Phase 2 of the Great Reset: War - By Dr. Joseph Mercola
As noted by historian and Scottish television presenter Neil Oliver in the video above, many feel like they’re stuck in an “existential battle between good and evil.” Perhaps you feel this “creeping malevolence” Oliver describes as well. We’re being hit with one crisis after another, but there’s nothing “organic” or natural about these crises.
They seem manufactured and intentional. The question on everyone’s mind is “Why?” Why would anyone intentionally create fear, destruction, hatred, misery and grief? To most people, such evil is unimaginable, and therefore they don’t want to believe it’s being done. Yet here we are — on the brink of world war.
Seeds of Hatred Are Being Purposely Sown
While the days of peace on earth have been few in the history of mankind, we’re now seeing an escalation in hatred and calls for violence and outright murder are being actively encouraged. Oliver points out that Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, has relaxed its hate speech policies in certain countries — but only as long as the hatred is directed against Russians.
While hatred against an attacker is normal, one day, the designated target for “justifiable hatred” may be you. One day, Meta may decide it’s OK to call for the death of all Christians. Or all Jews. Or all white people (actually, they’ve already done that). Or all unvaccinated people (they did that too). You get the gist.
So, the question is, do we continue to accept the idea of “justifiable hatred” — that it’s OK to hate and call for violence against any one group? Especially when we know the target group is decided by powers that ultimately seek to destroy us all?
As noted by Oliver, “We’re being manipulated as never before in history.” To refuse to acknowledge that you’re being manipulated puts you in a very dangerous place, as acknowledging that manipulation is taking place is the first step to develop resistance against it.
Right now, media, government and business leaders are fomenting hatred against Russian citizens, and even people with Russian-sounding names, who have nothing to do with Putin’s decision to go into Ukraine, and while it may feel “justifiable,” it’s dangerous in the extreme.
We just saw the same kind of rabid expressions of hatred against the unvaccinated less than a year ago. All of this hatred plays right into the hands of the technocratic elite that needs chaos and unrest in order to push their will on us. We simply must learn to resist these Pavlovian responses.
Phase 2 of The Great Reset
While Oliver does not make this connection, it seems clear to me that the drums of war are part and parcel of The Great Reset plan. The pandemic countermeasures and their devastating impact on the world economy was Part 1. War is Part 2. An anonymous correspondent recently wrote about this on WinterOak.org:1
“Welcome to the second phase of the Great Reset: war. While the pandemic acclimatized the world to lockdowns, normalized the acceptance of experimental medications, precipitated the greatest transfer of wealth to corporations by decimating SMEs [small and medium-sized businesses] and adjusted the muscle memory of workforce operations in preparation for a cybernetic future, an additional vector was required to accelerate the economic collapse before nations can ‘Build Back Better.’”
The article presents “several ways in which the current conflict between Russia and Ukraine is the next catalyst for the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset agenda, facilitated by an interconnected web of global stakeholders and a diffuse network of public-private partnerships.”
Changes to Supply Chains and the Global Workforce
For starters, supply chains of all kinds are being disrupted at an unprecedented level and pace by the war between Russia and Ukraine. Fuel shortages and inflation are also taking off. The anonymous author predicts that, as geopolitical tensions between the NATO alliance and the Sino-Russia axis continue, “a second contraction may plunge the economy into stagflation.”
Stagflation2 is an economic situation in which inflation and unemployment rates are high while economic growth slows. It’s a precarious dilemma for economic policy, because strategies that help lower inflation can also make unemployment worse. You can learn more about this in the March 10, 2022, Conversation article, “Why Stagflation Is an Economic Nightmare.”3
“Another recession will compound global resource thirst, narrow the scope for self-sufficiency and significantly increase dependence on government subsidies,” the anonymous Winter Oak writer states. Indeed, dependence on government is a clear goal of the global cabal pushing for The Great Reset. How else can the get people to give up sovereignty over their own bodies and lives?
Universal basic income is one planned strategy that will create dependency. It will also ensure we’re all equally poor and unable to threaten their monopoly on power and wealth. This is what they mean when they’re talking about making the world “fair and equitable.”
The Fourth Industrial Revolution
As noted in the Winter Oak article, a recurring theme in Klaus Schwab’s Fourth Industrial Revolution is the merger of man and machine. Technologies and scientific innovations will become extensions of our own bodies and minds. Augmented and cloud-connected humans are at the center of the next-generation workforce.
“Those spearheading the Great Reset seek to manage geopolitical risk by creating new markets which revolve around digital innovations, e-strategies, telepresence labor, artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology, the Internet of Things and the Internet of Bodies,” the anonymous writer notes.
“The breakneck speed in which AI technologies are being deployed suggest that the optimization of such technologies will initially bear on traditional industries and professions which offer a safety net for hundreds of millions of workers, such as farming, retail, catering, manufacturing and the courier industries.”
Indeed, examples of jobs that are being, or will be, replaced by AI include factory workers, telemarketers, bookkeepers, ad sales, customer support, receptionists, retail sales, cashiers, certain media positions, couriers and delivery jobs, security jobs, fast food workers, taxi drivers, farmers and certain medical jobs, including surgeons and lab technicians.4
“While it has long been anticipated that the increased use of technology in the private sector would result in massive job losses, pandemic lockdowns and the coming disruption caused by a war will speed up this process, and many companies will be left with no other option but to lay off staff and replace them with creative technological solutions merely for the survival of their businesses,” the anonymous writer states.
Sustainable Development Goals Taking Center Stage
The Ukraine war is also reducing Europe’s reliance on Russian energy, thereby reinforcing the urgency of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, a plan that is absolutely central to The Great Reset. In lockstep with the Great Reset, policymakers around the world are using the sanctions against the Russian energy sector to accelerate the transition to “green” energy.
On a side note, back in 2011, the HuffPost actually published an article debating whether nuclear war might be helpful for reversing global warming.5 And here we are in 2022, when war is being used to push the “green” agenda forward. Is it a coincidence? Or has war always been part of the plan?
According to HuffPost, NASA scientists had modeled the effects of war involving 100 Hiroshima-level bombs, the equivalent of 0.03% of the global nuclear arsenal. The researchers concluded that in such an event, “5 million metric tons of black carbon would be swept up into the lowest portion of the atmosphere,” resulting in global cooling.
A “small-scale war” might lower the global temperature an average of 2.25 degrees F for two to three years. Tropical areas might see a drop in temperature between 5.4 and 7.2 degrees F.
While the Green New Deal may sound attractive (who doesn’t want a pollution-free world?), ultimately, it’s all about creating a control system in which the world’s resources are owned by the richest of the rich, while the rest of the population can be controlled through the allocation of those resources, including energy. As explained in the Winter Oak article:
“Under such an economic construct, asset holding conglomerates can redirect the flow of global capital by aligning investments with the UN’s SDGs and configuring them as Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) compliant so that new international markets can be built on the disaster and misery of potentially hundreds of millions of people reeling from the economic collapse caused by war.
Therefore, the war offers a huge impetus for the governments pushing the reset to actively pursue energy independence, shape markets towards ‘green and inclusive growth’ and eventually move populations towards a cap-and-trade system, otherwise known as a carbon credit economy.
This will centralize power in the hands of stakeholder capitalists under the benevolent guise of reinventing capitalism through fairer and greener means, using deceptive slogans like ‘Build Back Better’ without sacrificing the perpetual growth imperative of capitalism.”
Food Shortages Are a Boon to Synthetic Food Industry
The war in Ukraine and the Russia’s decision to block exports of fertilizer and food crops will also create food shortages, and this too plays right into the Great Reset plan. In recent years, we’ve been urged by Great Reset front men like Bill Gates to stop eating real meat, and switch to synthetic lab-grown meat instead. Of course, Gates is invested in these fake food technologies.
Making people reliant on patented synthetic food will benefit the globalists in more ways than one. People will get sicker, and hence more reliant on government aid. They’ll be dependent on food produced by monopolies and hence easier to control. And, over time, as people forget how to grow and raise food, the ability to control the global population will increase.
Sanctions Against Russia May Speed Up the Control Grid
Winter Oak also predicts that:6
“Russia’s exclusion from SWIFT (The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) foreshadows an economic reset which will generate precisely the kind of blowback necessary for corralling large swathes of the global population into a technocratic control grid.
As several economists have opined, weaponizing SWIFT, CHIPS (The Clearing House Interbank Payments System) and the U.S. Dollar against Russia will only spur geopolitical rivals like China to accelerate the process of de-dollarization.
The main benefactor of economic sanctions against Russia appears to be China which can reshape the Eurasian market by encouraging member states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and BRICS to bypass the SWIFT ecosystem and settle cross-border international payments in the Digital Yuan.
While the demand for cryptocurrencies will see a massive spike, this is likely to encourage many governments to increasingly regulate the sector through public blockchains and enforce a multilateral ban on decentralized cryptocurrencies.
The shift to crypto could be the dress rehearsal to eventually expedite plans for programmable money overseen by a federal regulator, leading to the greater accretion of power in the hands of a powerful global technocracy and thus sealing our enslavement to financial institutions.
I believe this war will bring currencies to parity, therefore heralding a new Bretton Woods moment which promises to transform the operation of international banking and macroeconomic cooperation through the future adoption of central bank digital currencies.”
As if on cue, the White House, March 9, 2022, issued an executive order on “Ensuring Responsible Development of Digital Assets.”7 According to this order, technological advances in digital assets have “profound implications for the protection of consumers, investors, and businesses, including data privacy and security; financial stability and systemic risk; crime; national security; the ability to exercise human rights; financial inclusion and equity; and energy demand and climate change.”
“Inconsistent controls” to defend against risks — which run the gamut from system integrity and crime prevention to financial inclusion and equity, and combating climate change and pollution — now “necessitate an evolution and alignment of the United States Government approach to digital assets.”
There’s also the potential for a cyber attack on critical banking infrastructure, which would result in a global demand for increased cyber security. This, again, is precisely what the technocratic elite want and need, as it would facilitate the introduction of digital identity and the surveillance network that goes along with it.
The Rise of Global Technocracy
According to the Winter Oak author, the economic implications of the Ukraine war may be so disastrous they may necessitate the financial shortfall with injection of private capital, and this “will effectively render the traditional separation of powers between central banking institutions and governments obsolete.”
Central banks will then be in a position where they can disproportionally influence the economy of entire nations, effectively undermining national sovereignty. In short, this situation would enable a global technocracy to take over and monopolize the global decision-making process.
Fear Is the Tool of Tyrants
As noted by investigative journalist Whitney Webb in her March 2, 2022, article, “Ukraine and the New Al Qaeda,”8 the war in Ukraine appears to be the manifestation of a CIA “prophesy” pushed over the past two years, which predicted that “a ‘transnational white supremacist network’ with alleged ties to the Ukraine conflict will be the next global catastrophe to befall the world as the threat of COVID-19 recedes.”
In short, the Ukraine-Russia conflict may be “the opening act for the newest iteration of the seemingly endless ‘War on Terror,’” Webb writes. This, again, goes back to the technocrats’ need to manufacture justifications for the implementation of a Great Reset.
They need us to live in fear, because a fearful people will willingly give emergency powers to leaders, who in turn will take your rights away from you “for your own safety.” Over the past two years, even our right to speak our minds has been taken from us, and people who counter the official narrative have been identified as “the No. 1 domestic terrorist threat.”9
Our governments have turned neighbor against neighbor, parent against child and friend against friend. Every time we give in and adopt their hateful rhetoric as our own, they win and we lose. They win by pitting us against each other, because if we hate and fight each other, we won’t hate and fight them — and they know it.
