The appearance of an interview made in 1985 with Yuri Bezmenov in a video game, has aroused the interest of many, since much of what is narrated there is easily identifiable in recent times.

The "Silent Revolution", "Ideological Subversion" or "Active Measures" is a process of brainwashing in the medium and long term that, structured in four basic phases,

aims to weaken the Western system of freedoms,

values ​​and democracy in general and,

particularly, that of the United States.

The former KGB deserter, Yuri Bezmenov, explained in an interview that took place in 1985, the procedure proposed since Marxism-Leninism to destabilize a nation through indoctrination and demoralization of the people.

Some of these statements were included in the video game "Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War" that was released worldwide on November 13, 2020.

The video game is centered around a pursuit of the alleged Soviet spy Perseus, whose stated goal is to subvert the United States and tilt the balance of power toward the Soviet Union.

CBR.com reported:

that the teaser trailer had been banned in China due to a one-second depiction of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests.

PC Gamer's Andy Chalk wrote:

"There's also no mistaking the irony of active censorship in a promo trailer for a game whose tagline is, literally, "Know your history".

The Soviet defector made known the operation of Marxist ideological subversion to fulfill the objective of undermining rival governments and societies, which was carried out through tactical ideological indoctrination

directed at university students, artists and cultural referents

whom he cataloged. as "useful idiots".

And it is that in Bezmenov's opinion, agencies like the KGB have activities that go beyond intelligence as their task, since

only 15 percent of the budget, time and manpower of these organizations is dedicated to espionage as such.

The remaining 85 percent has to do with "Ideological subversion" or "Active measures" which is nothing other than "Psychological warfare" designed to

"change the perception of reality of all Americans to such an extent that despite the abundance of information, nobody is able to reach sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community and their country ”.

Bezmenov listed four phases:



Crisis; and


which by looking at the development of recent events, it is possible to see how they have been fulfilled.


The first of these phases, demoralization, which takes between 15 and 20 years, aims to demoralize a nation. He explains that this time is due to the fact that it is

the minimum number of years required to educate a generation of students in the enemy's country, exposing them to the ideology to be implanted, namely Marxism-Leninism.

This has been the case with several generations of American students, without being challenged or countered by the basic values ​​of the West.

The result was now being able to see how people who were failed students or mediocre intellectuals now occupy positions of power.

These are people who are practically impossible to change their minds, even by exposing them to authentic information and showing them the evidence.

In other words, the demoralization process is complete and irreversible.

Combating this situation would require another 15 or 20 years, in order to be able to educate a new generation of people with common sense and patriotic mentality who act in favor and in the interest of the society of the United States and of the West in general.

Yuri Bezmenov warned that only when these people come face to face with a reality opposite to the ideals that have been instilled in them,

will they fall into psychological shock

when realizing that the beautiful society of equality and social justice that they promoted does not exist.

Only, by then, when they decide to defect, they will be intolerable to Marxism-Leninism.

The problem will be that, unlike the United States, there will no longer be a place for dissidents in the future communist America.

There will be no place to go.


Meanwhile, the second phase, destabilization, a period dedicated to attacking the economy, the political system and the culture of the target population, without the demoralized population now being able to defend itself.

The destabilization takes between 2 and 5 years, a time in which

the demoralized population will believe the criticisms

- whatever the caliber - of their own society,

whose defenders are seen as their enemies.

In turn, the declared enemies of the United States and the West become its natural allies.

The demoralized society stops believing in their nation, in its history and ideals, that is, they lose faith in each other.

The crisis

The next phase is the crisis, which was only about 6 weeks in Bezmenov's estimates (estimated back in 1985) at the time, but which, today, given technological advances, such as the internet, could take less time.

In crisis,

demoralized and destabilized society abandons its legal protections and constitutional ideals.

Values ​​are completely upset.

The system is delegitimized.


The crisis terrorizes part of society, especially the middle class,

which will end up accepting the political agenda hostile to their interests,

then the fourth phase, normalization, takes place.

Its duration can be indefinite.

"Normalization is a cynical expression of Soviet propaganda," Yuri Bezmenov warned, referring to when Soviet tanks moved into Czechoslovakia in 1968 and the governor said: "Now the situation in sister Czechoslovakia is normalized."

At this time,

society is offered and promised all kinds of goods and paradise on earth to destabilize the economy,

to eliminate the principle of free market competition and to put in place a great Big Brother-type government.

After this, it will matter little whether or not promises are kept.

Likewise, in this phase, most politicians, the media and the educational system will be in charge of training the new generation of society, so that they believe that they live in a time of peace, which, obviously, is totally fake.
