Great thread OP! S&F from me.
I´m of the very strong belief that there are people in this world who have a very big hand in everything happening around and shaping societies as a
whole. I´m not sure about the exact motives behind it, but control is surely the most important one. I feel we are being guided as sheep into a pen,
not realizing it until the gate will close.
Some people here replied that they find it inconceivable that this has been planned for centuries, or even millenia, and that they don´t understand
why some of these people wouldn´t refuse to cooperate. The answers to that are simple. In the first place, you do not have to plan every single
little step in advance. You can start with a masterplan, defining the ultimate goal. Then, looking at the current situation, you could start planning
the smaller steps to achieve the overall goal. You can adjust your plan accordingly over the passage of time and with previous results and reactions
in mind. There may have been many failures over time, but how would we know about it? For us it would have been just another unrelated event, as there
are many other events.
They who are in control are a select group of families with the means to execute such a large scale operation. Over the centuries they have managed to
infiltrate governments, set up banks and got us to care more about consuming than thinking. They control the flow of information being fed to us in
most every aspect. Witness to this are the attempts currently made to restrict access to or censor the internet as we now know it. The free discussion
of political or sensitive topics may very well be restricted in the near future, down to a point that only a select few "underground" figures would
continue to think critically and find ways to still communicate, while the rest of us resign to watch videos about cats playing a keyboard.
Secondly, those who are able to control entire populations most certainly wouldn´t have any problem controlling their own offspring and manipulating
them face to face. Indoctrinating a small child during its childhood is very effective, especially when they are sent to private schools and kept from
the proletarian population. Apart from that, most people born a billionaire to start with, wouldn´t complain about it. They are spoiled to the teeth,
never want for anything they can not have and are completely blinded by the same mechanism we are exposed to. Another reason why these families are
tight and do not expose each other is the simple fact that power corrupts. As children, these people are taught that they are of a "chosen" family. A
royal bloodline or the elite, whatever they like to call it. They make sure they are elevated above the "peasants" and that they feel superior for
what their ancestors have achieved so far, and dedicated to prolong the success to make them proud and being able to brag about it to their own
It´s a very serious topic. Whether they are "illuminati" or not; whether or not they planned it ages ago; whether or not the symbolism that is
usually connected to them is of any significance: the fact of today is that these families do exist. There are very wealthy families all over the
world, who own a big chunk of all the financial institutions, big corporations, media outlets and entertainment sectors. It´s not in their personal
interest to have it any other way. A New World Order would be in their interest. It would open gates to countries where they have been unsuccesful so
far to penetrate and execute their plan further. Any country not complying is swiftly overturned. How many examples are there not of countries whose
leaders were at first condoned or even installed by the UN, only later to be removed or condemned by the same UN, claiming tyrrany must make way for
If it were any other way, if governments in the world really cared about the people, then why is there still hunger in this world? Why is not everyone
provided for? Why do we have to work our asses off to be able to pay our rent or mortgage? Aren´t food, shelter, good health and security for
everyone the primary goals of having a government? There is enough money in this world to make sure no one has to suffer, yet our governments rather
spend it on pointless wars and bureaucracy, and we are letting them, electing them to do it even.
