National Post contributor and journalist, Rex Murphy’s observation that Canada is not a racist country has rankled the Liberal elites who have taken a knee in faux shame at what they feel is an inherently racist culture ignoring our history and social mores.
Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus at Western University, shares Rex’s view. Mansur, as a brown Indian Muslim who immigrated to Canada as a young man finds Canada to be a refuge from the racism of most other countries and defends its heritage as a free and welcoming society.
May 8, 2020, marks the 75th anniversary of the Allied victory in Europe — VE Day. In the intervening years between that momentous day in 1945 and today, we have seen changes both for the better and for the worse which nobody could have conceived.
Paramount amongst these changes is the way we have come full-circle from the tyranny of the Axis powers to the situation we find ourselves in today with the measures imposed upon a once-free people, not by outside belligerents but by ourselves.
Professor Emeritus Salim Mansur of Western University explains that underlying all such impositions is a reluctance of our culture to understand and embrace individual freedom.

Comments Off on Two flew over the cuckoo’s nest | Salim Mansur
The current drastic measures to reduce the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus have people so much on edge that it is difficult to believe that we can come out of this unscathed psychologically and culturally.
Since 2001 most of us, especially those born since then, have become inured to a culture of surveillance but, with the current pandemic, we seem to be entering into an informant culture where everyone is suspected to be a possible bio-weapon.
Professor Salim Mansur likens our current predicament to Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest with only a few of us realizing that we are in an institution for the insane.
This is a precarious time where the West’s very culture of individual freedom is in peril of being lost forever. Our situation is made all the worse since we are tacitly committing ourselves into an asylum of our own making.

Comments Off on Globalism and the immigration weapon | Salim Mansur
Canada is a country founded primarily by British and European pioneers and settlers with a form of governance based on the Westminster model and populated by a majority of people holding classical liberal political values.
Rather than celebrate the nature of Canada’s culture and its history of individual freedom, globalists, like Justin Trudeau wish to transform this country into a nation of people who are more amenable to socialist and collectivist values and who are more willing to be led from the United Nations rather than Ottawa.
The recent plan of Trudeau and his Liberal government to have millions of immigrants overwhelm and replace the current population of Canada is yet another step in the operation of transforming Canada into a nation of docile collectivists led by a cabal of globalist elites.
This gradual process of cultural suicide is discussed here with Professor Salim Mansur of Western University.

Comments Off on 644 – Gone coronaviral—The infectious politics of spreading fear and panic
Ever since isolated incidents of ‘coronavirus’ have begun appearing outside of China, much of the mainstream and social media alike have gone ‘coronaviral’ by needlessly spreading fear and panic about the flu-like illness. Yet, the real disease that should be feared is China’s political ideology which may have more to do with the breakout of coronavirus than the virus itself.
As our guest Salim Mansur explains, China has been identified as the world’s premier incubator of new infectious flu strains, including: the 1918-19 Spanish flu, the 1957 Asian flu, the Hong Kong flu of 1968, the Russian flu of 1997, the SARS outbreak of 2003, and most recently, the global spread of coronavirus originating in Wuhan. To Salim, this is not surprising. Having himself visited China from its coastal cities to its deepest interior, Salim has witnessed horrifying conditions unimaginable to most of us.
With entire cities of millions being shut down and quarantined, China’s actions have included rounding up, imprisoning, and even shooting its own citizens who were caught walking in the streets. Remarkably, China’s government has been praised by many Western leaders for its handling of the outbreak.
There is a tragic and outrageous irony in this. In the Western nations, the outbreak of coronavirus has been politicized so as to place blame on the Trump administration in the United States, with the mainstream media and those on the Left going so far as to call it the ‘Trump virus.’ Yet, the only justifiable ‘politicization’ of this outbreak falls squarely on China’s communist regime, and on the globalist politicians who have failed to take the appropriate measures to limit its spread.Continue reading »
Comments Off on 643 – Canada’s crisis: from alienation to alien nations?
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 »
Comments Off on 642 – State of the unions: Britain—Europe—America | 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.
