WEF Alternative In The Works?


Psychologist Jordan Peterson made some interesting comments during his recent appearance on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

Peterson said he would like to take on the Davos global elite and start an alternative to the World Economic Forum.

A “populist” alternative.

Peterson told Rogan that he’d like the inaugural meeting to take place in London later this year.

The proposed consortium would tackle several policy and philosophical questions.

The Daily Wire reported:

While this first conference will be invite-only, it will be public, and Peterson noted that if successful, he would like to expand yearly.

Some of the ideas — which are aimed at providing an “alternative vision of the future … an alternative to that kind of apocalyptic narrative that’s being put forward, at least implicitly, by organizations like the WEF” — are as follows:

  • How to get “energy and resources at the lowest possible cost, as rapidly as possible, to the largest number of people around the world.”
  • Engaging in a “pro-human view” of earth stewardship.
  • Putting forward a “vision on the family policy front to facilitate the encouragement of and the maintenance of longterm, monogamous couples who are child-centered.”
  • And discovering our “story,” specifically as it relates to “voluntary play” rather than “the spirit of power” ruling.

“I’ve been trying to understand the driving ideas underneath this globalist utopian tyranny that seems to be developing from the top-down, and I think it’s driven at least in part by this religious vision that I already described. You know, that you have to construe culture itself, especially industrial culture, as the tyrannical father raping and pillaging everything in its way, which is an unbelievably dangerous way to think. Too one-sided,” Peterson explained.

“The idea that you have to impose limits to growth on people in order to have a sustainable planet. And that’s allied with a view that probably stems all the way back to people like Paul Ehrlich in the 1960s who really believe – really believe – truly that maybe the planet should only have 500 million people on it, or a billion – you know, in relative poverty, or two billion barely scraping by. Because otherwise they’re going to be wrecking everything, and you know, controlled by some top-down authority that makes bloody well sure that no one is consuming too much,” he continued.

The Epoch Times added:

As an alternative to what he described as the WEF’s “apocalyptic narratives,” Peterson said the consortium wants instead to “put forward a vision that’s enticing and inviting.”

“Imagine you can have the world you want” with “none of this Malthusian Limits to Growth nonsense.”

The Malthusian Limits to Growth is a concept based on the notion that population growth will eventually outstrip the food supply, leading to widespread famine, disease, and death.

A key criticism of the idea includes that it’s overly simplistic and fails to account for the complex interplay of food production, population, and technological advancement. It’s also inconsistent with historical data, as the model’s dire predictions have failed to pass despite a growing global population, as food production has kept pace through advancements in technology and agriculture.

“We get our act together,” Peterson said, “and everyone can have enough—and maybe more than enough.
