Quote---Yes, I say we should be more like the Communist Chinese.....er, maybe not. I know, we need a Stalin or a Lenin.....er, maybe not. Perhaps we should be more like the Scandinavian countries - wait - they're broke as well. I know let's move to Iceland to escape all this doom and gloom........
Is Communism the true antithesis of Capitalism ?
Vladimir Ilich Lenin---The son of a petty bureaucrat, spent most of his adult life in poverty, has been responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of your fellow human beings and the enslavement of nearly a billion more. Lenin sat up nights in a dark attic, scheming how he could conquer the world. Can anyone dispute this ?
Adolph Hitler---The terror and destruction that this madman inflicted upon the world are universally recognized. Hitler came from a poor family which had absolutely no social position. He was an alleged high school drop-out, and nobody ever accused him of being cultured. Yet this man tried to conquer the world. During his early career he sat in a cold attic and wrote his ambitions to rule the world. Can anyone dispute this ?
Is it not theoretically possible that an university educated billionaire could be sitting, not in an attic, but in a penthouse, in Manhattan, London or Paris and dream the same dream as Lenin and Hitler ? People will have to admit it is theoretically possible. Julius Caesar, a wealthy aristocrat, did. And such a man might form an alliance or association with other like-minded men, might he not ? Caesar did. These men would be superbly educated, command immense social prestige and be able to pool astonishing amounts of money to carry out their purposes. These are advantages that Hitler and Lenin did not have.
People must realize that there have been the Hitlers, the Lenins, the Stalins, the Caesars, and Alexander the Greats throughout history. Why should we assume there are no such men today with perverted lusts for power ? And if these men happen to be billionaires, is it not possible that they would use men like Hitler and Lenin as pawns to seize power for themselves ?
Was Communism solely rooted and nourished in Russia, with no intervention from external influences ? Where were Lenin and Leon Trotsky, when the Czar, Nicholas 2 abdicated under pressure to do so by the Allies ? Lenin was in Switzerland, and had not yet boarded his famous sealed train, with 6 million dollars of gold which was arranged in great part by the Warburg banking family. Trotsky was in New York, and had not yet boarded his ship, with his war-chest of cash. The main purveyors of funds for the revolution, however, were neither the crackpot Russian millionaires nor the armed bandits of Lenin. The 'real' money primarily came from certain British and American circles which for a long time past had lent their support to the Russian revolutionary cause.
When the Warburg connection was exposed, Paul Warburg resigned his seat as a Director of the Federal Reserve.
John Schiff, the grandson of American financier Jacob Schiff revealed that "the old man sank about 20,000,000 dollars for the final triumph of Bolshevism in Russia".
Warburg/Schiff/Harriman/Milner/Rockefeller/Rothschild/Morgan---If people choose to look...in the Bolshevik Revolution, they will see many of the same old faces that were responsible for creating the Federal Reserve System, initiating the graduated income tax, setting up the tax-free foundations and pushing America into WWI.
No revolution can be successful without organization and money. "The downtrodden masses" usually provide little of the former and none of the latter. But affluent conspirators at the top can arrange for both.
What did these people possibly have to gain in financing the Russian Revolution ? What did they have to gain by keeping it alive and afloat, or, during the 1920's by pouring millions of dollars into what Lenin called his New Economic Program, thus saving the Soviets from collapse ? Why would these "capitalists" do all this ? If your "goal" is global conquest, you have to start somewhere. It may or may not have been coincidental, but Russia was the one major European country without a central bank. In Russia, for the first time, the "Communist" conspiracy gained a geographical homeland from which to launch assaults against the other nations of the world. The West now had an enemy.
