Reason is the planet’s leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to for a point of view you won’t get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines.
“The coronavirus pandemic has no parallel in modern history. It is our defining moment.” 

Those are the words of Klaus Schwab, head of the World Economic Forum (WEF), in COVID-19: The Great Reset, the 2020 book he co-authored with Thierry Malleret. 

“Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal,” they write in the book’s introduction. “The short response is: never.”

At the latest WEF meeting in Davos, Switzerland, this January, Schwab set the tone for the conference with his glowing introduction of the opening speaker: Xi Jinping, China’s president and chairman of the Chinese Communist Party 

“Major economies should see the world as one community… and should coordinate the objectives, intensity, and pace of fiscal and monetary policies,” said Xi in his address to the WEF.  

This vision of a united globe with a coordinated economy managed by experts captures Schwab’s vision of the post-COVID world. “We have to redefine the social contract,” said Schwab at a 2020 WEF book launch event for The Great Reset. 

These grand proclamations, the ominous book title, and Schwab’s odd personal style have led many people to speculate that the “great reset” is part of a conspiracy of global financial elites and politicians to depopulate the planet so that they can more easily institute one-world government, or even that COVID was engineered to that end. 

I don’t buy it. Far-reaching, global conspiracies require levels of coordination and shared purpose likely to be quickly exposed and fall apart, especially in the networked age. Instead of spinning our wheels searching for a secret agenda, take a look at the one right out in the open.  

“I think we are moving from short-term to long-term, from shareholder capitalism to stakeholder capitalism,” said Schwab at his 2020 book event.

What Xi, the WEF, and people like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D–Mass.) have in common is that they favor so-called stakeholder capitalism, which is a euphemism for making companies answer first to special interests. They want to reorganize corporate boards to include representatives from labor, environmental, and social justice groups. Warren proposed a bill to require 40 percent of large corporate board seats be elected by workers. In China, the state simply owns or controls a majority stake in most of the country’s largest firms.

  1. The globalists say what they're going to do. And they're doing it. This video is an attempt by those people to call into question what they've already said they will do. The Georgia Guidestones talk about a world with a sustainable population of 100 million. That means that over 7 billion people have to die. Those people literally and knowingly serve Satan. The world will be turned over to the antichrist. It looks like that will be sometime in the few years.

  2. Why is it so hard for this man to conceive that rich powerful people might talk among themselves on how to become richer and more powerful?

    Also its been exposed by many who you term as "conspiracy theorist" and still you have your head in the sand like an ostrich.

  3. I couldn't agree more on what you've said that the concentration of power poses an existential risk. Problem is, these people are not gonna give up on this. None of them. They are used to living the super good life at the severe expense on others. While mr Claus of the WEF designs our future economy on his 1500ft long yacht with 200 servants and crew, there are people dying of dehydration or starvation. They don't even have the basics. And he's fine with this. He would never abandon his yacht, extravagant vilas and servants just so some peasants have water. So, what kind of economy or future is he gonna design exactly? As for the state, they are not there to concentrate power, tech, or knowledge. They shouldn't be the gatekeepers of anything but providers to their people. They are there to provide all basic and non basic needs if possible, to better the lives of every one of their citizens. The state IS the people, and all of what they manage is built by their people. They should realise their role, and in the imaginary world where they actually did, I think their people with their needs met and having their freedom would in turn create. Decentralization and freedom cannot happen when you have gatekeepers or powerful hubs or powerful people. They will stop this too. And I don't see technology as a means for decentralization, as powerful hubs have managed to intervene and control everything technological. Eg. your gov has intentional exploits both in software and hardware. They can easily do anything they want, even if you write your own OS, you're still gonna be using their hardware. You're even carrying a pocket computer, your phone, which records and transmits anything you could possibly do. Want software or hardware from somewhere else? Some other gov has done the same. Now, try to decentralize on this. I don't see a solution really. What you call decentralization is just an illusion these fucks let you believe, like your freedom. There's none of that, nowhere. And yes, these people will eventually realise what they done, when it's too late to fix anything. I'm of the opinion that we'll all just go away, with these powerful fucks getting a taste of their own medicine. And maybe that's the natural course of civilizations who do this. They just go away. The universe would never allow for this, as everything would die if it did.

  4. Hey bro, in the next 7 years it will be a mass depopulation. One is the rapture of the Church of Jesus. Following closely behind will be a quarter of the world's population will be killed with war, famine, and God's wrath.

  5. All the ideology is based on the premise that people need governing… if you end that idea what do you think will happen? People are very capable of organizing themselves and have done so for much of our time here on the planet… just get rid of government,,,, and these people know this to be true and are struggling to maintain the old way of hierarchy … this is finished….we are moving on from such ideology…. We all know from experience that the system is not working and doesn’t work because we have an enormous mess everywhere….We know that there are creative people in this world who can create a lot of wonderful things and build beautiful things and make beautiful music but all of these aspects of society have been stolen and monetized…. This is where we get off the train …. It’s known as FREEDOM

  6. People think that a journalist in today's world goes out and finds stories, not knowing it's easier and more beneficial to make stories happen, to shape the perspective of the population of the world. I think it's obvious after the last 2 years of shutting people up, in the name of democracy which makes no sense because a wise man once said;

    ''The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society”

    If you don't know who made that quote and you watch the ''News''. Then I might suggest that you just give up now, and never use the word disinformation, against someone with a story that might be true because you obviously, know nothing.

  7. Look at it from a non conspiracy point of view, if your a great economist and you have idiot politicians hanging around banning every idea due to moral, ethical and self interest reasons then something else is required. It won't happen and anyway economics and money should be one aspect of your life only !

  8. is laughable that people like this guy thinks is a conspiracy theory you really need to look to the other side to not see how obvious all this is

  9. One world government. Isn't there a book somewhere that says such a thing will happen. Now to see which one will be the top dog and which ones will get the knife in in the back.

  10. 2 years later the world economy in the ruins thanks to these "experts" , 2 years from now we may not have clean water to drink … they just take our lives and crush them, it's the only trend that is constant and historic.

  11. Escape where? A bunker hid somewhere?

    If all countries adhere to the great reset (by choice or by force) there's nowhere for us to run to. We won't be able to own real estate. We won't be able to just move somewhere that treats us well.

    We won't be able to hold precious metals or any other "thing" that can be used for bartering and we'll be closely monitored. If you don't want to work you won't have a place to live and you won't be allowed to buy food. They will eventually lock you down and torture you into oblivion if you don't comply. What we see happening in China is just a sample of what's coming for us, sadly. If people will be brainwashed and like it (majority, I know I won't) or if there's going to be some sort of revolution we don't know yet, but the ones in power evolved and they know which buttons they can press and how to press them, so we might lose and they might win, for good, this time. 😬

  12. Financial slavery. Look at RENT RAPE! People can barely pay these 40% plus monthly increases. Black rock is buying up so much real estate. They control how poor people will be, by limiting access and making housing barely affordable. Landlords are using apps to facilitate “POD LIVING”. Dividing one house into 14 compartments for 14 tenants….disgusting.

  13. This so-called organization who has to fall this is the Hitler and Caesar and the pharaoh of our day and me as one I will not stand for it I'm no one but I'll make myself someone

  14. You're wrong on a major point. The censorship of the tech giants demonstrated towards anyone who posts anti government narratives during the Covid scam shows they are under direct government control.

  15. This is Authoritarian control, we pay the price while billionaires get richer. These people don't care about the environment they are just invested in green energy. They want total control with out dissent..

  16. WEF can F O I wont comply to anything all these ripe asses come up with! I will plant fruits and veggies raise chickens ect.. even if it's illegal! What WEF is doing is illegal and seem to be getting away with it so why in hell should any single person in this world listen or follow the nonsense they are throwing at us?

  17. 9i would be for it but freedom is lost , and social scores everything you do can be invaded no more privacy , dangerous if it is in the wrong hands where peoples accounts can be shut off look at what is happening now in China they always use a great shinny term everyone would agree with until you bite into the apple to find out it is rotten, look at
    Much of the cash that Evergrande has been able to drum up has come from presold apartments that aren't yet completed. Evergrande has nearly 800 projects across China that are unfinished, and as many as 1.6 million people who are still waiting to move into their new homes, according to an estimate from Barclays. and the banks in china millions have lost there life savings , building buildings beyond the scope of filling them , trillions in loss by the end of what has happened, social scoring mass. surveillance no way

  18. This is a conspiracy theory…
    The same thing that you say will free us, is what will enslave us.
    Digital ID, add digital currency to that and put that in the hands of the government.
    Now the government will control every aspect of your life.
    Been a bad boy and talks smack against the supreme leader, Sorry they now have cancelled all your possibility to buy food for a week. Good luck.
    With the tracking of the ID all persons providing you with the simple meal, will get banned for the service to buy food as punishment.
    Or if you have bought to much to have for those bad times… The state now knows what you own, how much.
    They will also control if you are a good enough citizen to buy bus, plane or any other ticket you want, if you can get loans, own cars, bikes or what ever.

    What you say will make it harder to control you, is exactly the same thing that will imprison you.
    You will own nothing and be happy.
    And when you grow old, you have lived a good life and have to go and kill yourself.

    Its all on the pages to WEF…
    So stop kidding yourself, this is not a great escape, and it is not hard to do the great reset. Get people to belive its a conspiracy and its all good. And people like you make videos like this to try to think it is not as bad as it is…
    Because how long have people warned about the WEF?
    And all that they have said have more or less happened… So just stop lying to yourself.

  19. Unfortunately I just came across this video and it seems that Xi and Charlie were able to anticipate this, and it seems at this point that they have the collusion of our current administration to devalue the dollar and replace it with the Yuan

  20. At the end of WWII, the Communists threatened to do this very thing. It looks like they're doing their best to get it done. We have to get these guys out of our government. Both parties. And don't fall for the Republicans who are backed by the far left. We have to research who they are exactly and get them out.

  21. The politicians of the world are ignoring and circumventing the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Nuremberg Code, making those contracts powerless. The power lies not in documents but within the citizens of the world, the elites and governments of the world.
    The reality is that we the people are under attack. We are essentially already in World War 3. It is the governments and elites vs the citizens. We will see who is more powerful
