In an interview with Julia Hartley Brewer, author Laura Dodsworth explains that the scientists working with the British government on COVID purposefully weaponized fear in order to get the Brits to comply with their government overlords.
The government is using behavioural psychology to control people. They have done such a good job of terrorizing British citizens that people are now terrified of resuming their normal lives.
From the YouTube preamble:
Scientists on a committee that encouraged the use of fear to control people’s behaviour during the Covid pandemic have admitted its work was “totalitarian”. Members of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour have expressed regret about the “unethical” methods.
