The Price of Fear

Op-Ed piece.

By Maia Regler (via Facebook)

It has been at the forefront of every person’s minds, it’s everywhere, you can’t escape it, it’s there from the moment they wake. The daily onslaught of updated information and restrictions on this ever developing situation.

I’ve seen family tearing one another to shreds, suspicion, mistrust, accusations, and ugliness.

People panic buying, leaving nothing for anyone else, an every man for himself mentality, distrust, social distancing, every one is viewed with an eye of suspicion as a possible source of contagion.

Never have I witnessed such division, fear, hysteria or panic. And as a result we have woken up to a new world. [order?]

2 million people are out of work in Australia.

Some families can no longer afford to put a roof over their children’s heads. Who knows how they are going to be able to feed them.

People screamed for the Government to lock us down. Lock us in. Close borders. Keep me safe.

Our children are the new fleas of the new plague. Keep them away from us.

Protect me…

But those people failed to see the full scope of what that would entail.

We went from a Virus with a 2-3% overall Mortality rate to a now Global Economic Pandemic.

People will be bankrupted by this. Businesses that once thrived will never come back.

Instead of using hindsight and foresight, we have succumbed to a hive mentality.

Where our Ancestors once fought for freedom. We gladly gave it away. Take it. We don’t want it. Do whatever you want.

Here is my freedom. Here is my family. Here is my home. Here is my financial stability. Here is my medical freedom. Take it all, Government. I’m sure you have our best interests at heart. I’m sure you’re only thinking about us as you close the borders and bankrupt entire industries that this Nation relies upon.

How did this happen? How did we become so complacent and compromised in our ability to think rationally and logically?

You still think this is about a virus and protecting the most vulnerable? Wake up people. This is about control.

‘Oh I’m not into conspiracy theories’


The real conspiracy theory is the one happening on your TVs with the media driving a fear and hysteria narrative that has made one thing very clear and apparent.

They own you. You bought it hook, line & sinker.

Fear is a great motivator, but a terrible Master.

    Very well said, and so true! It’s frightening how willingly people fell into this trap, and every time I’ve tried to say to someone that it’s all a beat up, I’m looked at like I’m from another planet. Clearly people have forgotten the lessons in Orwell’s 1984 – except for those behind this insanity, who seem to have succeeded in applying it worldwide.

    There are a few courageous doctors speaking out – perhaps many more that we haven’t come across yet – but none of this is reported by health authorities or the mainstream media:

    Agree completely with this. A fear pandemic is running rampant throughout the world including Australia. A large percentage of the Australian citizens do not or cannot see beyond what they are told by a Government that does not care about its people and have not done for some time now. How is locking people up inside their homes going to help? No sunshine, no Vitamin D, limited access to vitamins, especially Vit C which was out of stock at my local warehouse, upping the cost of fruit/vegs, closing farmers markets – all of these help the immune system. To fight any kind of illness. Now they say they want the Government to do more to lock us down, bring in the military, public shame people who dont comply – complete and utter madness!!

      Yes, I’ve been saying to my husband that locking sick people up and not letting them into the fresh air and sunshine will ensure they don’t recover well. And now people coming from overseas will have to stay in hotel rooms – so even if they aren’t sick, their immunity will suffer from being cooped up and not getting their natural Vit D, plus probably having to eat food that isn’t very nutritious – so once they’re released they’re likely to catch every virus that’s floating around. Also been unable to get my preferred natural Vit C, and my daughter wanted Vit D drops for her son who has tonsilitis, and couldn’t get them either.
