Watching a series of European bureaucrats…pompous, arrogant, and extremely unattractive European bureaucrats…asserting the need for a global ‘great reset’, I was reminded of the above line from Bob Dylan’s song.
In America, too, of course, we have politicians and bureaucrats demanding a Great Reset. And Dylan’s song, of course, was directed at armaments manufacturers, not at world-resetting politicians and their operatives. Nevertheless, I think the phrase captures well the arrogance of those who believe they have the knowledge, insight, and authority to reorganize the lives of everyone on the planet. And in their view of things, there isn’t any ‘my world’ for the individual; there is no sphere of individual autonomy and agency which is not to be made available for their interference. It’s all their world.
In 1931, a book titled The Conscription of a People was published by Katherine, Duchess of Atholl. It was “a blistering, well-documented indictment of the savage collectivization of life in the Soviet Union.”
The title of the book provides a perfect description of the worldview of the Resetters. The entire population is to be drafted into an army, assigned to whatever battles and tasks their rulers..far beyond their ability to influence..think most fitting.
