Study Shows Medical Tyranny Is Creating Global Idiocracy
Since the start of the pandemic, a whole suite of scare tactics has been used to keep the public in a perpetual state of fear and anxiety in order to more willingly accept whatever edicts come down from the desks of our globalist rulers. But ever since studies have been able to be conducted within a reasonable time horizon, there has been growing evidence that some of these measures have been grossly misguided at best and civilizational catastrophic at worst. A recent study that was published appears to show that the nightmare scenario might be more accurate.
According to the Daily Mail, a new study conducted by Brown University found that children’s intelligence quotient, a reliable measure of cognitive abilities, decreased by a staggering 23 percent since the start of the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns. This drop has largely been pinned on the lockdowns and mask mandates that appear to have severely impeded the ability of children to develop their communication skills as well as their ability to take facial cues due to everyone at school being forced to wear masks.
The study tracked the cognitive development of school-age children through infancy, childhood, and adolescence, analyzing over a thousand assessments that were conducted on over six hundred children before March of 2020 when the lockdowns started being pushed on the world.
From March of 2020 to June of 2021, the height of the pandemic lockdowns and before large-scale vaccination in most countries, 154 assessments from 118 children were able to be made in order to compare and contrast data from the pre-pandemic control sample. The plotted results appear to be very statistically significant, with cognitive data from 2020 and 2021 dropping far below the normal statistical range for the decade.
Three generally accepted measures of accurate child development were used by the research team to tabulate their data sets, namely the early learning composite (ELC), verbal development quotient (VDQ), and non-verbal development quotient (NVDQ).
The results of the study paint a very worrisome picture, showing a 23 point drop in cognitive scores from about 100 in 2019 to 80 in 2020 and a mere 77 in 2021. This drop represents a one-and-a-half standard deviation drop in cognitive ability, or greater than the difference between a school teacher and a university professor. Both verbal and non-verbal development show similarly drastic drops of 30 points (100 in 2019 to 70 in 2021) and 25 points (105 in 2019 to 80 in 2021) respectively.
Additionally, the authors of the study postulated that this drop is impacting children from modest backgrounds noticeably more than those with wealthy parents, as wealthier parents were able to mitigate some of the negative effects of social distancing policies.
Many believe that these results also highlight the long-term potential side effects of social distancing measures on more qualitative aspects of childhood development. Ashley Ruba, a postdoctoral researcher in the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Child Emotion Lab explained to CNN in August that masks prevent children from learning how to pick up social cues and facial expressions which are vital in determining the degree of safety in particular situations. Indeed, with the majority of communication between humans classified as nonverbal and largely through expressions, this loss of stimulation could potentially follow a child through his or her life into adulthood.
