"We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings
and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had
been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world
government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced
in past centuries."
David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, in an address to a meeting of The Trilateral Commission, in June, 1991
Let's address this quote since you have identified a "source."
First let me say that I, too, have been guilty of not doing due diligence sometimes in making sure that quotes I have seen are accurate. I think this
is a common "weakness" that many people fall into, especially when quotes get reposted all over the internet without any responsible journalism
(i.e. people checking that sources are true and accurate). This is why I have a problem with many of the conspiracy sites...they all tend to use each
other as "sources" and regurgitate the same trash which few (if anyone) checks for accuracy. Expounding on this problem, sometimes their
"sources" are correct but when the source gets discredited, few post or include the clarified, corrected, or propounding views.
So now, back to your quote... This particular quote has been disputed, including when and to whom it was allegedly given. (Source -
) The source I just included has some rather interesting quotes which can be corroborated. Interesting
is the "interview" with one Benjamin Fulford - conspiracy theorist extraordinaire. I encourage everyone to watch Mr. Fulford's interviews with
David Rockefeller on YouTube. Mr. Fulford exhibits a behavior that I see ALL THE TIME here on ATS... He makes lots of assumptions and puts his own
"spin" on things that Rockefeller actually says to make them more sinister and nefarious than they are. Why does he do this? Because the answers
he gets from Rockefeller don't fit his pre-conceived conspiracy agenda, so he "spins" it to make it fit.
So what does Rockefeller ACTUALLY say?
I don't recall that I have said — and I don't think that I really feel — that we need a world government. We need governments of the
world that work together and collaborate. But, I can't imagine that there would be any likelihood — or even that it would be desirable — to have
a single government elected by the people of the world.

So who is the REAL David Rockefeller? Well, that's easy...he is a product of his upbringing...no more, no less.
John D. Rockefeller, Jr. was the only son of John D. Rockefeller, the founder of Standard Oil. "Junior," as he was known, is the father of David
Junior quickly absorbed the strict discipline and frugal lifestyle inculcated by his parents. "My mother and father raised but one question: Is
it right, is it duty?" he would recall years later. "I took responsibility early, and, like my parents, I was serious."
Junior passed these ideals down to his children -
Concerned about the corrupting influence of wealth on his family, Junior was a very severe father. He insisted that the children keep ledgers to
account for their allowances and that they only spend a third of the money earned by performing numerous chores (the other two thirds were to be
donated and saved).
In 1896, Junior entered the Standard Oil offices at 26 Broadway. "I feel but little confidence in my ability to fill the position which is before
me," he wrote in a letter to his mother, "but know that I am not afraid to work or do whatever is required of me, and with God's help I will do my
best." Junior endeavored to find a role for himself in his father's empire, but soon grew disenchanted with the business and the controversies that
had erupted around it in the early 1900s. In 1910, at the age of 36, he decided to cut all ties with the Standard Oil trust (except for two of its
companies) and devote himself to philanthropy.
