The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) annual meeting in Davos has long been derided as an excuse for global elites to party, hobnob, and plan their various schemes for social engineering and societal restructuring. The meeting also represents the height of hypocrisy, with thousands of attendees traveling via 1,500 private jets emitting astounding amounts of carbon dioxide, despite the WEF’s supposed goal of solving “the existential threat of climate change.” For example, according to a report by Greenpeace, the private jet emissions from Davos in 2022 alone were equal to those produced by 350,000 cars in one week–the same cars they are laser focused on replacing with electric vehicles.
And yet, the WEF’s hypocrisy does not end there. Reports have emerged that many Davos attendees hire prostitutes during their stay, despite the WEF’s commitments toward social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and equality. One of the many sex worker agencies (prostitution is legal in Switzerland) divulged it had received 11 reservations and 25 inquiries before the conference even started. Services are requested for a wide arrange of activities, including escorting individuals to dinner, paying by the hour for sexual services, or staying for an entire evening, which can cost a whopping $2,770.
In 2020, a report by The Times found that at least 100 prostitutes travel to Davos for the summit. One official driver for the forum said “he picked up one sex worker who claimed she had been forced by her ‘boss’ to sleep with an older client at a delegates’ hotel.”
Still, these elites continue to preach from their pulpits about the horrors of climate change and the travesties afflicting the disadvantaged in society. Hopefully, the rest of the world can begin to see that these elites are perpetuating the very “problems” they have vowed to combat. No one should take the advice of any WEF-affiliated person or entity seriously. It would be nice if the WEF and its cabal of oligarchs would simply leave the rest of us alone; society seems to work pretty well when it is not intentionally manipulated, divided, and taken advantage of by the rich and powerful.
