The government response to the pandemic was a test case in the effort to impose the GR whole cloth. The elites tested how much freedom they could seize before people began to push back. Instead of tracing the virus and isolating those with COVID-19, as had been done to great effect during past pandemics, the government locked down people who weren’t sick “for the good of all.” As one anti-lockdown activist told Fox News, “Quarantine is when you restrict movement of sick people. Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of healthy people.”
If the GR comes to pass, it will be too late for people to do anything about it. Any resistance will be castigated by sheeple on social media and in the mainstream media. Social media will shut down the accounts of any who object and silence their voices.
After the GR, “resistance will be futile,” to paraphrase Star Trek’s Borg.
Politicians, bureaucrats, politically connected profiteers and crony capitalists, Luddites, and activist scientists (those wedded more to leftist political causes or their own funding interests than to the scientific method) have repeatedly said climate change “poses an existential threat to human existence,” “threatens the collapse of civilization,” “will be catastrophic for human life,” and other hyperbole. The GR is their answer to this so-called threat. Only if we give elites all the levers of power, unfettered by inconvenient elections and unhampered by scientific investigations or reflective thought, can we save the Earth from 2 degrees of warming, which they claim will bring untold death and disaster.
The much-hyped Green New Deal, Biden’s extravagantly wasteful “Build Back Better” plan, and the Democrats’ grotesque $3.5 trillion budget bill are domestic down payments on the global GR.
The Great Reset is an awful idea if for no other reason than that benign, selfless philosopher-kings are and have always been few and far between, if they have ever existed at all outside of fairy tales and philosophical tomes.
The Great Reset is just socialism by another name. History repeatedly shows allowing elites to have unfettered power, as socialism does, serves only the interests of the powerful and politically connected. We already have enough of that in this world.
