The “Great Reset” was trending on Twitter today, in part because of a video being spread of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
The clip is actually from a speech he gave in September, but when you listen to it perhaps you’ll see why it has relevance to today as states and cities are talking/threatening about going into a second lockdown due to the Wuhan coronavirus.
Now some might have heard the term “great reset” before and thought it a conspiracy theory but indeed it’s a stated World Economic Forum goal espoused by many world leaders on the left including Trudeau.
Listen as Trudeau lays it out, as he talks about how the pandemic has provided an “opportunity for a reset, this is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality and climate change.”
I thought this was supposed to be a conspiracy theory. But here it is, straight from Trudeau’s mouth. The pandemic is the excuse for a “Great Reset” of the world, led by the UN. pic.twitter.com/ybugYfjhAq

Here’s the longer video that the clip is from.
So it’s not just about dealing with the virus, it’s about how they can use it as an opportunity to put in everything they want.
Did you notice something else too? These words at the beginning of his remarks: “Building back better.” Now where have we heard that before? Oh, that’s right, that was the slogan of the campaign of Joe Biden. In fact, Joe was pitching that today in front of a backer of the “office of the president-elect” (which doesn’t exist, despite the fact that no state has certified the vote and the Electoral College hasn’t voted, and there are legal challenges underway).
So if you thought those words were just gobbledegook, well, yes they are, but they’re also the slogan for this change that they want to bring. And of course the expression was there before Joe Biden choose it for his campaign so yes, looks like he plagiarized it too.
And he was using it again today trying to pitch what his “administration” would do.
Let’s hear a little more about the reset.
“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” wrote Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, in an article published on WEF’s website. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”
Schwab also said that “all aspects of our societies and economies” must be “revamped,” “from education to social contracts and working conditions.”
“We need to design policies to align with investment in people and the environment,” said the general secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation, Sharan Burrow. “But above all, the longer-term perspective is about rebalancing economies.”
One of the main themes of the June meeting was that the coronavirus pandemic has created an important “opportunity” for many of the World Economic Forum’s members to enact their radical transformation of capitalism, which they acknowledged would likely not have been made possible without the pandemic.
“We have a golden opportunity to seize something good from this crisis — its unprecedented shockwaves may well make people more receptive to big visions of change,” said Prince Charles at the meeting, adding later, “It is an opportunity we have never had before and may never have again.”
So it isn’t just about stopping the virus. We’ve already seen here how ‘stopping the virus’ has mushroomed from 15 days to stop the spread which was just supposed to make it possible for our hospitals to deal with the presumed crush on the hospitals. Then it’s lockdown until the line flattens, then it’s we must keep rules in place until we have the vaccine. Now that we are likely to have vaccines very soon. we’re still hearing about the need to keep rules in place and not returning to normal. We’ve seen how easily the power goes to the head of our politicians. More troubling perhaps is we see how people are willing to give up their liberties when they fed a constant diet of fear of the virus and not the scientific reality. So we can see that yes, it’s not hard to imagine what can be shoved through when that’s what politicians are peddling. As they make clear, it’s all about control.
How about no? Capitalism may not be perfect but we’re not selling our freedom down the road for your socialist dreams.
