Global Destruction, 
The COVID-19 Lockdown: Economic and Social Impacts/ By Peter Koenig, Global Research, July 25, 2020

Planned Destruction of World-wide Economy

What we have to realize is that the global, country-by-country destruction – happening simultaneously – is not a coincidence.

It has been planned for decades. Thousands of pages were written alone for the preparation of such documents, like the 2010 Rockefeller Report and the preparation of Event 201 in NYC on October 18, 2019, as well as “studies” for WHO to justify calling the new corona virus (SARS-2-2019 / COVID-19) a pandemic that eventually prompted a worldwide lockdown around mid-March 2020. 

To come up with these and more decision-making tools, leaders of the “deep state” and their henchmen had to sieve through volumes of countless pages and sit through dozens of secret meetings. Now, the unnamed people of the financial establishment and the Deep State have the world living – or dying? – in lockstep, precisely as predicted in the 2010 Rockefeller report (p.18, The Lockstep Scenario) (see below) and confirmed by Event 201. 

References to the 2010 Rockefeller Report and precursor drafts, as well as those that led to the “pandemic” and “lockdown” decisions were easily available only a few weeks ago. Today, the internet has been largely “cleaned” by Google, or debunked, declaring everything that points to the diabolical intentions of this “evil plan” as “fake news”.

Event 201, organized by John Hopkins with Gates and WEF consisted in a simulation exercise of the pandemic which we are living now:

“The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hosted Event 201, a high-level pandemic exercise on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. The exercise illustrated areas where public/private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.”,

Emerging from all this were documents over documents of instructions and scenarios, on how to control humanity – reduce the population – eugenics at their best – and how the small “Deep Dark Elite” will eventually have all of us under a mask, social distancing, avoiding that we talk to each other and unite.

Non-compliance may be punished. Refusal to go into quarantine – meaning into isolation – will put you in certain US States under surveillance by ankle monitors

It’s fear from an invisible enemy –  a virus – that threatens our lives, so they make us believe – and divide the believers from the non-believers, and propaganda demonizes the non-believers into hate objects – getting a disparaging hate-look by masked passers-by… yes, the old divide to conquer and rule. That’s what’s happening.

Destruction of the World Economy

In the meantime, the world economy is crumbling, bankruptcies abound – and related unemployment soars into unknown dimensions – unknown in mankind’s history – by far surpassing the so far worst crisis of 1929-33. And we haven’t even seen the tip of the iceberg yet.

After six months-plus into covid, ILO (International Labor Office) reports worldwide about half a billion people unemployed or under-employed. Of that, a staggering 267 million young people (aged 15-24) are not in employment, education or training, and many more endure substandard working conditions.

In the Global South – or the so-called developing countries, 60% to 70% of the labor force is informal, no social safety net, no social benefits – no contractual obligations by employers. The people are on their own. Locked away in quarantine? – How could they, they have to look for work, earning a daily meal for themselves, and often also for their families. Famine is already rampant. And death by famine is not reported, or simply ascribed to Covid-19, ”improving” the statistics for the diabolical masters.

At the height of the 2020 and-onwards-crisis – ILO predicts up to 2 billion people – 58% of the world’s total labor force might be unemployed or underemployed (world total labor force 2019: 3.46 billion). What does that say about poverty, about famine, about misery and despair – about death by a myriad of diseases, other than Covid, but rather related to lack of nutrition and health services, despair and ultimately suicide?

Peter Koenig and Michel Chossudovsky. Dialogue on the Economic Impacts

According to the World Food Program about 9 million people die annually from famine and hunger-related causes. This figure may – and likely will – skyrocket to 1.5 to 2.0 billion famine-vulnerable people, many of whom may die. Can you imagine – up to a quarter of the world population that may perish from lack of nutrition – due to the covid hoax, or rather due to the propaganda-driven Covid fear – followed scrupulously by all the governments of the globe – which is truly no coincidence. A wanton mismanagement of a fabricated crisis – that may bring about a quantum change in our civilization.

A team of ten renowned German medical doctors and professors, virologists and immunologists, were commissioned by the German Interior Ministry last May to analyze all facets (medical, economic, social) of the Covid crisis. They concluded that the German Government grossly mismanaged the corona-virus. The medical team called it benignly a “False Alarm” (document in German). Some of the report key passages are:

  • The dangerousness of Covid-19 was overestimated: probably at no point did the danger posed by the new virus go beyond the normal level.
  • The people who die from Corona are essentially those who would statistically die this year, because they have reached the end of their lives and their weakened bodies can no longer cope with any random everyday stress (including the approximately 150 viruses currently in circulation).
  • Worldwide, within a quarter of a year, there has been no more than 250,000 deaths from Covid-19, compared to 1.5 million deaths [25,100 in Germany] during the influenza wave 2017/18.
  • The danger is obviously no greater than that of many other viruses. There is no evidence that this was more than a false alarm.
  • A reproach could go along these lines: During the Corona crisis the State has proved itself as one of the biggest producers of Fake News.

They proposed an emergency session with the German Government to take immediate correcting actions, to revamp the economy, employment and re-establish social normalcy. From what it looks like, the German Government did not respond to this sensible proposal. 

Germany is symptomatic for most governments in the Global North as well as in the Global South. They follow strict orders, from which they are not allowed to deviate, and few countries did. One of them is Sweden. The Swedes didn’t close down the country and the economy, but were especially careful with the elderly and other vulnerable groups. They didn’t do worse than other European countries. To the contrary. The Swedes feel less depressed, less despair, thus, they are healthier and their economy has not been dismantled. 

Will Sweden be able to maintain their “exceptional” concept of dealing with Covid? – Or will orders from above insist on changing their approach? – Now, what would happen if a government wants to save its economy and people and dared to not obey these orders? – What’s the extent of the pressure or threats? Or what’s the “carrot” for obeying?

The plan as it unfolds, will continue to use the media for heavy propaganda, day-in-day out, Covid is number one. There is not one newscast that does not have Covid in the headline. And that always in a scary way – so-and-so many new infections since the day before- a new record for this month. Death rates are propagated. They never talk about how many people had recovered, let alone how these statistics are made, and on what criteria a person is considered covid-infected or not. 

Every country, or even every “sub-country’ – every State in the US – has its methods, and no independent authority checks upon these methods and figures. Every so often, some medical doctors or virology scientists step out from their lockstep frame and divulge their doubts and experiences. Mostly those who don’t depend on holding on to their jobs, but to be fair, also some whose conscientiousness is inclined towards humanity rather than a corrupt system. 

After loosening of restrictions, government decisions are reversed (based on an increase of new cases which nobody checks!), reintroducing a mask obligation – threatening with stricter means, if people don’t adhere. In Spain, where after a long quarantine, restrictions were eased. People were rejoicing, dancing in the streets. Now the already foreseen punch-back comes. people have to wear masks again, in public places, in the street and even at the beach. Those who disobey risk a fine of 100 euros. A mental setback. Back into despair. 

There will be waves of loosening and tightening the covid restrictions, with always more severe controls and lesser freedoms – and all under heavy fear propaganda – it’s for the good health of civilization. Imagine, a pandemic of which more than 97% of the infected recover and were the death to infection rate is on average about 0.7%, very similar to the common flu!

The Vaccine

This will go on until a vaccine is ready – and people will be so sick and tired of this “game” -that they will voluntarily submit to the vaccine, no matter how untested and dangerous these vaccines may be. No matter that these vaccines will most likely introduce a DNA-altering protein, and come possibly laced with some kind of nano-chips that can be remote controlled and remote-manipulated. That’s the main reason for 5G electromagnetic waves, the dangers of which may be much worse than of Covid. 

DNA-altering vaccines – that’s genetically modifying the human genome. It has never been tested on humans. It is what Monsanto does to plants and food crops, makes them Genetically Modified Organisms – GMOs. GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance, created and funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Glaxo-Smith-Klein – one of the foremost vaccine producing pharmaceuticals, supported by WHO, are planning to GMO – “Monsanto-nize” – our genome, for the sake of better controlling humanity – not for better health, to be sure. Can you imagine what Bill Gates’ Big Money is up to? – Will you allow being monsanto-nized

Remember Bill Gates TED Talk in Southern California in February 2010, where he said, “when we are doing a real good job (referring to vaccination), we may be able to reduce the world population by 10% to 15%”

Digitalize our Lives

From that follows full digitization of our lives – a cashless society, digital money only – controlled by the banks, your health records available to whomever authority likes to know – your bank accounts vulnerable for any outside interference – digital of course. Many people, especially young people, think digital money, “so cool” – just swiping a card and the purchase is made. They have no clue of the ulterior implications of digital-only money. No cash. Your sovereign control of your money, your income, your savings – is gone.

Most people hope with the vaccine “normalcy” as they know it, or knew it, will return. It will not return. Only if people step out of the realm of fear, turn off their radios, TVs and mainstream media fear propaganda – there is a chance that people will regain control of their lives and be able to rebuild our universe as a sovereign effort of humanity – and abolish the psychotic dream of a Dark Deep State elite that is nominating itself as the rulers of a New World Order.

This is the actual plan. We can stop it. Don’t fall for the lies, don’t fall for the propaganda – especially don’t fall for the FEAR that they want to indoctrinate you with. There is NO REASON FOR FEAR. RESIST!

Rebuilding Society

Our thoughts should now concentrate not on the disease, covid, corona – or whatever you want to call this Virus of Fear, but on rebuilding our society, our community, our economy, our social fabrics – our social systems of cohesion. We are healthy. Isolation makes us sick. Living behind a mask makes us sick. Fear makes us sick. It brings desolation – and desolation makes us sick. We, mankind, have to take care of our common future. Don’t let the invisible Deep Dark State pretending taking care of you, manipulate you into their New World Order.

The strength of our health – which is at least as strong as before the onset of covid – can power our ingenuity to build a new society, one that corrects the aberration that our old civilization has slithered into over the past decades, especially since the ascent of neoliberalism. We can build a civilization of more equilibrium, of more justice, do away with unfettered capitalism, with the boundless profit-thinking, with endless consumerism, wasting resources, many of which are never renewable and gone forever. 

The Foreign Debt Machine

To restart and rebuild Covid-destroyed economies, governments have to rescue productive sectors and subsidize citizens for survival. To do so, local money, debt, is mostly used, in all countries, south or north, where rescue government interventions occur.

In the rich and industrialized north it is normal that local debt is managed locally by a nation’s sovereign monetary and economic development policies, as well as by policies guiding social safety nets- unemployment, health, pension benefits -and more. There is hardly a country in the Global North asking for an IMF “rescue package”.

In the Global South, it’s also governments that are supposed to step in with local money to rescue citizens and the national economy. It’s a sovereign internal affair, it’s a local debt, like in the north. However, in the south for some “strange reasons” the IMF and the World Bank come in with foreign money to “rescue” the countries. In other words, these governments give up their sovereign rights to manage their local debt locally. Instead they apply willingly – perhaps under pressure, to the IMF / WB for foreign loans. 

They monetize local debt into foreign debt, thereby increasing their foreign debt and creating not only a foreign exchange and foreign debt service dependence, but also accepting a number of conditions they would not be subject to, if they managed their local debt internally. The same as the rich sovereign industrialized Global North does – except for those European countries which got themselves enslaved by the Eurozone (mostly Greece and other Southern European countries), having given away their financial and economic sovereignty to the European Central Bank (ECB) and their political sovereignty to the European Commission in Brussels.   

A few months ago, the IMF set up a special Covid rescue fund of about a trillion dollars – probably higher by now, and at least 60 countries from the Global South had already applied for such “rescue packages”. These rescue operations all come with the usual strings attached – massive privatization of public assets and services, as well as concessions for exploitation of natural resources, like hydrocarbons, minerals. Most importantly, the latest semi-clandestine corporate takeover and conversion from a public good into a privately owned commodity – is WATER. Water to be privatized by western corporations, water on which all life depends. Privatization of water is the final blow to a population, especially the poor segments of a country. 

Alternatives to Foreign Debt – Use of Local / National Debt instead of Foreign Debt

Most debt resulting from the corona crisis is local debt that is created locally (the FED calls it QE – Quantitative Easing, a complex term for a simple concept, “printing new money”), by sovereign nationally owned central banks and national public banks. They are in charge of bailing out local industries, the local work force – building or rebuilding social safety nets, public health plans and more. The autonomous national government sets the lending conditions, not the IMF or the WB, nor a Wall Street-connected private bank that works for profit for its shareholders – rather than for the government it is supposedly “rescuing”.

Foreign debt is most often linked to foreign trade. Some of it may be necessary for imports of crucial goods – food, medication, spare parts and more. However, before increasing foreign debt, a country may want to use to the extent possible her foreign currency reserves.

To better control the use of foreign currencies, a sovereign central bank may introduce a temporary dual monetary system – a local currency for the local economy, and a higher-valued international currency to be used for foreign trade (and to promote import substitution) – thus, controlling the use of foreign exchange – i.e. potentially foreign debt. A good example for applying this concept is China, using the dual system until 1984. 

A simple concept to rebuild and boost the local economy is local production for local consumption, through a local public banking system with local / national money, monitored by a national autonomous central bank that works for the national economy and the wellbeing of the people – to achieve self-sufficiency. The three key pillars for national autonomy are – food, health and education. – Foreign trade to be concluded with friendly nations that share the same ideology, ALBA-style.

All of this may not be easy, and may not happen overnight. However, the only way of rebuilding an autonomous national economy – is deglobalization and de-dollarization, moving out of the reach of the dollar dominion. There is life after Covid – and especially after the fall of the dollar hegemony.
