Banks, Global Warming, New World Order and Free Speech
The "Satanic new world order" conspiracy theories are a massive distortion of something that was quite innocent. The phrase was first used in recent political discourse by then-President George Bush Sr., who was talking about creating a global order "based on the rule of law rather than the law of the jungle." The Cold War had ended, and the world, which had for the previous four decades revolved around the Cold War, was changing rapidly. American statesmen, in whose favor the Cold War had ended, were seeking to give the world a different direction in light of the new realities.
Now one would think that people in places such as America, Australia and New Zealand, who have been given the right to free speech, would value it enough to use it responsibly; but no. We have conmen portraying global warming as a hoax; conmen claiming that a group of London banks is running everything; conmen claiming that the world is run by a Satanic New World Order conspiracy that of course involves everyone except themselves. It is true that, for as long as there is free speech, these people are free to say what they want to say. It is however possible to use the same free speech to respond to their absurdities.
Enclosed is a link to a comprehensive response I have written to the arguments that are made by hoaxers. They keep coming up with one lie after another; and I, like a number of others, have researched their lies and came up with refutations to them. I am sure that they will continue with these and many other new falsehoods; however the reader will not have to fall for them.
Regarding the banks, one doesn't need conspiracy theories to realize how entities with massive amounts of capital could influence the political process. The problem is thinking that only the banks have political power. There are any number of entities and individuals with power of one kind or another. Banks are one set of such entities, but they are far from the only one.
As far as "Satanic new world order" conspiracy theories are concerned: Satan had nothing to do with it. The idea was first articulated in modern discourse by a Christian Republican President, at the time that the world was changing from being based around the Cold War to being based mainly around international economics. It had been a major victory for USA, and they were looking for a peace dividend that came with opening of markets all around the world and the cessation of Cold War hostilities. It's pure political common sense, and there's nothing Satanic about it.
One negative side effect of democratic institutions is that it gives conmen and scoundrels the right to spread falsehoods. This side effect is fixed by people of conscience responding to these falsehoods and telling people the truth. Here is one article to that effect, and I hope that there be many others from people around the world to address these irresponsible conspiracy theories and the conmen who are behind them.
