Okay, so anyone who has even partially delved into the world of conspiracy theories knows how the underlying cause of most everything that's occured since the early 20th century, and now into the 21st century, is to slowly create a one world government headed by the global elite/bankers/shadow governments/blah blah blah. WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, 9/11, and now the "planned economic crashes" around the world. I place that in quotes because I don't necessarily believe any of this, though I do find it interesting and keep an open mind, I'm not one to be brainwashed by the conspiracy theorists and more than big brother. Ultimately the point of this thread is for me to ask this question: What reasoning would anyone have to create a one world government? What's the end result? What's the reward? Where's the motivation? Why does anyone need that much power? I can understand evil deeds being done to catch a payday. Petty thieves. People who embezzle. Hell, even people selling out the jews in WW2 for cash. But it seems to me that once you reach a certain point money becomes no object. You can live like a king. Anything you want is yours. Live your life in luxury and be happy. Yet, if, IF, these conspiracy theorists are correct, why do these global elite that already effectively control most everything NEED any more control? Where's the motivation? Pure ego?
