An entire generation of young Quebecers will remember that it has ruined his school by sanitary measures draconian, and that it has cancelled its holiday camps… for nothing.
The children are not contagious and the disease that ruined the world this time is not threatening to them : I could copy-paste this good news a hundred times since it do we not fit in the head.
The children are not contagious and the disease that ruined the world this time is not threatening to them… The children are not contagious and the disease that ruined the world this time is not threatening to them… Repeat this litany.
But it is great the mystery of Faith. We argue to do as if the children were spreading COVID-19, and as if the children were at risk of dying.
To describe this illusion voluntary, I suggest the neologism “gérontomorphisme” — on the model of the word “anthropomorphism”. When one lends motivations to a cat or an appearance of an old man bearded to God, they are represented as human : they are made of anthropomorphism. When we close the parks for children or that it prevents them from playing them or give hugs, we take them for old, we are doing a ” gérontomorphisme “.
Ban holiday camps in Quebec because of the COVID-19 ? Gérontomorphisme. Place the pupils on distant points of two meters in the school yard ? Gérontomorphisme. Cancel the remainder of the school year in Montreal ? Gérontomorphisme. Prohibiting children to play ball ? Gérontomorphisme. When the City decides not to open the water games ? Gérontomorphisme. All of this is absurd and cruel. That the public Health sacre so patience for children!
Protection or cruelty ?
Ask the adults to avoid getting close to others to slow the progression of the COVID-19, it may be a good idea ; we’re catching on, unlike the children. Require parents not to enter the nursery, to stay at the door, it is includes. However, it is wicked — yes, wicked — to apply the same rule to children.
Keep the modules of closed sets, prohibit the children of team sports, the sequester in isolation for the (false) grounds of health, it is less of protection and more of the cruelty. Our children have grown up digéreront evil this episode where the adults have imposed all sorts of disturbances and physical and mental suffering… for nothing.
