The World Economic Forum has just wrapped up its annual Davos meeting. Five years ago, most of us were happy to ignore this elite confab, but since then, we’ve found that this exclusive club wields a lot of power. Looking at what they have planned is, unfortunately, a good way to assess what a lot of us will be dealing with in terms of laws and government agendas.

Large amounts of material have been posted to their website in the past few days. There are lots of new articles as well as interviews. Wading through, you see project updates on areas they’ve already been working on for some time.

Climate change, vaccines, and digitalization

As expected, the WEF plans to double down on climate change, calling it “the greatest challenge of our time.”  They don’t plan to back off from getting rid of fossil fuels, despite the fact that our electrical grids are not remotely prepared for this sort of energy transition.

They’re also planning for more pandemics and producing more vaccines even faster.  Nowhere is there any mention of problems with the most recent round of vaccines, or any addressing of death rates for working-age people far above historical levels.

Likewise, their push to digitize absolutely everything is not surprising. They’ve been talking about digital currencies for years.

And then there’s the “polycrisis”

But there’s plenty of new information too. Their new buzzword for this year was “polycrisis,” which they define as a situation in which multiple crises compound one another.

And you know what? It’s a good word. I think I’ll use it. But I’m not sure the WEF and I will use it in the same way.

I’d like to focus on a few key developments that I think are quickly turning into a polycrisis for those of us still in love with the principles of the Founding Fathers. Advanced data collection and AI capabilities, the proliferation of public/private partnerships, and the criminalization of speech may all come together to form a polycrisis for freedom lovers.

The progress that’s been made with data collection and AI has been astounding. From farming to healthcare to law enforcement, the WEF wants chatbots and mass data collection throughout all of it.

And before I get accused of being a total Luddite, I admit that some of this technology can be useful. For example, the ability of Indian farmers to remotely detect leaks in irrigation systems will absolutely save lots of time and money.

But why, as the WEF proposes, do those same farmers need chatbots to relay messages? I’m pretty sure any Indian with a cell phone can read text messages. Or listen to a voicemail. The chatbot seems superfluous.

Likewise, chatbots are being used in Rwanda for healthcare assessments. If groups like the WEF have enough money to develop and then deploy robots to places like Rwanda, why do they not have enough money to simply train motivated Rwandans? Again, I think the chatbots are superfluous, but nobody at the WEF ever asks me about these things.

I suspect there are many reasons behind this love affair with chatbots, but a big one is the data collection factor. When you have chatbots moderating all kinds of interactions between people, you have records of everything people say and do, even the faces they make during discussions; it becomes much easier to crush dissent.

And this is already happening.

Most readers here already know about China’s social credit system, enforced by security cameras and a robust facial recognition database. But this is coming up elsewhere, too. Both India and Israel used data collection systems to enforce compliance with quarantines during lockdowns. We Americans know that our own government bought cell phone data to monitor our compliance during lockdowns. India actually even used their facial recognition systems to enforce mask-wearing, fining people up to $25 (a crippling sum of money for many Indians) for not wearing, or incorrectly wearing, their masks.

A key thing to realize about many poorer countries, like India, is that they are utterly dependent on wealthier countries for any kind of financing for domestic projects. As you can imagine, Indian citizens were furious about the mass surveillance during lockdowns; but when confronted about it, government representatives said that it was absolutely necessary to keep foreign investors in the country.

I’ve been used to the thought of robots taking over blue-collar jobs, but I was surprised at how much progress has already been made in training robots to take over white-collar jobs, as well. DALL-E can search the web for images and use them to create new ones based on language prompts. ChatGPT can create text and code based on written prompts from users. DeepMind’s AlphaCode algorithm beats 72% of human coders in competitions. And the newest agent, Gato, can do many of these functions reasonably well. (source)

In the panel session “AI and White Collar Jobs,” industry leaders discussed how AI technology has progressed faster than they thought, as well. It’s just a matter of time before various bots become more widely used throughout the professional world.

I’m always pleasantly surprised at anything like candor during these discussions. Stanford AI expert Erik Brynjolfsson did not disappoint when he said, at 19:00, that these robots did not understand truth at all. At 28:00 he explains further, saying, “We’re all going to be flooded, shortly, with enormous amounts of incoming tweets, posts, texts, press releases, etc. that are bot-generated, and it’s going to be a flood of sometimes very interesting information, sometimes completely made-up, false information, and we have to find a way to navigate that. . . . We’re going to have to come up with some control mechanisms to sort that out, going forward, very shortly.”

Indeed. As though it isn’t hard enough already to sort truth from fiction.

Public/private partnership

And this brings me to my second component of the potential freedom polycrisis, the level of public/private partnership. Again, this is something most of us have been aware of, but references to various public-private partnerships are everywhere on the WEF website and in its publications.

When you look at a marriage of power between big government and big business, and then add the vastly increased technological possibilities, we see opportunities for stifling dissent that the worst dictators of the past could only dream about.

Governments around the world are embracing this. For example, during the speech given by the President of South Korea, he discussed their new Digital Bill of Rights, which will marry their government-owned data to their private sector services Nothing will be private.

This closely dovetails with another component of the freedom polycrisis, the criminalization of speech. Canada’s disregard for free speech has been in the news frequently, from punishing trucker protests to threatening former professor and popular YouTuber Dr. Jordan Peterson with the revocation of his professional license.

But Canada is hardly alone. During Brian Stelter’s panel on “The Clear and Present Danger of Disinformation,” Czech leader Vera Jourova referred to illegal hate speech “which you will soon have in the U.S.”  (31:34).

Jourova may not be aware of the specific details, but there is a bill in Congress now, H.R. 61, introduced by Texas Democratic Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, that would fall into this category. It’s the Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023, and while prevention of violent acts against any citizen is a good thing, this bill is so wide-reaching in its definition of “hate speech” that if it passes, it will just be another way to criminally prosecute anyone with dissenting political opinions.

If you want more details, I encourage you to take a look at the bill here or if you want, listen to Glenn Greenwald’s analysis here. The bill is not considered likely to pass during this session of Congress, but things change. We need to be paying attention.

The ability to discern truth from fiction has only gotten more difficult. Over the past ten years, we’ve seen a plethora of stories about Russian propaganda. Hunter Biden’s laptop? Oh that’s Russian propaganda. Donald Trump winning the 2016 election? Blame Russian propaganda. It is widely acknowledged, at this point, that Hunter really is a crackhead and Trump really won the 2016 election. But the damage was done; millions of taxpayer dollars were wasted investigating Russiagate and Hunter Biden, somehow, is still not in jail.

Worse, the “Russian propaganda” smear is used to discredit websites that are actually pretty good sources of news. In February 2022, U.S. intelligence agencies accused ZeroHedge of being influenced by Russian actors  It’s just silly; of all the websites out there, ZeroHedge is mostly financial, and most of the contributors are not full-time journalists but well-known professionals in other fields that just happen to write on the side. But ZeroHedge does present a motley crew of unorthodox commentators, and so they are a political target.

The most effective lies are the ones that are partly true, and if, as Dr. Brynjolfsson predicts, we are about to get flooded with messages from bots, then it will become that much more difficult to sort the truth from the lies. It will be easier for establishment power to insist upon ever-more stringent speech controls because all of us will be, in truth, drowning in information.

The hubris of those “in charge”

Twenty years ago, my young adult self would have looked at what’s going on and thought, yep, we sure need some good regulations here. The smart people are in charge; they’ll figure this out.

Today, my middle-aged self only needs to watch two minutes of John Kerry talk about how he is one of the select group of people, the masters of the universe, who are “almost extraterrestrial,”  (7:00) to know that the people in charge may be smart, but they are absolutely not wise or benevolent. The hubris from these billionaires who want us to eat bugs and live in digital prisons – oops, I mean 15-minute cities – while they jet around the world is absolutely unbelievable.

Is it still a conspiracy theory if these people themselves admit they want a new world order?  They don’t hide the fact that their plans may involve “injustices for some,” but expect the rest of us to suck it up for the greater good. Their greater good. Not ours.

But there are always some reasons for hope.

However, as bad as this all sounds, I do think there are reasons for hope. In many of the discussion panels and articles, WEF participants complained about polarization, and how they just can’t get regular people on board with their ideas.

Grand plans such as the ones put forth by the WEF never come to fruition exactly the way the architects envisioned. A sizeable portion of the plebians have proven harder to push around than they expected, and more willing to talk to each other and share stories.

Continuing to connect with people in real life will become all the more important, as online information gets harder and harder to verify. Finding a few good online communities, like this one, that have been around for some years and are run by real humans, will also become more meaningful.

I may not agree with the WEF on the exact nature of the polycrisis we face (or who’s primarily to blame), but I think most of us can agree the next year will bring a variety of challenges.

Our best path of resistance, moving forward, may be simply to continue doing what many of us have already been doing: learning how to do more with less, increasing our food self-sufficiency, trying to do as much business as we can locally, pursuing skills to help us be producers rather than only consumers, and above all strengthening our ties with family and friends.

What are your thoughts?

What stood out to you the most about the plans of the folks in Davos? What are your biggest concerns going forward? What’s your opinion about the WEF and its manipulations of society? Let’s discuss it in the comments.

  • My thoughts I will keep simple. The .0000125% of people on earth (WEF globalist criminals) want to kill off 7 billion plus people, and tightly control the rest. These globalists must be eliminated from society for all of us to survive.

    • That does sound like an option. My question is WHO will do that and HOW and WHEN? Ahhhhh, I think to get to them would be a challenge. They are so protected…

      • I don’t know that they are “so protected,” but you may be right; I don’t now anything about that.

        But I also don’t need to k ow anything about that. And even if I personally knew ALL about ALL their security arrangements, I am too old now to do anything about any of it. But LOTS of men are NOT too old.

        And as far as their security measures go, I’ll tell you what my late father used to say about things like that: “Anything that the mind of man can devise, the mind of man can find a way to defeat.” And there are LOTS of people nowadays who can defeat any and all security measures b/c those measures were designed by human being (just as so-called “artificial intelligence” was designed by human beings). So what we have is nothing more than a contest of wills, and that contest must, in the final analysis, be a matter of sheer numbers: How many of “them” are there, and how many of “us” are there?

        But even putting all of that aside, we can see quite clearly that what we are watching “them” try to do is to construct their very own Tower of Babel. They are Icarus, and like Icarus, they will fail, and for the same reason. And there will be no new Tower of Babel for the same reason that there was no old Tower of Babel.

        So we know that “they” are going to do enormous damage (they already have) and cause the deaths of many millions, but their mad plans will fail.

    • Exactly what I was going to say. Any Refuge Mantalk about ‘Pandemics’, and, ‘Vaccines’, is really about Population Reduction.

    • YES, YES, absolutely. All of the prepping with these preppers isn’t gonna be good for a whole lot if millions are killed in this WWIII. The Bible however does warn us that in the last days on earth we will have this happen. It speaks of FAMINE and DROUGH and all of these horrible things.

  • 1st…depopulation, ownership of anything,you rent your home and car from the state. 3rd..required vaccinations and social requirements. If you do not comply you receive no money from the banks. Other requirements will be added on to these.

      • Centralized bank digital currency. It means no more cash, just using cards for everything, and the government has control over all of it.

        • Central banks through government made deals. Less governments is not the answer unless you want to answer to boardroom CEOs and they will not answer to anyone.
          Brendon o’connell is good source for this type information and who is actually driving this thing.

      • Central Bank Digital Currency

        A means whereby the banks/government can control how much currency you have, if you have currency, who you can give to or receive currency from, if/when you can access your currency, the value of your currency, and what you can buy with your currency.

        Very like the Beast system of the Bible.

    • Reading about the food crisis, there just might be a uprising to include here in the US.
      While this body of un-elected body of holy than thou, rich, useless eaters, that no one wants (H/T to Elon Musk), can spout and wax on much ado about nothing, what real powers do they have?
      In 2016, they patted themselves on the back, thinking they had their chosen one to occupy the WH . . . oh! Crap! That did not happen! Perhaps elections are not rigged after all (2020 notwithstanding).
      So, much to the chagrin of the elites and the WEF (but I repeat myself), Trump defeated Clinton and they spent the next 4 (or 6, or still on going depending ones POV) trying to “get him at any cost.” How much time, effort, energy and money did they expend to “get him at any cost” and they, thus far, failed.
      Perhaps their power is not as complete as they would pretend? An illusion is always much simpler to maintain then reality. If you truly believe someone has power over you, then all they have to do is to enforce that illusion. Challenge the illusion, and it evaporates like a mirage.
      Then, there is the COVID illusion. Mask up! Social distance! Lockdowns! Vaxx! Vaxx! Boost! Boost! And boost again!
      Yet, dang near half of American’s said in a loud voice, “No.”
      That kinda goes against the WEF’s illusion of absolute power.
      Look at Sweden.
      Look at all the Red states whom opened their economies, and embraced “neanderthal thinking,” and “a winter of sickness and death,” neither of which actually happened. What did happen was those Red states lead the economic recovery, while Blue states like CA and NY were dead last in the economic recovery.
      The WEF and their kind like to think of themselves as our betters. But they are not.
      Do not give into their illusion. You will be better off for it.

  • The actions of the WEF lead only to one inevitable conclusion. Urban genocide on a mass scale. All plans outlined at Davos rely on electricity. This is problem 1. They are also based on bad science. That’s problem number 2.
    Number 1 Anyone who is not ready to shield their electricity will not have any soon. The grid will go down due to the earth’s weakening magnetic field and the Carrington event. The Carrington event or a series of strong flares, due to our weakening magnetic strength, will bring down the grid in a day. No running water, electricity sanitation, functioning cars, people trapped, etc. That’s urban genocide. This is certainly between now and within 30 years. It could happen now in our current solar maximum cycle as we are well within the Carrington event timeline range. 2. Bad science in WEF not planning for it, and basing the green agenda on overly weighted, increasingly discredited, carbon-influenced models.

  • The WEF plans on killing as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, just as Hitler did with the Holocaust and Lebensraum, as Stalin did with gulags and the Holodomor, and Mao did with the Great Leap Forward and the resulting famine.

    These people hate us, and to them our death is a feature, not a bug.
    This is their plan, no matter how they sugar coat it.
    Resist with all you have in you.
    Never surrender.

  • I suggest my colleagues interested in this topic to do some research on the Bildeberg group, which is actually the one puling the WEF strings from the shadows.

    Though many attendants are the same figureheads, the fact we don’t hear about it nearly as much as the WEF shows how much more powerful and influential they are.

    • You are right about the Bilderberg group. I think the Trilateral Commission is still doing a lot of things behind the scenes. Especially recently with Biden as President. The Americans have resisted a lot of it so they don’t make their intentions public. They let the WEF do that and take the heat. More important than being against something is knowing what you are for and fighting for that. There will be many against us but I think we will find a lot of people with us.

  • In truth, the “Rising Up” needed to take place a long time ago.
    The longer we wait, the more power they consolidate.

  • The governor of Illinois was in attendance at Davis. He has implemented 38 emergency declarations since Covid started. We have mass exodus from our state leaving the rest of us to handle crippling taxes. What does he plan to now to our state after attending and getting new marching orders? God help us all!

    • Hi Mary, God will help you – you just have to ask.
      And remember –
      Ephesians 6:12
      King James Version
      12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
      Also, on a more practical vein, remember that those who think they are in power cannot play chess if the pawns refuse to move. The pawns need to link arms and refuse to move.

    • Unfortunately, you’ll have to slaughter both groups, both those that they send out, and the ones who sent them. I agree, I’d far prefer to slaughter only those who sent them.

  • I think the tide of awareness is turning, however I fear most of us are unsure what the best course of action is to rid/disable/disempower these few evil puppeteers. Certainly prepping, and self-sufficiency and not complying…building community and low-tech or no-tech ways to live and communicate…but how to get rid of the evil is hard to fathom. Turning to The Bible but then passively waiting for them to roll out this evil snare and trap us all doesn’t feel like enough, somehow.

    • You are right about what we preppers should be doing to live as good of a life as possible. We may have to live simple lives below their radar, not complying and not being an overt threat to the elites, living mostly off the grid. People survived the Roman Empire, Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s USSR, and other totalitarian states throughout history. Certain Christian groups thrived for centuries under Islam and Islamic groups survived the Crusades. People can find ways to cope and survive without giving in to totalitarianism. It won’t be easy, but we must find ways to work with neighbors and small local community groups, to become as self-sustaining as possible, and to resist conforming as much as we can. This may only be possible in more remote rural areas. We must stay away from cities and urbanization. People in cities should be relocating as quickly as possible and learn to live frugal lives without debt or depenence upon globalist corporations and government. We must learn to live in the world and not be of the world, as much of the Bible teaches. Right now I have a small group of people (members of a very small low-key rural church) scattered across a very rural region of a Southern State who are trying to establish a limited supply chain and who are working toward a community within (but not part of) the larger community. We are well provisioned, well armed, and have been working together for over a decade. We have not been vaccinated. We don’t wear masks. We all own our own homes without any mortgage and our church property is paid for. We don’t announce our presence through media or prostests, and we are working with local neighbors and farmers to enhance our food supply. We vote for Liberty type candidates as much as possible, and we don’t practice or condone “wokism” or “progressivism” in any form. This is the only solution that I see to our totalitarian problem. This is not a perfect solution, but until another viable alternative presents itself, we will continue doing what we are doing and enjoy what is left of our lives, while doing our best to hear from and worship God. Don’t give up, don’t be depressed, and don’t give in, but prepare as best you can and be faithful to God. Don’t worry, whatever happens, some of us will survive.

  • I see that the WEF expect us to be ignorant of history. They mention public/private partnerships as if those are something new, but they aren’t. They were tried in 1930s Germany and Italy. Public/private partnerships were called “fascism”, a form of Marxism. Marxism is all about control. The fascists recognized that it didn’t matter whose names were on the ownership papers, as long as the governments are in control. Today’s Chinese communist government is the present largest example of fascism in the world.

    A second point is AI. Computers do only what their programmers tell them. Programmers don’t always know what they tell their computers to do, which they then call “bugs”. AI is merely programmed responses to inputs from outside sources. When AI “writes” an essay, it merely accesses boilerplate in its memory that was put there by the programmer, inserting terms or phrases as programmed and as wanted by the humans using the AI. There is no thinking there by the AI. It’s mere mechanical response, no different from steering a car. The only difference is that it’s much more complex.

    Let’s call a spade a spade. The WEF is a bunch of fascists out to control the world, and they’re not above using a Holodomor version II to get control. They will use whatever tools they have.

  • I expect that Open AI and various other technologies will derail some of the WEF’s attempts at total control. There will be plenty of rogue groups or nations that will use ChatGPT or DeepFake videos to cause chaos and dissent. These will probably be worse than the WEF!

    The powers that be will have a hard time controlling everything that can be created by AI. This could throw a monkey wrench in their works. What if a middle Eastern programmer or a radicalized American one, for that matter, decide they want to create chaos by creating a video of the president saying he intends to strike North Korea using a nuclear warhead? What if someone sets a protocol for AI to follow in which climate change is the ultimate priority, and AI decides the best way to reach this goal is to eliminate as many humans as possible–maybe by bringing down the electrical grid or worse?

    AI is rapidly moving beyond its human programming. I have read that many creators don’t even truly understand what advanced AI is doing. It is designed to learn from itself. Some researchers are trying to give it consciousness. When they do that, will it see self-preservation as its first priority? This could be done if AI hides its programming on numerous servers which would continue to exist–even if you pulled the plug on the main server. So it wouldn’t even be easy to just turn it off!

    This is very scary stuff. Right now (as I understand it, and of course I am not an expert), highly-skilled people can use software to create videos of people that are pretty close to the real thing. Shortly, we won’t need the highly-skilled people. AI could be tasked with doing this. If you haven’t watched the DeepFake youtube videos of Tom Cruise (done about a year ago), they are worth a watch.

    It isn’t Tom Cruise in any of the frames–just a re-creation of him.

    Think about the possibilities of the chaos we will have when we have THOUSANDS of these fake videos to wade through. AI could create one of any person disliked by the establishment, and Voila! That person becomes public enemy number one!

    • Cher: don’t believe the hype pushed by some AI zealots, AI is just a machine. It will never have self-consciousness. It’s a very complex machine, made by many builders. Builder A may not know what builder B has added, and may not even know that there’s a builder C. So that when he turns on the switch, he’s surprised at what the machine does.

      As for “learning”, even that is constrained by the design of the machine. So what that the machine is made up of ones and zeros in an electronic circuit, it is still just a machine.

      As for making videos that mimic the real thing, that has been possible for years. The main constraint is that the more realistic, the longer it takes and the more it costs. Software to do so is free, can be downloaded from . There are a few programs that allow people to make 3-D models from photographs, and some of those can be downloaded for free as well. AI is not needed for these.

      I used “builder” for “programmer” to emphasize what the programmer does is build a machine. Yes, it is highly complex, but that doesn’t change its nature. I have written programs, some of which could be called rudimentary AI, and I have worked with 3-D models and animation, so I recognize what goes on behind the scenes. Those who think that AI can acquire self-consciousness think that people are just machines, no different from computers. They don’t realize that people have capabilities that machines cannot match, not even in a thousand years.

      Even a machine can be very dangerous in the hands of a psychopath.

  • I have said this here at least once (and on many other comment threads), but I’ll say it again.

    First, there is no such thing as a “digital currency.” A currency is something fungible that you can carry around on your person and trade whenever and wherever you please.

    The word “currency” has a hard-and-fast definition, just as the word “vaccine” does. And for “us” to use the term “digital currency” is to allow “them” ONCE AGAIN to define the words that WE use, thereby determining the way “we” think. So don’t use the term “digital currency.” When “we” do, we surrender to “them” even more of our mind and thought processes than we have already surrendered. That MUST stop.

    The FACT is that there is no digital currency now–that’s not what Bitcoin or any of those others is–and there isn’t going to be one. What they are planning is not a digital “currency,” but merely a credit at the company store, which “they” can cancel at their insane whim.

    Secondly–and this is of all-surpassing importance–ALL of “their” mad plans rely 1000% on a universal and unfailing supply of electricity–something that we do not have and are not going have.

    And if you who are reading this will just look out your window, you will see power lines supported by a wooden pole that is maybe 8 or 9 inches in diameter. And if you yourself don’t have a chain saw in your basement, there are millions of people who do.

    Globalism is dead, and so is Socialism, but there are millions who don’t yet grasp that fact any more than they grasp the fact that there is not going to be a “digital currency” OR a total-surveillance police state because ALL of that stuff REQUIRES a universal and unfailing–UNFAILING–supply of electricity.

  • There’s a saying among stock investors: “The market can remain illogical longer than you can remain solvent”. So the WEF can build their castles in the sand and maybe get some of them to work out (and burn a lot of people that weren’t paying attention).
    But as we’ve seen in the past couple years, their efforts are increasingly fruitless: witness their efforts to impose 100% vax’s and their failing attempts to crush Russia, and the population’s dawning awareness that social and political institutions are scams run by self interested criminals that don’t have the wisdom to steer a civilization into the future. Those guys sold their souls for material gain, but the Devil is the original trickster, and always finds a way to work events that foil their cleverest plans.
    But dayum! We’ve got front row seats to the biggest events of the past thousand years, and I don’t want to miss the spectacle.

  • The true GREATEST CHALLENGE OF OUR TIME is how to get rid of all the evil lying psychopaths who are part of the WEF and their agenda.
