Where does the decision making power of the world truly lie? Are world leaders such as presidents, prime ministers and heads of state merely place-people and figureheads, put into positions of power by those that control them from the shadows? Is there truly a secret “shadow government” that operates clandestinely? Do leaders that appear to be in positions of power really call the shots or are they led by decision-makers that do not appear in the public spotlight? It seems that the “golden rule” has always been in place, whereas: he who has the gold makes the rules.
