The Great White North


An interesting discussion between Jordan Peterson and Maxime Bernier, leader of the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) – a relatively new Canadian political party.  The relevant election happened yesterday, September 20.  But my point isn’t to get out the vote – but to give a bit of publicity to Mr. Bernier and this party.

Perhaps the most important thing to know: on the Wikipedia page regarding this election, his party is not even pictured in the right-hand column.  So, the party must be doing something right.

More specifically, and to give you an idea of Bernier:

“I one-hundred percent agree with Mises, Rothbard, Hayek….”

He says the right things on decentralization, money, gold, crypto-currencies, free markets, private property, gender insanity, climate change policies, government deficits, and policies toward Canada’s “first nations,” regarding their lack of property rights. 

Most importantly, these days, he says the right things about everything related to Covid policies, vaccinations, vaccine passports, etc.

He knows that the best hope for his party is to gain a few seats in parliament such that they can be a voice in the political debate.  These results will be known by the time my post is published.


  1. From Zero Hedge (https://www.zerohedge.com/political/tired-divided-dejected-canadians-give-trudeau-liberals-another-minority-government)

    "Maxime Bernier’s People’s Party didn’t win any seats, including in Bernier’s riding of Beauce in Quebec, which was won by the incumbent Conservative candidate. The party, which had campaigned on upholding personal liberties and fighting for COVID-19 vaccine choice, increased its share of national vote to over 5 percent as of the early hours of Tuesday, up from less than 2 percent in 2019."

    Less than 2 percent to over 5 percent in 2 years. Pure luck or is this a good sign of things to come?

    1. That's a good jump. The worse things get the more people will snap out of their blind acceptance of the ever-worsening status quo and begin looking for a healthy alternative. Our challenge is to be visible enough to be among the options one sees when looking for an alternative.

      I think it's good sign of things to come!

  2. No human-caused trend lasts forever. Eventually, the status quo will change. This is a given. When it does, the vast majority of people are going to be looking for anyone who can provide them with clear answers as to the direction they should travel. "This is the way, walk ye in it!"

    We need to be not only visible, but also ready and willing to lead when the masses finally wipe the s**t out of their eyes and come to their senses. We need to have our ducks in a row well in advance of this event. Making it up on the fly will not work. Blogs like this one are invaluable for training people to think beyond the current circumstances and preparing them for the inevitable conclusion when sane, honest, just voices will be absolutely necessary and critical.

  3. Old Schuey here I still follow, I’m Canadian as you guys know I haven’t voted since I was 18 because I knew it was crap. But I voted this time, just for spite, and I voted for Maxime.
