Staple-bound self-wraps, 17.9 by 21.7,  pp. inlcd. covers, illus. Light wear to the edges and corners and light, uneven yellowing to the covers. Written by “MS/TW,” this xeroxed manifesto puts forth the idea that, to avoid Word War III and nuclear annihilation, the United States “submits completely” to the will of the Soviet Union. “voluntary surrender” and the establishment of “the People’s Democratic Republic of America” will result in world peace and prosperity for both countries. “Make no mistake, we are not Communists! The results of surrender will be quite different than is supposed by both Russian Marxists and American super-patriots. Within a generation the Soviet Union will be completely altered by its contact with our culture. Decadent fashions, music, and ideas will creep in along with high technology. With no one to fight the famous Russian paranoia will diminish. Though our standard of living may drop somewhat at first, world peace can only result in economic boom as less money is wasted on armaments and more money invested in development. True international unity will grow in the centuries to come. Centuries our species may never see unless we act now!” Illustrated with altered images – many of which depict Reagan taking part and getting rich off the surrender. Certainly more of a witty, ironic look at military spending that a serious platform, but you be the judge.
