Red Symphony Teaches

About 1929 Crash, Great Depression & Now

By Wayne Jett © September 11, 2017

     C. G. Rakovsky and J. Landowsky speak from their graves to teach far more about world affairs involving Russia and the U. S. than Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s heavily staffed investigation is likely to uncover. Rakovsky’s words were spoken in 1938 under penalty of death within the confines of Lubianka Prison in Moscow. Landowsky recorded the interrogation, transcribed it, and acted courageously to provide us the opportunity to learn from what Rakovsky disclosed.

                                                                                   Rakovsky and Landowsky

     Rakovsky had risen in the Stalin government of the Soviet Union to the high post of ambassador to France. In 1938, he was arrested in a purge of suspected supporters of Leon Trotsky’s attempted coup against Stalin. Rakovsky was given a show trial, found guilty, sentenced to death, then questioned by Stalin’s secret police (NKVD) in Lubianka beneath NKVD headquarters.

     Landowsky was a Russianized Pole and a talented physician knowledgeable in use of drugs for enhancing truth-telling in such questioning. He had no desire to be involved in such matters, but was made responsible for choosing and administering drugs to Rakovsky capable of improving his ability to think clearly and to speak truthfully. Landowsky was ordered to record the interrogation and to transcribe it, making two copies – one for Stalin and one for the NKVD. Landowsky made a third copy of the transcript, which was found on his body by a Spanish volunteer in Petrograd during World War II.

                                                            The Nature and Actions of “Them”

     Rakovsky testified that he was, as suspected, an operative in a secret organization which undertakes to control the actions and policies of every nation worldwide. He said he personally assisted transfer of funds from “Them”(those who empower and control the secret organization) through a Swedish bank into Czarist Russia to assist the “October revolution” of 1917 in which the Bolsheviks seized power.

     Rakovsky related other such insights about “Them,” including the following:

1. “They” accomplished “organized defeats” of Russian forces in World War I sufficient to inspire overthrow of the Czar by parliamentary officials led by Alexander Kerensky, who conspired with “Them” to hand over power to Trotsky-led Bolsheviks.

2. New York financiers “are revolutionaries … objectively and subjectively, quite consciously … and these people, the bankers, have the impulse towards full power … such power as Stalin has in the USSR but world-wide … absolute power.”

3. October 24, 1929, the first day of the Great Crash, was the beginning of the “real revolution” and more important than the seizure of power by the Bolsheviks in October, 1917.

4. Hitler produced prosperity in Germany by issuing currency directly from government. “They” saw this as “hidden danger … very serious…” in its implications for their control of other nations.

5. Hoover’s term as U. S. president was used to prepare for seizing power in the U. S. by “financial revolution” and in the USSR (replacing Stalin with Trotsky) through war and defeat.

     In item 2, Rakovsky disclosed that the secret group he called “They” or “Them” is comprised, in essence, of New York financiers.

     Items 3 and 5 about the Great Crash of 1929 and Hoover’s presidential term are historically significant evidence of the cause of the Crash and the Great Depression. Rakovsky, this self-described operative of “Them,” testified under penalty of death that the Crash and Great Depression were planned, orchestrated acts of “real revolution.”
This is easily recognized as corroboration from the other side of the world that the Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression were, indeed, orchestrated events done with premeditation and malice.

                                                                                        Hitler, FDR and “Them”

     Rakovsky said much more of great significance to Stalin, including insights about Hitler and about Roosevelt and their relations with “Them.” For example, Rakovsky told Stalin in his 1938 interrogation that Germany would invade the Soviet Union to defeat Stalin and hand power to Trotsky, and he suggested counter-measures against the invasion. In 1939, Germany and the Soviet Union signed a non-aggression treaty, which Hitler blew aside by invading in 1941.

     As to FDR’s relationship and role with “Them,” Rakovsky’s testimony is at least equally revealing. From an admitted high operative of the ruling elite on the other side of the world, at a contemporary time when the Great Depression was at its worst, we have an explicit description of the Roosevelts’ true roles in creating and extending the Great Depression.

                                                                             Dealing With It

     You will find this, plus clear descriptions of FDR’s malicious economic actions and his express admissions, in The Fruits of Graft – Great Depressions Then and Now. With the book, the challenges of understanding and recalling these significant corrections of American history, and passing them along to future generations, are not  so difficult.
