11. Post Pandemic Health
12. Fragmentation of Democratic Societies
13. Trade and Deglobalisation
No significant Google News-approved Western media outlets are reporting on it.
The most noteworthy person on the list most Americans wouldn’t recognize is probably arch-neocon Anne Applebaum, who has been organizing the US proxy war in Ukraine in concert with the Zelensky regime.
I can imagine her barking at Marin and Sinema behind closed doors about how they’re not doing enough to start World War III.
Peter Thiel appears to be the only prominent right-winger in attendance. He dumped $10 million into JD Vance’s Senate campaign in Ohio and another $10 million into Blake Masters’ Senate campaign in Arizona. Masters just secured Trump’s endorsement. JD Vance also secured Trump’s endorsement and managed to stage a come-from-behind victory in the Republican primary in Ohio last month.
I’m not sure what Thiel’s angle is. His 2016 RNC speech backing Trump and talking about “fake culture wars” completely missed the mark. Nonetheless, his candidates are saying all the right things to get elected.
Tucker Carlson clearly likes Thiel and has been shilling for both of his candidates.
Thiel was confronted at a Bilderberg meeting in 2016 by Luke Rudkowski and asked about what went on inside the meeting but only received a generic response.
“We need to be finding ways to talk to people you need to find ways to talk to people where not everything is completely transparent,” Thiel said. “Libertarianism is not synonymous with radical transparency, that’s often an argument that the Stasi would make in East Germany where everything had to be monitored by society. And I think often you have the best conversations in smaller groups where not everything is being monitored and that’s how you have very honest conversations and how you can think better about the future.”
