The «pandemic» killed 255 million jobs, according to the ILO, and would kill another 90 million in 2021, reports Bloomberg lying since, although the virus can end up killing, job losses are due to the prohibitions imposed by governments. Thus, according to an Edelman survey, only 53% of respondents in 22 countries trust traditional media.
Oxfam is also lying when it says that “since the outbreak of the virus, the rich are richer and the poor poorer”. It was not the virus but the literal prohibition of the States to circulate and work, and it is outrageous that they are exonerated because, immediately afterwards, more state intervention is required, which will exacerbate the tragedy.
Now, as the blame would be on the «pandemic» and not on the governments that, on the contrary, would have avoided worse consequences, the «Great Reset» would be necessary to «adapt» -force, violate- the humanity to the “new reality” of “pandemics”.
It is unusual that an organization -although private- whose main source of funding is governments, or associated multinational companies, and which always summons the first line of politicians such as it is the World Economic Forum (WEF), can believe itself to be a «pro market».
Michael Rectenwald says that the man of the “Great Reboot” is Klaus Schwab, the founder of the WEF, who (“Now is the time for a ‘great reset’”) explains that “Each country – read government – must participate … we need a ‘Great reboot’ of capitalism”. And he suggests that changes should be made, to bring about a «new normal», in terms of the convergence of economic, monetary, technological, medical, genomic, environmental, and military systems, until «questioning what it means to be human.»
Always with the supra direction of the State: a digital currency, included in a consolidated centralization of banking, real-time taxes, negative interest rates, the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” or transhumanism, which includes the expansion of genomics, nanotechnology and robotics and its penetration into the human body and brain.
Obviously, «the Great Reset» is propaganda that will never materialize simply because it goes against, precisely, normality, human nature, personal freedom. And, regardless of whether the Covid is so serious or not, while the State destroys jobs, private initiative has shown that it can solve any epidemic effectively.
Ideologues have always misled into believing that the market is supra organizations, instead of what it really is: ordinary people, such as the neighborhood shoemaker or mechanic, working in peace -with the absence of state coercion or whoever comes from- and in freedom.
It is unusual, on the other hand, that a (multi) state bank, an appendage of the State, such as the IMF, is considered a “pro-market” when it usually promotes, for example, the reduction of fiscal deficits, but, to a large extent, to the cost of raising taxes, that is, that the common citizen – the market – finances them.
Far from being a “pro-market”, the WEF proposes that the States force a change of the normal citizen, while the IMF finances failed governments that, precisely, because they are unviable, do not get private financing, allowing them to continue instead of reconverting.
