Things are looking darker by the day.
People are being pushed over the edge.
The number of adults experiencing depression in England has doubled during the coronavirus pandemic, with young women, disabled people and those in the most deprived areas worst hit, new figures reveal.
Data published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows more than one in five (21 per cent) adults experienced some form of depression between January and March this year, compared with one in 10 observed before Covid-19 hit the UK in March 2020.
The figures expose the damaging impact the pandemic has had on the nation’s mental health, as people struggle to cope with sudden losses of income, as well as the restrictions on movement and social interaction.
Dr Marianne Trent, a clinical psychologist at Good Thinking Psychological Services, said the figures showed the “brutal psychological fallout” of the pandemic.
Just to be clear here: there is no such thing as something happening “because of the pandemic.” No one is sad because some secret group of old people somewhere has allegedly died. What affects people is what their governments do in the name of the alleged pandemic.
When the media claims something is happening “because of the pandemic,” it’s actually referring to the lockdowns, the masks, the collapse of the economy, the solitude, the uncertainty about the immediate future, and the insane government edicts.
Equating all of these insane oppressive, invasive, dehumanizing measures with a supposed virus is the greatest trick the media has ever pulled.
