Op-Ed: The World’s Power People

Opinion-Editorial by Melissa Martin, Ph.D.

Who rules and runs the world? Is there an elite cabal of people that govern the planet from behind the scenes? Who owns the world economy? Does the Council of the 13 wealthiest families influence major world events? Who is the Big Cheese of global capitalism? Does Big Pharma rule healthcare? Does the “Deep State” reign supreme? Who controls economic, political, and technological issues? Does a sect control elections near and far? Who controls mainstream media? Who calls the shots in world affairs? It depends on who you ask.

Theories on secret societies, mega business moguls, wealthy families, and Royal families abound. Theories on the Great Reset (aka New World Order or One-World Order) abound.  

Is China and Russia in cahoots to dominate Earth? What happens when megalomaniacs obsessed with power use covert and overt tactics to deceive and dictate? Read your history books.  

The faith-based clan believe the power fight is a longstanding feud between God and Satan – and people have freewill to choose a side. And God is the ultimate winner.     

“…It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it…I’m talking about the real owners now, the real owners, the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t…They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear…Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want: They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. -George Carlin

Who’s in charge? Citizens, what say you?
