If there ever were an example of how one man can make a difference, that man is Dr. Fred Schwarz. An Australian, he came to the United States in the mid-1950s and spent 50 years in our country teaching Americans to understand Communism. His knowledge of the theory, strategy, tactics, objectives, and successes of Communism was profound and total. Dr. Schwarz was a compelling orator who could hold the attention of crowds of many thousands, and also a debater who could never be tripped up on the subject of his expertise. To many, he is best known for his five-day "schools," which he started in 1958, to teach about Communism in depth to willing listeners.
The essence of Dr. Schwarz's message was published in his 1960 book, You Can Trust the Communists ... To Be Communists. When he completed his 50-year mission in the United States and returned to Australia, he bequeathed his organization, the Christian Anti-Communism Crusade, and its publications to a worthy successor, David Noebel of Summit Ministries. David Noebel has just re-published Dr. Schwarz's book under the title You Can Still Trust the Communists...To Be Communists, adding several chapters of his own to update us on the continued Communist assault on capitalism and Christianity and add a useful bibliography. Communism did not die when the Soviet Empire collapsed. It still exists in Cuba, Venezuela, China, and, unfortunately, on the campuses of many U.S. colleges and universities.
This book is an excellent primer for anyone who seeks to know how Communists are recruited and molded to become agents for an un-American ideology. It describes Communist techniques for seizing power and setting up fronts and captive organizations. This book would be an excellent vaccine to give to any young person heading off to college.
