(This is a light-hearted topic - or is it? Do think about it for a while ...?)
My brother, who is always watching 'conspiratory theory' ideas, maintains that the world is run, not by Governments of politicians, but by the richest men in the world.
They decide when there should be a war, with whom, and where. And manipulate the outcome.
The World Wars, the Twin Towers, the rise of Terroism, is all down to them.
They are so powerful that they decide who will become Prime Minister, or President, or Head of State. They control scientific research, migration, epidemics, rates of employment and education - and all the other aspects of our lives.
In short, They completely control US.
And it's all for money (of course). So that They remain the richest, most powerful men in the world.
Sounds fantastic ...? Yes, it does - but who knows? (Feel I should have some spookey music here - but you'll just have to imagine it!)
