In his book Superclass, the former Kissinger and Associates managing director Philip Rothkopf details the existence of a global power elite numbering not more than 6,000 – those movers and shakers that treat national boundaries as mere lines on a map, see each other at the World Economic Forum in Davos, hobnob at The Bilderberg group or the G20 or climate conferences. Rothkopf says it must be thus, making only a plea for a form of a modern noblesse oblige – that the unofficial oligarchy look out for the little guy, too. Historically speaking, that’s not a good bet. So the book is explicit – there exists a class, a jetset clique that shapes policy and has a very tenuous line of accountability to the public. The rockstars of the state, financial, and corporate worlds combined, these powerbrokers of ‘governance’ drain sovereignty from their client states and insist on economic micromanagement on their terms. That’s not ‘free market’. On Parliament Hill, this is called backroom dealing and it has no place in a free republic at any level of government.
