Lockdown question.. reasoning
I have a question about the psychological reasoning behind these lockdowns (in regards to C19) around the world. You hear people say things like the govts around the world want some kind of ‘power’ over the masses and to simply lockdown societies (like what happened all across the world last year and still this year in some places). But what would the point be exactly for these govts to do this? Why? Arent they simply ruining their economies by shutting almost everything down (for months and months). Think of all of the billions and billions and billions not being spent, no taxes being paid, etc. So why would they want to lock everyone down? What is their sole purpose/what are they gaining? Just to have some type of ‘power’ or ‘control’ over the masses? This confuses me.
Anyway, i worry over here in Europe that everything will start to shut down again in Sept or Oct for MONTHS. Again. Is it cuz they are so concerned for the people? I dont buy this at all. I think there is something much deeper/hidden, but I dont really get what that is…
