War is a Racket
Author:  Smedley D. Butler             Category:  History   

  Butler once gave the contents of this book as a speech, from his experiences as a Major General of the U. S. Marine Corps. Butler speaks to the role of war in our society, as a way of extracting wealth by force. He also addresses the corruption inherent in using war to stimulate the economy. He firmly states that our military should not be used to support private gain by corporations.
