The Australian government has made millions of dollars for corona fines. A pregnant woman was arrested for being against the lockdowns. A different woman got tazed for refusing to wear a mask. I could go on, but you get the picture. These lockdowns are a gift to authoritarians everywhere. Fear is the most efficient way to rule the populace. Sent to prison for wrongthink... How anyone could support this is beyond my understanding. And now we have Biden saying he'd extend the shut down until a vaccine appears, that's absurd! The increasing civil unrest due to lockdowns and mask mandates is making for a very tense situation all across the western world.

I'm assuming warmpotato is your YouTube channel. I don't think you're merely named after them.

Anyway, yes they should stop. Not wearing a mask puts other people at risk of catching the virus from you, and it also protects you from catching the virus. Now, I'm not for the government crushing dissent, but social distancing should be enforced on all protests during this crisis, that includes anti-lockdown protests. If you don't social distance, your protest should be deemed an illegal assembly.

QFT, *like*

This contains the disease. When I sees guys +/- 40 whining about masking I can't help but wonder if they will ever growing up

Indeed. The government should adhere to its own laws. When they don't there is an issue with hypocrisy and as such dissenting voices from different views.

Although I will say the whole point of protest is to complain about policy and this is an issue of when freedom of speech should apply I guess. :hmm:

In my country (the U.S.), the government can restrict rights if there is a compelling interest to do so, such as health and safety issues. Plus, it's not like this would ban protests. It would just make them abide to some regulations during this crisis, with rights and public safety balanced.

There is a difference between fighting for freedom and fighting because of a conspiracy theory you see on the internet. Some people just don't realize that.
