Leviathan excels at pitting people against one another. Our latest example comes from Australia, where tyrants have invented “COVID marshals.”
In other words, these nannies will nag Australians into complying with COVIDiocy every time they leave home for such “prescribed operations” as:
- The onsite purchase and consumption of food or beverages (indoor and outdoor). This does not include take-away only operators.
- Religious or faith-based ceremonies.
- Supermarkets and hardware stores.
- Distribution centres (including associated transport operations).
- Gymnasiums and fitness centres.
- Swimming pools used by the public.
- Social and sporting clubs.
- Any activity where a COVID Management Plan is required.
- Any operation which may be defined by the state coordinator.
If you manage such an enterprise and you “reasonably [expect]” “fewer than 200 people … to participate,” the despots will graciously allow one of your employees to add hectoring your customers to his other duties. If you attract more than 200 folks, you must hire a full-time busybody. Talk about a jobs progam!
Either way, I can see everyone absolutely loathing these pests. Worse, as Vinnie Terranova sardonically noted in sending me the link, “But it can’t happen here.”1:43 pm on August 22, 2020 Email Becky Akers
