Hey! Randy

There is Nothing to See Here

Superclass, The Global Elite and the World They are Building David J.Rothkopf New York : Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2008.

This book is a diversion. It diverts our attention away from the movement toward a one world government by telling us that the principals and the organizations that work for that end are really just a bunch of regular billionaires and famous people who only want to help the less fortunate. Who would dare doubt Rothkopf? He would know. He was a founding manager of Kissinger and Associates.

Rothkopf mentions all the usual places: Bilderberg, Davos, Bohemian Grove, telling us that they are just benign gatherings of like minded people trying to be of service to the world. It is all quite innocent. There is nothing to see here, secrecy not withstanding. Move along.

Rothkopf is not naive. He would not have made it to the inside(?) circle of the power elite by being anything but a player. He is doing his job. But he does not do it very well. The book is wooden. The prose dry. The story unconvincing. His only good line is “I am convinced that the world most mind altering drug is oil.” This is the truest thing he says. It is here that Rothkopf give his only criticism of the elite. It is the relationship of the major oil companies to the various tyrants who control the countries with the oil reserves. It is difficult to defend this, so Rothkopf does not get any points for his effort.

Rothkopf mentions lots of the players in the one world game. In fact, the name dropping in this book is the most annoying feature. It is a form of self-certification: see, I have been there and know them. It does not work.

I suggest that the book be skimmed by those interested in the defenses being put forth by the elites’ operators. That this book is in existence tells us something unintentional: they are scared. Otherwise, there is nothing to see here.
