TYRANNY OF MINORITIES

on | Filed under Climate Change, Global Warming

It’s sad to see how far down the diversity rabbit hole we’ve been driven. Diversity – Division – Divide. Canadians have been bombarded with the claim that Canada is a mosaic. Think about that. A mosaic is made of pieces of coloured glass or tile stuck in place and divided from each other by cement!

No matter when or from where we came, the snow falls on all of us. There is only one Canada. There are about 37 million unique and distinct individual persons in it.

However, have you noticed the obscene number of occasions recently that have frustrated Canadians’ ability to get things done? We’re lost in a blizzard of blockades. Radical minorities claiming to speak for aboriginal, religious, ancestral or sex-preference minorities, or wasteful/incompetent provincial governments, or climate crazies, have all chosen blocking of action beneficial to the majority of Canadians as their main purpose in life.

“When the minority is able to frustrate action by the majority, it becomes a tyranny.” Ascribed to Thomas B. Reed, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives 1890 to 1899.

“The first test of a democracy is not how it treats its minorities, but how it serves its majority. Does the great bulk of the population live in an environment of civil liberty, social security and economic opportunity?” William Thorsell, Globe & Mail, January 8, 2000.

The tyranny of minorities has become a colossal problem for Canada. It has to stop.

We Need To Delete The Climate Change Swindlers 

 

First some scientific facts. Global climate warms and cools. We are living in an Ice Age that began about 40 million years ago, in a warming Interglacial that began about 20,000 years ago, in a warming Period that began about 1850, and in a short term cooling phase that began about 2002. The Roman warming Period lasted about 450 years from 250 BC to 200 AD. The next three Periods before ours each lasted about 550 years –  the Dark Ages cooling Period from 200 AD to 750 AD, the Medieval warming Period from 750 AD to 1300 AD, and the “Little Ice Age” cooling Period from 1300 AD to 1850 AD.

Warming and Cooling Predictions

A partial list of predictions and comments over 117 years

Source: Press Release, “Earth Day 2008: Predictions of Environmental Disaster Were Wrong,” Washington Policy Center, April 22, 2008.

“Is our climate changing? The succession of temperate summers and open winters through several years, culminating last winter in the almost total failure of the ice crop throughout the valley of the Hudson, makes the question pertinent. The older inhabitants tell us that the winters are not as cold now as when they were young, and we have all observed a marked diminution of the average cold even in this last decade. – New York Times, June 23, 1890  Read the rest of this entry »

How Did Jefferson Know?

on | Filed under Governance

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement:

“This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

“When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe .”

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”

Brave New World?

on | Filed under Uncategorized

The following italicized paragraphs are extracted from my essay; “The Personalist Manifest” completed in September, 1998, and forming part of my collection of six essays collectively entitled, “Personalism v. Socialism” published in spring 2001.

It is amazing how accurately Mr. Huxley foresaw the future. It is horrifying how much more quickly it is occurring than even he anticipated.

Aldous Huxley wrote the classic future fiction novel “Brave New World” in 1932. Huxley was a brilliant scholar and ardent socialist, until he saw the Soviet Union in action! The story is set about 2,500 AD, mainly in England.

In “Brave New World”, the oligarchic elites have gone way beyond the 20th Century socialist dictators who controlled by mass slaughters, planned famines, gulags, re-education “camps” and other nasty goings‑on. Those methods were much too inefficient. In the future “ideal” socialist state, the oligarchic elites control a peaceable population of mindless drones who love their slavery ‑ who can’t even conceive of an alternative.

Is Capitalism Conservative?

on | Filed under Governance

“The word ‘capitalism’ was coined by Karl Marx who hoped this labelling would help in his crusade to denigrate the system of private property and market enterprise and promote socialism.” [from a book review published in the Ludwig Von Mises Institute’s DAILY ARTICLE.]

But ‘capitalism’ is a very limited, specific term for one of the three ways humans do business where ‘business’ involves some or all of the processes of producing, distributing and exchanging goods and services. ‘Barter’ and ‘mercantilism’ are the other two terms.

Marx believed that business was the sole concern of humanity – that man was just an economic animal. Of course this is false – human activity involves much more than just business. But, he was so successful in persuading a substantial majority of the linguistic and educator communities to his view, that, for at least the last two generations, ‘capitalism’ has been elevated to the same level as, and the antithesis of, ‘socialism’ Read the rest of this entry »

Reds Are Socialists

on | Filed under Governance

In the election when President Ronald Reagan won all but one state, a commentator described a map of the results as looking like a “blue lake”.

When posting the results of the 2000 presidential election, a history-challenged TV graphics person coloured the democratic states blue and the republican states red. For some inexplicable reason, the entire media establishment of the USA mindlessly continues to perpetuate that ridiculous error.

For more than 200 years red has been the colour of socialists – red army, red Chinese, REDS, etc., and blue has been the colour of conservatives. All the rest of the world still does this.

It might help sort out out the confusions in people’s minds if the US media returned to calling the Democrats “Reds” and the Republicans “Blues”!

Cancun Conference On Global Warming

on | Filed under Global Warming

I usually add some gentle humor when I report. Not today. Read this and weep. Notwithstanding the carefully-orchestrated propaganda to the effect that nothing much will be decided at the UN climate conference here in Cancun, the decisions to be made here this week signal nothing less than the abdication of the West. The governing class in what was once proudly known as the Free World is silently, casually letting go of liberty, prosperity, and even democracy itself. No one in the mainstream media will tell you this, not so much because they do not see as because they do not bl**dy care. Read the rest of this entry »
