Keeping up with the rapidly accelerating, and unwieldy news cycle lately is like trying to take a sip of water from a fire hose. A worldwide pandemic, the associated panic; fomented nationwide protests giving way to radical, violent Marxist uprisings; a looming presidential election in the fall, but only after trudging through the dog days of a 2020 summer of rage.
Yet, while most of us consider our current state affairs and shake our head, worried that America maybe irrevocably changed, determined to keep the American idea alive amid the threat of this scourge of radicalized socialist movements, the global elite — Officials from the US, UK, leaders of the UN, CEOs/Presidents of the world’s largest companies, and international monetary leaders — are openly salivating at what they consider an extraordinary opportunity to “revamp all aspects of our societies” and a “‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”
The plan was discussed at a virtual meeting of the World Economic Forum in June, where these global leaders examined how they could exploit real and exaggerated crises to justify a historic transition to international socialism controlled by them of course. Sounds crazy?
Read them in their own words; they’re hardly hiding their intentions. Here is Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum:
“COVID-19 lockdowns may be gradually easing, but anxiety about the world’s social and economic prospects is only intensifying. There is good reason to worry: a sharp economic downturn has already begun, and we could be facing the worst depression since the 1930s. But, while this outcome is likely, it is not unavoidable.
To achieve a better outcome, the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a “Great Reset” of capitalism. […]
Left unaddressed, these crises, together with COVID-19, will deepen and leave the world even less sustainable, less equal, and more fragile. Incremental measures and ad hoc fixes will not suffice to prevent this scenario. We must build entirely new foundations for our economic and social systems.
The level of cooperation and ambition this implies is unprecedented. But it is not some impossible dream. In fact, one silver lining of the pandemic is that it has shown how quickly we can make radical changes to our lifestyles. Almost instantly, the crisis forced businesses and individuals to abandon practices long claimed to be essential, from frequent air travel to working in an office.
Likewise, populations have overwhelmingly shown a willingness to make sacrifices for the sake of health-care and other essential workers and vulnerable populations, such as the elderly. And many companies have stepped up to support their workers, customers, and local communities, in a shift toward the kind of stakeholder capitalism to which they had previously paid lip service.
Clearly, the will to build a better society does exist. We must use it to secure the Great Reset that we so badly need. That will require stronger and more effective governments, though this does not imply an ideological push for bigger ones. […]”
That last line is a real knee-slapper. Not only because it belies all the Great Reset proposals that follow; it was probably written with a wink because Schwab knows that it will be a relatively small international cabal that rewrites the rules of the world in the end. No need to seem as if they are enlarging the system when they can merely dictate the end of it entirely, and using the pandemic to “steer” you into compliance with their new world order.
“The Great Reset agenda would have three main components. The first would steer the market toward fairer outcomes. […] Moreover, governments should implement long-overdue reforms that promote more equitable outcomes. […]
The second component of a Great Reset agenda would ensure that investments advance shared goals, such as equality and sustainability. Here, the large-scale spending programs that many governments are implementing represent a major opportunity for progress. […]
The third and final priority of a Great Reset agenda is to harness the innovations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution to support the public good, especially by addressing health and social challenges. […]
The COVID-19 crisis is affecting every facet of people’s lives in every corner of the world. But tragedy need not be its only legacy. On the contrary, the pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous future.”
One of the leaders at the WEF meeting, contributing his own hubris to the task of resetting our lives for the purpose of creating a supra-national, dictatorial world order, was Prince Charles of the United Kingdom.
“We have a golden opportunity to seize something good from this [COVID-19] crisis. Its unprecedented shockwaves may well make people more receptive to big visions of change.”
And other world leaders and activists aggressively pushed for a reset, akin to the Marshall Plan after World War II that created an entirely new world order and a new fiat monetary regime controlled by central banks (Bretton Woods). Except this reset would specifically target destroying capitalism’s freedom in the name of climate change, and enforcing the the dogma of the Woke Left globally.
“Echoing these points, Antonio Guterres, the U.N. secretary-general, called for building “equal, inclusive, sustainable societies, that are more resilient in the face of pandemics and climate change.”
Jennifer Morgan, the executive director of Greenpeace International, said the world should use the current crisis to push “the reset button,” similar to what occurred after World War II, when Morgan says, “We set up a new world order.”
“We set up a new world order after World War II,” Morgan said. “We’re now in a different world than we were then. We need to ask, what can we be doing differently? The World Economic Forum has a big responsibility in that as well—to be pushing the reset button and looking at how to create well-being for people and for the Earth.”
Other speakers at the virtual forum calling for a “Great Reset” included Ma Jun, the chairman of the Green Finance Committee at the China Society for Finance and Banking and a member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the People’s Bank of China; Bernard Looney, CEO of BP; Ajay Banga, CEO of Mastercard; Bradford Smith, president of Microsoft; and Gina Gopinath, the chief economist at the International Monetary Fund. […]”
Still seem crazy? Perhaps even more so, but it is there in plain language. To say it is audacious and ominous would be an understatement, of course. That’s not to say it is implausible, because, as ‘they’ allude to, 2020 is an unprecedented time in history in which we have already witnessed massive and sinister changes at a speed most thought impossible.
The myriad factions of those creating and reacting to the current tumult have a common denominator. In every push, from BLM to Antifa, to the modern Democratic Party, to the UN, to Environmental Alarmists, to central banking maestros, and pervasive in the tsunami of ‘woke’ culture is a coordinated attack on the free man. The Collective is ‘seizing the moment’ to extinguish the Individual.
If that means exploiting a pandemic, a manufactured climate hysteria, and helping advance the Cult of Woke to force a massive reset, putting an end to capitalism and the liberty inherent in it with socialist, authoritarian rebalancing of the world order; so be it.
Search for the Great Reset. Consider the enormous web of organizations and special interest groups that are feverishly pushing that button, anxious to gain power for their ends. This is real; it is happening; it cannot be allowed to succeed; but, is it too late?
