Bilderberg 2012 - Conspiracy theorists please please please just GO AWAY [View all]

This was originally intended for the video thread that was hidden. I have some thoughts on the Bilderberg group, or rather the internet people who talk about them.

There are so many problematic things with the Bilderberg meetings. The secrecy (no main stream media reports, no statements), the people involved, it obviously must be extremely important to make all those people take time to attend.

So what's with the conspiracy stuff? New world order? Do you really think they are trying to take over the world? Put us all in concentration camps or something? Guess what, they already run the world, so there's no need.


That the Bilderberg meetings started in Europe after world war two is no coincidence. After being ravaged by two world wars, Europe needed to look for ways to make itself more interconnected, because you are very unlikely to go to war against your business partners. The cost is too high. The idea of the French-German steel Union that eventually grew into the EU was probably born there. Not only did it create an interdependence between Germany and France, it also eased a lot of the tensions around the important Alsance-Lorraine mining region that France and Germany has fought over.

Today, what they most likely do is have informal discussions on issues to further globalization, because i think that is their goal. They believe that the more interconnected the world is, the better it is (and more profitable). Since the 80s globalization means forcing/making more people and countries around the world accept neoliberalism as the hegemonic social/economic ideology, like it has been in the US for quite some time.

That is what i oppose. I oppose the spread of neoliberalism and predatory capitalism under the false flag of "democracy".

And i really, really wish that main stream media would talk about this, so that morons like Alex Jones and RT (who frequently broadcast stupid conspiracy theories) would not be able to hijack this story, because that ruins the possibility of asking serious questions. I am sure the Bilderbergs loves the fact that the conspiracy nutters are creating all this fuzz.

To be fair to RT, their initial report was not that bad. But i worry that its going to get worse, as their target audience seem to be the conspiratorial internet crowd who love to go hunting for selective info that will support their own nutty theories (overlooking anything else).
