Australia’s insane COVID rules are a warning to the rest of the Free World:
The 18th-century English philosopher Jeremy Bentham came up with the idea of the panopticon, a prison designed to allow all the prisoners to be ­observed by one guard.
What even Bentham couldn’t conceive of, despite his creative musings about schemes of perpetual surveillance, was a society like contemporary Australia.
Once an honorable member of the Free World, Australia has lurched into a bizarre and disturbing netherworld of bureaucratic oppression in the name of public health. Australia’s lockdown mania has been so all-consuming that one assumes much of it would make Anthony Fauci blanch.
At the start of the pandemic, Australia determined to squeeze out COVID with lockdowns and travel restrictions and, as an island nation, had considerable success. It was the last of the G-20 countries to hit 1,000 total deaths.
But this created an unrealistic expectation that Australia could have COVID-zero as a goal for the duration and use targeted restrictions and surveillance (“circuit-breakers”) to maintain it. --->READ MORE HERE
Australia’s COVID Police State Is What Happens When You Give Up Your Guns:
The COVID totalitarianism Aussies find themselves in today serves as a stark reminder to forever safeguard the right to self-defense, for it will offer more security than the government could ever guarantee.
Since the outset of the COVID-19 lockdowns, Australia has instituted some of the strictest lockdown measures in the western world. Once viewed as a free, prosperous society, the nation has slowly devolved into a full-fledged police state. with the federal government even going as far as to prohibit citizens from leaving the country.
At the state level, the situation is seemingly worse, with the severity of COVID restrictions varying among localities. In the Greater Sydney region of New South Wales, local authorities have restricted most interstate travel, forcibly shuttered places of worship, and limited the reasons individuals are allowed to leave their homes. Likewise in Victoria, where citizens remain in indefinite lockdown, state officials have instituted a curfew from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. in metropolitan Melbourne.
Most recently, the government of South Australia decided to expand their police powers even further, with officials announcing plans for a new app that uses facial recognition software to track the movements and location of its citizens to ensure universal compliance with state COVID regulations.
“People in South Australia will be forced to download an app that combines facial recognition and geolocation,” The Atlantic reported. “The state will text them at random times, and thereafter they will have 15 minutes to take a picture of their face in the location where they are supposed to be. Should they fail, the local police department will be sent to follow up in person.”
Coupled with egregious reports of a father getting arrested in front of his infant child for going maskless at a local park and police detaining hundreds of lockdown protestors, the country bears all the hallmarks of a dying, once-free society. --->READ MORE HERE
