It is now May and weather is getting warmer by the day. The birds are out early in the morning. Hares are running around. Our cat are catching mice and chasing chipmunks.
The garlic we planted last fall have sprouted strong, sending green shoots taller every day. My children planted some peas last week and they too, have sprouted. Yet we are still under “lockdown” here in Ontario.
For the past few weeks, I have been enjoying working from home every day. What a blessing to stay home with the family and avoid the traffic and time otherwise wasted on driving. Selfishly I wish I can work from home forever, yet, I also know that during this unprecedented time many have lost their businesses and jobs.
For many families the lock down is more a struggle than blessing. Domestic abuse against women and children has risen dramatically. Suicide rate has gone up. Protests and civil disobedience against government “shelter-in-home” policy increase by the day. Not to mention the more “obscure” prevalence of fear, boredom, disappointment, loneliness and depression felt by many.
Now, looking at the worldwide data provided by officials, the mortality rate of COVID-19 is not much higher than a seasonal flu. Although it looks like it is contagious, yet I have read that current COVID-19 test is not accurate and could be misleading: Was the COVID-19 Test Meant to Detect a Virus?
COVID-19 is nowhere close to the Black Plague or the Spanish Flu, in my opinion. You can find actual footage on Twitter and Youtube where people have visited ER of hospitals in some “hot spots” area and found that they are empty! I am not discounting the fact that there is a SARs-like flu, but the kill rate does not justify the stringent and draconian measures the government is imposing.
Yet, global economies, and subsequently the livelihood of millions have been shattered in just a few weeks. 30 millions of Americans have filed for unemployment benefit. I truly wonder, if there is an agenda, a conspiracy, to destroy the current financial system in order to usher in the final global one world government.
Where is personal freedom, liberty and privacy? They are all thrown out the window when the government declares a state of “emergency”. You don’t even have 48 hours to prepare for the lock down. (Again, I strive the importance of being prepared).
Can government just shut down your business without compensation? Can government simply confine you in your own home, essentially a house arrest, for weeks? Sure, the officials claim that all the measures are for your “protection” and the “greater good”.
I don’t believe for one second that at the highest of power, the elites care about us. The government cares about its own survival and extend of power. I vividly remember that in February our health officials repeatedly stressed that the chance of being infected was low and they had enough PPE on hand.
Shortly after that in March, the infection rate became high, most places had to be shut down and they don’t have enough PPE. We were then educated by the government what is “essential” and “non-essential”. That is absurd. For a small business owner, his/her business IS ESSENTIAL. For an employee, his/her job IS ESSENTIAL. For a student, his/her education IS ESSENTIAL.
Although I am not a fan of Greta Thunberg, I would also like to shout to the elites: “How dare you?”
One can easily see that the elites are not wasting time to make use of the “pandemic” crisis to enforce martial law and surveillance. Interesting read: Did Bill Gates Just Reveal The Real Reason Behind The Lock-Downs?
The fact of the matter is your immune system is what keeps you healthy. Not the vaccines or drugs the government is trying to push down your throat. Take control of your health and trust Jesus Christ.
(Luke 21:28) And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
