New rules passing in the Australian state of Victoria could see “conspiracy theorists” and those “suspected by health authorities of being likely to spread the virus” detained in quarantine centres, according to The Age
The rules are amendments being added to the Omnibus (Emergency Measures) Bill, which was first passed back in April.
The proposed detention would last “for the period reasonably necessary to eliminate or reduce a serious risk to public health”.
To translate that from bureaucrat into English: it means as for long as they want, or can get away with.
Legislation with this kind of vague verbiage is always a red flag, but then Victoria is currently over-flowing with warning signs of this kind.
VICTORIA – THE WORLD’S FASCIST TEST RUN?
Maybe you haven’t been following exactly how bad things are getting in Australia – and most especially Victoria – but they have essentially aggressively seized their opportunity to create a fascist micro-state. A social Petri dish, in which to culture some tyranny.
They have declared both a “state of emergency” AND a “state of disaster” for a disease which has killed fewer than a thousand people in 9 months across the entire country.
For a sense of perspective, in 2018 over three times as many people died of influenza, and the same number again committed suicide.
As of right now Australia has just 16 cases of coronavirus classified as “severe”.
The situation in Victoria is terrible, but it’s not much worse than here in the UK, or the US or many other countries around the world. People need to resist it, non compliance and non-conformity have never been more important.
We’re in a grip of a fascism pilot scheme, and the only way to stop it is to see it and say it.New rules may allow Australian police to detain “conspiracy theorists”
