Greatest Secret Of World War Two? How Much US Plutocracy Helped. Fascism. Before, During, After.

April 4, 2020

So the virus came from China… What does that have to do with the Second World War? Everything! The relationship of the Chinese dictatorship and US plutocracy is not without reminding us of the relation of US plutocracy with various fascist states, prior to World War Two (not just Germany, but also the USSR and Japan… Japan, which was running his invasion of the world thanks to US oil, until rudely interrupted by president Roosevelt in 1941… Germany, which invaded Spain in 1936-1939, thanks to countless US industrialists proposing their goods in exchange for future payments… Fascist planes and vehicles ran on Texaco oil of course…)

All this is very contemporary. A top Trump administration official just fulminated against the corporation known as “3M”. “3M” was sending to other countries medical equipment that the US needs now, as more than a thousand US citizens die each day from COVID. “3M”, which had promised to send this equipment to the US, when caught doing the opposite by the administration, replied that it had to think about the future, when those countries will be grateful to “3M”. The Trump cabinet member outrageously pointed out that “3M” behaved as if it had its own state department, as if “3M” were a sovereign country. This is exactly what happened after 1918 with many US corporations and plutocrats: they conducted their own foreign policy… but with Germany, encouraging fascism and remilitarization… (Not dealing with Canada in quiproquo, as “3M” is doing…)

For example Texaco fueled, with prodigious quantities of Texas oil, the Luftwaffe which transported the rogue Spanish army from Africa to Spain. That was a violation of the Neutrality Act, and the US Congress ultimately fined Texaco… $37,000 (yes, less that 40,000 dollars).

In the case of “3M”, Trump evoked the “Defense Procurement Act”, and forced “3M” to obey; something similar had happened with General Motors earlier… Foreign policy conducted by corporations led by plutocrats is exactly what happened post 1918.

That virus rampage reminiscent of the Middle Ages, was made possible by an oligarchic organization of the world which is exactly a century old. Nothing for you and research, everything for plutocrats and their exploitation schemes. Yes, we saw that before, when the Roman Republic fell into the abyss known as the empire.

The greatest, best kept secret of the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, is how much Britain, the USSR, and the US helped Hitler’s rise… so as to instrumentalize Nazism to what they perceived then as their own benefit. It turns out two of those countries were sorely mistaken. Instrumentalizing Hitler worked perfectly for the US. Big business in the United States found in  Germany, Italy, Spain and even the USSR a new frontier where anti-monopoly laws of Teddy Roosevelt didn’t apply. Thus European fascism became US plutocracy’s big friend. Before, during, and after the Second World War. The story is shocking and sobering and deserves to be widely read… For those who want to progress in understanding the subconscious which has been in command in the world in the last century. Analyzing how fascism was instrumentalized is the groundwork of the psychoanalysis of the world socio-economy. 

This instrumentalization of German fascism turned into a disaster for the UK and the USSR… This is why so much of official British history is still secret to this day.

Monstrous Mussolini and His Cruel Mistress Petacci hanging around Standard Oil. The Italian resistance wanted to make a point that the fascists should be reunited with their US sponsor, Standard Oil Of New Jersey… The heroes of the exploitation of humanity by a few are hanging from a half finished Esso-Exxon (once and future names!) station…

Without enormous international financial, economic, technological, diplomatic and energetic (Texas oil!) help, the Third Reich would have been easily disposed of… Actually, it would not have risen at all! France realized that Germany was rearming with the participation of Portugal and the USSR (where weapons were tested) and Anglo-Saxon complicity, in the 1920s… But the Anglo-Saxons barked, and France went away like a chastized dog.

And once risen, Nazism, when its mass homicidal nature became clear, was nearly crushed. By its own generals. Before 1939. Britain and the US just had to declare that they would stand by France, and the top military brass would organize a coup to save Germany. Instead the Anglo-Saxons informed Hitler his generals were plotting behind his back, not just resisting him frontally [1].

This is cogent as much of US plutocracy and its descendants are alive and well. Aon US institutions and corporations entangled with the rise of fascism in Germany, Italy and Spain: Ford, GM, Department of State, Browning, IBM, Bush, Brown Brothers Harriman, countless US financiers, J.P. Morgan, T.W. Lamont, Standard Oil, and the National City, Chase, and Manhattan banks, Kuhn, Loeb and Company, Texaco, Associated Press, the Rockefeller interests, Kodak, Koch Industries, Coca-Cola, General Electric, Carnegie, Dulles Brothers, OSS, CIA, even NASA, Harvard, etc.) Hitler had a giant portrait of his benefactor and mentor Ford even before the 1923 Nazi putsch. All this extremely deep entanglement in the Nazi machinery, even Nazi spirituality created a mood prior, during and after the war… instituting a troubling Dark Side Deep State ideology still in force to this day… All the more as the secret connection of some of the Western Anglo-Saxon establishment and elite to Nazism has stayed secret to this day. But the elite didn’t forget the lessons. 

An amusing example is that after 1918, the US requisitioned much German property (even books, ship companies, etc.) Those were then offered to US capitalists. That was pretty much illegal according to the laws of war, in several ways. The transactions should have been reverted. Fortunately the US building where the transactions had been recorded burned in 1923 (mysteriously, this has become very difficult to search on the Internet…) Thus US owners became important owners of German companies. Several Wall Street “rescue” plans, like that of  Morgenthau in the 1920s, only made Germany more of a body and soul extension of US plutocracy.

When I read Shirer’s book, “The Rise and Fall Of The Third Reich”, a few decades ago (more than once), I was not aware of that aspect of Nazism, which has come to my attention since. 

All of this has been below the radar of academic and public opinion. However as Jane Mayer’s book “Dark Money” observes, just focusing mostly on the Koch family and its associates, the Kochs, the Scaifes, the Bradleys and the DeVos family of Michigan “were among a small, rarefied group of hugely wealthy, archconservative families that for decades poured money, often with little public disclosure, into influencing how the Americans thought and voted…” Koch Senior built the third largest oil refinery of the Third Reich, among other services to Hitler.

Those methods of fabricating hearts and minds compatible with plutocracy were refined in helping Nazism rise, thrive, and fall. Yes, the greatest profit was made with fascism, when it fell… This explains why the controlling plutocracy is not keen attracting attention to it. But we are submitted to it. It would be astute to be enlightened by the notion, while rebuilding the socioeconomy, and wondering what went wrong.

[1]. Why the Brits and Americans warned Hitler, instead of going along what the top German brass was asking from them? FDR’s anti-French, let’s grab the French empire attitude, had a lot to do with it (with no doubt the same thought for Indonesian oil and gold controlled by the Dutch, and the entire British empire). Also anti-Judaism played a role. Anti-Semitic attitudes were common and socially appropriate in the US State Department after 1918, which helps to explain why the US failed so miserably to accept Jewish refugees from Germany during the 1930s… Or do anything against Nazism, while US plutocrats, themselves with their influence all over the State Department, enjoyed the Third Reich as the new Eden.
