Is Canada in such a sorry state as Peterson says? Many would disagree. However, there is no voice equivalent to Peterson’s celebrating the current state of Canada or its leadership.
Conservatives, of course, want small government, limited spending, and personal freedom. Trudeau’s government is not supplying any of these things. Progressive Liberals want security, equity, and diversity, but Trudeau isn’t supplying these things either, although he thinks he is.
Jordan Peterson has recently published a video titled Message to the Christian Churches. It addresses the issue of raising up “real men.” Anyone who has been paying attention to the western Christian world will know that the Church has been dealing with this issue for a long time. Remember Mark Driscoll?
Right wingers will resonate with Peterson; left wingers will not. True Christianity is not trying to solve the conflict between left and right. Christ’s kingdom transcends our politics, thank God.
However, here again we see a non-Christian speaking with more influence over young men than any Christian leader. It doesn’t matter how wrong or right Peterson’s message is, it is the message being listened to by the most people.
Below is a link to a survey done in Canada claiming that many Canadians are falling victim to conspiracy theories; specifically the idea that Canadians think the government is evil and is out to get them.
In reality, these Canadians think the government is stupid, incompetent, and greedy.
When reading the survey, replace the term “conspiracy theory” with “government incompetence and greed” and you will be closer to the truth.
I am not one to put too much hope in a politician, but we must choose the best there is available. Pierre Poilievre seems to be that one, but he needs to be voted in as the leader of the Conservative party before he can run for Prime Minister of Canada. What can you do? Watch the video…..
