Book Review - The True Story of the Bilderberg Group, by Daniel Estulin

Who are the Bilderberg Group?

This book, The True Story of the Bilderberg Group by Daniel Estulin, has had a profound effect on my outlook in life.

It has made me question the accepted version of the history of the major world events of the past 70 odd years, as well as take another look at our current politiciansand world leaders.

Are they puppets for the Bilderberg Group who control the strings?

Is it really possible this group, who I previously hadn't heard of, are so omni-powerful that what they decide can change the course of events in not just the whole of the western hemisphere, but perhaps the world?

That's a scary thought! It means that those of us who thought we lived in a free and democratic society really have no power at all.

How the Bilderberg Group were founded

In the book, Daniel Estulin describes how the Bilderberg Group were founded in 1954. They held their first meeting at the Bilderberg Hotel in Oosterbeek, Holland.

It was Netherlands' Prince Bernhard who organized this very first meeting of representatives of the world's economic, industrial, political and military realms.

He believed the Great Depression could have been avoided if the individual leaders of each powerful nation could actually get together and make decisions without having to have one eye on the electorate all the time.

In other words, He wanted them to get together and discuss workable solutions, but behind the backs of the electorate who may disagree with what was wanted and so vote them out of office.

To this end, the captains of industry were involved from the very beginning, as these players as well as forwarding their own agendas on an equal footing with the politicians, could assist in making sure that what was decided at the Bilderberg meeting was carried out.

At the end of that first meeting, the attendees agreed to form a secret association.

While a lot of subsequent reports suggest the Bilderbergs got their name from the hotel of that very first meeting, it has since transpired that during the early 1930s, German-born Prince Bernhard served as an officer in the Reiter SS Corps and was on the board of an IG subsidiary, Farben Bilder, and so the organisation's name may have been derived from that.

After the war, his family conveniently buried his Nazi history when he became a top official in Royal Dutch Shell, A Dutch-British conglomerate.

Today, this rich European oil company forms part of the inner circle of the Bilderberg elite.

Aims of the Bilderberg Group

The Bilderberg Group meet annually at an unpublished location throughout the world.

They always choose a hotel of the highest luxury, set in a location well away from prying eyes and gossip, but the presence at each meeting of the huge numbers of security personnel are a dead giveaway.

KIngs, queens, heads of state and heads of industry are either present or represented.

Nearly all the presidents of the US and prime ministers of the UK were invited to attend these meetings, about a year before they got elected.

Daniel Estulin names all those involved, with back up evidence of photocopies of invitations, minutes of meetings ,and, in many cases, photographs.

As I read more into the book, the initial aim of the Bilderbergers changed from solely creating an alliance between Europe and the United States so that they could work together on questions of policy, economics and strategy to prevent another world depression, to unifying together to actually rule the world.

By the end of the book I was thoroughly convinced that the New World Order, as it has become known, wants world domination so that the very few dirty rich people in the world can become even richer, by ensuring they have a monopoly over all types of industry.


In parts of the book, Daniel Estulin resorted to novel type writing where he described being followed by Secret Service agents in his role as an investigative journalist, and these parts were very readable.

The core parts of the book that named the Bilderbergers, past and present, were harder to read to a casual observer such as myself, but I'm sure this book would be fascinating for those who start off believing in conspiracy theories and the like.

There was a lot of American political history, which I know very little about, in the book although I did understand quite well when he talked of events in Europe and the UK, and was able to relate to what he was saying.

I've never believed in conspiracy theories, but although I struggled to get through this book, I must honestly say that my opinion has changed.

If there is indeed a Bilderberg Group, and they are seeking a One World Order, then boy are we in trouble, and have been for the last 60 years without realising it.

There is a lot more I could say about this book and its contents, but at this stage I think it better to only suggest that you read this book too, then come back and tell me if you feel the same as I do once you have read it.

Hi Izzy,

There’s nothing like a good conspiracy theory to stir the imagination, whip up fear and unrest in the masses and above all sell books. Never seemed to do Dan Brown any harm and yes, I use them too in my Inner Space books.

Let me pick up on a quote from your Hub; “If there is indeed a Bilderberg Group, and they are seeking a One World Order, then boy are we in trouble...”

See what I mean? Dear old Daniel Estulin has got you going in the direction he wants you to go. However; One World Order, should read New World Order and is the stated aim of the Illuminatti not the Bilderberger’s, although I am sure there are a great number of conspiracy theorists out there that will claim they are one and the same thing.

You say; If there is indeed a Bilderberg group; Yep! they really do exist, and yes they meet in complete secrecy and what they discuss is not a matter of public record nor is the media allowed within a country mile of the meetings hence the press paranoia of Mr. Estulin and his reporter buddies.

But if one of the stated aims of the Bildeberger’s was to prevent or avoid another major World recession then I for one would say, “Boy did they get that one wrong !”

Personally I love a good conspiracy yarn, and as I said above I use them as well, so let me add fuel to the fire, in my third Inner Space book, The All Seeing Eye, I have found a fairly convincing link between the Illuminatti, Freemasonry and a group calling themselves the ‘Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystics Shrine,’ (Shriners to you and me, a very well know group who do a lot of good work for charity ).

Sounds all innocent enough until you discover that to become a Shriner you must first be a fully paid up member and at the highest order within Freemasonry. Couple this to the fact that there are many noble and high ranking US officials up to and including Ex Presidents as well as BIG businessmen who are loyal Shriners… therefore by definition Freemasons.

Add to this that those same high ranking officials, Ex Presidents and big businessmen are also Bilderbergers......

The great difference between Daniel Estulin and me is I know I write Fiction.

IzzyM 6 years ago from UK Author

LOL, I don't know that it is all fiction! I mean the very secrecy around this group arouses suspicions. It's not as if they are a bunch of nobodys. And yes it is all tied in with freemasonry and the illuminatis (got another book review coming up soon). Anyway you sound like you know what you are talking about, so I really must recommend your book :)

Merlin Fraser 6 years ago from Cotswold Hills

There is another viewpoint on the secrecy thing, as to whether it is sinister or not I shall leave up to you.

Given that the great and the so called Good live their lives in a media goldfish bowl where their every move and utterance is torn apart for our entertainment; It's what passes for news these days!

The Bilderberg conventions are considered as an opportunity for the attendees the complete freedom to say exactly what they think on any subject without the fear of being beaten up in the press.

I'm sure after 9/11 there were a few Bilderberg members voicing an opinion that parts of the Middle East should be bombed back to the Stone age.

For me I kind of like the Bilderberg idea, it at least gives the more sane and hopefully more rational members of the group a good idea of who and where the real Head Bangers are so that they can keep an eye on them.

Hi Izzy,

Good article, suggestion.... add a video about Bilderberg to the hub...

Now there is a real conspiracy theorist!


IzzyM profile image

IzzyM 6 years ago from UK Author

Well that's certainly an alternative viewpoint, but what frightens me is the idea that the public is being manipulated. If it's true that the likes of Tony Blair, Jimmy Carter, Gordon Brown and others I can't remember off the top of my head right now, were 'invited' into office, which the Bilderbergers could ensure happened with their total control of the media, then the votes we cast to put them in office were effectively manipulated to ensure this. So it was their decision, not necessarily ours, and after their man gained power he did what they told him to do, not what he might have done if he'd been elected on his own merits without this intervention.

Hi Izzy,

Just watched the video, and all I can say is what a lot of utter B*&^#%*+% I censored myself because it's Sunday.

Trying to organise humanity to accept such a system would be like attempting to straighten worms....

And to suggest that the UN is part of such a Government... That organisation is so corrupt and disorganised I doubt they could organise an orgy in a Whorehouse !

Good laugh though...Thanks for that .

Glad you enjoyed it:)

I must confess to being a bit worried about the population reduction aspect of it all, though.

They seem to want an 80% reduction in world population, and of course this could be achieved through war or illness. The swine flu could have ben an experiment that didn't work?

If they did achieve this enormous reduction in people numbers, who is to say that they wouldn't have the ability to then control the remaining 20%?

Merlin Fraser profile image

Merlin Fraser 6 years ago from Cotswold Hills

According to the video they want the population of the World down to a managable 500 million, that's not an 80% reduction that's a 98% reduction....or the mass execution of 6 billion people....

Hell, it would kill the remaining 500 million just getting rid of all the bodies.

This is the great thing with all these conspiricy nuts...their half assed theories never stand the test of true facts....

Hope this helps you sleep at nights Izzy.

aguasilver 6 years ago from Malaga, Spain

Look up eugenics and you will see that Kissinger told the UN in 1964 that in order to operate the world efficiently we need only 500 million folk.

Eugenics is alive and well, and anybody who scoffs at the concept has simply not reasoned it through.

Swine flu was a test. It was designed to assess how many people would take the 'jab' and what effect pandemic conditions would best spread in. The virus was man made and released with two objectives, that stated above, and a quick and substantial profit for BigPharma, who manufactured the virus and the antidote.

Reduction of the world population by 80% would mostly be achieved by deploying a suitable viral killer in the areas where life is cheap and multiferous, so it would be spread in Africa, India and Asia in general.

This virus will affect lower working class people mainly, for they will live in close proximity and will respond slower due to financial insufficiency.

They will not be able to 'bunker down' or evacuate to a safer region.

The 20% who remain will be those who will have been given the antidote having been assessed as worthy and useful to the New World Order and it's cabal of followers, and those who are known to be 'on team'.

As such a reduction would lead to a 'new society' emerging, where those in power controlled everything and could decide who was fed and who was an outlaw (those would not last long) - total allegiance sworn would be demanded.

Machines and modern technology would produce what we needed, and as most of the 'remnant' allowed to live would be slave labour (but politely managed)running things would be simple.

The elite Illuminati New World Order supremacists would live as kings, and the rest would serve them without complaint.

Welcome to tomorrow.

If you honestly believe any of the crap you have just spouted above then I think I should nominate you as this weeks winner of the Hat with a Propeller on it award.

As I said above your maths are flawed to reduce the population of the world to half a billion would require a reduction of 6 Billion people....

And how in Hell could you control those that are left behind ? Spread over the surface of the planet you'd never find them all.

Of course you get them all to move to one location I suppose.

I enjoyed the truthfulness and "light" in this hub. Yes-Eugenics is alive and well here in the world. This is coming from a girl who just found the whereabouts of Aribert Heim-Dr.Death-Eugenics for the killing machines of the 3rd Reich sitting in Billings Montana under special protection.

Oh wait...did you say I had a tinfoil hat? Crazy? Nope. I have eyes that see God and satan. Yup. This is no conspiracy at all--it is truly the plan--revelations tell it well-one world monetary government-(New world order) The elite-The Bilderburg group as well as many world leaders belong to this small but powerful group. In fact when they do meet-they have CIA and FBI keeping everyone away from them and their well as their summer solstice meetings at the Bohemian Grove-California. Summer solstice? You mean Magog? Yup. They are well protected from the 'people.' They are the destroyers-minions-prophecy is coming true before our eyes-though many can't see it for what it is. This is how many will be deceived and are being deceived right now."

Do you remember John F Kennedy and his last speech that warned us of this secret society? If not go listen to the speech and why he no longer is on earth. He spoke the truth.

Secret societies-skull and bones-freemasonaries-all the same-they work for the same boss!

When you truly have GOD you will 'see' with perfect eyes of what has swept our earth. If you don't see it--pray to see it. All things dark will come to light one day. Wake up and smell the corruption-the evil-it is there whispering to you.

Eugenics can happen-it already did with the Holocaust, and people still lie and say it never happened. People push away the truth to believe lies--but lies will come to light and you will only be asked which team you are on-your allegiance-and you will be expected to prove it. While you are smelling the coffee--put your hand out and get your rfidchip--it will be the loss of oneself-your very soul.

Never takes long does it before a member of the God squad turns up in a sensible debate spouting about the end of the World. “I have eyes that see God and Satan...” As if the rest of us poor mortals are blind...Pleaseeee !

God is responsible for good and Satan is responsible for all the evil that surrounds us. If only it were as simple as that, it kind of let’s mankind off the hook doesn’t it. “Eugenics... No It wasn’t me the devil made me do it !”

“Eugenics can happen-it already did with the Holocaust.”

Did anyone on this Hub say otherwise? Nobody here was

denying that Eugenics exists and has existed since the evolution of man, what we were discussing was conspiracy theories and the mathematics of eugenic scale necessary to achieve an 80% reduction in humanity.

I have no idea what you thought we were talking about. However you do help to make a couple of points when you mention the Nazi Holocaust. Point one; The Nazi’s were not some sort of Satan worshipping fanatics, for the most part I’m sure a lot of them were regular church goers who believed they were in some sort of distorted way doing God’s work. Point two, The Nazis had a very good go at wiping out an entire race of people and yes they managed to kill millions. By any standards known to man they set up a very efficient system to achieve their objective but they failed. What we were theorising would require a machine to eliminate Billions.

As Evil as I think man can be to man I am not convinced that there is anybody out there capable of such an act. Don’t get me wrong, I also believe that we already have the means of carrying it out such destruction be it chemical, nuclear or biological but for pity’s sake please have the courage to recognise that MAN is capable of creating and distributing evil all by himself he does not need any help from a mythical biblical being, except as an excuse !

Hi Merlin,

Having read your pages a bit, you seem to believe that the Masonic/Illuninati link exists and look to sell books about it.

Why would you protest my exposition?

Are you a Mason?

But of course you would never confess to that anyway...


Bambino 6 years ago

Why do you say that if Merlin was a Mason he wouldnt canfess it? why wouldnt he? My Hubby was one ...gave it up for reasons better known unto himself ...but was never afraid to confess his involvement ,there is nothing bad about them..but then I digress from the Hubbs subject,sorry!!

Merlin Fraser profile image

Merlin Fraser 6 years ago from Cotswold Hills

Hi John,

Not sure that I do believe about the link, if you look back at my comments on this hub I said like Dan Brown and many others I use existing conspiracy theories and weave them into my Fictional stories.

There's nothing quite like a good healthy dose of paranoia to sell books. Works for Dan Brown why not Little Old Me ?

Look at Angels and Demons; where he has the Illuminatti as some sort of vengeful army out to destroy the Roman Catholic church. Where is that written as one of the stated aims of the Illuminatti ? Great story but pure fiction nonetheless.

As it happens I am not a Mason, to be a Mason you have to swear an oath to God and as a Pagan in all good conscience I could not do that. But my father and several friends are true and loyal Masons and I believe them to be good men whose intentions are pure and honourable.

There are many things said about the Masons and Freemasonry, which may or may not be true, the fact that the Freemasons themselves neither acknowledge nor deny the accusations merely fuel the paranoia that surrounds them, secretly I think they rather enjoy it.

As to whether my fictional account of the conspiratorial links between the Freemasons, the Illuminatti and the Bilderbergers are any more believable than the others you will have to read for yourself.

Merlin Fraser profile image

Merlin Fraser 6 years ago from Cotswold Hills

Great Hub you have here Izzy, just wish a few more would join in.

The Illuminati , in actual fact is the Latin plural illuminates; literary translation “enlightened.”

The Illuminati, The Enlightened Ones or the Illuminated Ones. Historically formed in 1776, which by sheer coincidence is the same year as the American Declaration of Independence. Other coincidences frequently appear , such as; “It is necessary to establish a universal regime over the whole world .” An Illuminati phrase often misquoted written by them in 1780. A mere two years later one of the founding fathers suggested the following motto for the Great Seal ; “Novus Ordo Seclorum.” Translated it means; "A New Order of the Ages." Has kind of a familiar ring to it, wouldn’t you say ? Nice too when you also see appear on the reverse side of a US Dollar Bill.

So you can see that with a vivid imagination, all sorts of dark conspiracy theories are possible. Add in people like Daniel Estulin, Dan Brown and me, plus many, many more novelists, and let’s not forget Hollywood as well it’s not hard to have people constantly looking under their beds.

Of course, as usual the real truth is much simpler than that but nonetheless interesting but we do have to go back to the church and organised religion for the answer.

We need look no further than the clash between Science and the Church, predominantly the Roman Catholic Church and various Popes. Initially the church embraced science, even funded it as long as it did not contradict their understanding of anything. Such as the Earth was the centre of the Universe, the stars were fixed and the Sun and the planets revolved around the Earth. Or that according to the church the Earth is only 6,000 years old and everything was created in 6 days. That means that Dinosaurs and man walked the Earth at the same time, funny how they never got a mention in the Bible... but that’s another story.

Such was the power of the RC Church at the time, remember the Inquisition, anything the Pope disagreed with was heresy, recant or die, or sometimes recant and die.

Of course science is going to clash with religious teachings. Science is fact, based upon experiment and proof. So it was inevitable that in fear men of science or individual thought were going to be forced underground to form secret societies. They were, after all, smart men who didn’t want to die a horrible tortured death.

I have never heard any mention that the Illuminati swore any Anti Christ or Anti God type oath; doesn’t mean they didn’t of course, I think what you refer to is that among many quoted Illuminati thoughts was one that stated the World might be a happier more stable place without religion, and who could argue against that.

Ghost Whisper 77 6 years ago from The U.S. Government protects Nazi War Criminals

Firstly Merlin, I will not take offense to your mockings of me loving God-you are mocking God-not me-I will not take it personal-you will have to take that one up with God one day.(chuckle) This is more of a sensible debate than what you realize my friend.

You are not reading correctly nor did you read what I said about the Holocaust nor do you understand why I am bringing it up here. I am quite aware of the discussion here on depopulation/and what you call conspiracy. It is not a conspiracy if it is the TRUTH my dear sir. I love to say that ;) I have an inside look my friend whether you believe or not.

Please do take the time to re-read again and connect the dots-there were reasons for me bringing this up. You should neither take offense to the comments of 'masons' all being bad-evil because there are a few that 'think' they are genuine with their good works but one hand does not know what the other hand is doing--similar to our government.

Freemasonry is a very secretive institution, members at one level do not know what members at another level are doing. It is an organization which is full of good deeds at the lower and middle levels (God), while its motives and deeds at the highest levels gear towards the dark side.(Evil)

As you shake your head about those who believe in God and the existence of satan-an outside force that swirls around us daily-Please continue to shake your head in regards to to many of our world leaders who meet at the Bohemian Grove each summer-because they don't shake their heads in regards to evil--they fuel on it.Can you imagine? (Past Presidents and elites there among the list-Nixon etc) Do so--because they are there each summer.Blocked from public. Bush's?Rockefellars? Kissinger? our world leaders honoring an owl out in the woods of California-celebrating the summer solstice and cremation of care? Well do so because they have been doing this for years in secret and also doing politics in there concealed and in secret. They withhold from the public-they supress the news-concealed from people-secrets-tightly knit group of elites-illuminati exists.

Watching our leaders truly enjoying plays that depicit the burning of effigys of children? Do you not believe that also? You are not well researched on many truths sir. Why am I bringing this subject up? To show you that you may not believe in the forces of God or Satan--but even they do. Eugenics is only a small part of this but the ultimate plan for those they feel are not deemed worthy to live-that includes you too by the way-is depopulation. It can be accomplished in many ways and has been implemented on many levels already.

We have a SS Nazi Officer who is sitting up in Billings Montana under a US citizenship at this time-very protected-he has mentioned enough in regards to plan/eugenics/nwo (including the flouride in toothpaste and why it is used inside that tube) I clearly see why he was protected-he was given life for his knowledge of eugenics. He is very educated on killing and he mentioned being in the Bohemian Grove three times-most if not all connected to the grove are considered darkness to me. They belong to a secret society-the one that JFK spoke and warned the American citizens about before his assassination. I know who the 'secret society' well as others. Was JFK a tinfoil hat conspiracy theroist also? Please do listen to his speech and listen to his speech to the American people. Apparently, he did not go along with who was trying to pull his strings. I truly understand why he is no longer here. JFK's speech below. Disenters are silenced.

The Illuminati? The Bilderberg group is only one of many included-A secret society-a cartel of international and private bankers and industrialists-they hold the money-they make the laws. The Federal Reserve? It is as federal as Federal express!Private bankers own the Federal Reserve. Do you really think that it is our congress that pushes the laws? The private bankers own us--do your homework before a debate.

A few of these elite-illuminati-Rockefeller, Rothschild, Morgan, Lazard, Warburg, Schroder and Schiff....I could go on but won't...there are many more.

The United States Supreme Court endorsed aspects of eugenics. Infamous 1927 decision, Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote, "It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind…. Three generations of imbeciles are enough."

By 1926, Rockefeller had donated some $410,000 -- almost $4 million in 21st-Century money -- to hundreds of German researchers-Eugenics. The Rockefeller Foundation helped found the German eugenics program and even funded the program that Josef Mengele worked in before he went to Auschwitz. The Rockefeller group was the largest monetary contributor. Do your homework please. The US brought over these Nazi eugenicists/scientists under now declassified documents called "Project Paperclip." These are official DECLASSIFIED released documents sir. They whitewashed files-bleached out information and added fake work histories on these eugenicists...brought them here right under the nose of Truman and the American people.

Please do your homework and research this for yourself. It would be very useful for you to learn. For what is darkness-will all come to light eventually. It will come to light for you also.

Have a good day and a pleasure to educate you on the truth of eugenics and depopulation-it is alive and well in the US also! :)

Hitler proudly bragged about how closely he followed the progress of the American eugenics movement. During the nuremburg trials they quoted American eugenics as their defense.(Do your research-follow it back and see for yourself)

btw Aquasilver-You are quite correct about viral assaults-reduction of the world population by 80% with these type of assaults. Swine flu shot is one of the biggys but there are many ways! Yes it is quite easy to reduce the worlds population without even having to point a finger to the murderer. I can tell you easily how genocide and depopulation can occur--in fact--I am going to search for my story 'Behind the wall.' (On genocidal-eugenics implementation) I call it 'behind the wall' because this is what happened with the great depression. Many things were held purposely behind the wall by whom? The illuminati/elite of course!

Merlin Fraser 6 years ago from Cotswold Hills

I am not mocking God... For me there is no God to mock. God was invented by man but that is hardly the point of this debate.

I can understand why any closed door session of politicians and thinkers would come up with a theory that to depopulate the world by 80% was a good idea. I am not condoning the idea merely saying I can understand why some might say it. After all the World’s population has more than doubled just in my own lifetime and is predicted to reach 10 Billion by 2050.

Birth control isn’t working, scientists and doctors aren’t exactly helping either, having children is not a right yet we allow medicine to artificially over rule mother nature. Same with death generation after generation we are living longer courtesy of the same group of medical scientists and doctors.

Seems to me that there is a couple of flaws in your theories. Firstly, America was not the only country to grab their fair share of Nazi scientists, all the winners had a few as well. The USA and Russia would not have reached orbit without them. But that was 65 years ago, if your Government was seriously working on a Eugenics solution to Global Warming why have the waited so long to put it into effect ? Indeed why are they still waiting ?

Secondly if good old JFK found out about all these evil goings on and wanted to warn the rest of us about it , good for him, maybe he was pissed off because he wasn’t invited, who knows ? He was shot in 1963, why to shut him up ? Too late he’d already made his speech. Again, if he saw all this dark evil heading our way again why is it taking so long to get here ?

Sorry but it just doesn’t add up.

Finally for this session, I have no idea what goes on at Bohemian Grove but by your description it has nothing whatsoever to do with Pagan celebration of the Summer Solstice. Sounds more like some Nut Jobs idea of bonding with nature rituals, an American invention I believe.

Besides you can’t have it both ways, don’t all US Presidents and other officials have to swear an oath of allegiance on the Bible.? If that’s the case and you can prove they are taking part in Pagan or Satanic rituals, even for fun surely that’s grounds for impeachment. If it were true the world press would have a field day. Or they all in on the conspiracy as well ?

Okay...I see why you are blind and not seeing it.You are busy yelling-with ears closed-eyes squeezed shut tightly with fear-your refusal to do any research before screaming about tinfoil hats tells me much about you. You also do not have the ability to read and assimilate my comments correctly-did you get a swine flu shot by any chance-just curious? he he he. ;)

One day you may calm down and do the research and stop acting out of fear-because the information IS out there and not always on the front page-there are even photographs of Nixon-Bush Sr. and son etc...etc..many inside the grove-and it has made it to newspapers.

You have not done your research my friend so what you yell is uneducated without full research. You refuse to research. Why? That is a question for you not me. I already have the answers.

I gracefully bow out with Merlin because he chooses to sleep--it is safer that way. Yes Izzy! Rupert Murdoch--you see it also!

The truth is there for those who choose to research these things. Many are afraid of the truth that is right there hiding in plain sight. God and satan exist and work through many--the revelations--the one world monetary government--it is all mentioned and the blueprints have been implemented--they are already laid down--darkness. You asked why is it taking so long to get here? Are you kidding me? Are there people who really are that blind that they can't see it??? YIKES!

You don't believe in God but you believe in Global warming??? waaaaa???? LMAO! Bowing out and ghosty is cracking right up and flying out of here to finish her hubdeedub!

I have my eyes shut in Fear...Fear of what ? I'm not the one bouncing up down screaming Conspiracy and seeing Goolies and Ghostliest under the bed !

It is all written and prophesied; where ? And if you say the Bible I really will Hurl !

There is no God and No Devil controlling our every move. If you are right and it is written that the most privileged half million are going to wipe out the six Billion rest of us then this will be no act of God or Satan but by your fellow man.

I agree entirely with you there Merlin! It will be man himself who destroys man, not some imagined illumary from above or below.

Hi Ghost,

I have no wish to Hijack Izzy's conspiracy Hub or turn this into a two way battle between you and me; but your reference to my happy hurling merely confirms my earlier suspicion that what I cannot see is all written the Bible.

Would I be correct ? If so please explain something to me, the people who wrote the stories in the Bible 5,000 odd years ago were a bunch of nomadic tribesmen wandering around a desert and thought the Earth was flat.

Most of what they thought and wrote about in those stories has been debunked over and over again by man’s increasing scientific knowledge of the world around him and yet many people, including you presumably, continue to believe that this book is some sort of ancient doomsday almanac.

Why ? This is quite a serious question and is not intended to belittle you or your beliefs, as I have said many times before in other Hubs, what you and or anybody else believe is for you and you alone and is none of my business. But I have a burning desire to learn and understand why in these enlightened times why so many people cling to the notion that those of ancient times knew more than we do now.

Very interesting and thought provoking Hub. I have heard of the Bilderberg Group, but not this book. Now I intend to read it. And from some of the comments above, I am compelled to start new research. Thank you very much for this Hub!

It's all fascinating Cathi! I am pretty new to the subject myself s I stated in the hub, but really read this book! It's an eye-opener and so far I've no reason to disbelieve any of it.

In all the excitement I forgot to ask another question that's been bugging me.

If this so called Elite group have all the answers and have these wonderful plans ready in place to control the ecconomies of the world how come they missed the biggest crisis is Bankinking this century, not to mention the worldwide recession that followed ?

Perhaps that was a financially-controlled capitalist plot? It hurt the masses far more than it ever hurt those at the top.

Merlin Fraser profile image

Merlin Fraser 6 years ago from Cotswold Hills

Possibly Izzy but the point I am trying to make is the consiracy theorists credit these shadow people with far more smarts than they deserve.

Nobody and I really mean nobody has that much influence or power, if they had they would have used it long before now.

As I said right at the begining, scaring the crap out of people is just a means to help sell their books !

IzzyM profile image

IzzyM 6 years ago from UK Author

I think I understand what you are saying - that people write books to sell based on a subject that many people believe in but has no proven fact in reality.

The very words 'conspiracy theory' (for example) have been succesfully linked with sideward thinking people on the fringe of society - people without a correctly functioning brain cell between them - the 'lunatic fringe'.

Who suggesed this?

Was it by any chance something you saw on TV, or in a book, or in the newspapers?

Bet you can't remember for I sure as Hell can't.

Years ago I read a book by...what was his name...the TV anchorman or reporter..David Icke. I thought it well thought out and interesting,as well as shocking, but shortly afterwards there was a public outcry through both TV and newspapers about how he was suffering a mental illness.

And guess what? I believed them and immediately dismissed the book.

THAT is the power of the Press and those who control it.

In actual fact, despite comments made above about me not sleeping at night, I couldn't be bothered getting all het up about it or joining movements. I just accept tht things are not as they seem.

More power to the elbow of those who can be bothered doing something - anything - to spread awareness.

Maybe that is why I wrote this book review? Who knows? In my own lazy way maybe I am doing something too.

I heard only today, and don't know if it is fact or fiction, that Daniel Estulin himself is living in Marbella surrounded by security guards for his own safety for having published his book.

Marbella, the rich people's playground, but not worth so much when you can't have freedom.

By writing his book, he has given up his personal security and freedom to move around like the rest of us? Takes money to pay for that, but can't be worth the money he may have got by writing about it. Unless what he said was the truth?

Merlin Fraser profile image

Merlin Fraser 6 years ago from Cotswold Hills

Also good publicity for his book too ! How else could he afford Marbella with his personal Goon Squad ?

Call me a cynic if you like but the information in his book is now public knowledge, true or false, so who is supposed to be after him ?

If the people in his book are are all powerful surely his story would never have seen the light of day and he himself removed from existence.

At least I'm honest enough to tell you I write fiction !

I think why the media didn't like David Icke was because he only wore turquoise clothes and reckoned he was the second coming !

I didn't like him because he was always surrounded by beutiful women.... Jealousy is a terrible thing !

Looks like it's just you and me Izzy....We've bored everybody to death.

Naaaah...we just haven't been found yet! There are loads of people who might still come along and add to this debate, and I hope they do, variety is the the spice of life as they say. Tell you what Merlin, to save you checking back all the time I will email if a new face comments, or even an older face. Looks you you enjoy a good debate too.

It is my understanding that the Bilderburgers are real, I'm not saying that those who actually still beleive their vote counts for something, or that money is'nt really fake are wrong, but go look for yourself folks!! There is a whole world of stuff goin on in the world that most of you dont know about! How on earth can anyone say people like me are just conspiricy nuts when they only get their news and veiws of the world from the corperate tele and/or the paper??

For example (I could go on and on), this link will take you to a real happening that only happened a few weeks ago, that has a massive impact on the Law and how British courts are acting illegaly for and on behalf of the (alleged)New World Order, and how some people are actually fighting the New World Order (that apparently only exists in the deluded minds of conspiricy nuts)and winning!! Ask yourself, "do I beleive that conspiricies have never happened, or won't happen again??"

Merlin Fraser profile image

Merlin Fraser 6 years ago from Cotswold Hills

OK I looked at the link and watched it twice, and I'm about as confused now as I ever want to be. What's their point ?

The fact that the English legal system is FUBAR ? Hardly the greatest revelation I've heard lately !

They understand the Bilderberg meetings are real ! Of course they are real, nobody denies that they take place nor who attends. The conspiracy crap comes from the paranoia of what is being discussed at the meetings and are the great and the good of World Governments, who attend, under some sort of extraordinary control by a powerful outside force.

As for ever thinking that democracy thrives and we have a vote in the outcome, I might suggest they wake up and listen; “ If voting in anything made the slightest bit of difference they wouldn’t let us do it.” That ain’t conspiracy that’s a fact !

Merlin Fraser profile image

Merlin Fraser 6 years ago from Cotswold Hills

Thought I'd better add some extra clification just in case;

If anybody is actually interested in what the crappy video was about , or what point it was trying to make.

Common Law is the interpretation of the law as given by judges rather than the actual law as it appears written.

A common law argument argues that it is unfair for any future court to treat similar facts differently on different occasions.

Or put a simpler way, it what all the money gets spent on when opposing lawyers argue over spit hairs.

It’s what makes, ‘Thou Shan’t Kill,’ what it is today, just so long as your lawyer can prove you did it the same way as some other jerk who got off.

The speech, in part, that GhostWhisperer77 is referring to:

"The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it’s in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know[...]" (and only 4 paragraphs later), "It requires a change in outlook, a change in tactics, a change in missions--by the government, by the people, by every businessman or labor leader, and by every newspaper. For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence--on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations[...]" The words of John F. Kennedy, April 27, 1961.

“Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government."

- Henry Kissinger in an address to the Bilderberger meeting at Evian, France, May 21, 1992.

Fast forward to 2001. Can you think of an event which fits with his volition? What's this World Government he's talking about?

Oh, sorry, it's all fiction. Kissinger didn't really say this did he, and there's no plan for a World Government is there?

The Bilderberg Group denied its very existence for 50 years. Why? Good deeds have no need of secrecy. Everyone, including the ENTIRE mainstream press denied they even existed. Now they are forced to admit their existence, and even publish a (partial) list of attendees.

And when a secret is out in the open, there is no more need for secrecy. So how many Press members will be invited to report on this year's meeting??

AntiBilderberger 5 years ago

Not sure about the press members, normally it's every year the New York Times reporters who are invited. Found some info already about their plans for 2011:

Nice hub indeed, it could be more extended tough with other books that talk about the Bilderberg group. Keep up the good work!

Well yes, but this is a review of one particular book, and I haven't read the rest. Thanks for commenting all the same - food for thought :)
