This is an informative, refreshing and entertaining article from The Guardian about The Bilderberg Group; who are, for those who don't know, a clandestine organisation made up of politicians, bankers, corporate execs, royalty, 'national security' types etc, who apparently 'just have our best interests at heart'.  If you used to talk about them once-upon-a-time, people would say you were some kind of conspiracy nut, that they didn't actually exist. You were basically lumped in a sack with David Icke, Alex Jones etc, and who would want to be put in a sack with the likes of they? Not I (The tinitus I would have from Jones' constant yelling, and sustained nausea-enducing monologues I would receive from prophet Icke would be too much).  But now, it's official! They DO exist, and they even have their own website (oh how things have reversed; nowadays, WE don't exist if we don't have a website!).

Throughout the year, every year, (with one larger annual event which is now at least publicly acknowledged), the world's most powerful people meet in secret  to discuss running the world, so us lowly peasants don't have to worry our little heads about it, or quibble about semantics such as conflict of interest vs equality, corruption vs transparency & regulation, world domination vs democracy...silly little things like that.

So it was nice to read a very clear-headed and balanced article that sticks 'just to the facts ma'am' and indentifies some of those who take part in the proceedings (whilst many still remain anonymous), as well as highlighting some of the hypocrisies and double standards of this two-tier system....I urge you to read it...It is quite funny too. Also, strangely, some of the Bilderbergers went on a mountain walk which led them right past protesters, who for the time, intercepted them:

Bilderbergers seen in the video clip include "Prince of Darkness" Peter Mandelson, Google founder Eric Schmidt, Peer Steinbr├╝ck, Franco Bernabe, Jacob Wallenberg, and Thomas Enders.

Seeing the article's photos of some of the Bilderbergers who look decidedly human (as opposed to reptilian usurpers or bond villains), I like to think that in some aspects the Bilderberg conference is just like most other business seminars; that even the likes of  The Rothschilds, Goldman Sachs executives, Rockefeller and Kissinger, can't escape the boring tedium of powerpoint presentations, cringeworthy icebreakers, dull small talk and name badges (The idea of Kissinger for example, donning a sticker which says "Hi I'm: Henry" cracks me up). I'm guessing though the nibbles and refreshments are a bit more upmarket, and aren't served on cheap cash-and-carry paper plates.

And would there be the obligatory embarrassing after-seminar meal and piss up?  Corporate-sponsored disco where all the innebriated Bilderbergers dance badly and sing along to "We are family....I love all my 'bergers and me"?

Getting back to the point of this post, I read a good comment below the article, which I thought was very relevant:
"What is the point of having a freedom of information act when things like this are going on with the involvement of British officials?  Is it the case that we are "free" to know anything that they want us to know and "not free" to know anything they DONT want us to know?"...a fair point I thought.

Certain people claim that people who question this groups motives and are suspicious of what they get up to are paranoid fantasists (just look at some of the messages on the comments forum). Paranoid or not, we don't know what these people are getting up to...I don't think they'd all get together in secret just for a glass of pinot grigio 1959, a lobster dinner, and to do the hokey-cokey, do you?

For those nay-sayers who believe that nothing untoward is happening, and that we should just let these 'guardians of out well-being' continue as they are, behind very closed doors, I'll end with this quote by Thomas Jefferson (swiped from this article):

"Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government." And: "If once they [the people] become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves."
Without the people's attention to government, government grows fangs; but: "Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day."
