What I Learned at Davos: The Future of Democracy Is Secure

I recently attended the World Economic Forum’s 54th annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. The theme was “rebuilding trust,” and today, I can truly say that I’ve never been more hopeful about the future of democracy.

That’s not because I was impressed by United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ shock at “the systemic undermining of principles and standards” or convinced by Chinese Communist Party Premier Li Qiang’s case for “all sides” to “treat each other with sincerity and work in the same direction.”

Nor was I particularly persuaded by Professor Klaus Schwab’s call for more “open, transparent conversations” as I watched World Economic Forum’s founder and his friends set the agenda for the Great Reset while hobnobbing in a remote town in the Swiss Alps.

The reason I am confident about the future of democracy is because these elites are profoundly unimpressive. For 72 hours, I watched speakers who supposed themselves to be the most powerful people in the world fret about a “trust” they knew they’d lost and wouldn’t get back.
