In 1970, Yuri Bezmenov, a 31-year-old KGB officer specializing in propaganda, defected to Canada. Bezmenov (also known as Tomas Schuman) was sickened by the oppressive nature and toll of communist totalitarianism, and wanted to devote his life to educating Western nations, America in particular, on what he and the KGB had been doing to us, to undermine and ultimately destroy our societies.
In 1984 Bezmenov published a small book, Love Letter to America, in which he explained in great detail how the Communists running the USSR were working to destroy America—not using physical weapons, but through what he described as “cultural subversion.”
Due to a multitude of memes and short clips on social networks, Bezemonov is becoming more famous than ever. I discuss the cultural significance of Bezmenov with my guest Cason Pratt.

Wow. So important to REALLY look at and rethink things, even when it’s terrifying! No seriously, some people are afraid to look. But if we aim to stand on (and stand up for!) truth, then we have a responsibility. Thanks!
Thank you, Jim & Cason!
Watching Yuri expose the
methods being used to destroy our country—indeed every country—just might jar more good folks into action. Now is the time.
Excellent job, guys!”
It really is amazing and scary, the things Yuri discusses in his presentations from the 1980s. He’s so spot on, it’s as if he came from current times and used a time machine to go back to warn people.
