But the dark path can be quite dark, and although indoctrination and other kinds of limbic conditioning help form �cohesion� in societies, in GC and other criminal enterprises the carrots and sticks uniting those organizations can be breathtaking.� I avoid knowing very much about it, as that knowledge can be damaging to a normal person�s psyche.� I was damaged by merely studying the Jewish Holocaust, the genocide of the Western Hemisphere�s natives, and today�s recent and continuing imperial genocides inflicted by my nation.� Those diabolical global organizations are always in danger of fragmenting as everybody vies for wealth and power, and I doubt that there is an unbroken line of conspiring elites that stretches back to civilization�s beginnings.� They have risen and fallen along with their civilizations, and they could only play a regional game at most.� However, with Europe�s conquest of the world, power-addicted elites could begin thinking on a global scale for the first time.� I would not be surprised to discover that some ultra-elite organizations have a pedigree that stretches back for centuries, and conspiracists have long traced those lineages.� But my impression is that turnover regularly happens at the top, which is generally beyond the purview of conspiracists.� With retail dynasties (Rome, Mayans, European royalty, China, etc.), they could trust relatives more than others, so heredity played a role, and apparently also does with the GCs.� A close relative nearly tried to recruit me into the family �business,� and his employers played at a higher level than John Perkins�s employers did, but it still seemed down a level or two from the GCs� stratum.

All continental and even most island ecosystems that humans soon invaded contained predators, but they would have been as ill-equipped to deal with the newcomers as their prey. �They were capable of defending themselves, so were probably rarely hunted except by the most foolish young men. �No predator on Earth would have wanted to confront fire-wielding humans with their array of weaponry and group skills.� The megafauna predators went extinct when their prey did, and probably not because of much direct human violence.

In an effort to create a more suitable definition it may be more efficacious for us to work backwards, from the particulars to the abstract. For example, what does the encounter between Hernándo Cortés and Moctezuma II mean for Mexicans today? Fought in perhaps the later 8th century between the two main communities of Euboea, Chalcis and Eretria, it took its name from the fertile Lelantine Plain, which separates the cities and includes the site of Lefkandi. (It is an interesting modern suggestion that Lefkandi itself is the site of Old Eretria, abandoned about 700 bce in favour of the classical site Eretria at the east end of the plain, perhaps as a consequence of Eretria’s defeat in the war.
