Why is the media so fixated on Sweden’s coronavirus policy? What difference does it make?

As the COVID – 19 pandemic rolls on with the mathematical modellers, the masked snivellers and the vax maniacs still unable to offer any logical prognosis of why measures taken have not worked as well as was hoped (or in some cases not at all,) we need to look at the news from Sweden. Not long ago, when the government of Sweden decided on a limited lockdown in order to protect people in the groups most vulnerable to the virus, while preserving the national economy and the jobs of the majority, establishment pundits and mainstream media scaremongers were falling over each other in the rush to tell Sweden it was totally irresponsible ot to completely lockdown the entire population, that COVID – 19 was far worse than anyone understood and that “you watch, if you don’t do what the globalists at the United Nations and the WHO tell you karma will come and bite you on the arse.
What Sweden had done to upset the scaremonger was to settle on a policy that they believed was both sustainable and would save many lives as possible, based on the knowledge that COVID – 19 posed very little risk to people under 50 who had no pre – existing health problems. They weren’t putting profit before people as lefties in Europe and the USA claimed, nor were they trying to discredit “The Science” as The Church Of Scienceology Cult claimed, or to deny the vaccine manufacturers an opportunity to make vast profits as the free markets right said. They simply took a more traditionalist approach to dealing with a strain on seasonal ‘flu that actually had a lower kill rate than most previously known strains, and that when the numbers are analysed did not, in the UK at least, meet the criteria for being declared an epidemic. The Swedish government hoped that by avoiding a full-scale lockdown they would avoid the very deep economic recession that would inevitably follow.
The problem that gave the UN and WHO wankers , and academics who earn big fat fees for promoting globalist policies was that they refused to follow the herd. As punishment for breaking ranks Sweden had to be punished economically and pilloried in the media. They refused to do what suited the interests of globalism. They refused to adopt a policy that the power and money elites universally support, they ignored the propaganda designed to generate fear and panic at such levels it would reduce about half of the populations in the developed nations to a state of snivelling submission.
The Swedish model is a threat to the elite’s agenda that approach because it allowed people to retain personal freedom even in the midst of a global pandemic, to decide for themselves whether it was necessary to wear masks outdoors (it isn’t – even the WHO had admitted there is very little chance of the infection being passed on while we are outdoors, of developing OCD about hand washing and bleaching all surfaces, and of isolating ourselves to avoid low risk contact with friends and family.
Ruling class elites don’t want that, that is not in their interests. The whole agenda behind the pandemic rests on isolating us in order that the information we have access to can be strictly controlled. To implement their global governance plan, people have to meekly accept the rules and conditions imposed for their own good that can only lead to their eventual enslavement. That’s the real objective, the end of even the pretence of democracy, complete dominance by an authoritarian, centralised government whose members are appointees from corporate business, the political establishment and the academic world. Saving lives has nothing to do with it, controlling the minutiae of our lives is what it’s all about. Sweden opposed that approach which is why Sweden has to be destroyed.
None of this is any connection with Sweden’s fatality rate, which is higher than some and lower than others. (Sweden has 543 deaths per million, which means roughly 1 death in every 2,000 people.) But like every other country, the vast majority of Swedish fatalities are among people 70 years and older with underlying health conditions. (“90% of the country’s deaths have been among those over 70.”)
In spite of the widespread and vitriolic criticism of its strategy, and one of the highest fatalitity rates per head in the world – only 70 people under 49 years old have died of Covid-19, out of 5,482 total virus deaths (1.3%) so far. For context, average annual deaths in Sweden over the last 5 years for under-49-year-olds have been 3,417. ]
Most of the criticism of Sweden’s handling of the pandemic, and the harshest attacks have focused on the fact that the government failed to protect the old, frail and chronically ill and they’ve admitted they failed. But are those criticisms fair? The failure to temporarily protect the most vulnerable does not imply that the policy was wrong. Nobody knew the pandemic was coming, (in spite of what Bill Gates might try to claim; “the next pandemic” he warned of in hos notorious ED talk back in 2014 was in fact a pandemic of ebola, although the pandemic he claimed the world had just experienced was a localised outbreak on the disease in West Africa,) and as medical science can now keep people alive almost indefinitely, the ultimate cost of being prepared for every possible eventuality and of preserving the lives of people who cannot survive without constant and intense medical support is not sustainable.
Would there have been any logic in throwing unlimited resources at prolonging the lives of Sweden’s old and chronically sick for a few months? On the contrary, that course of action, in nations that adopted it, has not only caused economic chaos, but has hastened the deaths of people whose treatment for various cancers, heart disease, diabetes and many other problems.Initial estimates for the UK are put at 35,000 premature, non COVID deaths by the end of the year.
Sweden adopted a sustainable policy that kept the economy in working order, protected small businesses, preserved an atmosphere of normality instead of imposing unbearable stresses on millions of people, maintained education for its children and preserved the jobs and living standards of middle and working class families. That policy may have exposed its young, low-risk people to the infection, (thus, moving the population closer to the Holy Grail of “herd immunity”) but at least it was led by logic rather than sentimentality.
Coronavirus: Fear and Panic and a Globalist Power Grab
World Leaders Insist ‘Economic Lockdowns Ravage the Very Fabric of Societies’
An impressive array of more than 500 prominent world leaders, academics, and Nobel Laureates have written “A Call to Defend Democracy” in the face of a worldwide rise in government authoritarianism during the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. The June 25 text declares that beyond health concerns the COVID-19 pandemic is “a political crisis that threatens the future of liberal democracy.”
Oxford Covid Vaccine Fails But Big Pharma Will Sell It Anyway
Many highly – placed members of the lockdown forever cult, Bill Gates among them, have been spreading the idea that lockdown must continue until a vaccine for COVID – 19 is available because only a vaccine can save us. More level headed types (i.e. those of us routinely dismissed as conspiracy theorists, have warned that as the virus affects the upper respiratory tract and nasal passages, where there can be no antibody response it is unlikely there will ever be an effective vaccine …
Greenteeth and Daily Stirrer posts on Coronavirus. Is it a real, existential threat to humanity, is it an exercise in generating fear and panic in response to the nationalist pushback against globalism, or is it a deep state power grab. We don’t know, but we will report and examine aspects of the story mainstream media will not inform you of.
The Coronavirus Response Is The Biggest Assault On Freedom Since World War 2
Things have gone so far beyond what can be considered a rational response to an outbreak of a highly contagious but for most people relatively minor illness that I am starting to believe even the conspiracy theories I know I made up myself. Boggart Bloggers predicted weeks ago the current outbreak of coronavirus would see a massive hyping of the threat level leading up to an assault on our freedoms …
Scientist who convinced Boris lockdown was the only way to beat coronavirus criticised many times for flawed research
The scientist whose mathematical models of how the coronavirus would spread in the UK and the wildly exaggerated estimates of how many deaths might result from the epidemic reportedly led to the decision to implement a countrywide lockdown and trash the economy has been criticised in the past for flawed research.
Has The World Health Organisation Been Helping Chinese Coronavirus Cover Up
Many people suspected as far back as January, when stories about an epidemic of a new virus began to leak out of China that we were not and would not be told the whole story. The virus infecting thousands of Chinese in the large inland city of Wuhan was, we learned, a strain of corona virus, the genre that infects us with the common cold, influenza and a host of other infections of varying seriousness.
Coronavirus deaths: Are The Authorities Deceiving Us?Yesterday we reported that a Canadian outfit had carried out an analysis of China’s response to Coronavirus and concluded that while politicians and academics (aka “scientists” or “experts”) are heaping praise on the way the regime in Beijing has contained and controlled its epidemic, the Chinese have actually been lying, the epidemc is still raging and numbers of infections and deaths from COVID – 19 are far higher than reported,
Is This The Smoking Gun That Proves China Has Lied About The Coronavirus Outbreak
With the number of confirmed cases of, and deaths from coronavirus in Italy, a nation of 63 million people having now surpassed the number of infections officially admitted by the government of China, a nation of 1.4 billion and the nation where the news strain of coronavirus, COVID – 19 was first observed, it was obvious to the realists among us that the Chinese government’s claims to have contained the virus were deeply suspect and further claims that the outbreak were under control were as reliable as reported sightings of The Tooth Fairy …
As We Predicted The Coronavirus bill Is The Biggest Assault On Freedom Since World War 2
Things have gone so far beyond what can be considered a rational response to an outbreak of a highly contagious but for most people relatively minor illness that I am starting to believe even the conspiracy theories I know I made up myself. Along with my fellow Boggart Bloggers I predicted weeks ago the current outbreak of the so – called coronavirus would see a massive hyping of the threat level leading up to an assault on our freedoms. And that is exactly what we have seen happening over the past week.
Germany’s Official State TV Channel Cheers Coronavirus For Killing Old People
Trawling around the weirder fringes of the web, as we bloggers and cyberjournalists are sometimes obliged to if we want to bring you the news the mainstream will not report, one occasionally comes across something important but disturbing – like being brought face – to – face with how sick and warped the far left ecopsychos really are. Take a sketch recently broadcast as part of a satirical show the title of which translates as Bohemian Browser Ballet, shown by German state broadcaster ARD.
UK To Ask Citizens Over 70 To Self – Isolatate For 4 MONTHS As Coronavirus Fails To Kill Zillions
UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock today confirmed the government plans to ask people aged over 70 to isolate themselves for up to four months amid a coronavirus pandemic. The goal is to protect them.
It’s quite obvious to us, experienced bloggers that we are, that the government, civil service, law encorgement and national security agencies and all the assorted experts and talking heads have forgotten the lesson our generation learned from The Hitch Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy …
Coronavirus: EU States Rebel Against Brussels As Van Leyen Demands Borders Stay Open
The cracks in European solidarity are growing deeper by the day as the coronavirus crisis threatens to split the bloc. The response of European leaders has varied from panic, as several member-states have takeen unilateral action including severe border closures, to a laissez – fair attidude, notably from France’s idiot president Emmanuel Macron who favours total inaction, having said complacently that viruses don’t recognise borders.
US John Hopkins University Prof Says Don’t Believe Corona Virus Numbers
The number of confirmed cases outside of China roughly tripled once again this week, and if this outbreak continues to escalate at this pace there will be more than a million confirmed cases in less than a month. But as bad as the official numbers are, the truth is that there are a whole lot more people walking around out there that have caught the virus but have not been tested.
Is the World Health Organization involved in biological warfare research?
Dr. Francis Boyle, a professor of international law, talked in a recent interview with about the Wuhan coronavirus now sweeping through the far east, laboratory in Wuhan, China, where the genetically modified virus appears to have originated, and the World Health Organization’s (WHO) clandestine involvement in biological warfare research …Continue reading
Coronavirus Contains “HIV Insertions”: Claim Stokes Fears Over Genetically Modified BioweaponFor the past two weeks mainstream media reporting of the epidemic of a new strain of coronavirus in China has been getting more and more hysterical. However, reports have pushed back against one “conspiracy theory” about the origins of the virus that has now infected as many as 70,000+ people in the central China city of Wuhan alone (depending on whom you believe).
Corona Virus: Should We Worry
The official data coming out of China and from other sources including the World Health Organisation (WHO) on the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus continues to suggest an exponential growth rate. With more and more infectious disease experts are now openly calling the virus a full-blown global pandemic, many people are asking should we in the west be worried and how bad might things get?
Coronavirus Contains “HIV Insertions”: Claim Stokes Fears Over Genetically Modified Bioweapon
The theory that China obtained the coronavirus via a Canadian research program, and started molding it into a bioweapon at the Institute of Virology in Wuhan before it somehow escaped could be an attempt by the establishment (the Davosocracy,) to spread fear and panic as they see resurgent nationalism across the developed world and growing scepticism about
