I remember looking at some responses and remarks from people on a video discussing the fact that the UK government has ''terrified the population'' over Covid and some of them sound really narrow-minded and hurtful especially when there are people whose anxiety has been hyped up during this time and its of no fault of their own because they didn't choose to have anxiety and some said they are ''weak and conforming cowards''. That makes my blood boil.

Someone said ''Please stop saying it 'terrified the nation ',it didn't, it only terrified the weak minded whose compliance throughout this clown show has resulted in it lasting as long as it has.'', Someone else said ''A couple of weeks ago I was in Lidl and some masked woman, in her 40s or 50s started edging away, because she was terrified of catching Omicron. On being told not to be such a snowflake she started swearing very strongly. It was really rather funny. There was me behind her, without a mask, the customer in front was also sans mask, as was the cashier. She probably wet her knickers.'' Another said ''If she's at risk of severe illness then don't go out! Fear is mankind's greatest enemy! Are you gonna sit at home waiting for the government to make the world a safe place? Just in case someone chooses not to wear a mask in a shop! You'll be waiting a long time! Weak, pathetic people so desperate to prolong the lives that they're not even living!'' I could go on forever about other comments but I won't.

I think fear and change are two of the most misunderstood things in the world. You can add strength to that.

I even found out somewhere that Americans are even looking over at compliance of people over here and saying it is ''pathetic''.
