It’s way way worse
I have struggled with the scales falling from my eyes & the heart wrench of realizing the Canada I thought I lived in is a mirage. But I am ready to accept. I am ready to leave. I have a 2-3 decades left & I will not spend them as a tax pawn for the corrupt. Calling a family meeting to make plans…Thanks so much for being a brutal forthright part of my personal awakening. Your words have brought clarity with inevitability that is motivating. I plan to build something truly beautiful without the pain of watching actual canada ruining lives of incredible people.
Just got back from the Rally in Victoria, which is still going strong. I estimated that there were at least 500 people present, loads of Canadian flags, lots of "Oh Canada" singing... A handful of counter protesters. Overall loads of good energy and good spirits.
First of all, stop scaring me by taking me seriously. I'm just a writer who mainlines history and has lived through all this nonsense before (besides being "educated elite" for Portugal, so I know their thoughts and habitat.)
Second: The only thing I think you missed (Very good post, which I'll put up at instapundit if I remember -- eh. Life is very busy just now) is that yes, they have these plans. They've had them since the seventies. BUT they've become increasingly detached from reality.
The "kids" starting at about my age really don't know how the world, or people work. They have this constructed fantasy in their heads of how things will happen.
And the picture is actually and for real impossible. (I have wondered if this is the result of our being steeped in story telling more than any other civilization in history. And also the storytelling being controlled by Marxists, who have formulaic, cult-like beliefs. I mean, they can't ALL be stupid, right? But I've found myself trying to break from the mold of stories on how things will go from here.)
The world can't work without.... well, workers. But these people think it can. Like, you know, Facebook thinking they can create the matrix and we have the science. (We don't.)
The truckers are exposing how this can't work. The left thinks that they can have automated trucks, but it's actually probably impossible, long term. They think we can have all solar and water, but engineers laugh at the idea. (Which is why the left started taking over engineering schools. Because anything that negates their wants must be willful, not just reality.)
I think the panic in the US started with "have to fraud at the last minute." After the greatest campaign against a sitting president EVER people went and voted for Trump in a landslide. So the planned fraud was insufficient. Then "Let's go Brandon" going viral. And finally people removing masks and ignoring their shrieks.
They were scared before, now they're in an unthinking panic.
It's going to get dangerous.
BUT their plans won't work. They won't because they can't. Unfortunately we'll all pay for them. And I want to point out this started before I was born. It's not our fault. But if we want our kids and grandkids to survive, we have to fight. NOW. (And the only thing I CAN do is words.)
Nothing else occurring right now makes one realize how abhorrent the Biden administration is than its calculated silence in response to raw tyranny. Only a collection of despicable hacks like this one would be more concerned with what's happening in Ukraine than right above the largest shared border in the world. And it's time more conservative news entities started trumpeting that reality--as loudly and clearly as possible.
One set of my parent's grandchildren are married to feeders of the public trough; the other set run a profitable business that is beneficial to society. I fear for the future of THEIR children.
I am 71 and not long for this world: in twenty years, I will likely be euthanized by medical order against my will due to state budgeting constraints bred of a staggering debt.
I have thought for at least the last ten years, God help me, that there is no remaining civil solution for the tyrannical ills that plague the West. The fair election is gone. The rule of law is over, and here we are. I do not advocate insurrection, but the writings of the American founders are pretty clear as to our responsibilities if we wish to remain free peoples. I salute Canada for leading the way, and would be thrilled if it were they who went down in history as the vanguard of the return to freedom in this hemisphere.
"I believe that liberty is the only genuinely valuable thing that men have invented, at least in the field of government, in a thousand years. I believe that it is better to be free than to be not free, even when the former is dangerous and the latter safe. I believe that the finest qualities of man can flourish only in free air -- that progress made under the shadow of the policeman's club is false progress, and of no permanent value. I believe that any man who takes the liberty of another into his keeping is bound to become a tyrant, and that any man who yields up his liberty, in however slight the measure, is bound to become a slave." — H.L. Mencken
Hello from the UK
Many thanks for you post. I appreciate it is nearly a year now but I did my bit to support the truckers. I believe Canada is still suffered badly under Turdeau.
Thanks, Elizabeth. As usual, laser-focused. None of the public commentary mentions the WEF and Schwab's agenda. It's in plain sight but the media never mention it. The WEF tentacles are ubiquitous and obviously quite terrifying to those who should be reporting on their global agenda and who appear to be in their clutches.

Until the parasites that are actually in charge are taken out…no one stands a chance. You know who these parasites are…you just don’t have the courage to say it or think it. That should tell you all you need to know about who truly rules you and me.
All of the government action and thuggery consumes wealth. Wealth for things like police equipment, tear gas canisters, armored vehicles, donuts, salaries. Prior to the adoption of fiat money that wealth could only come from the citizen whose work and creativity created it, and from whom it was paid in taxes and the willingness to write that big check.
With fiat money, government officials think that when they print money out of thin air they are creating wealth. Because they induced people who actually create the wealth to use the fiat money, their wealth is being embezzled from them by continually diluting the value of this currency.
This is the evil aspect of fiat money. It severs the natural constraint on government power that honest money imposes. With fiat, government can shut down the private economy in the name of health, destroying the ability of thoses businesses to create wealth, and then print money to make up the difference. But this is a mirage that is unsustainable. It is a big mirage. It enables tyranny.
At the moment, the only recourse is for people to avoid using government money as mush as possible. Keep as little of fiat money in your bank account as possible. Move to exchange using other means like silver. Store any spare assets in non fiat forms, like shares of physical gold ETFs or physical silver. Stop funding the government’s own scheme to steal your liberty.
