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.

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 completely.
