Open Letter to Justin Trudeau (Since he claimed the right to freeze everybody’s bank accounts)</span

Trevor in Trimley

Dear Justin Trudeau,

How do you do it? It’s like you’re a psychic gifted with an intuitive capacity far beyond the range of normal people. I would never have known the truckers were racist just by looking at them, but apparently you can spot it from a mile away!

And how did you know that they have “unacceptable views” without ever talking to them? Genius! Is this the result of special training or were you born this way?

I must confess I’m so old-fashioned I still need racists to actually do or say something racist before I know I’m dealing with one. I was singing your praises to Mrs Trevor in Trimley only this morning and she agreed you have special gifts. (Actually she said you have special needs, she gets mixed up sometimes.)

My Great Aunt Mabel had the gift too, but sadly those were different times and she was institutionalised. Perhaps when you die you should leave your brain to ‘the science?’

But I know you’re a busy man so I shall get to my point. I should tell you that it is Mrs Trevor in Trimley who prompted me to pen you this letter.

She rightly brought to my attention that she has recently sent money (£20 as a birthday gift) to a cousin who emigrated to Canada in 1983, and she is now understandably concerned that Laurence may have gone off the rails since then and joined the ranks of the many hundreds of thousands of Canadians who have become racists, misogynists and terrorists during your premiership.

Between you and me, I always had misgivings about “long haired Larry” and would not be the least bit surprised to see him flying a banner inscribed with provocative white supremacist language on it like, ‘freedom!’ (Yeah, sure Larry, freedom for whites like you but what about freedom for people who like to black up on social occasions?)

Mrs Trevor in Trimley’s concern, of course, is that her largesse may be mistaken for funding terrorism and that her bank account could be frozen, or worse, that she might be kicked out of the Women’s Institute if her name emerges on a list of supporters of working-class struggles against the powerful, and all as a result of her being thoughtlessly generous to a person without first checking the acceptability of his current views.

I offer my sincere apologies for my wife’s generous nature and would like to make a suggestion that I hope makes up for it.

To help us, and other non-Canadians, avoid making similar missteps in future, may I ask that you put in place a clear system that clarifies the views held by Canadian people we may come into contact with.

My suggestion is that you ask Canadians to answer a simple “acceptable views” questionnaire, perhaps on a weekly basis? If their answers are published online we’ll be able to see whether or not we’re funding terrorism when we send them money for charitable causes they support, or money at birthdays and Christmas, etc.

My suggested ten questions are:

  1. Do you like Justin Trudeau?
  2. Do you admire Justin Trudeau?
  3. Are you now or have you ever been a member of a political party that opposes Justin Trudeau?
  4. Do you want Justin Trudeau to utterly destroy the Canadian economy to prevent you from feeling under the weather for a week or two?
  5. Do you think Justin Trudeau bears a passing resemblance to any notable Cubans?
  6. Do you think Justin Trudeau is right (they shouldn’t even need to read the rest of this question) that the truckers’ convoy is just as serious an emergency situation as World Wars 1 and 2?
  7. Do you think Justin Trudeau should stay in hiding for the rest of his life, yes or no? (This is a trick question Justin to confuse anyone who thinks they can cheat the test!)
  8. Can you, hand on heart, state that Justin Trudeau is right that there are ZERO treatments that work against COVID except for the glorious vaccines that will save the world?
  9. Would Canada be better off abandoning democracy entirely and installing Justin Trudeau as Supreme Leader?
  10. Would you like to see Justin Trudeau as President of a one world government?

My grading system would be:

10 pro-Trudeau answers = Acceptable views.

Anything less = A gulag in Saskatchewan, or just Saskatchewan, whichever is harder to escape from.

Once again, please accept our apologies and know that I am fully in support of your stance AGAINST wanting people to die of COVID, and AGAINST racists, misogynists, transphobics, homophobics, terrorists, and everything else that’s impossible for anyone to publicly support, and that you’ve so cleverly founded your political ideology on.

Who could ever argue successfully with any of that??!!

Please be assured that any unfortunate error made by Mrs Trimley was just carelessness with her innate human desire to give generously to people less well off than herself and should not be interpreted as a hostile act towards you personally or anyone else lacking those instincts.

We’re on your side! To prove it, I have begun a fundraiser with GoFundMe.com to support your campaign to be Dictator of Canada! This is gonna be huge! I’ve kicked it off with a pound. You’re on your way!

Yours sincerely,

Trevor in Trimley

PS. I’ve just watched a couple of YouTube videos of the truckers and now you’ve pointed it out, it’s so clear they’re racist! The black racist truckers I saw were obviously the worst. Who are they even racist against??? Is it white people or themselves??? Please advise.

Hey but why are we wasting time on these fripperies?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-60429942

“Record number of LGBT characters on US TV, study says”

But even then, we’re not doing enough!

“But the study also found there were shortfalls and missing opportunities to tell a wider range of stories about LGBT characters.”

There follows a statistical breakdown of … oh OK we’ll skip that bit. I’ll just say that I wasn’t even aware that “Killing Eve was given as an example of an LGBT inclusive series with “bisexual significant characters””

No matter! Let’s get to that shameful shortfall thing:

“But it wasn’t all good news, as there were missed opportunities to tell a wider range of stories about LGBT characters. Characters with HIV were found to be rarely represented, with the report saying only two recurring TV characters on any scripted show have HIV, despite more than a million Americans living with the virus. It also noted that many series can often include one LGBT character among several straight characters, and wanted to see shows with a majority LGBT cast.”

We all know those Canadian truckers are evil because they are opposed to these exciting developments. And who cares about mass concerns like … you know … livelihoods and food supplies?

Oh Canada: Trudeau’s Government Condemns Cuba Over Free Speech As Canada Cracks Down on Free Speech
JONATHAN TURLEY
February 19, 2022   

The Trudeau government went public this week with a condemnation of Cuba over its lack of free speech protections as the government deployed unprecedented powers to crackdown on Canadian truckers and their supporters. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has invoked the 1988 Emergencies Act for the first time to freeze accounts of truckers and contributions by other Canadian citizens. It was entirely unnecessary and, while the media is largely supportive of Trudeau, the powers have been condemned by civil liberties groups in Canada.

‘…….In fascism, psychic mass illness was thrust into the open.
The opponents of fascism…. sought the solution to the problem in the personality of Hitler or in the formal political errors of the various democratic parties of Germany….In reality, Hitler was merely the expression of the tragic contradiction between the longing for freedom and actual fear of freedom.
German fascism made it quite clear that it operated not with people’s thinking and knowledge, but with their childish emotional reactions. Neither its political program nor any one of its many confused economic promises carried fascism to power and secured it in the period that followed. In the main, it was the appeal to a dark, mystical feeling, to a vague, nebulous, but extraordinary powerful longing. Those who did not grasp this did not grasp fascism, which is an international phenomena.
The irrationalism in actions of the masses of the German people can be illustrated by the following contradiction: the masses of the German people wanted “freedom.” Hitler promised them authoritarian, strictly dictatorial leadership, with the explicit exclusion of any freedom of speech. Seventeen million out of thirty-one million voters jubilantly carried Hitler to power in March 1933. Those who watched the event with open eyes knew that the masses of people felt helpless and incapable of bearing responsibility for the solution of the chaotic social problems within the old political framework and system of thinking. The Fuhrer should and would do it for them.
Hitler promised to eliminate democratic discussion of opinions. Masses of people flocked to him. They were tired of these discussions, because these discussions always bypassed their personal everyday needs, that is, what was subjectively important. They did not want discussions about the “budget” and “high politics.” What they wanted was concrete, true knowledge about life. Not getting it, they threw themselves into the hands of authoritarian leadership and the illusionary protection they were now promised.
Hitler promised to do away with individual freedom and establish “national freedom.” Masses of people enthusiastically exchanged the possibility of individual freedom for illusionary freedom, that is, freedom through identification with an idea. This illusionary freedom relieved them of all individual responsibility. They craved a “freedom” which the Fuhrer was going to conquer and secure for them; the freedom to yell; the freedom to escape the truth into the lies of political principle; the freedom to be sadistic; the freedom to boast, in spite of one’s actual nothingness, that one is a member of a superior race; the freedom to attract girls with uniforms instead of a strong sense of humanity; the freedom to sacrifice oneself for imperialistic aims instead of for the concrete struggle for a better life, etc…….

Hitler promised the destruction of the socialistic and bourgeois democratic organizations. Socialistic and bourgeois democratic masses of people flocked to him because, though their organizations spoke a great deal about freedom, they never mentioned the difficult problem of the human craving for authority and the helplessness of the masses in practical politics. The masses of people had been disappointed by the irresolute attitude of the old democratic institutions. Disappointment on the part of the masses of people in liberal organizations, plus economic crisis, plus an irresistible will to freedom, produce fascist mentality, i.e., the willingness to surrender oneself to an authoritarian father figure.’

The health of the US military seemed to show a massive decline in 2021 compared to the previous five years – so the previous five years’ figures were “corrected” (i.e. the amounts of illness increased tenfold) so 2021 wouldn’t look so anomalous:

So, the first thing I’d look at would be the stats for the 5 year period before the one in question. But it’s hard to believe that these errors of the past 2016-2020 period would not have been caught or observed long before the current stats became known. ???

Yet, on the other hand, the increases do seem a bit too high. ???

Amusing that people are hot and bothered now. Trudeau is running the exact same playbook that Harper did, but with the opposite identitarian camouflage.

“NEWS: HARPER’S DAVOS AGENDA MUST BE STOPPED”https://canadians.org/analysis/news-harpers-davos-agenda-must-be-stopped

Here’s how the pre-“Naziboi” government in Canada dealt with dissent:
“Toronto G20 protests – You Should Have Stayed At Home – the fifth estate”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sX0BbLc_PIk

“Police State Canada”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10aRLayxxBQ

The President of the Privy Council and Minister for Emergency Preparedness now is the same guy who was in charge of the fascist response in Toronto 2020.

For the numpos on this site blathering on about how there is no more left and right, this is all right-wing. It is all corporate dominance of the state, or what Klaus Schwab likes to call, “stakeholder capitalism”. It’s the very essence of the Right.

Referring to neoliberal corporate-owned scumbags like British Labour, or the Canadian NDP as “left” is beyond retarded. If you believe that there are mainstream political parties on the left, the Democrats in the US, as an example, you should probably put a plastic bag over your head and eat twenty or thirty percosets and valiums.

You’ve always been the caretaker.

I think perhaps you may be echoing the same sentiments as many of those “numpos”.
But just not realizing it.
When many people claim there is no more “left” and “right”, they often mean in practice.
I.e. – many claiming to represent the “left” are engaging in many the same policies, tactics & practices as many on the “right”.

The political scientist, political philosopher and historian Alexis de Tocqueville had the same sentiments when he stated/wrote:
The last thing abandoned by a party is its phraseology, because among political parties, as elsewhere, the vulgar make the language, and the vulgar abandon more easily the ideas that have been instilled into it than the words that it has learnt.

Meaning that people tend to use spin, rather than true ideology, in regards to their parties & movements.
Many Politicians will use catch-phrases like “left-wing” & “socialism” & such just to appeal to certain voters & bases.

Have you ever looked at the largest campaign contributors of supposed “Progressive” Politicians like Bernie Sanders? Or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? Or Elizabeth Warren?
Each is being heavily-sponsored by many of the largest corporations on the planet.
And speaking of “Progressive” Elizabeth Warren, remember TARP?
The bailout for many of the largest “capitalist” entities in the U.S.?

Many contemporary beliefs & followers of “socialism” are a good example.
While no single definition encapsulates the many types of socialism, social ownership is the one common element.
Yet it would be impossible to maintain true, equitable and widespread social ownership, as administrative duties & functions would have to fall under some form of leadership (central body).
A large collective of people will NEVER agree on everything, likely not even on many things, thus some form of system has to be established to maintain & direct & mediate that inevitable disagreement.
And you need some form of administration (central body) to try to ensure equitable handling & distribution of those things that fall under that social ownership.
And whenever you have any kind central body controlling things like wealth & assets (even when socially owned), you will always have corrupt people seeking to control that central body, for personal & selfish gains.

Thus one main tenet of socialism is centralized control & planning.
And that centralized control can come from Bureaucrats, or Agencies, or even Corporate Lords.
The latter of which is exactly what is happening today.

A mere 60 Big Asset Management firms & Big Banks now control OVER $100 TRILLION in global assets.
Mostly in the form of investment funds.
Like a centrally planned body.
And much of the money from those investment funds come from everyday Jane & Joe Sixpacks.
But most of the wealth generated from those funds go to the CARTEL of billionaires whom truly control those funds.

So, “socialist” systems can be run by the ultra-wealth, for the main benefit of the ultra wealthy.
Consider that there are wealth-hoarding billionaire classes in “communist” China, in “socialist” Russia, in “socialist” Vietnam, in “socialist” North Korea, etc.
There are distinct different classes in “socialist” Cuba.

In the U.S., the Federal Reserve is the largest central planning authority on the planet.
It’s stated mission is to protect the overall health of the U.S. economic & financial system.
But it is largely owned by the largest national banks in the country.
Whom often sit on, and/or maintain effective influence & control over its Boards.

And that Federal Reserve, with its vast control over massive sums of wealth, has become one of the most corrupt entities on the planet.

So yes, there really is no more “left” and “right” politics, in practice, in politics.

Trudeau is considered a follower of the “Liberal” party.
The Latin root of Liberal being liberalis, literally “of freedom, pertaining to or befitting a free person,”; and from liber “free, unrestricted, unimpeded; unbridled, unchecked, licentious.”

And yet here we are, a great icon of Western “Liberalism” imposing draconian restrictions upon supposedly “Free” citizens.

“Liberalism” has largely been reduced to mere phraseology.

“Thus one main tenet of socialism is centralized control & planning.”

No. The main tenet of socialism is the absence of private property/wage labour and exploitation of man by man.

You can have market planned socialism or centrally planned socialism. Planning is always necessary under any system, the question is how and for what purpose.

Philo Eleutheria
Philo Eleutheria
Feb 20, 2022 12:37 AM

You contradicted yourself.
You say “no” to the statement “Thus one main tenet of socialism is centralized control & planning.”,
But then state “Planning is always necessary under any system”

If “Planning is always necessary under any system”, then planning is necessary under “socialism”.
You cannot possibly have planning without some structure to that planing.
And you cannot account for the needs of all members of a social structure without central planning of that social structure.

You can’t it both ways.

The concept of the “free market” also includes elements of planning, but one that is not centrally planned/coordinate.
Planning is done on individual levels, and is therefore subject to the lack of accounting for the needs of all members of a social structure.

It is impossible for a “socialist” system to operate without central planning.
Otherwise you have several different problematic scenarios:
• More goods/services produced than are necessary for a society.
• Too few goods/services produced than are necessary for a society.
• Too few goods/services produced to maintain the needs of a society.
• Certain segments of a society that receive more than other.
• Growth of competition, but in only certain sectors (different industrial & economic sectors will never all be equal with one another, thus there must exist some method to meet the inequitable demand, and provide adequate levels of supply), thus either/or/and more use, more waste, more excess, more scarcity, etc.

Plus, the “needs” of one person are not the same as the needs of another.
And when you don’t have equality of all facets of different lives, you cannot guarantee equality of resources provided.
Thus people will always think others are getting more than they.
And therefore disagreements over value of good/services received will always be a divisive issue.

A group of people will NEVER always agree on everything.
Thus some method of organization must be instilled to resolve disputes.

Just because you foolishly believe “You can have market planned socialism”, doesn’t make that statement true.
Because you can’t.
All you end up with is a corrupted version (mere phraseology) of the ideology.

The former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia is often widely considered to have been a form of market-based socialism, and yet there was state oversight dictating wage bills and the hiring and firing of managers.

In practice, the appointment of managers and the strategic policies of composite organizations were, depending on their size and importance, often subject to political and personal influence-peddling.

In that version of “giving all employees the same access to decision-making”, a “basic organisation of associated labor were also applied to public services, including health and education. The basic organizations were usually made up of no more than a few dozen people and had their own workers’ councils, whose assent was needed for strategic decisions and appointment of managers in enterprises or public institutions.”
I.e. – Central planning.

Unemployment was also a chronic problem for Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, and it held amongst the highest levels of unemployment in Europe.

In fact, every single supposed example of “free market socialism” has had “leaders”, and/or central authority.
I.e. central control & planning.
Those “leaders” and/or central authorities don’t exist just for fun.

You will never get a large group of people to all agree on everything.
And that is the largest problem with the theory of both “socialism” and supposed “market socialism” (which just doesn’t exist).

You need to work harder to tear yourself from unrealistic idealism, and learn to deal with realism.

Interestingly, those most often crying for “absence of private property/wage labour and exploitation of man by man.”, are often those most apt to acquire more for themselves, via exploitation of others.

Let me ask you, are you freely giving away all your excess money to those without clean water, or adequate shelter, or enough food, or clean clothing?
Are you willing to do without a computer, cell phone, car, home, pricey clothes, trendy shoes, television, running water, and other “excesses” (relative to those with next to nothing) for the sake of others?

If you say “yes” you’re a total hypocrite.

There are some 600-700 million people living in extreme poverty.
So, put your money where your mouth is, be willing to live an impoverished life to give those with less, more.

I challenge you to start a business, hire numerous employees, and effectively run & manage that business giving every single one of those employees absolute equal roles, status, pay, participation, etc.
Do it, and prove me wrong.
There will always be disagreements.

It always amuses me when people claim that humans can always engage in fair treatment of all other humans, but then simultaneously complain of certain humans taking advantage of other humans.
That is exactly why central planning is an absolute requirement of any social structure that claims to meet the needs of all members of that society.
Certain people will always look to get more for themselves.
But most people can never recognize that greed & tendencies for exploitation in themselves.

Guaranteed some of what you own, wear, eat & such are produced by those with far less than you.
Thus you are exploiting those other people.

JUDGE THYSELF, FIRST!

You should not be talking about things you don’t know. Yugoslavia was the best country in the world. I was born there. I have lived half of my life in the self governing socialism, and the other half in the turbo capitalism. To understand how a socialist country works, you need to live and work there for at least a couple of years. Why don’t you give us an analysis of the socio economic system of the country you live in? What is so great about it?

Examples of supposed “free market socialism”:

Goulash communism in Hungary, led by János Kádár.
János Kádár. had to control the state and force the peace. He did this through violence, he had his government imprison or execute protesters. There were even mass shootings of people, in the end he was responsible for hundred of deaths. After having quelled the uprising Kádár and his government realised they had to create a major break from the past regime of Mátyás Rákosi. Their goal was a “soft dictatorship”.

The government created the Central Committee, which allowed (i.e. “permitted”) small numbers of “private” businesses.
Which is exactly what give rise to cronyism & corporate corruption.

Hence hardly free of exploitation.

Kádár’s legacy remains disputed in Hungary. Supporters of Kádár argue that the Kádár era was one of peace and stability with widespread job security and robust social protections for average people. Others argue that although Kádár increased the standard of living for Hungarians, and instituted broad liberalization, the country was still fundamentally a dictatorship and a Soviet satellite state.
Polls indicate that nostalgia for the Kádár era remains widespread in Hungary. According to a 2020 poll carried out by Policy Solutions in Hungary, 54 percent of Hungarians believe most people had a better life under Kádár, compared to 31 percent who say life for most people was worse under Kádár.

And though this poll shows more support for Kádár’s policies & results than not, it demonstrates that a group of people will NEVER agree.
Thus trying to account for & maintain for the need of every member of an entire society, without massive central control & planning, is absolutely impossible.

Kádár was known for his simple and modest lifestyle and avoided the self-indulgence persona of other Communist leaders.
But Kádár was known as an avid hunter (hunting for sport used to be an aristocratic hobby before 1945 in Hungary and this pattern continued during the Communist era when it became a cherished pastime and occasion for the new elite to informally socialize and to get drunk), and was a member of an exclusive hunting association made up by Party leaders and other dignitaries.

Hardly a sign of equality.

Titoism in Yugoslavia was a political philosophy most closely associated with Josip Broz Tito.
The League of Communists of Yugoslavia retained solid power; the legislature did little more than rubber stamp decisions already made by the LCY’s Politburo. The secret police, the State Security Administration (UDBA), while operating with considerably more restraint than its counterparts in the rest of Eastern Europe, was nonetheless a feared tool of government control.

The media remained under restrictions that were onerous by Western standards.

As the President, Tito had access to extensive (state-owned) property associated with the office and maintained a lavish lifestyle.

Thus one main tenet of socialism is centralized control & planning.. In the U.S., the Federal Reserve is the largest central planning authority on the planet.

And your point is?

I do not believe that Harper was a globalist puppet. In fact,the globalists wanted to get rid of him, and they succeeded. The G20 was a unique event in Canada. Police were there for security so the event would not be sabotaged. There were protestors, but it was never clear what they were protesting. The tradigtional understanding of left/ right does not apply currently. If anything we are being set up for communist- style totalitarianism, which has traditionally been left. Really, the rich have always run the show.

The major problem here is a man who has pluto opposite his mars has been given the position of control of Canada…a short version reads …the attainment of ones own objectives by means of ruthlessness to others, brutality, cruelty,,,a person who wants to use force or compulsion at every occasion…mars is the ruling planet of the chart…this this is a major factor in his life…,

the only joy here is he has interconnected strongly with this ….a hard working person, the ability to work till collapse or complete breakdown. Injury, accident, violent measures, an upset or shock caused through the intervention of Higher Power…

People who use horses to do their dirty work are not only the ultimate chicken shits, but quite frankly they are abusive to the animals as well. I would like to say get your ass off the horse and do your own damned dirty work down here on the ground with the rest of us if you’re so proud of what you’re doing.

At least they use their own children and not borrow them from the neighbours.
Imagine the faux outrage then.

At least they teach their own children what democracy in Canada looks like.

And is not our dear leader with his fellow freedom fighters ever consistent?

After all, didn’t they condemn the CIA-sponsored activists in Hongkong, who with bow and arrow threatened folks, injured policemen, broke a lot of glass, and set fire to a few things? Of course all unintentionally and in good humour.
Or didn’t they really harshly condemn those BLM and Antifa peaceful demonstrators who without meaning to set a few businesses and vehicles on fire, hurt a few cops, and threatened, unintentionally, of course, uninvolved citizens?

You have convinced me – and JT has put the fear of – well, something into me. I have managed to withdraw my ill-conceived donation to the evil truckers. What was I thinking.

Apparently there are “exemptions” to the Emergencies Act which could protect me from the bank-freezing, rights-zapping drubbing I so dearly deserve.

One exemption is being  “an Indian under the Indian Act” – actual wording of the law (seems ‘unwoke’).  Or a “refugee”. But sadly I am still not fully ‘woke’ and cannot express these intersections using IM (Intersectional Meditation).

But I still may be OK. If I can convince JT that I am “a person [acting] in the national interest” I get an out. So I applied to become an anti-/trucker/vaxxer operative for CSIS (Canadian Security Intelligence Service) to act in the “national interest”. They say I will receive my instruction manuals in a few days. Life just got very interesting for me.

Thank you, Justin !

BREAKING NEWS

The Emergencies Act debate has been delayed until tomorrow “due to safety concerns”. One of the bouncy castles had sprung a leak.

” Some of the demonstrators in the so-called ‘Freedom Convoy’ blockade in downtown Ottawa…” They like the phrase “so-called”, always thrown in. Sort of a bitchy-flavour propaganda. They could have just said “the blockade”. I think we would have gotten the point.

“…have been arrested with body armour and smoke grenades as a police push to end the convoy encounters what officials describe as ‘assaultive’ and ‘aggressive’ behaviour by the crowds.” Well, yeah, just looking at my CSIS manual in the ‘A$!ho!∃ Provocateur’ section, that’s SOP.

“One dog was abandoned in a vehicle on Wellington Street, according to police. The dog was brought to a warm place.And other of the so-called freedom demonstrators were seen kicking dogs ! And stealing candy from kids the bouncy castle !

Children remain among those in the crowd, despite repeated warnings from both police and the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa to take them out of the area.”
Stupid so-called kiddie freedom protesters ! Freeze their accounts !

” In two additional tweets, police said that a detonation of some kind of smoke device that was visible to crews on the ground was caused by demonstrators, not officers. 😇  😗 

Thanks, Global so-called News for my laugh of the day. So aptly named as your material comes from right between the globes of your puppet masters.

The Psychology of Scapegoating

The ego defense of displacement plays an important role in scapegoating, in which uncomfortable feelings such as anger, frustration, envy, guilt, shame, and insecurity are displaced or redirected onto another, often more vulnerable, person or group. The scapegoats—outsiders, immigrants, minorities, ‘deviants’—are then persecuted, enabling the scapegoaters to discharge and distract from their negative feelings, which are replaced or overtaken by a crude but consoling sense of affirmation and self-righteous indignation.
The creation of a villain necessarily implies that of a hero, even if both are purely fictional.
Sometimes it is the villain, or villains, who are in need of an even greater villain (Trudeau for example).

Especially in a time of crisis, unscrupulous leaders and politicians can cynically exploit the ancient and deep-rooted impulse to scapegoat to deflect and distract from their own inadequacies and evade, or seek to evade, their legitimate burden of blame and responsibility.

Chrystia Freeland and fellow Canadian Mark Carney are high-ranking members of the executive committee of The World Economic Forum. They are right at the top of the food chain of this supranational cartel.

Canada is a test case to see how far they can go in their push for unalloyed fascism. A brutal experiment with militarized violence. If they can get away with it in Canada, they’ll try it elsewhere.

Death of the reserve fiat currency in September 2019 prompted the globalists to roll out their digital ID and virtual money plans. There is no virus and never was.

They are blowing up the world with a sovereign debt problem that they created.

The “war against a virus” is and always was a “war against citizens”. Same as the “war on drugs” and the “war on terror”.

The pandemic hoax is and always was a pretext to wage a domestic war against The People.

In 2019 more than 1,000 leaders in their field from 100 countries attended the WEF.From “capitalists” to “communists” (China) to “socialists” (Russia, Vietnam), it is a global CARTEL of Tyranny.
And goes way beyond the WEF.Each of these Globalist entities & organizations often share Very close ties & intimate, closely-connected relationships.Klaus Schwab is a former member of the steering committee of the Bilderberg Group, for example. Many of the WEF corporate partners are members of numerous other Globalist entities & organizations.
The World Bank maintains close ties to the WEF.
As does the IMF.

Many of the member-countries of the WEF are witnessing a vast rise of wealth & income inequality.
With most of those countries experiencing similar Tyranny, via their respective groups of neo-feudal Lords.

The global CARTEL of neo-feudal Lords have this whole thing all mapped & planned.
They now possess multiple fronts, from most every single direction.
They control the largest Big Asset Management firms & Big Banks that control the largest “competing” corporations, in most every single industry, in most every continent.
The TOP 60 of these holding combined assets in excess of OVER $100 TRILLION.
And as such maintain massive & effective control over entire economies.
And as such maintain massive influence & control over politics & governance, of “partisan” parties of both the “left” and “right”.

Whilst many of the “common” citizens across much of the world are increasingly being led towards greater divisions amongst themselves, this CARTEL of neo-feudal Lords are strengthening their own unity, and power.

A succesfull one so far.
Convid is still on the front pages, the country has bowed and very few protest ( mainly in the north) inspite of hard restrictions. The need to protect the Vatican state and the US nukes may have something to do with it.
They declared emergency state in January 2020 and it’s still going on.
It seems to me that Italy has been assigned a specific role in what is coming to Europe,a dark plan that will become visible very soon.

I hope these police officers realize that they’re aiding a genocide and when the truth and justice will eventually prevail, they will not be able to defend themselves with “I was doing my job”.

Sorry, but wishful thinking doesn’t cut it.

Entertaining the idea that Trudeau will ever see a letter from the general public is a ridiculous waste of time.
He has squads of people who are paid for the specific task of protecting him from anything to do with us hordes of the unwashed, and if Trudeau will never read this letter, neither will I.

The truckers have the right idea. They did something which got Trudeau’s attention.
Nothing is more important than making him run away again.
After all, most of us learnt in primary school that arrogant twerps can be made to run away.

Mr Trudeau is not running away this time. He is taking action. But whatever he does, just as whatever the truckers do, takes a back seat to what the general public does.

Trudeau must believe when push comes to shove the public will support him and not the truckers – especially when the grocery shelves really start to empty and the truckers are scapegoated by the media as the sole cause.
