    Was just wondering to see if anyone knows why, or how the rockeffellers embraced the "New World Order" if you want to call it that.
    I originally held negative views of them due to reading about their involvement in forced sterilisation programmes in Bangladesh and India for population control in "People Quake" by Fred Pearce.
    But now I'm currently reading "Rockefeller medicine man" in which lists upon lists of philanthropic ventures conducted by the foundation drastically improved the education and health system in the early 20th century, with a care for the ordinary person being highly regarded by them.
    Of course the sterilisation programmes only happened later. My question is, what happened?

    What do you mean what happened?

    As in, why the shift from philanthropy, to all of a sudden acts of population control. Seems a bit conflicting.
