Mit ‘greed’ getaggte Beiträge

Smedley_Butler was a highly decorated US Marine Corps General whom US Capitalists tried to misuse for the attempted „Business_Plot“ which Butler revealed to the public:

This might have added to his will to confess what he had been used for throughout his military career and give a sound warning to mankind in his speeches which were transformed into the famous book „War_Is_a_Racket“ in 1934.

It´s important to read these great and enlightening lines, but for people with eye problems Butler´s words are performed by Graham Frye:

And here are the written words of Butler: https://archive.org/stream/WarIsARacket/WarIsARacket_djvu.txt

Unfortunately the writing in this link isn´t so well readable, therefore I transfered the text into this PDF file, since the text is obviously too long for WordPress, which is just crippling the text. But at present WordPress is always misplacing the pdf file. I hope it will work properly soon!

We should take the words of this man very serious! And especially US-Americans should! Not only on this day!

Remark:

It might not be absurd to speculate that this book representing Butler´s mutation from a „Man of War“ to a „Man of Peace“ might have inspired Charlie_Chaplin for his great speech as the Barber and double of Fascist Dictator Hynkel in his film „The_Great_Dictator“:

Anyway, the clearness of Butlers words should make it clear to us that wars are a CONSPIRACY in favor of the rich and powerful, the Power Elite!

Expatriate

For many, many generations

Luckily embraced by Granny´s spirit again

Pondering over his cradle´s

Past and future

 

Africa

Cradle of mankind

Cradle of culture

Cradle of writing

Long accompanied by

Evils like Malaria and sleeping disease

Protecting it well

Against the fate of the Americas

And Australia

Against the crowds of generations long expatriates

Bleached by sterility and cold of northern hemisphere

Coming back with greed and guns

Is told by such `nice´ people

Like Monsanto´s friend Bill Gates

That Malaria and allies

Are it´s worst enemies!

A faint air of mistrust is whirling around his head

Do they really want to protect Africa´s people

Or

Do they want to protect themselves

In the attempt of finally gaining control

Over the old continent?

Such is asking himself

An old `paranoid´ expatriate
