Episode 22: Principled Pushback

Released Wednesday, 22nd July 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode we document how, during the Covid-19 pandemic, governments have progressively taken away the civil liberties of their citizens. After giving examples of 'the selective rescue technique' and the implementation of the 'shock doctrine', we discuss how governments and law enforcement have systematically sought to close churches, even preventing so-called drive-in services that respected physical distancing rules. We explore how (shockingly) in Canada the citizens do not have the basic human rights that they believe they have. The main thesis in this episode is that rather than passively submitting to governmental overreach, Christians and liberty-loving people in so-called 'democratic societies' must push back against government overreach to recover and retain their pre-pandemic civil liberties. This principled pushback is an important way in which Christians can show love for their neighbours.
