Okay, let’s get this through our heads… at some point, the people we trust to take care of boring rubbish like economics, philosophy, law, culture – you know, the framework of a civil polity, the stuff we tuned out in favour of watching Canadian Idol – those people looked around and realized they run things. One doesn’t even have to get into speculating about shadowy cabals or the like, because humanity is self-sorting, we all know ‘birds of a feather’ form their own cliques, and these things are done in the light of day and published – albeit in academic journals we never read. The experts, public intellectuals and captains of industry to whom the doors of international conferences and economic symposia swing wide hold particular ideologies as we all do, implicitly or explicitly, and if those ideas are incorrect, then there is no check on their implementation if we default on our own place in this dialogue and decide that they know best. Do they?
The report below is a prime example. The Bilderberg group, which is a meeting of the top tiers of government and industry held every year under tight security, vehemently denies setting policy. They have avoided public scrutiny for so long because they bring media media owners into the fold, swearing them to secrecy on their proceedings. And yet here is Etienne Davignon, admitting that the idea of a trans-European currency was an object of debate at the meeting.
Today, as with the introduction of the Euro, a new solution is being offered to the world, a panacea to an economic crisis: a global bank, a world currency, and centralization of power – utter control of the flows of world capital! All right out in the open. In response to a crisis created by the same people, we’re giving a trillion dollars to the institutions Bruce Cockburn took apart in his song, ‘They Call it Democracy’; institutions of economic warfare that use debt to extort troubled economies into handing over control of their infrastructure.
We’re not witnessing a bailout. We’re witnessing financial terrorism, a money bomb dropped in the midst of weakened markets to crush them on the shoals of deflation and inflation, with the end in view of a new micromanaged society: an idea of a new world order so finely controlled by debt, data mining, and propaganda that medieval feudalism pales in comparison. So are we serfs to these people through inclination or apathy – or do we take the challenge and stand up for ourselves, study, build community, think in rational principles, trade with real currency? We are not powerless. The ancien régime will not rise.

According to Belgian viscount and current Bilderberg-chairman Étienne Davignon, the Euro was helped created by the Bilderberg Group in the 1990’s. He admitted this in an interview to the EUobserver online newspaper on March 16 2009.
While talking about his expectations of the EU-summit on March 19 and the G20-meeting in London two weeks later, he comments:
‘These two meeting are going to be important because of what (the media) will say- is it a lot of jaw-jaw and everything will get worse? Or maybe it’s the beginning of a realisation that the world will no longer be the same and we are going to do something about it.’
After this he brings the annual Bilderberg-meetings into the conversation, saying something that was considered a ‘conspiracy theory’ for the past couple of decades, but is now confirmed by none other than the current chairman of the secretive group. Here is the actual quote from the article:
‘A meeting in June in Europe of the Bilderberg Group- an informal club of leading politicians, businessmen and thinkers chaired by Mr. Davignon- could also ‘improve understanding’ on future action, in the same way it helped create the Euro in the 1990s, he said.’
The article concludes with Davignon’s assessment that:
‘People understand confusedly that there is a change (in the air). (…). But no government will satisfy the reactions of the people. They have the greatest reticence and cynicism against everybody who holds responsibility.’
