Mother Nature and Father Time. As far as I’m concerned, they control it all.

So far as I can tell, a group of corporate oligarchs who sit on the boards of banks, energy companies, media companies, etc.

oooh. oooh. oooh. I know.

It’s the Bilderburg Group. All the conspiracy websites told me so. And they’re in cahoots with the Illuminati who go all the way back to their beginnings as the Knights Templar.

@Buttonstc – you laugh, but those people (the Bilderburgs) are a little scary! I’m inclined to believe that one! :) (They said the Tri-Lateral Commission didn’t exist, either!)

We, the people. It’s our world.

I don’t think so, Matt. But I like your optimism!!!

If you want to change something about the world, be the change you want to see. This is more than optimism. It’s the idea that we have the means to act. Being a victim blaming others is easier.
