Even as we exit the pandemic, anticipate to hear much more about The Great Reset and building back again better. Far from resulting in a low-carbon dream life, though, from the cartoonish fantasy that will hand the global elite even more power.
‘ The Great Reset’ is a term that has been bandied about quite readily by most Western neo-liberal politicians. So often, in fact , and without proper explanation, it strikes the prudent observer as a kind of paid advertisements.
But what is it exactly? The term rose to prominence at the 50th annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in June 2020. It was initially released by the Knight in shining armor of Wales, before being absorbed into the philosophy of the sartorially dystopian sci-fi villain Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the WEF.
The Great Reset refers to an idea to rebuild the planet’s infrastructure ‘ in a sustainable way’ following the economic ravages of the Covid-19 pandemic and to establish a global treaty to prevent future pandemics, or as it is described more formally, to “ build a better quality international health architecture that will protect future generations. ” If you ever hear people talking about “ creating back better, ” they may be referring to The Great Reset.
Probably the most disturbing part of The Great Reset is just how much it strongly resembles business-as-usual, only with EXTRA globalism. Most of the plan’s outlines incorporate a further weakening of national boundaries and individual nationwide autonomy, in favour of a more ‘ universal governance. ‘ As always, it is the rapidly vanishing Traditional western middle class which must shoulder this problem , as their freedoms are further curtailed to meet the particular quotas of corporate-media-fuelled activism.
Regardless, numerous world leaders, no doubt thrilled into acquiescence by Schwab’s commandingly sinister Blofeld-esque wardrobe, agreed to the Great Reset, including Boris Johnson, Emmanuel Macron, Angela Merkel, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Mark Rutte, Pedro Sá nchez, Erna Solberg and Volodymyr Zelensky. According to John Kerry , Joe Biden’s administration is definitely on board, too.
But the general agreement from the Western leaders is absolutely standard of any agenda which is espoused by NATO, the particular UN, or the WEF. If an emotionally charged, politically vague and ultimately unimpressive edict or bill is usually proposed by one of these entities – each resembling a shabby, globe-trotting team of insurance salesmen – the effete politicians line up to show the most fervent compliance.
As a rule, it seems their particular solutions to specific environmental or scientific problems mysteriously become entwined with LGBTQ+ rights, workplace equity, open borders initiatives and other unrelated interpersonal justice causes. It’s as though any goals they have are somehow unilaterally from the same source, or entail exactly the same solution, regardless of causality or consequence. Therefore , a usa response to a global pandemic mysteriously also equals trans rights activism.
In their own words , “ No single government or multilateral company can address this (pandemic) threat alone. Together, we have to be better prepared to predict, prevent, detect, assess and efficiently respond to pandemics in a highly co-ordinated fashion. ”
There are many other sweeping sentiments expressed simply by Schwab and his acolytes which can seem either trite or threatening. Think about “ the gulf between what markets value and what individuals value will close” and “ we want more attention paid to scientific experts. No one can “ self-isolate” from weather change so we all have to “ act in advance and solidarity. ” There is much talk of the particular pursuit of “ fairer and equitable outcomes. ”
International treaties always are usually about concentrating power. It’s one of those rules of life, for realists, as there is absolutely no escaping power dynamics in human affairs. Real issues don’t often have feel-good solutions. Often , they require ‘ options that sound mean’, that will don’t sound good on a corporate goals bulletin. Endeavours like The Great Reset all of entail the gradual loss of the autonomy of person nations, as their decision-making strength is transferred to an international, disembodied rule-maker.
It has been, without a doubt, a globalist wonderland for a long time, but the key issue is: do they appreciate what they are doing or not?
As far as their amazing coordinated pandemic response goes, this appears to be nothing more than pushed world-wide vaccinations for EVERYBODY. According to Klaus Schwab himself: “ As long as not everybody is vaccinated, nobody is going to be safe. ” To which the attendant neo-liberal world leaders nodded in re-affirming unison, repeating together their mantra: “ Global public good. ”

Schwab, despite appearing like an immortal brothel-keeper at Kublai Khan’s Xanadu, is really cut through the same cloth as your standard EU technocrat. His suggestions are not creative, they are very staid and pedestrian, and research of his career shows they have been unchanged since the 1970s. He has consistently already been preaching the very same thing, like a broken record.
Schwab believes we can obtain environmental solutions without altering capitalism in the slightest, by creating treaties of “ mutual accountability and shared responsibility, transparency and co-operation inside the international system. ” His idea involves ‘ ethical capitalism’ – where the excesses of capitalism will somehow be kept at bay by ‘ ethical stakeholders, ‘ to who the corporations will be kept accountable, while (conveniently) the elites and systems currently in place will continue because they are. This is the master plan of the World Economic Discussion board, largely unchanged for 4 decades.
The result? The green technocracy, one presumes, with a WEF-mandated ‘ honest stakeholder’ apparatus, a worldwide spiderweb organisation ruling by the threatened fears of pandemic plus carbon doom. No section of society would be exempt through edicts of ‘ the newest treaty. ‘
The Great Reset website appears to be a bit more than an advertisement with regard to modern pod-living. It seems to create itself as a low-carbon dream-life (without loss of modern convenience) to effeminate hipsters. You can see slovenly-looking neo-liberal young ones, frequent references to LGBTQ+ values, and an overall emergency about carbon footprints.
There is a hint associated with Adbusters about the website, inventor of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Despite the fact that the WEF and Davos and all related entities are entirely elite institutions, the website styles alone on grassroots urban activism. There is much cringeworthy symbology in its white papers, such as a green and rainbow flag-combination with fey slogans such as ‘ we salute a person, zoom queen! ‘
Schwab refers to the aim of The truly amazing Reset as “ the Fourth Industrial Revolution , ” with the first becoming powered by water and steam, the second introducing bulk production, and the third digital automation. The fourth will obnubilate the lines between “ physical, digital plus biological spheres. ”
In this grab-bag of magical advances, he lists, “ areas such as artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things, autonomous vehicles, 3-D printing, nanotechnology, biotechnology, materials science, power storage and quantum computing. ”
This sounds like cartoonish confidence, as many of these technologies are anything but clean and don’t seem to sobre facto relate to side-stepping from industrialism or anything else. In addition to that, fewer than 9% of businesses use the machine learning, robotics, touch screens and other advanced technologies listed as for some reason ‘ changing everything. ‘ Stakeholder capitalism, as a concept, does not explain itself since foolproof, and will no doubt be freely interpreted by the likes of Silicon Valley or even supply chain conglomerates.
The jewel in the crown of Great Reset optimism has to be the belief that the advent of AI will alter almost everything positively, again without details, to somehow create a low-carbon new world.
It seems at best to be all be smoke and mirrors, a childish corporate fantasy manufactured by isolated bean counters. At worst, it is an deliberate power-grab by unaccountable worldwide agencies and hidden oligarchs.
Either way, it is a fake utopia at the price of privacy and autonomy, marketed to us by used-car salesmen who think these are princes.
