Yesterday I posted a blog about how divided Australia is at the moment around Covid. I was alarmed this morning to hear that the NSW Government is preparing to divide the state of NSW even further.
The NSW Government is wanting to hit 6 million people vaccinated by the end of the month. Once that magic number is achieved, the Premier is promising to ease lockdowns BUT ONLY FOR THOSE VACCINATED. Let me put this plainly. If you choose, whether rightly or wrongly, to not be vaccinated – which is your right, in a free, democratic country like Australia, you will be kept under house arrest. Sorry, I meant lockdown.
This is a crazy development.
Now as part of this brilliant plan (insert sarcastic tone), there is no mention as to how long these unvaccinated people will be held in their homes. Could it be indefinitely, if its not, then why even suggest it?
I remember when ISIS took over Iraq they went through the towns and cities and put an Arabic N on some people’s houses. The N symbolized Nazarene – in other words, it was marking houses of people who followed the Nazarene, ie. Jesus.
Now I am not paralleling the NSW Govt with ISIS, I am just paralleling the systemic widespread categorizing of citizens. Do we get to a point, where we put a large UV on people’s houses so, everyone knows that in that house is a person who is unvaccinated?
I will say, I am not an anti vaxer, but am anti big brother controlling our lives.
Anyway, that’s just what I think
