It’s hard to know where to start. So much has been done. So many have suffered. Not because of a virus but due to hasty, reckless, and irrational decisions made by elected leaders and their bevy of experts.
For much of 2022, the world received some respite from the madness we came to know as the “New Normal.”
This nightmare started in January 2020 as the world watched inexplicable scenes of fear and panic coming out of Wuhan, China – the supposed epicentre of what would soon be known as the “global pandemic.”
The Chinese response was swift as they unleashed ruthless quarantine measures and ordered residents to stay home and not leave until the government said otherwise. The population was effectively placed under house arrest, suspected of carrying or transmitting a microscopic viral particle. Henceforth, this practice would be known as lockdown – a term describing the confining of prisoners to their cells.
This tool of social control was copied by hysterical public officials in Italy and then Spain, and before long, most countries instituted versions of Chinese-style lockdowns. Anything to “stop the spread.” Some countries went further and closed their borders for fear someone might inadvertently bring in the viral particle and trigger a new “wave.” As crazy as that might sound, it was the received orthodoxy at that time.
Of course, none of this corresponded with scientific evidence and certainly not common sense. It was hysterical groupthink on steroids. A fit of collective madness, decorated with virtue-signalling motifs.
Locking the population in their homes. Paying businesses to stay shut and paying employees to stay home and work online or not work at all.
Hospitals not treating patients. Employers firing anyone who wouldn’t submit to the corporate needlecraft.
Suddenly ‘public health’ became the new raison d’etre. Overnight, previously bland public officials transformed into flamboyant dictators, intoxicated by newfound powers and backed up by confidence trick game masters like Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates, all of whom seemed to revel in their newfound spotlight.
In the haze of fear-induced ‘mass formation’ psychosis, the population was mesmerised by daily hours-long press conference updates on the pandemic’s progress, starring government health bureaucrats and their politician overlords, entranced by the power on offer.
While doing endless victory laps, politicians have been reticent to admit the catastrophic effect on national economies and the broader global economy. In the United States, the government took the liberty of printing over 4.5 trillion dollars out of thin air to pay for this epic folly. At the time, they assured the populace it was necessary – doled out in direct lumpsum ‘stimulus’ payments to nearly every citizen, along with billion-dollar blank cheques for schools to pay for a failed ‘online education’ experiment. In addition, untold billions were wasted on Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and a conveyor belt of masks, gowns, rubber gloves, and reams of infantile COVID signage. Also, hundreds of billions for completely useless ‘contact tracing’ systems doubling as human tracking apps.
And we can’t forget two of the main profit centres in this global heist: the myriad of non-diagnostic COVID tests and, of course, the so-called vaccines. Most of these expenditures are still running today.
It is almost impossible to calculate the actual economic and societal toll of the COVID response. One peer-reviewed study1 in the Journal of American Medicine estimated the cumulative financial costs of the pandemic at more than $16 trillion, approximately 90% of the annual gross domestic product of the US. Consequently, the wealth and inequality gap increased by orders of magnitude in the last 18 months. The ten richest men in the world doubled their fortunes during the government COVID splurge while the incomes of 99 per cent of humanity fell.
But while their plans were cunning and comprehensive in scale and scope, the globalist establishment did not calculate how their draconian global coup d’etat wouldbring together dissidents from all strata of society, political persuasions, and religions – every walk of life. And their numbers are growing by the day, a bittersweet for the elite class because it’s in direct proportion to the constantly climbing number of injuries and untimely deaths associated with the experimental injections.
Early on, it became apparent that so-called ‘freedom-loving’ Western governments were emulating China’s authoritarian Zero-COVID societal shutdown. Countries like Italy, Israel, Spain, Canada, and New Zealand went all-out to flex their totalitarian bona fides. But the standard bearer was Australia, a nation transformed into a Zero-COVID nightmare. Autocrat State premiers and chief ministers formed the equivalent of COVID Stasi enforcement divisions, even usingthe military to police strict lockdowns and coerce the entire population into taking experimental injections. Melbourne, the capital of the state of Victoria and Australia’s second-largest city, endured six lockdowns to become the most locked-down city in the world. People defying lockdowns or daring to walk in public without a mask – in parks or on the beach – were hunted down by the police, to be fined or worse.
