Many of us have heard of slogans like “The Great Reset”, “the new normal,” or others like “Build Back Better”. Whether it was shrouded in a “conspiracy theory” or plastered across the news for us to view, they were hard to miss during the COVID-19 pandemic. But do we really know what these terms mean and how they’ll impact ourselves and our families in the future?
Where did these initiatives come from and who do they benefit? Let’s take a dig into them with sobered eyes.
To get a greater sense of these terms we can look first to the World Economic Forum (WEF) and other globalist organizations. The World Economic Forum, as it’s currently called, originated in 1971 as a European organization. They hosted an annual meeting in January for corporate executives.
Earlier sessions of these meetings were called the European Management Forum and focused on how European leaders could replicate corporate methods in the United States. The World Economic Forum is governed by a Board of Trustees, a group of elites who serve as custodians of the Forum’s goals and vision. Also, they supervise the Forum’s efforts to promote global citizenship.
Distinguished figures from finance, politics, science, academics, and civil society make up the Board of Trustees. Members of the Board supposedly do not represent any personal or business while on the board. However, this is contestable.
Prof. Klaus Schwab, WEF chairman, is the other originator of the Great Reset program. The WEF hosts an annual conference in a Swiss ski resort for some of the world’s wealthiest and most influential individuals. The Prince of Wales and the chairman of the annual Davos conference announced this same effort in June 2020, urging the pandemic to be viewed as an opportunity for a “Great Reset” of the world economy.
The Great Reset is being advertised as a time to pause, slow down, and reflect on how we are living our lives on this planet. It’s marketed as a time for humanity to disrupt our earlier ways of being and doing for the greater good of the global community.
Some of their talking points seem like a genuine effort to preserve life on this planet. For example, the world had a 7% drop in global emissions during the lockdowns earlier last year, according to WEF. This is one of the many talking points they have used to sell their plans of the Great Reset.
Others, however, sound like the diabolical makings of a mad scientist. Predicting in the future that 3D printed food will sustain us or that we’ll own no private property is enough to give anyone a pause. The effort even has its own website.
According to the World Economic Forum, “There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world, the World Economic Forum is starting The Great Reset initiative.”
The WEF claims to care about the economic interests of everyday citizens and proposes more taxes on global companies. In an article on the WEF’s website, Klaus Schwab wrote,
“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.”
This is hard to believe given that they partner with such large companies as Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, IBM and more to spread their messages and mission.
According to Time, the Great Reset means “The COVID-19 pandemic has provided a unique opportunity to think about the kind of future we want. TIME partnered with the World Economic Forum to ask leading thinkers to share ideas for how to transform the way we live and work.”
The article lists several key players in implementing the Great Reset and what they think of our current efforts. In reality, their contributions don’t matter much because these efforts were preplanned. The Great Reset is being exploited to control global economies and usher in a new way of living according to the World Economic Forum’s terms.
They argue if their global concerns aren’t addressed, these crises, together with COVID-19, will worsen, making the globe less suitable, less equitable, and more vulnerable. More so, they believe we can’t avoid this scenario by following gradual actions because they won’t be sufficient.
The WEF advocates our economic and social structures must be rebuilt from the ground up. To achieve this, it involves a degree of global collaboration and ambition never before seen. To them, it isn’t some far-fetched fantasy.
“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,” the WEF says.
By reviewing the WEF’s plans, it’s clear this pandemic has been used as a global political tool to usher in a totalitarian world government. It’s meant to carry out the will of the WEF under the guise of global economics working together to contain it. But as hard as the global regime tries to overhaul our lives, many citizens across the world are resisting and not playing by their terms.
To put it simply, it’s impossible for a global regime to control our lives as if they were God.
Meanwhile, many prominent Democrats and left-leaning politicians such as Joe Biden promote these ideas. Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada, has shared similar sentiments.
According to The Hill, “For decades, progressives have attempted to use climate change to justify liberal policy changes. But their latest attempt – a new proposal called the “Great Reset” – is the most ambitious and radical plan the world has seen in more than a generation.”
The COVID-19 pandemic provided the first rationale for the Great Reset. However, proponents of the global economic makeover maintain that climate change is the real reason we should follow an enormous restructuring of civilization. They claim that doing nothing would present an “existential threat” to humanity.
This is a patently ridiculous assertion that many on the left continue to make without a shred of scientific data to back it up.
Many conservatives and Republicans who support “America First” are rejecting the WEF’s demands for internationally shared agendas for the private sector. The WEF’s goals seem to lean toward socialism and communism, which they oppose. They are concerned about the organization’s increased focus on world-wide cooperation to reform capitalism.
Supporters of smaller government and lower taxes scoff at the WEF’s assessment that regardless of the details, the state’s role will grow, and this will have a substantial impact on how business is done.
But for now, we’ll have to wait and see if the WEF gets their Great Reset after all.
