While they have indeed "stolen" something (beliefs, faith and material riches) they did perform a function that at some point served also a "good"
Humans are social animals religion is simply one form of controlling minds and to a degree imbuing the populace (especially in medieval times) with a
sense of morality did more good (to the species, not much to the particular individuals) that would otherwise be possible without the usurpation of
power over minds. Clearly the visible message of the Church was not and still is not evil (it can't or people wouldn't fallow or join any "bad"
religion). Most of the wrongs is done by intentional evil individuals or by the slow adaptation of the message. The "doctrine" has been modified
many times and always reflects aspirations and concerns of a majority of the population.
All organized institutions serve ultimately the purposes of the interest groups that control them, even when they are not powerful, all try to acquire
power to influence outsiders into towards their goals.
I do not believe in the illuminati concept as people on ATS tend to use or categorize it, and to a degree have some knowledge of the Jesuit sect (note
that the Jesuits had many enemies in the Church itself, due to their vows of poverty, to me a good thing if we look to the profiteering of the
Church). I also oppose categorizing all members of a group the same as the institution (as the video does and most people customarily do, there are
always tones of gray nothing is readily black or white.
securing a "world religion" along with the world gov't, world currency, and the world's demise.
The demise depends only on the implementations...
I see the process of normalization a good thing, a world religion would solve many problems of humanity but I think only a idiot believes that this an
goal that can be completed, it worked at first in Rome and in most of Europe because people had no time to think and no structured education a world
religion can only be imposed in
a state of absolutism (Like in Spain and Portugal and most of South America under the totalitarian regimes that worked hand in hand with the Chuch),
but we also have to give credit to some priests that actively participated in opposing the oppression (normally referred as red priests and labeled as
communists). So one world religion is a pipe dream that will not happen certainly in the next 300 years unless some religious dogma obtains
A world government is simply the only way forward, it can't be avoided and we have always been moving toward that. I see it as a positive thing if
done correctly and in a distributed manner, not a central way as they are attempting to create, that will always lead to trouble and ultimately
A world currency is also a good thing but it goes hand in hand with the political system, currency is a necessary evil, having a single currency will
reduce unfair competition and the lesson learned from the EU is that it requires a single world taxation policy, that leads united fair economic
planning. This is the thing if done quickly that will get us out of this rock or doom us and future generations to a world of pain.
They run the educational system in america, and all over the world.
Education is indoctrination, this is why state and institutions try to control the educational "system" as to shape minds toward their purposes.
Part of the erosion of the nuclear family is linked to this issue, reducing the family cohesion and stability increases the power of the state over
children but creates damaged individuals. One reason for the interest of the state in education is to form a national identity, a shared culture,
