You there–quiet! No talking in line! No talking at home! Shut up!

We have every right to be sick and tired of lockdowns in America; but by comparison to what they’re doing in Australia, we ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
Australia is pursuing the goal of “zero COVID,” which may well be impossible. They lift their lockdowns and then slam them back down if anyone gets sick.
And now they want people to… stop talking! (https://www.theblaze.com/news/australian-health-officer-do-not-talk-to-each-other) ‘Cause talking, of course, might spread COVID germs.
Sez Kerry Chant, chief health officer for New South Wales, “Now is the time for minimizing your interactions with others.” No talking! You there–did I catch you talking? Did I catch you interacting with whatsisname in the red baseball cap? DAMN YOU, I SAID “SILENCE!!!”
They’re going to destroy our lives in order to save them. Does anybody really want to live this way? Like, you can go on living as long as you stop doing all those things that constitute living.
You can be sure Ms. Chant is having the time of her life, though. Count on it. Crushin’ the plebs–it doesn’t get any better than that.
