    in plain view all the time. However, everyone says it can not be true. Its author is "Paul Weyrich."

    He has "Paul Weyrich's Training Manual." As paraphrased by Katherine Yurica:

    1) Falsehoods are not only acceptable, they are a necessity. The corollary is: The masses will accept any lie if it is spoken with vigor, energy and dedication.

    2) It is necessary to be cast under the cloak of "goodness" whereas all opponents and their ideas must be cast as "evil."

    3) Complete destruction of every opponent must be accomplished through unrelenting personal attacks.

    4) The creation of the appearance of overwhelming power and brutality is necessary in order to destroy the will of opponents to launch opposition of any kind.

    "This essay is based on the belief that the truth of an idea is not the primary reason for its acceptance. Far more important is the energy and dedication of the idea's promoters-in other words, the individuals composing a social or political movement.

    "We must, as Mr. Weyrich has suggested, develop a network of parallel cultural institutions existing side-by-side with the dominant leftist cultural institutions. The building and promotion of these institutions will require the development of a movement that will not merely reform the existing post-war conservative movement, but will in fact be forced to supersede it-if it is to succeed at all-because it will pursue a very different strategy and be premised on a very different view of its role in society..

    Go read their plan. It is shocking that follow it in detail.
