Elites pull off masks in Davos, but want them on you: The Amiable Skeptics featuring Adam Baldwin

Elites pull off masks in Davos, but want them on you: The Amiable Skeptics featuring Adam Baldwin

Once again, the World Economic Forum in Davos has plotted out their designs for ruling the world … and once again, the world mainly laughs. But should we? “These guys running around at Davos, eating caviar and drinking Cristal,” Adam Baldwin scoffs, “they want to master our future. I’ll tell you what,” Adam continues, “Buddy — get the hell out of our way.”

Welcome back to my VIP video series “The Amiable Skeptics,” featuring my friend Adam Baldwin! Adam is well-known for his long and storied Hollywood career, starting with My Bodyguard, and especially for his roles in Full Metal Jacket, Firefly, its film sequel SerenityChuck, and The Last Ship.

And be sure to pay that $450 a bottle tab out of your own pocket, too. (Does the WEF shop at Total Wine? Hmm.) The global elites descended on Davos in what could have been the Sturgis of private jets to lecture us on global warming/climate change. And not just to lecture us, but also to plan how to leverage state authority to dictate terms to Western nations, and not just on climate change policies either. Tony Blair, for instance, proposed digital global vaccination “libraries” for mandate enforcement for future pandemics, for instance. Blair also called for more robust mask mandates, despite a clear record of data now showing that mask mandates had no real impact on transmission, cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.

It’s the kind of feel-good idiocy that elite rule produces — bad assumptions, logical fallacies, and destructive policies that nevertheless allow the elite to maintain and expand their power. As Davos rolled on last week, we got yet another look at how that process works with the exposé from Reason’s Robby Soave about Facebook’s toadying for the CDC’s censorship brigade. It all raises the question about whether fascism is making a big comeback through constant “emergency” declarations, and whether we’re already down that road here in the US.

Adam and I may be a bit less amiable on this topic, but we’re as skeptical as ever about the Davos jet set. Enjoy the conversation and be sure to join it in the comments below.
