j/k He was using that term in the context of broadening the
horizons of a new era, an era without the cold war or fear of a race-ending nuclear apocalypse. Go read the speech and you'll see what I mean, he
wasn't trying to create a world government.
Anyway, the point is this-
Are there people, groups, and families who have money, power, and the ability to leverage, blackmail, or otherwise enforce their will upon people
Certainly. This is historical fact, not fiction. Look back half a millennium at the De Medici Family. Read up on the Hapsburgs. Study the European
Peerage and look how all the noble families are intertwined. Look at the Kennedys & the Bush Family.
Next question- Is this a global conspiracy to create a New World Order?
No. These individuals and groups exert their power in the pursuit of more power, and more money. I'd be certain that they work in concert w/ one
another at different times, but like diplomacy, its only a temporary alliance to achieve a mutually beneficial goal.
But what about Bohemian Grove, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderbergers?
What about them? There is no law prohibiting rich people from congregating. Yes, I'm sure they all get together and discuss things of mutual
interest, money, the pursuit of more money, how to make even more money, and what would make it easier to acquire and keep more money. So what? I did
the same thing w/ friends when I was a kid making $25,000 a year. Besides, events like this are more a reason to get together and get bombed, be seen
by your peers, and see a few actual friends. The ultra rich are actually have quite the same needs as everyone else, they desire success, respect from
their peers, acknowledgment from friends, etc....except they have a crapload of money.
Personally, and I'm not slamming anyone here, I've always seen this "Elite control the NWO" idea as being perpetuated by people who do not have,
and will never have even a fraction of the success that elite enjoy. Reason being is this- they always come off as being these overly bitter people
who seem jealous of others. You'll inevitable hear things like "Why do they need that much money?" and other slanders of the very wealthy. I think
this conspiracy is mostly the result of envious and insecure people.
