Klaus Schwab Steps Down From WEF! Is His Replacement Worse?

Written by Johnathan Parker.

Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), has decided to step down from his executive role. He plans to become a non-executive chairman in 2025, pending approval by the Swiss government. Schwab will still be involved, but not in the same capacity.

A spokesperson for the Forum stated that the organization is “transforming from a convening platform to the leading global institution for public-private cooperation.” This change in direction means that the WEF’s governance structure will also change. Schwab “will transition from Executive Chairman to Chairman of the Board of Trustees” by January 2025.

Although Schwab hasn’t named his successor, he mentioned that the executive board, led by President Børge Brende, has taken full executive responsibility over the past year.

Who is Børge Brende?

Børge Brende is a former Norwegian conservative leader from a country with a population of 5.4 million people. Now, he gets to lead us into their New World Order. In Norway, a conservative might still support many left-leaning policies, especially on the global stage.

In recent discussions, Brende and others have emphasized adapting old institutions to fit this New World Order. Their plans include significant changes to how global governance operates. Brende’s role at WEF will likely continue this agenda, impacting how countries and companies interact on a global scale.

What Should We Expect?

Klaus Schwab has made some bold statements about the future. He believes that mastering technology will give someone control over the world. He said, “We have the means to impose the state of the world.” This means that those who control technology and information will shape the future.

Schwab emphasized two conditions for this new future. First, he said, “we react all as stakeholders of larger communities, so we serve not our only self-interests, but we serve the community.” This means putting community needs above personal gain. Second, he stressed the importance of collaboration. In simpler terms, while the powerful make decisions, they expect everyone else to cooperate.

Our Take

The transition of leadership at the World Economic Forum from Klaus Schwab to a new structure under Børge Brende is concerning. The WEF’s vision for the future seems to involve significant control over technology and a push for global cooperation that might overlook individual freedoms and national sovereignty.

This shift in leadership could lead to more centralized control, where a few influential figures make decisions impacting everyone. The emphasis on public-private cooperation sounds beneficial, but it could also mean more power for big corporations and less for ordinary citizens.

The idea of adapting old institutions to fit a New World Order might strip away long-standing values and systems that have served us well. As these changes unfold, it’s crucial to remain vigilant and ensure that our voices are heard in this global conversation.
