Nazism (or National Socialism) under Hitler in 1930s Germany was a form of fascism where government and the private sector joined forces to create a totalitarian state. The “Great Reset” envisioned by the World Economic Forum, made up of the world’s political, economic, and cultural elites that meet every year in Davos, Switzerland, is Nazism redux.
The hoped-for consequence of the Great Reset is a globalist state that would resemble a “1984” world with a powerful elite on the top and you and me on the bottom. The vehicle for making this happen is the “man-made global warming” hoax that is used to justify killing Western economies. The theory is that global warming caused by human-related CO2 emissions is destroying living conditions throughout the world. The WEF, in collaboration with the UN, supports the delusion that this allegedly dangerous climate change can be averted if we end our reliance on fossil fuels.
The Biden administration and the Democratic-controlled Congress are playing into the hands of the Great Reset by demanding replacement of fossil fuels with clean forms of energy such as wind and solar. Biden’s energy policy will fail for three reasons: (1) human beings are incapable of controlling the climate, which works in cycles that are not affected by human-generated carbon emissions; (2) our standard of living is dependent on fossil fuels; and (3) alternative forms of energy capable of replacing fossil fuels are not available and will not be available in the foreseeable future. The defects of the Great Reset can be found in Sri Lanka, Ghana, and the Netherlands. Wherever it is tried, economies fail and people starve.
Man-made global warming is one of the greatest hoaxes of the last 100 years. Any policy based on this hoax is doomed. By waging war on the oil industry, Biden has reversed the economic success of the Trump administration, causing massive inflation and rising prices that are putting millions of Americans in the poorhouse. And this is just the beginning.
In The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism, radio host Glenn Beck describes the Great Reset as an “international conspiracy between powerful bankers, business leaders, and government officials” that will destroy the American way of life. The US, he says, has shifted from Trump’s “America First” agenda to the globalist Great Reset. “After committing to the principles of the Great Reset,” says Beck, Congress is attempting to pass versions of the Green New Deal that eventually will wipe out more than ten million jobs and devastate the US economy.
In an attempt to force conformity with leftist goals, supporters of the Great Reset introduced ESG, which stands for Environment, Social, and Governance. It is a set of criteria used to encourage investment in companies that are “socially responsible.” ESG is based on the idea that corporations should be custodians for society; they should be accountable not only to shareholders but also to “stakeholders”—other individuals and groups that stand to benefit or lose from corporate behavior. Political scientist Ivan Wecke, writing in Open Democracy, reports that existing stakeholder groups consist of big corporations who collaborate with governments to make economic rules. They include WEF partners Shell, Saudi Aramco, Chevron, Unilever, Coca-Cola, Nestle, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Facebook, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and Apple.
ESG, reports Justin Haskins at Fox Business, rewards companies that cater to employee diversity, punishes companies that don’t support Biden’s climate change agenda, and discriminates “against those who hold social and political views corporate leaders don’t like. For example, the conservative group Moms for Liberty claims payment processor PayPal froze its assets because of the organization’s ideological views.” So ESG is really not about being socially responsible—it is about control over you and me.
According to cultural critic Michael Rectenwald, writing in Imprimis, ESG is being used “to squeeze non-woke corporations and businesses out of the market. The ESG index is essentially a social credit score that is used to drive ownership and control of production away from the non-woke or non-compliant.” Rectenwald warns that ESG can lead to an end of the free enterprise system by establishing “corporate cooperation with the state and vastly increased government intervention in the economy.” Voila! Nazi redux.
“The idea of stakeholder capitalism and multi-stakeholder partnerships might sound warm and fuzzy,” Wecke says, “until we dig deeper and realize that this actually means giving corporations more power over society, and democratic institutions less.”
The proliferation of ESG ultimately will ensure that Western economies go woke and go broke. According to Great Reset theorists, says Rectenwald, “fairness requires lowering the economic status of people in wealthier nations like the US relative to that of people in poorer regions of the world. One of the functions of woke ideology,” Rectenwald explains, “is to make the majority in developed countries feel guilty about their wealth, which the elites aim to reset downwards—except, one notices, for the elites themselves, who need to be rich in order to fly in their private jets to Davos each year.”
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has proposed legislation that will protect individual liberty and free-market economics from the intrusion of ESG. It would prohibit banks from discriminating against customers on the basis of political or social beliefs, and mandate that the state’s money managers “only consider maximizing the return on investment on behalf of Florida’s retirees.”
The Great Reset is not a right-wing conspiracy theory, as many on the Left would suggest, but a clear and present danger to our way of life. “Because the goals of the Great Reset depend on the obliteration not only of free markets, but of individual liberty and free will, it is unsustainable,” Rectenwald concludes. “Like earlier attempts at totalitarianism, the Great Reset is doomed to ultimate failure. That doesn’t mean, however, that it won’t leave a lot of destruction in its wake—which is all the more reason to oppose it now and with all our might.”
