excuse me everyone, i know that austraila is a penal colony and all, but isn’t THIS pretty much a violation of “cruel and unusual punishment, even for prisoners?
because is seems like maybe it should be.
I for one am very grateful to the Australian government.
They are giving the rest of the industrialized world a sneak peek of what all petty tyrants would and will do in the event they think they can get away with it.
Old fashioned Flip phones may be the wave of the future
Yes, this is crazy. One of a growing number of reasons to throw away your smartphone.
They're also forcibly injecting people which is a criminal act. I don't know why msm in the USA is so silent about their abuses.
They “should feel pretty proud” that are literal prisoners?!? Was that followed by a maniacal laugh?
Is Covid that bad down there? Make Orwell fiction again. Increasingly the mark of the beast is becoming reality.
Coming soon to a techno-feudal dystopia near you!
covid zero is a tool to destroy the rights of man....
read billy budd!
Theyve out-China'd China. Australia now officially has ZERO place in the Western world and can no longer chastise China on any human rights issues, not gay rights, not the uyghurs, not Hong Kong, nothing. To the CCP, Australia is simply the white trash neighbor with the dirty trailer in the yard (with multiple flat tires and moss stains).
But I will say that I believe this is coming to NYC and surely all of California if Newsom is elected. He will want revenge and there will be no patience for the "anti vaxers, anti maskers and anti lockdown MAGA voters" who caused all of this (will be the narrative).
More people will flee there, if possible, but that will only make matters worse as they will just turn the other states they go to blue. Then you really have an Uniparty, run by the business-stylings of Davos Man.
I bet people living in Australia wish they had guns
Starting to think we need an updated constitution for the internet age.
"Where they are supposed to be." What if that's at a party? Or soccer match? A crowded grocery aisle? Kneeling at a church altar? A golf foursome? A picnic with other families? Then what? F'ing tyrants.
“…as any in the free world.” LOL
How long until the USA follows in their footsteps?
When The Atlantic says it's worried about basic freedoms, we know things have gone beyond the pale. Funny how the Atlantic writer still seems to think vaccines are the solution though.
Can't wait for the police to go out busting old people who can't figure out technology, or people who simply work graveyard and sleep during the day.
Does the state give them phones and computers? That’s nuts.
What the actual &%$#?
This one required me to put some dollars in the cuss jar.
Every day I think we’re going to have to find a way to rescue the residents of Gilead
Hmm. "the state will text them at random times, and... they'll have 15 minutes to respond."
There are going to be a lot of VERY unhappy people when they get the call in their girlfriend's/boyfriend's home at 2 AM.
I have been using a flip phone for about a year, thanks to AmazingPolly.net. I was contacted by my carrier, Patriot Mobile that my phone will cease to work very soon and needs to be upgraded. After some mild encouragement by the sales rep to go smart phone, regardless I ordered a new Alcatel flip phone.
Horrifying - that gives one paws. Uh, Pause. Pause in everything I had once assumed about freedom loving Australia 😒
"Sorry, phone's broken."
We’ll there goes my plan to retire in Australia…
Haha raises interesting questions. Like my wife doesnt have a smartphone so she can't get apps. Are Australians legally obligated to own smartphones?
premeir steven marshall, authoritarian of the day
He will be held to account.
Turn the phone off and leave it off.
Why would anyone in their right mind comply with this? I guess if you have the vast majority of people complying then they have the time to go after the non-compilers. The question is, how would they get most people to comply?
