OF course, the spin is that “new cases” are flattening and that’s the main thing. But suppression-by-flattening is an unsustainable delusion. COVID-19 cannot be defeated without a permanent Nazi state (and the destruction of everybody’s life and livelihood). The cost isn’t worth it now – and wasn’t worth it six months ago. Australia’s entire coronavirus philosophy is founded on dumb panic and sustained by nothing more than a combination of pride and fear of the truth. The fuel for maintaining the delusion is the media’s weird enthusiasm for pandemic totalitarianism and the medical establishment’s near autistic hubris. Here is Brett Sutton speaking yesterday – as though Australia and the humans living here are merely a nerd’s science experiment:
“We” – meaning these well-paid boffins – have also killed hundreds of people by discouraging them away from hospital EDs or blocking them from life-sustaining surgery; or they have simply destroyed their mental health. Probably thousands more will die as a direct consequence of health officialdom’s contempt for society.
