Klaus Schwab Promotes Fourth Industrial Revolution at World Government Summit

Speaking at the World Government Summit in Dubai on February 14, World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab put a new twist on the old maxim, “He who rules space will rule the Earth.” Instead, Schwab told roughly 4,000 government officials from around the globe that whoever masters artificial intelligence will be “the master of the world.”

Schwab delivered this comment in his keynote speech at the summit, which was about artificial intelligence, chatbots and other advancements.

Governments in different parts of the world should play leading roles in keeping pace with changes …. A few years ago, we considered some technologies a science fiction that was difficult to implement, but today it has become a reality that we live through artificial intelligence, new space technology and industrial biology, which heralds a major change coming during the next 10 years, and requires governments to be ambitious in their decisions.
—Klaus Schwab

Fourth industrial revolution: Other speakers also talked about artificial intelligence at the summit, but Schwab’s speech emphasized that humanity is on the verge of a fourth industrial revolution. Whereas the First Industrial Revolution brought steam power, the second brought assembly lines, and the third brought digitization, Schwab believes the fourth industrial revolution will bring artificial intelligence, genome editing, augmented reality, robotics and 3-D printing. He wrote a book on the fourth industrial revolution three years before he wrote a book on the Great Reset, and he is now warning that humanity must accept global government to prevent rogue nations from abusing the digital and genomic weapons that will soon be in their hands.

Corporate socialism: Schwab founded the World Economic Forum in 1971 as a platform for resolving global conflicts. But in the decades since, it has pushed for “stakeholder capitalism,” an innocuous-sounding term that Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben calls “Communist capitalism” and Dr. Michael Rectenwald calls “corporate socialism.” It resembles the economic system used by Nazi Germany, fascist Italy, Falangist Spain and other nations. Schwab’s quest to keep digital and genomic weapons out of the hands of national dictators could end with a globalist dictator getting these weapons.

Dark sentences: A sobering Bible prophecy in Daniel 8:23-24 reveals that a powerful end-time dictator will gain control over a substantial part of the globe. Verse 23 says, “And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.” The Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament explains that the expression “dark sentences” means riddles, difficult or dark speeches, or sayings, questions or parables. Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon defines “dark sentences” as “twisted, involved, subtlety, fraud, enigma.”

The earliest substantial work in artificial intelligence was done in the mid-20th century by British logicians working to crack the code of the Nazi Enigma machine. A lot of new technologies have wide-ranging ramifications. This passage suggests this strongman will be highly intelligent and well versed in many of these technologies.
