While the media obsesses on Donald Trump and the horse race that is the 2016 presidential primary season, real serious stuff is happening in the world which, too often, goes unreported.
Beyond this veil of mainstream media distraction is a global elite who, behind the scenes, pull the strings of puppets that are our world leaders, and, in doing so, determine the state of international affairs.
An inside view of how the world really runs requires identifying who its true rulers are. To that end, I will be blogging – in collaboration with Robert Lindsay – about these players, and what they do. For two to three months, Lindsay and I will feature a different world ruler each week on his website, “Beyond Highbrow”. It is a series we hope our readers will benefit from.
