“I fear we are becoming a society of atomized individuals,” says Professor Salim Mansur of Western University. “And as atomized individuals, we can then be manipulated whichever way the powers want to manipulate us because we don’t know where we are headed. We don’t trust each other. And that leads to atomization where we exist but we no longer exist as a people related to each other, sharing common values, and upon which then we engage with each other. It means a very bleak future.”
Join us in conversation with Professor Mansur as we discuss the erosion of trust in society, the erosion of Western culture, and the corrupted news media which lies at the heart of our mistrust.

Comments Off on 726 – Emergency ethics and the rule of lawlessness
There is a growing fear among many in the legal profession that the courts are no longer an instrument of justice. Laws, rules, and definitions are being constantly manipulated to push the perpetual mantra of ‘getting vaccinated,’ which has all along been the objective even before anyone ever heard of coronavirus.
The Ontario Human Rights Commission recently ruled that “requiring proof of vaccination to protect people at work or when receiving services is generally permissible.”
Given the nature and dismal record of the so-called ‘vaccines’ in question, the ruling is immoral, irrational, and futile. Even those pushing the vaccines admit that the ‘vaccines’ offer no protection against getting or spreading the ‘virus,’ no matter the variant being offered on any given day.
Many rightly consider the vaccine mandates to be a violation of their rights even though that may not be the case in law. Justified by declaring a ‘state of emergency,’ it appears that governments are permitted to violate rights and impose restrictions on individual freedom without limits. Continue reading »
“Don’t forget to take your vitamins today. I took mine but they won’t work unless you take yours.” Silly, yes. But such is the non sequitur being used to promote and mandate dangerous ‘experimental’ injections into the arms of every man woman and child on the face of the planet.
The cognitive dissonance required to accept this kind of logic as a reason to ‘get a jab’ or to sacrifice one’s individual freedom is a subject that deserves our attention, especially since a significant portion of the population actually thinks this way. Many of them would not see the humor in our opening ‘vitamin’ example.
For those who still don’t get the joke, taking vitamins (or any medicines) works for the person taking them even if no one else takes vitamins. Seriously. That’s actually a fact. Similarly, getting vaccinated works for the vaccinated even if no one else gets vaccinated. Seriously. That’s what being ‘vaccinated’ means. Otherwise, it’s not a vaccine.
Not only that, but being ‘vaccinated’ means being vaccinated ‘against’ something. Yet, according to the manufacturers of the injections themselves, the so-called ‘Covid’ vaccines do not even protect against ‘Covid’ or prevent the spread of any viruses that may cause ‘Covid.’ Still, despite these glaring admissions, there are people who take the jab under the exact opposite expectation, oblivious to what they have been told.
But the cognitive dissonance doesn’t end there. Many take the ‘vaccine’ in the hope of regaining some limited freedom of mobility. But again, officials have already told us in no uncertain terms that whether vaccinated or not, mask wearing, lockdowns, and more forced ‘vaccinations’ will continue unabated. Consider the sheer lunacy of it all. Continue reading »
The West’s capitulation in Afghanistan marks a pivot point in East-West geopolitics and just as the 20th century was Europe-centered in politics and culture the 21st century will have all eyes on Asia with Afghanistan being at the heart of it.
The West abandoned colonialism after World War II only to replace it with “Nation Building” which, as our guest, Professor Salim Mansur describes, is just colonialism under another name and doomed to fail.
As Salim explains, the West was unprepared for this dynamic shift and rather than end its failed efforts to build democracies in parts of the world where there is no history of individualism it has instead embraced the tribal and collectivist attitudes of its enemies resulting in a string of military failures and the deconstruction of Western values here at home.
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.

Comments Off on 716 – Parallels—From Covid to tyranny | Dave Plumb
In our previous broadcast with guest Dave Plumb, we examined the alarming political parallels behind climate change and Covid-19. Both issues are being exploited in an effort to lead world populations into accepting tyranny as their ‘new normal’ and it has been a remarkably successful effort.
Perhaps the most offensive and visible evil of the state lockdowns (now being justified by ‘vaccination’ agendas and no longer by flattening curves) is the mandated wearing of facemasks.
Not only are facemasks demonstrably useless in preventing the spread of viruses, they are also an extreme health danger to those who wear them for prolonged periods of time. Similarly, not only are the ‘vaccinations’ against Covid demonstrably useless for that purpose, but they too are an extreme health danger to those who take the jab.
Yet this paradox has both exposed and identified the whole COVID-19 fraud from the very beginning. It has been a steady pattern of repeated contradictions, about-turns, and outright lies being openly spouted by our elected officials on behalf of unelected bureaucrats.
Of course, the real purpose of mandating facemasks has nothing to do with health, but with politics. Compliance and submission are the government’s masked goals while the masks themselves serve as a visible measurement of that compliance.
Better still, from the statist point of view, the masks are a tool of propaganda that also visibly reminds everyone there is a ‘pandemic’ in progress – a ‘pandemic’ that would otherwise have gone unnoticed were it not for persistent propaganda and censorship.
So where is all this leading? In the progression of cause and effect, it is natural and Just Right to understand that all things about Covid are a ‘medical’ prescription for political tyranny.

Comments Off on 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 »
