Why every Kiwi should celebrate High Court ruling on mandates

‘Not demonstrably justified’: High Court upholds challenge to Police and NZDF vaccination mandates, terminations suspended

A High Court challenge questioning the legality of Covid-19 vaccination mandates for Police and Defence Force employees has been upheld, with the court determining that the government mandate is an unjustified incursion on the Bill of Rights.

The Dumb Lives Matter Protestors & the never vaxxers think this is an enormous moral, political and legal win for them when in reality it’s proof positive the system is actually working.

As a post-marxist anarchist environmental socialist I detest the State up in my grills as much as the next free individual, but I agree with this curtailing of my civil liberties for the public good.

That extraordinary power over us by the State in the middle of pandemic MUST be challenged every day of the week, and when that mandate is too onerous, the legal side swings into action and pushes back on State power.

This is great news for all of us, it’s the moment when the law says that the State’s caution no longer trumps the individual’s rights.

It doesn’t mean that the mandates weren’t legal or necessary in the past, it just means that Omicron is such a weaker variant than the previous variants that it no longer warrants the emergency level powers over us as individuals.

That’s evidence of our system working!

Good. There was always a point when the mandates would come down, so their removal isn’t a loss for the Government.

Critics seem to believe that Labour want to keep the mandates for nefarious reasons which is bullshit. The Government desperately needs the economy to get back on track and will drop the mandates as soon as they can.

This High Court win is a win for everyone.
