    Alibaba president J.

    Australian eSafety commissioner Julie Inman Grant says we have to think about a "recalibration" of "human rights" online like freedom of speech...

    Then there is the White House's claim from last year that skyrocketing inflation was "transitory", even though we're still transitting upwards with no end in sight.

    Real Life Bond Villain...

    As World Economic Forum head Klaus Schwab proclaimed that “the future is built by us” at the opening of the annual Davos gathering, two other European elites declared that the global energy crisis is a “transition” that will be “painful” for most, but should not be resisted by nations tempted to preserve their own sovereignty over the “global agenda.”

    Schwab called those summoned before him a “powerful community,” and declared “We have the means to improve the state of the world, but two conditions are necessary: The first one, is that we act all as stakeholders of larger communities, so that we serve not only our self-interests but we serve the community. That’s what we call ‘stakeholder responsibility.’”
