All Roads Lead to an ESG-Driven Great Reset World Where You Own Nothing, Not Even Your Own MoneyAustin Roe
The threat of the Great Reset has been looming for the past few years, and I have written about this in great length as a problem/solution primer you should really check out if you have not. The article is called “How the Covid-19 Pandemic is a Smokescreen For BlackRock’s Plan to Collapse the U.S. Economy With Help by the U.S. Federal Reserve and Force Worldwide Digital Currency” Sadly, we should expect to see additional smokescreens used to push forward on this globally financial system. What I mean by that is that circumstances will be created, urged, or manufactured where having a digital currency would (seemingly) “save us.” It is the same Founding Fathers warning of trading security for convenience and getting neither.
Case in point is the highly under reported backlog of the U.S. IRS’s unprocessed tax returns, some going as far back as 2019. Who is to blame? Why Covid-19 of course.
- 24 million tax returns are still waiting to be processed, from last year.
- Productivity plummets because thousands of tax processors are still working from home giving Covid-19 as the excuse. The tax industry relies on paper forms which cannot be processed remotely over computers.
- Many file digitally but 17 million still file the paper 1040 forms.
- Many tax payers have replied to letters contesting the IRS’s claim of ‘failure to file,’ only to have those response letters ignored by the IRS. “They’re sitting on somebody’s desk who cannot come into the office,” said Nina Tross, executive director of the National Society of Tax Professionals.
I am expecting a digital currency to pushed in the very near future as the savior to all our tax return backlog problems. In fact, President Biden has already signed an Executive Order to research the creation of a U.S. based digital currency, but the U.S. is hardly the only one. Canada has a joint project with MIT to create a digital currency for the Canadian Dollar. There is already pilot projects in the works for the Bahamas, Nigeria, and Jamaica which began last year. As Zero Hedge reported,
“Dozens of others are not far behind, including the US, UK and the entire Eurozone. Sweden’s “e-Krona” is currently in the testing phase. Joe Biden has called research into CBDCs a matter of “highest urgency”.”
The Ukraine war has provided the perfect excuse/cover/smokescreen for countries to urgently push their projects for a digital currency harder than ever before. Russia was developing a “digital ruble” even before the Ukraine invasion as a monetary vehicle to bypass sanctions. China has been leading the race to digital currency for the same reasons.
So what is the harm of using a CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency)? CBDC is the perfect example of trading privacy for convenience. Agustin Carstens, General Manager of the Bank of International Settlements gleefully stated:
“We don’t know, for example, who is using a $100 bill today, we don’t know who is using a 1000 peso today. A key difference is with the CBDC is the Central Bank will have absolute control on the rules and regulations that will determine the use of that expression of central bank liability and also we will have the technology to enforce that.”
CBDC can be programmed and controlled and governed by whatever government entity countries wish. Do you trust your government to make those decisions wisely? I sure don’t. This includes the ability to buy food, donate to an organization you support, or for your funds to be frozen in your bank account altogether. Canadians’ bank accounts being frozen by their government for even donating $5 should give you a great example of what this kind of control can do. The possibilities are truly frightening.
Another tyrannical arm in the Great Reset agenda is the push for ESG (“environmental, social, and governance factors”) scores. The scores are determined by you or your business’ making the “correct” (i.e. politically correct) decisions in all aspects of your life and personal expressions in the areas of the environment, social, governance.
Some of the factors that can decide your ESG scores are:
- Dietary choices (meat vs. vegan and how often, chocolate, etc.)
- Energy usage
- Transportation habits
- Attitude and outlook
- Environmental impact of your job or career choice
- Sustainable clothing choices
- Investing and investment
- Purchase of ethical goods (or purchasing them second-hand)
- Recycling habits
- Carbon footprint
- Personal contributions to betterment-random acts of kindness
- Composting practices, grow your own
A few years ago investment companies like Merrill Lynch have been adding ESG scores to their clients’ dashboards, so investors can decide based on this climate change carbon credit score so clients can decide which companies they would like to invest. The significants of these scores showing up in banks and investment companies is two-fold. (1.) The score hurts companies that are not towing the climate change carbon credit political line, and (2.) it is also a way to track investors who are NOT investing in companies that are vested in having a higher ESG score. If ESG scores were not significant at all then millions of dollars would not have been spent by these investment companies and banks to track this information. This ESG score tracking has began with businesses but it will not stop there. The goal of the World Economic Forum is for all people to have a Personal ESG score.
“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate [in the Great Reset], and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” wrote Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, in an article published on WEF’s website. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.” – Townhall
Imagine a world where your ability to spend your hard earned money was held in the hands of a global entity based on some completely subjective rating system, where whether you took out the trash or didn’t support a trending politician on your social media account. This is exactly what is happening in China TODAY, and that is what the ESGs and Central Bank Digital Currency will bring to the rest of the world. Every crisis, pandemic, war, protest, or any other uprising is trying to be steered toward this Great Reset goal. Question EVERYTHING, especially in areas where Progressives and Conservatives seemingly agree.
