The Conspiracy Too Big for Glenn Beck to See.
( Or does see but is a part thereof? )
No one seems to love a good conspiracy more than Glenn Beck. In order to have a clear view of any conspiracy you need to have a vantage point outside of that very conspiracy which is why I think Beck is missing the grandest of them all...he has wittingly or unwittingly become an integral part of this one.
There are major conspiracy theories about the global take over of the world. New World Order is a famous version. Players are claimed to include the Free Masons, the Illuminati, the Bilderberg Group, Skull and Bones and the list goes on.
As grand as all this may seem and as exciting the prospects for the next big movie full of intrigue and international plots may be, I believe the real conspiracy is both larger and simpler than these well endorsed theories. I think the plans are currently aimed more at the United States and specifically at the middle class. I also think that the "famous" conspiracy theories are smoke screens encouraged to hide what is taking place under our noses and with our full, if ignorant cooperation.
I don't believe our government is behind this. I do believe that some individuals in Congress are even if they have been co-opted by greed and a desire for power that over rides their patriotism and ethical values. Both parties are infected though I think the most serious level of infection is present in the Republican party. Some may be listening to a small constituency contrived for their consumption in order to conceal the real agenda they are manipulated into serving. The most recent contrive constituency appears to be the Tea Party followers. Few in this faux grass roots movement are aware of the huge influence and financial and political input of some very wealthy individuals such as the Koch brothers, Charles and David, tied in 9th place as America's richest men.
Two of the more famous backers for the Tea Party movement have been FreedomWorks and Americans for Prosperity. Both of these organizations include among their founders David Koch who is a Libertarian. It is impossible to define any political "party" as grass roots with the backing of some of the wealthiest men in the world behind it. FreedomWorks in particular has been identified as the single most influential group involved in launching the Tea Party Movement. It was the result of a merger of Citizens for a Sound Economy which was founded by Kock Industry (oil giant) interests that included major US Corporations including GE, Citibank, Amoco among others. These same founders have consistently meddled in Congress to enact laws friendly to their own business agendas that were detrimental to the typical American Citizen.
I bring up the Tea Party only as an example of the extent to which our major corporations are in the "business" of manipulating Americans in order to gain political power. Few if any of their followers would knowingly contribute to their own undoing if they fully realized the extent to which they are being "used" for a darker purpose that does not include the best interest of the future of most Americans. Glenn Beck has either been seduced or, because of his multi-millionaire status, combined with his celebrity status on conservative Fox cable, has been promised a seat at the table. Likewise for Rush Limbaugh who seems adept at playing their game for them on air.
