THE CAPITALISTS DEMAND A SOCIALISM OF DOLLARS, THEY TO OWN THEM − IN OTHER WORDS, A MONEY TRUST, AND THEREFORE THEY ARE OPPOSED TO THE PEOPLE BECOMING SOCIALISTS IN THEIR OWN RIGHT. … Let us understand this clearly. The capitalists all denounce the existence of socialistic tendencies of whatever kind, if they are held by the majority of the people. But they are socialists themselves as their absolute control of concentrated capital will show. … Yes, that is socialism operated in the interests of the selected few. Socialism for them means their absolute control of the material products resulting from the toil of the people, − the right to charge for the use of this material and to make of us industrial slaves.”
Charles August Lindbergh, Sr., Congressman and Member of the House Banking and Currency Committee, Banking and Currency and The Money Trust

“The post−World War II Kilgore Committee of the United States Senate heard detailed evidence from government officials to the effect that,
… when the Nazis came to power in 1933, they found that long strides had been made since 1918 in preparing Germany for war from an economic and industrial point of view.
This build−up for European war both before and after 1933 was in great part due to Wall Street financial assistance in the 1920s to create the German cartel system, and to technical assistance from well−known American firms. …
The contribution made by American capitalism to German war preparations before 1940 can only be described as phenomenal. It was certainly crucial to German military capabilities.
