I have posted a link to the Big Oil documentary, as I think it forms The Corbett Report's view of the world's most important problems and its fundamental view of the world.

I saw "oil" and though energy... then though of all the other stuff in it.

The beauty of these 2 docus is they also deserve to be reposted in /s/Collusion, /s/conspiracy, /s/CorporateMedia, /s/Crime, /s/DecentralizeAllThings, /s/DepopulationWatch, /s/Documentaries, /s/economics, /s/Energy, /s/Intelligence, /s/Justice_v_Injustice, /s/OpenScience_Scientism, /s/overpopulation, /s/PoliticalAnalysis, /s/PsyOps, /s/RulingClass, /s/USIsrael, /s/VaccineSkepticism, /s/Voting_IsARiggedJoke - among countless others.

Hi, could you ask James to add a better citation for the quote, 'well, that's the problem, isn't it?'. He cites The Green Capitalists, which cites 'The Rockefellers, An American Dynasty', which is a hard book to find online for free, and I doubt people would be willing to pay, learn piracy, or make an archive.org account to view it (one needs an archive.org account in order to read the book).

Would you also mind asking him to provide a citation for the 1934 letter JDR3 supposedly sent?

I've uploaded to Archive.org so I'm guessing I have an account. Where would you rather it be re-posted?

I don't think you can upload to archive.org without an account, except for the web archive, so I guess you're right.

As for where it should be re-posted, I'm not too sure. I did produce a video of me verifying the claim for myself. Perhaps he can cite that? I assume he found the book online for himself, so he can make a video of that. If he actually has the book himself, he could make a video of him pointing to the quote in the book, and cite that instead.

Hopefully he and/or his minions read this sub.

With regards to where it should be re-posted, perhaps you have an idea? If you verified this quote yourself, you should have been able to find the book online for free. I doubt you were willing to pay or make an archive.org account to do so. Perhaps you can post where you put this?

You're guessing you have an archive.org account? An archive.org account requires a username and a password. If you can fill those in and login successfully, you have an account. If you cannot, you don't have an account. I don't really see how you can 'guess' whether or not you have an account.

I don't know what else you're meaning for me to do. I don't know what quote, what book, and why it has to be for free.

I said I can post it on Archive.org if you share the book with me that you don't want to post yourself for some reason.

This thread is about the quote 'Well, that's the problem, isn't it?' that the Why Big Oil documentary claims was said by John Rockefeller III. That's the quote I'm talking about. The book this thread is about is 'The Rockefellers, An American Dynasty'. That's the book I'm talking about.

The book is already available on archive.org, but you have to have an account to borrow it, and to download it you must also download some other software. You don't have to post it on archive.org. It's already there.

It has to be for free because most people would be unwilling to pay to verify a quote. If this documentary is for waking people up, people shouldn't have to pay or go through a very long process to fact-check one quote. If a normal unaware person were to go through this documentary, only to end up in that situation, they would most likely be unwilling to go through so many obstacles or pay, and give up on it. So by having the current situation, I believe it restricts the documentary's power to reach people and wake them up.

Oh. I didn't know about the "borrowing" software. That's new and weird and disappointing to me.

Here's an idea:
Draft up a The Rockefellers, An American Dynasty post for /s/books requesting free/share/available versions online, and maybe ask for a review or whatev, as well as your personal reasons for wanting it, or at least what you care to share. The fastest way to let me know it share the link to your post in the chat #home - and I'll go vote it up and talk it up in chat too. Maybe we can draw enough attention to it that we crowdsource you a solution to your dilemma.

For those of you stuck on fact-checking the first quote of Why Big Oil Conquered the World ('Well, that's the problem, isn't it?'), I've got the proof here. I believe I establish the fact that 'The Rockefellers, An American Dynasty' does report exactly what 'The Green Capitalists' states is says (although a bit later on, on a page between 290-299 rather than 289), and that they were indeed given access to the Rockefeller Archives via a mainstream source, The New York Times (which is important, because conspiracy sites can make up whatever they want, whereas mainstream sources often accurately report on what people actually say, at least in my experience), and indeed told the truth.

Why am I uploading this? The book is hard to find online for free, and I am not too sure if people would be willing to pay to fact check one quote, or make an archive.org account to fact check one quote, or join thepiratebay. (I, myself, am not too happy with archive.org's privacy policy.)

Proof that 'The Green Capitalists' was correct about what 'The Rockefellers, An American Dynasty' said: https://files.catbox.moe/3cyukt.avi

Reasonable proof that the authors of 'The Rockefellers, An American Dynasty' actually had access to the Rockefeller Archives and reported factually: http://archive.is/PCmTg, https://www.nytimes.com/1976/04/05/archives/books-of-the-times-neither-saints-nor-demons.html.

Oh, I'm stuck on verifying the letter that JDR3 supposedly sent in 1934. Can anyone help me?
