article imageOp-Ed: Harper pursues Culture War through Orwell playbook — Bill C-26

By Raymond Samuels     Apr 26, 2012 in World
Ottawa - Bill C-26, the Citizen’s Arrest and Self-Defence Act, is in the House for third reading in the House of Commons. Bill architects seek to transform the existing Criminal Code sections dealing with the rights of self-defence and citizen’s arrest.
Quebec during the 1960’s experienced the Quiet Revolution. In 2012, it is apparent the we Canadians are experiencing another “Quiet Revolution“. This new “Quiet Revolution” comes courtesy of Bill C-26, and a variety of other new “edicts” which are being quietly pushed by Stephen Harper’s government.
Quebec’s Quiet Revolution was inspired by the people. In contrast Bill C-26 is the Quiet Revolution of an apparent elite-driven control system, which is pursing an apparent contrived “Culture War” against our very soul of who we are, as a nation.
As a nation, are we to continue to embrace the “rule of law” and the affirmation and due process of the rights and freedoms of all Canadians? Or, do we, as Canadians further give up our rights and freedoms?
The Ottawa Citizen in its 25 April 2012 edition reports that Elizabeth May, who leads the Green Party of Canada, is the only MP to oppose Bill C-26.
So, what is Bill C-26? This Bill runs under the title of the “Citizen’s Arrest and Self-Defence Act“. The term “Self-Defence” was used to encourage Canadians to think that this Bill was designed for our protection. However, that could not be further than the truth. “Self-Defence” is an apparent marketing ploy which was taken from the pages of George Orwell’s newspeak in the book entitled Nineteen Eighty-Four (first published in 1949).
Wikipedia elaborates:
Newspeak is a fictional language in George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. In the novel, it refers to the deliberately impoverished language promoted by the state. Orwell included an essay about it in the form of an appendix in which the basic principles of the language are explained. Newspeak is closely based on English but has a greatly reduced and simplified vocabulary and grammar. This suits the totalitarian regime of the Party, whose aim is to make any alternative thinking—"thoughtcrime", or "crimethink" in the newest edition of Newspeak…
The apparent agenda of this Bill is to move law enforcement in Canada away from trained and qualified police officers, and away from the due process of law. Bill C-26 architects envision “Dog the Bounty Hunter” wannabee type mercenaries becoming “law enforcers” who are paid to serve fascistic “private-public partnerships“.
Bill C-26 will empower Big Businesses in Canada to form their own security details, to arrest and detain protesters or anyone else -- at will.
“Troublemakers” labelled as “terrorists” can then be detained indefinitely in private run jails and detention centres created by Bill C-26 sponsors.
The anti-democratic agenda of Bill C-26 type legislation is poignantly evident in Iraq, where private security firms have created insecurity and havoc.
In Iraq, democracy exists in name only. Iraqis live in a state of fear that is much greater than the Saddam Hussein regime. There is no freedom of the press or any substantive freedoms. Democratic protests have been effectively outlawed in Iraq. Iraq is effectively an Orwellian dystopia.
Under the U.S. sponsored “liberation”, poverty has skyrocketed in Iraq to levels unheard of during the Saddam Hussein regime. Through Bill C-26 type legislation in Iraq, any group or individual who protest that reality will be subject to arrest and detention.
Is that the kind of Canada we want to live in?
Bill C-26 is an attempt by its sponsors to create a climate of total fear among any individual or groups that seeks to oppose “authority” or more precisely using an ancient Pagan Gnostic vernacular: “the archons”.
The ancient Pagan Gnostics referred to the archons as a lower dimensional consciousness that sought to infiltrate the highest levels of authority structures on Earth, in order to perpetrate a regressive and oppressive agenda.
In the view of the Pagan Gnostics, the archons represented an alien shadow, which is driven by the insatiable pursuit of power and control over other life forms. Do Pagan Gnostic insights shed further light on Bill C-26?
Our Constitution Act, 1867, specifically mentions the founding of our society based upon “Peace Order and Good Government”. Whereas America was born out of a culture of “cowboys and Indians”, our higher quality-of-life in Canada had developed thanks to our respect for “Peace Order and Good Government”. As Elizabeth May points out, Bill C-26, represents a further destruction of the Canadian identity under a prevailing U.S. Homeland Security ethos, which should be kept south of the border..
Elizabeth May elaborates:
“My question is on this specific point. The concern shared by many, but particularly put forward to committee from the Canadian Bar Association, is that this opens the door to a potentially greater role for private security forces instead of the police and that it creates the opportunity for people to go after someone long after the event. How is the average citizen to know what a reasonable time is? This opens Bill C-26 to considerable abuse.”
Bill C-26 is an apparent part of a consolidation in Canada of a People’s Republic of China and former Nazi Germany style Police State. In this apparent Brave New World which is being created by Canada’s Parliament, untrained security firms with no police training will be empowered to arrest and detain you, if you don’t show “right think”. In addition, your neighbours will be turned into vigilante informers.
Bill C-26 has totally evaded the kind of public hearings that have historically been associated with a democracy, and has instead been introduced by a scandalous collusion on Parliament Hill.
It is apparent that Bill C-26 has been spawned in Canada by U.S. Homeland Security operatives through the so-called “Security Perimeter” Agreement.
Has Her Majesty’s Opposition been reduced to Elizabeth May only? Are we, as Canadians, simply going to watch the progressive society that is at the heart of our national identity wither away to an elite-inspired crypt-fascist “Culture War“ against our Canadian identity?
Piece-by-piece, apparent archons through Parliament Hill are using the security mantra as a pretext to strip away the very rights and freedoms which separates us from the oppressive regimes which embrace “terrorism”.
The near unanimous support for Bill C-26 on Parliament Hill, shows that Members of Parliament are serving funding agents who seek to destroy the spirit of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
The same clique of regressive interests who were opposed to former Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau’s efforts in the early 1980’s, to affirm our sovereignty through the this vital constitutional enactment, now seek to use the security mantra to legitimate crypto-fascist assault on our rights and freedoms.
Isn’t it ironic that our government opposes the “freedom-hating” regimes of Iran, Syria, North Korea and elsewhere while it adopts the laws and the dystopic legal frameworks of these regimes?
When Stephen Harper and his backers were members of the Reform Party, they were often chastising the “centralized control of Ottawa” as stifling democracy. Mr. Harper and his backers had sought to capitalize on a populist message inspired by “western disaffection“. Mr. Harper was once part of a “reform leadership” which was against the “centralized power” of Ottawa. Mr. Harper had once campaigned against “politics as usual”.
Having obtained the power of a majority government, Stephen Harper and his backers have quickly sought to pursue the abusing of power. Mr. Harper “centralizing tendencies” are also reaching authoritarian levels. This abuse has been arguably more than any other government in Canadian history. Stephen Harper‘s government pursuit of the “re-shaping“ of Canadian amounts to: No need for public hearings of the past, I have a “majority”, and can do anything I want.
The apparent hypocrisy of the Stephen Harper government is reminiscent of George Orwell’s famous book Animal Farm. This book was an allegory on the often hypocrisy of “revolutionaries” who seek to cynically used populist messages to inveigle power for a self-serving agenda.
And, how is it possible that only one MP voted against Bill C-26?
It is apparent that only one MP voted against Bill C-26 because our Office of the Prime Minister that constitutionally is supposed to be a facilitative agent of a democratic governance context, is now being transformed. Bill C-26 and the near unanimous support for it on Parliament Hill signifies the formation of a de facto One Party State. Mr. Harper’s role in this is apparently to be our Chairman Mao Tse-tung.
Mao pursued the fascistic “Cultural Revolution” against the Chinese people starting in the mid 1960’s into the mid 1970’s with the support of political apparatchiks. The same kinds of apparatchiks who sponsored Chairman Mao are now apparently rallying in Canada for the step-by-step creation of a modern version of Maoist China. C-26 seeks to takes us further down the abyss.
Bill C-26 is now in third reading in the House of Commons.
As this Bill nears becoming the “law of the land”, we, as Canadians, need to reflect on whether today’s People’s Republic of China, and the former regime of Nazi Germany are models for where we want to take our society.
As Canadians, it may be vital that we support Elizabeth May’s lone efforts in Parliament against a Maoist-inspired agenda of Bill C-26 and the Establishment in Canada which pursues the destruction of both our national and human sovereignty.
As Canadians, we are arguably only as liberated and respecting of democracy as our sovereignty permits. Canadians need to wake up to the kind of so-called “Brave New World” which a malevolent archontic ego is seeking to create through Parliament Hill in Bill C-26.
Pierre Elliot Trudeau spoke the following words on 6 April 1968 in front of the Liberal Convention [video attached]:
“For me this beautiful, rich and energetic country of ours can become a model of the Just Society, in which every citizen will enjoy his fundamental rights, in which two great linguistic communities and peoples of many cultures will live in harmony, and in which every individual will live in harmony.. C‘est ça le Canada.”
Trudeau’s words arguably embraced the very identity of who we are as Canadians. However, that is what architects of Bill C-26 seek to destroy.
Shall we, as Canadians liberate ourselves from the archons, and once again strive to become a citadel of human rights, social justice, and peacekeeping?
Shall we, as Canadians defend our traditions of Peace, Order and Good?
Or, shall we, as Canadians, continue to drift into the fascistic abyss that is being orchestrated by the archons.
