Details of a document from the Government’s secretive SAGE “Scientific Advisory Group on Emergencies” group number 18, concerning behavioural science, were made public last week.
The document indicates that fear and social disapproval are being weaponised as a strategy for public control.
One of the lines from the document was this:
“The perceived level of personal threat needs to be increased among those who are complacent, using hard-hitting emotional messaging.”
At a time when the prime minister’s chief aide, Dominic Cummings, who sat in on SAGE group meetings, has been reported to have flouted lockdown rules by travelling 260 miles to visit relatives, there are strong indications that these unprecedented lockdown measures have been implemented not so much to save lives, but to impose public controls and implement “emergency” legislation that tramples on civil liberties.
