This past December, the Trends Journal predicted a “Youth Revolution” would explode as a result of disastrous pandemic policies that have badly damaged the prospects of an entire upcoming generation.
Lo and behold, the World Economic Forum agrees. Their recently-released “Global Risks 2021” report has a chapter warning about the dangers of youth frustrations exacerbated by COVID policies the WEF has been in the forefront of advocating.
“According to a cited Global Risks Perception Survey cited (GRPS), youth disillusionment is a top neglected risk that will become a critical threat to the world over the next two years. For younger respondents to the GRPS—the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers—’youth disillusionment’ is also a top blind spot.”
The report, in a chapter titled “Pandemials: Youth in an Age of Lost Opportunity,” acknowledged that young adults aged 15 to 24 “will face serious challenges to their education, economic prospects, and mental health.”
Predictably, the WEF report takes no responsibility for the organization pushing the indiscriminate prolonged world lockdowns, which have fomented the youth crisis. But the report admits the economic impacts aren’t going to magically disappear anytime soon. It says that “While the digital leap forward (see Chapter 2, Error 404) unlocked opportunities for some youth, many are now entering the workforce in an employment ice age.”
Translation: elite technocrats advised a global economic freeze and are now complaining about the results. Those same elite advisers were there in 2008, recommending absurdly large bank bailouts and stimulus spending that worsened and prolonged the so-called Great Recession that many now young adults were affected by, as wealth was sucked away from their families.
But the problem there, according to the report, was not enough stimulus:
“Large-scale financial stimulus packages were insufficient for younger generations to regain their footing, and austerity measures hampered investment in education, narrowing an important channel of mobility. As a result, many young people have lingered in precarious service jobs that are vulnerable to major shocks. Pre-COVID, children and youths accounted for two-thirds of the global poor.”
By that measure, the latest Biden approved a $1.9 trillion bonanza, and the WEF recommended “New Green Deal” style world makeovers, no matter how radical, will likely be cited as inadequate one day in the future, too. That will be after the carnage and misery from that agenda wallops “pandemials” as they enter middle age. And the unelected, unaccountable elite funded and directed WEF will no doubt be on hand, issuing reports that avoid taking any responsibility.
