The parallel systems of power are tightly intermeshed: political power, the interests of business, religion, media, intellectual elites. Numerous decisions in our democracy are made pseudo-democratically at best, when corruption, bribery or more euphemistically lobbyism, wield their influence. Inconvenient legislation is circumvented, invisible networks work on their constructions of reality behind the scenes.

When investigative journalists, researchers critical of the system and tenacious activists look for missing pieces in public information, they are dependent on those who are prepared to divulge something about the way things are linked together in the worlds of power: but the whistle-blowers often remain invisible and faceless, giving no interviews and staying forever incognito. How can we get a hold on the big picture in this situation? Where is the truth between abstruse conspiracy theories and the officially prescribed reality that seeks to draw a veil over as much as possible?
