“New Normal On Hold”
Global Research, December 14, 2021
he World Economic Forum (WEF) which represents the Western financial elites, played a key role in the launching of the March 11, 2020 lockdown, which was conducive to a Worldwide process of economic and social chaos.
And now what they are saying is that another devastating Worldwide economic and social crisis is likely to occur in the wake of the so-called Covid-19 pandemic.
The WEF is now pointing to: “A cyber-attack with COVID-like characteristics”, which promises to be far more devastating and chaotic than the Covid-19 pandemic.
The World Economic Forum’s “Concept 2021”. Cyber Polygon Scenario
The World Economic Forum (WEF) which co-sponsored Event 201, the table top simulation of the corona pandemic together with John Hopkins and the Gates Foundation in October 2019, has been involved in another strategic exercise entitled Concept 2021. The latter is described as an:
“international capacity building initiative aimed at raising the global cyber resilience”.
It is not a table top simulation comparable to Event 201.
Last year it was conducted at the height of the lockdown via video conferencing. This year, the 2021 Conference “discussed the “key risks of digitalization”.
Those participating in the Cyber Polygon Exercise (2020)included high tech companies including IBM, numerous banks and financial institutions, internet companies, cyber security agencies, corporate and government media, think tanks, law enforcement agencies including Interpol with representatives from 48 countries.
The exercise is an obvious means to secure reliable partners and develop strategic alliances. In this regard, there were numerous representatives from Russia and countries of the former Soviet Union, including major Russian banking interests, communications and media companies. All in all 42 partners. No corporate /governmental partners from China, participated in the simulation.
There was also a training program with 200 teams from 48 countries.

Cyber Attack With Covid-like Characteristics
Simulation of A Cyber-Attack. Towards A Complete Halt to Power Supply, Communications, Transportation
Klaus Schwab, founder and Executive Director of the WEF and architect of the “Great Reset” describes the crisis scenario as follows:
“The frightening scenario of a comprehensive cyber attack could bring a complete halt to the power supply, transportation, hospital services, our society as a whole. The COVID-19 crisis would be seen in this respect as a small disturbance in comparison to a major cyberattack.” (emphasis added)
Jeremy Jurgens, WEF Managing Director:
“I believe that there will be another crisis. It will be more significant. It will be faster than what we’ve seen with COVID. The impact will be greater, and as a result the economic and social implications will be even more significant.” (emphasis added)
The implications of these bold “predictions” which represent the interests of the financial establishment are far-reaching.
What they describe is a scenario of economic and social chaos involving the disruption of communications systems, the internet, financial and money transactions (including SWIFT), the power grid, global transportation, commodity trade, etc., as well as likely “geopolitical dislocations”.
The opening session (July 2021) of Cyber Polygon 2021 was conducted (video below) by the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin together with the Director General of the WEF Klaus Schwab.
According to Mikhail Mishustin, Prime Minister of the Russian Federation
Addressing cyberthreats and securing our common digital future are among the priorities of every government and company. …
Is this scenario a dress rehearsal for a forthcoming cyber crisis?
The geopolitics of this exercise are complex. While Russia is routinely threatened by US-NATO, the Russian Federation is a partner of this WEF initiative, which is largely dominated by Wall Street and the Western financial establishment. .
Why was China –which is an ally of Russia– excluded from the Cyber Polygon Exercise? The major partners were from the former Soviet block.

The Simulation conducted in July 2021 is entitled Cyber Polygon 2021
Is a “Cyber Attack Scenario” contemplated by the financial establishment?
Russia’s financial and banking establishment were actively involved in the Cyber Scenario. Was the exercise intended to create divisions between China and Russia?
While one cannot speculate, the matter must nonetheless be addressed.
And who will be blamed if the Cyber Scenario goes live?
Engineered economic and social chaos. Is that not part of a US hegemonic project?
