I am beginning to doubt that depopulation is the primary goal now. Population is something they can and will curb, for sure, but I think the main agenda right now is about the control grid. The current narrative is not strong enough to drive the implementation of their vaccine passport system globally. For that, something that really justifies it must occur. Coronavirus, in my opinion, was a way to bring the idea of biological terrorism to the forefront of people's minds as well as most importantly establish the bureaucratic slave system.
I think all they need is sufficient justification to fully implement it now. I think that it would be very useful to release something more deadly, as 99% of people (many of us, in fact), would actually get a vaccine upon seeing people die of hemorrhagic viruses like ebola. Opposition to a vaccine passport after such a scenario would be very low, due to the ongoing nature of biological threats.
I still think back to what Gates said early on about "pandemic 2." He revealed it in that interview.
I'm not so sure depopulation agenda is the correct term really. Based on all things I've been able to consume and consider, I'd say it's more like they're working on a de-birth agenda. An outright die off of billions of people would produce a huge backlash. But blaming a virus and then the treatment for the virus on declining birth rates due to infertility and other issues...well that's just a "risk we had to take" and people will eventually get over it. Over time, they still achieve a lower population.
I think them finding out who's for and against the "vax," and who's generally going along with the agenda is helpful for them as well. Something to keep in mind.
