People fear the unknown. Groups like these scare people because not everyone is privy to their goings-on.

That is because he was uncertain. The last person to whole heartedly believe in the agents/ county clubs if you will, killed himself last summer.

That's it? That's your post?

Just kidding man. My feelings on the aforementioned groups can be summed up with this quote: "The main thing that I learned about conspiracy theory is that conspiracy theorists actually believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is chaotic. The truth is, that it is not the Jewish banking conspiracy or the grey aliens or the 12 foot reptiloids from another dimension that are in control. The truth is more frightening, nobody is in control. The world is rudderless."

I think the conspiracy theories are crazy speculation. However I think you'd have to be a fool to not think that the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world aren't doing everything in their power to maintain/grow their power and wealth, even if that means starting wars and killing off innocent people. This has been the MO of humans throughout history.

A whole lot of power in this group. Probably more to it than meets the eye.

Please explain to me what these groups are supposed to be, who is in them (supposedly), what their objective is and how they supposedly are going to obtain that objective?

Forgive my ignorance...I have never been "in tune" with these theories.

There's not one group of old, rich white guys running the world. But there's hundreds of them trying to, occasionally with great success.

I have a relative that spams me regularly with British Banking conspiracies, here's a good summary of that one.

quote:

The real villains are at the heart of our economic and cultural life. They are the dynastic families who own the Bank of England, the US Federal Reserve and associated cartels. They also control the World Bank and IMF. Their identity is secret but Rothschild is certainly one of them. The Bank of England was "nationalized" in 1946 but the power to create money remained in the same hands.

England is in fact a financial oligarchy run by the "Crown" which refers to the "City of London" not the Queen. The City of London is run by the Bank of England, a private corporation. The City is a sovereign state located in the heart of greater London. The Vatican of the financial world, the City is not subject to British law.

...The City of London dominates the world's speculative markets. A tightly interlocking group of corporations, involved in raw materials extraction, finance, insurance, transportation, and food production, controls the lion's share of the world market, and exerts virtual ``choke point'' control over world industry."

Steinberg belongs to a group of historians associated with economist Lyndon Larouche. They have traced this scourge to the migration of the Venetian mercantile oligarchy to England more than 300 years ago.

Although the Larouche historians do not say so, it appears that many members of this oligarchy were Jews. Cecil Roth writes: "The trade of Venice was overwhelmingly concentrated in the hands of the Jews, the wealthiest of the mercantile class." (The History of the Jews in Venice, 1930)

The Jewish banking families made it a practice to marry their female offspring to spendthrift European aristocrats. In Jewish law, the mixed offspring of a Jewish mother is Jewish. (The male heirs always marry Jews.) Louis Monbatten, grandson of Queen Victoria and uncle of Prince Philip married the daughter of banker Alfred Cassel.

If they aren't Jewish by intermarriage, many European aristocrats consider themselves descendents of Biblical Hebrews. The Hapsburgs are related by marriage to the Merovingians who claim to be descendents of the Tribe of Benjamin.

In addition, many aristocrats belong to the "British Israel" Movement that believes the Anglo Saxon races are the lost tribes of Israel and Jesus was king of England.

LINK

Brits or Jews are irrelevant, people usually try to acquire as much wealth and power as they can, and especially when they are far removed from those they take it from, they often don't care how they get it. Whether there is much of a coordinated effort is another matter, but I would be surprised if the top .01% weren't individually trying to do some of the things the conspiracy theories accuse them of.

And I'm not saying the Rothschild et al aren't charitable, but first generation world class wealth like Bill Gates is seen using his money to try and save the world while old money heirs who've grown up in privilege and have probably been told they have a special destiny their entire lives are tied to conspiracy theories about starting wars and culling the population. Spoiled rich kids want to kill off some of the lower class to make a more perfect world? Again I'd be shocked if that wasn't the case. Humans gonna human.

here's the thing. since these small groups control so much...who would they end up competing with? each other

these super groups would eventually cannibalize themselves
