The Judiciary . . . from the Justice of the Peace all the way to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court is killing the FREEDOMS that allowed our countries (the USA and Canada) to become the great nations they once were.
On December 6, 2012 (last week), the Supreme Court of Canada ruled AGAINST me in a critical Freedom of Expression case, that has “forever” changed the nature of Canada.
I will write more about this in my next editorial . . . and why I think, in a bizarre way, how this could be a VERY GOOD THING for FREEDOM in Canada and the United States of America.
SWIMMING AGAINST THE CURRENT IS WHAT PEOPLE OF CHARACTER DO:
BECAUSE OF MY LAST EDITORIAL (December 5, 2012 PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE), the amount of feedback I received was outstanding. And so were the number of people who decided to remove themselves from my “automatic email editorial advisory”, because they thought that what I wrote was too aggressive.
BUT . . . for every person who removed himself/herself, three new people signed-on.
One visitor to Galganov.com – who said in his email to me, that he had in the past contributed to my efforts, for which I will take his word and say thank you . . . suggested that I “calm down” and stop being so dour.
So, I thought about his suggestion, and came away feeling that had MORE people been as aggressive as most of my editorials are, perhaps we wouldn’t be in the mess we’re in today.
I also reread my last editorial to see if I was indeed too aggressive, and agreed somewhat with the writer, that my words were full of doom and gloom, and were anything but happy and uplifting.
BUT – AGGRESSIVE OR NOT – MY WORDS AND FACTS WERE ALL TRUE . . . every word and every statement that I wrote were unassailable.
So I ask all of you what is more important . . . ?
Is it more important to read a load of feel good “stuff” that ignores the REAL perils? Or . . . is it more important to read the unvarnished TRUTH?
THE UGLY TRUTH:
Throughout history, we’ve seen that ignoring the past has been a guarantee to repeat it in the future. Not that long ago, just in the 1930’s, the world witnessed the rebirth of evil personified.
We witnessed the growth of National Socialism through the NAZI Party. And we saw the rise of Communism throughout Eastern Europe and beyond.
We stood witness to determined leaders prepared to do whatever they wanted to do, regardless of the depravity of their cause, as the rest of the world followed cowards, appeasers, and elitist “philosopher kings” who hoped for the best in the face of the worst.
Some BRAVE men and women stood-up, spoke-out, and endured ridicule, character assignation, and demagoguery, by those who practiced so-called “moderation” while leading the world to the gates of HELL.
Winston Churchill was branded a WAR MONGER, as Neville Chamberlain and other appeasers FORCED Czechoslovakia to surrender the Sudetenland to the Nazis on May 29, 1938 (Munich Conference), in the hope that feeding the BEAST with the people of another nation would keep the BEAST from their own door.
BUT JUST LESS THAN ONE YEAR LATER . . . almost to the day (September 3, 1939), Germany and much of the world were at war.
THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT MY RHETORIC . . . my words and how I choose to use them are indeed aggressive and IN-YOUR-FACE . . . but so are the challenges and threats of these times.
So . . . instead of criticizing someone like me for standing-up and speaking-out, either point-out where I am wrong . . . or start standing-up and speaking-out yourself.
OR . . . Hope for the best where history is telling us to prepare for the worst.
In a speech delivered by US Senator Barry Goldwater; he said it as succinctly as possible.
“Extremism In The Defense Of Liberty Is No Vice. And Moderation In The Pursuit Of Justice Is No Virtue”
