There is a rather controversial opinion of mine, most people are of the opinion that you shouldn't speak ill of the dead. I am not one of those people. I am of Hunter S. Thompson's point of view that if a bad person is dead, you say what kind of person they actually were and he demonstrated this when Richard Nixon died by titling his obituary, he was scum and fully telling the reader why I will link this here https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1994/07/he-was-a-crook/308699/ . I believe that a person is who they were in life warts and all. When I die someday myself, If I hurt people, people should know. The Rockefeller are and always have been bad people. Now at this point people are going to scream at me, you shouldn't speak ill of the dead. So I want to remind people of how they made their fortune and the people they had killed. I'm not being metaphorical either, I'm being literal.
The Rockefeller's fortune came from well the original John Rockefeller, who was as big a bastard as they come.
You don't get to order the massacre of Men who are fighting for a fair wage and safe working conditions and their families and have me say nice things about your family. That is what happened in Colorado in the Ludlow Massacre where John Rockefeller Jr. David Rockefeller's father used his pull to send in the national guard to take down a tent colony of 1200 striking workers. They burned it to the ground killing 26 people, including not only strikers but their wives and children.
Now you might say well that was his father that was him. You would be right, however the apple didn't fall far from the tree.
In 1973 the CIA on what was essentially the decision of Henry Kissinger overthrew the democratically elected Chilean Leader Salvador Allende and replaced him with a Military Dictatorship
The man who advised Henry Kissinger on that matter was none of than David Rockefeller. Why? Because the bank he ran, Chase Bank had an interest in Chile and Salvador Allende was a Socialist who didn't care for a billionaire clan of bankers. The person who replaced him was none other than a dictator named Augusto Pinochet. Now this may be hard to swallow for Republicans, but the socialist happens to be a good guy here, the authoritarian right wing leader was the one who tortured people, had death squads roaming, disappeared more than 3000 innocent people who opposed the regime. I know, its like greed causes problems or something, and he was backed by a republican president who was advised by another republican named DAVID ROCKEFELLER. That is the man who died yesterday, a banker who wanted a brutal regime in place of a democratically elected socialist leader because it would make him money.
David Rockefeller is dead, good riddance.

I agree, you are what you leave behind. The Rockefeller family has left behind the ruthless path that allowed them their wealth. A pass bisected by violence and the supression of liberty
