The Great Reset
The Great Reset is defined as a means of addressing the 'weaknesses of Capitalism' that were purported exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. But, the idea goes back farther than that, at least to 1971 with the original formation of the World Economic Forum. It introduces the concept of 'stakeholder Capitalism', where management of a modern enterprise must serve not only shareholders, but all stakeholders to achieve long term growth and prosperity. The term Great Reset came into general circulation with the publication of a book by that name in 2010. In 2020, the WEF announced the Great Reset's official launch. They said that COVID represents an 'opportunity that can be seized'. Another way of describing The Great Reset 's 'Capitalism with Chinese characteristics'. Developments that advance The Great Reset agenda are: unfettered immigration, travel restrictions, unrestrained printing of money, inflation, increased taxation, increased dependence on the state, broken supply chains, job losses due to vaccine mandates, prospect of personal carbon allowances, and more. Such policies reflect the 'fairness' aspect of the Great Reset - fairness means lowering the economic status of people in wealthier nations like the US relative to people in poorer nations. To do this, the people in the wealthier nations have to feel guilty about their wealth. This is the social justice aspect. With no obligation to answer to pesky voters, the great reset can be implemented without obstacles. As history can tell us, this concept will never work. But, in the meantime, it will leave a lot of destruction in its wake.
