Coming across a lot of keyboard warriors lately. They have slogans. They have faith in what they say, they genuinely believe in what they do. They are positive they know what is good for me and you. They stubborningly think they know best. Perhaps they are right, maybe their plot we should accept and forget about the rest.

I don’t blame them. I even like some of them. I like dystopian stories too, I have even written quite a few of them. The thing is that they are just that...stories..... Digital revolutionaries, conspiracy theorists groups can be attractive especially when the alternative choice is weak or barely worth a look. The theories they steward are elaborated and they would even make sense as they are always well presented. I dare say you could almost be tempted in believing in some of them. Even without proof that would make it so comfortable and easy to accept wouldn’t it.

I am no intellectual or a scholar in fact I am not the brightest button on the coat but this is not the first time in history that we are confronted to catastrophic events. We have not always reacted in unexpected ways but we have very often created urban myths. If anything else the current pandemic should teach us humility. Mankind has become very arrogant but like many other animals on this planet we are mere guests. We don’t own the place we get to live on it. Personally I just think nature has just sent us a reminder of how insignificant we are in the overall cycle of life.

We can implore our made up gods, build myths hoping to make sense of the mess we got ourselves into but this ain’t going to lead us anywhere. We are a self obsessed species who believe in the utopia of controlling our ecosystem. Fascinating though than anything from rednecks, structured fascists groups and other right wingers almost all converge to the same point than anarchists, Antifa or anti-system opponents.

Many firmly believe in the great reset whatever the fuck that is, they denounce social media and internet manipulation on internet by mostly citing or providing links or sources from internet.

many thanks Don for sharing your thoughts on an all too rare appearance on this platform. I agree there is no plan because we dont know what we dont know.....

Adapt. Pivot. Reinvent. Re-imagine. None of these attributes are unique 2020 but a constant in humanity. Unfortunately it appears that many are pivoting to some mid-19th century approach to life where there's a master plan. There's no plan. Just hope that at some point we all recognize the necessity for decency, dignity and respect...all of which are in very short supply on social media and in many other locations. However, there are a few beacons that may light the way. Thanks for sharing Pascal Derrien

thanks Ian Weinberg it is and will probably the only time I will speak about it like you I am more focused on protecting pockets of decency and humanity when I come across them. What goes around comes around :-)

Great to see most of the gang still breathing and kicking on beBee. Another gem Pascal Derrien I'm a little maxed out from all the Covidding and resetting. I've also lost faith in most of the 'experts'. At this time I derive meaning purpose and gratification from cherishing and sustaining the inter-human connection whenever and wherever it occurs. I have faith in the best of human decency and commit to keeping that flame alive. Ultimately the dark side of humanity destroys itself. As we say in Africa 'Amandla' : Forward - onwards and upwards!

Oh, and I deliberately left a paragraph out of the piece. It's still missing a sentence, but you catch the drift: "I cannot write or speak openly about this for fear of being sacked. My university is up to its ears with the B&M Gates Foundation, never mind direct links to Pharma etc..."

It would a great feature for beBee if we could define a custom metric for each Bee, so as to approximate the relevance factor of each post. This can be a function of the Bee who posts it, the Bees who comment on it (or find it relevant), and the similarity to other posts the Bee at hand values. For example, the fact that several Bees I respect have commented on this article, the fact that many of them have found it relevant, and the similarity of this article to other articles I've enjoyed would make it a likely relevant article for me. So even if I didn't notice it at first, beBee could recommend it to me (and many others), thereby increasing its exposure and benefiting Pascal too. Cheers

"Mankind has become very arrogant but like many other animals on this planet we are mere guests." Agreed! Being arrogant and self-destructive, humans are the most dangerous threat to humanity...with a little help from bad science and technology. :( You gave us food for thoughts, as always.

Nah, Pascal, back in 1989 I was too busy watching “Neighbours”, “Flying Doctors”, or “Home and Away”. Didn’t have time to be interested in changing the world, comrade.

reovolution on TV do you remember that the romanian revolution was televised Ken ? I will get the alarm clock for you :-)

Hey, Pascal, this brings to mind “Revolution” by the Beatles. Also makes me wonder if the ‘revolution’ will be televised, in which case, like so very many other current news items, would you please wake me up when it’s over and the fat lady has sung?

absolutely agree with what you are eloquently saying Harvey Lloyd especially the global scale factor but other wise it is almost ''business as usual''

The Great Reset. AHHHHHHH. I dont need to read anything to know what this means. Humanity since time began always, every time and anytime will form hierarchies. This naturally occurs as wisdom, skills and resources allow humanity to operate efficiently. No you cant stop it. I need a high IQ doctor to heal me, i also need great factory workers to build products i can by, etc... The great reset is nothing but fixing the fact that those at the top have forgotten about those at the bottom. The irony is, those that have some grand plan for everyone else, they believe they live outside the pyramid they are fixing. Once the pyramid is smashed to two dimensions the civilization process merely restarts building the pyramid. Every civilization has faced this moment in their bell curve. Usually about 200 years in. This time though it is many nations on the curve. The top of the pyramid does not fall easily. Especially now that the top is global. The great reset and many other doctrines of governance are showing up to battle the 1%. Whoever they declare those folks to be. The 1% are the Jews of Nazi Germany, The Israelites of Babylon or the Greeks of Persia. An ideal, set as the reason for suffrage and the need to destroy the cause. All in the name of advancing society. I cant say it much better than you. The great reset is an idiot that thinks they know best for you.

Agreed. Pascal Derrien i try and use critical thinking as these styled events happen. But it is easy to get caught up in”picking a side”. Both sides have merits that require addressing and should be addressed. The wall of rhetoric is so high though i may as well be hollering this message to you from the back porch. There are some easily unbiased observations though. In most countries the “Administrative Government” is growing. Departments and agencies of bureaucrats that get legislation open ended for them to write policy. A little known clause in most US States Governors duties “Health and safety” has been expanded to include Marshal Law activities with no legislative support. Some States and some counties within states are making proclamations of non-support for various “Health and safety” measures. Enough to be significant. The right of self determination has been reduced by health and safety considerations. As an observer we can say with certainty these things are happening. Are they good or bad is left to the observer. Identity groups are drawing up skirmish lines, making demands and gathering resources. Never a good sign. Looking at the time bell curve here, i believe these statements of observation place humanity on the backside. Gaining momentum.

I have no problem with that Jim albeit it will probably be the only post of this kind on that topic . No I dont write for those guys I dont even think they know me not that they should :-), I have checked the site though I find it very cluttered and not overly intuitive but the articles in there were pretty good.

It's hard not to espouse your beliefs here on social media. But you have to be careful that you firm in those beliefs and willing to defend them when challenged. Interesting post. BTW are you writing on

Well, if you want to learn more about the GR (whatever the hell that is), why not go to the book that was written about it, by the guy who spearheads the whole project? Here is the reference to it, since apparently URLs aren't are as reliable for some people: Klaus Schwab, Thierry Malleret, "COVID-19: The Great Reset", Forum Publishing, July 2020. Cheers!
