A number of the most influential people in the world gathered to participate in a secret Bilderberg meeting, which began on Thursday. They will discuss the most pressing issues, including Russia, free trade and the post-truth world. Political leaders and experts in industry, Finance, academia and the media participated in the annual conference, which is held this year in Turin from Thursday to Sunday.

The organizers of the Bilderberg meeting confirmed that 131 participants from 23 countries have taken part in the meeting so far. The guest list this year: President of the world economic forum børge Brende, the Directors-General of Airbus, DeepMind and Total, as well as mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, and Michael O’leary of Ryanair. The meeting will be headed by French businessman Henri de Castries, he also heads the” steering Committee ” of the organization.

Among the invited participants can also 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.

It is worth noting that among the invited there are no Russians, although the last meeting of the Bilderberg group invited Grigory and Lilia Shevtsova. Anatoly Chubais attended the meetings twice: from 14 to 17 may 1998 (Bilderberg club meeting in Turnbury, Scotland) and in 2012 in 2011 Alexey Mordashov, head of Severstal, took part in the work of the club. In 2015, the only Russian invited to the meeting was economist Sergei Guriev, who has been living in France since 2013.

The main topics for discussion this year were published by the organizers

This gave an idea of what are considered to be the most pressing issues in global Affairs:

Populism in Europe.
The problem of inequality.
The future of jobs.
Artificial intelligence.
US in the run-up to the midterm elections.
Free trade.
Global leadership of the United States.
Quantum computation.
Saudi Arabia and Iran.
World of truth.
Current event.

Issues such as the growth of anti-establishment policies and populism in Europe, persistent inequality, Western relations with a resurgent Russia and Saudi Arabia, and Iran’s power are constantly discussed. Others, such as the rise of artificial intelligence and quantum computing, reflect the uncertainty in humanity’s relationship with technology.

Nevertheless, the list is dominated by politics and geopolitics, as well as the themes of Russia, the Middle East, the us world leadership and the domestic political situation on the eve of the midterm elections in November. The arrival of President Donald trump in the White house abolished the old way of politics and announced the policy of renegades in power.

Scandals related to allegations of the mass use of social media to influence elections are also linked to blurring the line between real facts and fiction. Consequently, the world of posttrade will be one of the issue that will be discussed Bilderpavsky group.

The policy of post-truth in the Oxford English Dictionary in 2016 was defined as a policy “denoting the circumstances in which objective facts have less influence on the formation of public opinion than emotions and personal belief”. The right word: discretion.

The organizers say that the Bilderberg meeting, founded in 1954, is an annual event designed to “promote dialogue between Europe and North America”.


About two thirds of the participants come from Europe and the rest from North America. About a quarter of the representatives are members of political and government circles, the rest are from other areas, the organizers said in a statement Wednesday. As always, caution is necessary.
This conference is a forum for informal discussions on major issues of concern to the world.

Meetings are held in accordance with the Chatham house rule. It States that participants may use the information received, but neither the identity nor the status of the Rapporteur should be disclosed.

The organizers stated that due to the private nature of the meeting, “participants do not have pre-agreed positions”. “Thus, they can spend time to perceive information, to think and to process it. No preferred result, no protocols and reports. In addition, no resolutions are proposed, no political statements are made,” they explained.

Participation in the meeting has long been synonymous with elite membership, so the frequently asked question is how the Bilderberg meeting is funded.

The organizers stated: “the annual contributions of the steering Committee members cover the annual costs of the Secretariat. The budget of the Secretariat is limited to the cost of the meeting. Accommodation costs during the annual meeting shall be borne by the members of the steering Committee of the host country. Check-in is by invitation only, no fee will be charged. Participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation expenses.”

The very fact that over the past 60 years, the meetings of government officials, heads of major banks, energy companies, defense concerns, the largest media in Western countries does not leave an aura of secrecy, paranoia and speculation, does not add fans of “Bilderberg”. Each meeting of the club is doomed to misunderstanding and disapproval rather than any positive reaction from the public.


The composition of the participants varies, but the content of the meetings every year raises many questions

Description of meetings in the Bilderberg club only adds fuel to the fire:

“The Bilderberg conference, founded in 1954, is an annual meeting designed to establish a dialogue between Europe and North America. Every year about 120-150 political leaders and experts from different sectors are invited to participate in the conference. About 2/3 of the delegates are from Europe, the rest are from North America. Approximately 1/3 – politicians and government officials”.

“These meetings do not have the desired outcome in advance, their content is not recorded, and no reports are made on their results. 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 meetings as”meetings of the shadow world government… threatening to take away our rights to control our own destinies, creating an alarming reality.” “Imagine a private club where presidents, Prime Ministers, bankers and generals communicate closely, where people who wage wars and influence markets say what they will never dare to say publicly,” he emphasizes.

The vast majority of Bilderbergs represent the interests of global capital. They are not accountable to the people of countries. At the same time, they discuss issues that directly affect many people, develop a “Bilderberg” line that will suit primarily companies, banks, industrial groups and larger conglomerates for which they work. One way or another, it is indeed one of the existing prototypes of the “gray” world government, which no one has chosen and whose decisions have a significant impact on the fate of the world.

The participants of the Bilderberg club, who convince of the need for “transparency” and “inclusiveness” of business and authorities of other countries in the management and decision-making, set 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 as active collaborators, whose “greatest trick is that he convinced everyone, though it doesn’t exist”.
