On May 1, 2020, the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau (“Justin”) announced a unilateral ban on so-called “assault weapons.” A “comprehensive” ban at that, with upcoming confiscation.
May Day is the holiday in the Marxist world, and it is likely not coincidental that this was Justin’s chosen the announcement date. Marxism, as we all know, is a totalitarian mode of governance.
History is replete with examples of totalitarians confiscating firearms to disarm the civilian populace – just try to name a totalitarian regime that didn’t. As well, history is full of examples of totalitarian regimes surviving longer than they otherwise would have, since unarmed domestic resistance is largely neutered when confronting by armed enforcers.
And so, Justin is very much following in the footsteps of Stalin, Mao, Hitler and Mussolini – Alpha Males all (for present purposes, as they were Communists and Fascists, classify them as Alpha Collectivists).
Yet the Internet is filled with characterizations of Justin being a Beta Male – which does seem to fit. (Whether this is due to nature or nurture we’ll leave for others to assess. We do know that his father apparently tolerated serial and very flamboyant adultery, amongst other things, on the part of Justin’s mother, Margaret Trudeau, a sign of Betahood on the part of the père.)
Justin and others will surely take great umbrage at the comparison to Stalin et als. – not without some justification. After all, it seems inconceivable that he’s personally contemplating having his opponents killed, or sent off to newly established Gulags in Alberta, or killing fields in Saskatchewan.
But this piece isn’t just about Justin – but he and Beta Collectivists like him (i.e., Progressives and Democratic Socialists), be they male or female. Henceforth, we’ll refer to them collectively (pun very much intended) – as “Justins.”
