On a basic level, they want to lower the frequency of the collective by instilling fear. The fear virus in the environmental/collective consciousness is more contagious than any disease-virus. On a metaphysical level, fear weakens the aura/protective shield which negatively affects the immune system on a physical level, making one more susceptible to any disease/virus, even just the common flu/cold (hence more “cases” to manipulate the numbers as Jon Rappoport pointed out in his article “Coronavirus covert operation”.
Fear makes people act irrational, and are easier controlled, willingly giving up freedom, rights, etc. It activates the reptilian brain of pure physical survival instinct (relates to the dark side of the “prepper mind” as well which may attract that which one is “prepping” for if coming from a place of fear, i.e. self-fulfilling prophecy).
Easier to mind control people when they are in that state. People then also start to police each other and keep each other in check, even afraid of each other because of fear of getting infected. They become authoritarian followers to the extreme, follow all orders, laws, and rules without questioning driven by fear…most people anyway. They may also want to trigger a social/economic “meltdown” or “shortage” to keep “people in check” and then appear as the “saviors” to bring the “cure” (i.e. vaccine), create new systems, regulations, and laws they’ve been waiting to implement anyway but needed a “reason” to do so. In short, it’s the Hegelian dialect of Problem-Action-Solution.
P.S. Question everything, ESPECIALLY anything by the CDC, WHO and any mainstream media propaganda outlets.
And check yourself when you sense FEAR creeping in. Reject it from your consciousness.
