Since the 1970s, the
ski-resort community of Davos, Switzerland, has frequently been a
gathering place for global elites during the month of January.
Hosted by the World
Economic Forum (WEF),
an organization granted special status by the Swiss government,
the Davos conference brings
together an array of selected power-brokers:
governors of central
banks, international financiers, heads-of-state, UN leaders,
CEOs from the largest corporations, and well-placed media

complications, this year's WEF annual meeting was postponed, and has
since been re-scheduled with the hope of gathering in Singapore
later this August.
Nevertheless, the last
week of January 2021 still witnessed a significant WEF event:
a virtual conference
titled the Davos Agenda, which could be live-monitored by anyone
willing to take the time.
What was front-and-center
of this online meeting?
The Great Reset...
Before we go further,
it's important to note that this article only scratches the surface
of what transpired.
And how could it do
The Davos Agenda ran five
days, each being 10-to-12 hours long, and with most time slots
holding multiple and simultaneous panel discussions.
To give you an idea of
the first day -
Monday, January 25 - had a total of 29 individual sessions.
It was information
It also must be stated that not everybody who officially
participated was on the same page as the World Economic Forum.
For example, Benjamin
Netanyahu gave a talk outlining,
how he purposefully
cut through the red tape to secure Covid vaccinations, making
sure his nation had the supplies it needed...
His approach didn't fit
with the WEF consensus of "vaccine solidarity," to act globally
before your national interests...
After all, as another
"the vaccine needs to
be a public good."
The phrase "vaccine
nationalism" was used throughout the week, a disparaging term for
those who sought national health goals above global collaboration.
Another example was Brazil's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ernesto
Araujo, who publicly encouraged the United States to stay the
course as the "superpower of freedom."
Araujo went on to say
that Brazil desired an open economy based on liberty, noting that
this would challenge the global emergence of a rising
"I'm not a great fan
of the concept of the Great Reset," Araujo stated, explaining
that while he generally supported ideas like sustainable
development, there was a problem.
The Great Reset
was missing "freedom and democracy"...
Most others, however,
were either on-board or otherwise playing the game.
President of China, Xi Jinping - introduced by
Klaus Schwab, founder of the
WEF - stressed collaborative action:
We must create a
new and global economic model.
We must "abandon
ideological prejudice and jointly follow a path of peaceful
coexistence," and we must bring "prosperity for all"...
A "shared future
for mankind," he explained, is necessary.
include strengthening global economic governance, committing
to the UN system of world law, and supporting the World
Health Organization (WHO)
as they build "a global community of health for all."
But who will lead the
The rest of his speech focused on how China,
as a "modern
socialist country," is blazing the trail, including the
Belt and Road Initiative, and
the promotion of a "new type of international relations."
His speech wrapped up
with words of solidarity:
"There is only one
Earth and one shared future for humanity.
As we cope with the
current crisis and endeavor to make a better day for everyone,
we need to stand united and work together. We have been shown
time and again that to beggar thy neighbor, to go it alone, and
to slip into arrogant isolation will always fail.
Let us all join hands
and let multilateralism light our way toward a community with a
shared future for mankind."
Klaus responded by
thanking Xi Jinping for,
"such an important
speech, which at this crucial moment in history, provides us
with a truly comprehensive framework for shaping the future."
China was often applauded
Davos Agenda, being admired for its
digital leap forward.
But there were some
concerns, albeit framed through a globalist worldview.
For example, a few hours after the Chinese leader spoke, the UN
Secretary General António Guterres, pointed to the growing
rift between China and the United States, noting that both countries
were dividing the world with their separate agendas.
What was needed, he said,
was "one global
economy with universal respect for international law."

Ursula was clear:

Her speech pointed to

governance - for it's vital that online platforms curb fake news
while affirming democracy - Ursula called for the United States to
join the EU and, together, create a worldwide digital rulebook
"based on our values."
All of the above - like the early pandemic collaboration between the
EU, the WEF and the
Gates Foundation -
"Europe is determined
to contribute to this global common good."
At the end of her
prepared talk, she affirmed to Schwab that new alliances will be
"This is what we will
work for - and I know I can count on you and the World Economic
Forum to help us build it."
Schwab was excited,
afterwards saying that this speech represented the practical
meaning of the Great Reset.
He paraphrased a

this supposed planetary challenge, the world must pursue
a significant reduction in carbon emissions, all the way to net

This requires nothing
less than a complete overhaul of energy production, the
transportation sector, all industry and especially agriculture,
and our personal behavior.
Net-zero isn't an abstract exercise.
New Zealand and
the United Kingdom have already passed legislation binding
them to net-zero by 2050, and similar proposals are on the
table in Canada, South Korea, and the European Union.
Group of Thirty - a high-level consultative body comprised
of the most influential figures in central banking and
international financing, many with WEF connections - is

States, just a few days after Davos, the National Academies
released their decarbonization report - "a technical
blueprint and policy manual" - thus creating a roadmap for
net-zero by mid-century. 
And yes, there
are working links between the Academies and the WEF.
So it was no surprise

Since the early
1970s, Schwab has been an advocate of the stakeholder model.
Back then it was mainly geared to incorporating labor, union,
and government interests in corporate decision-making.
Today, Schwab is
aggressively pushing a grander vision:
service to the planet while supporting social causes...
In a WEF article
released a few days before the Davos Agenda, Schwab wrote,
"The planet is
thus the center of the global economic system, and its
health should be optimized in the decisions made by all

benchmarks, however, your business may be cut off from
licensing, funding sources, supply chains, government contracts,
or marketplace access. Presently, ESG exists as screening
criteria used by some investors, but the WEF agenda extends into
a wider and more permanent realm.

On the last day, US
Senator Gillibrand called for accountability regarding
right-wing news outlets.
More than that, she
stressed the need for oversight of social media platforms,
holding them to account for allowing right-wing messages to
proliferate. She then affirmed these positions by appealing to
her faith; that we need to love one another.
For conservative Christians, the idea of the Great Reset
strikes at something deeper than talking points.

Christ our messiah, or does collective humanity redeem
itself by saving the planet?
It appears we are at
a Romans 1 crossroad, faced with the question of worshiping and
serving the creation, or the Creator.
And thus, the Reset
dangles before us:
public-private partnership that follows the mystic path of
social feelings, the holy writ of consensus politics, and the
prophets of international finance… all watched over, and guided
by, the priests of technology.
It's the operating system
of the collective New Age, an algorithmic-technocratic revolution -
maximum efficiency for managed harmony - and of course, it's all for
the "greater good"...
Maybe the concerns expressed by Brazil's Foreign Minister - the
looming dangers of a rising techno-totalitarianism - are worth
