Wall Street Bankrolled the Bolshevik Revolution, Killing Millions for Profits and Market Share

The United States had invested billions of dollars building up the military industrial complex to challenge the Soviet threat. Then, as if by divine providence, the Soviet Union collapsed in a puff of smoke. An economist from Stanford University’s Hoover Institute, Anthony Sutton, who authored Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, The Bolshevik Revolution and FDR, Wall Street, and the Rise of Hitler, observed that the Communist threat had been manufactured and hyped by Wall Street from the beginning.

Corporations have been playing one country off another to drive lucrative government contracts to themselves, enhance profit margins, and establish monopolies. They used the opportunity of war, he writes, to seize natural resources, install puppet governments, rescind civil liberties, loot the public purse, and secure opportunities around the world funded by taxpayers.

Sutton observed that Yale’s secret society, Skull & Bones, promoted the communist movement in China, gave aid to Soviet communist revolutionaries – and then played the Chinese and Soviet threats against each other and against the United States in order to drum up profits for Wall Street.

In National Suicide: Military Aid to the Soviet Union, Sutton argues that the Cold War was “not fought to restrain Communism” since the United States was financing the Soviet Union and either directly or indirectly arming both sides in Korea and Vietnam in order to generate multi-billion contracts for corporations.

Through the World Wars, the Cold War, and War on Terrorism, corporate America has demonstrably pitted countries and ideologies against each other to generate profits for shadow financial elites working through it while weakening the United States and other countries and their citizens through debt, cultural subversion, and an erosion of civil liberties, all for the purpose of consolidating the world’s wealth and power into the hands of the few.
