Schachtel writes on substack (I must confess that I have no idea what substack is), and he has a piece up on New Zealand, which is a must-read given Joe Biden’s recent pledge to lockdown the entire country if ‘the scientists” tell him to:
The once-adored COVID-19 “success story” in New Zealand is fast becoming a cautionary tale. Wellington has taken its “battle” against the novel coronavirus to new extremes. Officials have quietly instituted a new draconian measure that forces confirmed and suspected COVID-19 positive citizens and their families into quarantine facilities, with little to no legal or humanitarian recourse available to them. …
On Thursday, the government announced that 500 New Zealand defence force personnel would be deployed for security at the 32 quarantine facilities in the country. They are going to be in charge of making sure that no one has the ability to enter or exit the facility without permission. The facilities have bolstered CCTV systems to keep track of the “guests” staying on the grounds.
Could this happen here? If you had asked me six months ago I would have told you were crazy for even asking. Not any more.
The reaction to the lockdowns has convinced me that the majority of this country are sheep … ready and willing to believe and/or to do whatever their government tells them. To put a finer point on it … in New Hampshire … allegedly the Live Free or Die State … the Governor has continued to exercise dictatorial powers for months after it became obvious … to any informed person … that COVID was a non-event, and has announced he intends to continue to exercise dictatorial powers for “some time” after a vaccine is developed … and yet, if the polls are to be believed, he enjoys sky-high approval ratings.
So … could we see New Zealand type COVID concentration camps in America? If Trump is not reelected, anything is possible. And I do not mean that in the sense that “the sky is the limit,” but rather in the sense that there will be no bottom to how low we may go.
