In this new age of unflinching informational communes found on the internet, it can be difficult to keep up with the sheer amount of conspiracy theories that we’ve discovered to be true through our pseudo-omnipotence.
Thanks to this newfound ability to share information as quickly as we receive it, Americans are swiftly learning a number of new skills. Global communication is one of those skills, along with the ability to sniff out corruption thanks to tools such as the Freedom of Information Act.
In other words, we as a people are quite adverse to getting hoodwinked, and we certainly have some potent protections against it. What happens when corruption is taken off of American soil, however? That is anyone’s guess, and certainly the way in which the globalist cabal known as the Bilderberg Group operates. No longer attempting to hide their future-shaping meetings against the information tidal wave of the 21t century, the mainstream media even reports on where these ultra wealthy nation-builders will meet.
Of course, that has done little to stem the tide of controversy surrounding them.
The secretive Bilderberg Group gathers for its annual meeting next week, which this year takes place in Turin, Italy.
A collective of elite North American and European politicians, business leaders, financiers and academics, the group has attracted a good deal of suspicion over the last half-century, with conspiracy theorists confidently asserting that its members are plotting the New World Order and are hell-bent on global domination.
Protesters who believe the Bilderbergers represent a “shadow world government” regularly picket their yearly meet-ups, creating a need for high security at all times, but attendees insist the group is simply a debating society taking place outside the glare of the political spotlight.
The group publishes its guest list the day before its annual get together – between 120 and 150 are invited by its steering committee – along with a list of the subjects they intend to discuss as a gesture towards transparency. This typically consists of broad issues like macroeconomic concerns, the threat of terrorism and cyber-security.
No minutes are taken, however, and the outcome of their discussions are not made public, hence the assumption that they are a sinister cabal of the rich and powerful with something to hide.
Conspiracy theorists tend to love the idea of the Bilderberg Group, as they represent a fairly in the open confirmation of what the tinfoil hat types already believe: That the world is being secretly controlled by someone, and all of the unfortunate situations that befall you are not your fault, but rather the work of a sinister plot to extort your physical and mental abilities to funnel money to the tippety top of the 1%.
