"If the Canadian government prevails [against the truckers], tyranny will have taken a giant step forward. The elites will know that they can break the back of any protest." - Paul Craig Roberts
Whereas I was encouraged by the truckers’ protest, I was concerned that, like those at the Trump rally, the truckers and their supporters did not understand that their protest rights are limited to protesting for the elite, not against them. The Constitution, First Amendment, Freedom of Assembly are impotent because they are not respected by the authorities in power. For some time it has been clear that peaceful protests are impotent, because the authorities don’t respect the people or care what they think or want. The authorities only serve a tiny handful of elites who hold the people in contempt.
If the truckers and their supporters were well armed and prepared to resort to violence, the situation would be too large for the police and even for the Canadian Army. Trudeau would have to come out of hiding and ask for Washington’s intervention to save the elite from the people. In other words, the US would have to invade Canada....
If the Canadian government prevails, tyranny will have taken a giant step forward. The elites will know that they can break the back of any protest.
There is no peaceful way to deal with Evil. Evil prevails when those facing it do not realize what they are up against and fail to take decisive action when it would have won the day. I fear this will be the fate of the truckers’ protest. [emphasis mine]
