You are not free / tu non sei libero

It’s been in existence since 1952. It’s made up of about a hundred people: leaders in high finance, government, economic newspapers. It’s called “Bilderberg Group”. It meets every year in a hotel protected by the CIA. The names of its members are well known. Those who are part of it are obliged to keep silent.
Nothing comes out in the press. Whatever they decide, they talk about, can change the outcomes for the planet.
It’s a semi-secret club that we know nothing about. Between 31 May and 3 June they met in Istanbul. According to unofficial sources, the Group examined possible operations against Iran, the development of energy and Turkey’s entrance into Europe.
To this event Gelli is only allowed to carry a suitcase. In the Group there are a few Italians. I’ll state their names straight away: Mario Monti (Bocconi), John Elkann (Fiat), Franco Bernabè (Rothschild), Tommaso Padoa Schioppa (Minister of Finance) and Giulio Tremonti (vice president of the Lower House).
No outsider was present at the meeting. Thus we can only presume. So let’s presume.
Let’s presume that SchioppaTremonti act like a single person. They are sent to that TV place to spend a passionate weekend on the Bosphorus. Let’s presume that an organisation not elected by anyone influences the Government.
Let’s presume that one hundred people control the economic and financial information in the world. Let’s presume that when they meet they are always protected by the American government.
After all this presuming I would like to ask the two employees Schioppa and Tremonti. Were you in Istanbul? Were you wearing hoods? Have you participated at other Bilderberg meetings while you’ve held public office? If you were present, tell the Italians immediately the intentions and the contents of the meetings, or otherwise resign from the Government and from the Parliament.
State officials cannot have secret. It’s against democracy. There have been writings about the danger of a new P2 in which, as usual, high level State people could be involved.
Judge Woodcock has denounced the presence in Italy of “Masonic Lodges inside which there are activities directed at interfering in the functions of constitutional bodies, of the public administration, of public and economic bodies as well as essential public services of national interest.”
Bilderbergists, Lodge-ists, Masons, crypto-spies, occult decision makers, deviated services, unfaithful officials, Telecom security operators, you are making me get orchitis. May the light of the sun transfigure you and above all if you are reading my words, go and take a running jump.

Don't care about it... Italy now seems like a baby that needs still to growe up, but the things here, in the Mediterranean, and in Europe are getting better. I'm sure. I think it's normal to be scared from things you can't know or understand.
Hold on, Italy

Vivimos en un mundo virtual. No sabemos cómo nos manejan un grupo de personas.

Algún día despertaremos... o nos gusta estar dormidos con los ojos cerrados por miedo a abrirlos y no gustarnos con lo que nos encontraremos.

Let’s assume a new game is available to the public (Under Government License obviously!) and it is called Toto-Poli-Poker.
Cost of Politics is escalating at a horrendous daily rate, while the Institutions (In Italy especially!) are crumbling at a directly proportional rate.
Let’s assume Italians want to gamble on them!
The cost of Politicians is skyrocketing; a bounty of a Million Euros per Political Figure (Backed by derivative issued bonds, covered by actual Toto-Poli-Poker ticket sold to gamblers!) has been issued.
Any Elected or Party Selected (Each Politicians has been randomly issued a number from 1 to 1500, nominative based!), any political figure, found with a flat-line hearth rate, shall be eligible to the above mentioned monetary prize (A minimum combination of three number per week!).
Cost of ticket is 2 Euros per combination, numbers available from 1 to 1500 (See Numbered Deck of Political figure at the
Cost saving to be compiled upon discovery of flat-line Political Figure (Cost Saving may vary for Individual due to Status Ranking).

Hello there,
It appears loud and clear that by now Italian Institutions are and were, to truthful a Business, although with a slight deviation toward a closed loop Business.
Since this is the case, I would recommend that Business Managers, be treated as such, and therefore the steak holders in the mention Business be held accountable for success and failures (Would like to see the successes!).

Bilderberg: The ultimate conspiracy theory

By Jonathan Duffy
BBC News Online Magazine

The Bilderberg group, an elite coterie of Western thinkers and power-brokers, has been accused of fixing the fate of the world behind closed doors. As the organisation marks its 50th anniversary, rumours are more rife than ever.
Given its reputation as perhaps the most powerful organisation in the world, the Bilderberg group doesn't go a bundle on its switchboard operations.

Telephone inquiries are met with an impersonal female voice - the Dutch equivalent of the BT Callminder woman - reciting back the number and inviting callers to "leave a message after the tone".

Anyone who accidentally dialled the number would probably think they had stumbled on just another residential answer machine.

Leiden in Holland, the inauspicious base of the Bilderberg group
But behind this ultra-modest façade lies one of the most controversial and hotly-debated alliances of our times.

On Thursday the Bilderberg group marks its 50th anniversary with the start of its yearly meeting.

For four days some of the West's chief political movers, business leaders, bankers, industrialists and strategic thinkers will hunker down in a five-star hotel in northern Italy to talk about global issues.

What sets Bilderberg apart from other high-powered get-togethers, such as the annual World Economic Forum (WEF), is its mystique.

Not a word of what is said at Bilderberg meetings can be breathed outside. No reporters are invited in and while confidential minutes of meetings are taken, names are not noted.

The shadowy aura extends further - the anonymous answerphone message, for example; the fact that conference venues are kept secret. The group, which includes luminaries such as Henry Kissinger and former UK chancellor Kenneth Clarke, does not even have a website.

This year Bilderberg has announced a list of attendees
They include BP chief John Browne, US Senator John Edwards, World Bank president James Wolfensohn and Mrs Bill Gates

In the void created by such aloofness, an extraordinary conspiracy theory has grown up around the group that alleges the fate of the world is largely decided by Bilderberg.

In Yugoslavia, leading Serbs have blamed Bilderberg for triggering the war which led to the downfall of Slobodan Milosevic. The Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, the London nail-bomber David Copeland and Osama Bin Laden are all said to have bought into the theory that Bilderberg pulls the strings with which national governments dance.

And while hardline right-wingers and libertarians accuse Bilderberg of being a liberal Zionist plot, leftists such as activist Tony Gosling are equally critical.

A former journalist, Mr Gosling runs a campaign against the group from his home in Bristol, UK.

"My main problem is the secrecy. When so many people with so much power get together in one place I think we are owed an explanation of what is going on.

Timothy McVeigh was among those who believed the conspiracy theory
Mr Gosling seizes on a quote from Will Hutton, the British economist and a former Bilderberg delegate, who likened it to the annual WEF gathering where "the consensus established is the backdrop against which policy is made worldwide".

"One of the first places I heard about the determination of US forces to attack Iraq was from leaks that came out of the 2002 Bilderberg meeting," says Mr Gosling.

But "privacy, rather than secrecy", is key to such a meeting says Financial Times journalist Martin Wolf, who has been invited several times in a non-reporting role.

"The idea that such meetings cannot be held in private is fundamentally totalitarian," he says. "It's not an executive body; no decisions are taken there."

As an up-and-coming statesmen in the 1950s, Denis Healey, who went on to become a Labour chancellor, was one of the four founding members of Bilderberg (which was named after the hotel in Holland where the first meeting was held in 1954).

The alternative - the WEF welcomes journalists
His response to claims that Bilderberg exerts a shadowy hand on the global tiller is met with characteristic bluntness. "Crap!"

"There's absolutely nothing in it. We never sought to reach a consensus on the big issues at Bilderberg. It's simply a place for discussion," says Lord Healey.

Formed in the spirit of post-war trans-Atlantic co-operation, the idea behind Bilderberg was that future wars could be prevented by bringing power-brokers together in an informal setting away from prying eyes.

"Bilderberg is the most useful international group I ever attended. The confidentiality enabled people to speak honestly without fear of repercussions.

"In my experience the most useful meetings are those when one is free to speak openly and honestly. It's not unusual at all. Cabinet meetings in all countries are held behind closed doors and the minutes are not published."

That activists have seized on Bilderberg is no surprise to Alasdair Spark, an expert in conspiracy theories.

"The idea that a shadowy clique is running the world is nothing new. For hundreds of years people have believed the world is governed by a cabal of Jews.

"Shouldn't we expect that the rich and powerful organise things in their own interests. It's called capitalism."

This is the link to an article written by an
investigative journalist at the end of this year's
Bilderberg meeting.

He has been following the Bilderberg activities
for years and has also written a book about this very powerful and dangerous secret group, of unelected individuals, which covertly manipulates world events through its agents, unknown to the vast majority of the people that these individuals pretend to represent in public, in the various countries where they operate.¬icias=ver&id=344&idioma=en

Hello there,
In the real world, as soon as Anyone assume Something, that individual is dead wrong!
Since we are talking about Italy, let’s assume anything, and the first rule of assuming is that anything goes and furthermore in Italy anything is possible.
Reading Italian Newspapers, I can’t conceive how anyone can consider the Country Civilized, Democratic and part of the G8.
The most astonishing facts I read, were not scandals, corruption, nepotism, abuse of office etc etc, but the complete apathy of Politicians and the Government.
Institutions are falling apart, unions are striking in the basic services (Alitalia, Gas Stations) an entire Region is submersed by garbage, Government is not legislating due to precarious majority (Can fall at any session?) criminals and homicides is becoming hourly routine, and nothing happen!
But let’s assume, Government Power Company is gauging Italians (Nothing will happen!).
Mr. Dalema has secrets Bank Accounts in Brazil (Nothing will happen!)
Mr. Berlusconi and Company will stop paying taxes (They are already doing it!) Nothing happen!
It is unbelievably astonishing the fact that this Country is going full steam to the bottom, and Nothing Happen.
The people at the wheel chug along as usual, while all the promises?
Italy has been fixed, now Italy can start growing again, Remember?
Let’s assume this was a Civilized, Democratic and of the G8 Country, what do you expect it would happen?
Rest Mr. Grillo’s case.
