Professor Bruce Pardy is a legal academic for whom equal application of the law, private property, limited government, and separation of powers are foundational to the Canadian legal tradition.
A critic of legal progressivism, social justice and the administrative state, Pardy has written on a range of legal topics at the front lines of a culture war that includes environmental governance, climate change, energy policy, human rights, governance, property, free markets, and rule of law.
A recent article published by the National Post reveals Prof. Pardy’s take on contemporary Canadian society in relation to our Liberal government’s cultural assault on national identity and heritage.
Focusing on Canadian academia, and in particular ideological positioning within our universities social sciences curriculla, Mr. Party states the following:
“Four academic doctrines — critical theory, postmodernism, social justice and critical race theory — are moving the world, or at least the West, from this triumph to decline.”
“Unlike traditional academic inquiry, these neo-Marxist doctrines are less theories than programs. They are activist and political.”
This month, media in Canada kicked up a minor dust storm regarding Conservative Party leader Pierre Poilievre’s commentary on the Trudeau family:
“They’re Both Marxists” Says Pierre Poilievre Of Justin, Pierre Trudeau
A video of Pierre Poilievre going door knocking has been posted to social media in which the Conservative Party leader he can be heard referring to Justin Trudeau and Pierre Trudeau as “Marxists” – a term used to describe a supporter of the political and economic theories of 19th century philosopher Karl Marx.
Is Mr. Poilievre erroneous in his conclusion? Doubtful that Bruce Pardy would think so. Can it be that a post-modern form of Marxist theory come to dominate educational circles in Canada?
“Cultural contrition has become ubiquitous: Canada is systemically racist. White people are privileged. The nuclear family is misogynist. Capitalism is oppressive. Private property rights cause environmental destruction. Prosperity produces climate change.”
Marxist Theory on Family:
“Marxists argue that the nuclear family performs ideological functions for Capitalism – the family acts as a unit of consumption and teaches passive acceptance of hierarchy. It is also the institution through which the wealthy pass down their private property to their children, thus reproducing class inequality.”
Marxist Theory on Private Property:
“Much of the core tenets of modern communism stem from their ideas on public property and the definition of ownership in society. Communist philosophy argues against private property and supports collective ownership.”
In terms of racial issues within society, we point to the concept of “systemic racism” as referenced by Prof. Pardy.
Canada is “systemically racist.” There was a time when this terminology was not part of the Canadian construct. Previous to the arrival of Justin Trudeau as prime minister, good ole fashioned vanilla “racism” was the term used to describe racial conflict within society.
Early in his tenure, PM Trudeau transitioned the term to “systemic racism,” and thus injected steroids into what has always been a contentious issue. As such, the playing of the “race-card” ramped up to a whole new level.
After which our PM went on a two-year rampage, smashing up idols of national identity, while transitioning “Old Stock” generational citizens to Canada’s social doghouse.
Was this done intentionally? Can it be that Mr. Trudeau was intent upon establishing a program of national self-flagellation in this regard? For what purpose?
Thus beginning a fresh chapter in national self-hatred. In terms of propaganda dissemination–another classic of Marxist philosophy— Canadian media jumped began to jump aboard the anti-Canadian woke bandwagon.
“These doctrines have become the intellectual foundation for the ascendant ideology of our time, woke progressivism, which is severe, uncompromising and vengeful. Their commandments have become Canada’s secular religion, whose apostles sneer at the foundations of their own society.”
Here, Pardy intimates what all Canadians should by now have become aware of. Wokism, Critical Race Theory, Systemic Racism, et al. Communism cares not for religion–Christianity least of all.
In its stead comes a secular religion called Communism. One must worship and obey all government edicts. Citizens must “surrender their souls” to government. The family unit belongs to government, and not parents.
Under these circumstances, we come to recognize how Marxist theory and it application through Communism permeate a society. Marxists play the “long game.” The methodology being covert penetration of leading institutions within a society.
First, education. Next, media control. Finally, government institutions. Is this not how Justin Trudeau and his neo-communist Liberals have rolled since taking office nearly eight years ago?
It’s bang-on-the-money. Prof. Bruce Pardy knows it, as do a number of independent thinkers within the political realm. Pierre Poilievre, Prof. Jordan Peterson, historian Conrad Black, writer Rex Murphy, and others.
Those who don’t understand Canada’s systemic transition to pseudo-communist state under Trudeau’s Liberals likely number in the millions. If not for media obfuscation, perhaps Canadians of all colours and stripes would come to together in recognizing a profound truth.
Divide and Conquer:
“The use of this technique is meant to empower the sovereign to control subjects, populations, or factions of different interests, who collectively might be able to oppose its rule.”
Eastern Canada vs. Western Canada. Christian vs. Muslim. Quebec vs Alberta. White against non-white. Muslims against LGBT. Black against White. Academics vs. Working Class. Anglophone vs. Francophone. Climate Change vs. Energy Development. Transgender vs. Heterosexual.
Has, or has not, all this social dust been stirred up during the 8-year period that Justin Trudeau has been sitting atop the political throne of Canada?
Woke academia are out to transition our children to haters of home and country. It’s as obvious as the back of one’s hand. It’s also classic Marxism, as applied to Canada’s controlling institutions over a 50-year period of national seduction.
“It all starts with Marx,” says Professor Bruce Pardy.
In Canada, it all starts with ex-Liberal PM Pierre Trudeau. If Canadians aren’t careful, it will end with Justin Trudeau driving the final nail into the coffin of democracy in a dying Great White North.
