A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. Cicero, 42 B.C.The Bilderberg Group, founded in 1954 by the likes of ex-Nazi Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, David Rockerfeller, Dean Rusk, who was both a top official of the Council on Foreign Relations and head of the Rockerfeller foundation, provides the very rich and their political adjuncts the chance to get together in private to discuss how to rule the World in the interests of the very rich and their political adjuncts.
Among members of the Bilderberg's steering committee is the youthful, gay, billionaire, Peter Thiel, who just happens to be Ron Paul's largest presidential election campaign contributor.
A connection between Ron Paul and Bilderberg should be no surprise. Peter Thiel is a libertarian and like most very rich people hates the income tax, the corporation tax, welfare, healthcare and publicly funded education. Ron Paul, as his supporters ought to know, is if not very rich, at least a multimillionaire and a libertarian who would like to scrap the income tax, the corporation tax, welfare, healthcare and publicly funded education.
So what's the fuss about Ron Paul being backed by Bilderberg-steering-committee member Thiel?
Probably, although I have not seen this articulated clearly, the reaction is due to the apparent inconsistency between Ron Paul's avowed opposition to the American war for global empire and the Bilderberger's ideological closeness with the imperialistic Council on Foreign Relations.
However, the difference is not fundamental. The American drive for global empire aims at the creation of a world safe for very rich people, which means global governance owned by very rich people. Bilderbergers share this objective with the most insanely warlike NeoCons. As a libertarian, Ron Paul shares this objective.
Although Paul may sincerely disagree with the present US approach to the destruction of the democratic nation state, including the United States, as the fundamental unit of political power, he is not opposed to the overriding goal, which is the creation of a world without borders, where the nations states, their identities, their distinctive cultures and their religious traditions are to exposed to the impact of unrestricted human migration, and flows of capital, goods and services.
The libertarians, like the Bilderbergers, the CFR and the Trilateral Commission are united in a campaign for universal genocide and the mongrelization of humanity. National cultures and religious traditions are to be trashed in the process and replaced by a universal culture consisting in little more than a byproduct of the commercial system.
The emergence of this World, the New World Order, announced by George H.W. Bush in 1991, will inevitably lead to the division of humanity into two species, the Eloi and the Morlocks of HG Wells dystopian novel the Time Machine, i.e., an elite class, the Eloi, living completely apart from the slave class, the Morlocks.
It will be a simple matter to genetically engineer both classes to (a) prevent inter-class breeding and (b) to give each of the resultant species the appropriate characteristics: beauty, longevity, etc. for the Eloi, servility, and brevity of existence for the Morlocks, who will have only what physical or mental powers they require to fulfill their allotted tasks.
As this genocidal scheme unfolds, most of the existing wonderful human physical and cultural diversity will be trashed. Whether, as Wells predicted, the Eloi will become decadent and feeble minded remains to be seen. More likely, they will break into competing tribes, engaged in a furious technological competition to breed the most useful slaves, including intellectual slaves, and to advance their own path to human perfection.
Wells predicted this development in the year 802,701 AD, in which estimate he seems to have been about eight hundred thousand years out.
So Paulists beware: you may get what you wish for.
