This paper aims to summarize the major theoretical elements in the definition of a global ruling class. It then examines how neoconservatives in the USA took power and used regime change to install US-friendly governments in other regions. A strategy of tension is used to press the American population into conformity. But the real revolution is to what extent factual politics escape any attempt to democratic control.
The research relies on case studies of material already published and provides a synthesis.
Three case studies show how far the Deep State already goes. Democracy is on the brink of survival.
This paper is an original hypothesis of the potential end of democracy as we know it, supported by empirical data.
