Remembrance Day where there’s a lot to remember

Watching the efforts of various state governments in dealing with Covid has, on this day especially, brought this to mind: The conscription issue in Australia. The Covid question at the moment centres on the question of what rights we individually have to refuse the experimental and often dangerous vaxxines that are now being made almost mandatory across the country. Yet this is what happened when on a previous occasion Australian governments wished to send its citizens into harm’s way.

Unlike the other countries engaged in World War I, conscription was not introduced in Australia.  All the Australians who fought in World War I were volunteers.

Prime Minister Billy Hughes made two attempts to introduce conscription: two conscription referenda were held in 1916 and 1917. Both lost to the ‘no’ vote. Feelings on the issue ran high and bitterly divided the community. While many politicians favoured conscription, it was strongly opposed by many in the community.

Also came across this which seems closely related. The story is about Victoria although the American website where this is discussed writes as if it is Australia as a whole that is involved: [Victoria’s] Tyrannical Department of Health Raids Anti-Lockdown Doctor’s Clinic and Seizes Patient’s Confidential Files. How is this possible?

Seven authorized officials from Australia’s Department of Health raided Dr. Mark Hobart’s surgery clinic in Sunshine North on Wednesday afternoon and seized confidential patient files, an appointment book, and other documents after he refused to hand them over to the government….

“Seven authorized officers from the Department of Health and seized my confidential patient’s file and my appointment book and other various documents. They say they’re going to give me an itemized list of what they’ve taken and it was quite an intimidating experience.”…

The Health Department put up a notice on his clinic saying, “The Victorian Government has banned patients from entering this surgery because Dr. Hobart refused to surrender your private and confidential patient files.”

I suspect the story is garbled in a number of ways but the gist of it is sadly all too true. Haven’t seen any of this mentioned in the local press. Videos at the link.

PLUS THIS: Ethical Moorings, Where Art Thou? A very good article which discusses the morality of imposing a vaxxine-imperative.

When you’re threatened with the loss of your livelihood, indeed your entire career, you have been forced. When you’re denied a kidney transplant otherwise, you have been forced. When it’s the price you must pay to carry boxes of belongings into a retirement home for the benefit of an aging relative, you have been forced.

Any politician who thinks it’s OK to force people to submit to any kind of medical procedure is a tyrant. Such people deserve to be ejected from office asap. They are dangerous, because tomorrow they’ll be forcing us to do something else.

Any public health official or medically trained individual who thinks it’s OK to compel people to submit to any medical procedure has left first do no harm so far behind, their judgment concerning every other medical matter is forever suspect.

Of course, read it all at the link.

  1. Ignored Remembrance Day for the first time for many years by order of her indoors.
    She was concerned I would be locked up for attacking blue collared fascists. She may have had a point.
    So many of my father’s mates died fighting the Nazis. Now the fascists are rubbing their noses in it. Nothing I can think of to express my contempt for our Governments. Not without foul language.

  2. Hippocratic Oath
    I swear by Apollo the physician, and Asclepius, and Hygieia and Panacea and all the gods and goddesses as my witnesses, that, according to my ability and judgement, I will keep this Oath and this contract:

    To hold him who taught me this art equally dear to me as my parents, to be a partner in life with him, and to fulfill his needs when required; to look upon his offspring as equals to my own siblings, and to teach them this art, if they shall wish to learn it, without fee or contract; and that by the set rules, lectures, and every other mode of instruction, I will impart a knowledge of the art to my own sons, and those of my teachers, and to students bound by this contract and having sworn this Oath to the law of medicine, but to no others.

    I will use those dietary regimens which will benefit my patients according to my greatest ability and judgement, and I will do no harm or injustice to them.

    I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.

    In purity and according to divine law will I carry out my life and my art.

    I will not use the knife, even upon those suffering from stones, but I will leave this to those who are trained in this craft.

    Into whatever homes I go, I will enter them for the benefit of the sick, avoiding any voluntary act of impropriety or corruption, including the seduction of women or men, whether they are free men or slaves.

    Whatever I see or hear in the lives of my patients, whether in connection with my professional practice or not, which ought not to be spoken of outside, I will keep secret, as considering all such things to be private.

    So long as I maintain this Oath faithfully and without corruption, may it be granted to me to partake of life fully and the practice of my art, gaining the respect of all men for all time. However, should I transgress this Oath and violate it, may the opposite be my fate.

  3. Steve, all I can say in reference to Remembrance Day & all that this once meant – is that the Australia for which so many sacrificed their lives, no longer exists. I say this with the deepest anguish that I can recall, outside of personal tragedies.

    Australia, post the two world wars, is too altered socially and politically to bear any strong resemblance to the “Lucky Country” of old.

    Re the closing of Dr. Mark Hobart’s surgery & the confiscation of his patients” medical files: an extensive video of the seizure of the files by the officers (whoever they were) can be seen on Rumble. As you will know, Dr. Hobart was one of only two GPs who publicly acknowledged their willingness to prescribe Ivermectin.

    I would hope that at least one of the growing number of Victorian QCs & SCs who have signed the petition against the Dan’s legislative bill for continuing power will help this good doctor.

  4. Hippocratic Oaf
    I swear by Faluchi the Bureaucrat, and CDC, and Hysteria and Big pharma and all the Civil Servants and unelected dictators as my witnesses, that, according to my ability and judgement, I will keep this Oath and this contract:

    To hold xir who taught me this art extremely dear to my parents, to be a debtor in life with it, and to obey xirs needs when required; to look upon his directives as equals to my own testicles, and to teach them this art, if they shall wish to learn it, with massive fees and contracts; and that by the AHPRA, fines, and threats of deregistration, I will impart a fear of the bureaucrat to my own sons, and those of my patients, and to students bound by this contract and having sworn this Oath to the law of AHPRA, but to no others.

    I will not use those dietary regimens which will benefit my patients according to my greatest ability and judgement, because it may cause social injustice to them.

    I will give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, and will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.

    In great wealth and according to administrative law will I carry out my life and my art.

    I will not use the Trump promoted drugs, even upon those suffering from Covid, but I will leave this to Vaccine manufacturers who are promoting their drugs

    I dont do home visits.

    Whatever I see or hear in the lives of my patients, whether in connection with my professional practice or not, which ought not to be spoken of outside, I will put on twitter, especially such things as deformed privates

    So long as I maintain this Oaf faithfully and with corruption, may it be granted to me to partake of wealth fully and the pushing of pills, gaining the respect of all xirs for all time. However, should I transgress this Oaf and do the right thing, may AHPRA be my fate.

  5. Arky, it’s my understanding that the Hippocratic Oath has long since been superceded among the medical profession by various alternatives put forward by the various speciality colleges.

  6. because tomorrow they’ll be forcing us to do something else.

    And that’s the point, not any reason in any particular instance. Any fool can come up with a reason, but it takes a bigger fool to accept an exception with not even a promise, let alone a guarantee, and even that would be foolish.

    John McAfee was right – power only enables bad emotions. Good emotions have no use of it.

  7. I was at the Royal North Shore Hospital at 11am today. Loudspeakers cackled into life, a polite request to observe a minutes silence was issued, and I assume it was across the whole hospital.
    In my line of sight the request was instantly and respectfully taken up with people standing quietly. And for a full minute too.
    Good show all. The bureaucrats could have used dozens of excuses to not do it.
