In 1971, when Schwab's WEF was just getting started, the New York Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) had already been operational for 50 years. David Rockefeller was CFR chairman (1970-85). Nixon was a former CFR member, and his admin was loaded with CFR members. Schwab's mentor Kissinger was a CFR member. Fed chair Burns was a CFR member. Treasury secretaries Kennedy and Shultz were CFR members. CIA director Helms was a CFR member. UN ambassador GHW Bush was a CFR member. It was also in 1971 when Rockefeller, Kissinger, and the CFR launched the buildup of mainland China.

The WEF is an interlocking node in the CFR network, which includes the major corporations, foundations and NGOs.

Fast forward to today. Billionaires Larry Fink (BlackRock), David Rubenstein (Carlyle) and Marc Benioff (Salesforce) are WEF trustees. Fink is a CFR director, Rubenstein is the CFR chairman, and Benioff who owns Time magazine is a CFR member. CFR members on the "Biden team" include the secretaries of State, Treasury, Defense, Commerce and Homeland Security. Also the Fed chairman, CIA director, ambassador to China, and dozens more.

Here's a recent article on Kissinger, Schwab, and the origins of the WEF: https://unlimitedhangout.com/2022/03/investigative-reports/dr-klaus-schwab-or-how-the-cfr-taught-me-to-stop-worrying-and-love-the-bomb/

The 1971- 1973 period certainly seems to be the unofficial end of the American Empire, with 1969 moon landings (true or fake is not the point) being in the rear view mirror. The Arab Oil embargo of 1973 was apparently encouraged and organized by Kissinger. Here at home, Canada was taken off a domestic finance policy in 1974. The Bank of Canada rented near zero interest rate money to municipalities in the post war era, which provided all the infrastructure, and Universities that dot the land. This anomaly had to be erased, Canada was the only Western country that was keeping the usury inside the system, then deleting it. As ex cabinet minister Paul Hellyer said, the role of the BoC to help Canada was shelved in 1974, and thence forward our currency was rented at high cost and perpetual debt "from the New York banks". Thank you Mr. Trudeau.

I started writing here Sheldon, just as an enquiry about the 1971 gold thing. From my perspective the 1913 event was more pivotal. In 20 short years, the US was facing bankruptcy and gold was being confiscated by 1933. The 1914 war was over but the 1939 one was looming. I appreciate fully that the WEF, along with the Trilateral Commission was bringing on globalism one step at a time. Getting rid of gold begat the digital currency era, but I am skeptical if gold was really the magic rescue pill back then or now. I can elaborate.
