They are “improving the state of the world” in Davos. Really! No kidding?

For over four decades, the World Economic Forum’s mission – improving the state of the world – has driven the design and development of the Annual Meeting programme.”

“Over 2,500 leaders from business, government, international organizations, civil society, academia, media and the arts will participate in the 46th Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, on 20-23 January [2016].”

This gathering of the “elites,” in Davos, should surely make ordinary people ask this question: Are these people really “improving the state of the world.”? Some banks listed as Davos “partners” have been accused of “money laundering” and other scandals. A number of “governments” represented at Davos, invaded and bombed countries, in “illegal” wars, and reduced these countries, and their cities and homes to smoking rubble. Millions of people are dead, millions are in refugee camps, soldiers are dead or maimed many children have lost parents and others have drowned in the waters of the Mediterranean trying to escape from these hellish wars. Therefore, should we be asking the question, do we have: “war criminals at large”? In fact, some former political leaders that attended Davos, have reportedly been called “war criminals.”

Leaders from the “business” world are also participants in Davos over the years. Some of their multi-national corporate conglomerates make bloodstained profits from the war business. It would be nice to see a detailed report on all those profiting from the carnage of “illegal” wars. But don’t expect the corporate controlled media (some attend Davos) to do this. Instead one has to ask, “Are the corporate media and others covering up the treachery of the war criminals”?

“The Western leaders and media stay silent about the military intervention and regime change, interventions that have torn the refugees’ homelands apart and resulted in civil war, state collapse and extremely violent conditions lasting for long periods.” James Paul, September 16, 2015.

The criminality of many of the “elites,” many years ago, resulted in prosecutions at the Nuremberg Trials.
“The Nuremberg trials were a series of trials held between 1945 and 1949 in which the Allies prosecuted German military leaders, political officials, industrialists, and financiers for crimes they had committed during World War II.”

Endless “illegal” wars are being perpetrated today, yet the crimes of the perpetrators go unpunished. Numerous countries are invaded, decimated and destroyed. Millions of people are dead, millions are in refugee camps and millions of dollars are being made in blood soaked profits from the carnage created by this ‘industry of death.’
Pope Francis decries the arms trade as the “industry of death”

One wonders what kinds of sick and perverted minds can invent, produce and hold arms bazaars around the world to promote, market, and praise their hellish products.
Should we call these “business men” and governments, “the ghouls of the earth?”  Though some politicians and establishment types say their killing business, oops I mean weapons business “creates jobs.” These “jobs” are surely a sign of societal decay and depravity, and, Pope Francis was right on the mark, when he called the “arms trade” the ‘industry of death.’

Almost daily on the TV news one can see huge numbers of terrified and distraught men, women and children fleeing for their lives. Some of them are trying to escape from ISIS, which according to numerous reports (not in the corporate monopoly media) but, from other sources say that “Western governments” are allied with terrorist groups

“Our allies are up to their necks in complicity with terrorism, but as long as there is money to be made and weapons to sell, our rulers’ lips will remain stubbornly sealed.” Owen Jones, the Guardian, U.K. August 31, 2014.

In closing one has to ask: Are the “elites” in Davos really “improving the state of the world.”? Or are the dispossessed of this world suffering from the actions of some of the devotees of Davos?

“Davos people control virtually all international institutions, many of the world’s governments, and the bulk of the world’s economic and military capabilities.” - Samuel P. Huntington
