Someone recently asked me… “John, why are you always so unhappy?”
My immediate response to this question was… “Because there’s a whole lot to be unhappy about.”
But now, having had a little more time to ponder and consider what may have been a more worthy and substantial response to such a question, please allow me to elaborate…
For my failure to comply to the insane nonsensical rules and dictates of our newly formed global totalitarian order—
For refusing to have my nostrils and throat assaulted with a cotton bud every 72 hours in order to retain my job, or even enter the premises of my employment—
For refusing to be injected with a ‘largely untested and hastily rolled out gene altering substance’ which I discovered through many hours of my own painstaking research, may BLOODY WELL KILL ME!—or, DAMAGE ME FOR LIFE—before being allowed admittance into a public hospital for ‘MUCH NEEDED MEDICAL TREATMENT’—
I lost a steady well paying job of four years.
I lost a substantial whack of my income and life savings…. somewhere in the region of AU$160,000.
Lost a whole lot of friends.
Got offside with, and was all but shutout by a number of close family members.
Was generally made to feel like a leper who’d lost his mind.
Was publicly vilified by my own democratically elected government.
Was considered by wider society to be dangerous and irresponsible.
Was prevented from entering shops, pubs, clubs or partaking in social functions and public gatherings.
Was becoming highly concerned with talk of imprisonment for those refusing vaccination.
My overall health and well-being suffered substantially.
My nervous system was absolutely put through the wringer and just about shot to ribbons.
My well laid plans of forming a new band.. (something I was getting pretty darn excited about)... were absolutely blown to pieces!
My entire life was pretty much derailed and upended.
I was ostracised, vilified, gas-lit and (still to this very day) am largely viewed to be a nut by 70% of those I once had fairly good and solid relations with.
Well… I guess that’s some of it anyway.

Agreed, but for some reason I feel more prepared to resist this time. Last time I think a lot of it was just pure shock that the world had gone collectively insane within the span of a few months.
I was in the same boat but it started for me with facemask mandates. After a brutal rape where my nose and mouth was held against a pillow until I passed out, I can NOT wear anything which covers my nose for longer than I can hold my breath. I begin hyperventilating and pass out. And facemask use was brutally enforced in Thailand during most of 2021, to the point where there were calls for deportation of farang who flouted the rules (which required you to wear one at all times in public, even while driving a car/motorbike). So I could barely leave the land, with the added bonus that if I had needed any type of medical care under any circumstances whatsoever, I would have to forgo it. If I broke my leg in a motorbike accident say I was going to be staying at home splinting it myself with a few bottles of whiskey to ease the pain. I found it so sad when there were calls to deny medical care to the unvaccinated as I already could not get any. It's only been very recently that I could get medical care!
