Pandemic, Lockdown, Economic Disaster: Are We at War?

Based on a Zoom presentation to the Coalition of Progressive Organizations and Universities Seoul, South Korea

By Peter Koenig Global Research, January 26, 2021

Are we at War? This has become a legitimate question over the last 12 months in the western world.

And we are not talking of war by the west against Russia or China, or the east in general. It’s a war of the people against ever-more tyrannical governments around the world, that under the guise of health security against an invisible enemy, called Covid-19 – are repressing people of the entire planet.

When I mention the West, that includes every country that follows the neoliberal economic concept of the west, still led to this date by the United States of America and her subservient allied governments in Europe and Latin America and even in Asia and Oceania. Yes, that also includes Japan, Australia, New Zealand – and to some extent also South Korea.

It’s a people’s war against a nefarious and rapidly all destructive ideology – an ideology that has nothing to do with humanity, that in fact has so far – and way before covid – economically destroyed and debt-enslaved many countries of the Global South by internationally imposed trade policies (by the western created World Trade Organization – WTO) and fiscal policies that serve the western dollar-based fiat economy – imposed out by the IMF and the World Bank.

Now, this Covid-19 “pandemic”, in fact a Plandemic – because it has been planned for decades – has destroyed much more. It destroyed the livelihoods of billions of people, has killed more people from famine, misery, extreme poverty despair and suicide. Yes, there is a rapidly rising curve of suicides, worldwide. And this is only the beginning. – Because there is a different much more gigantic agenda behind covid: It is a crime of epic proportions that is being implemented in front of our eyes.

March 11, 2020

On March 11, 2020, WHO declared covid-19 a pandemic. And that when worldwide cases were only 5095 and deaths 293 (WHO statistics). That is hardly a case for a pandemic. Its rather a Plandemic – a purposefully planned pandemic that subsequently is to justify global lockdowns and the devastating destruction of the world economy, with disastrous human and social consequences – uncountable bankruptcies, hundreds of millions of unemployed – no income, famine, despair – and hopelessness, a  vision of no future.

In fact, on or around March 16, 2020, less than a week after WHO’s infamous declaration of Covid-19 as a pandemic, the entire world, all 193 UN member countries plus 3 territories went into total lockdown. There is nowhere to escape.

A coincidence? – Hardly. It is absolutely impossible that a virus strikes the entire world at the same time.

This already indicates that the virus is man-made, most-likely in a US bio-war lab. Other possibilities of the virus’s origins mentioned are the UK and France. There are patents registered for this and other viruses preceding SARS-CoV-2, alias Covid-19.

This is a manufactured crisis that a world authority on health – like the World Health Organization (WHO) has been ordered to help implement, by declaring Covid-19, or SARS-CoV-2, as a pandemic, upon which all country governments have the right to take precautionary measures. The strange thing is that literally every government in the world, except for Sweden and Belarus, and perhaps one or two others have followed strictly the “official narrative”.

Why is that so? – Were they under pressure? – What kind of pressure?

Who are the masters behind WHO, behind the Plandemic?

Are they a few super-rich multi-billionaires – no names shall be mentioned – who have spun a network of collaborators throughout the world’s nations’ governments to make them obedient servants, and if they are not obedient, these governments, there are means to make them obedient?


China is also an exception, a different type of exception. China was struck first – not that the virus originated in China – no, in the most likelihood not – but the west may have been interested in observing with what efficiency China will master this maliciously manufactured crisis.

Well, the west had plenty of opportunities to learn from China on how to master this virus with a minimum of casualties and a minimum of economic losses.

But the west didn’t learn anything; or did not want to learn how to deal with this false epidemic efficiently and effectively? – Possibly, because there was and still is a different agenda behind this virus? – Instead of approaching the “crisis” with China-style efficiency, the west predominantly Europe and the US, create wanton confusion, chaos, issue non-sensical rules that change almost by the day – lockdowns, half-lockdowns, curfews – and all the time, or most of the times mask-wearing, always socials distancing, different rules for people’s assemblies – and lots of exceptions.

Then there are allegedly ever-so-often new strains discovered, like in the UK, some say they are highly infectious and deadlier than the original version of covid-19 – and the origin is South Africa – or maybe not. In any case, this new-type corona virus gives good reason for countries to continue locking down and closing borders, to keep their people ever more on a tight rope, ever less freedom – and ever more frustration.

And this, when scientist know and some have revealed, that since the beginning of the covid-19 Plandemic, there have been at least between 10 and 15 mutations. The corona virus mutates as does the flu virus. But these mutations are all more or less equally infectious, or dangerous, the same as with the flu virus.

The Big Picture

Let’s backtrack a bit to understand what was in the making for more than a decade – possibly several decades. But it may be sufficient to go back to 2010 to get a view of the Big Picture – on the basis of which we will understand the diabolical plan that has thrown the world into a chaos, never seen in the current civilization, vastly worse than the 1928 / 29 – 1933 world crisis.

It is important to understand the background and the plan behind this invisible enemy. It breaks every human right, every civil right – and nobody dares to object – because of FEAR, FEAR and FEAR. Fear has become weaponized. Fear is an instrument of war.

FEAR is also the instrument to subdue the world to the begging of a small elite – let’s call them, this commanding elite, the Globalist Cabal, those who aim at creating a One World Order (OWO) – and eventually to control every inch of Mother Earth and of humankind, by total digitization of everything – including the human brain…

That’s why the question: Are we at war? We should be, because we cannot let this happen. We have to resist this monster enslavement of the human population for the benefit of a few inhuman elitists.

Here is a brief summary of key precursors to Covid-19. In 2010 the Rockefeller Foundation issued a Report, simply called the “2010 Rockefeller Report” – May 2010 (until recently this report was available on internet). This report outlines in remarkable details what is happening today and has been happening since the beginning of 2020. It includes several scenarios that are supposed to follow each other.

The first one is called the “Lockstep Scenario”. Exactly. That’s what is happening now. A hapless and clueless world population is thrown from one day to another into a pandemic from which there is no escaping – as all 193 UN members have subscribed to it, or were coerced or bribed into it.

And this shocked world population is behaving in lockstep as they are told to do – by their government masters – isolate, wear masks, separate, live in quarantine – a series of well-thought out anti-social conditions, meant to break society, families and friends apart, and to condition the brain that this will be the new normal. Remember, a society in fear can be easier manipulated.Corona Tyranny – and Death by Famine

These measures have nothing to do with protecting peoples’ health. Their purpose is entirely different, as we will see. In fact, science – real science – not bought science – has proven in multiple ways that these measures are more destructive, more harmful than the virus Covid-19 itself – which has a mortality rate similar to that of the annual influenza. See Anthony S. Fauci, Director the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID / NIH – USA), in “Covid-19 – Navigating the Uncharted”, New England Journal of Medicine – NEJM (28 February, 2020).

If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%)…

All of this is happening, I can only repeat – while the world economy is practically coming to a stand still. With uncountable losses – worst off are the people living in the Global South, where up to 70% of labor is informal – no contract, no social safety nets, no social health services – no shelter no food – no hope – and no education for children – no future.

This is the kind of misery this Globalist Cabal has planned and planted upon the world. And, mind you, we are only at the beginning. The Lockstep is just the first of four mind-dumbing scenarios to be implemented over the coming ten years. – If we, the People, humankind – do not stop it. NOW!

The 2010 Rockefeller Report is not all. There were numerous intermediary reports prepared by WHO’s Control Board.

But just a couple of months before the outbreak of the PLANDEMIC, on 18 October 2020, Event 201 took place in NYC. This event was sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (funded by the Rockefeller Foundation), by the World Economic Forum (WEF), and by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

What is the WEF? The WEF was created in 1971 by the German economics Professor Klaus Schwab, as a simple NGO in a suburb of Geneva, Switzerland, to develop rapidly into an international forum for the crème of the crop of Big Busines, Big Finance and Big Fame. Ever since then – with one exception – the WEF’s elite membership met usually in the last week of January in Davos Switzerland – to decide over the “fate of the globe – and over humanity”.

The 2021 WEF meeting, is however, planned for May 2021 in Singapore. – They claim Covid is the reason for the change of venue.

There is an intimidating arrogance with which the WEF make decisions behind closed doors. And the world population never knows what is planned for them – and as we – the people – have been programmed to obey authorities, we go along. Only few of us are questioning ever more grotesque events and occurrences. All of them infringing on our human and civil rights.

When the day comes that we discover that the salami is completely sliced off – I mean, sliced off of human and civil rights – that there is nothing left – it is too late. And that moment is now visible. In other words, it is High Noon to act.

Event 201

Back to Event 201. The key purpose of Event 201 was to computer simulate a pandemic patterned according to the 2002 / 2004 SARS outbreak. They called the new virus SARS-CoV-2. According to computer simulations this pandemic produced 65 million deaths in 18 months, created worldwide economic and social chaos, leaving behind uncountable bankruptcies, billions of people without work, and creating a deadly famine, a massive shortfall of goods and services, including food – and social misery beyond control.

On this website you may find several videos depicting Event 201, as well as some of the discussions that took place during the event.

The Event 201 Conference was attended by everybody who has a name in international public health – FDA, CDC, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID / NIH); in international finance, led by the IMF and the World Bank, key Wall Street bankers, as well as in Big Pharma, for example pharma-industry interest groups, and of course WHO, also UNICEF and other UN agencies – and more.

The original SARS (meaning – Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) broke out also in China, in 2002, in the Guangzhou, Province, from where it spread to 26 other countries and according to WHO (2004) produced worldwide 8,096 cases and 774 deaths, more than 90% of which in China. It is speculated that the first SARS outbreak was a trial for what was to follow 20 years later. There were also other, what we may call, dry-runs for covid-19, not least the “failed” H1N1 Swine Flu which failed to break out as was expected by the organizers.

Isn’t it amazing that just a few weeks after Event 201 the first SARS-CoV-2 case was discovered and reported from Wuhan, China, in late 2019, and in early January 2020? China, prepared and alarmed, recalling the 2002 SARS outbreak, reacted fast, and with systematically organized severe lockdowns mastered the disease within a few months.

After WHO’s declaration of Covid-19 as a pandemic – the entire world went into a lockdown, every country destroying its own socioeconomy, creating economic chaos, bankruptcies, unemployment, poverty and misery – deadly famine, especially in the Global South. How can that happen? What powers must be in play – what rewards or threats issued, so that every country of the planet basically self-destructs in lockstep?

The economic cost of this destruction – destruction of the real economy, can hardly be estimated. The devastation gets worse with every new lockdown, with every new measure of human segregation from society, from the workplace – with new and repeated closings of vital businesses – possible recovery of the economy is ever more difficult. Most small businesses will be gone forever. According to some estimates up to a third of the World’s GDP has already been wiped out.

And a good portion of these losses has been monetized and syphoned off and up into the pockets of a few billionaires, wo increased their riches in the 3 months from March to May 2020 by 20%. Imagine! Wile at the same time the International Labor Office estimates unemployment reaching close to 50% of the worlds ’entire labor force, most of it in the Global South.

When one sees the precursors to this covid-19 – which has in the meantime many strains, several mutations – one cannot but understand that there are “superior forces” behind it. There is an agenda way beyond Covid-19. This virus, invisible enemy, is just a convenient – and a truly clever – instrument to carry out worldwide restructuring of society, of our civilization of values that we have created over the years – good ones and bad ones.

Here is when the Great Reset sets in. That’s what the WEF calls it. The IMF, working in unison with the WEF, calls it the Great Restructuring.

“Covid-19 – The Great Reset” (July 2020), was written by Klaus Schwab, founder and CEO of the WEF, and his associate Thierry Malleret. Schwab calls the pandemic “a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.” – at the outset, it sounds like a good idea – bringing more equality, justice, a cleaner environment and finally peace to our world. Sounds like a dream.

But when you read the book, and read between the lines, it shows that the Reset means more power to the elite – a GLOBALIST and ever richer elite, that is steering the world’s nations – still to some extent sovereign nations – towards a global One World Order (OWO), to be managed through one gigantic global government.

Capitalism, now with a “black” economy – because of our primordial use of hydrocarbons (90+% of all energy), is to be turned into a Green capitalism. Meaning: The capitalist model will be maintained, even enhanced; hydrocarbons will be used to make so-called “green” energy – wind, solar, tidal power. These machineries and mechanisms are created with hydrocarbons.

As an example, we have today electric cars. Where do you think Tesla and consortia get their electric energy from? – It is at least 80% hydrocarbon or nuclear-generated electricity.

So, when you compare energy efficiency of an electric car and a conventional car, on average, the electric car is about 35% energy efficient, while the conventional car about 75%. This does not even account for the environmental and social damage that takes place to mine lithium, the base raw material for the batteries, as well as the rare earths metals used for the cars sophisticated electronics – and being mined largely in Central Africa under the most inhuman work conditions, including with massive child labor. This socio-environmental cost is simply shoved off as an economic “externality”.

That’s what Green Capitalism is all about. Pushing the so-called New Green Deal – basically painting capitalism green – is an important objective of the Great Reset – and, by the way, of the new Globalist Jo Biden US Administration.

An alternative would be for countries joining together, investing massively into research for new renewable energies, for example, more efficient solar energy – i.e., through photo synthesis.

Another objective of the Great Reset is outright digitization of everything. Algorithms and robots will control our lives. Money – cash – as we know it, will disappear – is already in the process of disappearing. By digitizing the money that we earn and hold in (bank) accounts, we are vulnerable. Depending on our “behavior” – whether we are obedient and submissive to the going dictatorial narrative – we may be allowed to use our earned monetary resources – or not.

It gets better. – In October 2020, the WEF issued a so-called White Paper entitled “Resetting the Future of Work Agenda – in a Post-Covid World”.

This 31-page document reads like a blueprint on how to “execute” – or implement – “The Great Reset”. The “White Paper” means it’s a draft, like a trial balloon to measure people’s reactions.

It reads indeed like an executioner’s tale. Many people may not read it – have no awareness of its existence. If they did, they would go up in arms and fight this latest totalitarian blueprint, offered to the world by the WEF.

Itpromises a horrifying future to some 80%-plus of the (surviving) population.

The Great Reset is to be executed according to the UN Agenda 21-30, meaning in ten years. The WEF outlines some 8 basic predictions, most of them linked to digitization and global control. But the last one is hilarious – “You own nothing and are happy.”

Now, contrary to what Klaus Schwab pretends – namely that the pandemic is a window of opportunity for the Great Reset – it is the other way around – the covid epidemic had to be invented, planned and implanted to allow The Great Reset to become a plan. We can only hope and act against it – hopefully not to come to fruition.

In addition to robotizing and electronically enslaving humanity, without most of humanity noticing, the Plandemic is also stealing our health, making it one of the most profitable commodities this civilization has ever known.

Just imagine – the idea is to vaccinate the world’s 7 billion-plus people within less than ten years. Only then can we move “freely” again. That’s the idea, already being floated around by many governments, especially in the west.

That’s the kind of policies the Global Cabal orders government leaders to implement, pretending that only when we are all vaccinated, freedom will return. Except that by then we are totally controlled and freedom is just a lame word from a defunct dictionary. In the meantime, Big Pharma makes trillions and trillions of dollars with Our Health – by stealing and commoditizing it.

Who would have thought, less than 12 months ago, that less than a year later we are literally living in a world tyranny? – And that we seem to be subdued and powerless against these also invisible Global Cabalists?

Will we let it happen?

Do we want to live in a New Technological World, a technocracy – to be terrorized, tyrannized and digitized?

Earlier I said – no names shall be mentioned. Yet, I would like to mention one name: Bill Gates.


Why is BILL GATES Buying ALL the Farmland?

Our war is about:

Are we letting ourselves be pulled into this subversive World of Tyranny or do we opt for an open and transparent World of Freedom?
