The point in time at which the WEF launched this communist demand is particularly explosive: the article in question dates from April 2020, the so-called pandemic was only a few weeks old. The text, which appeared on the Weforum homepage, was written by Kanni Wignaraja, Deputy Secretary General of the UN, and Balasz Horvath, Chief Economist of the UN Development Programme. The links between the WEF and the UN are considerable.
A comment by Willi Huber
The WHO declared the Covid pandemic on March 12, 2020. Barely a month later, the above-mentioned senior officials of the United Nations (UN) wrote the text “Universal basic income is the answer to the inequalities exposed by COVID-19‘ for the World Economic Forum. In English: “The unconditional basic income (BGI) is the answer to the inequalities revealed by COVID-19”. It is very exciting how many “inequalities” of humanity one discovers after a month of the alleged Covid pandemic and wants to solve with this deeply communist demand. The English term for this is “Universal Basic Income (UBI)”.
Everything about this text indicates that both the pandemic and the responses to it were planned for a long time. The authors describe that as part of the “pandemic outbreak”, several states would put together huge stimulus packages and print large amounts of money. This would be understandable, but such projects should be “strategic and sustainable”.
Out of this crisis, then, must emerge a new social contract that redresses profound inequalities that pervade all societies. To be clear: the question should no longer be whether resources for effective social protection can be found – but how they can be found.
The plan for funding is to create cross-border tax laws worldwide and “prevent tax evasion”. Of course, this is nothing more than total control and surveillance. And another side effect can only be that people in rich nations are heavily taxed so that people in poorer actions can indulge in the sweet idleness that an unconditional basic income brings with it. The UN officials paraphrase this as: “Put simply, we all have to pay our fair share.”
Years of campaign in the media switched to the same
As a result, a survey from 2017 by “Dalia Research” is presented, according to which 68 percent of Europeans would support an unconditional basic income. After a short research, it turns out that this survey is not an isolated case. There have been comparable surveys and figures in numerous media in Europe since 2020, at the same time, a whole “acceptance campaign” can be observed, with which one wants to make the project palatable to the people. In most cases, around 2,000 people were interviewed. Apparently, it depends heavily on who orders and conducts such a survey. So were in April 2021 in a market agent survey in Austria only 38.2 percent for a BGI. An example of the campaign is the article in The Standard (member of George Soros’ Project Syndicate): Corona should promote unconditional basic income. Addendum: The popularity is also increasing among the general public. Caption: The Corona crisis has apparently changed the attitude of Austrians to an unconditional basic income.
Conveniently, at that time, Pope Francis also announced that it was time to start thinking about a universal basic income. Justin Trudeau was also “on fire” for the plans at the time, who has since proven to be a particularly undemocratic corona hardliner who has always fulfilled all the WEF’s specifications and plans instead of serving the people of his country.
BGE failed terrifically in Finland
The only major field test of such a communist basic income is failed phenomenally in Finland and was terminated before the end of the planned trial period. So-called “left” scientists do not want to accept this. Similar to communism, which is said to have never been “properly” attempted, they argue that the experimental setup was wrong, making the Finnish attempt flawed and meaningless. They do not want to recognize the nature of human beings, who usually choose the path of least effort and least resistance. In Finland, 2,000 unemployed received an unconditional basic income from the state. And – oh miracle! – most of them remained unemployed.
The UN officials end their article with fear and panic mongering:
The alternative to forgoing UBI is worse — the rising likelihood of social unrest, conflict, uncontrollable mass migration, and the proliferation of extremist groups capitalizing on and fermenting social disenchantment. With this in mind, we need to seriously consider introducing a well-designed UBI to allow shocks to hit, but not destroy.
Total dependency, total control
Ultimately, all people in the world should be made dependent on their states, which will pay them a monthly income without anything in return. Combined with plans to introduce a social credit system that rewards good behavior in the interests of the state and punishes misconduct, it is clear where the journey is headed. Disobedient citizens are guaranteed to be punished – imagine citizens being so disobedient that they even refused a gene vaccination. it is questionable whether they will then still be able to obtain a basic income. Of course it’s a pity if you take away their jobs at the same time – but only for the good of the people, of course.
In the really very small and in light type printed at the WEF you can read: The views expressed in this article are solely those of the author and not those of the World Economic Forum. Well then.
