It’s time for governments around the world to come together and tackle global problems like climate change, trade, and economic crises unhindered and without delay. This was reiterated once again last week by Klaus Schwab, founder and president of the World Economic Forum (WEF), during his keynote address at the opening of the World Government Summit in Dubai (March 29-30, 2022).
According to Schwab, everything in the world will only work better if there is cooperation between governments at multiple levels. In fact, the founder of the WEF stated that the “fourth industrial revolution” has now arrived, and that it promises to be an irreversible process.
“The impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution accelerates global change much more fully and rapidly than previous industrial revolutions,” Schwab argues. “Despite all the challenges, we must uphold the responsibility we have to the next generation through collaborations at the national and global level.”
One of the challenges is overcoming the “damage caused to our economies and societies by COVID-19,” but also at stake are the “repercussions of a dangerous clash between major global powers,” the WEF founder adds.
The mantra of climate change
The coming epochal changes will involve food, energy and all other kinds of resources. “In times of crisis, the role of governments is more important and more relevant than ever,” the globalist leader stressed. The collaboration of governments is then all the more necessary in the challenge posed by “climate change”.
Schwab is famous among those who welcomed the COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity to engineer a “new normal.” Right at the height of the pandemic, the founder of the WEF had in fact printed The Great Reset, a manifesto of his program.
“Many of us are wondering when things will get back to normal. In summary, the answer is never. Nothing will ever return to the ‘wrong’ sense of normalcy that prevailed before the crisis, because the coronavirus pandemic marks a fundamental turning point in our global trajectory,” Schwab writes in that famous book. But what the “new normal” consists of always remains a vague concept. The insistence on climate change and the role of governments, however, does not bode well at all: because it means more control of and over the population.
