Mark McGowan’s intransigence is not unfamiliar. When he was the Minister for Education he stared down the Teacher’s Union over a fair and reasonable pay claim later honoured by Colin Barnett. It cost the Alan Carpenter Government the subsequent election. The Premier seems not have learned to listen to rational argument once he has made an emotional commitment to a particular line of action. He is prepared to let the WA economy suffer further damage in order to avoid backing down on decisions he made during the Corona Crisis, rather than review changing circumstances with an open mind. Perhaps it will take another election loss enlighten him.
Mark McGowan’s refusal to compromise on state border ...

Let go of your ‘emotional attachment to certainty.’
Only Leaders are certain and they are often wrong.

Becker’s Hospital Review on the 2009 Swine Flu Pandemic:
WHO declared the swine flu outbreak a pandemic on June 11, 2009.
Between April 12, 2009, and April 10, 2010, the CDC estimates swine flu caused 60.8 million illnesses, 273,304 hospitalizations and 12,469 deaths in the U.S.
WHO declared an end to the pandemic on Aug. 10, 2010.
Globally, an estimated 151,700 to 575,400 people died from swine flu in the first year of the pandemic.
No closed borders. No Lockdowns. No calls for universal vaccination.
More importantly: No Media hype. No mass hysteria.

Consumerism is the narrative that informs modern society. We are hypnotised by the rhetoric of those whose hunger for wealth and power drives the narrative.
