A Bit of Good News
Ekaterina Blinova Reports “Globalization has died and Davos 2023 was its funeral.” Read her report: (ER: see below for this)
The neoconservative attack on Russia and China has a silver lining. It has killed Globalism. Russia and China and the countries dependent on Russian energy and Chinese goods and financing have been cut off from the WEF’s effort to unify the world under US hegemony. Globalism was never anything but a way for Washington to exploit the rest of the world. As Ms. Blinova says, the World Economic Forum is an elite club that intended to dictate Washington’s rules to the rest of the world. Washington would rule under the guise of “globalism.”
Klaus Schwab, in his 80s, will soon be gone and the WEF with him. Bill Gates might try to keep the WEF going for his own sick agenda, but today the US is a considerably smaller force on the world scene than it was during the Reagan presidency.
Washington is such an inbred system that the consequence is stupidity. People capable of thinking outside of official narratives are simply not accepted. It is no longer possible for leadership based in objective reality to take hold in Washington.
In the US, all of the elements necessary for a free society have been dismantled. Law has moved from Congress to executive branch regulatory agencies who decide the regulations that implement the law. Judges are appointed for the causes they serve–for example, abortion or right to life–and not for their knowledge of law and commitment to Constitutional rule. The security agencies are politicized and serve vested interests instead of our country’s security. Education consists of anti-white, anti-American indoctrination such as the 1619 Project and Critical Race Theory. The US school system, including the universities, teaches the young that white people are racists guilty of oppressing “people of color.”
In the face of this ruling dogma, the neoconservatives’ claim that America, like Israel, is the chosen country, both exceptional and indispensable–God’s Chosen People–lacks support in the indoctrinated youth. Clearly, the neoconservative claims are inconsistent with the education that the young are receiving.
How does a country go to war, as the neoconservatives intend, with economically and militarily powerful countries such as Russia and China when the country’s educational system teaches the younger generations that their country is racist to the point of evil? (ER: An excellent point – how can indoctrinated youth who despise their own country get behind it in order to fight another? But then isn’t the whole point to BRING DOWN EVERYTHING? Still, this is a nice contradiction in the neoconservative position that Roberts points out.) Who is going to fight for racist, exploitative America other than the military/security complex whose budget is at stake? People can be coerced into military service, but if their heart is not in it, how much of a fight are they capable of?
With sensitivity training, denial of promotion to white heterosexuals while gender and race “parity” is achieved, and the subordination of white male heterosexuals to black, transgendered, homosexual and female officers has taken the soul out of the US military. The US military is an organization divided by Identity Politics instead of a unified force and now faces two rising powers that have escaped demoralization of their armies by woke politics.
The Russians and Chinese are growing stronger while ruin shows its head everywhere in the West. The infrastructure to support Washington’s “diplomacy by coercion” is eroding. The collapse of Western dominance might save us from nuclear Armageddon.
Globalization Has Died and Davos 2023 Was Its Funeral Ceremony, Scholars Sum Up
EKATERINA BLINOVA for SPUTNIK NEWS
The World Economic Forum’s annual meeting took place in Davos on January 16-20, 2023. International observers sat down with Sputnik to formulate the main message of the gathering in a nutshell.
Russia’s Independence Doesn’t Fit in Davosian ‘Ideal World’
“The forum in Davos is a congress of adherents of globalism,” Konstantin Babkin, president of the Rosagromash Association and co-chair of Moscow Economic Forum (MEF), told Sputnik. “These people would like to see a unified world where global corporations rule, dominating even the official state structures. (ER: This is a definition of fascism.) What is happening in Ukraine contradicts their ideas of an ideal world. Many multinational corporations had to leave Russia. So, [Russia] has fallen out of the control of these Western corporations. This contradicts their ideas about the ideal state of affairs.”
‘Biodiversity’ in Economy & Politics Instead of Global Unification
“It would be nice to have different models, different states, different peoples, different cultures,” the Russian scholar said, drawing parallels with natural biodiversity. “[There will be] Iranian model, Indian model, Chinese model, Western model, and rejection of globalism. I think this is a good thing, and Russia needs to develop its own economy. I can also advise Iran, and China, and other large states, and state associations (…) I think the world that Davos is promoting is so unstable.”
“Globalization the way we know it has died and Davos 2023 was its funeral ceremony,” Luft concluded.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
