El Maximo Líder Knows What Time It Is

Even broken clocks are right twice daily — Fidel Castro fascinated by book on Bilderberg Club. The article discusses "a theory long popular both among the far left and far right: that the shadowy Bilderberg Group has become a kind of global government, controlling not only international politics and economics, but even culture."

Mentioned are the "'sinister cliques and the Bilderberg lobbyists' manipulating the public 'to install a world government that knows no borders and is not accountable to anyone but its own self.'" Also noted is that "Castro suggested that the esoteric Frankfurt School of socialist academics worked with members of the Rockefeller family in the 1950s to pave the way for rock music to 'control the masses' by diverting attention from civil rights and social injustice." (I first learned of the Frankfurt School, and its Cultural Marxism, in Patrick Buchanan's The Death of the West: How Dying Populations and Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Country and Civilization.)

"The Bilderberg conspiracy theory has been popular on both extremes of the ideological spectrum, even if they disagree on just what the group wants to do," the article informs us. "Leftists accuse the group of promoting capitalist domination, while some right-wing websites argue that the Bilderberg club has imposed Barack Obama on the United States to advance socialism." They've succeeded in masking corporatism as "capitalism" to leftists and as "socialism" to rightists.

Fidel might be a socialist but he has got to be pretty cagey defying his next door neighbor all these years.

Marx knew that global Capitalism would be the penultimate step to Communism.

Between Clinton's neo-liberal trade policies, Bush's militarism to shore up the beachheads, and now whatever Obama is doing - we're on the path. So it makes sense that both the left and the right are suspicious of Bilderberg, etc.

However, charlatans like Alex Jones don't help.

Castro is a murderer and a thief. How he's still alive beats me. Almost makes one wonder if Castro is controlled opposition, too.

Fidel is a tyrant, and I am skeptical of conspiracy theories in general. That said, there is no question that there has been a huge deception in this country about capitalism. What we have now is corporatism, which is not the same thing. Corporatism is nothing more than a variant of socialism -- one that allows for private ownership by large corporations and collectives that are in close coordination with the State. Corporatism was the form of ownership endorsed by fascism/national socialism, while Communism was the form of ownership endorsed by international socialism (Marxism).

I would urge caution when considering the theory that Bilderberg may be a top down cabal where the great and the good go to get their orders.

I think a much likelier explanation is that in democracies politicians who wish to be (re-)elected have no choice but to heavily sugarcoat their public utterances.

Given that we know that politicians lie like rugs to the public, might it not be likelier that they meet behind closed doors so as to have franker, if not non-psychotic, discussions?

The question I've had for years, & have never received an answer to, is: why do the conspiracy nuts think that they are worth conspiring against?

Because they're not nuts.

"If we are on the outside, we assume a conspiracy is the perfect working of a scheme. Silent nameless men with unadorned hearts. A conspiracy is everything that ordinary life is not. It’s the inside game, cold, sure, undistracted, forever closed off to us. We are the flawed ones, the innocents, trying to make some rough sense of the daily jostle. Conspirators have a logic and a daring beyond our reach. All conspiracies are the same taut story of men who find coherence in some criminal act."

- Don Delillo, "In Dallas," Libra (1988)

We read about conspiracies everyday, like yesterday's ignored news that Israel has infiltrated America's "free" press, yet we dimiss those who report on them as "conspiracy theorists." One wonders what Tocqueville would have said if this phenomenon.

I'm convinced Alex Jones is a government employee. What he says is probably all true, but by shouting it through a megaphone on street corners it is instantly dismissed by sheeple who fancy themseves rational.

"Emmanuel Goldstein - you are everywhere!"

Yes, yes, yes.

I'll give our rulers one thing: they are geniuses!
