I recently penned a Freedom Party of Ontario position paper that called for government to ban store owners and others from denying service to people who have not been “vaccinated” against Covid-19 (or against those who have). Three proponents of individual freedom wrote e-mails in response. Each rejected both my conclusion and my rationale. Their counter-arguments, in each case, were to the effect that a ban would violate an individual’s rights and improperly increase the scope of government power. I will here assert that, to the contrary, those writers hold a view of “rights” and government that improperly perverts the purpose of “rights” and of government, and that facilitates the use of law to defeat capitalism and promote fascism.

On July 27, 2021, I published on the Freedom Party of Ontario’s website a position paper concerning decisions by some providers of goods or service to deny service to those who have not received a Covid injection, or to those who have had one (see https://freedomparty.on.ca/archive/2021/07/27/for-freedom-outlaw-covid-19-vaccination-discrimination-now/). For reasons there explained, I asserted that governments must ban the practice. In what follows, I deal with one of the more common and faulty or disgusting responses I received to that article.

SUMMARY: Some restaurateurs, gyms and others have begun posting signs saying that they will deny service to those who have had a Covid-19 injection, or saying that they will deny service to those who have not had a Covid-19 injection. Such discrimination pigeon-holes every individual, segregates society into two collectives, de-individualizes and dehumanizes everyone, and undermines the consent-based human mode of social interaction. Free market forces cannot and will not restore a society in which every adult is dealt with as a unique, thinking, choosing, individual. A serious consideration of philosophy and the nature of human beings makes it clear that government must intervene to stop businesses and others from denying service to – or otherwise discriminating against – individuals based upon whether or not they have had a Covid-19 injection. The time for the Ford government of Ontario – and for all other governments – to ban such discriminatory practices is now.

If lock-downs, mask mandates, talk of vaccine passports, and the daily efforts of the Establishment parties and media to cancel, fine, or imprison those who speak out against such abuse of power has you feeling down, dispirited, or hopeless, this message is for you. If you think that the next election will not change anything because the Progressive Conservatives, Liberals, NDP, and Greens are all in favour of these oppressive Coronavirus policies, this message is definitely for you, and for anyone who feels similarly doubtful about the next election changing anything for the better.

This is not an empty, pro-freedom “rah-rah we can do it” rant. We’ve all read those and found them to give no real reasons to think the next election will be any different from the past. No, what I here offer you is: mathematics; mathematics that will crush the arguments of those who attempt to tell you that you are throwing your vote away unless you vote Progressive Conservative, Liberal, or NDP; mathematics that will show you how easy it is actually to beat the Progressive Conservatives, Liberals, and NDP.

AUDIO – DESCRIPTION:

On January 21, 2021, Freedom Party president Robert Metz hosted an episode of the radio show “Just Right” that focused on Ontario’ Progressive Conservative government and its Premier, Doug Ford. Just Right described the episode as follows:

It is utterly hypocritical for Ontario Premier Doug Ford to suggest that “There is no room for political ideology in our fight against COVID-19″ when his entire approach to the fraud has been ideological from the beginning.
