Who are the most powerful people in the world and what do they really want?
Elected politicians are quite rightfully subjected to a huge amount of scrutiny by the mass media and the institutions of the state.
This means that their corruption, illicit activities and poor performances in their roles are consistently highlighted to the public. However, there is an argument that this level of scrutiny and criticism should be applied to other individuals who are arguably more influential and powerful in society who seem to manage to evade the same level of examination and accountability.
There are some wealthy families and individuals operating in the United States who exert disproportionate influence over the workings of society and yet are not held accountable for the ways that they wield that power. In fact, most people in American society do not even know the names of these individuals or how acutely they have affected their lives.
The first of these individuals is David Rockefeller, a direct descendant of the first American billionaire J.D. Rockefeller who made his fortune monopolizing the American Medical Establishment. Over the years, the Rockefeller family have been pivotal in the campaign to discredit natural remedies and the growth of the notoriously corrupt pharmaceutical industry. David Rockefeller has also been linked to highly controversial political ideas, claiming that he would like to play a role in the establishment of a one world government which is completely controlled by the elite. He once wrote, “Some even believe [the Rockefellers] are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’, conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I’m proud of it.”
Another person who is believed to share his views is Henry Kissinger, who Rockefeller has been close friends with since 1954. When he served as Secretary of State, Kissinger created a bloody and disgraceful legacy with the war in Vietnam, the instigation of coups in South America and assisting corrupt and brutal regimes all over the world to suit his economic agenda. Now he has fallen out of the spotlight to some extent, but he still serves a crucial role in defining the US and international politics and is regularly called upon by serving presidents and Secretaries of State for advice in the perpetuation of the War on Terror.
George Soros has also played his role in advising politicians as to how to set their agendas despite the fact that he has a notorious reputation as a financial parasite who has made his fortune on economic collapse. During the 1997 Asian financial crisis, he was accused of bringing down the entire Malaysian government through illegal insider trading, and it is believed that he was acting in a similar fashion in England. Despite this shameful professional reputation, Soros is best known today for his so-called philanthropic causes. Soros claims that he wants to use his money to make the world a better place, however, his political views have led him towards some disreputable allegations such as rigging elections.
Soros’s relationships with the Clintons is well known. Another person believed to have had a huge influence on the political power couple is Lawrence Summers. Under Bill Clinton, Summers served in various positions within the US Treasury eventually rising to the head of the Department in 1999. While he was in office, Summers removed the Glass-Steagall Act which is believed to have played a central role in the global economic crisis of 2008. Following his stint in government, Summers has been aggressively pursuing his financial deregulation agenda all over the world, and his actions have contributed to a rise in the level of inequality and the transferring of huge amounts of wealth from the population to the elite.
Perhaps the most influential and shadowy figures in the world are the Rothschild familywho owns a majority of the world’s central banks which operate as private institutions as well as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. The family is quite open about how much influence they exert over the affairs of the world with the patriarch of the family Mayer Amschel Rothschild once saying, “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.” The family has also been open about their ability to destroy any nation which does not follow their agenda to the letter which means that even powerful political figures such as Hillary Clinton have been reported to grovel to them for forgiveness when she incurred their displeasure.
