To follow up on the last post, I find this article very instructive. Here we have the Roman Catholic Church turning on its own priests in the Vatican! Talk about distrust! And it reminds me of the German Central Bank turning on its fellows (and see this), not trusting that the New York Fed has the gold it claims to have, so calling its bluff by asking to repatriate its physical gold.
It appears that the cabal begins to undergo the inevitable process of cannabalization that attends attitudes and actions that serve only the few at the expense of the many.
Thanks to americankabuki for the pointer.
