Michael Rectenwald stood strong for academic freedom at NYU for several years. Now he’s retired and still making waves! His new article “The Great Reset Rubric: Making Sense of Our Present Dystopia” argues that the oligarchs are using COVID as an excuse to impose “corporate socialism” i.e. neo-feudalism. Woke ideology and cancel culture, he says, are tools of the neo-feudalists: “Wokeness works by habituating the majority to the reduced expectations of the Great Reset. It does so by instilling a belief in the unworthiness of the majority to thrive, prosper, and enjoy their lives.”

  1. People forget that CIA propaganda, censorship and narratives could not be interjected into domestic news ‘spheres’ until Obama, with the abolition (“modernization”) of the Smith Mundt (Anti-Propaganda) Act in 2014. Now the CIA decides “all the news that’s fit to print” and speak, and transmit. The NSA/CIA is a much more sophisticated surgical torture tool relative to the blunt hammer of the simpleton Stasi.

  2. Hospitalized flu patients die at 7-9%, which is higher than hospitalized Covid-19 patients. Covid-19 is much more deadly on those 60 or older (95% of victims globally over age 60, over half of deaths over age 80). Flu hits children much harder and unlike Covid-19, children are the major vectors for spreading flu.

  3. Barrett contends that what is happening is not communism but in reality it is. Not the theoretical communist philosophical facade painted by Marx (Moses Mordecai Levy) or the the front men of the radical left such as Obama’s ghost writer Bill Ayers or a Jane Fonda. Rather what we are witnessing is the true communism that Zionist Jew Marx was spearheading for the early industrialists including Marx’s super rich uncle Lyon Philips who supported him for his entire career of subversion.

    Marx’s job was to divide and disorganize the Proletariat (workers) in order to make them weak and more vulnerable so as to be plundered by the new industrial (elite) class. This is the same thing happening today with the fake virus used as a cover for the financial plunder by the same elites today but made even worse because of their control of the Jew MSM and also by the accelerated predation of the banking cartel, another branch of the same Zionist elite oligarchy. It is the same tool of communism as in Marx day just dressed up in new “woke” clothes.

    Marx did not just focus on the workers but also also sought to create division between the Proletariat and the Bourgeoisie (middle class, small bus. owners) to cause further division and finally his appointed aim was to overthrow the monarchies in order to establish :”democracies” (governments run by Jews) that would inevitably lead to Socialism-Communism. The Zionist elite today are doing exactly the same thing in their push for “equality” and the Orwellian “animal farm” ruse of a UGI.

    Barrett and others try to make distinctions between the Corporations and the government and then it all gets labeled as Fascism. The problem is that whenever a government goes beyond basic functions such as basic defense, law and contract enforcement then it will always become taken over by the elite parasites who ultimately intend to harness the productivity of society to work for them (for your own good of course). The high level rent seeking phase as we saw in the bailout for billionaires in 08 and again as with vultures such as Black Rock now, would never have happened without the collision of big government doing the elites bidding using our shabbas goy congress, presidential puppets and the banking cartel with it’s TBTF banks and their corporate cronies.

    Real communism as outlined by Marx is the same thing as the degenerate parasite elites that control practically all of the Zionist governments of any consequence. Their aim is the same. Our puppet actor presidents, shabbas goy sinecures in congress, MSM media whores, academic prostitutes, medical racket shills and corporate front men along with super parasite elites such as eugenicist Gates and WEC Goon “you will own nothing and be happy” Klaus Shwab are moving the herd into the U.N. Sustainable Development Initiative Agenda 2030-21. This plan is just an updated version of communism (Judaism) as run in the USSR. Same austerity enforced with selective terrorism. Only difference will be better livestock control through better technology. Klaus was right about the first part anyway.

  4. “Harvard Kennedy School’s William Hogan is credited with designing the Texas energy market. As Texans froze and their water pipes burst, he reportedly remarked that the state’s energy market has functioned as designed. Hogan is right, which says a lot about how some [“free market”] economists think….”

    And that flaming liberal organ, the Wall Street Journal, has this to say about Texas’s “de-regulation” of energy production and distribution.

    “Those deregulated Texas residential consumers paid $28 billion more for their power since 2004 than they would have paid at the rates charged to the customers of the state’s traditional utilities, according to the Journal’s analysis of data from the federal Energy Information Administration….”

    Kevin Barrett is an academic dumb shit. He believes communism is the antithesis of capitalism and a workers’ rebellion, when in reality communism is just another tool of the oligarchs to enslave all humanity.

    What a silly comment.
    “Marx’s job was to divide and disorganize the Proletariat (workers) in order to make them weak and more vulnerable so as to be plundered by the new industrial (elite) class.”
    Excuse me, go back to 1830-40, how on earth could they have been “more vulnerable”. Read a bit of history or even Dickens or Zola – it will show that working class conditions, absent a program of genocide could hardly have been worse.
    “Marx did not just focus on the workers but also also sought to create division between the Proletariat and the Bourgeoisie (middle class, small bus. owners) to cause further division ”
    Strictly, you refer to the PETTY Bourgeoisie. And yes that division already existed. Rather than see there interests aligned with working people these small business owner identify with Elites. They aspire to be elite. That they will tend to ultimately end up with a larger plate of crumbs is a well worked cover up & self induced delusion.
    ” Barrett and others try to make distinctions between the Corporations and the government and then it all gets labeled as Fascism. The problem is that whenever a government goes beyond basic functions such as basic defense, law and contract enforcement then it will always become taken over by the elite parasites who ultimately intend to harness the productivity of society to work for them”
    Exclude the word “corpoations” & you get feudalism & early capitalism. Governments for 100’s of years did nothing (or little) for people. The whole “minimum Gov’ thing is pure Elitism.
    Sadly, you can see current ills, yet are so tangles up with Jew’s & communism (wow – Marx was a Jew — who knew? ”
    Incidentally, Marx may not known the “how to” but his goal was the withering away of the State, b/c educated autonomous humans, whose goals are freedom for all – in theory – don’t need a “State”.
    You can see the disease but are completely irrational as to the nature of the disease & it’s cure.
    One idea? Jew’s – Zionists – are to blame for a lot, but as a knee-jerk blame object….. well, that distorts things a bit.

    You think Marx goal was the withering of the state huh animalogic? Maybe you should read his manifesto. No power goes to the oppressed workers. Every plank in this inventory for the imposition of Judaism moves power to the top. The ultimate goal is abolition of all private property. More withering away of the state I guess. Who do think is going to control your property if you don’t? I kind of figure it will be the same Zionist elite that Marx (Levy) worked for, such as Gates who already owns about 280,000 acres of farm land in Jewmerica.

    Russia is a good example of what happened. Land was being rapidly dispersed to the peasants and the country was making lots of economic progress. Russia was a food exporter before the Bolshevik plunder and even produced more oil than the U.S. The Zionists had to move quickly in gaining control in Russia or it would have been too late. Even with massive assistance from the conspirators in the Wilson administration and Great Britain along with Jew Bankers all over the world it took about eight years for the Zionists to get full control of the country.

    Capitalism and free enterprise were raising the living standard of the workers everywhere that the dead hand of government could be held back. The elite had to stop this progress and eliminate any competition just as they are doing today with the fake virus as was done in 08 with the bailout for billionaires. Como of N.Y. is a good example. He is tied in with the Jews of Black Rock to run down real estate prices using the covid scam so the vultures can scoop up billions more. That is the reason Lyon Philips financed his degenerate nephew all his life. No withering of the state, just more concentration in the hands of the kakistocracy of criminals. They are doing the same thing as always.

    Your convolution of Russian communists & Zionists/Jews is a great convenience to your convoluted views.
    Example — both Jew’s & the West loved the Bolsheviks — which is why the funded & contributed $$ to the Whites in the Civil War. Oh, & Russian living standards rising — yes, slowly, but then a little thing known as the Great war intervened. Had it not do you really think the Bolsheviks had a snowball’s chance in hell of gaining power?
    As for your “views” on Marx? That he somehow wrote tirelessly for the benefit of Jewish capitalist elites? Simply nuts.
