One of the most popular conspiracy theories of my generation is that of the “New World Order.”
If someone trashes the “Trilateral Commission,” or the “Bilderberg Group,” or the United Nations, chances are they’re being influenced by this theory, which as Wikipedia notes) is becoming increasingly common on the Tea Party Right.
