One of the easier targets for social demolition by western authoritarians and bureaucracies has been schools.
Aided and abetted by a hysterical mainstream media permanently geared towards maintaining a constant level of public fear, politicians have been able to deceive worried parents and teachers who may genuinely believe that COVID19 poses some sort of overall health threat to children (which it does not), as well as the widely-held canard that asymptomatic children are somehow ‘spreading the virus’ to other adults, the old and vulnerable.
Numerous scientific studies have clearly shown how this is not the case. But by sustaining these widely held myths, governments have been able to successfully level primary and secondary education across the western hemisphere and retard the educational and social development of hundreds of millions of young people in the process.
It is yet unclear why governments have been so keen to do this, but it’s not at all surprising that the populace has gone along with the theatre, especially after being primed by decades of ‘health and safety’ culture and corporatisation of public policy.
It’s crucial to note: all of these findings literally destroy the argument for panic-driven policies like mass testing and mass vaccinations.
After many months of sitting idle on the matter, some institutions, like UNICEF are now speak up.

Data from 191 countries shows no consistent link between reopening schools and increased rates of coronavirus infection, UNICEF reported in an analysis Thursday.
In releasing its first comprehensive assessment of the pandemic’s effects on children, the United Nations agency said “there is strong evidence that, with basic safety measures in place, the net benefits of keeping schools open outweigh the costs of closing them.”
“Schools are not a main driver of community transmission, and children are more likely to get the virus outside of school settings,” UNICEF said.
The numbers: As of November, 572 million students — about 33 percent of all students — are being affected by 30 nationwide school closures, the report found.
