2020: The Year We Let Ourselves Be Infantilised and Dehumanised

"We have now had nearly nine months of being treated like utter imbeciles"

“I am yet to hear a convincing argument as to how I and my family, not having any symptoms and thus not being infected by the virus, can possibly stop the spread of said virus that we don’t have”

I recently wrote a satirical speech by our Prime Minister, in which I imagined him coming up with all sorts of absurd rules for the Christmas season. It was really hard. Not because I was unable to come up with hundreds of such rules, were I minded to do so, but because the whole point of satire is to raise the absurdities up a step or two, in order to highlight the ridiculousness of what is happening. But how do you do this when the real-life absurdities have already been turned up to 11 on the amplifier? I kid you not when I tell you that my original list included a rule against playing certain board games over Christmas — which I rejected — only to see a few days later SAGE coming out and advising against the playing of board games.

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.

I am utterly baffled as to how people can have sat through some of these slogans being introduced without responding with howls of laughter.

“Stay Alert. Control the Virus. Save Lives.”

What on earth is this actually supposed to mean? Stay Alert? For what? Are we supposed to be on our guard for a virus that is approximately 120 nanometres, or around 1,000th the width of a human hair? Are we to carry an electron microscope around with us wherever we go, just in case? One of my favourite signs is an electronic one I sometimes see on my occasional drives into the office. On one day, it says, “Stay Alert. Control the Virus.” On another, it says, “Stay Alert. Watch out for Cyclists.” It should be noted that cyclists are considerably bigger than 120nm and even often wearing the kind of hi-vis jackets that coronaviruses refuse to wear.

Control the Virus? Say what? You mean they actually think we’re stupid enough to think they’re clever enough to devise schemes that can actually control those little invisible 120 nm virus particles that are in the air and on surfaces. Apparently so.

Save Lives? I am yet to hear a convincing argument as to how I and my family, not having any symptoms and thus not being infected by the virus, can possibly stop the spread of said virus that we don’t have by staying at home or wearing a piece of cloth over or respiratory passages, such that we save lives.

More recently, it has been decided that the slogans were maybe a bit too high-brow and needed to be simplified further, this time into monosyllables: “Hands. Face. Space.” Although I tend to avoid watching Comrade Johnson and Co as they spout this nonsense at their regular stand-ups, on the occasions when I have had that misfortune, it has felt eerily like suddenly being thrust into the world’s largest Kindergarten with teacher talking down to his little charges as if they were really, really stupid.

I won’t sport with your intelligence by mentioning all the other mind-numbing slogans we’ve been fed this year, suffice it to say that phrases such as “social bubble” and “Covid-secure” would be deeply funny were it not for the seriousness of the situation into which those coming up with such tripe have placed us (as an aside, are such buildings for which it is claimed that they are “Covid-secure” also “Flu-Secure” and “Cold-Secure”?)

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.

Chief of them is the idea that we must all avoid each other. I cannot even begin to think how destructive this has become. In a normal society, if you or I have symptoms of a particularly nasty seasonal respiratory illness, which is what Covid-19 is, we would avoid one another. Obviously. But the idea of perfectly healthy people avoiding other perfectly healthy people must qualify as one of the most absurd concepts ever dreamt up. Not only is it self-evidently unnecessary, it is bound to have long-terms consequences for the way we view one another, the way we relate to one another, the way we behave around one another. It turns us from seeing one another as humans, made in the Image of God, to walking virus carriers and a potential risk. Some people now literally behave as if they are navigating their way through a crowd of potential terrorists, rather than simply walking through a group of fellow humans.

People avoidance is not just deeply destructive from a psychological and social perspective, it is also deeply cruel. The idea that a grandparent cannot have contact with their children or grandchildren is just obscene. And the very thought of the elderly being left to fester away in care homes, rather than being allowed contact with their families is sick. Yet that’s what we’ve done, or allowed to be done.

And of course, I cannot leave off talking about dehumanisation without mentioning masks. These wretched things were introduced in the Summer, long after the epidemic had waned, at a time when they could not possibly have done any good, even if they had been capable of doing any good. Why were they introduced? Partly to keep the fear-narrative going, even though there was extraordinarily little risk of dying of a seasonal respiratory virus at that time of the year. But even more important, they are a sign of submission. They are a, “we can do with you what we like moment.” They are nothing to do with health. They are a psychological mask, and even more than the social distancing, they have served to alter the way we see one another and are seen by others.

Millions of people humiliated by the Marketing Team of Covid-19 and their infantile slogans. Millions of people dehumanised by having their faces, their smiles, their laughter, their thoughtfulness etc covered to make them into expressionless drones. That was the year we just lived through. Will 2021 be the year a critical mass try to escape the Kindergarten and return to being human?

Here is an article that shows how much impact the shutdowns and resulting isolation have had on mental health:

“Chief of them is the idea that we must all avoid each other. I cannot even begin to think how destructive this has become. In a normal society”

This is a backhanded endorsement of the discredited “herd immunity” approach to COVID. The King of Sweden, which pursued herd immunity, has proclaimed it a failure, as death rates re many times higher than in surrounding nations that has stay at home orders.

COVID deniers are reduced to infantile temper tantrums. that’s where the infant like behavior lies.

Looking at it from real science,,, the virus has admittedly not been isolated and has not been proven to cause the disease they call Sars 2 using the Koch postulate.

Then we have them lying about the number of deaths. Doctors and hospitals are PAID to jot down Covid on the death cert.

The masks. Many countries have had mask mandates for well over 6 months. Those same nations are supposedly having a ‘surge’ in covid cases.

Which brings up lockdowns. No lockdown has shown to be effective. Destroying an entire economy with destructive methods will only add to the misery.

Then they have redefined a case as anyone that tests positive usually with the PCR test. The PCR test was never designed to diagnose infection per inventor Kary Mullis. I mean,,, One would think he knew a thing or two about the test HE invented.

The PCR test can be modulated by using the number of cycles. Fauci has himself stated that over 35 cycles would not be reliable and would cause many false positives. Yet the FDA in the USA has made 40 cycles the standard. So,,, increase cycles, more positives, they claim a surge. Decrease cycles, less positives, they claim their idiotic mandates are working. I suggest they will do this after their vaccine is out for awhile.

And lastly they claim that now that we destroyed our economies,,, closed millions of business and made jobless millions of people worldwide, we should now rebuild a ‘green economy’.

One should be able to easily see the scam going on here. Yet many go along hoping to get some relief from government in freshly printed money.

As an aside,,, I do not know, nor have I met ANYONE who knows anyone that had a death caused by this disease. One would think a deadly disease they’re claiming people would be dropping dead all around us. As I am going on 72, my odds are greater than 95% for recovery yet they want to plug me with a vaccine they managed to concoct without ever laying eyes on the virus. A vaccine they admit makes people very, very sick. Add insult to injury they only tested very healthy people and very few elderly and none of those were really aged.

Yet as much proof that shows scientifically the virus does not exist, pretty much everyone claims it exists! When I ask for their evidence all I get is a blank stare. Nothing,,, NOTHING,,, no matter how much evidence I provide,,, seems to change their minds.

It is utterly mind boggling.

If anything, the number of deaths is underestimated, if excess mortality is used as the basis of the estimate.

If any sting: dreamjoemoer, the number of deaths from what. I thought so. Best you quit brown nosing Fauchi and get your facts straight, a non-existent disease can’t cause sickness nor death, unless of course you’re down on your knees taking the Gates of Mel Pfizer Putin you on V double prick jab, but then, of course, you know best, via hidden hand lies so easily impressed, so keep on covering up with the muzzletov hijab, and you might just save that last remaining functioning brain cell, and, oh yes, Big Brother says, ‘stay safe and stay well’.

There is no excess mortality…. They had to cancel flu this year just to increase the Sars 2 death numbers for the mask wearing morons. The CDC ADMITS only 6% of the BS deaths are caused by the non existent virus… That puts the number down to 18,000.

The average age of dying is over 80. That about 5 years longer than the average life span! And those were killed by doctors changing records to indicate Do Not Resuscitate.

Then you have the idiot governors that send known sick elderly back to nursing homes who then infected and killed many with real diseases.

And then you have governments PAYING hospitals and doctors to diagnose Sars 2. Anyone think this would be necessary with a real killer disease?

I am no doctor but I know a con when I see it.

Your a gullible one.

According to a New York Times report, 356,000 excess deaths occurred nationwide from March 15 to November 21, which is 19 percent higher compared to previous years. Even this figure may be an undercount since recent death statistics have to be updated and the Centers for Disease Control’s archaic system is lagging in actual numbers. If the current estimates hold, the total deaths by the end of December will be a staggering 401,000.

“The average age of dying is over 80. That about 5 years longer than the average life span! And those were killed by doctors changing records to indicate Do Not Resuscitate.”

False propaganda. Which T-rumpsucking source provided this?

“And then you have governments PAYING hospitals and doctors to diagnose Sars 2. Anyone think this would be necessary with a real killer disease?” Prove it.
