When I heard of the ludicrous anti-democratic idea of a 6pm curfew for men ‘to make streets safer for women’, I smelt a Sage rat.
I have no doubt I am preaching to the converted when I say that the reaction to the Covid-19 ‘pandemic’ is totally overblown and has little to do with public health but much more about power and control. The worst culprits for taking away our rights and liberties are the greenies who are all in on the Build Back Better Great Reset WEF evil, because they know the next stage in the plan is environmental shutdowns of industry and seasonal lockdowns to ‘save the planet’ This is why a Green Party peer proposed curfews. It also gives the Government a convenient opt-out if somehow the sheep-like public of the UK finally wake up and they get a well-deserved backlash to their anti-liberty antics: they can roll their eyes, chuckle and say ‘Crazy greenies at it again, huh?’
As with Sage, I think it’s very likely that politicians (drunk with power that they don’t want to relinquish) have behavioural psychologists to advise them so that they have a good idea of how the public (to whom they are unable to relate as they live in a different universe) will react to proposed laws and legislation. So when something is proposed like a 6pm curfew for men, which on the face of it is absurd, I believe politicians know what they are doing. After all, we have allowed our freedoms to be destroyed in the last year with barely a whimper over a bad flu, so why wouldn’t we meekly accept curfews?
It’s like haggling. The seller knows how much he purchased the product for, and knows the target price to make a good profit. The buyer thinks he knows this. The seller starts off asking a ridiculous price, and the buyer proposes a quarter of it. Back and forth they go until they arrive at 40 per cent of the asking price. Because this is under half, the buyer thinks he has got a good deal. What he doesn’t know is that the seller bought the product for 20 per cent of the asking price, so he has just doubled his money by accepting 40 per cent.
This is what I think will happen now:
Public: A 6pm curfew for men? Never!
Government: Ok, ok, we have heard you and we have listened. Let’s be reasonable – will you accept 7pm and so that it’s fair make it not just for men but for everyone?
Public: No, no, still crazy, I won’t go a minute under 9pm.
