Lockdowns will never stop the virus, nor is the 'pandemic' tantamount to lockdowns. The media and the WHO are mainly responsible for this chaos, but so are those who have been milking the opportunity for all it's worth...

I think you're right. I was just talking with my Dad, who's in regional Victoria, and said Melbourne is akin to a police state. Roadblocks with the police and Army, having to put down your name and address any time you go into a restaurant, fines galore, queues at supermarkets. Anyone who died in the Eastern Bloc before 1990 and came back to life might not notice the difference.

These are stage 3 restrictions, but the state government is considering stage 4, whatever that means. Probably compulsory masks and whatever else they can come up with.

I worry about my Dad, as he's in a high-risk group and in his mid-80s and I have no idea if and when I'll get to see him again, but he's remarkably philosophical about it. Yet a protective medicine that he could take to minimise his chances of developing serious symptoms is being severely restricted by the Australian government, probably because they'd prefer to vaccinate everyone instead. It's a crime, but nobody will be brought to account.
