As Quebec Returns To Lockdowns, The Goalposts Are Completely Out Of Sight

“15 days to slow the spread!”

For quite some time, those of us who oppose the ongoing authoritarianism and gaslighting perpetrated by our governments have been noting that there will never be a ‘return to normal’, so long as the politicians continue to expand their power.

Every demand they make of the public will ‘come up just short,’ and ‘changing circumstances’ will lead to yet another demand.

After all, this started with “15 days to slow the spread.”

Then, we were told that once people acquired immunity, either with one dose of the vaccine or naturally, that things should get back to normal.

At that time, things like vaccine mandates and vaccine passports were called conspiracy theories, and some who warned those measures were coming were banned from social media for spreading ‘disinformation.’

Then, we were told we would need two vaccines to go back to normal, but that mandates and vaccine passports weren’t necessary.

Then, we were told that mandates and vaccine passports were necessary until about 80% of adults got two doses.

Then, 80% wasn’t enough.

Then, 90% wasn’t enough.

Then, 100% of vaccinated adults weren’t enough, and children would need vaccines as well.

Now, we are being told that boosters are necessary, and we can expect the definition of ‘fully vaccinated’ to change to three shots, and likely four at some point. That also means that current vaccine passports will be invalid, which will come as a big surprise to many Canadians who thought they had ‘done what the government told them’ in order to ‘get back their freedom.’

Amid all of this, many Canadians at least felt that strict lockdowns were off the table.

Surely, after everyone listened to the politicians we would at least be spared a return to the initial measures from the beginning of the crisis, right?

Well, it turns out that isn’t the case.

Quebec returns to lockdowns

We’ve talked a lot about how the ‘goalposts have shifted’ over and over again.

In Quebec, the goalposts are now completely gone, as the province returns to lockdowns:

“The Quebec government shut down several public settings Monday evening, including bars, taverns, casinos, theatres, gyms and even schools, as cases of COVID-19 soar in a pre-holiday spike.

All those establishments were closed as of 5 p.m. Monday.

“The situation is critical,” Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé said at a press conference at 1 p.m., just four hours earlier.”

As the most statist and authoritarian province, Quebec is often the ‘leader’ in terms of imposing state control, which then creates the political pretext for other provinces to quickly follow.

Quebec is also leaving the door open to stricter measures, including further restrictions on private gatherings (something the government should never have the power to authorize):

“”If we have to add new measures, we’ll do it over the coming days,” Dubé said, adding that his team is meeting Monday night to go over the latest projections and that “we will not be scared of going back on certain decisions given the new information.”

“We are waging war against this variant,” he said. “We’re going to do everything we can to work together.””

That represents a return to the measures that were imposed at the start of the pandemic.

All the vaccinations.

All the mandates.

All the restrictions.

All the economic damage.

All the division.

All the demonization.

All of that, only to return to the same restrictions that were in place when the pandemic started.

This demonstrates a few things:

First, the politicians cannot be trusted.

Second, the government is incompetent.

Third, imposing restrictions, mandates, and vaccine passports has failed to stop the virus. All those things have achieved is to take rights away and divide the populace.

And fourth, we must get rid of those measures, remove state control, and let people make their own decisions.

Canadians need to realize that much of what we’ve been told by the ‘experts’ and politicians have been lies or mistruths that are designed to alter behaviour, rather than inform:

“Remember being yelled at for saying this? Yeah, me too.

Noble lies, man.”

To get another sense of how foolish the vaccine mandate policies are, consider that even the WHO now has to admit that Omicron is spreading among vaccinated people:

“”There is now consistent evidence that Omicron is spreading significantly faster than the Delta variant,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told the briefing.

“And it is more likely people vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19 could be infected or re-infected,” Tedros said.”

Again, this isn’t about being pro or anti-vaccine. Personally, I think those who feel getting vaccinated is appropriate should feel free to do so. The issue is the government forcing/pressuring people into getting vaccinated by taking away their rights, and acting as if getting vaccinated would ensure a ‘return to normal’ when they obviously intend to continue moving the goalposts out of view.

“Get the jab, get the lockdown. Get the next jab, get the next lockdown. Blame anyone the government allows you to but never the government itself.

The new normal.”

The government has no power if nobody listens to them

We are stuck in a feedback loop.

Politicians push fear.

The public submits to that fear and seeks the comfort of authority.

Politicians expand their authority, and use that new authority to spread more fear.

This sometimes masks the fact that our politicians aren’t ‘leaders’ in any sense of the word.

They have no ability to innovate, and no ability to adapt (as demonstrated by the healthcare system that is even weaker despite all the money they’ve spent).

If the public stops listening to the hypocritical politicians and choose to live life without following the dictates of the centralized state, then politicians will give in.

Indeed, there are likely at least a few dozen MPs in the Conservative Party who would love to speak out strongly against government measures, but are being suppressed by Erin O’Toole.

It would be nice to see some courage from politicians, but at this point the best we can expect is some self-interested moves in the direction of opposing the rise of authoritarianism in Canada.

If the public demands it, many politicians will ‘rediscover’ their belief in individual rights and freedoms.

So, Canadians need to start doing what we feel is right for ourselves and our loved ones, rather than listen to the worthless ranting of the failed statists who have been abusing their power.
