I thought that it would be more interesting...
on 1 April 2012
I bought this book after reading a lot of exciting reviews! Maybe I forgot to read the negative ones though..... Well, let's say that I was expecting more information! I know very little about the New World Order or these secret groups but enough to know that what the author talks about is true, you only have to look around you and match it with the information he gives. The problem with this book is it is partly about other groups, like the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission, more than actually about the Bilderberg Group. Then there are dozens of photos of members of the Bilderberg Group. If they are that secretive why are there so many photos circulating? And there are lists of all the participants as well so they don't seem to keep their secrets very well! The author sees himself as a bit of a James Bond type and I found that rather irritating. That said there is interesting information, for example about the Bolsheviks so the book is worth reading although I wish I had come across a better written one!
Interesting that the author talks about Pedro M. Lopes Santana as being a former Portuguese Prime Minister but well, the guys name is Pedro Santana Lopes (whether the M. is there or not I don't know). Just a detail but he should have got it right! A pity he doesn't talk about the death of another prime minister, Francisco Sá Carneiro who was killed (possibly murdered) in a plane crash together with his minister of defense. I am sure these secret groups were behind their deaths as it seems that the Defense Minister was going to tell NATO all about the Americans shipping guns to the Middle East through Lisbon. Funny that he talks about other, less important facts about Portugal....
The story about Mitterrand I confess I didn't understand but then it is maybe my fault as I know nothing about him.
Anyway, the bottom line is that there is a lot wrong with the world we live in and the better we are informed the safer we will be (at least so I hope....). So... do read about this subject, maybe other books though! I suppose this one was so well marketed that it is made out to be something it is not but that s my personal opinion, other people might love it!
