    How painfully moronic, like most CTs.

    What would be the point of a government conspiracy to wipe out government revenue?

    Conspiracy theories that ignore the issue of motive are pretty boring. “These guys do evil things because they’re evil” is hack writing. Believable villains have believable motivations, not self-harmful ones.

    Unfortunately, “COVID is a back door to super fascism” is a result of the same old mindset that virtually every conspiracy theory stems from. Saw it put pretty well recently: “Malevolent gods are better than no gods.” People buy into this stuff because it’s actually more comforting to believe in a grand, globe-spanning evil conspiracy of supervillains because at least then all the bad stuff is part of a plan. And “seeing behind the curtain” to uncover their evil plot is more comforting, because the known is always easier to deal with than the unknown.

    The sad reality is that bad stuff happens for just no goddamned reason at all, the universe is a chaotic and entirely uncaring place. COVID isn’t a secret bio weapon developed by evil geniuses, it’s just another random ass variation on a microbe that happened to suppress an immune receptor in the human body letting the virus hide and multiply for a longer period before detection and immune response. And the reason it’s so persistent in our society isn’t because our governments are evil, it’s actually much, much scarier than that.

    Our governments are stupid. Because they’re made of people, and people are stupid.

    So, some of us invent the conspiracies to comfort ourselves. It’s all part of a plan, it’s all part of a plan, it’s all part of a plan...
    So nobody forgets, you're welcome!
