The Western Australia Premier has recently ordered 75 per cent of WA’s workforce to get vaccinated or face job losses or a possible $20,000 fine. Mark McGowan has also decided that he won’t be opening the state borders to unvaccinated people.
A major objective seems to be the preparation of the citizen for a docile surrender of all their fundamental rights, always in the name of an overly protective, benevolent state. In the name of the “health” of the people, politicians can now happily implement the most unthinkable and atrocious perversities.
In the midst of such human-rights violations, there is the tacit support of the Prime Minister. Not only has Scott Morrison been tacitly supporting these arbitrary measures, but also objectively misleading the population by claiming that the Federal Government has no ability to ‘override’ any State laws and Executive orders that mandate vaccines and violate other fundamental rights of the citizen.
The rise and growth of international law has increased the size and significance of Australia’s external affairs. The principle that the external affairs power now extends to allow the federal government to regulate any matters related to the protection of fundamental rights is commonly accepted by the courts.
The Australian Constitution, in its Section 51 (xxix), says:
The Parliament shall, subject to this Constitution, have power to make laws for the peace, order, and good government of the Commonwealth with respect to… (xxix) external affairs
The phrase ‘external affairs’ refers to persons, places, matters, or things geographically external to Australia. It enables the federal Parliament to pass any law concerning topics related to the protection of human rights, including the prohibition of compulsory vaccination.
