Why is this so, especially when it is the Bilderbergers who are the more secretive of the two?
Bilderberg was founded, in the early 'fifties, as essentially an Atlanticist group meant to bring together capital's big business interests in Europe and North America. At the time it was feared there was a real danger that western European countries might adopt a neutralist outlook and, in consequence, be pulled into the hegemony of the Soviet Union. Hence, it was natural for the great and the good in both Europe and North America to conspire together in exclusive 'private clubs' like Bilderberg to prevent that from happening and to keep democracy (ie western capitalism) alive.
It was through no accident then, that the group gets its name from the Hotel de Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, Holland where it was founded with the late Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands as its figurehead.
The Trilateral Commission sprang from the Bilderbergers when one of its principal members, Esso or Standard Oil's David Rockefeller came into conflict with his fellows over whether to include Japan in the club. To introduce an Asian economic power into what was a club of rich Caucasians, it appears, was simply not on!
So Rockefeller funded and set up the New York-based Trilateral Commission in 1973 with Zbigniew Brzezinski as its intellectual architect. Significantly, its inaugural meeting was held in Tokyo.
The Trilateral Commission has a strong working relationship with the Council on Foreign Relations, itself the sister group of the UK-based Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House). It is divided into three regional sectors, North America, Europe and Asia. Many of its members are also Bilderbergers with the same mutual interests for the development of globalization, the so-called economics of 'neo-liberalism' including wholesale privatization of anything that moves, the new world order and corporate capitalist totalitarianism.
When conspiraloons refer to the mysterious Illuminati it's easy enough to dismiss them as fanciful conspiracy nuts. The Illuminati appear to have existed in past centuries. The head of the Seventeenth Century Order of Freemasons, the Duke of Brunswick, once accused them of having infiltrated masonry using black magic, mesmerism and the art of suggestion to program victims.
“I have been convinced that we, as an Order, have come under the power of some very evil occult Order, profoundly versed in science, both occult and otherwise, though not infallible, their method being BLACK MAGIC, that is to say, electro-magnetic power, hypnotism and powerful suggestion. We are convinced that the Order is being controlled by some Sun Order, after the nature of the Illuminati, if not by that Order itself.”
Whether or not the Illuminati still exist in name or in some other form, such as the masons, is an interesting question. But what is clear enough is that organizations like Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission not only fit the conspiratorial description given to the mysterious Illuminati but, in the more prosaic light of day, that it is they who actually deal with the nuts and bolts of manifesting the new, totalitarian world order.
So, to avoid being dismissed as a conspiracy nut or a conspiraloon (a term proudly used by blogger, Stef Zucconi in the face of supercilious sniggering from the MSM's whores) it makes eminent sense for activists to focus on groups such as Bilderberg, the Trilats and the CFR as the obvious conspirators whose history is there for anyone who cares to research it to see.
Anti-globalization activists are advised, therefore, always to refer to Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission in conjunction as complementary 'private clubs' behind the G8.
For these are REAL organizations whose raison d'etre is an ongoing conspiracy. The mainstream media dares not mention them because it would be more than its jobs are worth. The MSM work to promote them. Hence their conspiracy of silence about the conspirators.
But if you, too, are a conspiraloon who likes to do his or her own research I would recommend you to do a search for the "Trilateral Commission" using your searcher to find its website and reference in Wikipedia and so on.
