The Great Reset is a plan by the World Economic Forum, imagined by a gentleman named Klaus Schwab.

The plan is somewhat controversial, with some media outlets portraying it as an agenda to abolish property rights as we know it.

I saw this tweet, allegedly by WEF, that says "you will own nothing":

You will own nothing

Is this plan aimed at abolishing property rights?

    I’m voting to close this question because - at the moment - it is a question about the alleged hidden motivations of a small group of people, and there is no way such a question can be answered. However, maybe the Insiders show you link to makes a specific testable claim. I watched for a while, and didn't hear any. Please find the specific claim being made and transcribe it (with a timestamp), so readers don't need to sit through 10 minutes of propaganda to hear it.

    @Fizz: The tweet seems unrelated to the project. I don't know if the OP linked the two or one of his sources.

    "Owning nothing and being happy" sounds a lot like end-stage capitalism where interest rates are zero, asset prices are infinity, and everything must be rented.

    @user253751: We can speculate about what is meant by reading the title alone, but that isn't helpful, especially if the article isn't related.

Not an answer, but regarding that specific post, the author clarifies:


Author's note: Some people have read this blog as my utopia or dream of the future. It is not. It is a scenario showing where we could be heading - for better and for worse. I wrote this piece to start a discussion about some of the pros and cons of the current technological development. When we are dealing with the future, it is not enough to work with reports. We should start discussions in many new ways. This is the intention with this piece.

  • if its not an answer, why?

    @Topcode I don't know anything about the WEF or what their claims or goals are... someone can probably make a more comprehensive answer
