New book on the Koch brothers
See this article. Their father was "a staunch anti-communist [...] sympathetic to the fascist regimes ruling Germany, Italy and Japan." He hoped the US would be more like them because in his social Darwinism he detested those takers who fed from the government trough. Charles grew up to also have an "ultra-libertarian business philosophy" that "regularly ignored environmental regulations on principle, believing them to be a hallmark of Big Brother government." Seems brother David is a spoiled brat along for the ride, enjoying expensive parties with lots of hot babes. And these guys have bought our current government.
