A form of gaslight to invaludate your need to reverse an abnormal situation. It's to prevent you to fight to get your freedom back.
The covid 19 restrictions on your breathing, freedom to go out, see your loved ones, work, choose medical interventions freely... Are not temporary to flatter the curve. This is the new normal. Give up your human rights, body autonomy, and children. Accept segregation with the vaccine passport (it's not racist this time, but for profits, so it's ok.)

The government are dictators now, it's for your own good because you're too stupid to do self care and must be blamed for everything, welcome to the new world order.

Obey or die.

Covid is of the common cold family virus, with 99% chances of survival. But feel terror and obey us. Don't take cold medicine or grandma's bone broth soup, take the vaccine and if it doesn't work let yourself die so we can scare people into obedience with manipulated statistics and alarmust predictions, and asymptomatic cases.

This abnormal painful torture isn't going back to the abusive dark ages, this is the new normal. Accept it without fighting back for freedom.
