Is this a portent of what lies ahead here? Power-mad leaders in Western ostensibly democratic nations seem to be enamored of the controls over their own citizenry they seized when the Chinese virus first hit. Even as the death toll from COVID variants declines as transmissibility increases (following the normal pattern of virus mutation), some nations resort again to the heretofore unthinkable notion of quarantining the healthy majority, not the sick.
And now, military forces are being called in to supplement police, who feel unable to contain the popular resistance.
The left-wing Guardian newspaper is upset, mainly because racial minorities are going to be affected in New South Wales, Australia's most populous state:
The deployment of troops to enforce Sydney's lockdown could alienate the community and fuel vaccine hesitancy, particularly in the hard-hit western suburbs where many Indigenous Australians and migrants and refugees live, community groups and residents are warning.
Three hundred defence personnel are preparing to be deployed on Sydney's streets on Monday after New South Wales police made a formal request for their help. They'll undergo training at the weekend before joining police on the streets as they enforce a sixth week of lockdown.
Interestingly, the article makes no mention of European-heritage Aussies and their reactions to the military being called up to keep them locked in their homes, except this:
Another resident from Bankstown, who asked not to be named, said people were going to be frightened to see soldiers on the street: "If the military knocks on doors, people are going to be scared and angry.
"It absolutely will not have the desired effect. You can't have the desired effect on people who've been ignored by the government for 20, 30 years. The government is trying to help them — you think they're going to believe that any more?"

Are gun sales Down Under on the rise?
Shelias have become chubby?
Hell is coming to breakfast.
I don’t think they can have guns anymore, unless they dig up the ones they buried.
They gave up all their guns. So basically they are slaves now. Only free men have firearms to keep themselves free.
They’ve been socialists for a long time.
Its as bad or worse than Canada in terms of guns and self defense
Worse. I guess. Down unDUH FReepers? And why is it okay for the troops to be out?
Everyone has become chubby since this COVID nonsense started. I have been casually noticing that lately you don’t see as many slim people as formerly, especially women and girls.
Australians shouldn’t have give up their weapons
Stand and fight, or kneel in subjugation!
Australia. This is your moment to decide your destiny!
Over throw the corrupt cops, government, and military!
Soldiers will never fire on Mom and Dad!
Trust me, that’s the only truth young men believe, is that Mom and Dad are good people, who know right from wrong.
The sodding base commander, is not to be trusted!!!
Now they know why they were disarmed.
And easier for the coming Chinese takeover.
"Shelias have become chubby?"
Not safe for high blood pressure sufferers.
We are not a democracy. We are a representative republic.
So not taking the vaccine makes one overweight?
