I am hopeful because the mask wearing/lockdowns etc were accepted out of a mixture of fear and misguided goodwill, an effort to help the hospitals and protect vulnerable people. In some ways it was an easy sell despite the drastic consequences. However what they are trying to do here is sell the idea of a "better world" involving loss of all freedom, constant surveillance and a communist dictatorship. It is quite easy to manipulate the people through fear of an immediate threat, less so in the name of some vague "progress" that is a very obvious trojan horse for tyranny. I think we need to get past the "sheep" labels and realise that the reaction of many people, while we might be justified in calling it weak, is understandable, and if we want to beat this evil we need them on our side. I am hopeful because the Covid reaction while ridiculous was a genuine act of goodwill by frightened people, many of whom now feel they have done their bit and will not be prepared to now see their lives and livelihoods destroyed in the name of some kind of "socialist progress". Agreed. We might have a bit of banter on here about "sheep", but I don't think that will help our cause calling the public that in real life. I think there are probably a lot of people that know things are not right, but they're just not as far down the rabbit hole as some of us here. My family and pals are not buying this crap anyway, but maybe it's because they can see how much it has been tearing me up, I dunno.
