“Never let a good crisis go to waste”
These famous words from Winston Churchill have taken on a more sinister meaning in 2021.
Proposed by the World Economic Forum, “the Great Reset” is supposed to be a series of socioeconomic recovery measures against COVID-19 to build a better, brighter future for humanity.
However, when you have the opportunity to start from scratch, say after a crisis like a pandemic, you can bend the rules as you like.
This Great Reset is not just COVID relief. It’s a means to usher in a technocracy where most work is done by AI, humans live in “Smart Cities” that monitor our every move, and we own nothing and are quite happy about it.
Don’t take my word for it. Israeli author Yuval Noah Harari outlined this exact vision at the World Economic Forum meeting in 2020.
“Human beings are no longer mysterious, spiritual souls, we are now hackable animals, said Harari. “There will be two classes: The exploited and the useless class (people who don’t adopt wearable technologies, metaverse, etc). It’s better to be exploited than be useless.”
Other WEF members like Prince Charles, George Soros, Bill Gates, and others have called on the people at the World Economic Forum to usher in this future before the “rats” do it.
So, here are all the terrible horrors promised in this “Great Reset.”
Silicon Valley is going to control every aspect of American life
Here’s an excerpt from a blog post by the World Economic Forum titled, “Welcome To 2030: I Own Nothing, Have No Privacy, And Life Has Never Been Better…”
“I know that, somewhere, everything I do, think and dream of is recorded. I just hope that nobody will use it against me.”
Silicon Valley has fused with the state.
The rate of our technological acceleration is mind-blowing when compared to just a century ago; and in order for our devices to work better, they’ll need more data. Data is the new oil.
If the WEF gets its way, expect social media and tech algorithms to know your taste better than you do now and for biometric tech to be ubiquitous.
Hopefully, that biotech doesn’t have an extreme racial bias as it does now. (or else my family and I are fucked).
The majority of work will be done by AI
When AI takes over this decade most mid-level jobs will cease to exist, including:
- 80% of cashiers, waiters, and store clerks
- Anything involving piloting, bus driving, Uber drivers, or any type of transportation
- Simple accounting and bookkeeping will be gone
- Insurance investigators and transactional lawyers
There also won’t be any shopping. That’s right. No shopping by 2030 and you’ll be happy about it.
Here’s another excerpt from that WEF blogpost —
Shopping? I can’t really remember what that is. For most of us, it has been turned into choosing things to use (i.e. renting everything). Sometimes I find this fun, and sometimes I just want the algorithm to do it for me. It knows my taste better than I do by now.
Smart Cities will monitor your every move
Technology is moving so fast that everything in our lives will have to speed up as we learn to adapt. This is why the “Smart Home” is being developed by the tech titans of Silicon Valley.
The next phase will be “Smart Cities” which is being worked on as we speak.
Smart Cities will be places that are so deeply interconnected with data that almost everything you interact with will already know what you want to do.
It’ll almost be like telepathy.
As the WEF stated, you won’t own anything within these cities. You won’t need to pay rent, because other people will be able to use your free space whenever you don’t need it.
One example given by the WEF was someone using your living room for business meetings when you’re not there.
Saudia Arabia is already building a smart city called Neo.
The Internet of Bodies
Imagine your every movement watched, your every thought monitored, your every decision evaluated and quantified.
You’ve heard of the internet of things, but there’s also the internet of bodies.
It’s much scarier, I promise.
IoB devices already exist today and monitor the human body, collect health metrics and transmit that data over the internet.
Any wearable fitness tech is a part of IoB. However, counting your steps and monitoring your heart rate is just the start.
In the future, artificial pancreases could automate insulin dosing for diabetics. Brain-computer interfaces could allow amputees to control prosthetic limbs with their minds. And smart diapers could alert parents via Bluetooth app when their baby needs to be changed.
The Internet of Bodies will implement some great changes for humanity. But it’ll come at the price of using the most invasive tech ever created.
Precrime will become an arrestable offense
Don’t worry, only precriminals need to worry about this one.
Predictive policing precrime tech already exists today and goes by the name ‘Carbyne911.’
Years down the line, when you call 911, Carbyne911 will pull all of the data off of your phone and analyze your past and present to extrapolate if you’ll be in the vicinity of a crime in the future.
Yes, I saw the Minority Report. It was a good movie.
Meanwhile, China is already using pre-crime software today.
China was able to run non-criminal facial features against their giant databanks of known criminals, and then predict very accurately if that person would commit a crime in the future, and what crime it would be.
Social credit system from Black Mirror
Speaking of China, the country has one of the lowest freedom indexes in the entire world. It’s almost at the North Korea level it’s so bad.
The Chinese Communist Party even banned Winnie the Pooh because their president was being compared to him too often. I know. A bitch move.
In recent years China has implemented a social credit system that grants or revokes conveniences in education, employment, healthcare, public transportation, and openings in start-ups.
‘To date, 27,000,000 airplane tickets and 6,000,000 railway tickets have been denied to Chinese citizens based on their social credit score.’ — Matthew Tye, Independent Journalist
Nearly everything you do in a day can impact your social credit score. This includes social media activities, interacting with the right or wrong people, online purchases, your finances, your achievements at work or school, and a few other esoteric activities.
The blockchain will become a bad invention
It will include your driver’s license, debit card, credit cards, Metro cards, and passports, all on this centralized ID.
This service will also give the government access to every service you use and every dollar you spend.
ID2020 has even said that, ‘freedom is a service.’
If decentralized blockchains don’t win out then we’re in for a very dystopian, Orwellian period of humanity. Many people will die fighting against it.
Cryptocurrency will have no future
‘Bitcoin has no future because it has no tangible value.’
What a dumb argument.
What these people fail to realize is that if we continue to rely on physical currency, the entire financial system won’t be able to keep up.
It’s why digital currency is happening whether you want it to or not. Already in China, they’ve issued their Digital Yuan as a means to closely monitor their citizen’s spending habits.
There are several other pragmatic benefits to fully digital fiat currency —
- More velocity of money because funds can be moved around faster
- No service or exchange fees, unlike on Robinhood or Coinbase
- Digital currencies are stored directly on your smartphone and don’t even require a wifi connection.
- Payment are faster than that of credit cards or cash
The big question is, will that currency be decentralized or centralized?
Even Ethereum creator Vitalik Butrein said governments could severely marginalize cryptocurrency and make it something only fringe communities use. I guess we’ll see.
Transhumanists will play their hand
“I tried to convince people to slow down AI. To regulate AI. This was futile. I tried for years.” — Elon Musk
In many ways, smartphones and other smart devices are already an extension of our bodies.
We are cyborgs and don’t even know it.
With that being said, merging humans with machines is coming much sooner than you think.
Technology will greatly transform the human condition by enhancing human intellect and physiology. Some people may even be able to live forever. As with the Internet of Bodies, your individualism as a human will not exist if you go down this route
All of this will seem innocuous at first, but when you play God, bad things tend to happen afterward.
Accelerating green investments
The climate is an issue, but it will be used as a way to convince people to have less freedom and less economic opportunity.
All the while, a small group of people (1%) won’t be asked to sacrifice anything.
Just like with COVID-19, a narrative will emerge that there’s no time to think rationally about anything, no time to debate anything, just listen to what we have to say.
The climate will be framed as an urgent existential crisis.
And when people are fearful, they aren’t thinking rationally.
This is what happens if you don’t join
I’ll just show you what the World Economic Forum itself said about people who don’t get on board with all of this.
From the horse’s mouth:
“My biggest concern is all the people who do not live in our city. Those we lost on the way.
Those who decided that it became too much, all this technology. Those who felt obsolete and useless when robots and AI took over big parts of our jobs. Those who got upset with the political system and turned against it.
They live a different kind of life outside of the city. Some have formed little self-supplying communities. Others just stayed in the empty and abandoned houses in small 19th century villages.”
“Real futurism means staring directly into your own grave and accepting the slow but thorough obliteration of everyone and everything you know and love.” — Bruce Sterling
I don’t have a lot of faith in the system.
Trusting the government
Trusting the official narrative
Maybe they don’t.
Here’s the thing, to remain the top global superpower, the United States does not care what you think.
When it comes to economic and military hegemony, you don’t matter. They are not going to put this to a vote.
To beat China we need to be more like China. That’s their mindset.
So, what can you do about it? Stop giving up your data so easily. Stop listening to every word the government says like it’s the gospel truth. Stop and think about things every once in a while.
Start giving a shit about your future before it’s too late.
