Things I've Learned About Humanity During The 'Pandemic'

1/ Most people would rather be in the majority, than be right.

2/ At least 20% of the population has strong authoritarian tendencies, which will emerge under the right conditions.

3/ Fear of death is only rivaled by the fear of social disapproval. The latter is stronger.

4/ Propaganda is just as effective in the modern day as it was 100 years ago.

5/ Anything and everything can and will be politicised by the media, government, and those who trust them.

6/ Many politicians and large corporations will gladly sacrifice human lives if it is conducive to their political and financial aspirations.

7/ Most people believe the government acts in the best interests of the people.

8/ Once they have made up their mind, most people would rather to commit to being wrong, than admit they were wrong.

9/ Humans can be trained and conditioned quickly and relatively easily to significantly alter their behaviours.

10/ When sufficiently frightened, most people will not only accept authoritarianism, but demand it.

11/ People who are dismissed as 'conspiracy theorists' are often well researched and simply ahead of the mainstream narrative.

12/ Most people value safety and security more than freedom and liberty.

13/ Hedonic adaptation occurs in both directions, and once inertia sets in, it is difficult to get people back to 'normal'.

14/ A significant % of people thoroughly enjoy being subjugated.

15/ 'The Science' has evolved into a secular pseudo-religion for millions of people in the West.

16/ Most people care more about looking like they are doing the right thing, rather than actually doing the right thing.

17/ Politics, the media, science, and the healthcare industries are all corrupt, to varying degrees.

18/ You can keep millions docile as you strip their rights, by giving them money, food, and entertainment.

19/ Modern people are overly complacent and lack vigilance when it comes to defending their own freedoms from government overreach.

20/ It's easier to fool a person than to convince them that they have been fooled.

I read it some time ago. It is a perfect summary of the times we are living in. Number 2 is too optimistic, it is more than 20%.
[@16207,Cierzo] but those additional numbers just get the scraps off the 20% the rest of the population just get the crumbs.
[@16207,Cierzo] oh and long time no see bro. How are ya?
The solution is to stop accepting attacks on our freedoms and start to voice our real opinions about the damage that’s being done to our society. Stop succumbing to fear and stop worrying that people won’t agree. We need to hear different perspectives and views. Until people stop putting up with it, it will just go from bad to worse as we’ve seen over the past 16 months.
You forgot:
That people in fear will allow rights to be taken away for 'safety' and then be ok with having them given back with a 'price tag' and shiny badge of certification.

Those that want their rights back freely are seen as rebels and criminals against society, and are punished and isolated .
