Globalist economic mastermind Klaus Schwab1, founder of the World Economic Forum, and nefarious visionary, has released his fifth book2, and the sequel to “The Great Reset,” entitled “The Great Narrative.3” In his book Schwab discusses the necessity of humanity adhering to a “single great narrative”, promoting collectivization. While Klaus Schwab’s work is imaginative, and provides many thought provoking ideas, Klaus Schwab’s, and his World Economic Forum’s, influence on world leaders, intellectuals, philanthropists, billionaires, and oligarchs have begun materializing frightening correlations to his theories in modern practice, throughout societies worldwide.
With his first iteration, “The Great Reset”, Klaus Schwab discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic provided a once in a lifetime opportunity to reset society and the global economy. The Great Reset built on Schwab’s prior books, such as “The Fourth Industrial Revolution”, discussing humanity’s futuristic surveillance technology, which contribute to Schwab’s vision of “owning nothing and being happy.” His sequel “The Great Narrative” highlights the need for what Klaus Schwab refers to as “interdependence”.
“Narratives are how we make sense of life,” Schwab writes, “they provide us with a context, thanks to which we can better interpret, understand and respond to the facts we observe.”
“Most importantly, compelling narratives have the power to inspire us to act.”
The book, focuses on collectivization, calling for society to comply with the global regime’s single narrative, and advises the reader to “reject the doomsday mindset.” The book focuses on having a permanent COVID-19 mindset, instead of viewing the coronavirus as a pandemic, viewing it as a revolution to modern society, providing a utopian alternative to the same system offering a global one-party narrative.
Klaus Schwab quotes Robert Shiller, who he refers to as the “father” of ‘Narrative Economics’, citing “The human brain has always been highly tuned towards narratives, whether factual or not, to justify ongoing actions”
Klaus Schwab goes on to discuss placing tax on carbon emissions, incentivizing corporations to adhere to low-carbon technologies. Stating people on the “political right” are “more susceptible to disbelieve science and embrace conspiracy theories.” Schwab’s solution as stated in the book to what he calls “fake news”, is creating a mass narrative which the global population can feed from, perpetuating a curated information campaign. Klaus Schwab discusses the dual narratives between China & America, offering a mutual climate agenda, like The Great Narrative, as “the best possible outcome” towards a mutual understanding between both nations. Schwab’s book also cites political scientist John Mearsheimer stating,
“Most American do not recognize that Beijing and Washington are following the same playbook, because they believe the United States is a noble democracy that acts different from authoritarian and ruthless countries such as China. All great powers, be they democracies of not, have little choice but to compete for power in what is at root a zero-sum game.”
Klaus Schwab discusses the impacts of COVID-19, worsening conditions of inequality, highlighting that COVID-19 has permanently changed society in such a way that in over to move forward humanity must align with an individual narrative.
Earth’s populous blindly following a synthetic narrative at all costs, encourages the possibility of evolutionary deception, corruption, and other nefarious personal endeavors to exist within that narrative, benefitting most those placed power.
Schwab’s theory of all individuals following a single narrative closely resembles that of cults, brainwashing, mass formation psychosis, communism, oppression, and many other terms used to describe following a single one-party narrative. In America, “patriotism” is not expressed as a single narrative, but rather a declaration of independence, resistance to tyrannical oppressors, and acceptance of all nationalities, religions, and individuals. In America, those individuals have a right to privacy, and a right to separation between personal decisions,—which do not infringe upon the individual liberties of others—and the decisions of the state. Under The Great Narrative, individual liberty should be overruled by the demand for personal compliance towards a collectivist regime’s utopian ideology. Unlike the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), if the President of the United States of America, U.S. officials, or other American citizens disagree with a specific religion, political stance, or ideology, does not give them the right to censor another individual’s existence.
The Dangers of Collectivism
Collectivism enlists a population to follow and adhere to an individual’s personal utopia. Collectivism promotes societal division, a necessity for mass control. Those who conform their lifestyles to adhere to the collectivist ideology, feel as if those who resist are a threat to their own beliefs, and the entire system they have adhered to. In addition, many fear punishment themselves from the oppressive collectivist regime, as a result encouraging all to follow the great narrative. One narrative discussed in his book “drone surveillance to prevent deforestation” is an example of such dangers. Using the concern of serious issues, allows the implementation of totalitarian technologies. Although drone surveillance may help in preventing deforestation, footage can also easily be accessed for any conceivable newly found purpose, such as the implementation of a social credit system, and the enforcement of lockdowns.
Having no choice in society, being forced to participate in another human being’s agenda at the expense of your own individual will, is by definition “slavery.” In today’s society, events like the COVID-19 pandemic place higher emphasis on collectivization, working towards a common goal of mutual interest. However, at what point should the individual be allowed to determine their own decisions? In the case of the coronavirus, many personal choices were determined by the government, enforced by the citizens themselves.
In re-education facilities, as well in communist society, one of the strongest tools of control, are the prisoners, or citizens, themselves. This means less state enforcement is required, the oppressed relaying their confines to their peers, acting as extensions of the state. Society is delivered a great narrative reinforced through mass propaganda.
Discouraging meritocracy, collectivism ensures that all will suffer equally, while the creators of the design profit off the labor of the collective. Labor is seen as both a method of contributing back to society and showing your allegiance to the state’s utopia. Mao administered the notion throughout society, that silence was a display of resistance against the communist regime, a severely punishable offense. For this reason, all members of society were expected to show their compliance on a regular basis, in a multitude of different ways. Silence was seen as counter-revolutionary, and therefor was not an option. Could Klaus Schwab’s Great Narrative indicate the desire for globalization to engage in a similar tactic?
Mao vs Schwab
Mao Zedong believed in a constant revolution. Every year, a revolutionary movement was incited, consistently targeting direction the population towards a utopia. In the end, Mao was the only one who found utopia, as he had based society around his own desires towards what he considered prosperity. These same principles can be witnessed in all socialist-communist societies. A consistent one percent directs the totality of humanity. In America, that one percent in power is able to change, unlike communist regimes.
Thankfully, Klaus Schwab does not yield the immediate effect of power that Mao possessed and enacted against his own citizens. Similarly, Klaus Schwab makes high claims of his good intentions, seeking individual justice and civil rights, through the loss of individualism. Diverting one’s own personal goals, to conform to the ideology of a global society, is no better than what then was considered a Maoist revolution.
During Mao’s “Great Leap Forward”, China experienced a famine so severe, that after eating all the wildlife, and birds, citizens were reduced to eating leather, grass, tree bark, leaves, soil, and eventually forced to consume each-other in order to survive. Despite mass famine, death, arbitrary imprisonment, and mass executions, Mao Zedong gave out free copies of his “Little Red Book” to all Chinese citizens, calling for collectivist ideology to bring food and prosperity to all of China. This freely distributed copy of Mao’s words acted as organized propaganda fueled by the civilians themselves. It wasn’t until decades later, the citizens began to realize their actions were not improving their quality of life and conditioning, but horrifyingly that Mao’s Little Red Book had been contributory to their mass oppression. China today has many continuing human rights problems, social credit systems, and nefarious mass surveillance, working together with outside countries to bring China’s people greater prosperity.
Amid the COVID-19 hysteria, Klaus Schwab gave out free kindle copies of his book “The Great Narrative,” from January 7th - 10th, 2022. His book, calling for global collectivization, displays Schwab’s narrow vision of medical, scientific, and economic utopia. This literature reveals eerily similar ideologies to a one-party perspective proposed by communist regimes. Unlike collectivist societies, the entirety of humanity does not, and will never, see the future through the same lens. Diversity and originality, arguably allow the world to thrive, contributing to what we consider reality. Beyond the mutual agreement to follow the law, human beings in America choose which way—if any—that they would like to contribute to society. This is the “American dream” and something worth fighting for. The cost of individualism results in the loss of culture throughout society.
The Cost of Individualism
American censorship has provoked a “Digital Cultural Revolution4,” purging all dissent from view of public interpretation. In communist regimes, those in power are often so fearful of rebellion and resistance, that before public execution a prisoners’ larynx was cut to avoid acting as a martyr, promoting counter-revolutionary ideas throughout the community before their death. In modern society, the removal of dissident speech online has shown effective in the demonetization of resistance, aligning with the principles of a one-party narrative.
Digital censorship is the modern oligarch’s response to fear. Removing one’s viewpoint from a social media platform, simply because it doesn’t fit the narrative, normalizes discriminative thought-reform throughout American society. Freedom of speech, freedom of press, and freedom of religion include freedom of thought. The modern regime of digital suppression now encourages self-censorship, aligning social media more with a single narrative form of mass propaganda, than a platform to distribute and discuss individual thoughts and ideas.
Despite the narrow-minded viewpoint and omission of individualism from the entire concept of the Great Narrative, one of key quotes from Klaus Schwab’s book, can be applied to more than just a single narrative or viewpoint:
“Narratives shape our perceptions, which in turn form our realities and end up influencing our choices and actions. They are how we find meaning in life.” - Klaus Schwab
I found the above quote inspiring, despite disagreeing with enslaving humanity to work towards an agenda, obtaining information about the meaning of life from one determined “reliable source”, within a single narrative. In my own life I rely on multiple perspectives, and viewpoints, in order to develop a better understanding of a subject, others, and my purpose and existence. To remove alternative perspectives simply because they do fit a great narrative, in my opinion, undermines the purpose of human existence.
“Going into 2022, we all look forward to a better future. Yet the challenges we are facing coming out of the pandemic are multi-fold and interconnected. The Great Narrative shows what the way forward could be, and what the role of cooperation, innovation, morality, public policies and business can be,” said Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum.
“This book is about ideas and how they may coalesce to form a Great Narrative,” said Thierry Malleret, CEO of the Monthly Barometer and co-author of the book. “It is also, and most importantly, about how some of these ideas may or should make their way into policy-and decision-making. They go beyond the realm of theory and are a call to action.”
The past two years of destruction to the global population has not only changed the state of the world, but it has also allowed tyrants to develop a one-party narrative, exhibiting an artificial facade of stability. The COVID-19 pandemic has given opportunity to individuals such as Klaus Schwab to develop an idealistic narration of utopia. This Great Narrative is the sequel to The Great Reset for a reason, it’s the socialist-communist endgame created as a safe haven from the disillusioned reality brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Should America, founded on individualism, adhere to a single one-party narrative? Forcing U.S. citizens to adhere to a specific narrative is anti-American, slowly weakening our national values. While many individuals may have beliefs which align, the freedom to determine your own purpose on this planet is one of the features that makes America the greatest country in the world. Power, like money, is not a gift which is often given back. Following collectivist ideology isn’t loaning your power, it is relinquishing it. Having a desire to control the will of another law abiding, equal individual, is the doorstep to malignity.
