Lets look at this logically, shall we.
There are thousands upon thousands of politicians, senators, congressman, ministers, etc, who work within the system. When one person "comes out" -
do you think, maybe, that she does so out of naivete? All the information she "discloses" is already on the internet. Frankly, to be honest, there
is something outright embarrassing about worrying about a new world order when you're an Australian minister whose there to represent the district
that elected you - not indulge in unfalsifiable claims about a new world order.
Are there people out there with plans for the future of our world? Certainly. Are there more than one? Yes! That's what think tanks are about. They
represent certain entrenched interests, which, confusingly enough, contradict other entrenched interests. Yet the conspiracy theorist will undoubtedly
argue that some superordinate body of unelected figures are "pulling the strings" - somehow controlling unknowns and the complexities of human
behavior i.e. irrational emotionality - to create a new world order.
The theory simply doesn't make sense to a social scientist or psychologist who studies human behavior. It's hard enough to get people of different
views to agree on policy - or even pass a new debt ceiling - yet people continue to believe that the world is being controlled as if it were an easy
thing to do.
Take Global warming. You have members of the CFR who actively promote more of the same - lessen green house gases, they say, but lets keep fracking,
lets develop carbon emission systems, etc. On the other hand, you have people on the left who want a faster and more assertive stance towards energy
Different perspectives, different views.
The problem with people who believe in conspiracy theories, in my opinion, is the sheer lack of sophistication in their thinking
