I think it goes without saying that most people in the upper echelons of governments and business are corrupt, dishonest, unethical, secretive,
exploitative, and constantly seeking to exert power and control over those that they are able to. I don't think that believing in this is a
''tinfoil'' conspiracy theory, when you only have to look throughout history and human nature to see that this has, and always will, happen when
humans have power and opportunity to exploit that power.
I believe that the nefarious actions of people with power are largely opportunistic and not systematically organised, rather than a highly organised,
agenda-driven ''NWO'' that so many people seem to believe in.
This is why I think that a lot of the backlash against Assange and Wikileaks comes from ''conspiracy theorists'' who are convinced that a ''NWO''
exists, yet the released cables don't appear to back up their theories, so they automatically come to the conclusion that Wikileaks must be Cointelpro
and Assange a CIA operative !
The cables so far have shown a world of diplomacy that is chaotic, disorganised and somewhat mundane.
They've highlighted deceit, dishonesty, secret negotiations and corruption on the global stage; but we all knew that existed anyway.
So when some people have in their mind that there is some large scale, highly organised NWO masterplan, and when evidence is released that doesn't
necessarily support this theory, rather than consider that their ideas may be wrong or exaggerated, they instead attempt to discredit the source of
the information that doesn't fit in with their pre-conceived theories and ideas.
