LOCKDOWN: Confinement of Prisoners to Their Cells as a Temporary Security Measure – Merriam-Webster Dictionary

COVID19 RESPONSE PLATFORM – In times of emergencies and crises all sorts of people try to take advantage of the public as it is mainly concerned with its survival during such times.

One of the main threats in any crisis is not the cause of the crisis itself but rather the way the crisis is explained (or not explained) to the public.

Misinformation that is put out, be it by dubious independent individuals or government officials, always controls the people’s perception of a situation. The truth is only accepted or ‘officially’ revealed when the emergency or crisis is long over. The misinformation, meanwhile, has caused more damage than the cause of the crisis.

It is not any different with the 2019-2020 “coronavirus outbreak”. This is easily proven through the information that has been collected by the COVID19 Response Platform.

Part of the various misinformation strategies is the control of language. When you control language, what specific words (allegedly) mean, you control how people perceive a situation. These acts, of controlling language during crises, are all too often part of broader agendas that questionable entities want to further implement while almost no one of the public is paying attention.

In 2009, Merriam-Webster Dictionary’s definition for the word “lockdown” stated the following, according to its archived page:

Main Entry: lock·down
Pronunciation: \-ˌdau̇n\
Function: noun
Date: 1977

: the confinement of prisoners to their cells for all or most of the day as a temporary security measure

“The confinement of prisoners to their cells”… Let that sink in for a minute…

Why are we being forced, through the news media especially, to use this word “lockdown” to describe the social and economic situation of this COVID-19 pandemic? Does this make any sense to anyone? Unless, of course, you’d be one of those who are pursuing evil agendas.

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary the word “lockdown” was first widely used in 1977. Since then it has always meant “the confinement of prisoners to their cells for all or most of the day as a temporary security measure”, as also these archived pages of Merriam-Webster Dictionary confirm: 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016.

Mysteriously, in 2017 history was suddenly being rewritten for reasons that are highly likely aligned with Anthony Fauci’s claim in 2017 that the Trump administration would face a “surprise infectious disease outbreak”. Not only did Merriam-Webster Dictionary now claim that the word “lockdown” was widely used already in 1973, instead of 1977, an entirely new and additional definition was added, stating:

an emergency measure or condition in which people are temporarily prevented from entering or leaving a restricted area or building (such as a school) during a threat of danger

If this new definition was so crucial in 2017, then it should have been crucial since 1977, or 1973, because the new definition is especially in reference to mass shootings. It’s not that the word “lockdown” wasn’t already widely used in the 1980s and 1990s, in reference to mass shootings. Specifically in reference to buildings or areas being locked down to contain the crime scenes and the alleged suspects.

For instance, in a LA Times article of April 23, 1999 (21 years ago) the word “lockdown” is also used in refernce to locking down schools: “As all Littleton schools went into ‘lockdown,’ police called for still more ammo.”

So, it’s not that the word “lockdown” suddenly became a mainstream word in 2017. Lockdown has been widely used by news outlets during the past decades but only more recently, according to Merriam-Webster, did it become a permanent fixture in reference to locking down buildings and areas other than prisons.

Clearly, this is the result of the extreme militarization of society. Not at the request of the public at large, but by design – following specific agendas that seek to further enslave the people on this planet.

Why else would police officers their gear have changed so drastically over the years? It’s not that rioters or criminals are suddenly more dangerous.

Apparently, it is about conditioning the public’s perception, into accepting their own oppression through fear tactics concocted by the evil creatures that have also created the World Economic Forum, the United Nations, Bilderberg Meetings and so forth.

Control the words, and you control the people’s minds and behavior.
