It is not only charming to live in a small town where everyone knows everyone else, but it is also generally safer. When humans have close-knit reciprocal relationships; when they, at an innate level depend on each other, having something to lose or gain, whether economically, socially, or psychologically, they are likely to be mutually cooperative in their daily lives. Natural reciprocity breeds peaceful co-habitation. Forced reciprocity does not.
Extrapolating this premise to the current political landscape in Canada, one can see that the innate human contract has broken down. Reciprocity has, in effect, turned to force and extortion. Where once resided reasonable middle ground now sits Left and far-Left assemblies, making stifling demands on an already stressed middle-class population, and in the process crippling the framework that underpins economics. A group of multi-millionaires and billionaires, not wanting to miss an opportunity, or possibly creating it in the first place, deftly wield the proverbial marionette in their own misguided delusions of grandeur. They are like “want-to-be-kings in waiting”. For what? For the complete breakdown of society?
Ultimately the result is a struggling middle-class that is being crushed and looted from all sides. The majority of whom have been psychologically divided from each other, muzzled, and beaten down by political correctness and cancel culture, to a point where they are in danger of losing the very fortitude required to rise up against this phenomenon. A debilitating phenomenon that can only be described as liberal fascism.
