On June 7 in Turin will host the next meeting of the Bilderberg group – an informal annual conference.
Participants of the conference more than 130 participants, most of whom are influential people in politics, business and banking, as well as heads of leading Western media.
To get to the conference is possible only by personal invitation. The first meeting of the club took place in 1954 at the hotel “Bilderberg” in the Dutch city Oosterbeek, hence its name.
Topics of this meeting will be the populism in Europe, inequality, the future of work, artificial intelligence, internal policy of the United States, freedom of trade, the US role as the leading country in the world, Russia, quantum computers, Saudi Arabia and Iran.
so the bankers & billionaires at this year’s #Bilderberg will be debating “The inequality challenge”. I guess the challenge is, how can we possibly make it more unequal? Full agenda here: https://t.co/hUAZPy8UM8 #Bilderberg2018, Turin, June 7-10 pic.twitter.com/YvDxmx0m8z

Among the invited participants can meet such figures as former U.S. Secretary of state Henry Kissinger, the former head of the CIA David Petraeus, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the head of the Bank of England mark Carney and others.
It is worth noting that among the guests no Russians, although at the last meeting of the Bilderberg group were invited Grigory Yavlinsky and Lilia Shevtsova. Anatoly Chubais, attended the meeting twice: from 14 to 17 may 1998 (meeting of the Bilderberg club in Turnbury, Scotland) and in 2012. In 2011, the club participated Alexey Mordashov, head of Severstal. In 2015, the only Russian to be invited to the meeting, was the economist Sergei Guriev, 2013 living in France.
The fact that over the last 60 years meeting of the representatives of authorities, heads of major banks, energy companies, defense corporations, the major media of Western countries leaves no aura of secrecy, paranoia and speculation, does not add fans to the “Bilderberg”. Each meeting of the club rather doomed to misunderstanding and disapproval than any positive reaction from the public.
The composition of participants varies, but the content of the meetings each year raises many questions. Descriptions of the meetings in the Bilderberg only adds fuel to the fire:
“Founded in 1954, the Bilderberg conference is an annual meeting designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America. Each year approximately 120-150 political leaders and experts from various sectors are invited to participate in the conference. About 2/3 of delegates is in Europe, and the rest from North America. Approximately 1/3 of politicians and officials”.
“These meetings do not advance the desired outcome, the content is not recorded, and their results are not compiled reports. Moreover, not offered any solutions, not going on any ballot, and not to make any political statements.”
Daniel Estulin, author of the acclaimed bestseller “Who rules the world? Or the whole truth about the Bilderberg club”, describes the meeting as “a meeting of the shadow world government… threatening to take away our right to control our destinies by creating a disturbing reality”. “Imagine a private club where presidents, Prime Ministers, bankers and generals are very close, where people who wage war and influence markets, they say what they never dare say publicly,” he said.
The vast majority of “Bilderberg” represent the interests of global capital. They are not accountable to the population of countries. They discuss issues that directly relate to many people, produce a “Bilderberg” line, which will arrange in the first place companies, banks, industrial groups and larger conglomerates they work for. Anyway, this is truly one of the existing prototypes of the “gray” world government that nobody elected and whose decisions have a significant impact on the fate of the world.

Convincing of the need for “transparency” and “inclusiveness” business and the authorities of other countries in the management and decision-making, the participants of the Bilderberg club serves a rather dubious example.
Until the proponents of unfettered globalization, trade unions with the secretive conditions and closed elite clubs will continue to play these games, it is hardly surprising that they remain far from the people, many of whom perceive them not only as people, but also including, as active collaborators whose “greatest trick is that he convinced everyone, though it doesn’t exist”.
