The World Economic Forum (WEF) has been held in Davos, Switzerland, since 1971. Every year, leading figures from politics, business and science meet here to discuss important issues and topics of global politics behind closed doors. The events and accompanying parties also provide an ideal setting for lobbying, making agreements and striking lucrative deals. Not very democratic, as critics of the WEF rightly complain.

Conspiracy theorists also accuse the WEF of pursuing a sinister agenda which is hidden in plain sight. They believe that with the slogan The Great Reset, the WEF has shamelessly revealed its goal to use the pandemic as a welcome opportunity to transform the world into a new order, namely a totalitarian dictatorship of corporations led by the secret elites.
