The World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, opened on Wednesday with the theme “Resilient Dynamism” and an agenda that is the polar opposite. That theme, promoted by the WEF’s founder, Klaus Schwab, (pictured) began with an accurate assessment of how the push for global government is increasingly being resisted, and what he thinks the WEF should do about it:
As the world enters 2013, talk of participation in a “global community” is running high. But we continue to see signs — and, more important, behavior — that run counter to such claims.
There is a lengthy list of problems in the way of getting to a global government that, according to Schwab, must be resolved first:
[These] include the unresolved debt problems in the United States and Europe, the troubling global economic outlook, the turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, and the bulge in youth unemployment.
If global leaders, including the 2,500 or so attending the forum (each having paid $70,000 just to get in, and twice that to attend private meetings with the real movers and shakers), can just overcome the building resistance to their plans, all will be well. Said Schwab:
The economic crisis has created a more defensive, more self-centered, and at the level of states — more protectionist attitude.
Grand unifying visions are missing, and the pressure for separation, not union, continues to increase. This has stalled progress on many of the issues — including reducing carbon emissions, establishing global financial regulatory measures, and concluding the Doha Round of global trade talks, to name a few — that require global attention.
As the head cheerleader for globalism, Schwab encouraged his attendees to redouble their efforts to collectivize to solve these problems:
We must each take responsibility within our own sphere of action … acting as true global trustees.… This is the world we live in; we each have a role to play.
