- At the World Economic Forum (WEF) 2023 annual meeting, countering misinformation is a key agenda
- WEF claims a “wide range of actors with access to sophisticated technology and weaponry, as well as an ever-increasing capacity to spread misinformation” are a threat
- WEF hasn’t defined the misinformation it’s targeting, but it likely includes criticism of the WEF and challenges to mainstream COVID-19 narratives
- In 2022, WEF held Sustainable Development Impact Meetings that also featured panels on “tackling disinformation”
- Among the participants were the United Nations, which noted it had partnered with Big Tech giants like Google and TikTok to censor the narrative on environmental issues and COVID-19

The World Economic Forum (WEF) rings in the New Year with its annual meeting, held in Davos, Switzerland, each January. The meeting “will convene leaders from government, business and civil society to address the state of the world and discuss priorities for the year ahead,” according to WEF.1
In 2023, the theme is “cooperation in a fragmented world,” with WEF noting, “The world today is at a critical inflection point. The sheer number of ongoing crises calls for bold collective action.”2 What will this bold collective action entail? A key theme being discussed at one of its sessions is countering “misinformation,”3 also known as silencing and censoring any and all opposition.
WEF Plots to Censor ‘Misinformation’
WEF is an unelected global organization with self-appointed leaders. How it intends to define the misinformation it’s targeting as one of its key 2023 initiatives is unknown, but it’s dubbed the “cumulative ‘threats’ black swan events.” In a description for its Countering Threats in the Age of Black Swans session, it’s noted:4
“As black swan events proliferate, threats that were once considered outliers are becoming commonplace. This is compounded by a wide range of actors with access to sophisticated technology and weaponry, as well as an ever-increasing capacity to spread misinformation. How can we begin to predict the unpredictable in mitigating and countering security threats from black swan events?”
In December 2022, WEF already started damage control for its Davos meeting, stating in a separate post that it has “weathered criticism as a gathering of elites and in recent years the Forum has been targeted by disinformation campaigns.”5 As Reclaim the Net noted, this suggests the “group deems criticism of the WEF and challenging mainstream Covid-19 narratives to be misinformation.”6
It’s well-known fact that the world’s elite hop into their private jets and descend upon Davos, Switzerland, the highest town in the country,7 known for its luxury ski resorts, in order to attend WEF’s annual meeting, also known simply as the Davos Forum or just Davos.
To even attend the WEF annual meeting, you must be privately invited or a member of WEF, which costs $65,000 to $650,000.8 The attendance badge for the meeting is extra and cost another $27,000 — in 2020 — just to get entrance to the conference.9 So who’s in attendance? As comedian JP Sears put it in 2022:10
“You’ll be excited to hear that the lineup of World Economic Forum’s speakers at their annual gathering of elites in Davos included such benevolent humanitarians like Xi Jinping, the leader of the Chinese Communist Party, who’s currently committing genocide, and Tony Fauci, who’s arguably involved in crimes against humanity, and Bill Gates, who’s arguably involved in crimes against humanity, and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who’s arguably currently involved in crimes against humanity. What a great line up!”
WEF Wants to Keep Their Dirty Dealings a Secret
The irony of the world’s elite flying in on their private jets to discuss sustainability is an open target for criticism. In 2018, for instance, more than 1,000 private jets and helicopters similarly made their way to Davos, and in 2017, an estimated 200 private flights landed in the city each day during the event.11
By 2050, it’s estimated that aviation will contribute 22% of global carbon emissions. Still, in 2019, more than 600 private planes arrived at the Davos Forum, and that doesn’t include the military planes that transported an additional 60 presidents and prime ministers.12 In 2020, a “steady stream” of private planes again chauffeured the elite to Davos.13
But we needn’t worry about this indulgence of the upper classes at the expense of the environment, according to WEF. “Offering little self-awareness, leaders of the WEF claim that the jet-set class promises to purchase carbon credits to offset the emissions from their planes,” Forbes noted.14
This is yet another strategy of the technocratic elite to set up a new wave of colonization in the name of sustainability and “net zero” carbon emissions — but, if WEF has anything to say about it, they’ll label this as misinformation and wipe it clean off the net.
Klaus Schwab, owner and chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), is the personification of the Great Reset — the ultimate goal of which is to do away with the democratic process and give all ownership and control to the deep state — and the technocratic elite who control it. Sears dubbed him among the most dangerous people in the world.15
