Transcript of a talk by Ernst Wolf, first published in TCW 20th September and now republished.
The American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt once said: ‘Nothing happens accidentally in politics and when something happens, you can bet on it that it was exactly planned that way.’
When one looks at what’s happened in the last year and a half, these words are especially alarming.
Can it really be the case that everything we’ve experienced was planned? I’ll say one thing right away: I can’t produce any evidence for such a plan in the form of verified documents, but after studying this topic in detail for 18 months, I must say that there is an impressive number of signs and indications pointing in exactly this direction.
It’s this and the consequences thereof that I want to talk about today.
The current situation we find ourselves in is unique in the history of mankind. Never before has the whole world been thrown under the rule of this type of coercive regime as now in our time. And never have so many measures been taken which at first glance appear to be unintelligible, partly so nonsensical, and in many cases so contradictory.
Officially, this is about the most serious health crisis in living memory, but the measures being used against this have not improved the situation but continuously made things worse.
Every doctor today can confirm that the health condition of people, the majority of people, is worse than before the crisis, and even from the point of view of those who ordered the measures, we are faced with a shambles.
The allegedly threatening fourth wave, and the announcement of the need for third, fourth and fifth vaccinations show that the purpose of the measures up to now, namely preventing the illness, has failed completely.
But that is not all by far. As a consequence of the lockdowns up to now we have a severe global economic crisis to manage. Worldwide production hangs in complete disarray. Global logistics is on the floor, supply chains are broken, harvests are being lost, there are food supply bottlenecks, and on top of this a scarcity for a large part of the economy of essential semi-conductors.
But also we are seeing the problems are not being addressed and solved, but multiplied and magnified via the application of further measures and the constant threat of new restrictions.
The most recent example: in China a port freight terminal, the third largest in the world, has been closed down due to a single positive test from a worker there. Or take New Zealand, where in all seriousness during the last week, five million people were put in lockdown for three days because a single 58-year-old had a positive test.
A further crisis is affecting the small/medium businesses sector, which by a long way provides the most jobs worldwide, and additionally supplies the largest share of tax revenues. The Mittelstand [small-medium industry sector] is being driven from week to week further to the wall through the incessant uncertainty and new regulations, and has never before been stuck in such a deep crisis as today.
But that is not all. We are experiencing at present a brutally increasing worldwide inflation, especially for raw materials, with producer prices and with food products.
But also here, nothing is being done to alleviate the situation, but rather the opposite. The flood of money printing continues and will even be further increased. Countries and central banks have, since the start of the crisis, thrown in almost $20trillion into the worldwide monetary system, without any end in sight! And the International Monetary Fund, as the most powerful financial organisation in the world, will give out next Monday with $650billion, the largest amount ever of its own currency, under special withdrawing rights.
And the situation in society is no better. Just one example: in the USA, the strongest economy in the world, almost four million people are threatened with eviction because they cannot pay their rent or cannot cover their mortgage costs. And more than ten times as many in the USA – note in the richest country of the world – are not in a position to feed themselves from their own income. And that, which the intentional destruction of the economy and the rising inflation have not managed to accomplish, politicians have managed to do. A country-wide fracture of the population as we have never witnessed before.
And now on top of this come vicious measures as the crowning of the whole thing, the premeditated change of power in Afghanistan managed by the USA. There, the Taliban have been deliberately handed military materials to the value of $20billion – a complete air force, with eleven airfield support bases available for use which with absolute certainty will cause the next enormous flood wave of refugees.
Why this, one asks oneself? Why were worldwide measures taken which have caused one disaster after another, and pushed the majority of humanity deeper towards the abyss, instead of lifting them out of their misery?
To answer this question, one has to ask two further questions, namely:
Who has an interest in this global agenda? and
Who profits from this?
The answer to both questions is clear.
The biggest profiteer from the current crisis, and the most important string-puller behind the scenes, is the digital-financial complex. So a type of special interest community, with the largest IT corporations and the largest asset managers of our time at its head. The largest IT concerns include Apple, the Google parent company Alphabet, Amazon, Microsoft and Facebook. The market capitalisation of these five companies alone at present amounts to an incredible $9.1trillion. Just for comparison, the gross GDP of Germany, France and Italy is $8.6trillion. Along with these digital concerns we also have the large asset managers, namely BlackRock, Vanguard, State Street and Fidelity. They are significantly involved in all IT companies, and not only this, these four companies alone, currently manage a total $220.6 trillion. Again, for comparison, the GDP of all 28 nations of the EU last year amounted to $15.7 trillion.
But it is not just the monstrous financial clout of these concerns which makes the digital-financial complex so powerful. Let’s first take the IT corporations. They don’t just have an enormous power themselves, they also control hundreds of thousands of other companies because they organise the digital systems of these other businesses, and in this way have a constant overview of their data streams. The IT industry is nothing other than a tumour which, in the course of the past years has metastasised into all other branches of the economy to make them dependent upon it, and in the meantime to completely dominate them. And it is not any different with the asset managers. They are involved in every large company in the world, and able to influence every popular brand in the world.
The largest of them, BlackRock, supplies the more than 40 years old data analysis system ‘Aladdin Data Cloud’, the greatest fund and financial information the world has ever seen. And in the background, BlackRock uses this knowledge to advise the largest central banks in the world, the Federal Reserve and the EZB [European Central Bank]. Through the huge information advantage which BlackRock has, it is very clear who is dependent upon whom.
So this has to do with a unique historic mix of raw financial power and the discretionary power over an unimaginable huge data pool. This combination allowed these corporations to make a business upswing since the beginning of the crisis as never before. And not only that, their advantage is accelerating continuously. Alone in the previous quarter of this year – April, May and June – these companies have made the largest profits in their whole history. And also, in view of these facts, there’s not much left to the imagination.
And to come to the conclusion, it is this digital-financial complex which is a global power centre which drives everything.
The digital-financial complex stands far above all governments, and is ready at all times to bring every government cabinet in the world to its knees and make it compliant.
One must wonder, however, all the more about the methods introduced by the digital-financial complex since the start of the crisis, because it seems almost as if it is undermining the very system from which it benefits. Here are a few examples. If the digital-financial complex destroys small-medium businesses, then really it is destroying its own livelihood because, as we just heard, the small-medium business sector [Mittelstand] pays the great share of taxes revenues and creates the most jobs. And when inflation increases, that also hurts the digital-financial complex, and when it destroys social peace through increasing inequality, then it also destroys those who it makes its business from.
All these are valid objections, but they miss the reality. Namely, this is how it works. The digital-financial complex has no other choice other than to do what it does at present. What we currently experience is not something which is a formulated written agenda, with which it will accumulate yet more money and power, and then sit back to enjoy the fruits of its labours.
What we are experiencing at this time is a gigantic act of desperation, probably the biggest that has ever occurred in the whole history of mankind. The cause of this act of desperation is that the system to which the digital-financial system owes its existence can no longer be kept alive with the previous business model. It was very close to its demise already during the world financial crisis of 2007-8. If governments then had not mobilised huge amounts of tax money, and the central banks instructed oodles of money to be created out of nothing, the system would have collapsed there and then.
But salvation was only temporary. The amounts of money had to be continuously increased over a period of 12 years, and the interest rates had to be reduced several times. So the system was made ever more unstable. In the long term that could not go well. And last year it was to the point that the next collapse was threatening. And this collapse has been postponed through a final feat of strength, namely the reduction of interest rates to zero, and the injection of billions and billions for one final time. With that however, a qualitatively new situation has come about. A further deferral would require interest rates to be dropped into the minus range, and this would destroy the foundation of the current banking system. Banks cannot operate long-term with negative interest rates. This means that a further deferral with the previously used approach will not be possible. In the present situation one can inject billions and billions into the system at maximum one more time. However, with the result that the already strongly growing rate of inflation will further overheat and will be driven into hyper-inflation.
The situation in which the digital-financial complex finds itself is between the alternatives of, on one side the final collapse, and hyper-inflation on the other side. So, the total loss of value of money. That means, historically, we’ve arrived at a point in which the digital-financial complex, in the framework of the existing system, only still has the choice between two various forms of collapse.
So what can they do?
Quite clearly they have, in this situation, chosen to install a new system and a double strategy. On one side, in the background and away from public view, they are preparing a new system. And on the other side, they are using the end phase of the present dying system to plunder it using all tricks at their disposal. This is exactly what we’ve seen since March 2020. The quite deliberate and premeditated destruction of the world economy for the exclusive expansion of the digital-financial complex, with simultaneous preparation via the central banks of a new system, and in collaboration with the IT corporations. And we already know how this system will look. It is about the complete removal of cash and banks in their previous form, and the introduction of digital money from central banks.
The end goal, as it appears, is that we will all have just a single account through which all transactions run. And this account will not reside in a business/high street bank, but with the central bank.
The background to this plan is the following: digital central bank money is programmable, and because central banks can create unlimited money out of nothing, one can indeed operate in this way with negative interest rates, without having to destroy the system.
But this furthermore is not the only feature of digital central bank money. It will allow governments to watch over all transactions made to assign us various tax rates, and impose upon us individual fines. Governments can also place an expiry limit on a part of our money, and require that we spend certain amounts within certain time periods. But it can also require the money to be used for specific purposes, and require that specific amounts be paid only for certain products, or that they be sourced only from certain regions.
Above all, government will be in the position to cancel our ability to make all transactions with a single mouse click, and so shut us down financially.
Digital central bank money would be the most efficient tax collection method for society that has ever occurred in the whole history of man. And with that, nothing more and nothing less than the realisation of an all-encompassing dictatorship brought about through money.
However, the whole thing has a huge snag.
Namely, the expected resistance from the public. One can be very certain that a large proportion of people won’t accept this form of disenfranchisement. So the introduction of digital central bank money would be expected to produce huge social unrest.
And it is exactly this problem that the digital-financial complex has quite obviously thought about to reverse the process of introducing this (digital) currency. So, they won’t try to make this switch to digital currency gradually but, and thereby risking huge resistance, will do it exactly the other way around. They will drive society into chaos in order to present the introduction of digital central bank money as the solution to all problems. Namely, in the form of a Universal Basic Income (UBI).
For anyone who thinks this is a ‘conspiracy theory’ pulled out of the air, I recommend that you once again take a close look at everything we’ve experienced in the past 18 months. Under the pretext of fighting an illness, devastating and irreparable damages have been done to health, economy and finances, whose full effects are only beginning to show up so far in traces. But at the same time, day by day, work is being done to increase these damages, and in parallel, the social rift in society is being systematically deepened by constantly driving new wedges between people. All of this leads us purposefully in one single direction, social unrest to the point of a civil war, and indeed, worldwide. Exactly that, according to all available information I have, is what is wanted (by the other side). We are experiencing today that by using all conceivable means, one is trying to create the maximum social chaos, and then at the high point of this chaos, bring in a panacea with the name ‘Universal Basic Income’, and in this way effect a change from maximum chaos to maximum control.
By the way, there’s a second reason why, from the perspective of these power brokers, UBI must come. We are sitting right in the middle of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and expect, in the period ahead of us, the loss of millions and millions of jobs due to the introduction of Artificial Intelligence. This means millions of consumers will disappear. The demand for consumer goods will increasingly collapse. And because the current economic system is consumer driven, one must, to maintain life, break through this downward spiral. And that can only happen if all these unemployed consumers, who cannot find work, are provided with an income.
We see that what’s happened in the last 18 months, and what is still going on, is obviously all following a (prepared) plan. And the name of this plan is: ‘Deconstruction of the present economic system to the benefit of the elites. The generation of the maximum economic and social chaos, and the establishment of a new system, under the guise of wanting to provide humanitarian help.’
This plan is however available to read, and that’s in both books about the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Great Reset by Klaus Schwab, whose World Economic Forum (WEF) plays a key role in this whole agenda. The WEF has succeeded over the past 50 years to become the most important control centre of the digital-financial complex. First of all business leaders were brought together, then later also politicians, and still later, media creators in commanding roles, and prominent figures all networking with one another.
Additionally, in the 90s, people were subjected to a targeted training programme. We know today that since 1992, the ‘Global Leaders of Tomorrow’ and since 2005 the ‘Young Global Leaders’ always received a systematic schooling from the WEF.
And it is exactly these same people who right now occupy positions of political power and influence. Whether it is Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos or Jack Ma from the IT area. Whether it is CEO Larry Fink of BlackRock, head of the IMF Kristalina Georgieva, or former head of the Bank of England Mark Carney from the finance sector, or Emmanuel Macron, Sebastian Kurz or Angela Merkel from politics. All of these people have been either trained by the WEF or they sit on its leadership board.
And it’s not just the 1,300 members of this closely networked elite group who pull the strings worldwide. Since 2012, there are also a further 10,000 under 30-year-olds, so-called ‘Global Shapers’, who’ve joined the club, and who’ve also been brought together by the WEF, and in its sense, exert influence on the course of world events.
And we know how these events should look. To see this, I recommend looking into the work of WEF founder Klaus Schwab.
For those who still can’t believe that everything we’ve experienced follows a plan, they should check the publishing date of Schwab’s work, The Great Reset.
This book appeared on 20th June 2020, thus not even four months after the worldwide lockdown, and already gives exact instructions how one should use Covid-19, in order to put it darkly, creatively destroy the world, and build up a new world, in the image of man he [Schwab] has drawn up, which is reminiscent of the darkest times of national socialism.
I know that all of this sounds shocking, like a carefully prepared apocalypse.
Indeed, the agenda that is being followed here is obviously not only planned, but also can hardly be surpassed in terms of evil and deceit.
Who would ever have suspected that under the guise of protecting mankind from the effects of a disease, the world economy would be driven to a total collapse?
To take away people’s freedom to travel, their rights of association and free speech, the freedom to express opinions, and in addition, to condemn more than 100million people to starvation, and all of this allegedly ‘for their own protection’!
And who would have thought that an unapologetic eugenicist named Klaus Schwab would be put in a position to not only spread worldwide his gruesome vision of a melding of a human being with machine intelligence (AI), but also to have this vision driven forward by 10,000 helpers.
All of these are deeply destructive developments with which we are now living and having to suffer under and their details are enough to freeze the blood in the veins of any normal and thinking person.
But now I am coming to the most important message that I have to give today.
The whole thing also has another side to it, a quite different side and above all, one which gives us all a huge boost, and a great amount of power for our future work.
The plan of the elites, the visions of Klaus Schwab, are condemned to fail, and this is for several reasons.
The most important is that the narrative of a deadly virus, which is an existential threat to humanity, cannot be sustained in the long run.
We already see how the pack of lies is collapsing in on itself from all sides.
We see how, in efforts to legitimise it, resort is made to ever more absurd arguments and rabid defamation.
It is important to recognise here that the vehemence the media are displaying these days testifies not to their strength but to their weakness.
Whoever, with ever more emphasis, spreads ever more grotesque lies, like the pandemic of the unvaccinated, who declares healthy people public enemy No 1, and whoever on the basis of a single illness, or test ‘case’, locks down whole countries, they are doing this only because they’ve run out of arguments, and in desperation are blindly lashing out.
Abraham Lincoln once said: ‘You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all of the time.’
Exactly that – the truth will appear in our time, and this naturally has an enormous meaning for us, because ironically it opens up for us that which Klaus Schwab has termed ‘a unique window of opportunity’, however, in exactly the reverse dynamic (to what he intended). Namely, that via the collapsing narrative, the credibility of those who have led us into this situation is being buried by the day, and because of that, a unique window of opportunity has opened for all of us, for a vast and comprehensive campaign of enlightenment.
The objective conditions to enlighten others about the real background of the alleged ‘pandemic’, about the real balance of power in the world, and the real threats we face, have never been as good as now, and they are getting better day by day, because the other side are getting entangled in their increasingly unbelievable lies.
And even if the digital-financial complex should succeed in introducing the new currency, that would also not be the end of the world. Digital central bank money can namely only function as the basis of a comprehensive coercive system.
One will always introduce new price controls, continuously increase the Universal Basic Income, and create permanent inflation with emphatic pressure, which in turn will lead to a continuous impoverishment of the population, and constant conflict with the state and authorities.
What we need to understand is the following: Without any doubt, we stand before turbulent and also dangerous times, but we hold a historic trump card in our hands. It consists in the fact that the other side does not act according to the rules of reason, but strives out of motives of greed and power, and therefore cannot do anything other than bring itself into ever greater difficulties.
We should use exactly that (weakness), and always keep in view, that the other side likes more money, more property, and additionally to have available all the weapons in the world.
But their power is not based on their money, nor on their possessions or their weapons, but relies solely upon one factor. And that is the ignorance of the majority of people, i.e. the majority doesn’t understand the evil game that this minority are playing with them.
As terrible as everything is that the digital-financial complex and its helpers have served up in the past 18 months, and still continue to serve up, it has put itself in a situation which it cannot get out of, and in which out of despair it must cross ever more ‘red lines’.
This means for all of us, that in this exceptional situation we should, quite simply, keep the peace, consistently expose all lies, and show people bit by bit, why, and by whom, they are being deceived.
When we do that, and doing so reflect on the strength of our arguments, then we can not only solve the current problem, but possibly achieve something much bigger, namely, use one of the deepest crises of humanity to turn around the direction of human history, and so open the door to a new (and better) era.
