Military spotted on the streets

They are also bribing people with $1,500 AUD ($1,075 USD) 'no questions asked' payments for you and any close contacts (partners, friends, work colleaguse) if you test positive. This has obviously caused a huge spike in the number of cases, which they are using the justify the additional lockdown and mask wearing.
That's just shameless!

This is is Melbourne, and the issue arose out of our most left leaning state government bending rules for their team and fucking it up for everyone.

Sure geography helps, but in a population of 25 million, we have(had) 107 deaths until 3 big events in close succession.

I live in Western Australia, we effectively no longer have covid here and as of this week sporting stadiums were granted 50% capacity.

Victoria however, whilst worse that WA had a very mild occurrence then they allowed;

* A BLM protest (which another state has a courting ruling to postpone twice).
* Exception for mass gathering for Eid celebrations for Muslims.
* Our quarantine ruling is overseas returns must be immediately put into a 14 day hotel quarantine. Vic government by-passed all tendering and expertise measures, and hired the firm of a party donor that specialised in bar security. These bouncers were known to be having sex with people suspected to have covid, then they went back and infected their own, you guessed it, Muslim communities.

Now the city of Melbourne is running at higher new cases per day than the UK

I can now confirm you get paid $300 even if you comes back NEGATIVE.

Queues are around the corner at testing stations that were previously ghost towns.

Unsure. Good question.

I went past a testing centre today. The line is even longer and now wrapped around two corners. Insane.

Prepare to hear about the 'huge number of cases' in Victoria, Australia now. They have already been seeding the idea on the news that it's spreading out of the city and into the regional areas.

You have to wear masks when outside? All the time? Seriously why do people take this crap?
If you don't wear a mask while going into a corporate store, they will ban you for life now.


I was getting into verbal fights all the time at the front of each store where I just walked pass the employee. Since they said it's a lifetime ban now and also calling the cops, it's the only reason why I started to wear a mask. I didn't see anyone not wearing a mask the first week except myself. Good to see people are being good slaves and giving up their freedom to Dictator Dan. All this bullshit is over a virus that kills as much as the yearly flu. HONK FUCKING HONK!

The state of Victoria, Australia has just entered the worlds strictest lock down.

We are at Stage 4 - no leaving your house without a mask, no more than 5km from your house (for the 1 hour of exercise allowed) and 8pm-5am curfew. Most small businesses closed, include barbers. Just supermarkets, liquor stores, drug stores pretty much.

6 weeks (for now...).

On day 1 of Stage 4, our state premier has already mentioned the words 'Stage 5'.

Laws have been re-written to allow verbal warrants over the phone to police to allow them to enter or seize property. That's right, the police can practically enter anyone's property at any time now because 'Covid'.

Military aren't super prevalent but have been seen unarmed patrolling popular walking tracks with police (groups of 4 soldiers + 2 police) issuing $200 mask fines and $1,652 breach fines.

Here are our cases (inflated by bribing people to get tested) vs deaths. Entire Covid nationwide deaths = 247.

FYI - in the month of Aug last year (2019) we had 100+ flu deaths (coldest part of our Winter).

Military checkpoints and military enforced quarantine in NYC.

Well - the lovely vaccines will be distributed by them as well.

They enacted militarized lockdowns only in some 3rd world countries, in Australia now and the US. Oh and China - great to be on that list as well.
 
That kind of actually makes sense. It also explains why the best time periods are those immediately following a revolution or other epochal change. It's essentially a reset button. I think this is the cultural equivalent of the tendency of legal complexity to increase monotonically. Like how Congress will make new laws, but almost never strike old useless laws from the books (usually what happens is selective enforcement instead). I think in a similar way, cultural complexity increases until it becomes an unmaintainable mess and you start to get countercultural forces that push back on that and people kind of revert back to moral anarchism (another way of saying that you get a boomer generation that raises kids without teaching them discipline, and you get the pantifa generation).
What Johnny said is objectively true. Juvenal, a Roman satirist in the 2nd century, wrote poems called "The City" and "The Women" that prove how little things change.
 

This about covers it.
If you are an Australian citizen or a permanent resident you cannot leave Australia due to COVID-19 restrictions unless you have an exemption. You can apply online but you must meet at least one of the following:

  • your travel is as part of the response to the COVID-19 outbreak, including the provision of aid
  • your travel is essential for the conduct of critical industries and business (including export and import industries)
  • you are travelling to receive urgent medical treatment that is not available in Australia
  • you are travelling on urgent and unavoidable personal business
  • you are travelling on compassionate or humanitarian grounds
  • your travel is in the national interest.
Interesting. Is this still in effect?

Mail to Victoria is also being opened to check for """items of concern to national biosecurity""". A CD I'd ordered from Western Europe came in today, with a note from the "Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment" in the package and a green seal saying "RELEASED FROM BIOSECURITY CONTROL" on the package where the so-called Department (really Soviet-style censors) opened it.
