This is what Jacques Attali wrote in 1981, who was then an advisor to François Mitterrand:
“The future will be about finding a way to reduce the population. We start with the old, because as soon as they exceed 60-65 years, people live longer than they produce and that costs society dearly. (Did Gov Cuomo of New York follow that protocol when he put sick people into nursing homes)
Then the weak, then the useless that do not help society because there will always be more of them, and above all, ultimately, the stupid. Euthanasia targeting these groups; Euthanasia will have to be an essential tool in our future societies, in all cases.
Of course we will not be able to execute people or build camps. We get rid of them by making them believe that it is for their own good. (This is too eerie for me to describe 2020 and how easy it was to convince almost the entire globe that it is for t heir own good)
Overpopulation, and mostly useless, is something that is too costly economically. Socially, too, it is much better when the human machine comes to an abrupt standstill than when it gradually deteriorates. Neither will we be able to test millions upon millions of people for their intelligence, you bet that! We will find or cause something a pandemic targeting certain people, a real economic crisis or not, a virus affecting the old or the fat, it doesn’t matter, the weak will succumb to it, the fearful and stupid will believe in it and seek treatment. We will have made sure that treatment is in place, treatment that will be the solution. The selection of idiots then takes care of itself: You go to the slaughter by yourself.” (did he travel to the future 2020 and see this?)

It is almost as if he sat on a mountaintop and looked directly into 2020. We have been warned by many that this was coming, and although it seems we did nothing, did we do nothing? Is this why we are here now? And, is our future bleaker than today? What are we going to do about it?
One of the most important things to remember is that we need to unite in a loving embrace of humanity and stand firm without allowing anyone to cause us fear.
