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 auto-determination practiced in past centuries "
| David Rockefeller to Trilateral Commission in 1991 |
According to the article “Behind The Bias” (W. N. Grigg, The New American, February 10, 2003, p. 4), “Excerpts from Rockefeller’s opening address were leaked to two independent French publications. They then came to the attention of Hilaire du Berrier, an international correspondent living in Monaco, who published them in his newsletter, HduB Reports.”
According to various internet sources, the French publications were Minute, 19 June 1991, and Lectures Françaises, July/August 1991 and it was the HduB Reports of September, 1991 which republished the quote.
I haven't been able to verify any of this myself. Here are links to the periodicals, in case anybody in France wants to go to the bibliothèque. I'm not absolute sure that this Minute is the correct one.
Lectures Françaises, ISSN 0024-0133
Minute, ISSN 1243-7751
H du B Reports, OCLC 14202455 or 9031105
The quote as it appears in English must have been a translation from the French sources, since "auto-determination" would be an extremely rare word for a native English speaker. Of course, there may have been an English original translated into French, but it sounds like a satire, especially this sentence: “The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
He was notably harsh about President Carter. In 1980 he told The Washington Post that Mr. Carter had not done “what most other countries do themselves, and expect us to do — namely, to make U.S. national interests our prime international objective.” (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/20/busi ... anker.html)
He calls Rockefeller one of the “brightest Points of Light.”'

But we lost a piece of history and it makes me sad. Prior to reading about this I had no idea there were people from the Robber Baron age still living. What a fascinating life he must have led. I recently read a biography of John D. Rockefeller and am endlessly intrigued by that historical era.
And as a contrarian, I don't hate rich people because I feel like it's what I'm "supposed" to do.Elvis » Mon Mar 20, 2017 9:17 am wrote:It seems a little too "on the nose" to be genuine; that, and the fact that it can't be sourced (as far as I know), makes it suspicious to me..
