Leave God out of the market. He has nothing to do with whether the market is up or down, people do. Media companies are owned by big time investors i.e. bloomberg, time-warner etc who will continue to sway the market their way. They will continue to blow smoke up people's tush.
thats an interesting theory, and i've considered it many times... But, whats the big payoff? I JUST (last week) learned about blackwater security... which is scary... privately controlled army!
V for vandetta and fight club come to mind.
Surprisingly enough, its very easy to manipulate the markets. Think about what happened when Societe Generale went to unwind 60bil... I think we had 10% drop in asian markets that day, and everyone was getting ready for 500 pt drop in dow (500+), until fed went and lowered the rate by .75%... And even then, people didn't know wtf to think... :-\
