There have been times throughout history where a particular moment calls for a certain type of person to lead. World War II had its Churchill. The American Civil War had its LIncoln. The Falklands War had Margaret Thatcher. Today with a lethal pandemic not seen since the 1918 Spanish Flu the world has Donald J. Trump.

No other leader but President Trump has acted so quickly in response to this crisis, restricting travel, reducing regulation, putting together a relief package, and finally recognizing that, in the end, the economy must not be destroyed in the process and a balance must be found.

Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus at Western University, puts President Trump amongst the greatest leaders in history as we watch this disease spread, destroying lives and economies as it goes.

“Globalism is the instrument by which the progressive alliance is out to strip away the unalienable rights of free people and their sovereign states,” says Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus at Western University.

In this in-depth discussion with Just Right Media’s Robert Vaughan, Professor Mansur delves deep into the history of the globalist agenda. From its philosophic roots dating back to Karl Marx and Immanuel Kant to the formation of the United Nations to the many pretexts for control and power, he covers the many facets of globalism to put this complex and sinister movement into perspective.

643 – Canada’s crisis: from alienation to alien nations?

 Comments Off on 643 – Canada’s crisis: from alienation to alien nations?
Feb 272020
 


Canada is in crisis. In many ways, that crisis is similar to that faced by the European Union and its recent loss of Britain as a constituent member of that union.

In this, the second part of our conversation with Dr Salim Mansur, professor emeritus of political science at Western University, we discover that the fluid dynamics of the nation-state can easily lead to alienation ‘within’ nations. When interests and common values once shared instead become a source of conflict and cause for national divisions, the resulting alienation may lead to the literal formation of alien nations.

Given the rise and fall of the nation-state throughout history, it is clear that nations are far more fragile than most people generally perceive. The temporary duration of the various political structures under which humankind has been governed or ruled throughout history merits due consideration.

After having considered the state of the unions known as Britain, Europe, and America, our attention now turns to Canada, the country that many consider to be the ‘odd man out’ with regard to the most recent political shifts in the Anglosphere. Continue reading »

642 – State of the unions: Britain – Europe – America, with Salim Mansur

With the realization of Britain’s Brexit, the subsequent shrinking of the European Union, and U.S. President Donald Trump’s popular presidency based on ‘putting America first,’ the idea of ‘globalism and a borderless world’ has suffered a serious setback.

It is a metaphysical necessity that all political organization and activity, irrespective of its nature, requires a jurisdictional structure within which all of the activity takes place. Every political jurisdiction is defined by geographic borders, nor could it be otherwise.

The various political structures under which humanity has been governed or ruled have taken many forms. Among them: an empire, a commonwealth, a kingdom, a republic, a common market, a federation, a state, a province, a union, a nation, a country, a municipality (city, town, village), a region, a territory, etc.

It is significant to note that when the U.S. president annually addresses Americans, his address is not called the State of the ‘Nation,’ but is instead called the State of the ‘Union’. This speaks to a profound distinction regarding the independent nature of the political units being so identified – and the people who live within them.

In this first of a two-part discussion with Dr. Salim Mansur (professor emeritus of political science at Western University), we are guided through a brief history of the rise and fall of nation states. The temporary duration of the various political structures under which humankind has been governed or ruled throughout history – even very recent history – merits due consideration.

In the final analysis, it appears that whatever form a particular political jurisdiction takes, there is never one that can be considered to be Just Right without the consenting support of those who live within its borders.

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

 Comments Off on 641 – Freedom Forward – Philosophy’s indispensable role in determining the Right Direction
Feb 132020
 


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 »

Rethinking Canada – The Alienation of The West

Dec 172019
 

In the first of a 3-part series Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus at Western University, speaks with Robert Vaughan of Just Right Media, and Salim’s Campaign Manager in the 2019 election, about the failings of Canada’s system of government.

The Western provinces and rural Canadians are once again ignored in Parliament as the Liberals under Justin Trudeau have been reelected primarily with the support of the urban voters of Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa.

Regardless of the part in power the dominance of the Laurentian elite in Canadian politics is something which dates back to the founding of our nation and has been a constant irritant to many Canadians outside of Ontario and Quebec who wish to be treated as equal partners in what is supposed to be a Federation of equal provinces.

In Part 1 Salim suggests that the debate on a triple-E Senate needs to be revisited to once and for all address the inequities built into our Westminster-style system of government.

Part 1 – The Alienation of The West
Part 2 – Conservative Party Mediocrity
Part 3 – The People’s Party Option
