The secretive Bilderberg Group, which is set to meet in Dresden, Germany, will discuss the possibility of mass riots as a result of wealth inequality, the migrant crisis, as well as the United Kingdom’s vote on leaving the European Union.
The influential meeting of bankers, politicians, media heads and business moguls has released its official participant list and agenda for 2016.
As per usual, the list of topics to be discussed is extremely vague;
• Current events
• Europe: migration, growth, reform, vision, unity
• Middle East
• US political landscape, economy: growth, debt, reform
• Cyber security
• Geo-politics of energy and commodity prices
• Precariat and middle class
• Technological innovation
The annual Bilderberg meeting is definitely an exclusive affair, whether it’s seen as an opportunity for the world’s power players to informally converse about important global trends, or just a secret gathering of the Illuminati puppet masters who custom-build history to suit their mysterious agenda.
“No minutes will be taken. No reporters will be allowed in. There will be no opening press conference, no closing statement, and participants will be asked not to quote each other,” the UK Independent says of the 64th Bilderberg Conference, which began on Thursday at the Taschenbergpalais hotel in Dresden, Germany.
The UK Guardian explains that much of the secrecy that fuels conspiracy theories is meant to avoid difficult encounters with the press, a prospect that might otherwise keep many influential guests from attending: “No one wants the Danish minister of justice or the deputy prime minister of Turkey to have to field awkward questions, such as: ‘Where do you stand on corporate lobbying?’ Especially when they’re standing between the chairman of HSBC and the president of Siemens.”
