1917 (1925-2002) | Russia expert
Yes, sure this guy was written off as a nut, I know that, and so he shouldn't be here. Read him and learn he is sane. He is no joker, and praise God, you can find almost all his works published by his fans on the internet. More info.
Revolution and international finance are not at all inconsistent if the result of revolution is to establish more centralized authority.
I guess he was trying to help some strange things make sense to the average punter. Like Trotsky's arrest by the British authorities in Nova Scotia 1917, and subsequent release at the request of American ones. And why in New York he had been the guest of super capitalist John D. Rockefeller Jr., who obtained for him an U.S. passport. When he set off for Russia on the SS Christiana, he brought with him arms, 277 revolutionaries, and $20 million, supplied by the Wall Street banking firm of Kuhn, Loeb &Co... Much more could be said, but check out the Warburg (bank) and Lenin/Rothschild connection etc
Consider the image below as a demonstration of public knowledge (now lost), published by Robert Minor in St. Louis Post-Dispatch (1911). It portrays a bearded, beaming Karl Marx standing in Wall Street with Socialism tucked under his arm and accepting the congratulations of financial luminaries J.P. Morgan, Morgan partner George W. Perkins, a smug John D. Rockefeller, John D. Ryan of National City Bank, and Teddy Roosevelt ? prominently identified by his famous teeth ? in the background. Wall Street is decorated by Red flags. The cheering crowd and the airborne hats suggest that Karl Marx must have been a fairly popular sort of fellow in the New York financial district. Kind of interesting, especially to me as a former student of politics and history.
It is a relatively high res image, please right click and save to download, or open in new window. I will try and get a better image of this, cos in original it had "DEE-LIGHTED" at head.
