~ YOU ARE MORTAL. There, I’ve said it. On a certain day you were conceived, another emerged wailing into the world, and on another certain day you shall shuffle off this mortal coil. In many parts of the world now, and often in history, plague and pestilence carried away whole swaths of people.

Back in ye olde dayes, 1/3 of Europe and 1/2 of England fell to ‘King Death’ via the Black Death, which struck twice in the 1300s. I once had a brass rubbing from an English church recording a family tragedy– a wealthy man, wife, and four children all stricken in 1365. “Here lies Rob’t Leith and Anne his wyfe”.

So swine flu– at the moment– is one more.. but with a difference. In the 20th century we had it all managed, eventually: TB, Polio, Pneumonia and other infections.. the future promised health and freedom from things like the great Influenza of 1918-19. I remember reading church registers of that period: several funerals a week for months in a small town– multiplied into the millions all across the world. Today, malaria carries away millions a year, along with the usual human range of sicknesses in the 3rd world.

Apocalypse Flu

So when a possible modern-style pandemic comes to view, several things come to mind: death comes to all of us.. plague is an ancient human reality.. what can I do to help? to protect my family & friends?.. is this a political ploy, another leftist ‘crisis’ by which to control and distract people?.. this is the reality of much of the world, which we ignore, but which is coming closer to us with drug-resistant strains of the old enemies, and international travel breaking down all barriers… how shall we pray with this old misery reminding us of the entirely predictable mortality we like to attribute to others, and to a fuzzy far-distant future.

Back in the day, the commonplace of art and contemplation was ‘Memento Mori‘– “Be mindful of death”. Christian faith views death with infinite seriousness, and yet with a lightness, and joy, for by
his death and resurrection, Christ has trampled down death, and bestowed life on those in the graves– and on the last day, to all.

Is this merely grisly and morbid? The relic of more uncertain times? To a society of wealth, comfort, longer lives, pampered with every good thing, death comes as a thief, an interruption of the earthly party. The spectre of plague brings the panic of the rude fact of death.. OUR death. To that we add pain and suffering.. something else we’d rather ignore.

Utopia cannot answer this finality, so we ignore it. Or, since it is of no account given the ultimate goals of heaven on earth, those who are lost or trampled in the struggle for the promised paradise are of no account.

Memento mori
teaches us hard-won human and spiritual wisdom: it teaches perspective. We have a certain time, long or short, by which to redee the days, show forth our thankfulness for life with living well, and leaving the world and people around us and our country and community better for our having been– whether the world knows and sees it, or not. For many people of faith, This also has to do with the belief that we have “one life to live, and then comes the judgement.”

Even plague or the threat thereof may bring unexpected gifts. At any moment you, we, the world and the universe may end. But there is more to come…. ~


Can’t Handle The Truth

~ ITEM: AP report knowingly built on pure deception?

~ ITEM: NEWSPAPER CIRCULATION crumbles

~ ITEM: President Penisbreast and the Liberal Media Big Mouths

~ AH, THE GOLDEN PRE-INTERWEB era, when the New York TImes and the Big-3 Networks imparted truth unto the masses, and all was well. The American and internationalist Left have wished the new media away or under stern control, so as to ‘stay on message’– the one-sided message of marxist fascism uber alles, along with more traditional messages of control and uniformity… all in the grandfatherly and authoritative baritone of The Cronkite and his clones and successors.

So a “Fairness Doctrine” we hear of– let’s mandate unfairness, and shut up dissent. “Internet control” because it’s all too unpredictable and uncontrollable. The reasonable and informed new media– one thinks of Instapundit, Pajamas media, and hundreds of serious and unscreedy websites– is slowly and painfully replacing the 19th century institution of newspapers, and the 20th century institution of TV-news. That decline in old media is not simply a technological question: aside from the true-believing revolutionaries, who only want comfortable and familiar ideas to tickle their delicate ears, most people want news, thoughts, and all to help them make up their minds on the great events of the day.

Say Obama lies, or screws up, or gets caught out. The propaganda office wants due time to shape news & reaction, to encourage positive outcomes in perception of the President and his policies and person. What could possibly be wrong or go wrong with that?

Propaganda doesn’t sell when there are other sources of more reputable news: the progressive answer? Get rid of the alternatives, hurrah for propaganda. ~

~ ITEM: Tarek Fatah: Turning a blind eye to Muslim-on-Muslim murder

~ ITEM: Fraser Institute: Canadian families paying more in taxes than they do for food, clothing, and shelter combined

~ ITEM: Pierre Poilievre: Canada vindicated at Durban II

~ AN EXPERIMENT: Move to Saudi. Start a militant and hyper-evangelistic church. Store weapons therein. Demand the law change to accomodate you; separate pool and prayer facilities; Christian law superseding all; infiltrate government and get the media on your side. Attack Saudi critics of your agenda. Good luck.

But that’s where we are in parts of Muslim Canada: and our own ‘tolerant’ policies are undermining moderate forces in those communities by giving money and official recognition to the more radical groups and individuals calling themselves ‘representative’ Muslims.” We’re betraying ourselves, and the truly moderate parts of our Muslim community. Imagine if the government considered and funded white supremacists as ‘representative’ of all white people– though they are a small minority– thereby encouraging the growth of such groups, and the silencing of everybody else.

Of course new immigrants have a hard time assimilating in the first generation– that’s the story of most of our own ancestors who came here over 400+ years, from wherever and whenever they came. But as each truly assimilate, and understand that Canada and responsible government come first over creed and culture, that Canadianness is a good thing and worth joining and living and passing on, then we have a society. Damnable hyphenation has had the entirely predictable consequence of dividing, ghettoizing, watering down the whole for the alleged good of the few. It’s an experiment already collapsing under the weight of self-contradiction, but since there’s a bureaucracy on the one side and an anti-Canadian marxism on the other both working towards a weakened Canada, the true revolution will still have to come from below.

I am Canadian. Not Scoto-Anglo-Irish-Dutch-Portuguese-Moldovan and whatever else might be added to the mongel mix that is Binkness. Canada. Of Vimy and the Liberation of Holland; of the Trans-Canada Railway and the triumph at the Niagara Peninsula; of Champlain and Fraser and MacDonald and Laurier and all of them. Of restrained by real national pride, punching above our weight, kick-ass military prowess, inventiveness, basic courage and kindness and welcome to all.

The poor and shiny substitutes of enforced tolerance, free medicare, smug anti-Americanism, and quiet obedience to our ruling and media classes? Not so much. That’s not and never can be Canadian– that’s rank Trudeaupianim, imposed on us by that arrogant fornicating Marxist-loving adulterous smarter-than-thou rebel Pierre, seeking to force an entire people under his utopian will and vision. The HRCs? CRTC? Higher taxes? Bigger bureaucracy? Nationalization? Trudeaupia.

Just imagine if HM Pierre had been ruling over us right now, in the time of Durban II– we’d have seen no essentially moral and determined leadership in the face of the UN & OIC attempted Jihad-by-stages. Forked-tongued old Pete would have cooperated with the bad guys, then come home and sold it as a victory, and reminded us how amazing he was for accomplishing it. Utopian Pierre, with his lies and cruelty and sympathy for dictators and master-plans.

We have to remember that when Thomas More wrote ‘Utopia’ it was a kind of political joke, and that in the Greek, u-topia literally means ‘no-where’– as in ‘never was or can be, or should be’. I choose Canada over some imaginary and impossible nowhere, just as English patriot Thomas More served, suffered and died for his faith, conscience, and vision of a better England than that imposed by Tudor bureaucracy, lies, and bullying upon that powerful Catholic Kingdom, by that violent porcine prince Henry VII.
