THE GRAND DECEPTION - By G. Edward Griffin - "COLLECTIVISM" VS. "INDIVIDUALISM" - READ AND LEARN!!!
A friend sent me this link, and I realize that someone else has likely posted this here already (possibly more than once, so sorry for posting it again if so); however, I strongly recommend anyone that hasn't already read this, to do so (two or three times).

The following is by far one of the most comprehensive, detailed, and easy to understand descriptions of WHY we are where we are today, and the history behind the Collectivist/Socialist movement that has so thoroughly permeated our American society for so many years (from politics to religion to education).

In short, we can't combat this cancer until we know from where it originated....

The Grand Deception
A Second Look at the War on Terrorism

G. Edward Griffin


Ladies and Gentlemen, the title of my presentation today is The Grand Deception - A Second Look at the War on Terrorism.


I was flattered to hear in my introduction that I have a reputation for taking complex subjects and making them easy to understand. I hope I can live up to that expectation, but I couldnít help wondering if I can really do that with this topic: The War on Terrorism. How can you make that easy to understand? Itís such a huge and confusing topic. I feel like the proverbial mosquito in a nudist camp. I know what I have to do. I just donít know where to begin.


There is a formula I often follow when I donít know where to begin, and that is to start with history. If you discover the history, you should be able to figure it out as you go along. It was Will Durant who said, "Those who know nothing about history are doomed forever to repeat it."


Are we doomed to repeat the mistakes of history in the war on terrorism? If we continue to follow the path we are now taking, Iím afraid that we are. But to find out whether we are repeating the mistakes of history, we need to go back in time. So, I invite you to join me in my time machine. We are going to splash around in history for a while and look at some great events and huge mistakes to see if there are parallels, any lessons to be learned for today. I must warn you that it will seem we are lost in time. We are going to go here and there, and then jump back further, and then forward in time, and we will be examining issues that may make you wonder "What on earth has this to do with today." But I can assure you, when we reach the end of our journey, you will see that everything we cover has a direct relevance to today and, in particular, to the war on terrorism.


THE HIDDEN AGENDA OF TAX-EXEMPT FOUNDATIONS


Lets start our time machine. We turn the dial to the year 1954 and, suddenly, we find ourselves in the plush offices of the Ford Foundation in New York. We see two men seated at a large, Mahogany desk, and they are talking. They cannot see or hear us. These men are Roland Gaither, who was the President of the Ford Foundation at that time, and Mr. Norman Dodd. Mr. Dodd was the newly appointed chief investigator of what was called the Congressional Committee to Investigate Tax Exempt Foundations. The Ford Foundation was one of them, so he was there as part of his Congressional responsibilities.


It was about 1972 that I happened to meet Mr. Dodd in Virginia. I had a television crew with me, because we were producing a documentary film and had some open time. I called Mr. Dodd and asked if he would be willing to make a statement before our cameras, and he said, "Of course." Iím glad we obtained the interview, because he was advanced in years, and it wasnít long afterward that he passed away. We were very fortunate to capture his story in his own words. (For those who are interested in viewing his complete testimony on video, it is available from The Reality Zone, www.realityzone,com. Itís called "The Hidden Agenda" and is available in both video and audio formats. The printed transcript can found here.

So, back to our time machine. The year is 1954, and we hear Mr. Gaither say to Mr. Dodd, "Would you be interested in knowing what we do here at the Ford Foundation?" And, of course, Mr. Dodd says, "Yes! Thatís exactly why Iím here. I would be very interested, sir." Then, without any prodding at all, Gaither says, "Mr. Dodd, we operate in response to directives, the substance of which is that we shall use our grant making power to alter life in the United States so that it can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union."


Dodd almost falls off of his chair when he hears that. Then he says to Gaither, "Well, sir, you can do anything you please with your grant making powers, but donít you think you have an obligation to make a disclosure to the American people? You enjoy tax exemption, which is an indirect way of saying you are subsidized by the taxpayer, so, why donít you tell the Congress and the American people what you just told me?" And Gaither replies, "We would never dream of doing such a thing."

See the rest at the above link. It is a long read, but well worth it.

First time I've read him, but definitely one of the better summations of the "agenda" and its roots I think I've ever seen.

Hope more folks read this...

THIS .... along with SO many OTHER important reasons is WHY

we need to elect Congressman RON PAUL President of the United States

of America!



IF the FREEDOM of the INDIVIDUAL is not adequately protected...

IF our CURRENCY is not sound and strong...

IF we allow an OLIGARCHY to rule us, creating a CORPORATE- FASCIST STATE

rather than the CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC that our forefathers fought

and died to provide for us...


Then a UNTED SOCIALIST STATES OF AMERICA ( USSA ) could be the result!


RON PAUL FOR PRE
