– The Concise Oxford Dictionary, Eighth Edition

I initially wanted to begin this essay with a beautiful and apt quote from either George Orwell or John Stuart Mill. I opted for quoting the dictionary instead because our language has been so badly corrupted by political forces that this now seems to be the most obvious and important thing to do. Our language is very old, extremely important, and has evolved and developed into an amazing and unbelievably useful system for communicating complex ideas. I don’t believe that it is wise, or even acceptable, to allow people with self-serving political motives to debase our language. If holding firm on preserving our language requires constant reminders to those who attempt to misuse it for the purpose of politics, then so be it.


Canadians are Decent Human Beings

My desire here is to reach the very large percentage of our population that is decent. By decent, I mean morally healthy and having a genuine concern for other people and our future as a civilization. In order for me to do this, I ask that the reader throws off, as much as possible, emotions, political biases, assumptions and all of the mental contamination that you have been forced to digest since childhood. If you succeed in this, you will have a much clearer mind and you will be able to focus more seriously on individual ideas, as opposed to only being slightly aware of the vague notions that are the seeds for irrational political alliances and beliefs.

I have been through this process myself and it is tough to complete. Complete is perhaps not a good word, as this process is never actually complete. But I am now at least in the position of seriously questioning my own motives before supporting any political figure or any political idea. For most of my life I was a left-leaning liberal. I never actually stopped to seriously consider why until just a couple of years ago. In fact, in the last federal election, I voted for the Liberal Party of Canada. During the Harper years, I hated the Conservatives – really hated them. I now think that this hatred was seriously misguided and was based on a lack of knowledge. I have in the past also voted NDP and even Green. If you’re left-leaning this will all seem very reasonable. If you’re conservative, this is likely confusing. Anyway, I will explain.

I think that the reason that I was a Liberal Party supporter for most of my adult life is that I felt that I was a decent human being and that if you cared about other people, the environment, and people less fortunate than you, then you voted for either the Liberal Party or for the NDP. It wasn’t until I began to look very rationally at the tactics of these political parties, and at the results of their policies and actions, that I was able to see that they didn’t actually care about these things at all. What they actually care about is being in power. The tactics that they use – appealing to your emotions – are simply political tools for gaining that power. What they are saying to you is that if you’re a decent person you’ll vote for them. If you’re mean and nasty then you’ll vote for the Conservatives. Their language is more sophisticated than that, and it’s masked and obfuscated by carefully crafted virtue-signalling, but that is exactly what they are doing.

Before my political overhaul and the subsequent escape from dogma that it produced, I had been vaguely aware of the fact that for some reason, whenever people got into power while claiming to speak for an oppressed group, the problems of that group got much worse. This is a reliable phenomenon and very much worth thinking about. Where I live we have a very serious homelessness problem. Our weather can be very wet and very cold. We have a far-left mayor who has consistently run on a platform of helping the homeless. Every time he speaks, he tells us that he is going to rid the city of homelessness – it’s always just around the corner. It’s great virtue-signalling, and it makes the people who vote for him feel like they’re doing the right thing. There’s just one problem: the guy has been at it for ten years now and homelessness is the worst it’s ever been in the city. If you’re a thinking person you might ask yourself if this guy actually cares for the homeless or, is it that homelessness is a great tool for getting caring people to vote for him and send him money. It turns out that his girlfriend’s mother in China is facing serious criminal charges consisting of bribery, embezzlement, abuse of power and corruption in crooked land deals. The Canadian mayor of one of the most sought after real-estate markets in the world being involved with land-swindling criminals from China kind of gets you wondering, doesn’t it? Anyway, due to continued brushes with reality, I’ve become extremely wary of people who make a constant effort at appearing overly virtuous. I count this as wisdom rather than cynicism.
