Victoria at the moment
"Melbourne has Become a Living Hell"
August 5, 2020
Satanists Establish Police State in Melbourne
How easily disappear the veneer of civilization and democracy.
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.
+ $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.
+"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.
+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.
