Just Say No: The Grand Refusal
Fighting the Great Reset
What can be done to stop the Great Reset? Here’s Michael Rectenwald’s plan, reproduced from The Great Reset and the Struggle for Liberty. (See my review here, and my interview with Michael here.)
As you can see from #9, this list is designed to be shared. So please spread it around, and comment here. Do you have anything to add?
Nine-Point Plan for Stopping the Great Reset
Refuse CBDC (Central Bank Digital currency).
Reject Internet of Bodies (IoB) technologies, the installation of devices in your body, the Metaverse, and transhumanism.
Refuse wearables reputedly meant for health concerns.
Reject personal carbon footprint tracking technologies, including those embedded in credit cards.
Reject mRNA “vaccines.”
Reject the Metaverse.
Reject brain-cloud interfaces.
Refuse digital identity.
“Inclusion” means totalitarianism.
Practice the free market.
Reduce/eliminate dependence on the state.
Disengage, as much as possible, from establishment institutions, including most educational institutions.
Become or remain as entrepreneurial as possible.
Buy locally, from farmers’ markets, etc.
Establish parallel economies and parallel social networks.
Consider joining independent communities, such as freedom cells.
Divest from ESG stocks and electronically traded funds (ETFs) that include ESG-indexed stocks.
Transfer your investments into non-ESG-reporting stocks and EFTs.
Assist in bringing antitrust legislation against ESG investing by coordinating a class. If you are an attorney-at-law specializing in antitrust, consider organizing a class action or filing a motion.
Remove money from ESG-reporting banks and avoid buying insurance from ESG-reporting insurance companies.
Put extreme pressure on government representatives to do the following:
protect national sovereignty and individual rights;
divest and disassociate from the World Economic Forum and all its tentacles;
withdraw from the UN and the World Health Organization;
withdraw state and other pensions from ESG-indexed stocks, withdrawing from ESG-investing asset managers such as BlackRock, Inc., State Street, and The Vanguard Group, among many others;
bring antitrust legislation against ESG investing.
Encourage the defection of elites from the globalist agenda.
Identify elites who might oppose the agenda for moral, ethical, or economic reasons and appeal to them by writing emails, letters, and by putting this book into their hands.
Network with like-minded individuals and spread this plan digitally and analogically.

This effort is being made easier by the emergence of new ETFs that explicitly avoid ESG-oriented investing. The charge is being led by Vivek Ramaswamy, whose Strive Asset Management has introduced at least four new ETFs focused “exclusively on excellence over social agendas imposed by ESG-linked asset managers.” See “Strive of DRLL Anti-ESG Fame to Launch Four New ETFs,” DailyAlts, August 25, 2022.
Most national banks are onboard the ESG train but so too are many credit unions and local and regional banks. For a list of the latter, see Amy Bergen, “15 Banks Putting Social Responsibility First: MONEYUNDER30,” Money Under 30, June 1, 2022. Check your bank by searching for the bank name and “ESG.”
A bill has been introduced in by U.S. House Republicans to do just that. The “Defund Davos Act,” H.R. 8748 reads: “No funds available to the Department of State, the United States Agency for International Development [USAID], or any other department or agency may be used to provide funding for the World Economic Forum.” See Scott Perry, Tom Tiffany, and Lauren Boebert, “H. R. 8748: To Prohibit Funding for the World Economic Forum,” Congress.gov, August 26, 2022. See also Natalie Winters, “New: ‘Defund Davos’ Bill Would Deny World Economic Forum Taxpayer Cash,” The National Pulse, August 29, 2022.
As noted in Chapter 6, this effort is already underway. See “To: Laurence D. Fink, CEO BlackRock Inc., from 19 U.S. Attorneys General,” Texas Attorney General, August 4, 2022. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has already eliminated ESG considerations from state pension investments. See “Governor Ron DeSantis Eliminates ESG Considerations from State Pension Investments,” Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, August 23, 2022.
ESG-indexing may very well constitute an antitrust violation. See Mark Brnovich, “Opinion | ESG May Be an Antitrust Violation,” The Wall Street Journal, March 6, 2022. Even industry experts acknowledge the “risk.” See “The Intersection between ESG Efforts and Antitrust Law: Insights: Vinson & Elkins LLP,” Vinson & Elkins, July 14, 2022.
I have something to add. It has to do with the development and widespread use of what I think of as active-defense technologies. I'm still working out the kinks, but the general idea is to leverage recent "obsolete gen tech" to build and protect parallel societies/economies.
Thank you for making this available and sharable.
I will be able to share this with more people than I will persuade to read the whole book. It's a very well written book. I found the way the ESG scheme is further weaponizing the corporations against us to be especially scary. We really need to defund the psychopaths.
