the worst dictatorships have come from best intentions, amirite?

there are two main tactics (perhaps you can think of more) dictators use to gain more power in the start, A) anger B) fear

every single dictator I have learned about, have used global or local emergencies to get power, Hitler for example, used what the allies where doing to them from WWI, and used it to get people angry. that was in Germany's eyes a REAL threat, Hitler used media and rallies to push this propaganda, that germany needed to stand and fight back against the allies. there is the ANGER side to how he united Germans to join his cause

then Hitler and his media created a fake emergency, he bombed buildings, to create fear and panic, Hitler and media blamed the jews, making everyone live in absolute panic, Here is the fear side to how Hitler united Germans to his cause.
once he had everyone ins enough anger, and fear, he told them they should give up their rights temporarily to defeat these threats, look at how that ended up for germans,

the German people thought Hitler was going to save them, that he had good intentions, turns out he was pretty crappy.

Napoleon was a similar story. fake emergency, maybe even a real one, he used it to inside fear into the public, look how that ended up for France.

now fast forward to today's "emergency" the covid 19, we are seeing politicians around the world and media around the world creating fear chaos and panic over this, and are either asking people to give them more power and to give up freedom, or are just taking the rights away.
they are also inciting anger in people, pay attention they are ridiculing those who walk outside and are using anger and fear to make the sheep be angry at those who exercise their liberties.

WHAT USE IS HISTORY if we refuse to learn from it? are people really so thick headed that they think history will repeat istelf in the exact same way?

once you give up a freedom, YOU WILL NOT GET IT BACK, not until someones had enough and fights back

Agree, but dictators do not act out of good intentions - they act out of desire for power (control) and wealth.

Germany was an economic mess (like we already are from the virus), hitler promised a strong economy, people who fail to see this will have blood on their hands when we see similar happen again

Germany had been an economic mess for a long time. This sudden downturn is in part due to media hysteria and politicians playing on that fear. Over 12K Americans died from the swine flu just a few years ago, but there wasn't anything like the mass hoarding, panic, hysteria right now. Schools weren't shut, people went to work, no one was told to stay home. It crazy now.

exactly, and politicians are setting Canada up to be an economic mess, one never seen before. the media is blaming the virus, Hitler blamed Jews,

the fear the media is pushing is to create chaos, if people riot it will give the state all the reasons they feel they need to enact a police state

You are right - deep state world take over. Sounds like I'm wearing a tinfoil hat, but I believe that is exactly what will happen in the future.
