Not too shocking of a revelation, but good to hear that people are talking about the root of the problem…
The idea that a few bankers control a large chunk of the global economy might not seem like news to New York’s Occupy Wall Street movement and protesters elsewhere (see photo). But the study, by a trio of complex systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, is the first to go beyond ideology to empirically identify such a network of power. It combines the mathematics long used to model natural systems with comprehensive corporate data to map ownership among the world’s transnational corporations (TNCs).
“Reality is so complex, we must move away from dogma, whether it’s conspiracy theories or free-market,” says James Glattfelder. “Our analysis is reality-based.”

The most famous and powerful men throughout history have been “conspiracy theorists”. Or perhaps you could say that some people in high places have said things that we didn’t take seriously at the time, but when you put them all together in one place, it is obvious that they were more than casually aware of a huge conspiracy happening behind the scenes. Many of them were themselves members of secret societies – “in on the joke”, so to speak, being played against the common people. Not that wars and economic depressions are “funny”, but we certainly have been thoroughly tricked – played for fools – and they think it is funny when we fall for their tricks. Who are the “big boys”? And what do they say about the game they are playing that we are unaware of?
This is not really a video; it is a slide show. Click on the photos to move through them… and don’t forget to read the quotes – they will astonish you. Quote after quote revealing that “conspiracy” does not automatically equate to “theory”; there are also conspiracy facts.
“Total monopoly over drugs, money and oil…” It’s time for another Ida Tarbell. Lots of inconvenient facts here. There’s a fine line between having “a mind for business” and a criminal mind.

When dark deeds unfold, point the finger in this direction.

This is your real government; they transcend elected administrations, they permeate every political party, and they are responsible for nearly every aspect of the average American and European’s way of life. When the “left” is carrying the torch for two “Neo-Con” wars, starting yet another based on the same lies, peddled by the same media outlets that told of Iraqi WMD’s, the world has no choice, beyond profound cognitive dissonance, but to realize something is wrong.
What’s wrong is a system completely controlled by a corporate-financier oligarchy with financial, media, and industrial empires that span the globe. If we do not change the fact that we are helplessly dependent on these corporations that regulate every aspect of our nation politically, and every aspect of our lives personally, nothing else will ever change.
The following list, however extensive, is by far not all-inclusive. However after these examples, a pattern should become self-evident with the same names and corporations being listed again and again. It should be self-evident to readers of how dangerously pervasive these corporations have become in our daily lives. Finally, it should be self-evident as to how necessary it is to excise these corporations from our lives, our communities, and ultimately our nations, with the utmost expediency….
