Just as the question asks why did Covid happen? Covid will now be cemented in time as pre-covid and post-covid. What I find interesting about it as soon as it hit the news, the news was next level ready t o keep people on the sofa waiting for the next news broadcast. In the United States, it shut down everything immediately. Some things lingered but the the brakes were put on daily understanding of life. People are freaked out yet easier to keep tabs on because they are home on the internet. We are tracked and profiled more now than ever. A simple virus can nearly collapse our economy and if our food distribution was impacted to no production would turn communities into war zones. Yet the food kept coming so that is a good thing, without water and food nothing makes sense in life. All life would seize to a hault. Did covid happen to open our minds and understand either one can plan for bad times? Did it happen to test the world population's ability to respond to the virus worldwide. Like a trial run humanity to gauge how to really remove the burdening over population. The fools of this world are bliss and the landlords of the earth are tired of greasing the machine. They don't want the machine anymore.
