Only if you think nine thousand million folks are a bunch of twerps barely able to think for themselves let alone do anything, dependent incapable and locked-in to their life in such a way that they couldn’t possibly have a second thing in life to do for themselves.
I know there have been conspiracy theorists who have hypothesised all sorts, that there is a small batch of big dudes in black formal wear smoking cigars in a darkened room in front of a 50’s style projector screen and making plans on humanities behalf. But a lot of these ‘theorists’ believe in God and have God-delusions, have a perceived control over their affairs of the future and feel particularly special for various reasons e.g. a special privileged education, popular, good looking, personable characters and a family with good paying jobs etc.
My opinion about evolution and the natural-laws is, we can’t know the future, actually there is a final future which is written, like a read-only computer file, but ultimately we make decisions and judgements and choose various different things. It would not even take too much to even overthrow a government, even one as large as the USA government. There is many more of us than there is of them and we pay them, they work for us, they are civil servants. To reckon that they could somehow wield the might to influence tens of millions of thinking, actioning folks, who are strongly independent and capable of as much if not more, especially together, is a really strange idea. The only reason world war even happened is because the normal men talked themselves into justifying helping and fighting. For a long time we ignored Germany, as a problem going on over there which we really would rather not get involved in. The truth about what we are prepared to do and not do for our country and our fellow countrymen is we are only prepare to do en mass what is right and justifiable. There will always be delusional men who invent mini machinations and cause little isolated incidents etc., but to actually do anything substantial requires much greater forces.
So... that said, if they were for example drugged and hypnotically influenced like the Apollo 11 crew were, to follow an agenda for 50 years. That may go some way to unpleasantness yes, it may even be true, but tens of millions of capitalist thinking folks, we don’t just sit around and blindly follow things like zombies, we think about what we are doing and we move together for the greater good. Sure, it could have happened, in theory. But there is so many bad things all up and down history and we have so little time that it probably would of just blended into the background. Chances are these 0.01% were eventually shouted down by ten million thinking men, with such ferocity and might that they sharted their underwear and collapsed on floor.
They have to lead by consent, ‘we’ have to lead by consent, it has to be done honestly because they can’t get away with anything, ten million minds will fathom everything. It has to be done by popular opinion and lead by populists, it has to be a decent morally viable idea, or else the alternative is to delude the public, but that can get very dicey if you look at how the Nazi’s deluded themselves, it doesn’t work well on really any level does it.
It is obvious that USA has been attacking various nations for some sort of hegemony agenda. But this is just the military commanders, and it is doing nothing for the USA citizens who pay for it, it is only going to come back eventually to a civil war, because much of the world hates Americans now, even though they have never met, because of the way USA has been sending military to various places for decades and bombing civilians towns and communities, leaving nothing and doing nothing for the situation. And this had lead to many conspiracy theorists too.
