The most significant struggle in the world today is not the one taking place between the sexes, between Blacks and whites, between gays and non-gays, between NATO and the BRIC nations, or between Trump supporters and Trump haters. The struggle between Democrats and Republicans is of even less importance. The primary significant conflict in the world today is between a very small economic elite and the rest of us. The elite don't really much care whether you're black or white, male or female, gay or straight, Republican or Democrat, or from Tanzania or Brazil: if you are not wealthy, you are there to be sucked dry if you are in some way useful to them, or eliminated if you are not.

Yes, there is a conspiracy

The .001% does not want us to believe that they get together to make plans for their continuing and expanding supremacy. Such a notion, they would have us believe, is a figment of the imagination of people they call "conspiracy theorists." A "conspiracy" as I understand it, consists of a set of coordinated activities that are planned in secret -- hidden from the eyes of those whom the plans will affect. It is clear that there are people doing a lot of planning in a variety of right-wing think-tanks. I'm not sure whether they have aliens from other galaxies helping them, or what connection they might have with ancient cults and the Illuminati. Anything is possible. The conspirators look like plain old self-serving rich capitalists to me. It is at least clear that they are not socialists. But a conspiracy there is.

Interestingly, the people and organizations that do the conspiring are not difficult to identify. Lists of those attending the Bilderberg meetings will suffice to keep one up-to-date with the most prominent members. In addition to the Bilderberg group, the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission might be the next most important planning groups. With regard to organizations for carrying out the plans of the Council, the Bilderberg, the Trilateral groups and the other right-wing think-tanks, we would point to NATO, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the WTO (World Trade Organization). Unfortunately, at this point one has to admit that, for the most part, the United Nations has been co-opted by the economic elite. It is not the democracy of nations that it was intended to be.
