Drugged and genetically
modified, their personalities are blunted and their bodies and minds
configured by a technocracy whose scientists design humans to
maximize their outputs for the benefit of the ruling classes.
With permanent strikers in the US, for instance, refusing to work in what the late anthropologist David Graeber eloquently called "bullshit jobs," the WEF's academics and researchers understand that they could lose their grip on power.
inequalities are widening as anti-democratic sentiments grow within
"democratic" societies, whose populations realise that they have no
control over their lives.
The businesses that fund and join WEF's Davos meetings recognize that real estate remains the physical basis on which profitable assets are constructed.
Under slogans like the
Great Reset, the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and
Build Back Better, WEF elites want to cement their
New World Order.
Like the hapless victims of Huxley's dystopia, tomorrow's society will be happily enslaved, at least in the minds of WEF planners.
Workspaces will blur the lines between personalization and professionalism, feelings of being cheated by the system will be reconceived as consuming less to help the environment, and the pains of reality will be soothed with immersion into joyous, incessant virtual reality like Facebook's new Meta concepts...
When the gravy train derails every decade or so, the public bails out the perpetrators.
Yet, the three main bases on which the intangible economy is constructed are tangible:
The new rulers of the world are the asset managers who hold the stocks, shares, bonds, and portfolios of the banks, hedge funds, insurers, pension companies, and real estate holdings.
Their fake wealth would not exist without the physical ownership of land.
Real estate is the skin of the balloon in which they blow the hot air of money markets.
What could possibly go
Commenting on the above, Christian Ulbrich, Global Chief Executive Officer and President of the real estate services company JLL, confirms:
On green-washing in response to public pressure, Ahmed Galal Ismail, Chief Executive Officer of the holding company Majid Al Futtaim Properties, says,
As we shall examine in more detail, artificial intelligence (AI) and the instantaneous advertising and automated services markets are exploding.
In so-called smart
homes, the wishes and intentions of the occupant will be sales
opportunities for programmed machines, from fridges to heating
systems, as the very biology of the tenant is tracked and analyzed
under the PR-friendly cover of public health monitoring.
AI could, for instance, offer to adjust the solar-controlled room temperature if in-home cameras sense that the occupant might be too hot or cold.
Through bastardized communitarianism designed by WEF to,
Existing examples, not yet fully authoritarian like the above, include the hub at Causeway, Boston, Massachusetts:
Another is Hong Kong's Taikoo Place:
Citing patents per head of population, the WEF notes that increased population density - i.e., big cities - is linked to increased creativity and productivity. But the people who do the hard work don't share in the patent wealth.
Taxpayers, for instance,
funded the vaccines that low-paid nurses administer, yet
Big Pharma reaps the rewards.
The solar-powered "smartly" ventilated takeaway/restaurant in Melton South is a prototype for other sites.
Through Podium, Australia is also pioneering the end-to-end digitization of real estate:
This will create a new blockchain for real estate markets.
In this part of the New World Order, constant labor is normalized.
Happy slaves must also be healthy slaves...
Design concepts include an,
There will be a "blend of social spaces with productivity enablers," such as colleagues who give unconscious prompts to others to work harder.
This will be achieved through the design of the building itself.
For instance, computers on which people work might be strategically placed near the coffee machine so that the idler sees their colleagues laboring and is prompted to return to work.
Exercise machines might be placed near the snack bar so that workers tempted by candy are also guilted into doing a few minutes' exercise before returning to their toil.
Over the last few decades, the phrase "new normal" became normal as politicians, intellectuals, and the media sought to brainwash us into believing that terrorism would make total surveillance and travel restrictions a new normal, as would limitations on freedom and growth caused by anthropogenic climate change.
WEF's message is confused.
Facebook is notorious for keeping people isolated in echo chambers, but the new Meta rebranding, as we shall see, will blend isolation and community in augmented, virtual reality (VR) settings.
Jab mandates for working people are part of the "next normal," and patents on the vaccines are of primary interest to the mega-rich.
But the WEF is less interested in ensuring the safety and efficacy of Covid vaccines and more concerned with bolstering "vaccine confidence."
Even though the jab
appears to be effective only in reducing hospitalizations, the WEF
was quick to ask how its thought leaders could work to promote
"trust" in big pharma's rushed products. 6
Sometimes, WEF founder and chairman Klaus Schwab speaks truth and horrifies those familiar with his words.
At other times, Schwab seems to say the opposite, acknowledging that what is erroneously called "capitalism" - which actually means state-backed monopoly corporatism - has damaged the younger generations, stagnated the middle classes, and fuelled the climate crisis.
In order to look good and
paint the global elite's WEF as some kind of progressive or "woke"
(as the right-wing say) face of "capitalism," Schwab points out that
which is wrong with the "capitalist" order.
In his introduction to
the WEF's report on youth, Schwab plays this game, writing things
many of us would agree with: that long-term planning is better than
short-term profit and that intergenerational parity is better than
growing inequality. 8
cultural leaders will shape the doctrines for those below
them through entertainment, education, media, and the workplace.
In reality, it is the same old monopoly corporatism in which ordinary people are the flotsam and jetsam in the plans of those higher than them in the social order.
For example, one Lab held in Luxembourg concluded that the WEF should decide what is or is not ethical consumption:
If, for instance, someone
decides not to buy the latest Apple gadget because 'child mining' in
Congo extracted the device's coltan, 'forced labor' in China created
the product, 'air miles' brought the item to the West, and 'tax
avoidance' enables the company to be a monopoly, a WEF messaging
campaign might green-wash and claim that the gadget's production was
ethical and its carbon footprint neutral.
The Davos Lab's Millennium Manifesto is jam-packed with empty verbiage such as,
In addition to trapping
working people in properties designed to enhance their productivity
and monetize their idiosyncrasies (like the AI temperature control
example above), the revolutionary potential of the exploited classes
as well as their dissatisfaction will, if the WEF planners get their
way, be quelled by the promotion of
virtual reality, in which humanity
is "reset" to begin anew with biological and digital enhancements.
After US President Donald Trump came to power (2017-21) and threatened the neoliberal agenda, ideological managers such as mainstream media, think tanks, and political unions, took action against what they call "fake news."
In most cases, so-called fact-checkers simply argue over interpretations of truth, which the fact-checkers then use to delegitimize real populism.
But who fact checks the fact-checkers...?
uncovered their connections to the political, corporate, and media
establishment. In this revolving door system, former mainstream
corporate media editors and journalists take up new roles as
self-professed fact-checkers whose targets are those opposed to the
In their evidence to US Congress after the 6 January Capitol insurrection, both Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey confirmed that,
All of the above serves to blandify social media content and constrain users to the boundaries of what is acceptable within neoliberal culture.
Anything too progressive
(e.g., the World Socialist Web Site) or regressive (e.g., Breitbart
News) is censored, pushing the entire user base of hundreds of
millions of people into a giant corporate-approved echo chamber
CNN, New York Times).
But people might also create and share real news and real information that does not fall within the bounds of accepted neoliberal ideology, such as questioning the efficacy of big pharma-produced vaccines or pointing out the serious problems with the corporate-political elite.
In making the world "digitally literate," the WEF employs doublethink:
Slaving for the ultra-rich in personally-tailored smart cities, the younger generations censored into the neoliberal sheep pen by social media will, according to the WEF model, augment their capacities with technology.
The transhumanist agenda is specifically harnessed for the older, infirm generations who have gone from being useless eaters - from the WEF perspective - to potential data points for augmentative technologies.
As part of the WEF propaganda campaign, the organization is preparing to,
For "older" people, which we assume means the over-60s, WEF suggests placing representatives in the design process, the reasoning being that over-60s tend to have different aesthetic tastes, practical preferences, and physical and cognitive requirements to young people.
The young are born into the new technological changes, and those changes become part of their environment. In contrast, the over-60s must adapt.
Pursuing profit, companies are using the WEF as a vehicle to help turn the over-60s into transhumanist augmentation technology consumers:
The WEF does not seek solutions for ending the collection and selling of personal data but rather for more transparency.
This way companies can
cheat consumers whilst being honest that they are cheating them. The
aim is to make consumers feel less angry because they appreciate the
They hope that older people will thus be more willing to have their information sold.
The WEF also wants to,
The clue is in the word "meaningful," suggesting that up until now, consent has not been meaningful.
One of the more insidious agendas is to,
Just as they seek to make
the younger generations "digitally literate," i.e., keep them in a
mental prison, WEF corporations aim to protect the elderly from
"deception," 13 but not the deceptions on which their
system is built.
If such a long-term grassroots revolution succeeded, it would not only hurt the profits of the owner-classes but threaten the system they spent so long developing.
Repackaging profit-driven agendas as some form of third position between capitalism and socialism is achieved, in part, by rhetorically emphasizing "corporate responsibility." 14
The WEF intellectuals are aware that young people tend to be driven more than old people by outrage. The right-wing dismisses these young, conscious activists as "social justice warriors."
Instead of encouraging people to change the system in their own image, WEF intellectuals want to make people feel like they have - without actually having - input into their conditions.
Another factor profitable to the corporate class is social impact bonds.
Historically, the underclasses - those below the working classes - were a financial negative. They claimed benefits, needed free healthcare, public housing, etc.
The working classes
labored, the middle classes paid the most relative taxes, and the
rich lived off the labor of the poor, profits generated by the
consuming middle classes, and hording through tax avoidance.
Under such systems, government cuts back on social welfare and relies instead on charities to keep offenders out of prison and reach homelessness reduction targets, etc.
This social impact bond system creates an incentive to have a permanent underclass and champion the alleged virtues of "charity" instead of systemic change that brings genuine inclusivity and democratic empowerment. 16
Gerbrand Haverkamp, Executive Director of the World Benchmarking Alliance, is quoted as saying:
This model incentivizes
the creation of a permanent underclass.
ENGINEERED 'LIFE' IN
Certain members who currently practice what they believe to be online "meme magic(k)" are also involved in the development of Facebook's VR world:
A near-billionaire developer and Trump supporter, Palmer Luckey, used social media to boost Trump's profile and deflate his rival Hillary Clinton in the run-up to the 2016 US presidential election.
Luckey made his fortune selling the Oculus VR headset to Zuckerberg.
Luckey's benefactor, a lobby called Nimble America, believed that "meme magic is real." The Millennial generation started to use images with text circulated online to boost their agendas and attack their enemies (memes).
One famous meme was Pepe the Frog, an innocent cartoon hijacked by racists and right-wingers (usually both) to signal their political allegiances.
Pepe, to give one of many examples, is drawn with light reflecting in both eyes in the shape of a Freemasonic dot-triangle.
Regardless of his involvement or lack of involvement in such practices, the executive director of Oculus, Jason Rubin, sent his 50-page report on the Metaverse to Zuckerberg.
Just as US military planners devised a "shock and awe" terror campaign to inflict on the Iraqi people in 2003, Rubin said that "shock and awe" tactics would condition the user to accept their new digital life in the Metaverse.
CNBC has seen leaked policy documents:
Chillingly (no pun intended), FB Oculus's Michael Abrash says:
The Guardian, which picked up the Abrash quote, conveniently omits a crucial detail about the novel: that the fictional online world on which the new scheme is based contains a mind virus that can infect users as they merely look at the screen.
Likening it to
Snow Crash, though providing no
evidence, certain individuals claim that the Pepe meme that evolved
into something else has, for many years, contained a hidden mind
Part of the Trump meme war and the fake news hysteria surrounding the President had the effect of making 'truth' a vague and flexible concept.
As the concept of truth becomes fuzzy, that which is real is set to become fuzzier.
WEF says of Meta:
The WEF hopes that once
we have been bombarded into the new system, we will all be
Huxleyan happy slaves in their Brave New World, playing with
intangible VR toys and mingling with avatars of our loved ones.
