  •  When wealth becomes this concentrated... (3+ / 0-)

    what do you expect?

    Who is at the center of these kinds of things like the austerity policies, the cops in riot gear that look the same from one country to another and use the same formations and techniques?
    How many multi-billionaires are there and how hard would it be for them to coordinate their activities?  At the same time, how many people, including very powerful people in terms of their governmental or corporate title, are under their effective control so that the decisions made by a few are magnified greatly in power?

    And when wealth is that concentrated, who threatens whom?  Do the ultra-rich really compete with each other for power and influence?  Or is it necessary for them to band together to ward off the greater threat from the 99%?

    It seems to me at least naive if not irrational to dismiss the possibility, indeed the likelihood, of international conspiracy among the 1%.

    As to the old canard that large conspiracies must end up being exposed as the leak possibilities increase geometrically, why do we see such incredibly paranoid concern with leaks?
