What more evidence do we need?
Maybe that isn’t the question. I fear we are beyond evidence. There is voluminous evidence that Sweden was right and lockdowns were wrong. In fact, I argue even Sweden did too much by disrupting some education and recommending masks at peak times on public transport.
I think if you supported lockdowns, you are not in a place where you cannot possibly concede how awful these things are. Or how little evidence there has even been to suggest they are acceptable.
You’d have to concede you were duped. It is hard enough conceding that the answer you pushed for a pub quiz was wrong. Imagine admitting you ignored quality scientific evidence; supported the deadly and destructive tyrannisation of the world. And worse.
Is the only way to change minds a psy op of dimensions more potent than the lockdown one? Is there one less ethically unpalatable?
