The Great Reset: More COVID-19 Or The Environment

by: Jans Jansen
the great reset  more covid 19 or the environment | Upload

Well, we are a year into the COVID-19 turmoil worldwide, and the big question will be; when will it end? To give you an idea of the outcome, it will not end!  At least not the effects of all the measures taken worldwide and the direct and indirect consequences of COVID-19. The second article gets published on the 28th of February 2021.

The Great Reset: More COVID-19 Or The Environment

Back to normal!? Better to write back to an environment which we all knew? Forget about it! But was that a good one? How many people suffered while some people in rich countries had a good life! Wasn’t it that some people in rich countries had a good life because resources got plundered abroad! The environment raped! Wasn’t it that many people in rich countries - or some called it developed countries - could wear the latest fashion made by people who worked long hours for a little money!? Yes, they didn’t die, but neither could they improve their lives.

Our new inventions like electric cars use batteries where minerals get used, obtained by slave labor!? And the steak on your plate or your pork cutlet wasn’t that because of the intensive livestock farming where animals get fed by soya! And how could we import such a large amount of soya to feed our livestock because, in countries like Brazil, they cut down a hectare every minute of tropical forest to grow soy or to keep cattle by themselves so we can have our steaks.

The Environment: You Want To Go Back To Normal?

I could go on for hours, but the above is enough to ask the question; do we want to go back to ‘normal’? We were so happy during somewhere halfway 2020 that the air suddenly was so clean, and in Italy, Venice, the canals were blue again, and dolphins were happily playing.

It may be clear that we have to rethink our lives. We have to stop the inequality, the raping of resources, polluting our nest! We need a great reset, But how!

We could start to live a more simple life again. Some say that if we live the life standards we had in the fifties and sixties, we would have enough resources. At that time, products got made to last a lifetime. So Western countries need to cut down on most they mine, produce, use, grow to give developing nations the chance to build up. In combination with current techniques for generating energy, keeping livestock in an environmentally friendly way, eat less meat, less unhealthy food, etc., we could already make a big step forwards.

We would pay everybody such a wage that people could have adequate access to healthcare, education, clean water, good nutritious food, grown and reached with care for the environment, the animals, and people.

Politics would have one, only one goal: your wellbeing!

More COVID-19 Or The Environment

The COVID-19 crisis is a nasty thing, but we seldom hear our politicians talk that one of the reasons we have this COVID-19 crisis is because we have plundered nature, so animals (bats) are losing their natural habitat and come nearer area’s where people live. We eat unhealthy food. Many have high blood pressure, are obese, and have heart problems. Others have bad lungs because of bad habits and polluted air.

And if it is about the people who are tested positive for COVID-19, the test has about an 8% falls negative, and a 23 to 30% falls positive outcome. Why do so many people have to stay at home? First, it was said that herd immunity was the holy grail. Now it is the jab!

The policy and solution are now to stick a needle in your arm, inject a manipulated substance in your body, and ready we are again to rape the environment, fly again so we can travel and pollute, and…!

COVID-19 And Vaccines

The vaccines are hardly tested, based on a new technique from which no one has any idea how it will work out in the middle- and long term. But the mantra is; the vaccine will free us from the evil COVID-19.

And let’s be honest, you only read in the papers and hear on the news how many people have died or got infected by COVID-19. You hardly read what kind of underlying sickness these people already had, their age, their lifestyle. The fact that we have cut back on healthcare in the last ten years. That we have fired so many well-educated healthcare workers, closed hospitals, and held back people to have proper health insurance. Of course, the last applies to countries with a healthcare system. And for the countries which hardly have any healthcare system, the rich countries made it impossible to let them buy the vaccine against COVID-19 (for what it’s worth), so most people in these countries can not be vaccinated.

Colonialism 2.0 comes to my mind!

More COVID-19

You like it this way -the old normal’ so go ahead. Live your last years in relative wealth and die sick and poor like so many wills because of this COVID-19 crisis, and the next problem will wait for you just around the corner.

The Great Reset

Let’s go for the first option, the environmentally friendly one. That will not be easy either, but first I will write to you about what is happening right under your nose! A great reset but probably not the one you expect! While the corona crisis keeps us busy, many 'background powers' are busy behind the screens and in full view of us with some 'unexpected' developments.

What is next is based on facts, not ideas, and I will list them below.

5G. At first sight, it sounds great—more internet speed, everything faster, more connected. But look at it more carefully. With 5 G, it is not only the increase in rate to download your movies used as a great sales story. It paves the way for autonomous cars, more robots, the internet of things (IT), and digital money, a new cryptocurrency.

  • AI (Artificial Intelligence) enters your home, your car, your hand. It’s here already!
  • Cameras. Cameras are there for your safety. But is the information collected really in safe hands?
  • Robots. Well, robots are convenient for tedious, repeating actions. But they also can replace people with more exciting jobs.
  • You will get a guaranteed income from the government. That sounds great, but if you think about it, it is maybe less convenient. It makes you dependent on the government.
  • Cryptocurrency. Every ‘coin’ you receive or spend will be tracked and recorded. 'people and systems follow you everywhere you make a money transaction. Spending gets compared with your earnings. People will know your preference for brands, food, what you eat, how it influences your health, including your smoking and drinking habits. Your health insurance bill will depend on the last.
  • Total dependence on electricity. What will happen when there is a power cut? You can’t pay, you can’t go by elevator. Water pumps don’t work; the food in your fridge spoils.

The Great Reset

The above reset is on its way, and it will go faster than everybody thinks. If you visit China, you have a good chance you can’t pay anymore with US dollars, euros, or other currency. You will have to pay with your phone; cameras will follow every step you make, and if you are Chinese, a points system will calculate based on your behavior if you still can get certain benefits.

You can read what this all could implicate for the world, behind these developments, and the next story's alternatives. It will be our choice. Let we above happen or let these people and organizations know that a more environmental, healthier, and wellbeing is the direction to go.

The next article will be published on the first of February 2021.
