I don’t recognize the place anymore, let alone the insanity going on down under.
The "insanity" was quite localised, rather than national. Protests in Melbourne made international "news" for police brutality, using rubber bullets, et al, but the Freedom Rallies we've attended in Brisbane, the police were extremely supportive, and closed six city blocks for over two hours, so we could march, and the vibe from the spectators and the crowds, was that of cohesion and jubilation. The fact that the media didn't even bother turning up, tells the real story; they don't' want anyone to know.
I watched a cell phone video on YouTube a few days ago of a man trying to buy gas in Australia. The owner did not want to sell any until the guy scanned his Covid vax document. Just the fact that they rolled out that kind of technology in stores struck me as 'Biblical'.
Again, this isn't standard practice, anywhere I've shopped. I don't carry my phone, and won't download the app. Also don't bother with a mask, and if a store stops me at the door, I just walk off.
Regional centres are deciding themselves whether or not they want to comply with these fascist directives, masquerading as health measures.
Social media is alive and kicking, with state and federal "leaders" under constant attack, for pushing a narrative that doesn't apply to themselves (all politicians are exempted) and many people have stopped at just one jab, after bad side effects, and nobody I've spoken to, is keen on a "booster".
I do believe the covid cart is fast losing momentum, and many people are just not interested in the scare tactics, realising they've been duped, and the goal posts keep vanishing, or shifting weekly.
