I'm referring to this with regard to NWO and Illuminati hoohah.
Is it because they have seen people corrupted by power first hand?
Are the seeing what they would do if they had power?
Is it the tall poppy syndrome?
Is it plain pessimism?
Is it because of irrefutable evidence?
Is it because they don't feel in control of their life so they want to blame someone?
Myself, I find it very saddening that people will automatically assume that people like Obama, Bush, Rockefellers are all about the money and the
power. I believe that MOST of these people have good intentions of doing the best for the people.
You've kind of answered your own question here. When you qualify what you say with a capitalised "MOST" as a very clear caveat you're admitting
that there are some that will abuse or misuse this power. As long as that's the case, it's inevitable and perhaps, to an extent, prudent to be wary
of people with so much power.
Also, you have to bear in mind that much of the Western world is driven by the want of money. On some level, it's what motivates the vast majority of
people. For every person that's happy with a meagre lifestyle, there's a dozen who will happily admit to wanting more, more, more. It's a given
that the people behind corporatism, the banks &c are the kind of people who want more, more, more. When was the last time you heard of a CEO or a
business owner saying 'right, we've earned our money now, so let's shut up shop'? It just doesn't happen. It's always more, more, more.
What's more, it's also a given that the more they have - in that they've got successful and 'big' - the more able they are to get more, because
they can play dirtier than everyone else. It gets to the point where they can pay for the rules to be bent in their favour or just buy new rules
