The Secret Cabal of the Harmonious Order
Many people around the world believe that there is a group of well connected international people that control world governments and guide the direction the world economy and culture are going. For example, paranoid Arvorched believe that the world is actually run by the Gwaedeth, a branch of the pagan church known as the "seers". Others have called them the Seven Sages of the Bamboo Grove, the Elect, the Illuminati, the Secret Cabal, the Order of Knights Vigilant and the Hidden Hand. Naturally, nothing could be further from the truth, and most Intelligent Persons sweep such notions quietly under the most convenient carpet.
