Trudeau’s Election Shows Canada as a Frivolous Country
In today’s world a frivolous government is a deadly hazard to its people. And a frivolous government is exactly what Canadians elected for themselves. So how much longer can Canada exist as it is, in one piece?
Consider Alberta. Alberta is younger and more technologically savvy than most of Canada, and has the natural resources to become prosperous — if only the rest of Canada would stoop mooching from the province. More:
Once the dominoes start to fall, there is little to stop them all from falling down. Ontario has successfully dominated the rest of Canada up until now, but it is living on borrowed time. Quebec is holding on by a thread, for now. But the pressure on Alberta to split will only grow from now to 2020 and beyond.
What Ties Canada Together Into One Nation?
Like most former British colonies, Canada is a hodge-podge of poorly-fitting puzzle pieces and tightly wound springs waiting to be released. Every year that passes, the nation is a poorer fit.
But unlike most former British colonies, Canada is populated by generally intelligent people. Perhaps even more importantly, Canada evolved — and still nestles — inside the sphere of influence of a much more economically important former British colony. Canada’s protected and affluence-inducing location has helped hold it together all these many years.
Annexation to the US is Not the Answer
In 2001, about 20% of Canadians wanted the nation to be annexed to the United States. In 2016 the number may be a bit higher or lower, but the case is not compelling. Canadians can travel to the US, shop in the US, work in the US, and live in the US — anytime they wish. There is no “pressure of annexation” as long as disaffected Canadians can so easily access the US.
The video above makes a good case for more Albertan autonomy from the predatory Ottawa government. Time will tell whether Ottawa will force Alberta to seek independence, or annexation to the US. If Alberta leaves Canada and the Commonwealth, the rest of Canada is likely to experience cataclysmic changes, with other provinces lining up to leave as well.
It is better for Canada to remain a whole and independent nation — and to work out its problems between its people and provinces. Better for Canada, better for the US, and better for the world at large. But is that likely to happen? We can hope.
Canada’s geographic challenge, according to Stratfor:
The US itself, has a lot of work to do just to clean up its own massively corrupt political system, at all levels.
A fragmentation of the US is possible, but unlikely unless something catastrophic — such as a nuclear war or a massive total collapse of the power grid, economy, and systems of trade, all taking place while a global war is in the works elsewhere. If that were to happen, the rest of the world would be no picnic. The US population has been made stupid and helpless by a decades-long campaign of government educational social engineering, a lowest-common-denominator popular media, a destructive third world immigration invasion, and the steady loss of civic and cultural institutions that once served as a living scaffold for America’s heart.
But too many Americans are dependent upon regular paychecks from the government — and too mindlessly incompetent to set out on their own — to present much of a threat to the established order.
And the rest of North America?
Mexico has the potential to fragment into cartel-like fiefdoms, without constant US support and oversight.
As for Central America: Fuggiduhbowdit!
The US went through its territorial acquisition phase prior to 1917. For roughly a hundred years, the US has been giving territory away and granting independence to multiple farflung former possessions. Recent US wars were not fought for territory, but for other, largely ill-conceived reasons.
If Canada Does Break Apart, Will the US Want any Part of the Resulting Fragments?
As mentioned above, the US largely moved beyond its territorial acquisition phase at the close of the 1800s. There is no urgent desire within the US to acquire more territories to administer. But there is a great deal of latent capital investment in the US which would pour into certain parts of Canada, should rules and regulations permit.
But the US is growing too old and soft for the territorial acquisition game. After the long-overdue dumping of Obama and his demolition crew, the US will be in the mood for mutually profitable business between America and Canada — and Mexico if it can staunch its self-inflicted bleeding long enough.
The US has a large number of corrupt Democratic Party inner city precincts that must be dealt with, for the country to truly move ahead. And it must severely overhaul its dysfunctional immigration system, and radically slash budgets for destructive departments and agencies that stand in the way of an abundant and expansive human future. But those are things that can be done, so long as the bloody expansive aims of Russia, China, and radical Islam can be held in check, and the global dysgenic Idiocracy can be slowed.
There are a lot of things to be done, and most of the people who think they are helping, are actually doing the opposite. But that is the nature of humanity. Everything they think they know, just ain’t so. Just check their past predictions if you are uncertain of their bona fides.
