“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way it treats its children.” – Nelson Mandela
Is that headline too harsh?
Given the systematic abuse of children under the pretext of “protecting them from Covid” — using measures predominantly initiated and enforced by Democrats in blue states and cities — I don’t think so.
For two years, children have been terrorized with fear, isolated from their friends, denied an education, forced to wear useless and dehumanizing masks, and denied their athletic and artistic pursuits. They were taught to view everyone around them as a deadly bio-hazard and warned that if they didn’t go along with all the rules they might kill Grandma. They were even denied in-person treatment for mental health and social support services.
Older children and young adults have seen their social lives as well as their dreams and careers go up in smoke.
