Saturday It Isnt Even True Marxism a long time and the more so since Ive seen it at close range Ive looked upon Russian Communism as more of a perpetuation of czaristic im perialism than a true manifesta tion of the doctrine promulgated by Karl Marx and his collabor ator Friedrich Engels World domination for centuries before Lenin or Stalin arrived the scene was the goal of Rus sian diplomacy It still is wrapping around the package hasi been dolled up a bit but the conj tents are wholly unchanged Now I wouldnt wish to leave the impression that this is an original idea with me It most as suredly is not Many others have looked at the same evil works and come up with the same con clusion One of these of course is Yugo slavias Tito His belief that Mos cow was trying to swallow up all of Russias satellites including Yugoslavia is precisely what caused him to break away a decade ago From a member of the Tito cabinet when I was there a bit more than five years ago heard it stated that Titos regime comes a whole 5ot closer to be ing the pureMcCoy Marxism than anything ever turned out in the Kremlin Missing Natures Gifts Without implying any compli ment I could then and I do now agree that this was and is a cor rect statement While the tyrannj Yugoslavia may not be as bad as in Russia Titoism is a very bad medicine no good for man or beast God was rather kind to Yugo slavia as it was to Russia in the way of natural resources in eluding a fertile soil Under a government which encouraged en terprise and initiative in the in dividual both Yugoslavia anc Russia could be

Communism ar two things quite different from each other is contained in a re port recently turned in by an eminent Yale University political scientist After Ten Years My reference is to Doctor Frederick Barghoorn who spent a summer studying conditions in Russia and comparing them with the Russia he knew ten years ago His report was to an audi ence of escaped scholars from the Soviet Union men and womeni peculiarly qualified to appraise the Yale mans conclusions Dr Barghoorn vigorously dis puted Kremlin contentions that the socialism envisaged by Karl Marx had been either achieved or approached To the contrary he referred to the Soviet system as state monopoly capitalism or even as a revival of feudalism describable as Gengis Khan plus the tele graph The Yale man started out by observing that down through the years since Communism or what passes as Communism fastened itself on Russia Marx and Engels have been vastly overshadowed by Lenin and Stalin Khruschchev in his last
