Health fascism is spiralling out of control:
I am pretty sure I am not the only one who is sick and tired of the daily scare conferences put on by our hysterical Premiers and ‘health officers’. But their incessant drip-feed of panic porn has a purpose of course: to keep the masses in such fear that the ever-increasing State can easily expand its power and control – permanently.
And this is ideal for all would-be dictators: frighten the masses so much that they happily go along with whatever assaults on their basic rights and liberties take place. Feed them so much panic-mongering that they simply stop thinking and assessing, and slavishly go along with whatever Big Brother demands of them.
Get them to believe it is the end of the world and that only the All-Wise and All-Caring State can deliver them from death, and they will fall down and worship their Statist Overlords as their saviours. They will do anything – in zombie-like fashion – if they are led to believe that it will “keep them safe”.
So now governments are suppressing people, not the virus. The idiotic lockdowns are just one indication of this. Never mind all the collateral damage that these are causing: lost livelihoods, businesses closed forever, mental health problems, suicides, a rise in drug-taking, alcoholism, and domestic violence.
And now we are seeing a spike in child abuse and incest in homes as well in Australia. As one report said yesterday, “662 Aussie kids report incest, sex abuse. Covid-19 lockdowns across Australia are fuelling sickening child sexual abuse in the family home.”
Yet our one-eyed politicians and ‘health officers’ do not give a rip about any of this. Lockdowns and vaccinations are the only thing they are running with, and to hell with anything else. Never mind that even mass vaccinations are NOT a panacea. As but one example, Israel, which is now 80% vaxxed, is again going back to masks and social distancing, and they are talking about another lockdown! So much for freedom if we all just submit to the jab.
And our elites and politicians pay no price for these draconian lockdowns. Their taxpayer-funded pay cheques are guaranteed. The public sector is sitting pretty while the private sector is haemorrhaging to death. But our leaders do not care one iota.
Perhaps these Premiers, health officers, and bureaucrats might start to care if we returned the favour and suspended their salaries. They are all making $300,000 to $500,000 a year. Yet they are demanding that all of us peons stay home, forget about our jobs, our income, our families, and our very livelihoods, while they keep living the good life.
Thankfully in places like France and Greece the masses are beginning to wake up. They want their freedoms back and are demanding that their leaders start being accountable for all the carnage they are causing. That gives me some hope. But the demands for mandatory vaccinations and vaxx passports continue apace.
And it all starts with small steps. Here in Australia our “experts” are now saying that only those fully vaccinated should be able to go to big events such as football matches. In the UK Boris Johnson is saying no one can go to any large venues, including nightclubs, without the jabs.
Thankfully, fightback is already under way. As to the UK, a group of anti-lockdown MPs are taking on Boris about this: “A leading member of a group of anti-lockdown Tory MPs has warned that the UK is ‘effectively moving to compulsory vaccination’.” https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2021/07/20/anti-lockdown-mp-warns-uk-moving-compulsory-vaccination/
And UK commentator James Delingpole minced no words when he wrote:
Britain’s creepily-titled Vaccines Minister, Nadhim Zahawi, has announced that from September only double-jabbed adults will be allowed into nightclubs. This, it almost goes without saying, is an announcement of the purest evil. And no irony was spared when this was spoonfed to us by Zahawi and the Prime Minister on so-called “freedom day”. Typically of the Boris Johnson administration’s desperate vaccine roll-out programme, it is a mix of bribery and coercion.
Right now, across the United Kingdom, distraught parents worried about the potential side effects of new vaccines are now confronted with equally distraught children understandably terrified that if they don’t get themselves jabbed (for a disease that poses almost zero risk to their health, as the UK’s scientific establishment readily admits) their social life will be over. https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2021/07/19/bojos-no-vaccine-no-clubbing-rule-is-pure-evil/
And by the way, the same folks pushing lockdown mania for the Rona are also wanting to have lockdowns to fight climate change! I kid you not. See this shocking article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/carlieporterfield/2021/03/03/report-world-needs-equivalent-of-pandemic-lockdown-every-two-years-to-meet-paris-carbon-emission-goals/
But we have this ray of hope in the UK from a few months ago: “More than 70 MPs including 40 Conservatives, the former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Liberal Democrat members have forged a parliamentary alliance to oppose Covid identity documents.” https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/apr/02/senior-tories-join-jeremy-corbyn-to-oppose-covid-passports-ahead-of-trials
Fortunately, others are also fighting this new health fascism. Many are speaking out against it. Alan Jones on Sky News has been utterly terrific on all this for months now, as has The Australian newspaper. Adam Creighton for example has been very good indeed. This is from a recent piece of his:
Public health has always had an authoritarian streak, the idea the government knows what’s best for people. Indeed, anti-smoking policies emerged first in Germany in the 1930s. Susan Michie, a prominent member of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies committee that advises the British government as well as a member of the British Communist Party, repeatedly has slammed July 19 Freedom Day as reckless and urged government to make masks and social distancing compulsory forever to suppress the flu.
Coincidence? It’s almost as if for some public health advocates Covid-19 has been a springboard to increase permanently the power of government as much as it has been about saving lives. Michie said in a tweet on Sunday: “England’s lockdown ending may mean people take Covid-19 less seriously” – an understandably horrifying prospect for public health control freaks. Stanford University professor of medicine Jay Bhattacharya says there has long been a tension in public health between advising people how to be healthy and forcing them to be.
“There’s also a norm in public health that there has to be unanimity in messaging … you have to all say the same thing, think the same thing,” he says. That makes sense for smoking, for instance, where the link with cancer is overwhelming. But for Covid-19, where debate rages about the disease and its origin, let alone the best way to deal with it, censorship is inexcusable. https://www.theaustralian.com.au/commentary/suppression-plans-straight-from-ccp-play-book/news-story/71242afe71048b13dd88fe3f4c2fafd9
Australian legal academic Dr Rocco Loiacono has been quite outspoken on the new Jim Crow laws we are seeing being put forward:
I am not against vaccines, and, of course, the government must keep its citizens safe by all ethical means possible. However, governments, bureaucracies and business leaders doing their bidding (Qantas, Alliance Airlines, Flight Centre and so forth) have no right to enforce or to coerce an individual to take a medical treatment against the individual’s better instincts or judgment. This is the sole preserve of the doctor-patient relationship, where individual and particular circumstances, pathologies and conditions can be taken into account by those who know what is best for themselves.
In fact, the Australian Immunisation Handbook makes it clear that: “[Vaccines] must be given voluntarily in the absence of undue pressure, coercion or manipulation.” This long-standing principle of informed consent to medical treatment is enshrined in the Nuremberg Code of 1947, of which Australia is a signatory.
He quotes Tucker Carlson from the US on this: “The coronavirus is transmissible and it can be dangerous, but it’s hardly the only illness that fits that description. There are many. If politicians can segregate potential COVID carriers from the rest of the American population, why can’t they do the same thing to people with HIV, or tuberculosis, or Hepatitis C? … At this point, there really isn’t a reason why this wouldn’t happen because the precedent has been set.”
In Australia, we do not discriminate (and neither should we) on the basis of race, sex, colour, religion, age or so on. Why then should we begin discrimination on the basis of medical status, leading to an underclass of people simply because they did not take a medication they cannot, or did not need, to take. As is the case in America, the same people who profess to be against discrimination in all its forms now argue for its enforcement, aided and abetted by a Prime Minister who has repeatedly demonstrated himself to be an enemy of freedom, and, it seems, would love nothing better to be the new Supreme Leader in his health fascist state. https://www.spectator.com.au/2021/06/vaccine-segregation-is-an-affront-to-liberty/
And even the prestigious British Medical Journal is questioning such things. In a recent editorial it said in part:
As vaccine passports would probably be digital and require access to private medical records, there are important questions around internet access, costs of acquiring and maintaining the passports, privacy, and data protection that must be tackled. Many consider adequate internet access a fundamental human right; as large numbers of people do not have smartphones or stable internet connections, their exclusion breaches their rights to equality, particularly for those in low and middle income countries. Whether it is legal for workplaces, airlines, and entertainment and leisure venues to access vaccination data remains controversial, as this can perpetuate a form of elitism. Furthermore, ensuring that patient sensitive data are not used for other purposes is essential. https://www.bmj.com/content/373/bmj.n861
And there is more: a former editor of the BMJ wrote an interesting piece recently about how fraudulent medical research can be, and how we dare not simply run with whatever the health ‘experts’ are telling us. He concludes his piece with these words: “It may be time to move from assuming that research has been honestly conducted and reported to assuming it to be untrustworthy until there is some evidence to the contrary.” https://blogs.bmj.com/bmj/2021/07/05/time-to-assume-that-health-research-is-fraudulent-until-proved-otherwise/
We are now at the place where we see Big Tech, Big Pharma and the Big State ever more in collusion, ganging up against anyone who dares to take a differing view. Simply consider what US President Biden is now insisting on: that the Tech Giants censor out anything that conflicts with the views of the State on the Rona. Thankfully some have launched a lawsuit against this tyrannical madness: https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/facebook-white-house-colluding-on-censorship-lawsuit_3910455.html
But it is not just would be totalitarians like Biden going down this path. They are all over the place. In the piece by Creighton mentioned above, he discusses our neighbours to the east: “A few days ago Jacinda Ardern urged New Zealanders to take all non-government information with a ‘grain of salt’. ‘Dismiss anything else, we will continue to be your single source of truth,’ she said in remarks that would have been considered bizarre in the era Before Covid. ‘We will provide information frequently and share everything we can’.”
Wow! This is utterly shocking stuff. ‘We will do all the thinking for you. You mere mortals are too stupid to think for yourselves, so just let the State decide what you should believe and how you should think.’ Um, didn’t Orwell write about things like this? Is this not exactly what Communist China and North Korea routinely engage in?
Welcome to our Brave New Covid World.
