Why?

Writes Ron Johnson:

I’ve been thinking about the possible reasons for the massive overreaction to CV-19.  The virus is, by all official accounts, overwhelmingly mild and probably much less dangerous than the common seasonal flu, yet the leaders of several countries are willing to utterly destroy their countries’ economies  and plunge their citizens into life-and-death poverty.  Why?  Is it for power alone?  If power was their goal, then it makes little sense to turn one’s own country into an economic basket case.  Are these people stupid?  Hardly.

That leaves me to speculate on a possibility: that they know something they are not telling us.  After all, it would not be the first time that the government, corporations, and the media have teamed up to keep damning information buried.  SV40, anyone?
