Disinfo: Global elites want to increase control of the population after the pandemic

Summary

With the arrival of the vaccines, humankind seems ready to win the fight against coronavirus. But some elites that plan a Great Reset afterwards don’t want to return to normalcy. Along with the idea of “health passports”, one can easily imagine a world in which those not vaccinated could be easily excluded from vital services. Did you post too many anti-vaccine publications on Facebook? Sorry, my friend, your credit is denied.

With the members of the World Economic Forum literally funding their own activist movements, it will be hard to discern top-down from grassroots change. In promoting new environmentalism, Greta Thunberg and British Petroleum are in the same team. In reinventing capitalism, Pope Francis and Mastercard are working together to give corporations a stronger voice in cultural and political matters. Regarding health policies, the WEF and a big part of the world’s media seem to agree on leaving Bill Gates to decide the future of medicine and the prevention of diseases. However, if you discuss any of the contradictions and problems inherent to these post-Covid predictions, you will be labelled as a conspiracy theorist. Amidst the global commotion caused by the coronavirus pandemic, it is easy to imagine the world’s leaders and corporations taking advantage of the chaos to impose more control over the population.

Disproof

This is a mix of several recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about global elites secretly ruling the world, in this case taking advantage of the Covid-19 pandemic to impose their agenda, and merged with negative messages about Greta Thunberg, Bill Gates and Pope Francis, all of them frequent targets of pro-Kremlin disinformation.

Contrary to the claim, the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset is an initiative aiming to start a dialogue among global leaders on reverting the negative consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, reducing inequality and setting new societal priorities including climate and environment, not a plan for global control. The article is also part of a wider disinformation campaign on the coronavirus pandemic.

See other examples in our database, such as claims that the EU prohibits countries from saving its citizens from Covid-19; that the AstraZeneca vaccine is “NATO’s vaccine”; that Pfizer falsified the trials for its coronavirus vaccine; that globalists engineered medical tyranny; that the EU’s decision not to procure the Sputnik V vaccine is incomprehensible, and that other vaccines may be dangerous; or that it is absurd to suggest that Russia may inspire coronavirus-related conspiracy theories.

The US enters an era of neo-liberal totalitarianism

A new age is dawning in the US, that of neo-liberal totalitarianism, which will bring a new wave of censorship, political witch hunts of the “white oppressors” and the supporters of Trump. The neo-liberal agenda is likely to dominate all spheres of life, especially in the US, but it will also start leaking throughout the world.

Disproof

A conspiracy theory, presented without any evidence, smearing Joe Biden.

The Presidential election in November 2020 gave a clear victory for Joe Biden. 20 January 2021 marks the transfer of power from the incumbent president to the President-Elect. Neither witch-hunts, nor totalitarianism is on the agenda for Biden’s government.

NATO prepares to attack Russia

The Alliance prepares to attack Russia.

NATO’s aggressive actions near Russia’s borders may indicate the alliance’s preparation for an attack.

Disproof

This is a recurring disinformation narrative about an alleged belligerent NATO, portraying the Alliance as a threat to peace.

NATO is a defensive alliance, whose purpose is to protect its member states. NATO is regularly updating the military requirements for civilian infrastructure, at a time when there are increased challenges to security.

Russia is not a party of the conflict in Ukraine at all

In the view of the German government, Russia does not exert sufficient influence on the Donetsk and Luhansk Republics. It should be noted here: Russia is not a party to the conflict at all, but actually a mediator. Regardless of this, it is being overburdened with sanctions – an absolutely cynical process.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the alleged lack of evidence of the presence of Russian troops involved in the war in East Ukraine. There is irrefutable evidence of direct Russian military involvement in eastern Ukraine.

The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that "the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February 2014 when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government".
