Commentary by Think for Yourself
I knew this would happen eventually.
It’s predicated on a number of false assumptions:
(1) The myth that the unvaccinated are somehow spreading the disease more than the vaccinated — when in fact the “viral loads” are the same in both who have it, according to a seminal study.
(2) The myth of asymptomatic transmission. Most transmission occurs within households and long-term care facilities, not in public.
(3) The myth that this is a disease that’s deadly enough to warrant something as extreme as violating the constitutional rights of citizens. From a medical standpoint, lockdowns failed in 2020; the disease went where it wanted to. And lockdowns did not pass a thorough cost-benefit analysis. And they killed a lot of people (called lockdown deaths), while their efficacy at disease control was never proven Some studies asserted they don’t work at all.
So what is really going on? Governments are seeking to punish those who won’t go along with the power grab by re-instituting lockdowns. This divides the population, on purpose, It gives power to those perpetrating it.
This is a purely political move, consistent with the real plan to achieve world domination through the trojan horse of a faux public health crisis. This is done is to scapegoat a minority population, to unjustly empower those pointing the finger. It’s a tool for authoritarianism, to erode individual rights.
I have posted numerous articles on the scapegoating phenomenon. Saddam Husein used it against the Kurds, the Jews have been the target of it many times in history, it was used to enslave and exploit and murder entire populations, etc. It’s nothing new.
Even medical tyranny is nothing new: calling a population diseased in order to isolate them was done under the pretext of blood purity in Austria/Germany 85 years ago. People were issued a “blood certificate” (Deutschblütigkeitserklärung), to exempt them from discriminatory racial laws, much as they’re now issued a vaccine passport to exempt them from the new medical discrimination. The comparison does not trivialize what happened then; it only points out that the initial conditions are similar, including the dehumanization of a minority for political purposes.
That doesn’t mean this will end up the same way (God forbid) but it could, given the propensity in human nature to mass violence when compelled by a ‘moral panic.‘ This is why it’s necessary to be vigilant against it and continue to oppose it and appeal to reason.
I fear this model of discrimination (lockdown of the unvaccinated) will now be used worldwide, wherever medical tyrants are in control. It’s very likely to happen where I am, since the local government here is complicit in this mass insanity. This is sadly true for all of Canada now.
But no matter what they do, it’s not going to persuade me to get the jab. I don’t see the point of allowing myself to take a drug that’s potentially very dangerous just to make pharmaceutical corporations richer and give even more power to globalists who want to exterminate me. I won’t go out on my knees.
If they’re willing to go this length, it should make us wary of what the real agenda may be. It’s certainly not public health, as I demonstrated in this article.
And how do I know other countries will follow? They’re using the same playbook. A centralized war room is calling the shots, which are then issued to regional health commissars, who then communicate with government leaders, who do their bidding, knowing that it’s coming from on high. We’ve seen it happen numerous times now.

VIENNA, Nov 14 (Reuters) – Austria is placing millions of people not fully vaccinated against the coronavirus in lockdown as of Monday to deal with a surge in infections to record levels and the growing strain on intensive-care units, the government said on Sunday.
[NB – Note that the role of ADE caused by the jab, the failure of the ‘vaccine’ to provide immunity, and the role of frequent testing in driving up numbers (and their lack of accuracy) are not officially acknowledged as causes of the continuing high number of cases. Instead, the unvaccinated are scapegoated and blamed.]
Europe is the epicentre of the COVID-19 pandemic again, prompting some governments to consider re-imposing unpopular lockdowns.
[NB – They seem not to have learned the lesson that lockdowns accomplish nothing except to harm people even more.]
Austria has one of the continent’s highest infection rates, with a seven-day incidence of 815 per 100,000 people.
Austria is the first European country to reinstate the same restrictions on daily movements that applied during national lockdowns before vaccines were rolled out, though this time they only affect a minority of the population. [italics added]
“We are not taking this step lightly but it is necessary,” Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg told a news conference announcing the new measure, under which the unvaccinated can only leave their homes for a limited number of reasons like going to work or shopping for essentials. [italics added]
[NB – At least they’re allowed to go shopping, but will grocery stores block them I wonder? Will they have to rely on charity from friends to eat? And will they be ticketed, arrested, etc? You can be sure that will happen to some, to set an example.]
Roughly 65% of Austria’s population is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, one of the lowest rates in western Europe. Many Austrians are skeptical about vaccines, a view encouraged by the far-right Freedom Party, the third biggest in parliament.
[NB – Why do they call those who advocate for freedom “far-right”? That almost seems to be some kind of slur. The people imposing lockdowns are the real fascists.]
The measures on Monday will extend those brought in a week ago which banned the unvaccinated from places including restaurants, hotels, theatres and ski lifts.
While the Netherlands is dealing with its surge in cases by imposing a partial lockdown that applies to all, Austria’s conservative-led government wants to avoid imposing further restrictions on those who are fully vaccinated. read more
“In reality we have told one third of the population: you will not leave your apartment anymore apart from for certain reasons. That is a massive reduction in contacts between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated,” Schallenberg said.
[NB – In other words, they are imposing house arrest on millions of people for no good reason, since this is not medically justified. But it is politically expedient for politicians who are paid off by Big Pharma and globalists.]
In Germany, the federal government and leaders of Germany’s 16 states are due to meet next week to discuss tightening measures. Germany has already classified Austria as a high-risk area, meaning people arriving from there have to go into quarantine, a blow to Austria’s winter tourism industry. read more
Targeted measures have recently been introduced in Australia, where 83% of people aged 16 and above have been fully inoculated. Some states have mandated vaccinations for some occupations and barred the unvaccinated from activities such as dining out, leading to demonstrations.
Singapore, where 85% of the population has been fully vaccinated, has said those who remained unvaccinated by choice would have to foot their medical bills from next month. read more
[NB – Yet another form of discrimination, it seems. Will Singapore not tax the unvaccinated to pay for health care? Of course, they will, but then deny them access to it. That too is coming. They’re intent on destroying everyone it seems: the vaccinated are at risk of serious health problems, even death — if they keep taking the jab, and the unvaccinated are being scapegoated and dehumanized and impoverished. I have a feeling this is being done by design, to further dive and conquer.]
Austria’s lockdown, which does not apply to the under-12s or people who have recently recovered from COVID-19, will initially last 10 days, Health Minister Wolfgang Mueckstein said.
[NB – It won’t end there. This will be ongoing until police eventually arrest the unvaccinated and take them to isolation camps by force. It’s fairly obvious what’s going on.]
POLICE CHECKS, STIFF FINES
Many officials, including within Schallenberg’s conservative party and the police, have expressed doubts this lockdown can be properly enforced as it applies to only part of the population.
Interior Minister Karl Nehammer said there will be thorough police checks and fines of up to 1,450 euros ($1,660) for breaches, and all interactions with the police will include checking people’s vaccination status. “As of tomorrow, every citizen, every person who lives in Austria must be aware that they can be checked by the police,” Nehammer told the news conference. [italics added]
[NB – In other words, a fascist police state. All this for an uremarkable disease with a 99% survival rate and relatively low transmission rate. People can’t see through this?]
Showing an official COVID pass proving that you have been vaccinated, recovered from COVID-19 or recently tested has been required for months in various places including restaurants, theatres, cafes, and hairdressers.
Such passes continue to be required in those places; as of last week the unvaccinated are longer allowed in. As of Monday non-essential shops, where no such passes are required, will be off-limits to the unvaccinated, but the only checks will be spot checks by the police, Nehammer said.
