You forgot to show us where the Atlantic Council "sits" on the pyramid.....
It's a THINK TANK....Do you simply assume all think tanks are part of some mythical conspiracy? Or just this one, in particular?
Maybe you don't know or understand what a think tank does???
Totally appreciate your perspective, and I'm glad you chimed in on the thread.
What you should realize is that the naming convention of "think tank," the nomenclature used for organizations like the Atlantic Council, has been deliberately chosen on purpose. TPTB call it a "think tank" specifically because that name carries a neutral or even slightly positive connotation in the minds of most people.
Ergo, most people like yourself will hear of the organization, learn the Atlantic Council deems itself a "think tank," and think nothing more of it. That's the whole point--call it something innocent so a majority of the populace believe it innocuous.
I'd highly suggest you read Edward Bernays' book Propaganda, and you'll quickly come to appreciate how the labels given to these organizations are self-assigned and deliberately chosen to conceal the true nature of the underlying group.
So what do you claim to be the "true nature" of the Atlantic Council? do you have anything other than your opinion to support this view?
I am intimately aware of what, exactly, the Atlantic Council is and does.... So I'm calling a spade what it is and it is clear that you don't have a clue.
Cool, thanks for that perspective too!
I'm not really into arguing with people online, so I'm 100% cool with whatever you'd like to believe. Hope the rest of your day goes well! Cheers!
