DELINGPOLE: THE GREAT RESET IS TRENDING. HERE’S WHY…
By James Delingpole
The Great Reset has been trending on Twitter. Once you’re familiar with
what it means for the future of our civilisation, you’ll understand
Put simply, it is the blueprint for a complete transformation of the world
economy. There will be no money, no private property, no democracy.
Instead, every key decision — what you do for a living, how much stuff
you consume, whether you can take a vacation — will decided for you by a
remote, unaccountable elite of ‘experts’.
It sounds like a conspiracy theory — and is often dismissed as such by
people who imagine they are being savvy and sophisticated. In fact, though,
the people pushing for the Great Reset are perfectly open about their plan.
Indeed, they can scarcely stop talking about it…
One of these people is Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. It was a
video of Trudeau talking about the Great Reset which prompted the flurry of
nervous interest on social media.
‘Building Back Better means giving support to the most vulnerable while
maintaining our momentum on reaching the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable
Development and the SDGs. Canada is here to listen and to help. This
pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset. This is our chance to
accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine our economic systems that
actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality and
It sounds innocuous enough — the kind of meaningless garbage you’d
expect from to come from Trudeau. But in fact, there is deeper meaning to
the phrases he uses: ‘Building Back Better’; ‘2030 Agenda’;
‘Sustainable Development and the SDGs’; and ‘reset’ are all
buzzwords for the complete transformation of the global economy in order to
create a New World Order.
‘Build Back Better’ is the slogan of the Great Reset and the man who
invented it, Klaus Schwab. Schwab is a bald German in his early Eighties
with a strong accent and the sinister air of a James Bond villain who in
the 1970s founded what is now known as the World Economic Forum. The WEF
holds the annual summit at Davos in Switzerland where, it has been said,
‘billionaires go to lecture millionaires on how ordinary people live.’
Up until recently, Davos has probably seemed like a harmless event: a sort
of annual joke in which we all get to laugh at the absurd spectacle of the
one percent of the one percent turning up in their private jets and their
limousines to expound on the importance of sustainability and saving the
But the events of 2020 have changed all that because COVID-19 has provided
the perfect pretext for the kind of co-ordinated globalist takeover which
might previously have been little more than an evil glint in Klaus
By Schwab’s own admission, the world must “act jointly and swiftly to
revamp all aspects of our societies and economies” — in short, he says,
ever industry must “be transformed… we need a ‘Great Reset’ of
In a warning of the rollercoaster of change we can expect if this plan goes
ahead, Schwab continues: “The level of cooperation and ambition this
implies is unprecedented. But it is not some impossible dream. In fact, 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 the WEF puts it of the coming technocracy that would rule our lives:
“Welcome to 2030. I own nothing, have no privacy, and life has never been
There is nothing new about the Great Reset. Schwab and his acolytes have
been talking about it for years. Chinese Coronavirus – or rather the
draconian, liberty-sapping measures taken by governments in order to combat
it – has merely accelerated the process.
As I reported in an earlier piece, Schwab has written several books about
His latest, called Covid-19: The Great Reset, makes no bones about the fact
that the chaos of the Coronavirus pandemic represents the perfect
opportunity to accelerate the entire world towards a ‘new normal’.
At the time of writing (June 2020), the pandemic continues to worsen
globally. Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal. The
short response is: never. Nothing will ever return to the ‘broken’
sense of normalcy that prevailed prior to the crisis because the
coronavirus pandemic marks a fundamental inflection point in our global
Got that? As far as your new globalist overlords are concerned, you are
NEVER going to get your old life back, however much you might wish it.
Also, be clear: this is being done for your own good because your old way
of life was based on a ‘broken’ model.
Such is the author’s conviction that the new normal is what we need and
should want, he scarcely bothers to pretend that Chinese coronavirus is
anything other than a handy pretext.
Unlike certain past epidemics, COVID-19 doesn’t pose a new existential
Schwab is clear in his book that coronavirus is not so much a crisis as an
opportunity to be exploited – a chance to accelerate the birth of the New
World Order he calls The Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Radical changes of such consequence are coming that some pundits have
referred to a ‘before coronavirus’ (BC) and ‘after coronavirus’
(AC) era. We will continue to be surprised by both the rapidity and
unexpected nature of these changes – as they conflate with each other,
they will provoke second-, third-, fourth- and more-order consequences,
cascading effects and unforeseen outcomes.
All of this stuff would, of course, be mere pie in the sky if it were just
a sinister-looking bald guy with a passing resemblance to Blofeld saying
it. Unfortunately, lots of people of influence around the world take this
stuff very seriously.
That’s why Joe Biden used ‘Build Back Better’ as his campaign slogan.
It’s why the UK Conservatives feature the website on their Twitter page.
And why UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson inserts the phrase into his
In fact, as I reported in May, it’s a phrase you find being used by all
manner of institutions. My piece was titled ‘Build Back Better’ – the
Latest Code Phrase for Green Global Tyranny’.
Hardly anyone was interested back then. Maybe more people will be now that
they start to realise that while these Global Reset guys may sound like
kooks they are in fact deadly serious.
Sure, it sounds like a conspiracy theory.
But as someone wise once said, it’s not a conspiracy theory when they
tell you exactly what they’re doing…
