1…In the lead up to WWII, Hitler engaged in a campaign of “re-uniting the Germanic Peoples”, and Lebensraum (“living space”). Despite the rest of the world watching him (esp France, England, USA, Russia), he was able to hostiley annex (though without a single shot fired)…2
2…He was able to annex Austria, and approx 80% of Czechoslovakia’s industry and resources.

A) a slick PR campaign
B) “Divide and conquer” politics
C) unwavering ideology

He gained the power and righteous delusion to take the world to the brink of destruction
3… But this was not enough.

During the Nuremberg investigations & trials it was revealed that many of Hitler’s trusted military generals were staging a coup.

That coup was planned to occur before Hitler took over large sections of Czech lands.

But what prevented the coup?…4
4…During pivotal (Munich) meetings between Hitler & the PMs of France, England, Italy…in order to preserve themselves from inconvenience, England and France turned their backs on Czechoslovakia. In secret the German generals were pleading with England and France to not give…5
5…to not give in on Hitler’s demands for Czech land. If Hitler was forced to take Czech lands by force, then the generals could stage the coup based on averting unnecessary war. But, this remotely risked London and Paris being bombed…6
6…The PMs of England/France didn’t want that risk to their own status quo. So, Hitler was given the political success of annexing Czechoslovakia. The generals couldn’t muster the support against such a political win. Further, Hungary and Poland were even offered…7
7…sections of Czech lands as a reward to not aiding Czechoslovakia (they were eager).

When further interrogated, investigated, analyzed, it was determined that the General’s coup would have likely succeeded. WWII would have been averted. Hitler would have been unseated…8
8…So, the stage was being set for mass citizen harm through:
A) slick public relations
B) “Divide and Conquer” politics
C) unwavering ideology
D) the increasingly malignant ambitions of one man

But, it also required the compliance of the soon to be victims…9
9…It also required the compliance of the soon to be victims, influenced more by their fear of inconvenience than by their moral obligations…10
10…This was seen not only in the actions of the world leaders, but also in the actions of the citizenry. One needs only look to the famous poem of Martin Niemöller to see this also happening in German society.
11…In Alberta, we see the slick PR, the divide and conquer, the unwavering ideology, the increasing ambitions of one man.

But WE MUST set aside our fear of inconvenience, our disregard for others unlike ourselves, for if we don’t we will soon be targeted…12
12…Just like the sections of society sequentially targeted and destroyed (Martin Niemöller). Just like the nations divided and sequentially attacked (Munich).
13…Because no alliance between citizens, no alliance between nations was honoured before 1939, it took until 1945 to stop fascism. Countless lives/families destroyed that could have thrived, never knowing what might have been their fate…14
14…In the world, from afar, and at home, fascism is rising again. For now, it only means to take your livelihoods from you. But will it stop simply when you are reduced to servitude? And should it be allowed to even reach that far?…15
15…All walks of life, all sectors of society, need to band together and not be swayed by strong words meant to “make ‘that other’ person pay for your difficulties”. All people need to build your communities, and develop/honour new alliances…16
16…For the fascist mechanisms of PR/divide&conquer/ideology/cult of personality will not stop. They have tasted blood. They want more.

Only your honoured alliances can stop them

1…Discussed with an immunologist: new variants are appearing with mutations in the human tissue receptor portion of COVID, which is also the portion of the spike protein that the vaccine-induced antibodies (AKA your immune system)…2
2…while this does not increase the infectivity or virulence (disease severity) or the virus, it could lead to significant decrease in vaccine effectiveness…3
3…Further, there is absolutely nothing stopping this from recombining with (or spontaneously occurring in) variants already possessing greater infectivity and virulence…4

1...I think it is official...the "contract" offered the docs by @shandro is not actually a contract. Its an autograph book that Shandy wants to collect COVID-hero signatures in. It is so vague that this contract lawyer of a minister...2
2...has generated a document that can't be legally upheld as a contract by any self-respecting contract court.

@shandro can't even do his original job as a lawyer correctly
As it is not actually a legally binding contract...this makes this document nothing more than a vehicle by which this minister can continue his abusive attack upon doctors. This document is the written equivalent of gaslighting. My gosh...@Shandro you are classic. Never change

1...For those wanting a little context on how @jkenney failed us all because of corruption and TOTAL LACK OF VISION. In April 2020, when the world knew COVID was about to lay us all to ruin, and many were already singing the praises of vaccine development...2
2...@jkenney and the @UCPCaucus @YourAlberta government sunk what was left of our heritage fund into the CEO pockets of O&G companies waiting on the doorstep to leave. Canada had no vaccine production capacity, Alberta was leading the country in unemployment...3
3...and @jkenney wanted “shovels in the ground, now”! Any medical researcher and most doctors could have told you which companies would likely have the best shot at vaccine production (Pfizer, AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson&Johnson, Merck, Bauer) those would have been...4

1...Sometimes a little context is in order. Realize that while our Minister of COIs has presented the AMA with a contract “good for everyone”, here is a person who felt fine to trespass on a neighbour’s property, threaten them and their family because they were a doctor...2
2...with an opinion on his ulterior motives (owning a private health insurance company). He has harassed multiple doctors, he has demanded punishment from the college for any doc that has opposed him...3
3...and on the eve of this contract revelation, his own licensure as a lawyer is being reviewed by the law society’s conduct board. This is who is presenting us with a “win-win-win” contract. Now, who thinks that is likely sincere?...4

1...@shandro, @jkenney, @ucpcaucus have engaged the AMA for further contract talks. We doctors are finding ourselves soon to be voting on a contract we don’t even yet know the details of. Meanwhile, the govt (and the AMA) have asked us to not discuss the details...2
2...with the public (once we know them), as a show of good faith. However, in the last 3-4 days we have seen numerous “UCP-allies” publish articles taking shots at docs, we have heard the Minister proclaim Bill 21 isn’t a threat to contracts, and UCP MLAs email their...3
3... constituents to engage them about our contract negotiations. Further, has the UCP taken town their prior doc-smearing websites, as promised? These are all blatant signs of poor faith, and continue to erode trust. I speak with many of my colleagues and what I can tell...4

1...As a doctor I am morally very concerned that the @UCPCaucus intention to open up Alberta (just as the hyper-infectious variants descend upon the province) is going to push our system deeply back into overburdened, slowing down services and costing people time and life...2 seeking care for their mortal illnesses, resources that will be exhausted caring for people who could have avoided getting COVID.


3...having a family member be diagnosed with a deadly condition today that will require surgery for cure...I will be veganly enraged if this person’s care is delayed by an upswing in COVID cases and it results in anything but the best outcomes for them.
