Who said it's all bad news? In the glorious COVID republic of New South Wales, Australia, residents who have been injected twice with the COVID-19 vaccine are about to see some pretty sweet dividends:
Small groups of fully vaccinated people will now be allowed to meet outdoors, but the so-called "picnic rules" are more limited for the 12 local government areas of concern than the rest of the state, and do not come into effect until 13 September.
"In a couple of weeks in the local government areas of concern, families, a household, will now be able to go out for an hour of recreation on top of the hour of exercise," [New South Wales Premier Gladys] Berejiklian said on Thursday.
Just so it's clear, these new rules do not represent some sort of restoration of God-given rights or a rolling back of the restrictions that originally proscribed those rights. No, no! These are "new" freedoms, created ex nihilo by the New South Wales government itself:
It's a deal so good it almost makes you want to move to Australia and endure eighteen months of nightmarish neverending lockdown, just so you can get that sweet sweet extra hour of outdoor rec time.
