The Bilderberg Group, Bilderberg conference, or Bilderberg Club is an annual, unofficial, invitation-only conference of approximately 140 guests, most of whom are people of influence in the fields of politics,banking, business, the military and news media. The names of attendees are made available to the press, but the conferences are closed to the public and the media, and no press releases are issued.
Because of its exclusivity and privacy, the Bilderberg group is frequently accused by conspiracy theorists from both extremes of the political spectrum of being an all-powerful secret society fixing the fate of the world behind closed doors.
Critics of Bilderberg conspiracy theories counter that it is nothing more than a policy discussion forum and social club which only serves as a means to brainstorm, reach consensus, and create social cohesion within the power elite of Western European and North American nations, to better promote Atlanticism and a neoliberal form of globalization.
So what does this mean? Well it’s like Super Bowl week for conspiracy theorists! Yes, that’s right folks. This week you will get all the best fake “real” news you can handle. For example (from the conspiracy community’s NY Times, InfoWars):
Apparently the “Puppeteers” are very concerned with the US Congress wanting to back out of the NATO strikes on Libya, mostly because they want to expand the civil unrest in the Middle East. On top of creating revolutions in Arab nations, the Bilderberg Group want to tighten the reigns on the freedom of the internet. Also, the Group is looking to pick a new IMF Chief and figure out the European Union financial crisis.
While all this seems fairly non-insane, it actually is. This is not a political group, these are private sector individuals meeting in Switzerland, and discussing the implementation of their plans into global public policy… which is absolutely insane!
