Justin Trudeau World Historical Leader

I know, it’s all just ancient history  by now. But for me, it is the old country, so that watching it all unfold is beyond incredible. And to understand all this more deeply, there is Jordan Peterson to help others make sense of what is going on: Dr. Jordan Peterson Tells Fellow Canadians They Have No Idea What Was Done to Them.

  1. Safety? Punishment? What’s the rationale, even hypothetically? The Emergency Act was reserved for events that threatened the very existence of the state. If you think that current events qualify, think again.

    The Emergency Act was written with a lot of safeguards in place, and important one of them was the obligation of the government to pay compensation. This meant that it could not be used punitively; if something is done to one by an order of the Emergency Act, one is entitled to compensation, even if one deserved it. One simply complies now, during the emergency, and claims later. Individuals who deserve punishment must ultimately be pursued under other laws.

    This is why the debanking surprised me; those that cheered it on seemed to have no concept that these the debanked could be entitled to compensation later on.

  2. …but sadly, I think compensation would be paid, not to the victims but to the perpetrators.

    That is, if the banks lost money (as they certainly have) as a consequence of following a government order to freeze lawful bank accounts, the banks will be compensated.

    If, however, they’ve stolen your money, it stays stolen.

    Should have known no law would favour the people over the government.

    I liked the line about “loving his people”.

    C.S. Lewis comes to mind.

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive..” (etc)

  4. While being a little off-topic, but this has everything to do with what’s going on today. While Putin may be everything the media portray him to be, is Trudeau any better? Are any of the Western governments and their Presidents/Prime Ministers/Chancellors and the oligarchs of the likes of the WEF any better than Putin when it comes to how they treat their citizens? Which leaders have been treating their citizens far more poorly for the last two years and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future?

  5. “how they treat their citizens”
    I’m sorry to say, I agree completely. The behaviour of the Australian, Canadian, and to a lesser extent, the American politicians has been completely despicable. The only thing worse was that the populations did nothing.

    Daniel Andrews has killed more citizens in Victoria than Putin has in Ukraine. Almost certainly more businesses also. Not as dramatic but just as dead.

    The population tried quite hard, short of resorting to violence.

    They were up against an almost united force of oppression/repression/propaganda: leaders, elites, courts, media and enforced by state militias (I’m damned if I’m going to call what they were, in many States, “police forces”).

    Sadly, as is generally the case, only ~15% of the population are able to stand up through and against concerted and unified psychological intimidation.

  8. Jordan has provided wonderful commentary throughout the Trucker saga. Once again, he is a source of wisdom and commitment.

    I note that he is going to undertake another tour of Australia in November, I think. My husband and I saw him during his first tour of Australia a few years back. He speaks to something deep inside you. I am wondering if I should take my grandson to hear him speak, as his wisdom is particularly relevant to today’s besieged young men.

    On another note, I am concerned about his health. He was very close to death a couple of years back, due no doubt to his ridiculous work schedule and the curious diet that he followed. He seems to have recovered, but looks a little haggard.

  9. Vicki..
    Peterson’s “curious” diet has been of considerable help to him, as it has to a growing number of people, including myself.
    One of the commonly reported benefits is improved mental health.

    It’s still an emerging field with a great deal of research yet to be done, however this link may be of interest. Note that the author is a trained and practicing psychiatrist with personal experience.

    It may not be your cup of tea, but I’d encourage anyone to try it for themselves. 30 days of eating this way will do you no harm, and possibly show some benefits.

    Your body, your choice..

    Peter.

  10. Keto style diets have become recognised of late for the benefits they provide. I’ve always ignored the food pyramid and eaten a Keto style diet (subconsciously), but lately done so deliberately by not eating as much bread and pasta as I used to eat. It’s had quite a rapid effect in a relatively short time.

    I guess I’ve always been a contrarian and, as soon as a bunch of dogooder experts insist on something, I do the opposite. A bit like with the vaccines.

    I have attended Dr Peterson’s talk on each occasion that he has been to Australia – I don’t know the age of your grandson but on his first tour I attended his lecture at the Willoughby Entertainment Centre – when I went to take my seat there was a young student sitting in my seat, he was there with his mates, we got chatting and apparently they were early, a day early their session was the next night, they were in year 11 and attending a local private school obviously very keen they were full of admiration for Dr Peterson’s message – clean your room – start with the small things that you can control.

  12. “Dr Peterson’s message – clean your room…”

    Yes, certainly applies to current political circumstances like Ukraine, does it not?

    That and “Find the heaviest thing you can carry, and carry it”.
    People respond to challenges – if they do well, they feel proud of themselves. By making sure what you do, while hard, is within your capabilities, you increase your confidence and self opinion, making you more inclined to try even harder. Done carefully, it means you won’t fail early or badly and be discouraged, but rather when you do fail you will know that you just aimed a little bit to high, accept it as finding your own limits, and try again.

    I also find Peterson’s intellectual depth and honesty refreshing. It doesn’t happen often, but if someone points out something he hasn’t considered, he will say “Well, that’s a good point – I hadn’t thought of that, so maybe I’m wrong. I’ll have to think about it.”
