The role of the Bilderberg meetings in the flow of events since its founding in 1954 is a matter of debate among scholars and journalists. How much influence do they have is certainly an interesting question. The creme la creme of the mainstream press goes in but they don report on it. I seriously wonder why werent even mentioned on the Daily Show now that they are much more scrutinised. What do they do? Should we care? Why is that for a long time only hardcore conspiracy theorists mentioned them? Why are the Russians never invited? Discuss. Maybe the third time will be the charm.
