"The new method sees 'perestroika', not as a surprising and spontaneous change, but as the logical result of thirty years of preparation and as the next and final phase of the strategy; it sees it in a broader context than Soviet 'openness' has revealed.
It sees it, not only as a renewal of Soviet society, but as a global strategic design for 'restructuring' the entire capitalist world.
The following strategic objectives of 'perestroika' may be distinguished.
For the USSR
(a) 'Restructuring' and revitalization of the Soviet socialist economy through the incorporation of some elements of the market economy.
(b)'Restructuring' of the Stalinist regime into a form of 'Communist democracy' with an appearance of political pluralism [='democratism']
(c)'Restructuring' a repressive regime with a brutal face into an attractive socialist model with a human facade and a seeming similarity to the Swedish social democratic system.
For Eastern Europe
Economic and political 'restructuring' of the existing regimes into pseudo-social democratic models while preserving specific national historical features such as the strong Catholic Socialist tradition in Poland and the pre-war democratic tradition in Czechoslovakia.
For Western Europe
(a) Bringing about a new political alliance between the pseudo-social democratic regimes in the USSR and Eastern Europe and the Euro-Communist parties and genuine social democratic parties in Western Europe.
(b) 'Restructuring" political and military Blocs- NATO and the Warsaw Pact - and the creation of a single 'Europe from the Atlantic to the Urals' incorporating a reunited, neutral Germany.
For the main US alliances
(a) Splitting the United States, Western Europe and Japan.
(b) Dissolution of NATO and the US-Japan security pact, and the withdrawal of US troops from Western Europe and Japan.
For Third World countries
The introduction and promotion of a new Soviet model with mixed economy and a human face in Latin America, Africa and Asia through a joint campaign by the pseudo-social democrat regimes of the USSR and Eastern Europe and the genuine social democrats of Western Europe led by the Socialist International.
For the United States
(a) To neutralize the influence of the anti-Communist political right in the American political parties and to create favorable conditions for a victory of the radical left in the 1992 presidential elections.
(b) To 'restructure' the American military, political, economic and social status quo to accommodate greater convergence between the Soviet and American systems and the eventual creation of a single World Government.
The paramount global objective
The paramount global objective of the strategy of 'perestroika' is to weaken and neutralize anti-Communist ideology and the influence of anti-Communists in political life in the United States, Western Europe and elsewhere - presenting them as anachronistic survivors of the Cold War, reactionaries and obstacles to 'restructuring' and peace. Anyone who warns about Moscow's true objectives is automatically branded a 'Cold Warrior', even by people who have doubts about Moscow's motives."
