Diana Johnstone, author of “The Great Pretext … for Dystopia, is horrified by World Economic Forum founders Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret’s COVID-19: The Great Reset:

“Throughout the book, the authors seem to gloat over the presumed effects of widespread ‘fear’ of the virus, which is supposed to condition people to desire the radical changes they envisage. They employ technocratic psychobabble to announce that the pandemic is already transforming the human mentality to conform to the new reality they consider inevitable.”

Is WEF a lobby for techno-tyranny? Might COVID-19 have been deliberately unleashed to provide the Shock Doctrine style catastrophe necessary to achieve the changes the WEF and other transhumanists and techno-oligarchs want?

Diana Johnstone lives in Paris. Her latest book is Circle in the Darkness: Memoirs of a World Watcher. She is also the author of Fools’ Crusade: Yugoslavia, NATO, and Western Delusions. Her previous book was Queen of Chaos: the Misadventures of Hillary Clinton. The memoirs of Diana Johnstone’s father Paul H. Johnstone, From MAD to Madness, was published by Clarity Press, with her commentary. She can be reached at [email protected] .

  1. All fair minded people (left, right, and everybody else) needs to agree that big tech censorship is totally unacceptable in any form.

    Likewise we should all agree that large tech giants should be publicly owned utilities.

    These two steps would make a _big_ positive change on everyone’s life.

    Ideology is not our friend–these are practical essential solutions.

    You can’t nationalize tech. That would offend all the dumbass libertarians on here.


    Naomi Klein makes more sense than this Schwab jack ass. This is one of those don’t know to laugh or cry deals.

    Thank you, Barrett. Diana Johnstone is one of the once-in-a-blue-moon people who make sense, entirely. Never mind the delivery. Your two cents on social media censorship and its development was worth a lot of dollars, too.

  5. Not one mention of the huge Blue & White elephant in the American living room? No offence meant Kevin, but first get back your own country by showing your countrymen the Elephant hiding in plain sight. That should be your initial strategy.

    I can’t play the audio. Is anyone else affected?

  7. Dianna Johnstone sounds so weak. An English Literature major no doubt. We have too many women assuming leadership roles. Where are the men? Time for men to be men. The globalists are a bunch of p………ies. We can smash them in the mouth, literally and figuratively. There are enough men left with big muscles and big balls. Yes, some of us must die but that is the cost of freedom. Let’s roll Gentlemen.

    Weak? She’s 86 years old, and an author, not a public speaker. Let’s see how strong you sound at that age.

    God love her! But we need strength now. We need real men to step up. The time for talk is over. Our enemies don’t care about Truth but only will to power. Communism is LIVING INSIDE THE LIE. Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. We cannot let this stand or there will be genocide in America.

  10. R2b says:

    She puts the finger on a US weak point.
    Socializing power.
    Thats Communism.
    But its really not the same.
    Socialism can endure, without being communism.
    Why doesn’t it?
    Inbred parties.
    So now we have PP-management.
    Just like WHO.
    Real democracy has been sold out.
    And democracy doesn’t work, if people dont educate themselves.
    Like now.
    They could just start with reading death-statistics, and compare it with covid-case propaganda, and see that something doesn’t add up.
    One hope though, is M Yeadon and W Wodarg.
    Maybe there are moore.

  11. Antiwar7 says:

    At 45:38 into the clip, Johnstone shows her wisdom: “I’m precisely in-between.” All organic systems should choose and aim for “in-between”.

    In this particular case, choosing which technology to pursue and invest in, it’s amusing to think that this particular answer, ‘to thoughtfully and as a group decide what technology to pursue’, is the same as the Amish answer. Which goes to show that for the broadest applications of this question, we should try to factor in as broad a group as possible (i.e., all of humanity) as to whose needs to consider when making these investment decisions.

  12. Antiwar7 says:

    This is gold:

    At 49:19 in the clip,

    Diana Johnstone: “If they’re rising, and we’re falling, it’d be in our interest to be on good terms with them… If we keep acting the way we do, we are forcing others to be as bad as we are. And they may be better at being as bad as we are, if we keep pushing them.”

    At 50:40,

    Diana Johnstone: “This world of paranoia, of just seeing enemies everywhere, is contagious… For the last decades, Russia just wanted to be friendly, and we [are] forcing them to be an enemy, because we say they’re an enemy. And that’s not going to make them any nicer. And it’s not going to make the Chinese any nicer, it’s not going to make anybody any nicer… The US paranoia is toxic, and it catches on. The others will get it… It’s suicidal, this Western policy.”

  13. Antiwar7 says:

    What can be done, to establish non-oligarch control over technology investment?

    Maybe some viral videos, leading to a good movie dramatizing what’s going on in a realistic way.

  14. Great interview . . thanks Kevin
