So that we do not forget what has been done to the future, quite apart from the senseless billions of debts. To articles by Justin Hart and Scott Atlas.
The policies and zeitgeist surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic have had serious consequences for children. Lockdowns and other restrictions due to the pandemic have taken a heavy toll on teens, with disruptions to education and socialisation leading to increased anxiety and a deterioration in mental health. The pandemic has also led to a global increase in child labour, and an estimated 228,000 children in South Asia have died due to supply chain deficiencies. This has exacerbated existing inequalities and caused developmental delays in babies, particularly in these countries.
To combat the pandemic, face masks and isolation were introduced in many places, including schools. The Head Start programme (which only lifted the mask requirement for children this week) raised concerns about the impact of the COVID-19 rules on their pupils almost a year ago.
"Head Start" is a Program of the United States Department of Health and Human Services that offers comprehensive services in education, health, nutrition and parent involvement for low-income children and families.
There have been reports of increased child abuse and child sexual abuse during the pandemic, likely due to stress and isolation. The lockdowns and other restrictions have led to spikes in diabetes and childhood obesity, and the scrapping of sports has had a major impact on children.
- In Paris and the surrounding area, head injuries to infants nearly doubled in the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, increasing from 1.4 cases per month in 2020 to 2.7 cases per month in 2021 (adjusted incidence rate ratio [aIRR] 1.92, 95% CI 1.23-2.99, P=0.02).
- Mortality rates due to head injuries in infants have increased almost tenfold in 2021 (odds ratio 9.39, 95% CI 1.88-47.00).
- The median age of infants with abusive head trauma in the study was 4 months, and 65% were male. Of the 99 cases studied, 87% had bridged vein thrombosis (indicating abuse of the head), 75% had retinal hemorrhages, 32% had fractures, 26% had status epilepticus and 20% had skin lesions.
- 39 billion missed school meals by January 2021.
- Millions of estimated years of life were lost among students in the U.S. alone.
Dr. Scott Atlas recently wrote a excellent piece in The New Criterion: "All honest leaders, all individuals of integrity, should recognize that people have suffered direct harm and even died from the censorship of truth.“
Here are some of the stats Scott highlights in his piece:
- A 2006 review indicated that lockdowns are both ineffective and harmful.
- Lockdowns should not be seriously considered because of their negative effects.
- The closure of schools and the use of experimental drugs in schoolchildren has had negative consequences for children in the US.
- Children have a low risk of serious illness or death from COVID-19
- Most transmission of COVID-19 to children comes from adults
- There is no evidence that open schools pose a significant risk to children, communities or teachers
- The median IFR for children under 19 years of age was 0.0003% during the pre-vaccination period (until the end of 2020)
- In countries with reliable death registration data, no additional deaths among children and adolescents have been identified during the pandemic.
- The number of fatalities among children under the age of 5 for all causes was 25-50 times higher during the lockdowns than in the previous five years.
- The total number of deaths among all-cause children during lockdowns was 4-10 times higher than in the previous five years.
- Closure led to a 10-20% increase in new cases of serious child abuse and a 50-80% increase in the number of child abuse fatalities.
- The number of cases of malnutrition increased by 30-50% and the number of deaths due to malnutrition by 50-100%.
- Lockdowns led to a 40-60% increase in new cases of mental illness in children and young people and an increase of 100-200% suicides by young people.
- Lockdowns caused a 50-80% drop in children's vaccination coverage, leading to outbreaks of preventable diseases.
- Lockdowns led to a 50-80% decrease in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases in children, leading to significant morbidity and potential long-term harm.
- Lockdowns had a negative impact on children's education and development, with long-term consequences for their prospects and well-being.
Given pandemic fears, some countries have begun administering vaccines to children. However, UK health authorities have long stated that the vaccine has been underperforming in children, and the country has started paying damages as a result. Germany, on the other hand, does not recommend the vaccine at all for most children.
Some courageous authors came together to take a closer look at vaccines. Their study assessed the risk and benefit of a booster of the COVID-19 vaccine for young adults between the ages of 18 and 29 at universities. The researchers found that to prevent one COVID-19 hospitalization in a 6-month period, 31,207 to 42,836 young adults would need to receive a third mRNA vaccine. The study also found that the booster measures for young adults are expected to cause net harm, with at least 18.5 serious adverse events for each prevented COVID-19 hospitalization.
These serious adverse events include booster-associated myopericarditis in men, which usually requires hospitalization, and grade ≥3 reactogenicity that interferes with daily activities. The researchers conclude that imposing booster mandates for young adults at universities is unethical because they do not take into account updated risk-benefit analyses for this age group, can lead to net harm for healthy young adults, are disproportionate to the expected benefits, violate the principle of reciprocity, and can have broader negative societal consequences.
One in 500 children under the age of five was hospitalized after receiving the vaccine. To prevent one COVID-19 hospitalization over a 6-month period, an estimated 31,207-42,836 young adults between the ages of 18 and 29 should receive a third mRNA vaccine.
- Per prevented COVID-19 hospitalization, at least 18.5 serious adverse reactions to mRNA vaccines will occur, including 1.5-4.6 booster-associated myopericarditis in men (which typically requires hospitalization).
- There will be, per occurrence of COVID-19 hospitalization, between 1430 and 4626 cases of grade ≥3 reactogenicity (disruption of daily activities, but usually does not require hospitalization).
- The prevalence and thus immunity of previous SARS-CoV-2 infection is high.
- Current vaccines do not significantly reduce transmission.
- The age at which the risk of myopericarditis is greatest is 16-17 years.
In what is perhaps the most unforgivable action to date, forced more than a thousand U.S. universities to take healthy students to take experimental vaccines for a disease that poses a minuscule risk to young people. That went far beyond the forced testing of students — which the CDC itself had already declared "illegal and unethical" in its later-deleted post of Oct. 13, 2020.
Then, in a frightening illustration of the unethical extensions of science denial, several top academic medical centers — Duke, Johns Hopkins, Stanford — conducted a clinical trial in which covid vaccines from the financial sponsor were injected into healthy infants and toddlers for a disease of which those subjects are at a minuscule risk of serious consequences. The researchers justified the drug's success on indirect evidence of serum antibodies, rather than actual clinical protection, because it only occurred in 37 to 51 percent of infections and because no subject, even in the placebo group, became seriously ill or died.
The mental health problems caused by the urge and compulsion are legion among teenagers:
- 44.2% of high school students in a nationwide survey of 7,705 students described persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness that prevented them from participating in normal activities.
- 9% of students in the same study reported an attempted suicide.
- 55.1% of teenage respondents in the same survey said they had experienced emotional abuse from a parent or other adult in their home in the past year.
- 11.3% of teenage respondents in the same study said they had been physically abused.
There are many people who need to be held accountable. Even those who thought it was all exaggerated: "They really know what they're doing. And children are resilient, they can manage."

With such figures, you wonder in despair why mass protests, everywhere, will not break out. Where is the anger at the suffering and mendacity of the (in)competent professional groups and authorities?
The numbers are clear but I am groping, increasingly, in the dark about the ignorance/indifference/naivety of too large parts of the population.
In short: How to get all this between the ears of gullible and honorable citizens who are too docile!
Thanks for the piece Anton
It's to be distraught. I have now understood how such black pages could arise in our recent history. I wish I had never discovered it. And you can't even blame people, they just don't see it.
Yes, recent events have influenced my view of history. To a certain extent. I've always realized that homo sapiens as a species doesn't have a great track record. And I've known for a long time what bureaucratic, technocratic organizations can do to people. It is naïve to think that things like wars, discrimination and genocide are something from the past, or only take place at a distance.
No reason to sit back and relax. But we preach very much for our own parish. It's obvious to us what's going on, but most people don't see it.
It would help if messages were shared a bit more, also to people outside the parish. The readership here is barely expanding.
People are not open to it, Anton. Maurice de Hond has a much larger audience, but it doesn't get through either. Anyone who criticizes is seen as an anti-vaxxer and conspiracy theorist. Thanks to government propaganda. I always try to enter into the discussion, and get the feeling that more people are going to have doubts about the approach. But maybe that's wishful thinking. If something penetrates, it will probably go abroad. America or England.
Anton I share your messages on Facebook every week. I bring out points from you as extra with bold letters. I feel so powerless, there are only a handful who react to it. And when I share a useless message, about a recipe or whatever, I only see that I have followers again. 🙁
Why such lukewarm reactions from the population because of what the government has done to us with the Corona measures?
1. The cowardly mentality of the average Dutchman. You see that in almost all areas. Example: At the moment there are major labor unrest in France because of the increase in the retirement age to ... 64 years!!! Reading this, you wonder in bewilderment how in our country the retirement age has reached 67 without any significant protest.
2. The repressive action of police and ME against peaceful corona protesters. That has deprived many of the desire to demonstrate again, let alone protest. We now know that the order to intervene mercilessly via the NCTV came from the Minister of Justice himself. That was Grapperhaus at the time. The same one that is now seriously threatened from the underworld. For once, let me hope that the 'underworld' will go one step further...
I can't even read this article completely. Not yet, anyway. It really doesn't make me feel good at all. 🙁
Anyway thanks again Anton.
We have to remember that in Pandora's box only hope was left behind. So, along with Reve: " Courageously move forward. But where to."
Arnoud, I also get a knot in my throat.
And thank you Hans. Reve always manages to bring me back into the relativity of The Great Being. In dark times I regularly fall back on his poetry.
The good news
I sat with a beating heart in front of the color television,
and thought, "His holiness will surely mention
of the increasing decline of morals?'
And sure enough, he had hardly started, or I already heard:
decadentia, immorale, multi phyl ti corti rocci;
influenza filmi i cinema bestiale
contra sacrissima matrimoniacale
criminale atheistarum rerum novarum,
(et spiritu tuo), cortomo:
nix on the handa.
It was a pity that it took so short.
But when it was out, there was fine music from the army.
I already love this life. And soon
eternal life in Heaven. You sometimes wonder:
'What have we earned it from?'
