[Ed. – John Mac Ghlionn does an excellent service here calling out the radical inhumanity of the World Economic Forum’s vision. It’s the WEF founder he suggests may be the world’s most dangerous man.]
Democracy, we’re told, dies in darkness. No, democracy dies in Davos.
If in doubt, please read the following:
“Welcome to the year 2030. Welcome to my city – or should I say, ‘our city’. I don’t own anything. I don’t own a car. I don’t own a house. I don’t own any appliances or any clothes. It might seem odd to you, but it makes perfect sense for us in this city. Everything you considered a product, has now become a service.’
These are not lines from an episode of “Black Mirror.” No, these lines come directly from the World Economic Forum website. Founded in 1970, the World Economic Forum (WEF) is arguably the most influential platform in the world. Each year, some of the most influential figures in politics and tech gather for a meeting in Davos. The most recent meeting occurred in January, and the topics discussed are of profound importance.
