At a time when the tyranny of the administrative state has taken hold on most Western governments, the great danger in any current attempts to change laws or amend constitutions is that, because law reflects the culture, freedom will continue to be eroded instead of being valued and protected.
“Law is a product of culture,” observes our guest Bruce Pardy, Executive Director of Rights Probe who has recently testified before the National Citizen’s Inquiry. Given the current culture of tyranny, any amendments or changes to current laws or charters would tend to further restrict our rights and freedoms, not defend them.
Numerous failed court challenges to the mandated Covid lockdowns and injections have demonstrated that Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects neither rights nor freedom. Without recourse to a legal remedy to a violation of any given right, that right does not exist, warns Pardy.
By describing law as a political language that legitimizes politics, Pardy connects the dots between politics and the values of the culture on which its political policies are founded.
Recognizing that culture precedes politics, calling for a cultural remedy to cure the political disease may seem too abstract and difficult to achieve. But the cure is simple, even if not always quick and easy.
It takes the form of courageously speaking out with a voice of truth until truth becomes a fundamental value of the culture. After all, unless the culture is Just Right, its laws will never be so.
