I know it sounds incredible, but this video is an interview of Norman Dodd by Edward Griffin that everyone must listen to. The video is 52 minutes long, so pick a time when you can watch the whole thing.
Norman Dodd (June 29, 1899 – January 1987) was a banker who worked as a financial advisor and served as the chief investigator in 1953 for U.S. Congressman B. Carroll Reece Special Committee on Tax Exempt Foundations (commonly referred to as the Reece Committee). He was primarily known for his controversial investigation into tax-exempt foundations.
In this interview Norman Dodd explains that during the course of his investigations into some Tax Exempt Foundations in the early 1950s he discovered that some of these Foundations started collaborating in the early 20th Century, as early as 1908, to accomplish two objectives, both of which they achieved. The first objective was to get the United States into a war, which would enable the Foundations to gain power in running the country through the disruption caused by the war. They achieved that objective in 1914.
The second objective was to take over the school system so that American students would not any longer be taught American culture and principles, but would be taught the benefits of socialism and communism, which the leaders of these Foundations believed in. The Foundations include the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and others.
Most of us believe that these foundations are benign, philanthropic institutions because they have deep pockets and give freely to the likes of PBS and others. As it turns out this is only a PR ruse to hide their actual agenda; and in fact, this idea that they were benign was hatched by the “fathers of public relations” Edward Bernays and Ivy Lee which has worked rather well since its inception.
This is a story that needs to be circulated far and wide. It sounds unbelievable, but Norman Dodd is very credible. I implore each and every one to take the hour and listen to this interview. It will explain a lot about what happened to this country in the past 100 years, and why the education of our children has changed so radically in the past 80 years. This was pre-planned with intention.
We must be cognizant of what has taken place and take steps to reverse the damage. Much of the problem in America today is the result of our failure to teach the past three or four generations of Americans what the Founding Principles of this country are. We need to reverse that or America is doomed to go the way of Venezuela and Cuba in a generation or two.
Americans, we need to take action now and take back our schools. We have to teach “Americanism” to our children. The consequences of failing to do that are horrendous.
