December lockdown planned
It appears the govt is planning yet another firebreak lockdown in December as the only alternative to jab freedom licences being introduced (although one assumes there is no chance of the latter not being introduced).
It's now clear the ultimate goal was the introduction of totalitarian communist freedom licences and surveillance fueled by a cooked up virus with a negligible fatality rate.
NYE fireworks in London cancelled as presumably they haven't yet decided how to check freedom licences on the street for that number of slaves in attendance.
This govt knows no limits to its depravity in blackmailing children and parents, nor the public at large.
3 weeks to flatten the curve.
15 million jabs to "freedom".
The jabs are the way out of the "pandemic".
They are utter fucking liars.
If we're ever to get back to normal people need to make as much noise as possible and pushback against every single restriction forced on the population.
Otherwise we'll *never* get normal back.
This thing isn't going away. Accepting any restrictions now is a de facto acceptance of them forever more.
Nice try, ewlem. And yet you conveniently forget to mention that the average Covid death is an octogenarian with two or three co-morbidities, as we like to call them. In light of that, 1 in 400 is quite negligible. Between 600,000 and 700,000 people die every year in Britain. Most Covid deaths would have occurred anyway of either causes either within the last few years or the next couple. Get a grip. Remember that in the war, young and healthy men and women were being perforated by bullets and blown apart by bombs, while whole cities were literally being destroyed. The comparison doesn't work.
It might be a good idea, in light of the pandemic, to form a rule that the principle of freedom is a more significant condition of communal and personal well-being than measures that curtail this condition under the guise of protecting the population from a virus whose complex nature is only rendered more problematic by the medical interventions supposed to alleviate its threat. Looking at the catastrophe that has been the vaccination programme, it might appear as if the medical intervention was merely part of some other underlying agenda since it has been so ineffective at promoting immunisation against a pathogen that would probably have been long gone without the interventions. The fact that the WHO had to change crucial criteria governing the institution of a pandemic might indicate that we should value freedom, as a condition of community and personal viability, above being ruled by the dictates of public health experts and officials who trade complex representations, outside of clinical exposure to the form of the pathogen, so as to bring about desired goals as mediated as their perception of the pathogen.
There are fundamental liberties that should not be contravened because we have seen what happens when they are and solutions should be framed to sustain certain social and public conditions because they are necessary for human well being but this is precisely why they are eroded by malicious agents and, because institutions are the means by which human beings affect their social reality, these malicious agents tend to form, or infiltrate, institutions, using rhetorics of concern and public good whilst mutilating the forms via which they supposedly realise the ideals. You end up with damaging outcomes carried out under the guise of public goods. Medicine itself, particularly psychiatry, is full of such instances.
