In former days, when life was slower and calmer, a child would be told to pause at the roadside, to "Stop! Look! and Listen!" before proceeding to cross.
In a similar way Ernst Wolff's address to the Wachstum Erde Frieden Freiheit – (‘Growth’, ‘Earth’, ‘Peace’, ‘Freedom’) in Davos, Switzerland demands our full attention. Presented on 21st August 2021 and now available in German, with English subtitles, the speech is being widely circulated in print.
Whatever you may be doing, it is time to put it aside (Stop), look at the printed version (Read) and then to watch the recorded version (with English sub-titles) in the original German (Listen) before selecting some of the salient points to discuss with your circle of colleagues.
1. Uncovering the Corona Narrative. The title speaks volumes. We are being fed a pack of lies. The question is - why?
2. "Nothing happens accidentally in politics ..." The use of the word "alarming" is not OTT.
3. " ... problems are not being addressed and solved, but magnified and multiplied ... "
4. Note what is said about the "premeditated change of power in Afghanistan .."
5. The whole section on the power of the "digital-financial complex" gives much food for thought.
6. "The IT industry is nothing other than a tumour ... stands far above all governments ..."
7. In short ..." They will drive society into chaos in order to present the introduction of digital central bank money as the solution to all problems. Namely, in the form of a Universal Basic Income (UBI)."
The whole gives plenty of food for thought. There are no easy answers, no short cuts to easy solutions that would enable us to go back to the Old Normal of business as usual. But at least we have a basis for informed discussion.
