Davos World Economic Forum: The Death of a Salesman [Internationalist]!
POTUS will be attending the presumably elite World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. No county can better symbolize the hypocrisy of WWII neutrality masking the incredible fortunes that the gnomes of Zurich made funding both sides of the war. [German/Japan vs. America/England].
The “Davos Man” coined by the acerbic Harvard academic, Dr. Samuel Huntington, denotes the global elite who is predominately a white wealthy man who views himself as internationalist or stateless.
“They are the men who have little need for national loyalty, view national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the elite global agenda.” [Wikipedia].
Robert Zoellick, a Davos Man, if there ever there was one (whom I know well) fits that description to a tee. He is an imperious, self-serving, petulant minion of the Bush family. Zoellick serves them with the alacrity and obedience of a Russian serf, brooking few contemplative moments. As a professional political sycophant with few accomplishments of his own, Robert managed to garner millions of undeserved dollars skimming from:
- Federal Home Loan Association
- Goldman Sachs
- World Bank.
His resume is lacks of any military or formal intelligence service to his native country [America]. Like most of the neo-con chicken hawks of 9/11, he partook wholeheartedly in the disgraceful crime of auto-genocide of his fellow Americans.
Dr. Steven Strauss at the Harvard Kennedy School has pointed out on numerous occasions that the Davos meeting of the world elite financiers has been comprised of countless convicted criminal/civil criminals as well as major human rights violators. Davos has been repeatedly accused of ‘fostering’ the legitimacy of miscreant world actors. [Wikipedia].
As for me, I simply follow the Marx Rule:
“If a club wants me to join, then I won’t join it!” This phrase belongs not to Karl Marx but to Groucho Marx.
I have never been invited to Davos nor would I go. In my transition from early youth to adolescence, I attended a Swiss Boarding School near Montreux, Switzerland. I was summarily kicked out with my younger brother when I refused to wear a tie and jacket to my meals. My parting words to the German/French Swiss went something like this: “F..K Off! I am American! Not some effete Swiss!” [It was in coarse French]
This so-called Davos Man has never but only served themselves usually in a self-aggrandizing way. Except for a few, most of the attending civilians at Davos will disappear from the world stage within months if not within a few years.
The most corrupt South African leader, Jacob Zuma, once an ally of Mandela, having fought in the ANC against apartheid, was true to his untutored savage nature when he completely eviscerated the beautiful South Africa of money, resources, and financial credibility. Yet in Davos, he rubbed shoulders with his co-conspirator killer/rapist, Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, to discuss the nature of ‘”The Future of African Economic/Political Development.”
Quite a disgusting irony!
Davos represents the end of internationalism and globalism in all of its forms. It was nothing more than a façade for the rich and famous to make believe they were really important and deserved to be considered ‘elite’, a far more elegant, prescient term than eventual ‘extinct’.
“Brexit” and the devolution of power around the globe bespeaks for a simple evolving phenomenon. The world is no longer a composite of nation states. Those days were gone the moment that the internet introduced the binary modalities of one and zero. Moreover, we are about to enter a far more daring future as the internet gives way to quantum encryption and deep learning technology as well as the internet of things.
The former Brazilian President who was convicted of bribes and financial chicanery, said the following:
“Here in Davos, it is generally assumed that there is only one God-The Financial Markets!”
P.S Right now, there are three major Brazilian leaders who are about to go to Jail. Congratulations Brazil! Abrogado! Thanks!
