The UBER Files & Their Connection To The World Economic Forum. This Is Really About "The Shared Economy" & Owning Nothing. No Cars, No Property.
Sometimes you speed read a BBC article that you see on Twitter and don’t think much of it but then something in it stands out. This was exactly the case when I read about the Uber Files and how a $90m-a-year lobbying and public relations effort recruited friendly politicians to help in its campaign to disrupt Europe's taxi industry.
“Uber Files: Massive leak reveals how top politicians secretly helped Uber”
You are about to read what the MSM won’t tell you. It’s just a case of joining up the dots and being a critical thinker rather than a conspiracy theorist. Let’s crack on.
The Uber Files, were obtained by the Guardian newspaper and shared with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and other media partners, including The Irish Times. The cache includes emails, text messages and other documents from 2013 to 2017, when Uber was barging into cities in defiance of local laws and regulations, dodging taxes and seeking to grind into submission the taxi industry, most prominently, but also trade union activists.
I hopped across to the Guardian to see what they had to say with their article
“Uber broke laws, duped police and secretly lobbied governments, leak reveals”
Here are the two paragraphs in the article that grabbed my attention.
Whenever the World Economic Forum are mentioned you can be pretty damn sure that something nefarious is at work. I hopped across to The Irish Times and it got even more interesting. The World Economic Forum was mentioned again.
How Uber lobbied the world’s political elite to try and get its way
Macron, Netanyahu, Kenny, Ilves and Biden are all in WEF.
Emanuel Macron https://www.weforum.org/people/emmanuel-macron
Benjamin Netanyahu https://www.weforum.org/people/benjamin-netanyahu
Toomas Hendrik Ilves https://www.weforum.org/agenda/authors/toomas-hendrik-ilves
The files also reveal how Uber's relationship with one of Europe's top officials, European Commission vice-president Neelie Kroes, began significantly earlier and ran deeper than previously was known, putting her in an apparent breach of rules governing commissioners' conduct.
Neelie Kroes is also in WEF and has served on the Salesforce Board (WEF) since May 2016. She is also currently a member of the Global Policy Advisory Board of Uber Technologies, Inc.
Therein lies the clue, the Global Policy Advisory Board. So, no conflict of interest there then.
Unsurprisingly UBER are a WEF partner. Ex-CEO Travis Kalanick is also a member as is present CEO Dara Khosrowshahi.
Travis Kalanick https://www.weforum.org/people/travis-kalanick
Dara Khosrowshahi https://www.weforum.org/people/dara-khosrowshahi
Kalanick back in 2016 in a WEF video asked the question
“Why would you own a car. You might own a car like some people own a horse. They might take a ride on the weekends or something. I think that’s where the world is going is that people will not own cars. They will have a service that will take them where they want to go when they want to go there”
There was a huge push and continues to be a huge push to get UBER into every city and country globally. The company has experienced phenomenal growth since its inception. UBER is funded by Blackrock, Google, Bezos, Gates and other WEF partners.
They are also supported by the WEF politicians ( as we have seen). The goal of the WEF is to destroy private car ownership and small taxi businesses. They tried to do this by buying the market fraudulently.
But how else would the World Economic Forum try to achieve this ?
Enter “The Shared Economy”
What exactly is the sharing economy? According to Google it is
In 2015 Larry Fink (WEF) who runs Blackrock and who invested in UBER wrote an article called
“Here’s how the sharing economy is reshaping spending”
He says (and this is important)
It would seem pretty obvious what the end goal is here. He spells it out in no uncertain terms when he says
“In another 5 years, car-sharing technologies could be replacing car ownership at a meaningful scale”
“Take driverless cars, for example: While it’s true that they will eliminate congestion and accidents, over time, they will also eliminate jobs for people like taxi and truck drivers”
The WEF backed this up when 2 years later in 2017 an article appeared on the WEF site called
What exactly is the sharing economy?
UBER gets a notable mention
“An example of terminology confusion is Uber. Is it ridesharing when a driver leases out a car that they did not own before, in order to provide rides that they would not have taken otherwise? Hardly. Yet, to much of the public and media, Uber is one of the most touted examples of the sharing economy.”
The sharing economy that the WEF seem to be pushing is very much a case of “You Will Own Nothing And You Will Be Happy”
In a 2016 article The Journalist Resource asked the very pertinent question
“One central area of argument relates to whether the sharing economy is simply bringing more wage-earning opportunities to more people, or whether its net effect is the displacement of traditionally secure jobs and the creation of a land of part-time, low-paid work”
The WEF would definitely fall into the camp of “the displacement of traditionally secure jobs and the creation of a land of part-time, low-paid work”
Don’t forget that Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum and UN General Secretary Antonio Guterres recently signed an agreement to accelerate Agenda 2030. Part of how they want to implement this is through a concept called the “sharing economy” in which people own less and less property.
Predatory private equity firms buying up neighborhoods only to rent homes at a premium hints at the real meaning of the World Economic Forum’s “sharing economy.” This includes cars as well.
Ida Auken, Former Environment Minister, Denmark and a Young Global Leader explains how social credit scores will play a vital role in the Sharing Economy. It encourages people to 'behave'.
This is what she said in 2016
“And I think we are going to a place where we just want mobility where we don’t care so much about owning a car. If you just get a driverless car and just come and pick me up and I can drive around and this car will be driving all the time. Car sharing for a long time was a problem because people left stuff in the car and it was a little bit disgusting. Now you know you rate people, you don’t leave stuff in the car, you just behave better. The information technology has made it much more easy to share things”
The real WEF Agenda is spelt out in a little watched WEF video from 2018 which has only been viewed 65,000 times. It is 6 minutes long but essential viewing. It’s called
What’s Next for the Sharing Economy?
They reference that cars are only used 5% of the time, 95% of the time they are idle and also that they take up valuable car spaces in cities. Carlo Ratti in the video says cities like New York, London, Paris, Singapore would be able to run on a fraction of the cars. He also says “Data is the glue behind the sharing economy”
Guess who they reference as the country who has got the sharing economy right. Yep, you guessed it. China. According to the video the sharing economy in China is a “national priority”. In 2016 the China sharing economy accounted for 500 billion dollars in transactions.
By way of example in the video they talk of renting basketballs for 15 cent an hour or paying for the use of a powerbank to charge your phone. They then ask the question
“What does this shift in thinking mean for individual ownership”
Carlo Ratti says “For other more substantial pieces of urban infrastructure there we can really make it end”
Make it end. By making it end he means ending owning property and cars amongst many other things.
His final words were “We might have a future where we will be able to be conspicuous but without physical consumption” Read into that what you will.
Ratti serves as a member of the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council for Urban Management. This is a man who envisages less cars on the streets with people sharing cars.
It’s really hard to do justice to the video without watching it.
This sharing economy the WEF are so fond of doesn't work without a social credit score. The dark side of the sharing economy which the WEF neglect to mention is that if they get their way we will end up heading towards a world in which people have fewer assets and lower savings therefore we are actually decreasing our resilience as a society.
UBER however isn’t the only company who have signed up to the WEF agenda. AirBNB is also touted as being central to the WEF “shared economy” plans
as is Lyft who are another ride-sharing company. Their co-founder and president John Zimmer is a WEF member
The Globalist WEF Shills are slowly being exposed. UBER is another small part of a far bigger plan. Uber is in cahoots with the EU, the WEF and all global WEF politicians to destroy cabbies’ livelihoods as well as moving towards ride-sharing. They don’t want you to own a car by yourself thereby limiting your opportunities to travel.
This all aligns with the zero-emission madness and climate change agenda. They want to take away from ordinary citizens and give to the conglomerates. That was, is and will continue to be the plan.
For once the World Economic Forum got mentioned in MSM when referencing the Uber Files. What they won’t tell you though is the ultimate goal…
Please make sure to downvote the WEF YouTube video. (Add the Chrome extension to your Brave browser “Return YouTube Dislike” to see the downvotes that the technocrats are hiding.)
