|"Disasters" - real or imagined - have been abused as manipulation and scare tactic. Or, for outright racketeering|
An impending disaster or state of emergency - real or imagined - has been used as a racket at least since the Apocalypse of St. John has driven people to pay for their "resurrection" (after death) by the Catholic Church.
Significance for Deep State politics
Political scientist Carl Schmitt (1888-1985) postulated that real power in a state exercises who decides when a state of emergency is declared and when it ends.  Declaration of a state of emergency often includes suspension or ending of civil rights and democracy and a shift to martial law. Property rights, however, are preserved according to Schmitt.

Preparation for Disasters is used to introduce new policies, often by powerful lobbies and foundations proposing a fusion of corporations and government which - according to Mussolini - is the very definition of fascism.
Continuity of Government
Planning for disasters of various kinds has driven the Continuity of Government efforts, a cabal using actual disasters as catalyzing events to further a non-democratic, business dominated control structure built on permanently rolled over emergency legislation. CoG planning was (partially) activated on 9-11.
The new "normal"?
The conditions to declare a state of emergency were gradually relaxed; i.e. a pandemic does not require a disease to be dangerous by the WHO any more. On Mai, 15 2019 the US declared a national "state of emergency" concerning "telecommunications", as part of its economic war against China.
Types of emergencies
An incomplete list of real or perceived threats leading to preparation for or reaction to regional, national, international or worldwide states of emergency may include the following examples. The scenarios include social control measures at the core: propaganda, psyops, censorship, police state and increasingly sophisticated soft power (aversive conditioning) techniques.
- In the 2008 financial disaster political leaders were threatened with a global state of emergency (i.e. riots, meltdown of the economy) - to introduce "bailouts" and "Quantitative Easing" (for those who caused or at least new in advance about the impending crash)
- Due to its moral implications and the "air of urgency" preparations and reaction to disasters are prone to becoming part of an ideology where dissent is colored as "evil", "insane" or a similar "enemy image".
|"War on Drugs"||A social control strategy that provides a lot of off-the-books funding for the US Deep state in particular. As a strategy of tension, it has served to scapegoat minorities and is used as a pretext for social militarization and the removal of civil liberties.|
|9-11||A complex and spectacular set of events in New York and Washington. The US government was quick to blame Al Qaeda, though no evidence of guilt was presented and there is much suspicion about what Al Qaeda really is. In the USA 9-11 assisted the Patriot Act's roll back of civil liberties, the stepping up of domestic surveillance and the financial advancement of the military industrial complex. Abroad 9-11 helped launched wars on Iraq and Afghanistan that had been planned long before.|

|"Overpopulation"||“Overpopulation and the overreliance on irrigation was a major factor in making the Maya vulnerable to failure:
the trigger event of their collapse appears to have been a long drought beginning about 840 A.D. (communication of V. Scarborough, an archaelogist (sic!) from the University of Cincinnati ). Among many factors, such as war and plagues, that contributed to many of the collapses of ancient societies, there seem to be two main causes: too many people and too little fresh water. As a consequence, the civilization became vulnerable to environmental stress, for instance, a prolonged drought or a change in climate .
The societies themselves appear to have contributed to their own demise by encouraging growth of their population to levels that carried the seeds of their own decline through overexploitation of the land (communication of C. Scarre, an archaelogist (sic!) from the Cambridge University in England ). Similarly, the Akkadian empire in Mesopotamia, the Old Kingdom of Egypt, the Indus Valley civilization in India,and early societies in Palestine, Greece, and Crete all collapsed in a catastrophic drought and cooling of the atmosphere between 2300 and 2200 B.C.”
