The great reset. What is it, and what does it mean?
There is a thought that is catching fire worldwide and is fueled by the World Economic Forum. What is the World Economic forum, you might ask? I know I did?
The World Economic Forum is an international organization for public-private cooperation. The Forum engages the foremost political, business, cultural, and other society leaders to shape global, regional, and industry agendas.
According to their website, they claim to want moral and intellectual integrity at the heart of everything it does. The claim that the forum believes in stakeholders, in that every corporation is responsible for every part of society. The institution carefully blends and balances the best of many organizations, from both the public and private sectors, international organizations, and academic institutions.
They believe that people from all over the globe from all different backgrounds can work together to build something new. In other words, they are striving to achieve a society in which the entire world is connected to achieve specific goals. They have several areas in which they want to accomplish this.
The great reset centers around the idea that COVID-19 has decimated our planet not just with the number of deaths but with economic ramifications that are still affecting every corner of our planet. The damage inflicted has been horrific in terms of lives taken and livelihoods lost. However, it also presents an opportunity to rebuild more inclusively and responsibly. Coronavirus-related lockdowns provided a glimpse of what is possible in terms of limiting pollution, and the pandemic’s human toll illustrated what can happen when healthcare systems and social safety nets are neglected. Leaders in the private and public sectors should seize the moment and help create a more equitable and sustainable society.
The main areas that the great reset would encompass all fall in one of these categories.
The fourth industrial revolution, technology. As the global economy rapidly digitalizes, an estimated 70% of the new value created over the next decade will be based on digitally enabled platform business models. However, nearly half of the world’s population remains unconnected to the internet. With advancements of technology also comes a responsibility to ensure that it is used responsibly.
Other areas of technology that are involved in the great reset are artificial intelligence, drones, quantum computing, vaccination future of computing, the digital transformation of business, internet governance, future of media, entertainment and culture, digital economy, 5G, and blockchain digital identity.
Strengthening regional development. The COVID-19 crisis could reverse global human development, measured in terms of education, health, and living standards, for the first time since 1990, according to the United Nations.
Revitalizing global cooperation. Many experts believe the best way countries can ensure access to essential products in the future is to help build a strong international cooperation network. In a joint statement issued in April 2020, the World Trade Organization and the International Monetary Fund noted that a 2008 commitment to refraining from new trade and investment restrictions helped alleviate the financial crisis and hasten a recovery – and said a similarly bold step is needed now.
Developing Sustainable Business Models. In many parts of the world, the crisis magnified current business models and supply chains’ potential shortcomings. In terms of food, COVID-19 and its secondary effects exposed many people to added deprivation.
Shaping the global economic recovery. Multilateral cooperation will be necessary for a healthy global recovery. Once again, the focus on green energy jobs and new types of climate change jobs are highlighted.
And of course, there is climate change. Every aspect of the great reset includes something to do with climate change. In short, many of the things discussed in the Green New Deal. Everything from technology, housing, job creation, workforce creation, and global economic recovery helps save the planet.
It was clear early on in the process of lockdowns due to COVID-19, the planet was quick to show signs of recovery and that even small changes in human behavior resulted in a tangible effect in nature. “None of us is safe unless we are all safe.” The main talking point of the Great Reset architects who see the path forward as rebuilding the global economy in a fairer, greener way as we come out of the coronavirus pandemic will also require societies to battle and beat racism.
“The COVID-19 crisis has shown us that our old systems are not fit anymore for the 21st century,” Schwab said in his opening statement. “It has laid bare the fundamental lack of social cohesion, fairness, inclusion, and equality.”
We could try to go back to the world we had before the pandemic, he said, but that risked “the amplification of many of the trends we see today: polarisation, nationalism, racism and ultimately social unrest and conflicts.”
Juliana Rotich, Venture Partner at Atlantica Ventures in Nairobi, said we were at an inflection point.
“There’s an opportunity to center the reset on those who are most vulnerable, those on the edge where it only takes something like a pandemic to slide into poverty.”
Microsoft President Brad Smith directly references the racial conflict in his own country and how the Great Reset could be part of the solution.
“Data, and technology more broadly, are indispensable tools to solving almost any of the problems that we confront,” he said.
“And so when it comes to protecting people’s fundamental rights, as we are seeing in the United States today, we have been focused for several years on using data to shine a light on disparities, for example, between the practices of police on African-Americans and blacks in the United States in comparison with other populations – that is a slice of what we’ll need to address around the world.”
In a passionate address, Kristalina Georgieva, the head of the International Monetary Fund, said the Great Reset would result in a “greener, smarter, fairer world.”
“We know this pandemic, if left to its own devices, will deepen inequality,” she said.
“But if we were to concentrate in investing in people, in the social fabric of our societies, in access to opportunities and education for all, in expansion of social programmes, then we can have a world that is a better world for all.”
Is this a new world order, or is this a truly better way to live? Will we see the type of global coordination and inclusiveness on every square inch of our planet in our lifetime, or is this just a dream floated by some who wrap their hidden agenda in a pretty bow to get others on board?
Many are extremely alarmed at what they see when it comes to the Great Reset, as they should be. This is globalism being pushed with the hype of a virus that has caused every nation to bow to lockdowns, mandates, travel restrictions, and newly emerging mandates for everyone, regardless of religious beliefs, to be administered the vaccination.
Some nations have taken the steps needed to participate in the great reset, and there are many more nations that are making plans to do just that. Some believe that the United States election that just took place was more about ensuring that the Great Reset can occur in America than it was an act of democracy. The loss of President Trump will push the global agenda forward in America.
In an open letter to President Trump, the Former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States of America, Carlo Maria Viganò, lays out his beliefs on the Great Reset and the people behind the idea. He implores President Trump to help prevent the Great Reset from taking place in America. He writes,
“A global plan called the Great Reset is underway. Its architect is a global élite that wants to subdue all of humanity, imposing coercive measures with which to drastically limit individual freedoms and those of entire populations. In several nations this plan has already been approved and financed; in others, it is still in an early stage. Behind the world leaders who are the accomplices and executors of this infernal project, there are unscrupulous characters who finance the World Economic Forum and Event 201, promoting their agenda.”
Never before has globalism been as much of a threat as it is today. Not only is it an idea, but now it is also planned out in detail and is being set into motion by very well funded forces and Nations. The end of democracy may very well be the Great Reset.
