CONSPIRACIES: Silent and Noisy (Ronald Hilton, USA, 02/18/01 12:43 am)

There have long been mutterings about a conspiracy involving the Council on Foreign Relations, but the recent flsurry about its going back to the Knights Templar and the Free Masons was a surprise. It was caused by the publication in 2001 of Jim Marrs, Rule by Secrecy. He was known mostly for his earlier book, Crossfire: The Plot that Killed Kennedy, which was made into a film. He is the conspiracy theorist par excellence, the kind of person we might dismiss as a nut. However, when nnterviewed for an hour on C-Span, he came across as being very well-documented and reasonable; this is not to endorse his theories. While the focal point is the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberg Group, the conspiracy goes back to the Pyramids and into the hypotheticsl future in which the UN could have its troops invade the US, seize an individual, and bring him fr trial before the International War Crimes Court, a possibility so remote that it casts doubt on Marrs' whole interpretation of history. Mexico is a country in which WAIS has a special interst, and the Ford Foundation, part of the grand conspiracy, is active there.

Jim Marrs is a newsman based in Fort Worth, Texas, but he is no supporter ob President George W. Bush. Going back to his grandfather, the Bush family has been part of the Great Conspiracy. Among WAISers are some who belong to the Concil on Foreign Relations and others who live in Texas. It would be interesting to know how the judge Jim Marr and his theories.

In contrast with this secret conspiracy are the noisy demonstrators who disrujpt meetings on globalization and make rational discourse impossible. We have often raised the question as to who supports finncially groups of Indians from various Amerucan countries who travel to places like Geneva to stage a demonstration, and the mobs of angry and presumably not affluent young men who create havoc at globalization conferences.

An earlier posting mentioned wealthy people in Northern California and the Ruckus society of Berkeley. Now Insight (2/12/01) has a well-documented article "'Rent-a-Mobs' Descend on D.C." It describes a New York-based organization, the International Action Center, supported by labor unions, which has been busy setting up a network of fifty organizations across the country.

Globalization is thus depicted as the secret plot of the silent conspiracy and is the target of the noisy conspirators. Jim Marrs claims t have unmasked thr former. What does he think of the latter? His TV interview attracted a lot of viewers. Their questions showed were strikingly well-informed. However, One went so far as to say that C-Span was part of the Grand Conspiracy. The host of the program politely refuted this wild rfemark, which shows that people can be well-informed and crazy. The program has had an impact on me. I shall look at my innocent colleagues and wonder: Are they part of the Grand Conspiracy?
