No boring talk about how it's not a conspiracy allowed in this thread. this thread is about letting your mind be carried by the winds of paranoia to land on the furthest shores of conspiracy. don't try and be funny. most of you aren't. just stop repressing the part of your mind that naturally veers off in this direction. give it free rein.

we're at the stage where even people like Tea and Craner have found themselves thinking, at odd moments, something dont quite smell right

OK, serious response: "It's a coup" is meaningless, but if you can get some idea of who he thinks is doing this, and for what purpose, then there might be something to discuss.

It's worth noting that NZ has been phenomenally successful in containing the virus. Under 2,000 cases, 25 deaths in total - yes they're a small country, but even so, it's worlds apart from what's happened in many other countries, including (obviously) ours. I'd be interested to learn whether they've had a particularly draconian lockdown or simply a joined-up public health approach run using public bodies and not five million competing organizations and private companies with everything outsourced to the Nth degree.

we can have other conversations on other threads. this is about sneaking suspicions, intimations, gut feelings, stoned fears in the dead of night.

digitisation of society wasn't happening fast enough
"The monetisation of every aspect of your life. Social credit system determining your universal basic income eligibility. Drones or other 'eyes' in every aspect and at every level of detail/zoom. There is such a thing as the human capital market . People provide services such as education, and then trade on predictions of whether you will have a desirable outcome such as getting a job. To support this new trading market it is necessary to collect as much data as possible "

the digitisation of reality is obviously a major vector, some would say the major one, dematerialisation, but it's also worth thinking about why. what interests and goals converge there.

How does the Cultural Marxism thing play into Coronavirus?

I'm not hugely familiar with the Cultural Marxism conspiracy except an ex-colleague who was quite into it told me that "they" were encouraging the destruction of family values in order to undermine Western birth rates (and for some reason were also importing Islam into Europe, knowing that muslims have a higher birth rate). I guess the object was the destruction of western civilisation, for some reason?

I applaud giving corona conspiracy its own thread - quarantine all of it in one place that uninterested parties can just ignore

but does your cousin (or you) really think that wasn't happening before corona, or that it requires corona in some way

or indeed, that any of that is a "conspiracy" or requires a conspiracy

I'd say it's happening pretty openly, driven mostly boring and mundane profit motive (see also: corona profiteering)

well as you rightly say, it's got it's own thread. you are being invited to switch off the dominant part of your brain, the one that is asking these questions of me, and drift with your pattern forming, meaning making, paranoid impulses. everyone knows how to do it, everyone does it.
