The World Economic Forum’s Marie Antoinettes
During a grief counseling session for professional censors and propagandists, The Wall Street Journal’s editor-in-chief complained to the World Economic Forum’s aspiring tyrants: “If you go back really not that long ago … we owned the news. We were the gatekeepers, and we very much owned the facts, as well. If it was said in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, then that was a fact.” To the great consternation of those who believe it is their noble prerogative to manipulate the public by controlling the narrative, ordinary people are now “much more questioning” about what is reported as truth. The public’s rising discernment troubles the “ruling class.” Perhaps that is why government schools refrain from sharpening students’ critical thinking skills these days. Authoritarianism thrives amid hive-mind ignorance.
So sorry, Davos dictators, we commoners are rapidly waking up to the bitter reality that corporate news spin-doctors are just as culpable for today’s civilizational chaos as the malicious central bank money-printers, out-of-control spy agencies, and multinational corporate behemoths that have long worked together to manipulate global events. We have opened our eyes and see you for the monsters that you really are.
That’s probably why two thirds of American “elites” (and surely an even larger share of their international comrades) believe that ordinary Americans enjoy too many individual freedoms (remember when Meghan’s future ex-husband Harry called the First Amendment, “bonkers”?). The public’s “awakening” surely also explains why a string of international despots took to the dais in Davos to tell the World Economic Forum’s power-hungry master race that the greatest threat to its continued global control is…free speech. Forget WWIII, lethal pandemics, cyberattacks, a debt bomb that promises to crash the financial system, or even infrastructure-killing electromagnetic pulses from outer space. For the WEF-lords who rule and expect the planet’s powerless to obey, there is nothing more frightening than intellectual dissent
