A report on how the greed of a privileged few, subsidized by public funding, creates substantial profits for themselves from mass human suffering.

This was a speech given by General Butler during a nationwide tour in the early 1930's, but it applies even more today! Listen as he frankly discusses, from his experience as a career military officer, how business interests commercially benefit from warfare. He then suggests several practical solutions for reducing the pillage.

  4. How to Smash This Racket!
  5. To Hell with War!
