The people of Australia are now subject to the world’s most severe and draconian Covid rules under the guise of “keeping them safe.”
In a press conference over the weekend, Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews announced that unvaccinated residents will be prohibited from enjoying their God-given freedoms and barred from participating in normal activities.
Accessing medical treatments, the ability to work, shopping for groceries, and seeing friends and family will only be permitted for people who can prove they have been vaccinated. Everybody else will be forced to remain in lockdown and isolated, which will be enforced by the state.
Theconservativetreehouse.com reports: The justification for withholding access to life in Victoria is based on a premise that vaccinated people do not contract COVID, therefore the coronavirus is a “virus of the unvaccinated.” That statement is a completely false position. As seen in the U.S., and all other nations around the world, the vaccinated population contracts COVID in the same way as the non-vaccinated. Some studies have even shown the vaccinated population is susceptible to carrying higher loads of the virus than non-vaccinated individuals.
The vaccine provides zero benefits from avoidance of the virus. Any claim to the contrary is totally devoid of reality, science, or empirical evidence.
In some nations -like Israel- there is more than a 90% vaccinated status, and yet the COVID virus is still infecting, spiking, and creating large issues with hospitalization for those at greatest risk. A large percentage of that Israeli population is now triple-vaxxed, and yet the issues continue. Conversely, in Sweeden and parts of the U.S, the economy and society are largely open, and the variant viruses are running through the vaccinated and non-vaccinated population without a significantly disparate outcome.
Keep in mind the survival rate from infection is stunningly disconnected from the severity of these mitigation efforts. The overall risks are very small except for those with pre-existing conditions that make them vulnerable to a respiratory virus.
Several weeks ago, I would have dismissed the opinion that Australia and New Zealand were some sort of testing ground for the ability of a government to control the activity of the population. However, as I have watched the two nations conduct their COVID mitigation efforts; and contrast their claims against the reality of what is happening on the remaining parts of planet earth; I can no longer dismiss that theory…. in fact, I am becoming increasingly convinced that is exactly what is going on.
There is just no other way to explain the disconnect between (1) what Australian political officials and state-run health offices are saying; (2) the scale and scope of the totalitarian COVID mitigation efforts -writ large- they are executing; and (3) the reality of experiences in the rest of the civilized world.
The Australian government is not in an isolation bubble with the incapacity to see the world around them and communicate with other nations. They know what is happening around the world, and those worldwide events are completely contradictory from the decisions being made by the government officials down under.
What is happening in Australia and New Zealand for COVID mitigation is being done with intent and purpose; yet, it is devoid of sense when contrast against the rest of the world.
Therefore, if we accept these officials are not literally stupid people; and if we accept they possess a reasonable constitution; the only reconciliation of their conduct is that some guiding element is instructing them to conduct their national affairs as if the experiences of the rest of the world are non-existent. That would seem to affirm there is some sort of widespread social test happening down-under.
The most bizarre part of accepting the premise that Australia and New Zealand are testing grounds for government control in the 21st century is then asking yourself how a nation of 25.5 million people cannot see their fishbowl of crazy. Surely they still have access to the worldwide internet, or do they? Are the Aussies and Kiwis able to use social media that connects them to other nations, or are there filters from Big Tech intended to support the government test? Are journalists in Australia not capable of seeing the rest of the world?
I am not asking these questions out of some intent to be provocative or snarky; I genuinely cannot fathom how 25 million people cannot see the disconnect between the rules and regulations put upon them by their government and then contrast those restrictions against the visible outcomes in the rest of the world.
Australia seems to have become this weirdly antonymous state like North Korea.
Here’s the full press conference from Premier Daniel Andrews of Victoria. He is quite passionate about following through with the rules he outlines.
If you have the time to watch this, it is well worth it to gain a perspective on how the government is messaging society with points about COVID that are completely and utterly false. Perhaps it’s not a lie if they convince themselves to believe it….
