Its secret, organised intention, designed to bring about a specific outcome.

Yes, certain powerful groups in China had in interest in keeping the market in wild animals open because they like eating them, and they no doubt prevented changes to the legislation that kickstarted the trade in the first place, and once the market was there, it grew and the inexorable momentum of money became a factor. Thats the conspiracy - or 'lobbying' as we call it in the West.

But it wasn't done deliberately to create new diseases. That was the unintended consequence.

We see the same thing with multiple crises and black swan scenarios. Short term interests and profit are the boring and prosaic explanations for the vast majority of them.
yeah for clarity i wasn’t making some yellow peril jab at the food market in wuhan, and definitely not suggesting this has been “intentionally engineered” more a vague point about agribusiness setting the conditions for these kind of viruses to spread on this scale. a lot of recent large flu outbreaks seem like theyve originated on domestic farms, or as a result of rapid expansion of farm land into “the wild”, with densely packed groups of animals suddenly coming into close contact with relatively isolated diseases. i might have become a wikipedia expert since tuesday but plenty of people have been making this point clearly for a long time, and it doesn’t seem like a stretch to imagine that some industry figures with their funded research committees and attendent lobbying groups might not have much of an interest in heeding that point.

Sen. Kelly Loeffler Dumped Millions in Stock After Coronavirus Briefing

The Senate’s newest member sold off seven figures worth of stock holdings in the days and weeks after a private, all-senators meeting on the novel coronavirus that subsequently hammered U.S. equities.

Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) reported the first sale of stock jointly owned by her and her husband on Jan. 24, the very day that her committee, the Senate Health Committee, hosted a private, all-senators briefing from administration officials, including the CDC director and Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institutes of Health of the United States, on the coronavirus.

“Appreciate today’s briefing from the President’s top health officials on the novel coronavirus outbreak,” she tweeted about the briefing at the time.

That first transaction was a sale of stock in the company Resideo Technologies worth between $50,001 and $100,000. The company’s stock price has fallen by more than half since then, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average overall has shed approximately 10,000 points, dropping about a third of its value.

It was the first of 29 stock transactions that Loeffler and her husband made through mid-February, all but two of which were sales. One of Loeffler’s two purchases was stock worth between $100,000 and $250,000 in Citrix, a technology company that offers teleworking software and which has seen a small bump in its stock price since Loeffler bought in as a result of coronavirus-induced market turmoil.

I guess insider trading has gone on since the first stock exchange existed. Is it a 'conspiracy', as such? It leans in that direction, certainly, but conspiracy theorists always go further and insist that the people benefiting from a stock market crash must have orchestrated the event that caused the crash.

Well, Burr's accused of misleading the public and markets whilst privately selling millions after sitting in on classified briefings during a pandemic. That's a step up from your usual insider trading, imo.

Yeah but when it's rich white man it's very rarely conspiracy unless there are mobsters involved. Money men never get done for conspiracy, they just jump out of windows

It's not a lol. Only the most wide eyed of naifs could fail to share Karen's concerns. Simon Jenkins wrote an article for the Guardian about it yesterday for heavens sake. The bit about about an alkaline body repelling the virus you might want to take with a pinch of salt however
