I've always thought that conspiracy theories were started and passed on by nut jobs. And maybe some of them are but I am almost fully convinced that the Illuminati are real and their plan is to bring about a global economic collapse, so that they can install a new one and control the world. I believe that the events of this world have been orchestrated for years. Is it just a coincidence that every POTUS came from a Royal European lineage and that 35 of them all came from the same lineage? What do you think? Do you believe that the Illuminati is real?
After doing extensive research on my family tree, I have found that I am descended from a number of Royal European families. I would hazard a guess that most of us hailing from Europe could ultimately say the same (think intermarriage + exponential math).
As to the existence of a conspiracy to control the world: sure, its probably true. We just have to keep throwin the spanners.
