An excellent book on Koch, through its publication (2016), is Jane Mayer’s #DarkMoney.
He started out corrupting universities across the country, something they are still doing.
Koch and his network also corrupt political campaigns, and, thanks to their b. boy, Pence, much of the original Cabinet came from Network connections
Koch’s crazy - Ann Rand Wild West crazy - believing that America should go back what it was in the 1820’s. Or even before – little or no Federal govt, so really 50 different states.
He and they are the money behind the 28th Amendment movements. It is just a coincidence that no government is the best for an oil company.
ALEC is their organization righting ‘model laws’ for the 50 states. For the benefit of corporate polluters, privatizing schools, freeing banks to fail, anti-union, voter suppression – oh, the ‘the right to life”.
“The man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself…” 2 Thessalonians. Are you so certain there is no Antichrist? #
