    Are these people necessary to a 21st century global economy?

    The Bilderbergs are the movers and shakers of finance and industry and bear no allegiance to any flag or nation.

    They exist outside the realm of civilization, free of society's morals, government's laws and God's commandments.

    Conspiracy theorists tell us the Bilderberg Mega-Billionaires control the world's governments as well it's economy.

    The Bilderberg Group is the major component of the International Economy, but is it necessary to it's success?

    Could the worlds economy be as efficient and successful if it were managed by governments or some other entity?

    Bilderberg | Public Intelligence
    Daniel Estulin Bilderberg Speech at EU Parliament Press Conference
    June 3, 2010 in Bilderberg


    "In the world of international finance, there are those who steer the events and those who react to the events. While the latter are better known, greater in numbers, and seemingly more powerful, the true power rests with the former. At the centre of the global financial system are the financial oligarchy today represented by the Bilderberg group. Bilderberg organization is dynamic, in that it changes with the times, absorbs and crates new parts while excreting the remains of the decaying parts. Members come and go, but the system itself has not changed. It is a self-perpetuating system, a virtual spider web of interlocked financial, political, economic and industry interests. Now, Bilderberg isn´t a secret society. It is not an evil, all-seeing eye. There is no conspiracy even though a lot of people with their infantile fantasies see it as such. No group of people, and I don’t care how powerful they are, sit around the table in dark room, holding hands, staring at a crystal ball, planning the world´s future."

    If it wasn't the Bilderberg's it would be someone else. Thats the nature of Capitalism. There is always, ALWAYS someone up at the top. And it doesn't matter what ideology a country has because money is used everywhere. And if there is money then there is capitalism.

    So while it doesn't have to be the Bilderberg's, as long as there is capitalism there will always be the "Bilderberg" type/class.

    It's not the nature of capitalism. Its the nature of reality. Nature abhors a vacuum. If there is a niche for something, someone will eventually fill it.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    If the truth be known,
    a major part of our problem is with the folks that are striving to BE the next Bilderbergs.

    The bilderberg conferences just annoys me. Putting a bunch of politicians and business interests together in a secret meeting isn't going to create one world government, but its just asking for plain old corruption. The fact that public money is used to obtain police protection for the events is an unacceptable use of funds, not to mention downright insulting.

    Welcome to the "free market" intertwined with some sick capitalist-corporatism...

    That is probably correct. The danger is that in the past, that class has amassed too much control over the worlds money supply leaving it subject to boom and bust cycles
    These cycles become more and more extreme and it eventually will plunge the world into another Great Depression if it is not controlled. Maldistribution of wealth was a major cause of the Great Depression and we are closer to those levels every day.

    Normally I would agree with you. However in this case the vacuum is a created man made construct. Capitalism and its inherent mechanism's are not found in nature itself. Reality would go on perfectly well without capitalism. As such while it might be a part of our reality it is not necessarily a part of nature's reality.

    I agree__But would it be better for the other 7 billion people of earth if it were something other than the Bilderberg Group, such as government agencies in each nation or some other entity if one existed or could be created?

    And it doesn't matter what ideology a country has because money is used everywhere. And if there is money then there is capitalism.
    Although most Progressives would disagree, it does make a difference in the sense that blanket capitalism allows everyone the opportunity to participate and possibly even advance to the Bilderberg level.

    So while it doesn't have to be the Bilderberg's, as long as there is capitalism there will always be the "Bilderberg" type/class.
    So what you are saying is that the Bilderbergs are a product of capitalism, for which I agree, and any other system would render them obsolete__I ask you, could another system manage the world's economy as efficiently and productively as the Bilderbergs?

    I agree, providing there is no mechanism in place to prevent it.
