When I was very young and living in Abingdon an incredibly intelligent woman lived opposite my parents, Dr Kitty Little. ( http://www.big-lies.org/kitty-little/1978-treason-at-westminster.html) If my father and I were outside on the drive repairing or cleaning a car or motorbike she would come over and engage in debate with my father about scientific areas they had a mutual interest in. But always these conversations would turn to her pet subject, a conspiracy theory where the Rothschild family were going to take over the world. I listened and took in all this information and was happy to be somehow involved in such adult conversations.
She had rather an interesting car a Renault R8 Gordini, one of the first ‘hot’ small cars; one day she offered to take me with her when she went to a ‘pick your own’ place a few miles away. It was the first time I had sat in the front passenger seat of a car as my parents had a very responsible attitude to my safety, I was only 5. Feeling grown up I thought I could engage her in the conversations I had over heard.
‘So when are the Rothschild’s going to take over the world?”
She turned her head from the road and her urban rally driving and fixed me with her a hard stare;
‘Its already happened’.
I’ve told this story a few times and I’ve started to wonder what is the modern day equivalent and is it actually possible for there to be a parallel governance structure in place. The concept of nation states, with borders and armies and economic tie ups between nations is as old as civilised man; has this model had its day?
In the interest of debate let me give you an alternative view of where the future and possibly current power is held in the world.
The worlds most powerful army does not belong to a single country or an alliance of countries working together; they fight only to protect their interpretation of the truth, they have no leader and act as a swarm. They are 100% cyber warfare; they are ‘Anonymous’.
The most powerful economic entity in the world is Blackrock, an investment fund that has controlling interests in all of the FTSE 100 companies and similar levels of control in other countries. Should they chose to they could wield more power than the elected governments.
Was Dr Little ahead of her time and predicting the future, or was she right and there have maybe always been parallel economic and governance structures in place?
