Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development
MAY 2010, Page 18, LOCK STEP
A world of tighter top-down government control and more
authoritarian leadership, with limited innovation and growing
citizen push back.
Create a very contagious but super low mortality rate virus to fit the needed plan.
Create a weaponized version of the virus with a much higher mortality rate as a backup plan. Ready to be released in Phase 3, but only if needed.
Downplay the human-to-human transmission for as long as possible to allow the research strain to spread on a global scale before any country can lock down.
Once a country has seen infection in place, lock down incoming/outgoing travel.
Once enough people in a country/ region are infected, enact forced lockdowns.
Quarantines/isolation for that area and expand the lock down regions slowly over time.
Over hype the mortality rate by tying the Research Strain to deaths that have little to nothing to do with the actual virus to keep the fear and compliance at a maximum.
If anyone dies for any reason and is found to have the virus, consider it a virus death.
If anyone is thought to have symptoms of the virus, assume they have
the virus, and consider it a virus death.
Release the Research Strain and then blame its release on a natural scapegoat as the wanted primary script.
Keep the public quarantines for as long as possible to destroy the region’s economy.
Create civil unrest, break down the supply chain, and cause the start of mass food shortages.
Downplay and attack any potential treatments and continue to echo that the only cure that is viable to fight this virus is the vaccine.
If the majority of people go against the agenda, then release the weaponized SARS/HIV/MERS Tribit Strain as a Phase 3 operation. A virus with a 30+% mortality rate as a final scare to punish the minority to quickly become the majority and give a final “We told you so” to those that didn’t listen.
Enforce the Phase 2 quarantines at a much more extreme level increasing the
penalty for defiance. Replace fines with jail time. Deem all travel as non-essential.
Increase checkpoints, including military assistance. Increase tracking/tracing after population via mandatory app. Take over control of food, gas, and create large scale food shortages so that people can only get access to essential products or services if they are first given permission.
