The Bilderberg Group is an annual conference that brings together influential individuals from the fields of politics, finance, business, academia, and media.
They meet in a different luxurious hotel or resort each year, usually in Europe or North America.
The conference is held under Chatham House Rule, which means that participants are free to use the information they receive, but they are not allowed to disclose the identity or affiliation of the speakers outside the conference.
The Bilderberg Group was established in 1954 at the Hotel de Bilderberg in the Netherlands. The idea for the conference came from Polish political emigre Joseph Retinger and Belgian Prime Minister Paul van Zeeland, who sought to foster closer cooperation between Europe and North America in the wake of World War II.
The first meeting brought together prominent figures such as Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, David Rockefeller, and various European political and business leaders.
For several decades, the Bilderberg Group operated with a high level of secrecy, leading to speculation about its true nature and intentions.
They invite approximately 130-140 participants each year, including prominent figures from politics, business, academia, and media.
The list of attendees is not publicly disclosed.
The group thrives on the following.
- They maintain a lack of transparency.
- They enjoy elitism and global manipulation.
- They exert influence over geopolitics.
Daniel Estulin has written extensively on the meetings, including his book The True Story Of The Bilderberg Group.
