Corporate Coup in the U.S.

Scene from the 2003 documentary, The Corporation, about an attempted coup by industrialists (corporations) to overthrow president Franklin D. Roosevelt and the US Government during the 1930's.

Major General of the Marine Corps, Smedley Butler, was to lead the coup. Smedley, tired of being what he felt was a gangster for capitalism, balked and reported his findings to Congress.

NOTE: Smedley Butler is author of "War is a Racket"
