Setting up the Great Reset
You may worry about politicians in the pocket of the World Economic Forum but what about Big Business?
We’ve heard a lot about the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset agenda of late. It’s an agenda of control crafted by the so-called global elite. But how is it going to come into force?
Politicians willing to do the bidding of Klaus Schwab may be thrown out of office if they go too far. But you don’t vote for corporations, do you?

Setting up the Great Reset
Last week, I summarised the Great Reset in a post for readers of Nation First.
In that post, I said that the World Economic Forum agenda was a “bizarre mix of socialism and crony capitalism… where big government and big business rule the roost.”
You might wonder how big business can “rule the roost.” Well, the answer is ESG.
What in the world is that?
ESG stands for Environment, Social Justice, and Governance. Through this tool, corporations are graded through, as the acronym indicates, a score of its environmental and social impact.
A social credit score for business, if you will. But its a score that can also be applied to customers, suppliers and workers. And even governments.
In 2016, when the State of Georgia considered passage of a religious freedom bill that was branded anti-LGBTQ+ by activists (does this sound familiar to Australian readers?), nearly every major corporation and sports league in the United States of America threatened major economic harm to the State if the bill was signed into law.
Another example. A large bank advertises itself by boasting, “We have policies to back up our values, restricting financing for environmentally harmful activities. As part of our commitment to the Paris Agreement, we have ceased financing for the most harmful forms of fossil fuel extraction.”
Headlines have proliferated about the large numbers of western corporations have stopped doing business in Russia in the wake of that country’s invasion of Ukraine.
So what do these have in common?
First, a caveat: you may agree with one or more of those actions by corporations and banks.
But here’s the question: what happens when banks and corporations use their awesome power over your life to get you to conform to how they believe you should think, believe, and live?
ESG scores allow corporations to bully governments, each other, small businesses, suppliers, and individual consumers.
Those businesses that do not go along with radical left-wing environmental and social justice causes will receive a low ESG score, so banks will not lend them money and large investment funds will no longer invest capital in them.
Already, the biggest investment corporations in existence, BlackRock and Vanguard — who are said to be on track to owning just about “everything” — have been criticised for deploying such a ruthless ESG strategy that it undermines “shareholder democracy”.
Therefore, corporations have to adhere to leftist orthodoxy or face a major (possibly even fatal) hit to their bottom line, as major investors withdraw funds, and other companies refuse to do business with them anymore.
Governments had better do the same, or these corporations which have collectively coerced each other into compliance will punish them, much as what has happened to Georgia in 2016 and is happening to Russia at present.
Most insidious of all, this corporate power will eventually be trained on you, the consumer.
While this has not been exercised to its full extent yet, the time is coming when if you want to buy, for example, a conventional car, many ESG-minded banks may refuse to give you a loan, or will only do so at an unaffordable interest rate… unless you buy an electric car that you don’t want and probably cannot afford, because it’s so good for their ESG score.
At its most extreme, the day may come that if you invest your retirement fund money for profit and not for ludicrous ESG scores, or if your carbon footprint is too large, or if you are found to be guilty of political wrong-think, then maybe your bank, your insurer, power provider, or another corporation upon which you rely for your daily living will not do business with you anymore.
The level of dictatorial control this will afford the globalists behind the Great Reset is simply to terrifying to contemplate, but that is exactly what these so-called elites want.
And how are these scores determined? Good question.
And in this lies one of many ways (we can hope) that ESG may collapse under the weight of its own absurdity before it gains any traction.
First of all, the sheer absurdity of different ideologues grading corporations for their levels of wokeness is simply unsustainable, as each woke watchdog tries to outdo each other and demand ever more insane levels of wokeness to maintain a score.
This is why ESG is increasingly coming under scrutiny, with none other than Elon Musk coming out forcefully against it.
Perhaps, for this reason alone (hopefully) ESG’s days are numbered.
Second, there has been major pushback against the woke corporation phenomenon.
In the United States, the State of Florida made Disney pay a steep price for kowtowing to woke activists and criticising its so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
Since then, Disney has been noticeably silent on social issues.
States have been increasingly unafraid to pass bills that activists claim are anti-LGBTQ+, and these same activists have expressed fury that the corporate outcry has not been even close to what it once was.
Third, the greatest pushback comes from individuals who can elect politicians and governments who oppose this nonsense and refuse to go along with corporate tyranny.
So that leaves one final question: if such major changes are occurring, why isn’t it all over the news?
The answer is simple: these same corporations pushing the Great Reset also own most of the media outlets from which you get your news, and most of these media outlets are full participants in it.
But that’s another story for another day.
What do you think? Is ESG the main way the Great Reset will come about? Or do you support ESG investment? Let the community of Nation First readers know.
You may think that matters such as the Great Reset are insurmountable, but they’re not.
You can do something. You can fund independent reporting and help spread the word!
