‘If you are afraid you will be very easy to control’, Psychiatrist warns of our fear of COVID

In a recent Ted Talks, a leading psychiatrist from Sweden, David Eberhard, warned that if people don’t come to grips with their fear of COVID they will be very easy to control.

Eberhard, the head psychiatrist of Prima Maria Addiction Care Clinic in Stockholm, stated that we have an inordinate fear of a virus that only kills about 0.2% of the people.

The psychiatrist adds that the daily reporting by media of COVID deaths has resulted in people believing that anyone who comes down with COVID will die. It has led to what he describes as the National Panic Syndrome and people increasingly demanding that government’s protect them, which he describes as the “security junkie syndrome.”

He states that life is full of risks, and we need to start challenging our fears in order to live.

LifeSite News provided some of Eberhard comments:

“Whatever you do, remember that life is not about living the longest, but the best. If you live in fear and isolation, there is no point in living. 

“If you are afraid, you will be very easy to control, which is what we have seen during the pandemic.

“We all need to stop acting risk-averse and instead, in a rational way, start to challenge our fears. The probability that you die of an infection that has a mortality rate of around 0.2 percent is negligible.

“Whatever you do, remember that life is not about living the longest, but the best. If you live in fear and isolation, there is no point in living.

“Don’t lock yourself in and don’t let others do it to you. Try to live a good life in the relatively short time you have.”
