I can’t breathe
It is not just relentless development, population growth and mass migration that entrap me, but the alarming incursions of our soft totalitarian state, a coalition of forces whose ultimate objective is to destroy self-reliance. Their clear intention is to eradicate independence of thought and speech, medical sovereignty, and the viability of small businesses, many of which have decimated by Covid protocols while big box stores flourish at their expense. Family farmers, alternative health practitioners and home schoolers are on the target list too. And with the introduction of vaccine passports, the embryonic Orwellian state now has the capability of depriving us of one of the most vital Constitutional rights, our freedom to travel freely within our own nation state, to access important services and gather with distant friends and family.
