M. The Fear‑Sympathy Syndrome Prepares the Worldly Bourgeois for Unperceived Ideological Transshipment
It would be impossible for communism, to which it is capitally important to undermine the bourgeois society, to make dedicated disciples of Marx from most of the worldly bourgeois. The theses and arguments of this prophet of darkness are arid, confused, and uncouth, and the worldly bourgeois does not enjoy lingering over or delving deeply into anything. Furthermore, the Marxist ideology clashes head on with all his mental habits and personal interests, and he likes neither clashes nor sacrifices.
But the world communist leaders are far from being ignorant of the emotional state in which so many worldly bourgeois find themselves.
This condition is highly exploitable by communism through the fear‑sympathy syndrome. With this, the worldly bourgeois is prepared for the ideological transshipment which, by repeating the word "dialogue" in a thousand different ways, will lead him to become communist without his perceiving it, or at least to take concessionist positions in the face of communism, thereby opening the doors of the citadel to the adversary.
