Who would take on the mega-money of the foundations and trusts of the Rockefellers, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, the Guggenheims, et. al.? Someone interested for good reason in authentic America, might.
As for intent investigators willing to take on the powerful, before the fictitious Fox Mulder, there was the true Norman Dodd. You will do well to listen to him, from the beginning of this video to his final two sentences. He is interviewed here, by G. Edward Griffin in 1982. (For some reason, a promotion of George W. Bush is tacked onto its final minutes. Whatever is your opinion of W., one trusts it will not distract you from Mr. Dodd.)
Video posted 6/11/2008, “Norman Dodd on Tax Exempt Foundations.”
You will not find a breakdown of this video here, but there will be more about Mr. Dodd and his doings in future articles. The veracity in this seems readily apparent. Also, the sincerity of the aged investigator. More verification is in order, but this man was front and center to recorded, albeit often well scrubbed history. The attempts at erasing the trails of evidence with which he worked are themselves, corroborative. But Mr. Dodd’s essential opus yet remains; you may wish to read it with us: “The Dodd Report to the Reece Committee on Foundations,” from 1954.
Paradox and Questions
It would make sense that some of the American tycoons of the turn of the last century were easy marks, led into temptation to seek world empire by the perverse allures of acquisition and control. It makes for quite an odd “sense” that they would choose what seems such an extremely perverse alliance, with Communists, to do it. And it is astounding, but then confirming to see so many of today’s tycoons following this same path.
The long range planning involved is something else to ponder. It takes ideological, even sacrificial devotion, to strive for goals that will not occur in one’s one lifetime. Just how planned out has this been, by these meticulous manipulators and controllers? Just what core beliefs and motivations did they share? How closely did they conspire? What would cause these hoarders of wealth and power to share so much?
Dodd emphasizes that beyond the tycoons, it has been the trustees of their foundations who have sometimes twisted, or taken their original intents to extremes. These extremes have not diverged, but converged, to support global empire through collectivism. To which foundations did he refer, when he said this? The truth is out there, about so many.
Easy money attracts, but just how was it, religiously zealous, global Marxists (or those who would exploit them) have so successfully become the ones to seize upon these capitalists’ mega-foundations? It would seem a virtual guild of skills would be required to teach this, yet it began to occur well before the likes of the KGB. Before the Russian Revolution, this was America!
I for one have heard that Henry Ford also harbored some odd, collectivist politics; that calls for further research — also, Andrew Carnegie’s personal history, worldview, and belief. The same with J.P. Morgan. And it seems clear the Rockefellers have been ideologically corrupt, as a family. Did that start with the old man, John D. himself? Before that?
Perhaps Russian subversion was involved by the time, as Norman Dodd describes, this conspiracy reached the 1930’s, but that would hardly seem necessary. Distasteful as it is, the more one learns about the American seedbed of “progressivism” and what that actually entails, the more one finds, the answers rest in our nation’s own history. Before that, a significant strand of this malignancy reaches back in space and time to the Germany of the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries — and long before that, apparently the Tower of Babel, then to Eden and the snake.
So now, did you listen to Norman Dodd? Or, let me know if you need a transcript.
Quiz: what were those last two sentences of his?
