No Privacy, No Property: The World in 2030 According to The WEF
The comments below are an edited and abridged synopsis of an article by Anthony P. Mueller
The World Economic Forum (WEF) was founded fifty years ago. It has gained prominence over the decades and has become one of the leading platforms of futuristic thinking and planning. As a meeting place of the global elite, the WEF brings together leaders in business and politics along with a few select intellectuals. The main thrust of the forum is global control. Free markets and individual choice do not stand as the top values, but state interventionism and collectivism do. Individual liberty and private property are to disappear by 2030, according to the projections and scenarios coming from the WEF.
Up for discussion: Eight predictions; beyond privacy and property; an ecological paradise; fabricating social consent; and who will be the rulers.
The WEF and its related institutions, together with a handful of governments and a few high-tech companies, want to lead the world into a new era without property or privacy. Values like individualism, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are at stake, to be repudiated in favour of collectivism and the imposition of a ‘common good’ that is defined by the self-proclaimed elite of technocrats. What is sold to the public as the promise of equality and ecological sustainability is in fact a brutal assault on human dignity and liberty. Instead of using the new technologies as an instrument of betterment, the Great Reset seeks to use the technological possibilities as a tool of enslavement. In this new world order, the state is the single owner of everything. It is left to our imagination to figure out who will program the algorithms that manage the distribution of the goods and services.
