In mid-July, Ontario Premier Doug Ford suggested that Ontario would not be implementing a so-called ‘vaccine passport’ despite his government’s having previously suggested otherwise. But at the same time, private businesses and retailers in Ontario have been implementing their own versions of this divisive concept, some insisting that only those vaccinated may enter their premises, while others insist that those vaccinated may not enter their premises.

Either way, these establishments are guilty of discrimination and should be held accountable for these discriminatory practices. So says our guest Paul McKeever in a position paper developed for the Freedom Party of Ontario.

“Outlaw vaccination discrimination now!” suggests Paul, applying arguments and principles rarely heard (or understood) in the discussion of this very serious controversy. Up till now, the issue has been polarized and argued in an intellectual, moral, and philosophical vacuum, with each side blind to the strict context within which such a discussion is valid – the context of free trade.

714 – Trump versus the culture of tyranny

Both Canada and the United States recently celebrated their respective ‘birthdays’ as nations: July 1 (Canada Day / Dominion Day) and July 4 (Independence Day). Each nation shares a common British heritage, one that allowed the emergence of freedom and individual rights creating what we broadly refer to as Western culture.

Sadly, each nation also shares a common enemy: those who promote an evil ‘cancel culture’ ideology based on revisionist histories of pure fiction. Evil to the core, ‘cancel culture’ promotes racism at every opportunity, opposes capitalism, freedom, individualism, and is in essence a death cult. It is the political face of the Left.

As with everything on the Left, ‘cancel culture’ represents an absence, a vacuum, a ‘nothingness’ based on nihilism. Thus it bears reminding that cultures are never ‘cancelled,’ but replaced. No nation or people can exist in a cultural vacuum because culture is the ‘glue’ that binds individuals to a given collective, for better or worse.

So the question begs asking: what specific culture is the one ‘replacing’ our culture of freedom? The evidence glaringly suggests that it is the Communist culture of China – a culture of tyranny. Continue reading »

It is often said that we never seem to ‘learn from history.’ Perhaps in today’s context it can be further argued that it is impossible to learn from history given that history is being re-written to reflect a past that just wasn’t so.

This false depiction of history has been described as part of the so-called ‘cancel culture’ movement, a movement that has adopted all of the evils of the collectivist regimes defeated in World War II. Indeed, the history of the Western nations since the defeat of Hitler and the Nazi regime in 1945 reflects a philosophical shift towards the very collectivism that was fought against.

In the Western world today, our governments are openly adopting Marxist ideology under the guise of ‘equity,’ ‘racism,’ ‘white supremacy,’ ‘climate change,’ and even of fighting a viral pandemic. What all these seemingly unrelated issues have in common is that they are manufactured crisis designed to expand the power of the state at the expense of individual freedom.

How did we get here? That’s the question our guest Salim Mansur addresses as he describes Marx’s binary notion of the oppressor and the oppressed, a false notion that continues to be accepted as grounds for the destruction of individual freedom.

The parable of the grasshopper and the squirrel illustrates this lesson from history, suggests Salim. Continue reading »

Talk about an adverse reaction! If there’s one clear message Canadians should take away from the arrest of Maxime Bernier last week in Manitoba, it is that the entire COVID lockdown is all about political ideology – and nothing else.

As the leader of an officially-registered federal political party in Canada – the People’s Party – Bernier’s status rivals that of the many elected politicians who routinely and openly defy lockdown mandates while demanding that others obey them. Yet these politicians are never forced to face the consequences of their actions, and the hypocrisy of their forcing citizens to obey restrictions that they themselves do not obey has far passed the point of intolerable.

Though only kept behind bars for approximately eight hours, the fact that Bernier was specifically locked up for opposing lockdowns makes his case all the more arresting. Astoundingly, the corporate mainstream media has barely mentioned the arrest, if at all, while those who are aware of these events have been referring to them as among the ‘darkest’ days in Canada’s history.

Politically, Canada is a sick nation, having succumbed to the irrationality of the Left. Whether Liberal, Conservative, New Democrat, or Green, all parties support continued lockdowns, mask mandates, and above all, universal ‘vaccinations’ that have killed and injured more people than any other vaccine in the entire accumulated history of vaccines. All parties, that is, except the People’s Party of Canada.

Given the political nature of the lockdowns, we should not be surprised by the fact that those consistently fined, charged, or arrested for violating ‘health orders’ have exclusively been those who are Just Right.

In attempting to end our current authoritarian regime and to re-assert individual rights, it might be useful to discover how individuals ever triumphed over authoritarianism in the first place. It is a journey that can take us back to biblical days.

Individualism arose from the collective, not the other way round, asserts our guest Salim Mansur. It arose when individuals began to question authority, a theme illustrated by the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Having eaten fruit from the ‘tree of knowledge,’ that knowledge itself produced the phenomenon and recognition of free will and individual choice.

It is a mistake to speak of individualism as if it stands in complete isolation from any collective (not to be confused with collectivism). Paradoxically the terms ‘individualism’ and ‘individual rights’ have absolutely no meaning or context without some identifiable collective against which they can be contrasted – and which enshrines those values as being fundamental to that collective.

Today, many nations, provinces, and other jurisdictions no longer protect or defend the very individual rights that once justified their democratic and legal authority. Instead, their politicians and governments routinely violate these rights. They have apparently discovered that throughout history, fear has been the successful pretext for abridging individual freedom, and it is no different today. Continue reading »

705 – Winning back our freedom—and why philosophy matters

As more and more people ‘awaken’ to the tyrannical reality of the global lockdowns, a great dilemma presents itself.

No matter how many grasp the true nature of our tyranny, or publicly protest, or civilly disobey our tyrannical laws and politicians, or challenge the courts, the sad fact is that all of Canada’s political parties in the parliaments and legislatures of the country are the source of the tyranny. Without a political option that will guarantee individual freedom on principle, our tyranny will never end.

To Canadians who want an end to lockdowns and other tyrannical rules and regulations, there are currently only two political parties in the nation opposed to them on principle.

Federally, the choice is the People’s Party of Canada, under the leadership of Maxime Bernier. And provincially in the province of Ontario, it is the Freedom Party of Ontario under the leadership of Paul McKeever.

While there are a few independents and occasional members in various parliaments who have expressed opposition to the lockdowns, their opposition has not been based on the necessary philosophical principles. Instead their concern has been over issues of ‘democratic process’ or calls for more ‘accurate’ statistics and ‘scientific’ evidence, none of which could ever justify today’s tyranny.

Given these circumstances, things may seem hopeless for those yearning to win back their freedom democratically – at the ballot box. Worse, many believe that their vote would be ‘wasted’ if they voted for a party that has no elected members and whose past vote totals have been in the single digit percentage range. Without a ‘majority’ how can such parties ever win an election?

Answer: it doesn’t take a ‘majority’ of eligible voters to elect a majority government. In fact, as illustrated by Freedom Party leader Paul McKeever in his analysis of the past ten Ontario elections, the elected parties consistently received between 18.2% to 29.7% of eligible voters, most resulting in majority governments.

Given that every other elected political party in Ontario has vowed to keep the lockdowns going indefinitely (even though they have no moral or democratic right to do so), a vote for any of them is a vote for continued tyranny.

Polls are now suggesting that as many as 20% of Ontarians want their freedom back, a percentage that becomes politically significant in light of the reality of past electoral results. Unfortunately this minority is still reluctant to vote for its convictions, blinded by political myths and unaware of how easily circumstances could be reversed.

As we have demonstrated many times in the past, the political world is and has always been ruled by minorities. ‘Majorities’ always follow, they never lead.

Tyranny will never end in our society until a significant minority philosophically commits to a real political option that is always Just Right – freedom.

704 – The Ford Reich—Ontario’s fascist variant

When University of Western Ontario professor Donald Welsh compared Ontario’s COVID strategies to the Holocaust, he was roundly condemned by the Ford government’s spokesperson Ivana Yelich: “These inflammatory comments are totally unacceptable. Nothing should ever be compared to the Holocaust.”

And with that, she proved the professor’s case. Indeed, it is a failure to compare today’s events in Ontario with those of the Holocaust (and other similar historical parallels) that should be considered both an intellectual and moral crime. To suggest that ‘nothing’ should ever be compared to the Holocaust is a call to ignore the lessons of history – and to promote totalitarianism and tyranny – two singular realities that have emerged from Doug Ford’s Progressive Conservative Party in Ontario.

Yelich’s statement is also an extraordinary insult to those who suffered under the evil fascist philosophies of the Holocaust – historical versions of the very philosophy and policy of today’s Ford’s government. But most importantly, it was a veiled attempt to prevent looking in the mirror, and to prevent the public from seeing the Ford government in its true philosophical light – fascist.

“For 14 months, we have all been part of a highly dangerous experiment. It was foisted upon us, without consent, by a radical group of public health fundamentalists. These extremists have terrorized civil society and attempted to shut down and destroy free thought,” tweeted Professor Welsh in a perfect and accurate description of a fascist state.

Bravo Professor Welsh! Those who have accused you of expressing ‘offensive’ statements are themselves the ones who are offensive.

We encourage everyone to follow the example of Professor Welsh because he got it Just Right and had the courage to say so.
