Being inconvenienced for the sake of community health =/= the loss of freedom. Calling it ‘Freedom Day’ is insulting and unsympathetic to those around the world who have had their actual freedoms compromised and forcibly taken from them. Sorry, seeing images of people lining up at midnight to go to KMart etc ‘cause their ‘freedums’ highlights a lot that we shouldn’t be proud of as a community. Am awaiting further stories of abuse etc towards retail workers in the pursuit of people’s freedum!!!
