They also started a suit against SumOfUs for starting a petition. As far as I'm aware that's still ongoing.

Hopefully that'll get thrown out too.

I don't know, people stating opinions in public, anybody would think we live in some kind of democracy... Wink

they were part of ig farben for a while before the banksters had to split them out again cos of the bad publicity attached to that trade name

[/url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IG_Farben]part of the story[url]

a rather interesting bit of the story is the extremely lenient war crimes sentences for ig farben senior management.iirc 4 yrs was the longest and that was a cushy jail and they did know exactly what some of their products were for and exactly the conditions of the slave labour that they relied upon
ps the bankers and the american subsidiaries had to pretend a clean break after pearl harbour but old friends etc etc [/url]

pps iirc it was a spooky british (scottish n posh ?)chap from the economic warfare section in new york that tried to get the yanks to seize the usa based ig farben assets and split them from Rockefeller as early as 1940

here he is

he had a small but important part in the temporary rift between the uber rich of the globalised business types and the reich but the bis smoothed things over in 1945/6 so it was back to business as usual.

ps there is more data about this chap but i cant find it at the mo.
