Bilderberg Group

The Bilderberg Group

“To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair. Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn’t go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people and rendering millions homeless. So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing.” (Denis Healy, 2001)

The Bilderberg Group is part lobby group, part think tank, part policy-forming body. The Bilderberg Group itself is the Steering Committee. Every year, the Bilderberg Group holds a conference, to which 120 or so highly influential people are invited.

The current chairman of Bilderberg is Henri de La Croix de Castries, 5th Comte de Castries. He is the Chairman and CEO of AXA, the insurance giant – one of the world’s largest corporations.

According to the Bilderberg Group’s own website:

What is unique about Bilderberg as a forum is

the broad cross-section of leading citizens that are assembled for nearly three days of informal and off-the-record discussion about topics of current concern especially in the fields of foreign affairs and the international economy;

the strong feeling among participants that in view of the differing attitudes and experiences of the Western nations, there remains a clear need to further develop an understanding in which these concerns can be accommodated;

the privacy of the meetings, which has no purpose other than to allow participants to speak their minds openly and freely.
