4 June 2022 - 3:00 pm
The World Economic Forum (WEF) just finished their annual meetup at Davos in Switzerland. We have discussed the WEF before, but not in very much detail. In a future article we will look at it a bit more closely, but for now we’ll just talk a bit about their recent meetup. As you will see, their website is a big, glitzy affair which is as grandiose as their stated “Global Agenda”. They have videos of many of their Davos 2022 panels and presentations, and they now clearly see themselves as literally untouchable, unaccountable and therefore able to brazenly state their goals, have these meetings and decide our futures, while the likes of the BBC manage their public image for the plebs.
For example, The Great Reset, one of the WEFs “initiatives” that has used the cover of the fake COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent ruinous Government policies that have pushed national economies all over the world off the edge of a cliff, to declare the world needs their special insight to recover. As early as June 2020 the WEF and its head honcho, Klaus Schwab was declaring “Now is the time for a great reset”.
Schwab and the WEF’s own sub-contracted team even wrote the book “COVID-19: The Great Reset”. Apart from it’s doom-mongering, constantly failing logic, contradictions, conflations and spurious use of statistics, some truly awful quotes from the book include…
…the possibilities for change and the resulting new order are now unlimited and only bound by our imaginationPage 19 – COVID-19: The Great Reset
The containment of the coronavirus pandemic will necessitate a global surveillance network.Page 33
The COVID-19 pandemic has made government important again. Not just powerful again (look at those once-mighty companies begging for help), but also vital again.Page 89 – quoting John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge
…the role of the state has shrunk considerably. This is a situation that is set to change because it is hard to imagine how an exogenous shock of such magnitude as the one inflicted by COVID-19 could be addressed with purely market-based solutions.Page 91
For the first time since Margaret Thatcher captured the zeitgeist of an era when declaring that “there is no such thing as society”, governments have the upper hand. Everything that comes in the post-pandemic era will lead us to rethink governments’ role. Rather than simply fixing market failures when they arise, they should, as suggested by the economist Mariana Mazzucato: “move towards actively shaping and creating markets that deliver sustainable and inclusive growth”.Page 92
Some leaders and decision-makers who were already at the forefront of the fight against climate change may want to take advantage of the shock inflicted by the pandemic to implement long-lasting and wider environmental changes. They will, in effect, make “good use” of the pandemic by not letting the crisis go to waste. The exhortation of different leaders ranging from HRH the Prince of Wales to Andrew Cuomo to “build it back better” goes in that direction.Page 145 – emphasis added
We will see how contact tracing has an unequalled capacity and a quasi-essential place in the armoury needed to combat Covid-19, while at the same time being positioned to become an enabler of mass surveillance.Page 153
An important lesson can be learned from the countries that were more effective in dealing with the pandemic (in particular Asian nations): technology in general and digital in particular help.Page 160
China, Hong Kong SAR and South Korea implemented coercive and intrusive measures of digital tracing. They took the decision to track individuals without their consent, through their mobile and credit card data, and even employed video surveillance.
Most people, fearful of the danger posed by COVID-19, will ask: Isn’t it foolish not to leverage the power of technology to come to our rescue when we are victims of an outbreak and facing a life-or-death kind of situation? They will then be willing to give up a lot of privacy and will agree that in such circumstances public power can rightfully override individual rights.Page 166
Schwab via his ghost-writers mentioned in the acknowledgements section, brow-beats the reader with absurd historical comparisons such as World War 2, and talks about how “the COVID-19 crisis cannot go to waste and that now is the time to enact sustainable environmental policies”. He is not remotely concerned about “coercive and intrusive” surveillance, and seems very happy that COVID-19, or at least the insane and predetermined reactions and policies enacted off the back of the claim that a pandemic existed, has provided this timely opportunity to destroy everything and rebuild it the way they want things.
But never mind all that. Just because the WEF, the leader of the WEF and all the connected people, organisations and companies talked about it happening, practiced what they’d do if/when it happened just before it happened, published a book about how their plans are progressing after it happened, and were the single major group of beneficiaries after it happened, never mind all that, the BBC says the idea has been “hijacked by conspiracy theorists”.
The BBC article simultaneously acknowledges that the WEF faces some legitimate criticisms, but this is quickly summarised as “mmm well maybe a group of powerful and wealthy being able to lobby for vast changes raises some questions”, some momentary chin-stroking and then continues with the main thrust of the article, the defining as “baseless statements”, “conspiracy theories” and the “wild and unsubstantiated claims”, of anything outside that minor issue above.
They mention the “grain of fact” which is…
In June 2020, the Prince of Wales and the head of the annual Davos summit launched an initiative calling for the pandemic to be seen as a chance for what they called a Great Reset of the global economy.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-trending-57532368
…and this of course is supposed to assure you dear reader that this is just a very recent initiative, thought up after the “pandemic” had started months earlier, and is just their (the WEF and Prince Charles) way of helping the world recover and be a better place.
Interestingly and revealingly, if you search for the phrase “Great Reset” on the BBC website, you’ll (as of today, 4th June 2022) also see a link to a broadcast titled “The Great Reset” from 23rd October 2011.
That talks about a book written back in July 2011 by Richard Florida called “The Great Reset: Will Change the Way We Live and Work”. According to Amazon, the back cover contains the following…
In The Great Reset, bestselling author and economic development expert Richard Florida provides an engaging and sweeping examination of these previous economic epochs, or resets, while looking toward the future to identify the patterns that will drive the next Great Reset and transform virtually every aspect of our lives.https://www.amazon.co.uk/Great-Reset-Post-Crash-Economy-Change/dp/0062009052/
That final phrase about how the Great Reset will “transform virtually every aspect of our lives” sounds kind of familiar. It sounds a bit like this…
Of the many diverse and fascinating challenges we face today, the most intense and important is how to understand and shape the new technology revolution, which entails nothing less than a transformation of humankind. We are at the beginning of a revolution that is fundamentally changing the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope and complexity, what I consider to be the fourth industrial revolution is unlike anything humankind has experienced before.
That is the first paragraph in the introduction section of WEF CEO Klaus Schwab’s book The Fourth Industrial Revolution, published in 2016.
So we have Richard Florida writing “The Great Reset” in 2011, similar ideas in a book called “The Fourth Industrial Revolution” by Klaus Schwab in 2016, who then published a book called “COVID-19: The Great Reset” with a continuation of the same ideas. Is there a connection between these two men, apart from their uncannily similar ideas? Well yes there is.
It turns out that Richard Florida is listed in the WEF website, in their Agenda Authors section. Oh what a surprise. It’s not that Schwab and the WEF are plagiarists or unoriginal (well, yes they are but that’s not the main point right here) but that The Great Reset is not just some idea that popped into Schwab’s and Charles’ heads in June 2020, it is a plan they have had, inspired at least in part by a book written 9 years earlier by one of their own agenda authors. I guess the BBC must have missed that.
Looking at list of participants (PDF) that jetted into the transformed town of Davos for their annual WEF shindig you can see all the usual suspects there, all the Governments, companies and NGOs represented, all the Foundations and “non-profits” that have overlapping interests and ideologies. Just to name a few from the 58 page document linked to above…
- Albert Bourla – Pfizer CEO
- Stéphane Bancel – Moderna CEO
- Bill Gates
- Brad Garlinghouse – Ripple CEO
- Satya Nadella – Microsoft CEO
- David Nabarro – Special Envoy on Covid-19 for the World Health Organization
- Vas Narasimhan – Novartis CEO
- Henry A. Kissinger
- Lawrence Elliott – Economics Editor for The Guardian
- Jeremy Farrar – Director of the Wellcome Trust
- Avie Glazer – Chairman of Manchester United Football Club
- Sri Krishnan Guru-Murthy – Channel 4 News Presenter
- Faisal Islam – Economics Editor for BBC
- Heidi Larson – Professor of Anthropology, Risk and Decision Science, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
..and hundreds more. Some of the companies and media represented were:
- State Street Corporation
- Goldman Sachs
- State Bank of India
- Qatar National Bank
- Sony Group Corporation
- Cloudflare Inc.
- AstraZeneca AB
- Intel Corporation
- The Wall Street Journal
- Cisco Systems, Inc.
- Merck KGaA
- Thomson Reuters
- Illumina Inc.
- McKinsey & Company
…and hundreds more. You get the idea. After the event had finished, the WEF published their “6 themes at Davos 2022 that will define what happens next” which apparently, and you’ll be ever so surprised to read, are:
Theme #1: Ukraine shines a light on importance of global cooperation
…which is all about throwing billions at Zelenskyy to “win the war” and to “rebuild”, along with “global cooperation”. In this section Gregory Meeks, US Congressman and Chair of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, is quoted as saying “In our interdependent world, none of us are safe until all of us are safe”. Christine Lagarde, President of European Central Bank is quoted as saying “This is a new dawn for Europe”. Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission is quoted as saying “Global cooperation is the antidote to Russia’s blackmail”. If it wasn’t obvious before, this “conflict” between Russia and Ukraine is certainly fuelling the cause for “global cooperation”, because there’s nothing like having a major problem, or at least the appearance of one to hustle your preferred outcomes in that would otherwise have been an impossible sale.
Theme #2: Three interconnected crises – climate, food, energy
Have a guess which one of those three dominated the conversation? “Climate action now, is critical” said Xie Zhenhua, China’s Special Envoy for Climate Change. “Over 3 million Kenyans and 20 million Africans are facing extreme hunger due to the effects of climate change” claimed Elizabeth Wathuti, Founder of the Green Generation Initiative where food got a mention but the cause of course was Climate Change, allegedly caused by that life-giving trace gas carbon dioxide that plants that could feed millions requires for it’s very existence. But never mind that, the WEF’s First Movers Coalition which got a major expansion this year is going to fix it all. Global leaders form this panel that was launched by the World Economic Forum and the US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry at COP26 are overseeing the plan to get the worlds largest companies on board, and commercialize the green technologies these companies commit to purchasing.
Nothing about this is intended to address food and energy problems, only exacerbate them. Seeing this group…
…with the caption “These global leaders met to announce the expansion of the First Movers Coalition to the world” that includes John Kerry of the U.S. Government and United Nations, Bill Gates and these other loons that claim reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will somehow improve the food and energy crisis they have deliberately created with two years of catastrophic COVID policies and unimaginable waste is a sure sign that you should never believe the ads.
If it wasn’t insane enough, they are now going to be ploughing billions of other people’s money (taxes) into “carbon dioxide removal-technologies”.
Theme #3: Don’t use the ‘R’ word (but it might be coming anyway)
The ‘R’ word in this case is “Recession”. Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) who in this meeting said “the horizon has darkened”, just over a year ago was telling Governments to “Spend as much as you can and then spend a little bit more”. If that sounds like complete madness, that the head of the IMF was telling Governments all over the world to spend so extravagantly and now tells everyone things are bleak, it’s because it is. But these people are not stupid, they just have wallowed in their own hype for so long with likeminded megalomaniacs that this is really all part of the plan. Georgieva also infamously spoke of a “new Bretton Woods moment” back in 2020. They have created all of this to provide the appropriate climate (if you’ll excuse the pun) and fake justifications for the plans they had all along.
Theme #4: Preparing for the next pandemic requires ending health disparities
Oh yes. Pandemic preparedness, another unsurprising “theme”. Winnie Byanyima, Undersecretary-General of the UN and Executive Director of the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) is quoted as saying “Racism is when black people, brown people, people of colour take their last breath because of policy violence, when they are denied life-saving, pandemic-ending medicines”. This is all about making people in countries where their Governments tried to force injections on them against their will, threatening their jobs, travel, socialising and anything else they could think of to coerce a traumatised by baseless fear-mongering public, into feeling guilty about how Africa is the most under-vaccinated continent.
The only problem with that is that she missed out the fact that Africa is also the most unaffected continent by whatever people believe is COVID-19. This scientific mystery is still baffling the greatest minds of our generation apparently. Obviously again, these WEF ideologues will know this, and the desperate need to address this “health disparity” that revolves only around expensive vaccines and pharmaceutical products, is all about trying to remove this unintended control group that makes a mockery of their absurd claims and proposed “solutions”.
Theme #5: Gender, inequality and Jobs of Tomorrow
Ah yes, divide and conquer, coupled with hiding behind the vulnerable, the age old tactics of the predator class. Of course there are issues faced by both genders, and there is massive inequality, but all those issues have been created by the same kinds of people, organisations and Governments that are demanding we all submit to their techno-utopian plans to fix them. And what about “jobs of tomorrow”? They might have been the same jobs as yesterday if these vainglorious egomaniacs hadn’t just spent the last two years destroying thousands of small businesses and making millions of people dependent on Government handouts.
Theme #6: ‘Our future is digital’
Of course it is. That’s how these people get total control of everything. Achim Steiner, the Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme is quoted as saying “Our future is digital. If you’re not part of it, you’re out of it”, which is nice. They also unironically bang on about inclusivity, but only if you want a digital future. The “digital inclusion” they keep on about is strictly for good, compliant citizens who want a digital id, linked to their health and vaccination records, and their finances, that allows them equitable access to the global economy, and to be locked out of it for non-compliance. If you don’t want all that, you know the future? You’re out of it. Sooo inclusive. I wish I’d just made all that up, that digital future stuff, but unfortunately it is all too real. See the Digital Id section of this article for plenty of evidence of this.
It would be nice to think we could just ignore the WEF and their minions, coat-tail riders and wannabes, and in some ways at an individual level we can. Ignoring garbage legislation like the nonsense pushed for the last two years can be liberating for those strong enough to take a stand, and/or have the circumstances that permit it. But looking at the bigger-picture stuff, there are things to be concerned about if these arrogant psychopaths get their way, and the reason for this is there is more than just the WEF at play here. That is not the only vehicle they have, not the only means of influence. There are dozens and dozens of these kinds of globalist organisations, their tendrils infiltrating Governments, companies and especially the “non-profit” sector.
Just one other of these is the Bilderberg Group. This one has been around longer than the WEF, but has overlapping interests and participants, like they all do.
The 68th Bilderberg Meeting took place on the 2nd to the 5th June 2022 in Washington, D.C., USA. Officially they’ve not had a Meeting since 2019 because, you know, tHeRe wAs A dEaDlY ViRuS and clearly it would not be very good for public relations if they had a closed-door, no notes or minutes meeting while you weren’t allowed to visit your dying granny.
For this year’s meetup they published a press release where they have a list of “key topics for discussion” that looks like this:
1. Geopolitical Realignments
2. NATO Challenges
4. Indo-Pacific Realignment
5. Sino-US Tech Competition
7. Continuity of Government and the Economy
8. Disruption of the Global Financial System
10. Energy Security and Sustainability
11. Post Pandemic Health
12. Fragmentation of Democratic Societies
13. Trade and Deglobalisation
Interestingly the last time Ukraine featured as a headline topic was 2014. That was around the time the U.S. was pumping billions of dollars into Ukraine to “spread democracy” as they do, by funding an uprising and a regime-change and deciding who should and shouldn’t be part of the new Ukrainian Government.
Bilderberg is a more focussed affair than Davos, concentrating its efforts on North America and Europe. It’s also less formal, considered a Private Meeting and that the participants who are there specifically because of their roles and allegiances, apparently are there “as individuals rather than in any official capacity, and hence are not bound by the conventions of their office or by pre-agreed positions”, which is oxymoronic and highly convenient, as it thusly permits the following…
The Bilderberg Meeting is a forum for informal discussions about major issues. The meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule, which states that participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s) nor any other participant may be revealed.https://www.bilderbergmeetings.org/press/press-release/press-release
On their “disclaimer” page they go to great lengths to state that Bilderberg Meetings “is not responsible for” anything, be that the content of the site, the use of that content, the reliability of the content, the site or anything at all really. They also state that nothing from their site should be copied in any way. Ooops. Well, fair use and all that.
They published a list of participants (PDF) that will be involved in this “informal discussion”, who are definitely not there in any official capacity, and are there to simply “listen, reflect and gather insights”.
Both Henry Kissinger and Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla were at this meeting too. Some of the same companies, organisations and Governments were represented at both Davos 2022 and Bilderberg 2022.
A reasonable question is “what is the intended outcome of these Bilderberg Meetings?”. They have been going on since 1954, and while their website does list the discussed topics for all those meetings, we are simultaneously expected to believe this is just chit-chat where top brass from Governments, industry and think-tank policy influencing NGOs get together for scones and Earl Grey, and it really has nothing to do with their day jobs, so it’s fine that there is no record of who said what, and that nobody is allowed to repeat it outside the Meeting.
For believers in the fiction of democracy this SHOULD be a real problem. How do you reconcile these two facts… 1) your allegedly democratically elected representatives hobnob with international corporate heads, foreign Government people and people from organisations that are expressly dedicated to the push for a globalist one-world everything, cannot talk about those discussions, there is no recourse to find out what was discussed, and 2) the idea of an open, accountable democracy? The answer obviously is, you can’t.
It should be obvious by now that Governments and big business are a partnership, at the international level. It even has a name, it’s called (and we have mentioned this before) the Public-Private Partnership. A researcher and writer by the name of Iain Davis has coined the term Global Public-Private Partnership, or GPPP as a term for this international coalition and convergence of financial and ideological interests. Iain has a website that is an excellent resource as he examines and presents information and evidence that you’ll tend not to find on the BBC for example. Hopefully Iain won’t mind us adopting that term here as a handy way to refer to this global cabal that believes it has the right to “shape the future” how they want it, regardless of the rights, wishes and opinions of the billions of people their lunatic policies affect.
We’re going to look at the origins and history of the WEF and Bilderberg in another article, but for now as we can see, the collective and collaborative interests of the GPPP are what these meetings and plans are about, regardless of how many buzzwords and phrases they use to pretend they are doing this to help us all.
