Antony Cyril Sutton (February 14, 1925 - June 17, 2002) was a British born economist, historian and writer. He was an economics professor at California State University Los Angeles and studied at the universities of London, Goettingen and California and received his D.Sc. degree from University of Southampton, England. He was a research fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution from 1968 to 1973. During his time at the Hoover Institute he wrote the major study Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development, detailing how the West played a major role in developing Soviet Union from its very beginnings up until the present time (1970). He was forced out of the Hoover Institute after publishing National Suicide: Military Aid to the Soviet Union in 1973. CIA Director Glenn Campbell threatened Sutton saying, "you will not survive," pertaining to academia.

Sutton's next 3 major published books detailed Wall Street's involvement in the rise of the Bolshevik Revolution, Adolf Hitler and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He then set his work towards exposing secret societies, namely the Trilateral Commission and the Skull & Crossbones (The Brotherhood of Death). Sutton considered his book America's Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull & Bones to be his most important work.

His work on the formation of the major socialist movements in the early 20th century are largely ignored by mainstream historians, but are certainly well known in the academic community. Professor Richard Pipes of Harvard noted: "In his three-volume detailed account of Soviet Purchases of Western Equipment and Technology ..." Sutton comes to conclusions that are uncomfortable for many businessmen and economists. For this reason his work tends to be either dismissed out of hand as 'extreme' or, more often, simply ignored."

The co-founder of the Trilateral Commission and national security advisor to Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote: "For impressive evidence of Western participation in the early phase of Soviet economic growth, see Antony C. Sutton's Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development: 1917-1930, which argues that 'Soviet economic development for 1917-1930 was essentially dependent on Western technological aid' (p.283), and that 'at least 95 per cent of the industrial structure received this assistance.' (p. 348)."

In a 2000 interview Sutton was asked about his success. "Judge a man by his enemies," Sutton explains, "William Buckley called me a "jerk". Glenn Campbell, former Director of the Hoover Institution, Stanford called me "a problem".

The Fukushima and Chernobyl nuclear disasters are quite different from a technological point of view as there are considerable differences between the causes of the catastrophes in each case and, furthermore, the equipment at the two devastated nuclear power plants is different, says independent journalist James Corbett who is in Osaka right now.

What also divides the cases is that in the Soviet Union, after it became evident that information about the catastrophe in Chernobyl could not be hidden under a rug, the information about the liquidation of the aftermath of the disaster was absolutely open to the international community. The situation in Fukushima is the opposite: the Japanese authorities censor the information about what exactly is going on at the devastated nuclear facility and share it with only a limited number of organizations.

"The [Japanese] government has proven that it is not interested in giving free and open access to the [Fukushima] site or the information coming out of there," he said, adding that briefings on the situation "are only open to a selected group of Japanese media organizations -- and foreign media and independent journalists are being excluded from those meetings."


This post is dedicated to retired Hartford, Connecticut, Narcotics Detective Richard Murzin. Rich loved history and to understand the real world. Rich was allegedly to release a host of materials linking the FBI, Connecticut State Police, Connecticut Administrative Services, US Homeland Security, Connecticut State Police Intelligence, Connecticut Department of Children and Families DCF, Hartford PD, to organized crime figures and those smuggling heroin and cocaine into the US and Connecticut cities. Rich was to work with AJ Fontaine. Rich tells me about AJ dying of the flu here in [ this post ]. I went to call Rich back about AJ's death, and found out Rich had just died of a heart attack. Both died of natural causes, and each death can be explained. Each was waiting until after the judicial abuse cases against family members were over in Connecticut courts to lessen the retaliation against them for Rich's and AJ's free speech pursuits. I find it strange that the two people with whom I had agreed to work with to release materials died suddenly within 2 weeks of each other.
