Greed As An Item To Exploit In The War Against Capitalism – Part 7 Of The Series

word-imageOne glaring weakness which the communists, Islamists, and Nazis took advantage of was the short-sighted greed of much of America’s multinational corporations and banks. In return, the totalitarian states received money, high technology items, capital goods, and an undeserved political legitimacy in Washington DC. The communists and Islamists won a massive victory when the libertarians and big business lobby divorced American capitalism from any sense of loyalty to the national interest. This state of affairs continues to this day and is the unspoken national crisis which plagues this nation.

“Merchants have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains.” Thomas Jefferson

“We repudiate all morality that is taken outside of human, class concepts. We say that this is deception, a fraud, which clogs the brains of th e workers and peasants in the interests of the landlords and capitalists. We say that our morality is entirely subordinated to the interests of the class struggle of the proletariat. Our morality is deduced from the class struggle of the proletariat.” Lenin, quoted in House Committee on Un-American Activities Facts on Communism: The Soviet Union From Lenin to Khrushchev

“As for businessmen, I could persuade a capitalist on Friday to bankroll a revolution on Saturday that will bring him a profit on Sunday even though he will be executed on Monday.” Alinsky, Saul. Rules for Radicals

“The fact is that some capitalists do let themselves be used to build socialism if it is profitable business, and even if it is contrary to some of their class interests. This is one of the contradictions of modern capitalism and imperialism.” Pat Sloan Political Affairs October 1966

“The joint ventures in the USSR, even though insulated from the planned economy, do introduce free market capitalism so far as the external manifestations are concerned…The basic motivation on the capitalist side of the joint venture is maximum profit…It’s important to differentiate between those imperialist corporations which would participate in joint ventures from a narrow economic point of view and those which are more concerned with long-term contracts and expansion and hope to use their economic links in the USSR for political leverage in the broader struggle between socialism and capitalism.” Sam Marcy Workers World August 13, 1987

True, the capitalist class will sell even the rope used to hang them, as Lenin said…It is true that the strategic interests of the imperialist bourgeoisie would dictate a total boycott rather than any trade, but they are constrained by their own avaricious and predatory chase for superprofits. That has compelled the imperialist bourgeoisie to deal with the USSR in trade and the sale of some technology. Sam Marcy Workers World September 1988

“It may be necessary to get loans. A workers’ state has the right to borrow from whomever it can whenever it needs to. And we know that capitalism will do anything in the world, including selling rope to hang themselves, for profit. Maybe that’s what is involved. I would hope so.” Sam Marcy Workers World June 13, 1991

And so it happens that we have acquired propagandists within the bourgeois countries who advocate cooperation with us. Moreover these propagandists are not to be found among journalists and newspapermen nor in the person of the Soviet ambassador, but rather among the worst type of exploiter…” Lenin, 1920

Lenin reputedly had a conversation with another top Bolshevik named Karl Radek, in which the following was allegedly stated:

Lenin:Comrades, don’t panic, when things go very hard for us, we will give a rope to the bourgeoisie, and the bourgeoisie will hang itself.”

Radek: “Vladimir Ilyich, but where are we going to get enough rope to hang the whole bourgeoisie?”

Lenin: “They’ll supply us with it.”

Information quoted from Solzhenitsyn, Aleksandr I. Words of Warning to the Western World

The Soviet archivist Yuri Annenkov alleged that he viewed the handwritten notes of Lenin. One such note suggested the following: “On the basis of observations gathered during my years in exile the ‘cultured’ class of the capitalist countries of Western Europe and America, i.e., the ruling classes, the financial aristocracy, the bourgeoisie and the idealistic democrats, should be regarded as deaf-mutes and treated accordingly. The deaf mute capitalist hoarders, their governments, the Chambers of Commerce, the federations of industry, bank groups, steel kings, rubber kings, aluminum kings, and others will close their eyes to the above-mentioned truth and so become blind. They will grant us credits which will fill the coffers of the communist, organizations in their countries, while they enlarge and improve our armaments industry by supplying all kinds of wares, which we shall need for future attacks against our suppliers…Capitalists the world over and their governments will, in their desire to win Soviet market, shut their eyes to the above-mentioned activities and thus be turned into blind deaf-mutes. They will furnish credits, which will serve as a means of supporting the Communist parties in their countries, and, by supplying us, will rebuild our war industry, which is essential for our future attacks on our suppliers. In other words, they will be laboring to prepare their own suicide.” Lenin quoted by Ashbrook, Congressman John. “Lenin and the Deaf Mutes” Congressional Record March 1, 1967

It is necessary to bribe capitalism with extra profit…and we will get the basics with the aid of which we will strengthen ourselves, will finally get up on our feet and then defeat it.” Lenin, 1920

“It would be difficult to find better proof of the economic and moral victory of the Soviet Russian Republic. All the capitalist countries of the world, which were united in the war against us, against our terror and our system, are forced against their will to enter into trade agreements with us, knowing full well that in this way they are helping us to strengthen and secure our system.” Lenin, 1920

“…Our goal is: in the capitalist encirclement to make use of the greed of the capitalists for profit and the rivalry between the trusts, so as to create conditions for the existence of the socialist republic, which cannot exist without having ties with the rest of the world, and must, in the present circumstances, adjust its existence to capitalist relations.” Lenin, 1921

“…we can play on the ambition of thousands of politicians of all sizes, who have come from the bourgeoisie…men who are unable to reach their goals because their abilities are not in accord with their ambitions.” Chinese Communist Party theorist Li Li Siang quoted in Ravines, Eudocio. The Yenan Way

“People who serve us, through greed, through fear, inferiority, vengeance, what have you, serve the party, serve the designs of the Comintern, serve the cause of the revolution.” Mao Tse-tung quoted in Ravines, Eudocio. The Yenan Way

“That short sighted financiers, penny wise and pound foolish, should contribute to the (communist) conspiracy is only understandable on their quaint hypothesis: L’argent n’ a pas d’odeur (Money has no smell). There is neither ethics nor morality to money making.” Walsh, Edmund. The Last Stand


For some of these men are often bound up in a pragmatic and materialistic philosophy akin to that which forms the basis of communism. A striking illustration of a leading industrialist, who has aided the communist line, though undoubtedly he did this unwittingly, is Ernest T. Weir president of the National Steel Company in Weirton West Virginia. Mr. Weir is known as a bitter opponent of organized labor. At the same time, he has been prominent in advocating recognition of Red China and in urging negotiations of a general character with Soviet Russia going to the extent of issuing pamphlets on a nation-wide scale in support of these pro-Soviet proposals. His arguments are not based on moral grounds, but on strictly practical considerations which do not apply when confronting Soviet Communism.” Budenz, Louis F. The Techniques of Communism

“The Reds, in their plans for penetration, have not overlooked Wall Street and some of the lawyers who advise Big Business. As a Communist official, I had more access to law offices serving large corporations than I have had since leaving the Communist party. This does not indicate that a great number of these gentlemen are pro-Red; it does show that too many of them are either pro-Soviet or have been led by false conceptions of how to make easy profits out of Soviet trade. Undoubtedly, the welfare of the United States did not enter too strongly into their profit calculations…It was a Wall Street lawyer who admitted to me that many in Big Business were convinced that the United States should co-operate in making all Europe Communist, on the grounds that the United States could trade peacefully with such an entity. This man has wide business relations and political friendships, and he spoke for others beside himself in expressing that view. I do not mean to imply that all Wall Street is going pro-Communist; but I do mean to say quite definitely that in my experience many men connected with Wall Street look upon Soviet Russia more as a market than as a menace to American independence.” Budenz, Louis. Men Without Faces

“The background of appeasement in certain Big Business circles-reminiscent of the selling of scrap iron to Japan-is fostered and taken advantage of by the concealed Communists.” Budenz, Louis. Men Without Faces

“Some of these monopoly capitalists too, these Big Business men, will undoubtedly sell out the ‘Four Freedoms’-and he laughed dryly-for Soviet trade just as some others sold out to Hitler.” American Communist J. Peters quoted in Budenz, Louis. This Is My Story

“…the American businessman, alas, suffers also, and most grievously, from the hypertrophy of occupational function. Within his arena so accomplished a performer, he often proves an oaf when he ventures, or is forced, outside. His alertness, vision, quickness, invention are somehow transformed into their opposites. In art, philosophy, and in political or social affairs of any but the crudest sort, he is likely to be drearily prejudice, emptily pompous, narrowly unperceptive, hopelessly backward-looking, naively credulous. At his banquets, his conventions, his clubs, and in his family circle, he tirelessly repeats the most banal of ritualistic abstractions, without relevance, content, or style. It is as if his entire creative spirit were channeled into his special field, and for all else there remained only a paltry set of conditioned verbal reflexes. Ah, how infinitely wearisome a thing it is to listen to the after-dinner speech of “a leading businessman!” Burnham, James The Coming Defeat of Communism

In relation to the struggle against communism, the American businessman is too ignorant, too greedy, too reactionary and, in a certain sense, too cowardly. I am not, of course, qualifying individual businessmen by these adjectives; I am referring rather to social or “class” characteristics of the businessman as a type. As individuals, businessmen are no more frequently ignorant or cowardly than individuals from any other social group…American businessmen seek, and often obtain, really enormous personal incomes for themselves, and colossal profits for the corporations which they own or manage.” Burnham, James The Coming Defeat of Communism

…to trade on a big and unrestricted scale is to prepare for suicide-or rather to build the guillotine for one’s own executioner…Businessmen are ignorant, abysmally ignorant about what communism is, what communists are. Of course, businessmen are, almost all of them, in their own minds the staunchest of ‘anti-communists.’ But because they do not understand communism (and because they are greedy and short sighted) they act frequently in ways that help communism. They really cannot believe that the communists mean what they say-just as they could not bring themselves to believe Hitler. They do not believe that the communists are serious when they declare that they are going to conquer the world…The businessmen, for all their rhetoric, can think of the communists only as rivals or competitors of the same fundamental type as themselves.” Burnham, James The Coming Defeat of Communism

…Very many businessmen do not know the difference between a communist and an anarchist, democratic socialist, or mere eccentric dissident. They pick up a pompous phrase like ‘socialism is the halfway house to communism’ and imagine that by repeating it they are being profoundly philosophical.” Burnham, James The Coming Defeat of Communism

“In the struggle against internal communism, these negative qualities of the American businessmen are discouragingly apparent. Some of the businessmen, plain and simple reactionaries, are absolutely anti-union. They would like literally to smash the trade unions. Since their likes become known, they too help to alienate the proletariat and to heap up grist for the communist propaganda mill…Others, from ignorance or greed or both, act toward to unions in such a way as to aid communist led unions against anti-communist unions.”Burnham, James The Coming Defeat of Communism

“The communists have studied the American businessman with meticulous care. They have learned how to seduce him, while he remains unaware, through his greed and ignorance and lack of vision; and they have learned how easily, because of his political and moral timidity he can be intellectually terrorized. During 1949, they opened a beautifully planned new front in their campaign for the demoralization of the American business community.” Burnham, James The Coming Defeat of Communism

“The businessmen are shrewd in their own eyes and fancy themselves shrewd bargainers. They believe that a deal can always be made and they want a deal. What Stalin is doing is to encourage them to keep that belief and that hope. Communists, however, do not make deals; they make traps: an oath to an infidel does not bind.” Burnham, James The Coming Defeat of Communism

“Some business leaders have had the temerity to suggest that trade with the Reds helps the cause of peace. They suggest that ‘you never fight the people you trade with.’ Apparently they cannot even remember as far back as the late Thirties when this exact type of thinking resulted in the sale of scrap iron and oil to the Japanese just before World War II. After the attack on Pearl Harbor it became tragically clear that while trade with friends may promote peace, trade with a threatening enemy is an act of self-destruction. Have we forgotten that fatal lesson so soon?” Former FBI agent W. Cleon Skousen, Naked Communist

“…those American merchants and manufacturers who in the bureaus of the Kremlin seek profitable orders and favors from the communist tyrants. In fact, some businessmen who are either exceptionally unintelligent or extraordinarily unscrupulous are now proffering their merchandise and service to the Kremlin masters…In the waiting rooms of the Kremlin, American businessmen dream of personal gains and profits while thousands of American boys in Vietnam are slain by communist bullets made in the USSR.” Benson, Ezra Taft. An Enemy Hath Done This

“As expanding trade deals creates new bonds with foreign countries it dissolves old bonds of patriotism. When Jimmy Carter imposed a grain embargo on Moscow for its invasion of Afghanistan US farmers, once militantly anti-communist, voted Carter out. Their livelihood was tied thanks to the grain deals of the Nixon era, to Soviet grain purchases. Self-interest had changed the farmers’ perception of national interest.” Buchanan, Patrick J. The Great Betrayal

In the wake of the scandal where Toshiba sold valuable submarine technology to the Soviet Union, Pat Buchanan lamented the power of big money and lobbyists in neutralizing anti-communist actions on Capitol Hill: “When Congress tried to impose sanctions, US lobbyists were all over Capitol Hill, pleading for amnesty-even though Toshiba had put at risk US national security and the lives of American sailors. Did trade trump patriotism?” Information quoted from Judis, John B. The Paradox of American Democracy

“It is amazing to me how conservatives brazenly wave the flag and bellow from the rooftops about freedom. That is until it threatens their bottom line – then it’s a hearty cheer for tyranny… Make no mistake about it, the Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers are squarely on the side of police states and oppression. They ought to be deeply ashamed of themselves and the American people ought to take note of their self-serving treachery.” Wayne Besen, “The Chamber of Chumps Supports Totalitarianism” June 30, 2014


“It is with great pride that I reject (the U.S. Chamber of Commerce) award, and call on them to stand on the side of America, instead of on the side of China and corporate interests seeking to exploit people for profit…The U.S. Chamber is in the pocket of Communist China and big companies seeking cheap labor in the United States…We think it is morally repugnant for the chamber to pursue, as a matter of public policy, initiatives which exploit the poor and oppressed, just so they can keep labor costs down for their Fortune 500 member companies…In the past two months, the Chamber has made it clear that it is mostly interested in promoting and passing legislation granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.” Congressman Kerry Bentivolio (R-Michigan), 2014

…As long as the Soviet junta (keeps) on receiving credits, money, technology, grain deals, and political recognition, from all these traitors of democracy or freedom, there is no hope—there is not much hope—for changes in my country. And the system will not collapse by itself, simply because it’s being nourished by so-called ‘American imperialism.’ This is the greatest paradox in (the) history of mankind, when (the) capitalist world supports and actively nourishes its own destroyer (destructor)…If we are talking about capitalists or wealthy businessmen, I think they are selling the rope from which they will hang very soon. If they don’t stop, if they cannot curb their unsettled desire for profit, and if they keep on trading with the monster of the Soviet Communism, they are going to hang very soon. And they will pray to be killed, but unfortunately they will be sent to Alaska, probably, to manage (the) industry of slaves.” Yuri Bezmenov, former Novosti agent and KGB collaborator

“…my KGB instructors specifically made the point: never bother with leftists. Forget about these political prostitutes. Aim higher. This was my instruction: try to get into large-circulation, established conservative media; reach filthy-rich movie makers; intellectuals, so-called ‘academic’ circles; cynical, egocentric people who can look into your eyes with angelic expression and tell you a lie. These are the most recruitable people: people who lack moral principles, who are either too greedy or too (much) suffer from self importance. They feel that they matter a lot. These are the people who(m) (the) KGB wanted very much to recruit.” Yuri Bezmenov, former Novosti agent and KGB collaborator

“It is this stupidity about aid to the communists that will be the fatal mistake of the West. Of course, some businessmen in the West and some men in Western governments are not stupid; they intend to help communism conquer the world. But most are simply greedy.” Shams, Abdul. In Cold Blood (former adviser to the communist puppet Afghan president Hafizullah Amin)

“…the Soviets are now in partnership with large Western corporations to consolidate maximum extension of their power and to obtain the production of arms and the latest technical equipment for the police.” Former high level CPSU International Department and World Peace Council official Michael Voslensky

“The (American) businessmen who built the Soviet Kama River truck plant should be shot as traitors.” Former Soviet Defense Ministry official Avraham Shifrin

USBIC head Anthony Harrigan observed in December 1985 that American multinational companies traded with the USSR because they “were simply greedy. Some thought that free trade with the Soviets would produce lasting détente. Again and again, however, they were proved wrong.” Information quoted from The Southeast Missourian December 18, 1985

“…my chief critics-very vehement-were heads of heavy technological hardware companies who turned out to be extreme libertarians who put profit first, not freedom first.” Sidney Hook, 1985 on the criticism he received by technology firms who exported goods to the Soviet Union.

One US-USSR Trade and Economic Council (USTEC) member remembered meeting with four other industrialists, several admirals, and a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff late in 1974. One admiral bemoaned the strengthening of Soviet military power as a result of hi-tech sales by American multinationals that were also USTEC members. The next day, the same industrialist attended a private dinner in New York given by a major investment banking house. The guest of honor was Dzhermen Gvishiani, the Soviet official whose specialty was purchasing high technology goods in the West. One after another, the thirty other businessmen at the dinner boasted about the last big transaction they had made with Gvishiani. One officer who witnessed this lovefest recalled that “The dichotomy between the luncheon in Washington and the dinner in New York was just astounding. These guys were bragging as if they had just sold a ton of frankfurters.” Some CEOs clearly engaged in intellectual contortionism when they sought to justify high technology sales to the Soviets. For example, Charles Lecht, former President of Advanced Computer Techniques Corporation, tried to advance the line that Soviet interest in American high technology stemmed primarily from curiosity rather than technological need: “Primarily I have come to the conclusion that the concept that the Soviets want U.S. technology because they can’t make it themselves or they can’t buy it themselves is a fallacious one. I have concluded that the Soviet technology establishment—in the country which produces more scientific literature than any other country in the world—is capable of producing what it wants. I have thus concluded that the Soviets have been looking for U.S. technology primarily because they want to find out how our military materiel work, our missiles, our aircraft, our radar, our sonar, and the like.” Information quoted from Sutton, Antony C. The Best Enemy Money Can Buy

High ranking Soviet official Anatoly Chernyaev was briefed by Soviet Foreign Trade Minister Vladimir Shushkov during the 1970s about the US-Soviet Trade and Economic Council (USTEC). One such briefing described USTEC on January 21, 1978 as “’the biggest monopolist giants, such as General Motors.’ Some of them were willing to provide the Soviets with ‘badly needed products, including those of military significance.’” The American members of USTEC informed Shushkov that “We can give you any loans. You just name a dozen of products you would supply to us in exchange. Let them even be not good enough for the US or West European markets–no problem, we operate all over the world. We have simply coercive markets in the Third World, where we can sell whatever you want.” Chernyaev noted the following characteristics of USTEC “Their cynicism: the multi-national corporations, members of the US-USSR Council, organize ‘positive results’ of opinion polls in the US in favour of the development of Soviet-American economic links…They pay good money to all these Gallups for a poll to produce the required result.” Information quoted from Soviet documents quoted in Frontpagemag.com September 1, 2010

Gorbachev stated to an audience of US businessmen in 1987: “Let’s think how to rid ourselves of these shackles. We want it to be profitable for you, we understand that co-operation does not succeed if there are not profits and an interest in it. Let’s think in such a way that it is in our interest to go into the American market with our goods.” “Gorbachev’s Meeting with US Businessmen” Moscow Home Service December 14, 1987

In 1987 the First Chicago National Bank lent $200 million to the Soviet Union. Observers expressed fears that such a loan would help finance Moscow’s ICBM modernization program. In response, a representative from First Chicago National Bank stupidly replied “It could of course but we would hope not. We can’t control that.” Information quoted from Gorbachev’s Grand Deception Intelligence Digest Strategic Briefing Paper 130 (Intelligence International Ltd., 1989)

The head of Morgan Guaranty Bank in London, Daniel Davidson, cavalierly noted in reference to his bank’s loan to Bulgaria: “For all we know, they may be buying uranium with it.” Information quoted from Barnet, Richard. Global Reach

A spokesman for the First Chicago Bank reported that a loan disbursed to the USSR in 1985 was for “civil exports.” He admitted that theoretically the loan could be for anything, since it was not tied to any specific purpose. Information quoted from Shelton, Judy. The Coming Soviet Crash

USTEC President James Giffen extolled the virtues of trade with the Soviet Union at an April 1988 dinner in Moscow with 500 American businessmen present. Giffen admitted at the dinner that greed was the motive for trade with the USSR: “This is not aid, this is trade…What we’re after is profit.” Information quoted from Shelton, Judy. The Coming Soviet Crash

USTEC President James Giffen was asked whether America retained an interest in making the USSR “an economic superpower?” Giffen responded: “I think we do.” USTEC President James Giffen, 1989

M.S. (Gorbachev) met with American businessmen, who together with Velikhov are organizing a program to teach our guys about business. Marvel! The ‘sharks of imperialism’ are investing billions in us, for nothing! Soviet official and Gorbachev aide Anatoly Chernyaev, diary entry, December 7, 1991

“We must take everything we can …Lenin, incidentally, said that in order to become a real communist, one must take from capitalism all the best things that mankind has stored up over 1,000 years.” Vladimir Shcherbakov Soviet television 1991

The Yeltsin regime’s Special Envoy to Western lending institutions and Chief Executive of the state-owned electricity monopoly Unified Energy Systems, Anatoly B. Chubais noted in an interview in Kommersant Daily that the Russian government “conned” the West and multilateral lending agencies out of almost $20 billion in loans. Chubais justified Russian skullduggery when he stated “In such situations, the authorities have to do it. We ought to. The financial institutions understand, despite the fact that we conned them out of $20 billion, that we had no other way out.” Information quoted from Los Angeles Times September 9, 1998

The US Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers placed newspaper ads which opposed President Obama’s sanctions against Putin’s Russia. Wayne Besen, “The Chamber of Chumps Supports Totalitarianism” June 30, 2014

In 1974, Polish Vice-Minister for Security Miroslaw Milewski remarked that Poland paid money for normally banned technology purchased from NATO countries: “Of course we pay but not all that much, considering what we get. Those capitalists would sell their mothers and fathers for a little money. I’m telling you it’s a gold mine. You just have to know your way around these things.” Polish Vice-Minister for Security Miroslaw Milewski, 1974 quoted in Spasowski, Romuald. The Liberation of One

“You fools, you sit for 15 or 20 years in prison and expect the Americans to come. You expected the Americans would come and release you. Now, I will give you the news. The Americans have come but not to release you. They come to help us; do business with us; to trade with us. You fools have not known. If you beg them, the Americans give nothing. If you insult them, if you mock them, they give you money. We have been cleverer than you.” Commandant of the Gherla prisons Major Alexandrescu speech to Romanian political prisoners quoted in Schwarz Report July 18, 1966

In a meeting with Yugoslav communist ruler Josip Broz Tito, Romanian communist ruler Nicolae Ceausescu noted that one of the main missions of Foreign Intelligence (DIE) was “to build communism with capitalism’s political help, money, and technology through influence operations.” Tito responded that “We wouldn’t be able to get anything from the West by riding on Moscow’s coattails and without Western money and technology there wouldn’t be any communist society in our countries. That’s why we should have our own way of dealing with capitalism.” Ceausescu noted in response “Letting the West believe that we’re different, that we don’t want its scalp.” Tito responded “They call it ‘Tito’s Triangle.’ I set up three basic guidelines: friendly smile toward the West, maximum take from it, and no contamination from capitalism…But that’s not something we want to talk about out loud-not here on this yacht and not even in our deepest sleep. Let our men work together. They know what we need and they can keep their mouths shut.” Pacepa, Ion Mihai. Red Horizons

George Gellert of the New York-based Atlanta Company “relished the connections as well as the profits” connected with trade with communist Romania. Howard Goodman of Florida utilized cheap and controlled Romanian labor to finish making Romanian shoes for export into the American market. These shoes were heavily sold in the US market. According to former US Ambassador to Romania David Funderburk, Goodman was not “atypical of the businessmen who support political positions in order to preserve a good money making opportunity.” Funderburk, David M. Pinstripes and Reds

“Our collaboration with the capitalistic powers during the last war must not be regarded in any way as collaboration and allegiance with them in the future. On the contrary, those powers are our natural enemies even though they helped us through force of circumstances to destroy the most aggressive section of their own ranks. It may well be that we shall be able to make some use of their help to accomplish their own definite and final destruction.” Yugoslav communist dictator Josip Broz Tito secret speech, 1946 quoted in San Antonio Light October 7, 1946

Following the valuable guidelines given us by our Supreme Guide, Comrade Ceausescu we are making wide scale use of venal and corruptible East-West traders as well as of our own proprietary firms in the West for worming the equipment out of the United States.” General Teodor Sirbu, head of the DIE technological espionage unit quoted in Pacepa, Ion Mihai Red Horizons

We don’t have to stir out of Bucharest any more…We are besieged by capitalist business groups. Each one is outbidding the next. They are offering us fabulous terms.

When a company does business, one doesn’t occupy oneself with politics. We don’t support communism or capitalism…I have commerce with Vietnam and if at the moment Vietnam is communist or capitalist, I don’t care as long as we make profits.” Vo Quang Tu, the manager of Vietimex and Vinamedic quoted in Gendron, Gilbert. The Vietcong Front in Quebec

Engelmann noted that while stationed in Red China, he came into contact with the communist elite in the Party and PLA. A PLA captain asked his Commander why American business delegations send technology to China. The Commander replied that “They do it for money. This is the contradiction of capitalism. They are loyal not to a country but to dollars. This is the how they are different from us. We have our country. They have their dollars. And this in time will destroy them. We will give them enough rope, and, without realizing it, they will hang themselves.” China’s Special Ways and Means As Told to Larry Engelmann by DXY (“Yvonne”) September 30, 2012 Accessed From: http://lde421.blogspot.com/2012/09/chinas-special-ways-and-means-as-told.html

“In order to make use of foreign capital, we must have dealings with capitalists who are only keen on looking for more profitable outlets for their investments…If we fail to provide favourable and attractive conditions for these investors, they will not readily make investments in our country or will not let their investments continue for a long time even if they do so.” People’s Daily (China) March 16, 1984

In 1995, AT&T led the resistance to a Code of Conduct for American multinationals operating in China. AT&T believed that such a Code “would be viewed by the Chinese government as another attempt to influence Chinese domestic politics and would be detrimental to U.S. business.” Information quoted from Multinational Monitor April 1996

“…once we open our doors, the profit-seeking Western capitalists will invest capital and technology in China to assist our development, so that they can occupy the biggest market in the world…our numerous overseas Chinese help us create the most favorable environment for the introduction of foreign capital, foreign technology and advanced experience into China…China’s great economic expansion will inevitably come with a significant development in our military forces, creating conditions for our expansion overseas.” General Chi Haotian, 2005

“…right now it is not the time to openly break up with them yet. Our reform and opening to the outside world still rely on their capital and technology, we still need America. Therefore, we must do everything we can to promote our relationship with America, learn from America in all aspects and use America as an example to reconstruct our country. We also must never forget what Comrade Xiaoping emphasized ‘refrain from revealing the ambitions and put others off the track.’ The hidden message is: we must put up with America; we must conceal our ultimate goals, hide our capabilities and await the opportunity. In this way, our mind is clear.” General Chi Haotian, 2005

Chinese Communist Party theorists in late 2008 and late 2009 viewed globalization as a positive force and free trade as a bridge to “absorb the nutrients from ‘capitalist bodies’ (so as to) strengthen China’s socialist body;” “to win time and accumulate strength via economic development in order to eventually conquer capitalism,” and “to take advantage of (China’s) nationalized system and do the big things (the CCP) wants.” “The Chinese Communist Regime’s Strategies to Overpower the US” Chinascope Analysis Series January 2014

“For the last two decades, Jiang Zemin and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have assaulted our universal values through enticement, coercion, and manipulation. By the end of the 1980s, the threat of nuclear war had all but vanished, but it was replaced by a more insidious weapon: Greed.

“Many suppliers approached us with the details of the machinery and with figures and numbers of instruments and materials…In the true sense of the word, they begged us to purchase their goods. And for the first time the truth of the saying, ‘They will sell their mother for money,’ dawned on me. We purchased whatever we required…”[1] The father of the so-called “Islamic Bomb” Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan, 1995

In December 1974, 50 businessmen from large American companies visited Syria. The Baathist government ministries were advised that the visiting American businessmen “must be persuaded that it is in their interest to deal with the Arabs and that blind support for the Hebrew state would harm their interests. This is the language this kind of people can most easily understand.” Information quoted from Le Monde December 31, 1974

Former Iraqi Baathist insider and defector Hussein Sumiada commented on American businessmen selling military dual-use technology to the Iraqis “I was never sure if Americans needed duping. Money talks, and business is business especially in the arms business.” Information quoted from Sumaida, Hussein and Jerome, Carole. Circle of Fear: My Life as an Israeli and Iraqi Spy

In an August 27, 2015 article, Al-Habtoor slammed European countries, as well as the U.S., for the sudden change in their attitude towards Iran.

“The industrialists are greatly mistaken if they think that Fascism, having accepted their subsidies in 1919, 1920, and 1921, has given up protecting the workers.” Public speech of Fascist organizer named Cuzzeri, 1925 quoted in Salvemini, Gaetano. Under the Axe of Fascism

Nothing irritates us much as to be taken for pillars of order. Nothing so exasperates us as the people who come to us through fear of communism. Those good people will have to realize and we shall soon make them realize that the weight of the social problems are now on our shoulders and that they would be wiser to fear us than to fear communism.” Top Italian Fascist Alessandro Pavolini, 1938 quoted in Molnar, Thomas. Decline of the Intellectual

While the possessing and capitalist classes had welcomed the advent of Fascism and the Duce as the savior of order and society and the defender of Italy against Bolshevism, now the situation had altered. The Duce is today more popular among the working classes than among the capitalist bourgeoisie…The bourgeoisie complains that ‘Mussolini is slowly, sweetly, and silently, moving in the direction of a form of Bolshevism.’ In effect, there is a reaction of class egoism against the vanguard politics of the corporative state.” Fascist secret police (OVRA) report, 1931

“I won’t let those captains of industry put anything over me. Captains! I’d like to know the bridge on which on which they’ve ever manned the helm. They’re shallow people who can’t see beyond their petty affairs.” Hitler, address to small gathering of Nazi Party officials, 1932 quoted in Turner, Henry Ashby. German big business and the rise of Hitler

Richard Breiting, the editor-in-chief of the Leipziger Neueste Nachrichten and adherent of the German People’s Party (DVP), documented Hitler’s strategy of deception: “Hitler was quite content to leave Breiting, as representing the bourgeoisie and conservative Saxon circles, with the impression that the National-Socialists were irresistibly on the move to victory. The agitator was not even interested in the publication of the interview in the press. Instead he wished to win Breiting over and he knew what a brain-washing exercise this would entail. He had to be careful that his ideas did not alert his internal and external enemies. He therefore wished to avoid publication of his statements at all costs. He proposed to continue to throw dust in the eyes of the world. At this point his requirement was to attract disciples and win over the manipulators of the influential press.” Breiting, Richard and Hitler, Adolf. Secret conversations with Hitler: the two newly-discovered 1931 interviews

They get in everywhere these National Socialists. They are patient, they bore from within and without.” Bella Fromm, 1932 quoted in Burleigh, Michael. Confronting the Nazi Past: New Debates on Modern German History

Hitler wanted to prevent leaks concerning his economic program from this organization; he stated that the Nazis must “conceal the glowing torch behind locked doors.” Turner, Henry Ashby. German big business and the rise of Hitler

“Our activities in parliament must be evaluated as merely part of this propaganda work. Our participation in the parliament does not indicate a support, but rather an undermining of the parliamentarian system. It does not indicate that we renounce our anti-parliamentarian attitude, but that we are fighting the enemy with his own weapons and that we are fighting for our National Socialist goal from the parliamentary platform.” Nazi Reichstag Deputy Wilhelm Frick, 1927

We are an anti-parliamentarian party that for good reasons rejects the Weimar constitution and its republican institutions…So why do we want to be in the Reichstag? We enter the Reichstag to arm ourselves with democracy’s weapons. If democracy is foolish enough to give us free railway passes and salaries, that is its problem. It does not concern us. Any way of bringing about the revolution is fine by us. If we succeed in getting sixty or seventy of our party’s agitators and organizers elected to the various parliaments, the state itself will pay for our fighting organization. That is amusing and entertaining enough to be worth trying.” Goebbels, Joseph. Der Angriff. Aufsatze aus der Kampfzeit (Munich: Zentralverlag der NSDAP., 1935)


“National Socialism uses liberalism and capitalism in order to create its own economy. It does not smash traditional liberalistic institutions. It uses them as a tool, like a painter uses a brush.” Volkischer Beobachter quoted in New York Times December 6, 1934

In 1935, Der Angriff noted in an article titled “To Overcome Capitalism” that “one should stress the point that we have no complaint against capitalism as an economic technique, but we strongly reject any attempt to justify demands for leadership in economic policy by prevailing circumstances.” The newspaper attacked “well-known economic leaders” and “certain economic reporters” for over-emphasizing capitalist aspects in the Nazi economy. Barkai, Avraham. Nazi Economics

“Capitalistic arrangements that could be useful have been utilized. To shatter them would have been a costly pleasure…all these capitalistic arrangements have received new foundations. The system serves as a tool in the hands of policy. Where capitalism still considers itself untouched it has in fact already been harnessed by policy.” Nazi economics editor, 1935 quoted in Barkai, Avraham. Nazi Economics

Hitler “made capitalism serve the ends of his power politics without feeling any twinges of his socialistic conscience.” Hitler’s former Press Secretary in the Nazi regime Otto Dietrich

Why bother with such half-measures when I have far more important matters in hand, such as the people themselves? The masses always cling to extremes. After all, what is meant by nationalization, by socialization? What has been changed by the fact that a factory is now owned by the State instead of by a Mr. Smith? But once directors and employees alike have been subjected to a universal discipline, there will be a new order for which all expressions used hitherto will be quite inadequate…The day of individual happiness has passed. Instead, we shall feel a collective happiness. Can there be any greater happiness than a National Socialist meeting in which speakers and audience feel as one? It is the happiness of sharing…What are ownership and income to that? Why need we trouble to socialize banks and factories? We socialize human beings.” Hitler, as quoted by Rauschning, Hermann. The Voice of Destruction

“…there is no place left in Germany for foreign capital.” Nazi Party head of economics commission Bernhard Koehler, 1935 quoted in New York Times March 8, 1935

In 1938, General Motors President Alfred Sloan remarked that, as an international business, his firm “ought to conduct its international operations in purely business terms without consideration of the political ideologies or policies of nation-states.” General Motors President Alfred Sloan, 1938, commenting on trade relations with Nazi Germany

The State Department noted that American multinationals “pursued private profit even to the detriment of public and national long-range interest, frequently using methods that were not only frowned upon by the government but illegal.” State Department commenting on the trade between American multinationals and Nazi Germany

Documents show that the parent companies followed a conscious strategy of continuing to do business with the Nazi regime, rather than divest themselves of their German assets. Less than three weeks after the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia in March 1939, GM Chairman Alfred P. Sloan defended this strategy as sound business practice, given the fact that the company’s German operations were “highly profitable.”

The internal politics of Nazi Germany “should not be considered the business of the management of General Motors,” Sloan explained in a letter to a concerned shareholder dated April 6, 1939. “We must conduct ourselves (in Germany) as a German organization…We have no right to shut down the plant.”

Documents suggest that the principal motivation of both companies (Ford and General Motors) during this period was to protect their investments. An FBI report dated July 23, 1941 quoted Mooney as saying that he would refuse to take any action that might “make Hitler mad.” In fall 1940, Mooney told the journalist Henry Paynter that he would not return his Nazi medal because such an action might jeopardize GM’s $100 million investment in Germany. “Hitler has all the cards,” Paynter quoted Mooney as saying. “Mooney probably thought that the war would be over very quickly, so why should we give our wonderful company away,” said German researcher Anita Kugler, who used Nazi archives to trace the company’s dealings with Nazi Germany. Washington Post November 30, 1998

“The activities of General Motors, Ford and Chrysler prior to and during World War II…are instructive. At that time, these three firms dominated motor vehicle production in both the United States and Germany. Due to its mass production capabilities, automobile manufacturing is one of the most crucial industries with respect to national defense. As a result, these firms retained the economic and political power to affect the shape of governmental relations both within and between these nations in a manner which maximized corporate global profits. In short, they were private governments unaccountable to the citizens of any country yet possessing tremendous influence over the course of war and peace in the world. The substantial contribution of these firms to the American war effort in terms of tanks, aircraft components, and other military equipment is widely acknowledged. Less well known are the simultaneous contributions of their foreign subsidiaries to the Axis Powers. In sum, they maximized profits by supplying both sides with the materiel needed to conduct the war.” “American supporters of the European Fascists” United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary, 1974 Accessed From: http://www.rationalrevolution.net/war/american_supporters_of_the_europ.htm

“At the present moment more than a hundred American corporations have subsidiaries here or cooperative understandings. The DuPonts have three allies in Germany that are aiding in the armament business. Their chief ally is the I. G. Farben Company, a part of the Government which gives 200,000 marks a year to one propaganda organization operating on American opinion. Standard Oil Company (New York sub-company) sent $2,000,000 here in December 1933 and has made $500,000 a year helping Germans make Ersatz gas for war purposes; but Standard Oil cannot take any of its earnings out of the country except in goods. They do little of this, report their earnings at home, but do not explain the facts. The International Harvester Company president told me their business here rose 33% a year (arms manufacture, I believe), but they could take nothing out. Even our airplanes people have secret arrangement with Krupps. General Motor Company and Ford do enormous businesses (sic) here through their subsidiaries and take no profits out. I mention these facts because they complicate things and add to war dangers.” Letter of US Ambassador in Germany William Dodd addressed to President Roosevelt, 1936 quoted in Sutton, Antony. Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler

…I have had plenty of opportunity in my post in Berlin to witness how close some of our American ruling families are to the Nazi regime…Certain American industrialists had a great deal to do with bringing fascist regimes into being in both Germany and Italy. They extended aid to help Fascism occupy the seat of power, and they are helping to keep it there.” US Ambassador in Germany William Dodd 1937 quoted in “American supporters of the European Fascists” Accessed From: http://www.rationalrevolution.net/war/american_supporters_of_the_europ.htm

Dr. Westrick consults in a language which businessmen understand the language of big orders, big profits, inside-track, ground-floor relations with the world’s largest single customer: a coordinated, collectivized Europe. He can readily make his visitors see that it’s good business to play with Hitler. And it is–for a few Americans for a short period. But it’s bad business for American economy as a whole in the long run. It’s suicidal business for the democratic American nation in a totalitarian world. The American Mercury urges that our government, and private agencies like the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, the Manufacturers Association and organized labor, act now to make it impossible, illegal and traitorous for individual firms to transact business with any totalitarian nation. We must confront foreign trade monopolies with the full force of a unified American economy if we are to survive as a free nation in an enslaved world.” Eugene Lyons The American Mercury, September 1940

Quite contrary to the expectations nourished by some well-meaning capitalists and economists, national socialism has not saved capitalism and private enterprise but tends to their complete destruction with very probable though not quite inevitable repercussions on the internal political structure of the other countries also.” Ernst Wilhelm Meyer, the former first secretary of the Nazi German Embassy in Washington New York Times April 2, 1939

The business competition which Nazi Germany has been organizing under the guise of private enterprise is based on exactly the same principles (as the Soviet Union); the individual merchant outside Germany believing in principles of free trade is unable to cope with it…The Reich had been hiding its identity behind the façade of a private business corporation and the when the time came did not hesitate to utilize its powerful political and economic position.” Robert, Karl. Hitler’s Counterfeit Reich

“…all Dr. Schacht’s (Minister of Economics) manipulations for taking advantage of foreign businessmen will be useless when the last foreign businessman has disappeared and the last neutral state has been drawn into the maelstrom.” Robert, Karl. Hitler’s Counterfeit Reich

I never made you any promises…I’ve nothing to thank you for. What you did for my movement you did for your own benefit, and wrote it off as an insurance premium.” Hitler’s retort to Fritz Thyssen, 1934, quoted in Turner, Henry Ashby. German big business and the rise of Hitler

In all the Fascist states, particularly in Italy and Germany, individualistic capitalism is fast proceeding into collectivism by the road of state capitalism. This development is a serious blow to the economic royalists who backed the Fascist International without understanding the tremendous pressure of the problem of the Haves and Have Nots on both individuals and nations.” Ludecke, Kurt. I Knew Hitler

…nothing is more astonishing than the blindness of Conservative economic and social leaders, not only in Germany but everywhere, to the fact that dynamism, whether Fascist or National Socialist or any other, is revolutionary, and that its constructive elements are only in appearance conservative, and in reality work on the strict lines of State Socialism, leading of necessity to the expropriation of the leaders of industry and the deposition of the past ruling classes. To the outside observer it is simply inexplicable how captains of industry and financiers, used to careful and unemotional consideration and calculation, allow themselves to be deceived as to the true nature of the dynamic revolution, and still see in ‘Fascism’ a patron of order and security, which will restore the ability of trade and industry to show profits.” Rauschning, Hermann. The Revolution of Nihilism: A Warning to the West

“The stupid error the big German industrialists committed was that they completely misjudged or underrated the revolutionary character of Hitlerism…they were strongly convinced that by bringing Hitler into the Government they would get him under their own control and thereby make him innocuous. They never approved of or sympathized with his aims, which they believed they could afford not to take very seriously.” Stolper, Gustav. This Age of Fable

“Dear Mr. X. Y.: This letter will probably be a disappointment to you, but I must confess that I think as most German businessmen do who today fear National Socialism as much as they did Communism in 1932. But there is a distinction. In 1932, the fear of Communism was a phantom; today National Socialism is a terrible reality. Business friends of mine are convinced that it will be the turn of the ‘white Jews’ (which means us, Aryan businessmen) after the Jews have been expropriated. Just when this will happen and the extent to which ‘Aryan’ businessmen will be pillaged depends on the internal struggle within the Nazi party…When we consider that Hitler himself came not from the ranks of organized labor, but from the ruined middle class or the fifth estate, what guarantee have we that he will not make common cause with the bandits whom he has put into uniforms? The difference between this and the Russian system is much less than you think, despite the fact that officially we are still independent businessmen. You have no idea how far State control goes and how much power the Nazi representatives have over our work. The worst of it is that they are so ignorant. In this respect they certainly differ from the former Social-Democratic officials. These Nazi radicals think of nothing except ‘distributing the wealth.’ Some businessmen have even started studying Marxist theories, so that they will have a better understanding of the present economic system. How can we possibly manage a firm according to business principles if it is impossible to make any predictions as to the prices at which goods are to be bought and sold? We are completely dependent on arbitrary Government decisions concerning quantity, quality and prices for foreign raw materials. There are so many different economic agreements with foreign countries, not to mention methods of payment, that no one can possibly understand them all. Nevertheless Government representatives are permanently at work in our offices, examining costs of production, profits, tax bills, etc…There is no elasticity of prices, sorely needed though it be by businessmen. While State representatives are busily engaged in investigating and interfering, our agents and salesmen are handicapped, because they never know whether or not a sale at a higher price will mean denunciation as a ‘profiteer’ or ‘saboteur,’ followed by a prison sentence. You cannot imagine how taxation has increased. Yet everyone is afraid to complain about it. The new State loans are nothing but confiscation of private property, because no one believes that the Government will ever make repayment, nor even pay interest after the first few years. Compared with these new State loans, the bonds issued during the World War were gilt-edged investments. We businessmen still make sufficient profit, sometimes even large profits, but we never know how much we are going to be able to keep…There are terrible times coming. You can imagine how I feel when I think that I am going to have to go through this terrible debacle. If only I had succeeded in smuggling out $10,000 or even $5,000, I would leave Germany with my family…” Testimony of large German industrialist to Reimann, Gunter. Vampire Economy: Doing Business Under Fascism

“…a lot remained to be done in Germany. Capitalism was not yet eliminated. There were still figures anxious to enrich themselves even in wartime. The best thing would be to execute them by firing squad but conditions were not yet ripe for that.” Joseph Goebbels, 1942 quoted in Bernhard R. Kroener, Rolf-Dieter Muller, Hans Umbreit. Germany and the Second World War: Volume 5

Later, during the war, more extreme Nazis, including some SS leaders, speculated about a partially state-owned socialist economy under a completed Nazi revolution once victory had been achieved.” Payne, Stanley G. A History of Fascism

“It’s obvious that the power monopoly must be vested in the State. What is true of the power industry is equally true of all the essential primary materials—that is to say, it applies also to petroleum, coal, steel and water-power. Capitalist interests will have to be excluded from this sort of business. We do not, of course, contemplate preventing a private person from using the energy of the tiny stream that powers his small works…” Hitler, Adolf. Hitler’s Table Talk

According to Albert Speer, radical Nazis such as Martin Bormann also sought to alter the postwar German economy: “It is certainly a fact that Hitler had the serious intention of raising the living standard of the workers. This was his principal post-war aim, besides his building projects. After the war, undoubtedly a radical line would have been taken against the ‘idle capitalist’ living on his profits. The working men of all classes would probably have benefited at his expense.” Kilzer, Louis C. Hitler’s Traitor

Hitler reminded his listeners that Germany’s economy was mobilized “with a planned economy from above” and that “state control of the economy” would continue after the war for the purpose of preventing private interests from injuring the interests of the nation. Overy, R.J. The Dictators: Hitler’s Germany and Stalin’s Russia

“… (the) anti-capitalist offensive will be resumed on the first day of peace!” Goebbels 1944 quoted in American Mercury August 1944

Even after the war we would not be able to renounce state control of the economy.” Hitler, 1942 quoted in Zitelmann, Rainer. Hitler: The Policies of Seduction

Our new system is not meant just for the war time. It is a matter of course that we will require economic controls for an indefinite period after the war. The more simple the means of control, the better it will work in peacetime. There will be changes in the degree of control, but not in the methods used.” Secretary of the Ministry of Armaments Hans Kehrl, 1942 quoted in Tooze, J. Adam. Statistics and the German State, 1900-1945

In order to set an example, one industrialist must at one time be put against the wall, and it must be a prominent one.” Adolf Hitler quoted in Trials of war criminals before the Nuremberg Military Tribunals under Control Council law no. 10, Nuernberg, October 1946-April 1949, Volume 7 1949

“There will be no more princes. Hitler gave me the order to finish off all the German princes and to do so immediately. He suggested that the most important of them should be charged with espionage and high treason, others with committing sexual perversions. The People’s Court will thereby sentence them to death. Goebbels wants the hangings to take place in Berlin before the Imperial Palace. The princes should be herded on foot down Unter den Linden. The German Work Front will provide the necessary personnel who will spit on them and in this way give expression to the anger of the nation…The property of the princes will be divided between party members and Old Fighters.” Heinrich Himmler’s plans for the Junker aristocracy as witnessed by his physician, quoted in Petropoulos, Jonathan. Royals and the Reich

Don’t let yourself be diverted from the main issue by present appearances of aimless chaos and arbitrary organization. By the main issue I mean the deposition of politics from its old importance and the transformation of the system of free markets and private enterprise into a controlled economic system. It’s obvious this can’t be done overnight, and that we must operate behind a smoke-screen. What we are working out here is the new mechanism of production.” Hitler’s Under Secretary for Economics Wilhelm Keppler quoted in Rauschning, Hermann. Men of Chaos

Can you ever abolish unemployment in a capitalist economy, in a free market economy? I’ll save you the trouble of a reply it can’t be done! But even if we are not sentimental Socialists, and consequently not doctrinaires out to create a ‘just’ social order, we happen to come close to Marxist Socialism on some important points.” Hitler’s Under Secretary for Economics Wilhelm Keppler quoted in Rauschning, Hermann. Men of Chaos

The promotion of private enterprise is not the line of our future policy.” Hitler’s Under Secretary for Economics Wilhelm Keppler quoted in Rauschning, Hermann. Men of Chaos

“The economic power of the Versailles States is so enormous that I can’t risk antagonizing them at the very outset. If I begin my regime with socialism, Paris, London, and New York will be alarmed, the capitalists will take fright and combine, and I’ll be whipped before I know it. A preventive war would ruin everything. No, I’ve got to play ball with capitalism and keep the Versailles Powers in line by holding aloft the bogey of Bolshevism—make them believe that a Nazi Germany is the last bulwark against the Red flood. That’s the only way to come through the danger period, to get rid of Versailles and rearm. I can talk peace, but mean war… The primary thing is to get rid of Versailles and re-arm-socialism must come in the second line. Re-arming costs money, and so would what you call a revolutionary act. And I’ve little now, I tell you…No, it can’t be done…” Hitler as quoted by Ludecke, Kurt. I Knew Hitler

And if it’s going to take bombs to show these gentlemen in London, Paris, and New York that I mean business, well, they can have them. Don’t be afraid-I’ll go the limit when the time comes, but not before…Oh no, no this time-I’ve learned to wait…If they don’t understand any other language they’ll learn something if a dozen of these gold hyenas swim in their own blood in every capital of Europe and America.” Hitler as quoted by Ludecke, Kurt.

Stay with me and don’t worry. You will see that when the smoke all clears away the Yankees will be down here with satchels trying to get orders from us.” General Juan Peron, 1946 as quoted by Alexander, Robert J. The Peron Era

An influx of American businessmen flooded Peron’s Argentina “who thought they saw profits to be made in Peron’s economic development program.” Alexander, Robert J. The Peron Era

“Therefore we cannot possibly regard our relations with the capitalist countries as the beginning of a reconciliation with the capitalist powers by means of trade agreements…But we are convinced that the foreign capitalists, who will be obliged to work on the terms we offer them, will dig their own grave. Without them we cannot rearm ourselves; this is the dialectic of history; we cannot rearm ourselves without the electrification of Russia. But while strengthening Soviet Russia developing her productive forces foreign capital will fulfill the role Marx predicted for it when he said that capital was digging its own grave. With every additional shovel of coal, with every additional load of oil that we in Russia obtain with through the help of foreign technique capital will be digging its own grave.” Lev Kamenev Estimate of the World Situation and the Objectives of Communist Foreign Policy (Speech at the Tenth Party Congress, Moscow, March 15, 1921)

“We are going to use the capitalist money of the American imperialists to finance communist revolution.” Sandinista commander Jorge Wheelock, 1979

Our strategic allies tell us not to declare socialism. Here and in Rome, we know, we’ve talked about this being the first experience of building socialism with the dollars of capitalism.” Sandinista commander Bayardo Arce, secret speech to the Nicaraguan Socialist Party (PSN), 1984

“The conversation dealt with the importance of internal unrest as a weapon…Every state, they (Hanfstangel and Baldur von Schirach) reminded me, could by suitable methods be so split from within that little strength was required to break it down. Everywhere there were groups that desired independence, whether national or economic, or merely political. The scramble for fodder and distorted ambition—these were the unfailing means to a revolutionary weapon by which the enemy was struck from the rear. Finally, there were the businessmen, whose profits were their all-in-all. There was no patriotism that could hold out against all temptations. Besides, one could always dress these things up. It was really by no means difficult to find patriotic slogans that would cover all such enterprises and would at the same time win over men who were glad to salve their sensitive consciences with some such balsam. And ultimately it was all a question of money and organization.” Opinions of Baldur von Schirach, Putzi Hanfstangel, and Hitler as witnessed by Hermann Rauschning, 1933
