It is a small comfort to see the Austrians and Germans returning to their early 20th century Austrian painter scene defaults.
Perhaps, now that the mask has finally slipped, we can go back to watching old Faulty towers episodes without shame?
Perhaps, maybe, we can now mention the war?
Unless you have been living under a rock, you will no doubt have heard that Austria has now decreed that, from February, everyone must be vaccinated. With a press release, the government of that country has stolen from its citizens the most fundamental and inalienable human right of all… the sovereignty of an individual over their own body.
No doubt this will shortly be followed by similar measures in Germany, which has already followed Austria in placing those Untermensch, that refuse to “volunteer” to have an irreversible experimental medical procedure performed on them, under house arrest.
Alea iacta est. The Rubicon has been crossed, and by people whistling a merry tune as they went.
Yeah, I know this tune. Last time we danced, it was with a bunch of folks wearing Hugo Boss that thought forced medical procedures, and the state persecution of those seen as unclean, was a pretty neat idea. Fairly sure that particular dance ended in millions of deaths, and those responsible being executed.
The difference between sex and rape is consent.
Funnily enough, it is also the difference between a public health measure, and a war crime.
Take the vaccine. Don’t take the vaccine. That is a free choice that should be left to the individual. You can try and persuade, and provide good data, however no means no. So if, once all attempts to persuade someone to make the “correct” choice have failed, the intention was always to use force, then you are nothing more than a rapist who bought your victim dinner and flowers first.
It seems that, all over the world, the idea that you ever had a choice has just been an illusion.
Australia is building
concentration quarantine camps, and is now using military force to transport dissidents potential covid cases to them, against their will. The media, and large sections of the population applauding as they do so.
Then they came for the trade unionists, eh Australia?
In a recent interview, the diversity-hire-in-chief of New Zealand (a power mad lunatic, celebrated primarily for owning a particular set of genitals, rather than for competence) proudly announced the medical apartheid of her country… all with a smug shit eating grin on her face.
Then they came for the Jews, New Zealand, amirite?
If you don’t find all of this deeply unsettling, then you haven’t been paying attention.
Is it ok to call these people Nazis yet?
Can anyone seriously claim that the “slippery slope” argument is a fallacy after the events of the last two years? After all, we have gone, disturbingly quickly, from “two weeks to flatten the curve” all the way to concentration camps, state persecution of segments of the population, medical apartheid, and forced medical procedures.
Where next? Honestly, I don’t think that anything is off the table at this point.
More disturbing still, other countries, such as my own, are staying suspiciously silent on the matter. They’re seeing how this goes. Seeing… if they can get away with it…
I wonder what your hero Winston would have thought about that Boris?
But, leaders of the world… don’t think we won’t remember.
Don’t think there won’t come a reckoning.
History teaches us one thing more than anything else, and that is this…
The bill comes due, always.
