Watch Congressional Investigator Norman Dodd interviewed on YT.
The female attorney he tasked with investigating the tax exempt foundations in the US, the Rockefeller Foundation and Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (ha ha ha!) had a complete nervous breakdown and ‘lost her mind’ as a result of what she discovered in the records of these organisations. They were more than happy to open their records to a Congressional Investigation – they know they are so powerful, nothing can stop them and few people know about them, and many of those refuse to be the facts!
Here’s the link:
Margaret Mead? Social anthropology? Let’s be honest, it’s just sophistry, clever sounding language – I suspect most people would suggest it doesn’t make any sense or have any real meaning…lots of academic theory is like this.
Pedagogic (teaching) theory is just like this. It becomes a study of itself, the terminology used is unique and exclusive, theories & ideas about theories & ideas, ad infinitum..!
TAP – I found Margaret Mead’s book Competition and Cooperation Amongst Primitive Peoples a lot more than that. It was based on observation of peoples before the modern world arrived, and has lessons of what people are fundamentally like without the imposition of modern day TV/Hollywood/corporate culture. Based on that and my own experiences in the Philippines living away from the City in the 1980s, before mobile phones, electricity and TV arrived, I designed a cultural model for businesses to use, which I wrote up in an academic paper and is still on MBA reading lists to this day. ‘Entrepreneurship in a growth culture’, published by Long range Planning, Elsevier Science. April 1997. I don’t have the copyright sadly!
