"[S]ince the substitution of an industrial for the agricultural order of society and the conquest of the industrial by the financial, the government of the Western nations, whether monarchical or republican, had passed into the invisible hands of a plutocracy, international in power and grasp. It was, I venture to suggest, this semioccult power which, automatically, rather than calculatedly, pushed the mass of the American people into the cauldron [of World War I]."

I think Fuller may be onto something. A retired Marine General Smedly butler said something very similar, are they right?

    I wonder if his reference to the "semi-occult" was directed towards Zionists. Certainly though, our government is no longer ours, but merely a front for the Globalists however you percieve them.

    hey Jim K...If you have never seen it, JFK by Oliver Stone is rather enlightening. I can't help but think that the "Coup d Etat" that happened as a result of Kennedy's murder was a major turning point in US history. The war mongers and power brokers have had no opposition since. Check it out, very interesting.

    There is still no moral reason known why America entered WWI.

    Totally correct. When does the truth about Rudolf Hess come out?
