A newly published book says the father of American billionaires Charles and David Koch helped to build an oil refinery in Germany that was approved by Adolf Hitler himself. “Dark Money” is a historical account of the Koch family fortune and its influence, among others, written by Jane Mayer. In it, the author illustrates the path of modern conservative activism as supported by a small group of rich donors. She digs back as far as the Koch family’s ties to the radical right-wing John Birch Society to show how rich conservatives built a foundation for anti-government (and often anti-environment and anti-people) strategies under the guise of philanthropy.
