Americans have been going craycray over Austraystray. From Fox News to social media, images of Australia's lockdowns are being presented as a descent into totalitarianism. The concern-mongering came to a head with an article in The Atlantic by Conor Friedersdorf entitled "Australia Traded Away Too Much Liberty: How long can a democracy maintain emergency restrictions and still call itself a free country?" Josh responded with a 25-tweet rebuttal which went viral.
