The Bilderberg Agenda


What is the agenda of the Bilderberg Group?

According to the official Bilderberg website: The conference is a forum for informal discussions about megatrends and major issues facing the world… There is no detailed agenda, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued… The Bilderberg conference has one main goal: to foster discussion and dialogue. There is no desired outcome, there is no closing statement, there are no resolutions proposed or votes taken.

There are however, pervading ideologies of Bilderberg group members of corporate and financial globalization, support of a Western-led one world government, and the advancement and further institutionalization of global governance. In short, the Bilderberg group’s agenda is for a New World Order, the same agenda proscribed by other groups of shadowy elites such as the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, and perhaps even the Illuminati.

According to the research journalist Daniel Estulin, whose groundbreaking book “The True Story of the Bilderberg Group”, remains the definitive work on the subject, the Bilderberg agenda ‘wish list’ includes:

– “one international identity (observing) one set of universal values;”
– centralized control of world populations by “mind control;” in other words, controlling world public opinion;
– a New World Order with no middle class, only “rulers and servants (serfs),” and, of course, no democracy;
– “a zero-growth society” without prosperity or progress, only greater wealth and power for the rulers;
– manufactured crises and perpetual wars;
– absolute control of education to program the public mind and train those chosen for various roles;
– “centralized control of all foreign and domestic policies;” one size fits all globally;
– using the UN as a de facto world government imposing a UN tax on “world citizens;”
– expanding NAFTA and WTO globally;
– making NATO a world military;
– imposing a universal legal system; and
– a global “welfare state where obedient slaves will be rewarded and non-conformists targeted for extermination.”

To this end, the meetings each year include official ‘Key Topics of Discussion’. A list of current events or ongoing concerns for the group to focus on and exert control over.

Below is a list of the date and location of every Bilderberg Group meeting since their inception, along with their official discussion topics:
