9/11 needs to be seen within the context of a continuing theme in history. Namely that war is just a business for those who profit from the death industry: namely the international bankers, dynastic families scattered throughout the world, and the people they employ.

Writing about this topic was Anthony Sutton. A British-born economist, historian, and writer, Sutton studied at the universities of London, Goettingen and California and received his D.Sc. degree from University of Southampton, England.

While working as a research fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution from 1968 to 1973 he wrote the major study Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development (in three volumes), detailing how the West played a major role in developing the Soviet Union from its very beginnings up until the present time (1970). He was forced out of the Hoover Institute after publishing National Suicide: Military Aid to the Soviet Union in 1973.

Sutton’s next three major published books Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler and Wall Street and FDR detailed Wall Street’s involvement in the Russian Revolution as well as its decisive contributions to the rise of Adolf Hitler and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. His books became classics in the study of covert politics and economics in the twentieth century. In Sutton’s own words he was “persecuted but never prosecuted” for his research and subsequent publication of his findings.

In the early 1980s, Sutton used publicly available information on Skull and Bones membership (such information is available, among other places, in Yale yearbooks) to speculate about political and economic relationships underlying significant historical events and about what he regarded as the purposes of these relationships. He published these conclusions as America’s Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull and Bones— which, according to Sutton, was his most important work.
