In just 6 weeks, the Covid Pass has transformed my country into a regime of control and segregation.
This is the new society created in Lithuania, the nation furthest along the path to the authoritarianism inevitably facing all countries which impose a Covid Pass regime:
The Covid Pass in Lithuania is called the “Opportunity Pass”.
The Opportunity Pass allows you the opportunity to participate in society.
Without the Opportunity Pass, you don’t have opportunity: your rights are restricted.
My wife and I don’t have the Covid Pass.
We refuse to accept the authoritarianism and control of the new regime.
So we’ve lost our jobs and been banished from most of society.
It’s been 6 weeks so far. There is currently no end date planned for the new regime.
With no Pass, we may only enter small shops with street entrances which mainly sell essential goods: food, pharma, optics, or farm/pet goods.
This convenience store meets the requirements, so we may enter.
Every other store must, by law, ban people without the Pass.
In Lithuanian, the Pass is called “Galimybių pasas”, abbreviated as “GP”.
“GP” signs are now ubiquitous at stores and public buildings to signal compliance with the policy of banishment.
All shopping centers ban people without the Covid Pass.
Machines have been installed to scan and verify the Pass of each person who enters.
No Pass, no entrance.
