The US news channel FOX Business reports on statements by the World Economic Forum WEF: Steps must be taken after the self-proclaimed world leaders led by Klaus Schwab to reduce dependence on critical metals amidst – this would also be important for “green energy”. To this end, one should reduce the ownership of private vehicles. Instead, people should use “car sharing” offers.
Hardly any quote in recent years has become as famous as that of Klaus Schwab: “You will own nothing and you will be happy.” Of course, with this central thesis from the book “The Great Reset”, Schwab does not mean all people, but only those who do not already belong to the select circle of multi-billionaires.
That Hayek-Institut explains precisely:
On the contrary, what belongs to nobody, nobody cares about. Ownership stimulates management and responsibility. Strong property rights also include the ability to trade resources, allowing markets to reallocate natural resources for conservation purposes.
However, the Great Reset Agenda provides for neither free people nor a free market economy. A dictatorship is envisaged, exercised by those “who know better”.
Those who think all of this is conspiracy theories should consider the World Economic Forum’s push on personal vehicles. The reason for the excitement is a July 18 article in which the World Economic Forum philosophizes about the circular economy model: “3 circular economy approaches to reduce demand for critical metals“.
While fact checkers are again trying to cover up, downplay or even deny the intentions of the WEF, it says in black and white: “1. Go from owning to using“. This means the clear recommendation that people should refrain from privately owning vehicles and instead use “car sharing” services.
This transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy requires large supplies of critical metals such as cobalt, lithium, nickel to name a few.
The World Economic Forum assumes that the slogan “towards renewable energies”, which was issued dictatorially and without democratic processes, also requires that people do without private vehicles, for example. You have to keep in mind that this desire for “renewable energies” is just a delusion, because bans on the use of wood as fuel are already in the starting blocks (Report24 reported).
Fox News’ main criticism of the WEF’s initiative is that its ideas might be applicable to Europe, where there is little space that many people share. Such theories would be completely inappropriate for the USA, where people would be lost, especially in rural regions without private vehicles.
However, other ideas of the WEF with regard to sustainability are also worth considering. So you can understand the article as a heated speech against planned obsolescence, i.e. the artificially induced short life of products. Huge amounts of resources could be saved globally if mobile phones or laptops lasted longer. One may – indeed one must – be vigilant and critical of the WEF and its arrogant plans – but the short lifespan of all products, which was deliberately caused by the greed of large corporations, is a big problem and inevitably leads to more exploitation of nature, throwaway mentality and senseless waste.
