For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as “internationalists” and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.

    The Gandalf quote IS in the book. It follows Gandal’s “There are other forces at work in this world besides the will of evil” laying out the war between the churches of which there are only two. The conversation occurs when they are bound in the darkness, not knowing which way to go. Interesting how the ring (seeker of control and power) can only be undone by the fire that forged it. The ring sought ultimate iniquity, enslavement, binding in darkness. (Stolen loyalty of the seed)… the one ring is unseen as controller of the other rings by the wraiths who unknowingly subject themselves to the one. The wraiths have no memory of who they had been when they were given power over things they didn’t understand. They didn’t refuse the rings as did Gandalf and Galadriel, thus choosing wrongly what to do with the time they were given. Frodo’s time requires him to be the hero…as it does for all.
