WEF

In today’s #vatnik soup, I’ll be discussing one of the most resilient and widespread conspiracies out there: World Economic Forum (WEF), The Great Reset and the "New World Order".

Schwab has stated that his "4th Industrial Revolution" would blur the lines between real world and digital, and that it includes technologies such as AI, IoT & nanotechnology.

Based on Klaus’ vision, Danish MP Ida Auken (@IdaAuken) published an essay called ...

... "Welcome To 2030: I Own Nothing, Have No Privacy And Life Has Never Been Better" which emphasized the importance of sustainability through renting and borrowing instead of owning stuff in the near future.WEF also produced a video based on this essay.

It was a PR disaster, and it became one of the most widely spread "evidence" for the Great Reset conspiracy theory.

Snopes has traced the origins of this conspiracy to QAnon groups and the 8kun social media site. Russell Brand made a video on it:

One of the first countries where this conspiracy spread quickly was Canada. A British journalist Oliver Kamm has stated that the Great Reset conspiracy theory has been widely disseminated by Russian disinformation channels. It is especially popular on sites like 4chan.
