Abandoning the Australia that Abandons Liberty By James Reed
People are getting out of Australia, and who can blame them? We have seen from the Covid plandemic that there is no respect of the traditional values of liberty and more broadly, freedom, by the majority of our parliamentarians, and elites running our institutions, into the ground. They are all prepared to steam-roller those disagreeing with their Covid New World Order. This has created a great divide in Australia, more fundamental than the one previously seen between nationalists and globalists. It is between those putting individual liberty first, and those favouring state control, without limit. If the Covid freak-out did involve bodies piled 10-high in the street, these policies might be justified to some degree, but as numerous articles have pointed out, this mortality is simply not so, by the longest of shots. And by the totalitarian “logic” of the Australian Covid state, a hypothetical pandemic that was out of control in a city, could justify destroying the entire city, as in some zombie apocalypse movies. Only, Australia does not have nukes, and the Armed Forces, what there still are, probably could not destroy a city even if they wanted to.
“August saw the highest number of Australians apply to leave the country over the past year.
According to figures from the Australian Border Force (ABF), 37,979 applications were received from individuals hoping to leave the country, with 14,900 of those looking to be overseas for three months or more.
A large portion of the applications—12,347—were rejected. Australia is one of the few countries in the world that require residents to apply for permission before leaving the country.
The latest figures reveal that since January—when the ABF received 20,976 applications—Australians have continued looking for opportunities to leave the country.
“There are literally tens of thousands of people out there on social media and elsewhere saying we’re done, we don’t need this anymore,” Andrew Cooper, president of LibertyWorks told the Daily Telegraph.
“There’s definitely that feeling out there—people saying I’m done,” he added.
While Australia has enjoyed some of the lowest infection and death rates from COVID-19, it has seen state governments apply stringent health restrictions and domestic border closures at any sign of an outbreak.
In several instances, entire cities have been placed under lockdown—with minimal movement allowed—over the emergence of a single case.
Currently, Greater Sydney and Melbourne have tried to contain outbreaks of the Delta variant of the virus, with both cities under extended lockdowns and stringent health restrictions including mask mandates, curfews, and travel limited to within 5km of a person’s home.
Melbourne entered its sixth lockdown on Aug. 4, which was originally planned for seven days, after eight cases emerged in the city. The lockdown was extended after new cases continued to emerge, and is currently ongoing.
Meanwhile, Greater Sydney has been under lockdown since last June, which has been extended twice until Sept. 30.
Recent figures have also revealed the damage lockdowns are causing Australians with mental health support service, Lifeline Australia, saying August was its busiest month on record.
One in four Australians also reported knowing someone who had committed suicide in the past 12 months, according to figures from Suicide Prevention Australia, whose CEO Nieves Murray said increases in suicide occurred during periods of major social and economic upheaval.”
It is a bitter black pill to swallow, but even the deeply flawed Australia which we knew a few years ago, is now dead. From now on it is a battle of individual survival, in a land of ghosts of the Covid New World Order:
“During a press conference, Australian public health chief Dr. Kerry Chant remarked, “We will be looking at what contact tracing looks like in the New World Order.”
The comments were made during the same briefing in which Premier Gladys Berejiklian said that unvaccinated people would remain under lockdown indefinitely.
Chant was asked if “exposure sites” such as pubs would still be subject to contact tracing and shut down if someone who visits them tests positive for COVID-19 if and when Australia lifts its brutal lockdown.
“We will be looking at what contact tracing looks like in the New World Order…yes it will be pubs and clubs and other things if we have a positive case there,” said Chant, who is the Chief Health Officer for New South Wales.
The term ‘New World Order’ then began trending on Twitter as the social media giant desperately tried to assert that the whole thing was an ‘unfounded conspiracy theory.’
“Fact-checkers have regularly debunked claims connected to the conspiracy theory,” claimed the explainer. “The phrase is regularly used to times of change or cultural shift.”
In reality, the term has long been used by world leaders and other public officials as a signal that they are fully on board with the consensus to create a ‘New World Order’ – which in its simplest terms means an aggressive centralization of power at the expense of stripping liberties from the population.
It’s little surprise that the comment came from Dr. Chant, the stern-faced bureaucrat who has become notorious for her authoritarian pronouncements.
As we highlighted earlier this week, Chant said that COVID will be with us “forever” and people will have to “get used to” taking endless booster vaccines
Back in July, she ordered Australians not to talk to each other, even if they were wearing masks.
“Whilst it’s human nature to engage in conversation with others, to be friendly, unfortunately this is not the time to do that,” said Chant, adding, “So even if you run into your next door neighbor in the shopping center…don’t start up a conversation.”
The absurdity of this is so obvious that this example will no doubt be used for years to illustrate the mind of the bureaucrat.
