About one-third of Bilderberg attendees are from government and politics from approximately 18 nations, and two-thirds from finance, industry, labour, education and communications.
In 2001, Denis Healey, a 30-year group founder and steering committee member, said:
To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair. Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn’t go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people and rendering millions homeless. So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing.
