So, have the ‘hippie’ hipsters of Byron Bay figured out how the new global establishment party at Davos has played them for fools all these years?

They don’t care about saving the earth and they never will; it’s just been a ruse to whip up passionate mobs demanding global governance and regulatory overkill at the expense of sovereign power through endless do-good treaties by which every government in Australia is now enslaved, and thus we too. So, one case of Coronavirus and the premier of NSW is given 45 minutes of primetime to promote irrational fear, jabs, and all the rest of it under the headline ‘Covid-19 Crisis’. (What would 100 cases be, time to book a padded cell?). One case and a $100 million festival is crushed and all the little plebs can pick up the pieces and tough luck. So, the UN, WTO, WHO global Agenda 2030 rolls on in all its world-saving glory and the ‘anti-establishment’ Byronites just pop another Quaalude, pray for world peace, wet the bed, and roll over. Bluesfest indeed.
