1. kr. Almost every great fortune in America was built on slavery, theft from the Indians, war

 

profiteering and government contracts, & drugs.

Nearly without exception you will find one or more of those things somewhere in the mix.

The Bush ancestors, for example:

1. stole land from the indians
2. slave-grown cotton:brokering & shipping, textiles
3. government contracts (multiple)
4. war profiteering/trading with the enemy (multiple)
5. possible slave trading (historical record unclear)
6. drugs & slave labor through the prescott bush connection to IG Farben
