Circles – Melbourne Covid 19 Retrospective Image#3
Circles painted on the grass of a Melbourne park to help groups have socially distanced picnics in October 2021. There was a limit of 5 “vaccinated” people from a limit of two households. Sounds like fun.
If you sat outside the circle you were sent to the naughty corner.

Melbourne had the most, the longest and the harshest lockdowns in the world. You could be fined for sitting on a park bench by yourself, you could be brutally arrested for walking outside your zone at the wrong time of day. At one stage even playgrounds were closed. All with the elusive and desperate attempt to get to Covid Zero.
Australia has lower death rate than most of the Western world, mainly because it was locked down for so long and the Omicron arrived , but at what cost? Did we really save lives or did we just shift the burden from the very old to the young ?

So now the word is going around in the Lamestream media that harsh lockdowns were a mistake that hurt young people and small business owners the most, as if that is some sort of revelation. The fact is, for once, you were better off on unemployment benefits, which effectively doubled overnight without the usual penalities . It was obvious that lockdowns would ultimately not hold back a virus, but only kick the can down the road, yet people were essentially imprisoned, if not in their homes, at least in their suburbs.
They were not allowed to work, go to school or socialise.
Anti lockdown protesters were smeared as “faar- riight ” conspiracy nuts and nanna killers. But they were right: Lockdowns were extreme government overreach and did nothing useful. Never forget those brave souls that took to the streets risking fines and being beaten by the pigs. September 2020 was only the beginning of this sad period in history.
