Who the hell is Klaus Martin Schwab, the guy who claims to be holding the keys to the future of the world?
Claiming the world is ready for what he calls the Great Reset, he had the World Economic Forum, the strange outfit that he had founded (together with his wife Hilde) decades ago, sell all of its stocks and bonds. Not only that, the Forum did so ahead of everyone else.
Just what did he know that most of the rest of the world had not been aware of?
A curious look
Available data show Klaus Martin Schwab’s curriculum vitae in a rather admirable light: a doctorate in economics (summa cum laude, comparable with honours) from Switzerland’s ancient University of Fribourg, an engineering doctorate from ETH Zürich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology), and, to make him look even more rounded, a Master of Public Administration from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
Of course, an honourary professorship at the China Foreign Affairs University may stain the picture somewhat in some people’s eyes, but that, to Schwab and his coterie, matters not.
Many of his admirers think Schwab wrote the two of the bibles of world-changing revolutions, The Fourth Industrial Revolution (2016) and Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution (2018). Alas, not really: a World Economic Forum employee named Nicholas Davis wrote them both.
A busy beaver
More often than not, people have issues with beavers’ engineering projects. Here, they flood a field, there, they make a river impassable.
A headache, that’s what they are.
Compare Klaus Schwab’s activities with those of the beaver population around the world. The native of the German Upper Swabia city of Ravensburg has been all over the world, creating all kinds of what he calls dynamic global communities that consist of exceptional people (they must be under 40) with the vision, courage and influence to drive positive change in the world (his own literature words).
The age restriction is important: younger people are more susceptible to cheap sloganeering.
The impact of Ravensburg’s annual festival, Rutenfest (literally: birch whip celebration) must have made a huge impact on Klaus Schwab’s thinking.
The same year he started with the World Economic Forum in 1971, he published what he views as one of his scientific masterpieces: Modern Enterprise Management in Mechanical Engineering (Moderne Unternehmensführung im Maschinenbau). Management of a modern enterprise, Schwab wrote, must serve not only its shareholders but all of its stakeholders (die Interessenten), too. Otherwise, it won’t achieve long-term growth and prosperity.
Of course, the stakeholders were defined rather vaguely, but that’s not the point. The point is that Schwab’s argument leads nowhere but to socialism (in either of its shapes, such as national socialism, social democracy or communism).
Schwab claims that the World Economic Forum exists as a driver for reconciliation efforts in different parts of the world, whatever that is supposed to mean. According to him, the world needs a catalyst of numerous collaborations and international initiatives.
So, this is the guy who claims that the world needs what he calls a Great Reset.
That he himself sits on various business companies’ boards (collecting fees from each and every one of them) helps his private bank account but, also, his untiring efforts to re-shape the world. He used to sit on the infamous Bilderberg Group’s steering committee, too: that’s the group that was formed after 1945, with its stated goal to help enhance the dialogue between Europe and North America. Its objectives would develop into outright globalization (under one government, potentially).
Inquisitive minds need to know
As mentioned, the World Economic Forum sold all its stocks and bonds. What shocked many was that it did so ahead of everyone else.
As Armstrong Economics pointed out, Schwab has exploited the so-called Covid-19 virus within weeks of its appearance, using it as a springboard to launch his vision for the Great Reset.
Armstrong Economics is a serious organization of economists who know how to ask the right questions, and asking them.
Armstrong Economics describes it as a “highly likely man-made virus” and adds that it was “also highly likely to have been leaked in China deliberately by another group with a personal agenda involving climate change.”
The result, in a summary: world economy shut down, the world oil reserves increased by three years, over 300 million jobs destroyed as collateral damage.
Armstrong Economics compares the fear tactics used now to gain power to what the Nazis (and one would add: Communists) used to do with so much success.
The outcome: world’s population reduced to sheep being led to slaughter.
Schwab revealed his intentions in his new book, Covid-19: The Great Reset.
Obviously, he doesn’t plan to earn much on royalties: this piece of pure propaganda dirt is available for free online.
It is not known how much did Klaus Schwab learn about he history of economy.
It seems not much.
Herewith a reminder of some relevant events: it took 26 years to get over the effects of what used to be known the Great Depression of the 19th century.
Historians would later rename it Long Depression, after the 1929 crash developed into a new Great Depression.
Historians say that introduction of railroads would wreak havoc on the basic structure of transportation, displacing jobs involving horses and carts. That, they deduce, was the main cause of the Long Depression.
The origin of the Great Depression of the 20th century is somewhat more involved.
Historians claim that it was the collapse in agriculture that would help cause it.
Something to it: agriculture had employed about 40 per cent of the workforce at the turn of the 20th century. Combustion engine that would lead to tractors helped cut the need for manual labour. Besides, the natural disaster that would become known as Dust Bowl increased unemployment to about one-quarter of available workforce.
In addition, U.S. government took to micromanaging the country’s economy during the First World War, and it had terrible difficulties leaving it well enough alone (frankly speaking, it never quite succeeded: see FDR’s New Deal and the quick emergence of the all-encompassing atmosphere of entitlement that has shockingly survived to this day).
Sadly, it had to take the Second World War to restore the economy. As Armstrong Economics indicates, the war helped absorb the excess agricultural labour, forcing many former farm hands to become qualified.
Schwab hopes people don’t know how to think independently. He ignores evidence proves all this talk about man-made climate change is pure nonsense.
The only question that remains is: is he that megalomaniacal as to become criminal all by himself, or is he dancing to somebody else’s tune?
And, if the latter holds, to whose tune?
