    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.

    What did you love best about War Is a Racket?

    General Butler pulls no punches and tells it like it is. He has guts to tell those in the government and industry what he really thinks about war and how people profit by it. Eisenhower also warned us of the military industrial partnership and so Gen. Butler's book is condemnation of this relationship. God help us.
