Are THEY Controlling You?

In my last post, I addressed the many fake conspiracy sites on the internet airwaves and provided some clues on how to spot them.

I followed up with the idea that THEY (the people who might be controlling large groups of people on planet earth) actually wanted the general population to remain in a state of confusion and agitation in order to exert greater power over their dazed and exasperated constituents.

So, is there such a thing as THEY? Is there really a small group of super-rich and powerful people who are attempting to control every population center on earth; not through politics or majority vote, but by using devious means to manipulate the world and shape it according to their will?

Let's quickly look at 4 pieces of evidence that would support this theory:

  1. History

  2. Logic

  3. Evidence from outside investigative jouranlists

  4. Evidence from the insiders themselves


"Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers, as useful." — Seneca.

Seneca lived 2,000 years ago. He was born in 4. The literal year 4 BCE. Did they call that particular year just 4? What a disappointing name for a year. 4…

But I digress. Seneca observed that, even in ancient times, rulers were using religion to

control their people. Whether the religion was a representation of truth or not is

beside the point. Rulers were able to use it in order to control the masses. The message to the loyal subjects was simple, "Your purpose in life is to support and obey the religion of your society (and thus the rulers). You will be rewarded with a future Utopia should you do so."

In these modern and more enlightened times, many religions of the past are being overshadowed by a new belief; the cult of politics. The followers of this new religion are just as devout (if not more so) and just as useful to the rulers of our day.

However, we've progressed much farther than those uneducated dupes of old. The new and improved message for the chosen few is, "Your purpose in life is to support and obey your political party. You will be rewarded with a future Utopia should you do so."

Human Monkeys... and the beat goes on.

With this in mind, and because TRUTH is often the victim of religious (and political) movements, many secret societies were formed in order to speak freely and advocate for change without being dragged off by the authorities and burned at the stake.

These secret groups spawned gossip, conspiracy, and loathing among outsiders. Many of these societies simply served as safe spaces for open dialogue about everything from academia to religious discourse, removed from the restrictive eye of the church and state. Noah Schatman writes:

These societies were the incubators of democracy, modern science, and ecumenical religion. They elected their own leaders and drew up constitutions to govern their operations. It wasn’t an accident that Voltaire, George Washington, and Ben Franklin were all active members of secret societies. And just like today’s networked radicals, much of their power was wrapped up in their ability to stay anonymous and keep their communications secret.

The emphasis on secret was what inspired so much distrust in the exclusive clubs. The Freemasons are one of the largest secret societies to fit this category. Tracing their roots back to the middle age stone mason's guilds, their first Grand Lodge was built in 1717 in England.

No less than the New York Times weighed in on secret societies in 1880, not wholly dismissing the theory that “Freemasonry brought about the civil war and acquitted President Andrew Johnson and… has committed or concealed crimes without number.” The Times comments, “This able theory of Freemasonry is not so readily believed as the theory that the European secret societies are the ruling power in Europe, but there are still many people as yet outside the lunatic asylum who firmly believe it.”

The Da Vinci Code novelist, Dan Brown and his contemporaries, have also shined a light upon some of the bigger secret fraternal organizations like the Order of Skull and Bones, Freemasons, Rosicrucians, and the Illuminati.

In short, history is filled with dozens of examples of secret societies whose mission was to change the world according to their own desires. While this is far from a nefarious purpose, the secrecy involved in these groups will always point towards deceit, manipulation, and corruption.

And we must move on because attention spans are short...


Let's look at point number 2. Logic. Does it make sense that the rich and powerful would want to organize the world according to their needs? I believe that to argue against this assertion puts you into the category of unhealthy denial.

Common sense dictates that it takes a certain personality-type to rule large organizations. It takes a rare and different breed of human being to function as the CEO of a multi-million dollar corporation, to rule as a public servant over millions of constituents, to run a hedge

multi-billion dollar fund, or to command multiple streams of income and human capital successfully.

The traits it takes to make it to the top of such endeavors include: hyper-organization, unstoppable drive, an ability to ignore time-sucking activities such as friends and family, an aversion to rules and traditional morality, intellectual genius, an ability to obtain the right connections to guide you up the ladder, an appreciation and desire for evermore and expanding power, the ability to think and act strategically, and an abject fear of failure, to name just a few.

Now, you're going to look at the above-list and tell me that the folks who possess these personality traits are going to meet together at their conventions and corporate boardrooms, and communicate a message along these lines,

"Hi, guys! As you all know, our world is filled with chaos and thievery and danger and war, terrorists, religious zealots, political upheaval, rioting and such... I mean, some random nutjob could walk into New York City with a suitcase-nuke and completely collapse all our best-laid plans in one heartbeat. But ya know what? I think what really matters here is FREEDOM! Let's just roll the dice and allow people the freedom to move about the world unfettered and unmonitored. Personally, I BELIEVE in the goodness of mankind and I'm willing to bet my family's entire future on it! Aren't you? Whadda ya say, guys? Now, I know we're all fixated-control-freaks here. And I know how driven and desperate we are to keep this multi-trillion dollar financial game rigged in our favor forever. But I really think we should all just relax and NOT try to control the people benath us. Those 3rd class, uneducated dolts who really have no clue of what's going on in our universe and whose value is slightly less to us than that of the average milk cow. All in favor of letting the world's trash-pandas take control of the wheel in the name of freedom say, "AYE"".

I can guarantee you, that conversation has NEVER taken place among the world's elite. Mega-businesses need stability and order to function; not chaos, freedom, and unpredictability. As bad as that sounds to some, those are simply the facts.

So logic dictates that, yes, it's in the interest of the rich and powerful to control as much of the world as humanly possible. And with unbelievable advances in AI, control over government leaders (you can't possibly get elected without millions of corporate dollars funding your campaign), control of the military, the economy, and the media, dominion of the entire world is now well within their grasp.

Have I gone into conspiracy territory yet? Remember, it was Dwight D. Eisenhower, 5 star general in WW2 and twice-elected president of the United States, who warned us of the "Military-Industrial Complex". Here are his exact words,

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."

Well Ike, I believe the day you warned us against is right here and right now. The elite have definitely performed "an acquisition of unwarranted influence" over our governments. In the U.S. currently, "We-the-People" aren't afforded the opportunity to vote for candidates who might change our lives for the better, we get to choose between two corporate-bought shills promising with great bluster and bravado to steer the country to the left or to the right but then doing only the bidding of their unelected masters once in office. It's a great system... for the elites.

Notice that Eisenhower wasn't afraid of competing governments, he was fearful of the people who own the governments. It was in this vein that Thomas Jefferson declared, "...that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies..."

These are two very influential people warning of unelected and powerful bureaucrats wresting power from the people in order to maintain control of nations.

In reality, the world has most likely ALWAYS been run this way. We, the common folk, are just now beginning to realize the truth of it, on the eve of our complete captivity.

Whew! That was a heavy thought. Time for a smoke break...

And what have investigative reporters found regarding the subject of a "shadowy group of elites" secretly manipulating world affairs from behind the velvet curtain? Since this "shadow-group" owns every mas media outlet outright, information is going to be hard to come by, right?

That's a topic for next week. For now, you'll have to make do with HISTORY and LOGIC to guide your thinking. You may even want to look into it yourself! Nah! Just kidding. Way too much work.

Next week, I'll bombard you with the "latest and greatest" YouTube conspiracy theorists. Stay safe and know that, should I disappear or die in a mysterious accident, it was either the Shadow-Government that assassinated me for revealing the truth, or... it wasn't.

Either way, I'd truly enjoy the circumstances of my death to forever be shrouded in mystery...
