America, “land of freedom”…
The “lockdown” zealots and facemask fanatics, who usually like to present themselves as terribly compassionate etc (and who are usually economically unaffected by the shutdown, being either fairly affluent and/or “working from home” and/or working for the State and so unlikely to be made redundant or sacked, or who are unemployed/retired and so not likely to be made homeless) seem to regard people like the lady mentioned in that tweet as collateral damage of a “necessary” policy.

Exactly. Some people are so black and white-minded that they say “Covid-19 is real, not a scam, so the conspiracy theory about the Great Reset is rubbish…“, when of course it is perfectly possible for “the virus” to be both real and a serious public health problem, and also being used as a convenient way of pushing through huge socio-political change via fear propaganda, financial manipulation etc. Oh, and as for the “Great Reset” being a “conspiracy theory”, it’s no theory. Indeed, the World Economic Forum [WEF; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Economic_Forum] actually both tweeted, and published elsewhere, the view that the virus situation was a perfect opportunity to push the Great Reset. They even used the words, “Great Reset”.

Well, that school is certainly “educating” its pupils, teaching them that they cannot express thoughts freely, cannot trust their school or teachers, and teaching them to fear police interference if they say the “wrong” things, Well done, Dungannon!
