When the term became popular, those devices were about the size of a physical brick as well.

It's hard for those outside of Australia to understand the dynamics at play here. Sydney is a divided city - there's the privileged East, and there's the disadvantaged West, and your treatment by Government is wholly determined by your geographic location.

Think of the East as the equivalent of your Beverly Hills. It's full of rich cunts who hold all the power and the wealth who call for "freeing refugees", but would never have them in their city. The West is like your borders - it's where the refugees actually go. It's full of hardworking people who want a better life for themselves and their families, but are treated like natives who need their colonial masters in the East to come and gift us their leadership of benevolent betterness.

No, this isn't rebellion. Our Eastern city counterparts are free to do what they want, while in the West we still have citizens being forced to justify that their shopping is "essential" by the arbitrary standards of the armed police or military supervising supermarkets at gunpoint.

Exactly! By the same logic that "Covid" has killed hundreds of thousands, covid vaccines have killed millions.

You allowed a paedophile to steal an election from the single most popular incumbent President in your country's history. At least when WE had a rapist seeking to become Prime Minister in the last election we had both the decency to vote for the other guy and the election integrity to make sure that vote was genuine.

Nobody's reporting this stuff in the Australian mainstream news.

Let this sink in. Seven News (https://7news.com.au/) is not reporting that one of its own senior reporters has been hospitalised as a result of the vaccine that our Government is mandating all citizens must take.

I personally knew one vaccine fatality, and have seen quite a few friends and colleagues suffer severe adverse reactions. Despite that, my family has chosen to disown me if I do not take the needle - which, because my mother has stage four cancer, will mean I'll never see my mother alive ever again.

The Fake News has convinced her that there is NO RISK to the vaccine, and that Covid-19 is inevitably fatal. This is what propaganda does, and technology has made propaganda more pervasive than ever before.

The NSW Government is currently issuing QR code-based identity cards, but will soon be replacing them with an NFC identity card that can be tapped on a phone carried by a police officer or other Government agent to immediately bring up your personal data, including your name, address and vaccination status.

Fact-check:

FALSE: You will NOT be asked to produce your "Papers, please" on demand.

You will not be required to carry physical papers. You will instead be required to show your personal information on demand using the Government-mandated tracking app on your Apple or Android mobile device.

I wish I could, I actually got to the point of drawing up a business plan for a subscription news service that would broadcast from sets that SAY CNN, MSNBC etc. (yeah, we get that fake news even here in Australia) but present unbiased news. Since most of this stuff is delivered via the internet (IPTV replacing cable in most cases) a physical "firewall" of sorts would redirect any internet traffic to look-a-like websites that basically put a CNN logo on Infowars.com - and our parents would never know the difference.

You might have had a point if such statistics bear themselves out in other democratic elections. They don't - even in jurisdictions with compulsory voting you don't see correlations that tie that closely to demographic data even in single districts. Seeing these kinds of patterns occur organically across MANY districts is statistically impossible.

MAGA voters outnumbered Dem voters 2:1 in the last Presidential election, and we all know how that turned out. You don't need to win more voters because you already have them, you need to take control of your election security.

And even after all that, what are we supposed to do with our time? Shops are closed, cafes are closed, everything is closed. All we can do in the short term is stir anger and make people question the Labor/Liberal duopoly for the first time.

I'm the head of a major orchestra - which makes me the only openly conservative head of an arts company in my country.

My Board gets calls for my sacking pretty much every day for taking positions such as "Government broadcasters should be defunded" (for many MANY reasons, not least that they use taxpayers' money to play favourites), for refusing to impose woke quotas, for refusing to use the organisation to shill poison vaccines and so much more.

The single reason why my position is secure is that our orchestra was formed (by me and lifelong friends of mine) as a Musician-owned orchestra that receives absolutely no public funding whatsoever. Because of this, the music's better quality, the work we produce is world class - and most of our counterparts elsewhere want us gone.

It's amazing how much damage just one left-wing CEO can do to an organisation - because if I were to be sacked today and replaced tomorrow, by next week the organisation would not be able to publish even a press release without "acknowledging the traditional owners of the land", imposing gender quotas, and mandating that all employees must take poison.

I hope she sues the BSO into oblivion.

Exactly. There are no physical papers, you must show your digital credentials on demand instead.
