One need not resort to fantasies about Illuminati and lizards from outer space. There is a reality that is publicly known. One cannot call it a conspiracy, but note the highlighted items in this initial description from the WikiPedia page. Even in all innocence, these ends and frequent occurrences constitute a means by which those who run things do so without the need of a conspiracy. They share a particular weltanschauung and that is all that is required. They are in effect good ol' boys who went to school together and whose parents went to the same schools and run the same group of companies or share board memberships on major corporations. They are not necessarily anything that we should fear as their interest is in the continued stability of the earth and societies. They have a proprietary interest. Rather fear instead those on the right politically who work to dismantle social institutions that support those who cannot support themselves in our society. The victims of misfortune or of our ever lowering quality of public schools.

Hotel de Bilderberg (2007), name-giving location of the first conference in 1954
Formation 29 May 1954 (57 years ago)
Membership ~150 invitees, smaller core group
Chairmen of the Steering Committee Étienne Davignon
The Bilderberg Group, Bilderberg conference, or Bilderberg Club is an annual, unofficial, invitation-only conference of approximately 120 to 140 guests from North America and Western Europe, most of whom are people of influence. About one-third are from government and politics, and two-thirds from finance, industry, labour, education and communications. Meetings are closed to the public and often feature future political leaders shortly before they become household names.
Because of its exclusivity and privacy, the Bilderberg group is frequently accused by conspiracy theorists of being an all-powerful secret society fixing the fate of the world behind closed doors for nefarious ends. Critics of Bilderberg conspiracy theories counter that it is nothing more than a policy discussion forum and social club, which only serves as a means to brainstorm, reach consensus, and create social cohesion within the power elite of North American and Western European nations
, to better promote Atlantic free-market capitalism and its interests around the globe.
Then there are other groups that are very definitely in existence. Whether they constitute the secret governing world order that is reputed is not necessarily true. Here is a schematic per David Icke that lists the major ones.

It is commonly said that the Bilderbergers own the corporations and Yale 'Bones' members run them.
To the Club of Rome we owe the original work done on attempting to create a computer program to predict world population growth and quality of life into the future. This was called Limits to Growth. I have a copy of their original publication of the program and the calculated results. Basically they concluded that structural aspects of society would cause a major overshoot of population beyond the limits sustainable by the earths eco systems and that a major decline of population would result.
We as a group are something of an offset to all the above in that we can see under the skirts of reality and know what is real and what is not. Enough like minded and knowledgeable individuals can provide the nucleus to assure the optimum passage into the future of our various societies. So is my opinion in any case. This is a matter of core knowledge however, not in any way a call or advocacy of political or social action. Grow your own Quality of Consciousness and reduce your own entropy.
