New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the World Economic Forum (WEF) say COVID-19 is the “Great Equalizer,” and that anyone can be affected by the virus regardless of how smart, rich or powerful you are.
But nothing could be further from the truth.
COVID-19 is not an equalizer. In fact, the virus has actually worsened existing inequalities along gender, race and economic lines worldwide—all while the rich have grown richer. As the Inter Press Service (IPS) reports:
“Just as unemployed and uninsured Americans are pleading for support, the combined wealth of U.S. billionaires ‘surpassed $1 trillion in gains since March 2020 and the beginning of the pandemic,’ according to a study by the Institute for Policy Studies.
“The top five U.S. billionaires – Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett and Larry Ellison – saw their wealth grow by a total of $101.7 billion, or 26%, during this period.”
The powers that be are conspiring to use the pandemic as an excuse to ramp up their plans for a technocratic surveillance takeover that includes tightening control over our food and farming system.
This plan has a name. It’s called the “Great Reset.”
Introduced by the WEF and backed by influential leaders, activists, academics and institutions, the plan seeks to expand corporate control over every aspect of our lives.
“In the post-pandemic ‘Great Reset,’ there would not be much life left outside the technological-corporate nexus dominated by monolithic agribusiness, pharmaceutical, communication, defense and other inter-connected corporations, and the governments and media serving them.”
The “Great Reset” needs to be stopped in its tracks and exposed for the evil that it is.
What we need is a “Great Regeneration.” We need to scale up organic regenerative agriculture worldwide to create a food and farming system that:
• Promotes good health
• Regenerates and protects the environment
• Pays farmworkers fairly
• Boosts local economies
• Fights climate change
