Keep Power and Control Out of the Hands of the WEF!

: Laura Hollis on

The World Economic Forum insect overlords have convened in Davos, Switzerland for their annual confab this week, and once again, their focus is "crisis."

Everything is a "crisis" for the WEF and their minions seeded throughout the world's governments and corporate leaders, and those crises are always "unprecedented." But this year, they're trying to foment even more global panic; they've declared 2023 to be the "year of the 'polycrisis.'" In other words, multiple crises at the same time. (Which is the same thing they've been saying for years, but with a new, scary epithet attached to it.)

Also consistent with their previous messaging is that those in power need much "more" to accomplish their goals. More power, more government and corporate control, and much more money. Former Secretary of State John Kerry gave a speech in Davos on Tuesday in which he warned that "saving the planet" will take "money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money."

Where is all this money going to come from? Why, from you, of course -- the average citizen -- from whom everything will be taken; not only your money but your car, your single-family home and yard, your food and your freedom. But it's fine, because we'll have utopia when the central planners are finished.

Everything about this reeks of fraud, deceit, massive miscalculation and manipulation. And we've seen this movie enough times before to be suspicious of everything we're being told.

First, the science is questionable. A basic tenet of the scientific method is that if your predictions don't happen, your hypotheses are flawed. The climate catastrophe Cassandras have been wrong for decades. In the 1960s, professor Paul Ehrlich, author of "The Population Bomb," predicted widespread starvation for most of humanity. Didn't happen. In the 1970s, the "experts" were predicting a new "ice age." Didn't happen. "Global cooling" became "global warming" and Al Gore, one of its most famous prophets, relied on computer models to predict that arctic ice would be melted by 2013. Didn't happen.

 

Second, science doesn't become "settled" just because scholars who challenge prevailing theories are silenced. Professor Michael Mann, another renowned expert in climate science, authored the "hockey stick" graph in 1998 that purported to show a huge spike in global temperatures attributable to increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. But when other scholars pointed out gaps in Mann's data (he ignored the Medieval Warm Period and the so-called Little Ice Age) and flaws in his methods, Mann attacked them and the journals that published their critiques.

Third, politicized science is both suspect and dangerous. In 2019, Dr. Paul Offit published "Pandora's Lab," a hard-hitting account of seven instances of "science" that shaped disastrous shaped public policies, including eugenics, the war against pesticides, the use of lobotomies to treat mental illness, and the aggressive promotion of trans fats instead of natural dairy products. Just two weeks ago, Joanne Silberner wrote a powerful article for Bari Weiss' new online magazine The Free Press, in which she lays out how the same phenomena Offit exposed have impeded real progress on the search for a cure for Alzheimer's.

Offit's book and Silberner's essay expose two ugly realities: When politicians build their campaigns on sketchy or unproven scientific theories, they have a vested interest in making sure that facts that disprove those theories never see the light of day. And scientists -- whose research money the government controls -- then have a vested interest in making those politicians happy.

Truth may be the first casualty of war, but it is a later casualty of government research as well.
