Australia has been in the news an awful lot lately and for all the wrong reasons. What was once a liberal democratic society has steadily descended into a full-fledged police state, with the Pacific nation seemingly returning to its roots as a former prison colony.
In an effort to “save lives,” the country’s political leadership has continued to implement some of the most draconian and tyrannical COVID restrictions among the Western world, with state governments determining what constitutes as a legitimate reason for Aussies to leave their homes. Any citizens caught protesting or violating these restrictions have often been subjected to violence from Australian law enforcement, who have seemingly become emboldened in their newfound role as government henchmen.
More insane police overreach in Melbourne. Guy put in handcuffs for being a few hundred metres from his home. Police say “he has no valid reason to be there” & “wasn’t wearing a face mask”. He says he was getting lunch & having a cigarette.pic.twitter.com/7iQvVDkUcg

While Prime Minister Scott Morrison recently acknowledged the nation’s “covid zero” policy is “not a sustainable way to live,” he has also said Australia will only reopen its borders and end lockdowns when 80 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated. Judging by the tyrannical nature of Australia’s COVID restrictions thus far, the government’s vaccination push looks to be just as satanic.
According to News.com.au, Australia’s national government is set to announce the implementation of “new ‘no jab, no pay’ rules for all health workers,” which is set to include “public hospitals, ambulance services, private hospitals, GPs, private nurse offices and consulting offices.” Pharmacies and private pathology centers will also be covered by the new requirements, as well as “student nurses and doctors on work experience placements and Defence Department health services.”
States have also begun to gin up rules for how they plan to segregate society based on vaccination status, with New South Wales (NSW) government officials warning that individuals who choose not to get the jab will lose their recently granted freedoms when the state lifts restrictions later this month.
“So there will be individuals in regional and rural NSW who choose not to be vaccinated who will lose their freedoms on October 11,” said recently resigned NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro.
“I think today is a very disappointing day for those who aren’t vaccinated.
