MSM Article Shames Those Who Refuse Contact Tracing App COVIDSafe


An MSM article shames and blames those who refuse to use the surveillance (contact tracing) app COVIDSafe launched by the Australian Government.

COVIDsafe, the new surveillance and privacy-violating app

launched by the Australian Government, has exceeded over 5 million downloads in a country whose population is around 25 million. That means 20% of Australians have bought the fear and propaganda around COVID-19 to the extent that they would willingly give up their privacy and liberty for a bit of purported security. The backend of the app runs on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform, allowing Jeff Bezos’ Amazon corporation (and thus the US Government, with which it is joined at the hip) to potentially seize the data of Australian citizens. The coronavirus crisis has had its fair share of propagandistic terms: the new normal, flatten the curve, contact tracing (a buzzphrase meaning nothing more than surveillance), and now the name for the new app, COVIDSafe, yet another typical example of the way governments exploit safety to become tyrannical (‘we’re only violating and enslaving you to protect public health and safety’).

COVIDSafe: Who Controls the Data?

The COVIDSafe app is a clear power grab – specifically a data grab – and a way to accelerate the surveillance agenda. We’re going to look at a couple of mainstream articles on the topic. The first is from a mainstream yet thoughtful perspective. This article from states:

“This contact tracing model is also not open source software, and as such is not subject to audit or oversight. As it has currently been deployed in Singapore, it also places a government authority in control of the transfer of valuable contact and connection details.”

It then warns about the voluntary becoming permanent (without realizing this is the exact way governments operate when they role out tyrannical regulations – they weaken resistance by initially making them temporary and voluntary only to make them mandatory later):

“And in the apps created to respond to particular situations, there’s always the question of: “who owns the data?”. A pandemic-tracing app would need to have a limited lifetime, even if the user forgets to uninstall the COVID-19 app after victory has been declared over the pandemic. It must not become the de facto operational scenario – this would have major societal ramifications.”

The 2nd MSM Article: Shaming and Blaming Those Who Don’t Want to be Surveilled or Vaxxed

The second article People who refuse to download the COVIDSafe virus tracing app are the new anti-vaxxers is pure MSM (Mainstream Media) trash. It’s kinda painful to read such rubbish but it’s useful once in a while to remember the state of mind and state of being of some people, who are too afraid and brainwashed to understand the inflated threat of COVID. Some of these people are even vociferously advocating for their own enslavement. This article shames and bashes those who refuse the Orwellian contact tracing app, comparing them to anti-vaxxers. Here’s a list of the insults the article contains:

– accuses those with genuine privacy concerns about the app of being selfish;

– mocks those who are concerned the app will drain their phone’s battery life;

– claims those who oppose vaccination (anti-vaxxers) “compromise public health with their dangerous messaging.” This is a common and fallacious claim of pro-vaxxers. The idea is that those who don’t vaccinate endanger the rest of society, but if vaccines work, then the vaccinated have nothing to fear. If vaccines are truly effective, then the vaccinated are saved and protected, and the unvaccinated would only harm themselves. This is clear and obvious, yet many pro-vaxxers fall into this trap of illogic by touting vaccine-induced herd immunity, which is a pseudoscientific myth;

– accuses those who won’t download the app as “hindering public health with their fearmongering claim that their privacy is at risk.” Hmm. What about the fearmongering claim that COVID is a unprecedented killer virus, despite the fact that’s never been isolated, never been proven to cause all the disease attributed to it and has not been shown to be any worse than an ordinary seasonal flu?;

– claims truth researchers and conspiracy analysts are delusional (“Like delusional conspiracy theorists, they appear to believe that the government’s COVIDSafe app is some Big Brother-style super surveillance system”);

– claims people’s lives are so boring the government would never want to spy on them (“believe the government wants to spy on their mundane, prosaic, boring suburban lives”). This is in line with the nefarious argument that “if you’ve got nothing to hide, just give up your rights and privacy” which governments have used for decades to justify mass surveillance;

– makes the ridiculous claim that the app is “tracing” not “tracking” (these 2 verbs mean the same thing; sad how someone can be so easily tricked just because authorities put in a different verb for the exact same action and program);

– claims “you only authorise use of the information it collects if you are diagnosed with COVID-19” not realizing government will suck up all the data it can from users;

– claims it is “hugely beneficial in our fight against the virus” which is based upon a flawed understanding of the nature of viruses and how they spread;

– buys the party line that to “continue to save lives, reduce restrictions and get the economy back on its feet the government needs us to take up this technological tool as a protective measure” not explaining in any way the hypothetical chain of cause-and-effect of how this surveillance app is supposed to magically save lives;

– believes the government will delete the data later on “once the pandemic is over, all stored information will be deleted.” The author deserves a free membership to Naivety Anonymous for that one; and

– concludes with another swipe at anti-vaxxers, blaming them for “selfish choices [which] have led to babies dying of whooping cough.” No evidence presented or required apparently.

So this is the mentality of some people. It makes it harder for those who simply want freedom for everyone, however as Morpheus said in The Matrix, some people are so inured and dependent on the System, they are not ready to be unplugged:

“The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”

Final Thoughts

The agenda is clear: promote surveillance and the violation of privacy using the virus as an excuse. The propaganda is clear: make alleged COVID positives into social pariahs and claim the government must restrict freedom in order to protect public health. Even if you believe the killer virus narrative, numerous epidemiologists (such as Knut Wittkowski) and doctors (such as Dr. Dan Erickson) have said the best way to deal with respiratory viruses is to allow healthy people free movement so as to let people’s immune systems deal with it, and for the community to develop a natural herd immunity, while letting only the sick, elderly or fragile quarantine (voluntarily). It’s common sense, however just like any other New World Order agenda, common sense, truth and logic has been inverted to make way for the grand scheme to command and control the world.

Some sanity for an insane world. Thank you.

I couldn’t believe it when I read her article in the Brisbane paper. Wow, what an agenda. I had to seek her down on Instagram and ask if her pockets were lined well for that article – it’s a low, yet ballsy move to push that hardline stance. Nice work Makia more people in Australia need to read this.

When they artificially inflate death toll numbers by listing almost EVERY death as a – COVID-19 death, it’s easy to have “millions” of worldwide pandemic casualties.

Best response is in the article…
“The idea is that those who don’t vaccinate endanger the rest of society, but if vaccines work, then the vaccinated have nothing to fear.”
If you want to pack an app and stay away from me that is fine I would rather have it that way… just don’t make me walk in your shoes if I don’t want to.

Yes, WGN! Thank you for teasing this out and sharing in the comments. I am going to add Makia’s brilliant logic to my argument arsenal!

Having seen millions of humans waking up and bringing their own brand of joy to the world over the last few years, the Controllers are pulling out all the stops with this NWO tyranny. Regardless of how desperate the scenario appears, we must be spiritual warriors and continue doing whatever we do with as much Divine Love as we can muster!

Thank you, Makia, for your tireless efforts. You inspire me to make music more often, to cook healthy vegan food, to exercise in the fresh air, and to love ever more my husband, family, friends, neighbors. Also I have compassion even for those vindictive people because they are the most traumatized of all (of course, that doesn’t mean I’m becoming besties with them!). Finally, I am finding ways to continue learning and to share my research/truth-seeking in so many ways.

Makia Freeman May 14, 2020 - 1:52 pm

Hi Sharine, Thanks for your comments. So glad I have inspired you in such positive ways. Thanks for doing what you’re doing!!

Thanks, Makia – Right on The Money.

only the fearful will try to shame those with common sense. until this silly covid flu was dreamed up no one gave a thought to yearly flu. but now this flu is being compared to the black death,even though most people do not know of anyone who was sick from it. the hype and hysteria has created an invisible monster that the majority believes will get them . smh. “death comes for us all’,hiding and being afraid won’t save anyone.

here is something i found with my wild plant and chemistry hobby.
i use over 200 wild plants they are amazing.

For eons the tropical tribes used tree bark extract for fevers from microbes ,malaria of course. When the brits were stealing the resources of africa they called it tonic,very bitter. they mixed it with sweet juice and their rations of gin. it worked . it became the most popular treatment for almost everything, Quinine,the favorite bark was the fever tree or cincho tree. Life is simple when you don’t listen to the medical complex. water,cholorine and quinine = Hydrochloroquine. of course it is not tested “fauci” its too cheap and doesn’t have the other nasties the coming vaccine will have.

In Australia we know politicians lie all the time, why believe them now re the tracking/tracing app. Also, is it a coincidence that the Australian govt. had this app. available so immediately, who developed it so quickly? or, was it always there waiting for an excuse to surveil the population. Cases here came via passengers off cruise ships and airlines, very little community spread otherwise.
