O, Canada!

I made a short visit to Canada. There is plenty bad said about Canada, all of it true- the snide self-satisfaction of Canadians, the lack of free speech, the crappy government medical care- but all the same it’s a nice place. Clean and friendly.

In all the talk of the worldwide fiscal meltdown it’s sometimes mentioned Canada had trouble in the 90’s and made significant cuts in spending. This is always spun in a liberal way- a liberal government is more trusted to make cuts- but whatever the case it makes it unique among Western social democracies.

Canada is like the US in that it never had the social cataclysms of the 20th century involving communism and nazism, and didn’t develop a large welfare system to dampen any possibility of revolution from the left or right. As a British colony it was more comfortable with private property and free markets. It never had a lot of industry and avoided the labor unrest and associated tendency toward socializing the economy.

But I think that if there is one big advantage that Canada has it is that it’s substantially white. The east Asian immigrants are middle class. The Islamic immigrants are middle class, certainly hostile to their host but without the intensity of the lower class Moslems in Europe.

Canada still doesn’t have and probably won’t have massive Third World immigration and this will keep it in much better shape than the US, Europe, and Australia- New Zealand also should remain white. If the cold keeps out the riffraff, maybe it’s worth getting the Carhartts.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    You are way off. Firstly, Canada does have a large welfare system. 3 out of our 4 federal political parties (I am excluding the BQ here) are left of centre, and the "Conservative" party full of neoCons. We don't have any of the more ridiculous Euro-style welfare perks like 35 hour work weeks, but we are very much a welfare state. Secondly, I find it hard to believe that you visited Ontario and did not notice the blatant third-worldization of Toronto. It, like Vancouver, will be majority non-white in 20 years, if not less. Canada has the highest per capita immigration rate in the world. A number close to 1% of our population comes to Canada every year, and I will give you three guesses as to where the majority of them come from (hint: not Europe). Our only hope for WN in Canada is twofold. Firstly, we are still 80% or so white, which means that when diversity fails in the US, we will be able to see the consequences firsthand, and either reverse our immigration flow or break the country apart. The second is that Canada is so huge that it could become any number of smaller countries, if the Federal Government and popular opinion would let it.
