Interview with Norman Dodd of Reece Committee: Ford Foundation, Carnegie Foundation
How do we get the point across? Things are never as they seem to be with the surface propaganda. Our understanding of the Cold War and everything else – past and present – is just a pack of lies, a hall of mirrors.
Here is the testimony of Norman Dodd, in a 1982 interview with G. Edward Griffin. Norman Dodd investigated the educational activities of tax-exempt foundations for the 1953 U.S. House of Representatives Reece Committee Hearings. The four foundations involved are: Ford, Carnegie, Rockefeller and Guggenheim.
“…president of the Ford Foundation … asked me to call upon him at his office … ‘All of us who have had a hand in the making of policies here have had experience, either with the OSS during the war or European economic administration after the war. We’ve had experience operating under directives, and these directives emanate and did emanate from the White House. Now we still operate under just such directives … the substance of which is that we should use our grant-making power so to alter life in the United States that it can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.‘ … “
“We are now at the year 1908 [review of their records], which was the year that the Carnegie Foundation began operations. In that year, the trustees, meeting for the first time, raised a specific question, …: “Is there any means known more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an entire people?” And they conclude that no more effective means than war to that end is known to humanity.
“So then, in 1909, they raised the second question and discussed it, namely: “How do we involve the United States in a war?”
“…At that time their interest shifts over to preventing what they call a reversion of life in the United States to what it was prior to 1914 when World War I broke out. At that point they came to the conclusion that, to prevent a reversion, “we must control education in the United States.”
“…eventually they assembled assemble twenty, and they take this twenty potential teachers of American history to London, and there they’re briefed … the nucleus of the American Historical Association.”
“…The essence of the last volume is: The future of this country belongs to collectivism administered with characteristic American efficiency…”
Listen to the complete interview to get the full picture:
“…to them, Communism represents a means of developing what we call a monopoly, that is, an organization of, say, a large-scale industry into an administerable unit.”
