What Is the Great Reset?

MICHAEL RECTENWALD THE OFFICIAL MICHAEL RECTENWALD SITE

I’ll begin by addressing the elephant in the room. Isn’t the Great Reset simply a “conspiracy theory” concocted and circulated by “rightwing extremists?” The so-called conspiracy theories run something like this: the Great Reset is a plot hatched by a technocratic global elite to establish a socialist-communist New World Order. The Great Reset will abolish the property rights of the majority, as well as individual and national sovereignty, and wipe out the last vestiges of personal freedom. It uses covid-19 and climate change as pretexts to enslave what will remain of humanity, using never-ending lockdowns, experimental vaccines, and pervasive and inescapable surveillance. 

According to the New York Times[1] and the Anti-Defamation League,[2] the Great Reset has no basis in fact. Or, as the BBC claims,[3] the Great Reset is a benign effort on the part of “leading thinkers”[4] to bring about “a fairer, greener future,”[5] based on a reset of capitalism. Meanwhile, Time devoted an issue to the Great Reset, effectively hailing it as the solution to all our problems post-covid.[6]

Klaus Schwab, the Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), suggests that the Great Reset is merely an attempt to address the weaknesses of capitalism exposed by the covid crisis, as well as the looming catastrophes posed by unmitigated climate change and environmental degradation. This is what Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret suggest in their book, Covid-19: The Great Reset. It’s what numerous documents on the WEF website claim. Why, then, has the Great Reset been construed as a vast leftwing conspiracy to create a totalitarian one-world government? 

I don’t mean to suggest that the truth lies somewhere between denial and conspiracy. Rather, I want to make clear just what the Great Reset entails, according to its architects and subscribers. I rely on the claims of Klaus Schwab and his WEF contributors, the WEF’s partnerships, developments in the U.S. and around the world, and on the implications that can be reasonably drawn from proposals and their implementation. In the process, I also mean to show how the Great Reset idea generates “conspiracy theories,” as if spontaneously. 

Before grappling with the main components of the Great Reset, a history of the idea and its development is in order. Although its philosophical roots may go much deeper, the Great Reset can be traced to the inception of the World Economic Forum, founded as the European Management Forum in 1971. In the same year, Klaus Schwab, an engineer and economist by training, published his first book, Modern Enterprise Management in Mechanical Engineering, written in his native German.[7] Here, Schwab first introduced what he would later call “stakeholder capitalism,” arguing, as the WEF website notes, “that the management of a modern enterprise must serve not only shareholders but all stakeholders to achieve long-term growth and prosperity.”[8] Schwab and the WEF have promoted the multistakeholder concept ever since. The WEF is the source for the stakeholder and public-private partnership rhetoric and policies embraced by governments, corporations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), civil society organizations, and international governance bodies worldwide. Public-private partnerships have played a key role in the response to the covid crisis and are instrumental in the response to the supposed climate change crisis. 

The exact phrase, “the Great Reset,” came into circulation in 2010 with the publication of the book, The Great Reset, by the American Urban Studies theorist Richard Florida[9]—although others claim that they used the phrase before him. Florida’s Great Reset was a response to the 2008 financial crisis and argues that the 2008 crash was the latest in a series of Great Resets, including the Long Depression of the 1870s and the Great Depression of the 1930s. Far from being the fallow years typically depicted, Great Resets are periods of paradigm-shifting innovation and geographical reconfiguration. Schwab apparently appropriated the phrase and adapted it to represent his stakeholder vision for a new kind of capitalism and world system. 

At the WEF annual meeting in 2014, Schwab declared: “What we want to do in Davos this year …  is to push the reset button.”[10] By this he referred to an imaginary reset button on the world economic system of “neoliberal” capitalism. A graphic depiction of a reset button would later appear on the WEF’s website. In 2017, the WEF published a paper entitled, “We need to reset the global operating system to achieve the SDGs [Sustainable Development Goals]” of the United Nations (UN).[11]

Next, the WEF organized two events that eerily anticipated covid-19, which became the primary inspiration for the Great Reset project. In May 2018, the WEF collaborated with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security to conduct the CLADE X Exercise, a “tabletop” simulation of a national response to a pandemic.[12] The exercise simulated the outbreak of CLADE X, a novel strain of a human parainfluenza virus with genetic elements of the Nipah virus. According to Homeland Preparedness News, the CLADE X simulation demonstrated that “[t]he lack of both a protective vaccine and a proactive worldwide plan for tackling the spread of a catastrophic global pandemic resulted in the death of 150 million people across the Earth.”[13]Clearly, preparation for a global pandemic was in order.

A little over a year later, in October 2019, the WEF’s uncanny prescience was again on display, only this time with greater precision. Along with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the WEF teamed up with Johns Hopkins University to stage another pandemic exercise, called Event 201. Event 201 simulated the international response to the outbreak of a novel coronavirus—two months before the covid-19 outbreak became international news and five months before the World Health Organization (WHO) declared it a pandemic. The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security’s summary of the exercise closely resembles the actual covid-19 scenario, including apparent foreknowledge of so-called asymptomatic spread: 

Event 201 simulates an outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic. The pathogen and the disease it causes are modeled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting by people with mild symptoms.[14]

The CLADE X and Event 201 simulations anticipated practically every eventuality of the covid crisis, notably the responses by governments, health agencies, conventional media, social media, 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” and “disinformation,” the flooding of social and legacy media with “authoritative sources,” widespread riots, and mass unemployment.[15]

These premonitory exercises and other covid curiosities have contributed to the “plandemic” narrative—speculation that the covid-19 crisis may have been staged by global elites centered around the WEF as an alibi for initiating the Great Reset. In addition to the pandemic exercise just referenced, Swiss Policy Research points to the WEF’s role in promoting digital biometric identity systems, thrusting its Young Global Leaders into major roles in the management of the covid crisis, and advocating the vaccination of children as “an entry point for digital identification.”[16]

On June 13, 2019, the WEF signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the UN to form a partnership centered on advancing the UN “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”[17] The WEF published the “United Nations-World Economic Forum Strategic Partnership Framework for the 2030 Agenda” shortly thereafter.[18]  The WEF promised to help “finance” the UN’s climate change agenda. The framework also commits the WEF to helping the UN “meet the needs of the Fourth Industrial Revolution,” including providing assets and expertise for “digital governance.” Agenda 2030 appears to have been tailor-made to accommodate the UN-WEF partnership. It adopts the stakeholder concept introduced by Schwab decades before. The word “stakeholders” is used no less than thirteen times in the 2030 resolution. The Great Reset, then, may be understood, in part, as the WEF’s contribution to Agenda 2030.

In June 2020, the WEF held its Great Reset summit as the fiftieth annual meeting of the World Economic Forum—delayed and refocused due to the covid crisis—and announced the Great Reset’s official launch.   

Just months into the covid crisis, on July 19, 2020, and a mere month after the annual meeting, Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret published Covid 19: the Great Reset. Steve Umbrello, the Managing Director at the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies at the University of Turin, wrote in his academic review of the manifesto: 

Although not impossible, the speed at which a book on this particular topic, proposing these theses, was produced[,] does play into the conspiratorial aesthetic that the book has since induced. Even though the authors are transparent about writing and publishing the book within a month’s time, this neither confirms the veracity of such claims nor dispels suspicion from those who question its expediency.[19]

The short interval between the WHO’s declaration of a pandemic and the book’s publication is not the only factor that has fed “the conspiratorial aesthetic” surrounding the Great Reset. Schwab’s writing with Malleret and other WEF statements have stoked the speculations. The co-authors declare, without apparent regret or shame, that covid-19 represents an “opportunity [that] can be seized,”[20] and “we should take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to reimagine our world,”[21] and “the moment must be seized to take advantage of this unique window of opportunity,”[22] and “[f]or these companies the pandemic is a unique opportunity to rethink their organization and enact positive, sustainable and lasting change,”[23] and “[f]or those fortunate enough to find themselves in industries ‘naturally’ resilient to the pandemic [like Big Digital Tech], the crisis was not only more bearable, but even a source of profitable opportunities at a time of distress for the majority.”[24] This last sentence may be suggestive of the Great Reset’s overall plan. 


The Great Reset combines resets in all conceivable domains of human life: economic, environmental, geopolitical, governmental, industrial, technological, social, and individual.

The Great Reset ushers in a bewildering economic amalgam, what I’ve called “corporate socialism”[25] and “capitalism with Chinese characteristics,”[26] or what Giorgio Agamben later called “communist capitalism.”[27] Schwab and company euphemistically call this system “stakeholder capitalism.”

Stakeholder capitalism involves the behavioral modification of corporations to benefit “stakeholders.” A stakeholder is anyone or any group that stands to benefit or lose from corporate behavior—other than competitors. 

Stakeholder capitalism includes not only corporate responses to ecological issues such as climate change, “but also rethinking their [corporations’] commitments to already-vulnerable communities within their ecosystems.”[28] This is the “social justice” aspect of stakeholder capitalism and the Great Reset. Governments, banks, and asset managers use the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) index to squeeze non-woke players out of the market. The ESG index is essentially a social credit score for rating corporations. The collectivist planners drive ownership and control of production away from the non-compliant. 

One of the WEF’s many “strategic partners,”[29] BlackRock, Inc., the world’s largest asset manager, is solidly behind the stakeholder model of the Great Reset program. In a 2021 letter to CEOs, BlackRock’s CEO Larry Fink declared that “climate risk is investment risk,” and “the creation of sustainable index investments has enabled a massive acceleration of capital towards companies better prepared to address climate risk.”[30] Fink states that the pandemic accelerated the flow of funds toward sustainable investments:

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.

Fink’s letter is more than a report to CEOs. It is an implicit threat. Meanwhile, investment according to the ESG index and other financial tools is gaining the force of law in the U.S., with the Biden administration’s recent “U.S. Climate-Related Financial Risk: Executive Order 14030.”[31]

Schwab and Malleret pit “stakeholder capitalism” against “neoliberalism,” “a corpus of ideas and policies … favouring competition over solidarity, creative destruction over government intervention and economic growth over social welfare.”[32] That is, “neoliberalism” refers to what is otherwise known as the free market. Stakeholder capitalism is thus opposed to the free enterprise system. It means not only corporate cooperation with the state and NGOs but also vastly increased government intervention in the economy. Schwab and Malleret promote “the return of ‘big’ government,”[33] as if it ever retreated: If “the past five centuries in Europe and America” have taught us anything, they assert, it is that “acute crises contribute to boosting the power of the state. It’s always been the case and there is no reason why it should be different with the COVID-19 pandemic.” 

Schwab and company erect the strawman of neoliberalism as the source of our economic woes. But the governmental favoring of industries and players within industries—or corporatism, otherwise known as economic fascism,[34] and not fair and free competition—has been the real source of what Schwab and his ilk apparently decry. The Great Reset vastly increases corporatism or economic fascism. 

While approved corporate stakeholders are not necessarily monopolies, the tendency of the Great Reset is toward monopolization—vesting as much control over production and distribution in these favored corporations as possible, while eliminating industries and producers deemed either unnecessary or inimical. To bring this reset about, “[e]very country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” writes the authoritarian Schwab.[35]

Unsurprisingly, stakeholder capitalism has been seen as a new approach to achieving socialism, even by socialists.[36] As I’ve suggested, stakeholder capitalism tends toward “corporate socialism,” or “capitalism with Chinese characteristics,” two ways of understanding the overall economics of the Great Reset. 

Anthony C. Sutton, the late historian and Hoover Institute scholar, described corporate socialism as follows:

Old John D. Rockefeller and his 19th century fellow capitalists were convinced of one absolute truth: that no great monetary wealth could be accumulated under the impartial rules of a competitive laissez faire society. The only sure road to the acquisition of massive wealth was monopoly: drive out your competitors, reduce competition, eliminate laissez-faire, and above all get state protection for your industry through compliant politicians and government regulation. This last avenue yields a legal monopoly, and a legal monopoly always leads to wealth.

This robber baron schema is also … the socialist plan. The difference between a corporate state monopoly and a socialist state monopoly is essentially only the identity of the group controlling the power structure…We call this phenomenon of corporate legal monopoly—market control acquired by using political influence—by the name of corporate socialism.[37]

The corporate-socialist tendency is toward a two-tiered economy, with monopolies and the state on top, and “actually existing socialism” for the majority below. “Actually existing socialism” is socialism as it really is, as opposed to how Marx and his epigones claimed it would be.[38]

“Capitalism with Chinese characteristics” is a play on the Chinese Communist Party’s description of its economic system. Several decades ago, as China’s growing reliance on the for-profit sectors of its economy could no longer be credibly denied by the CCP, its leadership approved the slogan “socialism with Chinese characteristics” to describe its economic system. Formulated by Deng Xiaoping, the phrase became an essential component of the CCP’s attempt to rationalize Chinese for-profit development under a socialist political system.

According to the party, the growing privatization of the Chinese economy was to be a temporary phase—lasting a hundred years if necessary(!)—on the way to a classless society of full socialism-communism. The party leaders claimed, and still maintain, that socialism with Chinese characteristics is necessary in China’s case because China was a “backward” agrarian country when socialism was introduced—too early, it was suggested. China needed a capitalist booster shot.

With the slogan, the party was able to suggest that China had been an exception to the orthodox Marxist position that socialism arrives only after the development of capitalism—although Marx himself deviated from his own formula late in life. At the same time, the slogan allowed the CCP to confirm the orthodox Marxist position. China’s socialist revolution had come before developed industrial capitalism—an exception to orthodox Marxism. Capitalism was thus introduced into China’s economic system later—a confirmation of orthodox Marxism.

Stripped of its socialist ideological pretensions, socialism with Chinese characteristics, or the Chinese system itself, amounts to a socialist or communist state increasingly funded by “capitalist” economic development. The difference between the former Soviet Union and contemporary China is that when it became obvious that a socialist economy had failed, the former gave up its socialist economic pretenses, while the latter has not.

The Great Reset represents the development of the Chinese system in the West, only in reverse. Whereas the Chinese political class began with a socialist political system and introduced privately held for-profit production later, the West began with a degree of capitalism and is implementing a socialist political system now. It’s as if the Western oligarchy looked to the “socialism” on display in China, and said, “yes, we want it.” This Chinese-style system includes vastly increased state intervention in the economy on the one hand, and the kind of authoritarian measures that the Chinese government uses to control the population, on the other.

Now, let’s look at contemporary developments and how they have been moving in this direction.

The draconian lockdown measures employed by governments just so happen to have accomplished what corporate socialists like the WEF and their collaborators apparently wanted done. They have destroyed small businesses, thus eliminating competitors for corporate monopolists. As the Foundation for Economic Education reported, in the U.S. alone, millions of small businesses closed their doors due to lockdowns.[39]Yelp data indicates that 60% of business closures are now permanent.[40] Meanwhile, the Big Digital giants—including Amazon, Apple, and Facebook—appreciated massive gains. During the three months ending in June 2020, for example, Amazon’s “quarterly profit of $5.2bn (£4bn) was the biggest since the company’s start in 1994 and came despite heavy spending on protective gear and other measures due to the virus.”[41] A data analysis from Harvard University, Brown University, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation found that government-mandated lockdowns devastated lower-income-earning workers and benefitted those at the top.[42] Meanwhile, studies have shown that lockdowns did nothing to mitigate the spread of covid-19.[43]

Developments advancing the Great Reset agenda include unfettered immigration, travel restrictions for otherwise legal border crossing, the Federal Reserve’s unrestrained printing of money, the subsequent inflation, increasing taxation, the increased dependence on the state, the supply-chain crisis, the restrictions and job losses due to vaccine mandates, and the prospect of personal carbon allowances.[44] Altogether, these and other such policies constitute a coordinated attack on the majority. Ironically, they also represent the “fairness” aspect of the Great Reset—if we properly understand fairness to mean leveling the economic status of the “average American” with those in less “privileged” regions. And this is one of the functions of woke ideology—to make the majority in developed countries feel unworthy of their “privileged” lifestyles and consumption patterns, which the elite are in the process of resetting to a reduced and static new normal, but not for themselves.[45]

The corporate stakeholder model of the Great Reset spills into its governance and geopolitical model: states and favored corporations in “public-private partnerships” in control of governance. The configuration yields a corporate-state hybrid largely unaccountable to the constituents of national governments.

The cozy relationship between multinational corporations and governments has even aroused the scorn of a few academics.[46] Some note that the UN-WEF partnership and the governance model of the WEF represent at least the partial privatization of the UN’s Agenda 2030, with the WEF bringing corporate partners, money, and supposed expertise on the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4-IR) to the table. And the WEF’s governance model extends well beyond the UN, affecting the constitution and behavior of governments worldwide. This usurpation has led political scientist Ivan Wecke to call the WEF’s governmental redesign of the world system “a corporate takeover of global governance.”[47]

This is true, but the WEF model also represents the governmentalization of private industry. Under Schwab’s stakeholder capitalism and the multistakeholder governance model, governance is not only increasingly privatized, but also and more importantly, corporations are deputized as major additions to governments and intergovernmental bodies. The state is thereby extended, enhanced, and augmented by the addition of enormous corporate assets. These include funding directed at “sustainable development” to the exclusion of the non-compliant, as well as the use of Big Data, AI, and 5G to monitor and control citizens. In the case of the covid vaccine regime, the state grants Big Pharma monopoly protection and indemnity from liability in exchange for a vehicle to expand its powers of coercion. As such, corporate stakeholders become what I have called “governmentalities”[48]—otherwise “private” organizations wielded as state apparatuses, with no obligation to answer to pesky constituents. Since these corporations are multinational, the state essentially becomes global, whether or not a “one-world government” is ever formalized.

As if the economic and governmental resets were not dramatic enough, the technological reset reads like a dystopic sci-fi novel. It is based on the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4-IR). The 4-IR, we are told, follows the first, second, and third industrial revolutions—the mechanical, electrical, and digital, respectively.[49] The 4-IR builds on the digital revolution, but Schwab sees the 4-IR as an exponential take-off and convergence of existing and emerging fields, including Big Data; artificial intelligence (AI); machine learning; quantum computing; and genetics, nanotechnology, and robotics (GNR). The consequence is the merging of the physical, digital, and biological worlds. The blurring of these categories ultimately challenges the very ontologies by which we understand ourselves and the world, including “what it means to be human.”[50]

The specific applications include a ubiquitous Internet, the Internet of Things (IoT), the Internet of Bodies (IoB), autonomous vehicles, smart cities, 3-D printing, robots, nanotechnology, biotechnology, materials science, energy storage, and more. 

While Schwab promotes a particular vision for the 4-IR, there is nothing original about his formulations. Transhumanists and Singularitarians (or prophets of the technological singularity), such as Ray Kurzweil and many others, forecasted these and more revolutionary developments, long before Schwab heralded them.[51]The significance of Schwab’s and the WEF’s take on the new technological revolution is the attempt to harness it to a particular end, presumably “a fairer, greener future.”

But if existing 4-IR developments are any indication of the future, then Schwab’s apparent optimism is misplaced, and the 4-IR is grossly misrepresented. These developments already include Internet algorithms that feed users prescribed news and advertisements and downrank or exclude banned content; algorithms that censor social media content, and consign “dangerous” individuals and organizations to digital gulags; keyword warrants based on search engine inputs; apps that track and trace covid suspects and report violators to the police; robot police with QR code scanners to identify and round up the unvaccinated and other dissidents; and smart cities where everyone is a digital entity to be monitored, surveilled, and recorded, while data on their every move is collected, collated, stored, and attached to a digital identity and social credit score—to name a few of the panoptic manifestations of the 4-IR. 

In short, 4-IR technologies subject human beings to a technological management that makes surveillance by the NSA look like child’s play. And Schwab lauds developments that connect brains directly to the cloud and enable the “data mining” of thought and memory, a technological mastery over decision-making that threatens autonomy and undermines any semblance of free will. The 4-IR accelerates the merging of humans and machines, resulting in a world in which all information, including genetic information, is shared, and every action, thought, and unconscious motivation is known, predicted, and possibly even precluded. Naturally, Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World comes to mind. Yet Schwab touts brain-cloud interfaces as enhancements, as vast improvements over standard human intelligence.

Unless taken out of the hands of corporate-socialist technocrats, the 4-IR will constitute a virtual, inescapable prison of body and mind.

In terms of the social order, the Great Reset promises “inclusion” in a “shared destiny.”[52] But the subordination of “netizens” implies economic and political disenfranchisement, a hyper-vigilance over self and others, and social isolation—or what Hannah Arendt called “organized loneliness”[53]—on a global scale. In the age of covid, this organized loneliness is already manifest in lockdowns, masking, social distancing, and the exclusion of the “unvaccinated.” The “Alone Together” public service announcement produced and circulated by the Ad Council in March of 2020 represented organized loneliness succinctly.[54]


In Google Archipelago, I argued that leftist authoritarianism is the political ideology and modus operandi of what I call Big Digital, and that Big Digital is the leading edge of a nascent world system. Big Digital is the communications, ideological, and technological arm of an emerging corporate-socialist totalitarianism. The Great Reset is the name that has since been given to the project of establishing this world system. 

Just as Klaus Schwab and the WEF hoped, the covid crisis has accelerated the Great Reset. The response to the covid-19 scourge has consolidated the grip on the economy of monopolistic corporations above, while advancing “actually-existing socialism” below. In partnership with Big Tech, Big Pharma, the legacy media, national and international health agencies, and compliant populations, hitherto “democratic” Western states are being transformed into totalitarian regimes modeled after China, seemingly overnight. I need not provide a litany of the tyranny and abuses. You can read about them on alternative news sites—until you can no longer read about them.[55]

The Great Reset, then, is not a conspiracy theory; it is an open, avowed, and planned project, and it is well underway. But because capitalism with Chinese characteristics or corporate-socialist statism lacks free markets and depends on the absence of free will and individual liberty, it is, ironically, “unsustainable.” The vast majority will not accept the Great Reset’s attempts to lock them away in an economic, governmental, and technological prison. Like earlier attempts at totalitarianism, the Great Reset is doomed to fail.

  2. One of the most immediate issues of the Great Reset in 2020 was replacing Trump with Biden. Trump, a patriot would never allow the dissolution of the United States to become part of a global government. Biden however was known to favor the Great Reset agenda.
    See: John Kerry reveals Biden’s devotion to radical ‘Great Reset’ movement
    https://thehill.com/opinion/energy-environment/528482-john-kerry-reveals-bidens-devotion-to-radical-great-reset-movement?rl=1

    Watch the video below to see it all.

    The liars in the mainstream press would have us believe that there is no evidence whatever that people who wanted Joe Biden to win, stole the 2020 election in some key states. The “no evidence” mantra began the moment it was apparent that Pennsylvania violated its own state law to count late ballots.

    In fact, there is plenty of circumstantial evidence that the flood of absentee ballots, counting mistakes, and downright ballot box stuffing contributed to Biden’s mystifying win.

    Then there are other baffling statistical anomalies as pointed out in the video below. Pat displayed a chart comparing the election performance of Obama, Trump, and Biden. The chart is a real head-scratcher showing that Trump matched or exceeded both Obama and Biden in everything but popular votes. Where did all those extra votes come from?

    In this case, the statistics may have perverted the truth. The truth is that both the press and the political establishment could not handle the truth. The press hated Donald Trump with the white-hot heat of a thousand suns, and the political establishment was too invested in the process to show how inefficient absentee voting is.

    This Build Back Better Act is the main reason why the Globalists ensured that the 2020 Election was stolen. It was to enable the Final Looting of the United States of America.

      1. Another Globalist “Simulation” Comes True
        Corbett Report
        Nov 7, 2021, 9:15:33 PM

        You know how Event 201 was just the most high profile in a string of “simulations” and “scenarios” (including Clade X, Crimson Contagion, Lock Step and SPARS) that just happened to predictively program the fear of a global coronavirus pandemic into the minds of the global political and managerial class?

        And you know how those “exercises” (like the multiple war games that just happened to coincide with the catastrophic, catalyzing events of 9/11) not only anticipated our current predicament, but, more importantly, laid the groundwork for the current global governmental response to the scamdemic—the creation of vaccine passports, the erection of the biosecurity grid, the crackdown on the “infodemic” of online “disinformation,” etc.?

        Now, what if I were to tell you that there have been a number of simulations that have taken place in recent years that have similarly spelled out the globalists’ game plan for the post-scamdemic world in black-and-white?

        Well, brace yourself. The global planners have been crafting simulations, war games and exercises to simulate our responses to the crises they are intending to create in the coming decade. And, as serious as all of the above-named simulations were, these ones foretell of an even darker vision for humanity in the years to come. . . .

        The Players Set the Stage

        In November of 2015—as you can learn from an official press release on the Cargill website—”65 international policymakers, academics, business and thought leaders gathered at the World Wildlife Fund’s headquarters in Washington DC to game out how the world would respond to a future food crisis.” Over the course of two days, the participants in this “Food Chain Reaction” crisis simulation role played a response to a number of converging and overlapping crises in the 2020s, including “two major food crises, with prices approaching 400 percent of the long term average; a raft of climate-related extreme weather events; governments toppling in Pakistan and Ukraine; and famine and refugee crises in Bangladesh, Myanmar, Chad and Sudan.”

        Among the expected corporate platitudes and blather about “staying ahead of the curve” in order to “get it right,” the World Wildlife Fund highlights the key takeaway from this exercise: “Only by stopping agricultural expansion, augmenting agricultural production, increasing resource-use efficiency, and reducing food waste, can we provide the food and nourishment we need, while ensuring we are conserving nature for future generations.”

        I’ll let you stew on the implications of that statement on your own time, but the game—which, we are assured, “was built over the course of months, with maximal realism in mind”—went on to envision some very specific scenarios that look like they are on track to becoming stone cold reality, like “a steep price spike with looming global food shortages in 2022” that prompted the EU players to impose a tax on meat. But here’s the kicker: this “game” ended with the imposition of a global carbon tax.

        Oh yes, the global controllers can’t go three minutes without invoking their favourite bogeyman, the Climate Scare, to impose greater control over humanity, and this “war game” only proved that rule. In this case John “Pizzagate” Podesta, as one of the “Key Players and Game Control Staff” steering the exercise, helped guide the gaggle of globalist gophers—including representatives from multilateral institutions like the World Bank, the International Finance Corporation and the United Nations Environment Program, as well as industry executives from companies like Louis Dreyfus Commodities, MARS, Inc. and Thomson Reuters—toward the pre-ordained conclusion that the only way to placate the weather gods would be to institute a global tax.
        […….]
        As I write, soaring natural gas prices are resulting in a nitrogen fertilizer shortage, which in turn is helping to fuel food price inflation. This has led Russia to impose nitrogen fertilizer export quotas, exacerbating problems in the agricultural sector, which is already reeling from China’s September decision to halt all exports of phosphate, another key ingredient of commercial fertilizers. The pinch is already being felt by farmers around the world, with the Brazilian Agriculture and Land Reform Commission taking up the issue as a major food security threat and the Indian Air Force helping to secure fertilizer shipments to Sri Lanka.

        But that’s not all. The stories of woe are coming from farmers all across the globe as the world plunges into an unprecedented series of food crises.
        Exactly on schedule (and exactly as the Food Chain Reaction game envisioned), farmers are now being asked to start cutting carbon emissions to meet the globalists’ “net zero” (or is that “absolute zero”?) goals for the 2030 Agenda. The extra financial burden on the agricultural sector that comes with implementing these (meaningless) measures couldn’t come at a worse time for a sector already in full-blown crisis . . . unless the global controllers are looking to exacerbate that crisis, of course.

        There is no doubt that a global food crisis is upon us. People are already starting to feel the pinch of that crisis at the checkout as food price inflation kicks in, but if things continue along this path it’s going to get a whole lot worse. So what can be done about this?

        >>Not much if you live in an apartment in an iffy situation that is insecure…<<

    1. Reasonable Substantial Evidence of Racketeering and Collusion

      Contents
      Synopsis – Page 1
      Part 1- The Vanguard Group – Page 2
      Part 2 – The World Economic Forum – Page 4
      Part 3 – The Vanguard Group and Government connections – Page 6
      Part 4 – Is Justin Trudeau a Vanguard Group Owner/Client? – Page 7
      Final Statements – Page 10
      Post Document Supplemental – Page 11

      So, who owns The Vanguard Group?
      That’s a great question. The Vanguard Group has created a unique situation. All of their clients are sold partial
      ownership in the company. This means that, even though The Vanguard Group is a public company, their
      shareholders are protected by client confidentiality. They boast roughly 25 million clients (under 1 million
      dollars) and approx. 60,000 ‘flagship’ ($1-5 million) and ‘flagship select’ (over $5 million) clients’ worldwide. I
      do do not know the specific breakdowns of flagship clients. https://www.inquirer.com/philly/blogs/inqphillydeals/Vanguard-plans-new-offices-for-upscale-clients.html

      PART 2 – THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM
      I believe I cannot connect the bridge between The Vanguard Group and Global governments/ individuals
      without discussing the World Economic Forum. Just as The Vanguard Group is underestimated, I believe that
      the World Economic Forum is OVERestimated. Most people believe the WEF is pulling the strings. If you see
      the WEF not as the shot callers but as nothing more than a marketing/propaganda department for The Vanguard
      Group then more pieces of the puzzle fall into place. The WEF partners list now reads more like a Vanguard
      Group holdings statement. From here on in we will begin to focus more on Canadian operatives.

        An orchestrated fake “COVID pandemic” was used to destroy health, civil liberty and the doctor/patient relationship

        Dear Readers, give the extraordinary coercive Covid vaccination program a moment of thought. What explains the emphasis, even the use of tyrannical methods in free societies, to force vaccination on populations when even Big Pharma and the corrupt medical establishment only claim a short-run and steeply declining protection from the vaccine? According to the medical establishment itself, double-vaxxed is no longer protection. Booster shots are needed every six months for the rest of your life.

        This is especially puzzling when we consider the known facts that (1) The mortality of Covid is very low. It kills mainly those with co-morbidities and those who are untreated or wrongly treated. (2) The vaccine reduces our natural immunity. (3) The vaccine causes a large number of adverse reactions including deaths and lifelong disabilities. The CDC and WHO admit that the adverse reactions reporting system vastly underreports deaths and adverse reactions from the vaccine. No vaccine or medicine ever before in history has been kept in use that produced even a tiny fraction of the reported deaths and injuries. (4) The vaccine causes variants that are immune to the vaccine and to the weakened immune system of the vaccinated. New vaccines are needed to deal with the new variants, producing still more new variants. (5) The medical establishment has blocked to the extent of its ability the treatment of Covid with two known, safe, effective, and inexpensive medicines–Ivermectin and HCQ. Doctors who have saved lives with these medicines have been fired for using them. (6) Distinguished and renowned scientific and medical experts, including Nobel laureates, have been censored and deplatformed for warning about the dangerous vaccine and advocating effective treatment instead. (7) The media speaks with one lying voice that vaccination is our only hope. (8) Evidence from a number of countries (I have reported it) demonstrates that Covid cases and deaths rise with vaccination and that the majority of cases and deaths for most age groups are the vaccinated. (9) The science is clear that the vaccinated spread the virus as easily, or more so, than the unvaccinated. (10) Indeed, the evidence is clear that the unvaccinated relying on natural immunity are better protected than the vaccinated.

        With these known, established scientific facts, what is the justification for mass vaccination? Why the emphasis on vaccinating children when it is known that the spike protein attacks ovaries and testes unless the plan is to reduce fertility? Why can ignorant talking heads on TV who can barely spell their own name feel secure attacking renowned scientists who are telling us the truth?

        There are certainly many sound reasons to conclude that the “Covid pandemic” is an orchestrated plot.

  3. A SHITTY PRESIDENT, A SHITTY ECONOMY A SHITTY AUTHORITARIAN VACCINE MANDATE
    = DYSPOPIA 2021

    The Federal Reserve’s second-in-command, Vice Chair Richard Clarida, said on Nov. 8 that inflation this year has been far higher than the Fed expected, and while he still believes inflationary pressures are transitory and will dissipate “over time,” a longer run of elevated prices would amount to a policy failure on the part of the central bank.

    Clarida made the remarks in a speech at a virtual symposium on monetary policy frameworks hosted by Washington-based Brookings Institution.

    1. “The Great Reset from China’s Perspective” | David P. Goldman | Asia Times

      In 2020, members of the world’s elite met at the World Economic Forum and launched the Great Reset initiative to transform the world economy. Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive director of the Forum, wrote, “Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.” This second CCA of the 2021-2022 academic year will consider the idea of the Great Reset, its ramifications for America, and pro-freedom alternatives.

  4. COP-26 Overview: Nation States say “Nyet” at Glasgow, while British Imperialists demand Mass Murder
    November 08, 2021 · Robert Ingraham

    Establishment media outlets are now rife with reports that the COP-26 conference has failed, that nations are refusing to do what is necessary to “save the planet.” It would seem that these media underlings have now all joined Greta Thunberg’s lunatic chorus.

    Partially, and in important ways, these cackling’s from the British establishment are accurate. We will enumerate some examples of sovereign resistance to the “climate change agenda” in the paragraphs immediately below. At the same time, however, it is critical to recognize that the widespread wailings about the “failure of COP-26” are also deliberate propaganda, intended to justify new intensified measures to force nations into submission. The House of Windsor and its allies are determined to escalate their drive to eliminate national sovereignty and to kill hundreds of millions. They shout, “nations are resisting,” and then they demand “We must force them to comply.” Evil never sleeps.

    COP-26 is not some far-off event in distant Scotland that America citizens are safe to ignore. The decisions being made there are aimed at you and your family. Already we are witnessing electricity blackouts all over the world: in China, in Lebanon, in various member states of the European Union, as well as in the United States, particularly in Texas and California. But what we have experienced so far is just the harbinger of what is to come. There are now predictions, coming from many U.S. and international agencies, of expected widespread blackouts and energy disruptions this winter, accompanied by a huge increase in prices on everything from electrical rates to the cost of home heating oil and gasoline. Many poorer nations will face mass death as this scenario unfolds.

    What Americans must begin to realize is that the COP-26 “climate” agenda is a deadly threat to our nation, as well as to nations all over the world. The Biden administration is attempting to enslave the United States to this agenda, seeking to claim a leadership mantle for leading the world’s human beings, like so many lemmings, over a cliff. True to the reality that catastrophic climate change is a myth, designed to eliminate whole populations and establish a world government for the oligarchy, Biden arrived at the summit in a 21-car caravan of alleged gas spewers and promptly publicly fell asleep as those he reports to took control. It is up to us to reverse this.

    The United States is the key battleground. As Lyndon LaRouche always insisted, this imperial threat cannot be defeated except by an alliance of forces led by America. Any proposal that some chimerical coalition of nations, sans the United States, can defeat the British Empire is a delusion, and those pushing it are de-facto agents of the British Empire. It is not only the economic power of America, but the principles announced in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution which provide the basis for defeating the oligarchy’s goal of imposing green genocide on humanity.

    The Resistance at Glasgow
    Neither Xi Jinping of China nor Vladimir Putin of Russia attended COP-26. Other no-shows included Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro and Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

    Putin sent an almost insultingly short, recorded video presentation, 223 words long, speaking almost entirely about Russia’s plans for planting more trees. He made no commitments at all as to reducing carbon emissions or coal usage and no specific pledges.

    President Xi not only didn’t attend, but he also didn’t even present a video message. Only a short-written message from Xi was read. Although Xi still publicly professes his commitment to the Paris Climate Accords, his written message made no specific promises as to carbon reduction, coal usage or anything else. China, having suffered repeat power outages, has announced that it will build a large number of new coal-fired power plants.

    China, along with Russia and India, all refused to sign the “Global Methane Pledge,” a commitment to reduce methane emissions by 30 percent. A forced reduction of methane production will devastate oil and gas production as well as livestock and rice production, causing a genocidal impact world-wide.

    Much hyper-ventilated hoopla accompanied the announcement by President Modi that India would agree to a net-zero emissions target by 2070. Modi also pledged to reduce India’s green-house emissions by one billion tons by 2030, but the problem is that there exists no viable way for India to meet that goal. India is one of the most coal dependent nations in the world. Its total emissions of greenhouse gases were 3.3 billion tons in 2018. No one has suggested what energy source can replace coal and not only sustain but develop India’s population.

    Although there are more than 150 nations in attendance, the agreements being signed, are only being signed by 20 or 30 nations. Unanimity is nowhere to be found. One example of this is the pledge to end financing for overseas fossil fuel projects. Only twenty nations signed it, with both China and Japan strongly objecting. The victims of this, of course, will be the entire underdeveloped sector as the twenty signatories can continue developing their own fossil fuel resources at home, including oil and gas fields.

    Perhaps the most egregious kick-in-the-teeth to Prince Charles was delivered by Australia. Even as COP-26 is occurring, the Australian government announced that it has drawn up plans to build 116 new fossil fuel projects, which if built, would result in a nearly 30 percent increase in emissions within Australia.

    Nations everywhere are evading, fudging, and ignoring the commitments made at Paris in 2015. The unenforceable “pledges” being made at Glasgow, by India and others, are about as real as Willy Wonka’s promises to redeem the Golden Tickets hidden in his Wonka Bars. Everyone worships at the altar of keeping global warming to 1.5 degrees centigrade, and then they leave the church to continue sinning for the simple reason that such sinning represents their nation’s ability to survive.

    And, as all of this is occurring, new figures have been issued that as the Covid epidemic eases, global CO2 emissions are now shooting to record levels, even higher than 2014. A hysterical UN Report states that “The data shows world leaders have failed to build back greener.” They rant that China’s emissions will rise 4 percent in 2021, while India will see an increase of 12.6 percent (!) in 2021. The UN “scientists” predict that 2022 could set a record for global emissions.

    Lyndon LaRouche Defines the Actual Battle
    The first thing that needs to be understood about COP-26 and the drive for a carbon-free economy is that none of this has anything to do with “climate change” or “global warming.” What we are witnessing is an oligarchical drive to impose Empire and an imperial financial system on the entire world, and it is now long past time for timid patriots to finally admit that everything Lyndon LaRouche spoke about, regarding the modern-day British Financial Empire, has been 100 percent accurate.

    In a 2005 article, titled “Globalization, The New Imperialism,” Lyndon LaRouche defined this oligarchical intention thus:

    The long-ranging drive of the Anglo-Dutch Liberal financier-oligarchical establishment, over the post-Franklin Roosevelt period of world history, has been to destroy the institution of the sovereign nation-state republic throughout the planet, an intention which has been turned loose, full force, with the collapse of the Soviet system. The name given to this global destruction of sovereignty of nations, including that of the U.S.A. itself, is “globalization” …

    The stated intent of the British imperial system, the Anglo-Dutch Liberal system, as by Lord Shelburne, et al., since the beginning of that faction’s rule in the Netherlands and Britain, has been to establish a permanent world empire as successor to the Roman Empire, an empire modeled upon the ultramontane system under which medieval Europe was dominated by the partnership of the Venetian financier oligarchy with the Norman chivalry of Crusades’ notoriety…

    The end of history would be the establishment of that permanent world-empire, called “globalization” today. The “end of history,” because it was determined that there would be nothing to come after the establishment of the Anglo-Dutch Liberal system’s version of a new, truly world-wide, and eternal Roman Empire, as Shelburne’s Gibbon had intended.

    LaRouche also repeatedly named India, Russia, China, and the United States as the indispensable potential partners in putting an end to this “globalist” paradigm and negotiating a new Bretton Woods agreement, grounded in sovereign economic policy and capital intensive scientific and technological advancement. It is no accident that the organizers of COP-26 repeatedly name these same four nations as the primary obstacles to their utopian scheme for a “carbon free” global regime of human misery and death.

    The COP-26 agenda, like the earlier 2015 Paris Climate Accords, as well as the “Great Reset” version of fascism promoted by the World Economic Forum, all have as their primary goal, the surrender by nations of sovereignty over their own economic affairs, the prohibition of advanced economic development (e.g., nuclear power, industry and modern agriculture), population reduction, and the growing dictatorial hegemony of an imperial financial and corporate power. This is the permanent world empire, a 21st century version of the British Empire, of which LaRouche speaks.

    Green Finance in Trouble?
    Oligarchical spokesmen in the financial community, led by former Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney and current Chairman and CEO of BlackRock Inc., Larry Fink, have spearheaded the drive by the financial oligarchy to use the private banking sector to stop all global economic development. In 2020, Carney launched the Task Force on Scaling Voluntary Carbon Markets, and this year he founded the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ), with the intention to recruit all the Central Banks and most of the large private banks and financial institutions into enforcing a cut-off of loans and credit into any company or project that “increases emissions.”

    At Glasgow, there was a lot of tough talk and self-congratulations coming from Carney and his friends, and on November 2nd Carney and Michael Bloomberg co-authored an article, published on the Bloomberg website, titled “To Fight Climate Change, Put Markets to Work.” In the article they state that “financing the global transition to clean energy” is the key battle to be won. They say they have lined up “450 major financial institutions across 45 countries, controlling assets of more than $130 trillion, who have joined the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero.” They also state that the net-zero framework adopted by The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) “has been endorsed by more than 2,700 businesses, financial institutions, non-governmental organizations and governments in 90 countries.”

    But, despite the massive woke pressure on banks and businesses to conform, they too are still balking and stalling.

    A report from Europe now states that the Bank of England itself, as well as the Banque de France and the European Central Bank, while conducting “climate stress tests” and issuing advice and guidelines on green investment, have so far refused to impose any restrictions or deterrents on banks who are funding carbon or methane emitting firms. As to 450 institutions with assets of $130 trillion who have joined the GFANZ, pro-green critics have pointed out that they are subject to no enforcement of any kind and are still free to pour cash into fossil fuels and related projects, which they have continued to do.

    The Battle to Come
    Nothing in the above sections should lead one to think that the COP-26 has failed, nor that the diktats of the Paris Climate Accords have been overthrown. What events of the last week demonstrate is that there is growing resistance to the climate agenda. Nations are having trouble keeping the lights on. People are going hungry and suffering, and many governments recognize the catastrophe that looms in the weeks and months ahead if Prince Charles’ utopian schemes were to become reality.

    But let us be clear. Resistance is not good enough. Slowing the enemy’s advance is not synonymous with defeating the enemy. The cancer of “climate change” insanity must be cut out, and the diseased tumor destroyed. Nations must openly break with the imperial agenda of the House of Windsor and its allies within the European oligarchy.

    Have no doubt; the imperial party, the proponents of a permanent world empire, are not about to throw in the towel and free the human race to a happy and productive future, simply because some governments are resisting. They will fight ruthlessly to the end. They will use every weapon in their arsenal to put the screws on governments, banks, and businesses to submit.

    It is also clear that Mark Carney and his ilk will escalate efforts to rein in financial institutions, to enforce a top-down oligarchical global financial system. Indicative of this intention is the speech given by U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on November 3rd, wherein she enunciated a whole slew of Biden Administration initiatives to corral financial markets into a plethora of green boondoggles.

    In 2017 President Donald Trump announced U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accords. Two years later, on Sept 24, 2019, Trump delivered an historic speech at the United Nations, passionately defending the principle of National Sovereignty. Trump’s enunciated vision was recognized as a mortal danger by the British throne, and it defines precisely the optimistic future which all sovereign nations must act on.

    America is the battlefield where this war must be won. The Biden/Harris clique is hanging on only by a thread. Now is the time to defeat it, not to compromise with it. To succeed in this it is critical to understand the nature of the battle and who the enemy is.

      1. THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF LIBERTY

        Conceived in Liberty is a cultural, sociological and geopolitical review of the uniquely American notion that the country and its people are “exceptional.” While all nations have their own patriotic commitments, no other people have outwardly declared their power as vigorously as have Americans, especially since World War II.

        John J. Tierney, Jr. advances the idea that liberty is the singular source of the power of the American worldview and all other elements of this society―equality, patience, charity, justice, etc.―are derived from liberty. He argues that this worldview comes from this one source and is responsible for the many movements that may engage the public’s interest, such as women’s rights, civil rights, and voting rights. Such movements are all positive, but they could not exist in a society devoid of liberty.

        Conceived in Liberty also traces other main components of the American worldview: geographic expanse, immigration, energy of the populace, diversity, public policies, and the elements that contribute to exceptionalism. Tierney is not blind to some of the deficiencies of the United States, but he posits that the liberty it manifests is truly the political globe’s last, best hope.
