last episode of the Krupp series! thought I'd drop it early to enjoy before Thanksgiving if anyone's driving anywhere
Alfried and his empire.
the vibes here, lol
Arndt von Bohlen und Halbach
vastly the most sympathetic Krupp in at least 100 years, though again not -that- sympathetic
Berthold Beitz, a top Krupp executive who figures prominently in the final chapter
Beitz and Adenauer sniping at each other
here's McCloy back again to help Krupp self-destruct?
what did Beitz and RFK talk about?
Khrushchev's relationship with Krupp was quite chummy
why did the Eastern bloc (through Krupp) essentially receive a quarter of West German long-term investment credit while only buying 4% of their exports?
if you want to hear Alfried's long list of personal defeats and final fate, listen to the episode lmao
the final fate of Krupp - assimilated by Thyssen
yes, it was a joke, no I'm not sponsored by Otis elevators
to finish, I'd like to introduce my Programmed to Chill Matrix of Business Success
here's how Krupp ranks on the Programmed to Chill Matrix of Business Success - it's not a great score, folks!
thanks for listening! more good stuff to come

today's a cool interview with @ebeggin1 where we talk about Nazi Maoism, which sounds made up, but unfortunately wasn't
Franco Freda, more or less the inventor of Nazi Maoism ImageImage
he was heavily influenced by Julius Evola, as were all of these guys Image

second to last Krupp episode, and terminally online types ought to love it, because it's exploring postwar Germans framing themselves as a nation oppressed by international imperialism and working with Third World nations to do business, lol
Vera Hossenfeldt, the con artist who got Alfried to marry her, lol
Konrad Adenauer, chancellor of West Germany

finally listening to that Kanye interview on Drink Champs. it's very fascinating
he's talking about people being programmed, and about him getting taken out
Kanye says that Bone Thugs-n-Harmony was approached by the feds to make negative music that would make black people get sent to prison
