The Rockefeller Foundation proposes the use of “scenario planning” as a means to carry out “Global Governance” – scenarios "are a medium through which great change can be not just envisioned but also actualized ..."

"Even after the pandemic faded, this more authoritarian control and oversight of citizens and their activities stuck and even intensified ... Citizens willingly gave up some of their sovereignty — and their privacy — to more paternalistic states in exchange for greater safety and stability.
