Globalisation, The Davosocracy and the Pushback

French writer and political philosopher Renaud Camus, who found fame (or notoriety perhaps,) as the first academic to propose the theory of the “Great Replacement (link goes to French language video),” aired his thoughts to news reporters about the wave of riots and civil unrest that has rocked France over the past two months, giving his opinion that the recent “Yellow Vest” protests are a grassroots reaction against the Davos elite who view working people as worthless “human Nutella.” (i.e. cheap, low grade products.) …

Mr Camus warned there might be more substance to the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests) movement, which organised the protests and, according to polls, is supported by 77 per cent of French people , than just dissatisfaction over a rise in fuel taxes, saying it was really about a “lack of respect by governments for the prople, being treated by managerial politics like an object, a simple product.

“A product, a producer, and a consumer all at once, a thing, a number, not a human being,” Camus said, echoing his view that the elite do noy see the masses as people, individuals with ambitions, concerns and their own intelligent view of the world. This attitude, he claims, is how elitists justify to themselves the destruction of communities as entire industries have been relocated to low labour cost economies, leaving behind what is usually described as ‘the gig economy,’ but which some have described as the ‘waiters and bartenders economy,’ because of the low quality and often part time work available to people rendered redundant as work has migrated east and south, while low skilled, poorly educated multitudes have migrated north and west.

Excoriating the globalist elites, whom Camus refers to as the “Davocracy,” an allusion to the annual World Economic Forum meetings in the Swiss town of Davos, where the rich and powerful arrive in their private jets to meet, enjoy fine foods, rare wines and high class prostitutes and make decisions like the one that is leading to the replacement of educated, intelligent Europeans who ask difficult questions with uneducated, illiterate third world immigrants who can easily be bought with free stuff, Camus claimed the global elites were advocates of the “Great Replacement” saying they supported “the change of people and civilisation for the sake of the industry of man, the economic system which produces the Undifferentiated Human Matter, the human Nutella, spreadable at will.”

Harsh words from Camus, but they contain more than a grain of truth one suspects.

The theory of the Great Replacement, which Camus states. not only refers to mass migration but to the easy and efficient interchangeability of goods as well as peoples (aka the throwaway society,) has been referred to by several prominent French figures including the Mayor of Béziers Robert Ménard, the Archbishop of Strasbourg Luc Ravel, and conservative politician Nicolas Dupont-Aignan.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has also made numerous references to a replacement of European people through migration, and has been widely attacked for his views by Cultural Marxist leaders leaders such as Barack Obama, Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron.

More recently, the French department of Mayotte, an island off the coast of Africa, highlighted the “replacement” of their indigenous peoples due to wave upon wave of illegal migrants in recent years. The first European outpost to be totally swamped by illegal immigrants might have been the Italian island of Lampedusa, had the nationalist coalition of Lega and Five Star not dealth a crushing defeat to the neo — liberal consensus parties of the Italian establishment in last years election.

It is happening in mainland France, Germany, Britain, Sweden, Netherlands, Belgium, and Spain. Only Italy, Hungary, Austria and Poland have so far shown and will to resist.

The developed world’s political and business elite, who roll up every year to attend the annual World Economic Forum (WEF) jamboree in Davos, Switzerland, are actually beginning to admit their push for globalisation and open bordershich with the help of leaders like Angela Merkel, Barack Obama, François Holland and hs successor Emmanuel Macron, have contributed to the worldwide populist backlash and the rejection of the mass integration and multiculturalism project, the aim of which was to create a global monoculture.

Harvard professor and former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund Kenneth Rogoff told Bloomberg that following WEF 2016 he “started to grow concerned” then-candidate Donald J. Trump would be elected president of the U.S.A. because the consensus among attendees of the elite gathering Mr. Trump could not possibly win.

“A joke I’ve told 1,000 people in the months since attending that years World Economic Forum is that the conventional wisdom of Davos is always wrong,” wisecracked the former IMF chief who is scheduled to attend Davos again this year along with some 3,000 other members of the political, business, media, and academic elite, most of whom are the same people that so confidently agreed Trump could not win the 2016 Presidential election.

“No matter how improbable, the event most likely to happen is the opposite of whatever the Davos consensus is,” he added.

Davos also failed to predict the rise of populism in Europe, Italy’s rejection of constitutional change that led to the resignation of Prime Minister Mattheo Renzi, or the UK voting to leave the European Union (EU) which Forbes described as the “populist revolt against Davos Man”.

“Davos Man” was coined by political scientist Samuel P. Huntington who described “these transnationals” as “[having] little need for national loyalty, view national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the elite’s global operations”.

One of the eight Oxford University academics set to attend the meeting, Ngaire Woods, dean of the Blavatnik School of Government, said, “There has to be some humility. For 30 years the elite have said, ‘We’re managing globalization, and we’re making it work for everyone’.”

“They cannot just keep repeating that,” added the frequent Davos visitor.

However, WEF founder Klaus Shwab has alleged that globalisation was an “easy scapegoat” for world angst, and argued that populism wasn’t the answer, saying, “We cannot just have populist solutions”.

With populism high on the agenda at Davos, one of the sessions will include a panel of psychologists offering thoughts on “cultivating appropriate emotions in a time of nationalist populism”.

Managing Director of the IMF Christine Lagarde, who was found guilty by French courts in December 2017 of criminal negligence in a case concerning the misappropriation of funds, said she wanted to “rehabilitate the appearance of globalism”. She said she wanted a “move toward globalization that has a different face, and which is not excluding people along the way”.

Lagarde will be chairing a session at Davos entitled: “Squeezed and Angry: How to Fix the Middle Class Crisis” along with hedge fund billionaire Ray Dalio. Days before the EU referendum vote, the French lawyer belittled Brexit voters by implying they were small-minded, called for a “united Europe”, and launched a report claiming a ‘Leave’ vote would lead to half a million job losses.

Also anticipated to attend the exclusive conclave is billionaire open borders activist and founder of the Open Society Foundations George Soros, who admitted involvement in engineering Europe’s Migrant Crisis, called national borders “an obstacle”, and has financial ties to the W. K. Kellogg Foundation.

Other notable attendees include a dozen members of the European Commission including Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström, who responded,“I do not take my mandate from the European people” when asked a question by a poverty campaigner regarding the unpopular (and now abandoned,) Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) deal between America and the EU, which was opposed by millions of Europeans.

The World Economic Forum (or the junior Bilderberg Group as some call it) held their annual jolly conference at the exclusive Alpine resort of Davos-Klosters where it will cost you €20 (about$22) for a cup of coffee because the locals have to keep chavs out somehow. Two thousand five hundred politicians, celebrities, and business leaders from all over the world gather every year for this “Bilderberg style” meeting. The delegates include 53 people who own as much wealth as the poorest half of the world’s population and representatives of over 1,000 of the multinational corporate businesses all of which are on record as supporting global government and open borders.

One of the most significant discussions held at this year’s Davos powerfest concerned the growing disconnect between middle and working class citizens and the power elites. Everywhere in the world one looks, citizens no longer trust their governments or the legal, medical and academic professions, the science & technology community, finance and the mainstream media:

“If this growing disconnect between governments and citizens is not fixed rapidly, there can be no legitimate, accountable and trusted global cooperation, problem solving or governance.” — WEF Everybody’s Business Report.

And so what have they done? In collaboration with Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon and other internet giants our governments and business elites have embraced the idea of using censorship to suppress ideas and opinions which challenge the official narrative. A UK government promotion, The Integrity Initiative has been exposed as working to ensure any item expressing support for the Assad regime in Syria, or criticising military interventions aimed at effecting ‘regime change’ are made invisible by blocking them in internet searches, ‘shadow — banning’ the content posted by certain organisations and individuals and rather than promoting the truth, which in the case of Syria is that bad as the Assad regime may be, what would replace them, as ISIS have shown, would be even worse, actively suppressing accurate reporting in the public domain and replacing it with politically convenient misinformation.

In their minds of course, we the punters are far too stupid to see through such a ruse and will accept what we are being told and allow the globalisation project to continue unchecked.
