In 1954 the Reece Committee, chaired by Carroll B. Reece, produced its findings regarding the influence of tax-exempt foundations in the field of education.* The report also briefly mentions their influence in politics, propaganda, social sciences and international affairs. The Rockefeller Foundation, Ford Foundation, Carnegie Foundation and others were discussed during the Committee hearings.

The Reece Committee was smeared by the media and by John D. Rockefeller the 3rd himself as being wholly inaccurate, but historical hindsight gives us a perspective that shows what the Committee found is far closer to the truth than Rockefeller would have you believe.

A predominant theme found in the Committee’s findings is the desire of the foundations and those behind them to create a system of world governance. The use of propaganda and social engineering was identified as a means to and end to achieve this goal. In 1932, the president of the Rockefeller Foundation, Max Mason, stated that “The social sciences… will concern themselves with the rationalization of social control…”

The Committee cited
a report from the President’s Commission on Higher Education,
published in 1947, which outlines the goals of social engineering
programs; The realization on part of the people of the necessity of world government
"…psychologically, socially and… politically". The
cited report states,

"In speed of
transportation and communication and in economic
interdependence, the nations of the globe are already one world;
the task is to secure recognition and acceptance of this
oneness in the thinking of the people, as that the concept of
one world may be realized psychologically, socially and in good
time politically

It is this task
in particular that challenges our scholars and teachers to lead
the way toward a new way of thinking. There is an urgent need
for a program for world citizenship that can be made a part of
every person’s general education.

It will take
social science and social engineering to solve the problems of
human relations. Our people must learn to respect the need for
special knowledge and technical training in this field
as they
have come to defer to the expert in physics, chemistry,
medicine, and other sciences." [emphasis added] (p. 483)

Rene A. Wormser, author of
the book

Their Power and Influence
served as counsel for the Committee. Wormser discussed the
investigation of the social sciences on part of the foundations –
such as the Rockefeller and Carnegie foundations – and the influence
that they wield.

"Mr. WORMSER. Professor, back
to this term "social engineering," again, is there not a certain
presumption, or presumptuousness, on the part of social
scientists, to consider themselves a group of the elite who are
solely capable and should be given the sole opportunity to guide
us in our social development? They exclude by inference, I
suppose, religious leaders and what you might call humanistic
leaders. They combine the tendency toward the self-generated
social engineering concept with a high concentration of power in
that interlocking arrangement of foundations and agencies, and
it seems to me you might have something rather dangerous.
[emphasis added] (p. 579)

The Committee lists the various
organizations who were involved with the Rockefeller Foundation’s
investigation of the social sciences. Also identified were other
organizations such as the Council on Foreign Relations, which have been
instrumental in crafting globalist policy.

"When the Rockefeller Foundation
turned to the social sciences and the humanities as the means to
advance the "well-being" of humanity, the section entitled "Social
Sciences" in the annual report was set up under the following
headings, which remained unchanged until 1935:

General Social Science Projects : Cooperative Undertakings.
Research in Fundamental Disciplines.
Interracial and International Studies.
Current Social Studies.
Research in the Field of Public Administration.
Fundamental Research and Promotion of Certain Types of Organization.
Fellowships in the Social Sciences.

The report states that the arrangement was for the purpose of
"simplification and in order to emphasize the purpose for which
appropriations have been made."

In the decade 1929-38 the foundation’s grants to social-science
projects amounted to $31 .4 millions and grants were made to such
agencies as the Brookings Institution, the Social Science Research
Council, the National Research Council, the Foreign Policy
Association, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Institute of
Pacific Relations in this country as well as a dozen or more in
other countries, and the Fiscal Committee of the League of Nations."
(p. 879)

A campaign to smear the Reece
Committee began shortly after it was released. John D. Rockefeller the 3rd himself
responded to the findings of the Committee, flatly denying that the
Rockefeller foundation or any of the organizations that it has given money
to has ever advocated world government. Rockefeller states,

"If the expression "one-world
theories of government" means anything, it means world government.
No shred of evidence is presented in the report to show that the
Rockefeller Foundation or any of the organizations to which it has
made grants has advocated world government." (p. 1104)

With the advantage of historical
hindsight, this claim from Rockefeller is easily debunked. In reality,
the Rockefeller family has – from a very early date – promoted globalism
and world government, which today is almost a reality. The following are
a few examples of Rockefeller influence over the past several decades.
Programs of social engineering designed to acclimate the people to
globalist policy and goals, combined with pushes for global governance
have been pushed on the American people for almost 100 years.

The Interchurch World Movement

An early project of the Rockefeller
family was the Interchurch World Movement, started in 1919. John D.
Rockefeller Jr., the son of John D. Rockefeller the 3rd, founded the IWM.
Charles E. Harvey, professor of history at California State University,
wrote a history of the Interchurch World Movement in a 1982 paper titled
"John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and the Interchurch World Movement of
1919-1920: A Different Angle on the Ecumenical Movement.
goal was to consolidate the churches into a single organization that
would control the direction of the churches as a whole. The IWM, in
Rockefeller’s own words had a globalist slant. He writes,

"I do not think we can
overestimate the importance of this Movement. As I see it, it is
capable of having a much more far-reaching influence than the League
of Nations in bringing about peace, contentment, goodwill and
prosperity among the people of the earth."

A revealing letter written by
Rockefeller himself showed that he saw a potential for ensured
"stability" by gaining control over the churches.

"I know of no better insurance for
a businessman for the safety of his investments, the prosperity of
the country and the future stability of our government than this
movement affords…" [1]

The Federal Council of Churches

A later organization, the Federal
Council of Churches, also highlights Rockefeller’s investment in world
government promoting organizations.

Not surprisingly, the Federal Council
of Churches – which was merged with the National Council of Churches in
1950 – received significant funding from John D. Rockefeller Jr. [1] Using a
similar corporate structure of churches that the Interchurch World
Movement first pioneered, the program developed several agendas for
churches to adopt, with world government named as the ultimate goal. As
reported by Time magazine in 1942,
