Unless you're willing to see it and approach the topic with an open mind you probably won't. You're asking this question wanting people to agree with you because your mind is already made up on the matter. But unless you're willing to listen to what evidence is put forward you'll just keep denying it. To see what all these "conspiracy theorists" see you'd need open your mind and investigate the matter thoroughly. Anyone can look up wikipedia and say they've investigated it, but unless you do a thorough investigation, you're not going to see it.
You probably don't want to read the rest of this because I'm disagreeing with you and I'm going to try and put small bits of evidence forward. I understand if you're only willing to hear a one sided argument.
The same applies to the European banks. For over 200 years they Rothschilds have been operating the European Banks including the Vatican.
It's the modern understanding that there is no cure for cancer or the common cold or any other virus, but think of the ramifications if there were a cure. How many businesses rely on people's illness for profit? Why do pharmaceutical treat symptoms of the disease rather then fight the disease itself? If there was a simple cure, how many companies would go out of business?
Why is it that the FDA never pass herbal treatments for illnesses? Unless you have glicoma, it's illegal to smoke marijuana. It's because Marijuana is illegal and most other plants are not. How did the Native Americans fight diseases? With herbal remedies; the FDA won't accept herbal remedies because they cannot be taxed and people would rather grow it themselves if they knew what to use.
We're in 2012 and still rely on Fossil Fuels. John D. Rockefeller started his Standard Oil Company in 1870 and since that time has created a monopoly; Standard Oil owns BP, Mobil, Chevron, Texico, Shell, etc. So where we think we're getting various companies competing, a lot of them are all owned by the same company. The same applies to the media; 75% of the US media courses through Rockefeller Center and Astor Plaza, New York. You can even look up the consolidation of the media, within 25 years, 50 media companies were all consolidated into 5 by buying out competitive new sources. When only 5 companies are running the newspaper outlets and network television media, guarantee they have the power censor certain stories.
Suppose someone came up with an alternative to fossil fuels. Even the sun runs on hydrogen; inventions have been made that separate hydrogen and oxygen molecules from water. Such inventions are rarely advertised through the media because an engine could be made to run off of water in the process. This is the reason we rarely hear about Nikola Tesla in school. Tesla was a wonder-worker in the early 20th Century and created all types of energy saving inventions. He created Alternating Currents for god's sakes and most history books won't cover him. Before Tesla worked with Westinghouse he was being funded by JP Morgan to create the wireless radio. Tesla was also planning on creating Free Energy by utilizing the Earth's magnetic field as a source of electricity. Where the Earth creates its own magnetic field, there would be no way to measure the amount used, thus no profit to be made. It would've put the oil companies out of business.
The Morgan and Rockefeller families are the owners of the Federal Reserve. This Central Bank is owned by independent families and not the government. The name usually fools people, but these private banking families own the monetary system by controlling the Federal Reserve. Do you know how the banking cartel works? No. The truth is that only 4% of the population actually understand how the monetary system works. All the numbers and banking terminology are meant to confuse. Because if people knew how the monetary system worked they would be outraged to know the government cashed in all its gold to create debt.
Why is it we haven't heard about people like Nikola Tesla in school, or learn how the banking system operates, or the fact that so many of America's founding fathers were indeed Freemasons? The General Board of Education was created by the government but funded by the John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie. The Education Board stayed alive so long because it was funded by the Rockefellers and in 1970 was bought by the Rockefeller Foundation. The curriculum of the school systems are decided by a select few individuals.
