ESSAY: Collateral Global. 'Covid-19, Utopianism, and the Reimagination of Society'
'Pandemic responses produced a malleable population ready to accept and actively encourage all manner of things that they would have resisted just two years ago'.
Includes WEF Great Reset.
Klaus Schwab World Economic Forum founder advocates for a biotechtopian future in his books 'The 4th Industrial Revolution' and 'Covid-19: The Great Reset'. He's on record saying governments have been penetrated to implement this policy. Young Global Leaders like Macron, Trudeau and Arden have tried to implement totalitarianism.
Winter Oak sets out the bizarre techtopian, dystopian ideas backed by big tech and bio tech corporations in his extensive analysis of Schwab's The Great Reset
A whole section of this book is devoted to the theme “Altering the Human Being”. Here he drools over “the ability of new technologies to literally become part of us” and invokes a cyborg future involving “curious mixes of digital-and-analog life that will redefine our very natures”. (38)
He writes: “These technologies will operate within our own biology and change how we interface with the world. They are capable of crossing the boundaries of body and mind, enhancing our physical abilities, and even having a lasting impact on life itself “. (39)
No violation seems to go too far for Schwab, who dreams of “active implantable microchips that break the skin barrier of our bodies”, “smart tattoos”, “biological computing” and “custom-designed organisms”. (40)
He is delighted to report that “sensors, memory switches and circuits can be encoded in common human gut bacteria”, (41) that “Smart Dust, arrays of full computers with antennas, each much smaller than a grain of sand, can now organize themselves inside the body” and that “implanted devices will likely also help to communicate thoughts normally expressed verbally through a ‘built-in’ smartphone, and potentially unexpressed thoughts or moods by reading brain waves and other signals”.
