    I highly doubt it. If such a secret organization exists, they really suck at the whole "secret organization" thing if people have heard of them. Besides, rich guys don't even need a secret organization to rule the world--they do it openly, unashamedly, and with more melodramatic malice than any Saturday morning cartoon villain ever could (I'm looking at you, Rupert Murdoch and Koch brothers).

    No. Life is a personal journey.
    In the words of William Ernest Henley:
    "I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul."
    Liberals and conservatives continue to exist when opposition parties are in power. Political leadership has little bearing on how one thinks and believes. Freedom means having the ability to not conform.
    There is no upside to believing one's life is not their own to do with as they choose. The real conspiracy is believing you can't change your fortunes in life with wise decisions and effort on your part.
    The Illuminati is a theory espoused by those who are unhappy.

    There are certainly people who are connected financially. As far as leaning things in their favor, of course they do. Do they practice mind control or esoteric secrets to control the masses behavior and buying decisions? Obviously they do. Just study televison for a week. The elite are oraganized. They may not go by the name illuminati any more. But world domination is clearly the goal.
