I was a little shocked at the first article about Australia and COVID protocols undermining their democracy. However, it was very eye-opening to another perspective. On the other hand, my partner is an Australian citizen with a severe disability. The extra protocols in place make him feel like the system cares about him as one of the most vulnerable in the population. He sees what is happening here in America and worries more for my life as a disabled American than he does for his. He looks at the (hopefully) temporary loss of freedoms as worth the trade-off for his life. He questions why places like the US value freedoms over protecting their most vulnerable populations.
