By J Bond, published 16/9/2020

Imagine committing the crime of coming home to help family, and return to your country of origin to find you will be jailed, without exception, for a minimum of 15 days in a 1 room cell.

I suppose we could all imagine it, but most of us are content to stay in our own country. People who want to live elsewhere, and return when it suits them, are the only ones affected by all this 'totalitarianism'. Not much good being a tenth generation Australian (as claimed) if you don't actually live here.

Imagine coming home from a country where the virus is less under control, and picking up the virus in the days before you fly out. Imagine also that, since you feel okay, authorities let you through, to go home to your loved ones and friends who all fly and drive in from the regions to see you, to go shopping and clubbing together in your old favourite places, to take your relations' kids to the pictures, maybe sharing ice-creams after.

Gosh, wouldn't it be luverley ? But, is it possible, without getting hysterical about it all, that one of your rellies then travel backs home, through a number of country towns, staying at a couple of motels on the way, and back to their job at the local hospital, and to their circle of friends and relations. A few days later, that person starts to feel crook, waits for it to go away, then gets tested.

But wait a minute, haven't you and that other person got the right to be free citizens, to go wherever they like, see whoever they like ? They didn't cause this virus, so why should they pay the penalty of incarceration ? Just because you may have a 'little flu', does that mean that you have to be locked up in some tiny 2m x 2m cell, with no window, water or toilet facilities, and only one meal of bread and water each cday, as if you are a criminal ?

But isn't it everybody else's responsibility, if they don't want to get the virus, to mask up and keep a social distance - it's not yours or mine ? Why should it be this particular citizen's responsibility to watch out incessantly and obsessively for the health of someone else who recklessly mixes with whoever they like ?

Isn't hype and hysteria fun ?

Joe I have a question? In the past when was this nonsense imposed on us? I was a kid in the 1950's Polio epidemic where every school had a few survivors (Calipers or wheelchair), 1950's Flu killed over a million and 1960's flu killed over a million. So many teachers that they talked of school closure but after a World War most people would have laughed of such a cowardly action.
This Covid is just the new common cold, a disease that has assailed us since we stood on our hind legs. Now we lose our economy and our freedom thanks to jackboot Andrews.
So what is the end game Joe? Vaccine that is a very highly priced billion dollar waste of money on nonsense! As soon as one country opens up we will want to follow except some people who like to be bossed and bullied. Bed wetting masochists apart there is a head of steam building on this stupidity and lets cheer on the Trump victory. Yes Joe I said that just to fire you up lol!

Jim,

You could be right - thirty million people with the virus (and that might be an under-estimate) and nearly a million deaths - maybe that's nothing unusual year after year in terms of world deaths. And anyway, we all have to die some time. Just let us all know when you're about to go, and we'll write nice things about you ;). Or at least, try.

But on the other hand, Australia - indeed the world - have put up with far worse things than this pissy virus, even just in the last century. I remember when we couldn't wear Presley Purple or Sinatra Red socks to school, and teachers would be posted outside picture theatres to stop us from watching rock 'n' roll movies. Dreadful times. Where was our sovereign freedom rights then ? If all lives matter, so do those of ratbags, I'm sure you would agree.

Perhaps you're right, it's all a fraud, there's no such thing as this so-called 'Corona virus', and anyway it will all be gone, as if by magic, by next Easter. And surely it's better to have the economy open so that people can make money, even if there is the tiny risk of 'infections' ?

After all, Australia has lost only eight hundred people to this so=-called virus - or that's what they want you to think, that it's the virus. And obviously, any so-called 'vaccine' is just a ploy for Bill Gates to fit us all with nano-chips so that 5G and the Chinese can monitor our every move. It's all a communist plot anyway, why can't everybody see that ?

If you're reading this, so can they, so I'm probably already dead.

Joe
