In 1973, the Trilateral Commission was founded with the goal of creating a new international economic order. Patrick Wood argues that their secret endeavor is to own and control all of the major resources of the world. He explains that their collusion enabled a technocracy to form as a major economic system, managed by scientists and engineers, to become a new world order, of sorts. This includes intricate web of controls that have been put in place through the digital domain, on every financial institution from banks to commercial sales. He cautions us that the technocracy has gained so much power that the only thing that may be able stop them is we the people.
