Fair enough. Though I didn’t actually apologise. But I don’t wanna get into all that tit-for-tat stuff. So take it as an apology if you like.
Ironically, however, I am going to apologise in advance for the length of this reply! lol
Regarding the ‘prediction’. It was a simple matter of reasoning. Around 2004/05, a lot of information came my way from different angles which started to wake me up. Then someone handed me a copy of DI’s Robot’s Rebellion. That was a real eye opener. It made me realise that there was a whole world of possibility. This obviously led to doing more research. I became aware of the NWO, or the plan to form a world government, a global tyranny (which isn’t a new idea - I mean, HG Wells spent most of his adult life arguing for the formation of a World State, as per that Orwell essay).
I got to thinking, ‘How could they achieve that? What would be the strategy?’ It seemed logical that they would need to break down existing systems, existing economies, and create a need for a new system. What would be the best way of doing that? I was dimly aware that the emerging digital revolution was going to play a role in the NWO. So I figured a huge global war (in the traditional sense) might not be the best strategy since it could be very damaging to the infrastructure they had invested in. Like that old business maxim, ‘always protect your investment’. And it seemed to me that the NWO was nothing more than a new business plan for humanity.
Around the same time I saw an episode of Horizon which ran a very chilling simulation of a flu pandemic. It touched upon all the talking points that are relevant today. It went further and talked about the breakdown of societies, how there wouldn’t be people to drive the lorries to fill the shops so there would be shortages etc. Bingo. That was the light bulb moment. That was the strategy. It was the one thing that could affect every country around the world, while avoiding an all out war.
When I drew that conclusion, a big part of my intuition was telling me it was the correct projection. Then it was further cemented by additional research and the swine flu panic of 2009. In fact, it seemed the first decade of the new millennium was marked by ‘global problems requiring global solutions’, each one attacking specific levels. Global terrorism, global warming (there was a huge propaganda push around 2006 for this), global financial crisis, then capped off nicely with a global pandemic scare.
Back then I was so convinced that it was the key strategy, that I talked about it with people, even warned them to stock up on things because it would mean potential breakdown of society.
Naturally the idea has matured since then; indeed, it’s now become a reality, and living in the middle of it I can see there was a lot I didn’t anticipate.
The only documented evidence I have is a dystopian novel I was writing. It was set in the future when the World State was well-established and was ticking along nicely. Part of the backstory was that the global oligarchs had engineered a global flu pandemic to break down world economies, plunging them into the ‘Black Hole’, the worst depression in human history. The global elite positioned themselves as the saviours and became the mythical founding fathers of the global federation.
I had this ambition that it would serve as a warning. But I had this strange old thought in the back of my mind: ‘What if I’m helping to create this reality?’ So I stopped and started, eventually abandoning the project. Probably a bunch of superstitious nonsense. Probably should’ve finished it and got it published somehow. Oh well, the ship has sailed and I have no intention of finishing it now.
I still have the manuscript on file somewhere. You’re more than welcome to a copy.
The only other evidence are the friends and family who I spoke to at the time. But unfortunately I can’t wheel them out for testimony lol
I’m sure other people concluded similar things. But that was the basic thought process I went through.
There you have it. Kind of felt good writing that up. So thank you for asking the question.
