- There’s an entire school of research within public health on how to frighten people, known as “fear appeal”
- Fear appeal is based on the premise that to successfully implement a public health measure, you must first highlight a threat. And, to work, the threat must be made personal, so that people fear for their personal safety
- Next, you give people something immediate to do that will set them on the path of cooperating with the plan in its entirety. Examples during the COVID-19 pandemic include not leaving your house, wearing a mask, staying 6 feet apart, closing certain businesses and keeping children home from school. In the future, we can expect to be told we must get vaccinated and digitally tracked before we can resume life as normal
- By adding confusion to the mix, you can bring an individual from fear to anxiety — a state of confusion in which you can no longer think logically. In this state, you are more easily manipulated
- Eventually, when the fear and anxiety are great enough, desperation sets in, at which point people are willing to do just about anything to get relief
Maybe this is not happening here in the UK, but we should all be aware of this possible unintended side-effect of Government control. If the controls are effective in controlling the virus without unacceptable damage to the economy, people’s lives, their health from other factors, and their freedom, then all is well. If not then there will be a price to pay.
Fear has always been a powerful force that can destroy health and crush individual spirits.
