Paul Hellyer, a former Canadian Minister of Defence, is believed to be the highest-ranking former politician to come out as a believer of the popular conspiracy theory.
As one of the world's biggest conspiracy theories, the Illuminati is said to be a secretive global elite which runs governments from behind the scenes and is planning to introduce a New World Order (NWO).
He said: "You have a got secret cabal that’s actually running the world and they’ve managed to keep this technology under wraps until they can cash in the trillions of oil assets that they’ve got.
"And it’s not going to change until hundreds of thousands of people band together and say look ‘you’ve got to come clean, tell us what is going on, and change your priorities to save the world for further generations instead of blowing it on wars’."
"It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am." George Washington

If the Illuminati already control the world governments wouldn't it be safe to say they've already achieved their NWO? Why would they want a unified global population under a central government when they already pull the strings of every government as it is?
Look at how the world is run today and think about how different it is than say a thousand years ago. Seems like we've already got a new order to the world if you ask me.
If some group of powerful rich bastards have been suppressing what it takes for me to live the George Jetson lifestyle, I am going to be pretty pissed off when I find out about it.

IMO we hit peak complexity a while back or will soon hit peak complexity. Primarily because the energy returned over energy invested ratios of our fossil fuels are rapidly declining. This can be easily be seen by US energy companies that haven't produced a dime of profit in 10 years and are relying on exponentially increasing levels of debt.
