The New York Times 10 July 1970 article Communist ‘Rules’ For Revolt Viewed As Durable Fraud inaccurately states:
The earliest publication of the “rules” turned up in search was in The New World News of February, 1946. Many who reproduce the “rules” quote the defunct biweekly newsletter of Moral Re‐Armament Inc. as their source.
Morris Kominsky, in a book called “The Hoaxers,” to be published soon by Branden Press of Boston, quotes H. Mead Twitchell Jr., until recently an employee of the now closed Los Angeles office of Moral Re‐Armament, as saying that the “rules” appeared in German “in a German paper during the twenties and thirties, was translated into English in Britain [and] I believe it was first used in the United States in Rising Tide, a magazine published about 1937, but I can not find a copy to check this and do not know the name of the German newspaper.”
The only magazine called Rising Tide that circulated in the United States, according to a check by librarians, was a periodical for boys and girls of the Presbyterian Church of England, published from 1880 to 1937.
Was H. Mead Twitchell Jr. accurate in stating that the 1937 "Rising Tide" magazine included the "Rules for Revolution" which were published in the February 1946 New World News?
