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.

One of the things we’ve got used to over the last 15 months is headlines telling us scientists warn against – well, just about everything to do with covid. But how accurate are their warnings? And why are they so doom-laden? Links Spectator Data Tracker “How did Sage get it so wrong?” by Prof Philip […]
For over a year we’ve been constantly told that of the dangers of “asymptomatic transmission”. This has driven much of the lockdown policy. But I think the narrative of asymptomatic transmission has caused something far worse – a change in our mindset. Will Jones’ piece about covid (including on asymptomatic transmission) is here.
Is it right to do something you know is wrong for some greater good? Do lockdowns fit into this category? What does the Bible say about the “greater good”? Here I look at some of the ways our society thinks of the “greater good”, and we look at the Parable of the Good Samaritan. The […]

In my previous video about why lockdowns are immoral I wanted to say one more thing but ran out of time. In this video I take a more in depth look at what philosophers call the trolley problem.
There’s a concept from Christianity called “legalism” which I think has become evident in our society’s response to covid. So what is legalism, and why is it a bad thing?
I’ve been thinking for a long time now that we need a new reformation. The last year or so has convinced me that this is critically important for the health of our society. But I am convinced that God is at work.
One of the most puzzling things of the last 12 months is this: why is it that some people, especially the government, are so obsessed with masks? Why do people treat them as if they’re the only thing standing between us and disaster?
