As Canada’s province of Ontario prepares for the June 2, 2022 election, many are attempting to ‘politically unite’ behind the single cause of ending the lockdowns and injection mandates. While opposing these measures is a noble objective, it is no path to political unity, power, or freedom.
As if to demonstrate this reality, already a ‘political split’ is occurring among ex-Progressive Conservative politicians and activists opposed to the state-imposed lockdowns and injection mandates. Ontario MPP Randy Hillier has announced his intention to form a provincial party to be called ‘Ontario First’ while Jim and Belinda Karahalios have registered their ‘New Blue Party of Ontario.’
But the real reason that solely opposing the lockdowns and mandates will not lead to electoral victory is not the fault of political parties or candidates, despite their differences and conflicts. The sad reality is that a majority of voters support the lockdowns and mandates – and are willing to sacrifice everyone’s freedom in the process.
For freedom-minded individualists, the reality that most of their fellow citizens do not value individual freedom is unthinkable. But the proof of this reality is the current state of tyranny brought about by the politicians and parties that were voted in by that majority.
