Michael Shellenberger, who has been involved in breaking down some of the Twitter files releases, has posted a thread and an article about the World Economic Forum, ahead of its meeting in Davos this week.
Shellenberger says that the World Economic Forum is “fighting back against those who say it and its founder are seeking global domination through a ‘great reset’ aimed at stripping the masses of their private property, de-industrializing the economy, and making everybody eat bugs.” But Shellenberger takes apart that “defense.”
A WEF managing director claimed in August of last year that the “you’ll own nothing and be happy” meme was a conspiracy theory started by an anti-Semitic account on 4Chan. But that wasn’t true, since it was based on an article on the WEF website from 2016. The spokesperson mentions that article but downplays it as a “years old” opinion article.
The managing director also leaves out the subsequent video put out by the WEF in 2018 that makes it seem far less like a “years-old article.” While they deleted the page that had the video on their site, the video is still up on their Twitter and it’s a creepy, prospective look for 2030.
It was significant enough for them to put together this video that repeated the “own nothing” claim, as well as phasing down meat and eliminating fossil fuels. The video is a festival of all kinds of leftist aims in one place.
Shellenberger noted that if the WEF is calling on others to be transparent, why are they deleting their web pages and why aren’t they forthcoming about their own financial information? Click on this to see the full tweet:
Meanwhile, the WEF’s Klaus Schwab is meeting with a number of world leaders. All kinds of leaders go to Davos (including heads of state like German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and CEOs, including Larry Fink from Blackrock). So if we want to talk about the influence of the WEF on things, it appears quite significant.
Elon Musk responded to Shellenberger’s thread saying it gave him the “willies.”
Shellenberger responded with the WEF’s take on overpopulation.
As I wrote two years ago, Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” motto was previously used by the WEF. As Schwab said back in 2020:
“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” wrote Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, in an article published on WEF’s website. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”
Schwab also said that “all aspects of our societies and economies” must be “revamped,” “from education to social contracts and working conditions.”
One of the main themes of the meeting that year was that the pandemic had created an “opportunity” to have that radical transformation.
It’s not much of a “conspiracy” when they’re saying it themselves.
