Professor Warns Post-Corona Society is a “National Obedience Contest”

Says young people will suffer the most.

Norwegian psychology professor Charlotte Reedtz warns that our post-corona society has turned into a “national obedience contest” that will have a devastating effect on mental health for years to come.

Reedtz, a professor of psychology at the University of Tromsø, says that the adverse psychological impact of lockdowns have not been factored into any kind of cost/benefit analysis.

“The political landscape has changed to become a national obedience contest,” Reedtz told national broadcaster NRK. “We compete to have the strictest measures for the entire population in the whole country, as long as possible. And all this without having weighed the cost and effect of the measures you put in place against the costs and consequences.”

Reedtz went on to point out that the measures used to fight the pandemic will end up having a worse impact than the pandemic itself.

“We have a large increase in mental health problems, social and emotional problems, in a broad swath of children and adolescents. In many ways, we actually do much worse after all these measures,” she said.

Reedtz noted that young people will suffer the most.

“There is no doubt that it is children and young people who bear the brunt of infection control measures in Norway. And there are now many studies that show that both behavioural problems, concentration problems, loneliness, depression, and anxiety have increased greatly, both in younger and older age groups.”

The professor said that everyone had been “too obedient” and that they should “rebel a little.”

Norway has recorded only 640 COVID-19 deaths which is vastly fewer than many other European nations.

However, Oslo Municipality recently introduced new restrictions that saw schools shut down and people being banned from allowing more than two visitors into their homes.

As we highlighted last week, Stanford’s Dr. Jay Bhattacharya told Newsweek that COVID-19 lockdowns are “the single worst public health mistake in the last 100 years,” one of a number of experts to make that argument who have been largely shunned by governments.

All Confirmed Cases of Omicron in Europe Are People Who Are “Asymptomatic or With Mild Symptoms”

Dire warnings about new variant looking increasingly alarmist.

Out of the 44 confirmed cases of the Omicron variant discovered in Europe, all of them are “asymptomatic or people with mild symptoms,” according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

The ECDC released a statement earlier today declaring, “So far, no severe cases or deaths have been reported among these cases.”

Alarmists have attempted to cite South Africa’s relatively young population (average age 27) in an effort to dismiss findings by health chiefs that cases there have only been “mild.”

However, given that a similar pattern has now been observed on a different continent, that argument is losing credibility.

Despite concerns that the variant could be more harmful to the elderly, some have asserted that booster jabs need to be pushed for 18-year-olds, an argument that also makes no sense.

Numerous countries across the world have imposed new restrictions based on initial warnings that the new variant could be worse than delta, including in England where masks have been made compulsory in numerous public settings.

Dr Jenny Harries, the current head of NHS Test and Trace, also seized on the new variant to urge Brits to stop socialising over Christmas.

As we highlighted earlier, University of Oxford Professor Jim Naismith asserted that despite England dropping its mask mandate in July and Scotland keeping its rules in force, official data shows this “has made no meaningful difference” to infection rates.

“In both countries very high levels of prevalence have continued for months. Thus the new changes announced are unlikely to have much of an impact if Omicron does indeed spread rapidly,” he added.

Large UK Supermarket Chains Refuse to Police “Divisive” Face Mask Mandates

Focusing instead of ‘recovery of the high street’.

Two large supermarket chains in the UK have refused to make their staff police mandatory face mask rules, with one boss asserting that the issue is too “divisive.”

New face mask rules were imposed in England from today, meaning people who use public transport, enter shops and innumerable other venues have to wear a compulsory face covering.

England dropped mandatory face mask rules back in July, but they remained in place in neighboring countries like Scotland, where official data shows infection rates remained the same or higher.

According to Oxford Professor Jim Naismith, re-imposing face mask rules is “unlikely to have much of an impact” on the spread of the Omicron variant.

Wary of how contentious the issue has become, Iceland and Co-op, two large supermarket chains in the UK, have publicly said they will tell staff not to enforce such rules.

Richard Walker, managing director of Iceland, said the company would instead be concentrating its efforts on the “long-term recovering of the high street.”

“We fully support the reintroduction of compulsory face masks in shops, however, we won’t be asking our store colleagues to police it,” said Walker.

Co-op’s Paul Gerrard went further, telling GMB, “”What we won’t do is we won’t refuse to serve people who aren’t wearing a mask and we won’t refuse entry to the shop to people who aren’t wearing a mask.”

“I won’t be asking my store colleagues to police those who refuse to adhere to the rules because I know that, bizarrely, this is a divisive issue, and I think my store colleagues have got enough to deal with in the run-up to Christmas,” he added.

The British Retail Consortium said that it was the responsibility of the police to enforce the rules, adding: “Customers are asked to respect the rules and be considerate to their fellow shoppers and to hard-working shop staff.”

Unvaccinated Austrians Face Prison Time, Huge Fines For Non-Compliance

Booster jabs would also be mandatory.

Austrians who refuse to take a mandatory COVID-19 vaccine before a government imposed deadline face prison sentences and huge compounding fines for non-compliance.

After initially placing the unvaccinated under lockdown, a policy that completely failed, Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg announced that the jab would become compulsory from February 1.

Questions as to what would happen to those who still refused to take it have now been answered in the form of a draft that was leaked to the media.

“Under the bill, anyone who refused to attend a scheduled vaccination appointment would receive an official summons from local authorities. If an individual failed to show up, they would then be summoned one more time within the next four weeks,” reports RT.

“Should the second official request be ignored as well, the person would face a fine of €3,600 ($4,061) or four weeks in prison. The fine would increase to €7,200 ($8,000) for those who had already been fined twice for violating the vaccination requirement.”

No one will be “forcibly brought” to a vaccination center to get jabbed against their will, although rest assured, they will be “forcibly” placed behind bars if they continue to refuse.

If it passes, the legislation will stay in place for three years, with the government deciding if having recovered from COVID is a reasonable exemption.

Only pregnant women and children under the age of 12, in addition to those who face “a danger to life or health” by getting the vaccine, will be exempt.

The bill will also make regular booster shots compulsory.

With tens of thousands of protesters taking to the streets of Vienna in recent weeks, expect unrest to grow.

As we previously highlighted, former World Health Organization director Anthony Costello warned that making COVID-19 vaccines mandatory could cause “riots” across Europe.
