Every year, the world’s global elite meet to discuss global affairs and how to solve the global economic challenges facing humanity. These meetings are of utmost importance, and are given ample media attention by all accredited media outlets. The people at Davos are selflessly dedicated to the betterment of others, and have forgone all self interest. They want YOU to be richer, more informed, freer, and happier, and the topics they discuss every year reflect that.
This year, the issues discussed ranged from trade to climate change, and the threat that Trump poses to global progress. World leaders spoke about the populist ‘uprisings’ (in quotes because they are right-wing uprising and therefore not legitimate) in Europe and America, and why they are misguided. Technology experts spoke about how technological advancements are scaring working class whites into supporting extreme trade policies to protect jobs in outdated sectors such as manufacturing, and how the future of jobs is in services and app development.
The most inspiring words however, were undoubtedly from President Xi Jinping of China, who warned of the dangers of Trump’s protectionism in the form of tariffs and various policies to support American jobs, and how the future is in globalization, not nationalism. China has never implemented policies to support Chinese companies, and has only ever focused on a global economic vision that includes all nations, so they are speaking from a position of authority on this matter.
China also warned about the very real threat of climate change and the dangers of Trump’s inaction to tackle this impending disaster. This message resonated with progressives throughout the Western world, who are appalled that conservatives have the gall to ignore top scientists who have been predicting environmental disasters for decades as a result of CO2 pollution. Skeptics argue that the climate has varied wildly for millions of years without human intervention, but this is to ignore the verified and infallible computer models which confirm that without anthropomorphic CO2, the climate would remain optimal for humans and the environment, and WITH CO2 it would definitely be worse.
This year, the Davos conference hasn’t garnered as much attention as it usually does, due to the rise of fake news and Trump’s seemingly endless series of scandals and misdeeds, which dominate the media day after day. Hopefully however, once the fake news media is shut down, we can return to a world in which the agendas of important conferences like Davos remain front and center, and are the subject of every dinner table conversation. Davos are the true leaders of the world, more so than elected leaders of nation states, and they need to be listened to and taken seriously. For the good of humanity, we should all take heed to their wise words, and do our best to spread their message far and wide. For it is only with knowledge, that we may truly change the world and turn our vision of a new world order into reality.
