Who Really Runs This Planet: Organized Crime’s Nefarious Grip On Humanity

(A reader asked me in recent days what I think Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping want. My answer follows.)

I will eventually get to your question that has to do with what Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin want, but first let me propose that all mainstream media commentators and analysts and virtually all alternative media personalities are profoundly misstating and misapprehending how the world really works, and has worked for a very, very long time.

In brief, in terms of how most so-called political entities are organized internally, and also externally in their relations with each other, I would suggest that the main analytical unit that best applies ought to be that of:


This applies whether discussing kingdoms and bloodline, allegedly “royal” families, or so-called republics, territories, states, provinces, etc.

I see formal political units, such as so-called “nation-states” as being facades of convenience, under which competing, organized criminal factions vie for dominance and control, or alternatively cooperate for control, on the premise that half a loaf is better than none. This has been the modus operandi for a very, very, very long time.

Forget about buzz words like “citizen participation, representative democracy, the will of the people, human rights” and so forth. They are mere propaganda carefully designed to obfuscate the truth.

In our era, local, national and international or transnational mafias run the world. They may be of two types: officially licit, or illicit, though the distinctions are often arbitrary. But they are all rapacious, mendacious, murderous, exploitive, self-serving, parasitic and fundamentally entropic in nature.

Just off the top of my head I would propose as a working schema:

A) Licit mafias

  • kingdoms, republics, nation-states, provinces, territories
  • banking organizations – World Bank, IMF, BIS, Deutsche Bank, Federal Reserve, etc.
  • commercial corporations – Chevron, Shell, Boeing, MicroSoft, etc.
  • taxation agencies – the IRS, etc.
  • sporting bodies – FIFA, WADA, Olympic Games, etc.
  • political and military alliances and treaty organizations – NATO, E.U., U.N., Arab League, OAS, etc.
  • police agencies – Interpol, FBI, etc.
  • licensed casinos
  • institutional religions

2) Illicit mafias

  • Sicilian Cosa Nostra
  • Hong Kong Triads
  • Japanese Yakuza
  • Latin American narco-cartels
  • Russian-Jewish mob
  • prison gangs
  • motorcycle gangs

You can think of other examples, though in reality, there is a huge blurring of the lines of demarcation between the licit and illicit categories. They both use each other, even when they are ostensibly diametrically opposed.
