  1. Greetings!
    Whilst unaware of the composition of many USA /multi -national /global organisations, the post implies that certain groups have emerged as “controllers “ and influencers of international media, politics and public opinion.

    My observation today, is that additional small elite groups also compete in these areas, with the aspiration to destroy sovereign states , free speech , the basic concepts of democracy and control global population.

    Truth- if there is such a thing , is what a “critical thinker “ seeks.

    Peace be with you ( from Devon . UK)

    1. I just ask a question and then provide factual information taken directly from current Wikipedia. The information I believe, speaks for itself. I think the world can get better if we know the real facts.
