When people try to tell me that the New World Order is a fairy tale, that the illuminati doesn't exist and that democracy & our current political
and economic system are bonafide and altruistic .. I get.. well I get extremely frustrated.
You are oversimplifying in order to justify fairy tales, and sell Icke books.
Just because someone doesn't believe in an organized conspiracy does not mean that they believe the economic and political system to be "bonafide
and altruistic". That is a logical fallacy of the highest order that will get most rational people to immediately discount your post.
History is full of connections, connections that have some meaning but do not give any credence to formal conspiracy theories. Do the rich and
powerful want to retain their wealth and power? Yes. Do they sometimes collaborate with each other to do so? Yes.
But just because a couple of prominent families that had Templar connections in the early 14th century have a Masonic connection centuries later it
doesn't mean the Templars are directly related to the Masons. I do think there are indirect influences, but that does not feed into a unified field
Centralization schemes, celebrated by that era's elites and the poor they pretend to champion, always pop up throughout history. The sole reason for
this is the fact that centralized governance cements the power of the elites and protects them from an empowered middle class. There does not have to
be a constant agenda, other than the organic one of power seeking to enhance and protect itself.
Do I think there is a "NWO" type agenda going on now? Certainly, but it isn't part of a centuries long plan. With modern communications and
technology, the elite actually have a shot at global centralization for the first time. The funny thing is, they won't get it. History has proven
that this agenda always leads to its own destruction. Look at the Euro. A power grab by bankers to centralize and control Europe. It is failing. The
current bipartisan move to create a super nanny police state in the U.S. will not be able to stand under its own weight either.
The majority of the US Founding Fathers saw this trend which is why most of them (not Hamilton) sought to create a decentralized nation, tied together
through the Constitution but where the power lay closer to the people via state and local governments. The alliance of the very rich and the very poor
eventually won out, albeit after much struggling and over a long period of time. The circumstances of the Civil War (which destroyed the power of the
states), the Progressive era (which sought centralization and demonization of middle class self reliance and the creation of the Federal Reserve), the
Depression (in which FDR's balancing act saved the country but had negative long term consequences), WW2's creation of the military industrial
complex, and the P.C. crowd's insistence that minorities are so pathetic that they need the government to hold their hand and protect them at every
turn has eroded the power of the people to the point that we are where we are now.
Self serving elites and an easily manipulated population brought us here. Not a centuries long conspiracy.
The Ickes, Alex Jones', Jim Marrs' of the world serve to help us see that connections exist, which many find fascinating, but under closer scrutiny,
one can find that playing "6 degrees of Kevin Bacon" with historical facts can connect anything to just about anything else. Use these sources as a
tool. A tool that is only effective with a gigantic grain of salt.
