One false premise that has been put forth in our day is that all communists and capitalists are bitter adversaries. You would think given what their supposed differences with one another are supposed to be, that’s how it should be. Sorry to burst that fairy tale bubble, but it jus ain’t so. So start to disabuse yourselves of that fallacy right now.
Antony Sutton, in his informative book Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution published way back in 1974, blew this foolishness right out of the water. On page 17, Sutton told us: “Consequently, one barrier to mature understanding of recent history is the notion that all capitalists are the bitter and unswerving enemies of all Marxists and socialists. This erroneous idea originated with Karl Marx and was undoubtedly useful to his purposes. In fact, the idea is nonsense. There has been a continuing, albeit concealed, alliance between international political capitalists and international revolutionary socialists–to their mutual benefit. This alliance has gone unobserved largely because historians–with a few notable exceptions–have an unconscious Marxian bias and are thus locked into the impossibility of any such alliance existing. The open-minded reader should bear two clues in mind: monopoly capitalists are the bitter enemies of laissez-faire entrepreneurs, and, given the weakness of socialist central planning, the totalitarian socialist state is a perfect captive market for monopoly capitalists, if an alliance can be made with the socialist powerbrokers.” Do you begin to see how this might work out for those at the top in both groups?
One way the results of this unholy alliance gets peddled to gullible Americans is via the college campuses in this country, both now and in the past.
Way back in February, 1919, a man named E.H. Doheny noted this, according to Antony Sutton, when he told someone else that: “Bolshevism is the true fruit of socialism and if you will read the interesting testimony before the Senate Committee that showed up all these pacifists and peace-makers as German sympathizers, Socialists and Bolsheviks, you will see that a majority of college professors in the United States are teaching socialism, and Bolshevism and that fifty-two college professors were on so-called peace committees in 1914. The worst Bolshevists in the United States are not only college professors, of whom President Wilson is one, but capitalists and the wives of capitalists and neither seem to know what they are talking about.” Did any of you all pick up what he said about college professors back in 1919? If you did, do you now know why you have problems with college professors in our day? This is not a new problem, folks. It has been a problem since well before any of us was even born! It’s bad enough that many of our capitalists turned out to be Marxist sycophants, but when many of your college professors end up in the same leftist camp–this affects your children and their children if you remain ignorant of what is transpiring.
Anyway, in this vein, I noted in the last article that Leon Trotsky was arrested in Canada. The Canadians reasoned within themselves that if Trotsky took Russia out of World War One, that would turn more Germans loose to kill Canadians on the Western Front. It would have, but there was more involved than that. Art Thompson noted in In the Shadows of the Deep State that “The apartment just above that of Col. House in New York was occupied by the head of the British Secret Service in the United States, Sir William Wiseman, and they knew each other. After the arrest of Trotsky, House informed Sir Wiseman that President Wilson wanted Trotsky released. This was done, and Trotsky and his entourage proceeded to Russia, where they were instrumental in the Bolshevik takeover of Russia.” For those who might not know, Col. Edward Mandell House was “Woodrow Wilson’s alter-ego.” He was what Henry Kissinger was to Richard Nixon and what Dick Cheney was to Bush 2. In other words, he really pulled the presidential strings and the puppet president danced to his tune.
So Trotsky ended up in Russia, with $10,000 in cash, over and above the 20 mil he had been handed to finance the Bolsheviks. No one knows where this dinero came from. Some think it was the German government, but no one really knows. It was known, however, that the German government helped Lenin to get from Switzerland back into Russia.
Interestingly enough, the Bolsheviks did not overthrow the Czar. They overthrew a provisional government that was led by socialists. Art Thompson observed that “…the banker Jacob Schiff of Kuhn-Loeb gave $20,000,000 toward the Bolshevik Revolution. He may have been the individual who helped Trotsky live in America, but there are hints of others as well…There have always been the ‘George Soros’ types of millionaires promoting communism. (Soros, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, today finances many communist and radical groups not only in America but also around the world.)
Does anyone ever begin to wonder why these rich financiers are so hot to fund and support communist and socialist groups that are supposed to be the sworn enemies of the rich and powerful? That’s a question more people need to begin to ask.
Reading books like The Rockefeller File, which you can find on line, will start to give you some of the answers, and they may arm you with more questions you need to start asking. So start reading and learning, because what these people do in our day will affect your descendants.
