I think it is more like spite, jealousy, and schadenfreude. It's like rich ugly high school virgin teens being jealous of beautiful poor teens that get laid and then doing something about it to ruin their lives.

The thing is they could have creamed even more money off if they'd kept the oil flowing instead of stopping investment.

They are like the people who killed the golden goose.

At least the rich in the West realise they have to keep the economy ticking over if they want to stay in their privileged positions.

I won't comment on NWO, but generally I agree that greed is pretty a flaw of humanity. It has some upsides, but we exploit downsides instead.

edit: btw nice to hear opinion from Venezuelan, here in Poland people are joking that our government is copy of venezuelan, they are similar to some extent xD
