In August 2010 former Cuban president Fidel Castro wrote a controversial article for the Cuban Communist Party newspaper Granma in which he cited Daniel Estulin’s 2006 book The Secrets of the Bilderberg Club, which, as quoted by Castro, describes,
"sinister cliques and the Bilderberg lobbyists" manipulating the public "to install a world government that knows no borders and is not accountable to anyone but its own self"
REFLECTIONS OF FIDEL
The world government
(Taken from CubaDebate)
IN my recent Reflection of two days ago – on August 15 – I wrote, commenting on an article by Cuban journalist Randy Alonso – who hosts the "Roundtable" national television program – about a meeting that took place at Barcelona’s Dolce Hotel on what he calls ‘World Government’: "…Other honest writers like him were likewise following the news that somehow was leaked from that strange meeting. Somebody much more informed than them has been on the trail of these events for many years."
I was referring to the writer Daniel Estulin; 475 pages, 20 lines each, were awaiting me for a review of the fantastic story narrated by the abovementioned author, whether any of the participants in that meeting had dared to deny their presence there, or their participation in the events related in his book.
The most that can fit into this Reflection – which I will divide into two parts so that it is not too long – is the inclusion of a number of paragraphs that I selected to give an idea of the fabulous book, entitled: Los secretos del Club Bilderberg (The Secrets of the Bilderberg Club).
In the book, Estulin rips to shreds the big gurus:
Henry Kissinger, George Osborne, the executives of Goldman Sachs, Robert Zoellic, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Pascal Lamy, Jean Claude Trichet, Ana Patricia Botín, the CEOs of Coca Cola, France Telecom, Telefónica de España, Suez, Siemens, Shell, BP, and other similar politicians and financial tycoons.
Estulin starts at the roots:
"‘For an unprecedented two Sundays in a row, on the Ed Sullivan Show, over 75 million Americans watched the Beatles shake their heads and sway their bodies in a ritual which was soon to be replicated by hundreds of future rock groups.’"
"The man responsible for making the U.S public ‘like’ The Beatles was Walter Lippman himself. The Beatles, the most parodied and covered group in the history of music, were placed before the U.S. public so that they could be discovered."
"Enter Theo Adorno," is the title of one of the first epigraphs.
"The responsibility of devising a social theory of rock and roll fell to the German sociologist, musicologist and composer Theodor Adorno, ‘one of the leading philosophers at the Frankfurt School of Social Research…’ Adorno was sent to the United States in 1939 to direct the Princeton Radio Research Project, a joint effort between Tavistock and the Frankfurt School with the aim of controlling the masses, which was financed by the Rockefeller Foundation and founded by one of David Rockefeller’s trusted men, Hadley Cantril…"
"In fact, the Nazis had made intensive use of radio propaganda as an instrument for brainwashing and had transformed it into an integral part of the fascist state. This fact was observed and studied by the Tavistock networks and utilized extensively in its own experiments. The aim of this project, as explained in Adorno’s Introduction to the Sociology of Music, was ‘to program a mass ‘musical’ culture as a form of mass social control…’"
"’Radio stations were converted into machines that recycled the top 40 hits 24 hours per day.’"
"The Beatles arrived in the United States in February 1964, when the civil rights movement was at its peak. The country was wracked by a profound national trauma and was recovering from the brutal assassination of President John F. Kennedy […] on the streets of the capital, the civil rights movement led by Dr. Martin Luther King organized a demonstration that was attended by more than half a million people."
"Between 1964 and 1966, the so-called British invasion led to the emergence of a series of British rock singers and groups who became popular in the United States and besieged American culture. […] Toward the end of 1964, it was demonstrated that this ‘English invasion’ had been well planned and coordinated.
"‘These recently-created groups and their lifestyles […] became a new and very visible ‘type’ (Tavistock jargon), and it was not long before the new styles (clothing, hairstyles and use of language) swept millions of young Americans into the new cult. The youth of the United States suffered a radical revolution without even being aware of it […] and reacted in an incorrect manner against the manifestations of that crisis, namely by using every kind of drug – first marihuana and then lysergic acid (LCD), a powerful drug that altered people’s state of consciousness.’ […] at the MI6 headquarters in London and the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, it can be taken as fact that British intelligence and its affiliate, the U.S. Office of Strategic Services, were directly implicated in a secret investigation to control human behavior. Allen Dulles, director of the CIA at the time when the agency began Project MK-ULTRA, was head of the OSS in Berne, Switzerland during the initial stage of the Sandoz research."
"…in the United States and Europe, large outdoor rock concerts were used to halt the growing discontent of the population."
"The offensive launched by Bilderberg-Tavistock led a whole generation down the yellow brick road of LSD and marihuana…"
"ENTER ALDOUS HUXLEY"
"The high priest of the British opium war was Aldous Huxley, the grandson of Thomas H. Huxley, founder of the Rhodes Roundtable Group and also the well-known and eloquent biologist who helped Charles Darwin develop his theory of evolution."
"Toynbee, an Oxford graduate […] was the British delegate to the Peace Conference in Paris in 1919…"
"‘His tutor at Oxford was H.G. Wells, director of British intelligence during World War I and the spiritual father of the Aquarian Conspiracy. Aldous Huxley was one of the initiates of ‘Children of the Sun’, a Dionysian cult in which the sons and daughters of the British Roundtable elite participated.’ His most famous novel Brave New World is a blueprint (ordered by several world councils) for an authentic socialist world under one sole government or, as his Fabian mentor H.G. Wells said – and used as the title for one of his own popular novels – a blueprint for the New World Order…’"
"In Brave New World, Huxley focused on the scientific method for keeping all populations outside of the minority elite in an almost permanent state of submission and enamored of their chains. The principal tools used to achieve this state were certain vaccines that altered brain function and medicines which the state forced the population to consume. In Wells’ opinion, this was not a conspiracy but rather ‘a world brain working as mind police.’"
"In 1937, Huxley moved to California where he worked as a scriptwriter for MGM, Warner Brothers and Walt Disney, thanks to one of his contacts in Los Angeles: Jacob Zeitlin." […] ‘Bugsy Siegel, the West Coast boss of Lansky’s mafia outfit, had longstanding ties with Warner Brothers and MGM.’"
"In fact, show business – production, distribution, marketing and publicity – is under the control of a mafia that arises from the union of organized crime and high-level Wall Street conmen, who are ultimately controlled by the all-powerful Bilderberg. Show business is designed in the same way as any other "business line" of Bilderberg and his henchmen."
"In 1954, Huxley published an influential study of mind expansion via the use of mescaline titled The Doors of Perception (1954), the first manifestation of the culture of psychedelic drugs."
"In 1958 he collected a series of essays that he had written for Newsday, under the title Brave New World Revisited, in which he described a society in which ‘the primary objective of governors is to avoid at all costs that the governed create problems.’"
"He predicted that democracies would change their essence: the old and strange traditions – elections, parliaments, supreme courts – would remain, but the substratum below would be of non-violent totalitarianism… Meanwhile, the ruling oligarchy and its well-trained elite of soldiers, police, thought fabricators and mind manipulators would tranquilly lead the world as they pleased. In effect, this description of Huxley is perfectly adjusted to the current situation."
"In September 1960 Huxley was appointed guest professor of the Carnegie Centennial at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston. He was there for just one semester, after which he was sacked. ‘While he was in that city, Huxley created a circle at Harvard…’"
"The public subject of that circle or seminar was religion and its significance in the modern world… In an article published in The Campaigner magazine in April 1974, Michael Minnicino affirms: ‘During his time at Harvard, Huxley made contact with the president of Sandoz who, in his turn, was working on a CIA assignment to produce large quantities of LSD and Psilocybin (another synthetic hallucinogenic drug) for MK-Ultra, the official CIA experiment in chemical warfare,’ an experiment using humans as guinea pigs for their often lethal experiments which, on many occasions, involved the use of LSD […] Moreover, McGill University in Montreal, Canada, a higher education institute linked to Bilderberg, was also running experiments in the 1960s within the MK-Ultra program under the auspices of John Rees, a degenerate fascist from Tavistock, utilizing as subjects children from national orphanages, whom they tortured and then supplied with various doses of LSD. […] According to documents recently declassified by the CIA (thanks to the Freedom of Information Act), Allen Dulles (at that time director of the CIA) bought more than 100 million doses of LSD, ‘many of which ended up on the streets of the United States at the end of the 1960s,’ according to Minnicino in the previously quoted article."
"’…thousands of university students served as guinea pigs. They (the students) immediately began to synthesize their own ‘acid’.’"
"’…the vast majority of those who demonstrated against the war went to Students for a Democratic Society, prompted by the sense of outrage provoked by the situation in Vietnam. But once trapped in the atmosphere created by the psychological warfare experts at the Tavistock Institute, and inundated with the message that hedonism and defense of the country was a legitimate alternative to the ‘immoral’ war, their scale of values and their creative potential dissipated in a cloud of hashish smoke,’ writes the author in the previously quoted monograph."
"CREATING THE COUNTERCULTURE
"The open cultural ‘war,’ although undeclared, against U.S. youth began in earnest in 1967, when the Bilderberg members, in order to secure their objectives, began organizing open-air concerts. Through this secret weapon, they succeeded in attracting more than four million young people to the so-called ‘festivals.’ Without knowing it, the youth became victims of a perfectly planned experiment with drugs on a grand scale. Hallucinogenic drugs […] whose consumption was advocated by the Beatles […] were freely distributed at these concerts. Within a short space of time, more than 50 million of those who attended (then aged 10 to 25 years) returned home converted into messengers and promoters of the new drug culture or what would end up being known as the ‘New Age.’"
"The largest concert of all time, the open-air ‘Woodstock Music and Art Fair,’ was described by Time magazine as an ‘Aquarius Festival’ and as ‘the greatest show in history.’ Woodstock became part of the cultural lexicon for an entire generation."
"‘At Woodstock —wrote journalist Donald Phau— nearly half a million youth gathered to be drugged and brainwashed on a farm. The victims were isolated, immersed in filth, pumped with psychedelic drugs, and kept awake continously for three straight days, and all with the full complicity of the FBI and government officials. Security for the concert was provided by a hippie commune trained in the mass distribution of LSD. Once again, it would be the networks of British military intelligence which would be the initiators,’ with CIA help via its ex-director William Casey and its contacts with Sefton Delmer of MI6, whose contact Bruce Lockhardt was the MI6 controller of Lenin and Trotsky during the Bolshevik Revolution."
"Another decade would have to pass before the counterculture was integrated into the U.S. lexicon. But the seeds of what was a titanic and secret project to turn around U.S. cultural values were sown at that time. Sex, drugs and rock and roll, huge demonstrations across the nation, hippies, drug addicts who dropped out of school, the Nixon administration and the war in Vietnam were tearing apart the very fiber of U.S. society. The old and the new clashed head on without anyone being aware of the fact that that conflict was part of a secret social plan designed by a few of the most brilliant and diabolical people in the world…"
"the aquarian conspiracy"
"‘In the spring of 1980 — Lyndon LaRouche writes in DOPE INC.— a book titled The Aquarian Conspiracy (which sold more than a million copies and was translated into ten languages), became famous overnight as a manifesto of the counterculture.’ […] The Aquarian Conspiracy affirmed that the hour had come for the 15 million U.S. members of the counterculture to join together in order to provoke a radical change in the United States. In fact, this book was the first publication directed at society as a whole which backed the concept of teamwork, a concept that was held to be the most virtuous and was rapidly promoted by the management ‘gurus’."
"The writer Marilyn Ferguson affirms: ‘While a still untitled book outlined the newly emerging social alternatives, I thought about the particular form of this movement, about its atypical leadership, about the patient intensity of its followers, about their improbable successes…’"
"At a conference in 1961, Aldous Huxley described this police state as the ‘final revolution: a dictatorship without tears’ in which the people ‘love their chains.’"
"Zbigniew Brzezinski, national security advisor to President Carter, a founder member of the Trilateral Committee and a member of Bilderberg and the CFR, expresses identical ideas in his impassioned work Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, written under the auspices of Columbia University’s Research Institute on Communism and published by Viking Press in 1970.
"Without using violent repression, they designed a complex combination of actions to obtain a ‘peaceful citizen’ for the New World Order […] They also supported new concepts like ‘Emotional Intelligence’, which is the capacity to love oneself and adequately relate with others. […] A third way for converting this ‘industrial citizen’ into a ‘peaceful citizen’ is a grand marketing campaign to unleash an immense social recognition for collaborators with NGO’s, as I explained in my first book The True Story of the Bilderberg Group."
According to Harman:
"‘Once softened up [the United States], it was ripe for the introduction of drugs (especially cocaine, crack and heroin) and the beginning of an era that would rival Prohibition with the enormous sums of money accumulated.’"
"It is worth mentioning that sections of the 3,000 pages of ‘recommendations’ given to the recently elected Ronald Reagan by the CFR in January 1981, were based on material taken from the report ‘Changing Images of Man’ by Willis Harman.
"Under a full moon December 8, 1980, John Lennon was murdered by a man named Mark Chapman. It is unlikely that one day we will come to know if Mark Chapman was victim of an artificially induced model psychosis, a killer in the style of the ‘Manchurian Candidate,’ sent by the Tavistock, the CIA and MI6 to silence a Lennon who was revealing himself as constantly more difficult to control."
"THE PERFECT BRAINWASHING MACHINE: MTV"
"ENTER MTV, MUSIC TELEVISION"
"MTV, a marketing channel for popular rock music and music videos, invented and directed by Robert Pittman for an adolescent and youth audience, was founded on August 1, 1981. It is now part of the Viacom empire (known as the CBS Corporation). In order to reach youth without society realizing the deception, it became necessary to ‘have available a counter-institution preaching values counter to the dominant values in society.’ That is precisely what MTV does, ‘But in order for that effort to be successful—says L. Wolfe—the positive influence of parents and of school has to be neutralized or, at least, their influence weakened.’"
"’The model for this (MTV) were the theater shows presented by the pre-Nazi Richard Wagner, in which the audience was transported into a kind of ecstasy which was then consciously used by the Nazis to create their own symbolic celebrations, like the meetings in Nuremberg.’ The brainwashing specialists who created MTV were very aware of their effect. In a book about the channel, Rocking Around the Clock, E. Ann Kaplan affirms that MTV ‘hypnotizes more than any other [television channel] because it consists of a series of short texts that keep us in a constant state of emotion and expectation… We remain trapped in the constant hope that the next video will finally satisfy us. Seduced by the promise of immediate plenitude we continue infinitely consuming those short texts.’"
"During the four minutes that one music visit approximately lasts (the Tavistock scientists determined that four minutes was the maximum length for an involuntary subject to be susceptible to receiving the messages contained in the programs) ‘an artificial reality in the form of ‘counterpoints’ is inserted into the consciousness, replacing the cognitive reality…"
"If people thought about this process—writes Walter Lippman—it could all be over,’ but, he concludes, ‘the mass of illiterate, mentally weak, profoundly neurotic, undernourished and frustrated individuals is so considerable that there is reason to believe much more than we generally believe. And so [the process] is placed within the reach of people who are mentally children or barbarians and whose lives are a total mess, they select simple contents with a great popular attraction…’ In Crystallizing Public Opinion, Edward Bernays states that ’the average citizen is the most effective censor in the world. His or her own mind is the greatest barrier separating him or her from the facts…’"
"Viewers suffering from brainwashing have only the illusion that they retain the capacity to choose, just like drug addicts believe that they are in control of their addiction instead of it controlling them. ‘MTV—says Ann Kaplan—is designed thanks to a constantly increasing knowledge of the methods of psychological manipulation.’ …The average of television consumption had climbed constantly since its appearance, so that, by the mid-1970s, it was the daily activity to which most time was devoted after sleep and work, with almost six hours’ viewing per day. Since then, with the appearance of the video machine, video consoles, it has increased far more. School age children were spending almost as much time watching television as sleeping."
"’In Freudian brainwashing terminology —states Emery—viewers of a music video find themselves in an induced state very similar to sleeping. They are helped, or induced to enter that state, by the repetitive appearance of brilliant colors and images that overwhelm their vision, while the pulsating and vibrant rhythm of rock has a similar effect on their ears.’ Not only are we in an era of television, but also in an era conditioned by television—and it is an era of disquiet, of discontent, of frustration, directed nowhere or all over the place at once—as is logical in an environment in which [television] is omnipresent."
"Bilderberg’s sinister clique and capos, the clandestine spheres of influence and conscious and intelligent manipulation of organized habits are the most recent expression of a more profound campaign of manipulation in order to institute a world government without limits, which does not respond to anybody other than to itself."
"…the principal successes sold at will to a demoralized population to the benefit of the fundamentalist fanaticism of a group of men who do not have to respond to anybody and who are seeking absolute power at the price of the dignity of modern humans, denigrated, humiliated and scorned by the combined powers of the manipulation apparatus and brainwashing of Bilderberg-CFR-Tavistock with their team of scientists, psychologists, sociologists and scientists of the new science (New Age, mysticism, et cetera), anthropologists and fascists determined to recreate a new Roman Empire.
"The first to begin were Edward Bernays and Walter Lippmann. Then Gallup and Yankelovich. Later, Rees and Adorno, Aldous Huxley and H. G. Wells, Emery and Trist, followed by the drugs culture and the Aquarian Conspiracy, a supposed ‘humanist’ ideal in favor of the old culture, sprinkled with a pinch of human freedom instead of what it really is: an intelligent way of degrading people until they are converted into mere farm animals, denying them the originality of the human consciousness, which is instantly understood everywhere without the need for translation."
"The New Age will be a new Dark Age. It will signify the premature death of a little more than half of the population and the deliberate oblivion of humanity’s greatest achievements. This is the totalitarian ideology proposed by the New World Order, determined to rule the world even if it is over our corpses. […] Why is it worthwhile defending our civilization? Why is a regime based on freedom better than the dictatorships that currently oppress a large part of humanity? For some, the answers to these questions are evident, for many, they are not."
"CHAPTER 3" HOW AND WHY BILDERBERG ORGANIZED THE WAR IN KOSOVO"
"This time it was the turn of the Balkans. The ‘master plan’ was conceived during the 1996 meeting of the Bilderberg Club in King City, a small luxury enclave 20 kilometers from the Canadian city of Toronto. […] The wars of the Bilderberg Club members in Kosovo and the Balkans had a concrete motive: drugs, oil, mineral wealth and the advance of the ‘global government’ cause."
"The United States and Germany began to support the secessionist forces in Yugoslavia after the collapse of communism in the former Soviet Union, when the Yugoslav Federation rejected being incorporated into the western orbit. John Pilger, a prizewinning Australian journalist, wrote in the New Statesman:
‘Milosevic was a brute; he was also a banker once considered an ally of the West prepared to put into practice ‘economic reforms’ in line with the demands of the IMF, the World Bank and the European Union; to his misfortune, he refused to cede sovereignty. The empire expected no less.’ According to an article by Neil Clark, a journalist specializing in Middle East and Balkan affairs, ‘At that moment, more than 700,000 Yugoslavian companies remained under social ownership, and the majority were still controlled by joint committees of directors and workers, with only 5% of capital in private hands.’"
"Sara Flounders, an activist and journalist close to the Workers World Party, an international peace movement, wrote in an article: ‘…the credit conditions of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank require the disintegration of all public industries. This is the case of oil and natural gas in the Caucasus and the Caspian Sea, as well as the diamond mines of Siberia. Whoever possesses or has a dominant interest [...] will be the one who wins the armed struggle that is beginning in Kosovo. NATO domination on the terrain will place U.S. companies in the best position facing those resources.’"
"Initially, the Bilderberg members attempted to ‘inflame’ the Serbs by pursuing the war criminals that they were sheltering, taking them to trial before a new International Court. The Serbs, proud and experienced, avoided this provocation by persuading suspects at the lowest level of the echelon to hand themselves over voluntarily. However, that was not enough. In order to infuriate the Serbs, The Hague International Court, controlled by the United States, had recourse to illegal kidnappings in order to incite the war."
"This would also explain why Richard Holbrooke, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from 1999-2001, a Bilderberg and CFR member and six-time candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize, inserted a clause on Kosovo in the final agreement. What has Kosovo got to do with Bosnia? Nothing. But Holbrooke’s idea was to convert Bosnia into a rehearsal for the Bilderberg Club’s future expansion in the Balkans."
"IN SEARCH OF AN EXCUSE: WILLIAM WALKER ENTERS THE STAGE"
"…as John Laughland explains in his article ‘The technique of a coup d’état,’ it was William Walker, a member of the CFR and ‘former ambassador in El Salvador, whose government, supported by the United States, established the death squads.’ In 1985, Walker was an aide to the assistant secretary of state for Central America and a key operator in Reagan’s White House attempts to overthrow the Nicaraguan government. Lieutenant-Colonel Oliver North, appointed to the National Security Council in early 1981 and fired on November 25, 1986, was the Reagan administration official with the greatest implication in secret aid to the Contras thanks to the benefits arising from arms sales to Iran."
"According to the legal file, Walker was responsible for establishing a false humanitarian operation on an airbase in Ilopango, El Salvador, which was secretly used to supply the Contra mercenaries who were attacking Nicaragua with arms, cocaine, munitions and provisions."
"Walker, who had handed over arms to the Contras in Nicaragua and had now transformed himself into a peace observer, declared with great fanfare to the world press that the Serbian police were guilty of ‘the most horrific’ slaughter that he had ever seen. The Serbs, who, up until then, had skillfully avoided the provocations of NATO and the Bilderberg Club, had fallen. The alleged ‘massacre’ prompted a pretext for the intervention. On January 30, the NATO Council authorized the bombardments. And Bilderberg ordered Javier Solana, its secretary general, to ‘use armed force in order to oblige the Serbian delegates and those of Albanian ethnicity at the ‘peace’ negotiations in France to discuss a framework for the ‘autonomy’ of Kosovo.’"
"An August 4 article in The Washington Post quoted a ‘senior U.S. Department of Defense official who indicated that only one thing could provoke a change of policy: ‘I think that if certain levels of intolerable atrocity were to be reached, that would probably be a detonator.’"
"As a useful historical reference, one should recall that the Serbs were victims of the worst act of ethnic cleansing, such as the 200,000 or more Serbs who were eliminated in the Krajina region in Croatia during ‘Operation Storm’ supported by the United States in 1995, or the 100,000 or more Serbs who were eliminated in Kosovo by the ELK after the NATO bombardments. Needless to say, the International Court, the justice mechanism of the New World Order, has done nothing to bring the authors of that atrocity to justice."
"They had to have known about it, because how else would the Crown be induced to maintain an army in that region where there was nothing of value except for the lucrative opium trade? It was very expensive to maintain armed men in such a distant country. Her Majesty must have asked why those military units were there,’ ponders Dr. John Coleman in Conspirators’ Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300."
Under the epigraphy:
"HISTORY OF THE IMPLICATION OF THE UNITED STATES IN DRUG TRAFFICKING"
"As opposed to what history books have told us over the years, pernicious drug trafficking is not the exclusive territory of the criminal classes, at least if by criminal classes we understand some of the most important families in the history of the United States, known as the East Coast Liberals, whose members are directing that country from the oligarchy via a parallel system of government known as the Bilderberg Club."
"KOSOVO AND HEROIN"
"In an article published on March 24, 1999 in The Times of London, two journalists, Roger Boyes and Eske Wright, affirm, ‘Albania—which is playing a fundamental role in decanting money to the Kosovars—is at the epicenter of European drug trafficking…’"
"Albania has turned into the European crime capital. The most powerful groups in the country are organized criminals who use Albania to cultivate, process and store a large percentage of illegal drugs destined for Western Europe…"
I shall continue tomorrow.

Translated by Granma International
The consolidation of NATO’s power in southern Europe and the Mediterranean also constitutes a step toward the expansion of Bilderberg’s geopolitical sphere of influence beyond the Balkans to the area of the Caspian Sea, Central Asia and Western Asia."
Commissioner Almunia; Borrell, president; and Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission and another Bilderberg habitué, organized a grand campaign in favor of the approval of fundamental rights, allegedly sacred, in the European Constitution [...] What neither Borrell, nor Almunia, nor Barroso have said to the good European citizens is that each and every one of their rights, according to Article 51, can be suspended if ‘the interests of the Union’ require it."
