Even you choose to Ignore the fact societies such as Skull and Bones, CFR, The Rhodes Society, The Trilateral Commission and Builderburgers run 70% of the world behind closed doors, then all this CHAOS we see round the Globe is PURE COINCIDENCE.
Who are the members of the Illuminati? See above societies and a handful of others.
If the NWO is happening (as many leaders and powerful people have ALREADY confirmed) why haven't they been stopped?
Maybe because they keep implementing new laws everyday to stop us taking action? and have used the tactic of Subversion.
The desire for power and influence has existed since we left the caves and discovered how to build weapons and make fire.. That isn't proof of the Illuminati however because there IS no proof for the Illuminati .. that is all pure speculation that all of those mentioned above are members of this mythical group.. they aren't unless there's evidence nobody has ever shared... and I mean actual evidence, not more commentary and more speculation.
Conspiracy theories love to go for doom and gloom angles and attribute it to shadow governments or one big powerful group behind everything.. but there's zero evidence for that.
What is there evidence of? well sure as the OP pointed out, there are indeed GROUPS of large powerful people out there who attempt to use their fame, money or power to influence things in the world.. but I hardly think it's anywhere near as dark and evil as most people tend to think on ATS ... there's never proof provided, only speculation and more theories.. or versions of old theories..
You get thrown the original "Well I won't look it up for you, the evidence is all around you" or "WAKE UP" .. "Sheeple", "Disinformation agent" ... all of which is not in the least productive or working towards any real answers... I've read tons of information, watched lots of video and heard most of the arguments.. and still seen no actual evidence.
However.. this is what ATS is good at ... speculation, and indeed that is what conspiracy theory is all about.. all I would ever ask is that people remember that they are only theories.. if they are to be asserted as any way factual, or to be taken as such.. then evidence needs to be provided..
I come to ATS to look at possibilities, I rarely come expecting actual facts.. I know what to expect.. but you do find those amazing threads sometimes that provide great information with facts to support them that you simply knew nothing about.. that makes it all worth while.. ATS is like an excavation site for me, you have to dig and dig.. but you usually find gold if you look hard enough.
