The Great Reset Community Code of Conduct
How to find us
We're in quite a few places, and
looking to expand; please let us know if you have any
Diversity is a great strength of any community, and our TGR one
is no exception to this. (Remember, the audience for our message is
the very definition of diverse.) However, it can also lead to
communication issues and unhappiness. To that end, we have a few
ground rules that we ask people to adhere to. This code applies
equally to founders, mentors and those seeking help and
This isn’t an exhaustive list of things that you can’t do.
Rather, take it in the spirit in which it’s intended—a guide to
make it easier to enrich all of us, and the wider world that we are
trying to motivate.
If you believe someone is violating the code of conduct, we ask
that you report it by:
- 'at mentioning' the local room/group administrator, jlj, jlj_
(@jlj:matrix.org), JJ, etc.; and, should they not respond promptly,
- sending an email to the
Code of Conduct
- Be friendly and patient.
- Be welcoming. We strive to be a community that
welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities.
This includes, but is not limited to members of any race,
ethnicity, culture, national origin, colour, immigration status,
social and economic class, educational level, sex, sexual
orientation, gender identity and expression, age, size, family
status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical
- Be considerate. Your work will be used by
other people, and you in turn will depend on the work of others.
Any decision you take will affect others, and you should take those
consequences into account when making decisions. Remember that,
broadly speaking, we're a global community, so you might not be
communicating in someone else's primary language.
- Be respectful. Not all of us will agree all
the time, but disagreement is no excuse for poor behaviour and poor
manners. We might all experience some frustration now and then, but
we cannot allow that frustration to turn into a personal attack.
It’s important to remember that a community where people feel
uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one. Members of
this Matrix room should be respectful when dealing with other
members, as well as with people in the wider Great Reset community
- Be careful in the words that you choose. We
are a community of professionals, and we conduct ourselves
professionally. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other
participants. Harassment and other exclusionary behaviour aren't
acceptable. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Violent threats or language directed against another
- Discriminatory jokes and language.
- Posting sexually explicit or violent material.
- Posting (or threatening to post) other people's personally
identifying information ("doxing").
- Personal insults, especially those using racist or sexist
- Unwelcome sexual attention.
- Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.
- Repeated harassment of others. In general, if someone asks you
to stop, then stop.
- When we disagree, try to understand why.
Disagreements happen all the time, and our community will be no
exception. It is important that we resolve disagreements and
differing views constructively. Remember that we’re different.
Being unable to understand why someone holds a viewpoint doesn’t
mean that they’re wrong. Don’t forget that it is human to err and
blaming each other doesn’t get us anywhere. Instead, focus on
helping to resolve issues and learning from mistakes.
- We care about accessibility. We are a
text-first community, aiming to be as screen-reader-friendly as
possible. (Many Matrix clients are not, but you can also access
this room via IRC, in the #tgr channel at IRCNow.org.) If you do want to share an
image or a video, that's OK; but please also include a short text
summary of its contents, so everyone can participate in any
- We are an evidence-based community. We believe
that the best conversations are rooted in evidence, largely free
from assumptions and bias. (This is a goal; it's next to impossible
to attain, but we can aim for it!) This is best illustrated with an
example: quite a few people have previously linked to
a blog post from 2016, claiming that it proves that the WEF are
against ownership. [Edit: Possible broken hyperlink. The
Wayback Machine has copies; I've hosted a
stripped-down version of one of them, for your
convenience.] The text of this post could be seen as one piece
of evidence in favour of this view. However, against it are:
In summary, we are a Show, Don't Tell room; please
do a bit of research around the arguments you are presenting, and
walk us through your reasoning; it will enrich our discussions, and
benefit all, yourself included!
- It's now five years old;
- It was a guest blog post, by a Danish MP, not a WEF
- It was updated with an author's note clarifying that this
wasn't the intention of the post—
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
- It stands in contrast to most of the WEF's messaging, before
and since; and
- There is another
seemingly-credible source presenting research that supports this
