I think it's an attitude that has been growing for 15-20 years
back in my day if a kid did something wrong at school they were in big trouble - parents would back the teacher. These days the "don't tell me what to do brigade" will be up at school assaulting the teacher. No respect for expertise, authority etc etc
So much effort spent convincing people that expertise is just an opinion during the Brexit campaign now come home to roost.
I get that the government could have done better, and some folk may have over played the issue. I think everyone accepts vaccines shouldnt be rushed out either, and that masks arent a golden bullet to saving the world.
But the folk pushing things to the extreme are bonkers, one tiny step from flat earthers.
There is a 5G mask going up 350 metres from my daughters school, 3 kids from my daughters class have been moved to a different school by their parents because of this, oddly it doesnt yet include the main crackpot anti vax mother.
It really feels like the last 5/6 years people have decided to be stupid
The first 20 years of the internet werent this mad, were they ?
We used to laugh at David Icke, now people are believing him
