Format: Hardcover
Courageous Author Sutton here lays bare one of the essential truths of American history: FDR was brought to power by corporate fascists. And these same Wall Street social engineers also brought the world the Bolshevik Revolution and the rise of Hitler, as Sutton proves in the companion volumes to this essential work.

Between the covers of this very important work, Sutton reveals many fascinating details. Among the most interesting are these:

In the early 1930's, General Smedley Butler revealed a fascist plan to take over the government of the United States. The plan was derailed, mainly through the courage of the highly decorated war hero General.

FDR was greatly under the control of Wall Street power players, such as Bernard Baruch. In this volume, Sutton records one of Baruch's most revealing phrases, the "elation and fervor of war". Notice how similar is Baruch's affection for the horror of war to that our current neoconservative mad men.

The book is excellent. It is much better written than "Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution". And the information contained herein is of the utmost importance to he who would understand this most pivotal of US Chief Executives.

I enjoyed this book immensely, it has many insights into the whys and wherefores of the Depression years, most of which is in dispute I'm sure. But I'm sure we never know what is truly happening in our own times, much less in other times. This is reputedly from a letter to Colonel House:

"The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know,that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson - and I am not wholly excepting the Administration of W.W.(Woodrow Wilson). The country is going through a repetition of Jackson's fight with the Bank of the United States - only on a far bigger and broader basis." -- President Franklin D. Roosevelt, 11/21/33

Format: Hardcover
The true nature of socialism is lost on the vast majority. It is also true that many do not like to be told that the political systems under which they live are classic examples of socialism, and have been for a very long time, only really changing in degrees of subtlety. Most do not like to be told that most if not all of their politicians are members of, or paid front men of, those parasites generally referred to as "the elite"; the mega-wealthy bankers & industrialists who have used the political arena to increase their wealth, power and influence over the past century and more to the point they now control the whole political process, and indeed in many ways the direction of society itself.

Unfortunately, as British-born research fellow Antony Sutton skillfully documents in this second book of three, there is too much evidence in government archives to discount as "conspiracy theory" the notion that bankers and their puppets have dominated politics for at least the last century; there is additionally enough evidence in these and other sources to suggest that this state of affairs, rather than being an exclusively modern phenomenon, has always existed. The evidence also illuminates the point that there is no paradox in supposedly capitalist financiers supporting socialist regimes, for, as Gary Allen so succinctly pointed out, "it [socialism] becomes the logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. ...Socialism is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite.

This is the second of a trilogy by Sutton. The first is Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution and the last is Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler. Buy all three. This one gives some details about FDR and his stint on Wall Street, family history and his presidency I haven't seen anywhere else. Great explanation and history of Corporate Socialists and monopolies.

“Old John D. Rockefeller and his 19th century fellow-capitalists were convinced of one absolute truth: that no great monetary wealth could be accumulated under the impartial rules of a competitive laissez faire society. The only sure road to the acquisition of massive wealth was monopoly: drive out your competitors, reduce competition, eliminate laissez-faire, and above all get state protection for your industry through compliant politicians and government regulation. This last avenue yields a legal monopoly, and a legal monopoly always leads to wealth.

This robber baron schema is also, under different labels, the socialist plan. The difference between a corporate state monopoly and a socialist state monopoly is essentially only the identity of the group controlling the power structure. The essence of socialism is monopoly control by the state using hired planners and academic sponges. On the other hand, Rockefeller, Morgan, and their corporate friends aimed to acquire and control their monopoly and to maximize its profits through influence in the state political apparatus; this, while it still needs hired planners and academic sponges, is a discreet and far more subtle process than outright state ownership under socialism.
