Late Stage Capitalism Lockdown: 101 days of Delta – The biggest loser & my biggest fear

Late Stage Capitalism in 3 shots

101 days of de facto house arrest and we have collectively lost our shit.

Domestic violence is at unspeakable levels.

Food Banks are seeing a 600% spike in demand.

Poverty and overcrowding are becoming weaponised by Covid.

Our mental health is shot to hell.

After 101 days of Delta lockdown – we are very angry, very frightened and very horny.

We are going to be a handful this Christmas.

The biggest loser in all of this are the Double Vaxxed Aucklanders who did all they were asked and yet still have to remain with the State up in our grills demanding mass surveillance wherever we go while still having our civil liberties curtailed.

Every time double vaxxed Aucklanders have questioned why they can’t get their freedom back the Woke have screamed ‘RACIST ABLEIST PRIVILEGE’ and accused them of enabling a ‘modern genocide’ against Maori.

My biggest fear in all of this however is that all Aucklanders were really asked was to stay at home and we could barely do that!

What if the next sacrifice actually requires us to do something more than Netflix and chill?

We deserve what is coming.

Embrace the Apocalypse.

And here’s Tom with the weather.

  1. and in NZ it’s largely household debt, specifically giving mortgages to those who can’t afford to service them in order to inflate the market…hello Fanny Mae mk2

    …..never mind LINO will find a way to bail out karen and kev at our expense

  2. Double vacuum does not make you safe or safe to be around. This pandemic is not over and social health measures have to keep in place. Wear a mask, wash your hands. stay two m apart. Don’t travel to vulnerable districts. You fucking selfish dumb Auckland wankers.

      • Well he is correct tho.
        any case that will come after Auckland Freedom Day will be courtesy to selfish Aucklanders who feel that they have a right to a holiday in someone elses town, village and fuck them, Aucklanders are deserving of a holiday! The rest of NZ can just hunker down and wait for Aucklanders to travel back home Right?

        • Some of us Aucklanders are happy to stay in Auckland over summer and beyond. I don’t get this desire people have to go somewhere else over the summer and Christmas. Life isn’t going to be as it was a year ago for some time.

          As an Aucklander, I’ve been avoiding having as much contact as possible with other Aucklanders over the last year. Always thought there’d be another outbreak here before the end of 2021 (just seeing what was happening in Aussie). And Aucklanders are cursed with having the most MIQ facilities on our doorstep.

          Also, while most Aucklanders have been following the guidelines and rules, there’s some ignorant people who don’t seem to give a shit about themselves or anyone else. A few don’t wear masks, then put their faces in other people’s safe spaces and talk to them/us when we’re out an about.

          Also, while the vax gives good protection and lowers risks, for many of us, our immunity will be at it’s lowest ebb when NZ starts opening up. I’m due for a booster about last week of January, just a couple of weeks after NZers start flowing back from Aussie without a need to go to MIQ.

          Vaccines help, but all the other basics still hold for all Kiwis – mask, physical distancing, hygiene, and limiting contacts especially avoiding crowded indoor spaces.

          And now we have the looming threat internationally of the Omicron variant. Certainly not going to be BAU any time soon. And quite a few NZers, inside and outside Auckland need to wake up and see the reality – especially the tourist, hospo, and real estate industries.

          Meanwhile the divisions and inequalities in NZ society are being increasingly exposed. Likely to be more tough times ahead.

    • A majority of Aucklanders arent from Auckland. There are a lot of south islanders here too. Probably more than you may think.

  3. The majority of Aucklanders don’t actually give one anymore. They are just looking for an alternative right now. And I believe people in hospitality, tourism, retail and close contact businesses had to wear a little bit more than stay at home – for some their livelihoods are on life support.

    • No one in this country gives a fudge about hte people you just mentioned.
      It is not as if they were important pundits working from home full time on full pay.
