Here’s Ayn Rand’s answer to the claim that evil IS all-powerful: “Then I saw what was wrong with the world, I saw what destroyed men and nations, and where the battle for life had to be fought. I saw that the enemy was an inverted morality—and that my sanction was its only power. I saw that evil was impotent—that evil was the irrational, the blind, the anti-real—and that the only weapon of its triumph was the willingness of the good to serve it. Just as the parasites around me were proclaiming their helpless dependence on my mind and were expecting me voluntarily to accept a slavery they had no power to enforce, just as they were counting on my self-immolation to provide them with the means of their plan—so throughout the world and throughout men’s history, in every version and form, from the extortions of loafing relatives to the atrocities of collectivized countries, it is the good, the able, the men of reason, who act as their own destroyers, who transfuse to evil the blood of their virtue and let evil transmit to them the poison of destruction, thus gaining for evil the power of survival, and for their own values—the impotence of death. I saw that there comes a point, in the defeat of any man of virtue, when his own consent is needed for evil to win—and that no manner of injury done to him by others can succeed if he chooses to withhold his consent. I saw that I could put an end to your outrages by pronouncing a single word in my mind. I pronounced it. The word was “No.”” [from Galt’s Speech in Atlas Shrugged]”
Trudeau screams about the “illegal actions” of truckers. What about the illegal actions of a totalitarian government? It’s like a thief calling his victims “criminal” for demanding their money back.
Giving any government “emergency powers” based upon the government’s subjective definition of “emergency” is a blank check for unlimited, unprecedented and totalitarian dictatorship. Example? Canada, right now.
If Trudeau fires on the truckers, will Biden rush to defend them as he claims to defend the Ukraine?
In a lawless regime, is Hillary Clinton’s proven guilt of any significance? The criminals will not prosecute a fellow criminal.
“There’s a level of admiration I actually have for China,” Trudeau responded [in a video uncovered from 2014]. “Because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime and saying ‘We need to go greenest fastest, we need to start, you know, investing in solar.’”
“There is a flexibility that I know [former Conservative Prime Minister] Stephen Harper must dream about of having a dictatorship that he can do everything he wanted, that I find quite interesting,” he continued.
The resurfaced video of Trudeau’s admiration of Xi Jinping’s government, who took the reigns of the Chinese Communist Party in 2012, comes as his government is currently cracking down on peaceful protests against Chinese coronavirus-related civil rights violations, using tools many are comparing to “martial law.” [Breitbart News]
