It’s been an amazing week in Zihuantanejo, Mexico where people have gathered for The Greater Reset. The five nights of the activation (not a conference, not a festival) we’re filled with inspiring and empowering talks on the agora, health and education, reconnecting with nature, the digital revolution, and community. The positive energy in the room was palpable and over the next couple of days, weeks, and months I have a feeling we’re going to be hearing amazing stories about how people have taken what they’ve learned and transformed the world around them.
The central theme of The Greater Reset was really all about solutions. While the technocratic parasites at the World Economic Forum simultaneously hosted their annual Davos meeting to discuss mass vaccinations, central bank digital currencies, and US foreign policy we were talking about homesteading, a decentralized Internet, and creating freedom cells. There’s no competition as to which future sounds brighter.
There’s a lot to digest from over 20 hours of conversation but below is an attempt at distilling the problems that were discussed and solutions that were proposed. Those with the time to watch the whole week’s talks are encouraged to do so but otherwise this hopefully creates an easy way to focus in on what interests you most. Click on each speaker’s name for a link to their talk.
Day 1: The Agora
The goal of agorism is the agora. The society of the open marketplace as near to untainted by theft, assault, and fraud as can be humanly attained is as close to a free society as can be achieved. And a free society is the only one in which each and every one of us can satisfy his or her subjective values without crushing others’ values by violence and coercion.
– Samuel Edward Konkin III
Rosa Koire, author of Behind The Green Mask: UN Agenda 21, perfectly captured the mission of The Greater Reset during her presentation. That is to say she expertly summarized the problem posed by Agenda 21, which is one version of the technocratic elite’s plans to control all life on this planet, and provided numerous solutions. The best part? They are simple and can be practiced anywhere. Joy, laughter, dance, decentralization, and community are all forms of resistance to Agenda 21 but time is of the essence. We must resist now.
Live from Mexico, co-host of The Greater Reset, Derrick Broze gave the audience three choices for going forward.
Exit and build: leave your current geographic location in search of more freedom. Once there, start building a new life and a new community.
Hold down the fort: Maybe packing up and leaving isn’t possible. That’s okay. You can stay where you are but there’s still work to be done. Start by connecting with other like-minded people in your area to pool thoughts and resources while finding strength in community. Freedom cells are a great way to go about this.
Apathy and death: The last option is to just let the powers that shouldn’t be continue on their destructive path of enslaving the planet. Do not allow yourself make this choice.
While the process of choosing one of the first two options may be daunting the silver lining is that there is no wrong answer. Evaluate you circumstances and do what is best for you.
One of the co-organizer’s of the event, John Bush was up next to deliver a message on why the agora is such a powerful tool against tyranny. It doesn’t require marching in the streets, or signing a petition, or voting, or burning down cities. It just requires saying, “we don’t want your system” and walking away. As we would find out over the course of the next couple of days there is a whole new beautiful system ready and waiting for anyone looking to opt out.
Is a reset of the economy in order? Researcher and writer Charles Eisenstein explored the possibility of how an economic reset could actually work to the betterment of mankind.
Agorists, Mike Swatek and Sally Mayweather (aka Sal The Agorist) talked about their personal experiences in bringing agorism to life. These guys covered so much ground form homesteading to crypto that no summary can properly do their panel justice. Just have a listen and see what you can apply to your own life.
The one, the only, James Corbett closed out the night with a topic that only he could do justice to: survival currency. We all know that social credit scores and central bank digital currencies are certainties unless we put alternatives in place. But which alternative is best? There are endless opinions on what makes crypto superior to gold and vice versa. Others believe that we must return to bartering. Still others say local paper currencies are the way forward. These topics can and should be debated but ultimately, if there isn’t agreement amongst your community as to which they will use, what good are they?
Day 2: Health and Education
We all know there’s something (read: many things) wrong with the public education system. Julianne Romanello opened day two by demonstrating how in today’s world where the education system, the surveillance state, and human capital bonds are combining to make matters even worse. However, she also gave us the solution that would be echoed throughout the day: opt out of the public education system.
A brighter note was hit in the next talk by Kelly Brogan and Sayer Ji who explored what it is to love in this time of discord and division. Love can help us give us sovereignty, connect spiritually, and support our emotional and physical well-being. We all need to remember this now more than ever.
Lainie Liberti, one of the other speakers to join us in person at The Greater Reset, educated the audience on creating a family culture based on consent. Laine drew on her extensive background in education and as a mother to offer families a way to build their dynamic around consent by asking three simple questions:
- What is your family structure?
- What are your values as a family?
- What are your rituals and traditions?
With these questions answered the next step is to draw a plan together as a family.
Richard Grove has taken his years of knowledge and experience as a tireless researcher and entrepreneur to create Autonomy, a course of action for individuals looking to undo the damage done by conventual schooling and step into a new era of personal autonomy and prosperity. In an age where we are constantly being bombarded with propaganda, the value of a mental self-defense course such as this is incalculable.
When Dolores Cahill took the stage the room in Zihuatanejo erupted. Any number of items on Dolores’s impressive resume could have been the subject of her talk but it was her latest venture at Freedom Airway & Freedom Travel Alliance (FAFTA) that was the focus and left the audience captivated. Our freedom to travel has been severely restricted in the age of COVID1984 but Dolores and the team at FAFTA are going to see that this tide is turned back.
Day 3: Reconnecting to Nature
Day 3 of The Greater Reset kicked off with an amazing homesteading panel. The day’s speakers, Marjory Wildcraft, Jack Spirko, and Christian Westbrook all gave their takes on the best way to start homesteading. No matter where you are or what your capable of, I promise there is something in this conversation for everyone.
Marjory Wildcraft, founder of The Grow Network among other things, gave us her take on what to expect as the chaos of 2020 seeps and spreads into 2021 and what we can do to avoid it. Essentially, hyperglobalization and hyperlocalization are on a collision course and we need to choose which path we want to take. Though the path is obvious (hyperlocalization) Marjory’s talk is worth listening to for practical advise on maintaining that trajectory.
The elite’s plans for a global transformation of the world’s food supply are not so well-hidden but were it not for the work of Christian Westbrook, aka the Ice Age Farmer, many would have missed the memo. In his talk, Christian continued the day’s theme of sidestepping the plans of the elite by encouraging people to grow their own food. If this sounds intimidating then Christian’s talk should put your mind at ease as this is something we’re all capable of.
Homesteading icon, Jack Spirko wrapped up the night with how those of us with an omnivore’s diet can produce protein right in our own backyards. This topic is a bit more complicated than just planting a small backyard garden but highlights just how far homesteading can be taking without making sacrifices like leaving modern society behind. Jack is also the host of The Survival Podcast, a daily online audio program that focuses on modern survival concepts and philosophy. This is mandatory listening as we learn our way forward towards self-reliance.
Day 4: The Digital Revolution
Another panel kicked off Thursday evening. This time the CEO’s of LBRY and Flote, two recent additions to the growing alternative social media landscape, joined the crowd to discuss the importance of building alternatives to replace YouTube and Facebook. Not that you’re still using those controlled platforms anyway, right?
Like the printing press and Internet before it, blockchain technology has the potential to be the next step in decentralizing power. That is, if we use it correctly. ArcturianX, a team member of GovernerDAO, spoke about this project’s focus on decentralizing social organizations using blockchain-based applications.
Encryption, like blockchain, is another technology that appears to be intimidating at first glance, and rightfully so, but utilizing it for our protection and privacy is actually rather simple. Matt McKibben’s talk, Data Privacy and Ownership Tools 101 broke things down simply and left everyone with solutions they could implement immediately.
The day may be soon approaching where we say RIP to the Internet as we know it. Sadly, it seems that it just isn’t fit for purpose anymore as censorship, deplatforming, and banning become the norm. What’s around the corner however, is bright and beautiful. Brady Gaisser and his team at Dweb are working on decentralizing the entire Internet to bring in a new age of free speech, privacy, and freedom online.
Before the night ended one more speaker would share their vision of a freer Internet. Ramiro Romani, stepped out from behind the scenes of The Greater Rest where he’d been making sure everything went off without a hitch, to talk about aboveground.market. This platform aims to allow users to trade openly and freely using crypto.
Day 5: Community
Intentional communities, whereby a community holds a common vision and offers high social cohesion, have existed for millennia. Maybe now is the time to make this way of life the norm. Rebecca Powers is currently manifesting this vision of the future in Austin, Texas and explains how anyone can do the same.
Self-governance sounds ideal but is it really that simple? Ted Rau tackles the tough questions that need answers to make it possible as he breaks down the idea of sociocracy.
A constant solution presented as part of The Greater Reset is the formation of freedom cells. John and Derrick, co-hosts of the event and active participants in the movement, were joined by Yohan in India, Nicole in Tennessee, and Lisa in Oklahoma to discuss how to activate a freedom cell in your area. This panel was one of the highlights of the week.
The last speaker of night circled back on the idea of intentional communities. Stephen Brooks, has spent the last 25 years building community in Costa Rica. Warmth and love radiated from the screen as Stephen shared his story of creating the Punta Mona Center and later co-founding and developing La Ecovilla, a 45 home sustainable community in San Mateo, Costa Rica. If you’ve ever dreamed of building anew in a tropical paradise, or right where you are, this talk will set you on the right course.
Day 6: Bonus Solutions
Not content with just five days of solutions, The Greater Reset featured one additional day of solution-oriented thinking on a number of subjects.
Teresa Montanino brought us back to day three of the event to discuss healthy solutions to the would-be elite’s plans for the future. Her solution? Bplanty, a global food sharing and exchange platform which aims to reconnect local food systems while empowering people.
While we’re liberating humanity, should we be liberating animals alongside us? Author, Will Tuttle makes his case as to why we should.
Those who follow the vaccine issue will be no stranger to the work of Christina Hildebrand. Since COVID1984, struck Christina has been investigating many angles of the issue including vaccines, masks and PCR tests. Her talk at The Greater Reset focused in on COVID vaccines, mandates, and what we can do to protect ourselves.
Rough waters may be on the horizon but permaculture designer and practitioner, Jonathan Ramirez offer some solutions by looking back through history at traditional farming techniques and indigenous survival techniques. The discuss caters to all levels of experience and should not be missed.
The first installment of The Greater Reset was closed out by Foster Gamble who discussed how to best get your local community organized and offered his take on how to activate your freedom cell. This whole activation is about moving beyond just talking about solutions and brining them to life which made Gamble’s talk the perfect conclusion.
Nobody walked away from this week feeling unmotivated to make change in this world. The reality is that it is needed now more than ever. Please do check out any or all of the speeches above and apply them to your life in any way possible.
Stay tuned as well, the next The Greater Reset activation will be held in May. More details to come.
