New Ron Paul Book: The School Revolution - Now Shipping!

The School Revolution: A New Answer for Our Broken Education System

Twelve-term Texas Congressman, Presidential candidate, and #1 New York Times bestselling author Ron Paul returns with a highly provocative treatise about how we need to fundamentally change the way we think about America's broken education system in order to fix it.

Whether or not you have children, you know that education is vital to the prosperity and future of our society. Yet our current system simply doesn't work. Parents feel increasingly powerless, and nearly half of Americans give our schools a grade of "C". Now, in his new book, Ron Paul attacks the problem head-on and provides a focused solution that centers on strong support for home schooling and the application of free market principles to the American education system. Examining the history of education in this country, Dr. Paul identifies where we've gone wrong, what we can do about it, and how we can change the way we think about education in order to provide a brighter future for Americans.

I ordered it, looking forward to checking it out. I spoke with Tom Woods at the Freedom on Tour/GOP Iowa Event for a little while post event, and he was pretty psyched about this book. Willing to give RP a shot :)

Title: Wall Street And The Bolshevik Revolution

By Antony C. Sutton

PREFACE

Since the early 1920s, numerous pamphlets and articles, even a few books, have sought to forge a link between "international bankers" and "Bolshevik revolutionaries." Rarely have these attempts been supported by hard evidence, and never have such attempts been argued within the framework of a scientific methodology. Indeed, some of the "evidence" used in these efforts has been fraudulent, some has been irrelevant, much cannot be checked.

Examination of the topic by academic writers has been studiously avoided; probably because the hypothesis offends the neat dichotomy of capitalists versus Communists (and everyone knows, of course, that these are bitter enemies). Moreover, because a great deal that has been written borders on the absurd, a sound academic reputation could easily be wrecked on the shoals of ridicule. Reason enough to avoid the topic.

Fortunately, the State Department Decimal File, particularly the 861.00 section, contains extensive documentation on the hypothesized link. When the evidence in these official papers is merged with nonofficial evidence from biographies, personal papers, and conventional histories, a truly fascinating story emerges.

We find there was a link between some New York international bankers and many revolutionaries, including Bolsheviks. These banking gentlemen — who are here identified — had a financial stake in, and were rooting for, the success of the Bolshevik Revolution.

Who, why — and for how much — is the story in this book.

Antony C. Sutton
March 1974

Dr. Antony Sutton (of Stanford University's Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace) was a major source for None Dare Call It Conspiracy.

His three volume history Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development was cited as a source many times.

He also wrote America's Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull & Bones

Here's an interesting page with links to more of his work:

Another classic for the Libertarians here,

as well as for those who are NOT (as well as those who are not librarians).

This book was mentioned by Pawnstorm-12, in his post about Greenspan.

Ayn Rand: Capitalism, the Unknown Ideal

BTW - Pawnstorm told me, but he may not have told you, what a Pawnstorm is. From Wikipedia:

A pawn storm is a chess tactic in which several pawns are moved in rapid succession toward the opponent's defenses.[2] A pawn storm usually involves adjacent pawns on one side of the board—the queenside (a, b, and c files) or the kingside (f, g, and h files).

Privatize

End the socialistic school system - privatize, enabling competition. Government, i.e, force, is inferior to the free market.

Excellent!
