cabal of elites unified by such organizations as the
Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations,
and the Freemasons.

Congress was too small relatively-too small to be truly
representative of the great diversity of the nation.
Congress was also too small absolutely-too small to be
immune from cabal and intrigue.
