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.

I'm Double Vaccinated - Get Me Out of Here

This week saw the surreal scapegoating of a visitor to Byron Bay who was authorised to travel there and who, testing positive for Covid, "caused" a lockdown.  The town's hopes for economic recovery were crushed yet again by Macquarie St fiat.  But there is more.  The woman was ... vaccinated!

The war on the non-vaccinated is being ramped up by the day, with vitriol, discrimination and malice.  But not with science.  There is no medical justification for this evil being perpetrated on our fellow citizens by governments in Australia, with a merry band of Pharma companies, corporates, bureaucrats, journalists and low information bloggers leading the charge.  Some of these claim, erroneously, to be "liberal".  It is a time of shame.

Losing Our Religion

Will Covid kill the Church?  It is a question that demands our attention.

The Zoran Strain

Australian politicians and our media are, relentlessly and without shame, creating Covid hate figures out of innocent people whose crime is simply getting on with their lives.  They are doing this to deflect and to feint.  And to cover up their own, wicked Covid crimes.

The Premier State's Vaccinator -in-Chief

The NSW Government, which trades under the name "liberal", is anything but.  Its Minister for Digital, Victor Dominello, works under the radar.  But his technocratic intentions are evil, for all of us.

Scotty from Astra Zeneca

The gloves are now off in the vaccine wars, with almost daily attacks on the non-vaccinated and threats of vaccine apartheid.  These attacks are without precedent in this liberal democracy of ours, and constitute the greatest attack on personal freedom in our history.  I will stop writing about it as soon as the attacks on us stop.

Covid and the McEwen Option

Once upon a time there was a politician called John McEwen.  He threatened to lead his Country Party out of a Coalition Government if the Liberals chose a leader he didn't like.  Today our very liberty is at stake.  Where are the modern day John McEwens willing to use hard power to make governments turn back?

The Idiot's Guide to Discrimination

Anti discrimination has a noble history.  Now there is a new form of discrimination that seems to be escaping the notice of the civil libertarians.  If we are going to discriminate against Covid superspreaders, let us at least practise rational governance.  Let us get our facts right.

The great unvaccinated hordes are not only selfish granny killers.  They (we) are trashing the economy as well.  Treasury says so.
