In Days Of Old When Knights Were Bold

…there were a bunch of families who owned and controlled everything.

They were known as “Nobility” and “Royalty”

And most of them were extremely wealthy by the standards of the time.

Many of these families still exist, such as the Habsburgs, the Hohenzollern, House of Orange-Nassau, and the Battenbergs (Anglicized to Mountbatten, AKA Windsor).

And they’re still extremely wealthy.

They have been joined by a few nouveau-riche families such as the Rockefellers and the Morgans, as well as some International Bankers like the Rothschilds and Warburgs to form a new elite who hide behind curtains and pretty much control nearly every aspect of life on this planet — from finance and government to religion and culture.

They use their immense wealth, prestige and power to control governments and economies to perpetuate their stranglehold on global society and to control events in ways that further their interests.

The people who hold office in most of the countries of the world are mere technocrats and servants for these elites.

Some refer to them as “The Illuminati”, “Oligarchs”, “TPTB”, and “The Cabal”.

Other names are “Wall Street”, “The Corporatocracy” or simply “Corporations”

It doesn’t matter what you call them, or if, in fact, they even have a name for themselves.

They are real, they exist, and they do not have the people’s interests at heart. In fact, they are comprised of the most selfish, megalomaniacal, and sociopathic individuals possible. They are brought up as children to be that way.

(Their existence can be proven by their shadow, and by the trail of shit they leave behind.)

So, what do these assholes want?

In simple English: Security!

They are scared shitless that the rest of us might wake up and start erecting guillotines in the streets.

So, they want a “New World Order”, a totalitarian authoritarian world government—which will replace sovereign nation-states—and an all-encompassing propaganda whose ideology hails the establishment of the New World Order as the culmination of history's progress.

This fascist government would encompass  militarism, imperialism, widespread spying on citizens, corporatism, increased social control   and the use of propaganda to manufacture a national consensus into culture, government, and business.

Looking back, from the beginning of the 20th century to today, it appears that they are well on the way to fulfilling this nightmare.
