Lord Sumption

It seems that people are beginning to see that coronavirus is literally just the flu, and they’re starting to question the disproportionate way in which governments and the media have responded to it.

Daily Mail:

Former Supreme Court Justice Jonathon Sumption believes that the public’s ‘irrational horror of death’ has lead to unnecessarily ‘costly’ measures surrounding coronavirus.

Writing in The Sunday Times Lord Sumption, 71, a former judge turned author and medieval historian, stated that the strict governmental measures will bring ‘even greater misfortunes of a different kind’.

He wrote: ‘We have acquired an irrational horror of death. Today death is the great obscenity, inevitable but somehow unnatural. In the midst of life, our ancestors lived with death, an everpresent fact that they understood and accommodated.’

Lord Sumption went on to list a number of historic epidemics such as Bubonic plague, smallpox, cholera, typhoid, meningitis and Spanish flu, reminding people that such outbreaks with higher mortality rates were met with less ‘hysteria‘.

Adding: ‘Fear is dangerous. It is the enemy of reason. It suppresses balance and judgment. And it is infectious. (…) Is the coronavirus the latest and most damaging example?’

He stated that earlier generations would struggle to understand the current hysteria over Covid-19, due to it having ‘milder symptoms’ than previous outbreaks.

The former judge believes it is the public’s ‘risk-adverse’ attitude which has lead us to not accept ‘the wheel of fortune’.

Lord Sumption said current government measures are inflicting suffering on other less obvious victims of the coronavirus, such as future generations who will be left to deal with ‘high levels of public and private debt’ and the one fifth of businesses being pushed into bankruptcy.
It’s not just future generations who will be left to struggle.

People are already losing their jobs and the economy is collapsing. This is going to restructure society right now. The power balance of the world is shifting.

From the looks of it, this will either turn into a post-apocalyptic movie-like scenario…

Or a dystopian novel scenario with a totalitarian police state using mass surveillance under the pretense of “saving lives” to control the population.

Perhaps we’ll even see both, one after the other.

He believes it is fear which has prevented governments and the public from thinking about ‘remote costs’ of the measures brought in to avoid tragic coronavirus deaths, and adds that we do not know enough about the Covid-19 mortality rate, which he hints is lower than stated due to limited testing.

Making the comparison to cars, which he calls ‘the most lethal weapons ever devised’, as they kill and injure thousands every year, he states that society has accepted that fact as a ‘Faustian bargin’ in order to drive in comfort – suggesting we may have to take the same approach to coronavirus.
I like his suggestion.

He sounds like a pragmatic man.

Too bad that he’s not in charge of the coronavirus response instead of lunatic cultists.

Apart from not being allowed to purchase liquor, cigarettes or vape supplies, I see in S Africa that the gardening section in supermarkets is cordoned off.
"People in solitary confinement must suffer Goyim. Otherwise they won't willingly submit to our fiend Bill Gates' vaccine."
It is possible that we will be forced to stay in quarantine until we agree to take the vaccine.
The Psychopath Bill Gates is already alluding to this.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
