I've been receiving so much email containing articles about "the Great Reset" - usually in conjunction with the covid planscamdemic, digital "currencies", 2020 American election fraud, and so on - that I decided to do something a little unusual for today's blog, and high octane speculation. I decided to do just a bit of "dirt scratching" about the familiar face of the "Great Reset" crowd, Dr. Klaus Schwabb. I say "dirt scratching" rather than "digging" because what I ran across was... well... perplexing. There are plenty of articles about him, his agenda, and so on. But these are of a speculative nature.
Schwabb is of course that German guy whose bald pate and perpetually scowling face has been seen in various interviews on the propatainment media lately, opining about the coming golden age vhen everyone vill be surveilled (or perhaps better put, "serveilled"), vill not own any property, und everyone vill haff a guaranteed income, and so on. In short, he's a globaloneyist sourpuss, handing out edicts and pronouncements in a heavy German accent of vhat he vants ze vorld to be.
I cannot help, when I look and listen to this man, to think of Ian Fleming's James Bond movies and books, and the shadowy organization called SPECTRE, which is an acronym for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. This organization is headed - if you remember your Bond movies - by a German character named Ernst Stavro Blofeld, who in his most memorable incarnation was played by British actor Donald Pleasance, bald, and perpetually hovering around white cats. There were other actors who played Blofeld, of course, including most recently Christopher Waltz, but Pleasance always hit the image of Blofeld on the head for me...
... as does Klaus Schwabb, and that raises the issue of Schwabb's World Economic Forum as being a sort of real-world counterpart to SPECTRE.
But I digress.
What is interesting about Herr Blofe... er... Schwabb is his biography. Or rather, lack thereof. Just for kicks and giggles, check out the Wikipedia article on this arachnid (that's a fancy taxonomical term for spiders and ticks):
Here we read some mildly intriguing things:
Klaus Martin Schwab (German pronunciation: [klaʊs ˈmaʁtiːn ʃvaːp]; born 30 March 1938) is a German engineer and economist best known as the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum. His wife and first collaborator, Hilde, co-founded the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship with him.
Ok... he's born in Germany in 1938. From there we leap to this:
Schwab holds a doctorate in Economics from the University of Fribourg, a doctorate in Engineering from the ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) and a Master of Public Administration from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. Before pursuing his doctorates, he graduated as an engineer from the ETH Zurich, and as an economist from the University of Fribourg..
Additionally, he has been the recipient of 17 honorary doctorates, including from the London School of Economics, the National University of Singapore, KAIST, and over a dozen other universities, from Kaunas to Haifa to Bangkok.. He is also an honorary professor of the University of Geneva, the Ben-Gurion University of Israel and the China Foreign Affairs University.
He obtained his "Abitur" or high school diploma from the Humanistisches Gymnasium in Ravensburg, Germany.
And later on in the entry we're informed that it was indeed Schwabb who invented the idea of "stakeholders":
In 1971, Schwab founded the European Management Forum, which in 1987 became the World Economic Forum, as a not-for-profit foundation committed to improving the state of the world. He founded the WEF in 1971, the same year in which he published Moderne Unternehmensführung im Maschinenbau (Modern Enterprise Management in Mechanical Engineering). In that book, he argued that the management of a modern enterprise must serve not only shareholders but all stakeholders (die Interessenten), to achieve long-term growth and prosperity. Schwab has championed the multistakeholder concept since the WEF’s inception. In 2015, the WEF was formally recognised by the Swiss Government as an "international body". Under Schwab's management, the WEF has been keen to promote its image as a driver for reconciliation efforts in different parts of the world, acting as a catalyst of numerous collaborations and international initiatives.
In 2004, Schwab created a new foundation using the US$1 million prize money from the Dan David Prize he received that year from Israel. The Forum of Young Global Leaders aims to create a dynamic global community of exceptional people (under 40) with the vision, courage and influence to drive positive change in the world.
And finally, of course, he's the recipient of numerous awards from the high and mighty:
He was knighted by Queen Elisabeth (Knight Commander of the Order of St Michael and St George, 2006), received the Knight Commanders Cross of Germany (2012) and the Grand Cordon of the Rising Sun of Japan (2013). He is a Knight of the Légion d'Honneur of France (1997), received the Candlelight Award from then U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan (New York, 2001) and received the China Reform Friendship Medal (2018).
Now you might be asking yourself a question, and believe me, it's the same question I'm asking myself: OK, Herr Professor Doktor des Globaloneyismus was born in Regensburg in 1938, and the next entry of note we have is him founding the precursor to the World Economic Forum, the European Management Forum, in 1971, a gap of - oh look - 33 years. What was he doing in that 33 years? Well, presumably earning all those doctorates in processology and bureaucratese and technocratism and learning how to become Ernst Stavro Blofeld. With whom did he study? We're not told. What were his dissertations about? We're not told. What were his memberships and associations? We're not told. Who were his parents? We're not told (although, as one might expect, I entertain some suspicions in all these regards).
In short, there's a giant lacuna of some 33 years in this globaloney guru's public record that raises all sorts of questions in my mind. We know, via relatively easily available public sources, next to nothing about this man's early life.
Almost as if someone, somewhere, does not want those family ties or early associations too well known.
And that, dear readers, sends my suspicion meter into the red zone.
See you on the flip side...
