Bloviating Zeppelin: The Bilderbergers Are Coming! Can Global Domination Be Far Behind?!!?

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The Bilderbergers Are Coming! Can Global Domination Be Far Behind?!!?



The Bilderbergers are meeting! The Bilderbergers are meeting!

The world's political elite, top thinkers and powerful business folk gathered here for an annual, ultra-secretive Bilderberg conference as heavy security kept conspiracy theorists and curious onlookers at bay.

Global luminaries such as former US secretary of state Henry Kissinger, US banker David Rockefeller and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands were greeted at the airport by limousine drivers holding single-letter "B" signs late Thursday, said local reports.
The talks are by invitation-only. Because discussions are off-the-record, the group has been subject to similar criticisms and speculation about its intentions since 1954 when the first conference was held at the Hotel de Bilderberg in the Netherlands.
So. Who are these so-called "Bilderbergers" (who seem to have named their group after the hotel where they first met) anyway? And should I fear them?
If I fear them, will I be the next to become abducted by aliens? Shall I hear the approaching turbines of black helicopters? Should I pull out a sheet of tinfoil and custom-cut-it to fit my dome?
1. ARE THE BILDERBERGERS REAL?
Yes Binky, they are real. As real as smiley faces and "73% cheese product." Wikipedia, an internet source I mostly trust, says:
The Bilderberg group or Bilderberg conference is an unofficial annual invitation only [1] conference of around 130 guests, most of whom are persons of influence in the fields of business, academia, media, or politics.

Due to discussions by public officials and powerful business leaders (and others) being off-the-record, these annual meetings are the subject of much criticism (for circumventing the more typical democratic process of discussing issues openly and publicly) and numerous unproven conspiracy theories.

The elite group meets annually, in secret, at exclusive, five-star resorts throughout the world, normally in Europe, although sometimes in the United States or Canada. It has an office in Leiden, South Holland, Netherlands.
2. ARE THEY PART OF A GLOBAL CONSPIRACY?
In my opinion, no. But my opinion doesn't count for much when Joseph Farah (who was once employed by the now-defunct The Sacramento Union -- where Mark Twain once worked!) of WorldNetDaily wrote on May 16th of 2003:
Do you believe in conspiracies?

Do you believe there are powerful people who conspire together annually to solidify their grip on world domination?

Do you believe all of this happens in secret, with the quiet complicity of the world media?

Well, I've got news for you. There really are conspiracies at work. There really are powerful people plotting world domination. And they really operate in near-total secrecy as the world press sits on its collective duff.

In fact, it's happening right now as you read this column.

The venue is Versailles, France. Today is the last day of a two-day confab of the Bilderberg Group, an international lobby representing the interests of the power elite of Europe and America.

You would be surprised at the membership of the organization. One of the founding members, for instance is Otto Wolff von Amerongen – a man credited with reviving business ties between Germany and the old Soviet bloc. For more than 50 years, according to the Moscow Times, he "walked the corridors of power and influence on both sides of the Iron Curtain," serving as Bonn's informal ambassador to Russia while heading numerous trade committees and commissions over the decades. He has been at the forefront of closer economic relations between Russia and Germany.
Um so weiter -- and so on.
3. WHY I DON'T BUY THE GLOBAL DOMINATION THEORY
Mostly: because it involves human beings. Most humans couldn't think or work themselves out of the proverbial paper bag.
As the joke goes:
Q: "When can two LAPD cops or Hells Angels keep a secret?"
A: "When one is dead."
4. IF THEY ARE SO EFFECTIVE . . .
Then why is there war? War is bad for many governments.
Why is there unpredictability?
Unpredictability is bad for Business.
Why are there national stock markets?
Big Business should simply do what it wishes when it wishes.

"Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead." - Ben Franklin

One of the fun things about the Illuminatus! series, which was a very whacked-out read only fit for those in an altered state of consciousness, which insulin reactions provided for me, was that conspiracies are damn hard to hide. However, one does not have to have a *real* conspiracy to have co-joined outlooks that work together to come to ill-ends. So, I am not a conspiracy theorist nor play one on the net, but do point out that concerted actions that have no good ends can often work with other such to make the untoward happen. No matter how 'good' the intent, if the outcome will lead to no good then the action itself must be judged to be bad.

So globalizing currency also goes along with globalizing everything else, and deteriorating the Nation State from within and from without. Every strike against National Sovereignty and self-determination puts a Free Society at risk. And when we have been given that 'Government can do good, if you just give it...', then you know someone is putting forward that YOU do not need to have rights and responsibilities and need, indeed, to be overseen by a larger entity. We have gotten in the habit of 'passing the buck' as if that was OK.

The buck does not stop on the President's desk if it does not leave your hands in the first place. That attitude of 'letting (someone else/the government)handle it' is abdicating the responsibility of a Citizen as given in the Constitution.

For we get many, many responsibilities before Our rights are even mentioned. And We put forth that those rights must be used to fulfill those responsibilities for the ends put forth between All of Us. When you hand over your responsibilities, you *also* hand over your rights to direct, guide, oversee and be held accountable for them.

Somehow you are never told that when you are told about all the 'good' government could do.

AJ: "When you hand over your responsibilities, you *also* hand over your rights to direct, guide, oversee and be held accountable for them."

That is so correct, and it befuddles me that so many are so willing to do precisely that. We have but to look at the EU to realize that they will NOT have a linked and unified constitution, and that the French and the Dutch will vote down an EU constitution again and again. So much for incredible unity.

And we have but to look at Puerto Rico to realize that a welfare state is the death knell to motivation and prosperity.

I find it logical to think that, perhaps, various interests will get together for formal or informal discussions of the state of the world; after all, they HAVE their interests to consider.

That does not necessarily mean they are planning for Global Domination.

People, however, will ALWAYS act in their own self interest. It is the nature of Man.
