World Economic Forum (WEF) founder and executive chairman Klaus Schwab announced that the time has come for world governments to unite as one and tackle global problems such as climate change, trade, and economic disruption.
During a keynote speech on the opening day of the World Government Summit (WGS2022) in Dubai, Schwab said the world can only be improved by more government cooperation at more levels.
Schwab said the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” has arrived, and enduring change is on the way.
The impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution accelerates global change in a much more comprehensive and faster way than previous industrial revolutions. Despite all the challenges, we have to uphold the responsibility we have towards the next generation through collaborations on a national and a global level.
Our futures are intrinsically connected, and that requires collaborative responses.
“The world has to overcome not only the damage done to our economies and our societies by COVID-19, it also has to confront the repercussions of a dangerous clash between major global powers,” Schwab went on to say during the session, Our World Today: Why Governments Need to Act Now.
Schwab is convinced systemic and structural changes are coming to food, energy, and global supply chains.
Schwab also praised the World Government Summit as a place for governments to “go beyond crisis management.”
“In times of crisis, the role of governments is more important and more relevant than ever,” he added.
Schwab said globally interconnected challenges required global, collaborative responses at a supra-governmental level.
The WEF seems to enjoy predicting its own role in an evolving world.
Schwab even wrote a book celebrating the coronavirus pandemic not as a crisis but an opportunity for a ‘new normal.’
In Covid-19: the Great Reset, he wrote:
“At the time of writing (June 2020), the pandemic continues to worsen globally. Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal.”
“The short response is: never. Nothing will ever return to the ‘broken’ sense of normalcy that prevailed prior to the crisis because the coronavirus pandemic marks a fundamental inflection point in our global trajectory.”
Last year, The World Economic Forum predicted what life for humans would look like after the “Great Reset,” foreseeing the “age of human robots” will come to an end as people will be replaced by technology.
The WEF claimed technological wonders would free humanity from labor for work which requires the “understanding what it means to be human.”
“Take a walk into the future,” the WEF told followers on social media.
“We’re getting past the last 10,000 years where we’ve used humans, by and large, engaging only a tiny fraction of human abilities and forcing people into repetitive, tedious dead-end work for the most part.”
“So the age of human robots is over, and we have to figure out a new age.”
