A crisis of parliamentary de-mock-racy

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men should do nothing.”
                                                        - Edmund Burke

Well here we are Canadians with the "fair election fraud" act enshrined in law. Were you really expecting anything different?

When I wrote about election fraud back in 2012 my suggestion of a possible action by the people of Canada may have seemed extreme but here we are in 2014 and what's changed? What confidence has been restored in the election? Can anyone give me one good reason why any Canadian should even bother voting now? If you knowingly know the game is rigged against you, and now even enshrined in law against you, you're an idiot if you still play. We're beyond a crisis of accountability into a full blown crisis of parliamentary democracy (or what's left of it).

Is it time to riot yet? Or should we wait for our housing bubble to collapse on us first? Is it time to riot yet? Or should we wait until every job is replaced by temporary foreign workers? Is it time to riot yet? Or should we wait until whatever cause you believe in is aligned with "the terrorists"? Where a new immigration law says your citizenship can now be revoked? Hmm? Which law is going to be the last straw for you? Which freedom that you cherish will have to be taken before you act?

I know what you're thinking: "he's gone crazy!", "he's calling for riots", "he's an extremist", but we've already had anti-protest laws. We have a "mask ban". We've had a preview of crowd control to come and foreign military snipers targeting our First Nations.

Petitions? Really? Like "oh, if the government knew I didn't like this bill then maybe they won't pass it?". Get over yourselves. Your currency is constantly deployed against you in military grade propaganda campaigns to convince you your concerns don't matter. All I see of a population holding out for 2015 to engage in their fair election fraud is good men doing nothing.

There is no Canada, only Zuul.

  1. Richard, we have to find something around which dissent will coalesce. I had hoped that it would involve something like a grand showdown of civil disobedience to obstruct the Northern Gateway. When it comes to dissent I wish I didn't feel so undermined by the Libs and New Dems and their flocks of toothless sheeple.

  2. Its not just the parties. Its the entire illusion of democracy which the impotent opposition reinforces.

    A real opposition would be doing a hell of a lot more than creating petitions. However, its up to the people to realize that. Every day that passes an illegitimate government is implementing a global corporate agenda and selling control and sovereignty we can never get back. What exactly do people think will be left for the opposition to "govern" even if we do get Harper out? The next govt even with the best intentions will find everything wrapped in red tape and the decisions already made for them in the texts of the free trade deals were not allowed to read.

    Civil disobedience should have happened the moment "Pierre Poutine" became a national joke. The opposition parties should have rejected all legislation until that matter was cleared. We didnt and they didnt and so here we are. Riots may sound extreme but I think by the time people realize theyre needed even more extreme measures will be needed.

    Canada has never faced domestic tyranny. We dont know what it looks like beyond propaganda reports on other countries. People elsewhere are rioting for far less. Privatization of state/crown corps, antiprotest laws, mask bans, surveillance, banker bailouts. The problem in Canada is since weve never seen it for ourselves we dont know any better. Tyranny is here, right now, and were allowing it to happen while we play de-mock-racy.
