    Do Governments use Corona to push their agenda?

    I am curious, when corona is over, how much the Governments have conveniently changed in their advantage (see Note)

    Did you see this happening already?
    Or do you expect certain things to happen?
    Or do you trust your Government to never do such a thing?

    Note: I mean, some people in power sometimes abuse their power, to make the money flow their way, instead of to the normal people. Make themselves richer, or their comrades.

    Everything that happens will be used to serve an agenda.
    This isn't being cynical. It would be irresponsible to not
    pursue what one believes to be right when opportunity
    presents itself. Of course, it can be really annoying too.

    that would imply that governments actually represent the peoples interests at all...and have some warm-heartedness towards people in general like some kindly nanny

    Some do it shamelessly, others a little, a few try to do the right thing without opportunism.

    In a democracy, their agenda is supposed to be the people's agenda.

    Of course. Pelosi's doing that already.

    Its predictable if not inevitable.

    Does Nancy Pelosi know about the coronavirus outbreak?

    Hungary's power grab is a classic, extreme instance of this.
