June 29, 2011�William Engdahl, who has written on issues of energy, politics and economics for more than 30 years, shared his contention that a group of global elite control the world's resources. There are about 150,000 to 200,000 families "who really see themselves as gods and the rest of us as simply worker bees or ants to be crushed if we get in their way," he commented. They have been bred not to care about those outside their class and have a pathological desire for power, as well as an agenda to reduce the world's population, he outlined.

With the reduction of civil liberties in the wake of 9-11, fear is the dominant emotion, and the elite use that fear to manipulate us, Engdahl suggested. He also spoke about how the mythos of oil scarcity was used to drive up prices, and the notion of GMO foods and patented seeds got its start at the Rockefeller Foundation, under the concept of "agribusiness." He shared a quote from Henry Kissinger that aptly shows the potential for misuses of power: "Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people."
