There is so much to object to from the WEF and the WHO, who together through their far reaching Agenda 2030 and others, aim to bring about complete social, cultural, economic, political and environmental change for the betterment of the global corporations and central banking institutions.
Their latest edicts describing the changes we need to implement in order for them to achieve their goals, are published on the WEF website. I have cherry-picked some of the key elements, which on the surface seem mildly innocuous and benign, but which have the capability, capacity and potential to disrupt and destroy economies, social and political organisations and make citizens nothing more than slaves to the globalists.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution
The Fourth Industrial Revolution represents a fundamental change in the ways that we live and work. It is a new chapter in human development, enabled by advances that are commensurate with those of the first, second and third industrial revolutions - merging the physical, digital, and biological worlds and fusing technologies in ways that create both promise and peril.
The speed, breadth, and depth of this revolution has forced us to rethink how countries should develop, how organizations create value, and how people from all walks of life can benefit from innovation.
Now, as the world grapples with COVID-19, there is an opportunity to further embrace this revolution in ways that create a more inclusive, human-centred global economy.
The Digital Transformation of Business
COVID-19 catapulted businesses everywhere into the digital-first world. Technology had already been reshaping industries, business models and supply chains when the pandemic hit - as people demanded more touch-less and online experiences.
Yet, the results have so far been mixed, and many businesses have fallen short of their digital transformation goals. Those businesses slow to change - particularly small firms - have become especially vulnerable to disruption by digital natives. The technology decisions made by the leaders of these and other companies now will help determine not only their own future success, but also the success of their employees, customers, and partners.
Future of Computing
Curation: University of Innsbruck
In the not-too-distant past, computing was limited to a few large machines installed at a handful of universities. Now, fully-fledged information and entertainment systems are sitting in just about everyone’s pocket. New approaches like quantum computing and artificial neurons promise to push performance and efficiency even further.
However, technological progress has raised significant concerns related to our ability to protect both sensitive data and the environment - which can only be addressed with regulation designed to keep pace with innovation.
The fast, intelligent internet connectivity enabled by 5G technology is expected to create about $12 trillion in global economic value within the next two decades.
In order to make that happen, however, trillions will first have to be invested in the rollout of global 5G networks (which may be delayed in some cases due to COVID-19).
Greater cooperation is needed to foster deployment; when used to power the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and big data, 5G can deliver significant social value. One study indicated that it will support hundreds of thousands of jobs in Switzerland (population 8.5 million) alone.
While several countries have initiated roadmaps for 5G rollout, others are falling behind - partly due to the lack of alignment among policy-makers, regulators and the private sector.
Future of Media, Entertainment and Sport
Curation: McGill University
The world of media, entertainment, and sport has been upended by new business models, user-generated content, and the use of digital platforms to effectively distribute everything from streamed matches to social messages. This is having a direct impact on the moulding of cultures and societies.
COVID-19 promises to accelerate underlying industry trends, as sport franchises seek out new ways to sustain audience engagement and the boundaries that once defined media companies continue to dissolve. Restoring trust will be critical, particularly when it comes to trading in reliable and accurate content, and making use of personal data.

The digital communications industry is facilitating unprecedented levels of global internet use, online social interaction, and financial inclusion.
As the industry is transformed, effective policy and regulation that support businesses could boost productivity. At the same time, the industry must be open to new models of collaboration and governance, in order to better address challenges like data privacy and growing demands on infrastructure.

COVID-19 has had an increasingly devastating impact since the World Health Organization first identified a new coronavirus as the cause of a mysterious pneumonia in early 2020.
By January 2022 there were more than 295 million confirmed cases globally, and more than 5 million recorded deaths - though the actual death toll may be significantly higher. However, we now have the knowledge and tools necessary to contain it.
Mask and vaccine mandates have been deployed broadly, more than 100 hundred vaccines are now in development, and 14 are already being distributed around the world.
In addition, new treatments have been shown to successfully reduce the risk of severe COVID-19. The challenge now is to protect vulnerable populations, while limiting economic damage and continuing to monitor a constantly evolving viral threat.
The Digital Economy
The disruption caused by the Fourth Industrial Revolution has been accelerated by COVID-19, and increased our need for agility, adaptability, and positive transformation.
As the global economy rapidly digitalizes, an estimated 70% of new value created over the next decade will be based on digitally enabled platform business models. However, nearly half of the world’s population remains unconnected to the internet. While digital technologies have the potential to enable new value for everyone, they risk further exacerbating exclusion, the unequal concentration of power and wealth, and social instability.
Companies must use digital infrastructure and data to collaborate, develop innovative business models, navigate disruption, and transition to a new normal - post-pandemic, purpose-driven, sustainable, and inclusive.
Having a trusted, verifiable identity is essential.
As digital interaction increases at unprecedented rate, not least due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information comprising our identities is being widely shared in ways that create both opportunities and risks. If designed right, digital identities can provide countries with economic value equal to as much as 13% of their GDP, save hundreds of billions of hours through streamlined e-government, and cut trillions of dollars in costs for businesses by 2030, according to one estimate.
For the roughly one billion people going without official proof of identity (and the more than three billion people unable to effectively use an identity on digital channels), collaborative and user-centric digital identity models guided by shared principles can be empowering.
Internet of Things
Curation: Michigan State University
The Internet of Things, or “IoT,” surrounds us with networks of smart, web-connected devices and services capable of sensing, interconnecting, inferring, and acting. It is enabling the development of new products and business models, while creating ways for governments to deliver more useful services and better engage with the public.
Some of the most important issues related to IoT include technology architecture and standardization, safety and security risks, threats to privacy and trust, potentially missed opportunities for broad social benefits - and a need for responsible governance.
Aviation, Travel and Tourism
As recently as 2019, the travel and tourism industry accounted for an estimated one in ten jobs worldwide and about 10% of global GDP. However, the subsequent spread of COVID-19 in 2020 resulted in the worst year in tourism history, according to the World Tourism Organization.
International arrivals declined by 74%, putting as many as 120 million tourism-related jobs at risk. The industry is now relying on the steady rollout of vaccines, and many observers do not anticipate a rebound before 2022.
Curation: The Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime
Organized crime may prevent the achievement of nearly one quarter of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, according to the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime. Illicit trade in people, goods, drugs, money, intellectual property, and natural resources has made criminal networks into multi-billion-dollar syndicates - undermining legitimate companies, the integrity of governments, and public security.
Banking and Capital Markets
Curation: Imperial College Business School
Trust in banks and traditional mechanisms like stock markets has continued to erode, more than a decade after the financial crisis transformed the way we view the interaction between banking, capital markets, economics, and politics.
We must now find a way for the global economy to reach its potential while minimizing the risk of destabilizing side effects - and develop capital markets that operate in healthier co-existence with bank-based financial systems.
These are just the headlines; a synopsis of far greater change and modification than even some of the most committed futurists could envisage.
