Yup. Disturbed’s cover of “Land of Confusion” is pretty on-point with that idea.

Yes, and interestingly, no. The video, which seems to track a lot of leftist thinking, is that wars are all about money, and that the UN and (I guess) G7 and other organizations are the tools of the transnational billionaires.

It’s this sort of reductionist economic thinking that is another type of horseshoe theory: both the billionaires and the left see everything in the world in terms of money. There is no ethnic or racial strife, or historical grievance, that cause wars, apparently, and the world’s governments are all united in one big cabal under the Great God Money.

Also, the mashing together of the Big Money transnational rich, who use countries and their banks and their citizenships as tools to be exploited and discarded, with international organizations which work through governments completely tied to their individual nations. They’re not the same thing, and when international organizations do get pressured by Big Money, it’s via specific national governments, not through the organization itself.

You only have to look at the Trump years, what kind of people back Trump, and how Trump treated international organizations, to understand how off base this all is. Anyway.
