Communist Strategy: Centralize Power in Name of Public Welfare

Ezra Taft Benson

Called Unto Liberty, 20th Century Sermons, Ezra Taft Benson

The socialistic-communist conspiracy to weaken the United States involves attacks on many fronts. To weaken the American free-enterprise economy which outproduced both its enemies and allies during World War II is a high-priority target of the communist leaders. Their press and other propaganda media are therefore constantly selling the principles of centralized control of farms, railroads, electric power, schools, steel, maritime shipping, and many other aspects of the economy—but always in the name of public welfare.
