The Great Reset Coming:

The Great Reset and COVID

When I hear people like Anthony Fauci and James Hansen talk about COVID-19 and climate change, respectively, claiming to be speak for “the science” and calling on everyone to “follow the science,” it sends shivers down my spine. Science should inform our choices, including political choices, but scientists should not dictate our decisions, as Eisenhower noted. No individual scientist, or group of scientists, has a monopoly on the truth. Nor do scientists have special insight into what any particular person or society should value, or what level of risk and types of tradeoffs people should be willing to accept to obtain or preserve those values.

The global elites’ response to the pandemic and climate change is the same: the Great Reset (GR). Those pushing the GR are attempting to impose socialism worldwide, especially on energy production and use.

The GR has been a long time coming. It is the latest manifestation of the Progressive era faith in scientific managers and unaccountable bureaucrats not beholden to democratic election cycles or bound by allegedly outdated laws and the expressed wishes of We the people. It assumes these experts could, if only given free rein, manage the world’s resources more effectively to meet the true needs of the people, so defined by the elites, better than the commoners can do when operating freely in markets and through elections.

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.

"Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of healthy people.” This says it all, shows an agenda to subvert, restrict freedoms, and is unacceptable, IMO!

Time has proven the fiasco with Government's dealing with Covid-19 went beyond their limited powers the people gave them; Therefore the people need take this power away from Government, restructure Government, and use the Freedoms our Constitutional gave us, to oust Traitor's and start over, IMO!

Government obviously is WAY TOO BLOATED & BIG, or American's would not be experiencing all the grieve poured upon us by the deception coming forth, in my opinion! We don't have to buy into hopelessness, God wants us hopeful no matter what, and while even knowing Jesus comes back for us!
