Intrastate travel within Australia is also severely restricted. And the government of South Australia, one of the country’s six states, developed and is now testing an app as Orwellian as any in the free world to enforce its quarantine rules. People in South Australia will be forced to download an app that combines facial recognition and geolocation. The state will text them at random times, and thereafter they will have 15 minutes to take a picture of their face in the location where they are supposed to be. Should they fail, the local police department will be sent to follow up in person. “We don’t tell them how often or when, on a random basis they have to reply within 15 minutes,” Premier Steven Marshall explained. “I think every South Australian should feel pretty proud that we are the national pilot for the home-based quarantine app.”
Holy shit. Frankly, the best response to something this awful is
gunfire I mean mass disobedience. (Gunfire, of course, is not an option because the OzGov has all but disarmed their entire population already.)
Everyone could just refuse to follow instructions to download the app. But what if that was no longer an option because the app would be automatically downloaded when, say, they used Google (and don’t for a moment think that Gurgle wouldn’t cooperate in this)? But if everyone just refused to stay at home, how soon before the “local police forces” ran out of steam and just stopped chasing after these doubleplusungood citizens?
Wouldn’t ever happen, of course, because it appears that Australians long ago decided to lick the chains that enslave them.
