Public forum wise, I think the U.N. are the ones to be watchful of power wise.
Many movers and shakers are members of lodges. There's no doubt about it. They likely don't run the show, though. They might be among those who do. It's likely that corporations and moguls call many of the shots, but they need bankers to do so. That's why financial interests probably are at the top of the food chain. It's like the old joke about the golden rule. Whoever has the gold, rules.
