“Since the onset of the covid-19 pandemic, governments around the world, along with a handful of unelected medical experts, have been behaving as though they are the social engineers of totalitarian regimes (e.g., fascism, Nazism, and communism). To be more precise, this select group of political leaders and medical experts have upended economies, as well as the lives of billions of ordinary people, by implementing extremely coercive and restrictive lockdowns and physical distancing measures for the stated purpose of bringing the pandemic under control and preventing future outbreaks.”
Throughout the course of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, political leaders and medical experts have implemented restrictive lockdowns, upending nations’ economies and people’s lives. While these have been implemented in the name of keeping people safe from the virus, they hay have also made people more susceptible to totalitarian social engineering.
This is according to an op-ed by conservative commentator Birsen Filip, published by the nonprofit think tank, the Mises Institute.
