The “Great Reset” is the theme of next year’s World Economic Forum summit in Davos, Switzerland. A small cluster of people in Europe will decide that the entire world must be “reset” in 2021.
Reset or Crackdown?
But what does the Great Reset mean?
The World Economic Forum explains:
“‘The Great Reset’ is a commitment to jointly and urgently build the foundations of our economic and social system for a more fair, sustainable, and resilient future.”
“It requires a new social contract centered on human dignity, social justice, and where societal progress does not fall behind economic development.”
“The global health crisis has laid bare longstanding rupture in our economies and societies, and created a social crisis that urgently requires decent, meaningful jobs.”
There’s much more to this “reset” than green fuel opportunities and sustainability. Proclamations from Prince Charles and other elite world leaders talk about changing the entire world all at once.
Per His Royal Highness, Prince Charles:
“We need to evolve our economic model and put the planet and people at the heart of global value creation. … to put nature at the heart of how we operate. We simply can’t waste any more time.”
Is the World Economic Forum proposing that the United States turn its economy over to the United Nations to turn it into a green economy overnight?
Reset US Social and Economic Foundations?
But why do we need to “build the foundations of our economic and social systems.” We’ve already done that.
The US Constitution is the foundation of our economic and social system. It outperforms the rest of the world in social and economic networks for centuries. Private property, the rule of law, capitalism, and individual rights are the values and privileges of a free people.
The world—and the would-be titans of Davos—would do well to emulate those aspects, not trash them.
But, according to Klaus Schwab, founder and chief executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, we Americans should not have a say in the matter.
For our edification, Schwab explained:
“We only have one planet, and we know that climate change could be the next global disaster with even more dramatic consequences for humankind. We have to decarbonize the economy in the short window, still remaining and bring our thinking and behavior once more into harmony with nature.”
The entire world must do as this Klaus character says, or it is doomed?
Isn’t that what Vice President Al Gore said 20 years ago, as he made millions on green-tech investments?
China Is the Problem, Not the US or UK
Is the world’s biggest problem the “unregulated capitalism” of the United States and the UK, or is it the potential threat of climate change?
Schwab asserts that the Corona virus hit both countries “hard.”
The United States is the most vibrant and innovative economy in the world. At the same time, the UK is the sixth-richest nation in the world.
Besides, the pandemic was willfully caused and spread throughout the world by the Chinese Communist Party. Schwab is misplacing the blame.
He should be condemning the communists in Beijing for what they’ve done to the world, not countries that have been victimized by it.
Germany also blames China. So does Italy, the UK, Japan, the United States, and many other nations.
Why does Schwab think he has the authority to dictate how the US economy is arranged or rearranged?
Schwab should remember that every time a European tried to tell the rest of the world what to do, it ended up very badly.
Decarbonize Now—Or Else
And just how soon must we “decarbonize” the planet by cutting carbon dioxide from our energy sources?
According to the Prince of Wales, there’s no time to waste. But for the United States to decarbonize would take until 2050 to do so and cost jobs in the process.
Most disturbing about these dictates from the World Economic Forum organizers is that they expect the United States to follow their orders.
The Great Reset will be a Great Disaster for America. Yet our liberal Democrats and Republicans fall all over themselves to jump on the One World bandwagon!
