Serious Left-Static Negativist
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."

"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.
