Rockefeller was legendary for his use of front men and the surreptitious purchase of companies and people, to hide his hand.� Accordingly, it is difficult to know exactly when the Rockefeller Empire began wrapping its tentacles around the Middle East, but scholars who have investigated those matters say that the world’s first global oil cartel was formed in 1920, between Standard Oil, Royal Dutch Shell (today Shell Oil), and Anglo-Iranian (today British Petroleum). [250] � Whatever the case may be, oil politics guided the dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire and the UK largely took over Iran, and its Anglo-Iranian oil company eventually had a monopoly.� France got its rev enge on Germany for the humiliation of the Franco-Prussian War, and heavy reparations were laid on Germany, a forced admission of guilt, as well as disarmament.� That situation led directly to World War II.� The USA took center stage during World War II.� Woodrow Wilson ran for re-election in 1916 on the platform of not getting the USA involved in World War I.� He quickly reneged on the deal and the American government’s first big PR campaign in American history was manipulating Americans to support involvement in Europe’s war. [251] � The Espionage Act was passed, along with a related sedition amendment, which made it a crime to speak out against the war.� Hundreds of Americans were imprisoned under those laws, including presidential candidate Eugene Debs, who was a socialist and noted pacifist.� He even ran from prison in 1920 and received nearly a million votes.� Silencing internal dissent was an imperial necessity.� Wilson was a noted racist.� He segregated the federal government and brought back Jim Crow. [252] � The economic progress that blacks had made since the Civil War was curtailed and even reversed under Wilson’s openly racist administration.� In 1940, black families had a proportionally lower income compared to white families than they had in 1900, at about 30%. [253] � Under Wils on, the USA invaded Latin American nations nearly at will.� Franklin Roosevelt worked in the Department of the Navy under Wilson, and after the USA invaded Haiti in 1915, Roosevelt was the author of Haiti’s new constitution, and Roosevelt bragged that he worked in a major change in the Haitian constitution.� Ever since they freed themselves, the Haitian constitution forbade foreign land ownership, to prevent the white-owned plantation culture from reappearing there.� Roosevelt abolished it, which paved the way for Haiti to become a neocolonial asset of the USA.� Thousands of Haitians died resisting the American invasion.� Wilson’s racism and imperialism are minimized in the standard American histories, while Americans are told about Wilson the great diplomat who founded the League of Nations.
