“There can not be a lasting recovery without a global strategic framework of governance.” Page 113.
“Put bluntly, we live in a world in which nobody is really in charge.” Page 114.
If this book is supposed to make an argument for a one world government then they are not doing a good job. When I look at the failures of the last year, the tens of thousands of dead at the hands of people who are praised for doing the “right thing,” and how other states and countries breezed through the pandemic by not changing anything in their society I have to wonder why we would encourage a system where one idiot thinks they know best and how many people would die from their mistakes? It is because of the lack of unified rule that I have some confidence that we will move past this depressing period of time. As I write this, Texas is completely open with no restrictions on its population. Mississippi no longer requires mask. Florida is opening up along with California. The list of states continues to grow and the Federal government couldn’t be more pissed off about it. The moment that Texas announced they were done with lockdowns the flood gates opened for everyone else to follow suite.
The phrase “nobody is really in charge” is inaccurate to say the least.
“This failure is not the WHO’s fault. The UN agency is merely the symptom, not the cause, of global governance failure.” Page 118.
The WHO is a failure and continues to be a failure, unable to function outside of the prying eyes of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party), the results that we have seen are pathetic at best. The WHO was not allowed in China until the start of 2021, more than 9 months after the initial outbreak in Wuhan. Even when they did go to Wuhan the WHO did not go to the infectious disease lab that many experts speculate the virus came from. When the WHO left Wuhan, they said that their data was inconclusive and that they could not say China was the source of the virus. This whole process is absurd, try to figure out what happened at a crime scene 9 months after it happened and billions of people have moved through the area destroying any and all evidence.
To say that nobody is in charge ignores the obvious group running the world right now behind the scene, China. The main financial support for the WHO is China. The official story behind Covid-19 was written by China and handed over to the WHO. Any failures in global governance that Klaus Schwab has an issue with he can take up with China. China refused to reveal that the virus was contagious when they knew that it was. China refused to let the WHO into Wuhan when the outbreak started. China said that the virus was not spread person to person and the WHO repeated it as if it was a fact. It wasn’t until the virus had passed borders into Europe and North America that the WHO finally said we were in a pandemic. We had to wait for the obvious to happen before people would react.
A group of men wearing mask park a car outside your bank. They step out carrying guns in their hands. The teller asks you, the manager if she should call the cops. “No, its fine it’s not a robbery.” The men shoot the guard outside. “And now?” she asks. “they aren’t robbing the back.” The doors open and one of the men shoots the ceiling. “And now?” You look around realize that the robbery is happening but now its too late. The world watched as the virus spread but the picture was always developed two weeks after it was taken. Symptoms start to show after 14 days of contracting the virus. Once you have your first confirmed case the virus has been spreading for two weeks and nobody knew. In a global economy and a global system waiting for confirmed cases was the dumbest policy and only ensured that the virus would spread and kill enabling inhumane policies like the great reset. The failure of dealing with the pandemic starts at the top including the UN, the World Economic Forum, the EU, and the WHO. Had it not been for the political situation in the US things might have been different except when the borders were closed a certain party on the left called the president at the time a xenophobe and a racist. The stopping of a virus that could have had a high mortality rate was not a priority for some people until it worked for their advantage. Every country has their political problems, their social problems, and their economic problems. A global government is not going to magically solve these problems and work for every culture on the planet. To try to implement a system of one rule government will cause a backlash of violence. To really look at what Schwab is suggesting I have to ask if this is any different from the Spanish coming to the now world or the British pushing their rule over other lands like India for example. Why is the idea of the Great Reset something that everyone should or needs to follow?
The US needs to be a lifeboat for the rest of the world. The current administration is set on following the Great Reset regardless of how the public, who “elected” them, thinks about it. On a positive note, we have a constitution and the idea of state’s rights. For Texas and others to no longer follow the CDC or the WHO for Covid-19 protocol is a positive sign for where this program might end up, in the trash. The more states refuse to follow the guidelines of the federal government the more the public can see which policies work and which ones don’t. when given the option of having less freedom after a year of lockdowns or being open and returning to normal the answer is obvious. That is what the Biden administration fears the most, losing control of a public who were following pandemic guidelines. If people no longer fear the virus how will they follow guidelines to solve climate change or systemic racism? There is a long list of no existent problems that the left what’s you to worry about but when they create the problem and only they have the answer to the problem its like any other religion. You enter wanting answers to something, you are given a certain truth and then spend your time trying to spread the word and fighting to make the world a better place in that image only to learn later that you are the new asshole of the world making things worse for people, not better. Nobody likes a new convert to a religion and the religion of social justice has many new coverts that are pissing people off across the globe. There is hope. More people are saying “no.” the word is getting out about these clowns and their weird ideology. The people who scream about racism are finally being called out as the racist they admit to being. The damage is done and while BLM was marching through the streets setting fires to businesses and killing people the supporters in officer had Covid-19 positive patients put into nursing homes killing the elderly by the tens of thousands. Nobody marched in the streets about these policies. The last thing that the US needs to do right now is take orders from some one world government of people who are not elected and obviously know less than the people who should be running things. We can’t keep track of the criminals that are currently running the country, why would we trust the criminals running a world government?
While reading this book I was surprised and yet not surprised at the same time that this was so far the shortest chapter. Schwab makes the obvious conclusion that there is a chance the US dollar will no longer be the world reserve currency. He discounts new forms of currency like Bitcoin but towards the end mentions the Chinese renminbi (RMB) as a possible replacement. I’m not sure if this is a smoke screen for what appears to already be happening with some countries suggesting copying the Chinese model of doing Social Credit Scores and moving all commerce to a digital format. For years now Russia and China have been buying up physical gold and silver, paying almost double in some situations above spot price, and building vaults in their national banks to house it in. Could there be a digital currency backed by gold and silver in the future? I guess we will have to wait and see.
Schwab closes the chapter by saying that the chance of the dollar losing its dominance is unlikely. But this also follows a paragraph talking about the printing of money and how inflation will pop up its ugly head as the US continues to create more dollars to keep programs going and tax revenue declines due to Covid-19. Regardless of the pandemic the odds of the US becoming insolvent were high from zero interest rates, poor (shitty) book keeping, lack of tax revenue, and an economy that has been bleeding money into China since the 1990’s. Companies like Walmart have supported the Chinese Communist Party for decades by destroying local economies throughout the US, buying cheap products from China and shipping US dollars to China to pay for cheap labor and funding China’s expanse across the globe. Those dollars were also used to buy US debt through the Federal Reserve making China a shareholder in the US government by being a partial owner of the treasury credit card. This impacts US foreign policy in obvious ways. Recently President Biden was asked about the concentration camps in China and what US policy was on it? “They have a different culture from us,” was the response from the president. When it comes to congress or the current president the policy has been obvious, let China do what they want because they own us. I long for the days when we had a leader that referred to the CCP as “motherfuckers.” Things drastically changed in a matter of weeks.
Whether Schwab wants to say it or not the day of the dollar is coming to a close. It would appear that those above us on the income ladder agree as certain commodities are bought up and stored away for a rainy day. Billionaires are buying land, companies, art, precious metals, antiques, and anything else that will increase or hold its value over time. Keep in mind that physical items are easier to transport wealth than actual money. A woman wearing a $10,000 neckless doesn’t have to claim it like she would if it was a briefcase filled with cash. Those who can afford it are buying Bitcoin, driving the price to $50,000 per coin, last I checked. The desire to move and own land caused a housing boom during Covid-19 that is finally coming to a close. The lack of employment and no support from the government to the middle or lower class kept people in dire straits looking at eviction in the coming months along with massive amounts of debt from the pandemic, all of this due to government policies, not the pandemic.
The mismanagement of the US dollar is not due to the pandemic as Schwab would like to suggest but the poor policies that have been in place since the year 2000. If any event was to blame for the downfall of the dollar it would be 9-11 not Covid-19. If anything, Covid-19 is the final nail in the coffin not the cause of its decline.
