ELECTIONS: Will Canadians Be Able To Politely Call B.S. So They Can Defend Canada?
Vijay Sarma | Black Krishna Blog | April 3, 2011
After the initial rumblings, I predicted we'd see a ridiculously short six-week Canadian fedelection-jack designed to quickly confuse Canadians into cheering for the best of bad options, or ignoring them, instead of asking for better needed policies at a crucial time in history. Instead, we got a ridiculous "five-week" Canadian fedelection-jack.
While it's not the end of the world and we can enjoy the weather getting nicer, as veteran summa cum laude rogue academic badass Webster Tarpley notes, "retail politics", when they reach out to the public directly in-person to ask for our votes, is the best time to ask politicians for what we want. After this: they'll disappear again.
Canadians should consider their families, friends and futures before deciding to blindly echo the toxic cocktail of partisan propaganda and engineered apathy. With nearly 50% of Canadians likely to get cancer (Cancer.ca), free trade deals costing jobs, martial law declared in Toronto last summer and more: we have real issues.
The Set Up
Starting with the Bank of England in 1694, still running today, global central banks issue money and credit by creating it out of thin air, loaning it to governments to put them in debt and under control, plus use it to indirectly control institutions that both promote and oppose them to increase their power and marginalize any criticism.
Both the political "left" and "right" are controlled by the same oligarchies and always have been. It's a trick that dates back to the Roman Senate and before. Politicians and parties compete to see who gets to manage us for the same big money agenda. Once the cameras are off, they meet and hang-out at pricey clubs and have a laugh.
Globalism or globalization (etc.) is a plan by the world's central banks and corporate oligarchs to use their networks centralize power in a few hands to manage the whole world using "global governance" by the United Nations, IMF, World Bank, WHO and other international bodies, likely by 2012. It's public, though it's not publicized enough.
Hundreds of tax-exempt foundations set up by super-rich people 100 years ago to give out grants to control science, education, media, activism and more can further complicate things. This is also the reason so many activist groups aren't "active" during political campaigns when they have the best chance to convince Canadians.
Eugenics is an underlying goal of the world's oligarchs, or population "control" and "reduction", which helps explain more people getting sicker than ever in the 21st century. Social engineering promotes ignorance and acceptance of suicidal nihilism in the face of threats to our health, wealth and relationships publicized in the media.
Control factors include the fake wars on "drugs" and "terror" to take our rights and on "global warming" to take our stuff. Billionaires are telling everyone to use less so they can steal it all, including governments saying they're too in-debt and broke to fund the socialist systems taxpayers worldwide helped build. So: they're sold to corporations.
For over 50 years people have been exposing this plan using books, presentations, newsletters, posters, flyers, websites, dvd's, protests and more. The basics aren't debatable if people are willing to look at the facts that millions of others worldwide have seen. Today, arguments are usually just about whether or not to look at them.
Voters need to understand the big picture, make sure everyone does and help push for policies that help counter the big agenda. Otherwise, gains made will be at-best temporary, or at-worst part of the plans to push the bigger agenda for global control. Fortunately, the global recession is as big a clue as one could ask for to figure it out.
Stephen Harper may be world-renowned for pushing corporate policies, centralizing corrupt power and keeping Canadians quiet and harmless even if they don't like him. Michael Ignatieff is a carpet-bagging academic who spent the last 20 years in the U.S. Jack Layton is the sick and often silent champion of the underdog. It's a "play".
Prime Minister Harper started this election's nonsense off early with his unrelenting message of "fear" of a "coalition" government that may or may not even be formed. Canadians were asked to choose sides and to "believe" either the "left" or "right" was telling the truth and the other side was lying about something that doesn't even exist.
This set up the basis for choosing sides in the "Canadian Idol" election campaign and collective Canadian schizophrenia to follow. Instead of the same basic facts and conditions, figuring out what's going on and what should be priorities, we're being threatened and bribed with our own tax-money. It's not unusual. But that's a problem.
We also had to debate "DebateGate", where the Green Party's Elizabeth May was excluded from televised debates because her party hasn't won a seat yet, plus the sequel, where Harper proposed a one-on-one debate with Ignatieff, then backed-down after it was agreed to. Again: partisan politics will determine how we each feel.
Many Canadians will ignore the elections as a waste of time. Many others will want to "feel" good about it instead of figuring out how to influence it. Many will choose sides to cheer for or against and hope for the best, theorizing optimistically about vague possibilities that candidates in office for years have never mentioned. It's a mess.
Daily polls further complicate things, or handfuls of Canadians who probably don't understand the issues determining how everyone else should think. They artificially generate support for candidates. They can be designed for specific results. They usually ignore issues. Or they ignore that fact that candidates are. They're ridiculous.
While it can be convenient, social networking can compound our political problems. People get propaganda updates on smartphones (etc.) and now absorb it faster than ever. Twitter often shares a mix of mainstream stories and silliness to appease "followers". We have more to explain than ever. But it's getting harder and harder to.
Campaigns have to offer enough substance to convince people to support them, so we'll get updates, but speculation is rarely given enough context to judge the best policies for the country to deal with globalists causing the most problems. Opinions on whether things will cost too much or work are usually partisan and/or subjective.
As far as psychological operations go: this election's a doozy. Instead of unifying people who can approach their government at the right time with what they need, the 2011 Canadian federal elections are dividing people into camps who don't care - or - who care too much about politicians who haven't served them or their country well.
However, there are trickles of optimism to be found leaking out of the mass and indie media. Many people are really upset about what we're being offered and criticizing the waste of time, money and opportunity to talk about real issues. Instead of feeling deflated, as long as that angst can be used productively, it's possible to use it well.
Once the election starts, it's much harder to politely criticize it with the mass media's spin, people working hard on campaigns and hoping for the best, plus our aversion to accurate criticism of a system slowly but surely destroying Canadian sovereignty and ushering the country deeper into a new corrupt system of "global governance".
The ability to feel as good as possible and to help others do so regardless of what's happening is celebrated in Canadian culture. While it can be handy, over time, it can destroy our ability to think of asking for more instead of just cheering for whatever we get offered. How can we politely explain all this after being invested in the process?
First of all, we have to understand what's going on, which means we have to share explanations of the big picture and discuss them. People in countries worldwide are doing this successfully and working with their politicians on their biggest problems, such as the influence of debt and corrupt international banks on their economies.
Second, we have to make sure our new understanding is shared among people and groups that are all connected to political ridings so they can work together to ask their politicians for more than they're offered, especially during elections. Once any local group organizes to petition a politician, they automatically listen for fear of a backlash.
Third, we have to figure out how to consistently decode and reject propaganda that changes how we think to make it easier for us to accept bad policies as part of a bigger agenda. People who know key facts will often politely suspend disbelief to go along with the political "parties", or elections thrown by governments and the media.
Fourth, we have to make sure we help each other financially, mentally and physically prepare for the worst just in case we don't get active enough to stop the recession from getting worse, among other crises. People can either do this on their own as survivalist individuals easy to pick off later. Or get to know and help their neighbours.
Historically, the 2011 Canadian federal elections fit into the historic battle of "people vs. people in power". Most Canadians know politicians lie and say so, except during elections, when they say they ones they like are telling the truth. More adults have to transcend this group-think and figure out how to avoid just repeating the media spin.
People can start by making sure they can still get angry and help others get angry about what they should instead of what they're supposed to, or policies threatening their future, not just entertaining soap operas or scandals. Current conversations can become safer spaces to give others more confidence to express their frustrations.
Social stigmas attached to actions of traditional activists, conspiracy theorists and others make our options more limited than they should be. If most Canadian adults don't want to talk about political issues outside of our mass media's proscribed discourse, or won't politely share info without talking, it's impossible to communicate.
Individuals have to decide if they want to try to transcend our political emasculation and naivete, have faith in their abilities to communicate and in others' to understand, then take action to beat the mainstream mind control. People can do what they want, including ignore this. But, those who can take action should try to on behalf of others.
Canadians adults have to decide whether or not they want to accept a forgettable election in the face of global threats, or if they want to launch bigger issues virally to make a bigger impact. Technology and an open-minded, tolerant and patriotic culture means it's not hard for Canadians to tell Canadians stuff they feel they need to know.
Everyone is a specialist on how to communicate with someone, so while there's no guarantee of success, there's the option to try. As long as people figure out what they can do, they can do it, so it's really up to every Canadian adult to see what they're up for. More options are below. As long as we still have a chance to act then we should.

Temples throbbing? Blame the election
Peter McMartin | Postmedia News / Vancouver Sun | April 2, 2011
Here, all is calm. The economy hums along despite a lingering recession.
Our biggest threat to our lives is cholesterol.
Yet here we are, enduring our fourth federal election in seven years because of — hang on a moment while I Google this — a Liberal motion that found the Conservatives in contempt of Parliament for not supplying enough information on the cost of three of their bills. In other words, these children don't play well with others, and the fate of our nation, again, rests on the fact that someone wants to be class president.
You have any Tylenol? I have this pounding headache.
So, we're having an election about a debate?
Angelo Persichilli | The Toronto Star | April 3, 2011
If it’s too much to debate international issues that have the potential to ravage our economy, then why don’t we try some “made in Canada” issues that really concern voters?
For example, what do we know about the free trade agreement with Europe that, if signed, will affect countless Canadians far more than any coalition or fake issue of integrity?
What about the impending new “perimeter” security and trade agreement between Canada and United States?
And last, the mother of all issues, health care — what are Harper and Ignatieff planning to do when the current agreement on medicare transfer payments from Ottawa to the provinces expires?
Why don’t they stop selling integrity by the pound and start talking about real issues that matter?
