Isolation Notes

Written by

Those of us confined to lockdowns will know the pain of Covid politics.  Add to that the pain of useless isolation and you get the full, purgatorial picture.

Fred Nile says enough is enough, and invites all who cherish freedom to respectfully remind the Prime Minister of his obligations to his citizens.

Lockdown Blues (The W.H. Auden Variant)

Written by

First appeared at The Daily Sceptic, UK

The nightmare of Covid hysteria and the crushing of freedom it has caused only grow afresh during an expected, relatively mild winter outbreak of an equally expected, overblown "variant".  Two questions are endlessly repeated by those who worry about these things.  One, how the hell did we get here?  And two, why did we give up our freedom without a fight?  The ground was long prepared for this.

The Illiberalism of Pro-Vaxxer “Liberals”

Written by

Those who have opposed lockdowns because of the impact they have on personal freedom should also be manning the barricades in relation to vaccine mandates, and not giving them a pass because they will help return life to "normal".

It's Just Not Cricket

Written by

The Sydney cricket test has begun.  Virtually without a crowd.  Those there are all wearing masks, because they are compulsory in Sydney.  Covid summer madness has hit the Premier State, where a mere two Covid deaths have occurred since 1 September 2020.

The Year That Was

Written by

2020 was the very worst of times.  A year not to savour but to regret.  What was thought inconceivable a mere twelve months ago is now real.  It can never be inconceivable again.  Barring a miracle or concerted political action by those who resent our loss of freedom, a dystopian future surely awaits us all.

Deadwood Justice

Written by

It was late 2019, and a coincidence of events saw Australian police forces, especially Victoria Police, under the pump.  2020 only got worse for our bungling coppers.  First there was the humiliation of the Pell case outcome, then the unconscionable thuggery of VicPol against its own citizenry, beamed around the world, and finally, the McMurdo excoriation.  Will things change?  Will the rogue force south of the Murray be set to rights?  Will anyone be punished?  This article was written in December 2019, and is published here now for the first time.

The Hexagon of Tyranny

Written by

We are facing a six-headed monster of tyranny.  Freedom is on the line, as Western, so-called democratic governments have trashed our basic human rights.  How much do we know, or care?

Profiting from Covid - The New Growth Industry

Written by

Welcome to the Covid economy.  Depleted incomes, smashed small businesses, bullshit jobs, a whole new platform for crony capitalism, deserted main streets.  What's not to love?

Conspiracy Theory and Its Discontents

Written by

The charge of being a conspiracy theorist is now poison.  A conversation killer. Unfortunately, many dissenters from the State's line on many issues, not just Covid, are cowed by the charge.  It is a trick.

The Digital Enablement of Totalitarianism

Written by

2020 has seen the perfect storm of digitally powered, state driven totalitarianism.  Benign, progressive, problem solving, utopian Big Tech has nudged us all towards an Orwellian dystopia of social control.

Convergent Opportunism

Written by

Conspiracy theorists are everywhere.  Sometimes, though, they are called acute observers, social scientists, historians, critical thinkers.  Governments and others may not have planned the Covid epidemic, but many with agendas are cashing in.  Call them convergent opportunists.

A Nothingburger that Changed the World

Written by

The madness of 2020 has changed our lives forever.  We owe it to ourselves to ask how, who and why?

As well as being profoundly irrational and damaging to our freedom and to our economy, elements of the Australian lockdowns may well be unlawful.  A number of legal experts question the constitutionality of things like the prevention of Australian overseas from returing home.

The Covid Fascism of the Pro-Vaxxers

Written by

Those who wish to curtail our freedom and rights over a public health scare paint those who oppose their efforts as fringe dwellers and extremists.  Deplorables.  Anti-vaxxers.  Nut cases.  The ones who we should really fear are those who wish to deny us our essential freedoms.

Ten Killer Covid Facts

Written by

Politicians are said to love "killer facts".  And to want to "follow the science".  Sadly, those running our Covid policy responses seem not to want to do either.

Conspiracy theory has been invoked by Victorian Police commanders to tarnish the reputations of citizens who object to totalitarianism.  What is conspiracy theory?  It is worth unpacking in these weird times.  It turns out that many conspiracy theories are respectable.  Indeed, they explain much of the world.

Where is the Resistance to CovidMania?

Written by

While a Nationals MP in New South Wales is willing to threaten future of the Coalition Government over koalas, where is the resistance in our political parties to the threats to our basic rights and freedoms visited upon us by the Covid lockdowns their own governments have implemented?

The Optics of an Aussie Police State

Written by

Victoria's police are very concerned about "optics".  Like all corporate institutions these days.  Well, it hasn't been a good week for Australia's police state.

The fear, even hysteria, among the population over Covid is unprecedented.  Yet there is a precedent for the strategies now being used by governments and others to generate the fear we are now witnessing.  We merely need to look back a few years to the great climate change scare to see the parallels.  Indeed, it might be argued that climate change was the perfect dress rehearsal for Covidmania.

Melbourne Lockdown: The Police State Downunder

Written by

Victoria is now a living hell of Covid Fascism, as the vicious lockdown continues.  Yet the people of Victoria seem to think this is all a good thing, or at least a necessary evil.  This is what life in Victoria is like now.

At a time of epic fails by political leaders, oppositions, bureaucracies, and, alas, churches, we need an epic fail by our media like a hole in the head.  Yet that is what we have now.  Amid all the Covid disasters, our media have lost the plot.  They are not doing their core jobs of speaking truth to power and calling out stupidity, and we are all the poorer for it.

They have taken away my Lord

Different Horse, Same Jockey
