If We Allow This, We are Over

“As long as not everybody is vaccinated, nobody will be safe.” —Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum

I don’t like to use the word evil because of its theological implications, but I think in the case of Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum (WEF) it applies and must be admitted. Moreover, as you will see, the religious analog is unavoidable. Who is Klaus Schwab? Schwab is the leader of the hive-mind behind the so-called Party of Davos (the WEF holds an annual summit at Davos in Switzerland), the brain trust of the nascent New World Order (NWO). The WEF was established in 1971 and has become the hub of world planning by the transnational elite and its functionaries.

You may have wondered what’s with the slogans “Build Back Better” and the “Great Reset” and obsession with the date 2030? US president Joe Biden utters the slogans. Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau utters them. UK prime minister Boris Johnson. Etcetera. Rightwing podcaster Steve Bannon is fond of saying that there are no conspiracies, but there are no coincidences. Well, there are conspiracies. But the Great Reset is not one of them. Conspiracies are secret by definition—at least until they are exposed, and then they were secret. The agenda of the WEF, the origin of these slogans, has never operated in secret. Biden, Trudeau, and Johnson repeat the buzz words and push the designs in public. The leaders of the English-speaking world leaders repeat the slogans because they constitute the established political arm of the transnational project to reorder the world.

Schwab coauthored a book in the summer of 2020 carrying the title COVID-19: The Great Reset. The thesis of the book is that the virus, likely an escaped pathogen, the product of gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China, provides an opportunity to reorder the world along the lines Schwab and crowd desire. That same summer Schwab published an essay on the WEF website titled “Now is the Time for a ‘Great Reset’” wherein he argued that the world must “act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies.” This he calls the “Great Reset’ of capitalism.” 

Why is the COVID-19 pandemic the opportunity to carry out the radical transformation of everything? Schwab writes in that essay that “one silver lining of the pandemic is that it has shown how quickly we can make radical changes to our lifestyles. Almost instantly, the crisis forced businesses and individuals to abandon practices long claimed to be essential, from frequent air travel to working in an office.” As if we were not forced to abandon these practices but rather saw the pandemic as an opportunity to do what we had long longed for: locking ourselves in our homes and cutting ourselves off from our friends and livelihoods and subjecting our children to forced isolation at a critical period in their development as humans.

When elites like Schwab use the word “we,” they do not mean us, you and me. In a now deleted web page, fortunately preserved in the form of a sponsored article in Forbes, authored by Ida Auken, member of the Danish Folketing, the WEF voiced the supposed desire of working people across the planet with an announcement from an ordinary appearing citizen: “Welcome to 2030. I own nothing, have no privacy, and life has never been better.” In 2030, everything will be a service and every ordinary person will be a subscriber, their use of services subject to their terms. “In our city we don’t pay any rent, because someone else is using our free space whenever we do not need it. My living room is used for business meetings when I am not there.” So business will continue even if you no longer have the privacy of your own living room. With this article, those who put those words in that ordinary person’s mouth are announcing their desire to own everything and enjoy exclusive privacy from the hungry eyes of the masses whose lives will be lived openly and never more unfree. 

One may be inclined to believe that this is just the same old machinations of the capitalist class. But what is described in “Welcome to 2030” does not resemble capitalism. It doesn’t sound like socialism, either. Schwab tells us it’s neither (sometimes dropping the construct “stakeholder capitalism”). He writes, “We must build entirely new foundations for our economic and social systems.” Based on the ideas expressed, those new foundations appear more as reclamation of the structures of Europe before capitalism, but on a different technological foundation, some sort of global neofeudalism. This is what is meant by the “new normal.” We are not going to get our old lives back (I don’t mean the lives of the ancient feudal past, but the lives we lived only a few years ago). The reason why is the COVID-19 pandemic, which can only mean that COVID-19 is a pretext for transforming the world to align with Schwab’s vision.

Now, I am not saying that COVID-19 was created in a lab and unleashed on the world with this purpose in mind (although that possibility cannot be ruled out). What I am saying is, just as the Islamist attack on New York City and Washington DC was used as a pretext for a vast expansion of the National Security State, which became normalized within a few short years, SARS-CoV-2 is being exploited to radically transform global culture, economics, and politics. In both cases, the plans and the technology were largely already developed and awaiting justification for their implementation.

As I have established on Freedom and Reason in numerous blogs, as the science makes clear, mass vaccination does not have a public health function. If you contract SARS-CoV-2, you are as infectious if you are double jabbed as you are if you are zero jabbed. Vaccinated people can contract and spread the virus and they are. This means that vaccine mandates and passports are arbitrary from a public health standpoint. Indeed, because vaccines (like masks) lend a false sense of security to the public, mandates and passports are counterproductive, which is why we see a positive correlation between mass vaccination and mask mandates and COVID-19 cases. There is no rational medical science reason for vaccines that not only do not work, but which exacerbate the problem. The same goes for masks. The fact that these were so eagerly taken up by the majority indicates how far down the road we are to unfreedom.

Therefore, in addition to generating mega-profits, COVID-19 is cover for the implementation of an extensive and global administrative state apparatus (I guess we could suppose that all the agencies and organizations pushing the vaccine mandate are stupid, but frankly that strikes me as an absurd conclusion). The WEF plays a central role in pushing the imposition of the apparatus. The endpoint is global neofeudalism, wherein you will, according to the WEF’s own propaganda, own nothing and be happy. The transnational elite will own everything. You will be subservient to them because you will owe everything to them. They will take liberties with your dwelling and your person since it is not your dwelling and you don’t even own yourself. Democratic-republican forms of government will be replaced by technocracy (they largely already are). If you want a preview of coming attractions, take a look at the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

Mass vaccination works in two interlocking ways: (1) the program permits the authorities to track the movements and activities of the vaccinated and those who are officially exempted by way of passports; (2) it relegates those who are not vaccinated to official second-class status, where they are made pariah by being cast as disease vectors and scapegoated for the persistence of a virus that has already persisted since at least the 1930s when it was discovered (there variants were officially named in the 1960s and the modern variants announced in the 1990s). Vaccine passports thus form a system of segregation that functions to apply pressure on individuals to rise in status by submitting to corporate state dictates by depriving them of liberties and rights that are naturally theirs by virtue of being a human being. The system, which is self-evidently intrinsically coercive, is pitched as voluntary via the language of incentive. 

What everybody will have on the other side of freedom is what the NWO provides to them. This is what lies behind the universal basic income (UBI) scheme. If everybody is provided with an income from the government, then everybody is obligated to obey the government’s edicts, and, since the government is fully captured by transnational corporate power, everybody receiving the UBI becomes a serf on a high-tech global corporate plantation. Everybody will receive the UBI by law. This will be followed by a cashless economy, with debit cards (digital along with the passports) restricting desired purchases unauthorized by government. There will be limits on everything “for the good of the planet.” Vaccine mandates and passports, UBI, debit cards, and all the rest of it are parts of the machinery, past, present, and future, paving the road to serfdom.

The scheme works in much the same way a proselytizing religion functions when it has achieved theocracy, wherein those with different religious beliefs or no religious beliefs are coerced into converting to the dominant religion to elevate their status. Otherwise, they will remain a second-class citizen (this is the way it is in Islamic theocracies, which is why I suspect Islam is so admired by the progressive left). Of course, neither faithful nor infidel are free in a theocracy. This is an authoritarian ordering of society and it is evil. This situation can also be achieved through totalitarian government and reeducation of the population, for example the PRC. For those who can’t see how all this is possible, they are blind to the fact that it already is.

Schwab’s vision is a world that runs on “intelligent robots,” “neuro-technological brain enhancements,” and “genetic editing.” This is the “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” the title of another of Schwab’s books. There, he extols the wonders of the “new technologies that are fusing the physical, digital, and biological worlds.” In this new world order, the global population is fully integrated with digital networks encompassing all aspects of life. Schwab looks forwards to these new technologies “challenging ideas about what it means to be human.” This is the transhumanists wet dream. This sounds like science fiction, but it will soon be our lives. If we allow this, we are over.
