Since founding the World Economic Forum (WEF) in 1971, Klaus Schwab has grown his organization into arguably the most powerful entity in on the planet.
Yet most of the world’s population has never even heard of Schwab or the WEF, despite the group’s influence over global nations’ elected leaders.
Schwab, the WEF’s founder and sole chairman, is the original international man of mystery.
Basic information is available — “He was born in Ravensburg, Germany in 1938 …” — but almost nothing about the man behind the facts.
In his Leftist book titled Davos Man: How Billionaires Devoured the World, New York Times journalist Peter S. Goodman offers an insider’s perspective on the doings of the rich and famous at the WEF’s annual conference at Davos, Switzerland.
Goodman has attended the event himself for the better part of a decade.
And yet, in a book that is meant to be an exposé on Schwab and his WEF, Goodman tells us little about Schwab beyond anecdotes:
“Schwab has frequently told his colleagues that he anticipates receiving a Nobel Peace Prize…. Like the people he gathers annually in the Alps, Schwab is an exemplar of the force of pious words as prophylactic against the consequences of unsavory deeds.”
And criticisms are mostly petty in nature:
“When a Forum employee who was late for a meeting once pulled into Schwab’s spot in the parking lot, aware that the boss was overseas, he caught wind of it, and insisted that she be fired …”
It’s not that these stories are meaningless but Goodman’s central criticism is one of elitism and hypocrisy, and these illustrate his thesis.
But as far as exposé material goes, it’s pretty thin.
When it comes to biography, Schwab is like a cardboard cutout: the outline of a man is there, but an enormous hole remains.
Even so, all of this tells us something important about Schwab: his biography appears to be carefully guarded by an army of monitors.
Consider the WEF’s “About Klaus Schwab” webpage.
It merely lists degrees, honors, books, and so on.
Wikipedia, which loves to indulge rumor and speculation of every kind, is rather mum on Schwab.
George Floyd more than doubles Schwab at 3,100 words while the fictional Mr. Bean gets 6,400.
Wikipedia is a reflection of public interest rather than public importance.
In that sense, it’s more like Yelp than Encyclopedia Britannica.
Still, for a man who regularly meets with heads of state and expects to be treated like one, this is more than a little curious.
Schwab, it seems, has managed to do what almost every drunk spring breaker has tried to do but couldn’t: scrub something negative about themselves from the Internet.
Perhaps rubbing elbows with executives in Big Tech has its advantages.
Most of what Google prioritizes in search results on the octogenarian is glowing.
Negative press about Schwab and his agenda is often swept away by his allies in Big Tech and the media and labeled “conspiracy theories.”
BBC seized upon these “conspiracies” as an opportunity to publish this bizarre defense of Schwab and his “Great Reset” agenda.
In their telling of it, it’s all a rather benign attempt to create a better world.
Nothing to see here, people.
The BBC attempted to characterize all opposition to the globalist agenda as “dangerous conspiracy theories” that are linked to the MAGA crowd:
“Believers spin dark tales about an authoritarian socialist world government run by powerful capitalists and politicians—a secret cabal that is broadcasting its plan around the world….
“In the hands of a diverse group of online activists, the Great Reset has been transformed from a call to encourage people to think about a sustainable future, to a sinister plot against humanity.”
Either the BBC has never read Schwab, heard Schwab, or they are in on the plot against humanity.
“To achieve a better outcome [in the post-pandemic era], the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.
“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed.
“In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”
If your neighbor said this, you’d write him off as a whackjob.
But according to The Hill, the Biden administration has expressed “devotion” to Schwab’s plan.
This is about more than putting paper and plastic in the right waste bin.
It’s nothing less than a total global overhaul.
In an academic paper that inspires the goals of the WEF, apocalyptic warnings of every type emerge, global overpopulation most of all.
The writers say it will be necessary for leaders to make “appalling” decisions in the future.
Klaus Schwab is confident he and the elitist members of his World Economic Forum are the people for that job.
