Virtually no attention has been given to the consequences of the government and the gonzo media reaction to Covid19. Instead, there is incessant talk of "new cases" (translated positive test results on mostly perfectly healthy people from a faulty test), otiose masks, tracking minute-by-minute, social distancing, no handshakes, horror stories, new waves, and savior vaccines and drugs. https://www.asifthinkingmatters.com/blog/category/covid-19
Those headlines are a distraction from the real damage being done by incompetent and unfettered pathological governments reveling in authoritarianism, a media enriching itself by inciting panic, and a fearful and obedient uninformed public. The focus should be on deaths due to the response to C19, not questionable deaths due to the virus.
There is a deafening silence about consequent deaths and disease from the despair resulting from depression, immunosuppression, divorce, family and other violence, prescription and street drug overuse, impaired access to medical care due to lockdowns, loss of incentive for innovation and entrepreneurship, loneliness, helplessness, isolation of the elderly, the travail and disorientation of urban flight, and loss of will to live in a society in which freedoms are removed. There is also the death toll of improper medical interventions such as respirators and dangerous drugs used instead of safe, natural, and proven therapies.
The economic effect of shutting down economies will be felt most by the poor. Unicef projects 1.2 mill children will die due to C19 government actions, a 45% increase in death rate. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/science-and-disease/unicef-warns-lockdown-could-kill-covid-19-model-predicts-12, https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/women-and-girls/million-women-children-globally-could-die-pandemic-diverts-health
Without a doubt, scaring, masking, and isolating well people, destroying jobs and the economy, and restricting liberty is a jejune approach and the opposite of a salutary solution.
In the following charts tracking just a few of the degenerative diseases, all the bars above the solid lines represent increased deaths during the time of the shutdown and fear-mongering.
A CDC survey this summer found that one in ten of the 5,400 respondents had seriously considered suicide in the previous month—about twice as many who had thought of taking their lives in 2018. For young adults, aged 18 to 24, the proportion was an astonishing one in four. https://www.economist.com/international/2020/10/05/will-the-economic-and-psychological-costs-of-covid-19-increase-suicides
Although ignored up to this point, the spin-off consequences of the reaction to the C19 will far outweigh any disease or death from the virus. Yes, good intentions can be found everywhere in the time of C19. But good intentions are not the same as competency and facing objective reality.
Objective reality proves that the blind acceptance of the C19 dogma makes it more like a medieval cult religion than an informed approach to health and public policy.
If you have been investigating the facts, not just listening to the "news," you will have to concur with this lament by Wm. Briggs on his site: "So the disease is over-hyped, the test is bogus, masks do no good, lockdowns ditto and this whole thing has been an insanely destructive farce. But the poor, foolish people still think they’re going to die of the plague and obediently wear their masks. That is why it’s possible this attempted neo-bolshevik revolution by the oligarchs and their stooges may succeed, for a while. The people are astonishingly deceived, and it seems nothing can undeceive them. They look like zombies in their masks. It’s depressing and infuriating . . . "
Become informed, alert others, and demand proper actions by leaders.
