Give “Planning is Socialism’s Trademark” (below) to your elected and appointed officials who are pushing regionalism, not understanding its history: roots (source).
The following unedited/authentic text “Planning is Socialism’s Trademark” is copied verbatim from a one-pager “WARNING” distributed by the National Citizens Alliance, Box 489, Brunswick, Maine 04011 in response to the signing by U.S. President Ronald Reagan and USSR President Gorbachev of the Education Exchange Agreements between the USA and the USSR and the Carnegie Corporation’s agreement with the Soviet Academy of Science to develop computer courseware for education (1985). The latter agreement included development of Marxist critical thinking courseware for early elementary school children!
IS SOCIALISM’S TRADEMARK”:
PROOF THAT REGIONALISM/UN AGENDA 21 IS COMMUNISM
The following verbatim text of “Planning is Socialism’s Trademark”, by Maurice (Morris) Zeitlin, sociologist, University of California, L.A., has been retyped by Charlotte Iserbyt. Page 1 of the article has been in my possession since 1976. Only recently did I find page 2 which had been lost in my files. This important find has enabled me to make the complete article available to the public. Professor Zeitlin’s bio is available here.

PLANNING IS SOCIALISM’S TRADEMARK
By Maurice (Morris) Zeitlin, in The Communist Daily World, 11/8/75 (former Communist Daily Worker, founded in 1924. (Note ref. to Tchaikovsky Street in Moscow under blurred photo).
Cities in industrially-advanced countries develop complex economic, social and political interaction. In this process, major cities tend to consolidate neighboring smaller cities and settlements into metropolitan regions. Rationally, metropolitan regions should constitute governmental units having comprehensive planning and administrative powers within their boundaries.
In our country, rival capitalist groups, jealously guarding their special prerogatives, have rigidly maintained the traditional boundaries of states and counties while national economic and social development has created metropolitan regions that overlap those boundaries. We have no regional government and no comprehensive regional planning to speak of. Regional government and planning remain concepts our urban scholars and planners have long advocated in vain. We have only special, narrowly limited regional authorities such as the New York Port Authority empowered to promote the New York-New Jersey harbor or the Tennessee Valley Authority set up to control floods and generate electricity in the Tennessee Valley. Voluntary research agencies, such as the New York Regional Association, as certain regional interaction in some metropolitan regions and reveal to subscribing businessmen and local governments some regional data pertinent to their business activities.
In socialist countries, metropolitan regions enjoy metropolitan regional government and comprehensive regional planning.
Of the many regions on the vast territory of the Soviet Union, the Moscow Region commands special attention, for it has been, since the 1917 Revolution, the country’s economic and political center. The multifarious functions of the capital city, the conglomeration of industries and scientific, technical and educational institutes, a population of 13 million and its skilled labor force made the Moscow Region one of the largest, most advanced and dynamic in the country. During the war and postwar years, Soviet planners had made full use of these attributes and considerably expanded the region’s industrial base for the war and reconstruction efforts.
But the Moscow Region approaches the limits of useful expansion, for it lacks adequate raw materials and energy resources for much further industrial growth. The long-range National Economic Plan has therefore shifted industrial expansion away from the Moscow Region to the vastly richer sites of raw material and energy resources in Siberia, the Far East, Kazakhstan and Middle Asia. It assigned the Moscow Region, and other similar regions the task of increasing their productivity chiefly through technological updating and refinement of existing production facilities.
Accordingly, the National Economic Plan allocates development priorities in the Moscow Region to basic industries using high ratios of skilled labor and to service industries. Industries that do not fit the region’s new economic profile, especially high energy and water consumers, importers of heavy and bulky raw materials and users of obsolete buildings will either cease growing or move out of the region.
The reduced industrial development will level off growth in regional jobs, hence in labor force and population. During the early Five- Year Plans and postwar reconstruction, the population of Moscow and its region grew faster than the country’s average. But this changed after 1959 when large industrial centers began developing in the country’s peripheral regions.
The population distribution within the Moscow Region has been extremely uneven in the past. Millions of Soviet citizens had followed the gravitation of industries to Moscow in the early period of the country’s economic development and during and after the war, causing an excessive population density within the city. Peripheral areas of the region, on the other hand, lacked jobs and adequate social-cultural facilities. The Moscow Regional Plan set out to correct this imbalance. To start a process of population redistribution within the region it created two regional planning zones: the 5,400 square-mile inner zone comprising Moscow City and the 13,000 square-mile outer zone.
The inner zone includes suburbs and settlements bound so closely to the mother city by daily industrial, economic, social and cultural ties as to constitute a single urban complex. This area contains industries directly related to the city, the green-belt, the suburban agricultural economy, recreation establishments, the Moscow transportation network facilities, the municipal engineering services, and an open space reserve of 24,700 acres. It is rational, therefore, that it constitute a single overall planning unit. Within this zone, the Regional Plan severely limits further industrial expansion and anticipates a population growth of only 10% compared with a 100% growth in the outer zone.
The integrity of Moscow’s protective greenbelt is one of the Regional Plan’s major concerns. Moscow’s radial avenues and highways which allow the Region’s population an easy access to the center of the city, also make it easy to get to the greenbelt’s recreation facilities. This asset has had its negative side. As Moscow grew, neighboring settlements tended to fuse with the city – along radial highways and railroads at first, and later in the spaces between them. Unchecked, this trend could lead to an endless expansion of the built-up urban area and a gradual loss of green spaces in and around the city. To prevent this, the Moscow City and Regional Plans put clear, rigorously enforceable restrictions against prohibited land uses within [print unreadable; “that area”? editor]
We noted earlier that the existing distribution of settlements and work places within the Moscow Region are poorly related. About 500,000 people travel from the outer bounds of the region to work in Moscow, and over a million commute to work between different communities in the region. The uneven distribution of work places within the region is only partly responsible for this commutation pattern. It is mainly due to the propensity of workers to choose, out of the region’s varied job pool, the jobs that suit their aptitudes or inclinations, regardless of location.
The Regional Plan had also worked out a strategy of attack on the relative underdevelopment in the outer zone by encouraging the fusion of small settlements into more productive urban units. The region embraces 69 cities and towns, 75 villages and a multitude of isolated homesteads. Though settlements with populations of 30,000 or more increased from 13 in 1939 to 35 in 1966, large populations still live in settlements too small to be served with adequate community facilities. To raise their living standards, the Regional Plan sets up a system of urban centers in the outer zone endowed with magnetic capabilities, as it were, to attract and absorb surrounding small settlements. In this strategy, growing cities with populations of 100,000 or more will play the key role. The variety of jobs such cities generate will provide full employment as well as various municipal, cultural and every-day services to smaller settlements within about 25 miles of their centers.
Further, cities next in size will play a supporting role in the development of yet smaller cities within their range of economic and social influence. Within these spheres of influences, cities having populations between 20,000 and 100,000, strategically located among smaller rural settlements, will serve as the secondary urbanizing nuclei in the overall strategy of settlement upgrading. They will be developed as service centers to the rural populations.
Villages of up to 5,000 people, comprising several farm activities and rural industries, are assigned the role of tertiary “magnets” in this consolidation process. The Regional Plan thus hopes to reduce the number of rural villages in the region, by 1985, from 7,500 to about 1,800 and, ultimately, to 600 or 700 modern urban-type rural communities. Underlying this strategy is the basic goal of socialist society to do away with the difference between city and village. This goal, Soviet planners are convinced, can be reached only by raising the material and cultural standards of rural populations to those enjoyed in the cities.
The Regional Plan assigns the delivery of services to the region’s population in accord with its planning structure. In the inner zone, it encourages Moscow’s suburbanites to make greater use of the capital’s extensive services. In the outer zone, it allocates facilities and services to communities commensurate with their size and their assigned role as “attractors” or “attractees” within the settlement system. In addition, it distributes within the outer zone of the region a series of new service institutions initiated by the capital’s service system, special medical establishment, sanatoria, and a variety of recreational, sport and resort facilities.
The economic and functional efficiencies and the social benefits that comprehensive national, regional and city planning make possible in socialist society explain the Soviet Union’s enormous and rapid economic and social progress. Conversely, our profit-oriented ruling capitalist class makes comprehensive social and economic planning impossible, causing waste and chaos and dragging the entire nation into misery and suffering as its rule deteriorates and declines.

OPERATION HELP DR. DENNIS CUDDY
Many of you are familiar with Dr. Dennis Cuddy’s impeccable research/writing related to the history of education and global politics. We all owe Dennis more than we have ever paid for his remarkable books. I don’t know what I would have done without Dennis’s valuable research and assistance through the years. For example: Important quote in this article regarding Stalin’s plan to use regional government to install world communism came from Dennis!
Dennis’s work has truly been a labor of love for the United States of America and all our nation stands for.
As you may or may not know, his mother, Peggy, also a fine researcher, writer, and friend of many, has been very ill for at least ten years. Dennis, a loving and loyal son, has cared for her 24 hours a day. Quite a schedule considering his dedication to writing and getting the history out across the world, history to enable one to not only “understand” but to “take a stand”.
A severe financial crisis has occurred which will require not only that Dennis and Peggy must move from their long-time residence, but also that they pay on a continuing basis some very stiff and unanticipated housing and medical bills. They do not have the resources to deal with this crisis.
Now is the time when I am reaching out to all of you to thank Dennis for all his work by purchasing the Exposing the Global Road to Ruin through Education at “cost”, the proceeds of which I will send to Dennis.
I am willing to sell the above 8-disc set for half price ($20) plus $10 shipping and handling. Total of $30. When I receive your check for $30 I will send Dennis his share ($20) and will use the balance of $10 for shipping and handling of your order.
(The 8-disc set ordinarily sells for $39.95 + S&H at Amazon, so you can see the $20 price is a steal! The cost to me to produce the disc set was $25 each, so you will be getting it for less than the original cost price!)
Go to Amazon.com for info on disc set, cost, reviews, etc. Disc set has consistently received Five-Star ratings at Amazon.
This offer is a “win/win” offer. By buying the disc set you can inform your friends and acquaintances regarding the history behind the pending demise of the USA as a Constitutional Republic, mostly planned and carried out through the left and right-wing tax-exempt foundations, especially Carnegie Corporation, and the federal Dept. of Education. You will, at the same time, be giving them an Action Plan (Disc #7) for taking back our public education system and returning it to its pre-1965 level of academic excellence. Your friends should arrange meetings in their homes, at churches, etc. to show these very educational videos!
At the same time, and of even greater importance perhaps, you will be helping a great American and his mother, Dennis and Peggy Cuddy, who have dedicated their lives for over 40 years to preserving the America we all know and love. They are, both of them, truly in need of your assistance at this time.
Please write your check in the amount of $30 to 3D Research Company and send to same at 519 River Road, Dresden, ME 04342.
Dennis knows I am asking for assistance through this very special offer. He and his mother, Peggy, want to thank you for whatever help you can provide through your purchase of the disc set/sets. (If you want to order multiple sets, please do so, and don’t worry about shipping. I’ll pay for shipping on multiple orders.)
Here is Amazon description of the disc set:
This eight-disc set (7 dvds/1 cd) includes app. 20 hours of videotaped presentations and over 200 pages of written submissions. Videos and written presentations include Charlotte Iserbyt, Samuel Blumenfeld, Cynthia Weatherly, Dennis Cuddy, Edward Griffin, Rosa Koire, Polly Anglin, Jane Aitken, Anita Hoge, Jeannie Georges, Cherilyn Eagar, Mary Thompson, Bettina Dobbs, Kelleigh Nelson, et al.
The presentations are the result of two 2-day conferences, held in Maine and Georgia, August 2012 and August 2013 organized by myself and Steve Schran, a public school teacher with 30 years experience teaching music. Fifteen of the nation's most respected education and political researchers, writers, and speakers, including public school teachers - some in the trenches since 1965 - were videotaped. Written submissions are included from the speakers, as well as from those who could not attend the conference. One is offered a banquet of written works, including rich history, from great patriots and recognized writers active from 1960-2000; i.e., including but not limited to Jacqueline and Malcolm Lawrence, Joan Masters, Elizabeth Trotto, Peggy Cuddy, Ginny Baker, Billy Lyon, Jil Wilson, Stephanie Block, Berit Kjos, and Sarah Leslie; and from equally talented individuals no longer with us: the late Maureen Heaton, Don Bell, Jo Hindman, Bettye Lewis, Ruth Feld and Gene Malone. This impeccable research is your tool kit: ammunition to fight and win the government/corporate/tax-exempt foundation-funded war against our children and grandchildren, and against our free constitutional republic, very aptly illustrated by Joel Pett, Pultizer Prize-winning cartoonist in his 1983 Phi Delta Kappan cartoon.
