The Rockefeller Foundation published a report in 2010 which, according to some internet users, predicts “How? ‘Or’ What a pandemic can be used as an excuse to establish global authoritarian power “. For others, it’s even proof “that this exact coronavirus crisis was a pre-planned scenario”. This report does exist, confirmed the foundation to France Televisions journalist Mathilde Gracia. In 2010, she worked out with a partner four scenarios for the future of technology and international development.
“One of them predicts a pandemic and its consequences. A strain of influenza from wild goose spreads around the world. It kills eight million in seven months. 20% of the population is infected. Most deaths are young adults in good health. The foundation provided for the possibility of an authoritarian response from governments. The foundation was not the only one to have imagined or alerted to the risks of a pandemic. It published well in 2010 a study which foresees the emergence of a pandemic but it was a question of studying scenarios of reaction to a health crisis and not of a plan to establish a world dictatorship. The report even warned of the risks that such a crisis could pose to our democracies “, concludes Mathilde Gracia.
