Ayn Rand was born in 1905 and spent her life promoting the individual, the need to seek truth and think clearly.  She rejected all religion and declared God did not exist.  In 1982 she met Him.

Ayn Rand was wrong about the existence of God, but right in her message that people had to fight against state control of their minds.  The collectivist mind brings about a deadening of our souls, strips our lives of ultimate meaning.

That is at the heart of Motion 103, that seeks to make it a crime to speak against Islam, though there clearly are times when criticism is valid.  It would be absurd to make a motion forbidding criticism of Christians, or Dutchmen.  No individual or group can be exempt from scrutiny, but the Trudeau government marches relentlessly on toward a silencing of critical analysis.

The government passed Bill 16 :

That Bill is vague, dangerously so, and professor Jordan Peterson states he has no intention of addressing people by their preferred pronoun, (the number of personal pronouns is steadily rising, and now said to be hitting 50). This stand against forced speech has professor Peterson in some hot water.

SOGI: Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity, is a program, swiftly brought into schools, with virtually no consultation. Parents, and even teachers are only slowly growing aware of this radical social engineering.  Embedded throughout this program is the intent to keep parents in the dark about their own precious kids while radical sexual educators work to alter the child’s view of what is normal or right.  Certainly the moral values of the parents are shunted aside in this agenda.

Government intrusion into the moral values of Canadians is coming fast and furious.  Elected officials who might once have possessed a backbone, can’t seem to stand against some of the excesses of the state.  The most courage some muster is abstention, so no opposition is even on record. How terribly brave of ‘leaders’, like Laurie Throness to sit meekly and abstain, while all the other MLAs behaved like trained seals on SOGI.  Hardly a leader anywhere to be found. Maybe Mr. Throness should read his Bible more often, so he can remember, “The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.”  –  Proverbs

We need more godly men, to stand on God’s word, because all earthly governments are comprised of fallible human beings. All the kingdoms of this world pass away, but we individuals live eternally, either in heaven, or hell, and Jesus offers Heaven to all who believe in Him.

The state, our government, seems bent on muzzling moral objectors.  I don’t believe this is really about Muslims or LGBTQ+, or the colour of anyone’s skin, or place of origin.  This is an effective means of achieving totalitarian control, whether the bit players recognize that ultimate aim, or not.  It’s been done before, but oddly those who claim to be progressive and clever, are the stooges of state control.  You have to destroy personal freedom and independent thought in order to wield absolute power.  North Korea is only the worst present-day example, but history is replete with  stories of life for people under the iron grip of a few.

In the dystopian world depicted in Ayn Rand’s ‘Anthem‘ individualism is strictly forbidden, and punished by the state. Her main character says, “Our name is Equality 7 – 2521, as it is written on the iron bracelet which all men wear on their left wrists with their names upon it .  We are twenty-one years old.  We are six feet tall.”

Dr. Mary Bryson,  professor in language and literacy in the Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice, at UBC wants to be addressed as ‘they‘.  She wants compliance with the absurd demand that teachers address students by their preferred pronouns.  Wasn’t it hard enough, and good enough, for teachers to remember just the ‘names‘ of everyone in their classrooms?  Just address gender-sensitive people by their real name, or simply the universal ‘you‘.  Insisting compliance with something you personally don’t agree with is not only absurd but tyrannical.

Equality 7 – 2521 goes on to say, “We strive to be like our brother men, for all men must be alike.  Over the portals of the Palace of the World Council, there are words cut in the marble, which we repeat to ourselves whenever we are tempted: …….. “There are no men but only the great WE.”

“We are nothing.  Mankind is all.  By the grace of our brothers are we allowed our lives.  We exist through, by and for our brothers who are the State. Amen.”

“There is fear hanging in the air of the sleeping halls, and in the air of the streets.  Fear walks through the City, fear without name, without shape.  All men feel it and none dare to speak.”

And there is a growing fear in Canada.  Ordinary people, politicians, preachers,……all seem paralyzed to state the obvious:  That this world of design beyond our comprehension, clearly had a powerful Designer.  That the Bible is His revelation to the people He created in His own image.  That He wrote the manual by which we should live.  That we human beings have two distinct sexes, male and female.  That those distinct male and female bodies were amazingly designed to complement each other and bring future generations into life.  All this must now be blurred into a spectrum of beings, by order of the state.

Once clear truths are coming under attack.  To say those obvious truths might subject you to hatred and vile insults. The government is right to make laws that protect everyone, but under the pretence of protecting minority groups the majority are having their rights and freedoms stripped away. Gag laws on free speech erodes the foundation of a democratic society. Common sense and the pursuit of godliness and truth are becoming more challenging in the once-free West.

Ayn Rand says:  “Those who want slavery should have the grace to name it by its proper name.  They must face the full meaning of that which they are advocating or condoning; the full, exact, specific meaning of collectivism, of its logical implications, of the principles upon which it is based, and of the ultimate consequences to which these principles will lead.”

“What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done: and there is nothing new under the sun.”   –  Ecclesiastes
