George Orwell wrote some of his most renowned essays for the British left-wing publication Tribune between 1940 and 1947, including Books vs Cigarettes, You And The Atom Bomb and the regular As I Please column. These works were compiled by Paul Anderson in the book Orwell in Tribune.
And you can listen to a conversation between Paul and the chaps at Little Atoms … in it’s entirety … here. Well worth it.
It was first broadcast in 2006 and just republished this week. This chap has long been a fan of Mr. Orwell – having read ALL of his books before he hit his twenties. That said, not a scholar … soooo … I am scheduling this post to come out in about a week’s time …. in the hope that the other chap – who is far better versed than this chap in topics of this ilk can add some meaningful fodder for our delecation.
This particular chap had never heard of the Bilderberg Meetings …. and has to say right out of the box … it isn’t the meetings that are secret … they have a web site that tells you all about them. Well – at least when they were held, who was there and who runs them. It’s just what was discussed that seems to be kept under wraps.
And that is all well and good … I mean … even if we wanted to know everything about everything that goes on in the world – well – we just couldn’t – could we?
For example … the 65th and latest meeting occurred just this past June.
