Klaus Schwab & His Great Fascist Reset

Winter Oak

Born in Ravensburg in 1938, Klaus Schwab is a child of Adolf Hitler’s Germany, a police-state regime built on fear and violence, on brainwashing and control, on propaganda and lies, on industrialism and eugenics, on dehumanisation and “disinfection”, on a chilling and grandiose vision of a “new order” that would last a thousand years.

Schwab seems to have dedicated his life to reinventing that nightmare and to trying to turn it into a reality not just for Germany but for the whole world.

Worse still, as his own words confirm time and time again, his technocratic fascist vision is also a twisted transhumanist one, which will merge humans with machines in “curious mixes of digital-and-analog life”, which will infect our bodies with “Smart Dust” and in which the police will apparently be able to read our brains.

And, as we will see, he and his accomplices are using the Covid-19 crisis to bypass democratic accountability, to override opposition, to accelerate their agenda and to impose it on the rest of humankind against our will in what he terms a “Great Reset“.

Schwab is not, of course, a Nazi in the classic sense, being neither a nationalist nor an anti-semite, as testified by the $1 million Dan David Prize he was awarded by Israel in 2004.

But 21st century fascism has found different political forms through which to continue its core project of reshaping humanity to suit capitalism through blatantly authoritarian means.

This new fascism is today being advanced in the guise of global governance, biosecurity, the “New Normal”, the “New Deal for Nature” and the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”.

Schwab, the octogenarian founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, sits at the centre of this matrix like a spider on a giant web.

The original fascist project, in Italy and Germany, was all about a merger of state and business.

While communism envisages the take-over of business and industry by the government, which – theoretically! – acts in the interests of the people, fascism was all about using the state to protect and advance the interests of the wealthy elite.

Schwab was continuing this approach in a denazified post-WW2 context, when in 1971 he founded the European Management Forum, which held annual meetings at Davos in Switzerland.

Here he promoted his ideology of “stakeholder” capitalism in which businesses were brought into closer co-operation with government.

“Stakeholder capitalism” is described by Forbes business magazine as:

the notion that a firm focuses on meeting the needs of all its stakeholders: customers, employees, partners, the community, and society as a whole.”

Even in the context of a particular business, it is invariably an empty label. As the Forbes article notes, it actually only means that “firms can go on privately shoveling money to their shareholders and executives, while maintaining a public front of exquisite social sensitivity and exemplary altruism”.

But in a general social context, the stakeholder concept is even more nefarious, discarding any idea of democracy, rule by the people, in favour of rule by corporate interests.

Society is no longer regarded as a living community but as a business, whose profitability is the sole valid aim of human activity.

Schwab set out this agenda back in 1971, in his book Moderne Unternehmensführung im Maschinenbau (Modern Enterprise Management in Mechanical Engineering), where his use of the term “stakeholders” (die Interessenten) effectively redefined human beings not as citizens, free individuals or members of communities, but as secondary participants in a massive commercial enterprise.

The aim of each and every person’s life was “to achieve long-term growth and prosperity” for this enterprise – in other words, to protect and increase the wealth of the capitalist elite.

This all became even clearer in 1987, when Schwab renamed his European Management Forum the World Economic Forum.

The WEF describes itself on its own website as “the global platform for public-private cooperation”, with admirers describing how it creates “partnerships between businessmen, politicians, intellectuals and other leaders of society to ‘define, discuss and advance key issues on the global agenda’.”

The “partnerships” which the WEF creates are aimed at replacing democracy with a global leadership of hand-picked and unelected individuals whose duty is not to serve the public, but to impose the rule of the 1% on that public with as little interference from the rest of us as possible.

In the books Schwab writes for public consumption, he expresses himself in the two-faced clichés of corporate spin and greenwashing.

The same empty terms are dished up time and time again. In Shaping the Future of the Fourth Industrial Revolution: A Guide to Building a Better World Schwab talks of “the inclusion of stakeholders and the distribution of benefits” and of “sustainable and inclusive partnerships” which will lead us all to an “inclusive, sustainable and prosperous future”! [1]

Behind this bluster, the real motivation behind his “stakeholder capitalism”, which he was still relentlessly promoting at the WEF’s 2020 Davos conference, is profit and exploitation.

For instance, in his 2016 book The Fourth Industrial Revolution, Schwab writes about the Uberisation of work and the consequent advantages for companies, particularly fast-growing start-ups in the digital economy:

As human cloud platforms classify workers as self-employed, they are—for the moment—free of the requirement to pay minimum wages, employer taxes and social benefits”. [2]

The same capitalist callousness shines through in his attitude towards people nearing the end of their working lives and in need of a well-deserved rest:

Aging is an economic challenge because unless retirement ages are drastically increased so that older members of society can continue to contribute to the workforce (an economic imperative that has many economic benefits), the working-age population falls at the same time as the percentage of dependent elders increases”.[2]

Everything in this world is reduced to economic challenges, economic imperatives and economic benefits for the ruling capitalist class.

The myth of Progress has long been used by the 1% to persuade people to accept the technologies designed to exploit and control us and Schwab plays on this when he declares that “the Fourth Industrial Revolution represents a significant source of hope for continuing the climb in human development that has resulted in dramatic increases in quality of life for billions of people since 1800”.[2]

He enthuses:

While it may not feel momentous to those of us experiencing a series of small but significant adjustments to life on a daily basis, it is not a minor change—the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a new chapter in human development, on a par with the first, second and third Industrial Revolutions, and once again driven by the increasing availability and interaction of a set of extraordinary technologies.[1]

But he is well aware that technology is not ideologically neutral, as some like to claim. Technologies and societies shape each other, he says.

After all, technologies are tied up in how we know things, how we make decisions, and how we think about ourselves and each other. They are connected to our identities, worldviews and potential futures. From nuclear technologies to the space race, smartphones, social media, cars, medicine and infrastructure—the meaning of technologies makes them political. Even the concept of a ‘developed’ nation implicitly rests on the adoption of technologies and what they mean for us, economically and socially.[1]

Technology, for the capitalists behind it, has never been about social good but purely about profit, and Schwab makes it quite clear that the same remains true of his Fourth Industrial Revolution.

He enthuses:

Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies are truly disruptive—they upend existing ways of sensing, calculating, organizing, acting and delivering. They represent entirely new ways of creating value for organizations and citizens”.[1]

In case the meaning of “creating value” was not clear, he gives some examples: “Drones represent a new type of cost-cutting employee working among us and performing jobs that once involved real people”[1] and “the use of ever-smarter algorithms is rapidly extending employee productivity—for example, in the use of chat bots to augment (and, increasingly, replace) ‘live chat’ support for customer interactions”.[1]

Schwab goes into some detail about the cost-cutting, profit-boosting marvels of his brave new world in The Fourth Industrial Revolution.

He explains:

Sooner than most anticipate, the work of professions as different as lawyers, financial analysts, doctors, journalists, accountants, insurance underwriters or librarians may be partly or completely automated…
[…]
The technology is progressing so fast that Kristian Hammond, cofounder of Narrative Science, a company specializing in automated narrative generation, forecasts that by the mid-2020s, 90% of news could be generated by an algorithm, most of it without any kind of human intervention (apart from the design of the algorithm, of course).[2]

It is this economic imperative that informs Schwab’s enthusiasm for “a revolution that is fundamentally changing the way we live, work, and relate to one another”.[2]

Schwab waxes lyrical about the 4IR, which he insists is “unlike anything humankind has experienced before”.[2]

He gushes:

Consider the unlimited possibilities of having billions of people connected by mobile devices, giving rise to unprecedented processing power, storage capabilities and knowledge access. Or think about the staggering confluence of emerging technology breakthroughs, covering wide-ranging fields such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, the internet of things (IoT), autonomous vehicles, 3D printing, nanotechnology, biotechnology, materials science, energy storage and quantum computing, to name a few. Many of these innovations are in their infancy, but they are already reaching an inflection point in their development as they build on and amplify each other in a fusion of technologies across the physical, digital and biological worlds.[2]

He also looks forward to more online education, involving “the use of virtual and augmented reality” to “dramatically improve educational outcomes” [1], to sensors “installed in homes, clothes and accessories, cities, transport and energy networks” [2] and to smart cities, with their all-important “data platforms”.[2]

“All things will be smart and connected to the internet”, says Schwab, and this will extend to animals, as “sensors wired in cattle can communicate to each other through a mobile phone network”.[2]

He loves the idea of “smart cell factories” which could enable “the accelerated generation of vaccines” [1] and “big-data technologies”.[2]

These, he ensures us, will “deliver new and innovative ways to service citizens and customers”[2] and we will have to stop objecting to businesses profiting from harnessing and selling information about every aspect of our personal lives.

“Establishing trust in the data and algorithms used to make decisions will be vital,” insists Schwab. “Citizen concerns over privacy and establishing accountability in business and legal structures will require adjustments in thinking”.[2]

At the end of the day it is clear that all this technological excitement revolves purely around profit, or “value” as Schwab prefers to term it in his 21st century corporate newspeak.

Thus blockchain technology will be fantastic and provoke “an explosion in tradable assets, as all kinds of value exchange can be hosted on the blockchain”.[2]

The use of distributed ledger technology, adds Schwab, “could be the driving force behind massive flows of value in digital products and services, providing secure digital identities that can make new markets accessible to anyone connected to the internet”. [1]

In general, the interest of the 4IR for the ruling business elite is that it will “create entirely new sources of value” [1] and “give rise to ecosystems of value creation that are impossible to imagine with a mindset stuck in the third Industrial Revolution”. [1]

The technologies of the 4IR, rolled out via 5G, pose unprecedented threats to our freedom, as Schwab concedes:

The tools of the fourth industrial revolution enable new forms of surveillance and other means of control that run counter to healthy, open societies.”[2]

But this does not stop him presenting them in a positive light, as when he declares that “public crime is likely to decrease due to the convergence of sensors, cameras, AI and facial recognition software”. [1]

He describes with some relish how these technologies “can intrude into the hitherto private space of our minds, reading our thoughts and influencing our behavior”. [1]

Schwab predicts:

As capabilities in this area improve, the temptation for law enforcement agencies and courts to use techniques to determine the likelihood of criminal activity, assess guilt or even possibly retrieve memories directly from people’s brains will increase. Even crossing a national border might one day involve a detailed brain scan to assess an individual’s security risk”. [1]

There are times when the WEF chief gets carried away by his passion for a sci-fi future in which “long-distance human space travel and nuclear fusion are commonplace”[1] and in which “the next trending business model” might involve someone “trading access to his or her thoughts for the time-saving option of typing a social media post by thought alone”.[1]

Talk of “space tourism” under the title “The Fourth Industrial Revolution and the final frontier” [1] is almost funny, as is his suggestion that “a world full of drones offers a world full of possibilities”.[1]

But the further the reader progresses into the world depicted in Schwab’s books, the less of a laughing matter it all seems.

The truth is that this highly influential figure, at the centre of the new global order currently being established, is an out-and-out transhumanist who dreams of an end to natural healthy human life and community.

Schwab repeats this message time and time again, as if to be sure we have been duly warned.

The mind-boggling innovations triggered by the fourth industrial revolution, from biotechnology to AI, are redefining what it means to be human,” [2]

The future will challenge our understanding of what it means to be human, from both a biological and a social standpoint”.[1]

Already, advances in neurotechnologies and biotechnologies are forcing us to question what it means to be human”.[1]

He spells it out in more detail in Shaping the Future of the Fourth Industrial Revolution[1]:

Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies will not stop at becoming part of the physical world around us—they will become part of us. Indeed, some of us already feel that our smartphones have become an extension of ourselves. Today’s external devices—from wearable computers to virtual reality headsets—will almost certainly become implantable in our bodies and brains. Exoskeletons and prosthetics will increase our physical power, while advances in neurotechnology enhance our cognitive abilities.

We will become better able to manipulate our own genes, and those of our children. These developments raise profound questions: Where do we draw the line between human and machine? What does it mean to be human?

A whole section of this book is devoted to the theme “Altering the Human Being”. Here he drools over “the ability of new technologies to literally become part of us” and invokes a cyborg future involving “curious mixes of digital-and-analog life that will redefine our very natures”. [1]

He writes:

These technologies will operate within our own biology and change how we interface with the world. They are capable of crossing the boundaries of body and mind, enhancing our physical abilities, and even having a lasting impact on life itself.”[1]

No violation seems to go too far for Schwab, who dreams of “active implantable microchips that break the skin barrier of our bodies”, “smart tattoos”, “biological computing” and “custom-designed organisms”.[1]

He is delighted to report that “sensors, memory switches and circuits can be encoded in common human gut bacteria”,[1] that “Smart Dust, arrays of full computers with antennas, each much smaller than a grain of sand, can now organize themselves inside the body” and that “implanted devices will likely also help to communicate thoughts normally expressed verbally through a ‘built-in’ smartphone, and potentially unexpressed thoughts or moods by reading brain waves and other signals”.[1]

“Synthetic biology” is on the horizon in Schwab’s 4IR world, giving the technocratic capitalist rulers of the world “the ability to customize organisms by writing DNA”.[2]

The idea of neurotechnologies, in which humans will have fully artificial memories implanted in the brain, is enough to make some of us feel faintly sick, as is “the prospect of connecting our brains to VR through cortical modems, implants or nanobots”.[1]

It is of little comfort to learn that this is all – of course! – in the greater interests of capitalist profiteering since it “heralds new industries and systems for value creation” and “represents an opportunity to create entire new systems of value in the Fourth Industrial Revolution”.[1]

And what about “the bioprinting of organic tissues” [1] or the suggestion that “animals could potentially be engineered to produce pharmaceuticals and other forms of treatment”? [2]

Ethical objections, anyone?

It’s all evidently good for Schwab, who is happy to announce:

The day when cows are engineered to produce in its [sic] milk a blood-clotting element, which hemophiliacs lack, is not far off. Researchers have already started to engineer the genomes of pigs with the goal of growing organs suitable for human transplantation”.[2]

It gets even more disturbing. Ever since the sinister eugenics programme of the Nazi Germany into which Schwab was born, this science has been deemed beyond the pale by human society.

But now, however, he evidently feels eugenics is due a revival, announcing with regard to genetic editing:

That it is now far easier to manipulate with precision the human genome within viable embryos means that we are likely to see the advent of designer babies in the future who possess particular traits or who are resistant to a specific disease.”[2]

In the notorious 2002 transhumanist treatise I, Cyborg, Kevin Warwick predicts:

Humans will be able to evolve by harnessing the super-intelligence and extra abilities offered by the machines of the future, by joining with them. All this points to the development of a new human species, known in the science-fiction world as ‘cyborgs’. It doesn’t mean that everyone has to become a cyborg. If you are happy with your state as a human then so be it, you can remain as you are. But be warned – just as we humans split from our chimpanzee cousins years ago, so cyborgs will split from humans. Those who remain as humans are likely to become a sub-species. They will, effectively, be the chimpanzees of the future. [3]

Schwab seems to be hinting at the same future of a “superior” enhanced artificial transhuman elite separating from the natural-born rabble, in this particularly damning passage from 4IR:

We are at the threshold of a radical systemic change that requires human beings to adapt continuously. As a result, we may witness an increasing degree of polarization in the world, marked by those who embrace change versus those who resist it.

This gives rise to an inequality that goes beyond the societal one described earlier. This ontological inequality will separate those who adapt from those who resist—the material winners and losers in all senses of the words.

The winners may even benefit from some form of radical human improvement generated by certain segments of the fourth industrial revolution (such as genetic engineering) from which the losers will be deprived. This risks creating class conflicts and other clashes unlike anything we have seen before.[2]

Schwab was already talking about a “great transformation” back in 2016[2] and is clearly determined to do everything in his not inconsiderable power to bring about his eugenics-inspired transhumanist world of artifice, surveillance, control and exponential profit.

But, as revealed by his reference above to “class conflicts”, he is clearly worried by the possibility of “societal resistance”[1] and how to advance “if technologies receive a great deal of resistance from the public”.[1]

Schwab’s annual WEF shindigs at Davos have long been met by anti-capitalist protests and, despite the current paralysis of the radical left, he is well aware of the possibility of renewed and perhaps broader opposition to his project, with the risk of “resentment, fear and political backlash”.[1]

In his most recent book he provides a historical context, noting that “antiglobalization was strong in the run-up to 1914 and up to 1918, then less so during the 1920s, but it reignited in the 1930s as a result of the Great Depression”. [4]

He notes that in the early 2000s “the political and societal backlash against globalization relentlessly gained strength”,[4] says that “social unrest” has been widespread across the world in the past two years, citing the Gilets Jaunes in France among other movements, and invokes the “sombre scenario” that “the same could happen again”.[4]

So how is an honest technocrat supposed to roll out his preferred future for the world without the agreement of the global public? How can Schwab and his billionaire friends impose their favoured society on the rest of us?

One answer is relentless brainwashing propaganda churned out by the mass media and academia owned by the 1% elite – what they like to call “a narrative”.

For Schwab, the reluctance of the majority of humankind to leap aboard his 4IR express reflects the tragedy that:

the world lacks a consistent, positive and common narrative that outlines the opportunities and challenges of the fourth industrial revolution, a narrative that is essential if we are to empower a diverse set of individuals and communities and avoid a popular backlash against the fundamental changes under way”.[2]

He adds:

It is, therefore, critical that we invest attention and energy in multistakeholder cooperation across academic, social, political, national and industry boundaries. These interactions and collaborations are needed to create positive, common and hope-filled narratives, enabling individuals and groups from all parts of the world to participate in, and benefit from, the ongoing transformations.”[2]

One of these “narratives” whitewashes the reasons for which 4IR technology needs to be installed everywhere in the world as soon as possible.

Schwab is frustrated that “more than half of the world’s population—around 3.9 billion people—still cannot access the internet”,[1] with 85% of the population of developing countries remaining offline and therefore out of reach, as compared to 22% in the developed world.

The actual aim of the 4IR is to exploit these populations for profit via global techno-imperialism, but of course that cannot be stated in the propaganda “narrative” required to sell the plan.

Instead, their mission has to be presented, as Schwab himself does, as a bid to “develop technologies and systems that serve to distribute economic and social values such as income, opportunity and liberty to all stakeholders”.[1]

He piously postures as a guardian of woke liberal values, declaring:

Thinking inclusively goes beyond thinking about poverty or marginalized communities simply as an aberration—something that we can solve. It forces us to realize that ‘our privileges are located on the same map as their suffering’. It moves beyond income and entitlements, though these remain important. Instead, the inclusion of stakeholders and the distribution of benefits expand freedoms for all.”[1]

The same technique, of a fake “narrative” designed to fool good-thinking citizens into supporting an imperialist capitalist scheme, has been used extensively with regard to climate change.

Schwab is a great fan of Greta Thunberg, of course, who had barely stood up from the pavement after her one-girl protest in Stockholm before being whisked off to address the WEF at Davos.

He is also a supporter of the proposed global New Deal for Nature, particularly via Voice for the Planet, which was launched at the WEF in Davos in 2019 by the Global Shapers, a youth-grooming organisation created by Schwab in 2011 and aptly described by investigative journalist Cory Morningstar as “a grotesque display of corporate malfeasance disguised as good”.

In his 2020 book, Schwab actually lays out the way that fake “youth activism” is being used to advance his capitalist aims.

He writes, in a remarkably frank passage:

Youth activism is increasing worldwide, being revolutionized by social media that increases mobilization to an extent that would have been impossible before. It takes many different forms, ranging from non-institutionalized political participation to demonstrations and protests, and addresses issues as diverse as climate change, economic reforms, gender equality and LGBTQ rights. The young generation is firmly at the vanguard of social change. There is little doubt that it will be the catalyst for change and a source of critical momentum for the Great Reset.[4]

In fact, of course, the ultra-industrial future proposed by Schwab is anything other than green. It’s not nature he’s interested in, but “natural capital” and “incentivizing investment in green and social frontier markets”.[4]

Pollution means profit and environmental crisis is just another business opportunity, as he details in The Fourth Industrial Revolution:

In this revolutionary new industrial system, carbon dioxide turns from a greenhouse pollutant into an asset, and the economics of carbon capture and storage move from being cost as well as pollution sinks to becoming profitable carbon-capture and use-production facilities. Even more important, it will help companies, governments and citizens become more aware of and engaged with strategies to actively regenerate natural capital, allowing intelligent and regenerative uses of natural capital to guide sustainable production and consumption and give space for biodiversity to recover in threatened areas.[2]

Schwab’s “solutions” to the heart-breaking damage inflicted on our natural world by industrial capitalism involve more of the same poison, except worse.

Geoengineering is one of his favourites:

Proposals include installing giant mirrors in the stratosphere to deflect the sun’s rays, chemically seeding the atmosphere to increase rainfall and the deployment of large machines to remove carbon dioxide from the air.”[1]

And he adds:

New approaches are currently being imagined through the combination of Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies, such as nanoparticles and other advanced materials.”[1]

Like all the businesses and pro-capitalist NGOs backing the threatened New Deal for Nature, Schwab is utterly and profoundly ungreen.

For him, the “ultimate possibility” of “clean” and “sustainable” energy includes nuclear fusion[1] and he looks forward to the day when satellites will “blanket the planet with communications pathways that could help connect the more than 4 billion people still lacking online access”.[1]

Schwab also very much regrets all that red tape preventing the unhindered onward march of GM food, warning that:

global food security will only be achieved, however, if regulations on genetically modified foods are adapted to reflect the reality that gene editing offers a precise, efficient and safe method of improving crops.”[1]

The new order envisaged by Schwab will embrace the entire world and so global governance is required in order to impose it, as he repeatedly states.

His preferred future “will only come about through improved global governance”[4] he insists. “Some form of effective global governance”[4] is needed.

The problem we have today is that of a possible “global order deficit”,[4] he claims, adding improbably that the World Health Organization “is saddled with limited and dwindling resources”.[4]

What he is really saying is that his 4IR/great reset society will only function if it imposed simultaneously everywhere on the planet, otherwise “we will become paralysed in our attempts to address and respond to global challenges”.[4]

He admits:

In a nutshell, global governance is at the nexus of all these other issues.”[4]

This all-englobing empire very much frowns on the idea of any particular population democratically deciding to take another path. These “risk becoming isolated from global norms, putting these nations at risk of becoming the laggards of the new digital economy”,[2] warns Schwab.

Any sense of autonomy and grassroots belonging is regarded as a threat from Schwab’s imperialist perspective and is due to be eradicated under the 4IR.

He writes:

Individuals used to identify their lives most closely with a place, an ethnic group, a particular culture or even a language. The advent of online engagement and increased exposure to ideas from other cultures means that identities are now more fungible than previously… Thanks to the combination of historical migration patterns and low-cost connectivity, family structures are being redefined.[2]

Genuine democracy essentially falls into the same category for Schwab. He knows that most people will not willingly go along with plans to destroy their lives and enslave them to a global techno-fascist system of exploitation, so giving them a say in the matter is simply not an option.

This is why the “stakeholder” concept has been so important for Schwab’s project. As discussed above, this is the negation of democracy, with its emphasis instead on “reaching out across stakeholder groups for solution building”.[1]

If the public, the people, are included in this process it is only at a superficial level. The agenda has already been pre-supposed and the decisions pre-made behind the scenes.

Schwab effectively admits as much when he writes:

We must re-establish a dialogue among all stakeholders to ensure mutual understanding that further builds a culture of trust among regulators, non-governmental organizations, professionals and scientists. The public must also be considered, because it must participate in the democratic shaping of biotechnological developments that affect society, individuals and cultures.[1]

So the public must “also” be considered, as an afterthought. Not even directly consulted, just “considered”! And the role of the people, the demos, will merely be to “participate” in the “shaping” of biotechnological developments.

The possibility of the public actually rejecting the very idea of biotechnological developments has been entirely removed thanks to the deliberately in-built assumptions of the stakeholder formula.

The same message is implied in the heading of Schwab’s conclusion to Shaping the Future of the Fourth Industrial Revolution: “What You Can Do to Shape the Fourth Industrial Revolution”.[1] The techno-tyranny cannot challenged or stopped, merely “shaped”.

Schwab uses the term “systems leadership” to describe the profoundly anti-democratic way in which the 1% imposes its agenda on us all, without giving us the chance to say ‘no’.

He writes:

Systems leadership is about cultivating a shared vision for change—working together with all stakeholders of global society—and then acting on it to change how the system delivers its benefits, and to whom. Systems leadership requires action from all stakeholders, including individuals, business executives, social influencers and policy-makers”.[1]

He refers to this full-spectrum top-down control as “the system management of human existence”[1] although others might prefer the term “totalitarianism”.

One of the distinguishing features of historical fascism in Italy and Germany was its impatience with the inconvenient restraints imposed on the ruling class (“the Nation” in fascist language) by democracy and political liberalism.

All of this had to be swept out of the way to allow a Blitzkrieg of accelerated “modernisation”.

We see the same spirit resurging in Schwab’s calls for “agile governance” in which he claims that “the pace of technological development and a number of characteristics of technologies render previous policy-making cycles and processes inadequate”.[1]

He writes:

The idea of reforming governance models to cope with new technologies is not new, but the urgency of doing so is far greater in light of the power of today’s emerging technologies… the concept of agile governance seeks to match the nimbleness, fluidity, flexibility and adaptiveness of the technologies themselves and the private-sector actors adopting them”.[1]

The phrase “reforming governance models to cope with new technologies” really gives the game away here. As under fascism, social structures must be reinvented so as to accommodate the requirements of capitalism and its profit-increasing technologies.

Schwab explains that his “agile governance” would involve creating so-called policy labs – “protected spaces within government with an explicit mandate to experiment with new methods of policy development by using agile principles” – and “encouraging collaborations between governments and businesses to create ‘developtory sandboxes’ and ‘experimental testbeds’ to develop regulations using iterative, cross-sectoral and flexible approaches”.[1]

For Schwab, the role of the state is to advance capitalist aims, not to hold them up to any form of scrutiny. While he is all in favour of the state’s role in enabling a corporate take-over of our lives, he is less keen about its regulatory function, which might slow down the inflow of profit into private hands, and so he envisages “the development of ecosystems of private regulators, competing in markets”.[1]

In his 2018 book, Schwab discusses the problem of pesky regulations and how best to “overcome these limits” in the context of data and privacy.

He comes up with the suggestion of

public-private data-sharing agreements that ‘break glass in case of emergency’. These come into play only under pre-agreed emergency circumstances (such as a pandemic) and can help reduce delays and improve the coordination of first responders, temporarily allowing data sharing that would be illegal under normal circumstances.” [1]

Funnily enough, two years later there was indeed a “pandemic” and these “pre-agreed emergency circumstances” became a reality.

This shouldn’t have been too much of a surprise for Schwab, since his WEF had co-hosted the infamous Event 201 conference in October 2019, which modelled a fictional coronavirus pandemic.

And he wasted little time in bringing out a new book, Covid-19: The Great Reset, co-authored with Thierry Malleret, who runs something called the Monthly Barometer, “a succinct predictive analysis provided to private investors, global CEOs and opinion- and decision-makers”.[4]

Published in July 2020, the book sets out to advance “conjectures and ideas about what the post-pandemic world might, and perhaps should, look like”.[4]

Schwab and Malleret admit that Covid-19 is “one of the least deadly pandemics the world has experienced over the last 2000 years”, adding that “the consequences of COVID-19 in terms of health and mortality will be mild compared to previous pandemics”.[4]

They add:

It does not constitute an existential threat, or a shock that will leave its imprint on the world’s population for decades.” [4]

Yet, incredibly, this “mild” illness is simultaneously presented as the excuse for unprecedented social change under the banner of “The Great Reset”!

And although they explicitly declare that Covid-19 does not constitute a major “shock”, the authors repeatedly deploy the same term to describe the broader impact of the crisis.

Schwab and Malleret place Covid-19 in a long tradition of events which have facilitated sudden and significant changes to our societies.

They specifically invoke the Second World War:

World War II was the quintessential transformational war, triggering not only fundamental changes to the global order and the global economy, but also entailing radical shifts in social attitudes and beliefs that eventually paved the way for radically new policies and social contract provisions (like women joining the workforce before becoming voters).

There are obviously fundamental dissimilarities between a pandemic and a war (that we will consider in some detail in the following pages), but the magnitude of their transformative power is comparable. Both have the potential to be a transformative crisis of previously unimaginable proportions”.[4]

They also join many contemporary “conspiracy theorists” in making a direct comparison between Covid-19 and 9/11:

This is what happened after the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001. All around the world, new security measures like employing widespread cameras, requiring electronic ID cards and logging employees or visitors in and out became the norm. At that time, these measures were deemed extreme, but today they are used everywhere and considered ‘normal’”.[4]

When any tyrant declares the right to rule over a population without taking their views into account, they like to justify their dictatorship with the claim that they are morally entitled to do so because they are “enlightened”.

The same is true of the Covid-fuelled tyranny of Schwab’s great reset, which the book categorises as “enlightened leadership”, adding:

Some leaders and decision-makers who were already at the forefront of the fight against climate change may want to take advantage of the shock inflicted by the pandemic to implement long-lasting and wider environmental changes. They will, in effect, make ‘good use’ of the pandemic by not letting the crisis go to waste”.[4]

The global capitalist ruling elite have certainly been doing their best to “take advantage of the shock inflicted by the panic”, assuring us all since the very earliest days of the outbreak that, for some unfathomable reason, nothing in our lives could ever be the same again.

Schwab and Malleret are, inevitably, enthusiastic in their use of the New Normal framing, despite their admission that the virus was only ever “mild”.

“It is our defining moment”, they crow. “Many things will change forever”. “A new world will emerge”. “The societal upheaval unleashed by COVID-19 will last for years, and possibly generations”.

Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal. The short response is: never.”

They even go as far as proposing a new historical separation between “the pre-pandemic era” and “the post-pandemic world”.[4]

They write:

Radical changes of such consequence are coming that some pundits have referred to a ‘before coronavirus’ (BC) and ‘after coronavirus’ (AC) era. We will continue to be surprised by both the rapidity and unexpected nature of these changes – as they conflate with each other, they will provoke second-, third-, fourth- and more-order consequences, cascading effects and unforeseen outcomes. In so doing, they will shape a ‘new normal’ radically different from the one we will be progressively leaving behind. Many of our beliefs and assumptions about what the world could or should look like will be shattered in the process.[4]

Back in 2016, Schwab was looking ahead to “new ways of using technology to change behavior”[2] and predicting:

The scale and breadth of the unfolding technological revolution will usher in economic, social and cultural changes of such phenomenal proportions that they are almost impossible to envisage”.[2]

One way in which he had hoped his technocratic agenda would be advanced was, as we have noted, through the phoney “solutions” to climate change proposed by fake green capitalists.

Under the title “environmental reset”, Schwab and Malleret state:

At first glance, the pandemic and the environment might seem to be only distantly related cousins; but they are much closer and more intertwined than we think.” [4]

One of the connections is that both the climate and virus “crises” have been used by the WEF and their like to push their agenda of global governance. As Schwab and his co-author put it, “they are global in nature and therefore can only be properly addressed in a globally coordinated fashion”.[4]

Another link is the way that the “the post-pandemic economy” and “the green economy”[4] involve massive profits for largely the same sectors of big business.

Covid-19 has evidently been great news for those capitalists hoping to cash in on environmental destruction, with Schwab and Malleret reporting:

The conviction that ESG strategies benefited from the pandemic and are most likely to benefit further is corroborated by various surveys and reports. Early data shows that the sustainability sector outperformed conventional funds during the first quarter of 2020.”[4]

The capitalist sharks of the so-called “sustainability sector” are rubbing their hands together with glee at the prospect of all the money they stand to make from the Covid-pretexted great fascist reset, in which the state is instrumentalised to fund their hypocritical profiteering.

Note Schwab and Malleret:

The key to crowding private capital into new sources of nature-positive economic value will be to shift key policy levers and public finance incentives as part of a wider economic reset”.[4]

A policy paper prepared by Systemiq in collaboration with the World Economic Forum estimates that building the nature-positive economy could represent more than $10 trillion per year by 2030… Resetting the environment should not be seen as a cost, but rather as an investment that will generate economic activity and employment opportunities.” [4]

Given the intertwining of climate and Covid crises set out by Schwab, we might speculate that the original plan was to push through the New Normal reset on the back of the climate crisis.

But evidently, all that publicity for Greta Thunberg and big business-backed Extinction Rebellion did not whip up enough public panic to justify such measures.

Covid-19 serves Schwab’s purposes perfectly, as the immediate urgency it presents allows the whole process to be speeded up and rushed through without due scrutiny.

This crucial difference between the respective time-horizons of a pandemic and that of climate change and nature loss means that a pandemic risk requires immediate action that will be followed by a rapid result, while climate change and nature loss also require immediate action, but the result (or ‘future reward’, in the jargon of economists) will only follow with a certain time lag.[4]

For Schwab and his friends, Covid-19 is the great accelerator of everything they have been wanting to foist upon us for years.

As he and Malleret say:

The pandemic is clearly exacerbating and accelerating geopolitical trends that were already apparent before the crisis erupted.” [4]

The pandemic will mark a turning point by accelerating this transition. It has crystallized the issue and made a return to the pre-pandemic status quo impossible.” [4]

They can barely conceal their delight at the direction society is now taking:

The pandemic will accelerate innovation even more, catalysing technological changes already under way (comparable to the exacerbation effect it has had on other underlying global and domestic issues) and ‘turbocharging’ any digital business or the digital dimension of any business.[4]
[…]
With the pandemic, the ‘digital transformation’ that so many analysts have been referring to for years, without being exactly sure what it meant, has found its catalyst. One major effect of confinement will be the expansion and progression of the digital world in a decisive and often permanent manner.

In April 2020, several tech leaders observed how quickly and radically the necessities created by the health crisis had precipitated the adoption of a wide range of technologies. In the space of just one month, it appeared that many companies in terms of tech take-up fast-forwarded by several years.[4]

Fate is obviously smiling on Klaus Schwab as this Covid-19 crisis has, happily, succeeded in advancing pretty much every aspect of the agenda he has been promoting over the decades.

Thus he and Malleret report with satisfaction that “the pandemic will fast-forward the adoption of automation in the workplace and the introduction of more robots in our personal and professional lives”.[4]

Lockdowns across the world have, needless to say, provided a big financial boost to those business offering online shopping.

The authors recount:

Consumers need products and, if they can’t shop, they will inevitably resort to purchasing them online. As the habit kicks in, people who had never shopped online before will become comfortable with doing so, while people who were part-time online shoppers before will presumably rely on it more. This was made evident during the lockdowns.

In the US, Amazon and Walmart hired a combined 250,000 workers to keep up with the increase in demand and built massive infrastructure to deliver online. This accelerating growth of e-commerce means that the giants of the online retail industry are likely to emerge from the crisis even stronger than they were in the pre-pandemic era.[4]

They add:

As more and diverse things and services are brought to us via our mobiles and computers, companies in sectors as disparate as e-commerce, contactless operations, digital content, robots and drone deliveries (to name just a few) will thrive. It is not by accident that firms like Alibaba, Amazon, Netflix or Zoom emerged as ‘winners’ from the lockdowns.[4]

By way of corollary, we might suggest that it is “not by accident” that governments which have been captured and controlled by big business, thanks to the likes of the WEF, have imposed a “new reality” COV under which big businesses are the “winners”…

The Covid-inspired good news never stops for all the business sectors which stand to benefit from the Fourth Industrial Repression.

The pandemic may prove to be a boon for online education,” Schwab and Malleret report. “In Asia, the shift to online education has been particularly notable, with a sharp increase in students’ digital enrolments, much higher valuation for online education businesses and more capital available for ‘ed-tech’ start-ups… In the summer of 2020, the direction of the trend seems clear: the world of education, like for so many other industries, will become partly virtual.[4]

Online sports have also taken off:

For a while, social distancing may constrain the practice of certain sports, which will in turn benefit the ever-more powerful expansion of e-sports. Tech and digital are never far away!” [4]

There is similar news from the banking sector:

Online banking interactions have risen to 90 percent during the crisis, from 10 percent, with no drop-off in quality and an increase in compliance.” [4]

The Covid-inspired move into online activity obviously benefits Big Tech, who are making enormous profits out of the crisis, as the authors describe:

The combined market value of the leading tech companies hit record after record during the lockdowns, even rising back above levels before the outbreak started… this phenomenon is unlikely to abate any time soon, quite the opposite.” [4]

But it is also good news for all the businesses involved, who no longer have to pay human beings to work for them. Automation is, and has always been, about saving costs and thus boosting profits for the capitalist elite.

The culture of the fascist New Normal will also provide lucrative spin-off benefits for particular business sectors, such as the packing industry, explain Schwab and Malleret.

The pandemic will certainly heighten our focus on hygiene. A new obsession with cleanliness will particularly entail the creation of new forms of packaging. We will be encouraged not to touch the products we buy. Simple pleasures like smelling a melon or squeezing a fruit will be frowned upon and may even become a thing of the past.”[4]

The authors also describe what sounds very much like a technocratic profit-related agenda behind the “social distancing” which has been such a key element of the Covid “reset”.

They write:

In one form or another, social- and physical-distancing measures are likely to persist after the pandemic itself subsides, justifying the decision in many companies from different industries to accelerate automation. After a while, the enduring concerns about technological unemployment will recede as societies emphasize the need to restructure the workplace in a way that minimizes close human contact.

Indeed, automation technologies are particularly well suited to a world in which human beings can’t get too close to each other or are willing to reduce their interactions. Our lingering and possibly lasting fear of being infected with a virus (COVID-19 or another) will thus speed the relentless march of automation, particularly in the fields most susceptible to automation.[4]

As previously mentioned, Schwab has long been frustrated by all those tiresome regulations which stop capitalists from making as much money as they would like to, by focusing on economically irrelevant concerns such as the safety and well being of human beings.

But – hooray! – the Covid crisis has provided the perfect excuse for doing away with great swathes of these outmoded impediments to prosperity and growth.

One area in which meddlesome red tape is being abandoned is health. Why would any right-minded stakeholder imagine that any particular obligation for care and diligence should be allowed to impinge on the profitability of this particular business sector?

Schwab and Malleret are overjoyed to note that telemedicine will “benefit considerably” from the Covid emergency:

The necessity to address the pandemic with any means available (plus, during the outbreak, the need to protect health workers by allowing them to work remotely) removed some of the regulatory and legislative impediments related to the adoption of telemedicine.” [4]

The ditching of regulations is a general phenomenon under the New Normal global regime, as Schwab and Malleret relate:

To date governments have often slowed the pace of adoption of new technologies by lengthy ponderings about what the best regulatory framework should look like but, as the example of telemedicine and drone delivery is now showing, a dramatic acceleration forced by necessity is possible.

During the lockdowns, a quasi-global relaxation of regulations that had previously hampered progress in domains where the technology had been available for years suddenly happened because there was no better or other choice available. What was until recently unthinkable suddenly became possible… New regulations will stay in place.[4]

They add:

The current imperative to propel, no matter what, the ‘contactless economy’ and the subsequent willingness of regulators to speed it up means that there are no holds barred.” [4]

“No holds barred”. Make no mistake: this is the language adopted by capitalism when it abandons its pretence at liberal democracy and switches into full-on fascist mode.

It is clear from Schwab and Malleret’s work that a fascistic merging of state and business, to the advantage of the latter, underpins their great reset.

Phenomenal sums of money have been transferred from the public purse into the bulging pockets of the 1% since the very start of the Covid crisis, as they acknowledge:

In April 2020, just as the pandemic began to engulf the world, governments across the globe had announced stimulus programmes amounting to several trillion dollars, as if eight or nine Marshall Plans had been put into place almost simultaneously.
[…]
COVID-19 has rewritten many of the rules of the game between the public and private sectors […] The benevolent (or otherwise) greater intrusion of governments in the life of companies and the conduct of their business will be country- and industry-dependent, therefore taking many different guises.
[…]
Measures that would have seemed inconceivable prior to the pandemic may well become standard around the world as governments try to prevent the economic recession from turning into a catastrophic depression.
[…]
Increasingly, there will be calls for government to act as a ‘payer of last resort’ to prevent or stem the spate of mass layoffs and business destruction triggered by the pandemic. All these changes are altering the rules of the economic and monetary policy ‘game’.[4]

Schwab and his fellow author welcome the prospect of increased state powers being used to prop up big business profiteering.

They write:

One of the great lessons of the past five centuries in Europe and America is this: 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.”[4]

And they add:

Looking to the future, governments will most likely, but with different degrees of intensity, decide that it’s in the best interest of society to rewrite some of the rules of the game and permanently increase their role.”[4]

The idea of rewriting the rules of the game is, again, very reminiscent of fascist language, as of course is the idea of permanently increasing the role of the state in helping the private sector.

Indeed, it is worth comparing Schwab’s position on this issue with that of Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, who responded to economic crisis in 1931 by launching a special emergency body, L’Istituto mobiliare italiano, to aid businesses.

He declared this was:

a means of energetically driving the Italian economy towards its corporative phase, which is to say a system which fundamentally respects private property and initiative, but ties them tightly to the State, which alone can protect, control and nourish them”.[5]

Suspicions about the fascistic nature of Schwab’s great reset are confirmed, of course, by the police-state measures that have been rolled out across the world to ensure compliance with “emergency” Covid measures.

The sheer brute force that never lies far beneath the surface of the capitalist system becomes increasingly visible when it enters it fascist stage and this is very much in evidence in Schwab and Malleret’s book.

The word “force” is deployed time and time again in the context of Covid-19. Sometimes this is in a business context, as with the statements that “COVID-19 has forced all the banks to accelerate a digital transformation that is now here to stay” COVD or that “the micro reset will force every company in every industry to experiment new ways of doing business, working and operating”. [4]

But sometimes it is applied directly to human beings, or “consumers” as Schwab and his ilk prefer to think of us.

During the lockdowns, many consumers previously reluctant to rely too heavily on digital applications and services were forced to change their habits almost overnight: watching movies online instead of going to the cinema, having meals delivered instead of going out to restaurants, talking to friends remotely instead of meeting them in the flesh, talking to colleagues on a screen instead of chit-chatting at the coffee machine, exercising online instead of going to the gym, and so on
[…]
Many of the tech behaviours that we were forced to adopt during confinement will through familiarity become more natural. As social and physical distancing persist, relying more on digital platforms to communicate, or work, or seek advice, or order something will, little by little, gain ground on formerly ingrained habits.[4]

Under a fascist system, individuals are not offered the choice as to whether they want to comply with its demands or not, as Schwab and Malleret make quite clear regarding so-called contact-tracing:

No voluntary contact-tracing app will work if people are unwilling to provide their own personal data to the governmental agency that monitors the system; if any individual refuses to download the app (and therefore to withhold information about a possible infection, movements and contacts), everyone will be adversely affected.” [4]

This, they reflect, is another great advantage of the Covid crisis over the environmental one which might have been used to impose their New Normal:

While for a pandemic, a majority of citizens will tend to agree with the necessity to impose coercive measures, they will resist constraining policies in the case of environmental risks where the evidence can be disputed.” [4]

These “coercive measures”, which we are all expected to go along with, will of course involve unimaginable levels of fascistic surveillance of our lives, particularly in our role as wage slaves.

Write Schwab and Malleret: “The corporate move will be towards greater surveillance; for better or for worse, companies will be watching and sometimes recording what their workforce does. The trend could take many different forms, from measuring body temperatures with thermal cameras to monitoring via an app how employees comply with social distancing”. (135)

Coercive measures of one kind or another are also likely to be used to force people to take the Covid vaccines currently being lined up.

Schwab is deeply connected to that world, being on a “first-name basis” with Bill Gates and having been hailed by Big Pharma mainstay Henry McKinnell, chairman and CEO of Pfizer Inc, as “a person truly dedicated to a truly noble cause”.

So it is not surprising that he insists, with Malleret, that “a full return to ‘normal’ cannot be envisaged before a vaccine is available”.[4]

He adds:

“The next hurdle is the political challenge of vaccinating enough people worldwide (we are collectively as strong as the weakest link) with a high enough compliance rate despite the rise of anti-vaxxers.” [4]

“Anti-vaxxers” thus join Schwab’s list of threats to his project, along with anti-globalization and anti-capitalist protesters, Gilets Jaunes and all those engaged in “class conflicts”, “societal resistance” and “political backlash”.

The majority of the world’s population have already been excluded from decision-making processes by the lack of democracy which Schwab wants to accentuate through his stakeholderist corporate domination, his “agile governance”, his totalitarian “system management of human existence”.

But how does he envisage dealing with the “sombre scenario” of people rising up against his great new-normalist reset and his transhumanist Fourth Industrial Revolution?

What degree of “force” and “coercive measures” would he be prepared to accept in order to ensure the dawning of his technocratic new age?

The question is a chilling one, but we should also bear in mind the historical example of the 20th century regime into which Schwab was born.

Hitler’s new Nazi normal was meant to last for a thousand years, but came crashing down 988 years ahead of target.

Just because Hitler said, with all the confidence of power, that his Reich would last for a millennium, this didn’t mean that it was so.

Just because Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret and their friends say that we are now entering the Fourth Industrial Revolution and our world will be changed forever, this doesn’t mean that it is so.

We don’t have to accept their New Normal. We don’t have to go along with their fearmongering. We don’t have to take their vaccines. We don’t have to let them implant us with smartphones or edit our DNA. We don’t have to walk, muzzled and submissive, straight into their transhumanist hell.

We can denounce their lies! Expose their agenda! Refuse their narrative! Reject their toxic ideology! Resist their fascism!

Klaus Schwab is not a god, but a human being. Just one elderly man. And those he works with, the global capitalist elite, are few in number. Their aims are not the aims of the vast majority of humankind.

Their transhumanist vision is repulsive to nearly everyone outside of their little circle and they do not have consent for the technocratic dictatorship they are trying to impose on us.

That, after all, is why they have had to go to such lengths to force it upon us under the false flag of fighting a virus. They understood that without the “emergency” justification, we were never going to go along with their warped scheme.

They are scared of our potential power because they know that if we stand up, we will defeat them. We can bring their project crashing down before it has even properly started.

We are the people, we are the 99%, and together we can grab back our freedom from the deadly jaws of the fascist machine!

Jared Diamond & Yuval Harari talk about big history and tormorrow
 
2016-04-25 15:47:06
Diamond “Finite Resources and Human Inequality will weigh human life down”
Harari “Whether could handle the body and brain or not affects the destiny of a country”
Diamond will give keynote speech at ‘the Seoul Forum 2016’ on May 11 in Korea
“What will be the greatest driving force for changes of human society in the future?”

Guess what would be the answer from two great scholars-Jared Diamond, who is called Charles Darwin of 21st century and the author of ‘Guns, germs and steel’, and Yuval Harari, who is a professor of history and the author of the international bestseller ‘Sapiens’?

The big talk of the century which Dr.Diamond and Prof.Harari had had, was arranged by Seoul Economic Daily, one of the oldest economic daily in Korea, celebrating the Seoul Forum 2016.‘SEOUL FORUM 2016’ will take place at the Shilla Hotel in Seoul, Korea, from May 11 to 12.
comment image

This is the world’s first talk between two scholars through the e-mail.Dr.Diamond and Prof. Harari respectively located in USA and Israel, so have exchanged opinions by sending and receiving E-mail. Seoul Economic Daily made a request to Prof. Yuval Harari to ask six questions. However Prof. Yuval Harari answered the questions first and then threw the questions to Dr. Diamond with his comments. Dr. Diamond also gave his opinion about those questions and comments. And as Prof.Harari added his opinion on Dr. Diamond’s answer. Dr, Diamond’s final responses will be unveiled at the ‘SEOUL FORUM 2016’ from May 11 to 12.

And for now Seoul Economic Daily releases a full talk of two great scholars ahead of the ‘SEOUL FORUM 2016’.
 
https://youtu.be/AvEc3hD9hOg
1. What will be the greatest driving force for changes of human society in the future?
 
Prof. Harari: The greatest driving force will undoubtedly be technology, especially computer science and biotechnology. Whereas in the past the main products of the human economy were guns, steel, textiles and food, the main products of the twenty-first-century economy will be bodies, brains and minds.

Throughout history humans have changed the world around them – they cleared fo-rests, domesticated plants and animals, dug irrigation canals and built roads, bridges and cities. But humans did not have the power to change themselves. We still have the same bodies and minds we had in the Stone Age. In the coming century, humans will of course continue to change the outside world, but for the first time in history they will also gain the power to reshape their own bodies and minds.

“Born in Ravensburg in 1938, Klaus Schwab is a child of Adolf Hitler’s Germany, a police-state regime built on fear and violence, on brainwashing and control, on propaganda and lies, on industrialism and eugenics, on dehumanisation and “disinfection”, on a chilling and grandiose vision of a “new order” that would last a thousand years.”….whoever writes this nonsense is no student of REAL history. Actually folks the lies and propaganda were going towards Germany from the usual suspects. Such a shame, so many decades after WW2, we are still bombarded with lies and hoaxes regarding National Socialist Germany.

Because Schwab was born in Germany, his policies are suddenly “fascist” and compared to Hitler! The great leader would not have used such tactics in his worst nightmares. But thanks for indirectly revealing who is behind this. The Great Reset is a judaic in nature. It is a communist tactic, totalitarian, Stalinist, Bolshevik, but not “fascist”. The Great Reset is aimed at exterminating large numbers of people and the global jewish banksters are at its source. So, the COVID part will lead to vaccines that sterilize women, and genetically alter everyone.

Although the article has great information about Schwab, the author clearly has no clue about Hitler, History and the NSDAP. In all his spittle flecked diatribes about “Nazi’s” the author fails to consider how everything he implies could said in spades about Communists. For example, if Fascism leads to industry being under the control of a few individuals, what does he think happens when Communist jews take over a country? Is it better for country to have talmudic aliens running their industry or Nationalists?

HItler was a Nationalist and a Socialist who cared about Germans and German culture first. Klaus is Globalist Elitist who wants to genocide all Europeans and erase their culture. There could not be a bigger difference.

He thinks that Hitler cared about German ruling class and not Germans and German culture first, as you say… Germans and German culture were no more than a sacrificial lamb to him. 20 million, no? Plus countless millions of other peoples. What did that do for the German culture?… and reputation? As for communism… let me tell you about communism: it was an excuse, just like you say, for a totalitarian state, different from the German one but it has that one thing in common- seeks to dominate every aspect of its subjects’ lives. So when you ‘unlike’ communism you mean totalitarianism, which Hitler’s Germany also used as its lifeblood… except the blood was blue, no? Goebells’ propaganda were its red blood cells. Or was it blue? Anyway, both Commies and Nazis needed an excuse to get this Tot thing going. Proletarian one in the case of the former and Lebensraum in the case of the latter. They also needed a trigger. Conter-counter- revolution for the former, and Jewish question for the latter. The similarities with the current attempts at Tot are striking. Today’s excuse? Saving the Planet no less. Trigger? Fake plague. Only an idiot (this word is selected not randomly, as it means – apolitical citizen in translation) and an ignorant person doesn’t find this suspicious…

Because those ‘peace proposals’ were stalking horses, delivered in utter bad faith, to stall for time while he pursued his rearmament & conquest program in secret. This is conclusively proved by copious contemporaneous internal Nazi documentation recovered after the war. Seriously, why would there have been any world war to be ‘prevented’ if Germany hadn’t gobbled up Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland under one false pretext after another? Stop taking Hitler’s speeches at face value, like some present-day Neville Chamberlain without the hindsight of history.

I have to disagree… the author does know his history—the false narrative taught in academia. What he doesn’t know is true history, if he did, would mean his indoctrination failed or collapsed.
We are repeating history right now…just like in Russia 1917 and South Africa 1990…the communist threat is upon us—the abolishment of private property and the elimination of the middle class
followed by genocide is the communist way and its heading our way.

We repeat history, because we don’t know true history. Our youth are taught, Jefferson bad, Stalin good….that national pride is bad, communism good. If they only knew….
“Communism is not [and never was] a creation of the masses to overthrow the Banking establishment, but rather a creation of the Banking establishment to overthrow and enslave the people.”-Anthony J. Hilder

The Frankfurt School- and their weapons of critical theory, first generation of Critical Theorists- Max Horkheimer, Theodor Adorno, Herbert Marcuse, Walter Benjamin, Friedrich Pollock,
Leo Lowenthal, and Eric Fromm. Their ideas were so awful…they literally fled Europe, unfortunately for us they settled in America. They also settled in education, movie studios, music, sex, commercials, religion and health. Basically everything.

You can see their work in our presidential election…so fraudulent they didn’t care to even hide it. Portland/Antifa/BLM…AOC productions of communism. Feminism, multiculturalism…political correctness, hate crimes, racism…all are communist in some form or another. What should scare everybody, is what the Frankfurt schools in America have done to our graduates…they are not liberty minded people…they are full of critical theory. The upcoming generation will not be there to pick of the constitutional pieces and the second is the only one left.

The first time I heard people talk, about what really happened, it took me four years to finally do my own investigation, not only about WW2, (which was just continuation of WW1) but the political theatre at the time, where communism was attempting world conquest. Orwell said that one of the best things you can do to destroy a civilization is to destroy their knowledge of history. This they have done. For 12 years the Germans knew what it was like to be free, which was something the Rothschild Bank could afford. The richest man in the world and he couldn’t afford to have the world see what it was like to free of usury, debt and parasitical money lending practices of his banking cartel.

The Germans never wanted war…in fact, when they witnessed the genocide in Russia of millions of Russians by communism…they signed an agreement with Japan and Italy to fight against communism. Over 800 thousand Ukrainians fought in Germany’s army. Mercenaries from over 32 nations joined up to fight. The battle was between communism and everybody else. According to General Patton, we fought against the wrong enemy. Without a doubt. We helped communism escape Russia and infect the rest of the world’s governments.

“Hitler will have no war (does not want war), but we will force it on him, not this year, but soon.” — Emil Ludwig Cohn in Les Annales, June, 1934 (also quoted in his book” The New Holy Alliance”).

“You must understand that this war is not against Hitler or National Socialism, but against the strength of the German people, which is to be smashed once and for all, regardless of whether it is in the hands of Hitler or a Jesuit priest.”–Winston Churchill, Emrys Hughes, Winston Churchill – His Career in War and Peace, p. 145; quoted as per: Adrian Preissinger, Von Sachsenhausen bis Buchenwald, p. 23.

“The real motive behind Communism is not to distribute the world equally, but the Communist Party is just a front for the super-rich as an instrument for gaining and using power. It is not the Communists that run Communism. There is yet another controlling power behind Communism. Communism and socialism are just arms of the more devilish conspiracy working behind the public eye that is not being run from Moscow or Peking, but from New York, Paris and London.” The Illuminati going to America by Alex Christopher

Our interests in Washington are greatly extending the Point Four Program (viz. Colombo Plan) for developing industry in backward areas of the world, so that after the industrial plants and cities of Europe and America are destroyed by atomic warfare, the Whites can offer no resistance against the large masses of the dark races, who will maintain an unchallenged technological superiority. And so, with the vision of world victory before you, go back to your countries and intensify your good work, until that approaching day when Israeli will reveal herself in all her glorious destiny as the Light of the World.” Rabbi Rabbinovitch,  Emergency Council of European Rabbis in Budapest, Hungary, Jan 12, 1952

“World War II. Three Jewish-controlled countries — England, U.S., USSR — pulverizing a sincere Christian nation attempting to escape the fatal embrace of the Jewish world bank, which by now, 75 years later, throttles the whole world with its ruthless exploitation of money, perpetually squeezing the life out of humans and other lifeforms.” John Kaminsky

Okay, all of that, & you don’t even realize that the Trump movement which you defend (as do I) is just as opposed to the form of corporatist techno-fascism outlined here as to Communism. Both are anti-human, totalitarian movement, whose differing conceptions of how the economy, like means of production, should be organized becomes irrelevant in the face of the means of control employed to institute & maintain them.

There are parallels between what he said and the existence of the NSDAP and the fascists leaning integrated as part of Mussolini’s fascism. To state Hitler was simply a socialist denies the extreme integration of Mussolini’s influence which was/is Fascism. There may be ultimate similarities with communism in your interpretation of the doctrine but the party’s roots were anti-communism to the extent it blamed the loss of WW1 on a communist conspiracy to destroy Germany. Anti-communism does not eliminate the gathering the right-wing, manipulating corporate capitalists/corporations to become wards of the government essentially controlled by a small elite group or oligarchy. The amount of disinformation propagated by Hitler and his cohorts in order to re-order the population of Germany was astounding. Hitler established his own oligarchy, fascist based, then created the “Fuehrer” the crown jewel of totalitarian fascism. The oligarchy was reduced once the Fuehrer was fully established. Interwoven within the overarching philosophy of fascism was Nationalism which, again, placed the fascist machine above the people much in the same way as the author suggests World Order, a concept that could be described as simply a broadening of Nationalism, will follow and is following a similar approach. I know this aggravates Nazis but Hitler did not care about all the German people. He genocided the Jews to the best of his ability all of which were Germans. To Hilter only Arians in the German population were acceptable and he, additionally persecuted nearly every religion but Catholicism. His rhetoric, much like is described in the article, was that he cared about the German people but the truth is he cared about their value to his aspiring to rule the country. He sacrificed countless countryman in an effort to support his vision without remorse or apology. Klaus and Hitler may not be exact reflections of one another but they are cut from the same Fascist cloth.

Brilliant article. Covers a lot of ground and more and more people are getting wise to what is going on. Its no wonder our governments hate information like this. This is real jounalism.

The planning of this pandemic hoax has been in the pipeline a long time. Its a crisis of finance capitalism: more precisely, fictitious capital: Its purpose is a pre-emptive top down seizure to prevent global revolution.

This plan of Schwab and the central banks is extremely risky as more and more people wake up to it. The anger and eventual global uprising will be much more severe than anything they are trying to avert. They are desparate and those colluding should be very nervous.

If you listen to World Economic Forum discussions you can’t help but notice how circular they are, endlessly going on about AI, robots, 3D printers and other techno-babble. This elite think-tankery hides the corporatocracy shielding behind it.

However their scheming will quickly unravel with high unemployment and no real productive capitalism due to the lack of wages and spending. Then their bubble will burst. The King will be seen to be in the all together.

Excellent article. For fascism, look (for many) closer to home. The Nazi regime was implanted by Anglo-American financiers and their adjoints. The fascism we see today is far beyond. It’s got all the hallmarks of manipulation in so-called Democratic societies. Schwab was 7, when the war was over. More importantly, he experienced the second US take-over of Germany. As for eugenics too, look to the US and Sweden, which had programmes long before Germany. So don’t side-track us with Hitlerism… that person was just a catalyst for the aims of the financial and political elites. The fascism we see today is a corporate fascism where politicians play a smaller role as executives. The totality of the apparently willing ‘Gleichschaltung’ of the press, the enormous bullshitery of face masks, mispresented ‘health’ info on a global scale lets everything previous pale in comparison. Those who still believe in the “good” defeating evil Hitler are the most vulnerable to this beguilement. Note that I do think H was evil, terrible, disgusting and stupid. The “other” side (if there really was one), wasn’t good, though.

What is most astonishing about Schwab’s ideas is that he has completely cut off all notion of human interaction from processes that mean nothing without human interaction. This increasing negation of the human element in production leads to …what? The answer can only be that the ones receiving the products are the only humans left. That would be Schwab and his cronies. The eventual endpoint of this is a single person masturbating in a room whose walls consist only of mirrors.

“There is a real risk however which the authors ( “The Great Reset” by Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret ) recognize, namely that a strong nationalistic feeling may persevere. They call it “a broken sense of normalcy”. Nationalistic thinking may turn factions of the world ‘inwards’, more patriotic. They, the “nationalists”, will seek division or abolition of this new global government. The WEF authors see this nationalistic trend – they never call it preserving or returning to sovereignty – as dangerous. They predict, it will result in continuous conflicts and revolutions. Rebellions instead of building towards the Global Common Good.”

Final Comment.

Fascism and communism started from a very strong national State with its own military and monetary sovereignty to put in action their own social and economic policies , on the other hand, Davos elites, of which Klaus Scwab is just a squalid servant, instead wanted and still want to wipe away what remains, very few by now, of the Western national States to make their “Great Reset” as soon as possible, and Covid-19 is just a trick to make things faster towards their “Great Reset”, that’s it!!

Obviously you have a naive definition of capitalism. True capitalism does not endorse “public-private partnerships” and what is often called capitalism is just good old fashioned cronyism or corporatism which has at its heart the sickness of collectivism.

What a load of lying victor’s history propaganda nonsense.

“Good propaganda does not need to lie, indeed it may not lie. It has no reason to fear the truth. It is a mistake to believe that people cannot take the truth. They can.

The war had nothing to do with defeating the Nazis- it was about divvying up the rest of the planet among the ghouls. WAKE UP. Look at those straight lines on the map of Africa and elsewhere and then look at the game Monopoly….

Another comment from the “Designated Troll”….

This has all the earmarks of another attempt at immortality by an old man who is nearing the end of life. The concept of preserving consciousness through artificial means is so telling. People have been searching for immortality in some form or another since the beginning of history. I was amused in high school history when learning about Ponce de Leon in Florida. This is more of the same. A rich old man looking for the Fountain of Youth. Having one’s consciousness preserved and bottled up in a mobile “exoskeleton” of some type sounds more like hell to me. Just sayin……….I am laughing……..WTF

However, I agree that his methodology is definitely serious and needs attention from those of the 99%. It’s like,….. “Hey, support my plan! Look at the benefits. You can become immortal if you do what I say.”

This is only my opinion. Don’t take it personally…..

It amused me to think that I am sure Schwab guards his own personal data rather like the crown jewels. Not for him to be numbered in the 99%.

When people talk about robots taking over the majority of jobs, they seem to overlook the obvious.

Take drones, they require an army of humans to keep them running, flying and maintaining them. Humans come remarkably cheaply, are self repairing and even able to re programme themselves as necessary.

Schwab keeps referring to money. When the German money system collapsed, it lost all meaning when a barrow load of money would buy you an egg but maybe that is what he wants as some people must have emerged much richer.

He is right to be worried that his plans will only work on a complete global level. If China and Russia pursue the New Silk Road and up the use of coal as a cheap form of energy, there will be a widening gap between the West being swallowed up into a large black hole whilst Lord Mackinder’s nightmare of a united Asia emerges.

To think that just one small atom bomb set off in the upper atmosphere, would mean that that country would immediately revert into a new horse age. It is probable that people like Schwab have bought a few horses just in case.

from “The Horses” by Edwin Muir

“Barely a twelvemonth after
The seven days’ war that put the world to sleep,
Late in the evening the strange horses came.
…..
On the second day
The radios failed; we turned the knobs; no answer.
On the third day a warship passed us, heading north,
Dead bodies piled on the deck. On the sixth day
A plane plunged over us into the sea. Thereafter
Nothing. The radios dumb;
And still they stand in corners of our kitchens,
And stand, perhaps, turned on, in a million rooms
All over the world. But now if they should speak,
If on a sudden they should speak again,
….
We would not listen, we would not let it bring
That old bad world that swallowed its children quick
At one great gulp. We would not have it again.
………
The tractors lie about our fields; at evening
They look like dank sea-monsters couched and waiting.
We leave them where they are and let them rust:
‘They’ll molder away and be like other loam.’
……
                    And then, that evening
Late in the summer the strange horses came.
We heard a distant tapping on the road,
A deepening drumming; it stopped, went on again
And at the corner changed to hollow thunder.
We saw the heads
Like a wild wave charging and were afraid.
We had sold our horses in our fathers’ time
To buy new tractors. Now they were strange to us
As fabulous steeds set on an ancient shield.
……..
We did not dare go near them. Yet they waited,
Stubborn and shy, as if they had been sent
By an old command to find our whereabouts
And that long-lost archaic companionship.
In the first moment we had never a thought
That they were creatures to be owned and used.
Among them were some half-a-dozen colts
Dropped in some wilderness of the broken world,
Yet new as if they had come from their own Eden.
Since then they have pulled our ploughs and borne our loads
But that free servitude still can pierce our hearts.
Our life is changed; their coming our beginning.”

A vision of the future worse than anything I’ve read in science fiction, worse than anything I could have imagined, the pinnacle of dystopia porn
The only crumb of “comfort” to be had is that it lacks internal consistency: on the one hand we are warned that we will have to keep working long past the time when we should have retired, on the other we are told that everyone from postmen to doctors will be made obsolete by drones and “chat-bots”
How will we consume if we can’t earn a living?
Since the beginning of this so-called “pandemic” I have felt obligated to try and keep informed, to try and understand what is happening
No longer

One one level Klaus Schwab is just a hustler who got lucky. Setting up a trade association or a businesses club, selling memberships and directories and getting yourself interviewed on the TV channels with space to fill (Sky, CNN, CNBC) is a mug’s game. But he hit on the location: Switzerland, home to generations of “look no hands, collaborators” and their tradition of hiding out in hush, hush secrecy.

The skiing set, such as Prince Charles and his Dutch counterparts, inevitably found Schwab’s talking shop congenial. The noveau riche executives looking to adopt a lifestyle jostled for an invitation.

Its rise coincided with the flurry of trade agreements GATT and suchlike, which really were not free trade agreements but backroom discussions about how to circumvent national laws (deregulation) and legalize collaboration between supra-national corporations and their major shareholders (syndicates). In other words the opposite of free. Such machinations require not so much a place to scheme as somewhere to brief the minions.

Don’t overestimate Schwab’s ideas. He is one of Santa’s elves and thus banal. It is the usual suspects, with their desire to launder money and genes, that put WEF on the map but they did the real conspiring and decision making elsewhere.

A cult of personality, or cult of the leader,[1] arises when a country’s regime – or, more rarely, an individual – uses the techniques of mass media, propaganda, the big lie, spectacle, the arts, patriotism, and government-organized demonstrations and rallies to create an idealized, heroic, and worshipful image of a leader, often through unquestioning flattery and praise. A cult of personality is similar to apotheosis, except that it is established by modern social engineering techniques, usually by the state or the party in one-party states and dominant-party states. It is often seen in totalitarian or authoritarian countries.

The term came to prominence in 1956, in Nikita Khrushchev’s secret speech On the Cult of Personality and Its Consequences, given on the final day of the 20th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. In the speech, Khrushchev, who was the First Secretary of the Communist Party – in effect, the leader of the country – criticized the lionization and idealization of Joseph Stalin, and by implication, his Communist contemporary Mao Zedong, as being contrary to Marxist doctrine. The speech was later made public and was part of the “de-Stalinization” process in the Soviet Union.

And thank you for pointing toward the satanic nature of the conflict; which Trump describes as being an “existential war” against an “invisible enemy”. See my recent post, here:

After the ancient warlords came the religious and racist rbble-rousers. Then, imperialist monsters took the stage. In late imperialism, major governments became enforcers for plutocrats. All these forces have been regressive, undermining sustainability by reducing the global variety of values, traditions, skills, economics, rules, etc.

In a logical progression, trans-national capital has demonstrated a great deal of subversion and control through unaccountable puppets at EU, UN, etc. The overlords think they are ready for the gambit of overt global domination. I have listed their likely goals under another article.

This particular frontman’s specific sources of finance would be interesting. Not that he has cost them much so far.

There are millions of people in the world who would not notice this technocracy and don’t care.

“So how is an honest technocrat supposed to roll out his preferred future for the world without the agreement of the global public? How can Schwab and his billionaire friends impose their favoured society on the rest of us?

One answer is relentless brainwashing propaganda churned out by the mass media and academia owned by the 1% elite – what they like to call a narrative.”

The COVID narrative to be precise.  “PCR Testing is a faulty and invalid means of identifying the spread of COVID, which means ALL MAJOR DECISIONS taken by the WHO and national governments since late January 2020 (supported by faulty statistics) are invalid. Moreover, official reports including the WHO confirm that Covid-19 is not a killer virus, it has features similar to seasonal influenza. ”  https://www.globalresearch.ca/the-covid-19-roadmap-towards-economic-chaos-and-societal-destruction/5725602

The Great Reset is about restructuring Western societies into a neo-feudal surveillance state, or to put it simply a “capitalist dictatorship” via AI surveillance and bio-fascism.

If there’s any ‘consolation’ to be enjoyed from this long overdue and slightly more visible ‘announcement’, it might be that very soon we’ll be seeing and hearing a lot less ad-homenim attacks and ridicule such as ‘nut-jobs’, ‘conspiracy theorists’ etc., as we’ve come to expect and even accept; whenever we tried in vain to wake-up the huge army of compliant, sleepwalking masked zombies about this obvious ruse and the agenda hidden within its new ‘covid-19’ Trojan Horse.
The army of course consisting of the collaborators in this war, being our indoctrinated, group thinking and ignorant fellow citizens, aka: ‘Karens’, who have been, (albeit mainly unwittingly), most instrumental in helping this Satan worshipping creature to orchestrate and advance his despicable, humanity loathing agenda.

A classic case of, “He Who Laughs Last Laughs Best”Not that any of us would regard it is any laughing matter, of course, but surely would be an example of ‘we told you so’ or, ‘we tried to warn you but you refused to listen’.

It happened with farming too. Not a lot of people know how to get wild food anymore, and that’s been going on for millennia. At least now it’s easier to get that information if you want it, provided the Internet doesn’t collapse and all the hard copies vanish and all the experts keel over.

*The censoring of information contrary to an unelected global body’s (WHO) current proclamations, by tech platforms that control a large part of the world’s communication. This is a vigorous de facto advancement towards ‘global governance’, one of Schwab’s goals, in fact the central one.

*The massive growth of e-learning, & the decline of in-person learning. This is not explained by ‘convenience’, in fact it is not the preferred option of most of its users (parents of children).

*A highly experimental vaccine which qualifies as a genetic modification of the human organism, for a relatively non-catastrophic disease, pushed through as the sine qua non of being able to live somewhat normal lives again, bypassing years of regulatory procedure designed to prove of safety & efficacy, & with a fair shot of becoming a mandatory mdical procedure for meaningful participation is society. This ticks many of Schwab’s boxes. Additionally, it sets a precedent. If eliminating standard regulatory norms is justified for this disease, then wouldn’t it be even more so for much greater killers such as heart disease & diabetes?

*Quoting Schwab: ‘watching movies online instead of going to the cinema, having meals delivered instead of going out to restaurants, talking to friends
remotely instead of meeting them in the flesh, talking to colleagues on a
screen instead of chit-chatting at the coffee machine, exercising
online instead of going to the gym, and so on’. None of these things could have predictably come to pass solely through the driver of ‘convenience’. Obviously people could have done most of these things before, & if they were driven by convenience alone, they would have done so sooner rather than later, & exclusively. But these things have many other human factors that led people to often prefer them (obviously!), until they were compelled by fear, guilt, & coercion to avoid them. Fitting Schwab’s thesis.

*The normalization of particular, coercive ‘non-pharmaceutical interventions’ aimed at large-scale modifications of human behavior. This is unprecedented stuff, & would not have been as readily adopted, & alas, accepted by too many, absent the pandemic narrative.

*The rapid advancement of redefinition of the scientific project as being somehow a matter of expert consensus (already previously progressing, though more slowly, through the climate change narrative), in particular the consensus of experts who are members of or endorsed by a particular set of official bodies. As a corollary, the advancement of the view that contrary findings or interpretations are not opportunities to strengthen one’s own ideas & reduce the sum of human ignorance, but ‘dangerous misinformation’ to be suppressed. This is very real.

*And above all, the fact that these things were ushered in using a state of panic, rather than either a deliberative process or an organic societal evolution. To paraphrase Naomi Klein, Disaster Utopianism.

You seem to be an ostrich with its head in the sand.

Some were going to happen one way or another, but no, the ‘new normal’ he wants is vastly exaggerated. By this time next year, the only major changes will be responsiveness to future pandemics, the partial increase of things being done online instead of in person (like jobs that don’t strictly need people to be on site all the time), and more companies bringing their product production back to their home countries instead of outsourcing (especially meds, since when travel is restricted, supply from other countries can screw up a lot of in-country supply from them; means more jobs for people like me to pick from, and also more expensive product). People will rush right back into the streets and do social gatherings in person and all that the second they don’t see a threat from the pandemic anymore, which is seen by all the anti-maskers and people who don’t take the virus seriously (until they get sick, then they’re stuck at home or in hospital denying that the virus exists while dying from it, small percentage that it is).

Digital is convenient. The world was going to go mostly digital one way or another, because people like having easier ways to do things instead of killing themselves for stuff they want. It’s instinct. Even animals do it. Give a hawk the option of spending half an hour plucking its prey before it can eat it versus taking a ready to eat piece of food from a human gloved hand, it will go for the easy food every time. Give a wolf the option of tearing apart a deer you just shot dead versus chasing down a live one running away, they’ll go for the carcass every time (unless they’re not starving and antsy for action, maybe, but most of the pack will go for the easy food first).

In-person social interaction is also instinctive for the vast majority of people. Even introverts like me like to go out every so often. That’s not going to change after just a year and a half, tops, of mostly doing interaction over the Internet. If anything, there’ll be a massive surge of people piling out once the all-clear is given to make up for lost time. It’s gonna be nuts. I’m going to have to hide in here until it calms down again. There’s no beating human nature.

“They are scared of our potential power because they know that if we stand up, we will defeat them.

We are not God any more than Klaus is. But there is a God. And Klaus and his predator class are very due for his attention. Indeed, Haven’t they been asking for it? Haven’t they been calling to him, unceasingly, to “Bring it!” Their pathology is that they don’t want to be judged by God, so they feel uncomfortable at the thought that he might actually be there, and that causes them to go nuts and to do things that, they reason, should call out any actual God of love – if he’s there… because they need to know that he isn’t there!

Excellent observation. The future is frightening. This man, Kevin Corbett, could see the Nazification of the NHS back in April this year.

I think most OG readers will already know about the plans the planners have for us from the Rockefeller document of 2010 which has a scenario called Lock Step, The problem is how to escape from the trap. We are all in it. Using computers linked to the internet is part of the surveillance control system.

For five days in September I did a bike trip of some 300 miles with pannier bags but no phone, no Garmin, and a couple of hundred pounds or so to pay my way. On the first night, because the hotel would not accept cash without a passport or driving licence, I had to use my card to pay for a night’s accommodation. It was the only night I did but it defeated my attempt to remain outside the system.

While the controllers are looking to make it a cashless society and thus control us all, we need to make it a card-free society, if at all possible. These people have too much power and it is quickly looking like it is too late to change that. Self-sufficient communities outside of the mainstream seem to be the way forward. I’m fast thinking of becoming Amish! Or joining the Eden Project. The trouble is once the Master Race has total control of the limp mask-wearers, lock-downers and distancers we will be cannon fodder.
