After the ‘Great Reset’, here’s Klaus Schwab’s troubling new message that risks shaping our lives

By: Rachel Marsden

PARIS — From his perch at the dystopian-titled “World Government Summit” in Dubai at the end of March, World Economic Forum chairman, Klaus Schwab, followed up his repeated calls for a “great reset” and a “fourth industrial revolution” with what he now describes as a “great narrative”. According to the description of his book published earlier this year, “The Great Narrative for a Better Future”, “Vital issues abound: economic, environmental, geopolitical, societal and technological. But solutions do exist and are within our grasp. The Great Narrative proposes some hopeful and inspiring narratives around them.”

Look, no one outside of the Davos club wants narratives — or propaganda — from unelected figures at the helm of global governance institutions, OK? It’s pretty clear by now what the agenda is. That is, to exploit global chaotic events and crisis in order to impose “solutions” that give even more power and control to the same group of profiteers who stand ready to offer the “solutions” for every exacerbated “crisis”. Oh, where would we ever be without these saviors? Before Schwab was promoting the need for solutions to chaos, his organization was presciently holding simulations of them, including pandemics and cyberattacks. Almost like a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Some of the same shadowy figures who rub elbows at Davos have also subsequently been advising governments on their own responses to recent crises. In Canada and France, opposition politicians have demanded answers for the involvement of big global consulting firms in the advising governments — a real concern when one realizes that these firms often serve to re-home former high-level government officials and civil servants, who end up costing citizens far more money in the form of government contracts than they ever did as government employees.

The issue is most markedly dogging French President Emmanuel Macron in the final days of his re-election campaign. It has emerged in a French senate report that billions of euros have been spent for private consulting firms to advise the government on everything from digital transformation to climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic. How utterly coincidental that these happen to be the very same issues on heavy rotation at the World Economic Forum. Worse, there’s an inherent lack of public accountability due to the fact that details of such private contracts would fall under nondisclosure confidentiality agreements and therefore be difficult for public inquiries to access. The average citizen therefore remains in the dark over exactly how much influence these unelected, unaccountable entities serving various masters and clients have had on recent policymaking.

It’s worrisome that, for example, there’s nothing prohibiting a big consulting firm from having tech companies, drug companies, and governments as clients all at the same time. Now, imagine what kind of advice regarding the necessity of imposing certain drugs or vaccinations, coupled with a digital ID rooted in big tech, as a “solution” to a coronavirus — all with the insistence that an entire system be built and kept in place for future use beyond the duration of the illness itself.

If such things tend to incite conspiracy theories, it’s no wonder. It’s amazing how quickly conspiratorial doubt can be erased with a little transparency. And the fact that little to none is ever forthcoming regarding these truly global and well-organized arrangements only serves to perpetuate the worst assumptions.

The fact that Schwab has now moved on to peddling a “narrative” to support his “great reset” suggests a troublesome need to control how people think. And there’s no better way to that than to dismiss anything that falls outside of “acceptable” thinking — as defined by these same elites — as misinformation, disinformation, or propaganda, and to use technology as a means of controlling and quashing genuine and legitimate dissent and contradictory debate. This isn’t some potential future scenario — it’s already the case. For example, any content that does not strictly adhere to the official World Health Organization’s doctrine regarding the COVID-19 pandemic is removed from YouTube. Twitter and Facebook have also engaged in information control in response to government requests.

And it’s set to get worse. Melanie Joly, the Canadian foreign affairs minister and member of the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders’ class of 2016, has proposed a new law, C-11, to further press online platforms to crack down on dissent — this time with the effect of limiting debate about the conflict in Ukraine. “Social media companies need to do more to prevent propaganda, and to counter any form of disinformation,” Joly said, according to the National Post.

Since when is it the foreign affairs’ minister’s job to act as a censor for internal debate? It isn’t. These people are overreaching. And they’re losing their minds while doing it, tossing out all western principles of free speech and freedom. First it was climate change hysteria, then anti-Trump hysteria, then COVID-related hyperventilation, and now psychosis over anything Russian-related. And sometimes, there’s even conflation of one or more of these issues. EU Commissioner, Margrethe Vestager, advised Europeans recently to limit their hot water to prevent Russian energy consumption. “Every time you turn off the water, say: take that, Putin!” Vestager said.

Schwab’s new slogan is blatantly honest about the deliberate intent to install groupthink. Will enough of us realize it and fight to defeat it before the straitjacket is firmly in place?
