How to Undermine a Nation
How to Undermine a Nation

Some interesting videos which offer an explanation for the path much of Western education has taken.  This in turn has influenced our culture. The interview is between Norman Dodd and G. Edward Griffin in 1982. A transcript  is available here. It states the interview is with:

Mr. Norman Dodd who, in the year 1954, was the staff director of the Congressional Special Committee to investigate tax-exempt foundations — sometimes referred to as the Reece committee, in recognition of its chairman, Congressman Carroll Reece. I conducted the interview we are about to hear, in 1982. I had no immediate use for the material at that time, but I realized that Mr. Dodd’s story was of great importance.

As chief investigator for the U.S. Congressional Special Committee on Tax Exempt Foundations he discovered that several prominent tax exempt foundations including the Rockefeller, Carnegie and Guggenheim colluded to:

Influence American educational institutions and to control foreign policy agencies of the Federal government. The purpose of the control has been to condition Americans to accept the creation of world government. That government is to be based on the principle of collectivism, which is another way of saying socialism; and, it is to be ruled from behind the scenes by those same interests which control the tax-exempt foundations.

The videos are available:

I’d be skeptical, but it fits in with comment from 1930:

If you will read the interesting testimony before the Senate Committee about the middle of January that showed up all these pacifists and peace-makers as German sympathizers, Socialists, and Bolsheviks, you will see that a majority of the college professors in the United States are teaching socialism and Bolshevism and that fifty-two college professors were on so-called peace committees in 1914. President Eliot of Harvard is teaching Bolshevism. The worst Bolshevists in the United States are not only college professors, of whom President Wilson is one, but capitalists and the wives of capitalists and neither seem to know what they are talking about. William Boyce Thompson is teaching Bolshevism and he may yet convert Lamont of J.P. Morgan & Company. Vanderlip is a Bolshevist, so is Charles R. Crane. Many women are joining the movement and neither they, nor their husbands, know what it is, or what it leads to. Henry Ford is another and so are most of those one hundred historians Wilson took abroad with him in the foolish idea that history can teach youth proper demarcations of races, peoples, and nations geographically.(See Footnote 3)

Anthony Sutton makes some other interesting points in these videos:

He claims that US State Department aided the Bolshevik (Red Army) forces against the White Russian during the Russian Civil War. Apparently the French and British gave up saying the Americans are helping the Bolsheviks. At the 7.30 minute mark in part 1 he cites a New York Times report of the local Commissar addressing the US army and thanking them for aiding the revolution.

It also accords with my understanding of the likes of Ford’s early  support for the National Socialists. Although I still think the national socialists were basically a bunch of looters. They looted segments of their own society to bribe voters. They then looted their neighboring countries.  It’s an example of what happens when psychopaths gain control of a powerful centralized state. The inevitability of nasty people on occasion rising to power ought to stop people from removing checks on the power of the centralised State. But alas, the wisdom behind many of our constitutions has been forgotten. Again, possibly not by accident. Such an outcome would fit with the Dodd testimony and also videos by:

I do not know if Yuri’s claimed connection with the Soviets is true, but it is a brilliant description of reality. I’d be surprised if you do not listen to it all and then some of the other ones by him on youtube. It explains much about the climate and other “culture” wars. Of course, the technique works because it also plays to human cognitive failings.

Much of what many people believe beggars belief. Seemingly intelligent and well educated people can believe the utmost drivel. Some of my cherished views are no doubt wrong. They certainly have been in the past, when this becomes clear I will change my views. Would that our socialist elites were similarly willing to change their views when reality proves them wrong. But no. Socialism seems to have a special appeal. In one form or another it always returns to haunt us. If it is discredited under the name socialism or communism, it re-emerges as the third way. When that too is discredited it reappears as being green. Once that goes it will no doubt adopt a new name.  I guess like sick individuals, sick ideologies will always be with us.

The comments by Dodd on the subversion of charitable trusts when they change their purpose after the handover to trustees is spot on. It is also something for the Cato institute to consider, as well as the likes of the CIS, IPA and Quadrant in Australia.
