Every year, the world’s richest and most powerful business executives, bankers, media heads, academic thought leaders, and politicians gather behind closed doors and discuss how to shape the world while perpetuating a status quo that has been highly beneficial for a select few. We are talking, of course, about the annual, and always super secretive, Bilderberg meeting.
The 68th Bilderberg Meeting is already underway in Washington, D.C., which began on Thursday and will continue through Sunday.
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Henry Kissinger, and CIA Director William J. Burns are among the 120 invitees (click here for the full list) this year from 21 countries… though not many Russians.
Bilderberg prides itself for enforcing the Chatham House Rule, according to which participants are free to use all the precious information they wish because those who attend these meetings are bound to not disclose the source of any sensitive information or what exactly was said. That helps ensure Bilderberg’s legendary secrecy – the reason for myriad conspiracy theories. But, as Pepe Escobar notes, that does not mean that the odd secret may not be revealed.
According to the group, this is the lineup of topics to be discussed:
- Geopolitical Realignments
- NATO Challenges
- Indo-Pacific Realignment
- Sino-US Tech Competition
- Continuity of Government and the Economy
- Disruption of the Global Financial System
- Energy Security and Sustainability
- Post-Pandemic Health
- Fragmentation of Democratic Societies
- Trade and Deglobalisation
As can be seen, the members (two thirds of the participants from Europe and the rest from North America) will be discussing (plotting?) ways to manage the emergence of a bipolar world. Also, the agenda appears to be a direction away from freedom as the group will discuss plans to combat “Disinformation,” or elites silencing their opponents.- READ MORE
