Who Put the World Economic Forum in Charge of Everything?

Just a few years ago, only a relatively small number of people had heard of the WEF

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is once again hosting the annual Davos summit in Switzerland. For the highly influential and ultrawealthy people of the world, it’s the place to get together, hobnob, exchange investment ideas, hit the ski slopes, and drink champagne.

At least, that used to be my perception. But the WEF is much more than that. By all appearances, it’s the most influential, if not the most powerful, organization in the world. It’s run by 84-year-old Klaus Schwab, a man who, in most circumstances, would be more at home on a golf course if not in a retirement community rather than directing an organization with an undeniably outsized global influence.

The WEF: A Driving Force in the World

The WEF was founded by Schwab in 1971, and WEF membership, along with the annual Davos meeting, attracts the usual suspects of industrialists, Big Tech moguls, thinkers, scientists, social engineering types, and global financial, political, and religious figures. Cultural leaders, such as Bono from the band U2 and megachurch pastor Rick Warren, have also been prominently featured.

It turns out that there are good reasons for this. Getting the elite who shape politics, economics, and cultural perceptions all in one place to decide on how to fundamentally transform the world without worrying about how it may affect billions of people is quite efficient.

As we now know, the WEF has become a driving force in the world. The "Great Reset" initiative is the brainchild of the WEF and, more specifically, from the mind of Schwab. It was conceived more than a decade ago, but the COVID-19 pandemic was its catalyst.

Pandemic and Climate Change: Pretension for Great Reset Tyranny

A global medical emergency, such as the pandemic, made stripping ordinary people of their rights easily justifiable in the short term. The so-called climate change emergency provides the political cover to continue those policies—and add worse ones—over the long term.
The objective of the Great Reset, as expressed on the WEF website, is to restructure the entire world into a top-down dictatorship that's ruled by the elites. That grand plan calls for the elimination of sovereign nation-states and borders, as well as the removal of property and even human rights from the rest of us.
Not surprisingly, the WEF partners with BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager. Both share a common vision of stakeholder capitalism that limits access to the power and wealth of corporations and investments to the elite. In other words, the adoption of the China economic model, with an ultra-wealthy class at the top and a vast working class at the bottom with very limited lives.
The Great Reset also involves changing human beings—all of us. Schwab’s WEF cohort is professor and author Yuval Noah Harari, who has publicly declared that free will in human beings “is over” and that humans are just “hackable animals” to be controlled by digital or nanochip implants. According to Schwab, under the Fourth Industrial Revolution, humans will be genetically altered and chipped in the fusion of digital technology and human beings.
Do we really want a cluster of WEF megalomaniacs telling everyone else how the world will be and how we'll all be chipped, genetically altered, and herded like cattle–or worse?
Who wants a Great Reset in which individuals have no right to a car, to bodily autonomy, or to be just left alone to live their lives as they wish?

In short, who made the WEF the ruling authority over the world?

It’s a question that deserves an answer—and sooner rather than later.

A Man of the World

Let’s begin with the man himself. Schwab’s level of accomplishment and pedigree is just what one might expect for a man with such grand aspirations. He holds two doctorates, one in engineering (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich ETH) and another in economics (University of Fribourg). He also holds a master’s degree in public administration from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

Schwab is also a former professor of business policy at the University of Geneva, a former member of the U.N. High-Level Advisory Board on Sustainable Development, and a former vice-chairman of the U.N. Committee for Development Planning, and he holds numerous honoraria from think tanks, academia, and institutions around the world.

As a “thought leader,” Schwab’s latest books include "The Fourth Industrial Revolution" (2016), a worldwide bestseller translated into 30 languages; "Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution" (2018); "COVID-19: The Great Reset" (2020); and "Stakeholder Capitalism" (2021).

Those innocuous ideas and books may sound pleasing to some. Still, in practice, they're all about power flowing up to the “global elite” in order to exercise absolute control over the rest of us, which would have all kinds of negative consequences.

The WEF's Great Reset isn't just a marketing ploy. It involves radical political and economic changes, as well as the reengineering of mankind. But one might be forgiven for wondering in whose image "Human 2.0" is to be made.

Penetrating Nations to Deconstruct Them

Privacy rights, religious rights, self-determination, and other individual rights will be going down to zero. So, too, will nation-states, national identity, and citizenship. What’s more, the WEF has penetrated governments with its acolytes with the objective of carrying out its Great Reset plans.
Among those WEF thralls who have assumed power in what used to be Western republics and democracies include Canada’s own Justin Trudeau, who's leading that nation into the very catacombs of ungodly global fascism by freezing bank accounts of those opposed to mandated COVID-19 vaccines or perceived fixed elections in Brazil.
Also included in that camp is New Zealand’s Jacinda Ardern, an ardent liberal fascist and favorite of the global elites. Thousands of New Zealanders were stripped of their human and parental rights for refusing COVID-19 vaccines that can harm or even kill recipients.

Another Teutonic Overlord?

The last thing the world needs is one more wannabe Teutonic overlord whose top people think that God is dead and that life has no meaning. But that’s the reality of the WEF, the Great Reset, and the dehumanized dystopian world that would certainly follow if they were successful.

The very bright spot in all of this?

God sees what the wicked plan is and brings destruction upon it. Not just sometimes, but every time.
