The Great Reset is proceeding much faster than even the conspiracy theorists could have envisioned. The German Minister of Agriculture recently declared that citizens should accept hunger as the price of saving biodiversity and fighting climate change. (I am not making this up.) I would have thought we were five to ten years from being told to starve for Gaia. But as global governments take steps to deliberately reduce agricultural production (including the “Inflation Reduction Act” just signed by centrist, moderate president Joe Brandon.)
Imagine a global citizen of the mid or perhaps late 21st century; living in a 300-square-foot pod; having electricity only when the wind or the sun cooperate; with a universal basic income; fed on a diet of mealworms and crickets; perhaps drinking sewer water (because the BBC says “It’s good for the environment, so get over it.“) Imagine this THX-1138 of the Post-Reset future the World Economic Forum has planned somehow stumbles a few episodes of the Brady Bunch. Imagine his (or her, or whatever new possessive pronoun) shock at learning people at one time lived in spacious, comfortable houses. Imagine how utterly stunned they would be to see a large family prospering on a single professional income. Imagine how they would feel seeing that middle-class families once owned cars and were allowed to travel to Hawaii on jet planes. Privileges only the wealthy and powerful will enjoy in his time.
