The Cold War was not won by the West. Instead it was a multi-decade long deception strategy from Russian KGB to deceive the West and to defeat U.S. and their allies and to implement a totalitarian-like world government.
This is the overall thesis from the works of Anatoliy Golitsyn, the most important defector from KGB that escaped to US in 1961. He published two books where he explained in details the strategy and even made some "predictions" for the future of URSS and the Iron Curtain. The first one was called "New Lies For Old" and it was published in 1984. The second "Perestroika Deception" came in 1995.
His predictions were independently evaluated as been accurate by the rate of 99% 8in the nineties). He predicted the Fall of Berlin Wall, the coming of Mikhail Gorbachev into power and his policies "Glasnost" and "Perestroika".
Forget all you have been swallowing as "history". Democracy under the Iron Curtain was staged by KGB to work in the shadows.
Here I present two interviews (in two part each) from the English publisher Christopher Story, publisher of "Perestroika Deception" and other books like "Red Cocaine". William Macilhany interviewed Story in 1995 and 2003 on the subject of this deception strategy.
