Someone complaining about lockdowns:
We have now had nearly nine months of being treated like utter imbeciles. A once great country with a once free people has been reduced to the level of being governed by pathetic, childish slogans. And for some reason we have allowed ourselves to be infantilised.
Nine months? Is that all?
UK Smokers have been infantilised for over 13 years. We’ve also got our own special, pathetic, childish slogans printed on all tobacco products. Example (from the packet in front of me):
Smoking clogs your arteries.
The author continues:
But the infantilising of an entire population is by no means the worst thing they have done to us. Worse by far has been the dehumanising of millions of people, which has been done via a number of enormously destructive methods.
The dehumanising of UK smokers has also been going on for 13 years, if not longer. Smokers are excluded from bars and restaurants (and almost everywhere else as well). No Smoking actually means No Smokers – because cigarettes don’t light themselves.
My own response has been to dig my heels in, and carry on smoking. If they can make people stop smoking, they can make them do anything.
And I now feel nothing but contempt for the medics and Public Health zealots conducting this odious campaign. I don’t listen to anything they say, not just about tobacco, but everything else as well.
Their latest scam is of course Covid-19, of which the appearance of a new and more contagious variant is now being used to impose even tighter lockdowns and restrictions on the entire population of southeast England.
Is this surprising? Any bug that is more contagious than others is likely to rapidly predominate. It’s also likely that the less fatal a new variant is also likely to predominate, since fatal variants will kill themselves off more rapidly, as fewer pcarriers are able to transmit them to others. The result will be a highly contagious but largely harmless bug, much like the common cold. Surely the sooner this happens, the better. So my view is that life should continue as normal, and let the bug spread where it may. Indeed it seems to me that attempts to restrict normal social interactions might even have the opposite effect, making the bug more dangerous rather than less.
It’s not about health. Covid-19 is being used to remove freedom. And this is the real goal of the totalitarians in Public Health
