The fact that the pandemic has been used to shift wealth from the poor and middle class to the ultra-wealthy is clear for anyone to see at this point. As reported by Inter Press Service News: “The combined wealth of U.S. billionaires surpassed $1 trillion in gains since March 202 according to a study by the Institute for Policy Studies.
While 45.5 million Americans filed for unemployment, 29 new billionaires were created, and the five richest men in the U.S., Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett and Larry Ellison, grew their wealth by a total of $101.7 billion (26%), between March 18 and June 17, 2020.
Pandemic profiteers include big tech companies like Zoom and Skype, along with some of the largest retailers. Walmart and Target report record sales this year and no wonder since they’re frequently been the only place that hasn’t been shut down. Online retailers like Amazon and Wayfair are also boasting record revenues.
The disparity in treatment of big box stores and small retailers is striking — and illogical. Why is it safe to shop with hundreds of people in a Walmart but unsafe to shop in a store that can only hold a fraction of that? Why has the largest retailers been allowed to remain open while mom and pop shops have been forcibly shut down? It makes no sense, yet the targeted destruction of small businesses continues.
That the COVID-19 pandemic is a form of class war is also evident in the way rules are enforced. While citizens are told what to do, those who lay down the rules repeatedly break them. It’s “rules for thee, not for me.” From telling people they have to wear masks between bites to closing down indoor gatherings at dining establishments and small businesses across the country, the hypocrisy of different states’ governors is blatant.
Threatening criminal citations and even arrest, these governors demand obedience “for the public good.” It’s all about “saving lives,” they say. Yet these same governors continue living life more or less normally, socializing and traveling as they always have, without repercussions.
White House news reporters don’t get off the hook, either, as they have one standard for the president and the public and a different set of rules when they think the cameras are off.
The hypocrisy of the ruling class makes the restrictions all the more difficult to bear, as it’s becoming increasingly clear that there really are two sets of rules, and they’re based on class.
There’s the haves and the have nots, and those with meager finances are also disproportionally robbed of their freedom to socialize and travel, which is just as devastating as not being allowed to make a living.
At this point, it should be obvious for anyone paying attention that the pandemic is being prolonged and exaggerated for a reason, and it’s not because there’s concern for life. Quite the contrary, it’s a ploy to quite literally enslave the global population within a digital surveillance system that is not of our own choosing — a system so unnatural and inhumane that no rational population would ever voluntarily go down that road.
Under the post-pandemic ‘Great Reset,’ pushed by the far left, there would not be much life left outside the technological-corporate nexus dominated by monolithic agribusiness, pharmaceutical, communication, defense and other inter-connected corporations, and the governments and media serving them.
Most if not all pandemic restrictions to freedom are meant to become permanent. Indeed, they’re bound to become even more restrictive and invasive once plans for health passports, an all-digital currency, standard basic income, debt forgiveness in return for relinquishing all future rights to private ownership, digital IDs and a social scoring system are fully implemented.
Once the “new world order” is in place, you will no longer be able to do a thing about it. Your life — your health, educational and work opportunities, your finances and your very identity — will be so meshed with the automated technological infrastructure that any attempt to break free will result in you being locked out or erased from the system, leaving you with no ability to learn, work, travel or engage in commerce.
