If the government doesn’t like your speech, or your business, you may face financial tyranny.

Truckers protesting Canada’s COVID vaccine rules had their bank accounts frozen.

“You do have to have a bank account, really, to be able to live,” says law professor Todd Zywicki.

Freezing accounts ended the protests quickly. “It’s a very big threat to a free society,” says Zywicki. “We need to tolerate people saying things we don’t like.”

But politicians often don’t. If they can silence protest by grabbing your money, they will.
