the sense of 1930's German dissent

As Chase is on the verge of buying J.P. Morgan and becoming the world's richest bank, it might be timely to explore a bit of the history behind that slogan. </p><p>Chase Bank actively supported the most viciously racist regime in world history, Nazi Germany's Third Reich. Unlike many other banks which also have done business with murderous regimes, Chase's involvement was much more thathan just a business arrangement. Morgan Bank has a similar history of closely working with Hitler and advocating Nazism both before and throughout WWII. </p><p><b>Chase Bank, it's owners, the Rockefeller family and the family's other main business-Standard Oil (now known as Exxon)</b>-were an integral part of Hitler's war effort. Rockefeller, Standard Oil and Chase Bank helped put Hitler in power, helped him build the world's deadliest army, supplied him with oil throughout the war and after the war helped the Nazi elite to smuggle billions of dollars stolen from Holocaust victims and Nazi-occupied countries out of Germany and into Swiss and Latin American banks. </p><p><img src=" http://www.melbourne.indymedia.org/local/webcast/uploads/metafiles/logocomp.gif" width="38" height="117" align="right">The powerhouse of Germany's war industry was <b><i>I.G. Farben</i></b> the chemical company that patented and manufactured Zyklon-B the nerve gas used in Auschwitz. The relationship of I.G. Farben to Auschwitz went much deeper than Zyklon-B. </p><p><i><b>Auschwitz was built by I.G. Farben</b></i> as a slave labor camp that manufactured rubber and other materials for the Nazi war effort and &quot;recycled&quot;gold fillings, human hair and other substances derived from those worked to death or killed in the gas chambers. At the end of WWII I.G. Farben was transformed into BASF, Bayer and Hoescht. </p><p><i><b>Rockefeller/Standard Oil was the largest stockholder in I.G. Farben</b></i> and I.G. Farben was-next to Rockefeller-the largest shareholder in Standard Oil. </p><hr width="95%" noshade color="#cc0000"><p><font size="-2"><img src=" http://www.melbourne.indymedia.org/local/webcast/uploads/metafiles/fordlogo.gif" width="108" height="43" align="right"></font>On December 20, 1922 the New York Times reported<font size="-2">4</font> that automobile manufacturer <a href=",%2Bnazis&hl=en&ie=UTF-8" target="_blank">Henry Ford was financing Adolph Hitler's</a> nationalist and anti-Semitic movements in Munich.
