ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the decision of John D. Rockefeller to deviate himself from the blight of Prohibition spread over the U.S. in 1932. He claims that the statement was of tremendously greater import than Rockefeller himself. He claims that Rockefeller's decision has freed the political parties from what is their major inhibition. He adds that it has greatly strengthened the influence of those associations which have been organized to effect the repeal of the 18th Amendment.
