The Global Oligarchy
The world is waking up to discover the complex, mysterious and secret machinations of the world’s elite in creating a global system under their total control. Contrary to being a “conspiracy theory,” there is documented evidence of its existence.
Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time is a scholarly work of history written by Carroll Quigley (1910–1977), B.A., M.A., and PhD from Harvard, which covers the period of roughly 1880 to 1963. Quigley taught at Princeton University, Harvard, and the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University from 1941 to 1976. According to Quigley, “I know of the operation of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records.”
To fight a tyrannical system, one must understand how it works, how the system is set up and how it operates and controls almost all aspects of our lives. We must examine its origins and evolution: historically, politically, philosophically, financially, and, most important, who’s pulling the strings. We must create an exposé that is not for the fainthearted, one that will challenge most people’s deeply held beliefs of how the world works. If necessary we must shock people's sense of reality in order them up.
While some may be tempted to blame men for the current state of our planet, my research does not lead to an indictment of the men who currently control and manage the institutions in question. On the contrary, my inquiries lead to the conclusion hold both men and women responsible for the current state of affairs and to encourage the evolution of a balanced, integrated fusion of their characteristics and values. The value systems of our institutions are inequitable: they operate strictly on a male value system, and the results are disastrous for both human beings and the environment.
Women’s values have been generally sidelined. Our institutions must evolve to include values of equity, fairness, and justice. This evolution is beginning to take place now as women are reaching a critical mass in most institutions.
Men, primarily, have led the organizations that have created the great technological advances and high standard of living the West has enjoyed. These accomplishments were a result of masculine ambition, focus, and competitive drive, without which they would not have succeeded to bring these advances into the world. These masculine characteristics are to be applauded, respected, honored, and encouraged.
Simultaneously, primarily men lead the global oligarchy, which has perpetuated lives of misery and hopelessness around the globe. Unchecked ambition and competitive masculine drive are the causes of the injustice that is pervasive today. Women have a profound role in balancing the valuable masculine traits to create a more just, humane, and inclusive world. Their feminine traits will bring an equilibrium that is now missing.
Few people realize that there are only a few hundred individuals, primarily men, who control our destinies in the West and in the developing world. This oligarchy is also actively engaged in controlling the major institutions of the world: governments, central banks, universities, media, religions, and multinational corporations. The oligarchy’s goal is to control the production, consumption, media, education, finance, and governments of the world. We need to inquire as to how the matrix is designed and how it works. Then, by connecting the dots, we might see how the plan was formulated for executing the system that controls our lives today.
This global oligarchy and the corrupt political leaders in both the developed and developing world have plundered the earth for minerals, oil, timber, and other valuable natural resources in the developing world for hundreds of years. The global oligarchy’s financial institutions have indebted the developing world to such a degree that their financial viability is almost impossible. The West continues to export (dump) subsidized products to the developing world, which puts small farmers in the developing world out of business, while simultaneously prohibiting them from exporting their own products and crops by imposing import tariffs. As a prince of Lichtenstein noted,
The biggest help one can give to any developing country is free trade–allowing them to export their products. This is especially true when one thinks of Africa, for instance, where there is very rich agricultural land. The people of the African nations would be much better off if they could compete on the international market. The main reasons they can’t do this is because we in the more economically advanced nations subsidize all our agricultural products and construct import barriers of all sorts.
