The wicked watches the righteous, And seeks to slay him.Psalm 37:32-33
The Lord will not leave him in his hand, Nor condemn him when he is judged.
Paying attention to Rome events last winter as I continued researching various avenues distressing faithful Catholics, I stumbled into awareness of the severity of the emerging Wuhan Virus because it hit Italy first, and I began following the story there closely. Covid hit directly in the region where workers traveled back and forth to China constantly due to China invading Italy’s textile factories earlier in this decade. (Story HERE) Because Pope Francis, if not personally but by sending Vatican officials, is deeply involved with many of the nefarious characters weaving in and out of all stories leading to China, New Age, Marxist, globalist agendas, I find it like an intricate spider’s web, many threads are woven with one purpose. None leading to free nations and godly leadership.
So, I looked over whistleblowing materials concerning a meeting held the year before Covid suggesting what might come from such a worldwide outbreak – a pandemic. Another meeting held in Switzerland early in 2020 concerning using COVID as an opportunity for the Great Reset came from people with the same mindset.
I believe this is a timely piece and an important read. It was posted earlier this evening by Michael Rectenwald at MISES WIRE. Don’t let the tremendous upset with current American politics keep you from looking into the great set up taking place worldwide. This phase has a dire end game for all of us. We’ll get more details in the second article.
What Is the Great Reset? Part I: Reduced Expectations and Bio-techno-feudalism
The Great Reset is on everyone’s mind, whether everyone knows it or not. It is presaged by the measures undertaken by states across the world in response to the covid-19 crisis. (I mean by “crisis” not the so-called pandemic itself, but the responses to a novel virus called SARS-2 and the impact of the responses on social and economic conditions.)
In his book, COVID-19: The Great Reset, World Economic Forum (WEF) founder and executive chairman Klaus Schwab writes that the covid-19 crisis should be regarded as an “opportunity [that can be] seized to make the kind of institutional changes and policy choices that will put economies on the path toward a fairer, greener future.”1 Although Schwab has been promoting the Great Reset for years, the covid crisis has provided a pretext for finally enacting it. According to Schwab, we should not expect the postcovid world system to return to its previous modes of operation. Rather, alternating between description and prescription, Schwab suggests that changes will be, or should be, enacted across interlocking, interdependent domains to produce a new normal.
So, just what is the Great Reset and what is the new normal it would establish?
The Great Reset means reduced incomes and carbon use. But Schwab and the WEF also define the Great Reset in terms of the convergence of economic, monetary, technological, medical, genomic, environmental, military, and governance systems. The Great Reset would involve vast transformations in each of these domains, changes which, according to Schwab, will not only alter our world but also lead us to “question what it means to be human.”2
In terms of economics and monetary policy, the Great Reset would involve a consolidation of wealth, on the one hand, and the likely issuance of universal basic income (UBI) on the other.3 It might include a shift to a digital currency,4 including a consolidated centralization of banking and bank accounts, immediate real-time taxation, negative interest rates, and centralized surveillance and control over spending and debt.
That being said, “the Great Reset” is but a coordinated propaganda campaign shrouded under a cloak of inevitability. Rather than a mere conspiracy theory, as the New York Times has suggested,9 the Great Reset is an attempt at a conspiracy, or the “wishful thinking”10 of socioeconomic planners to have corporate “stakeholders”11 and governments adopt the desiderata of the WEF.
In order to sell this package, the WEF mobilizes the warmed-over rhetoric of “economic equality,” “fairness,” “inclusion,” and “a shared destiny,” among other euphemisms.12 Together, such phrases represent the collectivist, socialist political and ideological component of the envisioned corporate socialism13 (since economic socialism can never be enacted, it is always only political and ideological).
I’ll examine the prospects for the Great Reset in future installments. But suffice it to say for now that the WEF envisions a bio-techno-feudalist global order, with socioeconomic planners and corporate “stakeholders” at the helm and the greater part of humanity in their thrall. The mass of humanity, the planners would have it, will live under an economic stasis of reduced expectations, with individual autonomy greatly curtailed if not utterly obliterated. As Mises suggested, such planners are authoritarians who mean to supplant the plans of individual actors with their own, centralized plans. If enacted, such plans would fail, but their adoption would nevertheless exact a price.

The law of his God is in his heart; None of his steps shall slide.
