THAT"S BECAUSE IT"S A LONG TERM PLAN, MAN! THESE LIBERAL FASCIST-COMMIE ALIEN SQUIRRELS HAVE THEIR OWN TIMETABLE, DON"T BE A SHEEPLE DUDE TAKE THE GREEN PILL!

:Tin-Foil-Hat: :Tin-Foil-Hat: :Tin-Foil-Hat:

Don't try logic, it bounces off the protective bozone layer. Because somehow a massive, ultrasecret government conspiracy to gain control of their freedom and track their every movement can only be exposed on Facebook (which explicitly tracks their movements and monetizes their thoughts by selling it to advertisers for profit). But fortunately they don't need to rely on the lamestream media when they can fall back on the internet experts(TM) revealing their truthy truths on blogs (that also include cookies that are used to compile your browsing history, so that can be monetized for targeted advertising).

Sigh. And I think I'm done with this thread.

Umm, can I have one of those cookies? I’m kind of hungry...

Somewhere between grand conspiracies and nothing-to-see is where the truth inevitably lies.

"Russian collusion" was fashioned out of bits and pieces, as was "deep state", as is "orchestrated vote fraud", as is "great reset".  The notion of self-organization among human endeavours - the "invisible hand" - is not limited to purely economic transactions.  Don't assume the existence of a grand conspiracy where the motivated actions of small groups, or mere individuals, suffices.

A mature response like this won’t be missed.  Adios.

#3 and #8 are directly at odds with each other.  Don’t you agree?

I didn’t make the video, ask the WEF.

Does that make the video irrelevant?

It originally came out right about the time HRC was guaranteed to win the election.  Apply some critical thought and evaluate the constellation of objectively discernible facts, and maybe you find you have more questions.   

Or maybe it’s just a coincidence and you believe everything you’re told.

The reason the video is being discussed at all is because you seem to be suggesting it’s evidence of some sort of secret, shadowy agenda, in line with what various Internet conspiracy theorists are claiming this ‘great reset’ represents. You presented theoretical prognostications as evidence of this, when it’s not. Let’s not lose track of how this came about, nor of the context of this thread- that being the current LPC government of Canada. Forcing those couple of puzzle pieces awkwardly together along with your prior replies, including you specifically highlighting “abolition of private property”, suggests you think we should fear that that’s something our government/current PM are inclined to try to force through.

What I see you doing here is failing to distinguish between some things that are objectively likely and based on reasonable things - like changes in how energy is generated, and a recognition of the need to better protect the environment - and the much wackier stuff that the collective craziness of the internet has attached to them. “The great reset” has become a dog whistle for a bunch of really outlandish stuff, and any entry into a discussion that comes with that label attached should attract skepticism.

I don’t have any issue with the WEF publishing the video as they deem appropriate, to make their own point(s).

I was asking you about some of their inconsistencies, because I inferred from your reference that you concurred with their position and that it supported your position that there was merit to a Great Reset being implemented by numerous Western nations.

QV said:
One video the WEF put out illustrated their 8 predictions for 2030.  The first prediction: "You'll own nothing, and you will be happier.".

They removed that vid from their webpage, but you can find it if you search. 

There is more to this than merely fresh economic policies.

Edit:  Here is that vid:  newtube.app/user/Grizzly_Patriot/eMt7y19?u=t
Follow the link at your own peril, it worked for me.

Do you not agree with WEF’s case presented in their video?  If not, then what would you propose to reinforce your position that a Great Reset is underway?

Brihard it was stated the Great Reset was a myth. I pointed out it wasn’t a myth, that it’s an idea that exists and showed you even Canadian institutions were talking about it. I also showed you where the WEF hypothesized about “no private property ownership”.  These aren’t dreams, these are real ideas from real influential organizations. Draw your own conclusions.  You sure make a lot of overzealous accusations about what I think, have fun with that. 

G2G, I’m not sure how to unpack that statement. Why would you ask me about WEF’s video inconsistencies as you see them? That makes no sense. Secondly, you make incorrect inferences. Again, I pointed out this video and the bank of Canada link as evidence the great reset isn’t a figment of some conspiracy theorists imagination.  They’re real ideas from real organizations. Whether I agree with the WEF is irrelevant.

As a gun owner I don't doubt there is a desire in this government to create a "Great reset", because part of that is on the backs of people like me who are getting royally screwed back in the 90's and again right now. With a Biden POTUS to give him political cover <DS edit to comply with site policy on political posts> and his merry followers are going to drive this country into a fiscal blackhole chasing unicorns and only a select group will profit. This government is all about fluff, social status, colourful socks, nice hair and empty promises. Will he try to "Reset" Canada to some sort of vision, yes. Will he succeed, likley not, but what will be left is a steaming trainwreck that is going to take 3-4 Prime Ministers to fix.

If that’s the case, then I don’t understand why you referred to it in the first place.  So to confirm, it has no relation to your own view on The Great Reset?

Venezuelan real estate is pretty cheap, I hear. Might be worth a punt.

There's an economist peddling this idea that the Government can just print more and more money because we owe it to ourselves.

Then Paul Wells wades in on his critique of both the Liberals and Pierre Poilievre.

Incorrect. I described it rather more dismissively than that, but in the context of it being largely a conspiracy theory typical of the nonsense that spreads in the internet’s echo chambers. I then further addressed the glaring differences between reality, and the inane theories that have built up around and largely dominated the term.

Which "facts" are you referring to??  The article and video were put together by various people in the WEF.  Most (if not all) of the "predictions" are hypothetical and/or opinion pieces.

Not sure why I would move to a Socialist paradise to avoid our Champagne Socialists. Plus Venezuelans can't cook, make the Brits look good in that respect.

Maybe not the world's greatest cooks, but they win the international beauty contests.  :)

Not many of us will be getting the champagne.  If I'm going to live in a Global Socialist Paradise, I'd rather live in one where I won't get press ganged into civic snow shoveling crews for half the year. 

*EDIT* I better add this before the bullets fly :D
