Have you ever noticed that even though disasters and catastrophes are occurring all over the place some people always seem to come out ahead? Some may be lucky. Others grab the opportunity to benefit from everyone else’s bad fortune. Some may even plan it.
The pandemic has given some people a great opportunity as they see it. What is that great opportunity? The chance for every country to participate in the Great Reset. This is a plan to “reset” the entire global economy.
The original justification for the Great Reset was the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the supporters of this economic overhaul have consistently stated that Climate Change was the long-term justification for a transformation of society.
In June 2020, the World Economic Forum held a virtual meeting which was attended by powerful business leaders, government official and activists. Klaus Schwab is the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum. He was joined by Britain’s Prince Charles, Gina Gopinath, chief economist at the International Monetary Fund, Antonio Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations and CEOs and presidents of major international corporations such as Microsoft. Groups such as Greenpeace International also attended.
“The threat of climate change has been more gradual (than COVID-19) but its devastating reality for many people and their livelihoods around the world and its ever greater potential to disrupt, surpasses even that of Covid-19,” Prince Charles said. Supporters of a global economic overhaul have always said that doing nothing would pose an “existential threat” to the human race. This argument is constantly made without solid scientific evidence to back up the claim.
The heart of the Great Reset is something called environmental, social and governance metrics. These are designated as ESG metrics. These metrics provide policy leaders, economists, investors and banks a totally new way of evaluating businesses. These are the ways of evaluating a business.
Companies are then given a score to evaluate how well they align with ESG goals.
Hundreds of large world corporations have created ESG systems and reporting metrics. Investor groups worth trillions of dollars have pledged to prioritize these companies over those that refuse to participate.
Essential elements of the Great Reset plan to change the world are ESG systems, sustainable investment and requiring the world to adopt “green” energy sources. As a note: wind and solar energy are not even remotely environmentally friendly.
Much of the Great Reset is still in the planning stage but the financial component has already been rolled out. This is evident in the fact that so many financial institutions have committed to virtually all businesses in America adopting renewable energy. This means that in the future, if you want a loan from Bank of America, you had better agree with the globalist line on climate change. The Wells Fargo CEO has made a comparable announcement as has Citi, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and JPMorgan Chase.
If banks can decide whether or not to finance any group based on ideological consideration, then banks and the Great Reset allies will have close to new-total control over society, especially if lending decisions are tied to a huge ESG system.
A note about Donald Trump. In January 2021, the Trump-era Office of the Comptroller of the Currency issued a finalized Fair Access to Financial Services regulation that would have made it illegal for large banks to engage in the sort of policies described above. However, one week after entering the White House, President Biden “paused” the rule’s implementation, signaling his plan to eliminate the rule before it could even be published in the Federal Register. No Surprise! John Kerry, Climate Czar extraordinaire and Joe Biden support the Great Reset.
Major changes in society such as that envisioned by the World Economic Forum require people on the ground working to effect the change. Enter the Global Shapers Community. This group is made up of youth activists located in over 400 cities across the globe.
The Global Shapers Community is a network of inspiring young people under the age of 30 working together to address local, regional and global challenges. With over 7,000 members, the Global Shapers Community covers 410 city-based hubs in 190 countries.
The Global Shapers program was involved in the “climate strikes” of 2019. More than 1,300 members have been trained by the Climate Reality Project which is the highly influential and well-funded climate activist organization run by former Vice President Al Gore. Mr. Gore serves on the World Economic Forum Board of Trustees.
It is important to remember that all of these “leaders” who are pushing the Great Reset and all of the hoped for changes in our treatment of the climate will never suffer from any of these proposals that are supposed to save the planet. They will always have the best transportation, safe homes and security whether provided by the government or paid for out of their very healthy portfolios. Increased costs in energy will hardly be noticed.
Citizens must become active in their schools, local governments and elections so that the goals of the people who want to run the world are not met. The current crony capitalist system has many weaknesses but granting power to people who want to reset the world’s economy and control everything we do would be a disaster. Our freedom would be completely gone.
