Homo Davos is the future human being imagined by the World Economic Forum and by force imposed on nature and society, without the permission of the society and without the permission of the Homo Davos himself.
Humans, as they are, are not good enough and must be changed, even against their will and against their social and anthropological interests.
Homo Davos lives in a world where the machine takes its place in the production of goods and services and that is why he must learn to live without working, in a jobless society, shifting from someone who earns his share to someone granted his livelihood.
Homo Davos has to learn how to live without anything because at the WEF they think that private property is not the way of the future (see How capitalism is changing ownership) and they are sure that without anything he will be happy. Homo Davos has to watch them preaching the virtual and ecological but meeting in person, reaching Davos with their private jets and he has to find this normal.
The world of Homo Davos is a completely guarded world, but since he thinks that he has nothing to hide, he prefers to have information on everything and everyone to the whim of having a personal life.
Homo Davos will live in a house that will spy on him and for the noble purpose of having a fridge connected with his phone and credit card able to buy him a beer and a canned tuna, he will happily give up the experience of loneliness and the pleasure to lock out of the door the rest of the world.
Since at the WEF they are proud of having the power to change the world as they need, like and whim, the value of Homo Davos has to be the resilience. In an ever-changing system where decision-makers are powerful men and women of the WEF, the Homo Davos must be ready, fast, and efficient in changing with no doubts, questions, and least of all, protests.
Since reality is exhausting its possibilities to provide fabulous fortunes, Homo Davos should be open to the idea of living in a new reality (Reality capitalism. The biggest business in human history), where everything is virgin and for which he will have to work to buy himself a virtual house, a virtual car, and everything else that has already been hard-earned in the real world. Everything will be produced at virtual production cost and sold at real market cost.
Homo Davos will live in intelligent cities, for the good and efficiency of which he will have to give up deciding where, when, and how to go. He will have to deliver data on his decisions and behaviors and to allow the city to be smart, he will have to gladly accept to be dumb.
In a smart world, Homo Davos will also have smart money (see Smart money: an Orwellian scenario) that will know better than him how much to spend, what to buy, and will tell everyone how much each choice will cost him in the future. Also in this case, if money will be smart, in a zero-sum intelligent game, Homo Davos will have to settle for being stupid.
Accustomed to being stupid Homo Davos will find normal and desirable that someone or something will control him through the control of his money, his wishes, and his behavior.
Since humans have lost value in favor of machines and artificial intelligence as a producer, a consumer, and a market (see Value extraction from human beings) the social role of Homo Davos must shift towards that of raw material at the service of the market, artificial intelligence, and most probably a posthuman elite.
