i have been noticing an increasingly worrying trend in australia amongst the relatively small anti-lockdown community. the idea that lockdowns are so bad that the ezfka of pre-2020 by comparison was a fine and dandy and peachy perfect place, not the increasingly neo-feudal shithole that it actually was. to be sure, lockdowns, and covidism/vaccine-ism, in general, have all been disgustingly obnoxious. they’ve stretched the standards for what qualifies as credible evidence based policy to absurd new limits. they’ve shown us that you merely need to cloak the most dramatic, severely life altering and absurd strictures in the tinsel of “science” and “humanitarianism” and the vast majority of ezfka units will go along with a level of dedication and enthusiam that would have made goebbels jealous.
and yes, it has been bad. and at least for now, while we have time to squeeze some efficacy out of the shitty “vaccines” before they inevitably stop working en-masse, it appears to be coming to a temporary end. but has it all been bad? recollecting on it, there have been some nice things to have emerged from the mania;
- the reduction of traffic on the roads. i thought this was cool and nice. who the fuck likes traffic on the road? its noisy, dirty, intimidating and dangerous. i wish the streets could be so quiet and relatively car-free for all eternity.
- work from home! this one is obvious, but unfortunately it will be short-lived. the pointlessness of office space and needing to physically “be” at a work location for the 15% or whatever ezfka units who work in offices has been exposed bare for all to see due to covid. too bad this realised pointlessness couldn’t extend to most of the office jobs themselves, which don’t need to exist or be done by anybody in any shape or form.
- no migration
thinking about this more fully however brings me back to my original point. the “old” ezfka is coming back. the one that existed prior to covid. we are trading one crap existence for another. i see so many people rejoicing over the poliical ascendance of premier perottet in australia, but he is no visionary or revolutionary; just a restorative force; the ‘hero’ that will return us to the shithole ezfka we knew before, not take us in an entirely new direction, as we actually need. the shithole that imported 200,000+ coolies every year (good bye wage growth; there’ll be even more to make up the slack this time!) and made doing something as basic and normal as acquiring shelter a multi-decade endeavor comprised of eating maggi noodles and shitting in public toilets to save money on toilet paper.
so rejoice; lockdown might be over for now. but remember, it was never good before.
