I'm asking here, because I don't know where else to turn. Why's no 1 frm MSM nor polititan addr. 'The Great reset"? It's all in the open yet ttlly silenced. I find it quite scary after reading Dr Schwabs books and watching endless videos from IMF and WEF. They're sayn "The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world" where "you will own nothing but be happy." When I try to talk with people about it they all say I'm a conspirator. Should I worry? Any1?I'm all alone with this and it scares the living s**t out of me

Where am I?

"The Great Reset" proposed by the "World Economic Forum" a non-government organization based in Switzerland and created by Klaus Schwab at the Davos summit has ruffled quite a few feathers. Many people rightfully do not trust our current system and those who have been in power. So, it is without surprise that during the covid-19 crisis "big changes" would be proposed. The overall agenda is to steer away from pure global capitalism and towards various new "stakeholder" values. Values such as economic equality, environmental preservation and improved healthcare are some of the ideas addressed.

As far as, is this a nefarious conspiracy? I would say any change is difficult. It will be difficult to trust our leaders again, our economic system again and even our neighbors again. But the only true constant is change. The book the "4th Turning", Ray Dalio's discussion on the ending of long term debt cycles and Richard Werner's "Princes of the Yen" explanation of central bank's priorities would greatly help clarify some, but not all of the conditions that we are currently living through.

We are no doubt seeing great change, but marry those expectations with the understanding that there are a lot of people in the world who were greatly benefiting from the way things were pre-covid. These rather wealthy people control many of the capitalistic levers that brought us to this point in the first place. So, in my opinion the new and the old are mostly balanced and disruption is difficult to accomplish.

So, whether either is good news is to be determined, but I am more worried about things not changing.

Lastly, should you "worry"?  I having a young 18 year old son, so I personally worry about a possible "war" with China over Taiwan within the next decade, BUT temper that concern with the understanding that there is only so much that we as individuals can control. 

As you get older, you come to realize each and every day a little more, that this gift of life we have all been given is short lived. As abrupt and unfeeling as it may seem, we all die. Therefore, does "worry" change much other than destroy the precious time we have to enjoy life today?

I would say, "Do not worry, calmly plan..."

I share your worry. I'm in the process of reading "The Great Reset" right now. What stands out in my opinion and the main source of my worry is that although "changing" for the greater good, for the planet, for ecological reasons, for economic reasons... as the book advertises, can at first seem like a good thing, this change is being put forward by the same elite which put us in this great big mess in the first place. Let us remember that the WTO and globalisation was coined by the same global elite which is behind this Great Reset today. More specifically, there is one aspect of our societies which is loosing more ground everyday and which rarely gets any attention: democracy. To quickly define it, it is the power of the people, by the people and for the people. No democracy exists in the world today but oligarchies where power is concentrated in a few hands. Laws limiting and overseeing the exercise of power are not decided by the general population, so those in power are making their own.

Concerning the book, The Great Reset, there is no place for democracy, for the power of the people. The same elite is kindly offering solutions to the problems it created and we're asked to accept them gratefully and without question. That's what I find chilling in this thesis. Of course there's much to say about the issues at stake, ecology, the financial system etc... But clearly we're moving closer to Orwel's worst nightmare everyday and it's as urgent to act on making society more demcratic as it is to protect say, the environment.
