If you have been reading my other posts, you know that I believe that there is a power elite in the world that operates hidden from the public eye, with selfish interests.
John Perkins calls it the Corporatocracy.
Carroll Quigley calls it an Anglophile elite.
Quigley was a well-respected Georgetown University historian and professor. He was an elitist who agreed with the elite's secretive agenda of oppression. Bill Clinton was his protege. Clinton is quoted as saying:
"I heard that call clarified by a professor I had named Carroll Quigley"
If one can easily believe that in a small town the sheriff, the mayor, and the judge are all corrupt and in cahoots, why would it be hard to believe the same to be true in the national level, namely the executive, judicial, and the legislative branches of government? And that people in power from different countries collude?
Government today resembles Fascism aka Corporatism:
- Government regulation favors big business over small
- Government regulation bails out businesses that are "too big to fail" despite risky business practices; and yet said businesses keep their earnings to themselves when times are good
- Government regulation in the form of the Federal Reserve (and all central banks around the world), confer a massive subsidy on the entire financial industry
- There's a revolving door between the highest positions of power in government and in the large corporations (e.g. Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, etc.)
The history of mankind has always been of hegemony. A group always rises to the top. This group always tends to step on others to get to, and to stay at, the top.
In the past this group tended to be royalty.
In about the 1700's the world saw the rise of liberal democracies, with the French Revolution and the American Revolution, and that was supposed to be the end of royalties. (The term here is loosely defined, as the USA is supposed to be a republic, not a democracy).
Great idea - that government officials are elected by the people, and that laws are written by their representatives. However, the democratic processes are simply being manipulated behind the scenes by a hidden power elite. The corporatocracy has replaced royalty.
This same corporatocracy controls the mass media, creating the illusion that people control their government and their destiny through the democratic process.
This same corporatocracy controls the economy via the money supply creation process. People never question the banking system. They just accept it like space and time and the weather. In reality it is a great scam known as the Compound Interest Paradox.
This same Corporatocracy controls the educational system. This is the reason the Compound Interest Paradox is never discussed in economics class or in college.
This same Corporatocracy exerts huge control on the direction of public and private money expenditure in scientific research. The Ford and Rockefeller foundations get to pick and choose what research projects get funded, just like they got to pick and choose which historians and professors got grants, in order that history books frunctions as propaganda.
I have posted that 1% of the population have varying degrees of psychopathy, and that the corporate structure attracts them, because ruthless behavior that non-psychopaths would have trouble doing, is rewarded. The corporatocracy, is basically comprised of the people who own and control the world's largest corporations, and the people in government are basically subservient to them, via the lobbyists. The lines between the highest echelons of the wealthiest corporations and government are blurred. Therefore, psychopaths run the government.
What if 1% of the 1% of the population that are psychopaths, are also very intelligent? What if 1% of those were also megalomanic? 1% of 1% of 1% equals 1 in a million. Of the 1 billion or so people on the planet who didn't grow up in poverty, there are 1,000 of them.
They are the Intelligent, Megalomanic Psychopaths.
They are our rulers.
