What is “Colonialism?”

Language has become a weapon. For many people this is puzzling. Isn’t language supposed to help us communicate? Shouldn’t it be clear, and an aid to understanding? Isn’t language beautiful, and hasn’t it inspired the people who came before us? Yes. All true. Language should be all these things and has been in the past, but nowadays it has been twisted into a political weapon. The far left and radical liberal progressives have taken over our language, and they are using buzz words and labels to restructure society and silence people.  One of the most effective words they are using is […]

What the Trucker Convoy Taught Us

by Perry D Foster
It has been a while now since the Trucker’s Freedom Convoy was broken up and its participants either dispersed or punished. It has also been a while since the disgraceful example of freezing people’s bank accounts took place. I say a while since, in the world of politics and the media, a month is an eternity. So what have we learned?  First the Good News… We have learned that Canadians are braver than we thought. They shook off their lethargy, protested, and showed the world they were willing to go to the mat for something they believed in. That is […]

Conservaphobia

by Perry D Foster
A new kind of bigotry has entered the world. For the purpose of this post I’ll call it “Conservaphobia.” It’s the only term I can think of to describe it. Like all prejudices, it is illogical, intolerant and contemptible. The suffix “phobia” denotes an irrational fear, but Conservaphobia is more than that. It is a deep seated irrational hatred of Conservatives. The far left and the “woke” mob hate Conservatives because we exist and because we disagree with progressive left wing thinking. That’s all the reason they need.  Pathological and Unreasonable Conservaphobia is different from other prejudices. There is a […]

The R Word

by Perry D Foster
Some of us remember a time when people used the “N” word. Today everyone understands it to be a racial slur. Respectful people don’t use it. If you do, you run the risk of being suspended, fired or worse. Just ask Wendy Mesley of the C.B.C. who retired early because she referenced the word during a meeting. She didn’t call anyone the N word mind you, she just mentioned it. Using the N word can end your career and your personal and professional life. Now a different word has taken its place: the R word. A New Linguistic Bomb I’m talking […]

Farenheit 451?

by Perry D Foster
A lot of us are old enough to remember the book Fahrenheit 451. Written by Ray Bradbury, it was set in the future when firemen did not put out fires but instead started them. It was their job to burn books, all of which were forbidden. Like the book 1984, it was a warning. Bradbury, like Orwell, was trying to tell us that the potential for our freedoms disappearing was very real. But it was science fiction, right? It could never happen here, right? That’s what we told ourselves, but we were wrong. The New Book Burning There are no […]

What is Critical Race Theory?

by Perry D Foster
Western society is going through fundamental and far reaching changes and we have passed the time when we can deny it. For many people the idea of transformation is exciting. To them it means better things on the way and a better world coming. But this is a naïve and dangerous view. Not all doctrines or changes are good. In fact, many of them are dangerous, even evil.  Critical Race Theory One example is Critical Race Theory. If you’re not familiar with it you soon will be, and you’ll be shocked. It is spreading through our institutions at record speed. Critical […]
