They ignore what's going on for the sake of being able to continue living their lives, heads comfortably in the sand.

    We know. That's why we don't like New Yorkers.

    Someone else in my position might feel insulted, but every time I go out for a drive I'm reminded I hate New Yorkers too.

    The news report says that Australia is considering implementing a scheme in which you would need many points of ID, as in identification, to register on social networks. Like using a bunch of captchas and two way authentication and shit. I can’t really answer the rest of your conjecture because it has nothing to do with the news report and my post.

    Anthony Colpo sent a letter to South Australia's chief health busybody, Nicola Spurrier, posing some direct and pertinent questions. Among other things, he asked her why she was not being straight about the relatively minor threat posed by COVID-19. He asked her why she was misleading people about the true nature of the so-called COVID 'vaccines,' and why she was ignoring the growing body of evidence showing they are not only useless, but counterproductive.

    Colpo is all over this mess and very entertaining. Worth a read:

    Captchas and 2FA are security measures for yourself to avoid getting your account hacked or to prove you're not a bot.
    This is about associating arbitrary points to a mandatory identification which brings your privacy and anonimousity to zero. Once this is enrolled, anything could be worth points.
    They already said in the news report that points can be subtracted based on good or bad behaviour.
    What's stopping them from giving people points for putting a like or sharing a certain post or taking points away for using certain words in a comment. They have been censoring people for almost 2 years now arbitrarily. This is just an excuse to get more information about the people they want to censor while creating a false sense of security for everybody else from something that only a very very small fraction of the population witnesses, like child pornography or online abuse. Just like covid. It's always the same bullshit story they use.

    So when you say this is actually a good thing for the world, I have a hard time understanding what you mean

    Colpo has this down. He writes a nice summary of the bullshit and then asks the tyrants "Why?"

    And the sheeple continue to obey. We are not worthy of liberty, or of a single life lost in its pursuit. I am deeply ashamed of us.

    I mean, how do you explain why this is tolerated, or what the government actually wants to accomplish by destroying its economy? Australia Calls in Military to Enforce Lockdown – Summit News

    I disagree in this sense: It’s an excuse for targeted sales. It’s the dominant driver. Political manipulations to include the reduction in freedom and privacy are a fortunate consequence. A gift for the left.

    Same for COVID.

    Colpo is very good at this:

    "If you are at, um, Adelaide Oval and the ball comes toward you, my, err, advice to you is to duck and just do not touch that ball!"

    COVID-19 has been incessantly portrayed as the deadliest and most virulent human-to-human transmissible virus in history, but according to you, when tens of thousands of humans are packed together in a stadium, the real threat is a wayward egg-shaped leather ball!

    Your bizarre comment, quite justifiably, attracted immediate and widespread ridicule. At a subsequent press conference, you and Marshall attempted to explain away your absurd advice, but succeeded only in further demonstrating why you are wholly unsuited to the role of Chief Public Health Officer. In your disjointed response, you told the press:

    "I'm not a football player and whenever a ball comes towards me, whatever sort of ball, whether it's a basketball or a football, my inclination is to duck ... regardless of COVID, this ball has been touched by many sweaty men out there on the field, just go and sanitize your hands before you start eating your chips."

    Heaven help the people of South Australia when this is the level of wisdom imparted by the state's penultimate health officer.

    Since when did your own personal aversion to balls constitute a sound platform for issuing public health advice? I believe I'm stating the perfectly obvious when I point out public health advice should be based upon the best scientific evidence available, not on someone's fear of wayward balls.

Too good-good enough to realize that all our science is just a cookery book, with an orthodox theory of cooking that nobody’s allowed to question, and a list of recipes that mustn’t be added to except by special permission from the head cook. I’m the head cook now. But I was an inquisitive young scullion once. I started doing a bit of cooking on my own. Unorthodox cooking, illicit cooking. A bit of real science, in fact.” He was silent.
    “What happened?” asked Helmholtz Watson.
    The Controller sighed. “Very nearly what’s going to happen to you young men. I was on the point of being sent to an island.”
    Just ordered the book after reading your post. Heard about it for a long time. Thanks for including this passage.
