Concerned about Canada

stuff
This was written by a guy. Just a guy who is concerned about Canada….
 
We are seeing the most communist measures enforced at all levels of government that we’ve ever seen in our lifetimes, and yet rather than being alarmed by the things going on, so many of you applaud.
 
People are being arrested for spending too much time outside, and you applaud. Pastors are being arrested for daring to hold church services, and you applaud. A child’s birthday party is raided by police, and you applaud. A young woman is ticketed for going on a leisurely drive alone because it’s deemed “non-essential travel”, and you applaud. A parade of school teachers and administrators who wanted to drive through neighborhoods and wave at children is busted up by cops because they were “nonessential,” and you applaud. A lone paddleboarder in the ocean on a beach without any other people around is arrested because he’s violating quarantine orders, and you applaud.
 
People are being denied life saving medical treatments because they’re not a priority right now (not “essential” as deemed by the government) as the entirety of our medical system is focused on one thing, and you applaud.
 
Businesses are beings forcibly closed and padlocked and owners arrested for refusing to shut down, and you applaud. Dairy farmers (and soon, other farmers) are being incentivized to stop dairy farming and to sell their herds, and you don’t seem to understand the implications.
 
You’re being told to use hotlines and online forms provided by your local governments to report your neighbors who don’t obey, and you comply.
 
You scold people day after day for not obeying government edicts, and if any of us dare to question what’s happening, you lecture about how we’re a danger to society and and we just don’t care about people dying.
 
You’ve somehow managed to convince yourselves that the people whose lives are affected by a virus are MUCH more important than the people whose lives are being destroyed (and in many cases, leading to death) by the effects of a worldwide economic shutdown and impending worldwide depression the likes of which no one has ever seen before. At what point will you start QUESTIONING what’s going on?
 
How far does the government have to push before you’re jolted awake from your slumber? How far are you willing to go with this?
 
If they told you to load your families onto train cars so that you could be taken to Virus Protection Facilities for your own safety, would you do it?
 
YES. Yes, you would.That much has become painfully obvious. Yet the whole time, you’d be shaking your finger and yelling at those who refused, accusing them of being “a danger to society” and “not caring if people die.” But they don’t have to load you onto train cars and take you to Virus Protection Facilities, or force you to comply, because you do that voluntarily.
 
They control your mind. They control you through fear. They control you by convincing you that the world is a scary dangerous place, but they’re here to protect you, care for you, and keep you safe, just as long as you OBEY.
 
They know that as long as you’re locked inside your comfortable home with Netflix, Hulu, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and a cell phone, while dangling a $2000 check in front of you like a carrot on a stick, you’ll comply. No force is necessary for the majority of the herd.
 
The truth is YOU ARE IMPRISONED, willingly, and you’re too blind to see it.”
And why is this guy wearing a tracking bracelet whilst he ‘isolating’ when essential Canadian are at work?
