No doubt many will have heard the term “Social Distancing” used with increasing frequency over the last few days in the same breath as Covid-19. There is an agenda behind this that has little to do with disease control.

But I’ve been sitting here alone thinking about this new buzz phrase: Social Distancing. I had never heard the term until the last few days as we’ve been instructed how to best keep ourselves from spreading, or being susceptible to, the Covid-19 virus–don’t get too close to people–don’t touch them–avoid crowds–and so on. It’s such a benign, sterile little phrase; social distancing. I guess that’s the point.https://www.patheos.com/blogs/shanephipps/2020/03/13/the-age-of-trump-has-prepared-us-well-for-social-distancing/
The following is one of thousands of “Social Distancing” propaganda articles that have saturated the mainstream news over the past week:
Social distancing is the only way to stop the coronavirus. We must start immediately.
We don’t yet know the full ramifications of the novel coronavirus. But three crucial facts have become clear in the first months of this extraordinary global event. And what they add up to is not an invocation to stay calm, as so many politicians around the globe are incessantly suggesting; it is, on the contrary, the case for changing our behavior in radical ways—right now.
A quick look on the internet using the search term “Social Distancing” currently yields a staggering number of results from all over the world, relating to the Covid-19 pandemic. Take for instance this “dry run” in the Philipines:
Where did this “Social Distancing” originate? If it sounds like a pre-existing social theory and agenda, that’s because it is.
Yes, it is associated with safe practices during viral outbreaks:
BUT there is something deeper and more permanent at work:
“Social distance” is one of the most successful concepts in international sociology. Extensively used today in studies of ethnic, class, gender, status, and many other kinds of relations, social distance is most often measured according to the Bogardus Social Distance Scale, or some modification of it. A search of Sociological Abstracts conducted in 1995 yielded more than 300 studies of “social distance” published since 1990 alone. Appearing regularly today are studies as diverse and interesting as “Relationships with Waitresses: Gendered Social Distance in Restaurant Hierarchies” (LaPointe 1992), and “Chinese Aloofness from Other Groups: Social Distance Data from a City in British Columbia” (Netting 1991).https://journals.openedition.org/cybergeo/227?lang=en
Within diverse societies, people from different groups experience connection and solidarity in some social situations and distance and alienation from members of different groups in other situations. The concept of social distance was developed to advance understanding of processes of acceptance and estrangement between groups of people in cities where people who belong to different groups come into regular contact with one another…Social distance refers to the extent to which people experience a sense of familiarity (nearness and intimacy) or unfamiliarity (farness and difference) between themselves and people belonging to different social, ethnic, occupational, and religious groups from their own. Social distance is not a static cognitive attribute of acceptance. People can shift and change their sense of affinity or dissonance with particular groups across different contexts. Accordingly, it is more accurate to think of social distancing as a dynamic social…https://link.springer.com/referenceworkentry/10.1007%2F978-1-4614-5583-7_559
In other words, Social Distancing is something that can be altered or manipulated. Getting the picture yet?
What’s it really about? Why is it being implemented?
The first aspect of Social Distancing is racial and cultural differences. This is of direct concern to the Globalist 2030 agenda in it’s quest to fulfill the Kalergi Plan of creating total racial and cultural integration.
There is a second aspect, just as important to the Globalists:
A consequence of the way social distancing allows MNCs to exploit global workers is the production of a contingent and transient workforce, vulnerable to exploitation by local, small-scale employers, just as they are to exploitation by large MNCs. The most vulnerable of these workers are immigrant day laborers and domestic workers. Numbering one hundred million, this migrant army of workers roams the globe without connection to formal work, in search of jobs for survival…In this system built on social distancing, workers are so contingent and isolated that they find it difficult to stand in solidarity. On the factory floor, efforts at organizing can be met by a threat of plant closing, relocating workers to another maquiladora factory, or by firing the informal worker and bringing in a more compliant workforce. (Bronfenbrenner 2000). In the Mexican maquiladoras, the labor turnover rate per month ranges between 15 percent and 25 percent per plant, and the number of workers switching jobs each year has grown to 3.5 million (Cypher 2003; Najera 2008). Beyond the factory floor, on the streets where immigrant day laborers seek work and in the private homes where immigrant domestic workers toil, the isolation and social distance of workers from each other similarly makes organizing difficult and exacerbates workers’ susceptibility to abuse (Stiehl and England 1997; Domestic Workers United 2009; Robinson, Dryden, and Gomez-Duplantis 2010). A challenge in the rise of the informal economy and its social distancing effects lies in the erosion of workers’ rights and the difficulty of sustaining effective organizing efforts.Global Restructuring, Social Distancing, and a Community-Based Worker’s Center Response https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0486613411407718
Applied generally, this means that Social Distancing prevents gatherings, meeting, marches, and protests. It literally prevents people from close interaction except via electronic media (Skype, cellphones, Social Media…) where their communications are easily monitored, recorded and tracked.
This new and increasingly enforced Social Distancing, being brought in via the trojan horse of the Coronavirus Pandemic, may well be the next push towards implementation of the new World Order. Anyone who thinks “it can’t be done” by the year 2030, think again. It is happening now, and the speed with which it is happening is breathtaking.
Question is, what step will be implemented next?
