World Economic Forum’s cyborg guru really has lost the plot
By TONY MOBILIFONITIS
The Israeli man Barack Obama calls “The Prophet”, Yuval Noah Harari of the World Economic Forum, would not not qualify for that title under the religious and historical standards of his own culture.
For one thing, no prophet that we know of was a gay atheist, like Harari. To be fair, he is known as a best-selling technological author and “futurist”. The latter title arises from the fact that he’s a spruiker of global technocracy and some unoriginal ideas about how human beings can be hooked into biological sensors placed under the skin with their brains linked to the internet.
Harari is fearful of technology and the reality that it will replace millions of jobs and his solution is to merge humans and that technology under the Great Reset/Agenda 20-30 banner. The idea is severely lacking in ethics and understanding of humanity’s divine origins – the concept of Imago Viva Dei (Image of the Living God).
“If you know enough biology and have enough computing power and data, you can hack my body and my brain and my life, and you can understand me better than I understand myself … But soon at least some corporations and governments will be able to systematically hack all the people. We humans should get used to the idea that we are no longer mysterious souls – we are now hackable animals. That’s what we are,” Harari told the Davos (WEF) 2020 gathering.
Harari calls the historical gospel accounts of Jesus “fake news” (which implies he discounts the entirety of the Hebrew Old Testament prophets who foretold the coming Messiah) and he can only see a future of humans achieving god-like status by being merged with technology i.e. transhuman cyborgs with brains “enhanced” by AI microchips.
He is also a historian and a professor in the Department of History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is the author of Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow, and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century.
But if Harari was a historian with some integrity, he would at least acknowledge the historical connections between the Old and New Testament and the historical accounts of Jesus, his death and resurrection, and the rise of the early church as recorded by both Roman and Jewish historians like Tacitus and Josephus.
Harari and the WEF are also propagating a devious system of political control on business called ESG – environment, social and corporate governance. It’s simply a western adaptation of the Chinese social credit system and set in motion the totalitarian, Orwellian group think disease spreading through corporations and governments.
But not everyone is buying this system or Harari’s future scenarios. Tesla owner Elon Musk for instance, has denounced ESG as “the devil incarnate”. ESG rates Musk’s company Tesla, the maker of electric vehicles, as moderate to poor. It was set up allegedly to help people “invest responsibly” and company boards dominated by millennials with little understanding of political history, jumped on the idea as virtue signalling and “good PR”.
Not only does “Prophet” Harari, meanwhile, have no faith in God, he has no faith in mankind’s ability to adapt to an economy where many things are made and processed by machines. When you think about it, a lifetime largely spent endlessly repeating menial tasks in a factory or office for a basic wage is not only unfulfilling but unecessary.
Technological innovation will eventually make energy a free, or relatively inexpensive commodity that can be generated by every household. It will also allow the vast expanses of uninhabitable parts of the planet like the Arctic or Sahara to be more easily populated. Already, water can be tapped from the atmosphere for desert areas while heat for homes and crops can be generated in cold regions.
But Harari’s ideas and those of his boss Klaus Schwarz, are based on irrational fear of the future and a lack of reality in respect to real economics. The future, according to economist Zoltan Poszar of Credit Suisse Bank, is in commodity-backed currencies. The dominating global slush fund of US dollars (“financialism”) is on the way out and a new system based on commodities, real wealth, is on the rise. He calls it Bretton Woods III.
One of the drivers of this new system is Russia, which is demanding that European importers of its energy pay in roubles and not in dollars. This is a direct challenge to the dollar’s role and Russia knows very well the Europeans cannot afford to switch off their energy supply. What Putin is doing with oil and the rouble is what the US did with Saudi Arabia when they pegged it to the dollar.
WEF’s “green vision”, of course, wants to get rid of fossil fuel. But this plan is also on shaky ground. Europeans know, but seldom admit, that their wind and solar farms simply don’t supply reliable, cost effective energy, especially in their cold winters. But Harari and the WEF are transfixed on their so-called global climate crisis and their utopian pipe dream solution of a carbon-free economy.
Given this circle of delusional characters who run the WEF and big tech and peddle their ideas to corporations and governments worldwide, it’s no wonder the world is in the crisis it is.
Harari says the ultimate power that Stalin and other dictators longed for “is now within reach”. He warns against this totalitarian threat, but his solution of turning human beings into cyborgs is hardly an alternative.
He even suggests that the future corporate state being able to literally monitor the emotions and health of the populace with under-skin technology would be a valid public health measure against new pandemics. Oh yes, we can see the old “pandemic” narrative is most useful for those hell-bent on controlling the population.
If Stalin had this sort of technology, says Harari, he could have monitored who was not affectionately obedient to him. We now know that such technology is half a step away from being imposed on the population of China by the Communist Party rulers. Already the Chinese are monitored on a massive scale with facial recognition technology that tracks even their buying habits.
Is it any wonder that Harari and his Davos crowd are losing ground. Their ideas are being exposed and attacked everywhere, and so they should be. Kudos to mainstream politicians like Senator Alex Antic and others who have done just that, exposing Australia’s so-called “Young Global Leaders” i.e. the “graduates” of the WEF like Health Minister Greg Hunt and Greens Senator Hanson-Young.
