In 1964, Paul Harvey wrote “If I Were the Devil.”

Before Paul
Harvey wrote “If I Were the Devil,” the Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci
(1891–1937) explained the steps necessary for radicals to transform a
nation without firing a shot:

They must enter into every civil,
cultural and political activity in every nation, patiently leavening
them all as thoroughly as yeast leavens bread. . . .
This would require a ‘long march through the institutions’ — the
arts, cinema, theater, schools, colleges, seminaries, newspapers,
magazines, and the new electronic medium of the time, radio.”
