UPDATE – 29/03/20 | The Australian Defence Force (ADF) has now been deployed to help enforce mandatory quarantine orders and to carry out compliance checks on ‘suspected individuals’.
Thousands of Australians queued outside Centrelink offices around the country yesterday morning in scenes “unimaginable only weeks ago”, as the economic fallout from the COVID-19 saga continues.
The restrictions force all pubs, clubs, places of worship and gyms to shut, while restaurants and cafes will be restricted to take-away and home delivery only. Shops and pharmacies will also remain open.
Following the press conference last night, employers in multiple sectors across the country scrambled to develop plans to either support or stand down hundreds of thousands of workers.
The moves come after thousands were seen disobeying their master’s orders, with Scott Morrison saying the measures were to prevent people from failing to adhere to social distancing rules.
“What happened at Bondi Beach yesterday was not OK and served as a message to federal and state leaders that too many Australians are not taking these issues seriously enough,” Morrison said.
Let’s not forget that Australia, as a nation and people, remain inherently skeptical of their governments. In December 2019, The Australian National University‘s election study revealed trust in government has reached a record low. People just aren’t buying it anymore.
Those who dispelled the fearmongering and continued to live their lives are now being punished for their actions. The COVID-19 Compliance Drill, and subsequent economic and techno-surveillance remodelling that is likely to occur, will continue to play on the defiant nature of Australian culture.
Will this lead to martial law? No doubt, as the country begins to crumble by design, new measures of enforcement will be brought in as a reactionary measure to the actions of those affected.
Interestingly, the NPC masses are simultaneously being trained to hate and even report individuals not adhering to various restrictive measures announced over the last week.
The scenes we are witnessing across Australia bare striking resemblence to themes discussed in George Orwell’s classic dystopian vision, Nineteen Eighty-Four.
Across the world, we are seeing an unpredictable economic slowdown imminent, and this is ultimately based on actions derived from information being fed through channels of centralized control. This is a common theme found in Nineteen Eighty-Four.
In the novel, Orwell’s point was much more than just Big Brother and the Thought Police. The story details how people themselves participate, wilfully, in the propaganda that wills their enslavement.
Think of Goldstein. He is the principal enemy of the state, according to the Party of Oceania (fitting). He is depicted as the head of a mysterious dissident organisation. He is only seen and heard on telescreen, and was conjured by the Ministry of Truth, the State’s propaganda department.
Like the threat of a fake virus, Goldstein is a fabrication of the state, used as a tool by the Party to stir up emotion in the citizens. Goldstein functions as a threatening, but ill-defined symbol, that the Party uses to keep citizens in line and prevent rebellion. Key word: ill-defined.
War rhetoric, like all stilted political language, is tailored “to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind,” as Orwell put it. So it is with the politicians, who are declaring ‘war’ to conquer COVID-19.
In this metanarrative, the coronavirus is a discrete, external challenge to Australians, and we must all ‘play our part’ to defeat it. We must all unify in a common cause.
Those of us taking ‘responsible’ measures — canceling engagements, homeschooling children, self-isolating, fearing for the health and well-being of everyone we know and everyone we don’t — are already acting as conscripts in a mass battle of deception.
Take the United States for example. “We’re at war with a virus,” Joe Biden said in Sunday’s primary debate. He was not alone. “We have to fight that invisible enemy — unknown, but we are getting to know it a lot better,” President Trump said on Tuesday.
“One day we will be standing up here saying, well, ‘We won!’”
Indeed, there’s something subtly satisfying, something that feels necessary, in the urgent call for a mass mobilization against a novel communicable disease. The enemy is ‘invisible’, just like the ideology of ‘terrorism’, and thus can continue as long as the script writers see fit.
We know how ‘war’ operates. Why do the masses believe this time will be any different?
“The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous.
Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation.
The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact.”
The mission of perpetual war for superpowers in Orwell’s novel is to justify psychological and physical control over their populations, to keep their people busy, fearful and hateful towards the ‘enemy’.
The perpetual war also serves as an excuse for a nation’s failings and shortcomings. The economy, the labour force and industry are all centered around the new ‘war’. People live a miserable existence with poverty and no hope of improving their standard of living.
As measures continue to increase and the narrative becomes vastly greater, anybody who questions the bringing upon of mass vaccinations, forced self-isolation or even social unrest, will be labelled a ‘public health risk’ that will danger the livelihoods of those around them.
Will you be labelled a ‘terrorist’ in the future for questioning this grand narrative? The story is increasing in significance with each passing day.
‘RED ZONES’: SUBURBS ARE NEXT?
The picture so far looks like this: Domestic travel is being restricted, as state borders begin to close and each individual government begins to shut off all non-essential services. Job losses from Australia’s coronavirus shutdown will be ‘devastating’, according to reports.
As history has shown, unrest in society can almost inevitably lead to chaos in lower socio-economic locations that are already living pay-to-pay. These are the faces of the cancelled economy.
Could these international examples paint a picture of what is to come for Australia? To examine, we must look at the language being used by the federal government in recent announcements.
Political leaders have hinted at suburb-by-suburb lockdowns, and are considering urgent and draconian powers allowing authorities to shut down so-called COVID-19 “red zones”.
This means state police officers would prevent residents from travelling to ‘less infected’ suburbs or areas.
So far, we have seen a state of emergency declared in multiple states, allowing each respective Health Minister to do ‘whatever is necessary’ to ‘contain the spread’.
According to reports, the National Cabinet, premiers and chief ministers are set to discuss how to best implement emergency restrictions like those adopted in parts of Europe and in Wuhan.
“We had scheduled our next meeting to focus on the issue of further and stronger measures to deal with local outbreaks within state jurisdictions,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison said.
“We are bringing forward consideration of those matters to a meeting this evening”.
The dramatic national approach would likely be assisted by the federal departments of Health and Home Affairs, with Attorney-General Christian Porter warning the Commonwealth may need to use unprecedented quarantine laws to restrict the movement of people.
Not surprising, when climbing the chain of information, one will find most COVID-19 directives are being handed down by the United Nations and their Ministry of Health (WHO), who have been incrementally taking over Australia for decades and recently called for an overhaul of the world trade system to deliver Agenda 2030
A suburb-by-suburb lockdown not only intensifies further restrictions against various ‘threats’ in the community, but also continues to build the unfolding grand narrative of the ‘invisible enemy’.
Australians remain unaware that both are being used as a tool of deception to user in a Brave New World model.
Stay tuned for more as this situation unfolds.
