from 21st Century Wire:
Was the ‘Lockdown’ justified? On what basis were such risky policy decisions taken? New data seems to suggest that not only was it not justified, but Lockdown policies appear to be driving-up casualty numbers. While the US and its allies attempt to blame China for the coronavirus and all of the economic damage suffered from the West’s lockdown policies, incredibly, the US, UK, Spain and others seem to be emulating all of China’s grandiose and authoritarian reactions and measures to ‘tackle the pandemic’. Also, the UK government has tasked the British Army’s online troll division, Brigade 77, to try and ‘influence’ the public conversation on social media back in favour of Central Government. Again, the Western powers continue to copy China’s model of state-sponsored censorship.
