Thanks for pointing that out.
Just to be clear, I didn’t take it for granted or take the time to source some saying that several somebodies said he said, and was simply transcribing Passio’s impressive presentation.
After Elvis’s comment above, I briefly searched for the source for that statement; and saw at least two different passages where the oligarch was widely quoted for something he couldn’t be sourced for saying...

The transcript from a 1991 Bilderberg group meeting in Baden, Germany, was released, proving how deluded Rockefeller’s views truly were. Bill Clinton also attended this meeting, I’m sure along with many other members of the elite class. Rockefeller stated:We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. 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 world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march toward 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.
No source. I don’t why, or where it originated, but seriously doubt that David said it. So, why did so many spread it around?
As for the example Passio cited, somebody had taken the first sentence of that UN speech, then firmly affixed an inflammatory fantasy, fixing the finish to wickedly twist the believable bait for distribution - spread like a flu by dozens of assumed to be trustworthy sites…
According to sources, David did say (possibly sarcastically) in a book:
“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
Nevertheless (imo), you’re tossing the beer with the backwash here; because even considering Passio’s hyperbole, he still explains some pertinent stuff, and the simple fact that those unsourced quotes spread so extensively at so many sites surely says something of the pestilent nature of present day electric propaganda.

The Net: The Unabomber, LSD and the internet
John Brockman: All these people were experimenting with media. They were dealing with technological stuff. Nobody was talking about Cybernetics at the time, but they were all reading McLuhan. Rauschenberg told me about McLuhan, suggested I read it, and Cage handed me a copy of Cybernetics by Norbert Wiener and said, “This is something for you”, because I was extremely interested in notions of feedback and non-linearity.
I got a call from A.K. Solomon, who was head of bio-physics at Harvard; and he had read about the Expanded Cinema Festival and said, “You know, we have all these scientists up here at Harvard-MIT, and a group of us would like to invite a group of artists to spend a couple of days in a seminar to talk about mutual interests.
So, I was invited to put this together, which I did; and then they took us to see the computer: There was a room, and everybody there was wearing light coats, and they were cold and we were cold, watching the computer, and these cards, file cards, and I just stood there like kid with my nose pressed against the window, and it was so exciting, and I had no idea why!
J.Z. Young, an Oxford biologist, (who wrote) Doubt and Certainty in Science, said, “We create tools and then mold ourselves to the use of them.”; and I read that in 1964, and something went off. Suddenly, I realized that Reality isn’t this thing in front of us on the proceeding (?) stage It’s a movable feast! We are creating technologies, then we are the technologies!! It’s not your heart is like a pump, but your heart is a pump! It’s not your brain is like a computer, it’s your brain is a computer… until the next thing comes along. Now, you’re a neural net, or now you’re an information system.
The circles widen. There was Heinz von Foerster, who was the Dean of the World’s Cyberneticists, there was Gregory Bateson, Stuart Brand. Almost all these people were authors, as I was. I’d read all their books. No one in New York had a clue that there was something happening; that there was a consciousness, or a mindset that had evolved, and you could connect all these all these people. You could connect this and this… you know, there are ways to put it together…
I was dragooned into becoming an agent because I had a business background, and they said, ‘Why don’t you just go back and look after our interests. It’ll take you an hour a day”; and I thought it’d be a good way to pick up some money while I wrote books, and I found out very quickly that I was sitting on an oil well, and I couldn’t control it, and that was 30 years ago.
Narrator (transcribed @ 57 minutes): The aim of these secret meetings, later known as the “Macy Conferences” and sporadically attended by CIA representatives, is to develop a science that makes it possible to predict and control human behavior.
This is a weapon that America desperately needs in the cold war, on the new battlefield of the subconscious. The “Macy Group” therefore registers particular interest in the 1950 study “The Authoritarian Personality”, released by the International Institute of Social Research, a new foundation of the Frankfort Institute of Social Research, centered around Max Horkheimer and Theodor W. Adorno.
The study, then the most comprehensive social profile of a society, the USA, aimed to give a scientific explanation for religious and racial prejudice. Thousand of interviews led to huge collection of data, which are analyzed by the most up-to-date computers with the aim of answering one particular question: How does authoritarian behavior as a mass phenomenon develop?
The authors see the explanation in man’s “authoritarian matrix” which offers the key to the psychology of fascism and totalitarian systems. This matrix is shaped through education and tradition, and is apparently indissolubly linked to the metaphysical notion of “ supernaturally created nature”.
How could a tendency toward fascism and racism, especially against Jews, be tracked and explained? To this end, sociologists created, among other things, a scale to measure fascist potential, the so-called “F-scale”.
In addition, previously concealed personality tendencies are to be tracked, using the latest psychological processes; for example, tests conceived by the American psychologist Henry A. Murray, one of the fathers of today’s assessment centers.
In order to permanently obstruct fascism and anti-semitism, it seems necessary to alter the nature of man and his underlying cultural patterns so that the authoritarian matrix would be eradicated forever.
How is it possible, ruling out some bloody operation, to penetrate deep into a person’s consciousness with the aim of changing it?
First, according to Gestalt psychologist Kurt Lewin, a member of the Macy Group, the old values and balances must be destroyed, in order to makes conditions “fluid”. Then it is possible to establish new balances and values. These, then, must be permanently fixed by means of self regulation… re-education will then develop into self-re-education. This would transform the world into a post-national, multi-ethnic global society with no fixed borders.
The Macy Group believes it can offer the tools and blueprints for this new world order: New and faster computers, system theory and model cybernetic worlds, with which it appears possible to control and direct all scientific, cultural and political spheres.
This also promises the programming of “new people”, “anti-authoritarian people”, made to measure.
