World leaders from the political, business, and scientific fields are coming together to “improve society” and collectively lead us into a better, “re-imagined” world post-COVID. Though well-intentioned, such efforts are a fatal threat to freedom, and it will be up to brave individuals to stand against those efforts.
During a video conference in September with the United Nations, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that the COVID-19 pandemic “has provided an opportunity for a reset.”
“This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine economic systems that could actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change,” Trudeau said.
Last week, Trudeau was questioned about his “reset” comments after conservative politicians in Canada raised alarms and pushed back against Trudeau’s globalist-sounding agenda.
He waved off the concerns as “conspiracy”.
“I think we’re seeing a lot of people fall prey to disinformation,” he said on Friday. “If Conservative MPs want to start talking about conspiracy theories, well that’s their choice. I’m going to stay focused on helping Canadians get through this…and making sure that the world we leave to our kids is even better than the world we inherited from our parents.”
Trudeau’s “reset” language, however, is taken straight from the World Economic Forum. It is not conspiracy to point to a real movement that is being advocated by our highest governmental leaders.
The World Economic Forum, established in 1971 with headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, launched “The Great Reset” initiative this year, aiming to:
“…offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a global commons.”
WEF’s partners include financial elites such as Apple, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Walmart, Google, and Facebook.
“We need to evolve our economic model,” announced the Prince of Wales in one WEF video, “putting people and planet at the heart of global value creation.”
This is exactly the kind of governance that voters rejected when, in 2016, the United Kingdom approved Brexit and America handed the presidency to Donald Trump.
It is globalism we despise and fear – the idea of bureaucrats at the highest levels of society deciding how we should live our lives.
“It’s for the greater good,” they reassure us.
But C.S. Lewis had it right when he wrote,
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.”C.S. Lewis, “God In The Dock”
What our current world leaders don’t understand is this: They were elected and appointed to their offices for the sole purpose of protecting our God-given freedoms.
Societal improvement is up to us, working at the smallest, most local levels to improve the lives of our families, our neighbors, and our communities. That is our duty and our right.
Doorways to great injustices are opened when freedoms are trampled by political and financial elites who claim they know what is best not only for us, but for the entire world.
That is a clear and present danger that we must stand against, in whatever small ways we can.
