A friend of mine recently commented on my Facebook profile (we were discussing yesterday’s post about Kingism is the new McCarthyism) that Peter King is a puppet for the new world order.
My first thought was that he was being paranoid and seeing a world-wide conspiracy where none exists. Here is what I was originally going to say in response to his comments:
While I agree there does seem to be a concerted effort to effect sweeping changes, I do not attribute these changes to any “New World Order” movement. Rather I attribute them to the usual seesaw movements that occur when the parties shift in power. It happened in 2000 when Bush came into office and it happened again when Obama came into office. These political and ideological shifts are, if anything, a push back against the current ruling party.
However, the more I thought about it, the more there does seem to be evidence to support his statement [of the existence of a world-wide conspiracy].
So, I thought I’d open the topic up here and see what everyone else thinks. Do you think there is a “New World Order” out there manipulating events to bring about their own idea of utopia? Answer the poll question, then, if you would, leave a comment telling me your thoughts.
As I said above, my first thought was to dismiss the idea that any group of people are/were manipulating events to fulfill their own agenda. The more I look at world events, though, the more I see what could be the fine hand of manipulation guiding the world towards some, possibly nefarious, place. Coincidences, however, have occurred before and what I am seeing could be another example of these coincidences. In short, pencil me in for a solid “Maybe.”
Where do you stand?
