If you have any doubts about the organised nature of the oligarchy that rules the Western world then read this Observer article about the Davos meetings in Switzerland this last week.
The wealthy, privately educated elite that governs us were all gathered together to get their story straight and placate the bankers who are now portraying themselves as ‘victims’ of unreasonable mob venom!!!
Put this together with the G8, G20 and Bilderberg and you have a totally undemocratic and unaccountable world-wide oligarchy that ensures that the world is governed in the interests of the already rich and powerful.
The question is whether you think their interests are your interests? If you think your interests coincide with the interests of this elite, then you are likely to think that all this high-level schmoozing is perfectly reasonable and simply a necessary expression of an efficient form of Realpolitik. If however, you think that governing the world in the interests of a tiny wealthy elite at the expense of the vast majority is morally abhorrent and politically unsustainable (see Tunisia & Egypt), then you might find these self-serving, vain-glorious gatherings of the greedy and the pompous as stomach churning and sinister as I do.
