Memory Journal 30 July 2021
Some twelve months ago I wrote the post below based on my own knowledge on the subject. Twelve months later, I have not changed my opinion. I stand by my post and convictions.
We have lost the plot. We have lost sight of what is important. State Premiers have become tinpot tyrants and dictators, our once respected forces in blue have lost the confidence of Australians with their aggressive and heavy handed approach to managing the security of the people.
Mental health issues have increased, suicides rates are no longer made public, small businesses have hit the wall and many small cottage industries have disappeared forever. At the national level there is much to be desired and those in the decision making role are no better than their non elected health officials who believe they send they alone are the so-called experts.
Mixed messages to society already frightened, confused and distrustful of government by the media and elected/non elected officials. Poor leadership with millions of dollars of tax payers funds spent on spin doctors and health charlatans peddling their wares have all contributed to the current state of affairs.
Society has now reached the point where even the most hardened sceptics and stoics are questioning the wisdom of their government elected officials. Here I am stranded waiting patiently for a flight home and I am wondering to what type of world am I returning to.
Cheerio for now. Stay strong and fight the good fight.
THE NEEDLESS CULLING OF AUSTRALIANS
ABALINX 30 JULY 2020
I am not surprised by it all. Not one bit. I have been consistent all along that the authorities were out of their depth and listened far too much to alleged medical experts who did not know what they were up against. I don’t care about those wanting to shoot the messenger. I am but a humble little bloke who studied and trained for such a scenario. Trained to question, seek the evidence and find solutions from an epidemiology perspective. As for the deaths it was to be expected. I worked for the Australian Greek Archdiocese Welfare for two years.
I saw the conditions the staff had to work under at St Basils Aged Care Facility in Fawkner. Appalling to say the least and I must say that my heart and soul goes out to those grieving relatives who were lied to and left to pick up the pieces. There is only one individual responsible for the catastrophe at St Basils Aged Care. A vile, mean disgusting creature that in my time the staff disliked. I have clashed with this individual on numerous occasions.
PUT MATTERS INTO PERSPECTIVE
As for all the deaths associated with the virus we need to put things into perspective. Had they applied the same concepts as they do to the Annual Influenza season, there would have been fewer deaths, more people seeking medical health and at the hospitals in ICU and the economy would have been stable. Allowing the protests to continue, failing to check all visitors, passengers and others arriving at Australian shores just added to the misery.
USELESS GOVERNMENT MOBILE APP
I am on record stating that the Government mobile App was just bullshit and that it would not save lives.
These people need to see a shrink and have their brains rewired. The virus is very infectious, targeting the elderly and those with underlying health issues of which I fall into that category.
WEARING OF MASKS
The wearing of masks is not going to stop the spread of the virus but merely provides a psychological edge, highlights the importance of social distancing, creates an acute awareness of basic hygiene practices and avoiding perceived infected regions.
Protesters using the Black Lives Matter Syndrome should be ashamed of themselves for putting others at risk. All colours of the rainbow are important and not just those whose skin colour is a shade darker than others. Politicians are just as much to blame for allowing such protests to go ahead.
STOP THE POLITICISATION OF THE VIRUS
State Premiers should stop politicising and creating an environment of fear and allow the medical authorities to handle the situation. Premiers should learn to step back, take a break or suffer the consequences of burnout. Burnout is a health hazard and there are many heroes now lying in the cemeteries. The same goes for the many unsung good medical and police heroes of our society.
TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS & QUARANTINE
They should not have implemented travel restrictions as they are not a solution. Quarantine should be at home with regular checks being conducted by professional medical teams and followed up by mobile checks which provide an individual’s location. Failure to abide to the above should attract a hefty fine.
WHAT A JOKE WE HAVE BECOME
The solution is a simple common-sense approach to an alleged deadly and infectious virus who few have an idea how to manage.
A. Check symptoms
- Isolate and quarantine infected
- Good hygiene practices
- Social distancing
- Conduct random checks
- Keep economy alive
- Do not panic
- Keep active
- Be happy
That is my view of things. This could have been handled far well than it has been.
I have had enough of the media rubbish and the language of fear and anxiety being used and fed to a herd society. There has been enough culling of Australians, so let us get matters back to normal and get this great country of ours moving.
Never have fear as a companion, never give up, stop the panic and enjoy life, for the world is still a beautiful place.
