Will Novac Djokovic win?
One of the consequences of the lockdown, safeism and pharma-defined pseudo-pandemic, is an inversion of logic relating to ‘health’.
One of the consequences of the lockdown, safeism and pharma-defined pseudo-pandemic, is an inversion of logic relating to ‘health’. Elite sport stars are well named. Those who achieve sporting greatness are tiny in number – a true elite based on merit. But the number that attain sporting greatness and maintain it, over a protracted period, is much smaller.
The greatest sports stars may have an inherent genetic advantage. The best basketball players need to be tall, lean and athletic. Great swimmers need to have a bizarre collection of physical idiosyncrasies, including, apparently, huge feet. But that’s just the starting point: they need the single-mindedness and determination to keep up with a gruelling training schedule that is unrelenting from childhood. They need parents willing to provide the financial and emotional support. They need to build the skills necessary to give them the edge in their chosen field. And, more than anything else, they need the intellect and psychological advantage to allow them to win – time after time until they are the greatest in the world. In the process of doing all this the greatest sports stars may become a little self-obsessed and health-obsessed, but the dividends are huge. They hone their bodies to perfection – because their health, and the decisions they make that relate to it, are more important than anything else in maintaining greatness and vast financial rewards.
Novak Djokovic is just 34 years old and has already won 20 grand slam tennis tournaments. He has won the Australian Open nine times. We don’t know his Covid vaccination status but when he arrived in Australia yesterday the authorities decided to refuse him entry on the grounds that he did not meet entry rules. Presumably this means that he could not show full vaccination status and that recent recovery from Covid was not deemed sufficient grounds for exemption.
A super-elite sports-star at the pinnacle of human health and fitness being refused entry to defend his title (on health grounds) really isn’t a good look for this increasingly despotic nation. Scott Morrison, Australia’s hapless Prime Minister, has overseen a policy that looks desperate as Covid cases surge. 90% of Australia’s population over the age of 16 has been “vaccinated” and, yet, Covid ‘cases’ continue to rise and deaths attributed to Covid have been increasing markedly from the middle of 2021. By definition, and based on Australia’s own data, the vaccination programme has coincided with a huge failure of the programme’s objectives.
And now, being held in detention in a hotel near Melbourne, is an elite sports star who is a testament to non-intervention, non-vaccination and bodily autonomy. A man at the peak of physical health in a nation that has clearly decided to turn its back on science, the enlightenment and liberty – coercing its people into receiving a medical intervention that clearly isn’t working.
Novak’s father absolutely seized the moment when he claimed, "This is not just a fight for Novak, but a fight for the whole world”. He’s right. This is a fight for the survival of individual free thought and free choice. When one of the members of the world’s greatest sporting elite challenges anti-science nonsense being spouted by bureaucratic pedants, the world will take notice.
Meanwhile the BBC and other signatories to the Trusted News Initiative (the misinformation initiative designed to stifle dissenting opinions) will have trouble dealing with this one. A sporting superstar being held hostage by Australian authorities for showing up to defend his title, while maintaining his right to decide what is or isn’t injected into his body.
It’s just January, but this is the story of the year. And, bizarrely, the free world might just owe this brave and brilliant young man a massive debt of gratitude when he inevitably wins. Because he knows how to win.
