sprung leaks and they were ruined one by one, these were by far
the most awesome on earth. If more should be successfully
planted now, they will share the same dubious distinction. But
it will not matter. As long as the missiles remain in their
undersea resting places, they will be safe enough, they cannot be
reached even with the Particle Beam Weapons; but should they ever
be launched, they will be destroyed as they rise from the sea,
because hovering over the site of each missile the Kremlin plans
to have at least two Cosmospheres. As soon as the CIA missile
breaks the surface of the sea, while it is still moving slowly
and an easy target, it will be blasted by Particle Beam Weapons.
And so, after spending vast taxpayer funds, and tremendous effort
to implant the new missiles, our Secret Rulers will achieve
nothing more than several mammoth fireballs at sea. Russia
itself will not be scratched. Is it any wonder that the Kremlin
refers to the Russian Cosmosphere as the anti-war machine?

But the most suicidal aspect of all in our Secret Rulers'
actions now is the political aspect. Having decided that they
cannot tell us the truth so that we can all work together, they
reason that they must instead achieve utter rigid control over us
all; and to this end, all of their former plans for emergency and
DICTATORSHIP are being re-oriented toward a new end. The
so-called Second American Revolution proposed by John D.
Rockefeller III fizzled in its original form, but now it is being
revived under new colors. Suddenly, as if everyone in America
suddenly got the same idea at the same moment, the so-called
Taxpayers' Revolt is erupting. The first American Revolution
began over taxes, so it is being tried again with the goal of
manipulating the American people into our own undoing over
grievances which in themselves are valid. Already there is a
drumbeat of calls for changes to the Constitution to limit taxes,
and ultimately the total dismantling of our Constitution is
intended to turn into a new Bolshevik Revolution. Nothing could
be concocted that would more surely seal our doom at the hands of
the Soviet Union--but that is what is planned! And at the
supreme moment of crisis, when all are calling for an experienced
hand at the helm, someone will be ready. He is preparing now for
that moment--his name: NELSON ALDRICH ROCKEFELLER. Shades of his
25th Amendment!

As America sinks toward final destruction, Modern Western
Civilization is being dragged along towards its termination. But
why is this taking place? The answer was given 600 years ago by
the great Arab historian, Ibn Khaldun. It is all explained in
his introduction to world history called the Muqaddama recently
translated and published by Princeton University Press. Arnold
Toynbee said it was "Undoubtedly the greatest work of its kind
that has ever yet been created by any mind at any time or place."

In my very first Audio Book Talking Tape nearly four years
ago, I chronicled the birth of an incredibly powerful family
dynasty in America a century ago--the Rockefeller Dynasty. By
the beginning of the 20th Century their power had increased to
the point where the original governing system of the United
States was being supplanted by their control. Instead of a
system capable of continual renewal and regeneration, our country
became entangled ever more tightly with the destiny of a single
dynasty. Today, this entanglement is complete. As goes the
Rockefeller Cartel, so goes America; but as Ibn Khaldun
established over six centuries ago, the natural life span of all
true dynasties is approximately 100 years. This happens because
in the course of three generations, the original qualities of
toughness and group feeling are lost. In place of striving there
is luxury, in place of courage there is cowardice, in place of
personal strength there are clients and followers--the dynasty
becomes senile and breaks down. Today, the four Rockefeller
brothers of the third generation are on the decline. They still
command great resources, and their client followers are legion,
but they are surely losing control. Their policies have already
destroyed what our Forefathers created, leaving the destiny of
our land tied to the destiny of their dynasty. Now the
Rockefeller Dynasty is reaching the end of its natural life; and
as it collapses, it is taking with it the hollow shell of what
once was known as the United States of America!

Topic #3--When a civilization comes to an end, it does not mean
the end of all life for those who made up that civilization.
What it does mean is the end of a way of life; and that, my
friends, is what lies ahead for those who survive the man-made
calamity to come.

Sixty years ago the Eastern Orthodox Christian Civilization
centered on Russia was thrown into a desperate battle for its
life. Through that battle, it has itself been changed. We in
the West do not view life from the perspective of sixty years of
mortal combat for spiritual survival, so we would no doubt be
shocked by some of the concepts of the new breed in today's
Kremlin. The very, very important fact remains--very powerful
religious convictions are today a determining factor guiding the
policies of Soviet Russia. In what country of the West can the
same be said? The old-line Bolsheviks who seized Russia in 1917
were parasites, destructive in every respect. By contrast, the
self-styled "Spiritual Communists" in the Kremlin today have a
zeal to achieve bigger and better things for the glory of Mother
Russia; and as they see it, for the glory of God. And once
mankind is rid of the rabid disease of Bolshevism, the vistas
they believe they see before them are breath-taking.

Early in this century the Russian discipline called
"Cosmonautics" was founded by a man named Tsiolkovsky. At that
time space travel was so far in the future as to seem a fantastic
dream, but Tsiolkovsky began his studies of Cosmonautics with the
dictum: "The planet earth is the cradle of mankind, but man
cannot forever remain in the cradle." Today American space men
are called "Astronauts", Russian space men "Cosmonauts", and the
difference goes far deeper than the name. To the Western mind
space travel is mainly a stimulating technical challenge and an
adventure, sort of a cosmic sporting event; but the Russians see
it very differently. To them, space travel is the beginning of
man's expansion outward into his new, larger habitat--the solar
system, and some day the stars. Already this change of
perspective is reflected in the Soviet Cosmostrategy and
Cosmopolitics, which I described four months ago in Audioletter
No. 31.

Kremlin planning for the exploration and occupation of space
has already gone far beyond the immediate narrowly military
applications we see today. And in one respect, Russia's plans
for man's first Interplanetary Empire harken back to ancient
Rome. In the Roman Empire conquered peoples became citizens of
Rome, thereby sharing to some extent in the privileges and
benefits the Empire had to offer, and considerable autonomy was
allowed in terms of local customs and religious practices so long
as they did not threaten or trouble Rome. Under the rule of
those in the Kremlin today, the Soviet Union is beginning to do
much the same thing. This is showing itself even in the program
to begin expanding the Russian empire into space. Several weeks
ago Soyuz 28 was sent into orbit with one Russian and one
non-Russian Cosmonaut, a Czech. Four days ago the second
non-Russian Cosmonaut, a Pole this time, flew into orbit aboard
Soyuz 30. The crew of Soyuz 30 docked with the Salyut 6 Space
Station and entered it to join the crew of Soyuz 29, who were
already there. The Commander of Soyuz 29, by the way, is the
Russian Neil Armstrong, Vladimir Kovalyonok. As I revealed last
October in Audioletter No. 27, Kovalyonok was the Commander of
the first Soviet manned flight to the moon which landed October
16, 1977, in Jules Verne Crater on the back side of the moon. In
the view of Russian Cosmonautics, man will inevitably move
outward from Earth to the planets and stars, and it is meant to
do so. So the Russian approach to space travel gives very heavy
emphasis to philosophical and psychological factors as well as
technical and physical training. Cosmonauts are taught to view
the new environment of space as one that is a natural extension
for man but one requiring humility and caution. Part of the
heritage of Russia is that of the seafaring Vikings of ages past.

Today as spiritual rebirth is dawning in Russia, the Russian
spirit is being drawn upward and outward to the limitless seas of
space. Western civilization will soon perish, but not the human
spirit. Lest we forget, our Lord's mercy and justice are meant
at least as much for those who have suffered for decades as it is
for those of us who have yet to suffer.

Until next month, God willing, this is Dr. Beter. Thank you,
and may God bless each and every one of you.
