They probably did it because their financial system is on life support and they needed an excuse. The only way for them to continue to stay in power is with something that has even more control over us. Like Chinas social credit surveillance for example + a 100% digital currency. And also a much lower global population obviously.
Yes the purpose with Covid is probably to reshape the system. Their financial system is on life support. If the financial "elite" want to continue to rule over us they will need something with more control over each one of us. Like Chinas social credits + a 100% digital currency. And of course a much lower global population.
