Well, these people do, many of whom were on the official guest list at the recent Bilderberger meeting, which went completely unreported on any major news channel near you.
Don't worry, I'm not a conspiracy theorist. I don't think there's any conspiracy about it at all; it's almost all completely in the open. The global elite, as heavily represented by this list, want a single unitary world government, a single world paper currency, a single world taxation system, a single world judicial system, and they want all of this to be ruled over by a wise beneficent oligarchy, i.e. themselves. If endless wealth and power should happen to be transmitted down the generations to their genetic or intellectual offspring, for the rest of time...well, that's just the price they'll have to pay for giving up their weekends by labouring on our behalf at Michelin-starred country retreats.
And what could be fairer than that? Obviously George W. Bush had to avoid being there, otherwise there would have been too much inevitable press attention, but you'll notice on the list a few people he might have a nodding acquaintance with:
- Keith Alexander, Director, US National Security Agency
- Ben Bernanke
- Tim Geithner, President & CEO, Federal Reserve Bank of New York
- Henry A. Kissinger
- Condoleezza Rice
- David Rockefeller
- Paul Wolfowitz
So who represented Blighty at this global gathering of the great and the good who rule so wisely and benevolently over the rest of us little people?
- Kenneth Clarke
- Lord John Kerr, Deputy Chairman, Royal Dutch Shell
- Tom McKillop, Chairman, Royal Bank of Scotland
- George Osborne, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer
- J. Martin Taylor, Chairman, Syngenta
The other question for the ambitious, is this. How do you get yourself onto this Bilderberger invitational list, or how do you get a membership invite to any of the other related organisations? [e.g. Chatham House (formerly known as the Royal Institute of International Affairs), the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), or the Trilateral Commission]
Well, the minimum requirement is that you have to be an immoral self-serving liberty-destroying crook who wishes to live off the sweat of others via government privilege. To add a first cherry to this cake, you should also wish to preserve the right to do this for yourself and your descendants for the rest of time by continually destroying and undermining the free market of human aspiration, via inflation, regulation, and taxation. To add a second cherry you must add talent, energy, and charisma, to a point which exceeds most mortal men. Career choices? Banking, law, or politics, though perhaps all three combined with a smattering of media knowledge, will get you into the club. Interested? Then get a law degree, gain a career with a major bank, then join the Labour party or the Conservative party and use your ruthless ambition to drive your name and career forward at all opportunities until you are at the top of the pelfdom rat tree. The Bilderberger meeting invitation will then be dans le post, as surely as eggs is self-hatching plots.
Incidentally, I really am not a conspiracy theorist as I would rather avoid heading into the furry purple undergrowth of David Icke territory. I merely believe that all of the Bilderbergers are self-seeking criminally-minded individuals who have gathered together to enhance their joint theft practices upon others, in a loose amalgamation of thieving co-interests; in other words, they are a loosely inter-connected Mafia Commission of crooks at the rotten robbing heart of the world's statist bureaucracy.
All historical forces are merely the amalgamations of individual self-interest. Some are civilising and noble (i.e. Austrianism) and some are decivilising and ignoble (e.g. Bilderbergerism).
For a masterclass exposition of how shyster individual self-interest can warp the dynamics of even the most libertarian of systems, with extensive coverage of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Trilateral Commission, you can do no better than Uncle Murray's exposé of the inauguration and growth of the Federal Reserve system via its symbiotic inter-twining with the US welfare/warfare state:
Wall Street, Banks, and American Foreign Policy
BTW, in answer to my original question of "who rules the world?", if your answer was anywhere near, "we do, because democracy is where we rule ourselves", then I have the following website recommendation for you:
