The Covid Class gets furious when freedom fighters like George Christensen and others with spine and morals compare Covid totalitarianism with Nazi Germany and similar "papers please" regimes.  One recent example of the vitriol in print occurred in The Australian.  The journalist involved displayed all the typical attributes of someone without a leg to stand on.

OmiCON

In two years of Covid scams, surely the Omicron variant takes the cake.  Watch for the Covid class to double down on hysteria, panic and punishment, with boosters on top of  boosters, against a viral enemy that now appears impotent.

Professors Sans Frontieres

There have been a number of strategies to make everyone get the Covid jab.  Some offer carrots, others use sticks.  The othering of the unvaccinated has taken many forms, too, some of them nasty, others clueless.  Our low information professors are now entering the fray, much to their shame.

Jack the Low Information Insider

The Australian corporate media have been an arm of Government Covid propaganda these past eighteen months.  The Murdoch press has been at the forefront.  One of its prominent journalists has been the pointy end of the propaganda spear.  His name is Peter Hoysted.  He even gives himself a pseudonym.  He talks rubbish.

While it is difficult to know exactly what is going on in the Northern Territory, there is enough news emerging about which to be very worried.  With yet another mini-me dictator at the helm intent on pushing people around, absent any knid of serious crisis.  This article was written mainly for a British readership.

Many have written about the causes and consequences of the Covid tyranny, the "pandemia".  But we also need strategies for legitimate dissidence by the Covid sceptics and also for the Covid true believers who might, just might, be feeling a little queasy about the current direction of travel of the Covid State.

Vaccine Logic

There has never, ever been vaccine logic during the current pandemia.  There certainly isn't now.  While Victorians are grappling with new dictatorial powers seemingly about to be passed by its Parliament, the State to its immediate north has entered the vaccine twilight zone, with medical apartheid now extended indefinitely.

Heroes

Covid has thrown up heroes.  Don't expect them to be acknowledged as such by the Covid class.

Covid and Euthanasia

The NSW Parliament considers granting a right to assisted dying.  To the old and infirm.  We are killing them off already.

The Great Covid Panic

Three economists have written a cracking book on the Covid affair.  Gigi Foster is at the University of New South Wales.  She and her colleagues have sought to explain the madness of the past nearly two years.  The book should be required reading for those who value freedom and sanity.  A public policy master class.  It was an honour to review it.
