Shifting the Goalposts

by Perry D Foster
As any athlete will tell you there’s no point in playing a game if the goalposts shift and the rules keep changing. Somehow this fundamental fact of life has escaped the world of politics. In that world, the goalposts are continuously moving and the only object of the game is to win at all costs. Advantage Left  In the eternal battle between Left and Right, one side seems better at this game than the other. It isn’t because they have a better argument, or are more intelligent, it’s because they are craftier. No doubt about it, the Left have the […]

It’s Not 1968 Anymore

by Perry D Foster
For some reason I will never understand, people love the 1960s. There’s something about the decade that they worship. Millions of people still embrace its values, defend its leftist ethics, and ape its revolutionary culture five decades after it has passed. Why? 1960s: A Decade Gone Mad  Part of the reason may lie in responsibility. People hate it, responsibility that is, and the 1960s gave them the opportunity to be irresponsible for the rest of their lives. Let’s look at that. The 1960s gave us a legacy that, although fondly remembered by some, doesn’t have much to recommend itself. People […]
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 […]
