Chris Hedges discusses his personal insights into the psychology and private behavior of the super rich and how these things relate to the state of the world today. One of the best Chris Hedges segments by far.
Make no mistake about it. The tide has turned on the global elite and there will be no going back. A new day is rising for humanity as those who have planned for complete control are now being exposed, cornered and investigated from many different angles. There is no need to buy into the fear-based propaganda the major media and even several alternative media outlets dispense. Very good things are happening and even better things are coming. Let’s take a look at some of the major stories that have occurred in the last 8 weeks alone. Piecing the puzzle together, we see that the jig is up and the events surrounding it are growing in size and speed…

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.”

Did you know that The Wizard of Oz was about the elite versus the common people, the Fed, and the silver versus gold debate? The “man behind the curtain” is actually a small group of very – nay, ultra – wealthy people. Their numbers are few and our numbers are many, but they have managed to survive and thrive at our expense due to secrecy and they have prevailed for over a century, managing to steal the wealth of our nation right under our noses. The Fed is not a government agency, but a private company. This article gives a clue of the bigger picture.
“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.” —Mayer Rothschild.
For most people, facing the truth is a hard thing to do. It is so much easier to simply ignore the obvious than it is to make the necessary, hard decisions that are required once we know the truth.
Facing the truth takes courage. Dealing with the truth demands courage. But ignoring harsh reality is cowardly. As I often say, “Silence isn’t golden, it’s yellow.”
As any “therapist” will tell you, the first step to healing is admitting the truth about your condition. An alcoholic will never seek treatment until he admits he has a problem. A gambler will never seek help until he admits that he is hooked on gambling. And a woman can never receive healing and forgiveness for a past abortion until she admits that what she did was wrong.
So, too, America is in a mess because we will not admit the obvious. We have failed to deal with what we know to be true. As in ‘The Wizard of Oz’, there really are ‘men behind the curtain’…

Does a shadowy group of obscenely wealthy elitists control the world? Do men and women with enormous amounts of money really run the world from behind the scenes?
The answer might surprise you.
Most of us tend to think of money as a convenient way to conduct transactions, but the truth is that it also represents power and control. And today we live in a neo-fuedalist system in which the super rich pull all the strings. When I am talking about the ultra-wealthy,
I am not just talking about people that have a few million dollars. As you will see later in this article, the ultra-wealthy have enough money sitting in offshore banks to buy all of the goods and services produced in the United States during the course of an entire year and still be able to pay off the entire U.S. national debt. That is an amount of money so large that it is almost incomprehensible. Under this ne0-feudalist system, all the rest of us are debt slaves, including our own governments.
Just look around – everyone is drowning in debt, and all of that debt is making the ultra-wealthy even wealthier. But the ultra-wealthy don’t just sit on all of that wealth. They use some of it to dominate the affairs of the nations.
The ultra-wealthy own virtually every major bank and every major corporation on the planet. They use a vast network of secret societies, think tanks and charitable organizations to advance their agendas and to keep their members in line. They control how we view the world through their ownership of the media and their dominance over our education system. They fund the campaigns of most of our politicians and they exert a tremendous amount of influence over international organizations such as the United Nations, the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO.
When you step back and take a look at the big picture, there is little doubt about who runs the world. It is just that most people don’t want to admit the truth…

Who invented “The divine right of kings”? Why, kings, of course. Who invented “war for profit”? Why, the Rothschilds, of course. Rothschild Zionism seems to be intent on destroying the world and most of its occupants. This is an excellent essay, written almost 150 years ago, which is unfortunately still very appropriate. “War for profit” has worked for a very long time but it is wearing thin, now that we understand the dynamics behind it.
Who compose the real governing power in the country? Who are the men, the responsible men, who rob us of our property? Restrain us of our liberty? Subject us to their arbitrary dominion? And devastate our homes, and shoot us down by the hundreds of thousands, if we resist? How shall we find these men? How shall we know them from others? How shall we defend ourselves and our property against them? Who, of our neighbors, are members of this secret band of robbers and murderers? How can we know which are their houses, that we may burn or demolish them? Which their property, that we may destroy it? Which their persons, that we may kill them, and rid the world and ourselves of such tyrants and monsters?
These are questions that must be answered, before men can be free; before they can protect themselves against this secret band of robbers and murderers, who now plunder, enslave, and destroy them.
The answer to these questions is, that only those who have the will and power to shoot down their fellow men, are the real rulers in this, as in all other (so-called) civilized countries; for by no others will civilized men be robbed, or enslaved.

The ranks of the privileged and powerful are experiencing unprecedented panic as an unexplained and highly deadly epidemic of Sudden Human Predator Death syndrome (SHPD) sweeps through the upper echelons of the glorious global oligarchy.
SHPD is a mysterious malady that, to date, has only stricken psychopaths in the highest ranks of the ruling elite…
Henry’s next stop was Saint Rockefeller’s Hospital for the Super Important, where he spoke with pandemic specialist Dr. Ima Noatall, who, upon inquiry, seemed to know next to nothing at all about why everyone who is anyone without a conscience is dropping like flies.
“SHPD is selectively striking psychopaths at the highest level of government, banking and industry," said Dr. Noatall, “God only knows what will become of the world if we lose one more member of the IMF or Trilateral Commission. The Council on Foreign Relations is holding steady on numbers, since most of them are just clueless intellectuals convinced they are saving the world through secret manipulation, but they’re running around like chickens with their heads cut off without marching orders from the top.”
“What is the source of this plague?” asked Henry. “Is it a virus of some kind?”
“Unlikely,” scoffed Dr. Noatall, “death by virus is primarily an invention to sell pharmaceuticals, fear and tyranny to the masses. It’s true that just about anything from a germ to a pin-prick can take someone down when the immune system reaches a certain critical level, but Globalords are hardly of the class that would be facing that kind of deprivation or intentionally orchestrated destruction.”
“Have you identified a cause of death?” Henry asked.
“Almost all have been identified as either sudden cardiac arrest, brain hemorrhage or burst aneurism,” said Dr. Noatall, speaking in a confidential whisper, as if afraid the walls had ears. “Most of the upper echelons have been evacuated to their emergency underground bunkers, but it hasn’t slowed down the SHPD, not in the slightest. They’re dropping at the rate of about one every day. They’re afraid of their own shadows.”
Dr. Noatall reports that the Globalords have eliminated nearly every doctor, body guard, cook, servant and intelligence operative on their teams in a frantic effort to identify the source of the SHPD, but the demise of the elite has continued unabated. The wealthiest and most important psychopaths in the world, most of whom have never so much as trimmed their own toenails, are doing their own laundry, preparing their own dinners and scrubbing their own toilets, afraid to let anyone near them until the source of the deadly pandemic has been identified…
“It’s a horrifying prospect,” said Dr. Noatall, “but the only other explanation we can think of is divine intervention, which has long been recognized as a fairy tale created by ancient Globalords to discourage popular uprisings.”
William Rockefeller (aka “Devil Bill”, aka William Levingston), was literally a traveling snake oil salesman with at least two wives, at least two children with the family maid, a convicted rapist, a trickster and a con man.
William was the daddy of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. William taught his son through fear and uncertainty that John D needed to be in absolute control of his world. It was due to John D’s insecurity that he took over all aspects of the oil industry and made U.S. anti-monopoly laws necessary. Secret alliances – none dare call it conspiracy – served him well. With a little help from his friends, John destroyed all his competition. See in this video how John D’s father fanned the fires of his ruthless behaviors and attitudes.
