The World Economic Forum (WEF) - Davos 2022 Conference held this last week of May

Recommended Posts

During the last full week of May…

   …we had the Davos World Economic Forum conferences.

,,,  …Also meeting in Switzerland was the World Health Organization (WHO).

.. …Plus, G7 Energy Ministers got together in Germany.

G7 urges Opec to raise output to cool oil market

G7 energy ministers have called on the Opec group of oil producing countries to pump more oil as Russia’s war in Ukraine pushes crude prices to their highest levels in a decade.
The call was contained in the final communique of a meeting of G7 energy and environment ministers in Germany, which holds the rotating presidency of the group of advanced industrial economies.
The ministers noted that the war had triggered an increase in prices for oil, gas and coal, stoking a surge in inflation that was putting huge strain on low-income households as well as businesses and industry.
“We call on oil and gas producing countries to act in a responsible manner and to respond to tightening international markets, noting that Opec has a key role to play,” the ministers said.
They also said it was a matter of “special urgency” for the EU to decrease its dependency on Russian natural gas, and stressed the important role increased supplies of liquefied natural gas (LNG) could play “in order to mitigate potential supply disruptions of pipeline gas, especially to European markets”.
Earlier this month, G7 leaders committed their countries to phasing out their dependency on Russian energy, including by banning imports of Russian oil.
The EU is also discussing the option of an embargo on Russian crude, though Hungary is opposed.
Despite the G7’s common position on oil, it is unclear whether oil producing countries will heed their call for more action. Saudi Arabia has been resisting western pressure to accelerate production increases to help bring down prices, insisting there is no lack of supply.
The Opec+ group, which includes Russia, slashed production as part of output agreements made during the pandemic, before restoring it gradually at a rate of 400,000 barrels a day each month. Oil prices have almost doubled in the past year to trade close to $120 a barrel, the highest level since 2014, leading to criticism of Gulf states such as Saudi Arabia with spare production capacity.
The kingdom is also not backfilling quotas for members that have struggled to restore production, leaving many to argue the group has left the market short of supplies.
Saudi Arabia signalled this month that it would stand by Russia as a member of Opec+ despite tightening western sanctions on Moscow.
Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, the Saudi energy minister, said Riyadh was hoping “to work out an agreement with Opec+ . . . which includes Russia”, insisting the “world should appreciate the value” of the alliance of producers.
His comments were an important sign of support for Russia from a traditional ally of the US, and came amid intensifying efforts by the west to isolate Moscow and falling Russian oil production.
The G7 ministers also pledged for the first time to decarbonise their electricity sectors by 2035 and eventually phase out coal power generation, part of efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
That represents a significant move by G7 member states Italy, Japan and Canada. The US and Germany already had a 2035 target for zero carbon electricity and the UK’s target is earlier.
But the ministers stopped short of promising to end coal power by 2030, a proposal that had been pushed by Berlin. The pledge was removed because of opposition from the US and Japan, according to people familiar with the discussions.
The communique commits the G7 to a goal of “achieving predominantly decarbonised electricity sectors by 2035” and to “concrete and timely steps towards the goal of an eventual phaseout of domestic unabated coal power generation”.

G7 urges Opec to raise output to cool oil market

Irina Slav on Energy writes a wonderful article with links about the energy and economic status of nations. It contains snips of clever humor.

May 30, 2022
Game of responsibilities

“Based on the available information, Russia is fulfilling its long-term contracts with European counterparts – but its exports to Europe are down from their 2019 level. The IEA believes that Russia could do more to increase gas availability to Europe and ensure storage is filled to adequate levels in preparation for the coming winter heating season. This is also an opportunity for Russia to underscore its credentials as a reliable supplier to the European market.”

This is an excerpt from an IEA Statement on recent developments in natural gas and electricity markets, issued last September when the first signs that Europe was on its way to an energy crisis began to appear. The agency went on to reiterate the call for Gazprom, and by extension Russia, to prove they are a reliable partner to the EU, effectively suggesting they were, in fact, unreliable and oh, the shame.

“We call on oil and gas-producing countries to act in a responsible manner and to respond to tightening international markets, noting that Opec has a key role to play.”

This is a rather more recent statement, made by the energy and environment ministers of G7 who last week met in Germany to discuss a way out of the current unenviable energy security situation across the group.

In case this call sounds familiar, it’s because it is. OPEC has become very popular with the Western political crowd in the past year. First, President Biden called on the cartel to boost production more quickly because prices at the pump were rising and that always makes the White House nervous. Then he threatened the cartel in November because OPEC refused to boost production.

"There are other tools in the arsenal that we have to deal with other countries at an appropriate time," Biden said in November. Today, seven months later, this not-so-veiled threat sounds particularly toothless. They had seven months to force OPEC to act. They couldn’t.

Now, it’s G7’s turn to try and exert pressure on a group that has clearly stated it is not interested in doing what anyone else tells them to do. There is no doubt in my mind that OPEC would welcome the G7 remarks, which implicitly suggest it has been acting irresponsibly. There is also no doubt it will do zero in response to these remarks because prices are right where OPEC wants them and U.S. shale is not going to ride out drills blazing and fill the gap.

Accusing someone of acting against your interests by telling them to act responsibly appears to be the go-to approach of the world’s leading economies and their international organs such as the IEA.

The goal seems to be making the target of these accusations feel ashamed and rectify their behaviour. Also, assigning a responsibility for your own energy security to an external party is such a convenient way to shirk your own responsibility for guaranteeing this security.

It is difficult to see any other point to that sort of behaviour. What is even more difficult, however, is accepting that those with the calls for responsible behaviour actually expect this tactic to work.

Someone with a more political focus might argue that this sort of attitude is a remnant from Europe’s colonial past when colonised peoples were viewed as quite childlike in their ignorance of the civilised ways, as it were. I would agree with such an argument but add it is not the only explanation.

G7 is the club of the most advanced economies in the world — the most advanced and the wealthiest, the economies that the rest of the world is supposed to look up to. To think that G7 — Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States —could be dependent on someone as backward (in economic diversification, that is, right?) as the Middle East oil kingdoms for its livelihood is an idea so unpalatable that it would never ever be voiced openly. It could only be voiced as a call on those oil kingdoms to “act in a responsible manner”.

UK’s economy surprised observers in March by shrinking, albeit modestly, as the cost-of-living crisis began to take its toll. The crisis, in case anyone has already conveniently forgotten, began last year as for some mysterious reason renewables appeared incapable of replacing fossil fuels completely.

This did not prevent the Ministry of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy from saying that the country "has no issues with either gas or electricity supply, and the government is fully prepared for any scenario, even those that are extreme and very unlikely to pass".

"Thanks to a massive £90bn investment in renewable energy in the last decade, we have one of the most reliable and diverse energy systems in the world, and unlike Europe, we are not dependent on Russian energy imports," a spokesperson for the ministry said today, as quoted by Sky News, which is even cuter. It becomes cuter still if you recall how Boris Johnson went to Riyadh in March, quite urgently, and it was not to discuss the weather.

In Italy, Confindustria just warned that if Russia suspends gas exports to the country, the G7 economy would suffer a 2% hit both this year and next. "A halt of gas imports from Russia could have a very strong effect on the already weakened Italian economy," the industry group said.

Why weakened? Because of commodity prices. The Draghi government has already poured the equivalent of $36 billion into the economy to cushion the blow and will probably need to pour some more as commodity prices are not exactly going down. There are a lot of irresponsible players around, it seems.

Meanwhile Canada is also struggling with runaway inflation. The biggest producer of heavy oil is quite energy independent but its economy is intimately intertwined with that of its southern neighbour. If the U.S. suffers, so does Canada.

In fact, some analysts are forecasting a recession for Canada: "The reason why that outlook is the most likely to occur, is because … runaway inflation has always led and ended in significant recessions for the last 50 years,” according to one such analysts, former CIBC World Markets chief economist Jeff Rubin.

U.S. GDP shrank by 1.5% in the first quarter but April data showed an increase in consumer spending, which gave cause for optimism to many an analyst. For these analysts, an increase in consumer spending, which provides two-thirds of U.S. economic growth, is always good news and this is understandable.

Yet there’s one grim question hanging in the air: with fuel prices on an inexorable rise leading to higher prices for virtually everything, how long until Americans stop spending more? It’s a very scary question for an economy so dependent on consumer spending — more dependent on it than Saudi Arabia is on oil for its economic growth, by the way.

Inflation seems to be cooling off in the United States, which has prompted optimism and expectations for possibly more modest interest rate hikes. Based on oil prices, however, this optimism may turn out to be premature.

Germany’s economy expanded at a respectable 0.2% pace in the first quarter, disappointing those who expected a recession. Yet it is by no means out of the woods yet. Inflation is at an all-time high of 7.4% and expected to stay at 7% for the whole year, double last year’s level.

Germans are already curbing their spending, including on energy, in order to cope. Oh, and the German economy could take a hit of 12% if Russian gas supply stops abruptly, for example, I don’t know, if Germany does what the Ukraine wants it to do and shuts off Nord Stream 1.

France, the nuclear powerhouse of the European Union, is suffering from a combination of slow economic growth and high inflation because EU members, especially those in the eurozone, are extremely interdependent and if one suffers, they all suffer. France, then, is on the brink of the worst of the worst: stagflation. The government is already planning measures such as food vouchers and an increase in welfare payments to keep its notoriously short-fused citizens from revolting yet again.

Finally, Japan is so dependent on foreign energy that despite its general position on the war in the Ukraine, which is one of unequivocal condemnation of Russia, it has remained a member of the consortium pumping oil off the coast of Sakhalin Island and has stated bluntly that it cannot afford to leave.

Economic growth meanwhile is slowing, booking a contraction during the first quarter, prompting talk of stagflation for the world’s third-largest economy. Consumer spending, unlike the United States, has dropped as inflation creeps upwards.

G7 members are not doing terrifically well, then, and a big part of the reason for this, along with the lingering effects of pandemic lockdowns, is the direction of oil prices. Members’ own actions have of course contributed to this direction, which is an idea just as unpalatable as the idea that G7 could be uncomfortably dependent on the actions of other countries.

It is, in fact, so unpalatable that it has already produced the first truly farcical result: EC President Ursual von der Leyen told Mika Brzezinski last week that the EU sort of needs to continue buying Russian oil so that Russia couldn’t sell it on other markets for more money.

Yes, she said this, although I feel it necessary to note that she did not use those exact words, as one Twitter commentator pointed out. Of course she wouldn’t. Just like G7 energy ministers wouldn’t openly beg Saudi Arabia and the UAE for oil. They would instead call on them to act in a responsible manner.

I’ll leave you with a Birol quote from that IEA statement on recent gas developments from last September: “Recent increases in global natural gas prices are the result of multiple factors, and it is inaccurate and misleading to lay the responsibility at the door of the clean energy transition,” the head of the IEA said.

They like to talk about responsibility, these OECD leaders, don’t they? Oh, in the meantime, the Saudis and the Emiratis are warning that the world’s spare oil production capacity is dwindling because of underinvestment. Not a word from G7 on that. It’s not their responsibility, I imagine.

Bill Gates: Next Pandemic Likely To Be Caused By Climate Change

Tuesday, May 31, 2022 - 04:00 AM

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

Billionaire Bill Gates says there’s a 50 per cent chance the next pandemic will be caused by man-made climate change or be deliberately released by a bio-terrorist.


The Microsoft founder made the comments during an interview with Spanish news outlet El Diario.

Asserting that the next major pandemic is likely to occur within 20 years, Gates said,It could be a virus made by man, by a bioterrorist who designed it and intentionally circulated it. That is a very scary scenario because they could try to spread it in different places at once.”

Or it could be something that makes the leap from the natural world. The human population is growing and we are invading more and more ecosystems. That is why I calculate that there is a 50% chance that we will have a pandemic of natural origin in the next 20 years, as a consequence of climate change,” he added.

The prediction that climate change will cause a virus which will then require another global vaccine rollout is somewhat convenient for Gates given that he is heavily invested in both areas.

Gates reiterated the call made in his recent book to pump billions of dollars into researching future pathogens by creating a 3,000-strong team of specialists under the control of the World Health Organization, which would require a 25% budgetary increase.

Commenting on the recent outbreak of monkeypox, Gates said “there is very little chance” it will have an impact anything like coronavirus, although he cautioned that it could mutate into something significantly nastier.

Gates infamously warned of a coming super-virus five years before the emergence of COVID-19 during a 2015 TED talk.

As we highlighted earlier this month, Gates warned that COVID was not over and that there is likely to be an “even more fatal” variant of the virus coming.

During an event at the Munich Security Conference back in February, Gates said that “sadly” Omicron is a “type of vaccine” and has “done a better job getting out to the world population than we have with vaccines” by providing natural immunity.

World Economic Forum Pushes Facial Recognition Technology

Tyler Durden's Photo

Tuesday, May 31, 2022 - 01:00 AM

Authored by John Mac Ghlionn via The Epoch Times,

The World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, has just ended. The theme of the five-day event, “Working Together, Restoring Trust,” was both vague and troubling, in equal measures.


Remember, this is the WEF we are discussing here, an international organization actively pushing “The Great Reset.” The theme could just as easily have read “Suffering Together, Restoring Compliance.”

Among the many issues discussed, members focused on the spread of misinformation and disinformation. How, they asked, can the proliferation of harmful content be combatted? It’s easy, they answered, how about introducing digital IDs?

The WEF recently rolled out the Global Coalition for Digital Safety, an initiative designed to “accelerate public-private cooperation to tackle harmful content online.” In an effort to remedy the scourge of malicious material, the WEF has brought together a “diverse group of leaders who are well placed to exchange best practices for new online safety regulation and help millions of connected citizens improve digital media literacy.”

These “diverse leaders” include head honchos at the likes of Google, Microsoft, Interpol, and a number of government ministers. Another coalition member is Yoti, a company that strives to make the internet a safer place. How so? Through the use of digital IDs.

The dangers posed by digital IDs cannot be emphasized enough. As the researcher Brett Solomon—a man “who has tracked the advantages and perils of technology for human rights” for well over a decade—previously noted, the mass rollout of digital IDs “poses one of the gravest risks to human rights of any technology that we have encountered.”

As we rush “headlong into a future where new technologies will converge to make this risk much more severe,” we must prepare ourselves for the dawn of “near-perfect facial recognition technology and other identifiers, from the human gait to breath to iris,” according to Solomon.

According to the tech researcher, biometric databases of the not-too-distant future will be centralized in nature. Opaque in the extreme, our data will be harvested by the people in the highest positions imaginable—you know, the kind of people who travel to Davos for polite debates.

Moreover, added Solomon, throw geolocation of identifiers into the mix, and you have a recipe for absolute chaos. Such identifiers track you—more specifically, the digital you—in real time. You can run all you want, but you cannot hide.

The Panopticon Gets a Digital Upgrade

Canada, a country with close ties to the WEF, is actively considering the use of digital IDs. According to the Canada Gazette, the country’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau, has spoken with airlines about introducing “digital identity documents” and “biometric travel documents.”

Catherine Luelo, Canada’s chief information officer, has also spoken about the need for digital identity. Luelo is currently spearheading Canada’s digital innovation strategy, which seeks to introduce digital IDs across the entire public sector.

Canada’s plan is part of a broader plan, one that was initiated by the World Economic Forum. In a white paper released last year, authors at the WEF discussed the many ways in which digital ID programs will become an integral part of the financial services industry.

Resistance is futile. Digital IDs may soon be the norm. In the United States, as analysts at Reclaim the Net recently reported, the U.S. Postal Service is pushing for the introduction of digital IDs. The USPS wants to “have a more prominent role in biometric data collection and digital ID services.”

More worryingly, the USPS has already partnered with the General Services Administration (GSA) and the FBI, two prominent “biometric data collection pilots.”

The bad news doesn’t end there. As I have discussed elsewhere, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) also wants your face.

Digital IDs Are Not Compatible With Democracy

Freedom House, an international group that was established to promote the idea of democracy, recently warned that when it comes to respecting democratic norms, like the right to privacy, the United States is going backward.

The country’s “democratic institutions have suffered erosion, as reflected in partisan pressure on the electoral process, bias and dysfunction in the criminal justice system, harmful policies on immigration and asylum seekers, and growing disparities in wealth, economic opportunity, and political influence,” Freedom House argued.

Yes, but what about digital surveillance? What about the government’s desire (and the organizations closely affiliated with the government) to spy on the American people? What about the push to mine people for data and use the information gathered to manipulate and control?

For those who doubt that the United States is backsliding, please note that Argentina and Mongolia now rank higher on the democracy ladder, according to a Freedom House 2021 report. Who is to blame for the regression? The very people elected to keep citizens safe, I contend.

The United States is fast becoming a first-world country with third-world protections for its people. No one should be happy about this. Well, almost no one, except, perhaps, the elites in Davos.

A Global ESG System Is Almost Here: We Should Be Worried

Tyler Durden's Photo
by Tyler Durden
Wednesday, Jun 01, 2022 - 01:00 AM

Commentary by Jack McPherrin via The Epoch Times,

Day two of the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, started off on a concerning note.



Some of the chief architects of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) scores met during a session called “Global ESG for Global Resilience,” and have clearly decided to double down on their objective for a new global economic order that transcends national borders and replaces free-market capitalism.

Destroying free-market capitalism in favor of a new “stakeholder” model, in which global elites hold all the power, has been their objective for years. A single ESG system gets them much closer to this goal, and will be significantly more effective at eroding national sovereignty, circumventing democratic processes, coercing companies into compliance, and ultimately restricting individual choice.

Early in the session, Hong Kong Stock Exchange Chairman Laura Cha got right to the point. She revealed, “In order for the [ESG] disclosures to be meaningful, we need to have a harmonized standard. … It would be very good in terms of the work that the ISSB [International Sustainability Standards Board] is doing to bring about some standardized global measures.”

The ISSB is a new standard-setting board developed for the sole purpose of institutionalizing this global framework.

ISSB Chairman Emmanuel Faber confirmed that these efforts have begun: “We just a week ago … we convened the first-ever working group of jurisdictions on sustainability standard alignment …. And there was China, Japan, [the] UK, [the] U.S., and [the] EU. … And that is just the start.”

He had earlier stated, “We can’t stay at the taxonomy levels of any jurisdiction. Because they are linked to a certain political consensus and they might be changing tomorrow. So, if you look at the long-term, you need to go deeper than the taxonomies.

Reading between the lines, Faber seems to be saying that he intends to institutionalize a top-down system that will infiltrate all national borders and be impervious to political decision-making, which would render the idea of democracy impotent.

Much of the remainder of the conversation was an illuminating look at the ways in which elites will threaten and coerce the world into compliance.

Bank of America Chairman and CEO Brian Moynihan didn’t waste any time, immediately threatening companies to get in line. When asked if he believed that the war in Ukraine and COVID-19 have set efforts to expand ESG back, he responded, “No. … The reality is that operating companies have made commitments, along multiple dimensions …  you can’t just say, ‘Oh, it’s inconvenient right now.’”

He added: “I don’t see there’s a way you can walk away from it, because your customers won’t let you, your employees won’t let you, and your shareholders shouldn’t, won’t let you. And, by the way, society won’t let you.”

Gee, Brian, it really doesn’t sound like these companies are doing this based upon free will.

Moynihan also committed to using the economic clout of his entire organization, including the funds of his individual account holders, saying, “200,000 people, a three trillion-dollar balance sheet, 60 billion in expenses; you start aiming that gun, and you take that across all these companies, it is huge …. [The companies] delivering on the metrics will get more capital, the ones that won’t will get less.”

He even discussed his implementation of a training regimen for each of his lending officers, educating them on how to talk to their clients about the benefits of ESG-resilient companies.

Moynihan went on to discuss how Bank of America and other organizations will make purchasing decisions related to their supply chains that will be based on their net-zero commitments, all of which will trickle down to businesses and consumers.

He warned customers to get on board: “What we’re trying to do is educate those customers. The idea is: We’re going to stick with you, but you have to start to think about this. … We’ve got to get the rest of the world ready to go. … Don’t think this is other people’s problems. This could become your problem.”

Brian, you’re manufacturing the “problem,” just like you’re manufacturing “consent.”

Unilever CEO Alan Jope echoed similar commitments to shutting off supply valves for the rest of the world in favor of his objectives, which, by the way, won’t help solve our current supply chain issues and the related inflationary crisis.

He preached, “We’ve pledged to only do business with suppliers who are, for example, paying their people properly a fair living wage … who have made net-zero commitments, so we can take our impact into the entire universe of people who work with our company.”

In one of the most concerning statements of the morning, Jope declared that for this system to work, “It has to go from government and regulators, into the capitalist system, big companies, small and medium-sized entities; but actually, the ultimate democratization, the ultimate way of moving markets is when the consumer is voting with her wallet.”

First, the growing alliance between big government and big business—with a little help from the media—carries substantial fascist overtones.

Second, the consumer you reference doesn’t have a free choice, Alan. What you hope to do is akin to taking a popular candidate off an electoral ballot—like they do in electoral autocracies such as Russia—and forcing people to choose between limited options that are unlikely to be their preference.

There’s a reason a natural market exists for these goods; there’s consumer demand, which is in turn fulfilled by producers. These people are trying to both fundamentally alter demand by changing consumer preferences, while fundamentally altering supply by destroying producers who don’t join their team.

Faber frames these efforts as “We are not going to say what’s good or what’s bad. We are just providing the information for people to make decisions.”

Simply put, that is a lie.

As has clearly been stated by members of this WEF panel, what these elites are actually doing is steering investment away from companies that don’t align with their vision for the world, and severing relationships with companies—causing a trickle-down reduction in choice for the rest of the market—that don’t get on board.

This isn’t about information; it’s about control, and power.

These people most want globalization and are prepared to do anything to achieve this by World Wide manipulation of everything.

Take Bill Gates, the most extensive land ownership of farmland in the United States, and yet he plants nothing but decries that the world is running out of food.

These few people believe that a group of globalists should control everything, notwithstanding government, any government!

They are the most dangerous people in the world as we know them!

World Economic Forum Urges People To Eat Seaweed, Algae, & Cacti To Save The Planet

Tyler Durden's Photo

Wednesday, Jun 01, 2022 - 04:00 AM

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

World Economic Forum technocrats are urging people to ditch meat and other foods deemed to be harmful to the planet and instead consume “climate beneficial foods” such as seaweed, algae and cacti.


The WEF made the call as it wrapped up the 2022 meeting of global elitists in Davos, Switzerland.

A video summary was posted to Twitter in which the WEF promoted alternatives to a food system it claimed is responsible for two thirds of global carbon dioxide emissions.  [VIDEOS]

A starter list published by the organization triumphs algae as being “an ideal replacement for meat” because it has a “carbon-negative profile” and is high in “essential fatty acids and high vitamin and antioxidants content.”

The guide also highlights cacti as containing “high amounts of vitamins C and E, carotenoids, fibre and amino acids,” noting that it is already commonly eaten in Mexico.

“This food crisis is real, and we must find solutions,” World Trade Organization Director-General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala said.

Back in December 2020, the World Economic Forum published two articles on its website which explored how people could be conditioned to get used to the idea of eating weeds, bugs and drinking sewage water in order to reduce CO2 emissions.

Earlier this year, Vanderbilt University Professor Amanda Little argued that everyone in the world needs to start dining on insects and that the EU’s approval of them conferred a form of “dignity” to their consumption.

In February, billionaire-owned news outlet Bloomberg said Americans should cope with soaring inflation by eating lentils instead of meat.

A group of environmental economists in Germany also demanded that huge taxes be imposed on meat products to fight climate change, with calls for beef to be 56 per cent more expensive.

“There is no record of exactly what was served to the 2,500 invited delegates dining at the elite gathering in Davos and whether or not the WEF’s own dietary instructions were followed by participants,” writes Simon Kent.

If the Cop26 climate change summit in Scotland last year was any indication, algae and cacti weren’t on the menu.

Attendees there enjoyed dishes full of animal-based ingredients that were at least double the carbon footprint of the average UK meal.

China Elected To World Health Organisation Executive Board With No Objections

Wednesday, Jun 01, 2022 - 09:05 PM

Authored by Steve Watson via Summit News,

China has been elected to the World Health Organisation’s Executive Board with zero objections from any democratic countries, despite its voluminous attempts to cover up the Coronavirus outbreak and its subsequent brutal lockdowns.


Hillel Neuer of the watchdog group UN Watch noted “this is the regime that crushed” warnings from whistleblowers in late 2019 and early 2020.

He also noted that “not a single democracy spoke out to object.”


Spectator columnist Ross Clark commented that the WHO is “stuffed with small countries, many with lousy human rights records, which will not dare to challenge China or which will not have the political clout to do so.”

Lets remember that the head of the World Health Organization’s origin investigation into COVID-19 has admitted that China basically ordered his team on what to write in their report and allowed them to mention the lab leak theory, but only on the condition that they didn’t recommend following it up.

In addition, China has refused to cooperate with the renewed WHO probe, declaring that any attempt to look into the lab leak theory goes “against science” and claiming, contrary to U.S. intelligence and the WHO’s own conclusions, that workers in the lab were hospitalised with COVID in the autumn of 2020.

China’s government run Academy of Sciences also shortlisted the Wuhan bio-lab for its ‘Outstanding Science Achievement’ prize for work with coronaviruses.

Talk about rubbing it in.

Jamie Metzl, a leading advisor for the World Health Organisation itself has stated that China engaged in a “massive cover up” of the coronavirus pandemic.

Metzl also pointed out that the World Health Organisation “doesn’t have the mandate to have its own surveillance capabilities,” and was therefore easily batted away by China in the early days of the outbreak when it requested to send responders.

The WHO, which facilitated China’s draconian response to COVID by insisting the western world impose similar lockdowns, is also now urging that gay pride events go ahead despite the clear risk of them being monkeypox super-spreader events, given that the virus is transmitted through close physical contact.

Awarding China a seat on the WHO Executive Board is like if North Korea was put in charge of the UN Conference on Disarmament…oh wait, they really did that too.

When one talks about the “global elite”, one usually refers to a small group of wealthy and powerful individuals who operate beyond national borders. Through various organizations, these non-elected individuals gather in semi-secrecy to decide policies they want to see applied on a global level.


The World Economic Forum (WEF) is smack dab in the middle of it all. Indeed, through its annual Davos meetings, the WEF attempts to legitimize and normalize its influence on the world’s democratic nations by having a panel of world leaders attending and speaking at the event.

A simple look at the list of attendees at these meetings reveals the organization’s incredible reach and influence. The biggest names in media, politics, business, science, technology, and finance are represented at the WEF.



According to mass media, the Davos meetings gather people to discuss issues such as “inequality, climate change, and international cooperation”. This simplistic description appears to be custom-made to cause the average citizen to yawn in boredom. But topics at the WEF go much further than “inequality”.

Throughout the years, people at the WEF have said some highly disturbing things, none of which garnered proper media attention. In fact, when one pieces together the topics championed by the WEF, an overarching theme emerges: The total control of humanity using media, science, and technology while reshaping democracies to form a global government.

If this sounds like a far-fetched conspiracy theory, keep reading. Here are the 10 most dystopian things that are being pushed by the WEF right now. This list sorted is in no particular order. Because they’re all equally crazy.

#10 Penetrating Governments....








The video proudly says:

“NASA has invented a system that can ID you from your heartbeat using a laser.”




#3 Tracking Your Clothes

The WEF wants to control your clothes. And they’ve made a video about it.




In Conclusion

Upon reviewing this list, two common themes become obvious. The first theme is “penetration”. The WEF wants to penetrate governments using “Global Leaders” (aka Manchurian candidates). It also wants to penetrate our bodies through pills, microchips, and vaccines. It also wants to penetrate our minds using soundwaves, censorship, and propaganda.

The other theme is “control”. They want to control what we think, where we go, what we say, what we eat, and what we wear.

Do you know who agrees with the WEF?....

There was a question about morality in a discussion board...... the question asked if the center of concern is causing no harm to others........


Not sure if a simplified version is suitable  a guide on morality, including how we want to exert control, power etc. But, for your second reference:




If we are doing it right, we are BEASTly.

If we are not doing it right, we are WORSE THAN A BEAST.

In other words, we are NO LONGER HUMANE in all we do.
