In an interview on China state television -- all public forums in China are state-owned or controlled, by the way -- Schwab finally took off his mask when he praised the authoritarian Communist regime and called it a "role model" for all countries.
Schwab, 84, made these comments during an interview with CGTN’s Tian Wei on the sidelines of last week’s APEC CEO Summit in Bangkok, Thailand.
Schwab said he respected China’s "tremendous" achievements at modernizing its economy over the last 40 years.
"I think it’s a role model for many countries," Schwab said while going on to pretend he believes in 'democracy' by adding that each country should decide for itself what governing system its people choose.
"I think we should be very careful in imposing systems. But the Chinese model is certainly a very attractive model for quite a number of countries," Schwab added.
Fox News Digital went on to point out that Schwab did not go on to elaborate on what aspects of China's governing model were appealing to him or which aspects he believed would be of benefit to other countries.
"China is governed by the absolute rule of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which does not allow people to practice the religion or belief of their choice, and has no tolerance for dissent or criticism," the outlet reported, meaning there is little for people who believe in representative government to really like.
By the way, according to CGTN's website, one topic of discussion with Schwab was "global governance."
"As the region is one of the most dynamic regions of the world today, the annual APEC events have also become hubs for movers and shakers around the world. Among them is Klaus Schwab, the founder of the World Economic Forum. He sat down with CGTN's Tian Wei and shared his observations about whether major economies of the region and the world can shore up global governance," the news site noted in a post along with a video of the interview.
Fox News Digital added more background on China's authoritarianism and Schwab's globalist initiatives couched in "wokeism":
In 2014, the CCP announced a moral ranking system whereby individuals, government organizations, and companies are ranked based on social credit. Comparisons have been drawn to environmental, social and governance, or ESG, scores being used by major financial institutions and global organizations to create a type of social credit system designed to influence behavior and transform society.
Schwab wrote in 2019 that ESG scores are necessary for stakeholder capitalism.
ESG is a concept that pushes "Environmental, Social, and Governance" elements in corporate management and investing. "Green energy" is in; fossil fuels are out, for example. And nothing Republican- or conservative-oriented, because conservatives are the new 'fascists,' according to the left (who are the real fascists).
"‘Stakeholder capitalism,’ a model I first proposed a half-century ago, positions private corporations as trustees of society, and is clearly the best response to today’s social and environmental challenges," he wrote at the time. "We should seize this moment to ensure that stakeholder capitalism remains the new dominant model."
In fact, China has copied Western-style capitalism as it was once practiced -- with innovation, job growth, and expansion in mind, not woke liberalism and virtue signaling. Other than that, Beijing has nothing to offer Western democracies in terms of governance, and the fact is, Schwab, an anti-capitalist, anti-democrat, knows that. He essentially just admitted as much.
