We are often told that restrictions are necessary in order due to worrying variants etc. But is that really “following the science”? I think the lockdowns have rather turned us back towards a dark age of superstition.

You raise points which are important to consider, but they’re a minority view in the scientific community. I’d suggest it would be better to make that clear, and not simply dismiss the majority view as superstitious and unscientific.
As I said, it would be better to make it clear that you’re quoting minority positions. You reference a few papers as though they were definitively the final word, and then dismiss all contrary scientific views as essentially people making stuff up without evidence. I don’t think you’re giving your audience the full picture.
I don’t disagree that the majority can be wrong, and that’s why I said the points you raise are important to consider.
As a suggested programme, why not hunt down all the evidence on both sides, disclose the papers that are contrary to your position, and show us where they’re flawed?
