Author Anton Chaitkin joins us today to discuss his book Who We Are: America’s Fight for Universal Progress, from Franklin to Kennedy, Volume 1. He will connect the dots between the rise of industrialization and America and how these variables continue to shape the nation today.
Anton Chaitkin is the son of Jacob Chaitkin, a lawyer who blocked some of Wall Street’s sponsorship of the Hitler regime. Anton grew up committed to justice, with a strong sense of the realities of power politics.
About two years after the JFK assassination, Chaitkin heard from Lyndon LaRouche that financiers were shifting American strategy away from industrial progress, toward cheap labor, foreshadowing fascist policies and systemic collapse. An association was formed, to defeat those who had brutalized contemporary thought in science, economics, the arts, and philosophy.
In a systematic inquiry into American history, Chaitkin found that the thinking of our former leaders was far more profound and more pro-human than anything available in the post-JFK era.
Chaitkin is the leading historian of the two sides: those who fight for progress for America and other sovereign nations, versus the Anglo-American imperialists.
