I have lived in Canada a long time, and observed it up close, but I have to say:
Canada is not a real country.
“Canada” as a real country, which can defend itself, was destroyed by America and geography. It’s only border is with America, so it doesn’t have to defend itself, we are friendly and we defend them. And to the west of Canada is a vast ocean no one would bother crossing, just to invade. And to the east of Canada is another vast ocean no one would bother crossing, just to invade. To the north is the Arctic Ocean and polar bears, and no one would bother driving over thousands of miles of frozen wasteland in winter, trillions of mosquitoes and endless boggy lakes, just to invade. And if anyone did go through the trouble of invading, America would protect Canada, because we have a 5,000 mile open border together and that leaves America vulnerable to attack, if anyone else moved in. So, Canada doesn’t need an army, nor navy, nor air force to protect themselves. They have mosquitoes, lakes, cold weather, vast oceans and the United States to protect it.
There is no other country in the world, with this combination of luck.
Canada is not a real country. It’s a soft imaginary protectorate of the United States. Like Puerto Rico, but much colder. History and luck and geography and mosquitoes protect Canada. As such, it has evolved into a fairy tale liberal land, cut off from the brutal Geo-political realities of the rest of the planet. All this has shaped Canadian psychology. On the one hand, in facing the wilderness and creating Canada, there is a streak of toughness, but that is mostly in the past. On the other hand, being coddled from reality for so long, it brought out in Canada, an infantile and unrealistic mentality, so evident in the Canadian Prime Minister. The psychology of Canada was shaped by it’s geography. No one invaded Canada in the past because of geography and because of history, for no one had even found or “discovered” North America and Canada, till a few centuries ago, and for almost the entire history of Canada, war technology had not developed to the point where it was even possible to travel such long, harsh distances, to bother to invade the geographic space known today as “Canada”. So Canada grew for centuries, protected by isolation and the luck of history. And now Canada has it’s big brother The United States, to look after it. So Canada continues it’s fairy tale avoidance of the usual pain of history inflicted on most of the rest of the planet.
For most of human history, Canada was a cold, empty place. As the national poet-song-writer of the old version of Canada, Gordon Lightfoot, as he put it:
“There was a time, in this fair land, when the railroad did not run.
When the wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun
Long before the white man and long before the wheel
When the green dark forest was too silent to be real
But time has no beginnings and hist’ry has no bounds
As to this verdant country they came from all around
They sailed upon her waterways and they walked the forests tall
Built the mines the mills and the factories for the good of us all”….continued below
But that Canada, is long forgotten. Now it is not a pioneering European culture, built equally by the French and the English, with a long and glorious brave and beautiful Native past. Now it is a self-hating, post-national country, having no discernible national story, no identifiable ethnic groups that formed it and no groups that shaped it’s core meaning, and with apparently, no roots in history. Rootless and cut off from knowledge of it’s founding past, like a log floating about, in the ocean, Canada is now a group of confused people, looking for an identity. Real countries have identities. Canada is not a real country.
So let’s stop pretending Canada is a real country. For a time Canada acted like a real grown country, when it participated in wars in Europe, but that was only at the request of it’s original Mother Country, Britain. BPS gives a good account of the glorious, noble Canadian past, when Canada acted like a real country. But the British Empire is long gone and Canada could no longer fight it’s way out of a paper bag. The men of the past should be respected, they deserve it, they deserve a lot of respect, but what they fought for, has been betrayed, by the Trudeau family.
Almost the entire population of Canada lives in a handful of cities, within an hours drive of the U.S. border, it has virtually no army, so a few thousand American soldiers could take it over, in an afternoon in July, and still have time, to stop for ice cream. :)
Feminism and post-modernism came along, took over the universities, and it melded perfectly with a country that had been so pampered and spoiled by circumstances. And this was combined in Canada, by the ruling class, who are largely 3rd generation money, who feel guilty about their privilege, and are ripe fools perfect to be controlled by such a narrative. This was a perfect storm of history, for constructing a national narrative completely cut off from reality. And that’s what Canada is…..a Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland fairy tale of a country.
And it is now led by a perfect embodiment of this, in Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who embodies what Canada has now become: a child-like, weak, feckless Peter Pan of a country. Justin is a social justice warrior of a “man”….who had a rich dad, and rich grandfather: Justin Trudeau. Like many 3rd Generation children that come from money, Justin hates himself, doesn’t think he deserves his wealth and spoiled privilege, (I agree with him on that point) and he embraces the cultural self-hatred implied in post-modernist thinking, because it reflects his own self-hatred and his own awareness that he is not a real man, never had to work for anything he ever got in his life, he truly doesn’t deserve his current status, power and wealth, he knows he is an undeserving phony, it eats him up inside, and he turns his self-hatred onto all that he sees around him, including his entire country, it’s history, it’s founding principles, it’s European past, all of which he attempts to destroy, to make up for his personal sense of guilt, which comes from unearned privilege, power and wealth. Justin Trudeau is a thoroughly sick, mentally ill, spoiled infant of a man, with no grasp of reality. And his mental illness shapes his political world view, which he will use to re-shape and to end Canada, out of personal self-hatred. His infantile, ego maniacal entitled nature, he projects upon the world, and sees the entire world, as a projection of his own screwed up psychology. As is common among the mentally ill, he does not understand the difference between his own mental illness, and the world he sees around him. It’s similar to how an infant under 1 year old, has not differentiated between themselves and the rest of the physical world. These mental limitations are why Justin does not see the difference between himself, who was given everything he had, and didn’t have to work for it, and the ordinary Canadian, who had to work for everything they have, and had to work very hard for it. That’s why he thinks every man in Canada does not deserve what they have. He thinks all men have rich-man-white-male-privilege, and are just as unaccomplished and undeserving as he is.
Likely as not, behind the scenes, the other rich people he grew up with, equally self-hating mentally ill cretins, who also are out of touch with reality, they funded his campaign, and Justin, the part-time drama teacher and pot-head snowboarder, who never accomplished anything in his life, was installed as Prime Minister, and set about installing left wing feminist lunacy as the central tenet of government, and do the bidding of the well off. The only thing he ever worked hard at, was destroying Canada. He embraces feminism because it perfectly fits his own psychology. Feminists say men are all spoiled and undeserving, have privilege, never work for what they have, and are tyrants. Justin is spoiled and undeserving and has privilege, never worked for what he has, and is a tyrant. Feminism is a perfect fit for Justin.
So now, the essential Canadian identity is based on feminism: hatred of white males, guilt and shame for whites in general, a re-working of history to emphasize all the negative, and give no time for the positive. The heroic narrative of the past, where men with courage built a rich, tolerant European based civilization, that narrative has been replaced with a new one that says the history of Canada was mainly about white men being evil, white men oppressing everyone, especially women. That explains the tearing down of statues of male heroes of the past. White men are now to be viewed, with suspicion, if not contempt. Will this work? It seems to me, no nation can survive, long term, based on a cultural narrative of self-hatred and population replacement, but that’s the plan in Canada, as it is elsewhere in most of the advanced nations.
But you might say, am I a conspiracy theorist? What proof do I have that Justin was installed by the rich of Canada, who made him Prime Minister of Canada? Proof is as close as wiki, link below, on the wiki entry on “Power Corporation”, a company in Canada worth $422 Billion in net assets. Since 1969, most of the top, long-lasting political leadership of Canada has worked for Power Corporation, including most of the long running Prime Ministers of Canada, including Pierre Trudeau, Brian Mulroney, John Chretien, Brian Mulroney, Paul Martin. This is an open secret in Canada, among anyone paying attention to politics. A few rich men at Power Corporation, decide who will be Prime Minister….Paul Desmarais, Jr. and Sr, Peter Thompson and Arthur Nesbitt, in days gone by. In fact, since 1969, the only long serving Prime Minister of Canada who did not work for this company, was Stephen Harper, who served for a decade. Other than Mr. Harper, 90% of the time since 1969, the people serving as Prime Minister of Canada, they either worked for Power Corporation, or had strong family ties with the people who run that company, as does Justin Trudeau, whose father was an employee. Proof in link below.
So, I think it’s obvious, the very rich in Canada decide who will be Prime Minister, and they put Justin Trudeau, into office.
But employing most of the people who serve for the most time as Prime Minister, must be expensive. It’s a lot of trouble for rich corporations to hire a bunch of politicians, and pay them well, and then make donations to their political campaigns. What’s in it, for a company worth $422 Billion? Likely money. I have no proof of it, but I’d guess that tax advantages and lucrative government contracts and legislation that favored them, was the reason Power Corporation hired most of the people who served for most of the past half century, as Prime Minister of Canada. People don’t spend millions, without getting something back. Likely as not, laws were changed and this was all legal. That is to say, legal corruption….and Justin is in a long line of Prime Ministers, who do what they are told, so the super-rich of Canada can increase their wealth.
And now the helpless weak infant of Canada, Justin Trudeau, has decided to make official, what we all knew, all along: Canada is Not a real country! And to any Canadians reading this, I say:
This is your leader. R.I.P. Canada
