Scientists who were implemental in spreading Covid hysteria around the globe –nearly as fast as the SARS-CoV-2 virus itself – have now come forward to express regret over furthering a ‘totalitarian’ agenda.
The members of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour, a group of British scientists, confessed that public health authorities are pursuing an agenda to control populations with fear.
“Scientists on a committee that encouraged the use of fear to control people’s behaviour during the Covid pandemic have admitted its work was ‘unethical’ and ‘totalitarian’,” the Telegraph reported.
“Members of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour (SPI-B) expressed regret about the tactics in a new book about the role of psychology in the Government’s Covid-19 response,” the report noted.
SPI-B warned in March last year that ministers needed to increase “the perceived level of personal threat” from Covid-19 because “a substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened.”
Gavin Morgan, a psychologist on the SPI-B team, revealed the political agenda.
“Clearly, using fear as a means of control is not ethical. Using fear smacks of totalitarianism. It’s not an ethical stance for any modern government. By nature I am an optimistic person, but all this has given me a more pessimistic view of people,” Morgan said.
Another scientist said the Covid pandemic response has been “dystopian.”
“In March  the Government was very worried about compliance and they thought people wouldn’t want to be locked down,” another scientist said. “There were discussions about fear being needed to encourage compliance, and decisions were made about how to ramp up the fear. The way we have used fear is dystopian.”
“The use of fear has definitely been ethically questionable,” the scientist continued. “It’s been like a weird experiment. Ultimately, it backfired because people became too scared.”
Another SPI-B member added: “You could call psychology ‘mind control’. That’s what we do… clearly we try and go about it in a positive way, but it has been used nefariously in the past.”
One scientist warned that “people use the pandemic to grab power and drive through things that wouldn’t happen otherwise… We have to be very careful about the authoritarianism that is creeping in.”
“Without a vaccine, psychology is your main weapon… Psychology has had a really good epidemic, actually,” another scientist said.
The Covid pandemic response very much resembles the climate change agenda if applied for biomedical purposes. It is much more devastating to populations psychologically, however, as health is a much more personal issue and the resulting fear is much more appreciable.
In 2020, the Annual State of Mental Health in America showed that anxiety and depression nationwide hit an all-time high, and was hitting ‘young people the hardest.’ Nations around the world are conducting psychological warfare against the own populations to further their ‘totalitarian’ agenda. It is beginning to have devastating effects.
