Pros and Cons of Lockdowns

5th September 2021

By Baldmichael Theresoluteprotector’sson

Some people think lockdowns are great; others think they are awful. Yet others, like me now, realise there are pros and cons, benefits and downsides.

So what are these? I have listed my thoughts and observations from the last nearly year and a half. I might add others, and if anyone wishes to suggest things I will consider and amend my list accordingly.

Here it is:

Pros

    1. Many people had time to reassess their lives and priorities, spend more time with families and get outside to exercise more.

       

    2. Many people had time to research various aspects of life properly and find out the truth about what has been going on in the world.

       

    3. Most people had to stop rushing around and start thinking for once ‘How can I do this better, live better, eat better’.

       

    4. The world was quieter, with less road traffic and very limited air travel.

       

    5. The world was less polluted and breathing fresh air more likely. Certain big polluters have been forced to cut back, such as Carnival Cruise Line. It is worth reading this link.

      And this about the corporation.

    6. One could listen to the natural world about us and commune with nature and living creatures. The living creatures also have shown less fear and will commune with us!

       

    7. One could interact more with one’s neighbours and find they were nicer than expected or more interesting as we learnt more about them. Indeed, to love our neighbours as we learned to love ourselves more, both mind and body.

       

    8. We stopped spending money on trivial stuff at the shops (by and large), and we have had a good clear out, shared stuff with others and repaired our homes.

       

    9. The lack of air traffic meant that the reflection of UVB was less and sunburn has become much less of an issue.

       

    10. We realised how much the world had become polluted and have started to push more to remove the toxins from our bodies and the planet.

       

    11. We realised, at least some of us did in the UK, how useless the NHS has become, how much money has been wasted in its monstrous, beastly administration and substantially unnecessary services.

       

    12. We realised, at least some of us did in the UK, how useless many doctors are, be they doctors of medicine or professors with a PhD. And how many of them are ‘run’ by the big pharmaceutical companies which are only interested in money and not people’s health. Their greed and stupidity is being exposed for all to see.

       

    13. We realised that the police service has degraded into a police force which tries to force its employers, the people, into submission for trivial or innocent matters whilst all too often ignoring the real crimes of murder, sexual exploitation and theft/fraud.

      And descending into gender madness, the result of ignoring the guidance and wisdom of God on how to live well.

    14. In the UK, lockdowns did give the government breathing space to deal with the stupid EU bureaucracy and its unelected ministers trying to browbeat the UK into submission. And without the idiot whining remainers interfering to much as they cowered for their lives!

       

    15. The evil in the EU has become increasingly clear as corruption is exposed more and more. The EU as an entity will collapse and Germany, which has been at the centre of it all (as it has been for at least 150 years), will suffer the consequences for its sins.

      Not all Germans are behind this of course; there are good and bad within every family. But the overall trait of Germany has been to dominate the world, by force in some manner or other. I shall be writing more about Germany in due course.

Cons

    1. The love of many grew cold as they were fearful of what Covid 19 is, in reality the annual ‘flu.

       

    2. Care homes were shut up and the bulk of excess deaths in 2020 were in those places. No one went in from outside to check their loved ones were being looked after properly, or what the care home staffs were up to; People lied, people died.

       

    3. Deaths occurred because people died of loneliness, gave up hope of seeing someone who cared.

       

    4. Life became very awkward for those who wanted to get on with something useful and found the relevant stores closed.

       

    5. We had to go online much more to find things we wanted; this might have saved unnecessary travel, but meant we could not check if the items we wanted were really suitable. Having to rewrap things up and post them back is irritating and can be costly.

       

    6. The large stores and online retailers made large sums of money at the expense of small and medium sized businesses. People have been made redundant and struggle to find new work. But then that is not new.

       

    7. The public limited companies have had an excuse to get rid of cheques and will only pay dividends by crediting to your account; this leaves your account potentially vulnerable as they store your bank details.

       

    8. Cash has been seen to be potentially contaminated with ‘the virus’, whereas in fact it has never been a concern, just part of the big lie. Going to digital money lets governments and ‘big brother’ control the populations, and does not deal with the immense digital frauds being perpetrated.

       

    9. Good people will always do good by and large and they are the ones who suffer under controlling regimes, not the crooks and criminals who get away with murder, all too often in a literal sense.

       

    10. Suicides and murders have increased from domestic stress. Mental health issues have soared.

       

    11. Psychological damage will be immense on those conditioned to see a ‘new normal’ as mask wearing and anti-social distancing as I call it. I refuse to call it social distancing as it is not social in any sense.

      The potential for a centrally controlled ‘One World Government’ based on money slavery is there. Psychopathic elites controlling all the wealth can decide who lives and dies.

    12. The damage to young minds cannot be easily assessed, but is brutal, beastly, and completely unnecessary. As regards the children remember Jesus’s words:


      ‘But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.’

The following website is a very useful resource for the damage caused by lockdowns and an analysis of what has been going on psychologically. A psy-op, a psychological operation with subliminal messages.

There is a book called ‘The phantom tollbooth’ by Norton Juster, who was of Jewish background. It is very good as it points out how rushing around leads to the world becoming more and more dirty and polluted until we do not see it any more.

This quote from chapter 10 is telling.

“No one paid any attention to how things looked, and as they moved faster and faster everything grew uglier and dirtier, and as everything grew uglier and dirtier they moved faster and faster, and at last a very strange thing began to happen. Because nobody cared, the city slowly began to disappear. Day by day the buildings grew fainter and fainter, and the streets faded away, until at last it was entirely invisible. There was nothing to see at all.”

As regards before lockdowns, people were disappearing too; children abducted and abused and/or murdered, the poor neglected, the poisons physical, mental and spiritual ignored.

So the thing is, in a strange way, good has come from evil, benefits from unnecessary lockdowns which were, bizarrely, necessary. But then many of us weren’t listening or observing what was going on. I include myself on certain aspects.

The one thing that stands out for me is that I had time at last to research broadly. To search out all the truth, tell others and put it all on my website.

Not even at university did I have that space as I was engaged in other matters such as my course work, exploring the beautiful countryside around Reading on my bicycle and reading my bible.

Of course I found truth with in it which I understood, despite my christening gift of a King James Bible with its old English words.

But above all I found Christ, Jesus Christ living in the lives of Christians around me, loving people, however imperfect it might have seemed at times.

So I found truth and love.

And as I will never tire of saying as He said ‘The truth will set you free’.

Free to love of course.

Breaking News: Second Lockdown

Author: alphaandomega21

Baldmichael Theresoluteprotector'sson. When not posting pages or paging posties, trying to be a good husband, and getting over a long term health issue, I am putting the world to rights. I have nothing better to do, so why not? But of course that includes dancing, being funny (in more than one sense), poking fun at life, poking fun at myself, deflating the pompous, reflating the sad. Seeking to heal the whole of the soul (and body where possible). In short making life as good as it possibly can be for others as well as myself. You can't say fairer than that. But if you can, please say. People need to know.

One thought on “Pros and Cons of Lockdowns”

  1. Very well explained… Totally agree with the pros and cons stated out here. Even the quote is so right, so in the face… I see it in our megacities like Mumbai and Bangalore , “the fading away…” Thanks for sharing the link on my post.
