    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.

    D. K. Parshall says: "He Got It Right"
    "Just another anti-war rant"

    What did you like best about War Is a Racket? What did you like least?

    It's a wonderful sentiment but we've heard it before. It's interesting that precisely nothing has changed since the book was written after World War I.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    More specifics from the author's career.
