As Boris Johnson Announces Britain’s ‘Great Reset’, Were the Covid ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ Right All Along?

By Neil Clark , RT News   October 8, 2020

The UK Prime Minister’s remote speech to his party conference saw him dismiss the idea of returning to normality. Is he using Covid-19 to follow the World Economic Forum’s ‘Great Reset’ agenda, as many have warned?

It’s not really about public health or a virus. They have another agenda.’ That’s what the so-called ‘conspiracy theorists’ have been saying since March, when the first British lockdowns were imposed and our lives were turned upside down.

Those ‘conspiracy theorists’ were denounced, as always, as ‘cranks’ and ‘flat-Earthers’ but here we are in October, and, let’s face it, there is absolutely no sign, despite very low numbers of deaths ‘with’ Coronavirus, that we are returning to anything like normal. In fact, in his keynote speech yesterday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson specifically ruled out a return to normal, not even with a vaccine.

After all we have been through, it isn’t enough just to go back to normal. We have lost too much. History teaches us that things of this magnitude – wars, famines, plagues, events that affect the vast bulk of humanity, as this virus has – they do not just come and go. They can be the trigger for economic and social change.”

When I heard Johnson utter those words I thought, ‘where have I heard this stuff before?’ Well, the answer is in the book ‘Covid-19: The Great Reset’ by Klaus Schwab, the executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Thierry Malleret. They too, like Johnson, invoked the Second World War as the trigger for fundamental changes, not only to the global order and global economy, but to society and the way human beings interact with one another. Like Johnson, they don’t want to return to normal. “Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal. The short response is never.”

Instead, Schwab and Malleret want a world changed forever by a virus which they admit is only ‘mild’ compared to others in history. Covid-19 is seen as the catalyst for the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’.

As to where all this is heading, I recommend you read Schwab’s ‘Great Reset’, and his earlier ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution’, but please don’t do so late at night, because they will probably give you nightmares. Schwab’s elitist Davos-man utopia is a trans-human, socially distanced, utterly soulless dystopia for the rest of us. Think of the most terrifying sci-film you’ve ever watched and that still doesn’t go anywhere near it. And the worst thing is that it is sold to us as some kind of ‘progressive’ vision.

Johnson, in his speech yesterday, showed he’s a fully-signed up ‘Great Resetter’. It was, for me, the most chilling oration ever made by any British prime minister at a party conference.

The man who justified a national lockdown in March on a purely temporary three-week basis to ‘flatten the curve’, and ‘protect the NHS’, and who said in the summer, after the lockdown had lasted three months, that he hoped Britain would return to ‘significant normality’ by November, now tells us: “We have been through too much frustration and hardship just to settle for the status quo ante – to think that life can go on as it was before the plague; and it will not… We are resolving not to go back to 2019.”

For Johnson, using the globalists’ phrase ‘Build Back Better’, this is the time to launch Britain on the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’. “From internet shopping to working from home, it looks as though Covid has massively accelerated changes in the world of work… as old jobs are lost and as new ones are created… The Covid crisis is a catalyst for change…” he said.

Did Schwab actually write his speech? It looks like it. Although Johnson didn’t use the phrase ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution’, he did mention a ‘Green Industrial Revolution’ twice.

Johnson foresees a future in which every home in Britain relies on wind power (he certainly produces a lot of that), and “instead of being dragged on big commutes to the city” people can “start a business in their home town… and bring up their children in the neighbourhoods where they grew up themselves.”

Working from home is here to stay, with “gigabit broadband,” shopping from home, conferencing from home… in fact, let’s do everything from home. Who needs to meet other human beings? Not that there’d be anywhere to meet, with pubs, cinemas and theatres all closed down due to the never-ending coronavirus restrictions.

Johnson pledged to make Britain “the greatest place on Earth” but to me it sounds more like hell. The question, as ever, is who benefits?

The World Economic Forum, founded by Schwab, has been incredibly influential when it comes to the changes we’ve already seen in 2020, and what is being openly planned for the future. It was the WEF which co-hosted the Event 201 conference in New York in October 2019, which modelled a fictional global pandemic.

It was at the WEF’s annual meeting in Davos on January 24, 2020 that Bill Gates’ Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness and Innovations (CEPI) held a press conference to announce a ‘new partnership’ to develop vaccines for the virus, when the number of confirmed worldwide cases was still in the hundreds.

It was the WEF’s Schwab who declared in June: The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine and reset our world.

It was the WEF that in July was promoting a Covid-19 Health Passport app, the ‘brainchild’ of one of its ‘Young Global Leaders’, as the future for travel and attending events.

And for those who don’t have the app or a ‘negative‘ test result? Well, you can just stay at home.

If you take a look at the founding partners of the WEF’s Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution you’ll see names such as Microsoft, Palantir, Facebook, Netflix and Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance, founded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Yes, that’s right, hi-tech online giants and hi-tech multi-billionaires supporting a big shift towards a stay-at-home, ‘do everything on the Internet’ society.

Is it a ‘conspiracy theory’ to say that Covid-19 is being used as a convenient opportunity to introduce long-planned changes to the economy and society, when those pushing for such changes like Schwab openly talk of there being a “rare but narrow window” for a major ‘reset’?

Actually, after Johnson’s speech yesterday, the biggest ‘conspiracy theorists’ now are those who DON’T think the British government is working to another agenda.

  1. @ Michael S:
    You are absolutely right, Michael. “Conservative” covers a lot of territory.
    Many years ago, one of my coworkers very patiently tried to explain to me that Nazism was just a conservative movement.
    The difference between the 1930’s and now is that there is no split anymore between totalitarian regimes and the “great English-speaking democracies”.
    In fact, it is exactly these democracies who seem to stand at the origin of the future AI concentration camp this time.

  2. @ Enzo:
    Enzo, you’re right about Reader’s comment; but I can’t wholeheartedly endorse the idea that “Conservatives” will save us. Whether you’re in the US or UK, the word “conservative” ought to conjure up an endless stream of lies and betrayal — from “Read my Lips” and “New World Order” Bush 41 to “Islam is Peace” Bush 43 to a whole chorus of “Never Trump” RINOs to Theresa May to Boris Johnson.

    We are entering into a world dominated by totalitarian dictatorships, reminiscent of the 1930s (Hitler, Stalin, Franco, etc.), at the same time as the advent of AI, drones, gene splicing and and other potentially malevolent technology.

    In the early part of 1941, they collectively looked like an unstoppable juggernaut: The Stalin-Hitler alliance seemed to dominate Eurasia; the Jewish people seemed on their way to extinction; the great English-speaking democracies appeared hopelessly weak and unprepared in the face of, as Reader calls them, “criminally insane” leaders on the verge of taking over the world. Then they were defeated, in four short years, and replaced by the free, democratic “Pax Americana” for the next 75 years.

    We’ve been here before. I suspect that this latest “reset” will go the way of Obama’s “reset” with Russia. “Tell Vladimir, that after the coming election, things will be different.” It’ll be different, for sure; but nobody knows just how.

  3. @ Reader:
    You are absolutely right and I agree with you. However, it is up to us to make sure we are not all transformed in zombies. And to start this process of dis-alienation we should make sure to vote Conservative every time there is an election.

  4. Actually, many “reset” advocates want to go well beyond what this author suggests, and make us all into “cyborg” robots controlled by big corporations. From ZeroHedge:

    “Skynet Does The Office: Citrix Says By 2035, Workers With Implanted Chips Will Have “Labor Market Advantage”
    Just when you thought things couldn’t get more dystopian this year, American multi-national software company Citrix has quietly released into the internet ethos that it expects workers to have “implanted chips” by the year 2035.

    “Welcome to McDonald’s. Can I take your order?”

    Citrix has joined names like Zoom and Slack as popular talking points during the coronavirus pandemic, as more Americans work from home. The trend, while it may reverse course post-pandemic, is still widely considered to be secular in nature as software and technology has made it easier than ever to work from home.

    But just how easy should we be making it? Citrix seems to think that Americans should willingly start turning themselves into cyborgs – a decision that, as champions of liberty we are fine with if people want it – but at the behest of their corporate overlords.

    Most Will Come Back to Office After Covid, Says Progressive CEO

    The company Tweeted out about a week ago that those with “implanted chips” by 2035 will likely have a “labor market advantage”.

    Yeah, and if you turn yourself into a full on robot that never has to use the bathroom, eat or smoke a cigarette on a break, that would probably make you more appealing as well.

    “By 2035 some workers will have taken technology augmentation a step further, choosing to be enhanced with implanted chips,” Citrix’s “Work 2035” report read. “Almost half (48%) of professionals would be willing to have a chip implanted in their body if it would significantly improve their performance and remuneration.”

    The report notes an obvious delta between business “leaders” and employees on their feelings about implants: “Almost eight in 10 business leaders (77%) believe that under-the-skin chips and sensors will increase worker performance and productivity by 2035, compared to just 43% of employees who share this view.”

    The company followed up in a blog post on its website: “Seventy-seven percent of all surveyed professionals believe that by 2035, AI will significantly speed up their decision-making process. A majority of respondents agree that in the future, tech interfaces will increase human productivity and performance.”

    And, like it or not, Citrix predicts AI will have a profound presence in office environments going forward: “Additionally, although over 3/4 of leaders believe that organizations will create functions like AI management departments and cybercrime response units, fewer than half of employees anticipate these business units by 2035.”

    But while business leaders are obviously quick to embrace the cost savings that come with AI, the rank and file doesn’t seem to jazzed about the idea: “Whereas most business leaders anticipate a world of strong corporate structures powered by a flourishing human-tech partnership, employees foresee a much more fragmented world, with big corporations no longer dominant, and many roles replaced by technology.”

    You can read Citrix’s full “Work 2035″ report here, though we’re not sure why you’d want to.

    Maybe just wait until 2021 to crack this one open.”

    I don’t think “THe Great Reset” by Klaus Schwab and Thomas Malloret goes quite this far, at least not openly. But they do stress the importants of “AI” “artificial intelligence” developed for, and eventually by, machines) to assist human decision-makers, including workers, as part of the “Great Reset.” Plan is to reduce us to machines controlled by big corporations–or eventually perhaps by literal machines.

  5. And at the very moment the alleged pandemic is keeping people shut in, the streets are full of 5G technicians working on broadband and wifi so that the “internet of things” will soon be a reality. Coincidence?
