Elon Musk was invited to January’s World Economic Forum, but he publicly declared that he would not be attending because its agenda is boring. He also commented on how the billionaire elite falsely think there are too many people on our planet, and that the “environmental sustainability movement … has gone too far.” Debunking an argument that the population control agenda is just a “conspiracy theory,” Musk retorted that the elite indeed want and seek less human population. He pointed out that, “This is neither a ‘right’ nor a ‘left’ issue.”
People are viewed by many billionaires as a threat to their wealth and hoped-for power, while Musk and Donald Trump are special in welcoming all that the public has to offer. The billionaires who convene annually at Davos are a paranoid group who should be kept as far away from political influence as possible.
Meanwhile, news came during the second day of this conference that China’s population is actually shrinking, contrary to the fear-mongering about population growth. This is the first time since its famine more than sixty years ago that China is losing population, which a liberal New York Times headline screams is a “demographic crisis.”
China’s Vice Premier Liu He made no mention of its own demographic crisis during his speech at Davos. Instead, he urged the world to increase cooperation and depart from the Cold War approach, which means accepting that China has replaced the United States as the world’s only hegemonic superpower. Chinese leaders are unable to reverse the harm they inflicted on themselves by their one-child policy that for decades forced couples to limit their families. Chinese couples today do not want to have enough children to sustain its population, which is considered by experts to be an irreversible trend now.
This Chinese population crisis should be a lesson for us all in what happens when you try to tinker with God’s design for the family. China removed children from the family, and now they are suffering. Now the American left has made mothers and fathers optional by accepting gay marriage. Can we expect our social experiments to turn out any better than China’s? The World Economic Forum will have no answers here.
