Who exactly are the most powerful families controlling the world?
A question like this usually attracts eye-rolls, or conspiracy theorists waxing lyrical about the Illuminati (“the enlightened ones”). You may not even claim to care, but chances are its prime time to question the current state of play in the world. It’s time to question governments obsessed with forcing regime changes and politicizing the repercussions of poorly-managed interventions into global nightmares such as ISIS, the European refugee crisis, the rise of far-right politics, and of course – the killing of thousands of innocent civilians. Question why governments allow power to accumulate and be wielded without culpability by a mere handful of companies, creating a virtual monopoly that dominates the global economy.
The Occupy movement of 2011 dared to question social and economic inequality. Sadly, it suffered from a lack of focus and never quite managed to sustain the huge momentum it had initially built-up. It did manage to enlighten the public about the gross mismanagement and cavalier attitude towards financial risks undertaken by major banks and financial institutions, and it did considerable damage to Wall Street’s reputation – one that wasn’t exactly pristine to begin with. In the aftermath of the financial crisis, offending banks still continue grappling with billion dollar lawsuits. But no head honcho has yet been prosecuted. In fact, accusations against alleged wrongdoers haven’t even made it to court, while whistle-blowers have been marginalized or fired.
