Finishing school for globalists

A look at some of those who have passed through World Economic Forum education programmes such as “Global Leaders for Tomorrow”, set up in 1992 and renamed “Young Global Leaders’’ in 2004, might explain why what is happening today has the look of being well coordinated. Because it is.

The 1,300 graduates of this programme include Angela Merkel, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Nicolas Sarkozy, Emmanuel Macron, Jean-Claude Juncker and Jacinda Ardern, not forgetting Jens Spahn (the now-ousted German health minister – he of “Germans will be ‘vaccinated, cured or dead’ by the end of this winter” fame). And Annalena Baerbock, Germany’s new foreign minister and joint leader of its Green Party – on record as calling for a more aggressive stance towards Russia and China.

Anyone who wants to become a Young Global Leader must pass a rigorous selection process to prove they are of the right calibre to be the WEF’s mouthpieces. To help facilitate this, WEF founded another institution: the Global Shapers Community – people under the age of 30 from across the world previously identified as having leadership potential. Some 10,000 participants have passed through the programme.
