Ok, I think most people on this board are familiar with the David Rockefeller quote taken from his "Memoirs" book where he says:
"For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my
encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic
institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me
as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one
world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."
I showed this quote to a friend of mine, and he thinks he has basically "shot down" my theory that David Rockefeller admitted to being involved with
the plans for a one-world government. Here is what my friend said, please let me know what you think about it:
"That quote only furthers the weakness of your argument. Clearly he means that he is guilty of being an “internationalist,” and advocates
liberalism in the European since of the word with respect to economies. He’s basically defending the concept of globalization. Why do you think he
refers to his opponents as extremists? Duh, because he isn’t referring to world domination, nor dominating American institutions when he says he’s
“guilty,” he’s simply defending his families pursuit of a more cooperative world through increased economic and political ties. You ever heard
of the UN, World Bank, or IMF? Even our enemies are part if the UN. You can get the same quote in the NY Times, Journal, or any mainstream op-ed page
every day from someone said to be prominent.
He’s saying he’s the opposite of an ideologue, and that his agenda has merit."
