We have entered the wonderful new world warned by Aldous Huxley. There, important policies and new laws are announced in press releases without warning.
Our federal and state legislatures have enacted legislation and have relinquished their responsibility to shape government policy into unelected, irresponsible, appointed “experts.” In just one year, Canada simply renounces personal freedom and well-being, at least from a country whose purpose is to value democracy, personal freedom, human rights, entrepreneurship, employment, prosperity, etc. That’s right. “Supporting the blockade of the government has become a matter of morality. It’s as if your value as a human is determined by how much you give up your own needs and rights for the benefit claimed by others.
Freedom, personal responsibility, social ties, ambitions and entrepreneurship have been sacrificed in the government’s cry to protect us all from the virus.
Canada has become a polarized society. Some are afraid to die from COVID, while others believe that the danger is exaggerated and the risk is low. The idea of acting with due diligence applies only in one direction towards a “life-saving” attempt from COVID, but no attention is paid to saving people from the harm caused by the blockade.
In the United States, political party affiliation reflects an individual’s willingness to stay socially distant and wear a mask. According to one survey, 63% of Democrats (on the left side of the political spectrum) said they should always wear masks, while only 29% of Republicans (on the right side) agreed. In addition, 23% of Republicans felt that masks should not be worn at all, or should rarely be worn.
We are called “together”, but we live in a new “ordinary” where humans are encouraged, isolated and separated, covering their faces and masking their facial expressions. I will. People who cannot or do not want to wear a mask are considered selfish or politically remarks, even if they have a genuine medical condition. People without masks are a visible target for new COVID morals because of conscience, religious beliefs, respiratory restriction, PTSD, claustrophobia, and skin reaction discomfort. Many people wear masks to avoid conflict and social disapproval, and some seem to consider their masks to meet the demands of the group as a symbol of their superior virtues.
Masks were previously reserved for criminals, robbers, rapists, Ku Klux Klan, cults, and Halloween. In our new normal, everyone wants to actively participate in a new political experiment that has never been attempted in human history, imposing permanent or at least indefinite limits on the entire population. It does not mean. Stores discriminate against maskless shoppers, even if they have a legally valid medical exemption from a society where grocery stores call the police when a masked person enters the store. We have moved to a society that refuses. All humans are assumed to be vectors of gait disease, despite medical and scientific evidence showing that healthy asymptomatic people are not significant spreaders of the virus.
Some Canadians are very much in favor of sacrificing personal liberties for greater profits, even if blockades and restrictions last for more than a year, declining business and destroying jobs. , Increasing youth suicide and eating disorders, and taking opioid deaths to new and catastrophic levels. Despite the fact that more than 97.6% of people can survive COVID and do not pose a serious threat to 90% of Canadians under the age of 70 who do not have a particular health condition, we are still dominated by fear. I am. Promoted in March 2020.
Moral panics against masks appear to have only increased, despite government data and statistics that currently prove that the horror horror of March 2020 was not factual. Some people are pushing for forced vaccines as the next frontier of a never-ending war with viruses that have little impact on life expectancy of the population through public policy based on fear rather than fact. It’s already been said that the Covid vaccine isn’t a two-dimensional computer screen, it’s needed to enjoy work, shopping, traveling, and interacting with others. It is already being sold as a new magic bullet to reopen society and end the blockade.
As Canadian politicians continue to move our law towards COVID vaccine passports, we have two well-defined citizen classes. The person who gets the jab has privileges, and the rest are restricted and alienated. And quite a few Canadians think this two-tier system is perfectly fine.
“Social control over a large population is achieved by fear, intimidation, and suppression of free thought,” said Laura Ingraham of Fox News. “It is also important to coordinate the people through propaganda.” By questioning the government’s COVID description, it has been quickly removed from all major social media platforms such as Google, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.
The usual of this new blockade is that genuine human connections are despised, even if not completely banned, as if people could survive and prosper without hugs or direct gatherings. We are convinced that it is important to eliminate the virus at the expense of further human needs in order to restart the economy. But we believe that the foundation of democracy is freedom and freedom, and that democracies should consist of a variety of people whose individual needs and rights are protected by the Charter from a strict state. Right and freedom what happens to an individual?
Politicians tell us, “We are all together.” Except that we are not. In Manitoba, city officials could go to the gym, but the general public couldn’t. With a few exceptions, all politicians, police officers, college professors, teachers, social workers, and civil servants receive the same salary as they did 13 months ago. Throughout Canada, citizens were told not to travel, but politicians found them returning from vacations and trips abroad. In Brampton, Ontario, the mayor outlawed team sports apart from practice while visiting a link he rented personally to play ice hockey with his peers.
Canadians have been asked to make extreme sacrifices for the past 13 months to help and protect our fellow citizens, but are these difficulties really making a real profit? ?? Sadly, apart from claims and speculation, politicians do not provide clear and compelling evidence that blocking all of society and the economy prevented the deaths of the sick and the elderly in nursing homes. Hmm. Although no benefits have been proven, the harms of lockdown include bankruptcy, poor mental health, postponement of important health treatments, cancellation of surgery, increased depression, soaring unemployment, mass poverty, and loved ones. For example, taking away the family of precious time.
Encouragingly, more and more Canadians are worried that with each increase in state control measures, the freedom they previously enjoyed and the return to freedom will be unlikely or even impossible. .. Many of us may need to reach this realization — and soon.
