Was COVID a black swan event? Some say yes, but why? A pandemic caused the entire world to shutter (and shudder), and new rules, regulations, and restrictions were imposed at a rapid rate. This has never happened before. Diseases have come and gone, but none have changed the world to this extent. What’s next?
I heard a podcast by a regular Ricochet podcast contributor, finance guru Carol Roth, on Glenn Beck this week; give it a listen. Everything circles back to The World Economic Forum. It seems too coincidental how so many things are falling into place: social, political, financial, environmental, economical (stakeholder capitalism anyone?) nutritional (I know – but check out the WEF’s plans for food) educational, medical (medical passports – and finally, one governmental ID to buy, sell, enter events, travel, etc.), even spiritual changes (censorship) that line up with the plans of the WEF’s Great Reset.
I think the next shoe to drop will be a financial one, and it will be more centralized government control. Is America the last Capitalist, free-market country in the world, or has it passed that point and is now a hybrid? A hybrid of what? Carol Roth details it. We know what Venezuela looks like, Cuba, Zimbabwe, and other countries that were once flourishing, productive, and prosperous. Is this an orchestrated effort to reduce control over our individual lives, through work (or lack of a universal income?), education, freedom, home ownership, small business entrepreneurship, online speech, employment, taxation, social justice, safety and law enforcement and many other aspects of our lives? Why aren’t post-COVID jobs being filled? Why are all industries struggling to find workers, and key materials still in such short supply (pay attention to the supply chains)?
The third shoe to drop, I think, will be the topic of climate change. The sun may be getting hotter, the earth may be going through a natural phase of warming, which has been documented throughout history (including periods of cooling), all-natural and out of our control. My theory is God is very pissed with the human race and Hell is making more room, but the message of the day will be that “humans” are to blame.
Too many babies, families, cars, homes. The Great Reset says their agenda for 2030 is, “You will own nothing and be happy”, as in renting. As we speak, hedge funds are buying up entire neighborhoods for double the price, outpricing the average buyer. Why?
This message showed up loud and clear, via Apple News on my cell phone this week with headlines like: “We are paying with our lives for the carbon someone else emitted” – a comment highlighted from responses about the UN’s Climate Change Report.
Forget Left, Right, Progressive, Conservative, or even (the paid-for) Radicals. The unelected are writing our future. Keep your eyes open – do your own research. Prepare accordingly.Published in
