Terence Corcoran: The Great Reset and the COVID pandemic
Trudeau’s net-zero carbon legislation sounds like Klaus Schwab’s global plan to remake the world economy
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lit up some of the highly flammable sections of social media the other day after excerpts from a two-month-old virtual speech he gave to a United Nations’ event made their way onto computer screens. The Twitter/Facebook fires were set by these words:
“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.” He also used the trending global powercrats’ slogan for post-COVID-19 recovery: “Building back better,” said Trudeau, “means getting support for the most vulnerable while maintaining our momentum on reaching the 2030 agenda for sustainable development.”
The video, picked up by The Rebel and other online media, drove thousands of hits and fired up the political right, including Fox’s Tucker Carlson, who ran with the idea that Trudeau was part of a global push to use the COVID-19 pandemic to promote a radical leftist reorganization of the global economy.
Then came a bit of pushback from the media left. The New York Times ran a piece dismissing the anti-Trudeau social media outburst under a headline “The baseless ‘Great Reset’ conspiracy theory rises again.” The BBC’s conspiracy theory beat reporter ridiculed the social media outbursts. How absurd, he said, to believe that dum-dum politicians “all came together to brilliantly execute a global master plan.”
But they have come together. There is a master plan. There is no great secret global backroom conspiracy developed behind closed doors. What we have is an upfront, publicly co-ordinated, globe-spanning political power campaign to use the COVID-19 pandemic as a launch pad for a reshaping of the global economy.
The main driving force behind The Great Reset is the World Economic Forum and its founder, Klaus Schwab.
