Climate campaigners and international bureaucrats would like to make emergency responses to COVID-19 permanent.
They call it “The Great Reset.” CFACT calls it their latest ploy to curtail individual freedom and grab wealth and power for themselves.
Marc Morano has issued a Climate Depot Special Report that surveys the latest radical push to restructure our economy and lifestyles.
The COVID-19 lockdowns and suspension of liberties have only emboldened climate campaigners to achieve their progressive vision of having “the masses” lives planned, monitored, and controlled for their “safety” — all in the name of “science.” The very real threat of oppressive rule by unelected experts in government is now threatening to engulf the world due to the ongoing COVID lockdowns and “phased reopenings.”
Here’s a sample from the report of what the “resetters” are saying:
- The virus has given us an “opportunity” to pursue “equality & sustainability.” Klaus Schwab, Chairman, World Economic Forum
- “You could just as easily replace the words climate change with COVID-19; it is truly the tale of two pandemics deferred, denied, and distorted, one with catastrophic consequences, the other with even greater risk if we don’t reverse course.” John Kerry, former Secretary of State
- “No-one could ever imagine that we would be wearing masks so readily and that we would all be so compliant…People were prepared to accept limitations on personal choice and lifestyle – for the good of their own family and friends.” Sir Lindsay Hoyle, Speaker, British House of Commons.
The report discusses what is being termed “scientism,” the push to expand the tactics employed by climate pressure groups. They demand we cede our individual choices to experts “in white lab coats” who know better. Heaven help those scientists who stray from the party line.
Marc Morano highlights a warning issued by former President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1961, who said, “We must be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite… A government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity” and “the prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever-present and is gravely to be regarded.”
America’s founding fathers put our people in charge of our “experts.” They limited government, and empowered “we the people” to change policy through elections. They put civilians in control of the military. Each of us has the right to defend ourselves before juries of our peers. Every day jurors weigh the competing opinions of experts and make the final call.
All that messy freedom is what the technocrats, who consider themselves superior to humble us, are so eager to “reset.”
CFACT’s latest report is a wake up call.
Let’s tell our would-be-masters to keep their “reset.” We’ll keep our freedom.
For nature and people too!
