    Thank you for all the digging to find these ties. These relationships are massively complex and dynamic, so the difficulty of finding so many puzzle pieces must be formidable.

    I think these charts can form the foundation of a sequel to this post to describe the actual methods used by the nodes on the charts to undermine our society. A lot has been written on how they corrupt democracy, but at least equally effective has been the carpet-bombing of tweets and emails into every internet device across the countryside. The incessant onslaught of hateful idiocy in short, simple phrases and imagery disrupts normal thoughts by infusing fear and loathing and providing targets to attack. The strategy seems to be designed by professional social scientists to efficiently transplant reptilian fear and hostility into otherwise good people.

    I'd like to see an investigation into how that's done.

    A revolutionary and evolutionary idea: Too many people - too much consumption.
