The Elitists Who Want to Rule the World

Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum.

Klaus Schwab is the head of the World Economic Forum; he founded the organization in 1971. Each year, the WEF hosts a massive conference in Davos, Switzerland, with thousands of world leaders, diplomats and experts on various topics gathering to trade ideas about how best to cooperatively run the world. Lest this characterization be seen as overstating the case, Schwab himself said as much this year in opening the conference: “The future is not just happening. The future is built by us, by a powerful community as you here in this room. We have the means to improve the state of the world. But two conditions are necessary. The first one is that we act all as stakeholders of larger communities, that we serve not only self-interest but we serve the community. That’s what we call stakeholder responsibility. And second, that we collaborate.”

This is the call to action for elitists the world over. They appoint themselves the representatives of global interests — without elections, without accountability — and then create mechanisms of national and international order to control citizens over whom they claim to preside. Schwab himself has decoded his favorite term, “stakeholder capitalism.” He wrote in Time magazine in October 2020, “Free markets, trade and competition create so much wealth that in theory they could make everyone better off if there was the will to do so.” To do so, however, would require taking hints from Greta Thunberg, #MeToo and Black Lives Matter; it would require “building…a virtuous economic system” in which companies abandon their core mission of serving customers and shareholders and instead embrace answering questions like “What is the gender pay gap in company X? How many people of diverse backgrounds were hired and promoted? What progress has the company made toward reducing its greenhouse-gas emissions?”

All of this extraordinary arrogance is predicated on a perverse view of how successful change works within decentralized systems. As Schwab himself acknowledges, free markets have generated more prosperity than any system in human history. But that’s because free markets are not a top-down imposition, a system created by conspiratorial muckety-mucks in a back room somewhere. Free markets were the outgrowth of centuries of evolutionary societal progress: gradual recognition that private ownership was the greatest incentive toward work and innovation; incremental understanding that individual rights are the only alternative to endless conflict; step-by-step acceptance that decentralized sources of knowledge are both broader and deeper than centralized ones. The most powerful and durable institutions we have are traditional because, as F.A. Hayek wrote, they are “a product of cumulative growth without ever having been designed by any one mind.”

For Schwab and his ilk, however, it’s precisely such an evolutionary approach that must be ended. Instead, he and his rationalist buddies — brilliant businessmen and ambitious politicians, striving bureaucrats and myopic experts — will cure the world of its ills, so long as we grant them power. Or, more likely, so long as they seize power in the name of “stakeholders” to whom they are never answerable.

One of the great ironies of the past several years is the gap between the elitists’ perception of themselves. To the elitists, their solutions failed because citizens of the world lacked the will to listen to them; to the citizens, the elitists failed because their prescriptions were ill-founded. Yet so long as the elitists retain their power, they will continue to push forward their utopian dreams at the expense of those they purport to serve.

Ben Shapiro, 38, is a graduate of UCLA and Harvard Law School, host of “The Ben Shapiro Show,” and Editor-in-Chief of DailyWire.com. He is a three-time New York Times bestselling author; his latest book is “The Authoritarian Moment: How The Left Weaponized America’s Institutions Against Dissent.”

Schwab and his band of elitist WEF vipers, presently congregating in Davos, are even more sinister and dangerous than this article suggests. To control the masses, they talk of the biological “hacking” of humans with advanced technologies, social credit scoring, Orwellian bio-monitoring and data monitoring of every human. Schwab brags that he has infiltrated many governments (including ours) to bring about global change and put power in the hands of an elitist few. They love fear control tactics like the Climate Change hoax and the use of pandemic lockdowns. One of Schwab’s favorite disciples is his puppet, Canadian dictator Justin Trudeau…Forget democracy, individual rights and We the People. Under Schwab, the average Joe is just a cog in his power machine. This is a very scary group that really does want to “Rule the World.” Is this a James Bond movie plot? Like the Orwellian 1984 stuff presently going on, this is real and these elitists have no qualms publicly admitting it.

All the elite want to run the world including Trump and Musk. However, some are realistic about having to deal with the complexities of egos and others’ strategies and goals. The Elite will bung this up and that will cause mayhem. After Europe collapses economically, there will be a power vacuum in North Africa and the Middle East. The awaited Man of Sin will finally be revealed and he will reign from the new Egyptian Capital and command the new center of World commerce.

Watching the WEF coverage this week from Davos, as in all past years I have watched the parade of interviews from various attendees, is a peek behind the curtain as to how these attendees want to re-shape the world to best suit their own personal wants and needs. Oh sure they all say it is for the betterment of the global society or the promotion of this or that special cause de jour, but somehow the changes they are advocating for all benefit their bottom lines in the end.

Watching the WEF It is a very useful glimpse into the type of policies that these “princes of the world” as I call them will be having the various global politicians, that they control, implement over the next 12 to 24 months on their behalf. If you have ever wondered how various global leaders all end up coalescing around a particular policy or goal, that just seems to pop-up out of nowhere, this get together in Davos is where all those ideas and policies originate.

So if you want to know what sort of governmental policies and regulations will be heading your way over the next 12 to 24 months, so you can prepare and position yourself ahead of time, then this is a useful gathering to watch. Think of it as an annual gathering of the extended royal family that comes together to plan how much to raise the rents and taxes on the peasants. Except instead of horses and carriages all converging on the castle, 300 or 400 private Gulfstream jets convey the attendees to this annual meeting in Davos.

They’ve made a mess of covid, probably didn’t expect so many good physicians and people would discover their shenanigans, push back, and so now these elites are scrambling as their days are numbered.

51 years and still no successes. the fastest accomplishment of Marxism is chaos and shortly after, complete failure, failure, failure. they’ve started by insisting the climate was heating up since the 60’s; and in the late 60’s they insisted pollution was going to kill ALL of us (YES, ALL of us) by 1980.

Another term for Elitists is “whack jobs.” These people live in a World solely comprised of their own creation. They are no more in touch with reality than an insane person. Why does the World hold so much reverence for the misspoken words of these crackpots? They should be ousted, and their little band of elitism dismantled. In a time of global chaos, there is no room for these idiots. They are obviously above dementia or Joe Biden would be a member.

Do you mean the sociopaths who wish to control and subject us all to their will??? What could possibly go wrong with narcissistic, egomaniacal, self-righteous control freaks in charge of the world? How could we possibly conceive of NOT complying? Silly us.

Elitism usually goes hand in hand with fascism, whether to the extreme Left or extreme Right on the ideological scale, extremists become fascist elites who believe they have some right to dictate how the masses should be allowed to live.

Klaus Schwab has a last name which is also the name of a group of Germanic people who are notorious for being extremely stubborn, individualistic, and hardworking. Even today, there are parts of Europe which warn young women against marrying a Schwab, because a Schwab is more married to doing work than he will ever be married to his wife. The typical Schwab has a great reputation for being extremely honest and industrious; however, the typical Schwab is also noted for being so stubborn that he has trouble understanding the perspectives of anyone other than himself. It appears that Klaus Schwab only sees what he wants to see, and myopically doesn’t respect the need of people, in general, to depend upon themselves for motivation and improvement. By the way, my father was a proud, stubborn, and fiercely independent workaholic Schwab.

They want to play God. They act like there is no God and they fool themselves into believing they will make this world better. The fool has said in their heart there is no God. Psalm 14:1. They will bring about an evil leader who take all power from them. Then God will end evil. Turn to Jesus while there’s time.

Blah, blah, blah, all I hear is someone else that wants to tell me what to do and how to do it. All while doing exactly what they want and not adhering to the rules they’ve made for the rest of us. As for myself, I’m taking my ball and going home…I don’t wanna play anymore.

Is that not someone elses idea? It seems like I remember someone that had the idea that he was going to change the world and have a master race that would make up the entire world order and take control of the whole planet, and he was going to be the leader of that world, and he started to work on that idea but then the world did not go along with it, I think it was back in the 1940s??? Maybe it was just a bad dream I had.

I am not quite sure i grasp the significance of this article ? however, I can see clearly (according to latest news trends) that the Biden Socialist led Dem party is continuing to proceed to control and denigrate key positions in government
Structure !; Example; the propaganda in the current EPA POOR energy plan proposed by the DEM leadership , and the poorly qualified candidate for the Dept of Tobacco Alcohol etc dept !!! MR BIDEN AND COMRADES ARE ACTING TO DESTROY KEY COMPONENTS OF GOVERNMENT STRUCTURE ! Quite evident that Socialist Dems are sabotaging all good government entities !; these folks are dangerous! And Mr Biden is their SENILE PUPPET!!!!!!!

We are all children of God with free agency. This collaborative group may think they are controlling the world but they are blind leaders. They don’t have omniscience as their Heavenly Father has. I would guess that any plans they make without consulting Him are going to fall short of their aspirations.

Americans need to understand that the subsistence farm, private property and homesteading are the protection against these globalists who have no right to the heritage of the citizens of the United States. Period.

Note, our founders had no such allusions as to hold power and control after, PLEDGING THEIR LIVES AND FORTUNES, to the independence of this country. They gave the citizens of this country the opportunity for SELF GOVERNANCE, yet, as time has proven for thousands of years, and Lenin so accurately alluded, useless idiots are willing to give it all away to actual useless pseudo intellictual, and EVIL putzes!!!!

If the elitists who flew in on 150 or so private jets are sincere and wish to garner credibility, they should, in good faith, all donate 90% of their wealth to charity to help those causes they advocate for.

Klaus Schwab wrote a book called COVID-19: The Great Reset. He made a comment: “If no one power can enforce order, our world will suffer from a (“Global Order Deficit”). The man is crazy! There was also a secret meeting a year before the pandemic. Many leaders had a scripted act out of the virus. There is a whole video out on it called “The Plandemic”

Donald Trump s first Presidential campaign rally in Phoenix. Donald Trump held his first campaign rally, since announcing his Republican candidacy for President, at the Phoenix Convention Center. The event was hosted by the Maricopa County Republican Party. Media outlets from all over the country converged in Phoenix to cover this event. Previously, Mr. Trump created a media firestorm with his comments about illegal immigration during his candidacy announcement. Thousands filled the north ballroom of the convention center to see Trump and hear him speak. The event was scheduled to be held at the Arizona Biltmore, but the requests for tickets were so great the event had to be moved to the larger venue. Opponents held a peaceful protest outside the center. Trump s slogan is Make America Great Again.
