Opinion: (Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF)): “‘One can get the impression that we are faced with a global burnout syndrome,’ said Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), held annually in the Swiss mountain resort.
“‘Capitalism, in its current form, no longer fits the world around us’…
“‘We have failed to learn the lessons from the financial crisis of 2009. We have a moral divide, we are overindebted, we have neglected investments in our future, we have undermined social cohesion,’ he warned. ‘And we run the risk of completely losing the trust of future generations.’
The WEF’s 2012 Global Risks Report lists 50 dangers that echo these ideas.

“Many of these problems could lead into a dark future, ‘undoing the progress that globalization has brought,’ they found.
“Heads of state from nearly 40 countries are expected to travel to Davos to discuss these issues under the motto ‘The great transformation: shaping new models.’
“Activists of the global Occupy movement plan to let forum attendees know that they disagree with this argument, based in an igloo village they have set up in Davos.
“Forum participants were ‘incredibly arrogant,’ said David Roth, a young Socialist politician and co-organizer of the Occupy camp.
“‘All those who caused the crisis meet and pretend to be able to solve these problems,’ he said.”
My Comment: Neither the participants nor their opponents know how to solve the problem. However, the opponents of the forum are right: The arrogance—of both the participants and opponents—will not let them pay attention to the solution offered by Kabbalah.
