War is a Racket

In War Is a Racket, Butler points to a variety of examples, mostly from World War I, where industrialists, whose operations were subsidized by public funding, were able to generate substantial profits, making money from mass human suffering.

The work is divided into five chapters:

  1. War is a racket
  2. Who makes the profits?
  3. Who pays the bills?
  4. How to smash this racket!
  5. To hell with war!

It contains this summary:

War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.

Confronting Unregulated Military Recruitment in New York City Public Schools (2007)

Confronting Unregulated Military Recruitment in New York City Public SchoolsAs the United States military intensifies its recruitment activities inside public high schools to meet wartime quotas, careful oversight of military recruitment tactics in schools is critical. The federal No Child Left Behind Law of 2001 grants the military wide access to public high schools and students’ personal information. While United States Army statistics list New York City as a top source for enlistment, the full extent of military recruitment efforts in New York City public schools remains unknown.
