Man's instinct of self‑preservation is very strong. Therefore, fear is an extremely important factor in his mentality. The figure of the communist aggressor, as imagined by the vast masses of the Free World, continues to exert all its power of intimidation, whether it be a bearded, dirty, shabby revolutionary thirsty for blood and vengeance or a cold‑blooded, heartless soldier ready to set off an atomic missile. Innumerable people are thus consciously or unconsciously influenced by a desire to surrender nearly everything to avoid civil war or thermonuclear catastrophe.
