I’ve been wondering about this guy for a while. The stuff he says is beyond outrageous. If he means what he says, one can imagine him in the town square with his head and hands in stocks while people throw things at him as a tape of what he says plays in a loop. But most of the clips I have seen have been edited in such a way that its not unfathomable that he actually was trying to warn, rather than advocate about these things.
Having put my uncertainty about him in a previous post, some excellent people sent in links that are less ambiguous about Mr. Great Reset, Yval Noah Harari. Lets give a listen:
His Youtube channel. he is hawking a book. Someone should try offering him Ukrainian digital Schwabs for one. Interesting that famous villains either seem to have three names, like Lee Harvey Oswald, or just one. Like Blofeld, or Hitler. Sometimes two, if they are both the same. Like Sirhan Sirhan, or Boutros Boutros. Here is his website.
Early on in this clip he makes an interesting inversion of reality. He talks about when people are of no use to the economy. One might look at that a couple of ways. In the communist sense, as the founder of the UK communist think tank, The Fabian Society does, where people who “can’t pull their own weight or perhaps a little more” should be “killed with a humane gas.” Don’t believe me, believe George Bernard Shaw.
Another way, or perhaps just another aspect of the same way, could be that he sees real live human beings as being subservient to the fiction which is the economy. In other words, a word we use to describe the hive activity of us all trading goods and services with each other using a medium of exchange, (which we have unfortunately allowed the government to manage) the ‘economy’ is now the real thing. And like a giant statue of Baal, those who cannot service it should be sacrificed to it.
South Park made a really brilliant episode more or less on this. It was inspired by one of the most interesting bits of anti-communist novel writing ever, The Master and Margarita, and made into a 30 minute cartoon called, Margaritaville. Season 13 episode 3. Well worth watching. Especially if you are familiar with The Master and Margarita.
The Master and Margarita can be seen as a 12 part movie on Youtube, each part being about an hour. So, its a hell of a commitment. But its very much worth it. Not that its in any way connected to Mr. Harari. Or maybe it is.
