The year 2020 was a year of important tests for global politics and the world economy. The coronavirus pandemic has raised questions about how prepared the modern world-system and nation-states are for such global challenges.
On the one hand, global institutions (and the UN in particular) call for unity of all states in the fight against a common threat. On the other hand, the logic of the pandemic forces the closure of borders and the localization of production in order to ensure biological and food security under conditions of severed trade relations, as well as to keep the economy running. The creation of vaccines against COVID-19 did not lead to general cooperation, but to a geopolitical struggle between the USA, the EU, Russia and China as independent producers of the new vaccines. Rising powers like Turkey have also declared that they are developing their own vaccines.
However, the globalists, supporters of unifying the multipolar diversity of world civilizations, and the forces of global financial plutocracy have not abandoned the intention to impose their vision of the future on the world.
The Global Reset
The Global Reset is an initiative of the World Economic Forum, announced back in the spring of 2020. It was launched by Prince Charles of Wales and the head of the WEF, Klaus Schwab. The main idea is that it is necessary to rebuild the global economy. The essence of the reset (in economic terms) is a “coordinated” game-changing in global markets and a redistribution of national investments according to the plans spelled out by the WEF for building a “green economy. It is clear that this means the collapse of traditional industries and the super-enrichment of globalist high-tech corporations like Google or Tesla, which are trying to take the lead in the green economy.
In the political and social spheres, the goal is the “fourth industrial revolution,” of which Schwab is the most predominant preacher. In his own words, this industrial revolution means the rejection of the traditional understanding of man, the interpenetration of the mechanical and the human, the cyborgization and the formation of a new system of inequality determined by the ontological difference between the new posthuman beings and those who have failed to fit into the new world order.
According to the forum’s leadership, one of the positive aspects of the pandemic is that it has shown how quickly we can radically change the way we live.
Thus, the fear generated by the pandemic could be an important stimulus to push the globalist agenda. As Klaus Schwab’s statement on the Great Reset notes, it is good that “populations have overwhelmingly shown a willingness to make sacrifices.”
Behind the words of the new green and sustainable economy are plans to impose unprecedented changes on the world, in which only the world’s largest corporations will survive. Only the strong will be able to adapt to such large-scale changes. The WEF calls on the world’s largest companies to take responsibility for world development, “private-sector engagement every step of the way” as Klaus Schwab calls it.
In fact, it is an invitation to further integration of the largest transnational capital and state and transnational structures. The result could be the creation of transnational fascism. Understood from the point of view of Marxist theory, fascism is the dictatorship of the most reactionary part of monopolistic capital.
In this case, it is possible that in the future only the super-giants of industry will remain who will be able to survive the times of crisis by feeding on the remains of less successful competitors. Such a future looks like a Hollywood dystopia with multinational corporations running everything. But have these anti-utopias actually prepared us for such a future?
A special annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) will take place May 13-16, 2021 in Singapore.
Jacques Attali, the famous globalist theorist and mentor to French President Emmanuel Macron, predicted on French television in 1979 that a special health passport would appear in the United States and Europe in the future, affecting what a person would and would not have the right to do.
The concept of “immunity passport” is widely discussed in the UK and Europe. Despite attempts by British Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove to reassure the public and dispel “myths” about the widespread introduction of immunity passports, statements by his colleagues confirm that Jacques Attali’s dreams are close to coming true. Nadhim Zahawi, the British “vaccines minister” announced that the UK government is “looking at the technology” for immunity passports. Baroness Harding, head of National Health Service (NHS) Test and Trace declared that “in the future to be able to have a single record as a citizen of your test results and whether you’ve been vaccinated.” The UK’s NHS created a card for the people who have received the vaccine, calling them to keep the card with them everywhere.
The Danish Ministry of Health is also thinking of documents to separate vaccinated from unvaccinated people. Some provinces in Canada are also announcing plans to introduce immunity passports.
In Australia, the airline Qantas has already banned people without COVID-19 vaccination from boarding planes.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced that it will promote a special mobile app that shows people’s immunity to be mandatory.
NGO Privacy International (PI) says that immunity passports may become “a global identity document needed to live your life”.
Such measures lead to a new type of social inequality in society and the ostracism of the unvaccinated, that is to say, an infringement of the freedoms of those who for financial, medical or ethical reasons cannot vaccinate themselves with the COVID-19 vaccine. It also means creating new controls over the biological condition of every member of society.
In the US liberal outlets like The Washington Post promote the immunity passports as a way to an “open economy”.
Behind the plans for immunity passports are individuals such as Bill Gates, a well-known globalist and founder of Microsoft. The ID2020 Alliance has been working on the problem of global health passports for several years now. There are Accenture, Microsoft, Gavi, Rockefeller Foundation and IDEO among the founders of this initiative. ID2020’s Executive Director, Dakota Gruener, wrote a Harvard whitepaper about COVID-19 immunity certificates. In April 2020 Bill Gates called for use of digital certificates “to show who has recovered or been tested recently, or when we have a vaccine, who has received it”.
It is reasonable to expect that in 2021, immunity passports will be introduced in several countries, especially in the EU, the US, and the Anglosphere. The rights of those who are deemed to be dangerous to the health of others or who do not vaccinate will be severely restricted.
US president-elect Joe Biden said repeatedly that in the first year of his presidency he plans to gather a global summit for democracy “to renew the spirit and shared purpose of the nations of the Free World”. The proposed aims of the forum will be fighting corruption and authoritarianism, as well as promoting ideology of human rights. The new US leader wants to invite not only the leaders of sovereign states, but also various non-governmental organizations. Biden also plans to issue a Call to Action for the world business to participate more actively in democracy promoting. In fact, it is a call for direct interference in the sovereign affairs of other states under the guise of promoting democracy.
The US under Biden plans to regain its status as a global hegemon to determine the future of the world. The Global Summit for Democracy with the involvement of business will be one of the tools to return this leadership. The largest US high-tech companies will increasingly behave as part of a single machine where global business and the state have fused indistinguishably.
That is why Biden urges global corporations, especially tech companies and social media giants “to make their own commitments” to global democracy.
On the other hand, it is no secret that Big Tech insiders are actively infiltrating the future Biden administration.
In 2021 we should expect the activation of the globalist lobby which will try to rely, above all, on the democratic administration of the United States. States will have to face new forms of pressure and subversion, especially in cyberspace. New forms of global regulation and governance will be actively promoted in the name of allegedly fighting epidemics and ecology. Ordinary citizens in Western countries, first of all, will feel new forms of freedom restrictions: and all this will be carried out in the name of democracy.
