Omicron exposes the fact that fearful government Covid responses are disproportionate and unecessary

This is an insight from Ontario indepedent politcian Roman Baber, who actually is serving the people (unlike most politicians these days):

The Omicron variant may be a blessing in disguise since it is a microcosm of the last 20 months. Covid is a serious infection and can be very dangerous to some folks, but we’ve learned so much and we should not behave as if it is March or April 2020.

South African doctors, including a member of South Africa’s medical association who identified and now treats Omicron, are doing media rounds to convince journalists that there is no evidence that Omicron is more dangerous than Alpha. South Africa is not experiencing an increase in deaths or hospitalizations and almost all patients to date are experiencing mild symptoms.

But the reaction and fearmongering by governments is completely disproportionate. The fear feeds the narrative, the narrative feeds public opinion and public opinion shapes government policy. In turn, government policy is disproportionate and causes harm, leading government to justify its own actions by feeding more fear and the cycle repeats itself.

We are seeing more evidence that “lockdown is deadlier than covid”. This week the Toronto Star wrote about a report commissioned by the Canadian Medical Association which found that thousands of Canadians died from delayed surgeries.

That number will grow as Ontario’s backlog of surgeries is over 250,000. Add approximately a million cancer screenings missed, an almost doubling in the amount of deaths from overdose and most Ontarians are beginning to realize the magnitude of the catastrophe caused by the Ford Government [of Ontario] in the last two years.

We are now focused on at least two major issues. First is the defence of Ontarians who made a different medical choice than most Ontarians. The travel ban and loss of employment shall be regarded as one of the greatest acts of intolerance and discrimination in Canadian history.

I invite you to review my social media for the last month for evidence in support of the proposition that those that vaccinated transmit just as easily as those who are not and that the vaccine wanes after 6 to 8 months. The vaccinated and the unvaccinated alike, must stand up for all Canadians.

The second frontier is the health and capacity of our healthcare system. During Thursday’s question period, I asked the Minister of Health, Christine Elliott, for the number of NET NEW nurses employed by Ontario’s hospitals since the beginning of the pandemic. She did not have the courage to answer.

Hospital capacity is quickly eroding but Doug Ford is silent as the Science Table recommends new restrictions due to shortage of staffing. We must end Doug Ford’s mismanagement of Ontario’s healthcare system.

My indictment of the Ford Government’s pandemic response during the debate on the Emergency Orders – “What Happened and Why” has now been viewed on Facebook more than 235,000 times. I highly recommend that you watch it on Facebook or catch it on YouTube.

I will continue to serve my constituents, shed light on Ontario’s catastrophic pandemic response and stand up for all Ontarians without a voice. Let’s continue to grow the number of Ontarians that seek a fair narrative, a functioning healthcare system, the freedom to work and a return to normal.

"Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed immaturity ... the inability to use one's own understanding without another's guidance. This immaturity is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one's own mind without another's guidance. Dare to know! (Sapere aude.) "Have the courage to use your own understanding," is therefore the motto of the [European] Enlightenment. "Laziness and cowardice are the reasons why such a large part of mankind gladly remain minors all their lives, long after nature has freed them from external guidance. They are the reasons why it is so easy for others to set themselves up as guardians. It is so comfortable to be a minor. If I have a book that thinks for me, a pastor who acts as my conscience, a physician who prescribes my diet [or vaccine], and so on--then I have no need to exert myself. I have no need to think, if only I can pay; others will take care of that disagreeable business for me. Those guardians who have kindly taken supervision upon themselves see to it that the overwhelming majority of mankind ... should consider the step to maturity, not only as hard, but as extremely dangerous. First, these guardians make their domestic cattle stupid and carefully prevent the docile creatures from taking a single step without the leading-strings to which they have fastened them. Then they show them the danger that would threaten them if they should try to walk by themselves. Now this danger is really not very great; after stumbling a few times they would, at last, learn to walk. However, examples of such failures intimidate and generally discourage all further attempts. "Thus it is very difficult for the individual to work himself out of the immaturity which has become almost second nature to him. He has even grown to like it, and is at first really incapable of using his own understanding because he has never been permitted to try it. Dogmas and formulas [e.g., Leftist ideology, identity politics] these mechanical tools designed for reasonable use--or rather abuse--of his natural gifts, are the fetters of an everlasting immaturity. The man who casts them off would make an uncertain leap over the narrowest ditch, because he is not used to such free movement. That is why there are only a few men who walk firmly, and who have emerged from immaturity by cultivating their own minds." - Kant, "An Answer to the Question: What is Enlightenment"
