Michael Rectenwald: Google Archipelago & Great Reset as One-World Monopoly of Government
*Original Air Date: June 3, 2021
Dr. Michael Rectenwald discusses how Woke Capitalism and the Digital Gulag or Google Archipelago are coalescing into "corporate-socialism" or what he calls Google Marxism. Its aim is a "one-world monopoly of government" whose expression is most clearly seen today in what is known as "The Great Reset." China's technocracy is the model for the whole world and medical passports are how the "Social Credit Score" system will be rolled out in the West, which is currently underway. Businesses and corporations will also have a Social Credit Score known as the ESG metric, which will evaluate whether companies are adhering to the "Green Agenda" and add numerous regulations and taxes, which ultimately will favor the global monopolies and serve to bankrupt smaller enterprises. Dr. Rectenwald warns us not to give up and to create networks of resistance, islands of freedom, and to develop economic means of independence.
