  6. Grannie, what lesson are we to draw from this quiz? What are the implications of Rockefeller’s biographical sketch? Please explain! 🙂

     
    • I don’t know if there’s actually a lesson, precisely. It’s more of a psychological profile of a man with great power — creating foundations that influenced American and world history in ways that changed us forever. He was instrumental in the creating of:

      1. The Rockefeller Foundation
      2. Setting up the Federal Reserve Bank
      3. The Council on Foreign Relations
      4. The United Nations

      If he had been raised as a normal little boy instead of a faux- girl, I wonder how the world might be different today?
