[Filmed Lecture on Communism vs Capitalism by US Government Employee, ca 1960s] Pt. 1 of 2

By Charles T. Vetter United States Information Agency

04:19:40 Charles Vetter introduces himself & his past postings while standing in front of map & blackboard.

...competition of ideas between the Free World & the Communist must always know & understand your enemy & your competition. We didn t asked for the struggle & the fight...

04:20:37 ...this presentation is an attempt to look at their language & appeal realistically.. Gestures, writes on blackboard & explains similar words in Russian & English; and words sounding similar by meaning different things which will confuse. ...Russians are creating their meaning of words, their concept of life so their message will go thru & the Free World message will be filtered out. Explains how Soviets will explain things to you . Outlines on blackboard Soviet ideas of class warfare as thought of by USSR.

04:25:50 ...and when the masses are so elevated you come into the final ideal stage of society, they say Communism, heaven brother heaven, Communism. When you see this is a rather ideal do-it-yourself chart to help people answer a very basic question: How am I doing? They say for instance that they can place people on History so they can analyze their state of life & know the past, analyze the present & predict the future. But before we apply this we have to bring it up to date the way Lenin did... ...Lenin, you may remember, said: These clever Capitalists have found a way of delaying the Revolution, they have gone out & gotten colonies & they re sucking the blood, bringing the wealth of Colonies back to Europe & England & delaying the Revolution... Vetter says USSR says USA are Economic Imperialists which must come to us for gasoline, parts, Peace Corpsmen...

04:28:27 ...they [Communists] predict they will be in the Communist stage in 20 years. They say China is not yet sufficiently industrialized, so China is just on the road to building Socialism. Romania, Poland, East Germany, Hungary they say have an economic basis but their People s Democracies w/ more than one party on the books so they are just approaching Socialism. They say Czechoslovakia is the only other country which has reached the Socialist stage w/ its new 1960 Constitution. Where would they put these countries: India, Pakistan, Vietnam, Korea, Philippines... They say these countries are just emerging from feudalism...

04:29:30 ...they say you can t basically change it, but you can speed it up if you listen to the proper theory & leadership. You can go can go over the worst aspects of Capitalism, come into the higher social, economic, political stage of Socialism if you follow the right leadership. Continued...

[Filmed Lecture on Communism vs Capitalism by US Government Employee, ca 1960s] Pt. 2 of 2

Continued... ...I think you see that this is one of their most appealing slogans: We can help you catch up w/ history fast...many of my friends in other countries have said to me...looks pretty logical to me. But you know when you talk about this to the average person in the United States, I think his reaction is words, words, words; theory, theory, theory. We have today in the United States, what the Communists are promising in the distant future, in the most advanced Communist countries.

04:30:30 Vetter s view: ...after living in the Soviet Union in 1959, is that developed Free World countries have achieved the kind of economic & social justice Marx was calling for w/ real justification 100 years ago. We have a higher standard of performance & justice for our masses of people...

04:31:03 I love very much, Pakistan, these people have seen there is a change & they are looking for a change...there s been a revolution in communication at the village level all over the world & people are demanding a better life; and they say if we can t get it from the Free World we ll get it any place we can, and sometimes this type of explanation has great appeal. Its much like a Salvation religion...

04:32:24 ...does the Free World have a counterpart package...? I think you ll find in the Free World we have many, many packages; not one. But not only do they have their theory, like the Bible or Koran, the same all over the world but they also have done their homework in projecting this...

04:33:00 Let me assume the role of a Soviet & take questions from you the audience & answer as they are being answered all over the world by the Soviets. Does phoney accent presentation of Soviet government official & then both questions & answers

04:34:45 If we are such a peace people why did we intervene in Hungary in 1956...?

04:35:40 What is our Soviet interest in Cuba? re missiles

04:37:10 Berlin Wall & nuclear testing? re French nuclear testing in North Africa.

04:39:25 Goes back to normal lecture voice. We have many working Free World solves human problems...I believe the alternative to dictatorship is teamwork...I m basically optimistic...this is why Free society is very productive.

04:40:48 We ve got to use our heads, we ve got to use our hearts. Love is a very powerful tool...we ve got to use our morality, our working religions, our experience in solving human problems in the Free World fashion. The End.
