Oh boy:

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.


  1. What is interesting is how readily the Aussies submitted. It is as if they were looking for someone to submit to.

    It is also interesting how readily the Aussie Masters seized power, and how strongly they cling to it.

    Kipling should rewrite or delete that poem about Anglo Saxon rage.

  2. Worse yet, the appear to be importing mooslims but blocking their own stranded citizens from returning https://sovietmen.wordpress.com

    FWIW this is an opportunity. Every time the thing pings for you to take a pic have an app that returns a picture of a nob or ballsack.

    That way you can leave the thing at home and use a WiFi only device to call and chat.

  3. So what would you have us do? Start shooting? Sure, we actually own MORE firearms than before the 1996 gun “Stealback”. So what?

    Here’s an idea. How about we just vote the fascist pricks out at the next election? Which we can still do. And yes, according to the polls and all reports, that’s what’s going to happen. So no, if it doesn’t happen, maybe then we start shooting!

    Do you think we like the current situation? FFS, grow up! NO, many millions of us HATE it and are just biding our time.

    1. well if this doesn’t give you a RCOB then what will?

      I’d start with the disobedience part. No one down load the application. If the application is forced on you, then don’t comply with sending a picture in. Leave the cell phone someplace and go about your business.

      If non compliance and wasting police resources don’t bring down the system before the next election then employ other methods of resistance.


  4. …… or you could just turn your phone off ( de power it – or remove the SIM Card) until you needed it. Google could just force a download to your android device, and you would need Apple’s help to infect all the Apple devices.

    and I still have my land line, so if I was living in south OZ, I would rethink my need for a Cell Phone. It wasn’t that long ago that they didn’t exist .

      1. That was my thought. For a Faraday cage, would they need anything more than a metal box with no gaps? I think this electronic leash would go away fast if a large number of the Aussie dogs just disappeared off the face of the earth until they made a cell phone call, and then disappeared again.

    1. And not even owning a smart phone isn’t an apparent option either. I know the damn things are everywhere, but there still are people who don’t own one.

  5. Since this was in The Atlantic — How long before some Pol here in the US tries his hand at this. I already get messages on my phone encouraging me to Download Massachusetts’s Covid Exposure Tracking App. ( Not going to happen Charlie Baker ) .

    Newsom would be tempted under normal circumstances — but he has bigger problems.

  6. I will probably spend about 10 minutes trying to download the app, just to f*k with them.

  7. >>”Should they fail, the local police department will be sent to follow up in person.”

    Yeah, right.

    There will be a couple of high profile examples made of, but the ratio of police to people in the US is roughly 1:428. In Australia, a nation of merely 25mm, there are only 45k policemen, making the ratio something like 1:555.

    I like those odds, so lotsa luck trying to make that happen.

    They can prevail only with your consent.

    If they try to kill you, try to kill them right back. If they try to beat you, swarm and overwhelm.

    Remember: they fear YOU.

  8. I tend toward the pacifist option of a Faraday cage. Or just leave the damned thing at home. I’m NOT one of the people who lives with a cell phone glued to their face.

  9. You have to remember that this is South Australia, where apart from Victoria is home to probably the stupidest people in Australia. This is the state that deliberately destroyed their own coal fired power station and continually brags about being the state with the most renewable energy in Australia, yet suffered a several-day duration state-wide blackout due to the loss of several power lines from the main power inter-connector from NSW.

  10. Well we’ve come a long way since millions of people complained when Apple pushed out a free U2 album to people’s phones without asking.
