Future costs will be hell to pay. But they won’t be paid by the those who knowingly caused the harm, ignoring all scientifically valid data and acting purely on politics. And they sure as heck did and do know the harm they caused and continue to cause.
As much as I’d like to dimiss this by saying correlation is not causation and that most scientific studies are false, I doubt very much that this is the case. Fear is the most powerful form of persuasion, and I’ve observed it and its affects on adults for 18 months now—children are much more easily damaged. On the plus side, children can also be highly resilient, but all of them, and what is required to recovery?
The nation’s recent lockdown policies and mask mandates will create a generation of children who exhibit lower IQs and signs of social brain damage, according to a clinical psychiatrist for children and adolescents.
Dr. Mark McDonald cited an Aug. 11 study by Brown University (pdf) that found that “children born during the pandemic have significantly reduced verbal, motor, and overall cognitive performance compared to children born pre-pandemic,” during an interview with host Cindy Drukier on a Dec. 25 episode of NTD’s “The Nation Speaks.” NTD is a sister media outlet of The Epoch Times.
The masks, “Zoom schools,” and lockdown mandates have led to “deprivation overall, of social contact, [of] not being able to see faces, being stuck at home all day long, [and this] has actually caused brain damage to the youngsters,” he said.
In another interview in the episode, professor Carl Heneghan, the director of Oxford University’s Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, cited evidence that pandemic restrictions and the “fear we instill into children” has led to the worsening of psychological problems.
Heneghan cited his Oct. 2 study, which concluded that “eight out of 10 children and adolescents report worsening of behavior or any psychological symptoms or an increase in negative feelings due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“School closures contributed to increased anxiety, loneliness and stress; negative feelings due to COVID-19 increased with the duration of school closures,” the study reports. “Deteriorating mental health was found to be worse in females and older adolescents.”
...According to a Dec. 20 study, data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also showed that mental health-related visits in 2020, when pandemic restrictions were first imposed, increased by 24 percent in 5- to 11-year-olds and 31 percent in 12- to 17-year-olds, compared to 2019 data.
WIND: mental health issues don’t just heal up like a small “booboo”—they leave permanent scars, albeit invisible ones. The brain’s actual wiring is permanently affected, in myriad ways.
A society that sacrficies its children for the sake of adults has turned to evil. And we’ve done it with absolutely no scientific evidence for anything but overwhelming harm. And this is only the tip of the iceberg of harms to the population, of all ages.
What we have here, plain for all to see, is the most grotesque modern comprachicos running things. Of course, that’s on top of the same, at government schools.
To top if off, now we’re doing mass experimentation on the rapidly growing bodies of children as young as two years old—children at NIL risk for COVID issues.
