Here are some questions, if you believe that some central conspiracy had a serious impact during the cold war. I'll call them the "Illuminati"
for convenience, but they could be any group working behind the scenes.
1. The goal
What would have been the goal of illuminati-style intervention in history after WWII? World takeover by a single superstate? If so, and they were
backing the Soviet Union, then they seem to have failed. If the goal was to sink their hooks into society, or to "own everything," then they could
have done this without intervening in geopolitics.
2. Loose cannons
One of the big problems for them if they were engineering the Cuban Missle Crisis would be men like General Curtis Le May. He was highly
unpredictable, and I was talking with one of you about how he may have acted on his own in authorizing a dogfight somewhere over Cuba at the very
height of the crisis. He had soviet counterparts. How do you control for types like him, who are liable not to take orders from anyone but their
own moral code
in the midst of a crisis?
3. How to explain setbacks.
If the illuminati were "using" the cold war, they must have failed when the war ended, right? If the setbacks were "really" a
behind-the-scenes-success for the illuminati, then everything
was a success, and they must have gotten total control by now. (I'll be
watching to see if this line of my post "dissappears")
Now, all of that said, I will say that from a purely American viewpoint, there has been some traiting going on in very high places in US cold-war
politics. And JFK himself was guilty here, spectacularly so. He LIED during the 1960 election, claiming that America had a
with the Soviet Union, and the Republicans
had allowed the Soviets to gain
superiority over us. Second, the bay of pigs fiasco. And third, the fact that the whole Cuban missile crisis was caused by American
agression; the US had already placed missiles in Izmir, Turkey, at a time when our sub missiles could already hit moscow anyway.
So, while the Illuminatiacs might be trying to control the US govt, they sure don't control lone presidents, loose cannons, or dictators like
