I think another powerful force besides 'feminism' that the illuminati have used is urbanization
this is just a theory in progress so bear with me, but i suspect that through the subsidizing of big agro farms, and putting family farms out of business, the illuminati were able to subvert the natural lives we were intented to lead (i.e. being close to nature, setting down roots where you had multi-generational families living in close proximity, producing organic food, vibrant local economies, etc) and instead have herded us into depressing, grey, urban prisons, where we must temper our sheer boredom and restlessness with consumerism.
other people have written extensively about how the nature of economies have changed, from that of local household economy, to a 'world economy' so I won't belabour the point.
Suffice to say, I think being forced to live in an urban environment and to work a non-traditional job (office work) is a major thing that made us ripe for domination.
per usual, i probably didn't articulate this very well, but i wanted to write it down before i forgot and had to head to class. :-P
everyone feel free to add to what i just said
\"six or seven men can plunge the nation into war, or, what is perhaps equally disastrous, commit it to entangling alliances without consulting Parliament at all.\"
