Corporate Powers Behind the EU: first via the NAZIS next with the help of CIA

1. Hitler was a Tool for Big Business/IG Farben's Policy Plan for Great German Europe. Evidence: I. G. Farben directors were convicted as main culprits at Nuremberg. But as it happens they only received small sentences and was released after a few years.

2. Goebbels & Göring declared exactly same Europe policies as EU implements today 

3. US Presidents & CIA implemented the same IG Farben/'Nazi' Plan After WWII 

4. Research Question: I. G. Farben (cartels) seems to have grown ever since, buying Monsanto in 2016 


1. Hitler was not Der Führer but rather the servant of I. G. Farben. They made the Policy Plans: Nuremberg Pharma Tribunal Conviction

"The Nuremberg Pharma Tribunal of 1947/48 records document that WWII was planned and prepared in Frankfurt, Germany, headquarters of IG Farben."
"The author [J. E. Dubois] was chief prosecutor at the trial and documents the evidence presented in this book (..). He charges I.G. Farben with being knowingly an active arm of the Wehrmacht in taking over property and enslaving the people of Europe..."

The Devil's Chemists. 24 Conspirators Of International Farben Cartel Who Manufacture Wars, 1952, by Nuremberg prosecutor, Josiah E. DuBois. "Fascinating and frightening narrative of corporate involvement in the horrors of World War II. This includes american involvement and support of United States' declared enemies." 

The Nuremberg Tribunal consisted of a series of 13 trials, the first one against the “main war criminals” entitled “The USA, France, UK and USSR v. Hermann Goering et al.” This trial took place between 1945 and 1946 and ended with long prison sentences or the death penalty for most of the perpetrators. Interestingly, it was this first trial against the political and military figureheads of the Nazi regime that has been generally portrayed as “The Nuremberg Tribunal.” This is historically inaccurate. Moreover, it has deflected attention away from the real “war criminals” who, with their economic power, had financed the rise of the Nazis and the preparation for WWII."

"[The Nuremberg Prosecutor:] I also conclude that Farben was largely responsible.’ As regards slaves, in one camp alone Farben used over 300.000, 200.00 of whom died. From 1941 to 1943 100.000 Farben workers went to the gas chambers. The maximum sentence imposed on any director was eight years, the average three. () most of them (now) back in power”.

2. Laughland Book: The Tainted Source, The Undemocratic Origins of the European Idea [Amazon reviews for now]

Joseph Goebbels: "I am convinced that, in fifty years' time, people will no longer think in terms of countries." (1940; p. 9). Goebbels even used the metaphor of "breaking down borders" which is so central to the modern European ideology. He also advanced the argument which one hears frequently from German pro-Europeans today that the history of German unification was a model for that of Europe. Like many other Nazis and their supporters, he assumed that political entities should correspond to supposed economic "spaces", and that Europe's division into nation-states was thus analogous to, and as nonsensical as, Germany's division into micro-states after the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648. (..) In 1940, Hermann Goering stated that the new European economic order must include fixed exchange rates between the currencies of other countries and the Reichsmark, the abolition of customs barriers in Europe, etc. In addition, ambassador Ritter called for a future "continental economy." (p. 24). 

(Nowadays, German hegemony over Europe is rationalized through slogans such as, "Germany is the economic powerhouse of Europe". (..) The author supports his contentions with an extensive set of specific, documented positions enunciated by German Nazi and Italian Fascist leaders. For this reason, these evidences are much too extensive to be dismissed as propaganda or posturing. The Roots of German Hegemony over Europe: German thinking is animated by the fact that Germany had been united as an EMPIRE and not a nation-state. (p. 138). For this reason, she held an instinctive distaste for sovereign city-states, and thought in terms of some kind of German Empire, whether it was the outcome of military or non-military acts. Germany wanted to assume a world role (WELTPOLITIK), primarily through economics, and that is why she wanted, and still wants to, dismantle Europe's political structures and replace them with economic ones (p. 139). German control over Europe, primarily through economics, was also behind the 1914 MITTELEUROPA plan. (p. 69, 99-on). In addition, the prominent German industrialist, Walther Rathenau, thought in terms of a larger Central European trading space. (p. 101). Russia, for her part, always liked pan-European institutions because their international and bureaucratic flavor is congenial to Russia's. In addition, the pan-European hostility to free nationhood coincided with that of imperial powers such as Russia. (p. 281). Laughland rejects the attempts to de-legitimize sovereign nation-states through the argument that sovereign nations go back only to the French Revolution or 19th century. They go back to antiquity. (p. 150). (..)
ARGUMENT: SOVEREIGN NATIONS CAUSE NATIONALISM, WHICH CAUSES WARS. Although Nazism is best remembered for the aggression of WWII, it also advanced the view that German rule over Europe would cause a PAX GERMANICA - an end to wars between European nations. For instance, Hitler and Mussolini issued a 1941 communique that stated, "The destruction of the Bolshevik danger and of plutocratic exploitation will create the possibility for a peaceful, harmonious and fruitful co-operation between all the peoples of the European continent, in the political as in the economic and cultural domains." (p. 16) Amazon Reviewer, Jan Peczkis
"Laughland also notes that, "It was in reaction to the Versailles settlement that the science (or pseudo-science) of geopolitics underwent significant development in the inter-war years, especially in Germany... The geopoliticians, indeed, ascribed precisely to the Reich the role of the bearer and realizer of European unity." (p. 107, 111)." Another Amazon Review
Publisher: "An ideology is sweeping Europe and the world which threatens democracy and the rule of law. The post-national ideology, which posits that nation-states are no longer capable of running their own affairs in a modern, interdependent economy, confuses the constitution of a state with the power of its government, and ignores the importance of the sense of community essential to any democratic debate. A rigorous synthesis of historical and philosophical arguments, THE TAINTED SOURCE (1998, John Laughland), is a powerful appeal in favour of the constitutional foundations of the liberal order. Post-national structures - multinational companies, 'region-states' and supranational organisations such as the European Union - are corrosive of liberal values, to such an extent that John Laughland makes it devastatingly clear that the post-national ideology formed a crucial core of Nazi economic and political thinking. Like the European ideology of today, it was predicted on dissolving the nation-state and the liberal order." Little Brown  
NB.(Homo Sociologicus): beware of Laughland's argumentation on 'gold standard'. MMT Modern Monetary Theory explains that a gold standard would put severe limits on if not destroy our economies today. HS MMT Page 

The European Parliament on Laughland'sThe Tainted Source  [Remember: 'don't trust anything until it has been officially denied']

The book examines the intellectual origins of the European project, and finds similarities with fascist ideas, notably geopolitics, and Nazi economic policies. For example, German industrialists held a conference on a 'European economic community' in 1942. Laughland links Schuman, Monnet, Spaak and Delors to fascist organisations, but makes clear that he does not suggest that the European idea was inspired by fascist ideology. He finds further historical antecedents in the German customs union and subsequent unification of Germany in the 19th century, and as far back as the Holy Roman Empire.

Laughland opposes the European Union because it undermines the nation state, which he considers as the essential foundation for liberty and democracy. He argues that the EU subordinates democracy and national sovereignty to corporatist economic objectives. He is wary of the power of central banks, and advocates a return of the gold standard. Laughland extends his criticism to international organisations like NATO, OSCE and the Council of Europe, which he chides for promoting antinationalism." Tainted source, 1. ed., 1997, J.

3. CIA's Powerful Role in the Creation of The EU - after WWll

NB. 1. HS is critical about much in TheTelegraph's pieces below. But Evans-Pritchard's account has interesting information on the US/CIA's role building the EU after WWII (I have not yest read the book in question, Jean Monnet, by Eric Roussel). 
NB. 2. Why doesn't Evans-Pritchard mention Laughland's book? Why is he saying that a book about Monnet, US and the CIA etc. is the most important one? Is he deliberately suppressing the most critical information that the EU plan was actually Germany's I. G. Farben's project, which the Nazis worked to realize? This way (the corporate media) The Telegraph succeeds in diverting attention away from the corporate interests in the EU in general, while suppressing both the corporate power relations' historical and current interests in the EU superbly hiding the most important dirty truths about the corporate power relations' responsibility for WWII and for the build up of EU after the war. Also, notice that the CIA is explicitly whitewashed ('nothing particularly wicked') and remember that for people with sympathy for the US, learning that several US presidents worked to make the EU a reality also involving the CIA, is no doubt of little consequence if not simply applauded.  
"Brexiteers should have been prepared for the shattering intervention of the US. The European Union always was an American project. It was Washington that drove European integration in the late 1940s, and funded it covertly under the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations. While irritated at times, the US has relied on the EU ever since as the anchor to American regioal interests alongside NATO. There has never been a divide-and-rule strategy. (..) General Charles de Gaulle thought him [Jean Monnet] an American agent, as indeed he was in a loose sense. Eric Roussel's biography of Monnet reveals how he worked hand in glove with successive administrations. It is odd that this magisterial 1000-page study [Jean Monnet, 1996, Eric Roussel] has never been translated into English since it is the best work ever written about the origins of the EU. Nor are many aware of declassified documents from the State Department archives showing that US intelligence funded the European movement secretly for decades, and worked aggressively behind the scenes to push Britain into the project. (..) The key CIA front was the American Committee for a United Europe (ACUE), chaired by Donovan. Another document shows that it provided 53.5 per cent of the European movement's funds in 1958. The board included Walter Bedell Smith and Allen Dulles, CIA directors in the Fifties, and a caste of ex-OSS officials who moved in and out of the CIA. Papers show that it treated some of the EU's 'founding fathers' as hired hands, and actively prevented them finding alternative funding that would have broken reliance on Washington. 
There is nothing particularly wicked about this [HS: Sic!]. The US acted astutely in the context of the Cold War. The political reconstruction of Europe was a roaring success. There were horrible misjudgments along the way, of course. A memo dated June 11, 1965, instructs the vice-president of the European Community to pursue monetary union by stealth, suppressing debate until the "adoption of such proposals would become virtually inescapable". (..) What [these papers] show is that the American 'deep state' was in up to its neck." [HS cannot recommend much of the NOT quoted content in the article. There is propaganda for Obama and lies about his family, suppressing this: 'Obama and His Family Tied to CIA; and more lies] The European Union always was a CIA project, as Brexiteers discover, 2016, The Telegraph
"DECLASSIFIED American government documents show that the US intelligence community ran a campaign in the Fifties and Sixties to build momentum for a united Europe. It funded and directed the European federalist movement. The documents confirm suspicions voiced at the time that America was working aggressively behind the scenes to push Britain into a European state. One memorandum, dated July 26, 1950, gives instructions for a campaign to promote a fully fledged European parliament. It is signed by Gen William J Donovan, head of the American wartime Office of Strategic Services, precursor of the CIA. (..) The leaders of the European Movement - Retinger, the visionary Robert Schuman and the former Belgian prime minister Paul-Henri Spaak - were all treated as hired hands by their American sponsors. The US role was handled as a covert operation. ACUE's funding came from the Ford and Rockefeller foundations as well as business groups with close ties to the US government. (..) It recommends suppressing debate until the point at which "adoption of such proposals would become virtually inescapable"." Euro-federalists financed by US spy chiefs, 2000, Amrose,The Telegraph
"The Schuman Declaration was presented by French foreign minister Robert Schuman on 9 May 1950. It proposed the creation of a European Coal and Steel Community, whose members would pool coal and steel production. (...) [HS: EU here evaluates its own propaganda:] "It was thought – correctly – that merging of economic interests would help raise standards of living and be the first step towards a more united Europe. Membership of the ECSC was open to other countries. 
Key quotes
  • World peace cannot be safeguarded without the making of creative efforts proportionate to the dangers which threaten it."
  • "Europe will not be made all at once, or according to a single plan. It will be built through concrete achievements which first create a de facto solidarity."
  • The pooling of coal and steel production... will change the destinies of those regions which have long been devoted to the manufacture of munitions of war, of which they have been the most constant victims." 

4. Research Question: is I. G. more Powerful today than ever? 

IG Farben/Bayer/Monsanto is not to thought of as 'a thing'. It is a company or more companies, which we should expect to be owned by many people from different nations. The same people that also own shares in other big business firms etc.
It seems that the exact same corporate power structure, which controlled the Nazi's 'foreign policy' and led to WWII never lost any of its power but only grew stronger, so that it controls US/Western 'foreign policy' even more today. In this important video Corbett compares the then and now, and explains how Western corporations paid for Hitler's way to power in 1933. Also about today's US 'Government Sachs' and German I. G Farben convicted for being responsible for the Nazis' foreign policy'. See clip from the Nuremberg Trial, Corbett's video here, Corbett's 'Meet the Corporatocracy' (full and clip videos).
Europe does not say what it does; it does not do what it says. It says what it does not do; it does what it doesn't say. Europe is an optical illusion.
Pierre Bourdieu
I am convinced that, in fifty years' time, people will no longer think in terms of countries.

The War on Yugoslavia

Travesty: The Trial of Slobodan Milosevic and the Corruption of International Justice, 2007, John Laughland: "Study this story. Our future depends on a vigilant and informed people. The truth is hard to find, but in John Laughland we are fortunate to have a man blessed with the three qualities for which Anatole France wrote, in The Revolt of the Angels, that Lucifer was banished from Heaven: 'liberty, curiosity and doubt'' -- (Who is) Ramsey Clark 
"Professor Ola Tunander, from the Peace Research Institute in Oslo, claims he was told by several sources that, after the investigation, NATO concluded that the Bosnian Army forces controlled by Alija Izetbegović are responsible for shelling of Sarajevo’s Markale Market. But this incident was misused to legitimize NATO intervention in 1995 against Serbian side in Bosnian war." HS Yugoslavia
"NAZI Germany committed genocide in Yugoslavia 1944-45. NATO, Germany with US & Europe committed genocide in Yugoslavia (on Serbs) in the 1990ties, only this time ALL Western politicians, media and academics deliberately lied about the Serbs committing genocide."  HS Yugoslavia
"It Began With a Lie: German TV report refutes government propaganda in Balkan War, March 2001, by Dietmar Henning: ""In the TV report, the authors juxtapose step by step the results of their own meticulous research to the statements made at the time by Federal Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, Minister of Defence Rudolf Scharping (both SPD) and Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer (Greens). (..) ... the strength of the report is that it unequivocally shows how the German government, which includes the Green party that was once at the fore of the pacifist movement in Germany, pushed through the first combat deployment of German troops since the demise of the Nazi regime. To achieve this aim, the government employed a propaganda apparatus that has also not seen its like since 1945. (..) NATO spokesman Jamie Shea, who is featured repeatedly in the report, was and is fully aware of the role of propaganda in whipping up support for the war. “The political leaders played the decisive role with regard to public opinion,” said Shea with a self-satisfied grin."
