Divide and rule

Disappointed to see this piece of amateur crap in the Post. Personally I believe the Andrew’s Government has delivered a consistently high standard of performance under highly demanding circumstances. You are welcome to your own opinion but never expected such a trite and juvenile offering. In case you have forgotten we have all been dealing with a pandemic, not a picnic. No response expected or required.

I find the cartoon by Natasha Williams-Novak 'Divide and Rule', offensive.

Peter, your comment opens up an interesting discussion. I probably wouldn't have published an anti-anti-vaxxer cartoon because it would feel like picking on a minority who already feel under siege. And perhaps that’s the point. While most of us are ready to move on with our lives, the unvaxxed and anti-vaxxers can’t. Naturally they are more obsessive about a subject that the rest of are sick of.

I don't think they are being picked on. The choice not to be vaccinated has consequences for disease control; those who refuse to be vaccinated are the ones creating the division, as is their anti science campaign. The divide and conquer rhetoric is just more of the conspiracy theory - what on earth would the point be. It is not helpful to promote their point of view, and it's of no purpose other than a tiny minority's gratification.
