In keeping with the World Economic Forum’s Orwellian promise to everyone that “you’ll own nothing and be happy,” so-called “institutional investors” have been jumping into the real estate market in droves lately and buying up houses left and right.

“Institutional investors” are, of course, the big players on the financial scene — investment banks, hedge funds and so on. The clear purpose of these moves is to keep the common man from owning any real estate, and hence to prevent him from developing or maintaining any sort of personal or financial independence.

In short, the goal of the financial elite is to lock you into their economic paradigm, where they rigidly control everything, steward all resources, make money no matter what happens and essentially hold the power of life and death in their hands.

This is why Bill Gates has made moves recently that have transformed him into the largest landowner in America and why Mark Zuckerberg has recently bought enormous tracts of land in Hawaii.

An Elite Desperate for More Power

Predictably, these naked power plays are being spun and justified as measures that will allegedly benefit the common man. As Bloomberg’s Karl W. Smith informs us, “a nation of renters could lead to a world where location decisions are driven far more by personal preferences and life-cycle demands.”

Even if it’s true that renting rather than owning property provides one with greater flexibility, this misses a crucial point: that flexibility comes at a price. He who owns land and resources gets to dictate the terms under which those things may be used.

The result is as predictable as it is dystopian: The elite will demand obedience in all things and will cut off those who resist from the rest of society.

There are many ways to describe this looming Great Reset system. One is that it’s simply global communism. The definition of socialism or communism is state ownership of the means of production. Land is one of the principal means of production. If a small group of financial or business elites — all of whom owe significant amounts of their power and wealth to their government connections rather than to any skill in satisfying consumer demands on the free market — control most or all of the land, that is de facto land socialism.

The same could be said of any other productive resources, which the political and business elites steering the Great Reset would also like to put into their own hands.

Another way to describe this system is to refer to it as a form of feudalism. It is extremely ironic that the Great Reset, which bills itself as the wave of the future, would actually mean a return to the hidebound and oppressive old system that free-market capitalism replaced.
