Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII -

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Corona, 'The Science' or Scientism, Islam, the State, the cult of Gender Fascism, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion...

Canada does not respect Private Property Rights

The Greatest threat to freedom

by StFerdIII

The Canadian Charter of Rights is a flawed document. Obtuse language, ambivalent wording and fulsome rhetoric has allowed a huge industry of lawyers and lobby groups to prey off of the public purse. The CCRs contains nothing that was not protected by law before 1985. It does however give wide scope to lobby groups and special interests to challenge in court any and all laws, contracts, and social programs. The Gay and Feminist lobbies came into force after the adoption of CCR and both are the most active court challengers on social issues. Both are of course funded by tax payer money. Nothing clarifies the absurdity of the CCRs more than the exclusion of private property rights. Apparently in Canada all minorities, feminists, gays, and other ‘at risk’ groups have rights – but the very basis of a modern society – private property ownership – is deemed unworthy of protection.

The lack of respect for the foundation of the modern political-economy is manifest in
Ontario. The McGuinty government in Ontario has just decided to appropriate ie. steal, 700.000 hectares of land around Toronto to appease the Eco-Fascist movement and buy the votes of the anti-capitalist crowd. The ‘Greenbelt Act’ allows the McGuinty government complete control over all economic activity in the designated area. This means that Ontario has just appropriated a large economic resource without the owners of private property or private business having any rights.

There is no private property protection in the Greenbelt Act [section 19-2]:
“No costs, compensation or damages are owing or payable to any person and no remedy, including but not limited to any person and no remedy, including but not limited to a remedy in contract, restitution, tort or trust, is available to any person in connection with anything..” Indeed further on, there is a clause that makes it impossible to challenge any government decision regarding the Green Belt in court. The State rules.

For property owners, developers and business owners, it is not an exaggeration to state that hundreds of millions of dollars have now been lost.

The other area of private property infringement is of course in escalating current taxation, and future liability taxation [debts, unfunded liabilities]. Both of these private property extractions are embedded in spending increases at all levels of government. Government spending has gone up wildly in Canada in the past 5 years with the Feds increasing spending by 30 %; Ontario by 25 %; and in Toronto by 18 %. Tax cuts, economies, and spending money wisely, liberating the socialist health care system from its chains, cutting out subsidies, and reconfiguring transfers between government levels is not even discussed in Canada, and if it is, the discourse is entirely dominated by socialists.

Without the respect for private property rights and the right to make and keep capital,
Canada will continue to be dominated by the heavy hand of the State. What is going on in Ontario should not be tolerated. The Charter of Rights as well, either needs to include private property protection or be scrapped. ©
