South Australia Proposes Two Year Sentences For Breaking COVID-19 Restrictions

The covid pandemic pushed us all into new territory when it comes to governance and it seems that those that seized powers by way of emergency declarations, are not quite satisfied about the amount of abuse they bestowed upon their citizenry.

The world shut down, people stayed home to “keep others safe,” restaurants closed, parks were locked, and you couldn’t leave your residence for anything other than toilet paper, and due to the shortage, that panic buying created – you were lucky to even find any – and children fell behind in their educations because they were forced into online taught, causing some devastating effects among the youth.

In Australia, the restrictions that were imposed under the Emergency Management Act are about to be repealed, but one state is determined to make these rules permanent.

South Australia, according to 7 News, has proposed a new law that would see those who violate covid rules – receiving a hefty prison sentence of two years.

“The new legislation is said to replace the Emergency Management Act responsible for rules like mandatory quarantining and mask wearing,” 7 News explained.

“But the alternative bill could face some pushback in the Upper House. The law society says it lacks detail and would hand the governor extraordinary, permanent powers.”

“Leaked documents have reportedly revealed that the Liberal Party is worried about hefty penalties of up to $75,000 and a two-year jail term planned for any future covid breaches.”

The Liberal Party says they support a move out of the emergency declaration but refuse to agree to “a tick-and-flick situation” with the new bill.

“So, there could be some fiery scenes in Parliament when it resumes tomorrow,” the 7 News reporter added.

If these changes take place, covid authoritarianism will become permanent in South Australia because the restrictions will no longer be classified as an emergency, therefore they can be codified as law – indefinitely.

Two years ago, when lockdowns first began around the globe, many could see the abuse of power that began immediately, would not be going away probably ever. Tyrants don’t generally give up their power once they have it. We have officially entered an Orwellian nightmare.

In the United States, those in support of the Second Amendment, see the irony in what Australia is now doing to its citizens once they confiscated all their guns – and are determined that this doesn’t happen in the Land of the Free.

There are only a handful of politicians in Australia that will bother to push back against these proposals, Pauline Hanson being one of them, but she may have a steep hill to climb as the Australian Parliament does not work for the people of Australia.

One lesson that can be taken from this by Americans – hold on to your right to bear arms – the government will take full advantage otherwise.
