The tragic assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 was a formative event for an entire generation, and its impact continues to reverberate through the decades since. To this day, many questions remain unanswered as to who or what lay behind the events of that fateful day, and the official investigation has left many unsatisfied. Consequently, dozens of conspiracy-based materials have been produced which seek to unravel this greatest of American mysteries.
Among these is Everything Is A Rich Man’s Trick, an ambitious documentary which examines the assassination from a unique angle – that of powerful figures within industry who sought to manipulate world events for their own benefit and ensure anonymity for their actions. Written and narrated by Francis Richard Conolly, the film begins with World War I when industrialists first discovered how much they could reap from war-mongering policies. Through exhaustive research, Conolly unpacks his argument that these people formed a secret society aimed at maintaining control over various aspects of the world’s affairs, from forming Nazism to manipulating US foreign policy leading up to the 9/11 attacks.
The election of JFK in 1960 was seen as a threat by these hidden power brokers, and they concocted a plan to end his presidency before he could be re-elected – thus restoring order and freedom of action to those anonymous members behind the curtain. The documentary itself runs at nearly 3 ½ hours long – but given its gripping narrative and painstaking research it is worth watching all the way through if you want to get closer to understanding one of America’s most traumatic events in history.
