As elites arrive in Davos, conspiracy theories will thrive on Japan Today too. Cue ....

1 ( +5 / -4 )

All these "crazy" conspiracy theories about Davos!

Hundreds of public sessions are planned, but the four-day conference is also known for secretive backroom meetings and deal-making by business leaders. This gap between what’s shown to the public and what happens behind closed doors helps make that makes the meeting a flashpoint for misinformation.

Nothing to see here! Just the usual backroom dealings between billionaire oligarchs and the so-called "democratic " leaders supposedly serving the electorate.

They organize vast public wealth transfers, mostly to oligarchs, and are worried about potential blowback.

It is in plain sight.

Loving the picture.

Klaus Schwab, our global overlord, with an iron fist ready to smash the podium.

I'm sure he cares about what's best for the little people.

Conspiracy theories? These people tell you out in the open what they want to do, then when they get unwanted attention they try to smear critics as conspiracy theorists.

The sooner they're tossed into solitary confinement, the better.

I should add that the order of handling unpopular matters seems to go like this:

It's not happening.

It's happening, but why do you care?

It's happening, and that's a good thing.

$20 trillion in offshore banks speaks very loudly.

Schwab is on record as telling us that "You will be happy and own nothing."

Well, will the Davis elite be giving away their gas guzzling private jets?

I think not…

That sounds like the climate change deniers to a tee.

I'm a globalist. Who wouldn't be ? Do you still live in the same house in the same village ? Do you fear the other village a mile across the fields ?

Globalism, just like any other utopian ideology, completely ignores human nature, which is why they always fail, catastrophically. And judging from your posting history, the kind of globalism you prefer differs quite markedly from the type advocated by the Davos crowd. That is, they'd be at the top controlling the resources, and you'd be at the bottom eating ze bugs, with your freedom to associate and move at the whim of them.

Still, support them if you want. But bear in mind that your goals and theirs don't align.

When that village doesn't work, doesn't respect human rights, individuality, freedom, and wants to make me a QR code, yeah.

I want nothing to do with it.

Indeed, he did not say "We will be happy and own nothing."

Anyway, many so-called conspiracy theories are actually 6-month spoiler alerts.

We already are. It's called capitalism. Aint no conspiracy.

capitalism has raised more people out of abject poverty in the last 5 minutes than communism has in over a century of its miserable, tragic, 100 million death existence.

There are other ways than capitalism or communism.

Sure a lot of stories talking about conspiracy theories these days.

Whatever.

You know the MSM will never dig deeper than they’re told about the Davos lobster and steak club. Climate whatever takes a back page with the Big Wing of private jets and copters zooming around.

There aren't. Its the choice between life and death with nothing in between.
