We’ve already burned down our entire civilization as a response to this mild flu, the present economic collapse promising to put the West back a century.
So we might as well go full “collapsing civilization” and allow our leaders to implement brutal tyranny.
It’s really the only thing likely to be able to hold society together at this point anyway.
Australia should make any coronavirus vaccine compulsory for its 25 million citizens bar medical exemptions, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Wednesday, wading into a heated ethical debate.
After reaching a deal for the country to manufacture a “promising” vaccine being developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University, Morrison said getting the jab should be “as mandatory as you can possibly make it”.
“We’re talking about a pandemic that has destroyed the global economy and taken the lives of hundreds of thousands all around the world,” he said, while stressing the government has not yet made a decision.
The Australian government estimates that up to 95 percent of the population would need to be immune to the virus for it to be irradicated.
“We need the most extensive and comprehensive response to this to get Australia back to normal,” Morrison said, after announcing the vaccine would be free to all Australians.
The coronavirus pandemic — which has killed more than 400 Australians — has coincided with a sharp uptick in online misinformation, speculation and opposition to vaccines — something experts have dubbed an “infodemic”.
Inject them forcibly against their will with a mysterious substance.
Watch their every move with drones.

Having already brought in some of the strictest Covid-19 restrictions in the world, Aussie police are well on their way to turning Victoria into an Orwellian surveillance state.
First the Australian state of Victoria declared a “state of disaster” and instituted an astonishingly draconian lockdown that mandated, among other things, masks outdoors everywhere at all times and granted the police the power to enter homes without a warrant.
Apparently, police in the city have decided they need to resort to tactics usually employed by the US Army to track down jihadis in the mountains of Afghanistan to catch people simply leaving their homes. Among the crimes these drones will be dispatched to try and catch people committing are such heinous offenses as going to the beach, not wearing masks, visiting playgrounds or using skate parks.
The drones can be flown up to a distance of 7km and have the ability to read vehicle number plates from a distance of 500 meters. Interestingly, this means that the drones will technically and legally be allowed to go further from home than Melburnians, who are under a strict night curfew and can only go up to 5km from their homes between the hours of 5am and 8pm, except for work and medical care. Otherwise they will be in breach of the curfew imposed by Victorian Premier Dan Andrews – newly nicknamed Kim Jong Dan – and can be fined nearly AU$5,000 (US$3,621). Repeat offenders face a fine of up to AU$20,000.
The drones will also be used to make sure people aren’t crossing the border into neighboring states, as that is yet another freedom Dan has seen fit to deprive his people of. He’s also deployed 2,000 military personnel to help to enforce virus-control measures.
Are we in Melbourne or China 🇨🇳?

As one exasperated Aussie put it on Twitter: “Are we in Melbourne or China?”
Once these police have established a use for these drones, what is to prevent them using them long after the time of Covid? Already videos have emerged online of cops being heavy handed in enforcing the mandatory mask rule. One particularly troubling video that started circulating on social media appeared to show a policeman choking a woman refusing to wear a mask, which hardly seems proportionate, or particularly wise given other recent events.
All of this has been brought in in a country that has had just 438 deaths involving Covid-19, less than half the number that died there of common influenza last year. To put that number in yet more context, in 2018 an average of 434 people died every day in Australia from all causes. Whilst every death is deeply sad for the victim’s loved ones, society and the economy cannot simply be stopped completely for the sake of safety. Australia needs to stop panicking and regain a sense of perspective.
“Perspective” is totally out the window.
We’re putting the pedal to the metal.
We’re going full on.
Australia is a look into the future we are all facing.
This is the end of the world.
