If the powers that be demanded I develop a plan to shut down the world for an extended period, or else, this is how I would do it:
1. I would ask for complete control of all television and radio stations globally.
2. I would create a story that was believable by the vast majority of the population.
3. I would create a story that most people would be afraid to question.
4. I would choose to write about something that was a direct threat to everybody, but visible to no one.
5. I would center the story around a highly-respected profession that was perceived by most as noble and off-limits to public scrutiny or ridicule.
6. I would choose the medical field and physicians as my profession and professionals.
7. I would write about something in medicine that has been previously publicized in the entertainment industry such as movies and television shows.
8. I would create a story about a viral outbreak that sweeps across the world, a world pandemic.
9. I would choose a virus that has been around for a long time; one that has very similar symptoms to the common cold.
10. I would choose a coronavirus because it makes up 20% of the common cold cases in the world. Also, many people have coronavirus antibodies or similar DNA fragments in their bodies from past cold infections that will show up during lab tests in a significant part of the test field.
11. I would run a simulated pandemic a few months prior to running the real operation. Like Event 201 in New York City in October 2019.
12. I would release stories about the increasing case numbers every day on all media platforms. The coverage would be nonstop.
13. I would tell people the only way to save themselves is to hide in their homes indefinitely.
14. I would have respected medical personnel on television, radio, and other mainstream media platforms telling the public to wear masks, wash hands obsessively, and keep getting tested for the virus in order to inflate the numbers associated with the imaginary illness.
15. I would add to the imaginary disease’s statistical reporting pool every real case of pneumonia, influenza, common cold, and respiratory disorder in existence to give credibility to the fake pandemic.
That’s how I would shut down the world. Of course, I would never agree to do this and harm innocent people under any circumstances whatsoever.
