We are Building Our Own Digital Prison

The following is excerpted from the Epoch Times. Written by Daniel Khmelev.

Critics of the ongoing plans to expand Australia’s digital identity system are warning it could eventually be used to restrict the liberties of its citizens—in a way akin to that already employed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

Currently, using a digital ID—known as myGovID—in Australia is optional and has been rolled out for federal services such as for taxes, welfare, health, education, and social services. However, for people looking to start a new business, a digital ID is compulsory.

Signing up involves providing several identification documents, such as a passport, driver’s licence, etc.

But Prof. John Hartnett—a retired physics research scientist who has worked on cryocooled sapphire oscillators (or “sapphire clocks”) used by the European Space Agency and the Australian military—is not convinced the system will be immune to misuse.

Dictatorship Installed Through the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing (Pandemic Management) Act 2021

Last year I wrote to the Assistant Minister responsible to the Australian Attorney-General to complain about the totalitarian powers that are contained in the Victorian government’s new proposed Bill. The Public Health and Wellbeing (Pandemic Management) Act 2021 is now passed into law and gives the state dictator powers very similar to any total despotic dictatorship. Totally undemocratic. The state dictator can declare a pandemic at a whim (without evidence) and has powers to arrest anyone for any reason, even if he doesn’t like what they say.

Today I got an email reply to that letter.

23 February 2022

The Assistant Minister has requested that the Attorney-General’s Department respond to you on her behalf.

I apologise for the delay in responding to you.

On Civil Disobedience and Arbitrary Power

by Prof Augusto Zimmermann

Gabriël A. Moens AM is Emeritus Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Queensland. He is a leading constitutional law academic and the author of ‘The Constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia Annotated’ (LexisNexis, 9th ed.).

The Hon Robert French, a former Australian Chief Justice, regards Professor Moens’ book as ‘a very useful reference text for students and practitioners at all levels in the field of constitutional law’.

As he was confined to his home office, due to unlawful lockdown measures, Professor Moens found time to look at his previous works which go back about four decades.

Prof. Zimmermann – EMERGENCY POWERS, VACCINE MANDATES, AND CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE

Lecture delivered on October 9th 2021 as part of the Symposium: COVID Vaccines and Law

Click on this link to view it on Rumble.com

An underlying theme in constitutional theory is the notion that the ‘rule of law’ provides at least part of the solution to the problem of political arbitrariness. Australian governments should act within, and in conformity with our tradition of the ‘rule of law’ and constitutionalism. In this context, as John Locke famously stated: “The end of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom”. On this view, the rule of law operates as an umbrella concept for legal-institutional mechanisms that protect us against the arbitrary power of the State. Accordingly, this presentation will discuss whether Australians might have a lawful right to resist governmental measures that unquestionably violate their fundamental legal rights, including lockdowns and vaccine mandates.

Emergency Powers and the Rule of Law

Reposted from Quadrant online.

Written by Augusto Zimmermann September 18, 2021

here is one ambition at least which I ever will acknowledge, which I will not renounce but with my life – it is the ambition of delivering to my posterity those rights of freedom which I have received from my ancestors. I am not pleading the cause of an individual, but of every freeholder in England… Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those who possess it; and this I know, my Lords, that where the law ends, there tyranny begins.                                      

— William Pitt addressing the House of Lords, January 9, 1770 [1]

Since March 2020 Australia’s governments have been using their powers to excessively coerce, obstruct or otherwise unreasonably interfere with the life, liberty and property of the citizen. These governments are exercising emergency powers to impose measures that profoundly undermine basic principles of the rule of law, including equality before the law and the right of citizens to be protected from unpredictable and arbitrary interference with their vital interests. On the pretence of fighting a virus, draconian measures have been adopted that profoundly violate the Australian Constitution and the inalienable rights of the individual.
