World War I (1914-1918)
Ninety-eight years ago, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, fighting ceased in the “war to end all wars.” People went on killing and dying right up until the pre-designated moment, impacting nothing other than our understanding of the stupidity of war.
Who are the criminal trillionaires driving humanity towards slavery, perpetual wars, materialism, trivialization of everything, and possible extinction?

That article derived its title from a quote that ought to […]
Published in 1933 by retired Marine Major General Smedley Butler, War is a Racket is a classic expose of the role of Wall Street profiteering in instigating war.
