We don't need no patriarchal education

Introducing THE DANIELLE METZ SHOW: First previewed to listeners of Just Right on October 26, we are pleased to announce the official launch of the Danielle Metz Show, now available on line through Just Right Media.

Danielle’s conversations with co-host Robert Vaughan offer listeners a quick and casual exchange of ideas about some single issue or concern of the day. And as always, it’s not right wing; it’s Just Right!

THE FEMINIZATION OF EDUCATION: As a mother of three, with one in high school and two in kindergarten, it should not be surprising that Danielle has kicked off her new series of commentaries with a discussion of education, and about what she sees happening with her kids in Ontario’s school system.

The feminization of our public schools has fostered a culture that vilifies masculinity, suggests Danielle, after observing what her own kids have been exposed to in Ontario’s education curriculum. The “feminized education environment” in Ontario today regards boys as dysfunctional girls who need to be cured of their undesirable masculine traits.

Is there systemic sexism in Ontario’s school boards? Has the feminization of public education contributed to some of society’s worst social ills?

Those are just a few of the questions tossed back and forth between Danielle and co-host Robert Vaughan in this unique exchange of issues and ideas that, as always, promises to be Just Right!

Daycare Generation

THE DAYCARE GENERATION: As a follow-up to their discussion about the feminization of education in elementary and secondary schools, Danielle and co-host Robert Vaughan turn their spotlight towards disturbing trends in education at the university and college levels. The behavioral problems being observed on campuses across North America appear to be symptomatic of a juvenility reminiscent of daycare centers.

In fact, could that be where the problem began? In daycare? It’s another one of those haunting questions considered by Danielle and co-host Robert Vaughan, who always point their conversation in a direction that’s Just Right!

Capitalism

Disturbing poll results (conducted by YouGov) released by Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation have revealed that, as a group, more millennials prefer to live in a socialist country rather than in a capitalist one.

The declining rate of support for capitalism becomes glaringly visible along age demographics (matures: 78%; baby boomers: 66%; gen xers: 57%; millennials: 42%).

The surprising exception to the trend was found among the youngest demographic, “generation Z” whose preference to live in a capitalist society polled at 67%. While that bodes well in terms of changing future attitudes, the simple desire to live under capitalism will not make it so. The world is replete with citizens who desperately wish to live under conditions of freedom, yet that reality eludes them.

Blinded to what philosopher-novelist Ayn Rand boldly proclaimed as “the unknown ideal,” the failure to comprehend the true nature of Capitalism – as a moral system – has been the primary cause of capitalism’s decline in public acceptance. Continue reading »

Prostitute

When people of “like minds” find themselves opposed to each other on certain specific issues, there is usually a fundamental principle or concept either missing from the debate or being misrepresented / misunderstood.

Recently, two seemingly unrelated issues have offered evidence of this epistemological dilemma: (1) prostitution, and (2) immigration.

On the prostitution front, the recent murder of sex worker Josie Glenn in London, Ontario, has renewed the local debate about prostitution and the sex trade. On one side of the debate are anti-sex feminists, as represented by Megan Walker of the London Abused Women’s Center. On the other side are pro-sex feminists as well as the women who work as sex workers (as represented by Safe Space).

Is prostitution best defined simply as “sex for money” or as something that is “intrinsically violent”? Are these views of prostitution contradictory or are they simply differing perspectives on the same activity? It’s an unusual divide: feminist against feminist; women against women.

Hugh Hefner

With the passing of Playboy founder and icon Hugh Hefner on September 27 at age 91, subsequent discussions about his legacy and the influence that Playboy continues to have today have been disappointingly reduced to a feminist debate about whether Hefner was a “liberator” or an “oppressor”.

In stark contrast to the myopic discussions of sex usually heard in such a restricted context, our in-studio guest Salim Mansur brings a breath of fresh air to yet another discussion considered politically incorrect: the celebration of sex between men and women.

Says Salim:

“Just as Freud pointed out, ultimately everything boils down to sex. The whole of life throughout history is ultimately about the primordial basic relationship between a male and a female. Out of that relationship comes great art, great music, great painting – and out of it also comes the dirtiest violence, misogyny, abuse, excesses. That’s life.” Continue reading »

Chief Smart

DIVISIVE CRISIS – WHEN UNITED WE FALL: Since the introduction of official multiculturalism, the preoccupation of politicians with race, ethnicity, culture, religion, and other group identities has now reached the level of obsession and absurdity, one that has exposed a clearly sinister objective: restricting freedom of speech.

In practice, multiculturalism is demonstrating itself to be little more than racism enforced as cultural “diversity” – offering an illusory pretense of racial harmony and “unity” that demands censorship in order to disguise the truth – that multiculturalism is the problem creating divisions and conflicts, not the solution.

Consequently, restricting free speech has become a necessity for the Left. As those who discuss these issues openly and honestly are experiencing, even Google has become obsessed with restricting discussions about cultural issues, particularly if those discussions concern Islam. Given that issues related to Islam constantly appear on the front pages of our newspapers and are the top stories in other media, it’s a discussion that simply cannot be avoided or evaded. Yet that’s exactly what’s being attempted.

Canada’s province of Quebec has surprisingly done the Right thing when it passed Bill 62, described by columnist Barbara Kay as a “religious neutrality law which will ban face covers in the giving and getting of public services.” Continue reading »
