Lorsqu’au milieu des années 2000, on parlait des réunions secrètes de ce groupe occulte extrêmement dangereux, on nous prenait au mieux pour des complotistes, au pire pour des illuminés. Aujourd’hui, ce sont les journaux officiels qui en parlent ouvertement, comme si de rien n’était, comme pour minimiser la portée de ces réunions.

Bien sûr, toute personne saine d’esprit peut comprendre qu’une réunion secrète, se tenant donc à huis clos et interdisant la présence des journalistes, est tout simplement inacceptable. D’autant que depuis les années 50, lorsque ces réunions ont commencé, toutes leurs décisions entraînaient la planète inéluctablement vers la catastrophe. Faudrait vraiment être d’une totale stupidité pour croire que ces gens travaillent pour le bien de l’humanité.


Le groupe de réflexion, qui accueille des personnalités de pouvoir et alimente donc bien des théories de la conspiration, se réunit en Suisse à partir de jeudi.

La réunion annuelle du groupe Bilderberg, fondé en 1954 et destinée à renforcer les relations entre les États-Unis et l’Europe, aura lieu du jeudi 30 mai au dimanche 2 juin à Montreux, en Suisse. Y participeront 130 personnes venus de 23 pays : patrons, experts, consultants, hommes politiques…

Les discussions du groupe restent « off the record » (personne ne peut attribuer un propos à une personne nommée), ce qui alimente bien des théories de la conspiration. Mais le groupe publie la liste des thèmes soumis à la réflexion. Cette année seront mis à l’honneur le Brexit, l’éthique de l’intelligence artificielle, l’importance de l’espace, le changement climatique et le développement durable. Mais la liste des invités a également été publiée…

Sont attendus notamment Jared Kushner, principal conseiller de Donald Trump, le ministre français de l’Économie Bruno Le Maire, le PDG de Crédit-Suisse Tidjane Thiam, le gouverneur de la Banque d’Angleterre Mark Carney et l’ex-PDG de Google Éric Schmidt, le PDG de Total Patrick Pouyanné, le secrétaire général de l’OTAN Jens Stoltenberg, le PDG de Microsoft Satya Nadella, l’ancien secrétaire d’Etat américain Henry Kissinger …
