"Whether it be in the name of Agenda 2030 etc.
it would amount to largely the same outcome
- the subjugation once and for all of national sovereignty
where the nation-state is subordinate to global governance."
Shortly after the World Economic Forum launched their 'Great Reset' initiative, a new book titled, 'Covid-19: The Great Reset', authored by senior executives Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret ensued.
As touched upon in my last article, there are 5 planks to the Great Reset - economic, societal, geopolitical, environmental and technological - all of which the book covers in detail. But I want to focus largely on the conclusion, as it is here where the author's motivations and rationale for championing a Great Reset, in the wake of Covid-19, become clearer.
Schwab and Malleret characterize the future direction of the world as 'The Post Pandemic Era', a phrase that is repeated ad nauseam throughout. Rather than define it to a particular outcome, the authors opt instead to ask whether this new era will be marked by more or less cooperation between nations. Will countries turn inward resulting in the growth of nationalism and protectionism, or will they sacrifice their own interests for greater interdependence? ...
🔴 NO RETURN TO NORMALITY
One thing the authors do write on from a position of clarity is that never can the world return to normal. Or more to the point, be allowed to return to normal. Their view is that before Covid-19 took hold, a 'broken sense of normalcy prevailed'. The situation now is that the virus 'marks a fundamental inflection point in our global trajectory.' In a very short space of time it 'magnified the fault lines that beset our economies and societies'.
If it was not already obvious, then the authors confirm over the last few pages of the book that the United Nations' Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development program is intertwined with the Great Reset. This is evident when studying the WEF's Strategic Intelligence unit. Sustainable Development and the Great Reset go hand in hand.
For Agenda 2030 to be implemented successfully, Schwab and Malleret offer an alternative to the possibility of countries failing to come together. As you might expect, it revolves around collaboration and cooperation. In their eyes, no progress can otherwise be made. Covid-19 offers the opportunity to 'embed greater societal equality and sustainability into the recovery'. And, crucially, this would 'accelerate rather than delay progress towards 2030 Sustainable Development Goals'.
But it does not end simply with the full implementation of Agenda 2030. Schwab and Malleret want to go further. Their aim is that the open exposure of weaknesses within existing global infrastructure 'may compel us to act faster by replacing failed institutions, processes, and rules with new ones that are better suited to current and future needs.'
To convey the importance of this statement, the authors state that this alone is 'the essence of the Great Reset'. What they appear to be seeking is global transformation where systems & the age of the algorithm take precedent over political institutions. We are already beginning to see moves by major global institutions like the Trilateral Commission, the World Trade Organisation and the European Union to 'reform' & 'rejuvenate' both their work & membership. Covid-19 has undoubtedly straightened the hand of global planners and their quest for reformation.
As 'Covid-19: The Great Reset' was published, it was accompanied by an article written by Schwab and Malleret. Called, 'COVID-19's legacy: This is how to get the Great Reset right', they stated plainly that not only will a lot of things change forever, 'the worst of the pandemic is yet to come':
We will be dealing with its fallout for years, and many things will change forever. It has wrought (and will continue to do so) economic disruption of monumental proportions.
Indeed, no industry or business will be able to avoid the impact of the changes ahead. Either they adapt to fit in with the Great Reset agenda (assuming they have the resources to do so), or they will not survive. According to Schwab & Malleret, 'millions of companies risk disappearing', whilst only 'a few' e.g. corporate monoliths, will be strong enough to withstand the disruption. It is your smaller companies and independent run businesses that are faced with ruin, opening the door to a new era of mergers and acquisitions that will further erode consumer choice & competition.
