Doug Ford/MSM Is A Problem But We Are Worse.

Jun 3, 2022

A few years ago, I read a story about everyone’s favorite crypto asshole Elon Musk that stayed with me.

When Elon was building SpaceX, he needed rockets. He roamed the globe looking for decommissioned rockets from different governments whose asking price was generally 10-20 million per useless rocket.

Elon asked his engineers how much rockets would cost if SpaceX fabricated their own – starting from scratch on a flight back from Moscow. That number was around 750k per rocket (give or take).

How’s that going?

Elon applied “first principles” to the problem. He started from scratch and had the financial backing to do it. Whether you like the man or not, he now controls every aspect of the process because he broke with traditional thinking and took action.

Yes. Yesterday, Ontario’s PC party cruised to another majority with 17% voter support. 17%.

33% of this province voted, and Doug Ford’s mobbed-up conservative government had just over 40% of those votes.

To say our politics and process of electing people in Canada is broken is a criminal understatement.


You don’t have to like it, but this is life.

What went into Doug getting re-elected was criminally unfair to Ontarians across the board.

MSM’s collusion with Doug Ford and the PC Party of Ontario is a huge story.

Doug’s relationship with foreign groups is a huge story.

The Ego of the NDP and Liberals is a huge story.

There are many stories to write and talk about in terms of this election, and the one that piques my interest is how BROKEN everything is.

We have three businesses that vie for the PIN to our taxpayer bank cards every four years.




These are businesses, not parties who are trying to represent their electorate. Not human beings who need agency. You are stepping stones/barricades to these businesses. Depending on their strategic goals, they hate you or love you to get access to our bank accounts and votes. Then pivot to implementing policies on behalf of the culture of the ruling business, using your tax dollars to shore up support, enriching their friends, donors, and supporters in the process.

That’s all it’s ever been. The slogans are bullshit, as are their intentions.

If we don’t start using first principles, we’re fucked. Sincerely.

Our political system is 300 years old and WILDLY exclusive.

Existing/ruling parties don’t want new blood, laws, or principles in favor of Canadian voters.

So, they team up with media power centers to tell us everything is fine while we all lose.

We become complacent and despondent.

We say “fuck those guys” on election day and stay home.

Instead of speaking up, we shut up, which is exactly what these businesses want you to do unless they need you. Then they call you for interviews and public support and deserve none of it.

If we apply first principles to choosing human beings with values instead of power centers with none, things will change.

Things will change if we give away our white privilege instead of weaponizing it to protect colonial theocratic autocracies.

Things will change when we advocate for the leadership of valued professionals instead of culture vultures and assholes who line their pockets with your money while privatizing health care and building highways for mob friends and construction donors while beating up nurses and political cartoonists.

We need new parties and men and women of value to lead those parties.

We need to overhaul and update our political process making it legally accountable.

We need men and women of influence, to tell the truth instead of hiding from it.

We need to attract better people to a greasy profession meant to attract losers who failed at their day jobs.

Until WE demand these things from ourselves, we’re fucked. D

Politicians and MSM they collude with are a major disease, and we’re not demanding better when we refuse to even show up.

You guys complain a lot about a group of people who don’t vote or get involved in the process.

Have a great weekend!
