Despite governments all over the world telling us that the only way out of Covid restrictions is mass vaccination (with a non-approved gene therapy that has not completed it’s stage 3 trials), we now know that this is impossible, as the so called vaccines do not prevent the spread and have possibly created the infamous “delta” variant and will create future vaccine resistant variants..
Endless re-vaccination with endless boosters while keeping restrictions or using “vaccine” passports are the government sponsored consequence. And while many perceive this as a threat, the fact remains that these measures are not enforceable, not in the short term and certainly not in the long run. The virus will always get out.
Modern Medicine cannot stop the spread of a respiratory virus. And neither can politicians.
A year ago we all knew that the only way out of the pandemic is herd immunity, which is why the original lockdowns were about “flattening the curve”
Then, as the possibility of a vaccine became tangible, the lies started. Unreliable PCR tests, useless mask and social distancing rules, people that died with Covid rather than from Covid, and most of all the political and media suppression of drugs that work like hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin.
The reason is, vaccines are big business and they are an even bigger business when every man , woman and child on this planet will have to get the jab indefinitely.
Here in Victoria, we have had the most weeks of lockdown anywhere in the world (About to enter week 35, which is more than 6 months overall, not counting mask mandates and other ineffective bullshit). Most of last year’s lockdown of Melbourne was in pursuit of a virus elimination policy (whatever happened to flatten the curve?) UNTIL we got a vaccine. Another goalpost has been shifted now, because although most at risk people had their shots early, now it’s suddenly about EVERYBODY getting the jab.
It is therefore no surprise, that Victorians, especially those under 40, who are at least risk form the virus, are getting “sick”, of the restrictions. They have lost complete faith in their government who has lied to them for 17 months and who are now saying”If you just stay home, we will open up”. Yeah, sure, tell me another..
Young people are now saying to the government “You are always going to find another reason to lock us down or force us into restrictions, no matter what we do, so why should we comply ? The result is mass protests that will continue and grow, as well as secret gatherings and street parties, not to mention the ridiculous “singles bubble” or the “partner bubble”, which cannot be enforced and have been “misappropriated” from the beginning. Sure, there are (sadly) dobbers, but they can only dob after an event, by then it’s too late and the superspreader event has already occurred.
The result: the virus will continue to produce mystery cases and therefore eternal lockdowns and eternal border closures by governments that have painted themselves into a corner with their unrealistic policies.
Hopefully people are waking up while this house of cards is falling down all around them . Now an increasingly desperate Dan Andrews has brought back the dreaded curfew between 9pm and 5am, as if that will stop increasingly popular street parties. Every so called health measure the government has implemented has been completely useless. What good is a lockdown if it only kicks the can down the road ? Some us us could see this trainwreck coming a year ago, some people can see it now, others will wake up next month or at Christmas. Most will wake up eventually .
This only stops when we say no.
Melbourne has been plunged into another lockdown to ward of the spread of coronavirus. In a positively dystopian display of force, the police and the army have been deployed to form a ring of (blue) steel around metropolitan Melbourne, while drones and number plate recognition are used to catch trespassers into country Victoria or worse, NSW.
Chairman Dan is seen on TV urging people to stay home and follow the rules, which amount to nothing less but a kind of home imprisonment.
Have we learnt nothing from the previous 10 weeks of lockdown?
Lockdowns don’t work. Anybody who believes they do is a delusional fool.
What they do , is kick the can down the road while taking a away people’s liberty and running the economy against the wall.
After 10 weeks of lockdown combined with international border control and hotel quarantine , things were looking up in Victoria, but it was only a small window of reprieve. It turned out that while police was busy fining people for fishing or leisure driving, the hotel quarantine for incoming travelers had been mismanaged and the virus got out into the community.
One of the reasons lockdowns don’t work is that people override the rules. The police can not be everywhere and fine everybody. They would be especially reluctant to interfere in some migrant communities where aggressive behavior is common.
They claimed it was impossible to fine the BLM matter protesters, all 10 000 of them who flaunted the rules of social distancing.
Now the “authorities” believe they can contain Melbourne (just like they thought they could contain a few postcodes), but it’s only a matter of time until the virus leaks out into the surrounding countryside and a full statewide lockdown will probably follow in 2 weeks time (and that’s optimistic, it may be less than a week.)
Even if the virus does not leak it will require too many police resources to stop people from leaving Melbourne’s enormous metropolitan area.
And then what? We go for 6 weeks or possible longer as Dan Andrews is already threatening?
Why does the government not understand that we cannot have infinite lockdowns to save a few people at the expense of millions?
Lockdowns don’t work, not only because we can never rely on everybody to do the right thing, but because even when we weld people into apartments, the virus still exists somewhere in the world and will find another way in.
The only way this ends is by reasonable social distancing measures, banning mass events (with huge fines for organizers) and protecting the vulnerable while allowing the virus to spread slowly among the young Working from home and online schooling are also good options for stopping the spread.
It’s ridiculous to say that children are harmed by not attending school. Humanity survived for centuries without mandatory schooling and people still manged to learn and develop.
Children still need to socialize, but a ban on mandatory school attendance is necessary to protect vulnerable parents and grandparents. School could remain optional for those who want or need it.
The young adult population are the ones least likely to be affected by the virus. They are also the ones who are most negatively affected by lockdown and resulting job loss and isolation.
They will rebel and flaunt the rules, thereby causing the virus to burn itself out among them and creating a herd immunity scenario that will allow us all to move on.
They will be the ones to save us from ourselves because they will be forced to save themselves from politicians and their misguided and misinformed draconian measures.
