Compassion & the Global Guilt Gang

A fellow who knows me says that, rather than slapstick humour, I engage in slash-stick vitriol. I like that; it suits me.

Too many Canadian women are so used to mouthing platitudes and politically correct, mush-mouthed drivel and bilge--they're NICE Canadians--that I don't know whether the nicest among them can even see the truth any more ... the robbing of their families and their children by those with their own agendas. I do believe it's time for a little vitriol ...

The Background

This morning, CBC has allowed Paul Martin and Jack Layton to politick on how Conservatives would ruin Canada's socialist social values, among other things. Last week, I wrote on Liberal social values and Layton's spending spree might be even worse; it would be no better. If you haven't read it yet, read my post on how hard working, playing by the rules Canadians' tax money is wasted on people who either should not have been allowed to enter Canada or who make choices which allow the rest of Canadians the privilege of taking care of them and their problems.

January 14, 2006: Michael Ignatief, Saviour -&- Female AIDS Immigrants, A Reality Check -&- PM: appointing justices -- the tribe has spoken

Might I remind Canadians of these quotations; there is more:

"I don't know how I got infected with HIV", says Lynne, a 26 year old Toronto mother of five. "I think it was from my ex-boyfriend because he was always out messing around with other people that would sleep with him." ("Women with HIV educate others about protection", The Daily Gleaner, Jan. 13, 06, B2.)

Michael Ignatieff, intellectual, import, Liberal--as opposed to the corrupt ones who've been at the trough--waxed loquacious over "a compassionate country based on equality of citizenship" (on other people's money). Remember the wheel-chair bound Khadr kid here for the taxpayer-funded medical benefits. Also:

They know that the Martin government hasn't just talked about social justice. It has backed rhetoric with action. It has defended a key institution of common citizenship, our national health care system, with $43-billion of investment [What does he mean by "common citizenship", anyway. Is there any other citizenship? OK ... Global? ]

Do you think the above is defending our health care system?

Canadians & the Global Guilt Mafia

Some Quotes, or Thoughts, for the day via BCNU2, 1/14/2006 19:29:20 -- I excerpted the most fitting for what I am trying to say. Thanks to the one who compiled these.

Choice has always been a privilege of those who could afford to pay for it. ~Ellen Frankfort

Most people are willing to pay more to be amused than to be educated. ~Robert C. Savage, Life Lessons

You taught me to be nice, so nice that now I am so full of niceness, I have no sense of right and wrong, no outrage, no passion. ~Garrison Keillor

A Gift Especially for Maurice Strong, Stephen Lewis and all the Global Governance crowd

From the same source as above -- it's as though someone were reading my mind.

Punishment is now unfashionable... because it creates moral distinctions among men, which, to the democratic mind, are odious. We prefer a meaningless collective guilt to a meaningful individual responsibility. ~Thomas Szasz

We have a system that increasingly taxes work and subsidizes nonwork. ~Milton Friedman

We're the middle children of history.... no purpose or place. We have no Great War, no Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. ~From the movie Fight Club, based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk

The global guilt crowd ... saving the world ...

speaking engagements ... cushy sinecures ... international hotel rooms ... fine dining ... and our guilt?

The recipient of many honours, Stephen Lewis, the UN secretary-general's special envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa, will give two free public lectures ... celebrate International Development Week -- International Development Week .... opportunity to learn ... how [Canadians] can become involved in international development and become true global citizens. Feb. 1 & 2

[ ... You may listen to these speeches and learn of] The Role of the University and Community in International Development.

... Canada and the World: (Y)Our Responsibility. ....

A Companion of the Order of Canada ... special envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa since June 2001 ... a commissioner for the World Health Organization’s Commission on the Social Determinants of Health, and director of the Stephen Lewis Foundation, which is dedicated to easing the pain of HIV/AIDS in Africa.

A former Canadian ambassador to the United Nations, ... deputy executive director of UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, .... appointed by the Organization of African Unity to a panel of eminent personalities to investigate the genocide in Rwanda....

In 2005, Mr. Lewis was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by TIME .... holds 22 honorary degrees from Canadian universities, ... Pearson Peace Medal ...

... his book Race Against Time. ....

A Personal View: the UN's Lewis sounds like a disciple of Maurice Strong ...

I have had enough. I don't think I am responsible for all the world's ills and I do believe we have an increasing number of Canadians right here who need help ... the soup kitchen crowd ... the increasing number of drug-addicted young people ... the more and more dysfunctional young ... Meanwhile, our government is trucking in even more who are unprepared or unsuited to contributing to Canada and keeping out or making difficult the entry of the more suitable, so I have read.

The do-gooder crowd in their taxpayer-funded sinecures, 'honoured', living high on the socialist do-gooder hog food chain ... travelling and staying in top hotels ... eating in precious and expensive restaurants ... saving the world ... from the world's own choices ... and we should feel guilty ...

Horse feathers ... bilgewater ... You'll get no guilt from me, Stephen and the rest. Many of us had to make choices, to study and to work (when not kept from it through political decisions) and I am not about to feel sorry for a group anywhere else but right here! I have no more time for those who have not learned or been helped, despite all the fine UN talking and planning heads ... money thrown at the problem which got lost along the byways of the congresses-and-symposia-hotel-restaurant-dictator-Swiss bank route.

I have champagne socialist fatigue ... guilt fatigue ... do gooder fatigue ... You and Maurice and all those fine UN fellows, go over to Africa and instead of meeting with the ambassadors and ruler-dictators, go to work yourselves with the needy on your own dime ... but stop guilt-tripping the rest of us.

Hindsight ... always 20-20 ... Inuit activists

making "an international case out of Washington's alleged indifference to global warming."

Arctic natives seek global warming ruling -- just in time for the U.N. climate conference in Montreal Charles J. Hanley, Dec. 8, 05, AP

MONTREAL [. . . . ] The warming threatens "the destruction of the hunting and food-gathering culture of the Inuit in this century," said Paul Crowley of the Inuit Circumpolar Conference, representing 155,000 Inuit of Canada, Greenland, Russia and the United States, where they are known as Eskimos.

On Wednesday, the Inuit group submitted a petition to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, an investigative arm of the Organization of American States in Washington, "seeking relief from violations resulting from global warming caused by acts and omissions of the United States" the world's biggest emitter of greenhouse gases. [. . . . ]

Utter bilge, of course. The US being pressured "to reduce emissions" in front of 10,000 people gathered under Canadian government and UN auspices ignorant of the fact that the US had performed better than Canada but would the education of these "activists" have been adequate to arm these Canadians--if not the rest of the Inuit Circumpolar Conference--with the reality?

That "hunting and food-gathering culture" sounds so 21st century ... on a snowmobile with a gun ... when there is wealth underneath those snowmobile tracks ... the kind of wealth that requires an education, a clear mind, and a degree of hard, practical realism to develop ... Never mind, Big Brother will take care of it for you ... You just jump on that snowmobile, or grab a carving knife and some soapstone ... You'll need to be ready for another international jaunt to sell arts and crafts ... and did we mention our plans for languages development ... many world heritage languages ... yours ... check with the Language Tsar Dyan Adam for the details ... plans in place ... once the Liberals are re-elected all the businesses are set to go ... work ... make money ... Voisey's Bay ... pipelines ... oil ... LNG ... plans.

Incidentally, did ex-GG Adrienne Clarkson have more purpose for her expensive circumpolar jaunt with several artistic and other friends than it appeared at the time? How short-sighted of me. I should have guessed there was more to that than a friendly diplomatic get to know you jaunt. The courting of the Innu ... planned ... executed ... and then helping--urging?--them to go before that hotbed of global balance, fairness, sage judgements ... the UN ... the UN of Maurice Strong's global governance ideas ... and fortunately, Louise Arbour is with the "UN World Court". How fortuitous!

How could I have missed all this in the planning? It just goes to show what being stuck in the boonies does to one's global awareness ... and even ability to maintain that finely honed element of global guilt.

Who have funded and instructed the Canadian Inuit on how to go about getting United Nations involvement? ... The cynic in me asks.

Strong Road to Global Governance

Re: Maurice Strong's Yellow Brick Road to Global Governance -- "The result would be decisions reached by self-selecting elites.... People who hate actual people but love Mankind and seek to improve it no matter what.... " Posted by Elizabeth Nickson on 18:55:02 2006/01/12, via LifeSite

[. . . . ] "We must transition to sustainable development." "... forced." "... break inertia." Those "who oppose us are special interests and dangerous ideologues."

All these emotion-laden, fact-deprived statements are patently false. [. . . . ]

We must "train the collective will, institute educational measures and increase social pressures." [. . . . ]

Voters hardly appear in either the Earth Charter or global governance model. Both bypass national governments and representative democracy in order to empower the sort of people who are willing to sit in committee meetings .... The result would be decisions reached by self-selecting elites.... People who hate actual people but love Mankind and seek to improve it no matter what....

This is one of the best pieces I have read from Elizabeth Nickson.

Strong Revamped Oil-for-Food

Strong Neck Deep in Suspect Money Trail to Oil for Food Scandal Posted by Terry Vanderheyden on 19:02:32 2006/01/12 -- In Reply to: Re: Are Canadian media afraid of Strong, Desmarais, Martin? posted by The Australian, Jan. 11,06

NEW YORK, January 11, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) .... In 1997, Secretary-General Kofi Annan thanked “one person by name” who was chiefly responsible for revamping the Oil-for-Food program, “and that person was Strong,” Rosett explains. Strong reformed Oil-for-Food from the original oversight of two UN entities to one “special unit within the secretariat.”
