In a Sept 1 Open Letter to Prime Minister Trudeau, a group of prominent Canadian media interests called for the establishment of nothing less than a police state. “We are asking police forces to take several immediate steps… to combat abuse of journalists and all victims of online hate and harassment,” they chimed.

Among signatories to the request are the National Post, the Globe & Mail, Canadian Association of Broadcasters, the Canadian Association of Journalists, the Winnipeg Free Press, Toronto Star, TV Ontario, Quebecor, Postmedia, OMNI News, La Presse, City News, and many others.

Citing a global problem “in relation to the increasing and alarming online hate and harassment targeting journalists and journalism as a profession,” the letter called for an abandonment of investigating “individual complaints.” Instead, it called for a system allowing the media itself to report “patterns” that identify “connections of extremist groups” by means of “similar language, the language commonly used by domestic extremist groups.”

Lacking any specifics or examples, the letter is evidence of an inability to counter alternative narratives that demonstrate how inaccurate and misleading their own news coverage has been. The deafening silence from the state-sponsored media in response to Joe Biden’s Sept 1 speech served as an ironic backdrop to the request from a media that can no longer be trusted to report the news.

As accumulating data and verifiable narratives continue to show how the “fake news media” earned its reputation, the natural resentment and disgust with fake news is now being experienced as “online hate and harassment.” But instead of countering alternative narratives with their own, the media fascists have opted for state control of the competition.

Of course, the right thing to always do is to ensure an exchange of ideas and perspectives in an open forum free of any censorship. Through such exchanges – or from a refusal to participate in them – one can best discover and learn to trust those media sources that consistently prove to be Just Right in their search for the truth.

760 – Projecting a state of freedom | Derek Proulx

 Comments Off on 760 – Projecting a state of freedom | Derek Proulx

“Live free or die” is the state motto of New Hampshire, and our guest Derek Proulx, a volunteer with the Free State Project elaborates: “…for death is not the worst of evils – slavery is.”

The strategy behind the project depends upon attracting a significant number of liberty-minded activists to a single state, one with a low enough population to effectively enable them to lobby and influence the local culture so as to elect more freedom-oriented political representatives to local governments.

Remarkably, there are other similar projects springing up, such as one now underway in Alberta involving the separation of that province from the rest of Canada. Its proponents argue that Alberta must be freed from the tyranny and “abuse” of the federal government.

But why these strategies? It appears the realization that freedom-loving people are a minority is causing many of them to create a refuge from the submissive majority. The success of their efforts is being measured against how well a particular ‘free state’ can maintain its independence and freedom segregated from the majority culture.

In the short run, this strategy can be judged successful but the greater challenge – and long-term danger – still remains. A free state cannot long co-exist next to a tyrannical state, let alone within one, as is the case with provinces and states within their republics or confederations. History and logic both demonstrate that the more dominant state will inevitably rule the smaller.

Thus the necessity of inculcating a philosophy and deep understanding of the nature of individual freedom remains an eternal task, one that must be directed beyond the confines of a segregated jurisdiction
. Establishing a universal awareness and appreciation of freedom’s profound virtue and benefits is a cultural pre-requisite towards establishing any free state – or free nation – or free world – in a manner that’s Just Right.

“Essentially, thousands of people have been killed by the direct actions taken by their governments. And we go out of that straight into this conflict in Ukraine, (but) who are the ‘good guys’ now? Who are any of us – as nations – to stand up and call out tyranny anymore? We’ve all embraced tyranny!”

Powerful words – from a cartoonist whose images invoke even greater power. That’s why our guest, British cartoonist Bob Moran, is now part of the ‘independent media’ where he has been freed to express his view of the truth.

As a former cartoonist with The Telegraph, the power and influence of Moran’s work was demonstrated by that paper’s dismissing him for expressing opinions inconsistent with the paper’s tyrannical narrative. Now through the Democracy Fund, Moran has dedicated himself to making his cartoons available for free in an effort to broaden awareness of the true political, moral, and social crisis in which we find ourselves.

As to the power of art itself, Ayn Rand once described its source this way:

“Metaphysics – that science that deals with the fundamental nature of reality – involves man’s widest abstractions. It includes every concrete he has ever perceived, it involves such a vast sum of knowledge and such a long chain of concepts that no man could hold it all in the focus of his immediate conscious awareness. Yet he needs that sum and that awareness to guide him – he needs the power to summon them into full, conscious focus. That power is given to him by art.” (Ayn Rand, Art and Sense of Life)

Thus the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” proves Just Right since images have the power to accelerate an awareness of the truth in a way that words alone cannot.

755 – Elon Musk’s ‘private’ strategy for free speech

 Comments Off on 755 – Elon Musk’s ‘private’ strategy for free speech
Apr 212022
 


Widespread speculation about the consequences of Elon Musk’s recent offer to buy Twitter has produced some interesting narratives of hope, doubts, skepticism, and celebration.

Motivations aside, Musk’s actions have clearly upset members of the ‘fake news’ media, while those on the side of ‘truth and free speech’ are cheering him on.

Twitter’s reputation as a censor of viewpoints that do not support ‘official’ narratives on everything from climate change to Ukraine has been well earned. Even the president of the United States, Donald Trump, was banned from the social media site.

Paradoxically, Twitter claimed its right to censor and prohibit access under the premise that it is a private company (though publicly traded), while Musk now suggests that his purchase and private ownership of Twitter is the means to protect free speech on the site.

Meanwhile, efforts to control the public narrative by governments and politicians continue to go well beyond mere censorship. For example, Canada’s government is now in the process of forcing Facebook and Google to subsidize selected Canadian news outlets. So the battle to protect freedom of speech is far from over.

As a strategy for protecting free speech, it will remain to be seen whether Twitter’s possible change of status under Elon Musk proves to be Just Right, or whether it is but one small step in the Right direction.

Canada’s ‘fake news’ media has transformed itself from being the ‘mainstream’ to being the ‘mean-stream’ media. Even before the Truckers for Freedom convoy arrived in Ottawa last weekend, the ‘mean stream’ of misleading and false accusations made against them have offered the world first-hand evidence of the media’s hatred and intolerance towards peaceful freedom-loving Canadians.

Indeed, the sheer intolerance and disrespect towards those who have a different opinion exhibited by Leftist ‘pro-vaxxers’ stands in stark contrast to those labeled ‘anti-vaxxers’ or some variant of a right-wing pejorative. The latter exhibit no animosity whatever towards the former, and would never deprive them of their right to choose.

The Left, on the other hand, would deny the ‘unvaxxed’ health care, freedom of association, freedom of speech, the freedom to work, and certainly the freedom to remain injection free. They would segregate them entirely from the rest of those who submit to political mandates.

Trudeau’s unconscionable statements expressing intolerance for the ‘unvaccinated’ and the ‘unacceptability’ of certain political opinions have been met with revulsion and disgust on the part of those who value individual freedom.

Yet his fascist intolerance has also been met with an increased popularity in the polls, as has been the case with similarly intolerant and fascist provincial premiers. Thanks to the ‘mean-stream’ media, a majority of Canadians remain isolated from the truth about the lockdowns and ‘vaccines’ that are no such thing.

As inspiring, positive, and re-assuring as the world record-breaking event in Ottawa has been for those on (and in) the Right, Justin Trudeau and his paid-for ‘mean-stream’ media have been doing everything possible to portray the event as some kind of racist-fascist plot to overthrow the country. We can expect more of the same propaganda to come.

So far, it looks as if the Truckers for Freedom have done everything Just Right; now comes the hard part.

Hate is alive and well within Canada’s mainstream political parties and media, and mandated vaccination passports have made this socially acceptable.

Expect an onslaught of hate against the Right to be intensified over the coming months ahead. The increased popularity of the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) following the Canadian election has triggered the likes of Canada’s prime minister Justin Trudeau to publicly deliver an unconscionable hate rant – against the so-called ‘unvaccinated’ – unlike anything ever heard from a Canadian prime minister.

Despite the visible tidal wave of deaths and ‘adverse’ reactions to the so-called ‘vaccines’ being mandated by governments everywhere, Trudeau nevertheless continues to mandate the poisonous concoctions. But with adverse reactions expected to reach astronomical proportions over the months ahead, those pushing the ‘vaccines’ can’t hide forever.

Like globalists everywhere, our political tyrants have gotten themselves backed into an unresolvable disaster of their own making. Their chosen recourse now is to look for scapegoats on which to project their failures, hatreds, and sheer immorality.

Outrageously, and against all the evidence, they are blaming the unvaccinated for causing the harms done by their mandated ‘vaccines.’ For the ‘vaccinated,’ the catch-22 is that even they will be categorized as being unvaccinated after an established number of months; perpetual ‘booster shots’ are on the horizon, and promised freedoms will never materialize. Papers, please.

The so-called vaccine passports serve as passports to the politics of hate and are a means to divide and conquer both sides of the vaccine issue. Of course, the issue of ‘hate’ is less about hate itself, but about ‘what’ or ‘who’ that hate is being directed against. The irony and paradox about hate is that the Left considers it Just Right to hate a Right that represents freedom, tolerance, and respect.

726 – Emergency ethics and the rule of lawlessness

 Comments Off on 726 – Emergency ethics and the rule of lawlessness
Sep 302021
 


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 »
