Why Murdoch Lies

by Perry D Foster
Don’t get me wrong. I love “Murdoch Mysteries.” Set in early twentieth century Toronto, the series is a nostalgic look at a great time in Canadian history. It might even qualify as “Canadiana” so it isn’t easy for me to condemn it. But, as one historical figure so accurately put it, “These are the times that try men’s souls.” We have to be honest. Murdoch Mysteries lies. Historical Truth Is Important.  We do our best when we look back. We see the past as “through a glass darkly,” and we can never truly know what it was like to live […]

Laurier Must Remain!

There comes a time when a nation must make a decision about its past. That statement may surprise you. You may have thought that I was going to say that it would need to make a decision about its future. But these days, the past is in as much peril as the future. Around the world governments and power brokers are attempting to rewrite history, and nowhere is this more true than in Canada. For the past couple of decades a concerted attempt has been made to rewrite our history and eradicate our traditional narrative. Social Justice War  There’s no […]

“Merry Christmas!” and Why It Matters

by Perry D Foster
It’s almost Christmas. As the festive season ramps up, and we prepare for Christmas day, we have a lot to think about. It’s the end of the year, and most of us spend time thinking about what we have done and what we would like to achieve in the coming year. But there’s more to it than that. It’s Christmas, that wonderful time of the year when we drop everything and relax in the spirit of “Peace on Earth and Good Will toward Men.” And more importantly, for millions of us, it’s a celebration of Christ’s birth. That’s where it […]

Why the “Far Right” Might Not Be

by Perry D Foster
  Every political movement has its extremist element. The Right had the Nazis. The Left had Marxist Leninism. Every part of the political spectrum can be distorted and used for evil purposes. But this doesn’t mean every political ideology is wrong. It does mean, however, that they can be manipulated by others for political gain. That’s what’s happening in Canada and the U.S. today. The Rise of the “Alt Right.” Who profited ?  During the later stages of the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign the public suddenly began to hear about the “Alt Right.”Actually, this term had been used for some […]

What My Father Fought For

by Perry D Foster
  My father fought in the Second World War. To be more accurate, he fought in the toughest battles of the war. He was at Juno Beach, Caen, the Falaise Gap, the capture of Antwerp, the Liberation of Holland and the push to the Rhine. It left its mark on him as it did on so many other Canadians, and he had trouble adjusting when he got home. Today he would have been diagnosed as having PTSD, but in those days they just called it “Battle Shock.” It took him years to recover and a long time before he could […]

Can You Recognize the Good?

by Perry D Foster
 Western Civilization is at a critical point. Why do I say that? It’s not because we are going through unprecedented political turmoil, although we are. And it’s not because we are experiencing a massive struggle between globalists and nationalists although, again, we are. It’s not even because of the cultural civil war between conservatives and liberals. It’s more because we now show signs of being unable to distinguish good from evil. Mainlining Evil Practices  What do I mean by that? I mean that our era is exhibiting a truly disturbing and terrifying quality. We are mainlining evil. That may sound […]
