Resisting the Future the Global Elite Have Planned for Us

 

The Global Elite…represented by the folks who fly to Davos and Climate Change conferences on fleets of private jets… have plans for the world. These plans were summarized as “You will own nothing and be happy.” And also, eat bugs. For some reason, forcing “the poors” (i.e., anyone who does not have a private jet to fly to Davos) to eat bugs is a really big deal to the Global Elite. However, the people who would be the subject of their global governance schemes are less enthusiastic, and this is very vexing to the global elite.

“The good news is the elite across the world trust each other more and more… the bad news is that the majority of people trusted that elite less…”

Yes, the more people become aware that the future the Global Elite have in mind for us is one in which we are crammed into urban pods and fed bugs (while they keep their private jets, mansions in the Hamptons, and Wagyu steaks), the less enthused the common people are about these plans. And this is a problem for them.

This lady quoted above (I don’t know who she is) is verifying something that’s been said for a long time; the trans-national global elite considers themselves above the citizens of their respective countries. If billionaires from the USA, Europe, the Middle East, and China get in a room together; they are all going to be quite chummy. Concerns about differences in ideology, in human rights, seem a lot less important when you’re discussing whether to trade up from a Gulfstream G700 to an ACJ350.

Sort of related, the Smithsonian Museum has a new exhibit on their version of the future. It aligns with what the World Economic Forum envisions and it’s so depressing Morrissey would have written at least eight songs about it back in the eighties. Whereas seventy years or so ago, visions of the future meant flying cars, robot workers, and colonies on the moon, the Smithsonian vision of the future is one in which cars are illegal, we make our own clothes, and live in buildings constructed from garbage.

And the Global Elite wonder why we’re not enthusiastic about their plans for us.

    We must submit Victor Tango because they know so much better than we do what’s good for us!

    We will have nothing, be able to do nothing and be Happy! Yea!

    It’s hilarious that they declare themselves “the global elite” without an ounce of self-awareness.

    The hubris of these people. I hope their next conference in Davos coincides with a freak Davos-destroying hurricane that wipes them all out.

    I have only recognized and acknowledged this new form of warfare since Donald Trump became the POTUS as a result of the 2016 election. It is now apparent to me that all the military confrontations in which America has engaged in the last three decades are distractions initiated and supported by these elites while they push other causes such as climate change and a reset to world governance. Donald Trump saw this and obviously got the attention of these elites and they have been working very diligently around the world to curtail his efforts and influence among the people. An incompetent Joe Biden is in the White House after a questionable election largely facilitated by a questionable worldwide pandemic. Biden’s policies as POTUS conform completely to the pattern dictated by these elites and designed to bring down the American Constitutional Republic.

    We will now see if the exceptional qualities of this Republic as founded will enable and drive its people to contest and defeat the world government effort led by these elites.

    In one view though isn’t this the story of human history? The elites have their grand vision that they will apply to the plebes. But lo and behold the plebes don’t entirely trust the elites. Then sometimes the plebes get together and figure out how to bypass the elite and their grand vision.

    Yes, but I think *they* think that technology will make it work this time. AI will enable the constant universal surveillance necessary to maintain order in their utopia. Control of media and advanced techniques in psychological operations will ensure the conformity, cooperation, and complacence of the population.

    Yes, in the past the efforts have been restrained by geographical barriers no longer there. The modern technology solves that. But there’s no accounting for the common people unless they can be actually controlled through that technology so they must be taught to take the jab.

    Pretty sure the chip, now in use in Sweden, is coming soon to a pharmacy near you.  Or maybe, since fake covid passports are out there,  the untermenschen will figure out how to falsify the chips, too.

    Mostly I’m surprised that the “elite” seem surprised that the plebes don’t trust the elite. When have the plebes ever trusted the elite? [I do recognize the counter that the people promoting whatever has never worked in the past always say, “This time it will be different because we (the most brilliant people ever) are now here to do it right.” But they should still recognize that the plebes aren’t going to trust them.]

    I heard decades ago, that the purpose of the Viet Nam war was not political, but was intended to draw wealth from rich countries to, among other things, upgrade the number and quality of SE Asian port facilities, in order to benefit their coming manufacturing role.  In other words, moving economic activity from higher areas to lower areas.  To do this they must bring America down, using overseas manufacturing, Latin populations coming in and lowering and evening out overall prosperity.

    It’s all about managed dimunition for the sake of The Planet. Your shower will be colder, your toilet less enthusiastic in its flushing, your gas grill replaced with an electric device powered by the breath of Zeus, your house replaced with an apartment, your car replaced with mass transit, your steak replaced with as protein wedge, your vacation to Disneyworld replaced with a digital simulacrum. It can’t be done, but they can tell themselves they’re the best and the brightest, because they know that if they could wave a wand, they would. For The Planet.

    Rubbish.

    I get the concern about “Your shower will be colder, your toilet less enthusiastic in its flushing, your gas grill replaced with an electric device powered by the breath of Zeus, your house replaced with an apartment, your car replaced with mass transit, your steak replaced with as protein wedge” but you’re ignoring that for most of the planet this is already their reality (except for the protein wedge part, where you can replace with ‘nothing or a few pulses or rice’ (and your toilet does not exist).  The only reason you have more than them is that you’re part of a global elite.  Not on point with the pity party, but that’s fact.

    And yes – obviously all poor people don’t live in the Global South, and all rich people don’t live in the Global North (which strangely includes Australia) but more or less that’s the reality.  And even poor people in the Global North are not. that. poor. when it comes to things like nutrition, clothing and housing. (Or toilets.)

    All true.  But the poor are not aspiring to remain poor and rightfully so. There’s also no reason to think they will, especially if they don’t buy into the latest trendy, nutty ideas seeping from the west.

    Conversely, the Davos crowd are aspiring that the west becomes poor and those not in the west remain poor. And increasingly under their thumb.

     The folks who run central governments are always confident they can run things much better than the ignorant mobs at the grass roots.  This approach has always existed.  It’s the nature of the minimally more educated and intelligent elite  who run things and those skilled at gathering power.  So far it has always ended in collapse and devolution to minimally functioning states with vast poverty and lots of corruption.   Can anyone name an exception at any point in history.

    Nonsense. I am an upper-middle class American, and I have no more influence on policy than an African bushman or a Chinese slave laborer. George Soros, Bill Gates, and Zhong Shanshan, on the other hand, have a great deal of influence on global policy.

    It’s not the wealth that makes the elites the elites. It’s the power. Yes, westerners, even poor westerners live better than most of the world materially. But, that doesn’t make all westerners elites. Nor does the relative poverty of people in non-western countries make them plebes. It’s the power to rule over other people’s lives (which, yes, usually involves being wealthy) and make decisions affecting how they live that makes the ruling elites elite. In that sense, those of us not in the ruling class are plebes, even if we’re relatively well-off. We are subject to the whims of the Davos crowd. They just know so much better, right? Otherwise why would they be wealthy? They’ve got it all figured out.

    Equality of outcomes versus equality of opportunity. The only reason I have more than someone else is that I’m part of an elite …. that presumably keeps everyone else down, otherwise all of these other places would be thriving beyond imagination. Yes the west steals from and oppresses the brown people. Right. Communism, socialism, and culture have nothing to do with it. Right.

    For at least 30 years (undoubtedly more) the condition of the world has been improving. At the same time the condition of the average person in the US, while not exactly worsening, has gotten more tenuous and hollow. Vitality follows production and realistic employment.It’s not perfect (and never was even in the West), but vitality in the West is certainly waning.

    As VTK said, generating and enjoying prosperity does not make one part of the global elite. Positive societal impact via production or culture is only one narrow point of entry into the club of the Global Elite. My understanding is that the old blood of the club tends to look askance at these kinds of members anyway.

    A number of very good books have been written about the cultural and political barriers to prosperity in the Third World. For instance: traditions that demand that, the moment one has any money, one must dole out all one’s money to support less industrious relatives–as a result of which one cannot accumulate capital to build the business. Ancient traditions that require one to give gifts to tribal elders in order to get permission to do anything, which in the modern world become endless payoffs to local and regional strongmen and their henchmen. Vast bureaucracies which make it ruinously costly in time and money to get permission to build, to run a business, etc. And then there was the multi-generational catastrophic love affair with socialism.

    In this interview with Peter Robinson Thomas Sowell discussed his book Wealth Poverty and Politics:

    It is not the origins of poverty which need to be explained. What requires explaining are the things that created and sustained higher standards of living.

    Robinson: There are a handful of big themes that run all the way through Wealth, Poverty, and Politics. One of the themes, and I’m quoting from the book now: “It is not the origins of poverty which need to be explained. What requires explaining are the things that created and sustained higher standards of living.” What do you mean by that?

    Sowell: Well, there are actually books with titles and subtitles about the origins of poverty. The entire human species began in poverty. So I don’t know how we determine the origin–perhaps in the Garden of Eden or someplace? But more than that. You’re trying to explain why some countries are poor, rather than trying to explain why other countries are more prosperous. There’s no explanation needed for poverty. The species began in poverty. So what you really need to know is what are the things that enable some countries–and some groups within countries–to become prosperous?

    And I think the general lawlessness and petty corruption must be counted, too. As I understand it, you carry extra cash in Mexico to pay off the police if you’re ever stopped. And, if you’re Americano, chances are you’ll be stopped.

    This is what’s disturbing about the banana republic aspects of Democrat governance. Different rules depending on your political affiliation leads to disrespect for the rule of law. And, soon, maybe you have to payoff the police or get hauled off to jail for having a taillight out.

    You might say, corruption rolls downhill.
