I live on a small island of 100,000 people. Here the politicians are ‘real’ people but those in power seem to get their major orders from elsewhere. Today, 24/3/20, they are debating to put the whole island on lockdown.
I decided to run an experiment and write to all the local members of the parliament and see what responses I get. I will post any responses I get as they come in.
I know some members personally and didn’t write to them. No real names will be used.
Here is my original email date 24/3/20.
As of 19 March 2019 the UK government announced that “COVID-19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious diseases (HCID) in the UK.”
One of the reasons is that “more information is available about mortality rates (low overall)”
So it seems we have been subjected to weeks of untold fear programming from the States and the gutter rag known as the JEP. We are on the verge of being placed under house arrest and being plunged into a depression.
Death is a part of life. We accept every day this fact. The economy is part of life. We would all die if it didn’t run. We accept road deaths are a by-product of the economy. The economy is no more evil then ants building a nest.
Not only are the draconian actions of the government an oppressive act against supposedly liberated people, but they are going to cause more pain, suffering and indeed indirect deaths than the low mortality rate virus.
If this happened every year we would simply accept it. Even now the island is not like the fake world of the JEP. I can barely think of anyone I have met in reality who thinks like the JEP propaganda and wants to be placed under house arrest.
No one will count the deaths but it is obvious that a global recession will lead to increased mortality rates and it seems like the States members are ready to play their part. Please do not complain about having to make tough decisions. You shouldn’t have stood for election.
If the government enforces house arrest, euphemistically called self-isolation, on the whole island, irrespective of symptoms, then it is an oppressive government. If you vote or have voted for this then you are part of this.
John Hopkins University did a study where they found that the third leading cause of death in the USA is medical practice. https://hub.jhu.edu/2016/05/03/medical-errors-third-leading-cause-of-death/
On the thinking of our government, they should close all the hospitals permanently. But no because sane people can understand things with some nuance.
Clearly a mind virus has overtaken the government and it is far more harmful than the biological one.
As I write this we have zero deaths. When the long term effects of the disastrous effects of our wondrous leaders are seen, please remember that you subjected us to a cure worse than the disease.email 24/3/20
It is for this exact reason that I never vote. Not because you haven’t redrawn the maps in the way I like, but because I have no desire to be a part of your cult.
Thank you for the information. May I suggest you copy-in the Italian government which, somehow, still seem to think Covid 19 is a serious problem?
Yours sincerely, Member1
To which I replied: Thanks for your sarcastic email. The use of ‘somehow’ was particularly unappealing. I notice that you didn’t address any of my concerns.
It is one more reminder of why I have nothing to do with your cult, which is what the States of Jersey is.First response from Member1
Thank you for your email. If we were to simply let Covid-19 run its course without any intervention, then the likelihood is there could be up to 2,000 deaths this year. You may find this acceptable I don’t.Second response from Member2
To which I replied: Thank you for the succinct reply which unfortunately reminded me more of a parrot then anything else. Time will show the long term outcomes of what is being put in place.
If you are honest with yourself you really don’t know any of the things that you are stating as a fact e.g. 2000 people. The experts that told you this don’t know this either. It is parrots all the way up.
I’m sure you are aware that the end of freedom has always been pushed by fear.
As was true in H.L. Mencken’s day.
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”― H.L. Mencken,
Look back at your mind over the past few decades and try to notice what has happened and the fear that has been pushed to do so. The neverending hobgoblins and the end of freedom.
Freedom is not defined by voting on things, but the breadth of things that we do not vote on. Every vote that you have is one tiny prick in the dying corpse of a free people.
As most of the population is aware, the States Members don’t know anything. You all are just pushing whatever legislation that you are told to do so by your own masters. The legislation appears from somewhere, you all true believers and you vote on it.
I don’t blame you for this. But try to be aware of what you are a part of.
Hence, to repeat, I do not vote as I do not want to give legitimacy to your organization. I comply with your laws as I don’t wish to be put in a cage. I don’t force anyone to do anything. I don’t lock people up in their houses under threat. So why do you do it to me?
How does someone else ticking a box give you this right over me? What made you so special?
Consider these things.Response to Member2
