Weaponizing Language

Weaponizing Language

by Perry D Foster
We normally don’t think of language as a weapon, but it can be. In fact, there is no end to the way in which it can be used to hide the truth and serve evil. You’re probably asking yourself how this is possible? Isn’t language just a bunch of words? How could language hurt or influence a person? The answer lies in the way our minds work. Richard M. Weaver, the great conservative writer, expressed it well when he titled one of his books “Ideas Have Consequences.” Indeed they do. The way our minds perceive things is critical. We can […]

When It’s Time to Act

by Perry D Foster
                          I became a conservative activist ten years ago. I already had conservative values, but it was at that time that I became fully aware of how much Canada and other Western nations were changing. Until then, I had not realized that our traditional  values, history and faith were under attack. Something in the definition of what it meant to be Canadian was changing. Sacred Traditions Trashed But there was even more to it than that. All of the traditional virtues I had grown up with were being persecuted. […]

Why Globalism is Doomed to Fail

by Perry D Foster
  Nothing guarantees failure so much as going against human nature. There are certain human qualities that are undeniable. Think of any group of people. While they may come together and form a community, each of them is still unique. They have their own qualities that make them who they are. Of course they are part of a group, but their personalities are their own. The same is true for nations and cultures. The stunning variety of world languages, customs and beliefs is amazing. And each of these cultures took centuries to develop.  Fierce Resistance When outside powers try to […]

The New “Establishment”

by Perry D Foster
The late 1960s were a turbulent time. Almost every established value was being challenged, and it was common in those days to call traditionalists and conservatives the “Establishment.” Arrayed against the Establishment was the “Movement.” Although ill defined, it was dedicated to tearing down the existing society and creating a new one. Paying  for the  Movement’s Mistakes It’s goals were never completely clear but the sentiment behind them was. Unfortunately, although some of its ideas were admirable, ( who could argue with peace?) it veered off into the darkness. Today we are seeing the effects of that mistake. It has […]

The Shape of Things to Come

by Perry D Foster
In 1933 the famous English novelist H.G. Wells published “The Shape of Things to Come.” It was Well’s vision of what the future might look like. He correctly predicted a future world war, followed by chaos and a return to stability under a new world order. The new world order was called the “Dictatorship of the Air.” It was made up of technologically advanced airmen who controlled all transportation, restoring civilization after the chaos caused by “rampant nationalism.” In the book the new world order eventually creates a worldwide utopia. Utopia Has a High Price There’s only one problem. The […]

Why I will Never Be Postnational

by Perry D Foster
I cherish my identity. To put it more accurately, I cherish my identity as a man, a husband, a son, and a Canadian. There are other things that I am proud of, and have no intention of apologizing for. My pride in these things, and my desire to protect them, are normal. Both my identity, and the freedom to express my pride in at, are part of my heritage. They are nothing to be ashamed of. Our Governments are Against National Pride. But that is not what we are being told. Along with millions of other people of the West, […]
