WHAT kind of person knows that a government policy is causing misery, unemployment, destroying children’s education, turning teenagers suicidal, crashing the economy, running up an unprecedented level of debt that is now greater than the entire country and says: So what?
Those people are called lockdown hawks, and they don’t care about the utter human destruction this evil policy has caused.
Julia Hartley-Brewer put out a tweet asking for individual stories of the hardships the lockdown has caused and to read the thread is to remind yourself once again that what is happening is evil, immoral and unethical.
Those on the Right who have been supporting this policy, that has been imported from China of all places, should be ashamed of themselves. There is very little evidence that lockdowns work, and even if they did, they fail the test of proportionality.
The lockdown also fails on moral and ethical grounds. It intentionally seeks to crush the individual rights of millions to save an institution, ‘the NHS.’
Just because you might like the NHS, and it might save other people’s lives, does not make it right. You cannot crush the rights of one individual in such a brutal and disproportionate way to save another – that is why, in a nutshell, we do not harvest the organs of one healthy person to save the lives of five people. It might be justified on utilitarian grounds, but it fails morally.
Even on utilitarian grounds, this lockdown fails: It will no doubt destroy more lives than it saves.
But why bother arguing with these people, because in my heart I know they just don’t care. They are all right, Jack. Some are bought and paid for, a small percentage might be true believers. But in truth they don’t care about this mother who had to talk about suicide to her teenage daughter who is so depressed by the lockdown, or this mother who is going under because of it.
Well, that’s their problem, say lockdown hawks. They should just suck it up.
The attack on our children, teenagers, and university students is perhaps the most evil of all. Let’s just take the four, five and six-year olds who have had their last year of school interrupted.
They were kicked out of the classrooms before Easter and even though the Government said Key Stage One pupils should return from June 1, many did not. For those that did, it was rarely full-time until the end of term.
When September came, many were sent home again on and off, because of the ridiculous self-isolation scheme – some other kid coughed in their class, so the entire class was sent home for 14 days. And then they never went back after Christmas.
The early years are the most critical for children. This is where they learn to read and write. Lockdown hawks don’t give a damn if this generation have had their schooling destroyed in this way; they don’t care.
These children are expendable, they can’t fight back, they can’t vote and have no power. They have been sacrificed on the altar of Covid.
To support this is morally degenerate. Write that down: If you support the closing of schools to young children for more or less than a year, you are morally degenerate.
I bet – just taking an educated guess here – that many who do support this policy of sacrificing kids had an excellent education themselves.
So, when you get angry thinking about the fact that your children have been sacrificed to save Boris Johnson’s political life and the lives of the lackeys who support him, this is completely natural. You should be angry.
If someone came into your house and started threatening your children’s mental health and education, you’d be angry and defend them. This is what you should do now. You should do whatever it takes to protect your family.
Oh, but there is a virus, we are constantly told. Yes, there is a virus. But the virus is not government policy, whereas the lockdown is. Do you see the distinction? The Government intentionally inflicted this evil lockdown on people, so must be held responsible for it.
You are not responsible for the virus, any more than you are responsible for a hurricane. Any attempt to make you responsible is a campaign of terror designed to crush you.
What they are doing to children is cruel. It is unforgivable. Don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise.
