The Case Against Lockdown

Recent lockdown measures and the hysteria lead by the biggest media organisations in the world are having a destructive effect on people’s lives -the scaremongering tactics of Governments around the world have caused panic amongst huge amounts of the population and this is disastrous for so many.

I went to the recent anti-lockdown/vaccine/mask protests in London this weekend to see what those protesting had to say. The BBC and other British media organisations, who are meant to cover all points of view and fulfill their role as journalists, have completely failed their license-fee-paying audience over the last year and one of the last things they would do is grant a voice to people who speak against the Government’s coronavirus policies. See their recent pieces on Van Morrison who released three new songs opposing lockdown. The BBC have unfortunately become a Government propaganda service. This is why it is important to provide an alternative viewpoint, to create a discussion – something that is hard to do in 2020 with our cancel-culture and a virtue-signalling population forcing their opinions on to others.

The Effects

Firstly I think it is important to discuss those affected by social distancing and lockdown rules put in place by the Government – many seem to ignore these effects and only point to mortality and death rate statistics, something that I will get on to later on in this piece. As a result of lockdown and restrictions working-class areas and families will suffer, the economic effects of lockdown have lead to a huge rise in unemployment and loss of work. However the ‘left’, who historically are in support of those less fortunate or aim to make society more equal have tended to side with the viewpoint that we should be hidden away and follow unjust Government policies that destroy people’s livelihoods.

Dr David Katz, an American physician of Yale university, states, “I am deeply concerned that the social, economic and public health consequences of this near-total meltdown of normal life — schools and businesses closed, gatherings banned — will be long-lasting and calamitous, possibly graver than the direct toll of the virus itself. The stock market will bounce back in time, but many businesses never will. The unemployment, impoverishment and despair likely to result will be public health scourges of the first order.”

The mental health of the population, something that the world seemingly had finally deemed important enough to discuss over the last decade or so, has been completely neglected through these policies as has the effects that will be had on families and domestic violence. The Samaritans have stated that the pandemic is “taking a huge toll on people’s mental wellbeing, we should be concerned”. They point to how their callers have been “worried about losing their job/and or business and their finances, with common themes around not being able to pay rent/mortgage, inability to support the family and fear of homelessness”. It was recently reported that male suicide rate have a two-decade high in England and Wales.

I spoke to Tania, a school teacher from London, at the protest this weekend. She suggested that one of the worst aspects of these new rules is “the mental damage to young children”. She pointed out that, “a lot of children in my school have missed out on playing, socialising and learning with other children. They are coming back to school now but there is a strong fear and separation among them.” She suggested that the population must create change and stand up against the lockdown measures.

The negative effects of Covid-19 are enormously outweighed by the effects on people’s lives. Dr Sucharit Bhakdi, of Gutenberg University Mainz, is one of the most cited medical writers in the world. He suggested that the government’s anti-COVID19 measures “are grotesque, absurd and very dangerous. The life expectancy of millions is being shortened. The horrifying impact on the world economy threatens the existence of countless people. The consequences on medical care are profound. Already services to patients in need are reduced, operations cancelled, practices empty, hospital personnel dwindling. All this will impact profoundly on our whole society. All these measures are leading to self-destruction and collective suicide based on nothing but a spook.”

Bhakdi suggests that the effect on medical care is one of the worst aspects of this pandemic hysteria. This is a theme that was frequently brought up by those protesting in London this weekend. Jenna and Hayley, both former student nurses, agreed that there have been deaths due to coronavirus but also insisted that ,”a lot of the deaths happening now are down to ignoring the elderly, causing more hysteria than needed which has lead to sick people not being able to access the services that they need.”

Mass Media Hysteria

It is also important to discuss how deadly and dangerous Covid-19 is and compare that to the mass media coverage of this pandemic by the biggest organisations in the world.

Dr Wolfgang Wodarg, a German physician and politician, points to science, something that the Government and media are twisting their own way to control the population, to prove the hysteria caused by Covid-19 is completely unnecessary. Wodarg suggests, “Every new year, we have new types of viruses. If the same viruses just came again in the next year our immune system would recognize them. So, they would not be able to multiply – which is what they want.  We have new variants of these viruses every year. There are 100 different types of viruses that are changing constantly. Up to now, we didn’t really care. 7-15% of acute respiratory diseases are coronaviruses.” Wodarg suggests in the video attached below that Covid-19 is a natural thing and that there are new viruses every single year – however this one, for numerous political reasons, has caught the media’s attention. He believes that the Governments hand was forced by Scientists with their own agenda when they first discovered the coronavirus. He points out how ,”politicians are being courted by scientists…scientists who want to be important to get money for their institutions. Scientists who just swim along in the mainstream and want their part of it … what is missing right now is a rational way of looking at things.”

Dr Bhakdi, who has been previously mentioned, agrees with Wodarg that Covid-19 is nowhere near as deadly as most people, governments and media outlets have led the general population to believe. Bhakdi says, “We are afraid that 1 million infections with the new virus will lead to 30 deaths per day over the next 100 days. But we do not realise that 20, 30, 40 or 100 patients positive for normal coronaviruses are already dying every day.” He also points asks the question, “Does the virus generally cause more serious illness also in young people and kill people who have no concurring illness? This would make them different from other everyday corona viruses of the world. The answer is CLEARLY No.”

A deadly cocktail of social media, large media organisations and Governments led by scientists with the wrong intentions have led to this worldwide fear.

The Government vs Nature

The Swine Flu in 2009 was stopped without the world being brought to a halt. This is something that Dr Yoramm Lass, the former Director General of the Israeli health ministry, points out in a recent interview of his. He suggests that the Swine Flu, “was a virus that reached the world from Mexico and until today there is no vaccination against it. But what? At that time there was no Facebook or there maybe was but it was still in its infancy. The coronavirus, in contrast, is a virus with public relations.”

Dr Lass also points out that Governments do not stop viruses, and whoever thinks this is the case is wrong, they can only end naturally. Lass says, “the virus, which nobody can stop, spreads throughout the population and then the population, not those at risk, are exposed to the virus and simultaneously the body creates antibodies to shut down and prevent the disease. At the moment in Israel, the virus is being spread around by a great many people who don’t know that they have it and people are being exposed and becoming immune. The chain of infection is broken and in that way the virus comes to a halt.”

The idea that nature should prevail and the world should carry on as normal alongside nature is a viewpoint that many took at the protest this weekend. It is a viewpoint that seems to side with Dr Lass’ suggestion that no Government policies will stop a virus. Nature should just take it’s course. Hayley, a former student nurse from Stratford, told me, “let nature be nature. let people find an alternative to vaccinations. A more holistic approach is better to treat themselves. Medical professionals are in it for profit (or for fame and to be held in high-regard as Dr Wolfgang Wodarg suggests) they are not in it for the people”. Hayley also suggested that “our immune system has not been able to build up, now everyone is coming out we are getting ready for a second wave”. It would seem rational that the Government advise to it’s afraid population should be more along the lines of: Eat healthy, exercise, get enough sleep etc. rather than hide inside or behind your mask.

I will end this piece with a personal viewpoint. This lockdown and monstrous hysteria is abhorrent and appalling. To prevent children from properly learning in schools and therefore harming their future, robbing university students, pushing financial and mental health problems onto an entire population whilst encouraging mass inequality is absolutely criminal. Look at the stats in a different way – people die, it’s part of life: getting in a car should be seen as one of the most dangerous things in the world if you read the stats. On the side of a cigarette pack it tells you that smoking cigarettes will kill you, it is proven that it causes health problems down the line – yet many still smoke. The flu and the common-cold kill many every year. If all of these stats were reported on in the way that coronavirus has been reported no one would ever come outside again. Ordinary life and doing, what most see as, ordinary things during a day is a risk, but to not risk anything would stop what life should be and the essence of living entirely.

I have my own opinion on Covid-19 and this pandemic and you should too – do your own research and don’t read and listen only to biased news organisations – expand your viewpoint and read opposing views without trying to cancel others. It is healthy to have different views and to debate a topic with someone else. That way you will learn something new and maybe understand the world from another person’s perspective.
