I am. You are. We are more, together. Let's succeed together, for one another. It's for our own sake. - Atlas Egbe

I spent 33 years in the Marines. Most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism.


War is a racket. 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.


My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military.

    I don’t like war. I don’t agree with war. But that military funding is allowing my dad to keep his job.
