In yet another example of the utter destruction that people have allowed to befall them, a recent study from the Royal Society Open Science journal found that lockdowns in the United Kingdom drove roughly 60,000 children to clinical depression.
Researchers found that there was a 27.1% prevalence of depression in their sample, a number far higher than would have occurred without lockdowns. This percentage, according to the UK Telegraph, equates to roughly 60,000 extra children who suffered as a result of the Chinese coronavirus lockdowns than otherwise would have under normal circumstances.
The study says: “After controlling for baseline scores and several school and pupil-level characteristics, depressive symptoms were higher in the COVID-19 group. These findings demonstrate that the COVID-19 pandemic increased adolescent depressive symptoms beyond what would have likely occurred under non-pandemic circumstances.”
One could argue that the study is saying that the pandemic itself is what drove children to depression, but one would have to be awfully disingenuous to pretend as though being practically locked in your home without the ability to see your friends and/or extended family wouldn’t have any sort of negative psychological effects.
We saw images of children being forced to wear masks and sitting by themselves in cafeterias, and they were absolutely miserable. They were literally banned from being able to socialize with their friends, despite the fact that children are the safest demographic regarding the virus.
And this isn’t the only negative side-effect found in the study.
According to the research, 400,000 UK children were referred to mental health specialists for things such as eating disorders and self-harm. How do you see this and not think that the measures taken during the pandemic were not only not beneficial towards “slowing” the spread of the virus (it seems to be a seasonal thing, kind of like, oh, well, what do you know, THE FLU!) but were actively harmful towards society.
Even in China, we are currently seeing whole cities being forced to stay indoors, not being able to even leave to get food, just because ONE person in that entire city tests positive for the virus they created. The CCP is currently performing psychological terrorism on their own populace, not because the virus is just that terrible or even because they think it’s just that terrible, but because this is the best opportunity to screw their own people over since Mao’s “Great Leap Forward”.
And clinical depression is far from the only problem kids have had to face as a result of evil people’s mandates and cowardly people’s submission. According to Summit News, there has been a shocking outbreak of hepatitis in children as a result of lockdowns and social distancing weakening their immune systems, with most of the 169 cases discovered having occurred in children under the age of 5. 17 of those little kids have had to get liver transplants and one of them ended up dying.
Again, this comes as a result of a weakened immune system caused by lockdowns and social distancing. You know how sometimes, when a kid gets chicken pox, friends of that kid’s parents who are parents themselves will throw “chicken pox parties” so that their kids develop immunity towards it? Whatever you might think of such a ritual, its benefit is that it does precisely that: helps develop the kids’ immune systems. Lockdowns and social distancing accomplish the opposite of that,and weaken the immune system.
Another negative side-effect, which will likely be a generational one unless we can figure out a way to reverse it, is that many infants have struggled in cognitive development and developed speech disorders as a result of adults around them wearing masks. According to speech therapists, adults wearing masks has caused a 364% increase in patient referrals of toddlers and other very young children.
Little kids learn behavior from their parents, so not being able to see their faces has seemingly caused cognitive development issues in those kids. Which would be strange if not for the fact that I would 100% believe many of those parents were wearing masks inside their own homes like psychopaths.
The damage done to society is far greater than perhaps any of us realize. In an effort to protect ourselves from the biggest mountain-out-of-a-molehill virus with very little lethality, we have destroyed civil liberties, the idea of bodily autonomy, and skewed the very development of the future leaders of this country. And still, there are people out there who want to inject poison into LITTLE CHILDREN and cause even more, perhaps irreparable, damage to them. Oh, and in the meantime, teachers have sought for a way to have sex with those kids too, and call you bigot and terrorist for trying to stop them.
A country which does not protect its children is a country which does not deserve a future and most certainly will not have one.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
