Above Image: The connection between corporatism and fascism.
I've been collecting news items about the "Security State" mentality that has developed since 9/11. And now I need to unload them.
I haven't gone deeply here into corporate influence, but I do wonder how many Canadians are aware of the power behind the The Council of Chief Executives, who recently adopted a new title, for what reason I don't know because it doesn't change a thing.
I won't say more at this time except to remind you that one of the Council members, Bell Canada, still behaves as if it has a monopoly on Fibre Optics though the government, well over a year ago, said they couldn't, and activists patted themselves on the back.
I know this because I'm one of Bell's prisoners, with only its cable pal Cogeco as an option, and my former non-profit ISP, or any other Canadian provider, such as Teksavvy, VMedia, etc., still not being allowed to share the lines at my address.
9/11 was the pivotal event that gave western secret police (a derogatory term originally applicable only to the security agencies of communist countries) much more power and an unhealthy integration with government itself. We can start off with what's been dominating news in the States, and then move into how Canada has been drifting into fascism as well.
Why Robert Mueller Was Selected To Be The Special Prosecutor
Just another False Flag event capitalized on as an excuse to demonize Iran. Canada came very close to upsetting that apple cart:
And now Russia keeps getting in the way of what America/Israel/Saudi have been salivating over - it's quietly called Greater Israel.
9/11 was pivotal to this ultimate aim - easily equating Islam with terrorism and providing a cover reason to chop up the Middle East.
Condoleezza Rice could now freely announce that the US had plans to "restructure the Middle East" - "to spread freedom and democracy".
Strangely, Rice seems to have slid a bit off the original rationale:
It no longer seems to matter whether it's Left or Right in power. Rice is equally supportive of Obama as with Bush because the goals have remained the same. And the security forces intimidate them all (because they know all their secrets?) while controlling what the public learns from the media.

As for Canada, all that Canadians need in order to see no difference now between Left and Right is to familiarize themselves with the details of Bill C-51, introduced at the request of CSIS during the Harper (Right) regime and unaltered by the current Trudeau (Left) administration:
Here is a whole website devoted to exposing Canada's security system:
Investigating Canada's security bias: exposing a blind eye to the far-right, the use of entrapment and torture, and systemic bigotry.
Even a former CSIS-funded Heritage Front terrorist group member warned against Bill C-51.
And if you think she's just a crazy upstart trying to get some attention, here's more than enough corroboration from a former CSIS officer:
Lawyer warns of systemic racism fuelling the security state
Sometimes it's a good idea to think for a while about what's behind the so-called Middle East terrorist threat. What about the convenience of ISIS helping the US in its "regime change" efforts? Think this sort of thing doesn't happen at home?
Currently, it's Trudeau being accused by the Opposition and the media of being soft on returning ISIS fighters, but let's see what happens when the far right elements of the Conservatives get into power.
Video: See Trudeau acknowledge he takes advice from Canada's security agencies.
Where were they when he ended up being photographed with a convicted terrorist who didn't go to jail because CSIS had never bothered to get a warrant?
There's some evidence in the media that young people have been groomed by security agents to commit terror acts, and that they almost always end up good-and-dead, lest they should blow any whistles - as this couple did. And far too many news reports reveal that a given terrorist was already known to the police.
Here also is a rare case wherein it seems that somebody wanted to refute the charge of systemic racism: The short life and violent death of Aaron Driver
