World Economic Fuck'em
Nothing more than an unelected globalist government slowly emerging behind the curtains, eager to abscond with your rights and tell you how to live. Really...nothing to see here.
Among the many wretched, slimy and odious things that are increasingly giving me the creeps as the sands of my life’s hourglass continue to fall is the World Economic Forum: a collective of self-righteous global elites handing down virtues, values, lessons, lectures and political initiatives to us peons out here in the rest of the world.
The “Forum” is increasingly starting to resemble a globalist government, stocked with globally unelected turbo-douchebags, who have been assembling quietly in the background while no one has noticed.
One minute you’ve never heard of them - did you know the WEF has been around for about 5 decades? - the next, the “Forum” is harboring incredible influence, mostly with “useful” bureaucratic idiots on the left who are happy to take their cues on how to napalm individual rights for betterment of advancing their agendas from anyone who will help, regardless of their motivation.
That’s right: gone are the days of joking about The Great Reset, owning nothing and liking it and shifting to a diet of mealworms and crickets.
I’ve arrived at a point past that - a point of being sickened by watching people that in no way, shape or form represent me or the people in my life, yammer on about what my future will or won’t look like and what things I stand for are “right” or “wrong”.
It’s right in the WEF’s mission statement:
The World Economic Forum is an independent international organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.
The truth is no matter how much each narcissistic and likely psychotic guest would love to speak on behalf of millions, or even billions of people, they simply don’t.
I don’t expect these people to understand the consequences of painting with a broad brush, nor do I think they care about them. Take the Covid vaccines as an example. Isn’t the idea of jabbing every single person on Earth, regardless of age, health status and lifestyle (lest we forget whether or not they consent to it) wildly reckless?
Of course it is. But it doesn’t matter - because someone wanted it to be done…and, with that, it was put into action.
Wild, right? This unilateral implementation of mandates during Covid, regardless of what the individual may want for themselves and their families, was authoritarian catnip to the dingleberries that assemble at the World Economic Forum every year. I’m certain it has enabled many participants to think: we did it with vaccines - we cut them off from travel, we put their jobs and their livelihoods on the line and we even arrested and jailed them - now we can do it with anything else.
I don’t need to be in Davos this week to understand how little I have in common with the people of the World Economic Forum. I know this because I was recently in Washington DC during the International Monetary Fund’s most recent
circle jerk world conference.
Anybody that thinks that these are gatherings of people who live like them and represent them are sorely mistaken: I’ve never seen so many Rolexes, Bentleys, hundred thousand dollar outfits and, most importantly, armed security, as I saw within the 10 square block radius of the IMF that week.
It was a festival of global “ambassadors” that collectively looked like an amalgam of every corrupt Bond villain you’ve ever seen.
With that in mind, let’s have a look at what high quality ideas the Forum…has put forth this year to “shape global, regional and industry agendas”.
Everybody knows that fear is the best way to get people to listen up and do what you say (see: vaccinations, Covid, Fauci et. al pgs. 1-∞). With that being said, the Forum led off with some lighthearted banter, including the proclamation that “we are now facing…mass extinction” and “humanity’s future is at risk.”
Well holy fuck - why didn’t you say so? Man, I better listen up to the WEF’s prescription for exactly how to fix this, because “mass extinction” is nowhere on my 2023 day planner…plus I have a dentist appointment in several weeks that I need to make.
One man that definitely did get the “fear” memo - and judging by his temperament also had cattle prods stuck up his ass and turned onto their highest voltage setting - was Al Gore.
The man who incorrectly predicted the Artic would be completely ice-free by now took his time at the WEF to do his best Keith Olbermann impression by yelling at the top of his lungs and panting for breath about social causes, like climate change.
Al also politely reminded us that we are not obeying quick enough for his liking:
“We have to act! So in answer to your question I would say we have to have a sense of urgency much greater than we have yet had…and we need have had…and we need to make some changes!”
"We’re still putting 162 million tons [of greenhouse gas] into it every single day and the accumulated amount is now trapping as much extra heat as would be released by 600,000 Hiroshima-class atomic bombs exploding every single day on the earth,” he continued. "That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs, and sucking the moisture out of the land, and creating the droughts, and melting the ice and raising the sea level, and causing these waves of climate refugees!"
Holy fuck..rain bombs?! Why didn’t you say so? Man, I better listen up to the WEF’s prescription for exactly how to fix this, too.

Meanwhile sitting next to Al and on the receiving end of his spittle while he was screaming was Colombian President Gustavo Francisco Petro Urrego.
Gusto dug deep into the complex web of his mind to contribute the 4D-chess-like suggestion that capitalism as it stands today is going to irrevocably doom humanity because it created climate change.
Fuck again. Can’t we do anything right?
Ergo, his nuanced solution is to take away capitalism completely and, poof, there goes the global warming problem with it. Here’s his rock solid logic:
"[We] talk about policy and politically correct discourses when we know that the statistics mean that we are reaching a point of no return?" he said. "The capitalism that we know nowadays has a driving force and logic, and that is to increase our profits in such a way, and that’s how we talk about history to regulate everything without political or social boundaries. That’s the one we have. This has resulted in some sort of global anarchy."
"We have to put an end to this if we wish to live in our planet. Can our capitalism do this? Based on the current data, we won’t be able to do so. Therefore, perhaps we should do the following reflection: If capitalism is unable to do so either humanity will die with it, or humanity will overcome capitalism so that we can live in our planet."
And then of course, over on the Vans Dorked Tour side stage was a panel called “The Clear and Present Danger of Disinformation”, ironically run by a recently fired journalist whose show, also ironically called Reliable Sources was, also also ironically kicked off cable television for what I’m guessing was a lethal combination of getting almost everything wrong and sucking ass in general.
That journalist, Brian Stelter, interviewed European Commission VP Věra Jourová, who I guarantee you’ve never heard of before reading her name today. But that isn’t going to stop her from making the case for telling you that your free speech should not only be taken from you, but also turned into a criminal offense when used to state unpopular opinions.
She told disinformation-hall-monitor Stelter: "We need the people who understand the language and the case law in the country because what qualifies as hate speech -- illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S…I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law."
Pay special attention the burning look of genuine concern on Stelter’s face.
And this isn’t new, but last year the theme was the same - “recalibrating” what you can and can’t say. Of course, “approved” speech guidelines will be handed down not by God and not from your country or state’s constitution - but from a dozen Marxists, eager to tow the globalist initiative’s line in any way they can. After all, they’re God now. They’re the constitution now.
On a forthcoming podcast with Chris DeMuth, Jr., I raise the idea that, regardless of your ideology or politics, people in general are getting sick of being involuntarily deputized to participate in social causes, no matter what they may be.
Just because I work for a certain corporation, use certain products, or shop at certain stores does not mean that I align myself with the politics and ideologies of those people, places and things – end of story. This is why I find it offensive when I walk into a Whole Foods and see a sign that says some bullshit like “Hate Has No Home Here” hung up over the entrance where everyone walks in.
I’m socially liberal and I want people to live their lives however they would like without infringing on the rights of others. I don’t need a sign at a grocery store to tell me that. In fact, it’s demeaning and insulting.
Along the same lines, I’m a citizen of the world - but I don’t need a world forum to speak for me or involuntarily deputize me in whatever ideological or social justice cause they deem important. What’s best for one person isn’t necessarily what’s best for the next, and the arrogance of a “select group of human beings” thinking they can speak and act for everyone under the manufactured guise of “saving the planet” and doing what’s best for everyone tells you everything you need to know about these sociopaths.
But don’t tell John Kerry that - he’s almost anointed himself as an extraterrestrial deity. Here he is sounding like a card-carrying member of L. Ron Hubbard’s Sea Org.
And finally, you all know this already, but the hypocrisy is blinding.
The same people railing about climate change flew there in private jets. When they get home, they drive EVs stocked with battery metals mined by children in Africa. They wear shoes, shirts and pants made in sweatshops. They use iPhones made by workers in China undergoing horrific working conditions. They use petroleum products every day. They rail about inequality but support removing individual rights, traceable digital currencies, social credit scores and a central banking system that systematically widens the inequality gap.
Yes, the same people that claim to work for the every day Earthling’s better existence live in social tiers that you, I and our friends will never be a part of and would never want to be a part of.
Because while we may use those same iPhones and that same petroleum, we don’t stand in the meadow and spray on about how virtuous we are. We try to do the things we know to be right in our hearts, and we know we’re doing the best we can with what we have. That’s enough fulfillment for many of us. We don’t need to anoint ourselves.
In the end, what does that mean? It means if the World Economic Forum is really looking for new, novel and fresh ideas that’ll help out the everyday citizen of Earth - maybe they should try simply leaving us the fuck alone.
Just one correction to make in an otherwise excellent missive.
You called Brian Stelter a “journalist”.
Am I the only one who finds themselves thinking that if a tactical nuke went off in Davos, the world may be a better place￼🤷♂️🤞
