“I hate politicians” declared Canada’s most popular voice for “united non-compliance,” Chris Sky. “I don’t like the idea of having to become a politician just to reach the people and get them to realize they don’t need a politician to save them.”
And on that premise Chris Sky has recently been making enemies of many who support his message, but who choose to fight for freedom on a political platform. On Canada Day (July 1) at an Ottawa rally against the lockdowns, its organizers accused Sky of disrupting their event. Sky responded by calling the organizers “liars” and by insisting that he had been invited to speak.
The dispute was brought to the attention of American and international audiences when Sky appeared on the Stew Peters Show critical about how he had been treated in Ottawa. Sky’s narrative was then immediately countered by Mark Friesen, who debated the issue with Sky on a subsequent Stew Peters program.
Consequently, what at first appeared on the surface to be a ‘tempest in a teapot’ over mix-ups in scheduling, proved to be disturbing evidence of a much deeper brewing problem.
Even if true (and it isn’t) that “There is no political solution to this problem,” as Sky insists, his hostility towards those seeking a political solution is both bizarre and unwarranted. Sky has been openly confronted by the likes of Maxime Bernier, Randy Hillier, and others opposing the lockdowns – people who should be working together given the common objective.
As a matter of record, we are wholly supportive of Chris Sky’s efforts to educate others about all the fallacies underlying the lockdowns and to inspire others to stop complying with mandates.
But when it comes to his views on politics, Sky is spreading, not misinformation, but misconceptions about the nature of politics and its purposes. His admitted hatred of all politicians has blinded him to the potential of politics, causing him to express a myriad of contradictory and damaging ideas.
In the wake of a Canadian federal election to be held September 20, this is no time to be undermining the efforts of those campaigning for freedom as candidates and party supporters.
Yet Sky has openly criticized all of the PPC candidates and PPC leader Maxime Bernier, along with others fighting to end the lockdowns such as Randy Hillier. He may yet discover that by mixing his ‘non-compliance’ message with his pie-in-the-Sky political philosophy, he is also undermining his own credibility.
We would far prefer to see Sky and other freedom movements be supportive of each other but as they say, “It takes two to tango.”
Perhaps the most destructive misconception of all is the widely accepted belief that “government is a necessary evil,” when the truth is quite the opposite. Government is a necessary good and freedom cannot exist without it. When evil is perceived in government, it is not in the nature of government itself, but in the collectivist philosophies and policies of those sitting in the seats of government.
‘Good government’ is that which enshrines and protects individual rights. To perpetually assume that all government (and therefore politics) is ‘evil’ is to preclude any concept or possibility of electing a government that is ‘good.’ As Chris Sky himself correctly observed, voting for the lesser evil is still voting for evil.
Fortunately, evil is never ‘necessary’ – either in government or in politics. To understand politics in a way that’s Just Right is to understand that, like government, politics is not a necessary evil but a necessary good.
