My Reply to a TIME world article on Ezra Pound

"That is, until one remembers that Pound was an admirer of Benito Mussolini, a defender of Adolf Hitler and, that while living in Italy during World War II, he broadcast a series of anti-Semitic radio addresses calling for American neutrality."

Hi, excuse me, Pound did not defend Adolf Hitler, and his admiration for Mussolini was, for the most part, based on his financial strategy. A few large American banks however helped to Bankroll the Nazi war Machine, chemicals and ammunition houses. Pound despised this, and remains one of the clearest critics of Ponzi schemes and the military industrial complex. See his epic CANTOS. Look at it, read him.

There was a lot of other information in his radio broadcasts, besides the antagonism, yes, he called for American neutrality, NO WAR. And, he prescribed we keep a very careful and watchful eye on the bankers, or Usurers as Pound would define them.

Please, do some research besides parroting the cliche' statements about Pound. The above paragraph reinforces the wrongheadedness and simple mindedness at the root of most fascist ideology.

Have you ever read any Pound yourself, Stephan?,8599,2105702,00.html?xid=gonewsedit
