Bilderbergs, New World Orders and Conspiracy Theories
Forbes ^ | 06/09/2011 | Bill Flax

Posted on 06/10/2011 3:38:04 AM PDT by billflax

“Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations – entangling alliances with none.” — Thomas Jefferson

The annual Bilderberg Conference will convene this weekend, thus throwing the Internet into a tizzy. One hundred forty or so of the world’s most powerful persons or their proxies, titans from industry, banking, media and a host of nongovernmental organizations, will covertly huddle at a ritzy Swiss resort.

The Bilderbergers ostensibly meet each year to brainstorm about the day’s great international issues. Their discussions remain off the record so that politicians and others in sensitive roles can speak candidly without risking “gotcha” exposés.

Conspiracy theorists believe the Bilderbergers control the course of world events. That through crisis and uncertainty they steer society’s great developments with an ultimate goal of establishing a New World Order. Naturally led by them, of course.

Corruption and intrigue aren’t really conspiracies, just the nature of big government. That’s why Washington’s power must be limited and its duties precisely defined.

That is insightful.

There is but one “conspiracy” and it’s not temporal...and it’s easily learned. Let those who have eyes and ears see & hear.

Read Frank Peretti’s “This Present Darkness” for a good answer to your question. It’s fiction, like Atlas Shrugged, but it explains the big conspiracy very well.

I only read those first two, and then I heard he went in a different direction. I’m going to look up what he has written since.

This should be good....

I concur. They may meet but dedicated results don’t materialize. The egos and personal objectives are too strong and diverse.

On the UN. He described it as dysfunctional. It allows the riff raff to blow and blather with much to do about nothing. The UN is sort of a pop off valve for the havenots

Yes, and isn't it amazing that a few old, dead, slave-owning(sic) white guys understood the problem so well 250 years ago to develop an document that defined a government immune to precisely that corruption.

Wonder what ever happened to that document?

I would disagree on the whole.

There exist far too many that believe that they have the answer to the worlds every problem (ref. National Debt) and far too many that believe the world has the answer to their every problem.

Their discussions remain off the record so that politicians and others in sensitive roles can speak candidly without risking “gotcha” exposés.

And as long as the attendees insist on that, the conspiracy theories will flourish. Most people think that a gathering of all these leaders and influential people and what they have to say is a newsworthy story.

As long as they want everything "without attribution", they should stop whining and accept the predictable reaction to their secrecy.

Barry Goldwater on the CFR and Trilaterals, the Bildegergers off-shoots:

“the Council on Foreign Relations and its ancillary elitist groups are indifferent to Communism. They have no ideological anchors. In their pursuit of a new world order they are prepared to deal without prejudice with a communist state, a socialist state, a democratic state, monarchy, oligarchy – it’s all the same to them.” (With No Apologies p.278)

“What the Trilaterals truly intend is the creation of a worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of the nation-states involved… As managers and creators of the system they will rule the future.” (With No Apologies, p. 285)

Many conspiracies don't work...but some do.

Think the ivory tower elites weren't working through media to brainwash the public, for example, to keep Bill Clinton in power?

Think no one conspired to turn the public off Bush after he surged forward in public opinion after 9/11?

The social engineers do, as you say, stumble around and fail fairly often...but many of their plans DO succeed as well.

Good point. The true conspiracies are probably those theories that governments and their medias will rarely touch let alone give credibility by publishing counter opinions.

The US media rarely mentioned the NWO or Bilderbergs except as a scoffing example of the irrationality of those who would believe in conspiracies. Anyone in power that discussed it was marginalized as eccentric or worse.

If the Bilderbergs have nothing to hide, why then are they hiding?

Supposedly on the agenda is limiting Internet Freedom for this meeting of the New World Order folks [Bilderbergers].

For me, this is ironic, as the founder of Facebook I believe was on the list from the United States.

So the founder of Facebook attends a meeting to limit Internet Freedom? Does not sound good... Or maybe I am wrong...

It was the co-founder who attended the meeting:

Hughes, Chris R., Co-founder, Facebook

The Founder of Facebook is:

Mark Elliot Zuckerberg (born May 14, 1984)

A movie was made about him: The Social Network

He has attended G8 meetings, so I imagine he delegated this meeting to an underling...

The Chief Executive Officer of Google attended, though...
