The Present Belongs to Crowds

Today and tomorrow, like it or not, the future belongs to crowds.

We are now living in a society where there are too many chiefs and not enough indians.

Remember the images of the Chinese pro-democracy protesters dispersed by troops in Tiananmen Square; the images of the several million mourners streaming through the streets of Tehran to the funeral of Ayatollah Khomeini; the images of a “tent city” emerging in Tompkins Square Park; the images of hundreds of English soccer fans penned against a chain-link fence during a match at Hillsborough Stadium, in Sheffield?

The year 2020 is now defined by images of crowds to rival those of the past: people waiting in mile-long lines at food banks; police using tear gas to disperse protesters; thousands of people gathered in support of Black Life Matters, Pro-life, LGBTQ rights and so on. More than ever, the protests of the past few years have shown that the most immediate and dramatic way for people to register discontent and call for change is by massing in the streets in frank and perilous defiance of the establishment and public order.

More than ever, people are standing in the streets rather that in the voting polls.

A dire consequence: governments, legislators and politicians are no longer adopting legislations and policies to build a better society, they are doing it to please the crowds and make sure to be re-elected and maintain their own personal power. To make things worse, news media in search of better ratings, are throwing oil on the fire: news commentators are no longer reporting, they are commenting; the more incipient and incendiary they are, the more profit. The real problem of the world today is not the Covid-19, the real problem is the degeneracies and degeneration of the people.

Imbecility is now the trademark of most of our populations.

Among the younger generation, progressive values are hegemonic. On issues ranging from LGBTQ and women’s rights to anti-racism and immigration, younger people are attempting to communicate their moral values on social media to the older generation. “Black Lives Matter” is just one flashpoint in that struggle.

2020 is getting really crazy, perhaps the most astounding year in generations, a year of norm-shattering abnormalities with an unlimited potential of destruction that might culminate in world-wide conflicts.

Based on the crisis-infused year we are in now, it is easy to predict that the balance of 2020 will unfold with even more craziness and long forgot aberrations. As I see it, as for the deluge, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, the Covid-19 is a benediction that will purge the earth from all the Trumps of this world, from all the malefactors of an evil society.

The White Straight Man

“What do you mean I’m privileged? I know a lot of minorities who have a lot more than I do.”

Do we give too much “space” and importance to minorities?

Today, the only things we read and hear about every day is this outcry about women rights, native Canadian and Americans rights, LGBT rights, Muslims rights and so on and so on, all these people blaming the White Straight Man for their misery.

First, let me set the record straight:

GENESIS 1:

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

My position is quite simple: All men, male and female, whatever their race or color are born equals.

This being said, my question is:

What’s wrong with the Straight White Man, male and female?

The past five decades have not been very kind to the white straight man, male and female. Until the 1960s, the white straight man comfortably sat unchallenged atop the cultural and economic pyramid. He did not have to deal with all these disgruntled people and minorities that we read about and hear complaining every day about their despair and misery.

And then the Straight White Man world exploded.

Today, like it or not, disgruntled people and minorities are everywhere, complaining, blaming and accusing the White Straight Man, male and female about anything and everything.

If the White Straight Man does not agree with their condition, their way of life, their vision of the future, he is conveniently labeled as a racist, homophobic, misogynist individual and personality.

Today, the White Straight Man, male and female, being guilty as charged and condemned without a fair trial, lynched on the public place, is no longer included in anything and no longer part of the conversation. His right to speak does no longer exist.

Freedom of speech for the White Straight Man no longer exist

Unsuccessful, disgruntled, frustrated, depraved people of every minorities confronted with the power structure are now challenging every laws and institutions that they wrongly believe that are confining them to traditional roles in the private sphere.

Instead of empowering themselves by doing what would right to do, sticking to their guns, unsuccessful, disgruntled, frustrated, depraved people of every minorities are now questioning traditional conceptions of gender and sexuality.

Don’t talk to me about privilege.

All these so-called “rights movements” that we see today, instead of promoting and building a fairer, more diverse society and rectifying all possible wrongs that may have happened in the past are only successful in creating more opposition, more animosity and more violence as a direct assault on the well-established moral values of a world global silent community that believe in a better world and rightfully condemned all immoral values.

Today grievance defined the targets of the frustrated minorities. They battle against liberal academics and politicians by stressing multiculturalism and celebrating the contribution of minorities while distorting and minimizing the achievements of white men.

As for the White Straight Man, man and female, they silently fume about companies and schools giving preference to less-qualified people and minorities in an effort to achieve greater diversity.

It is now time to fight back

For the White Straight Man, male and female, it is time to react, it is time to fight back. We are told that we live in a democracy, where everyone has the same rights, the same opportunities. Hello!

Reality Check:

We now live in a democracy where the White Straight Man no longer benefit of the Freedom of Speech right. We now live in a democracy where the White Straight Man, to get a job, shall indicate on his or her résumé that he or she is part of a minority group or a member of the LGBT community.

Here is my take on this:

We do live in a democracy, where everyone has the same opportunities I do and we need to move on. If the fact that you are a woman, black or gay is what defines you, you definitely have a problem, not me.

Talking about privilege only further divides people.

Canada is becoming a nation of immigrants

Canada Immigration

Canada has the fastest-growing population of any G8 nation, with two-thirds of the growth coming from immigration. These newcomers are radically transforming our elite educational institutions. This is especially true of immigrants from Philippines, India and China, who collectively make up about a third of all migrants to Canada, and who tend to exhibit high levels of academic performance.

There’s a century-old precedent for all of this. At Harvard University in 1908, Jews represented only about 9% of the student body. By 1925, following on the great waves of immigrants from Europe and Russia, the proportion had gone up to 28%. At Columbia, the number reached 40%. Twenty-eight per cent of Jews at Harvard in the 1920s graduated with distinction, versus just 15% for gentiles. But just a quarter of Jews participated in Harvard athletics, half the rate for gentiles.

Sound familiar?

No doubt it’s true that Canadian children could stand to watch a little less television and do a little more homework.
