In the 1920s, the Rockefellers – capitalism’s icons – built the Soviets an oil refinery and sold bonds for them through their Chase Bank. Finder writes: The Chase National Bank was the Soviet government’s leading lender almost from the time of the Revolution. During the twenties, it financed Soviet imports of American cotton. When Amtorg [the Soviet trade mission in the U.S.] was established in 1924, Chase agreed to handle its promissory notes and letters of credit to aid the import from Russia of fur, timber, and precious metals. In 1926 Chase advanced the Soviet government revolving credit of thirty million dollars.
Nicholas Murray Butler encapsulated it in 1937: “Communism is the instrument with which the financial world can topple national governments and then erect a world government with a world police and a world money.”
==Truth Is a Lonely Warrior: Unmasking the Forces behind Global Destruction (James Perloff)
Most everything you have been taught and read about the anti-communist capitalist class is a lie. The search for the instruments of destruction, control and rebirth of a compliant global system does not die with the discrediting of any one government or the “ism” it claimed as its own system to impose its brand of tyranny. Capital knows no loyalty, no national boundaries, and actually loathes free markets and individual freedoms.
The freedom that capital seeks is the free-flow of financial and human/labor capital, capital flowing without any national restraints and to that end the boundaries of all nation states must be forced to melt away. American capitalists supported Communist Russia, Capitalists supported and nurtured Hitler, Mussolini and every major fascist dictatorship on this earth, when it was to their interest to do so. And when the wind changed, the American government was there to make the appropriate regime changes where it could. Nothing is as it seems.
Excellent read, actually an important read….
One hundred seventy years ago, Europe was a continent in ferment. Dissatisfied with the feudal/monarchical system that had sustained most of the continent since the collapse of the Roman Empire, many European intellectuals and agitators wanted to completely overturn the old order. The French Revolution had spawned many imitators, and a number of movements, known collectively as “socialists,” worked to sow unrest and urge their fellow Europeans toward revolution. The most extreme of these was the “scientific socialism” of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, and a circle of leftist intellectuals and malcontents who called themselves the League of the Just. In seeking to differentiate themselves from the many brands of “Utopian socialism” then in vogue, Marx and his collaborators eventually hit on a new name for their program: communism. Before long, the term was on the lips of every informed European, and young Karl Marx soon produced a statement of the communist ideology, the Communist Manifesto.
The Communist Manifesto, a brief and very accessible piece of political pamphleteering, was once required reading in high-school civics classes across the land — in a day when many of its claims still had the power to shock. But nowadays, the Manifesto is seldom read except by political science majors. The reason for this is not hard to discern: The Communist Manifesto, indisputably one of the most influential pieces of writing ever produced, no longer offends or surprises, because nearly all of its philosophical underpinnings have been accepted, and nearly all of its program adopted, in whole or in part, in the formerly free nations of the West, including the United States.
