Of in an editorial the editor a the overseas weekly says a the Issue is not whether or not the John Birch society is dangerous controversial or even ridiculous that is a decision for the proper authorities a the Congress the attorney general and the Public to make. Quot the Issue is whether or not the philosophy of any political group should be disseminated by a military the principle set for h by this newspaper is embodied in this sentence a we done to pretend to know How to operate militarily and we have never thought we had a right to dictate the thought of others no As Man has a right to do harm to another human this is utter nonsense. This country is engaged in War with the soviet Universal state. This country is doctrinally opposed to communism. Every communist is an enemy of the United states. It l a the function of every official of the United states to dig out those who advocate communism and to drive them out of the armed forces. The Assumption therefore thai a Man a.
