Far from a mere conspiracy theory, the Great Reset is being carried out by globalist forces as we speak.
“What you heard from the president today was a clear articulation of the stakes,” said Biden administration economic adviser Brian Deese last week while his boss was at the NATO summit. “This is about the future of the liberal world order, and we have to stand firm.”
What do you mean “we,” kimosabe?
We’re not sure what a “liberal world order” has to do with record-high gas prices or pumping $54 billion and counting of American taxpayer dollars into Ukraine, but Deese must. Or else he wouldn’t have said it. Deese, by the way is the director of Joe Biden’s National Economic Council, and he’s also a former executive at BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager and one of the leading “strategic partners” of the World Economic Forum, whose founder and executive director, Klaus Schwab, is the driving force behind the Great Reset.
Yes, the Great Reset, and, no, it’s not a conspiracy theory. Here’s how columnist James Delingpole described this revolutionary global enterprise in November 2020, as the Biden regime was preparing to replace the Trump administration:
Put simply, it is the blueprint for a complete transformation of the world economy. There will be no money, no private property, no democracy. Instead, every key decision — what you do for a living, how much stuff you consume, whether you can take a vacation — will [be] decided for you by a remote, unaccountable elite of ‘experts.’ It sounds like a conspiracy theory — and is often dismissed as such by people who imagine they are being savvy and sophisticated. In fact, though, the people pushing for the Great Reset are perfectly open about their plan. Indeed, they can scarcely stop talking about it.
World leaders have bought in, too — which is why they keep heading to those exorbitant getaways at Davos, Switzerland, and keep using terms like “sustainability” and “saving the planet” and “Green New Deal” and “Build Back Better.” Even the term “social justice” is tethered to this movement. As Schwab himself has said, the world must “act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies,” with every industry “transformed” as part of “a Great Reset of capitalism.”
The Great Reset isn’t exactly new. It officially launched at Davos in June 2020, at the World Economic Forum’s 50th annual meeting, and we at The Patriot Post have written about it here and here. But it’s been sneaking up on us since Schwab founded his WEF as the European Management Forum back in 1971. It was then that he introduced a concept that has since become known as “stakeholder capitalism,” a concept arguing “that the management of a modern enterprise must serve not only shareholders but all stakeholders to achieve long-term growth and prosperity.”
Stakeholder capitalism requires that corporations not only respond to pandemics and environmental issues such as climate change, but also to “vulnerable communities within their ecosystems.” This is the “social justice” aspect of the Great Reset.
So when you hear the term “stakeholder capitalism,” think: socialism. And think: the Great Reset. And when you think “Great Reset,” think: an erosion of Liberty and a movement away from the free-market capitalism that has brought more wealth and more prosperity to more people than any economic system in the history of the world.
It’s already happening. Much of it happened during the past two years of COVID-19. As Michael Rectenwald writes in this excellent primer on the Great Reset:
In October 2019, the WEF collaborated with Johns Hopkins and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on another pandemic exercise, “Event 201,” which simulated an international response to the outbreak of a novel coronavirus. This was two months before the COVID outbreak in China became news and five months before the World Health Organization declared it a pandemic, and it closely resembled the future COVID scenario, including incorporating the idea of asymptomatic spread. [This simulation and a previous one] anticipated almost every eventuality of the actual COVID crisis, most notably the responses by governments, health agencies, the media, tech companies, and elements of the public. The responses and their effects included worldwide lockdowns, the collapse of businesses and industries, the adoption of biometric surveillance technologies, an emphasis on social media censorship to combat “misinformation,” the flooding of social and legacy media with “authoritative sources,” widespread riots, and mass unemployment.
Corporations are also being squeezed, coerced. Take, for example, this passage of a letter from BlackRock CEO Larry Fink to the world’s CEOs:
We have long believed that our clients, as shareholders in your company, will benefit if you can create enduring, sustainable value for all of your stakeholders. … As more and more investors choose to tilt their investments towards sustainability-focused companies, the tectonic shift we are seeing will accelerate further. And because this will have such a dramatic impact on how capital is allocated, every management team and board will need to consider how this will impact their company’s stock.
It reads like a threat, doesn’t it?
All isn’t lost, however. As Rectenwald points out:
Because the goals of the Great Reset depend on the obliteration not only of free markets, but of individual liberty and free will, it is, perhaps ironically, unsustainable. Like earlier attempts at totalitarianism, the Great Reset is doomed to ultimate failure. That doesn’t mean, however, that it won’t, again like those earlier attempts, leave a lot of destruction in its wake — which is all the more reason to oppose it now and with all our might.
Early Wednesday, at around 4 a.m., an explosion ripped through a massive and mysterious granite monument in northeast Georgia called the Georgia Guidestones — a monument state officials say is known as “America’s Stonehenge.”
