Following the science? Bedwetting panic? Or totalitarian control?

weekend blog

Threatening us again

Britain’s great health expert – the Mekon – has spoken:

Sajid Javid has warned us ignorant, unwashed, stupid plebs that, if we don’t behave ourselves, then he’ll lock us down again and again and again and …………. The Mekon claims that the coming lockdowns will be necessary because he is ‘following the science’ and the ‘experts’ insist that lockdowns are the only way to control the Fauci, Wuhan-lab-leaked Chinese plague.

Moreover, other European countries – Denmark, Netherlands and Germany – are also imposing new restrictions on people’s personal freedoms as Fauci infections start rising again there. Austria seems to be going even further as they (from what I have read) are locking down any citizens who have not been vaccinated. Perhaps the Austrians will soon force the unvaccinated to wear yellow stars:

After all, Austrians are just Germans in disguise. They like following orders – befehl ist befehl – and probably have a few yellow stars left over from the 1930s.

Following the science?

There are at least two issues raised when the Mekon and his acolytes – Van Tam, Vallance and Whitty – claim they are ‘following the science’ with their new threats of lockdowns.

Firstly, apparently our government had plans for dealing with a major pandemic and nowhere in those plans was there any mention of using lockdowns and wrecking our economy and the livelihoods of millions. The lockdown option seems to have been something the ‘experts’ dreamed up as they panicked when Fauci Chinese plague infections went through the roof.

The second issue is that the only European country which didn’t lock down its citizens – Sweden – appears to have an extremely low rate of Chinese plague hospitalisations per million of population:

Sweden also has one of the lowest rates of deaths per million of population from the Fauci plague:

When in a hole, keep digging?

I can understand that, at the start of the WuFlu outbreak, panicking politicians went down the lockdown route as they saw the chaos in Italy and then Spain with people dying in hospital corridors. But we have now had two years of Xi Pingpong’s Wuhan-lab, biological weapon plague. Now we have a real-world case study – Sweden – which didn’t go for lockdowns and yet had much better results than the lockdown countries.

If our rulers were genuinely ‘following the science’, an ignoramus like myself might think surely they would copy Sweden rather than just repeating their own failed lockdown policies? But if our rulers were to abandon their lockdown mania, that would mean admitting they got it wrong. That would mean there was no need to wreck our economy. That would mean hundreds of thousands of businesses were destroyed and millions lost their jobs for nothing.

That would mean exposing our rulers to ridicule for their stupidity and incompetence. So, even though Sweden has spent two years showing us how to manage the pandemic, our rulers are trapped into repeating their own failed policies.

When in a hole ………

Manipulating the masses?

Incidentally, I’ve noticed that when it looked like things were going to go horribly wrong in Sweden, our mainstream media seemed to delight in heaping opprobrium on Sweden’s more laissez faire approach to managing the Chinese plague. But now that the Swedish approach has proved to be the right one, our mainstream media seem to have gone very quiet indeed about Sweden’s success.

It’s almost as if our mainstream media are taking their marching orders from the government’s Behavioural Insights Team (affectionately known as the ‘Nudge Unit’) and that current orders from our government are ‘terrify the plebs into cowering obedience again’.

Here’s a definition of the word ‘totalitarian’ – relating to a system of government that is centralized and dictatorial and requires complete subservience to the state.

Lockdowns, mandatory vaccines, no jab no job, vaccine passports, no travel without the correct papers, demonisation of those who won’t submit – this all sounds pretty totalitarian to me.

    Yes too right. They want to divide us and whip up hatred against unvaccinated people – but all our hatred and contempt need to be aimed directly back at the british state and the vast majority of elected MPs who have failed the people. The actions of some in the government have been responsible for mass deaths of the elderly and unwell. People like Handcock and Johnson should be on trial for their failure to follow studied and researched plans. The decision to lockdown was based on politics because Ealing hospital was overwhelmed and the tories didnt want to be seen to be responsible for that so it was entirely to protect themselves regardless of the cost and death they caused.

    It’s totalitarian, no doubt.
    I doubt that changes at the ballot box will have any effect. This a co-ordinated drive by western nations to submit ppl to state control of all things that we do in our lives.
    The education system is designed to keep the masses in the dark. The dim are easy to control through mass media mis-information, whether that be health, climate or whatever the next panic will be.
    Can we rely on the army to remove our leaders?

    Some say we should be listening to the science but all I hear is Blah, Blah, Blah. As for following the science the yellow star reminds us that Hitler followed the science of eugenics and we know how that worked out.

    It seems we are going back to the dark ages when the church and its leaders kept us in fear of God and in ignorance. Now the State keeps us in fear of ourselves and uses educated imbecility to prevent us understanding anything. It is impossible for us to understand every aspect of science but this does not mean that we should allow the government and scientist to impose their views on us. If they cannot explain their justifications with evidence we can understand to enable us to make our own decisions then they are not fit to govern or call themselves scientists.

    Steven Pinker has a 12 part radio series starting based on his book Rationality. He says it is irrational to decline the vaccine because the cost benefit analysis says we should. He is another who thinks that we should not have the right to decide for ourselves, and agree to whatever the government wants to force on us. This is not rational. If he believes the vaccine works for him, then why does he want everybody else to be vaccinated. Our body, our choice applies.

    Loppoman asks if we can rely on the army to remove our leaders – the army is loyal to the crown and the if the crown wants to keep its privileged position it has to be loyal to the government.

    I recently saw a comment from Groucho Marx – “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedies.” Celebrities aren’t what they used to be.

    Mail Online headline: “How I won the Covid war: Matt Hancock targets a £100,000 book deal to tell his ‘heroic’ story of being at the helm in pandemic (until he lost his job for breaking social distancing rules with his lover.”

    Apparently, “Ex-health secretary in talks with HarperCollins over blow-by-blow account of ‘heated’ lockdown rows with ministers, aides, scientists and medics.”

    Have a look at this article and others on the CEO of NHS England, Amanda Pritchard, lying that Covid admissions are 14 times higher than this time last year when admissions were actually 40% less. This is the CEO. She is obviously not going to be debating anyone on anything any time soon.

    Why is the head of NHS England peddling dodgy Covid stats – and why didn’t the media challenge her?
