THE GREATER GOOD OR GRANDER EVIL
Western democracy has a long tradition of individualism which has usually been ascendant over collectivist regimes.
This article from Spectator Australia, February 9th, 2022, summarizes Australians’ experience with collectivist-inspired regulations, with individuals subservient to the collective.
From the beginning of the Covid epidemic, Australia’s governments have adopted collectivist policies: segregation; state-sanctioned discrimination; stalking apps, vaccine passports, state vaccine employment policies. All violated what Australians understood to be their individual rights. In order for government to protect themselves from public backlash, they drafted and implemented ever-more tyrannical health orders.
Government was desperate to enforce mass compliance to their public health plans. Any form of contrary debate or conversation that challenged the ‘science’ sprouted by the Department of Health had to be erased — not discussed.
My forthcoming novel ‘Turkeys Not Bees’ has a dilemma of individual and collective Covid actions.
