• Just because the Covid truthers are wrong about this being a manufactured crisis, doesn't mean evil technocrats aren't waiting in the wings, hoping it will provide a technological "reset" that benefits the largest and most vile corporate actors. Wrong Kind of Green analyzes the writings of one Klaus Schwab, head of the Davos-based World Economic Forum, who is bubbling over with creepy hopes and prognostications for a globalist, transhumanist, privacy-invading future, existing mainly for the purpose of enhancing profits (or what Schwab calls "value") for the One Percent.
