You probably remember the online outrage over the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) copyright enforcement proposal. Last week, the Department of Commerce's Internet Policy Task Force released a report on digital copyright policy that endorsed one piece of the controversial proposal: making the streaming of copyrighted works a felony.

This man has been such a deception.

There is no need for one puppet-master to call all the shots. All that is needed is a pyramidal hierarchical structure with a few well positioned like minded individuals(fellow travelers) at each level of the structure.
In world events, the American president is but a task-master for the real powers that be and a long way from the apex of world power.


It would still be just as implausible though. Of course, there are some corrupt people in positions of power, but if there were a group of them hellbent on world domination, AND across multiple administrations and party lines, it would be damn hard to keep that a secret. And even assuming they could keep it a secret (which in itself is highly unlikely) any group of individuals that hungry for power would probably never cooperate with each other. Instead, they would most likely destroy each other, like the Sith did in Star Wars.
