Power, sex and money; the three things that control men. They are the three pillars on which most of society is built, fuelled by greed. If there's one thing the past can teach us, then it's that we never change. The same things that those long gone were slaves to still stand strong. The hunger for possession spurred the slave trade and colonisation, we still obey it's laws with our new consumerist world. Lust still holds many a heart captive, I need not go into this one. Then there's power, the one thing all long for with the whole being. He who has power, often has money, and sex. Seriously, just google "Amsterdam Red Light District" if you don't see the link.
Many have attempted to seize this might for themselves. These are the men that shaped history, that caused the horrors we now learn about today. Men like Alexander the Great, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Genghis Kahn are all examples of men who were born to rule and command. One by one they have all failed however, beaten at their own games. Many say "we never learn", this isn't true. This type of man still lingers around today, except it's now a different game with new rules and strategies. They know they have to work together to take control, otherwise they'll fall like all those that hit the ground before them.
This is why the Illuminati exists.
A group, a cult you could say, of men who know deep inside that they were made to rule. Bankers, multi-millionaires, politicians and drug lords all belong to this group. They manipulate the economy, feeding themselves with the riches of this planet. Money is power, a saying all know. They know this too, and they use it as their main weapon.
Don't believe me? Tough, it's not me stuck with 7 others trying to lynch them with good ol' pitchforks and torches.
