Recent COVID-19 restrictions imposed by Ontario Premier Doug Ford (Progressive Conservative) are alarmingly fascist, a collectivist ideology of the Left. This is no aberration that one can blame on the nature of the proclaimed crisis. Like wolves in sheep’s clothing, Conservative political parties have been dragging their ‘right-wing’ supporters ever leftward for the better part of a century.

In practice, what this means is that the destructive COVID lockdowns and the unhealthy forced wearing of masks will continue to be with us as long as any party of the Left is in power. Since that includes all of the parties sitting in parliament or the provincial legislatures, that means this fascism is our ‘new normal’ for the foreseeable future.

To help prevent any viable electoral representation from rising on the Right, the Left has been popularizing the false association of fascism with the Right, thus positioning fascism as the political alternative to communism/socialism which are already accepted as being on the Left. With fascism falsely occupying the Right (where freedom belongs), that leaves freedom without any polarity, and hence, no position on the political map.

Like all forms of collectivism, fascism is diametrically opposed to individualism, freedom, and capitalism. Conservatives who truly share these values must break their habit of voting for Leftist or ‘progressive’ political parties solely on the grounds that the word ‘conservative’ appears in the name of a party. After all, the word ‘conservative’ itself lacks any consistent definition, and many calling themselves conservative do not see freedom as the standard or ideal of government. Like Ontario’s Doug Ford.

Were any Canadian ‘conservative’ party to ever represent the values of freedom, it would have to do a complete about-face and perhaps for the first time ever take a single step in the direction that is Just Right.

In the absence of any rational justification for them, what the continual lockdown threats and irrational rules surrounding COVID-19 clearly demonstrate is that we currently live under fascist rule. It’s no “creeping” fascism. It’s here. Now.

Like all forms of collectivism, fascism is an ideology of the Left. Generally, those on the Left support continuing the lockdowns and COVID rules while those on the Right favor freedom and individual choice. These Left versus Right competing narratives are clearly distinguishable on the basis of philosophy and ideology.

Labels continually prove to be unavoidable in political discourse because they are both a necessity and a weapon.

When correctly defined instead of being avoided, political labels can become a powerful weapon for the Right and against fascism given fascism’s exclusive association with the Left. Continue reading »

653 – Pandemic parallels: The COVID-19 climate changer

According to a report by NewsWars (May 6, 2020) “U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres called for global leaders to ‘use the pandemic recovery’ to roll out their global climate change agenda, including allowing fossil fuel companies to collapse and using taxpayer stimulus money to fund green jobs.”

It was inevitable. COVID-19 meets climate change, two issues that have more in common than most expect. Right now, many ‘Green’ activists are in support of the politicians and health care officials who wish to extend the shut down indefinitely and thereafter maintain current state controls and regulations on all aspects of daily living.

With last week’s release of the environmental documentary Planet of the Humans, an interesting philosophical dilemma has surfaced. Produced by Left-wing environmentalists Michael Moore, Jeff Gibbs, and Ozzie Zehner, it should not be surprising that the movie is utterly anti-life and anti-capitalist. But shockingly to those both on the Left and the Right, the documentary presents a brutal and honest account of the environmental destruction wrought by ‘green’ alternate energy initiatives, particularly wind, solar, and biomass.

Given the abject environmental failure of the very initiatives once endorsed by the movie’s producers, they have now changed their tactics, identifying more with the destructive results of the state-imposed COVID-19 shutdown. Continue reading »

648 – Lies, damn lies, and statistics — about COVID-19

Now that the first ‘two crucial weeks’ of a state-imposed lockdown have passed, we have entered a second ‘two crucial weeks’ period – with promises of more ‘two week crucial periods’ ahead of us – as everyone waits to see if the anticipated statistical predictions regarding COVID-19 actually come to pass.

First, we were faced with a coronavirus health pandemic. Then, world governments created a second crisis by shutting down their economies and precipitating an unemployment pandemic and a financial pandemic. Now, it appears that we have a serious COVID-19 ‘statistics crisis,’ which may, in the end, be the one most responsible for precipitating all the fear and panic concerning the first two.

An increasing number of analysts are calling into question the validity of COVID-19 projections based on extrapolations of very dubious data samplings. There is also evidence surfacing that the statistics are being manipulated to present a false picture of the situation.

For example, there is a huge difference between measuring ‘cases’ of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and measuring the number of people suffering from the COVID-19 disease. Yet our governments have intentionally decided to treat each of these very distinct concepts as being identical.

It is becoming increasingly recognized that the statistics cited in our daily COVID19 updates may not be statistically valid. and do not represent valid comparisons or projections. Continue reading »

645 – How dare they! – The carbonated propaganda of fighting climate change

Fighting ‘climate change’ is perhaps the single most significant political issue of our time. Whether one is a ‘believer’ or a ‘denier’ – or completely oblivious to the whole matter – it’s an issue that affects everyone because it is being politically forced on each of us. Of course, the political narrative is fundamentally not really about climate at all. But that’s not what the mainstream media and politicians would have us believe.

For example, in his January 22 syndicated newspaper commentary, columnist Gwynne Dyer predicted “that those who led or financed the denial campaign will almost certainly end up facing criminal charges 10 or 20 years from now.” Citing “how a great many companies conspired to cast doubt on the scientific evidence for global warming over a period of several decades,” he called for those opposed to the politically correct narrative on climate change to be punished: “not talking about just fines… but also talking about criminal liability.”

Dyer’s attitude is typical of climate change alarmists everywhere. Rather than welcome an open and informed dialogue on climate, they would punish those who do not participate in the politically correct narrative.

“How dare you!” angrily threatened climate icon Greta Thunberg at the United Nations last September, in her call to have world governments take political action to reduce carbon dioxide emissions globally. Driven by a propaganda campaign based on the utterly false premise that CO2 is a pollutant, the reality is that CO2 is the ‘gas of life.’ Continue reading »

641 – Freedom Forward – Philosophy’s indispensable role in determining the Right Direction

There is a widespread belief – particularly among advocates of freedom and capitalism – that individual freedom and individual rights will spontaneously emerge if nations gradually adopt various forms of capitalism, freer markets, and/or more private economic initiatives. Yet, many socialist, fascist and communist jurisdictions have done exactly this, but nevertheless remained socialist, fascist or communist. While their economies may have become more ‘efficient,’ their people still do not enjoy individual rights, having ironically been turned into ‘slaves’ of a state-directed economic ‘efficiency.’

Additionally, there is a certain ‘literalism’ on the philosophic front, with many freedom advocates rejecting the best political alternative on the basis of some kind of philosophical impurity or inconsistency on the part of a given politician or party.

This is dangerous thinking, and can lead to unwarranted feelings of futility, frustration, and cynicism regarding political action in general. It is an affliction that most affects those on the Right, and is in part responsible for the continuing ascendancy of the Left and the erosion of our freedoms. Continue reading »

640 – Uncommon Laws – Britain exits the European Union

Take ten freedom-loving people, put them in a room in front of some microphones, and what do you get? Our first ever ‘Freedom Panel,’ sharing views on Brexit, climate change, and a mutual frustration with the lack of rational philosophies in politics.

At long last, Brexit has become a reality. But that development reflects a long-established British history and philosophy that has always been incompatible with that of the European nations. For that reason, many have regarded Brexit as inevitable. Founded on individualism rather than on the European collectivism that has brought the continent to disaster on repeated occasions, Britain can now once again forge its own political destiny, freed from the control of Brussels.

With the good news on the Brexit front, it’s too bad that politicians continue to ring the bells of climate alarmism, pretending to talk about the weather when what they’re trying to prevent changing is the climate of collectivism.

Ironically, it is the growing politics of populism that is beginning to demonstrate an effective defense against collectivism’s ills. Even so, many individualists and supporters of political freedom remain opposed to a populism that they see as being unprincipled. But is populism really an obstacle to freedom, or is it an opportunity for rational principles to once again become part of the political playing field?

Though our panelists have many differing perspectives on this question and other issues, one thing you can always count on is a discussion that will be Just Right.
