Deep down I believe communism can be achieved but the world and humans are never that simple to allow communism to be established. I have been thinking about how communism can rise from the shadows of Stalin's violent(and somewhat successful) soviet style communism. I believe that once the USA and his friends discover that one is trying to establish a socialist state, they will jump on it immediately and initiate a civil war by supporting other groups. I have heard that humans are malleable but how would one go about uniting his people and shield them from US propaganda that might hinder socialist progress without getting back-stabbed and killed in a costly and somewhat unnecessary civil war. So basically how do you go about organizing a silent socialist revolution which would have gained support from almost everyone in the country by the time its discovered. By then it would be too late for capitalist countries to stir a civil war.

You first build a revolutionary party well established in the working-class with a far reaching organizational ability. Silent Revolutions don't exist, Reality is not Fight Club.

Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia and Nicaragua are all examples of ways in which to build socialism and to bring socialist leaders to power

As Red Armenian said, you first build a revolutionary party with deep roots in working-class communities.

As for organizing a "silent" revolutionary movement...you don't and cannot do that.

A revolutionary party will be hounded by the ruling class from the beginning, as was the Bolshevik Party upon its formation in Russia.

I suggest getting out there and forming your own links with, say, the P.S.L.(Party For Socialism and Liberation) or if your a student, the S.D.S.(Students For A Democratic Society), for example. Organize your school/workplace/community and thus gain practical experience as your revolutionary views mature along with your organizing abilities.

Debating and discussing radical views on an online forum is a step in the right direction, but I think that actually becoming an activist is the next big step in becoming a true revolutionary. Good luck, comrade.
