Klaus Martin Schwab
Who is he: Klaus Martin Schwab is Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, which he founded over 40 years ago. Forbes has called Schwab "indisputably the most powerful connector in the world; his annual forum in Davos, Switzerland, brings together nearly everyone who's anyone [and] feeds a slow January news cycle [with] conspiracy theories."
It is interesting that Forbes mentions conspiracy theories; 20 years ago writers would not have done so. It is the Internet Reformation that has changed people's perceptions about these NGOs and what people like Klaus Schwab are really up to.
Once upon a time, those like Klaus Schwab who create globalist institutions and organizations like the World Economic Forum were simply seen as forward-looking deities of some sort. Today, the powerful alternative media may see them as participants in a subtle takeover of the world with the intent of instituting world governance.
Their perspectives and intentions were hidden once, but not today. We can see, for instance from Schwab's background and intentions that he is fully committed to a single world government. He cannot hide this fact, though if Schwab started now – in the Internet era – he and his non-profit World Economic Forum would likely be more circumspect.
Background: Klaus Schwab was born in Ravensburg, Germany in 1938. Schwab has said, "The legacy of the wartime situation had a huge impact on me. I became very interested in reconciliation and dialogue. We had to create a new Europe based on these two things."
Schwab is evidently a person of achievement; he has two doctoral degrees, one in mechanical engineering, and one in economics and social sciences. Schwab spent a year at Harvard University and then became the youngest professor at the University of Geneva.
The World Economic Forum began in 1971 as the European Management Forum. Klaus Schwab, then a business school professor, organized a meeting of 400 prominent globalists in Davos. Today that meeting has become an institution known as the Davos World Economic Forum.
At the time, and even recently, Schwab has not hidden his agenda. According to the Forum website: "The mission of the World Economic Forum is expressed in its motto: 'committed to improving the state of the world.' It fulfills that mission by engaging business, political, academic and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas."
The Forum is an independent not for profit organization that is supposedly about advancing, "Global public interest." As part of his larger efforts, Schwab has set up other internationalist groups including The Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, developed around that same theme.
Klaus Schwab also established The Forum of Young Global Leaders for people under the age of 40 who have a globalist yen – or in Schwab's words, "respond to the growing consensus that the challenges confronting the world demand integrated solutions."
Schwab has said he is most interested in avoiding another world war; his efforts are in our view helping create a totalitarian state, even without the overt use of force.
