John Davison Rockefeller, Sr. (July 8, 1839 – May 23, 1937) was an American industrialist and philanthropist. Rockefeller revolutionized the petroleum industry and defined the structure of modern philanthropy. Rockefeller had always believed since he was a child that his purpose in life was to make as much money as possible, and then use it wisely to improve the lot of mankind. In 1870, Rockefeller founded the Standard Oil Company and ran it until he retired in the late 1890s. He kept his stock and as gasoline grew in importance, his wealth soared and he became the world’s richest man and first US dollar billionaire. Rockefeller is often regarded as the richest person in history. Standard Oil was convicted in Federal Court of monopolistic practices and broken up in 1911. Rockefeller spent the last forty years of his life in retirement. His fortune was used to create the modern systematic approach of targeted philanthropy with foundations that had a major effect on medicine, education, and scientific research. His foundations pioneered the development of medical research, and were instrumental in the eradication of hookworm and yellow fever. He was a devout Northern Baptist and supported many church-based institutions throughout his life. Always avoiding the spotlight, Rockefeller was remembered for handing dimes to those he encountered in public. Married in 1864, Rockefeller outlived his wife Laura Celestia (“Cettie”) Spelman. The Rockefellers had four daughters and one

** I’ve written a few thoughts after reading through John Taylor Gatto’s new book, Weapons of Mass Instruction, check it out here: oldthinkernews.com ** I made this compilation of various audio and video clips featuring John Taylor Gatto in an attempt to capture what I think is the spirit behind his work. It’s easy to see how the spark of life can be squelched in the schooling system. Easily managed people make for an easy day for the elite of society. Incomplete, predictable people are the products of forced schooling. Ironically, we owe a great deal of credit for building our current society and schooling system to individuals who were dropouts. Some of these elites were John D. Rockefeller Sr.(high school dropout), Andrew Carnegie (elementary school dropout) and others. -Daniel Taylor www.oldthinkernews.com To find out more about the true purpose behind schooling, be sure to check out John Taylor Gatto’s books: Dumbing us Down, The Underground History of American Education, and his most recent, Weapons of Mass Instruction.

    @Catituie23 That’s not how it’s gonna work. Watch Zeitgeist, Federal Reserve

    Clarice Stasz – historian is looking very jewish.

    I am a skeptical person and I don’t believe in this biography.

    John D. Rockefeller in his lifetime became one of the most powerful men in the world. One of the most best kept secrets were his secret dealings with the other Illuminati families. The Payseurs and other Illuminati families are all intimately involved in the rise to power of the Rockefellers.

    The Rockefellers control education and religion etc. by their foundations.

    @Catituie23 Obvious troll is obvious?

  5. SelectedHandfull on November 8th, 2010 12:35 pm

    very poorly done biography…i don’t give a shit about his children explain not how he made money but why he made it.

  6. Catituie23 on November 8th, 2010 1:06 pm

    EVERYONE! LISTEN TO ME NOW! ALL ROCKEFELLER FAMILY MEMBERS AND THE REST OF THE 13 FAMILIES OF THE ILLUMINATI NEED TO BE HUNTED DOWN AND KILLED! THEY ARE TAKING AWAY OUR RIGHTS AND MAKING EVERYONE HAVE AN IMPLANTED CHIP THAT CONTROLS US UNDER OUR SKIN! “IF ANYONE REJECTS THE CHIP, THEY WILL SUFFER” THE ROCKEFELLER FAMILY SAYS. HUNT THEM DOWN TAKE AWAY THEIR WEALTH AND DO NOT BE AFRIAD OF THEM!

    @elmolester You conspiracy theorists are all the same. Grow up.

  8. elmolester on November 8th, 2010 2:58 pm

    @zebbedi also I never ‘sullied’ his name. I never even mentioned his name yet you run to his defense. But hey if you think Eugenicists and Mobster Banksters are some kind of heroes enjoy living with your head in the sand. A very good position to get raped from.

  9. elmolester on November 8th, 2010 3:50 pm

    @zebbedi hook line and sinker.

  10. zebbedi on November 8th, 2010 4:22 pm

    @elmolester J.D Rockefeller was a very charitable person and contributed more to this world then you ever will. Let the man rest in peace and stop sullying his name.

  11. zebbedi on November 8th, 2010 4:33 pm

    @emperorvoid Your conspiracy theories are childish. I have no doubt that the Rothschild’s and the Rockefeller’s have hidden power beyond measure but to think that the truth can be revealed from some youtube video is just naive.

    his name is very strong/classy thats part of his success if you ask me

  18. elmolester on November 8th, 2010 9:59 pm

    @emperorvoid Hehe you will notice that all the big movers and shakers get titled philanthropists by their media as part of their PR spin. There is no good philanthropist, there’s good people who donate things and help out, they don’t call themselves philanthropists though.

  19. ccolley3 on November 8th, 2010 10:00 pm

    you all know they want you to revolt right.. so they have the authority to rape you and place a bullet between your eyes… i guess you have no other choice but to revolt but seriously what can we all do? what are our options? oh yeah they have taken those away

  25. rexlv2000 on November 8th, 2010 11:42 pm

    I do know that he owned the first oil well in Saudi Arabia. And I do know that he never gave away anything! He never considered the Arabs as a charity. He knew how to dodge the tax man. The people continue to pay the price! I did meet Nelson Rockefeller one time. He smiled at me and told a lie. I don’t blame him. ha

  26. not2tees on November 9th, 2010 12:32 am

    I’m half way through Weapons of Mass Instruction right now, as I find this video. I’m starting to think that I’d like to do something experts wouldn’t be able to approve of. Just not sure yet as to what it would be. Gatto is a thinker who dares to think about things of crucial importance, a hero of freedom and equal opportunity, I’d say.

  27. MosIonTaranul on November 9th, 2010 12:55 am

    Throw your TV-set, radio, cd, computer and DVD out in the street and smash them with the axe so they will hurt no one anymore!!!

    Gatto is a teacher in the truest sense of the word. He doesn’t want to control children he wants children to be able to control themselves.

    This mans system of education should be embraced right away, but we all know what would happen in 10 years if we raised a generation of critical thinking rational children at the public school level. They would revolt and change society for the better, and this is exactly what the “elites’ don’t want.

    Respect for John Taylor Gatto, the Teacher.

    unfortunately, even if education didn’t own you, major networks have. There’s no escape. it’s the mind shackles that cannot be undone without a sufficient amount of cognition.

    This needs more views.

    This is great insight.

    I did the same thing years ago in a smiler fashion and it was the most important (BEST) Decision I ever made in my life. I applaud you and Support you in this endeavour. May it enrich you Deeply !

    Brilliant

  37. mavenMAD on November 9th, 2010 6:09 am

    Thank you for posting this; I think in the same way that the guy at the end said, while at the same time dragging myself through university for the past 3 years.
    Now is the the time to abandon education and engage in ‘self’-education/enlightenment.

  38. Tressco on November 9th, 2010 6:47 am

    HAIL, SPARTAAAHH!!!
    Wow, inspiring!!

    Excellent video!
    Still some sane human beings out there!
    Good to know!

  39. efgeesus on November 9th, 2010 7:05 am

    the man is an inspiration. read his books if you haven’t already.

    it’s more than high time to revolt against the machine and too often people forget how big of an impact each and every one of them can make to the system and how it works.

    live free.

    Best song ever starts at 3:08.
    Wonderful information. Thank you.

    I just met him about an hour ago at a free state project meeting after hearing him talk. I told him I was a high school teacher and we discussed some things concerning education. One thing he said is that schools are too integrated into society to go away, that too many people have come to depend on them. I’d like to have schools work more for people than the other way around. I’d like for more of my peers to understand and reflect on his ideas. Some are well aware of the situation.

  47. lorerax1 on November 9th, 2010 10:14 am

    you have to go against the system. stay in touch w/ freinds, talk to young children. smile at them, talk to them. Don’t be afraid to talk to older people, turn off the TV. XD I’m not intimidated by experts anymore. I think I’ll home school my kids when I get them. Hi Love.
