The Seven-Step Path from Pandemic to Totalitarianism

Written by Rosemary Frei; Originally appeared on off-Guardian.org

As if it was planned in advance, billions of people around the globe are being forced step by rapid step into a radically different way of life, one that involves far less personal, physical and financial freedom and agency.

Here is the template for rolling this out.


A new virus starts to spread around the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) declares a pandemic.

International agencies, public-health officials, politicians, media and other influential voices fan fear by focusing almost exclusively on the contagiousness of the virus and the rising numbers of cases, and by characterizing the virus as extremely dangerous.

Within a few days governments at national and local levels also declare states of emergency. At lightning speed they impose lock-down measures that confine most people to their homes – starting with closing schools – and shut down much of the global economy. World markets implode.

The stunned, fearful and credulous public – convinced over the previous few years that their bodies do not have the natural ability to react to pathogens by producing antibodies that confer long-lasting immunity – largely complies willingly.

The first weekly virtual class on local emergency and crisis responses to COVID19 is held for mayors and other city officials around the world. Coordinated by a handful of American organizations in the academic, medical, financial, political and transportation spheres, the classes feature guests ranging from Barack Obama to Bill Gates.

The Seven-Step Path from Pandemic to Totalitarianism


National, state/provincial and municipal leaders, as well as public-health officials, start daily press briefings. They use them to pump out frightening statistics and modelling asserting the virus has the potential to kill many millions.

Most of this information is hard to decipher and sheds little real light on the natural course of the virus’s spread through each geographic area.

Officials and media downplay or distort inconveniently low death tolls from the virus and instead focus on alarming statistics produced by compliant academics, social-media influencers and high-profile organizations.

The main message is that this is a war and many lives are at stake unless virtually everybody stays at home. Mainstream media amplify the trope that the world is at the mercy of the virus.

Simultaneously, central banks and governments hand out massive amounts of cash largely to benefit the big banks. And they bring in giant private-sector financial firms to manage the process despite these global companies’ very poor track record in the 2008-2009 crash. Governments also rapidly start to create trillions of pounds’ worth of programs that include compensating businesses and workers for their shutdown-related losses.

The Seven-Step Path from Pandemic to Totalitarianism


There is a concerted effort by all levels of government and public health to very rapidly ramp up testing for viral RNA, along with production of personal protective equipment.

They push aside the need for regulation, including quality standards and independent verification of tests’ rates of accuracy, by insisting that fast approval and roll-out are imperative for saving lives.

Models are released that predict snowballing of numbers of cases, hospitalizations and deaths even under best-case scenarios.

At about the same time, public-health officials significantly loosen the criteria for viral infections, outbreaks and deaths, particularly in the oldest members of society. That increases the numbers of cases and deaths ascribed to the new pathogen.

The media continue to clamour for more testing and for severe punishment of people who aren’t completely compliant with the lock-down measures.

As a result, there’s little backlash as police and military with sweeping new powers enforce these measures and give stiff penalties or even jail terms to those who disobey orders. States also monitor with impunity massive numbers of people’s movements via their cellphones.

Vast human resources are focused on tracking down people who have had contact with a virus-positive individual and confining them to their homes. Thus the portion of the public exposed to the virus remains relatively small.

It also contributes to social isolation. Among many effects, this enables those in control to even further erase individual and collective choices, voices and power.

The Seven-Step Path from Pandemic to Totalitarianism


When the numbers of cases and deaths start to plateau, local officials claim it’s too early to tell whether the virus has finished passing through their population and therefore, restrictive measures must continue.

An alternative narrative is that if such measures aren’t kept in place there will be a resurgence of cases and deaths. Yet another is that the continuing climb in elderly persons’ deaths means all bets are off for the time being.

They admit that initial models incorrectly predicted there would be a tsunami of cases, ICU admissions and deaths. However, they assert more time is needed before it can be determined whether it’s safe to loosen some of the restrictions and let children return to school or adults go back to work.

Officials do not try to calculate the overall skyrocketing cost to their populations and economies of the shut-downs and other measures against, nor do they discuss what cost level may be too high.

They and powerful media organizations also push for the massive virus-testing over-capacity to be used to surveil the general population for viral DNA in their bodies. At the same time, the roll-out begins of widespread blood testing for antibodies to the virus.

Meanwhile, new data are published showing the virus has a high capacity to mutate. Scientists and officials interpret this as meaning a larger medical arsenal will be needed to combat it.

About two or three weeks later, the dramatic increase in testing for viral DNA produces the desired goal of a significant upsurge in the number of people found positive for the virus.

Public-health officials add jet fuel to the surge by adding to their case and death tallies the large number of people who are only suspected – and not lab-test-confirmed – to have had an infection. Politicians and public-health officials tell the populace this means they cannot return to their jobs or other activities outside the home for the time being.

Governments work with public-health agencies, academics, industry, the WHO and other organizations to start to design and implement immunity-passport systems for using the results of the widespread antibody testing to determine who can be released from the lock-downs. This is one of many goals of the seven steps.

Meanwhile, government leaders continue to highlight the importance of vaccines for besting the virus.

The Seven-Step Path from Pandemic to Totalitarianism


Large-scale human testing of many different types of antivirals and vaccines begins, thanks to a concerted push from the WHO, Bill Gates and his collaborators, pharmaceutical and biotech companies, governments and universities.

Large swaths of the population don’t have the antibodies to the virus because they’ve been kept from being exposed to it; they eagerly accept these medications even though they’ve been rushed to market with inadequate safety testing. They believe these medical products offer the only hope for escaping the virus’s clutches.

The Seven-Step Path from Pandemic to Totalitarianism


Soon the new virus starts another cycle around the globe – just as influenza and other viruses have every year for millennia. Officials again fan the flames of fear by positing the potential for millions of deaths among people not yet protected from the virus.

They rapidly roll out virus and antibody testing again, while companies sell billions more doses of antivirals and booster vaccines.

Governments simultaneously cede control of all remaining public assets to global companies. This is because local and national governments’ tax bases were decimated during Step 1 and they’re virtually bankrupt from their unprecedented spending in the war against the virus in the other steps.

The overall result is complete medicalization of the response to the virus, which on a population level is no more harmful than influenza.

This is coupled with the creation of permanent totalitarianism controlled by global companies and a 24/7 invasive-surveillance police state supported by widespread blossoming of ‘smart’ technology.

The key players repeat the cycle of hysteria and massive administration of antivirals and booster shots every few months.

And they implement a variation of steps 1 to 7 when another new pathogen appears on the planet.

Sounds far-fetched? Unfortunately, it’s not.

With the arrival of COVID19 many countries quickly completed Steps 1, 2 and 3.

Step 4 is well under way in a large number of jurisdictions.

Step 5 is on track to start in early May.

Traiano Welcome

Very convincing. However, here’s where it all falls apart – The Pandora. Effect:

Step 8:

– Private groups, including non state actors, or semi-autonomous actors within states as well as states which are competing with the global agenda begin producing their own competing viral pathogens and introducing it to the global population, along with accompanying information warfare projectiles.
– The global corporations are unable to produce vaccines to keep up with these new, unregulated viral pathogens.
– Social disorder results once it is clear that even vaccines and authoritarian government control is not sufficient to maintain control for the small cabal at the peak of the pyramid.

Step 9:

– The complete collapse of the current global order results, including the machinery of the international pharmacological corporations and the international military-industrial-government complex.
– In the decades of sporadic internecine and international wars that break out the multi-polar new order emerges, characterised by a visceral hatred of centralised authority and global organisations.

The End.


Well yes, there are other outcomes, very well spoken, the “Pandora Effect”.
Those other outcomes are what all of us need to postulate and work on.
Starting with “NO FEAR” t shirts, or “FUCK SOCIAL DISTANCING” stickers.
Removal of the distancing markers, or the addition of so many it becomes hilarious.
Step 4 must be challenged. Shine like the Sun.

Traiano Welcome

It’s going to take more than inspirational T-shirts this time, sadly.

But I suppose very bit helps …


Yes, much more than t shirts.. Start with a cool headed look at the real numbers that count, the death numbers to the population.
200,000 deaths worldwide out of a population of 7.5 billion, a fraction of .01 %.
We need to educate our ‘in this together’ friends that dying of a tooth abscess or starvation, is just as real as dying of cov-2.
Every bit absolutely helps, we must speak up, we are not helpless.

Traiano Welcome

What kind of clown would vote this down?


Obviously the dementy tyrant wannabe kweer,likely another pro/nazi suicide flogged!


A zio shill

Zionism = EVIL

A Jew cunt as it is their agenda for a global police state on the Palestine suppression model. Not going to work as even the most brainwashed fuckwits will rebel against growing repressioncomment image and surveillance.

Jens Holm

They might be like You and dont want pigs in their kind of parlament too.


Wow. That was 5 minutes I’ll never get back. What a waste of time.


So how is Oregon doing, locked down with empty hospitals, or back to work.


Empty hospitals? What utter nonsense.


20 shekels for you.

Thats not Oregon. My ancisters went to Portland and there was trees and mountains all over.

Maybee was. They also took salmon from the the rivers to the freezers were full.

Traiano Welcome

You seem to have spent another 60 minutes in the comment section – that’s another wasted hour of your life too :-)

Jens Holm

The assumptions for permanent changes is not there apart from 2 eastern europeans countries. They will be punished econoomicly by EU.

That part is not there as well.

You seemes to forget, that the article also waste all readers time because reliable information about it is open on TV channels, radio, telefones and internet.


Your life is worthless anyway, Ruvelia, so dont worry about your lost 5 minutes.

Jens Holm

When You start with “!false”, then the rest always is true.

Its is false we make lasws as descriebed even some here and there try. They are VOTED OUT.

So many here dont understand the essense and the kind of quality in parlamentarisme is free oppinions by free debate are a RIGHT FOR ALMOST ANY OPPINION and then we mainly choose the good ones – and sometimes not.

Jens Holm

What a stupid way of conclude. Only 2 countries in Europe do that at all.

Most of us makes “sundown laws”, which say they expire themselves after fx 2 months. They aso are based on a parlamentary majority and not some random minority or Govement.

It seemes assumed we in palamentarisme has evil people. We do. But we try to keep them in a low level and not in 7 dirty steps of feet as assumed.

Our laws based on parlamentarisme dont allow such things at all. EU dont allow it. USA dont allow it all.

The Guardian as usual is Propagandalf on speed. The linoleum pic confirms it well. Only children and Stalin can make that kind of promitivisme, which relate to themselves and theirt world.

Zionism = EVIL

Stop posting nonsense you dumb Danish crackhead cunt!

Jens Holm

I hardly recognize Our part of the world even I Iive in it.

Arch Bungle

You’d hardly recognise your own face in the mirror even if you looked at it.

Zionism = EVIL

DDCC :) DUMB DANISH CRACKHEAD CUNT official name of this fuckwit.

Jens Holm

Arrh – a pity You lost Your job as ISIS toilet cleaner in their digged deeep deep state paid by USA theft of oil and a goldmine having a secret entrence from the grave of Golda Meir.

Jens Holm

Well, I would like to have some links, which confrim whats written in the article about risks for, we will look more like Your systems.

I can only find some few left and right wing fanatics for it as well parts of the muslims and russians, which descriebe a system, they never has and has not knowledge or tradtion for at all.

They and probatly You too not even has a language for, what it is. Often You are not even able to debate but use most of You devellopment by repetaing what Your Great and succesfull Leaders has told You are allowed to say.

A lot also is totally tabu and same thing. Its not even there. You can debate womens right or equal rights here. You cant ….

But motherfucker, cunt and rape each other is first class in socalled correct english, which are not able to cover some of the most vital parts for us.

Its like people in old days never has heard abouit cars and mobilephones are nopt for time but riadside bopmbs only.

So I tell You, that I read a lot but never will take some Zippely doooh Cardigan version as for more then it is after using Antivir and Malwarebyte on it.

And I not even need that. Normal knowledge in Europe about Europe dont say was the evil parts of the muslims and russians wish.

Arch Bungle

Come on! That’s not even english!

Zionism = EVIL

The stupid DDCC can’t even use Google Translate as the gibberish is off the planet :)


You wouldn’t understand it even if it was, Archie bunker

Arch Bungle

“D.D.C.C”… I like it!

Zionism = EVIL



Masks are a no,no,infact they only increase the risk of spreading such filth,exception being ones infected in isolation?
Nwo corporations are getting the hard treatment,expect to see the epidemic luciferian fail,
these include fake bonds vs real money laundering riggs in certain nwo/evil foundations!

There will be no forced vaccines,not unless the government is run by the vile/nwo/nazis!
Investigations of nationalised independant structure and constituate governance nationalised covoid response and factual evident professional medical advice is the order of the way,bypassing the nwo/who non mandates,where the nations governance takes control of each nations health + economy

There will be no shortages of basic living standards,food,medicines,elective surgerys,also deb waivers of non profits to more profoundly nationalised bank of todays,bypassing incumbent overseas investor manipulated,fake phoney and false bonds and the rest of the corruptions that plauged 21st century!

These are just some of the factual and evident reproaches in dealing towards the epidemic oh yeah
and this nwo neo-liberal politicall correctness will self destruct in it’s own wake,like Putin said poison!
Thanks for the unsolicited pointers,but as you see,sooner or later,they’re gonna cut them down!

Arch Bungle

Masks are largely placebos for the population. If people were serious they’d wear biohazard masks with anti viral filtering technology.


You’re so smart, you would know that a virus can’t get through even a cloth mask. Your knowledge of science is about zero. I strongly suggest you try trumps cure – drink clorox

Arch Bungle

You’ve provided no indication thus far that you’re capable of logical or factual thinking at all. Piss off joo troll!


Suck it up buttercup, I’m all over Jew haters like you. Come stop me if you think you’re such a tough guy

Arch Bungle

Sure. So what’s your actual argument?


That you have no medical knowledge at all. That your so-called technical knowledge from supporting the SAfrican apartheid regime is really just you sitting at home googling things and that no matter how hard you try you’ll never ever (1) be anything more than a pimply loser (2) defeat Israel and (3) do anything to or about Jews bc despite you’re pretending to be a tough guy, like most you’re just a pretender full of hot air.

This virus was a US bio-warfare attempt gone haywire and now imploding western governments are using it to turn totalitarian and repress civil right and basic freedoms.

Zionism = EVIL

It does not take a genius to know the Bilderberg Jew cunts insidious agenda to destroy global economy and then plunder whatever is left. The easiest way to take over the world is to destroy all economies and social cohesion.
That’s exactly what we are witnessing. Every politician is still
receiving their salary. Wall Street Jew bankers are still getting paid.
Police get their salaries and terrorizing ordinary citizens. Banks have gotten huge cash injections. But
honest hard working people are being told to stay home because old
people and those with underlying conditions are dying. Over 80% who died
are over 70 years of age according to WHO data . So much for even the thin veneer of “freedom”.

Arch Bungle

Ever read the Protocols of Zion?

Jens Holm

Maybe the Jews didnt want him:)

But..but … I was in Tora Bora:)

Zionism = EVIL

Yep, their new version is posted on Rense and fits in with the Corona virus bullshit.

Arch Bungle

It’s a masterpiece of subversion. Conversely it’s a masterpiece of prevention of subversion …

Zionism = EVIL

Indeed, the Zionist cunt Theodore Hertzl also openly said the Jews must subvert western nations and control their financial, media and government institutions, the parasites have accomplished that with dumbass Americunts, Limey gits and most of EU lapdogs. Only China and the Muslim world is an impediment.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
