Madness in Melbourne

Jeffrey A. Tucker

“Now there are big worries in Melbourne. 

The Premier has imposed a vicious police state without precedent in this country’s history. His name is Dan Andrews (a sweet-sounding name that masks the tyrant he has become), and he tweets out pictures of empty streets to brag about what he has achieved in the name of suppressing a virus. 

Tacitus’s line about the Roman empire comes to mind: ‘Where they make a desert, they call it peace.’

Australia is the only country in the world that has a law that people can’t be mean to each other. Now it is host to one of the world’s meanest governments.”
