Money is the catalyst for control. If they can influence you then they can control what you wear, eat, drink, smoke, see, buy and vote for. Only Hollywood moguls have the power to control what we watch, the media tries to influence our decisions and thus to make our choices for us. Those who control the money have to control the people to keep buying their goods to keep them in control. A street thug with very little talent can gain power to influence young minds with his negative often violent music because of money which gives him the exposure.
As long as we keep giving them power by funding their projects then the brain washing control will continue and they know it.
