And so we come to March 23rd, and lockdown's first
birthday. Or, as we call it here, the longest two weeks in history.
12 calendar months.
It's a long time since "2 weeks to flatten the curve", became an

for the "greater good". It was not a hard decision with arguments on

The "risks" were in fact
certainties, and the "benefits" entirely fictional.
Lockdowns don't work...!
It's really important to remember
Even if you subscribe to the belief that "Sars-Cov-2" is a
discrete entity (which is
far from proven), or that it is incredibly
dangerous (which is demonstrably untrue), the lockdown has not
worked to, in any way, limit this supposed threat.
They don't make any
difference, the curves don't flatten and the R0 number doesn't drop
and the lives aren't saved (quite the opposite, as we've all seen).
Just look at the graphs.

UK (lockdown) and

The scale of the

Nabarro, World Health Organization (WHO)
special envoy for Covid-19, said this of lockdowns
back in October:
"We in the
World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the
primary means of control of the virus [...]
look at what's happened to the tourism industry... look what's
happening to small-holding farmers [...] it seems we may have a
doubling of world poverty by next year.
We may well
have at least a doubling of child malnutrition [...]
This is a
terrible, ghastly global catastrophe."

Unflattering, but better than the truth.
Because the truth
is that the government isn't mistaken or scared or stupid... they are
malign. And dishonest. And cruel.
All the suffering
of lockdown was entirely predictable and deliberately imposed. For
reasons that have nothing to do with helping people and everything
to do controlling them.
It's been more than
