The supposed motives of those individuals said to be part of that elite scheming group known as the Illuminati–with numerous ties to other secretive organizations such as the Freemasons and International Banking Cartels–to establish a New World Order of absolute control and subservience on the world has been documented extensively in various websites, books, even movies and documentaries. Subset of this grand conspiracy are many sub-lore concerning various, often suspicious and inexplicable events concerning economic, political, social, even science and health issues and spanning the whole of human history from the inception of homo sapiens and throughout the rise and fall of various human civilizations.
Having digested a good number of these interesting, often contradictory, and sometimes humorous allegations–has prompted me to ask the obvious question: does it have anything to do with me?
I understand the sometimes fanatic appeal of conspiracy theories to Americans–as the supposed key players of the conspiracies are American, and some European powers. But for a regular Filipina like myself and perhaps for many Asians as well, all of these Illuminati and NWO gibberish are simply part of American pop culture. The machinations of these elite groups can be said to inflict hell on the otherwise comfortable and excessive lifestyles of the west, but to Asians like myself, who regularly witness “crap” on the street, the idea isn’t as compelling.
This is why I am putting up this website. I’m not here to reinvent the wheel or regurgitate already redundant information available to everyone about these nefarious conspiracies. I’m here to see if these ideas can possibly apply to a Third World country already plagued with a lot of problems of its own.
After all, the New World Order supposedly spans the entire globe–so what role can countries such as the Philippines possibly have in such a utopia? Logically, since the progenitors of the plot are arguably from the west, that can’t be good for countries far from the centers of power…
Then again, even without the conspiracies, Third World is already on the losing end of the Current World Order, so part of my curiosity is: can it get worse?
In a way, by checking if the New World Order can apply to the Philippines–we can validate the trueness of the “global” intent behind the conspiracy theory. Otherwise, we shouldn’t call it New World Order–just New American-European Order.
Apart from this, this is also not to say that there aren’t any conspiracies or anything resembling conspiracies already occurring in the Philippines. Asking whether these “localized” issues have any link to the Illuminati or the New World Order is an interesting intellectual exercise as well.
