“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”

Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa

As we know Mr Mandela was no angel. Originally a terrorist with the ANC. He was caught, tried, imprisoned and tortured. He also fought for a just cause of racial equality, nationalism and independence of the people of South Africa. 

Whilst there is much to say about his actions and place in history what he said about children is, without doubt, a crucial gauge of a society; it’s moral standing, it’s ability to be called humane and just. It’s very reason to exist in its own form and command the respect and trust of those its governs.

This week our government, the United Kingdom’s Conservative Party, determined that it will vaccinate all children without consent of parents. This is contrary to existing medical advice and contrary to the will of millions of parents who every day have to make decisions for the health and well being of their children. 

In making this decision those who created it, support it  and promote it, revealed a dangerous and dark side to governance.

When I first heard the news that the government had decided to vaccinate all children between the ages of 12 and 18 I first thought it was it was a sinister joke or a piece of dark propaganda.  After all, wasn’t it the government themselves who said that they would never need to do so, because it was an adult vaccine.  Here is Matt Hancock  the former UK Health Secretary, 

Furthermore the scientific evidence of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, THE JCVI said that vaccinating children was riskier than not or in their self protective language “margin of benefit for older children, on health grounds alone, was too small for the committee to support jabs for the entire age group …….    

But despite it being an adult vaccine, that the risks are higher for children and that whether you get the vaccine or not you are equally likely to contract and transmit Covid 19 they Government demands that the Joint JCVI review their advice and guidance and consider the wider implications of the whole community. 

The very language that they demand the JCVI must look again is the stuff of political gangsterism. Watch any movie where the political leader says to his colleagues think again or Mafia boss and you get the picture. 

What the government is doing some would say IS the Stuff of politics subtly threatening. Maybe a loss of the role on the committee, the future membership of House of Lords or the gong they were promised? Would they really take these 50 pieces of silver for the lives of Children

What happened to listening to the evidence? What happened to listening to the science. What happened to all the Remainer backers who now support this but said listen to the experts.

There is a much more serious reason to ignore the government and listen to common sense and science. Children’ s bodies, organs and brains are still developing. There is a well founded scientific and medical practice that extra caution needs to be taken when rolling out new medicines to them. For the reactions are unknown and can be fatal.

Haven’t we been here before. Haven’t the children been victims in horrific way in modern times. Take the impacts of Thalidomide. A drug that caused the loss of 124,000 babies and 24,000 born with physical impairments

Those who designed the drug the scientist, those who manufactured it, those who passed it, the politicians, petty civil servants and authorities did not have to live with the deadly consequence. They never lost their family members, they never lived with the deformities and pain. 

They never lost their jobs, they were never imprisoned for murder or negligence, they never retired in disgrace. They lived fruitful lives, were made rich, promoted or given honours.

They were the same type people who are promoting the vaccines in children today. Safe in the knowledge the government has implemented every possible legal safety to ensure that from the scientist to the manufacturer to politician to the person who injects the needle will NEVER, I repeat NEVER be punished. Never suffer final loss if the child they inject dies or is malformed or ill for the rest of their lives.

That is not to says vaccines don’t work, but it is cautionary whether or not we should use them on children. It is also wrong to vaccinate children with consent of parents.

Our children are being sacrificed by those whose moral maturity is still in its infancy. Our  children are being sacrificed by those men and women whose characters are like spoilt teenagers unwilling to listen to their parents when they are clearly in the wrong

They are all dangerous people couching their words in the language of comfort and assistance for the greater good.

They are petty tyrants loving their moment in life to lord it over the petulant masses.  Now they are coming for our children. In their desire to control people, the destruction of the family with its crucial blood ties and trust is crucial.

I remember the words of Matthew chapter 18 verse 6. 

“If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”

We need to decide are we on the side of these men and women who have lost their souls to the darkness or are you on the side of the Children.
