Beyond conventional political thinking...,
This review is from: Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler: The Astonishing True Story of the American Financiers Who Bankrolled the Nazis (Paperback)Traditional political thinkers have trouble 'getting' Sutton. He's certainly no Nazi apologist, but neither is he Marxist, or even 'left leaning'. Neither, by the way, would Sarah Palin like him (if she indeed reads books, that is, which somehow I doubt). No, Sutton is that rare thing: someone who sees beyond traditional 'left' and 'right' politics; someone who recognises that there are interests that see political conflicts working for their benefit. In his work on The Order, Sutton describes this in some detail: the Hegelian idea of conflict. You encourage and fund both sides (in this case both the Nazis and Communists) to conflict: i.e. your 'thesis' and 'antithesis'. Those in control of this process also seek a certain outcome: the synthesis. In this case, that was centralised international governing bodies, such as the United Nations.
So, ignore the traditional theorists, open your mind, and explore some truly challenging thinking. Yes, read Antony Sutton, because he was one of those rare things: an independent mind who based his work on exhaustive research.
