There may be 7 great human powers in the world:

1) Military
2) Police and Military Intelligence
3) Mafia or organized crime
4) Corporations
5) Wealthy Elite with their Lawyers and Congressmen
6) Catholic Church
7) Personal Information databases and access to those databases

Take a look at the movie, Empire of the Wolves, and the Article by Matt Taibbi in the RollingStone,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empire_of_the_Wolves
http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/the-scam-wall-street-learned-from-the-mafia-20120620

The Empire of the Wolves starts out revealing that the Turkish Mafia controls imigration by gathering all the personal data about immigrants to Paris. In this way they can control and extort the migrants just as Chinese or other US Migrants who ended up as slave labor in the USA.

Notice how you don't have any "Privacy or Individual Rights anymore". That is because you now belong to anyone ....ANYONE THAT WANTS TO GOVERN YOU!!!!

My theory is that Human history is used by governments and 'Elites' to strategize and control peoples through the "Long Con".

1) Catholic Church controlled countries and granted rights and benefits to a select 'few'.
2) Chinese governments have had to control huge populations through the use of 'eminent domain' kinds of decrees and few individual rights.
3) Land Grantees were provided Land Charters in the USA (and pre USA) by decree to 'white selectees' by European monarchies.
4) Women did not have rights in the USA until the 20th Centry people protests.
5) Blacks could not vote till the 1960s when civil rights 'people power' freed them from state laws in the USA.
6) Mitt Romney has Millions of dollars in his IRA account which seems impossible since there were strict limits on dollars going in.
7) US Workers & Miners had no safety and labor rights till well into the 20th Century. There were corporate strike breakers/thugs and many deaths. OHSA Act was passed in 1970 which also signals the decline in wages and outsourcing/off-shoring manufacturing.
8) Banana Wars broke out 1898 in the Caribean, Central America and the US Military (Smedley Butler) up held the corporate interests abroad.
9) US Money funded both sides of the Russian Revolution, 3rd Reich, WWI and WWII as far as we know, and there was an attempted coup on FDR.
10) Some say Iranian Oil, persian Oil was the cause of WWI as German forces raced to build the 'Orental Express' from Berlin to Bagdad, a rail line to help secure the middle east oil.
11) Current US Military Expansion provides great protections for US Corporations and access to oil and other resources in South America, Africa, Middle East, and Asia. Oh and China is in those places too making deals to tie up the resources.
12) Money Changers or people that control Gold (see the Bible)
13) Central Banking originated in Europe, we have our 3rd Central Bank called the Fed, set up by Bankers.
14) Keep the people in the Dark about the Rulers Reasons for War, Conquest, Persecution, Drug War, Blacks going to Prison, War on Terror, Stop and Frisk, No Free Speech at the Capital.
15) Bankers, Corporations, Media, Wealthy can get settlements, have no charges filed, or tie up the court system.
16) Politicians only see issues related to corporations, banks and wealthy, but are blind to declining receipts of payroll taxes, declining wages, systemic unemployment.
17) Politicians don't see a problem with lobbying, signing legislation that is unread, Lobbyist written Legislation, and that there is no lobbying entity for 'Main Street'.
18) Politicians never see a conflict of interest, never recuse themselves...though campaign contributions are often a time to cozy up to people that want to influence each politician.
19) Did Banks learn from Mafia, Mafia learn from Senate, or Senate learn from Banks???

Now here's the rub....if you want to know what Corporation has access to you and your information, via all of the above named associations including all the credit reporting companies, the TSA, most of your Federal agencies i.e. Department of Transportation (all licensing information) Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security (as stated earlier) continue reading. Agreements have been made and authorization given by most corporations and companies that have employed you, as well as your signature agreeing to all these background checks and information that can be used against you....all this is being done by BIG BROTHER ACXIOM corporation in agreement with Clinton(s) and the Bush era.
Filings with the SEC also give demonstration as to how far reaching this company is...Europe, Africa, Asia (particularly China), Japan, Abu Dhabi, Australia, etc....Don't let their "technology services" label fool you. This is Wall Streets data gathering tool so that they "Wall Street" can be the puppet masters over everyone, including the government. Happy revelations everyone....nothing and no one is sacred/and or private here!

Exactly. I can't say it any better. But with a little history and imagination we know that Europeans and maybe Asians (I don't know) wanted to control people through 'slavery' to accomplish their goals and feed their need for 'status and power'.

Social Movements that we can name are often taught in 'ethnocentric' ways.

History as we know it is composed of royal fleets, slave ships, treasury galleys, and corporations - all seeking to subdue, kill and exploit labor and resources.

And yet we are taught that history is linear. That progress is constant and linear. And surely corporations are not trying to exploit us with credit, consumerism, and control over our personal data. We have come too far for that. We are an enlightened people.

Bull-oney.

You have checked into the 'Hotel California'. They have your health records, jobs records, spending habits, school records, state department records, military records, criminal records, phone records, travel records, your bills, your records of your parents, church records, etc.

Really need a George Carlin Rant to link here.

I think I am starting to see a different kind of understanding of what it means to have 'made it'. The people in banking made it when they were born and finished university. Politicians made it when they were born. Maybe you will make it when you get rich, then you don't have to worry about laws and regulations either.

This is ENRON all over again. ENRON SCANDAL broke in 2001. This means that the US Leadership and Banks have ignored, covered up, or participated in the LIBOR (or the USIBOR?) and in the possible manipulation of Oil Prices. ENRON was caught manipulating Energy prices which were being traded online through an Exchange (commodity exchange).

Of Course, Risk Assessments were done to consider if Oil Prices could or would be manipulated at least in 2001. THAT MEANS that Regulators and Financial Leaders have been COVERING UP the weakness and Risk for 11 Years AT LEAST. Of Course they have been Covering Up the Risk and Weakness of the US Federal Reserve since 1913 (total of 99 Years).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enron_scandal

"....Further alarm bells are being sounded by US regulators, who have already pointed out the rate-rigging scandal could spread to the oil market.

Scott O’Malia, a top official at the US Commodities Futures Commission, has drawn attention to the “striking similarity” between the potential for manipulating oil and Libor..."

"...Robert Halfon, who led a group of 100 MPs calling for lower fuel prices, said the matter “needs to be looked at by the Bank of England urgently”....In the study for global finance ministers, including George Osborne, the regulator warns that traders have opportunities to influence oil prices for their own profit..."

Bank of Commonwealth Ex-CEO, Officials Charged With Fraud

Bloomberg News, By Tom Schoenberg - Jul 12, 2012 12:06 PM CT

I beleive Sarbanes-Oxley Act, implemented after ENRON, is supposed to address this financial disclosure.

The former chief executive officer of Virginia’s Bank of the Commonwealth was among six people indicted for an alleged fraud conspiracy involving a coverup of the bank’s financial condition from 2008 to 2011.

Edward Woodard, 69, who ran the bank for more than three decades, was charged in a 25-count indictment unsealed today in federal court in Norfolk, Virginia. Three other former bank executives and two borrowers were also charged.

“Bank insiders were unwilling to fully acknowledge the deterioration in the bank’s loan portfolio,” according to the indictment. “They were concerned that the bank’s declining health would negatively impact investor and customer confidence, and that capital erosion would affect the bank’s ability to accept and renew brokered deposits.”

More on Link

From 2008 until it closed in 2011, the Norfolk-based bank lost almost $115 million. The bank’s failure will cost the U.S., through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., more than $260 million, according to the indictment.

Thanks. I always wonder why people don't want to add notes or links to prove their points.
