If you’re new to this absolutely outlandish claim, I invite you to see my compilation of evidence for the truth of it. If you set aside your reflexive denial for just a moment and utilize the same suspension of disbelief mechanisms that you use to watch movies (or the fake news), you can easily see that the primary reason it’s a plausible scenario is that it’s a very plausible and exceedingly powerful business model. Just add a few decades and a few trillion dollars and you can readily see the trouble we’re in. http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2014/12/franklin-coverup-the-white-house-call-boy-ring/
You don’t have to accept this guy’s theistic explanation of the phenomenon (although I think there’s a fair amount of biocomplexity theory to back it up) to recognize that to the extent that the evil doers in this world accept a theistic belief system, it would have to be satanism. Which came first, physical reality or spirit? My guess is that they arose simultaneously. If so, then the existence of evil in this world demonstrates the existence the self-reinforcing, collectively autocatalytic entities which manifest through it.
We have formed our present understanding of evolution as a process of ever-increasing ability to dominate the environment and each other. This definition reflects the competition for external power that is generated by fear. Our deeper understanding leads us to a power that loves life in every form that it appears, a power that does not judge what it encounters, a power that perceives meaningfulness and purpose in the smallest details upon the Earth. This is authentic power.

Even the rockefellers recognized the value of cooperation over competition. That’s why the peasants are indoctrinated in the darwinian model of cutthroat competition. That’s why we are the slaves and they are the masters.
