It's conspiracies all the way down
When I tell people that emergent systems phenomena (like collective hysteria) is the ONLY plausible explanation for the massive coordination of the Covid authoritarianism worldwide, people reply, “What about all the groups that interacted and coordinated with one another to push authoritarian interventions?!”
OF COURSE there are LOADS of such groups coordinating with other groups. When fireflies become synchronized, it ALSO requires individuals to coordinate their behavior with other individuals.
Key point is: There is in neither case a master planner coordinating it all.
