It seems the current situation has indeed been misnamed. And I am loathe to use the term, but need to for the purpose of this article. The Great Reset (nicely renamed The Great Resist, which is a much better vision), but the reset, seems to be for the benefit of a few under the guise of ‘for your safety’ and ‘for the greater good’ – two sayings which should not be trusted at all. You should understand personally for your safety and should also know when it’s for the greater good yourself, not because someone else has decided it. Because it is their idea of good they are working towards, there is no collective greater good currently. It would require enough living space, freedom and advancement emotionally from a great number of people for us to achieve a greater good. So I don’t focus on that now, there is no time, and it’s just as much of an illusion as everything else.
Back to the word great. Because it has been so firmly affixed to a plan as named above, I gave it thought. Was it just to try and be grandiose and claim its great in advance, thereby trying to create said greatness by invoking it? Or is it a calling card, a trail and marker? I decided to cover others and speculate on the significance. Why were certain things named as such for a purpose, rather than for what they were? Once you see the list, you might work out where this is going.
The Great Fire of London – 1666 (oh look, a bit of symbolism there with the date), but anyway, a rather convenient fire it turns out for a London reset it seems.
The Great Depression – 1929 – 1933 officially as the worst bit (again a special number), but says it went through to the late 30’s. This seems to have been another financial reset and displacement of people.
The Great Flood – A bit further back, and no specific date on this one as it is a biblical reference, and funnily enough, throughout most ancient civilisations and legends around the world. They all have a ‘flood story’. So make of that what you will, but as we have referenced it as Great, I suspect it is relevant. And if you subscribe to the crater theory, then you may understand why it’s important.
The Great Plague – 1665-1666 (There it is again) – seems like London was having a crappy time of it back then, just before the fire neatly sorted out loads of issues, they had a plague outbreak as well. You would think the larger, previous outbreak would have been named as such, but no, they went with the last and smallest outbreak being named The Great Plague of London.
Great Britain – apparently termed in 1603 by King James I of England (you know, the one who declared witchcraft and burned all those ‘witches’), it makes me wonder why this place is named as such. Because we are a very small island to have been a huge ‘great’ empire, so I have questions on that.
The Great Famine (1845-1852) Nothing great about it at all, but they cleared out lots of people, starved lots more and obviously got what they wanted from that. Like people say, if you control the food, you control the people. On the face of it growing up, I believed it was a potato problem and people either left or starved. I hadn’t realised it was more complex and that the crown continued to have food sent out of Ireland over the mainland, thereby ensuring they starved. If history and current events teach you anything that you understand and know to be real, is that people and authority can be unbelievably cruel.
I’ll keep thinking on these as they are a work in progress, and may be just another part of history that in fact is exactly as they say, and there is nothing to see here. But maybe not…
