By 2030 You Will Own Nothing and Be Happy

– Klaus Schwab

Where has Schwab ever stated this? Nowhere, this claim originates from one blog post that was speculating about the future, it was never intended to be a part of WEF’s agenda. Conspiracy nuts have then started to regurgitate that claim and blog post around in their own echo chambers.

The WEF does not have a ‘stated goal’ to remove everyone’s private property by 2030. As addressed in previous Reuters fact checks, these claims likely originated from a WEF social media video from 2016 that stated eight predictions about the world in 2030, including: “You’ll own nothing. And you’ll be happy. What you want you’ll rent, and it’ll be delivered by drone.”

Danish politician Ida Auken, who wrote the prediction in question (here), said it was not a “utopia or dream of the future” but “a scenario showing where we could be heading - for better and for worse.”

In a written update, she clarified that the piece aimed to “start a discussion about some of the pros and cons of the current technological development. When we are dealing with the future, it is not enough to work with reports. We should start discussions in many new ways. This is the intention with this piece.”

And why is Bill Gates there? He has been in some previous G20 Summits like in 2011 when he was invited by Nicolas Sarkozy – but not in this one. Klaus Schwab was at B20 summit that was held concurrently with G20 in Bali.

Although several reports prior to the summit claimed that Gates was planning to attend the event, he was in fact in Kenya, meeting with leaders and officials to discuss developments in health care, agriculture, and information technology.

Gates was interviewed by Kenyan press at the time the G20 summit was taking place and sent a number of tweets while in Nairobi showing him with the country’s leaders.

While neither Bill Gates nor his former wife Melinda attended, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation was among three organizations that have committed alongside G20 nations to the launch of an international “pandemic fund.”

Klaus Schwab, the founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF), did go to Bali, but he was attending B20, a concurrent event that is part of the G20 summit that invites global business leaders for a series of keynote addresses and speeches.

Schwab was among a list of speakers, including SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, who delivered talks at B20.

This nuance, however, was missing from the posts questioning why “non-politicians” were attending the summit in Bali.

Stop getting your news from Twitter of all places and spreading false claims made by whackos. Asking that question doesn’t make anyone a conspiracy theorist, if the basic facts are right in first place.



Gaming, going to the gym, reading books, programming, hanging out with my friends, going to bars… during summer I usually hang out with my friends at parks.


Cleaning the apartment extensively, as I have had problem with scabies for over a month. Otherwise enjoying good food, gaming and programming.

It looks like you tried to register an account in March when I had problems with Sopuli’s verification emails getting into spam folder. This was also before registration applications were turned on for Sopuli. I have deleted the account you mentioned from Sopuli’s database. Try to register an account again!



I have put bookmarks for websites mainly to Firefox’s bookmark menu. I have put RSS feeds and bookmarklets for Instapaper and archive.is into the bookmark bar.


Guess I have been doing good, even though I’m still unemployed. I failed one company’s programming puzzle and feels like I have gotten more motivation to learn programming on my spare time. Might continue developing my own projects. Also I feel more motivated to practice guitar.

Feels also refreshing to see more Finnish users on Fediverse after Elon Musk bought Twitter, many of which are not just interested of FOSS and technology. The world may not be doing well but Fediverse is.



And as a counterpoint there is also Meduza that is independent: https://meduza.io/en


Can’t agree more. I have my old Packard Bell netbook from 2011 as a Linux home server. In case it hangs up, I can just open it and see what’s happening from its screen and use its keyboard. I could imagine buying a more powerful laptop just to be used as a Linux server.




Oh, some progress has been made: Zucc’s avatar no longer looks like a Mii!


These came to my mind.








Pop OS and 5.1 surround audio is messed up
I have Logitech's Z506 surround speakers and I run the latest version of Pop OS. I noticed that when 5.1 analog output is selected through Pop OS's audio settings, the order of speakers is messed up: for example front center is suddenly rear left, subwoofer is rear right and center is rear left. When 5.0 output is selected, the order of speakers is all right. What makes this more weird is that when I used `speaker-test -c6 -twav`, every speaker is just fine. Could something be wrong with PipeWire?
