They hope that we will not notice the wolf under the sheep's clothing
Important - this post was updated with an example of future "wellbeing realism art painting".

When I don't have to buy three (not cheap-ass!) coffee makers in 5 years because of planned obsolescence, absent regulations and sub par manufacturing, then maybe I would consider some of these utopian ideals. Until then, they can fix what they broke. My parents had the same appliances in their house from when they built it 3 weeks before I was born. From the washing machine to the blender, that shit was built to last. She didn't replace almost anything until I was in my thirties.
They're worried about resource depletion all right, but the word "resource" is just a euphemism for oil. Our whole precious technological society runs on oil energy. There is no substitute for oil. TPTB are very aware of this, and also the uncomfortable fact that over half of available oil has already been produced (burned, converted to plastics, pharmaceuticals, etc.). They want to survive, and they want to maintain their own access to a 20th century-style energy rich life (vacations in the Bahamas whenever they feel like it), but they also know that, at current rates of consumption, the whole edifice will collapse sometime soon. One way or another there will be a lot fewer people on earth at the end of the century. I'm guessing they want to manage the die-off in order to maximize their own survivorship, and at the same time preserve their ideology.
They left out Norway and Denmark. Gee, I wonder why? Could it be that MAYBE because both countries clearly see the distinction of what they both stand for and what the WEF stands for, and are not "joining" the WEF? I dunno. If so, just more proof so much in life is a matter of distinction..
The term "giant leap" is not a terrific one.
It immediately took me to Mao's "great leap forward" that resulted in, perhaps, starvation and the deaths of perhaps 25 million people (middle estimate).
Mindfulness... seems to be a thing...
Ooooh it's too difficult - I can't stand this ... mummy... make it go away... I want easy....
Well son... you need to go to the mindfulness session .. the exotic lady will make the healing bowl sing ... close your eyes... and all the difficult will go away....
And if that does not work take Zoloft...
And if that does not work take Fentanyl - Extra.
Heaven forbid you have to deal with the difficult... we don't want you stressing.
Wow! Thanks for this excellent article exposing communism for what it is
You subtitled this excellent article as "They hope that we will not notice the wolf under the sheep's clothing". No Igor, the powers that be aren't window-dressing as sheep - they're portraying themselves as good shepherds. So, pray tell, just who's going to save you, not from the wolf, but from the ravenous shepherd?
Though Marx's economic analysis was largely accurate, his disrespect for the family unit harkens back to Plato's "Republic", which is extremely elitist and disrespectful of groups not so privileged. Just check out the World Socialist Website. At some point in the future expect global anarchy on unprecedented scale, worse than the French Revolution: Then a clamor for security and order at high cost to the human soul and autonomy.
This is insanity, but they’re marching forward with these disordered plans, aren’t they? It seems leaders in the various nations are either too daft to detect the insanity of this, or they DO understand it and support it wholeheartedly!
I went to Panera for the first time in awhile and they have green forks next to some items now. These are items with a “low carbon footprint”. What a joke! I’m going to have to stop giving my money to them (not that their food is good anymore).
There is a famous quote from Alexander Solzhenitsyn. It said something like “what if every time an operative left their house they had to worry about being killed by a freedom fighter?“ Essentially he was saying you have to have the will to resist, even if it looks like you are facing overwhelming odds.
How many tens of millions of guns do Americans own? how many gun owners will passively give them up?
I love the "newly popular" Nature worship - bwahahaha! I wonder what Indigenous peoples arround the world whose lands have been and are being stripped from them and everything razed to the ground for the New World Odor - or the 'best' lands kept for elites and the rest of us forced to live in 'smart' cities, think of this ridiculous article and the 'newly popular' idea of Nature worship or living in harmony with it! O.M.G!!! Again I say - it's time for guerilla art. There is SO MUCH good material in this article for satire - we must not miss this opportunity. And... it's scary as hell to think that people are under such mass psychosis to see this as a GOOD thing and going along with the genocide and slavery. That sickening art - yes, I recognize it. they did this same bs in the 30s after that depression stripped away the middle class. They did it again in the McCarthy era, in Soviet Union during Bolshevik revolution and beyond... and the art is ugly, insulting, ridiculous, so syrupy it hurts my teeth - and a LIE.
I was in Kalispell, MT for the past 5 days. I peered into the daily paper to see what was going on there. There was an article about the increase in apartment construction, but how the increase would not help "ALL."
I see this Marxist crap everywhere now that my eyes are open to it. Thanks in large, part, to you and James Lindsey.
There is nothing at all "Marxist" about the WEF, nor is it correct to use 'marxism' as a synonym for 'totalitarianism'. Marx was critical of concentrated wealth, especially in the form of private capital, as embodied by the WEF. The goal has always been democratic control of the means of production, including distribution of the surplus (a.k.a. profits), BY WORKERS. Corporate totalitarianism is pretty much the exact opposite.
Also, please reconsider the inaccurate association of "equality of outcome" with a Marxist critique of capitalism. This is a disingenuous straw man used by capitalist apologists to distract from massive wealth inequality that results from the unethical theft of labor from the working class—as perpetuated by members of the WEF.
To be clear, I agree that the WEF represents a self-serving threat to the future of humanity; just taking issue with the framing of the critique. I'd be surprised if you could find a Marxist with anything nice to say about the WEF. If anything, we need to cultivate solidarity across political lines—we have the numbers!
