Social isolation seems to be taking a toll. With most large, urban school districts planning remote-learning only this fall, the isolation is likely to continue for many children—unless parents step in to alleviate this loneliness.
An article in The Wall Street Journal exposed the impact of pandemic-related social isolation on children and adolescents: “‘Of all age groups, this virus is probably more socially devastating to teens than any other group. They are bored and they are lonely,’ says Joseph P. Allen, a professor of psychology at the University of Virginia.”
Another recent Journal article reinforced these unintended consequences of the lockdowns and social distancing on adolescents, and particularly girls: “Adolescent girls already were experiencing record-high levels of loneliness, anxiety and depression before the pandemic, according to Mary Pipher, a clinical psychologist and author of Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls… ‘All of the things that a year ago were increasing girls’ depression have been exacerbated by the pandemic,’ [said] Dr. Pipher.”Social Isolation Damages Kids
It is likely that lockdown isolation is leading directly to an increase in drug addiction, domestic abuse including incest, depression, suicides, and a rise in runaway teens who become prostitutes and drug addicts. Businesses that people have built over their lifetimes are shutting down — often permanently.
It is clearer every day that lockdowns do not control the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. In California, panic caused by lockdowns seems to be making the pandemic much worse.
The corrupt politicians and public health officials who are forcing these catastrophic policies down the throats of the public do not seem to care that they are doing tremendous harm, and no good. They seem to care only about having the power to abuse their authority.
In the US, the neo-tyrants used the economic downturn from the lockdowns to generate hundreds of thousands of fraudulent mail-in votes that were counted and tallied out of sight and without supervision, just in time to elect an illegitimate new federal administration in DC.
Why does the public tolerate this opportunistic tyranny on the part of all levels of government? It will only continue to get worse unless the people of the free world eventually learn to do what the people of Eastern Europe had to do to get rid of their Soviet and Communist overlords back in the late 1980s. Today’s deep state swamp creatures who dance to the puppet strings of the 1% are every bit as bad as those tyrannical overlords of the last century.
Time to drop out of Twitter, Facebook, Google, and the mainstream media, and learn to communicate for effective action by other means. It is time to match public ingenuity against high level tyranny.
Stay away from violence and intimidation — those tools which are so beloved by the left. But understand that these pretenders need your consent to do what they are trying to do. We must learn how to make it clear in no uncertain terms that they do not have that consent.
