What is the Great Reset?

Is a global authoritarian government about to take control of human life on this planet?

I try to avoid the term “Conspiracy Theory.” I believe it’s the anti-intellectual term of our era, the modern day blasphemy, the slur used to shut down free inquiry and imply that critical thinkers’ very thoughts are sinful or beyond contemplation. 

But when exploring “the Great Reset,” it’s hard not to run across the word “conspiracy.” 

That’s because there is something going on. It’s not theory anymore. When it’s mentioned on the news, when even automotive journals refer to it casually, it’s no longer speculation to debate the “Great Reset,” an out-in-the-open plan of global elites to act together as a sort of uber-government and make decisions for us all. A Great Reset is the stated policy of the powerful World Economic Forum, which hosts the annual Davos meetings. Last summer they hosted a giant “Great Reset” gathering and chairman Klaus Schwab wrote a book called COVID-19: The Great Reset

 “Freedom is always the freedom of the one who thinks differently.” 

– Rosa Luxemberg

In the well-researched words of Robert F Kennedy Jr.:

The World Economic Forum (WEF)… assembles the world’s billionaires in Davos each year to plan and plot out humanity’s political and economic future. WEF’s Chairman, Klaus Schwab, is the author of the influential book, COVID-19: The Great Reset, which WEF has apparently mailed to most of the world’s elected officials, down to provincial executives.

Schwab makes the case that powerful people should use the COVID crisis to impose authoritarian controls, pervasive surveillance, oppressive new economic models and one-world government on a beleaguered, terrified, and compliant humanity. The Great Reset is WEF’s plan to rebuild a new controlled economy systematically after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Schwab and Prince Charles unveiled “The Great Reset” at a WEF summit in May 2020. It is a vision for transferring the world into a totalitarian and authoritarian surveillance state manipulated by technocrats to manage traumatized populations, to shift wealth upward, and serve the interests of elite billionaire oligarchs.

Rather than pass along this perspective, most corporate media reported that the “Great Reset” was a benign idea of repurposing lockdowns and pandemic restrictions to move towards global goals around sustainable development and mitigating climate change. But the barest scratching of the surface on independent media reveals a gulf of concerning topics, and once one goes beyond the platitudes to the actual proposals on the WEF website and in Schwab’s book, Kennedy’s interpretation frankly appears to be the more accurate.

The Two Dark Theories

Some writers in independent media have long maintained that a “One World Government,” or a “New World Order” has been planned by the world’s most powerful families for decades. I’ve never taken the idea too seriously, but some of the seemingly nonsensical government and media actions of the last year have caused me to take another look. Is the “Great Reset” in fact an attempt to use the pandemic for an inconceivably large global power grab? 

In recent posts, I’ve outlined two troubling theories that I’ve been considering throughout this era as to “what is really going on” with the various lockdowns and fluctuating pandemic. One dark theory is that the whole thing is driven by pharmaceutical corporations’ lust for a lucrative universal vaccine. The other, darker theory is that the whole thing is a pretext to shut down freedoms of press, speech, and assembly for the purpose of installing a fascist global government along the lines of the (brilliant) movie V for Vendetta

The first theory looks less farfetched than I had hoped. The profit motive is playing at least some role in the way the vaccine is being incessantly praised and pushed with nary a negative expert heard on the corporate media channels that receive millions in advertising from those same pharmaceutical corporations. Moderna and Pfizer are well on their way to untold billions, and the product they’re pushing appears to be weak at best, if not toxic. If they can force this vaccine upon us all, they might be thinking that the sky’s the limit: the number of injections now required for children could soon be required for everyone. 

That’s disturbing to say the least. But it’s the second theory that this whole “Great Reset” plays into. So let’s take a look at this. I’m going to “go there,” and really consider these theories now, so bear with me if you’re interested. Stop reading now if the information about the injections and treatments was enough for you; those sections are the main reasons I wrote this email and, yes, you have read enough already. You’re excused – thank you for reading, and balance your media diet! 

Diving Deeper 

OK, if you’re still with me, please consider this to be me turning on my citizen’s blinking red “check engine” light. I’m concerned we might be heading very quickly in a very bad direction.

What is most disturbing to me about this whole past year is that back in March, the most “wild-eyed” of “conspiracy theorists” were saying that covid-19 was the kickoff to an authoritarian takeover of government and the end of democracy as we know it. There would soon be a forced vaccine, they said, so that the government could establish its power to do what it likes with our bodies, and that the agenda from there included destroying small businesses so that everyone would be dependent on large corporations or organizations for survival. I listened a little bit to those perspectives as part of my normal media diet, but I didn’t take them too seriously. Yet here we are. Months upon months of restrictions have left many Americans depleted, depressed, desperate, ready to accept anything. The experimental injection is not yet forced on people, but in places where, for instance, 30% of medical workers are opting out, they are being shamed, threatened or fined if they don’t get it via fines on the parent organization. There are more than whispers about the experimental injection becoming necessary to, say, get on a plane, which would be tantamount to compulsion as prohibited activities will snowball once any are established. Imagine trying to build a prominent career in any field if you’re never going to get on an airplane.

As for small businesses, they’re not all gone yet, but thousands upon thousands — perhaps 35% of all small businesses — have been destroyed and will never come back; millions of people who aren’t employed by large organizations are struggling to survive. 

So could the conspiracy theories be correct? Could this all be a massive power play, a slow-motion coup, to institute some type of fascist or authoritarian global government? With the huge increase in censorship, the effective house-arrest of much of the population, and the political manipulation going on in both political parties, I don’t think we can honestly rule it out at this point. Scary and confusing times. 

This disturbing possibility makes it incumbent on us, I believe, to diversify our media and news diets. As we learned in the Nuremburg Trials, not knowing that you were participating in genocide is not a sufficient defense. We must all learn — and confront if necessary — what the true plot is here. If it’s just beating a virus, great, that will be clear and set us all at ease. But if it’s something more, I believe our duty as citizens of this country and planet requires us to become informed. There is a tremendous body of information out there on these topics, some of it very well researched. Here are some places to start:

Bill Gates became an extraordinarily divisive figure in 2020. This exhaustively researched article by Robert F Kennedy Jr. takes a hard look at who Gates has become.

On the darker end of the spectrum, you’ll hear that this is a secret plan to reduce the population of the earth, to “cull the heard,” so that the powerful don’t lose global control to the many. We everyday folks are increasingly many, increasingly connected, and increasingly powerful through our use of the internet. Someone recently remarked to me that just as farmers like to keep their animals penned up, and like to be able to administer injections as they see fit, we are being kept and medicated. That certainly is the darker end of the spectrum.

Now, if the lockdowns end, since they are scientifically unnecessary, obviously harmful, and causing famine in 25 countries, and if the experimental injection remains optional for full participation in both society and employment, I will happily delightfully walk back the growing concerns I’ve just expressed. I would love nothing more than for my suspicions to be wrong, wrong, wrong about this all being a strange slow transition to a fascist system of surveillance and control. Having only to deal with a coronavirus will be a relief to me.

But I believe that at this point any serious student of political history has to acknowledge the troubling trends in governmental control of science, which is still forcing deadly ventilators on thousands of people, using flawed testing techniques, and censoring information about safe treatments. The inconsistent public guidelines about masks and the rushed “vaccine” should be concerning even to someone optimistic about the integrity of our public health authorities.

If you’ve read this far and you reject my thesis altogether here, I’m delighted for the discussion. I want to hear where you stand. Tell me in your response: at what point if any would you become concerned about house-arrest (lockdowns) and violations of the Nuremberg Code (forced injections)? Where’s your line in the sand? Are you willing to stay in your home for 6 more weeks, 6 more months, 6 more years, 60 more years? When will there be so much government surveillance that you’ll go read Orwell’s 1984? When will there be so much online censorship that you’ll research eras of book burning? Or will it have to be you who is censored, you who is forced into an unwanted medical procedure, you whose livelihood is capriciously destroyed? Please consider these things, and if you haven’t done it yet, draw your line in the sand today so it doesn’t continue to shift as the weeks continue to go by. When, in concrete terms, will you say enough is enough? If you think this is all so much paranoia on my part, you might be right! Indeed I hope you are. But please also consider that you could be the proverbial frog in slowly boiling water. We don’t want another 2020.
