I’d like to share a little online exchange with you via a YouTube comments section. From Anna Brees’ project, giving voice to those ordinary people who dissent from the lockdowns. Out in the mainstream media, the word is, apparently, that we who dissent are ‘Sociopaths’, ‘Psychopaths’ and worse. From an anti-lockdown perspective this is pure projection. We who dissent see the damage that is being done, we feel it in our very bones, at our core we know there is a great evil being done for no great reason.
No-one with any sense disputes that SARS/COV-2 was a nasty bug that swept through care homes and took a great tithe in those places. I say was, because the worst passed in March and April, effectively bottoming out in late May. The data tells us this. The NHS and other health services were ‘saved’. What for I cannot say, as the anecdotal stories coming out indicate that the overreaction to this bug is having a much greater effect than the virus itself. Our very humanity is under assault from politicians and media who will not see the great harms lockdowns do.
I would like my last remaining reader to lend an ear to this lady, who tells the tale of her recently deceased father, and see if it does not move you.
To which I commented| “Glad your Dad had you to hold him at the end. Too many have not. They died estranged and alone. Horrifying. As mandated by government. As you say this is not just a crime against humanity, but just for being human. That can’t be right.”
To which she replied: “It is so bad isn’t it? I am glad we got to Dad too, but as you say, many other families did not manage it”
My last response was: “And the pro lockdowners have the nerve to slander those who disagree by calling us socio and psychopaths. Perhaps they should take a good long look in the mirror sometimes. Not holding my breath.”
I think we’ve all seen the video of the funeral director stopping a service because people in a time of deep lament had the nerve to try and comfort each other. He was only ‘following the rules’. As were others who prevented those requiring treatment for other diseases just in case hospitals were ‘overwhelmed’. They too were ‘following the rules’. There are no figures for those very preventable deaths, but we know anecdotally that they have happened. No figures for the lives ruined by Government edict, the suicides, the societal damage to name but two. Yet these effects are all too real.
Does my sympathy for those so afflicted make me a sociopath. or worse, a psychopath? Does my anger at the overt injustice of these lockdowns make me so? I say not. And there are a growing number who see the massive collateral damage to lives and livelihoods these lockdowns create and want to say; “Enough now. Enough.”
For the sake of a little humanity.
Update: It seems that the WHO agrees. Are they ‘Sociopaths’? Asking for some friends.
