The Council of Foreign Relations is a group of people (politicians, businessmen, bankers, etc.) who plan the foreign policy of the United States. Their ideas for the most part have been of a neoconservative nature enforcing a system by which a "New World Order" can be established. Bankers and corporations are strengthened by this group and they disregard the struggles of the "regular" person. It is basically a bunch of "aristocrats" doing whatever they can to hold a tight grip on the financial and political systems of the world, keeping people and countries in debt.
The Council of Foreign Relations is tightly linked to the Federal Reserve Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the Bilderberg Group. People who are members of the CFR are often members of the IMF and/or the Bilderberg Group. The financial slavery of the "common" man and woman will not end as long as undemocratic and secretive "groups" of people such as these continue to exist and make decisions for the entire world.
