Military, big Media and big tech comanies have always had strong connections in the past.

And maybe there are social experiments running, the refugee crysis beeing an other one. (Next to all western states had cut their funding for refugee camps in half, making them unable to supply the refugees with enough foot. This made them move, Merkels welcome only gave them a destination.)

Little mindgame:
There's Russia, their ressources have to be integrated into the western world next. Either through a regime change or war. Giving a handfull of companies controll over American, European and African ressources and starting to round up China (Vietnam and Japan are currently getting in position) in order to get Asia.
There might have never been so much power in so few hands before, some of them are probably dreaming of their world government. Biggest issue remaining are the people, precisely understanding how they act might be the key.

They may have similarly funded Win10, or at least certain aspects of it.

That would help to explain why they've made it "free of charge" and tried to force so many people into using it.

They're certainly getting something out of it.  I've always felt that way, as Microsoft usually does nothing for free or out of the goodness of their heart.
