Well, I'm no expert on the matter, but from the small amount of research I've done into this, a lot of the same people are both in politics and run
those companies. George Bush Sr, for example, works for the Carlyle (sp?) Group, a multibillion dollar investment firm. Dick Cheney worked for
Halliburton, and while he supposedly severed all ties with them when he became vice president of the US, a lot of people have questioned what appears
to be preferential treatment by the government of that company.
These big companies are also essentially paying no tax, as compared to their earnings, because of legal loopholes and current tax laws, at least
percentage-wise, compared to the average person. Companies are able to lobby far too easily to get their own way in government, because they have
fame and money on their side, not to mention huge influences on thousands of jobs.
For the effect on things like pensions, look at a company like Enron, which recently went bankrupt after its owners essentially robbed the
shareholders and employees of their stock value and pensions. A lot of people got royally screwed by that, and about a half dozen made millions off
Personally, I don't think there is a single, unified force trying to bring about a one world regime, though many others here do believe it. I think
good arguments can be made either way. I could maybe see such a one world goverment being, not like true communism, but like Russian communism, where
the average people got shafted and the leaders lived in luxury.
Yeah, that's my two cents. Take a look at some posts by people like Infinite, he has done a lot of research in this area. Unfortunately, I don't
think he's active on this board anymore, or at least I haven't seen any evidence of it, but his past posts should be helpful.
