Herr Doom's New World Order
Another brilliant piece. Superb comparison as to the guise of “Stakeholder interests” with M.I.A’s censorship. It is deeply concerning how structural changes in power (as a means to solve issues which are described using hyperbole) are deployed to shift from freedom to authoritarianism, i.e. the need to solve a ‘crisis’. Is the individual now redundant or seen as a mere tool? Adam.
Unfortunately here in Australia our bureaucrats will roll out and use as a blueprint such suggestions by these so called elites who dress the impending surveillance style authoritarian measures as being for the good of all. Our current PM is already virtue signalling and globe trotting on those very issues Schwab puts forth. Luckily there are many here awake and pushing back. Great read!!
This was a great read--hit the trifecta of thorough, cogent, and pithy. Who knew it could be fun to read about Schwab and his schemes?
Just FYI, in the state of Texas a lawsuit against ESG is currently underway. Half of US states are suing to halt a Biden administration rule change that allows pension funds for government workers to be invested according to ESG ratings rather than financial return. We can hope and pray that a legal victory on a scale this big would deal a real blow to the ESG racket, at least in the U.S..
Did you mention that the WEF partnered with the UN in 2019 for implementation the 17 SDGS of the UN? Welcome to our micro-managed planet, if these loonies have their way. Major narcissists with god complexes.
This is a disconcerting but fascinating read. It's too tempting to plant your head in the sand and not be on watch against people and ideaologies like these. I teach in a university setting and I see much of this type of indoctrinal mindset in my colleagues. I try to be objective and discerning and not throw the baby out with the bathwater- that is to say, I try to keep what is valuable about progressive thinking and ideology and toss the rest- but it is not easy. I appreciate your objectivity in assessing shareholder capitalism and some of its shortcomings AND benefits, but I agree that stakeholder capitalism is not only flawed but potentially quite dangerous.
Also, thanks for reading those books and distilling them down to some main points here, because I just don't know if I can stand to read the whole things.
Lucid, well-written. Thank you.
Regarding the subject matter, humanity has been here before. This "new" venture is as old as record-keeping. It will eventually self-destruct after killing many.
Spot on. How foolish people were to think of religion as just superstition and that society could function without it. It's as central to human social organization as emotions are to human behavior. In the old days you believed the sun orbited the earth, because the people you trust in positions of authority said it was so. Now you believe that the earth orbits the sun, because the people you trust in positions of authority say it is so. Science didn't change how we form beliefs, it just gave us a better method for detecting false doctrine, and one that only works on a narrow subset of doctrinal questions whose answers can be derived mathematically or experimentally. For everything else we're exactly where we always were.
Just curious, Herr Schwab, doesn't own a white cat by chance does he?
" … the perennial problem besetting rationalists: science does not tell us how to act." It does if we have a goal. But if you care about morality, you must know why you care. And that's your goal.
