Lockdownunder resistance grows another arm.

While Tucker and Dave and Paul have been writing us off, and Bojo and Justin have been taking notes, many citizens here in Lockdownunder have been fighting back. We all have our way; I seem to have a special affinity with Alinsky’s Rule 5. If ridicule is indeed man’s most potent weapon, I must be the Robert Oppenheimer of ridicule.

Other folks are taking more practical measures. Such as the new group Open For All. is set to become the public’s go-to resource for finding businesses willing to serve everyone. Consumers can search for participating businesses by geographic area and business type…

The Human Rights Commission warns that “vaccine passports may have significant implications for privacy and autonomy, freedom of movement and association, equity and discrimination, particularly when it comes to accessing everyday services.”

The Commission also states that any blanket COVID-19 policies or conditions “may breach federal discrimination law.”

Legal and ethical implications aside, turning clients and customers away makes little commercial sense. Businesses not only stand to lose those who have not had a COVID-19 vaccine; plenty of vaccinated people also disagree with the idea of a ‘show your papers’ policy and the two-tier society it will create. We’ve seen this in countries like France and Italy, where many vaccinated people protested in solidarity with those who declined the vaccine.

We’re down. But we’re not out.

Here’s a bit more of that Rule 5 work.


  1. I’ve read that the Devil hates laughter – especially at his own expense. That probably goes for his minions, too, so I think you’re definitely on the right track.

    • It started many years ago when I was a volunteer at a community radio station. It was run by a husband and wife team, and it seemed quite appropriate to nickname them Ferdinand and Imelda.

  2. I’d worry the Aussie Gestapo will use the Openforall site as a guide for gestapoing.

    • That’s a risk, of course. But the brazen approach, ‘Here we are, whatcha gonna do about it?’ is worth a try.
