How to stop the Great Reset

It is a tall order to say that the common man can stop something as well organized as the Great Reset. We have the book by Klaus Schwab, Agenda 2030 and 2050 by the United Nations, and a push to keep Covid-19 relevant even though the survival rate is 99.9%. It would appear that we have a decade, maybe less with the 2030 date ticking away and in reality, I would say we have 3-5 years to stop this. Do you want to live a life where you own nothing, have no privacy, have every choice monitored, and they say you will be happy? Why do I think we have 3-5 years?

The initial plan ends with 2030. That only happens if the first steps are taken and they are able to continue on their path of control. Keep in mind, Covid-19 is an important aspect of this plan, it is the excuse they grasp on to so that they can suppress individual rights and start grinding away at documents like the constitution. We are seeing some progress against the Great Reset. Government mandated Covid passports were found to be unconstitutional so instead we are seeing a push for businesses to violate your medical privacy by requiring proof you were vaccinated. I think that some will try this and maybe there will be a requirement on your actual passport for travel, but keep in mind infected people were allowed to travel for the last year. Vaccines are mandated to travel to some countries already, what we could see is a state-by-state mandate for proof of vaccination still violating HIPPA laws and I would like to think they would be found a violation of constitutional law. The only downside is the cost in lawsuits to overturn laws that were already a violation of laws we have now.

As a write this Texas, Georgia, Florida, Indiana, Montana, and several others that are no longer locked down or were never locked down like North Dakota, Utah, and Nebraska. The smaller governments become the easier it is to bypass the great reset. Today, President Biden signed executive orders for gun laws that are unconstitutional. In response, states signed laws to not follow federal gun laws. That doesn’t mean that the ATF can’t enforce those laws but it does create a barrier to make it easy to enforce. Then we have these horrible promises to make gasoline fueled vehicles banned from various countries by 2030. The UK signed a law to make this happen along with a few others, and the US is wanting to do the same thing. What they don’t realize is that this would also include farm equipment, transportation of goods, and airliners. Before the year 1900 it was uncommon for most people on the planet to travel further that 5 miles from their home. This is what they want to go back to. By eliminating fossil fuels, we will also lose fertilizers, pesticides, plastic to wrap and ship produce, trucks with refrigeration, tractors to plant, harvest, plow, bale, weed, etc. It would appear that those in power have no desire to feed the public, the common man, over the next decade. As for the push towards renewable energy, the latest calamity in Texas and Germany during a late winter storm showed the rest of the world green energy isn’t where it needs to be if its going to work to replace the grid system we have now.

There was a phrase that became famous during the 1980s, perhaps it has been long forgotten. “Just say no,” was something Nancy Reagan said about doing drugs. If you believe in the great reset or any of the woke SJW bullshit that is coming out of government or Hollywood, you deserve to be looked upon as a drug addict who is not thinking rationally. Granted, just say no, didn’t do much to curb the drug problem in the country and DARE ended up teaching kids how to do drugs that they weren’t familiar with. The one drug we should be avoiding at this point is socialist/ communist ideology that is being pumped out by our news media and the woke left who desire to control everyone while promising everything.

There are two stories being told by the media these days, Covid-19 cases are spiking and cases are dropping. In my state of Michigan, we are allegedly seeing a spike in cases that is causing the Governor to start voluntary lockdowns while her assistant takes a trip to Florida for vacation. Meanwhile in Florida, Texas, and other states, case numbers are dropping and the states are completely open for business. It would appear that the states which continue lockdowns, for some reason, see a spike in cases while states with no restrictions see low numbers of cases. It isn’t difficult to see that either cases spike from lockdowns, or the states engaging in lockdowns might be taking liberties with the numbers they are reporting. As we know about government and other businesses, if your paycheck depends on the continuation of a problem, it is best not to solve that problem.

It is important for people to engage in civil disobedience when it comes to the Great Reset, Covid-19, and BLM. All of these agendas go hand in hand and work together for the same goal. There is a two-tier system at work here. The first is to pass policies through government, and when they can’t use government, corporations will be used to make social changes. We are already seeing this with Facebook and Twitter, two social media apps I don’t use. So, what can we do?

Get off of social media. At least the festering cesspools that are Facebook and Twitter. Don’t let these corporations collect your information and create profiles on you. Be careful where you spend your money. Buy local and small when you can. For every dollar these large corporations don’t collect it is less power they have over us. Support independent media and don’t watch major media outlets. They don’t give you news anyway. Stay in the control group. Get the vaccine if that is what you decide to do, I however will sit back and watch what happens to those who do take it. If they want to use the public for an experiment, I will volunteer to be part of the control group to see what the side effects are. Don’t follow stupid laws that are not based on science. 6 feet, 3 feet, mask, no mask, double mask, none of these guidelines made sense since day one. Airborne diseases are difficult to contract and keeping people indoors makes it easier to contract an airborne illness. If you want the public to contract a disease, continue the lockdown. Start local trade. Find people to trade goods with. With food shortages, freighters getting stuck in canals, and new regulations preventing farmers from doing their jobs we will need to find local sources of necessary goods. There is more and I’m sure I will think of other things to add as soon as I post this. The important thing is to get started on the resistance. Think for yourself. Question authority.

The Great Reset: Micro Reset (Industry and Business)

“For some, like entertainment, travel or hospitality, a return to a pre-pandemic environment is unimaginable in the foreseeable future (and maybe never in some cases…). For others, manufacturing or food, it is more about finding ways to adjust to the shock and capitalize on some new trends (like digital) to thrive in the post pandemic era.” Page 174.

It is clear, with the policies set under the Biden administration and others around the globe, there are certain industries that are to die out and never be seen again. The movie theaters are open again but unless you live in Texas or Florida they are not at full capacity and two states cannot keep an industry going that is already losing money with film productions shut down due to social distancing. Hollywood is literally supporting their own demise with their support of lockdowns. Some will say that it will come back and that they have enough money to wait it out but if theaters are closed is the industry going to convert to digital and work with only a fraction of their income. Wonder Woman 1984 might be the last big budget movie produced with the way it was released in a handful of theaters and a streaming release that made no money. The sequel to a hit movie turned into a huge flop because of Covid-19.

78% of jobs in the US are in the service industry. How does a person serve others with social distancing and limited seating space? They don’t. Restaurants already function with a limited income and that is when they are full. If they don’t have a liquor license they don’t survive. To tell a restaurant they come only function at 25% is to tell them to close their doors. Meanwhile, fast food is still operating with small spaces in the kitchens and handing out crappy quality food through drive thru windows to people who should be eating healthy to fight a virus. This is not the case and for some reason the government says it is okay to offer low quality food to those who should be eating better during a pandemic.

What is this obsession with “Post Pandemic”? What does this really mean? It would appear that while the people in charge continue to tell us that eventually we will go back to normal they have no plan to actually let that happen. There has been an attack on the food industry as well. Production facilities have been shut down. Employees test positive for a virus they show no symptoms for and they don’t get sick or die from it. Yet, the business is shut down and people lose money. The business loses money and employees. The animals that were being processed are a waste and sacrificed to the god that is Covid-19. There is no evidence that food tainted with Covid-19 will transfer Covid-19. This is why we cook food. To kill bacteria and viruses that might be on the food. This is why eating things like raw spinach is more likely to make someone sick from E Coli than eating a steak. One is cooked and sterilized the other is not washed properly and not cooked to kill any germs. At yet we keep hearing stories of tainted food and processing centers shut down.

Digital, the answer that Schwab loves to hang on, does little to help society. Humans are social creatures. We need face to face contact for communication. Digital doesn’t replace dating or business meetings. When you enter a contract with someone it is always good to meet them face to face to figure out if they are lying or trying to swindle you. As one story goes, a man goes golfing with a possible business partner. During the game the man starts to cheat in order to have a better score. Afterwards the man asked his wife what she thought. She pointed out the man was a cheater and not to do business with him. the man followed her advice and later they found out the man had become the business partner of a company that caught him embezzling money and later sent him to jail. The things that are being pushed in order to adjust businesses for the post pandemic future are bound to aid in their failing under these conditions.

The Great Reset: Contact tracing, contact tracking and surveillance

“The most effective form of tracking or tracing is obviously the one powered by technology: it not only allows backtracking of all the contacts with whom the user of a mobile phone has been in touch. But also tracking the user’s real time movements, which in turn affords the possibility to better enforce a lockdown and to warn other mobile users in the proximity of the carrier that they have been exposed to someone infected.” Pages 160-161.

Let’s be honest here, for years now the NSA has been doing what is described up above. The recent shooter in Boulder Colorado was on the FBI watch list and was able to buy an AR-15 and shoot ten people six days later. I know that this suddenly changed from pandemic to gun control, but hear me out. Just like the failure of stopping a mass shooting on behalf of the FBI, the CDC will not be able to stop the spread of a pandemic by following every citizen digitally. This section talks about proximity but it does not discuss the usual method that a virus is spread, droplet. The CDC starts to look into patient zero and finds that they were on a train for thirty minutes returning home from work. There were a dozen other people on the car. But let’s say this person had a disease like Ebola which is spread through body fluids. Patient zero sneezes into his hand, puts his hand on a rail before leaving, and exits the train car. None of the other passengers touched that hand rail but yet according to this paragraph those are the ones who will be contacted and put into isolation even though they are not at risk. Meanwhile, several people board the train over the next hour, touching the handrail, following by their eyes, nose, mouth, biting their finger nails, etc. now you have infected people and nobody will know until they start to show symptoms. Digital surveillance is a nightmare waiting to happen and we already saw what can happen when the wrong people are using it like in China.

The Risk of Dystopia

“As the last few pages have exposed beyond a reasonable doubt, the pandemic could open an era of active health surveillance made possible by location-detecting smartphones, facial-recognition cameras and other technologies that identify sources of infection and track the spread of a disease in quasi real time.” Page 168.

To be fair this section of the book sounded like a general warning of what could happen if policies are put into place and expanded beyond what is considered safe for society. It is difficult to know if this was added as an insurance policy against what will likely happen so that the authors can say “we warned you” instead of “this is what we wanted.” This chapter maps out what could happen if surveillance is taken to new extremes. While the book focuses on the spread of diseases in the near future it is not difficult to see this same technology being used to control the population in regard to climate change, social justice, or pollution. Could we receive warnings via cell phone saying that our stop to the local grocery store was not justified because we didn’t buy enough to warrant the trip and the carbon emissions created? Maybe our cellphone hears us using a word that is no longer allowed even though it was said in the privacy of your own home and now you have to pay a tax or a fine for saying it. In China we are already seeing trash cans that monitor how much food is being thrown away and penalizing these people for wasting food.

The people who implement these policies don’t think they are creating a dystopia. Nobody in history ever thought they were making the world worse than it was before. Stalin thought that he had created paradise but in doing so it was against the law to criticize the new society that he had created. Mao thought that he was standing up for the little guy while invading Tibet, changing the social structure, outlawing any symbols of the “old way” and in the end millions of people died. None of these people thought they were doing more harm than good. In the future, will people look back at those implementing the Great Reset and wonder how we could have gotten things so wrong by following a policy that will, in the end, kill billions of people, for what is considered, the great good?

There are two movements that are happening at the moment. One pushes the ability to monitor the public through cell phones that the majority of people own. The other is looking at using less or no technology in order to save the planet. The mostly peaceful anti-technology protestor Theodore Kaczynski wrote a handful of books about technological slavery and an anti tech revolution. In the last year Greta Thunberg, the now 18-year-old environmental activist, has been writing Kaczynski trying to figure out a way to push an anti-tech agenda in order to save the planet. If people starting tossing their cell phones aside and start to live a life with less where does that leave the CDC with contact tracing and monitoring the public? I have to say that this is not such a bad idea, minus the mail bombs and killing innocent people. The FDA is in the process of requiring farmers to have GPS coordinance for all of their crops in order to sell their product, but where does that leave the Amish? There are still large populations of people who do not participate in the modern world and I am happy to see that they are there. It’s a control group in a scientific sense of the word. During Covid-19 the Amish have refused to wear mask because they believe that only sinners can catch the disease. We have not seen any numbers for the infection rate of the Amish during the pandemic. These people do not own cell phones or travel very far from their homes, but they still interact with the general public through trade. Furniture stores and grocery stores remained open and yet we did not hear about anyone in the Amish community contracting Covid-19. In a place as rural and remote as Amish community how does the CDC do their job in contact tracing and isolating the disease? Or do they not care?

The Great Reset: globalization and nationalism part 2

“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?

The Great Reset: Globalization and Nationalism

“The shortening or relocalization of supply chains will be encouraged.” Page 108.

In the past year there have been two events that really showed how fragile our supply chain is, Texas and Covid-19. During the Ice storm that hit Texas in February of 2021 supply chains shut down from the farm to the supermarket when the power was shut off in certain parts of the state. Ranchers could not open the doors to some of their barns to feed their cattle. Crop farmers could not work the grain silos to move feed for the ranchers who needed it. Warehouses did not function and store were shut down unable to process purchases without electricity. Texas was a prime example of how our supply chain can be shut down with the flip of a switch.

Towards the beginning of covid-19 the public learned how much of our pharmaceutical industry is now located overseas. India and China supply the US with the majority of our generic versions and antibiotics. When the lockdowns started both of these countries refused to export any medical equipment or medications regardless of who owned the company or already paid for the product. Our healthcare supply chain was shut down by foreign countries.

Localizing supply chains is not a new concept. For the past twenty years I have heard people pushing this idea and to a greater extent I want to agree with it. But, if we are shortening supply chains, taking more hands away from the product to move it from the origin to your home, why is it costing more than something imported from China or India? I may like my farmer neighbor Bob down the street but I’m not going to pay double for his spinach compared to what the local supermarket brought in with Chile on the label. If localizing the supply chain is going to work the local producers need to start offering prices that will under bid what is coming in from the world market.

“On the left, activists and green parties that were already stigmatizing air travel and asking for a rollback against globalization will be emboldened by the positive effect the pandemic had on our environment (far fewer carbon emissions, much less air and water pollution.) Page 108.

Green parties will be pushing for more climate change restrictions on economies all over the world, however Covid-19 did them no favors with what we learned after the initial lockdowns. From march 2020 to the end of the year the earth heated up by half a degree. The air was cleaner but that also meant that more solar rays were able to hit the earth’s surface and not be reflected back by aerosols. Reducing carbon emissions and air pollution heats up the earth faster, not slower. We learned this twenty years ago after the days following 9-11. When airlines were shut down and people stayed home from the shock of what happened with the world trade center, the earth, just like during the lockdowns, heated up from the lack of air pollution. As the decades pass, we continue to relearn the same things while continuing to pass along the wrong information to future generations. I remember learning about global warming as a kid growing up in the 80s and the information that is given to kids today is almost identical regardless of everything we have learned. The earth is changing, it always has been. With the agenda to shut down carbon emissions and fossil fuels we have to learn time and time again that doing so would speed up the disaster waiting to happen with harsher consequences.

The Great Reset: The Social Contract part 2

“How can it be that a person who has spent more than ten years training to become a medical doctor and whose end of year “results” are measured in lives receives compensation that is meagre compared to that of a trader or a hedge fund manager?” page 98.

I hate it when I see arguments like this. We could make so many comparisons asking why this person is poor doing this job while that person is rich doing nothing. For thousands of years people have asked these questions. The buddha answered “life is suffering.” The notion that doctors are poor is mis-leading as well. I recall a conversation, while working in an ER, and the staff was discussing “Obamacare.” One of the doctors was upset that the government was going to be stepping in and regulating what he would be making. This never happened but it was being discussed at the time. His argument was “why should the government step in and change my life plan thirty years into my life. If I plan to have four houses, three cars and two ex-wives I should be able to have that.” This does not sound like the complaint of a poor man who wishes the government would step in and change his pay to be comparable to a hedge fund manager. The argument continues with the Great Reset crowd, asking why the medical community is paid so bad? Depending on the level of schooling a nurse can make $40-50 dollars and hour. If they specialize in a certain field like being anesthesiologist assistant there is a good chance, they are making more money that the doctor doing the surgery because of the insurance and other cost of the profession. These are things that are considered when these people choose these fields. The amount of pay that you can earn in healthcare is equivalent to the level of education you have. The only exception is in administration. At the hospital I worked at the director made 3.3 million a year and he had never passed meds, wiped a butt, started an IV, performed surgery, or did chest compressions. By the time he was done running the hospital it was in debt and he received a massive payoff for retirement. His previous experience, running United Way.

The average hedge fund manager is a college graduate who specialized in math or a stem field and decided on investing because the money was better. The same is true with hedge fund manager Dr. Michael Burry, best known for the film The Big Short. Burry is a physician who realized he was better at investing than he was being a physician. When you look at the amount of work it takes to run an office why wouldn’t someone choose to look at numbers all day instead? Burry warned people about the housing bubble in 2008. He is warning people about the inflated level of the stock market now. As for hedge fund managers making too much money, the playing field may have changed. Take a large group of people talking on Reddit, have them invest a few hundred dollars into a stock like GameStop and watch as the money pours out of the pockets of hedge fund managers as their shorts turn into a major liability.

Schwab argues that these fields need to be regulated. He makes the childish assessment that life is not fair and somehow government, and his ideas, can somehow fix this. We are already seeing this play out with the Biden administration’s policies with the Covid-19 relief bill. In the bill it sets aside money for black farmers hurt financially during the pandemic while not aiding white farmers because of the color of their skin. In someone’s mind this is “fair.” Ask the farmers what is fair and you will likely get another answer. Be leery of anyone in power who thinks they are going to set the world right. Usually there is a trail of bodies behind them.

“Young people have a deep desire for radical change because we see the broken path ahead.” Page 102.

This quote is from the New York Times article where a college junior is being interviewed. My guess is that this junior skipped his history class during his sophomore year. Young people don’t have a deep desire for radical change, destroying what is before you is easier than working hard to make things better. ANTIFA and BLM march in the streets and set buildings on fire because its easier than putting a black child through college. The actions of their “protest” (riots) did little to help black people in the country if anything it divided the country more in a way it did not need to go. The path that college students see isn’t broken it just looks hard. The long hours and determination to create something without knowing if it will work is a scary thing to see. The easiest way to avoid a disappointing life is to not try at all therefore you can’t every say you failed. But you can also never say you accomplished anything either. I knew several of these people twenty years ago, friends now long gone having given up on their dreams. This idea has been pushed on our current generation through television and film. The 2009 movie, Mr. Nobody tells the fictional story of a man that nobody knows. His life has different paths and tales told in a way that tells the audience that it doesn’t matter what you choose in life it all turns out the same. The message some of my former co-workers took from the film, “don’t bother trying because it doesn’t matter.” This is what art and culture are giving us these days. We now have a do-nothing generation that expects everything on a silver platter for the privilege of accomplishing nothing. Schwab points out how unfair life is then offers the world to an unmotivated generation on the backs of the same people he says are being paid unfairly. Who is going to pay for this radical change? The doctors and labor force that pay for everything already. You want to know what’s not fair? Forcing people to pay for those who choose to do nothing.

The Great Reset: The Social Contract part 1

“For decades, it has slowly and almost imperceptibly evolved in a direction that forced individuals to assume greater responsibility for their individual lives and economic outcomes. Leading large parts of the population (most evidently in the low-income brackets) to conclude that the social contract was at best being eroded, if not in some case breaking down entirely.” Page 96.

I don’t know what social contract Klaus Schwab, a man who has worked for a university since the early 1970s and hangs out with billionaires and politicians in his spare time, was a part of or what he thought it entailed but yes personal responsibility is an idea that is important for society and mental wellbeing. The notion that personal responsibility is a bad thing might be the reason that the left has gone after Dr. Jordan Peterson time and time again. For a program like the Great Reset to work would mean that the public believes they are not responsible for their own wellbeing. In order for the great reset to happen all personal responsibility needs to be handed over to “big” government who knows what is best for you, instead of you. When this has happened in the past millions of people died. Mao knew what was best when he had the country growing only rice, causing a famine that China had never seen before. When the Tibetans were forced to grow crops they had never seen before, they starved unable to grow the new crop in a cold, high altitude environment. Stalin took farms away from people in the Ukraine and handed them over to people who had never farmed before. Millions staved and the soviet government had to produce poster telling people not to eat their children during the winter months. Needless to say, I would rather deal with a social contract where I can blame myself for what is happening in my world then point the finger at a government that never takes responsibility for the horrible things it has done.

“Today, the fundamental reasons underpinning the loss of faith in our social contracts coalesce around issues of inequality, the ineffectiveness of most redistribution policies, a sense of exclusion and marginalization, and a general sentiment of unfairness.” Page 96-97.

Inequality hasn’t been in issue until a bunch of communist, feminist, lesbian, trans rights activists started marching in the streets, setting fires to small businesses, and killing people in the name of Black Lives Matter. Equality is a buzz word, something to get people motivated behind. It sounds good therefore it must be, but when we look how equality and equity are used but these organization, including the World Economic Forum, we see that the definition changes to fit their narrative and keep the conversation moving towards their end goal. If people took personal responsibility for their actions then conversation revolving around inequality wouldn’t happen. This argument assumes that people in general are not in control of their own lives and need someone else to aid them through life.

As for redistribution policies, most people do not like the idea of having their money handed over to an organization that takes a cut for themselves then hands the rest over in the most inefficient way possible. The theft from those who are responsible to hand over their earnings to those unable or unwilling to better their own lives is never look upon as a good thing. As of February 2021, a group of investors took their money and bought stock in GameStop, a brick-and-mortar videogame store that looked like it was going to go out of business. In doing so, a group of hedge funds started to look at massive losses having shorted the stock trying to make easy money and kill the company all together. These people took personal responsibility for their finances and turned the game of the stock market on its head. Again, the people who took personal responsibility for their situation and bettered their lives were portrayed as villains instead of the American entrepreneurs they are. There is an agenda to teach the public to put their trust in the government and not to try solving their problems on their own. We have seen this time and time again. When wall street looks at the public, they say that they could do what they do but choose not to. When they do participate in the stock market the same people who pushed the idea of getting themselves out of poverty then scream “NO! Not like that!”

“Whichever form it takes, in almost all cases, the establishment’s response has been left wanting- ill prepared for the rebellion and out of ideas and policy levers to address the problem.” Page 97.

This passage was in regard to the rise in populism in many western countries like the UK, France, and the US. In the side margins I wrote as a note, “no shit.” Even after Joe Biden took power along with the rest of the Democratic left their first priority was to impeach the former president of the united states. The $2000 checks that were promised to the public for voting them into office were reduced to $1400, for some people, if you qualify. As of March 2, 2021, these checks have still not been approved by the senate and will like not ship out to those in need until April. The lefts lack of focus on anything other than “Orange Man Bad” continues to become more obvious and I can’t wait to sit back and watch them eat each other. As for the “rebellion,” the notion that the opposing side of a political view is now regarded as a rebellion or insurrection only divides the country more and serves no purpose other than to villainize people and reduce them too less than human. With Trump out of the picture the left is out of ideas, pulling a check book out to cover cost for things they can not afford, playing the same game of kicking the can down the street to leave for someone else to clean up.

The Great Reset: The return of “big” government

“It matters enormously whether your country has a good health service, competent bureaucrats and sound finances. Good government is the difference between living and dying.” Page 89.

If this statement is true then we have to admit that most of the world, especially the US is fucked. We already have big government. When congress passes the Equality Act, mandates the limitation of words in public speaking, and ruins the lives of people for having different beliefs as them, at what point does government go from small to “big.” Our bureaucrats are incompetent in the ability to send out a check to the people who should get them. Unemployment is cut off to those who need it and paid into the system for decades until they needed it. Laws are created out of thin air and not questions by law makers even when they don’t make sense and do not hold up to science. Rioters and looters walk free while gym owners are sent to jail for keeping people healthy during a pandemic. As for finances…

Our current national debt is over 27 trillion dollars and congress wants to add another 1.9 trillion during a year where tax revenue will be down and there isn’t a sign that the economy will get better in the near future. A wise man once said, “government has killed more people than a virus.” If I had to choose between making my own choices to live a happy and healthy life during a pandemic or letting the government do it for me, I would choose my own judgement over a bunch of office trolls any day. The government’s inability to manage healthcare for decades now isn’t going to drastically change overnight. Firing the deep state and replacing our elected officials with competent people isn’t going to happen. As for finances, if the government was run as well as the officials own bank accounts, we would be the wealthiest country in the world, however these old crow foot wearing, leather skinned, bags of bloated pig fat are too busy stealing from the rest of us to run the damn country in a positive way. Covid-19 will not solve this and Schwab needs to share whatever he was smoking with the rest of the world to think that it is even a possibility.

“A few examples illustrating the point strongly suggest that this time, as in the past, taxation will increase. As in the past, the social rationale and political justification underlying the increases will be based upon the narrative of “countries at war.” Page 90.

America is broke. We hold several IOUs and at any point one of the countries we owe will call on our dent and we will have nothing to offer. If the government tries to say we are at war the justification will not hold and people will resist. To say we are at war with a virus that has a 99.9% survival rate is ridiculous. It’s like saying Canada is a threat and we need to start fighting back for their poor choice in music exported to the states. 99.9% of people who listen to Canadian pop stars don’t usually kill themselves, but listen to Nickelback or Alanis Morissette too many times and you might want to put a bullet in your head. Does this mean we should go to war, tax the public, and make everyone’s life a living hell to save the .1% of people who make poor choices? No thanks, plus we know that the money they take from us will not go towards the efforts they say they are. It will go to black farmers because the bank account of a poor black farmer is different from the bank account of a poor white farmer. Or maybe they money goes toward critical race theory therapy programs. Or gender studies in a country like Pakistan where most of the population is Muslim and gender is pretty well defined by their religion. The point is that the government can come up with all kinds of excuses to tax the hell out of people, a war on Covid-19 won’t fly and I doubt most people would pay a drastic increase when they don’t have to.

“They should also ensure that partnerships with business involves government funds are driven by public interest, not profit.” Page 92.

When government offers to pay a certain amount of money for a product it is in the company’s best interest to make the product for the lowest possible price to profit the most they can from the deal. We have all heard the stories about the army paying $50 for a hammer and $120 for a toilet seat. After working for a few non-profit companies, I can tell you for a fact they are not interested in saving money. These places are designed to share the wealth as long as the money travels to the top of the food chain. If Pfizer had the public interest at heart would they have rolled out a vaccine, skipping several safety steps and studies, and shipped out millions of doses without knowing what the possible side effects were of a never-before-seen mRNA vaccine?

“Central banks decided to cut rates and committed to provide all the liquidity that was needed, while governments started to expand social-welfare benefits, make direct cash transfers, cover wages, and suspend loan and mortgage payments, among other responses. Only governments had the power, capability and the reach to make such decisions, without which economic calamity and a complete social meltdown would have prevailed.” Page 92-93.

This statement tries combine several different policies together as if all governments implemented these policies and ignores the countries that didn’t lockdown or take drastic measures. Central banks have left rates low since 2001 and they haven’t gone up since then. With 27 trillion in debt when have they ever said to providing liquidity? Social-welfare benefits are one of the main reasons that the economy is struggling to get back on its feet. When a person is making more money on unemployment why would they want to return to work? The direct cash transfers are a joke and an insult. If $1200 is going to change your life, Covid-19 is not your problem, you are your own problem and you need some fixing before worrying about a virus. Several countries delt with loans and mortgage payments in a different way. In the US some states suspended rent payments and mortgage payment but with the understanding that the amount owed would be paid at the end of the set time period. If people haven’t been working how are they going to pay three to six months’ worth of rent at one time. Most households had less than $500 in savings before the pandemic. In Italy, the government stepped in and said that during lockdown people didn’t need to pay rent, the landlords did not need to pay their mortgage and banks and loan companies were not to take payments. Everything was frozen in the economic system and when it was over, they would all continue as if the lockdown never happened. I found this to be the best policy and I was disappointed that others didn’t follow its example. As for the argument that these policies prevented calamity and social meltdown, no it didn’t. now we have anti lockdown riots happening. Camps are being proposed in several countries to lock people up in if they are suspected of having the virus. The governments are creating the meltdown and they continue to push people further towards destruction.

“…To preventing banks from incentivizing consumer debt.” Page 94.

Are we serious here? What world is Schwab living in? While we look at the crappy system, we currently live in that pushes people into debt what about the companies that work through a debt system, or the governments, state to federal, who work with a massive amount of debt. Our whole economy, because of interest rates, is based on debt. As long as there are central banks there will be debt. The banking system itself relies on loaning money that could never be returned to keep people as indentured servants for the majority of their lives.

This was a difficult chapter to read considering the amount of misinformation and half truths thrown in to make it sound like Covid-19 was a good excuse to create “bigger” government than what we currently have. During my lifetime I have seen nothing but expansion of the Federal government. There was the Patriot Act, the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, the merger of Big Tech and the Federal Government. I don’t know how much bigger Schwab thinks governments need to become in order to create his new world order but he better keep in mind to stay off my lawn.

The Great Reset: Employment

“This precipitous drop-in economics activity has caused a level of pain that is hard to capture in words, as lives are upended amid great uncertainty about the future.” -Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell

I don’t know what Powell said before or after this statement that was quoted in The Great Reset, I do know that for every percentage point that unemployment increases 40,000 people die. This figure was true in 2009 when the economic collapse was taking place and everyone acted like it was the end of the world while the great black hope was taking office and Bush signed over the life savings of a nation to Wall Street. I’m sure that the numbers are higher these days and while knowing this the leaders of our country decided to sacrifice those who would not make it through a recession for those who would likely make it through a pandemic.

Schwab makes the argument that other countries kept their unemployment down through policies that kept people employed even if they weren’t working. In Germany they saw an increase of less than 1% in unemployment while the US had over 11%. What he fails to mention is that the loans the Federal Government offered to small businesses were eaten up by large corporations they were not intended for. Plus, if it was used to pay employees during the pandemic and keep them on payroll it didn’t have to be paid back. The stupid thing that was added to that program was adding $600 a week to people collecting unemployment curing Covid-19. For a small business it did not make sense to keep your employees on payroll when they would make more money on unemployment. The other stipulation was that it could not be used for other expenses or it would have to be paid back. If a business wasn’t sure it would re-open after a lockdown it was in everyone’s best interest to close and collect unemployment.

Even the people running the “plandemic” have low hopes of an economic recovery after lockdown. “Globally, a full recovery of the labor market could take decades and, in Europe like elsewhere, the fear of mass bankruptcies followed by mass unemployment looms large.” Page 54.

As of 2-14-2021 Covid-19 infections are down, the death rate is down, and in the UK the daily death count has decreased by 46% since the peak and they are on lockdowns again. The people running this program know what they are doing and it no longer has anything to do with the pandemic and I wonder if it ever did? Never let a crisis go to waste. The next chapter is even more eye opening.

What Future Growth Could Look Like

“The history of radical rethinking in the years following World War II, which included the establishment of the Bretton Woods institutions, the United Nations, the EU and the expansion of welfare states, shows the magnitude of the shifts possible.” Page 57

This is the chapter where BLM mottos start to pop up like at a diversity meeting for work. the new measurement for economic stability will no longer use GDP but instead have unmeasurable standards that can be changed on a whim.

“These three areas create a multiplier effect both through their own employment potential and the long term benefits they unleash across societies in term of equality, social mobility, and inclusive growth.” Page 63.

Schwab clearly has a problem with capitalism even though our global economy in its previous, pre-COVID-19, system did more to bring people out of poverty than the last century did. More people world wide have access to the internet. In China, the internet, while it is regulated by the government, is accessible to everyone in an effort to make a household a business. In countries that embrace the internet and free market capitalism people come out of poverty at a faster rate. The socialist program that Schwab is encouraging will cause more poverty and death in the long run. Considering the movement against climate change a program that would lead to a depopulation of society would likely be favorable to these people as opposed to lifting people out of poverty and finding meaning in their lives.

Be leery any time you see the words Equality or Equity when listening to a politician or a corporate shill. Nothing good comes from the enforcement of these kinds of policies and it doesn’t take long for those organizations to crumble down into their grave from mismanagement. Social mobility I already covered and this new system of the Great Reset will not help that. However, inclusive growth, is another buzz word considering that it is not referring to helping other people reach the top of their field, it involves holding others back so that the less qualified can take their place. In the US we have seen this over the years with Affirmative Action where race is a qualification over the experience that someone might have. Some will argue that is not how it works but considering the tax breaks and other incentives that these organizations receive for percentages of their staff being of a certain background the hiring process is not about filling the position with the most qualified but checking off a box on a list of whatever racial, sexual orientation, or gender they need to appear “woke.”

So not only should you prepare for being unemployed if you are a straight white male, it gets better.

“By 2030 you will own nothing and you will be happy.” Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum 2020

“Planned yet adaptive, sustainable, and equitable downscaling of the economy, leading to a future where we can live better with less.” Page 64

The economy is not intended to recover. Your retirement plan of a 401K is not on the agenda. Owning a house with land is not on the agenda. If you enjoy a hobby of collecting action figures, typewriters, Knick Knacks, vinyl records, etc. Forget about it. Your pursuit of happiness is not their concern. The constitution as a document for civil order in the US is in the way and expect amendments to start dropping like flies over the next decade. Your right to free speech is already gone with the social apps regulating speech and even removing people for “wrong speech.” All of the scariest parts of 1984 are coming true and in full effect. The last election was rigged, even though they all are, to an extent never before seen and for the purpose of imposing these policies through executive order bypassing the legal route of congress.

On 2-14-2021 President Biden stated his intent to have new gun laws in place overriding the 2nd amendment of the constitution. He is calling for gun registration. The limiting of “large capacity” magazines. The collection of “assault rifles” or the registration of. Much of this is included in the bill HR 127 which would be an organized confiscation of firearms across the country. With annual fees too high for most people to afford and insane standards to pass in order to have a license this bills set up the country for another massive confiscation of wealth with the loss of thousands of dollars per person with nothing in return. Once they take the guns, they can take whatever they want after that. Your liberty is gone and that is what the Great Reset is all about.

The Great Reset: Macro Reset

The following is part of a series about the book Covid-19: The Great Reset written by Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret. Some things to consider for this book, since the book has two authors it is unknown what information was added by which author.

  1. Interdependence

This section of the book compares aspects of society to boats. Each country at one time used to be their own boat but through globalization they became cabins on the same boat. Because of this independent ideology it is difficult to grasp the big picture and countries need to react to things like Covid-19 as if we are all on the same boat instead of trying to regulate what happens in our own cabins. This section made me question the movement towards populism and a desire that is growing in countries like isolationism. After all, if these countries had isolated or regulated travel as they wanted to before the Covid-19 outbreak would they have been affected like the rest of the planet? At what point are nations allowed to no longer participate in a global market or will they be forced to play along whether they like it or not?

In keeping with the boat analogy could one of the solutions to Covid-19 be isolationism and making a country a lifeboat away from the rest of the sinking ship?

  1. Velocity

With reference to our fast-paced society the argument is made that we already accept change and at a faster pace than before. More of the world is connected through the internet and we expect things faster and more immediate. As things become faster, we equate this with the fast pace of Covid-19 moving through the world even though it follows the same pattern as a bacterium populating a petri dish. Just like the end of the dish being filled so will the new policies of the Great Reset. A quote from Hemingway is used about being broke. At first, it’s a little at a time then its all at once. This is how the policies will be rolled out. We are already seeing this with the barrage of executive orders being signed by the Biden administration and policy changes in Canada and the UK.

  1. Complexity

The system of our society is a complex system that used specialized professions to keep things working. Because of these specialized positions it is difficult to see how one change in mortgages will affect the jobs market or college enrollment. The argument is made that nobody saw the financial collapse of 2008 coming and this is a flat out lie. Michael Ruppert warned people about what was coming two years before the housing bubble burst. Members of wall street took out credit default swaps on the mortgage bonds before they crumbled due to rising numbers of default mortgages. I saw it coming with the insane prices of houses while nobody had received a pay raise in three years. These things are not difficult to see coming and I’m tired of people who think they know better telling everyone afterwards there was no way to know.

In late march of 2020 my boss sat us down in the work room and asked what we could see next? What was coming after the lockdown? After a minute of silence I said, “civil unrest, famines, riots, societal collapse.” It wasn’t what people wanted to hear and so these voices go ignored and forgotten even after things happen. The people in charge say nobody knew to take some responsibility off their own shoulders leaving those that spoke up left out as crazies and undesirables.

Covid-19 is not a black swan event, but the consequences will be. It is not difficult to see the repercussions of Covid-19 on our society. This has been tracked since the beginning. The rise in suicide from the constant lockdowns, the closing of businesses, depression among kids, lack of trust in government and media. So far there are no consequences regarding Covid-19 that haven’t been seen. They are all driven by government policies and the results are easy to see or predict. Our government keeps printing money since tax revenue is not coming in, causing inflation and later a rise in interest rates which will make the federal government insolvent unless it prints more money to pay its bills. The balance books are too far to one side for the national debt to ever be paid back and there aren’t enough resources in the world to cover the damage. None of this is a black swan that nobody could have expected, it’s the obvious repercussions of poor management and credit card policies.
