In the West, we are observing the development of a two-tiered society, where a new group of COVID untouchables are denied basic human rights and liberties. And this is all being done in the name of safety. You WILL be made “safe” – or else!
The Free World?
The West, once known as the “free world,” is becoming less free by the day, and the line between a liberal democracy and a totalitarian state is being blurred each passing week.
And much of this is happening as our political elites pretend they are just trying to “keep us safe” from the Rona.
Various health mandates – many of which lack any sound scientific or medical backing – are bringing in a new tyranny, and mandatory vaccines and vaccine passports are leading the way in this.
Indeed, as I have often documented, Australia is already well underway to becoming a two-tiered society, with a new group of untouchables being denied basic human rights and liberties.
Dictator Dan Andrews
Consider what our leaders are now dreaming up to punish the recalcitrants who dare to differ on these health mandates. Victoria once again is leading the way here with Dictator Dan Andrews making clear his intentions.
He has just come out telling us that anyone who dares to have any hesitancy about the vaccines will NOT be a part of the Victorian economy:
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has sent a clear message as to what the future of the economy looks like in the state, saying proof of double vaccination will now be the price of entry. “There is going to be a vaccinated economy, and you get to participate in that if you are vaccinated,” Mr Andrews said. “We’re going to move to a situation where, to protect the health system, we are going to lock out people who are not vaccinated and can be,” Mr Andrews said.
What Do Others Think of Us?
This shocking announcement has already caught the ear of overseas media outlets. Said one:
The Australian state of Victoria will “lock out” unvaccinated people from participating in the economy, Premier Dan Andrews has announced. Victoria is currently under draconian lockdown restrictions, with residents of Melbourne – who make up the vast majority of the state’s population – living under a 9pm to 5am curfew, forbidden from leaving their homes except to work, buy groceries, or get a Covid-19 vaccination. When the lockdown is lifted, Premier Dan Andrews said on Sunday, future restrictions will apply only to those who are unvaccinated….
Despite Andrews’ plan to beat Covid-19 by segregating the vaccinated and unvaccinated, current research holds that vaccinated people can still catch the virus and spread it to others, and case counts are rising while hospitalizations and deaths are still prevalent in even the most widely vaccinated countries worldwide. Though vaccines can reduce the risk of serious symptoms and death, their efficacy at that falls with time too. Andrews’ proposed “vaccinated economy” triggered outrage online, with critics describing the plan as “psychopathic,” Andrews as a “dictator,” and urging Aussies “do not comply” with the rules.
“Convert, or Starve”: The Two-Tiered Society
Here in Australia Rod Lampard rightly put it this way:
Domestic vaccine passports (which really only are a euphemism for mandatory vaccinations) are a vile, inhumane, ironic negation of humanity. “No jab, no job” is another way of saying “convert, or starve”. It is a “choice” between the slave master swinging the whip, or doing the slave master’s bidding. Forced medical procedures are the weapons of tyrants.
The problem isn’t just an arbitrary division between the “unvaxxed” and “vaxxed”, it’s the divide widened between those deemed “essential” and those “unessential.” In blunt terms: life worthy of life vs. “life unworthy of life.” The cruelty this will spawn has no limits.
The door that allows Government to get away with mandating medical procedures under threat of losing your livelihood, gives them the power to mandate the theft of your land, your house, your savings, your kids, and your property. Such is the dehumanising embrace of an arbitrary Us vs. Them – oppressor vs. oppressed – false dichotomy.
Church Certificate System
But it is not just Victoria that is leading the way in the tyranny sweepstakes. Consider what they want to do to Christians in NSW:
Churches in New South Wales will be required to use a vaccination certificate system once 70 percent of the population have received at least two injections of the COVID vaccine. From mid-October, churches will be permitted to return to in-person worship on the provision that they only host vaccinated-only services. Once the target is reached, places of worship must deny entry to any member of the congregation who is not fully vaccinated. Chris O’Keefe of 9News said the state government has not yet signed off on the roadmap, however, “this is the plan that is being worked on, and it’s likely to be signed off on this week.”
Wow! Why do I keep thinking that Stalin and Mao and Hitler would be so envious of what is happening in Australia?
This is utter insanity, and it cannot be called anything other than what it is: a sure path to full-tilt dictatorship. We really can use a few Bonhoeffers and Niemöllers right about now.
Faux conservatives, closet totalitarians
As if all this is already not bad enough, but it gets much worse with some of our so-called conservatives. Many are anything but when it comes to mandatory health provisions like vaccine passports.
They are so far away from any sort of genuine conservatism that they actually do not think such passports are a big deal. Indeed, many seem to have no problems with them at all! Incredible.
For example, many if not most of the commentators on Sky News have really lost the plot on all this, thinking they are somehow conservatives as they push decidedly un-conservative positions.
The other night Andrew Bolt was railing against anyone who dared to have the slightest hesitancy about getting the Rona vaxx, calling them “stupid” and “selfish” and the like. He did this just seconds after referring to WA Premier Mark McGowan as acting like Stalin.
He Calls Himself a Conservative?
Um, just who is being a Stalinist here? He wants anyone who for any reason has valid concerns about these vaccines to be treated as second-class citizens – or worse – permanently. He has no problems with that whatsoever!
And he calls himself a conservative? He needs to be reminded that a real conservative values freedom and the right to choose, champions limited government, and is very concerned about vital social goods such as civil liberties and human rights.
He has fallen for the oldest trick in the book – he has allowed the other side to divide and conquer conservatives. Bolt is clearly very upset with the lockdown insanity. Hey, guess what Andrew? So am I, along with millions of other freedom-loving Australians and conservatives.
Yet Bolt considers many of us to be the enemy!
Bolt should reserve his rage for the Statist tyrants who stole our freedoms away from us in the first place, instead of lashing out at those who have legitimate reasons for being hesitant about the jab.
Indeed, there are many millions of people the world over – including plenty of PhDs, scientists, medical personnel, doctors, and health professionals – who have all shown hesitancy here.
Yet Bolt says they are all stupid and selfish. One has to ask who is really being stupid here. He wants to get on with his life as a free man. So do I, Bolt.
Yet he is happy for people like me and millions of others to be part of a permanent health underclass, denied our basic rights and freedoms, because he thinks we are stupid and so we should suffer. Thanks for nothing Andrew – on this issue at least you are just as much of a leftist statist as anyone else.
No Compulsion, Seriously?
And when these folks claim there will be no compulsion in all this, they are utterly delusional. When most governments and businesses conspire to prevent people from travelling, going to school, getting basic goods and services, and so on unless they are fully vaccinated – complete with the never-ending “booster” shots – then our “choice” has been completely stripped away from us.
We ARE being coerced into getting the jab – either that or we will be forced to live as cave dwellers with basically zero human rights and civil liberties.
That is NOT freedom of choice. That is manipulation and coercion pure and simple – something all the modern human rights declarations and medical ethics statements strongly condemn.
Such tyrannical coercion is never something anyone claiming to be a conservative or a Christian dare support.
Listen to Those Speaking Out!
This video by a Qantas pilot was posted just hours ago (editor’s note: at time of writing) and already it has been viewed over 36,000 times (editor’s update: the video now has almost 500,000 views)!
This guy should be Prime Minister of Australia!
Please watch this and share it far and wide. We need more champs like this brave man.
