This Year’s World Economic Forum in Davos Is as Disturbing as You’d Expect – Opinion

It’s the time of year again when thousands of the world’s most powerful and wealthy people gather in Davos, Switzerland to plot world domination and generally say really disturbing things.

They whine about climate change, try to reduce your consumption of red meat and fly private jets in the air while they live lavish lifestyles. No other event on the planet shows the divide between the elites and normal people more, and this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos is no exception.

I’ll kick things off with globalism’s highest-ranking leader, Klaus Schwab, who runs the WEF.

The “future is being built by us,” Schwab proclaims to a bunch of people who have not been delegated the power to build the “future,” and certainly their vision of it is as dystopian as it is unworkable. They do not represent the entire world, as they are unelected Davos leaders. They are only representative of those who have voted for them. Certainly, the dictators in attendance and the corporate leaders have no right to “build” the future for everyone in the world without their consent.

Yet, here we are with the most arrogant, privileged people on earth once again trying to tell everyone else what to do, and to be sure, they don’t just use words. They are deliberately trying to destroy the system, as two speakers pointed out. They want you to feel pain.

What makes me so angry about this isn’t just that these mostly unelected mediocrities act as if they hold a special place in shaping world events and economies, but that they don’t care one bit for the suffering they cause in the meantime. Listen to them proclaim that the “pain” is worth it. It’s worth it for who? The wealthy have multiple yachts and their own private jets. Because it sure isn’t worth it to the mere normals who just want to be able to eat a hamburger and drive their car to work.

There’s something deeply wrong about a system that places global affairs in the hands of unelected elites who couldn’t care less about the harm they cause in their pursuits. It’s not surprising that these pursuits are often veiled in grandiose fantasies. We don’t need the WEF to save the planet. We don’t need its members to destroy the energy sector to remake it with renewables. We need these individuals to return to their countries, and to stop interfering in the daily lives of others. That is too much?
