The covert operations, in which KGB officers recruited and ran agents, were aimed at influencing “Innocents,” which is the term Soviet covert operatives used to describe Westerners who could be manipulated into doing the Communists’ bidding.

The preface of a children’s history of the United States, written in 2006, by Howard Zinn, reflects the PC view of the U.S. as irredeemably racist, imperialist, and in need of correction and exposure to its young citizens as a fraud:
I am not worried about disillusioning young people by pointing to the flaws in the traditional heroes. We should be able to tell the truth about people whom we have been taught to look upon as heroes, but who really don’t deserve that admiration. Why should we think it is heroic to do as Columbus did…? Why should we think it heroic for Andrew Jackson to drive Indians out of their land? Why should we think of Theodore Roosevelt as a hero because he fought in the Spanish-American war…paving the way for the United States to take control of Cuba? … My point of view, which is critical of war, racism, and economic injustice, carries over to the situation we face in the United States today.
Contempt for dead white males drips from each page of this two volume history of America. . . .
