"Melbourne has Become a Living Hell"

August 5, 2020

Satanists Establish Police State in Melbourne

How easily disappear the veneer of civilization and democracy. 

"Melbourne has become a living hell, not because of the virus (which is still mild) but because of the unleashing of a hellish police state."

Only one person per household, per day, can leave the house (including for groceries). Can't go more than 3 miles from your home. The army is on the streets fining/arresting people. 

Makow comment:  I hope Melbourne residents will vote out the politicians responsible and join a tax revolt.

Madness in Melbourne
by Jeffrey Tucker

Melbourne, that glorious city in the state of Victoria in Australia, granted me some of the best travel days of my life during two separate trips each lasting a full week.

A happy, civilized, highly educated people are here living amidst modern architecture, inspiring bridges, and natural beauty, a place where even the police are kind, and when you ask them for directions they reply with a smile, and when you say thank you, they say "No worries."

Now there are big worries in Melbourne.

The Premier has imposed a vicious police state without precedent in this country's history. His name is Dan Andrews (a sweet-sounding name that masks the tyrant he has become), and he tweets out pictures of empty streets to brag about what he has achieved in the name of suppressing a virus.

Tacitus's line about the Roman empire comes to mind: "Where they make a desert, they call it peace."

Australia is the only country in the world that has a law that people can't be mean to each other. Now it is host to one of the world's meanest governments.

The catastrophe began with a spring lockdown before there were any cases of C-19 and much fewer deaths. The ethos in Australia was one of extreme exclusion and suppression of the virus, not as bad as New Zealand but pretty bad. The rest of the world can catch this disease, but Australia would use its geographical isolation and political intelligence to ban the virus. The virus will be in awe and know to stay away forever.

It's not a good theory because that's not how viruses work.

Still, it seemed to work, at first. That's because the virus had yet to arrive.

When the virus did arrive, the futility of the suppression strategy was revealed.

Melbourne had set up quarantine hotels for people arriving from abroad or returning from cruises. They would spend 14 days in isolation to purge themselves of possible infection. Then all would be okay. There was a problem: the wily virus escaped.

As a result, a nation's pride in having suppressed the virus turned to panic and full lockdown. Internal borders are sealed. And Melbourne has become a living hell, not because of the virus (which is still mild) but because of the unleashing of a hellish police state.

A friend summarized the situation for me:

+Police may now enter anyone's home without a warrant. 

+Curfew 8:00pm. 

+ $1,652 fine if outside without "a valid reason" - an amount being raised by the day 

+ Can't visit any family or friends. $200 fine for no mask (mandatory masks at all times). 

+Can only exercise once per day, for up to 1 hour. 

+Only one person per household, per day, can leave the house (including for groceries). 

+Can't go more than 3 miles from your home. 

+Weddings are illegal. No gatherings of any size. 

+Army is on the streets fining/arresting people. 

+"Since March 21, a total of 193,740 spot checks have been conducted by police across Victoria." 

+ Protests/activism is illegal; people have already been arrested for peaceful gatherings. 

+Media is EXTREMELY biased, calls protesters "right-wing conspiracy nutjobs" and won't allow discussion of whether these lockdowns are right or not. 

+Several thousand people were placed under house arrest and unable to leave for ANY reason, with food rations delivered by the army, leading to appalling levels of personal trauma. 

+Australia won't release how many fines they've given out, but an ABC news report says it's over $5.2 million so far. 

+Streets of Melbourne are empty, even in a city of 5 million+ people. People are HATEFUL to each other, everyone is cannibalizing their neighbours (calling police to report any little infraction of the rules and turning on each other like some socialist hellhole). 

+Billboards outside on the street that say in capital letters: "WHAT ARE YOU DOING? STAY HOME." They feel extremely oppressive like we're being yelled at by a very oppressive government. 

+The Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews shows complete and utter disdain for us, constantly blaming us. He's blamed children (yes, really) for not taking this seriously enough. Every chance he gets, he tells us it's OUR fault the virus is spreading (even though that's what viruses do - they spread). 

+It's not just the Victorian Premier - the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, left, is just as terrible. He's encouraged all of this, and he was responsible for the first lockdown. 

+1984 dystopian language: billboards everywhere saying "Staying apart keeps us together." 

+Have they gone mad? There's probably more but at this point, I honestly lost track of all the insanity that's happened. All because 147 people died in the state of Victoria (total population is 6.359 million), almost all of the deaths are over 70 with comorbidities, same as everywhere else in the world. 

+This is lockdown ideology at work. It is a tyranny without limit, at the expense of all human dignity, decency, and rights. The politicians make a desert and call it health.

Like everywhere else on the planet, Melbourne will have to reach herd immunity from C-19 at some point. Those who deny that are risking not only liberty and health but civilization itself.

Perhaps the other states in Australia will observe the destruction in Victoria and learn to take another path when the virus first arrives in their territory, as it surely will. Lockdowns are not science; they are brutality.

I cry for the once-great city of Melbourne this day. May there be justice. And may its future political leadership be granted some modicum of decency and wisdom.

 First Comment from John G

There are a lot of places in this world that have beautiful landscapes and beautiful structures but they often have some of the most lifeless and paranoid people who live in them. Melbourne, Australia, and New Zealand are Green Party country and their agenda has always been anti-social and anti-consumer. The COVID agenda is the Green Party agenda on steroids. Their end game is a totalitarian state run by the super globalist state where the general population will forever be under total control and surveillance. It's just sad to witness how easily so many people have confirmed to this tyranny without much organized resistance.

Scruples - the game of moral dillemas

Comments for ""Melbourne has Become a Living Hell""

Matt from Melbourne said (August 6, 2020):

I am not writing to you to add a comment but just to say thanks so much for posting that article - thanks - it hit the nail on the head.

It really is a living hell - I have felt paralyzed and shell-shocked - and am without work. I hate Daniel Andrews.

One small correction, spring lockdown was autumn lockdown here - started 23rd of March. Business and work had been slowing down for weeks before that as well.

Essel said (August 6, 2020):

I know perfectly well that what I am going to say (and which I have already tried to say), and which is nevertheless a logical obviousness, has little chance of being heard in a world where everyone says himself what is right and what is wrong. And, of course, evil lies only in others.

Nevertheless, I try again. 1°/ God allows everything that happens on earth, including the kind of horror described here. Now, God is good and almighty, so He could stop this evil right now, but He does not. First massive truth. 2°/ All the descriptions of horrors that are published on this site and others, the authors implicitly consider themselves and most of their fellow human beings as innocent (self-proclaimed) victims. Would God be wicked or powerless? 3°/ The truth, which the prophets of the Old Covenant never ceased to proclaim even if they were stoned to death, is that men, once again, live as if God did not exist and some add to the outrage by making his verbal praise but act in everything according to their own will (Mt 7, 21) and by sorting out in his Commandments, e.g. "I am for contraception but against abortion".

The problem therefore lies in the fact that the authors of these articles, although describing proven realities, are struck by blindness to the abominations perpetrated by the men of the day. I know a little bit about the case of Australia from a great-nephew engineer who works there. A "godless one", who finds the social organization very good. Now, in his descriptions, Australia, perhaps even more so than America, is a perfect example of the Luciferian beauty of a policed world from which God is banished.

Then, of course, what is happening at the moment contrasts incomprehensibly with the "luxury, calm and voluptuousness" (Baudelaire, the flowers of evil) previously prevailing of the Luciferian order and they attack their proxies, which it will be enough to change at the next elections, they think. And once again, they forget to look up at themselves.

Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy).

AC said (August 6, 2020):

My Dad was born in Melbourne. He left there in 1975. I have been there with him. Showed me where he grew up. Last trip there was a few years ago.

I have been watching this situation and I am just sickened by what has happened there. If my Dad were still alive, he would be beyond sickened. He remembered the days when Henry Bolte was Premier and he did much to develop the city. Now Daniel Andrews has now destroyed all that.

Daniel Andrews is indeed the most tyrannical Premier, Head of Government ever in Australian History. If there is still any justice, The Governor of Victoria would intervene and terminate Andrews Commission as Premier. Better still, Andrews should be arrested and charged with High Treason and be given the highest sentence.

As for Scott Morrison. I truly believe he is Nero. He fiddled while Australia burned and he still fiddles while The Andrews Crime Family terrorizes Melbourne and Victoria.

JS said (August 6, 2020):

My first thought was that Melbourne is a test run for phase 2 lockdowns. Amazing how police and the military cooperate in the ruin of their people, and these where the “heroes” in countries like Australia. I pray for God’s judgment on these wicked ones because I don’t know what else can be done.
