As described in my previous post, I won't be writing much here anymore, however I wanted to jump into this thread at least once since things are really heating up down under with all the unethical mandates coming out, visible police brutality, the length of lockdowns setting world records, etc.

Recognition and thanks


Big shout out to Gazza for his efforts including:
  • Being involved in offline resistance to tyranny
  • Reporting on his own real-life experiences in real time
  • His righteous, principled drive for freedom, bodily autonomy, transparent governance, and more
  • Supporting fellow Australians
  • Being open to engaging with RVF members offline
@Gazza, I salute and pray for you mate

Additionally, big props goes out to @PixelFree for his tireless work behind the scenes. Champion.

I thank members such as @fiasco360 @GuitarVH and others for their words of support. The social pressure against us is immense, so all words of encouragement are welcome.

I thank members who support and chat with me privately - you lads know who you are.

Some quality control



A few quick comments on some unhelpful posting behaviour that is rare albeit persistent here:
  • RE: Insults to the person and attacks on the plans of those who are discussing action, yet without providing feasible alternatives-> Saying "you don't get it, idiot, protests don't work" (paraphrasing a banned poster) or "you are legitimizing this new normal" (quoted from above) - this isn't helping anyone. It sounds nothing like support, and more like pride talking under the cloak of 'advice'. It would be better to have some workable solutions up your sleeve before your bash someone else's plans.
  • RE: Giving direct advice without experience or knowledge of area-specific workplace regulations -> This speculative, theory-based advice can be counterproductive, as workable ideas in one area may not work in another. For example in the quote above, the suggested tactic in summary seems to be "avoid resistance, wait until you get fired". Aside from the short reference to getting employment benefits, this lacks any evidence to justify why this strategy is likely to be effective, under what circumstances this strategy can work, and what industrial laws can be invoked in pursuing this. One workable tip for autonomy-loving Australians that is based on factual information, is to consider taking sick leave - for up to 3 months - before they can fire you [See FWO page: Long periods of sick leave].

Closing remarks


Belief in an all-powerful globalist elite, while based on substantive evidence, is also a flawed theory. They are NOT all-powerful. They are only human. And your actions, no matter how small, can make an impact. Focus on what you can control right now.



P.S. remember to take a break from the gloomy news and protect your precious spiritual and mental health - get in some regular nature therapy, workout with a mate, call your family interstate, pray, and stay connected.

It's been 10 months since this post and I have to say it has been a hard road out here in Australia.

As linked to a range of complications relating to (a) the lockdowns and restrictions on freedoms and movement, (b) vx mandates for travel, entertainment and employment (c) the incessant fear-mongering by governments, "public health" officials, the media and others, (d) my commitment to making my own decisions regarding personal medical procedures (and more), I have been through the following:

- Reduced opportunities for healthcare interventions for non-covid-related conditions,
- Ongoing stress, anxiety, insomnia and isolation, and thus,
- Worsened health conditions

And,
- Reduced opportunities for rest and recovery
- Destruction of my primary career, which I had been working on for over a decade
- Loss of employment in a superb job which, again, I had been working to achieve for over a decade
- Social alienation from friends and even immediate family
- Logistical and mandate-based inability to see friends and family
- Reduced opportunities for socialising and developing friendships
- Reduced opportunities for finding a wife and having children
- Clashes with select church members
^These primarily relate to being vx-free, and secondarily relate to questioning authorities, not wearing a mask despite having a valid exemption, etc

And,
- Destruction of my long-term relationship in which I was planning marriage and children
^This was mainly lockdown related

All that said, this is what I still have, or have found in the meantime

- Increased faith in God's Providence
- Increased connection with my church community
- Strengthened resolve that I will not bend to the madness of crowds
- Strengthened knowledge and confidence in my self-reliance
- Autonomy over my own decisions and bodily control
- Increased satisfaction with the simpler things in life and gratitude for what I have
- A stronger network of brothers and sisters who share my values, joys, and concerns (including RVF members such as @Gazza, @Bizet, LDN, and several others), and increased confidence in those who have stuck by me
- Successful transition to a secondary career, and given the extreme circumstances of vocational discrimination, a relatively strong professional network
- Joy in a new connection with a lovely young lady - a kind, nurturing, respectful soul who has Faith and so far seems like a strong wifey prospect
- Healing of some previously-strained family relationships
- Commencement of more travel opportunities

The higher ups in my company are STILL asking me for my exemption/vax (through my manager). Every single time I have said no vax, no exemption do with that information what you will, yet they come back every time.

It's interesting because this time seemed a little sterner but words chose carefully. i.e: "employees need to meet our policy" my manager was talking about people don't being "dropped" if thye dont meet the policy. lol whatever that means.

Why would they think I would ust change my mind now after all of this. Calling their bluff I dont think they really want to fire anyone espeically a top performer and it would be interesting to see the legal minefield if they do.

Just before I was dismissed from my job back in October last year, I was warning people that it wasn’t so much about the NUMBER of employees that the company was going to lose, but more about the QUALITY of those workers and the skills that they possessed that would cripple the company (and it has). This may go a long way towards explaining why employers are nervous or reluctant to sack staff nowadays. They’ve seen the damage it’s caused over the past 9 months or so.

A big thumbs up to the Aussie brothers here. When I felt sorry for myself, I've thought of you as an example of how it is done under duress. You'll never get an earthly victory parade. At best, your countrymen will quietly admit you were right. The worst may still come. Either way - well done, "Mate." God bless you.

What is also a "self own" is that most divisions in major corporations can only onboard a certain number or percentage of new hires externally. They would otherwise have to rely upon internal transfers within the company to fill any requirements as a result of staff turnover.

In my experience, the maximum new intake allowed per financial year is typically around 20% of the current team per year.

If a typical division has an average staff turnover of 10% per year, that is typically the best case scenario. For most divisions in recent years pre-2019, the turnover has been closer to 20% plus of total staff per year, with an increasingly smaller intake to replenish, resulting in a smaller team overall. This trend is a "mass layoff" in all but name over a longer timeframe.

^ This is why we have things like the "societal decay" thread. You can't lose the most skilled, problem-solving, independent thinkers in any organization without a price. They are not easily replaced - through external hires or internal promotions. So trains go off track, oil terminals catch fire, and food processing plants grind to a halt. Highly skilled tradesmen are often proud, independent thinkers. They are best left alone to solve their task, so that attracts independent men - the type that decline funny new-fangled vaxxines. They can't be replaced easily by the assistant/tool-pusher, even if management thinks they can.

Firstly, thank you for posting this. Honest, genuine, reflection is worth a lot these days, in amongst the darkness and lies. It's good to read this kinda stuff.

There's probably a lot of us here that have been strengthened by not bending against the weight, @Gazza for sure.
I was almost forced out of my career, but saw the writing on the wall months earlier, and made plans for the future knowing this was coming. I'm better off now, stayed true to what I believed was a lie and still in the same career so found a better employer during the chaos and also knowing what was ahead, though obviously still cautious about the future and still somewhat stuck in this crap. Hard to plan anything these days.

like you said, self reliance is the key these days but also knowing your True identity through God.
Otherwise, it doesn't matter much at all.

Did you end up moving away from your location and starting again?

God bless you brother.

Credit to @Steady Hands for sharing his story. It strongly resonates with me and my recent experience.

For most folk among us, being unjabbed ostracises us from our friends, colleagues and associates, as well as our extended families. I have even had my own mother tell me to "stop being a big girl and get the jab" when I resisted the call to do so.

I am the only person in my extended family who is unjabbed. It is isolating at times, though I have friends in the same boat as myself. I also have other friends who are fortunate to have their wives and extended family support their stance in remaining unjabbed.

Our employment and our very well-being has been threatened as a result of the barrage of mandates from governments. The accumulated mental load from attempting to keep abreast of the daily rule changes has dulled the thinking of many.

For those for whom preparedness and chance did not favour them in 2019, have significantly curtailed levels of opportunity moving forward to attain desirable outcomes for personal relationships, life goals, etc. As a result, it can create intense feelings of despondency of believing that all the good things have already been taken.

That establishing common ground with other people has become that much more difficult.

Your faith in fellow man is questioned after witnessing people succumb to getting the jab.

Having to walk away from dates as soon as they start spouting drivel on how the COVID response "kept us safe" and dismissing any resistance to the jab regime.

Whilst I have been tested during these times, I can say hand on heart that I don't regret the stance that I have adopted in this matter. I have forged stronger ties with people more on my wavelength. The whole COVID saga has been a catalyst for me to make changes in my life with a pronounced sense of urgency. As a result, I have commenced study to work in a different field to my current one. It has also allowed me to overcome my fear of failure and to take steps to achieve the success that I am capable of.

Some really good stories on this thread. I think we all intuitively knew the jab mandates were completely wrong on every level. It took a lot of courage to say no. I know I almost broke at many points. Thankfully my wife was also against them. The comment above that said - take the jab you big girl- when in reality saying no took the guts. I was lucky as I ran my own business - thankfully not in Victoria so I did not have financial pressure to get jabbed. Interesting I know that c. 30 percent of my staff have had no jabs. I never asked but we discuss informally. Amazing what happens when people do not have their financial well-being threatened. Anyway. I guess the hands have now been dealt and we can all sit back and watch what happens from here on in. I highly doubt anyone on this forum regrets not taking a jab but I am pretty sure many jabbed sincerely regret that decision. As the negatives side effects are harder to hide that number will grow. If the fertility issues that are coming out are true- boy are we in for a wild ride. May you live in interesting times and all that!

Had to shake my head at the noise from the radio the other day.

They had a government advert promoting the infection injection booster shots. With all manner of insidious rhetoric twisting the context of boosted.

Then a few mere moments later. News about a rise in heart attacks or an increase in 'SADS' or some such...

I wanted to scoff & mock overtly.
Yet I knew there was little to be gained as 99% of the people I work with have had at least two injections...

It was too late for all of them...

I was saying much the same thing. I was pretty much the lynchpin of getting things done at my workplace, and the only one there who refused to get the jabs. Just been kind of coasting since January, but now I'm looking for something even the container monkey type laboring jobs are asking for proof of vaccination. Danistan government is supposedly creating incentives for employers to have all their employees 3x jabbed.
Pretty sure I'll find something eventually, but I don't trust any of the institutions here any more. Unions and employers too.

Currently there is a TON of work for handymen/cleaners. I’ve just bought an old ute (truck for our friends from the USA). Going to get myself an ABN and start working for myself. My hours, my pay rate, my body, my choice!
