The Covid pact : Comments

By Paul Collits, published 19/5/2021

One of the enduring conundrums of Covid madness has been how did it all come to pass?

The lockdowns, loss of freedom of movement, attacks on free speech, the threat of a 'covid passport' advent of a group of Secret Police in South Australia threatening businesses and customers over the QR/sign in surveillance - all " came to pass" because Australians are too dumb and lethargic to do anything about the fact we are transitioning from a democracy to an autocracy.

Australia is becoming more like China everyday day, without any help from China. Although the author suggests that "the Chinese pull(ed) off the destruction of the Western economy and way of life", they could have had no influence if they didn't have the cooperation from the enemy within: politicians (particularly the Victorian sort), academics, businesseses benefiting from trade, and Leftist activists

As always, most Australians are getting what they deserve, and the rest of us have to wear it. All concerned Australians can do now is, keep our mouths shut, not attract public attention, and take the 'Benedict Option'.

We don't want Big Government protecting us; we need protection from Big Government.

This is horse manure? Not rational thinking, Paul.

People like you, if given your way, would have us follow India and the US with a hopelessly overwhelmed health system and the prospect of mass graves?

That said, reopening the borders are now in prospect far earlier than envisioned due to 2 new therapeutics in play.

One, an injection that seems to have little if any side effects, that is administered as an injection that kills 99.99% of all coronaviruses, variants, including the common cold.

The other a nasal spray that provides significant protection against covid-19 and also doubles as an anticoagulant.

Left to me, get as much production happening of both as is possible and shipped to all points around the globe. At a price, the richer nations could afford to in effect, subsidise it for those who need subsidised prices to make it universally affordable for all!

This is not a time for the usual prevarication, just action that represents our best option for getting the borders open and the economy turbocharged on the back of MSR thorium and energy prices as low as 1 cent PKWH.

Don't just do something real, stand there flapping your jaws, Mr smirk, why doncha? TBC.

81 years old, three heart attacks & a resultant shortness of breath, I am one of the high risk folk.

However if they just free up access to the full range of Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, Quercetin & Budesonide to be used as a prophylactic of my choice, under my doctors advice, I would be happy to see the borders opened, to some extent. Perhaps the virus with the side effect of stopping immigration has done us a long term great benefit.

If opening the borders means a return to rampant immigration, lets keep them shut for a decade or 2 to give us a chance to absorb the motley lot we have admitted over recent years. Then there's the foreign university students destroying what was once a great system.

On second thoughts, lets keep the international boarders shut tight. We can live without foreign university students & tourism, incoming & outgoing, & be a better place for it.

Yes Hasbeen, we don't need to open our borders to people, over the dead bodies of the elderly and disabled, just ramped up manufactured production we can export to the world.

Starting with massively increased green steel and aluminium. Then raw energy generated here and exported by graphene cored undersea cables.

Much of which could be produced by co-ops that just put our own people to work in jobs they are qualified for.

With our energy input costs massively reduced, we can restart the local car industry as fully electric and able to compete with all comers, on the world market.

Energy as cheap as 1 cent PKWH will allow quite massive desalination projects and the opening up of new food and fibre growing provinces!

And power up the new rapid rail that could be self-funded with the right funding paradigm via the later resale of resumed and rezoned land. Albeit to the roars of indignation of the white shoe brigade and their corrupt pollie mates?

Thereby massively reducing overland transportation costs! Which just has to support massively increased export production every which way! Along with jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities in overdrive!
