This was collected from a Twitter thread published by one of the few effective anti-corruption bodies in Australia.
Hated by the Government and its donors because it is not available for hire!
31 Dec 2021
If you’re more interested in moaning on Twitter than getting real, this urgent thread will be hard to read (so scroll on).
But if you want to get truth instead of more sugar-coating or tears, here it is.
The first thing needed to be said is: with respect, please grow up.
What #Snotty did yesterday has been coming for a while, for those willing to see it.
In fact, it’s been coming since January 2020.
Because this is LNP philosophy: people are not humans to them, they’re just workers or units of production power.
Your ONLY value to these pricks is how you add to (or detract from) the prosperity of the wealthy.
Once you understand that, the rest becomes a bit easier.
Because you can then stop being upset & miserable, & get ANGRY.
And when you’re angry, you can decide to get organised, & decide to fight.
This is what MFW do: sure, we do some moaning on Twitter, but mostly we organise campaigns to MAKE THINGS BETTER.
Nothing else works, and nothing ever will.
Moaning on Twitter gets everybody exactly nowhere, except that Morrison et al are laughing at us.
If you can accept that you mean NOTHING to them except as you contribute to the economy, you can move on from all that emotion (a bit, you’ll still be upset but anger will dominate, which is good).
From what we can see, there are two main reasons #Snotty has let #COVID19 run, and in fact WANTS it to run.
The first is that the huge travel companies in AUS would not tolerate dedicated QT, which was the only way the country could operate while staying safe from COVID for another year or two.
International travellers will not come to a country if they have to QT for 14 days (or even 7) as it eats into their vacation time too much.
So people like Alan Joyce & Graham Turner (Flight Centre) used their huge influence to ensure such QT would never happen.
They’re both enormous LNP donors.
The second reason is that without cheap workers from overseas, Australian workers were starting to demand (and get) higher wages.
Like many countries, Australia uses cheap overseas labour to dampen local wages & entrench hatred of low-paid workers and the unemployed.
This is why they HAD to get borders open again: to get OS workers back in in big numbers.
The wealthy will not tolerate a situation where AUS wages are rising because workers are more powerful, & the solution to that is to get borders open.
All these people are LNP donors.
Even so, what they’ve done probably wouldn’t have worked without Murdoch engineering the whole thing using his propaganda hate media.
Because his control of the media has allowed the LNP to let COVID spread without significant backlash from many of the very people it will hurt most.
If you need more evidence for Murdoch’s huge control of all this, look no further than the fact that the only state which has resisted what’s now occurring is the one without a Murdoch paper – WA.
Their newspaper is right-wing too, but is nowhere near as full of outright lies as #NewsCorpse.
(Yeah, even Stokes has SOME standards, who’da thunk it?)
Once you accept your health has been deliberately sacrificed for Alan Joyce, Graham Turner, Rupert Murdoch and all those who employ significant numbers of people you can stop looking for reasons elsewhere.
It really is that simple: OS tourism was dead and wages were rising, and both those things are completely unacceptable to the wealthy employers.
Having explained that, you need to understand why the specific changes yesterday.
They’re because the LNP have miscalculated.
As stupid as they are, they didn’t expect so many to get COVID so quickly because they didn’t plan for #Omicron.
But of course, they’re so committed to opening up they refuse to go backwards.
So the only way for them now is to force Australia to keep working while infected.
Yep, you read that right.
From today on, most states have no rules for isolation or QT for staff, AND THAT IS COMPLETELY DELIBERATE.
Because if #Snotty didn’t do this, nearly every workplace in AUS would be closed in 3 or 4 weeks.
If workplaces closed with COVID exposures, before long we’d have no supermarkets (so no food); no heavy haulage (so no food, fuel or other essentials); no electricity, gas or communications; no hospitals or nursing homes; no childcare the list goes on.
That was already starting to happen in NSW, and would happen everywhere.
What the LNP have to do is ensure business operates so the majority of Australians still get fed & get the services they need.
They’re hoping the 40% of asymptomatic Aussies who will keep going to work will be able to keep the country running.
It’s a gamble, but it’s all they’ve got.
We’re not being alarmist saying this: we’re saying it to emphasise that all people’s moaning on Twitter won’t make one iota of difference.
They HAVE to do this now to keep the country running.
Does that make the changes okay?
If you’ve read our tweets before, you know MFW have always strongly favoured closed borders till we are all pretty-much safe from COVID.
That the LNP threw this away for the sake of rich CEO’s is unspeakable.
And that they have deliberately put this country in the most perilous national crisis since WW2 is even more outrageous.
But it is what it is.
We all have to survive the next 6 – 8 weeks, which will look different for everyone.
And for a lot of it, you’ll get no govt. help.
If you accept what we’re saying, please also accept that you can do little about what’s to come but you can do a LOT about getting rid of these bastards for generations to come.
There are several good initiatives about but we still contend that getting rid of Murdoch as quickly as possible must be at the top of people’s lists of ways to channel anger rather than despair.
We contend none of this would have occurred without Murdoch & #NewsCorpse.
That’s why as we go into a New Year, we’ll redouble our efforts to get to a #MurdochFreeWorld.
Knowing what’s going on & who’s causing it is the first step towards mobilising for a collective better future.
That’s what MFW do: in fact, it’s pretty much ALL we do.
You can’t make people change whose profits depend on them NOT changing.
But you can get rid of them.
IF you do the work.
That’s a big IF.
It requires people to fight, to organise, to leave emotion behind (maybe after thumping a pillow for an hour or two, or having a cry) & then do the work.
Many people find doing something constructive is a great way to deal with anguish.
Behind the scenes here, we certainly do.
Please, witches, stay safe in coming weeks and do your best to prepare (emotionally and practically) for what’s to come.
But never lose sight of who’s to blame and what’s at stake.
We really are in the fight of our lives.
