A timeline of the great reset agenda: from foundation to Event 201 and the pandemic of 2020

How the great reset ideology pitched its tent in the ‘new normal’ camp: perspective

Say it’s 2014 and you’ve had this idea for a technocratic great reset of the world economy for some time now, but it only works if the entire planet is rocked by a pandemic. How do you go about selling your idea?

“The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous future” — Klaus Schwab, WEF

If you are World Economic Forum (WEF) Founder Klaus Schwab, you attempt to sell your vision of a global Utopia via a great reset of the world order in three simple steps:

  1. Announce your intention to revamp every aspect of society with global governance, and keep repeating that message
  2. When your message isn’t getting through, simulate fake pandemic scenarios that show why the world needs a great reset
  3. If the fake pandemic scenarios aren’t persuasive enough, wait a couple months for a real global crisis to occur, and repeat step one

It took Schwab and the Davos elite about six years to watch their great reset ideology grow from a tiny Swiss seed in 2014 to a European super-flower pollinating the entire globe in 2020.

The so-called “great reset” promises to build “a more secure, more equal, and more stable world” if everyone on the planet agrees to “act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.”

But it wouldn’t have been possible to contemplate materializing such an all-encompassing plan for a new world order without a global crisis, be it manufactured or of unfortunate happenstance, that shocked society to its core.

“In the end, the outcome was tragic: the most catastrophic pandemic in history with hundreds of millions of deaths, economic collapse and societal upheaval” — Clade X pandemic simulation (May, 2018)

So, in May, 2018, the WEF partnered with Johns Hopkins to simulate a fictitious pandemic — dubbed “Clade X” —  to see how prepared the world be if ever faced with such a crisis.

A little over a year later, the WEF once again teamed-up with Johns Hopkins, along with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to stage another pandemic exercise called Event 201 in October, 2019.

Both simulations concluded that the world wasn’t prepared for a global pandemic.

And a few short months following the conclusion of Event 201, which specifically simulated a coronavirus outbreak, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially declared that the coronavirus had reached pandemic status on March 11, 2020.

“The next severe pandemic will not only cause great illness and loss of life but could also trigger major cascading economic and societal consequences that could contribute greatly to global impact and suffering” — Event 201 pandemic simulation (October, 2019)

Since then, just about every scenario covered in the Clade X and Event 201 simulations has come into play, including:

  • Governments implementing lockdowns worldwide
  • The collapse of many industries
  • Growing mistrust between governments and citizens
  • A greater adoption of biometric surveillance technologies
  • Social media censorship in the name of combating misinformation
  • The desire to flood communication channels with “authoritative” sources
  • A global lack of personal protective equipment
  • The breakdown of international supply chains
  • Mass unemployment
  • Rioting in the streets
  • And a whole lot more!

After the nightmare scenarios had fully materialized by mid-2020, the WEF founder declared “now is the time for a great reset” in June of this year.

Was it excellent forecasting, planning, and modeling on the part of the WEF and partners that Clade X and Event 201 turned out to be so prophetic, or was there something more to it?

Below is a condensed timeline of events that tracks the great reset agenda that went from just a “hope” in 2014 to a globalist ideology touted by royalty, the media, and heads of state the world-over in 2020.

2014-2017: Klaus Schwab calls for great reset and WEF repeats message

Ahead of the 2014 WEF meeting in Davos, Switzerland, Schwab announced that he hoped the WEF would push the reset button on the global economy.

The WEF would go on to repeat that message for years.

Between 2014 and 2017, the WEF called to reshape, restart, reboot, and reset the global order every single year, each aimed at solving various “crises.”

Then in 2018, the Davos elites turned their heads towards simulating fake pandemic scenarios to see how prepared the world would be in the face of a different crisis.

2018-2019: WEF, Johns Hopkins & Gates Foundation simulate fake pandemics

On May 15, 2018, Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security hosted the “Clade X” pandemic exercise in partnership with the WEF.

The Clade X exercise included mock video footage of actors giving scripted news reports about a fake pandemic scenario (video below).

The Clade X event also included discussion panels with real policymakers who assessed that governments and industry were not adequately prepared for the fictitious global pandemic.

“In the end, the outcome was tragic: the most catastrophic pandemic in history with hundreds of millions of deaths, economic collapse and societal upheaval,” according to WEF report on Clade X.

“There are major unmet global vulnerabilities and international system challenges posed by pandemics that will require new robust forms of public-private cooperation to address” — Event 201 pandemic simulation (October, 2019)

Then on October 18, 2019, in partnership with Johns Hopkins and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the WEF ran Event 201.

During the scenario, the entire global economy was shaken, there were riots on the streets, and high-tech surveillance measures were needed to “stop the spread.”

Two fake pandemics were simulated in the two years leading up to the real coronavirus crisis.

“Governments will need to partner with traditional and social media companies to research and develop nimble approaches to countering misinformation” — Event 201 pandemic simulation (October, 2019)

The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security issued public statement on January 24, 2020, explicitly addressing that Event 201 wasn’t meant to predict the future.

“To be clear, the Center for Health Security and partners did not make a prediction during our tabletop exercise. For the scenario, we modeled a fictional coronavirus pandemic, but we explicitly stated that it was not a prediction. Instead, the exercise served to highlight preparedness and response challenges that would likely arise in a very severe pandemic.”

Intentional or not, Event 201 “highlighted” the “fictional” challenges of a pandemic, along with recommendations that go hand-in-hand with the great reset agenda that has set up camp in the nefarious “new normal.”

“The next severe pandemic will not only cause great illness and loss of life but could also trigger major cascading economic and societal consequences that could contribute greatly to global impact and suffering” — Event 201 pandemic simulation (October, 2019)

Together, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, the World Economic Forum, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation submitted seven recommendations for governments, international organizations, and global business to follow in the event of a pandemic.

The Event 201 recommendations call for greater collaboration between the public and private sectors while emphasizing the importance of establishing partnerships with un-elected, global institutions such as the WHO, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the International Air Transport Organization, to carry out a centralized response.

One of the recommendations calls for governments to partner with social media companies and news organization to censor content and control the flow of information.

“Media companies should commit to ensuring that authoritative messages are prioritized and that false messages are suppressed including though [sic] the use of technology” — Event 201 pandemic simulation (October, 2019)

According to the report, “Governments will need to partner with traditional and social media companies to research and develop nimble approaches to countering misinformation.

“National public health agencies should work in close collaboration with WHO to create the capability to rapidly develop and release consistent health messages.

“For their part, media companies should commit to ensuring that authoritative messages are prioritized and that false messages are suppressed including though [sic] the use of technology.”

Sound familiar?

Throughout 2020, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube have been censoring, suppressing, and flagging any coronavirus-related information that goes against WHO recommendations as a matter of policy, just as Event 201 had recommended.

Big tech companies have also deployed the same content suppression tactics during the 2020 US presidential election — slapping “disputed” claims on content that question election integrity.

2020: WEF declares ‘Now is the time for a great reset’

After calling for a great reset in 2014, the Davos crowd repeated the same ideology for a few more years before pivoting towards simulating faux pandemic scenarios.

A few months after the WEF established that nobody was prepared to deal with a coronavirus pandemic, the WHO declared there was a coronavirus pandemic.

All of a sudden! the great reset narrative that the WEF had been nurturing for six years, found a place to pitch its tent in the “new normal” camp.

“The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous future,” Schwab declared on June 3, 2020.

And that’s where we’re at today.

  • The Davos elites said they wanted a global reset of the economy many years ago
  • They role-played what would happen if a pandemic were to occur
  • And now they’re saying that the great reset ideology is the solution to the pandemic, and it must be enacted quickly

The great reset is a means to an end.

Next on the agenda is a complete makeover of society under a technocratic regime of un-elected bureaucrats who want to dictate how the world is run from the top down, leveraging invasive technologies to track and trace your every move while censoring and silencing anyone who dares not comply.

  • This has helped me to understand what they are really trying to do.
    I first thought it could be a good thing. But now it looks like they will have total control of everything.
    I don’t like it at all.
    It makes me think of the new world order. Something that would make things worse. Thanks for the great info and please let’s us know more when you have more to share. I hope they won’t censor you.
    Be safe.

  • Where is the 'great' within the great economic forum? For it has destroyed lives under the fallacy that it will create a new society which will be to the benefit of all
    Single handedly these evil individuals have bought society to a near collaspe, jobs have been lost and lives destroyed under the camouflage of the Coronavirus which has been manipulated to instill fear and subserviance in people isolating them from their loved ones and thus exacerbating mental health illnesses and thereby resulting in a 50% rise in suicides
    Did members of the Economic Forum have a right to act as our God and try to control our lives ?the answer is NO, and our God is angry and seeks justice for his people because of the barbarism that has been inflicted on them against their will
    Freedom is a basic human right the people do NOT want to be enslaved within an unjust system that favours the rich and dehumanises the rest of the population removing their hard earned assets from them.
    All those that are affilated with the economic forum and the global reset ( notice i have omitted the word great) will answer for crimes against humanity itself as you all have blood on your hands

  • Ok excuse me but in the United States we have a Constitution, we also dont need to recognize these people making this assumption that we are to obey there GOOFY COMMIE IDEAS. WE THE PEOPLE VOTE FOR REPRESENTATIVES, BILL GATES IS NOT A LEADER FOR AMERICANS and the creepy old guy is not anyone to Americans. They are not at all in tune to the real world that is plain to see.

  • Why can't you see the potential positive in this..

    Ok so we are tracked and controlled, ain't no new thing.

    All the good people do is work eat and sleep so it's not important.

    If it eradicates people trafficking, illegal drugs and polution, along with improving the only known habitable planet we know of then why not...

    Ask yourself what's the alternative? Is the world going to change it's selfish behavouir without being forced to...... me thinks not and the WEF think not.

    It's sad to swallow the fact that you or I may not be included in the few that go on to survive but if we were unselfish and prepared to make a sacrifice for our species and planet then its a good thing and what needs to happen.

    Please if you have a better solution to our destructive path please share it...

    • If it was that easy, sure. Weed out the criminals, so good people can go about their daily life without getting harassed or murdered. Makes sense.

      But now think about it..
      Will they only target real criminals or also anyone who dares to question the system?

      It’s a very slippery slope. If you ever watched a sci-fi dystopian movie, you’ll know it’s bound to become a bright and shiny totalitarian hell!

      It’s in our human nature to create people who take advantage of their power. This will always happen.

      So the best government is the one, who the people control and oversee, not the other way around!

      This new world order is a breeding ground for a new dictatorship that will monitor society. They’ll decide what job you will do, what you are allowed to own, and when and with whom you are allowed to reproduce, if at all. They will also decide what happens to your child. You most likely won’t raise it yourself, bc they will make sure it gets indoctrinated early on.

      You will be a number with a digital chip on your skin. You won’t have cash flow, so whenever you do sth “bad” or if you want to escape that system, they will freeze your accounts. You will own nothing, bc every necessity will be provided for. So the government will decide how big your apartment will be and so on. And they most likely won’t be generous.

      We will still have the multi billionaires and the simple folk. Only difference is, at least now the poor simple folk can move around and make individual life decisions. Ppl won’t be able to do that in the new system.

      And I’m not talking about what will happen in 2025 or 2030. But this now will be the start. And it won’t seem as bad at first, but along the lines one step at a time, they will restrict us more and more and will be to late to stop this!!

      I’m not even sure if we’re able to stop this now! If all the information that’s written in this article is out in the open and anyone can access this, what is the consequence for the WEF?? Why is there no consequence?? Why don’t people initiate an investigation and file a massive lawsuit against these people??

      If every American was part of a collective lawsuit against the WEF, I’m pretty sure we’d have some leverage! Why don’t people do this?

  • The great reset should come after the Rapture but the reset is nothing more than a power grab by Satan ,to put everything in his grasp and to destroy all resemblances of freedom and take top down control of all people. Revelation 13:16

  • If "The Great Reset" is so "great", you know, especially that "You will own nothing, and you will be happy" part, then how come all these Rich Oligarchs aren't giving all their stuff away? Last I looked their entire plan is to "Capitalize on emerging Technologies!" Doesn't sound very altruistic to me!

    Plus, they state, "You will RENT every you need!"

    From whom, the same Rich Oligarchs stealing everything that isn't already locked down? And ain't it funny how they all live in OUTSIZED MANSIONS AND TRAVEL BY PRIVATE JETS while telling us thrals we all need to consume less.

    These are not elected officials. These are people of GENERATIONAL WEALTH. And they are using financial coercion to bring poorer governments on board, and buying up politicians in the richer countries.

    This is "1984" dystopia on Steroids.


    • The rapture into the sky so the mortals who survived can meet their King takes place simultaneously with the first resurrection of all those who died physically in Yeshua from Adam to the point of Yeshuas return as a thief in the night.


    ** Merchants- Gates, Zuckerberg, Pfizer, Moderna, J & J, etc.

    **Sorceries- Strong's Lexicon, G5331, pharmakeia,
    administration of drugs & poisons.

  • This is excellent work. I've been researching the World Economic Forum for about two years now, maybe a little longer. Stumbled upon the Great Reset by total accident when my Twitter feed lit up with angry Canadian conservatives and very strange ramblings on the parts of Canadian liberals. I watched silently from Texas for about 8 months before Justin Trudeau started opening speaking about the reset. Considering that he is Canada's Prime Minister that immediately ruled out whether or not this was just some weird Canadian conspiracy theory.

    Of course I know much more today, as unfortunately Joe Biden is working on destroying the United States of America for hi s pal Klaus and all of his minions.

    I haven't finished looking at all of your content here so I don't already know the answer to this, but have you looked into the Forum for Young Global Leaders? Klaus Schwab founded that organization in 2005 and it serves as his minion factory where he manufactures villainous rights violators such as Mark Zuckerberg, Pete Buttigieg, Adam Kinzinger, Ibrim X. Kendi (critical race theory), and many others who are wreaking havoc on behalf of their master, Klaus. Many of the people who are running the governments around the world including Canada and the US are members of the YGL.
