A Disturbing Influence

Bob Santamaria maintained that "penetration" or "permeation" of outside bodies was a legitimate pressure-group tactic for him and his Catholic followers, akin to Fabian socialist influence on the British Labour Party. Opponents saw it as a takeover tactic. A burning question at the time of the Labor Split of the mid-1950s was whether the Movement he led was trying to take over the Australian Labor Party. Santamaria's letters to his intimates provide some evidence towards that conclusion.
