The idea that TPTB have a "depopulation agenda" is longstanding in conspiracy circles. There are numerous theories that posit the elite have a
long-term goal of decreasing the global population.
On one hand this makes a lot of sense from the perspective of the psychopathic TPTB, because we "useless eaters" (as the elite see us) threaten to
suck resources from the greedy elites and also threaten the status quo with revolution or rebellion if things get hairy enough.
On the other hand, however, a radical depopulation event would in many ways decrease the power of the elite. The more people the elite have
under their thumbs, the more power they have. And aren't TPTB all about multiplying their power? If you have a billion people under your thumb, you
have more power than if you have only 100 million, right? You can sell more, have bigger markets, and have bigger labor pools, meaning cheaper labor.
You also have people in greater misery, which makes them easier to control.
History offers lessons in this: When the great plague hit Europe and wiped out 1/3 of the population, the power of the feudal nobility dropped
somewhat. Poor peasants who had lived in crowded conditions were able to spread out and move into bigger houses whose owners had died, making them at
least slightly less miserable than they had been in comparison to the nobility, and thus less desperate and harder to control. It became harder for
nobles to keep labor on their estates because labor was scarcer and thus in more demand, meaning they had to offer them better conditions to keep them
from going to another estate or just striking out on thier own into newly empty land. See how that works?
So it seems to me this is a kind of conundrum becase a depopulation agenda would have both benefits and serious drawbacks for TPTB.
