Reclaiming our Mental Health from COVID

It is time to refocus and not allow our mental health to be further compromised because of a “fear of the virus”. It is time we readdress this both personally and as communities. I respect personal decisions and the right to choose what each person decides is best for them and their family how to handle risks from CoVid.  Take reasonable precautions but know we are also fed an ongoing barrage of fear, social pressure, governmental overreach, and threat of business shutdowns all designed to encourage people to comply with directives.  People have died from CoVid and one person is too many; however, the loss of life falls short of previous pandemics such as the Spanish Flu in 2018 and as statistics will be sorted out in the future, it is very possible that the deaths will be closer to a very bad flu than a pandemic in the historical sense. From a psychological standpoint the use of fear and intimidation from a social psychology perspective is noteworthy.  The use of mandates, which can be strongly argued are unconstitutional based upon the lack of evidence to supporting the necessity of governmental control given the relatively overall death rate (it is important to sort out case rates vs. death rate).  If every year everyone was tested for flu would we find a similarly high number of cases?  In summary, CoVid is more than just a virus that kills a number of people – it is used as a social change tool to foster ends and means beyond just controlling the virus – it is an overreach of taking away personal decisions in our life replaced by a collective who would demand compliance of the population.  There is a similarity to George Orwell’s book 1984 and the promotion of a totalitarian society.  Time to say no!  It is time to take back our mental health, economic health, and to stop an overreach by government and science that is falsely put forth as always being correct.  From a psychological perspective we are being “pushed and shoved” in a certain direction.  Not only does this have application from a social psychology perspective it also has moral and spiritual applications for us as a society.  We are told we must obey science (the science that those in charge tell us to believe as the only true science).  All of this sounds similar to other institutions who have told us that they are the authors of all truth and the only truth and if we do not obey them, we must suffer the consequences.  It is based in control and the use of fear to promote compliance.  I choose not to go in that direction.  Instead I chose to empower people to make their own informed moral, spiritual, decisions as free human beings in a free society. http://emapdrschulz.com
