This is not a new problem but the scale is definitely of historical significance. A number of years ago a congressional investigation uncovered some facts about the manipulation of the United States government and the educational system by major philanthropic organizations. These “charitable institutions” formed a powerful and influential network that change the way Americans viewed history.
Some may not wish to call it a conspiracy but the truth is often stranger than fiction. It is often more comfortable to believe in the lie than to admit that we are living our lives based on a lie, that we have been deceived and that we are letting others deceive our children.
Norman Dodd was the chief investigator for the Reece Committee in 1953 which uncovered evidence that there had been a conspiracy to alter the way Americans view history by changing the content in text books available in schools.
Dodd had worked in the elite banking institutions in his early professional life but he had made a moral decision to not play the game.
He was hired to investigate the un-American activities of large endowment foundations who most people could only imagine as institutions of charitable benevolence.
Dodd quoted Rowan Gunthor, the President of the Ford Foundation, who stated that they operated under directives to “use our grant-making power so to alter life in the United States so it can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.”
Dr. Joseph Johnson at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace permitted Dodd to examine the fifty years of handwritten minutes to their meetings. Dodd sent a well-educated Lawyer by the name of Catherine Casey to examine the records.
Dodd realized that Johnson did not know what was in the records and he sent Catherine because she was skeptical of any wrongdoing on the part of these multi-million dollar tax-exempt philanthropic organizations.
Her mind and her life were changed as she read the minutes of 1908 which discussed war as the best way to alter the lives and thinking of the American people. In 1909, it was discussed how to involve the U.S. in a war, deciding that control of the State Department was essential.
Later, after America entered WWI a message was dispatched to President Wilson to discourage an early end to the war. This could explain Wilson’s interest in the UN (then the League of Nations), Federal Reserve and the income tax and his final statement:
- “Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above a whisper in condemnation of it.”
After the War, it was determined that the key was the alteration in the teaching of American History. Noted and respected Historians like Charles and Mary Beard were approached but they rejected the overtures of this controlling benevolent enterprise.
The Guggenheim Foundation, on the other hand, agreed to supply fellowships to handpicked historians who began to write history with a new slant and delusive perception. The books, underwritten by these altruistic organizations were quickly picked up by schools whose economic bottom line often determined the quality of the curriculum.
