In May 2010, the Rockefeller Foundation and Global Business Network published a 54-page document called “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development.” It contains four speculative accounts of what might happen in a particular scenario.
I have a copy of that document. Pages 18-25 is a scenario called “Operation Lock Step.” It is in the style of a historical account written around 2030 describing events from 2009 to 2028. I have no idea what the name “Lock Step” has to do with the scenario of a global pandemic.
The speculations have a surprising similarity to what did happen, but not everything matches. For example, eight million deaths, mostly young people, in seven months compared to the actual four million, more often older, in eighteen months. Other parts are very different.
The most disturbing prediction (if we can use that word) is how the pandemic resulted in many countries becoming much more controlling of their populations.
Here are the first three sentences of “Lock Step”:
“In 2012, the pandemic that the world had been anticipating for years finally hit. Unlike 2009’s H1N1, this new influenza strain—originating from wild geese—was extremely virulent and deadly. Even the most pandemic-prepared nations were quickly overwhelmed when the virus streaked around the world, infecting nearly 20 percent of the global population and killing 8 million in just seven months, the majority of them healthy young adults.”
An item circulating recently claims this document shows the COVID crisis was planned and that the document contains those plans. I suspect that if someone was planning to take over the world this way, that they would have tried harder to keep it secret. It is quite possible that they were truthful about their intentions. For example:
“This report is crucial reading for anyone interested in creatively considering the multiple, divergent ways in which our world could evolve.” (page 4)
“The scenarios that follow are not meant to be exhaustive—rather, they are designed to be both plausible and provocative, to engage your imagination while also raising new questions for you about what that future might look and feel like.” (page 17)
Whatever the intent of the document, the circulating item I mentioned contains 7725 words in 24 paragraphs, none of which came from the Rockefeller Foundation document.
Not one of the following 21 words appears anywhere in the entire 54-page document:
There is a saying, “Just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you.” The fact that someone made up lies about the scenario document doesn’t change the fact that there are a lot of power-hungry people out there.
