I hope that this post does not come across as low effort trolling, as I think a thread like this is a good idea and I haven't quite seen it done exactly this way before.

PREFACE - Let's not attempt to prove conspiracy in terms of where the virus came from or anything like that. Let's focus purely on identifying as many big brother agendas that are substantially furthered (boosted/helped/whatever) by just this ONE THING. The virus. It just occurs to me that this one thing is basically a wet dream for an authoritarian state.

Here is an example of what I'm looking for in this thread - COVID-19 is a perfect excuse for full time tracking and spying on every single person living on this planet. Now of course you can argue that this was already happening to some degree but this provides a flawless permission slip for it and basically will be impossible to challenge as things drag on.

I would prefer we don't argue. Obviously, I want this thing to be over as much as anyone does. I don't know or care if the virus is manmade at this point. I do not want it. I do not encourage anyone to do anything foolish or give the authorities a hard time. That actually makes things worse for people who care about civil liberties.

I'm putting this in General Conspiracies because I assume that we can all agree there are people who can/will take full advantage of this crisis (manufactured or not). Again, it's best in this thread to avoid stuff that hasn't actually been mentioned by the MSM. Things like "contact tracing", "Immunity cards" and tracking of people through their smartphones have actually been seriously suggested by TPTB so this isn't made up fear mongering.

So that's it. Name every agenda you can think of that is advanced by the virus.

Nice idea for an OP.

The main agenda of this event could be to make more people dependent on the government, at many levels.

I am interested to see what others think about this OP and hope it doesn't turn into R vs D.

Damn bro. You spent most of your OP throwing disclaimers. No need to fear.

I like your idea. However, the possibilities are endless as to why.

That’s why so many of us have been on ATS for so long. We saw it coming — in one way or the other... 🍻

This is true. But I think it is a good idea to put as many of them as we can in one place because it is just so damn convenient for the types of people who very much want a hardcore big brother state. It's a swiss army crisis really. I think it is more convincing if you look at as many angles as you can.

Somewhere between eleventeen and 42......
Talking with family I checked off some boxes last week......

Loss of faith in community and family.

Wreak financial havoc and implement ruin in status quo

Weaken world’s psychological strength and social norms

Question governments and their responses, while also making us completely dependent on OS...

Further the Anti- anti-vaccine propaganda playground

“We NEED a vaccine, or we will all die horrible deaths, it’s the ONLY way to Normalcy... hey it’s just an RFID....

“Let’s see if EVENT 201 works”

Mobile device tracking/listening in name of nat’l security/health

Crashing Economies/Markets.

“Make the plebs question everything...”

Foment WW3

Cloak and Dagger geopolitical schemes...

Wreck faith in infrastructure, food supply, medical and science providing answers/expertise Etc etc

Consolidate financial and political power, while furthering divisiveness amongst the common good

Hegelian Dialectic mostly....I could go on and on

The obvious one to me is to see how far they can push against people's civil liberties before they start to push back.

Your last words above are paramount. As many angles as we can. Focusing on ''government'' while certainly an obvious angle, is to myopic.

Global healthcare for all. It gives a larger pool of money to siphon from and allows them the ability to control us through each other.

More global insitutions overall.

They will eventually announce China's mistakes, but use it as a tool to show how the nationalism that is spreading throughout the world puts us all at harm.

A lot of countries set very dangerous precendents that will inevitably be used again, rights will be lost forever each time.

They will charge us to install infrared and face detection camera's for all government cctv camera's, they will be governments databased rather than on site storage.

Forced vaccines. Limiting rights based on being vaccinated or not.

Biometric tracking on your phones all government databased.

Very true, it was not just the agenda of one government. This was an international effort it seems. Some group or cabal.

Ahhhh.... how to do that? Well the plan may be forming right nowThere's talk of another Stimulus coming where everyone 16 and older would get a $2000 monthly check. *Except for high earners like something over 100K*, but the rest would feed off of the government for the remainder of the year or six months, at which time it would be determined if it needed extending.... ?! Give Americans time off like that and free money and destroy the economy and herald hyperinflation. Done deal, dependents, or you might call basically slaves to the system.

Be careful what you wish for

Those in control and who have power over others always seek more power and more control. History is a big lesson in that department. Even with the Constitution of America there are those who claim it is outdated and they have a better idea about a society that functions according to their Utopian ideas.

It is what it is but everyone in America should be thankful that a bunch of old White dudes long ago were so far sighted when they put pen to paper and gave the people the power and not the government. That does not mean there are those both in and out of government who will do everything they can to whittle away any rights us peons have.

Digital currency is a concern as how easy it would be to wipe out your life saving with nothing but a stroke on a computer key.

Facial recognition like China has so if you are caught Jay Walking your social score gets points deducted. If enough points are taken away no travel, no credit, and maybe no job.

Thinking about it I would say look at any dictatorship; for that is the road map to many say we need..

Simple answer is just about all of them, which have all been mentioned in MSM, at some stage or another, if you look.

Let criminals out of jails/prisons and replace them with people bucking the infringements on their constitutional rights then the remainder will be afraid of being jailed and will toe the line.

Collect as much DNA as possible by "testing" and those who protest the destruction of the constitution can be framed for crimes and imprisoned.

Completely take over all food supply and thus control the populace. No microchipped vaccine? No soup for you!

Make the majority dependent on government hand outs. People on assistance tend to vote for whoever promises them MORE assistance (Bring on the Socialist candidates!).

Attempted destruction of organized religion by disallowing in-person services. Most who go extremely long periods without attending services in person or switch to services on internet/television less likely to return on a regular basis.

Destruction of cash transactions and switch to digital only. Businesses deny cash payments as possibly tainted.

Just a few possibilities off the top of my head.

I'm guessing that creepy old "elite" perverts get bonus points. The media get "frequent liar miles"...

Epstein didn't kill himself. He cashed in his points...

Flagging for later comment. I really want to think about this for a bit. It's been a while since I've pulled out my yarn and thumbtacks.
