Op-Ed: 21st Century Robber Barons: the WEFBy Brian Parsons • January 1, 2023
“To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.” – C.S. Lewis
In the 1870s, the term “robber baron” was first used to describe an exploitative class of industrialists who utilized their wealth to create monopolies of resources and amass control in the fledgling United States. The name describes an illegitimate aristocracy of unelected plutocrats. John D. Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie; all American industrial royalty whose names line the streets of America and the pages of our history books. One hundred fifty years later, we face a new global class of robber barons.
Once a year, the world’s richest and most influential people meet behind closed doors in Davos, Switzerland, to discuss the future direction of the globe. Known as the World Economic Forum, they were originally founded in 1971 by German engineer Klaus Schwab. Look at any major global policy push in recent history, and you’ll likely find the fingerprints of the World Economic Forum. From climate alarmism to ESG investing to our obsession with sustainability and population control or a push for centralized and authoritarian government, we find the handiwork of the World Economic Forum.
Earlier this year, a video surfaced of Mr. Schwab in 2017, openly bragging about infiltrating the cabinets of major governments worldwide by grooming a class of Young Global Leaders, including Angela Merkel of Germany, Justin Trudeau of Canada, and even Vladimir Putin. The World Economic Forum describes its Young Global Leaders program as “an accelerator for a dynamic community of exceptional people with the vision, courage, and influence to drive positive change in the world.” It is doubtful that their vision for positive change aligns with that of the plebian class, but they aren’t too concerned with that. In 2016, they told us in Forbes magazine that soon we would own nothing, have no privacy, and we would learn to like it.
The World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders collective is a veritable who’s-who of politicians, tech titans, corporate executives, philanthropists, celebrities, and financiers worldwide. You don’t have to look far to find their influence. In the United States, we find their people in finance at organizations like Blackrock, Blackstone, Goldman Sachs, CitiBank, and Mastercard. In technology, we find their people at Facebook, Google, Wikipedia, Microsoft, Amazon, and more. In the media, they’re at Fox, CNN, CBS, Forbes, Bloomberg, the NY Times, and the Washington Post. In government, they hold governorships, congressional seats, mayorships, federal cabinet positions, and more. At the universities, they’re presidents, faculty, lecturers, and researchers. There is no sector they do not touch.
Every extreme policy push in America of the last five years overlaps with the objectives and people of the World Economic Forum. The neo-Marxist Critical Race Theory push following the death of George Floyd? Ibram X. Kendi is a Young Global Leader. Environmental Social Governance investing? The World Economic Forum counts dozens of ESG executives from financial firms among its members. Financial firms like Blackrock outbidding residential home buyers for residential properties? This aligns with their objective to create a tenant class. Visa, Mastercard, and American Express pushing for a backdoor gun registry in the U.S.? All WEF partners as well.
In 2020, President Donald Trump was invited to speak at Davos for what can only be described as an opportunity to put a face to the enemy and embolden the modern robber barons. He spoke openly of the need to reject the doomsday prophets of the World Economic Forum and emulate America First’s successes. By all accounts, they are a doomsday cult of the world’s most influential leaders, and this was likely a part of their unfolding plan to depose him.
Following the 2020 election, brazen conspirators described their organization’s work in overthrowing Donald Trump in a TIME Magazine piece, in which they described their work as “fortifying democracy.” They detailed their structure as a bipartisan effort of media, technology, government, and corporate interests. In 2018, TIME was purchased by Marc Benioff, co-founder and CEO of Salesforce.com and World Economic Forum Young Global Leader. Does this sound familiar? Without outing themselves directly, it sure sounds like the World Economic Forum is that cabal, and their history demonstrates their intent.
In 2016, when the outgoing Obama Administration participated in surveillance of the incoming Trump Administration, it was U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power who was caught unmasking the communications of Trump transition team officials. She’s a Young Global Leader. From John Durham’s special counsel investigation, it was found that during Russiagate, the Georgia Institute of Technology was tasked with surveilling the internet traffic of the White House. Their current president, Angel Cabrera, the former chair of their board of advisors, is a Young Global Leader.
COVID-19 was the pretext for hijacking American elections and ousting Donald Trump, and every piece of the global pandemic response touched the World Economic Forum. In October 2019, Johns Hopkins University and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation ran coronavirus pandemic modeling exercises at Event201 several weeks before COVID dropped in Wuhan, China. Both organizations are partners of the World Economic Forum and are full of Young Global Leaders.
The U.S. COVID response was predicated on vaccines and only vaccines being a solution, to the point of demonizing even the testing of off-label therapeutics. It was Pfizer who got the green light with falsely touted ninety-five percent effective COVID shots. Pfizer is a partner of the World Economic Forum and is represented by Young Global Leaders. When they withheld their promising but false study results until the day after the 2020 election, it was clear the intent was to end Donald Trump’s re-election chances.
The insanity of the past half-decade is most aptly described as shock and awe. Shock and awe is an offensive warfare tactic that describes an assault from all angles that does not permit the opponent a chance to mount a defense because they are spread thin across all fronts. Shock and awe is disorienting and does not allow one to discern who or what is coming at them. Now that the dust has settled, it is clear that few, if any, global organizations have the capacity, the reach, and the motivation of the World Economic Forum to perpetrate the shock and awe we’ve experienced. No free state can tolerate its continued existence.

Our politicians, government employees and the military are accomplices in this theft of freedoms and liberties and bankrupting the nations of the Earth. They are criminals and the enemy of The United States.
The most devastating criminals, and as of yet not brought to justice, enemies of this state reside in the medical establishment that has destroyed our well care system, virtually lost all the citizenry’s trust in them, and continue to follow one world order tactics.
HOW CAN ANYONE TRUST A MEDICAL SYSTEM THAT:
1.) Still enforces a unproven and useless mask policy?
2.) Used a Remdesivir and Ventilator protocol that killed many among us and to date not one administrator, CDH official or politician has been prosecuted?
3.) Still pushes the Death Jab that continues to harm innocent people?
4.) Does not allow bed side patient advocacy?
Prosecute and remove their Non-Profit status now.
How about an expose next on Young Global Leaders in prominent positions in Idaho.
Too late! They’re here. And Little leads the pack.
Thanks for your comment. This is a little more challenging as they don’t list their members by state, but by company. A quick look at their corporate partners and they have all sorts of presence in Idaho, from Meta Corporation, to Bayer, to any number of financial institutions.
I would like to know ALL those in our fair state who have affiliations with the WEF. I know Little was President of the Western Governors Assoc who had or has a partnership with the WEF.
Great idea, Lloyd. A good first step to root out the RINOs, I.D. the traitors, and perhaps keep Idaho free. Wouldn’t it be amazing to see RINO Little have to duplicate here everything DeSantis is doing in Florida? 49 to 1 right now, folks. Divided we fall ……
DeSantis’ performance is middle of the pack at best. Don’t fall for the dog and pony show. Little signed indoctrination bans, abortion bans, permitless carry extensions, tax rebates, election reforms, even more than DeSantis. Doesn’t make him particularly conservative. He just signs what the legislature puts in front of him. DeSantis is a media creation.
EXCELLENT article Brian! Thank you.
Lloyd…..what a great idea you have! I sure hope Brian Parsons is reading the comment section.
These people need to be EXPOSED!
I did see the comment. Thanks for reading!
Accurate portrayal of the WEF
And lest we forget, the CFR is the US local version; it is they who “select” our presidents. They are not actually elected.
An excellent article! Many could learn from reading and UNDERSTANDING it’s content, It’s too bad many Americans don’t comprehend the danger of losing our freedoms to these power hungry individuals. ,
While you have made many truthful and interesting observations about the young global leadership and the WEF you have totally forgotten to include what has been happening in our own state. Conservative Idaho has been transitioning for the past 20 years into a state controlled by the elite’s corporate oligarchs who have taken over through their lobbying and campaign contributions the entire bureaucracy of our state. This organization is very much the same as the WEF just on a smaller scale and they are known as the Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry or IACI. This group have been tightening their grip on our state for 2 decades and unfortunately the voters have yet to recognize that the fox is in the hen house. Even the newbies who have just arrived from California, Washington and Oregon don’t recognize the gators who infest our Boise swamp which was clearly shown in our last election. It takes a long time to transition a state as conservative as Idaho into a bastion for moderates who are just happy to have a modicum of conservatism compared to where they left. They don’t recognize the changes that have taken place so they are willing to compromise many of their values and move to a place like Idaho which may not be all that red anymore but certainly is better than where they came from. Until the people wake up and the rural Idahoan’s begin to exercise there right to vote we will continue to head down the road to perdition because Idaho has become a melting pot. Unfortunately those who are moving in are not as conservative as they think. We have our own WEF right here in the Reddest of the Red States and it is called IACI. Keep in mind that our current governor used to be the chairman of this organization which continues to reach out and control every aspect of our lives through the huge corporate entities they control. “Beware what you ask for you may just get it.” “We get the Government We Deserve”.
We’re making inroads. We have increased our conservative majority in the legislature and put a stellar party leader at the helm in Dorothy Moon. Thanks for reading. Fight on!
Making Inroads? We’ve barely found the Gate, let alone the Key. Idaho politics is a disaster.
Have you lived outside of Idaho? You still have a say here. The grassroots put Dorothy in charge of the GOP. She’s doing great work. Get involved where you can and fight on. We won’t advance our cause sitting around and grumbling.
First, thanks Brian for your articles, they are always enlightening!
As for living outside of Idaho, I’ve lived all over the country, some of it while I was in the Army many years ago. You are correct, there’s still a say here, but we need to understand that there’s nothing to say when we don’t know the whole story. If the media stifles this type of information that you’ve posted here, where do the rest of the state’s citizens get informed? Sad to say, but I highly doubt we have even 1% of the population in Idaho reading the Idaho Dispatch!
I continue to say it, because I believe this to be true. The mainstream media has to change before we can ever advance our “cause”. Without your type of educational journalism in the mainstream media, 99% of this state is clueless on what’s really going on in our own back yard. There are just too few outlets of non-biased information for folks to learn the gravity of these issues and their impacts on our personal lives.
Thanks for reading.
100% Correct! This Cabal or SPECTRE, if you will….is very real, very dangerous and very intent on what you have described. And we need to identify ALL of its overt and covert minions and pushers and leaders here in Idaho.
