The Business Army


Gerald MacGuire, the apparent driving force behind the business plot — an attempt to destroy democracy in the United States  — was simply a lowly bond salesman . He was used to doing others’ bidding.

He, in turn, was employed by seasoned capitalist Grayson M. P. Murphy. Murphy in turn was heavily involved with the American Legion — a veterans’ group involved in right wing activities. (It’s important to note here that veterans groups in Germany and Italy were pivotal in the rise of reaction and fascism.)

Grayson met with Murphy. For Murphy had a plan. But he needed to be sure that his agent was controllable and ruthless.
