‘Orwell’s Warning’

March 18, 2018

“Reading Orwell’s views on language, it’s no wonder that the perversion of language for nefarious political ends features so prominently in Orwell’s dual masterpieces, ‘Animal Farm’ and ‘Nineteen-Eighty-Four’. In Orwell’s imagined totalitarian worlds, tyrants control thought by debasing language: i.e., “the Party” creates “Newspeak” (in ‘Nineteen-Eighty-Four’) to make “thoughtcrime” impossible by eradicating the vocabulary of dissent. Without the words for freedom (he argues), the idea of it ceases to exist, and people will no longer yearn for it…

“Most anyone who graduated from an American high school recalls

War is Peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength”.

“It’s usually read as a Cold-War warning against Soviet-style socialism and its attendant mind-bending fabrications. But we’ve forgotten Orwell’s broader message:
demagogues erode democracy insidiously and incrementally, camouflaging their designs and outright lies with lofty abstractions, meaningless slogans oft-repeated, and a euphemistic inexactness of language. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Russia’s Politicized Science Revival’

January 23, 2018

“During the late 1940s and 1950s, a pseudo-scientific concept based on Marxist-Leninist ideology became internationally known as ‘Lysenkoism’. Lysenkoism was a neo-Lamarckian idea, claiming that in crop plants, such as wheat, environmental influences are heritable via all cells of the organism.

Lysenkoism was applied to agriculture during the Stalin era with disastrous consequences. Despite the triumphs of modern genetics, and the disproval of Lysenkoism, recent years have seen a ‘re-thinking’ of this doctrine in Russia. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Lest We Forget’

January 5, 2018

How about we have an official day of remembrance for those 2 Canadian soldiers (Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent and Cpl. Nathan Cirillo) murdered on Canadian soil by Mohammedan fanatics?

“One of Canada’s most prominent Muslim groups is asking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to designate the anniversary of the 2017 Quebec City mosque shooting as an official day of remembrance.

‘Social Justice’ Killing Education’

December 27, 2017

“Canada’s biggest school system has some problems. Math scores are flat or in decline. Too many kids aren’t doing well in school, and too many of them are ‘visible minorities’. Something must be done. What is it?

The answer is to make ‘social justice’ and “equity” the main focus of education in Ontario. Every school board, school and classroom will be re-engineered to root out {only ‘white’} ‘racism’ and ‘discrimination’. School boards will collect data on race and ethnicity to ensure that ‘equity’ {‘race’} is reflected in everything from staff hires to student suspensions. Teaching materials will be revised to be less ‘Eurocentric’ {‘intellectual’}. Children will be taught the {one-sided, Leftist} history of ‘colonialism’, residential schools and ‘oppression’. Kids in the “applied” stream will be placed in the academic stream, because streaming is ‘discriminatory’. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Vandals Disrespecting Canada’

November 24, 2017

‘Political Correctness and Control Freaks Are Ruining Halloween’

November 3, 2017

“Canadian schools are wrestling with how to guide students and parents towards Halloween costumes that aren’t considered ‘offensive’ or ‘culturally insensitive’.

“In early October, a Canadian school board emailed a checklist “Is my costume appropriate?” to parents planning their children’s Halloween costumes. Fuschia Martians, mythical creatures, and animals got the all clear.

“On the what not to wear list for 31 October — cowboy and Indian costumes, slaves, terrorist, gypsy, Rastafarian and “urban ghetto resident”. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Hollywood Perversions’

October 23, 2017

“Hollywood’s elite likes to portray themselves as ‘progressive’ crusaders who are morally superior to the masses that make them rich.

“Anyone unfortunate enough to catch the preachy performances at the ‘Oscars’ and ‘Emmys’ could attest to the entertainment industry’s Trump-obsessed self-righteousness.

“But the reality is that behind the holier-than-thou grandstanding is an industry as toxic as a sewage treatment plant.

‘Real Estate and Money Laundering in Canada’

September 30, 2017

When you don’t monitor money laundering {See below} – and when money is constantly crossing borders – this is one of the consequences:

“According to the ‘Royal Bank of Canada’, Canada’s housing affordability is worse today than at any time since 1990. Housing affordability has now declined for eight straight quarters.

The affordability crisis has slammed Toronto especially hard, with housing now less affordable in that city than at any time ever previously recorded. Efforts by the Ontario government to cool off the housing market have not shown immediate results when it comes to housing prices in the province.

“Despite Toronto’s troubles, Vancouver remains the most unaffordable place to buy a home in Canada…”
