"A New System" – Inside The Davos Summit 2023


WEF conference looks set to focus on what the globalist elite can
learn from the failures of their “pandemic” narrative...

The World Economic Forum’s annual meet-up kicks off today.
Politicians, corporate giants, “philanthropists” and all manner of
elite monstrosities gather for a weekend of telling each other how
smart they are and making the world generally worse.

But what’s on the menu this year?

Well, here are the five main items up for discussion, according to the
WEF’s website:

See if you can notice a pattern:

    Addressing the Current Energy and Food Crises in the context of a
New System for Energy, Climate and Nature

    Addressing the Current High Inflation, Low Growth, High Debt
Economy in the context of a New System for Investment, Trade and

    Addressing the Current Industry Headwinds in the context of a New
System for Harnessing Frontier Technologies for Private Sector
Innovation and Resilience

    Addressing the Current Social Vulnerabilities in the context of a
New System for Work, Skills and Care

    Addressing the Current Geopolitical Risks in the context of a New
System for Dialogue and Cooperation in a Multipolar World

Now, none of this is news. A “new system” for energy is a “green new
deal”, a “new system” for international cooperation is some type of
global governance, and a “new system” for investment and trade covers
a lot of topics, including digital currency.

Like I said, nothing new, but it’s always refreshing to see it in
print, with no effort to hide it.

It’s also interesting that they don’t use the phrases “new normal”,
“great reset” or “build back better” anywhere on the page, despite the
fact it’s obviously what they’re talking about.

A little victory for the alternate media, who have clearly raised
enough awareness that those phrases are now considered too tainted to

In fact, the WEF brotherhood is clearly concerned about losing control
of the narrative, as this article from a few days ago highlights:

    The world’s biggest problem solvers need to craft better narratives

It argues:

    People are more persuaded by the information presented within a
narrative because a good narrative helps to ease information
processing. Those trying to solve the world’s most pressing challenges
must take notice of this.

The whole article is essentially a very long-winded way of saying “we
need to tell better lies”.

    We must name the real antagonists: irresponsible politicians,
bought scientists and some companies failing to live up to the needs
of the transition to net-zero.

    We must also stop pretending that there is a debate over the facts
of climate change. A false balance is a phenomenon that occurs when a
news organization or other media outlet presents an issue as being the
subject of a debate, even when there is no actual debate or
disagreement among experts on the matter.

The author is talking about climate change, but his points about
shifting blame and shutting down debate apply across the board.

Look for a shift of narrative “villains” this year, as well as
increased emphasis on positivity and “unity”. Unity likely means
attempting to woo back some of the fringe-mainstream elements pushed
further to the alternative by the Covid narrative (as they did with

Elsewhere – and on a related note – there is likely to be talk of
censorship – or, sorry, “countering misinformation” – as discussed in
this WEF article from 6 days ago, headlined:

    Digital safety: Applying human rights in the digital world

The article details the “challenges” facing the WEF’s “Global
Coalition for Digital Safety” in their efforts to tackle…

    the likes of child sexual abuse and exploitation, terrorism and
hate speech, misinformation and content related to self-harm and

Notice how “hate speech” and “misinformation” are thrown in there with
the actual crimes? To quote Sesame Street, “one of these things is not
like the other”. But that’s no surprise in the age of “legal but

To be clear, these people do not care about any of those things. Not at all.

Their businesses exploit children, their state agencies fund
terrorism, and their media outlets spit out misinformation at 50 words
a minute.

They only really care about control. In this instance that means
controlling the internet – more specifically, controlling what you are
allowed to say and hear on the internet.

Another potential focus for discussion, highlighted in a couple of
places, will be a push for more direct action. What they seem to be
calling “tangible solutions”.

The head of Amnesty International – who will be in attendance – has
called for Davos attendees to focus on:

    tangible solutions that we already know work, rather than opting
to protect the existing global economic system at any cost.

Underlining that “now is the time for action” not “empty gestures”,
and simultaneously echoing the “new system” messaging.

The “tangible solutions” line is repeated in the “narratives” article
mentioned earlier, by financial consultancy giant Mercer on their page
about Davos, a WEF “expert panel”, and by Forbes in their article on
young leaders at Davos.

Of course “solutions-based thinking” has been corporate talk for
decades, and “now is the time for action” is a cliche which does the
rounds at every meeting, summit or conference.

Nobody in history has ever said “now is not the time for action, now
is the time for gestures”.

So, of course, it could be empty words designed to make the speakers
(and their meeting) feel important.

But it could be something else, perhaps a sign that the propaganda
stage of the “great reset” is over, and now we transition to the next
stage. Signalling a move away from passive manipulation and
psychology-driven control mechanisms and toward more direct

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Either way, you can broadly define the Davos agenda as four main themes:

    “A new system”: Reforming the global systems of politics and finance

    “controlling the narrative”: Telling more believable lies &
limiting public debate

    “countering misinformation”: Censorship, especially of the internet

    “tangible solutions”: Taking more direct action via enforcement and policy.

The Davos talking points, it seems, will be a retrospective focusing
on what they can learn from the shortcomings of their “pandemic”

One final thought, an (unconfirmed) story doing the rounds is both
hilarious and telling…if true:

Apparently, DAVOS attendees are deliberately seeking out unvaccinated
pilots. Make of that what you will.
