On November 1, 2021, The Hill featured a segment from the program, Rising where Kim Iversen discussed the Great Barrington Declaration (GBD). According to Iversen, the authors’ predictions were spot on — lockdowns proved to be a disaster with devastating consequences for younger people who often are at little to no risk of severe COVID. The 11-minute video clip is posted on Youtube, [see in the attached article below, also, read The Great Barrington Declaration: Life must return to normal for the healthy, the vulnerable must be protected to know more about The Great Barrington Declaration].
Iversen reminds us: “During that time, everyone was still all about the lockdowns. The common wisdom of the day was to stay home, save lives and wait for a vaccine. Schools closed, businesses were shuttered, and people were scrambling to figure out how they would make ends meet. Those who came out against lockdown policies were labeled selfish grandma killers or were told they were in the pockets of Wall Street, only caring about profits.”
But after one year, we are now seeing that The Great Barrington Declaration was right in many aspects. Here are a few of them:
- The declaration warned a post-lockdown world would see worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings, and deteriorating mental health [see New Study: Lockdowns negatively affect mental health of teens; Lockdowns leave half of teenagers battling anxiety and trauma; Over a million cancer deaths could result due to lockdowns].
- The declaration’s authors predicted children will not have access to the regular childhood vaccination schedule.
Editor’s Note: Kim Iversen’s focus on pivotal issues should be a wake-up call to other journalists. No one from the mainstream media (MSM) has handled these issues and pondered the pros and cons of the covid mandates, which, from the beginning was already geared towards failure.
In the Great Barrington Declaration (GBD), the most compassionate approach they promote is Focused Protection, which balances the risks and benefits of reaching natural immunity. It is allowing those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at the highest risk through a more proactive approach. [See these two experts, Dr. Knut Wittkowski who says that without restrictions, the pandemic would have ended in six weeks, and pro-vaccine expert Dr. Geert Vanden Boosche who is adamant with his claims that natural immunity, not vaccines create herd immunity Dr. Knut Wittkowski: Lockdowns are creating a new epidemic and Geert Vanden Boosche: Natural immunity, not vaccines, will create herd immunity. We have waited for a year for these vaccines, and then where did it lead us? See Nicanor Perlas’ briefing paper COVID-19 PANDEMIC: THE PHILIPPINE EXPERIENCE. We gambled away our future, only to pivot back to the same things we have been saying since April 2020.]
However, this was not followed widely, except for Sweden which is now showing success in controlling the virus [see Mask-free, lockdown-free Sweden is close to ZERO daily COVID deaths]. Other countries, especially those with the most stringent mandates suffered the most [see Peru: The country with the world’s strictest lockdown also has the worst excess deaths; Stanford’s Dr. John Ioannidis destroys the Covid lockdown narrative].
Instead of recognizing GBD, governments have done the opposite and have employed a one-size-fits-all strategy to reach the alleged herd immunity. They have instituted broad lockdowns without considering their impacts on the economy, health, and other aspects of society. Now they are implementing indiscriminate vaccination without realizing that these vaccines are experimental and could lead to dangerous side effects.
Looking back, where did these “broad” policies bring us?
Now, despite rising vaccine rates, we are losing our freedoms even more. Countries are returning to lockdowns [see Despite High Vaccination rates, Europe is Returning to Lockdowns; Gibraltar, the World’s Most Vaccinated Country has Canceled Christmas Celebrations Amid COVID Spike; Israel’s vaccine pass will expire 6 months after second dose, people will need booster shots to enter non-essential businesses; France has Toppled Liberty; Israel vaccine czar warns citizens they need to prepare for fourth injections, says, “This is our life from now on”; Australian Health Chief: COVID will be with us “forever”, people must “get used to” endless booster shots].
Many governments are imposing coercive vaccine mandates, which in turn is creating a two-tiered society, and normalizing privacy invasion [see Los Angeles Implements Vaccine Passports, Creates Divisive, Discriminatory, Two-tiered Society; IATF Planning to Incentivize the Vaccinated; Matt Hancock: We have no duty of care to those who refuse the vaccines; ‘Let them die’: Canada’s largest newspaper promotes hostility toward the unvaccinated; No freedom in Australia: Unvaccinated cannot participate in society; UK Details Shift to Digitalized Identification: Is This the Reason Why They are Pushing for Digital Health Passports?].
These did not happen overnight. This all began when we allowed our governments to suspend our rights and put us in a “2-week lockdown” and then, later on, to extend the pandemic restrictions for “another 2 weeks” to “flatten the curve” [Didn’t we tell you that allowing governments the power to suspend civil liberties was dangerous? See Death Rate, Science, Lockdown, Fear, the “New Normal”, Vaccines, Social Control and the Immune System.]
Totalitarianism is no longer just an idea, it is now flourishing in many countries. If we continue conforming, we will steer our society and the younger generation to a future full of uncertainties. They are on the road to an imminent destiny, they will possess nothing, and worst of all, they are stripped off of their sovereignty.
We are reminded of a meme: ‘I will conform so that this will end. Now we are seeing, it is by conforming that this is not ending.’
