Good evening everyone, I guess you've had time to watch the news, and apart from government propaganda (which we won't relay), there are few interest tickets, but there are To,

And once again our lifeline will come from abroad and from the site 'The Last American Vagabond', this excellent site where Withney Webb also officiates, who offers us this article which tells us about the propaganda that Davos will implement through "Le Grand Récit" to justify their draconian measures, and a such caste of psychopaths, and also organized, I admit that it's scary.

But all is not lost, because according to Éric Verhaeghe the 'Great Reset' in itself not expected to take place before 2025, so that means that for 4 years they will continue to 'place' their pawns, to distill the fable Coal and all their rhetoric.

However Derrick Broze is right, we don't know how people will react.

Also, challenging is good, but you also have to be force of proposal (Further information).

And be ready.

About Derrick Broze

As the World Economic Forum prepares to resume its annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, the "International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation" is launching the next phase of The Great Reset - The Great Narrative program.

On November 11-12, the World Economic Forum hosted a two-day meeting titled "The Great Narrative" in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to discuss "longer term outlook" and of "co-create a narrative that can help guide the creation of a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable vision for our collective future". The WEF has brought together futurists, scientists and philosophers from around the world to imagine their vision of the world resetting and to imagine what it might look like in the next 50 years. Discussions will be collected and published in a book, The Great Narrative, in January 2022.

The release of The Great Narrative will coincide with the annual meeting of the WEF, which will take place from January 17 to 21, 2022 in Davos, Switzerland, and whose theme will be "Working together, restoring trust". According to WEF, the "meeting will focus on accelerating stakeholder capitalism, harnessing fourth industrial revolution technologies and ensuring a more inclusive future of work“. The message is essentially the same one that the WEF and its partners have been calling for since the onset of the COVID-19 event: a great reset of the economic, governmental, health, food production and technological systems that under- strain all human life.

The programme The great reset has been announced at the beginning of June 2020 by the WEF as an apparent response to COVID-19. The launch of The Great Reset was supported by Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, Prince Charles of England, Antonio Guterres, Secretary General of the UN, and Kristalina Georgieva of the International Monetary Fund. The WEF has spent the last year spreading its propaganda and partnering with governments and private companies that share its goals of a world run by technocrats who make top-down decisions for the masses on behalf of the struggle for diversity and sustainability.

Regular readers will recall that on October 18, 2019, the WEF partnered with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security for a high-level pandemic exercise known as theEvent 201. Event 201 simulated how the world would react to a coronavirus pandemic sweeping the planet. The simulation imagined the death of 65 million people, mass shutdowns, quarantines, the censorship of alternative viewpoints under the guise of fighting "misinformation", and even the idea of ​​arresting people who hand over into question the narrative of the pandemic.

Now, as the Great Reset agenda enters its second year, Schwab and his associates at the WEF are changing their messaging and focusing on "The Big Story."

The Grand Narrative and the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Before we get into the content of "The Great Narrative" event, let's take a look at what is meant by "Great Narrative". In many forms of media, storytelling is defined as "a way to present interrelated events in order to tell a good story", or "the retelling of related events in a cohesive format that revolves around a central theme or idea". In our daily lives, storytelling can be seen as the way in which we as human beings come to understand the world around us. We form narratives or stories about our political realities and our interpersonal relationships.

Moreover, in philosophy, the term "narrative" can take on an even deeper meaning. Recently, Tim Hinchliffe of Sociable, wrote about the concept of storytelling in relation to philosophy:

    The idea of ​​a grand narrative is something the French philosopher Jean-Francois Lyotard called a "big story" (a.k.a "metanarrative") Who, according to Philo-Notes stated, "functions to legitimize power, authority and social customs- everything the grand narrative tries to achieve.

    Authoritarians use grand narratives to legitimize their own power, and they do so by claiming to have knowledge and understanding that speaks of a universal truth.

    At the same time, authoritarians use these grand narratives in an "attempt to translate the alternative narratives into their own language and to remove all objections to what they say themselves".

With this understanding, the WEF's call for a "Grand Narrative" must be seen for what it really is - an attempt to displace all other visions of humanity's future by placing the WEF and its partners at the heart of a story that depicts them as the heroes of our time. This fits perfectly with the technocratic philosophy employed by the founder of the WEF, Klaus Schwab. It envisions a future where "public-private partnerships" between governments, private companies and "philanthropies" use their wealth, influence and power to design the future they believe is best for humanity. In reality, thehe philosophy of the technocrats merges with a transhumanist state of mind which sees humanity as limited, imperfect, and in need of being augmented by technology in order to accelerate what Schwab calls the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

On the first day of The Great Narrative, Klaus Schwab sat down with Mohammad Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs of the United Arab Emirates, for a panel discussion titled Narrating the Future. "We are here to develop the Grand Narrative, a story for the future,” Schwab said during the panel. “We are here today to craft a Grand Narrative, a story for the future.” I quote His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, when he said: "The future belongs to those who can imagine it, design it and execute it. We are here now to imagine the future, design it, then execute it."

Minister Al Gergawi spoke of the public "seeking a path for a 'Great Transformation'". The Minister strove to promote social justice using all the usual WEF and UN buzzwords, while mentioning that the world's richest 1% own more wealth than ever before, the world's poor are living on less than a dollar a day with climate change. Al Gergawi also mentioned several times that "the future belongs to those who imagine it, design it and implement it", while discussing the next stage of human evolution and the role that technology will play.

    Human evolution has gone through phases - we discovered fire, we discovered the wheel - today, with technology, what will happen in the next 50 years will be totally different. So for us, as humanity, for hundreds of thousands of years we have been following a normal rhythm," said UAE Cabinet Affairs Minister Mohammad Abdullah Al Gergawi. "The current rhythm is complex because for the first time, with technology, we are bringing together our society, our economy, our government, our life, and there is only one platform. Everything that happens in the future will be based on what we design now.

The Minister also spoke of the need for government to evolve as an institution in the same way that we have seen private sector institutions evolve. This is likely a reference to the fact that the primary mission of the WEF is to change the role of government and private business until there is little distinction between state power and private power.

Another subject that has been the subject of much discussion is the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) and metaverse. The metaverse will be covered in part two of this series. The 4IR is another favorite project of Klaus Schwab which was first announced in December 2015. Put simply, the 4IR is the digital panopticon of the future, where digital surveillance is ubiquitous and humanity uses digital technology to change our lives. Often associated with terms like Internet of Things, Internet of Bodies, Internet of Humans and Internet of Senses, this world will be powered by 5G and 6G technologies. Of course, for Schwab and other globalists, the 4IR also lends itself to more central planning and top-down control. The goal is a track and trace society where all transactions are recorded, where every person has a digital identity that can be tracked, and where social malcontents are locked out of society via social credit scores.

    "Pervasive, mobile supercomputing. Intelligent robots. Self-driving cars. Neuro-technological brain enhancements. Genetic modification. Evidence of dramatic change is all around us and happening at an exponential rate," wrote Schwab when announcing the 4IR.

At one point, Schwab highlighted the relevance of holding The Great Narrative reunion in the United Arab Emirates. "When I wrote my book and presented this notion of 4IR as the force that shapes our future, we felt it was very important that we really work together on a global level in order to use the potential of the 4IR for the benefit of humanity, because technology also has certain pitfalls and can be used to the detriment of humanity", Schwab told The Great Narrative. “So we have established this network of centers around the world, and you were the first country to respond positively. I would like to thank the Minister for the great cooperation we have here with our Center for the 4IR, and I am also very happy that we have gathered here economists, sociologists, but also representatives, scientists who can really enlighten us on all these new technologies."

During the panel The next 50 years, Klaus Schwab discussed with His Excellency Omar bin Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy and Remote Work Applications, of his vision for the next 50 years for his country. Mr. Al Olama is also a WEF partner. It is during this panel that the decision to host The Great Narrative in the UAE becomes evident. The UAE has spent the past few years promoting itself as a hotbed for the development of digital technologies, specifically AI and robotics. Minister Al Olama even joked that the purpose of his work was to transform into a form of AI.

Minister Al Olama also spoke about how hotels, taxis and other sectors have been revolutionized by digital technology, as well as the inevitability of digitalization of the economy. "There won't be two savings", did he declare. "We're at this inflection point right now where we can confidently say - traditional economy, digital economy, but at some point in the near future when 4IR becomes more mainstream, there will only be a digital economy. Or an economy that, if not purely digital, is made possible by digital means."

Al Olama also discusses his nation's investments in 5G technology and how these investments will help them pave the way for the fourth industrial revolution.

This discussion of artificial intelligence, the 4IR, a cashless digital society, and the Great Reset is absolutely vital for the average person to understand. These unelected technocrats continue to organize events and publish reports as if people around the world are asking them for help and advice. They hide under a veneer of benevolence, but the facade is wearing thin and the peoples of the world are beginning to question the true mission of the WEF, the Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation and other such actors. To understand their true intentions, we need to take note of the actions of WEF partner nations and organizations. This includes the United Arab Emirates.

Technocratic authoritarianism

While the political leaders of the United Arab Emirates and Klaus Schwab can portray themselves as the heroes of our time, we should judge them by their actions and who they associate with, not the flowery language they use to distract us. The fact is that the UAE has an awful human rights record. The nation is known for expelling those who renounce Islam, limiting press freedoms and enforcing elements of Sharia.

In 2020, the United Arab Emirates announced the creation of a human rights council to deal with human rights issues, but criticism accused the leaders of "whitewashing" the problem. Despite promises of change and the relaxation of alcohol and divorce laws, the UAE is still struggling to maintain an image of a free nation.

In September, European Union lawmakers called on the United Arab Emirates to release several prominent human rights activists and other "peaceful dissidents" imprisoned in the country. They also called for a boycott of theExpo 2020, underway in Dubai. (Expo organizers themselves recently announced their commitment towards the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, which are part of the 2030 Agenda and the Great Reset). The resolution calls for the "immediate and unconditional" release of Ahmed Mansoor, Mohammed al-Roken and Nasser bin Ghaith.

Mansoor is a 52-year-old man who was arrested in 2017 and condemned to 10 years in prison for publishing false information and "insulting the status and prestige of the UAE", including in posts on social media platforms. Al-Roken is a human rights lawyer currently serving a 10-year prison sentence after being found guilty of attempting to overthrow the government in a mass trial in July 2013. Bin Ghaith was also imprisoned for 10 years in March 2017 for criticizing the UAE authorities via social media.

According to the report of Human Rights Watch on the United Arab Emirates of 2021 :

    In 2020, the authorities of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) continued to invest in a strategy of " soft power aiming to portray the country as a progressive, tolerant and rights-respecting nation, but their fierce intolerance of criticism was on full display with the continued unjust imprisonment of prominent human rights activist Ahmed Mansoor , academic Nasser bin Ghaith, and many other activists and dissidents, some of whom had completed their sentences three years ago and remain detained without a clear legal basis.

    Dozens of activists, academics and lawyers are serving long sentences in UAE prisons, often after unfair trials based on vague and blanket charges that violate their rights to freedom of expression and of association.

On the face of it, these accusations of human rights violations make WEF's decision to hold its Great Narrative event in the United Arab Emirates strange. After all, why would an organization that claims to be driven by creating a more inclusive, diverse, sustainable and equitable world turn a blind eye to these troubling concerns and side with the leaders of the UAE? However, this choice makes perfect sense once you accept that the WEF's language about fairness and designing a better future for humanity is utter nonsense.

In their vision of the future, you will own nothing and be happy as authoritarian nations like the United Arab Emirates partner with Big Tech to monitor their people's use of carbon, electricity and other resources, while assigning a social credit score to determine access of each individual to privileges such as travel and work. This is the "grand narrative" the technocrats wish to imprint on our minds and hearts in this "decade of transformation".

Who will shape the future?

When Klaus Schwab opened The Great Narrative, he spoke of the difficulties of "shaping the future". Specifically, he said three obstacles stand in the way of the World Economic Forum's Great Reset agenda.

First, Mr. Schwab believes that "people have become much more self-centered and, to some extent, selfish". This, he says, makes "more difficult the creation of a compromise, because shaping the future, designing the future usually requires a common will of people". To me, this sounds like a subtle admission that the people of the world are more interested in their personal vision of the future than in that of technocrats. One could infer that people are "self-centered" or "selfish", but another way of looking at it is that the public doesn't want to have a global governance system that tries to centrally plan their lives.

The second hurdle that Schwab and the WEF face is that "we've all become so crisis-focused with the pandemic". The third obstacle to the transformation of the world is that "the world has become so complex" and "Simple solutions to complex problems are no longer enough.Schwab also mentioned that there is no longer a separation between the social, the political, the technological, the ecological - "everything is intertwined".

"It is very difficult in such a situation to really bring everyone together and imagine and design the future."Schwab said. Again, this seems to indicate that Schwab is aware that he will not be able to force every nation or population to voluntarily buy into the technocrats' vision of the Great Reset/Grand Narrative. There will be There will be resistance and non-conformity to the centralized, top-down view of the predatory class.

However, despite this resistance from the working class around the world, there is still a grave danger that the technocrats will realize their vision. The predatory class behind the Great Reset, Agenda 2030, etc., have spent decades (if not centuries) planning and investing trillions of dollars in their attempts at global societal transformation. These psychopaths are fully aware of the importance of sketching out a vision of the future and taking concrete steps to design that future. As they work day and night to realize their nightmare scenario, the average citizen is unaware of the despotic plans unfolding before them. Even those aware of Great Reset plans often lack tangible actions to avoid being swallowed up by the technocratic and transhumanist seizure of power.

If we are to free ourselves from the plans of the Great Reset, we must have our own vision of the future that we hope to design. We should spend more time working towards manifesting our visions of a free, prosperous, and self-reliant humanity, where individual liberty, personal property, and bodily autonomy are celebrated. We have the power to imagine, design and implement our vision of the future. We have the power to create the People's Reset.
