    Default Great Reset

    I thought there would be a thread on this, but there isn't. So here is one video on the topic, that some are frighteningly talking about as a good thing.

    "A man with a definite belief always appears bizarre, because he does not change with the world; he has climbed into a fixed star, and the earth whizzes below him like a zoetrope."
    ........ G. ........... K. ............... C ........ H ........ E ...... S ........ T ...... E ........ R ........ T ........ O ........ N ........


    "Having a clear faith, based on the creed of the Church, is often labeled today as fundamentalism... Whereas relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and swept along
    by every wind of teaching, looks like the only
    attitude acceptable to today's standards."
    - Pope Benedict the XVI, "The Dictatorship of Relativism"

    I think it's a good idea, in theory though I understand it gets a bad wrap from the religious and metaphysical community which are both conspiracy prone and less critically thinking prone. That said, critics have pointed out that while the ideas of the Great Reset sound good, it's liable to be empty talk and/or an opportunity for the ultra wealthy to multiply their wealth. In short, it's liable to be virtue signaling by the wealthy in order to satisfy consumers who are becoming more socially conscious. But anyone minimizing the existential threat of climate change is in for a rude awakening since facts really don't care about anyone's feelings.

    This shit is coming either way (with or without a "great reset") unless we get a grip on how to unseat the absurdly rich(and the masses of wannabe rich) and reform capital ownership. Subscriptions(read: renting/financing capital) and rent-seeking have always been ways people try to concentrate and control flows of as much money as possible without exposing themselves to too much risk. They are unavoidable to some degree, but the more top-heavy we become, the more it'll be like this.

    The Great Reset is an attempt to seize the moment of the COVID-19 crisis to build a better society, where “better” means three things:

    1) Greener
    2) More digital, and
    3) Fairer

    It is driven by a feeling that the financial crisis of the late 2000s was a missed opportunity: trillions of dollars were handed out in stimulus packages but nothing really changed, and no measures were taken to stop it all happening again.

    The main criticism is that it represents a socialist, globalist conspiracy for global control and dominance.

    In terms of the Great Reset we are dealing with two camps:

    1. The Utopians (Great Resetters) and
    2. The Pessimists (Critics of the Great Reset).

    The Utopians seem to suggest that a rosy future is ours if only we work together to take the right measures now.
    The Pessimists see only the privileged engaged in a Machiavellian-like plot to control our lives.

    The Great Resetters are not wrong to want to make society better. But their trust in centralized authorities and concentrations of power without very clear checks and balances is naļve about the human heart (aka the dark side)

    Meanwhile, the Critics are not wrong to be suspicious of control and concentrated power, but their cynicism stops their ears to the responsibility we all have to steward the natural and cultural worlds—a charge we cannot meet unless we work together in some form.

    Except you're quoting from Ben Shapiro
