I don't think we're being brainwashed, Billy.

This is just the new normal, and we're all in it together.

We're staying home and social distancing and, of course, washing our hands.

We're living in uncertain and unprecedented times and it's essential we stay safe and flatten the curve.

My vocabulary hasn't changed.

You?

Is it safe to say this is going to be 'the new normal' for the next 3 months? (at the least). Groovy! I just have a few conditions.
1 Award me with all the bludging goodies you promised me when you hysterically forced me into redundancy.
2 Don't bug me about not looking for jobs that aren't there.
3. Don't change your do-gooding minds about me drawing my super tax free.
4. Don't ask me to vote/fill out a census/take part in any government information gathering excercise that invariably will not have options for me to voice just how much I hate the Australian government.

I wouldn't be too upset if I never saw the expressions "Zero Contact Delivery" and "Zero Contact Pickup" ever again.

Especially when its in those Dominos Pizza ads that seem to get repeated ad nauseam in every single ad break every day of the week on Channel 10 and its associated channels.

I've not seen those.

"We're all in this together" and "We will get through this" are phrases I'd rather not hear again anytime soon.

Hope they're paying their staff properly now and not under Howard Rules: -

Is No Award - Is No Problem... Boss sets pay rates to suit self like some backward Third World WOP country...

You steal my life when you steal from me the means by which I sustain that life... wage theft should be a hanging offence along with unlawful sacking etc... managerial abuse should be punished with 150 lashes (not the beer)...

https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/how-fear-groupthink-drove-unnecessary-global-lockdowns
My apologies if the link doesn't work.
ZH has many articles of interest.
"The March 16 report by Imperial College epidemiologist Neil Ferguson is credited (or blamed) with causing the U.K. to lock down and contributing to the domino effect of global lockdowns. The model has since come under intense criticism for being “totally unreliable and a buggy mess.”
This is the same Neil Ferguson who in 2005 predicted 200 million could die from the bird flu. Total deaths over the last 15 years turned out to be 455. This is the same Neil Ferguson who in 2009 predicted that 65,000 people could die in the U.K. from the swine flu. The final number ended up around 392. Now, in 2020, he predicted that 500,000 British would die from coronavirus.
His  deeply flawed model led the United States to fear over 2 million deaths and was used to justify locking down nearly the entire nation. Dr. Ferguson is a character of Shakespearean drama and tragedy. His March 17 presentation to British elites on the dire need to take action ironically may have infected Boris Johnson and other top British officials, as Mr. Ferguson himself tested positive for COVID-19 two days later. Then in May he resigned in disgrace after he broke his own quarantine rules to meet clandestinely with a married woman.
But I don’t place most of the blame on people like Ferguson. If you are a hammer everything looks like a nail. I blame government leaders for failing to surround themselves with diverse viewpoints and to think critically for themselves."
Of course our government will never admit to faulty modelling. They will simply tell us that they were advised by the experts and they did what they had to do.
I wonder if Ferguson was one of the experts.
In another article, ZH questions at length the fact that there is no proof that lockdowns work.
I wonder if any studies of the results of lockdowns due to pandemics have actually occurred.

Zero Hedge is a joke of a site
It's misleading use of statistics is laughable

Interestingly it never mentioned Australia
Our infection rate was hundreds a day until the lock down not only flattened the curve, but has actually nearly wiped out the virus in Australia.

i wonder why they never mentioned that?

Billy, you are the only one who is brainwashed, with your conspiracy nonsense
