The Wuhan virus is giving officials a pretense for locking everything down again.
People around the globe are already beyond fed up.
And one world leader gave a stern warning about coronavirus lockdowns.
Citizens across the world were told they needed to endure harsh lockdowns to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Trillions of dollars have been sapped from the world economy, millions are out of work, and countless businesses have been destroyed permanently.
The toll on quality of life has also been immeasurable.
Despite all the despair, world leaders have instituted another round of crushing lockdowns.
But Sanna Marin, the prime minister of Finland, warns that the lockdowns could trigger a backlash effect.
In an interview with The Financial Times, Marin says that onerous lockdowns “will cause protests more and more, and it’s a breeding ground for populist movements across Europe.”
In fact, the populist pushback has already begun. Several European countries are experiencing intense opposition against the lockdowns in the form of protests.
In America, several sheriffs in deep blue states like California and New York have announced they will not enforce the draconian lockdown orders such as curfews and restrictions on Thanksgiving gatherings.
But Marin’s concerns, however, aren’t from a perspective of valuing people’s freedom – but because she wants to see the populist movements tamped down.
“When you’re closing an economy and people’s workplaces, it will cause political instability. Populists come with easy answers to difficult problems, but their solutions are rarely the right ones…The situation will get even more difficult if we don’t implement a common strategy together…People often want to find someone to blame and often the easiest ones to blame are the governments and politicians.”
The globalist elites around the world are exasperated by the populist movements that have gained momentum within the last four years.
But the movements are a reaction to just how badly globalists have bungled critical issues.
For example, the nonsensical war in Syria led to the migrant crisis of 2015 that overwhelmed Europe. Countries are still struggling to assimilate the huge number of migrants absorbed into their populations.
Meanwhile, leaders continue to enjoy life while everyone else suffers.
Simple pleasures like getting a haircut have been denied to regular citizens, but the elites have skirted the rules.
And perhaps the most infuriating aspect of the lockdowns is that there’s no clear end in sight.
There have been no guidelines or timetables put in place.
Health experts now say COVID restrictions will remain in place even after vaccines are distributed.
On top of that, the experts are contradicting themselves left and right.
The World Health Organization said lockdowns should only be used as a last resort, but multiple countries are moving full speed ahead with even stricter lockdowns than before.
The bottom line is that herd immunity, along with a vaccine, is really the only way to stop the spread – short of a totalitarian lockdown like seen in China where some residents were welded inside their homes.
Thankfully western countries are not there…yet.
