You Defeat The Great Reset, Then What? Pt. 2


by Joe Martino


In part 1 I spoke about a growing desire for solutions to the bigger challenges in our world. Millions are seeing that we have a world where powerful people can influence the direction our society heads whether the citizenry agrees with it or not.


Questions that arise from some are, “How to we get our power back?” and “What are the solutions to the technocratic and transhumanistic worldview of The Great Reset that’s barrelling forward?”


I also laid out a thesis of sorts. An ecology of ideas that seem to be at play in how we evolve as individuals and societies. Breaking The Illusion, Awakening Neutrality (Uncertainty), Deprogramming Limits, and Living Aligned. You can review these in detail once more here, if you like.


My feeling is that if we engage each of these ideas in our journey of looking for solutions, we will begin to approach this conundrum from a much more clear, productive, and fulfilling place – a place that isn’t stuck in the worldview of today. A worldview often riddled with ideology, quick judgements, and a lack of depth.


I also talked about how many of us are at different stages of engagement within the four concepts I laid out. I believe right now that the majority of people who are asking for solutions are engaging with Breaking The Illusion to some extent.


That is to say that people are learning about the layers of corruption that exist in our society. We’re realizing that we are seeing the destruction of anything from our freedoms to health to waterways and ecosystems as a result of how our society operates.


When we only engage the concept of Breaking the Illusion, and leave the other concepts out, one thing that can happen is we start to believe the problem we have is the ‘evil’ or ‘bad’ people in power. That if only we could jail “the psychopaths in power” all will be OK. The intention of this essay is to mostly speak to people who see things this way.



Let’s do a thought experiment to look more deeply at why I believe this is a limited frame of seeing “our problems.”


A Thought Experiment: You Defeat The Great Reset…


Imagine for a moment that undeniable truth is permeated to the masses about unforgivable levels of government corruption. COVID cover ups by Prime Ministers and Presidents are revealed, and secret plans to take freedoms from the masses at any cost are revealed. Insert whatever else you want revealed about corruption too.


Now imagine all the Great Reset founders and elitists responsible for these things are put in jail and can’t affect society anymore. Characters like Klaus Schwab, Anthony Fauci, and Justin Trudeau, for example, are in jail for ‘what they’ve done.’


Before we say “it’d be a good start,” really take it in: ‘Their plans’ have been defeated. Do you have a sense of what you would want our world to look like if the elitist controllers were actually removed from power? Have you thought about what would practically happen next or change within our society?


I’ve done this type of thought experiment with many people over the last 15 years. Believe it or not, the vast majority have never thought this far ahead. It’s easy to talk about the ‘bad’ people, and it’s easy to call for their removal from power, but it’s difficult to truly think of what to do next or what would even happen next.


We have vastly interconnected economic systems, energy systems, and food systems – what would happen to them? Would the world just hum along once they’re gone and ‘good people’ would just take over? How long would it take before those people become corrupt? Have we wondered if the systems we have today, like our economic system for example, is actually a system of oppression by design, and that it doesn’t matter if ‘good’ people or ‘bad’ people run it, they will always produce man made scarcity and suffering?


To be clear, I’m not suggesting the answer is to put all these people in jail – only to think about what to do next. I’m making the point that some believe the problems we have today are just a small group of people when in reality we have to acknowledge things like the design of our current societal systems. Societal systems born out of a particular worldview, one that says we are separate, meant to compete against each other, and that we are here to dominate nature. Wouldn’t this mindset only flesh out the same problem once again?


It is here where I am tempted to dive into a deep exploration of what I believe to be one of the primary causes of the type of world we see today: our consciousness and collective worldview. I’ve done this deep dive in previous pieces like this one: A New Worldview Is Emerging That Can Change Our Entire Perspective On Reality.


For now, let’s put on the table the idea that the story of our current world suggests that we are separate from one another and just trying to survive. That we are violent, prone to destroying one another, and that our nature is to dominate one another and nature. I believe this overarching worldview is seen in the way we design our societies, and it’s just a learned behavior.


I believe that if we recognized the interconnectedness that exists between us and nature, and tapped truly into the love we have for each other that exists far beyond our every day thoughts, we’d likely create a better society right away. Once again, read this piece for deeper insight into this idea.


Culturally, we are so far away from embracing that interconnectedness en masse. I feel for now it’s more useful to explore the space in between embracing that new state of consciousness and the way our world is today. How do we go from here to there? What do we do while this new worldview is taking its time to emerge within us? How can we take some useful steps now? Steps that can speak to those that might not even believe a new world is possible? Remember, we are a collective, it matters what each of us holds as a possibility, and thus it matters that we communicate with one another about the world we believe is possible.


So let’s turn our attention to a more useful frame than “put the bad people in jail,” and let’s stretch our minds to consider the scale of the solutions we must be talking about.


Good Solutions Come From Well Defined Problems


For almost two decades I have believed that we are in the midst of a great consciousness shift in our society (this is the part where we talk about oneness and the birthing of a new story of who we are and how we relate to one another.) One that will help reshape the way we see our societal design and what we believe is possible. This also means gaining a clearer and more holistic picture on what our current challenges actually are in the short term.


Good solutions come from well defined problems. I feel that for the most part humanity has not done a good job of defining problems we face. If it isn’t clear, the idea that “the bad people need to be jailed to solve everything ” is a poorly defined problem. That “removing the Republicans in favor of the Democrats” is a poorly defined problem. The dualistic nature in which we see our world, without an inquiry into human condition, systems, and consciousness, is why we’re failing to clearly define our problems.


When we have a limited or narrow way of viewing life, “these politicians are socialist crazies, and let’s stop them” are the solutions we come up with… and well.. they suck lol.


If we want to go from Breaking The Illusion and begin to engage Awakening Neutrality (welcoming uncertainty), we will need to start asking deeper questions and step out of simplistic ideologies. This is to say, in order to resist The Great Reset and create a better world in its place, we’ll need to think about what type of world we want to create in its place. In order to do that, we need to steer clear of getting caught up in limiting our thinking and feeling of what our problems are. We need to think a bit more metaphysical.


Here are a few thoughts to consider:


1. In order to feel out solutions we need to realize there is a problem. (Done. Most of us see this, check.)


2. In order to design good solutions we need to do a good job of defining exactly what those problems are on multiple players. People, needs, societal design, consciousness etc. (We aren’t digging deep enough, no check on this.)


3. In order to define problems clearly we have to communicate and engage collective intelligence. Which is to say we need to hear from each other and what each others needs are. We will have to be humble, introspective, and be able to make sense of our world well. We’ll need to discuss this all respectively. (No check on this one. But momentum is building because people are tired of hating each other.)


4. Of course underlying all this, and perhaps the most important part, is we have to be willing to truly question what we believe about ourselves, the nature of our reality, and what we believe is possible within our world. A level of curiosity that our current environment often beats out of us. (We love being cynical about what is truly possible because we fear being disappointed. We have to work this out. No check on this one.)


To me, all of these pieces have to be engaged if we wish to make an earnest effort at answering the question our readers brought forth initially. It may sound like a lot, but it truly isn’t. We are in this together, and most of it is just about showing up to the table with curiosity and uncertainty, seeking to understand more about what is going on.


Let’s dig in.


The Realization of How Big Solutions Need To Be


Interestingly, the world’s financial elite recognize just how much our current game (societal systems) is over. They have been seeding a plan called The Great Reset.


The Great Reset represents a moment where powerful individuals are creating conversation around this obvious need for change that so many sense. In reading The Fourth Industrial Revolution by Klaus Schwab, one of the founders of The Great Reset, you get the idea very quickly that all the right ‘key words’ are being used to draw people in.


The Great Reset proposes things like creating an egalitarian world where poverty is erased and meaning is brought back to life. We work together to live from the heart, mind and soul in order to get along and feel fulfilled. Automation and technology are used ethically, in a way where we don’t lose sight of what it means to be human but instead allow the technology to help us thrive.


Reading the book you quickly realize that many of the very ideas you and I have to make the world better are talked about, or at least those are the ideas I’ve often had.


The problem is, I don’t trust Klaus Schwab, powerful financial elites, or governments to bring this about. Why? Because they have a horrible track record and I don’t believe they are actually trying to ‘do the right thing.’ Maybe I’m wrong, but a big part of me doesn’t trust them.


Many others sense what I feel too – The Great Reset can’t be trusted because the same people and mindsets that have us where we are today are the same ones trying to create ‘the solution.’


This solution, The Great Reset, is barreling forward at an intensely fast pace: more surveillance, more control, central bank digital currencies, carbon taxes, AI, brain implants, and a loss of freedom. People are worried and fearful of where we are headed and want to do something ASAP. You also notice that many of the solutions the Great Reset calls for some from this controlling, authoritarian, and bleak worldview that permeates our current reality. It’s void of sacredness.


If we wish to resist this plan in the short term and the long term, we’ll need to start thinking and talking about the world we want to create, and prepare ourselves to be able to hold the possibility of that world in our hearts, minds and bodies. We’ll need to be able to communicate these ideas to others, and do so intelligently and respectively – even if we only hold a small piece to the puzzle.


Facing Reality With Heart & Courage


Like it or not, our societies are vast and interconnected. A huge amount of planning and energy goes into how our world functions everyday. Stewardship of our societies is needed – even if we wholesale changed our system to be more egalitarian.


With that said, who would steward this new world? How would we trust each other? If there is no trust in institutions and we want to resist or fight The Great Reset, what world do we want instead? Or maybe many just want to hold onto the existing one?


I know, I know, “create a local community with friends. Homestead and exit the system” right? That may work for you, and I do believe it is part of the solution in part, but what about the billions of people who cannot afford to do that? This is a big question that is often avoided in conversation around ‘ending corruption’ and ‘creating a better world.’


I have put thousands of hours over the last 15 years into exploring these questions. Time and time again the problem is most people don’t want to talk about real, large scale solutions because it’s ‘too big’ to wrap our heads around – and I get that. But without embracing discussion of what we’d do next, we’re left complaining about something endlessly or sticking with statements like “everyone just needs to be a good person and that’s what’s most important.” It’s a nice sentiment, but it fails to address holistic reality.


It’s easy and cheap to talk about putting ‘the elites’ behind bars,’ but what next? The nature and design of our current society and worldview is driven by individual gain, corporate money, and un-elected influence, how long before it produces the next corrupt leader?


Without answering the question of ‘what we’d do next,’ I often wonder whether we have the ability to ever truly address the problems that we face now. Why? Because I feel there is an underlying collective intelligence that exists, perhaps deep within us even, that knows that the type of change people want cannot come out until we have the capacity to actually move through transitioning into solutions and systems that would work if these elite individuals were taken away.


Do we have the emotional and intellectual maturity to come together as people and find ways to steward massive societies that currently exist on the planet? Do we have the willingness to trust and connect in meaningful ways? Or would this be a process done with guns drawn?


I put an entire 7 episode series together for my podcast called Collective Evolution where I try to have a conversation around an ecology of questions/potential solutions that go along with this evolution. If you’re thinking of exploring the meta crisis’ behind our existing systems and what solutions might drive us forward, I highly encourage you to check out episodes 1 – 7. You can start here.


In part 3 of this essay, I will focus on some practical steps we can take to begin having this discussion of “what we do next” and “what could our world look like?” This involves communication, exploring ideas, re-focusing some of our attention, and personally developing ourselves to hold the possibility of this new world in the short and long term.


We are the creators of a new world, but we have to start acting like it.
