This week, the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting is being held in Davos, and some people are worried about the legitimacy of the appointed executives who will be there to debate and influence economic and social policies.
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and Twitter, and others have questioned the WEF’s efforts to transform economies and cultures in the name of tackling alleged global concerns.
Musk stated that the WEF was “evolving into an unelected global government that the people have never asked for and do not want.”
His remarks came in reaction to a video in which Klaus Schwab, the creator of the WEF, and other executives highlighted the group’s new “Global Collaboration Village” inside the Metaverse, a virtual environment being built by Meta, Facebook’s holding company.
Schwab provided the explanation that one may have faith in the village since the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) will be working together closely to assure safety.
In the past, Musk said that there may be an apparent “benefit” in having a platform like the WEF for the chiefs of business and governments to converse, but he also said that the group “does sorta give me the willies.””
After hearing about the WEF chairman’s demand to “master the future,” Schwab publicly criticized the statement, as reported by SpaceXMania.
Musk, who first said he thought it was important to have a venue for corporate and government leaders to interact, subsequently likened the WEF to 4chan, a website notorious for its contentious posts.
“What we really need is a game show that pits the strangest comments from 4chan and the World Economic Forum against one another. The latter is where I put my money,” he wrote.
