In all the research you've accumulated, have you been able to piece it all
together, like the pieces of a puzzle, so as to form a working/coherent
worldview, which makes sense of all that is going on in the world, that on
the surface, seems unrelated? Is there a push for a "New World Order /ONE
WORLD GOVERNMENT, among the wealthiest top 2% of the world's total population?
Also, what can we/should we, as individuals, do, in order to take back our
country, and preserve our liberty, as Americans?
Certainly there is highly organized cooperation among the world's wealthy,
individuals, institutions and corporations. To the extent this group is able
to influence governments, it does aim to influence political, economic and
social policy to serve its interests.
There continues to be competition among governments as well as among the
members of this wealthy group and that leads to disagreement and dispute
about who is supreme -- the group does not like equality and therefore
continually struggles to gain control of its members openly and covertly.
Covert manipulation of the group and the populace of nations is carried out
by the world's vast intelligence operations, private and governmental, which
is itself a global force which may be more powerful than that based on wealth
or national identity.
The principal tool for covert manipulation is secrecy, again private and
governmental. Secrecy fosters deception and cloaks criminal activity, and
most importantly, it is opposed to democratic openness and prevents full
governmental transparency and accountability.
Secrecy is increasing, and to the exact extent it increases it favors those
who keep secrets and enforce laws that protect secrecy, most often invoked
on the basis of "national security" but also heavily used to hide commercial
My view is that secrecy is the greatest threat to freedom throughout the
world, by far the greatest threat to democracy and freedom, and has been
in history and will continue to be. Without secrecy none of the private and
governmental means to control and exploit the uninformed populace would work.
Abuse of secrecy underlies all efforts to frighten the populace into submission
and obedience. The current financial crisis an example, not different from
that used to go to war in Iraq and wars galore in the past and yet to come
unless people rise up to abolish secrecy -- which they do from time to time,
thank goodness, but the vile addictive practice requires constant
medication, or best, surgical removal.
