The same globalists who have been supporting and promoting the tyrannical Covid agenda are also driving the world toward a global food crisis and famine. The recent dramatic increases in food prices together with shortages of baby formula and other foods are already pointing to a looming food crisis, and even the prospect of famine. In certain parts of the world, famine is not merely a prospective future to be feared but a present reality that is being experienced now. In Yemen, Sudan, Ethiopia, Burundi, Eritrea, and other countries, millions of people are already dying of starvation, and tens of millions more face the same fate. This comes on the heels of the Covid-19 pandemic and, in fact, it turns out that much of the food crisis and starvation is the result of government policy responses to the virus. The famine death spiral is being hastened by the Covid lockdowns and mandates that disrupted planting and harvesting cycles, destroyed crops and livestock herds, bankrupted crucial businesses, and crippled supply chains.
The 2020 global outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic profoundly changed human society throughout the world. Political leaders and bureaucrats aided by the media have used — and continue to use — fear of a virus from Communist China to push our entire planet into a regimentation that has set us marching toward a totalitarian future that increasingly resembles the Orwellian horror of that regime. Constitutional and traditional restraints on government powers have been swept aside by government edicts claiming to be based on “public safety and health” imperatives to protect us against an “existential threat” — from a virus that has proven thus far to be no more deadly than the common flu. In fact, as many studies have shown, and as we have reported, many more people have died from the government-prescribed “cures” than have succumbed to the virus itself. And the recent relenting by various governments on their draconian mandates (as welcome as those are) have not returned us to the status quo ante; they have merely given us a breather until the next fear campaign for which they decide to impose a new wave of controls, supposedly to protect us against a dangerous new “variant.”
During the months that followed the initial viral outbreak, more and more people around the globe began to realize that there was something terribly amiss with the official narratives that were driving us toward medical dictatorship. Physicians, virologists, epidemiologists, biologists, and other scientists — many of whom are world-recognized authorities in their fields — were being censored and “canceled” for daring to challenge government policies as unscientific and harmful, for daring to challenge Anthony (“I represent science”) Fauci. But, despite the censorship, the warnings by these courageous experts were leaking out and confirming the dire misgivings that the average thinking, freedom-loving layman already harbored in his soul. It was becoming daily more evident that Fauci “science” was transforming us — politically, socially, and economically — into a frightening replica of the Orwellian Beijing regime ruled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Apropos of this growing recognition, Covid is increasingly referred to as the “CCP virus,” a term popularized by The Epoch Times.
WEF: Globalist-Communist Convergence
For many observers, one of the most astonishing developments to accompany the CCP virus is the way in which leading “capitalists” have enthusiastically embraced and praised China’s totalitarian “solutions” to the pandemic. Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Ray Dalio, BlackRock, Goldman Sachs, Blackstone, Carlyle, Citibank, and other Wall Street behemoths and their corporate clients have happily cheered on the Covid bandwagon. Of course, as “essential” businesses they have prospered mightily during the pandemic while their smaller, less-politically-connected competitors have been crippled or wiped out.
The convergence of the Western corporate elites with the CCP elites was no surprise to readers of The New American, since we have been chronicling this phenomenon in these pages for the past several decades. However, with the onset of the Covid pandemic, the world has witnessed the globalists even more openly embracing the communists and their despotic ways. This was brought to the fore in the summer of 2020 during the June meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF), with the announcement of their plans for “The Great Reset.”
The WEF confabs have been notorious for decades as gatherings of the world’s richest plutocrats and autocrats luxuriating in opulent splendor while feigning concern for the world’s poor and excoriating the world’s middle classes for their alleged overconsumption and pollution. Dictator Xi Jinping and other CCP officials are honored participants at WEF gatherings and even chair WEF programs and author WEF reports. With the Great Reset, the WEF grandees formally presented their CCP-style plan to “reset,” i.e., transform, all humanity — politically, socially, economically, biologically, morally, spiritually — along Marxist-Leninist lines.
Klaus Schwab, WEF founder and frontman for the globalist elites, explained that “the pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.” He insisted that he and his fellow WEF demigods were seeking this unprecedented power to remold the world only “to create a healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous future” for all. Yes, trust us, give us unlimited control of everything and we’ll fix it all; we guarantee it! You’ll be SO happy! In fact, one of the signature promises, as presented in a now-infamous WEF video, states, “By 2030, you’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy.”
The WEF billionaires will still own their private jets, super-yachts, and mega-mansions, and will continue their globe-trotting champagne-and-caviar lifestyles, of course, but you will be “happy” with whatever government-provided necessities may be rationed to you. That’s an order! Moreover, the WEF global overlords insist that your happiness will include going vegan (except for eating bugs — very tasty and nutritious, you know), drinking recycled sewage water (very eco-friendly), giving up your car (mass transit is so much more efficient), and chipping your brain (welcome to the Borg — WEF’s transhumanism will help you). This would read like the ludicrous script for a Grade B movie except that it is being proposed and forcefully pushed by some of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful individuals. Klaus Schwab sounds and looks like a classic James Bond movie villain, but he represents the global titans of Big Business, Big Finance, Big Tech, Big Government, and Big Royalty. Britain’s Prince Charles, one of the most fanatical royals in the enviro-zealot lobby, addressed the WEF gathering to help launch the Great Reset by emphasizing “the interdependence of all living things.” “We have a golden opportunity to seize something good from this crisis. Its unprecedented shockwaves may well make people more receptive to big visions of change,” he added. The super wealthy prince has been making similar pronouncements for decades, advocating more spartan regimens for the common folk, but he has not changed his own lavish lifestyle. Ditto for the rest of the WEF’s Great Resetters. (See video on their breathtakingly blatant hypocrisy.)
