Here’s the news release that was obviously prepared on the off-chance that the Moon report didn’t go their way“; Shine on, Richard Moon! .. (Scaramouche)

~ NS SCOTT: Shocker: Moon recommends Section 13 be repealed .. (NScott)

~ THE JUST-RELEASED MOON REPORT seems to advocate the abolition of Section 13.1 of the Human Rights Act, having to do with online hate. This is a surprise to many, and a disappointment to conspirazoids expecting the worst. However, do the bureaucratic math on it. First a grumble, then a cheer ensue.

Utopia is just ahead. Section 13.1 is a tangle of trouble at the moment, and what Parliament can undo, it can redo. Let’s just toss it, and get on with the other aspects of Utopification, like speech codes at universities, and Christian-bashing. We’ve come too far to let one piece of legislation threaten the whole project. Now maybe the bloggers and other extremists will go back to their usual ranting and drooling on other topics, and we can put this whole unpleasant business behind us.

One Step Back

Bureaucracy– like any form of hive-based insect-life– is about survival, propagation, the whole collective, and not any particular member or even sub-hive. Sacrifices Must Be Made, if for appearance sake, and for a time. My time in the Anglican Wars were a political education above all– since that sect in its North American form is all about pure revolutionary politics, and this-worldly calculation– and this little CHRC mini-retreat feels very familiar.

screwedHowever– rejoice! Let’s take it as another welcome dose of good news, and a serious rebuff to the Hall-Lynch-Warman-Steacy cult of speech-control, and another small victory in the fight-back against Soft Fascism and the all-embracing mommy-state on the broader front. Moon was safe home-team material, and though no doubt they knew earlier than anybody else, the CHRC and minions hate bad optics, and uncontrolled reality.

Stand In The Corner

This also comes as a further rebuke to the current crop of bureaucrats, their policy, and the crazy-cowboy mess they allowed to develop at their own HQ. So far, all the attempted damage-control has backfired. The PR and talk-back has not calmed the storm. Sadly, Utopians are not good at evaluating their faults and mistakes, because they are the chosen pilots of the goodest ship ever, the SS Utopia. If they question one part of the program, they might accidentally come to doubt part, or even the whole Utopian Thing.

They are the good ones, we are the evils ones.. this is a minor setback: Utopia is still just ahead, if we try hard enough. Ideological harmony has been restored. After all, Utopians are the truest believers of our uncertain secular society. Utopianism is an irrational and blind faith, existing in spite of all the evidence to the contrary, and in the face of human nature as revealed in the daily newspaper.

Who Is They™?

This is a civilization-wide war, and the opposition are playing for keeps: we can’t afford to go back to comfy conservative sleep, and figure They™ will somehow handle the rest of it. The past 15 months or more should nail in our minds this one fact: We are They™. You are They™. Get to work. You can be sure Lynch & Co. will be figuring out how to escape, dpownplay and sideline this latest bit of bad news– it’s what bureaucrats do.

Thus, this fight is not over– but this is a jolt of good news. Let’s hope– and write, and pester, niggle and bug our elected reps and anybody else– to make sure our Parliament gets the message and erases this blot on our Canadian rights, duties and freedoms. The system does not work: it’s a shuddering over-engineered Rube Goldberg Contraption, with smoke and bits flying out, and needs to be torn down and rebuilt as the tiny device for a few purposes it was originally intended to answer.

Of course, I could be wrong. Just sayin’, is all.

Sez The Ez:

“The CHRC’s bunker, complete with earpiece-wearing thugs, thick glass, and bizarre “you can only talk to me through the phone” rules, is about them keeping up their paranoid, Stalinist personality. Working in a poisoned atmosphere like that, is it any wonder that CHRC staff would think nothing of writing volumes of anti-Semitic bigotry on neo-Nazi websites, or hack into a private citizen’s Internet account? Their Stasi role models would. I bet some of them even dress in dreary Soviet-block styles.”
