Hey Mr King9072 - a very interesting, articulate and well thought out post. Unfortunately, I just cannot agree with you. Please don't take this as an insult, but I think you sound a little paranoid, and are seeing patterns that aren't there, leading to flawed conclusions.
You are attributing these government types as Bond Villain-like evil geniuses cleverly manipulating international politics to take over the world. This is ridiculous for the following reasons:-
1) Not everyone in politics is evil. The motivation just is not there. I have a fundamental belief in the goodness of my fellow man (at least in the most part). For your conclusions to be true, you would need corrupt, evil individuals throughout the hierarchy of American politics. On a similar note, not only would the politicians have to be thoroughly corrupt, but so would the military. Do you really think that the average grunt, earning a # wage, is going to collude with a plan that is going to devastate his friends and family? Come on!
2) Not only would these 'enlightened ones' have had to infiltrate the American government, but also all the major international governments. ALL of them. How likely do you think this is? Otherwise, appropriate actions would be taken to intervene.
3) Why should I bother stocking up on goods/ water, etc when I know that if it all goes tits-up, I can just stroll over to your little enclosure and steal all your stuff??? Obviously I'm joking, but there is a serious point in there. By warning everyone of these events, you are setting yourself up as a likely target if one feels a bit peckish and is wondering where to steal some goodies.
John (having said that - I liked the post, and usually enjoy reading what you have to say, King9072).

I just wanted to add to my post above..... (I think this is a really interesting thread!)
IF..... the first few stages of your prediction come to pass - what makes you so sure the outcome will be the that those with foodstores will demand protection from the government and hand over more powers? On the contrary, we - in my opinion at least - are more likely to have a full-blown revolution. This could be the great, big re-set switch. It could be a great thing. The people fighting back, and throwing off those shackles. Maybe the 'enlightened ones' are actually on our side?!
Maybe the 'enlightened ones' are actually on our side?
"We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years."
"It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries."
- David Rockefeller
For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will.

Paranoia grows more and more complex by the day, I'd have to ask. . . What if nothing has happened in twenty years and you read the same post by the next generations of the highly paranoid?
Will you counter there fears as I just have, or fear being labelled a member of the 'sheeple' society?
Edit: God bless America.
