Public Figures Questioning the Coronavirus Lockdowns

Evil prevails when good men do nothing.

A growing number of public figures are questioning the coronavirus emergency measures being implemented by governments. They realise the catastrophic impact lockdowns will have on people’s lives and livelihoods. This page is a compilation of well-known journalists and professionals who have spoken out publicly.

Alan Jones

“Coronavirus can’t be allowed to destroy democracy… This order in NSW, by a Liberal government, should never have been gazetted. It’s badly thought out, it’s undemocratic, it’s hopelessly Un-Australian, it treats us as if we’re all either completely stupid or servants of the state… It owes more to Russia than it does to Australia!”

“I’m becoming surer than ever that we may be making a very big mistake. Destroying the jobs and businesses of hundreds of thousands of Australians, maybe soon millions, for too little gain. I’m surer than ever that our politicians are attacking this crisis the wrong way… But politicians pushed by many journalists have panicked. They’ve overreacted by also forcing shut so many businesses, they’ve killed so many jobs, and that has caused enormous suffering… Today is when you must start to question our governments. Are they now causing more harm than good?”

“If government agencies continue to act as they are doing, people soon will be confronted with the problem that they can no longer buy necessary things—first, because the shelves will be empty, and second, because they will have no more income later, when the shelves are slowly restocked again. Companies have closed and salaries will not show up in bank accounts. Rent due dates for homes and businesses will not be met. It is not the coronavirus that will bring the economy to a standstill, but the way in which politics is responding to the epidemic.”

“The coronavirus numbers, in terms of mortality and fatality, are being skewed; And those numbers are driving panic, and the panic is driving lockdown, and the lockdown is driving a situation that we are headed toward that will have huge ramifications for tens of millions of Americans.”

“Under the guise of public safety, governments around the world are curtailing our cherished freedoms and ancient practices. There is a risk that they will never be fully returned.”

“We’re all concerned about the elderly, those with chronic illnesses, that they should be isolated. But the potential catastrophic economic consequences of this will do untold damage for, I think, many years to come.”

“Folks… Fauci and Bourkes, maybe even Donald Trump, and all the people around the world who went out of their way to destroy our economy are going to try and tell you it was because we had lockdowns. But everything in the math and a growing body of international scientists are telling you otherwise. They’re saying, be careful, it was never in the numbers. The real numbers never showed this.”

The real problem is that when human societies lose their freedom, it’s not usually because tyrants have taken it away. It’s usually because people willingly surrender their freedom in return for protection against some external threat. And the threat is usually a real threat but usually exaggerated. That’s what I fear we are seeing now. The pressure on politicians has come from the public. They want action. They don’t pause to ask whether the action will work. They don’t ask themselves whether the cost will be worth paying.”

Peter Hitchens

“We’ve established in our discussion that neither you nor the government have any actual scientific theoretical basis for this policy, there isn’t one… Yet, the government, on the basis of absolutely nothing except speculation and guesswork, proposes to take the most radical economic and political step taken by a government in this country, probably ever.”

“This is our future, and if I did not lift my voice to speak up for it now, even if I do it quite alone, I should consider that I was not worthy to call myself English or British, or a journalist, and that my parents’ generation had wasted their time saving the freedom and prosperity which they handed on to me after a long and cruel struggle whose privations and griefs we can barely imagine.”

Robert Kiyosaki

“It’s a ruse. I don’t doubt it’s real, but it’s blown out of proportion by the media. It’s a fake, it’s a deception to steal our money. So that’s all I’m saying. Am I afraid? I’m afraid of my next door neighbour, that’s who I’m afraid of. If they don’t have any money or they can’t feed their kids. Desperate people do desperate things.”

Ron Paul

“People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus “pandemic” could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic… That is not to say the disease is harmless. Without question people will die from coronavirus. Those in vulnerable categories should take precautions to limit their risk of exposure. But we have seen this movie before. Government over-hypes a threat as an excuse to grab more of our freedoms. When the “threat” is over, however, they never give us our freedoms back.”

“The Imperial College London model is woeful and the data underneath it is woeful… Any elected official who is claiming that we can go 18 months and shut the economy off and then turn it back on again… That’s madness. You can’t do that without tremendous loss of life as a result of increases in unemployment. That’s reckless. It’s both medical malpractice and political malpractice.”
