The long-suffering people of Australia are once again being subjected to tyrannical restrictions of their individual freedoms in the name of fighting COVID. A recent AP article describes the recent protests of the COVID restrictions. What's missing in the article?

When it comes to the chronic, existential crisis of keeping America a Constitutional Republic, we are in the autumn. With faith in ourselves and the Creator, this too shall pass. Christians and Jews have endured much greater tyranny than what some of our current political leaders have in mind for us.
This is just the beginning. The Democrats will announce (safe prediction) a "climate crisis", after or even before the COVID-19 crisis is over in order to justify more spending and greater control of the economy. This will open the door more massive Green New Deal spending and regulation.
