Leftists in Australia have pushed Covid tyranny to the brink of martial law, employing the military to suppress the population under the pretext of public health. Even the communist thugs who created the disease gasp at Australian authoritarianism:
Australians need permission from the federal government to leave the country—applications succeed about half the time—and Australia’s states throw up their borders against one another at the slightest hint of trouble. Residents of Sydney may leave their homes only if it is “essential,” and not stray more than six miles when they do.
Meanwhile, hardly anyone is dying of Covid in Australia.
Remarks a self-described “born-and-raised Sydney-sider” now living in New York:
I am now embarrassed to say I am from the country that locks up its citizens due to a tiny handful of cases caused by a comedy of errors with hotel quarantine, vaccine rollout and an insistence on “Covid zero” in the land where you are still more likely to be killed by the sun than by Covid-19.
I long for the day that I can visit my friends on Alcatraz, or even better, when they can leave their prison island and visit me on the outside.
If a nation would give up its liberty for anything, it will give it up for practically nothing.
