Who runs the world? Quoting: Open Your Eyes
Knights of Malta?
Council of 3?
Black Nobility families?
it's a combination of the 300...
There has got to be more than just the Committee of 300.
Let's see if OP will "enlighten" us with the answer of the true power behind the scenes.
Who runs the world? Well, YOU do of course.
Wherever I travel, I see a lot of YOU's out there busy running the world. And I also see that you run the world based on your precepts of how things work and such. Little algorithms, constantly operating in the background. Where on Earth did THEY come from?
laughing, laughing, laughing out LOUD!!
And of course, being children, things go wrong when bad or selfish decisions are made. Bogey-men are thus created to absorb the blame...deep dark evil forces that make things go bump in the night. THEY are the reason for all this trouble! Bad, bad men!
I suppose another way to put it that you might understand better, is that the world is run by men who truly understand the dark nature of the human spirit. So, YOU provide the evil and these men create scenarios where they know how you will react. It is scary how accurately refined these rule-based systems have become. Ironically, THESE men of "knowledge" must keep their "hands" clean! Must! Or the MAGIC goes!
Oh! Sweet Irony!!
Believe me when I say that the efforts to suppress come from immediately above your station. Those who have a few extra comforts that you don't and that want to maintain your submission so that they can maintain theirs.
The real masters are the intellects who suggest in a suggestible way that which you cannot resist.
Did you know that the US porn industry is now larger than the Hollywood box office? Well over 10 billion! But ask anyone if they watch porn and you will likely be told NO!.
Who is the evil, dark force here? The entity who understands human lust and provides for it? The consumer of the lust? Would the porn industry exist if its services were not in demand? Would it end tomorrow if people chose to NOT watch porn? Of course. So, pick your evil!
Of course, the "secret(s)" has/have made more than one bloodline powerful beyond belief, and there are struggles. Ultimately, one will win out..so that's interesting!
