There’s the thing; we’ve too many people who don’t understand that abuse is abuse, irrespective of where or who it’s coming from. Indeed, what is acceptable for the People to do to each other is often not acceptable for the government to do the People.
Currently, in the context of the various government responses to COVID-19, this easily steps over the line into abuse due to there not being equal protection under the law. Instead, many people are told to stay in Lock-Down while groups and activities favored by certain politicians are exempt from this.
While I’m not against all, or even most, of the initial responses to COVID-19, the blind, slavish, eagerness that a lot people showed towards following what were quite destructive and draconian quarantine measures is quite disturbing. Not surprising, but quite disturbing.
And the way you jumped on the social engineering point of this all being to protect others instead of ourselves and branded any dissenters as public enemies, was and is even more disturbing.
Honestly, it’s good and heartening to see that some people are showing and sharing a certain level of resilience to the pestilence that is the enforced quarantine and shut-down of society in the wake of COVID-19.
But hey! They’re Canadians and Canadians seems to be possessed of a certain aplomb and fortitude in the face of this sort of adversity.
2020 – A Dickensian Summation
it was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way.
