If you ask me, for a government to use behavioural science against its people should be a crime, says Calvin Robinson
The Covid response, from locking down individuals in a free country to mandating medical procedures and attempting to implement medical apartheid, may be the biggest scandal in living memory
Why is it that every time it seems like we are about to have a breakthrough on holding politicians to account over Covid, some huge political news comes along and redirects our attention?
This week we heard Pfizer executive J Small on record saying they never tested the Pfizer jab for transmissibility.
Now, Pfizer were never required to test the vaccine for transmissibility because there was political pressure to roll the vaccine out – but governments made decisions to impose lockdown restrictions and run public health campaigns on the basis that the jabs WOULD prevent COVID being passed on.
That’s what we were led to believe. Some argue that studies from Israel and the UK quickly influenced the view that the vaccines helped prevent transmission following roll out –but I think knee jerk and draconian lockdown measures were unnecessary.
These decisions had a huge impact on people's livelihoods and they are still at stake due to the cost-of-lockdown crisis. An unprecedented number of pubs are closing, the high street has been decimated, and the jabs are still being pushed.
Rob Roos MEP put a question to Pfizer director J Small during a COVID hearing in the European Parliament, and her laughter and unequivocal answer sent shockwaves through the media.
If you ask me, for a government to use behavioural science against its people should be a crime. Politicians are elected to represent us, not manipulate us. To me, the whole ‘don’t kill granny’ campaign was wicked, but that was just the start.
Durham Cathedral implemented a vaccine passport, requiring the faithful masses to provide proof of covid status before entering.
I believe this is counter-Scriptural, we all know Christ sat with lepers, but of course, Covid is nothing like leprosy; yes, it could be serious, but for many it was like a seasonal influenza.
The Church removed choice from those who wished to be close to God whether they had Covid or not. In my mind there is a word for people who would keep others away from Our Lord – evil.
It’s medical apartheid. Dividing people based on their medical status. Not even their health (be they healthy or infected) but their vaccine status. Vaccine mandates for health workers, for example, make no sense.
Why did hundreds of carers lose their jobs for their personal decision not to receive a vaccine at a time when we apparently needed more care workers than ever? Surely, that’s counterproductive.
If the Covid jab wasn’t initially tested for transmissibility your personal choice would have no impact on other people. It’s down to you to weigh up the health benefits either way and decide for yourself whether you’d be better off taking the jab or not.
I decided not to.
As a relatively young & healthy man with no comorbidities, I saw that a US study showed the adverse reactions from the jab amongst young males made it more of a risk than Covid itself, and that there were concerns in the States of higher than expected rates of heart inflammation in young men. I went on to catch Covid, and frankly, I’ve had worse colds, but now I have natural immunity, which of course, is always superior to superficial immunity, without the risk of heart defects. Win-win?
Why then were people being bullied and pressured into taking the jab? The Archbishop of Canterbury inappropriately moralised the jab during his Christmas message saying,
“Get vaccinated. It’s how we love our neighbour. Loving our neighbour is what Jesus told us to do. It’s Christmas: do what he said.”
In my opinion, using the name of Our Lord to convince people to take a medical procedure they may not want or need, with the benefit of lining the pockets of Big Pharma, is wrong.
I believe we were misinformed by our public institutions, politicians, media outlets and the Church. The covid response, from locking down individuals in a free country to mandating medical procedures and attempting to implement medical apartheid, may be the biggest scandal in living memory. Time will tell.
