Why is the idea of a cabal of the world’s wealthiest people conspiring behind the scenes such a far-fetched idea?
I’ve received a few emails now asking me for my take on the “New World Order” conspiracy theories that people like Alex Jones and David Icke talk about. It’s no secret that I think Alex Jones is a fat fearmongering piece of shit who offers his listeners and readers no solutions to combat the New World Order other than using the same broken system that he says they control. As for David Icke, well, he believes the Royal Family are interdimensional shape-shifting reptilians. Draw your own conclusions from that.
For those who have never heard of the New World Order before, the simplified version: The world’s wealthiest families are pulling the strings behind the scenes, doing things such as engineering conflicts, all with the end-goal of creating a one-world government which would be nothing more than their puppets. After the world’s population is in some way lowered to a more manageable number, the wealthy class would solidify their rule over the now-merged lower and middle class in a system that would basically amount to feudalism. The basic motive is of course the natural lust for more power over others.
After that is where people start to break off into different aspects of the theory, ranging from nothing more than a lust for power to the more outlandish theories such as the New World Order members being reptilian space aliens disguised as humans and feeding off of our negative emotions.
Before I continue, let me clarify the difference between the rich and the wealthy. As Chris Rock so eloquently put it: “Shaq is rich. The white man that signs his check is wealthy.” Wealth is something that can be passed down from generation to generation.
If you ask the average person for their take on this, most of them won’t outright disagree with the idea of a cabal of wealthy people conspiring to fuck over the lower and middle classes. To Joe and Jane Sixpack, it’s as simple as the wealthy people stopping the poor people from being rich so there’s more money for them. Once you attempt to delve beyond that simplicity and into the idea that maybe these people are also starting wars and plotting to create a one-world government that would amount to a dictatorship by the wealthy, the average person will either scoff it off and lump you in with the tinfoil morons, or immediately try to change the subject to something easier for their minds to process. Should you try to press it, the result will usually be something along the lines of “Yeah, but that’s life. What can you do about it? Hey, do you watch (name of popular TV show)?” Goddamnit people! This attitude is destroying freedom! COMPLACENCY IS COMPLICITY.
You want to know what I think about the New World Order? I whole-heartedly believe that there is a cabal of wealthy individuals actively working behind the scenes to create a feudalistic one-world government and subjugate the entire population. Further, I implicate at the very least the following families in this conspiracy:
-The Royal Family of England
Before someone emails me to mention the supposed “13 Illuminati Bloodlines”, I’m sure there are many more families, but these are the ones who I have no uncertainty are at the helm of the New World Order plot. I also suspect the Kennedy family was involved with this, and had a falling out with one of the other families. Bad luck my ass. Also, I know without doubt that there are many more wealthy people and families who have less standing in this plot, and some who may not even be aware that they’re being used as pawns. Nor do I doubt that there are other wealthy families who actively oppose the New World Order.
I don’t understand why people are so skeptical of this idea. Is it really that hard to comprehend the idea that a bunch of people with substantial wealth have contempt for people without wealth? Is the idea of the wealthiest families in the world using their money and influence to pull strings behind the scenes to reap further profit and assert authority over others really so outlandish? Come on people, get your heads out of your asses. I can accept that some people might be skeptical of certain parts of the theory, but to say that it’s downright impossible and dismissing the entire theory is nothing short of being fucking stupid.
One of the most commonly parroted counterarguments is “But if this was going on, wouldn’t some whistleblower have exposed it by now?” Who is the whistleblower going to go to? The media? These people own the media! If they publish it independently on the internet, or go to a non-mainstream source (which we’ve been conditioned to view as unreputable), they’re simply brushed off as a raving lunatic. And if their claims aren’t immediately viewed as crazy, so-called “experts” are paraded out to debunk their claims.
Another bullshit counterargument is “So if this is true, why haven’t the people working to expose it been assassinated?” It’s much easier to just convince the majority those people are crazy than it is to have to create a story explaining how they died. Why make a mess when you don’t have to? You could pay some hitmen a bunch of money to stage the person’s suicide or accidental death, which would really just lend credence to their claims that something shady’s going on. Or, you could pay some “experts” to make up some semi-believable bullshit about why the person’s theories can’t possibly be true.
Regardless of whether or not you believe this conspiracy is true, anybody who finds the idea of the world’s wealthiest families plotting to create a feudalistic dictatorship with themselves at the top to be “crazy” or “outlandish” is just fucking retarded, and would probably serve the world better by going to Iraq and falling on live grenades.
