Seven Great Truths, by Robert Gore

Revolutions dawn when an appreciable number of the ruled realize their rulers are intellectual and moral inferiors. –“Much More Than Trump,” Robert Gore, March 3, 2016

Justin Trudeau has done more to usher in that dawn than any other globalist. His invective and cowardice have rendered him contemptible in the eyes of millions of Canadians and others around the world despite the best efforts of the kept media to protect him. That he and his ilk are intellectual and moral inferiors is the first great truth to emerge from the truckers’ protest.

In a modern economy, goods and people must be transported. Cars, trucks, trains, ships, and airplanes, and the people who operate them, are essential. Southwest Airlines’ pilots brought the company’s operations to a standstill with a few days of sickouts. The truckers established a chokehold on Ottawa and blockades at U.S. border crossings, exacerbating supply chain issues. Canadians will survive just fine without Ottawa, but supply chain issues bite in a hurry. Which prompts the second great truth: Production is the essential primary, everything else depends on it.

Is the political class essential? They’ve mandated useless masks, brutal lockdowns, deadly clot shots and vaccine passports. They’ve closed countless businesses and destroyed countless jobs. There’s more to come: proposed central bank digital funny money and social credit systems. They’ve imposed confiscatory taxes and stultifying laws and regulations. Their rampant cronyism, favoritism, corruption. and hypocrisy elicit widespread disgust. Education has become indoctrination, health care a pharmaceutical cornucopia. Welfare and warfare state insiders thrive, the rest of us get state propaganda and Big Brother. Why do we need this political class? The third great truth: We don’t.

Freedom Convoys are a milestone escalation in a rebellion that’s been gathering steam in Canada and elsewhere since well before Covid-19. Protest until now has been limited to voting, the alternative media, humor, and peaceful demonstrations, which the ruling class has ignored, deplored, censored, or canceled. Thousands of trucks are an order of magnitude greater than a march or rally. Freedom Convoys are coordinated movement and obstruction intended to throw a monkey wrench into society’s intricate workings. The fourth great truth: The battle has been joined, the rebellion has gone kinetic.

Trucking is one of countless choke points upon which modern production, distribution, and commerce depend, and there is no way they can all be defended and protected. The dominant trend of our age—decentralization—puts computers, smart phones, cameras, drones, robots, and weaponry in the hands of anyone who can access and afford them. The electric grid can be short-circuited, computer systems hacked, installations closed, cryptocurrency transactions conducted, demonstrations organized, and the high and mighty mocked in viral memes—the avenues of attack are endless.

Individuals have never had more potential power, and let’s not forget the most important power—brainpower. There are millions of essential jobs requiring high levels of intelligence, skill, and training, like driving an 18-wheeler or piloting a jet. Complicated systems can be brought to a standstill with the malfunction or sabotage of a component or two, or in the case of their human constituents, the refusal to perform essential functions. The fifth great truth: Complex systems are inherently vulnerable from outside and within and there’s little centralized bureaucracies can do to protect either entire systems or their constituent elements from decentralized attack.

    Some important things are being broken in Canada. I believe most Canadians don’t realize it yet.

    As a donor, I may end up in difficult circumstances if my retirement funds are seized. Acquaintances (former friends) may roll their eyes and figure I brought it on myself.

    The principles of freedom of speech and private property are suddenly negotiable. It happened because the “news” has no obligation to be honest or balanced.

    Don’t trust government. Government is asshole.

      He has done something tremendously dangerous. He has managed to redefine free speech as equivalent to violence thereby allowing him to exercise the emergency use of armed state force, and the forfeit or restriction of property rights. Non-negotiable.

    I hope the host will not mind me going somewhat off-topic, I think this deserves serious consideration. The police in Ottawa deployed horses and have trampled two old ladies one with a mobility walker.

    • gwbnyc February 18, 2022, 8:27 PM

      and so distributed.

    I understand from Ezra Levant that the first article in the Canadian Charter states that the next articles are negotiable at the whim of the state and the queen. IOW, fuck your freedoms and I mean that fundamentally. See the difference between our system and Canada’s? Nevertheless, none of it means anything unless we are willing to exercise our rights in the face of government tyranny. The Canucks have essentially no rights, yet they walk that walk with integrity and courage. Unfortunately when the kinetics start, they might realize why the 2nd Amendment in the US Bill of Rights matters.

    Casey’s axiom of protest: don’t go down to that protest unarmed or without a fuckton of armed buddies. Relying on the government’s graces is the road to failure.

    The Freedom Convoy, if my estimation is correct, was one big Tiananmen Square Chinaman in front of a tank, and then he gets squished. It’s a moral win for the citizens of Canada. Now what? The insurgency. I hear the Canadians are going to try to go over to a cash based system, and shortcut the banks. I like that idea because the banks are (resisting the urge for profanity here…), well, you know what they’re doing. Fuck the banks! Canada has a lot of Wolverine country – an incredible amount of hidey-hole country. Is it possible that the shitstrom to come may include the Great White North and the US and Canadian tyrants will have to control way more landmass than they can possibly control?

    Anyway, I’ve got my eyes glued to Ottawa, and to the Ukrainian border. The world is an absolute powderkeg now. Do I have enough stand-off range? ammo? food?

    I pray for the Canadian people. They’ll need every miracle they can get. I do think Trudo will go down but it’ll be messy. (Looking at the cougar with the bloody teeth in the sidebar). Oh! Dairy Queen is in the post below this. I was at a beautiful, old-school DQ in Canada on vacation. I maneuvered a huge rented RV (the rock star size kind) through the intersection, turned left and up the street to park it and take my fam for ice cream. A local Canadian decided to get up in my driver’s door window, getting out of his econo midget car, and to hassle me about something. i couldn’t figure out what it was about. I asked him if I’d done anything wrong in the intersection and that was not his issue. He couldn’t directly say what it was; I was left to surmise later that he was butt hurt about the land yacht and probably my carbon footprint or something. All that to say Canada is now reaping what it’s sown with too many weepycunt assholes in the voting booths and holding the levers of power. Not that we’re any better; I know that too well.

    Canada the brave! Beat their asses with a hockey stick and go from that street into the parliament building and rave, baby. Get fukn aggro! They are wielding the kinetic antidote against you, and when are you going to feed it back to them?

    It’s a well-known fact how squishy-soft, worthless and hypocritical the liberals are. This article describes better than any I’ve read lately how Canada’s own leftists have embraced the propaganda in order to vilify the very ideals they profess to believe in. In simple terms, they’ve fucked themselves.

  • Joe Krill February 19, 2022, 7:12 AM

    Gerard, Thank you. Great article and lesson here by Robert Gore. Simply put, the so called Canadian elite, are evil. Their bluff has been called.

    • John Venlet February 19, 2022, 9:18 AM

      Joe, it’s not just the Canadian elites who are evil. ALL the so-called elites, in all countries, at this time in history, are evil. Every. Single. One.

    If a man woman a family are not set up with tangible assets, they got no business sticking their toe in the fight. If you don’t have cash, gold or silver worth a few months minimum, readily available you need to rethink things long term.

    If you don’t have the resources on hand to eat assist, others when possible, and the cash to sit on and laugh at these tin pot communists, you’ve screwed up. If your not willing to house travels, moving to or away from objectives, your ain’t in the game.

    This isn’t a game, this is for all the marbles, this is freedom. Vs communism.

    The goal should be to operate solo long term with little or zero assistance from the outside.

    While it might sound silly a good bicycle or five is good shape is a viable way to get around.

    You go down, go broke yet have money in the bank your a part of the problem, not the solution.

    All the while these smug fucks sit back behind legions of law enforcement military.

    While I didn’t coin the concept, these people have homes address, permanent work places. If their Govt, protections close by, while in route home, in their home, their yours if you choose what’s behind door number four.

    In the next nine months, things well deteriorate. Stock you refer your freezers, keep fuel and fire wood on hand.

    THEY have to nine months before elections, must accomplish their agenda. Not that the republicans are going to accomplish anything exceptional.

    Three can keep a secret if two are dead.

    Millions of ‘Armies of One’. Are there enough targets?
    Should scare the shit out of any politician with a lick of sense.

  • James ONeil February 19, 2022, 9:50 AM

    The sixth great truth; Far too many fear the chaos of freedom and hence choose the, imagined, safety of serfdom.

    • gwbnyc February 19, 2022, 1:01 PM

      too true.
      I’ve heard it said thus: trading freedom for security renders neither.

  • Dirk February 19, 2022, 6:52 PM

    Friends, I’ve no illusions of running off to fight the communist. Think it more then reasonable to wait for em at my very own county line.

    But then should a shooting match touch off, our crew won’t be shoulder to shoulder, nose to nose,,,,,na we’ll be on the ridge lines, near the bridges, the creek shallows, we’ll be behind their supply lines. Lord knows we’re going to need those supplies.

    We’re in a land where fertilizers plentiful, diesels in every other rig on the road.
