Warned About the 'Great Reset' and 'Technocrat Tyranny'
Do you know anything about
the Great Reset?
You should, if for
no other reason than because I wrote a
major piece on it just a few days ago.
In it, I talked
how the radical
elites, the globalists, the UN, the IMF, and the World Economic
Forum (WEF), to name just a few,
working overtime to radically remake life as we know it, and set up
their coercive socialist green utopia.

significant movement when Time devoted a 2019 "Special
Davos Issue" to this, featuring the likes of,

contributors and ideas in the 23 articles featured there.
We have all the
usual globalists and elites telling us we need to radically
rethink the nation-state, the free market, and individual
freedoms in order to bring about this Brave New World.
It really is
The star of the

Klaus Schwab (1938- ), someone I
mentioned in my earlier piece.
Founder of the European Management Forum (1971), which became
the WEF in 1987, is a radical transhumanist whose ideas are
as kooky - and dangerous - as they come.
Earlier this year
he and Thierry Malleret wrote the book Covid-19 - The Great Reset, a techno-totalitarian manifesto.

four years ago:

makes perfect sense for us in this city.

to transportation, accommodation, food and all the things we
need in our daily lives.
One by one all
these things became free, so it ended up not making sense for us
to own much.
As to Schwab and

are grotesque. He speaks often about the "Fourth Industrial
Revolution," a blend of 'digital-and-analog life.'
This means a mix of
humans and artificial intelligence, an emphasis on nanotechnology
and eugenics, and a rewriting of what it means to be human...
Or as Schwab put
fourth industrial revolution will lead to is a fusion of our
physical, digital and biological identity".
report on all this puts it:
In the book,
Schwab explains with excitement how upcoming technology will
allow authorities to,

thoughts and influencing our behavior."
He goes on to
predict that this will provide an incentive for law enforcement
to implement Minority Report-style pre-crime programs.

enforcement agencies and courts to use techniques to

As Barry Chowka
put it some months ago discussing corona and the rise of statism:
We are being

(D-NY) and her fellow
Green New Deal fanatics have demanded:
almost total end to air travel
personal automobile travel down to a trickle
promises of free health care for all quickly becoming

They both described
in gory detail what such dystopian futures might look like.
English writer during this same period who also discussed these
matters was C.S. Lewis. In a number of books and articles he
warned about where we were heading, as new technologies, coupled
with increased statism, spelt "the abolition of man".
And that was the
title of his 1947 book:
The Abolition of Man.
In it, he said
"What we call
Man's power over Nature turns out to be power exercised by some
men over other men with Nature as its instrument."

new power won by man is a power over man as well."
And of course, his
third volume in his space trilogy was all about rogue science and
unethical technocrats. That Hideous Strength (1946) was a
clear warning about coming coercive dystopias.

And another gives
us the bigger picture of this war on humanity:
sciences, good and innocent in themselves, had already… begun to
be warped, had been subtly manoeuvred in a certain direction.
objective truth had been increasingly insinuated into the
scientists; indifference to it, and a concentration upon mere
power, had been the result…
experiences of the dissecting room and the pathological
laboratory were breeding a conviction that the stifling of all
deep-set repugnances was the first essential for progress.
