The New Blue Laws

When Oliver Cromwell became the Lord Protector of England he instituted a series of laws designed to guarantee the purity of his theocracy. It wasn’t enough that he had banished the monarchy and executed Charles I. He had to control the thoughts and actions of Englishmen as well. Called the “Blue Laws” they were designed to enforce his strictly puritanical view of what English life should be.

Absolute power corrupted absolutely

Fresh from his victory in the English civil war, he had the power to enforce virtually any law he wanted to, and so the Blue Laws were pushed through. As is so often the case, the vast majority of the population kept their heads down and tried their best to go about their everyday lives. As time went by, however, it became evident that life in England had become miserable.

A sigh of relief and a return to sanity

No one was happy in Cromwell’s new paradise. No surprise there. Cromwell outlawed Christmas and forbid dancing around the maypole, something the English loved. Makeup was banned, and too colourful dress was punished. Many inns and theatres were closed. The English were forced to fast one day a month. Not surprisingly, a sombre mood settled over a once merry land. To enforce these rules soldiers roamed the streets punishing or brutalizing those who disobeyed.

Small wonder then, that when his son succeeded him, the whole thing collapsed. The English restored their monarchy, along with maypoles, makeup and Christmas, and the entire country breathed a sigh of relief. What had seemed like a good idea at the time turned out to be an unmitigated disaster and a nightmare for all involved.

A Lesson for Canada. Welcome back Mr. Cromwell. 

What lesson does this contain for us? I submit that there is a crucial one. Canada is rapidly becoming Cromwell’s England. Now, I don’t mean to suggest that we are becoming a Puritan theocracy. Far from it. That’s not my point. In fact, the opposite is true. The Blue Laws are back, but they are anything but Christian. In our new Liberal Progressive Theocracy ( hereinafter referred to as the LPT) we are forbidden by law to criticize. In fact, as many are now coming to realize, we are losing our free speech and fundamental rights in a torrent of LPT laws that prevent us from even daring to express ourselves. Welcome back Mr. Cromwell.

No freedom, no humour, and no enjoyment please

Like him, our present LPT government doesn’t want us to enjoy ourselves. For them there is only one truth, a humourless fanatic one that prevents even the hint of criticism or humour in case someone, heaven knows who, becomes offended. Bills like C-16 and motions like M-103, along with other pieces of legislation like Quebec’s Bill C-18 and Ontario’s Bill 89, are being used to tell us what words we can use, and who we can and cannot criticize.

The Blue Laws are back, and they are no less draconian and tyrannical than they were in Cromwell’s day. There is no room in the LPT theocracy for humour or freedom. If you are deemed heretical you will be punished. They will tell you what language you may use, what groups to love and which to revile, and, if you are smart you will not run afoul of the Human Rights Commissions, special committees and government officials eager to correct your world view in much the same way as Cromwell’s troops did.

A Breaking Point is coming, and it won’t be easy. 

No people who have fought so hard to pursue and defend their freedoms, whose heritage includes the Magna Carta, Charter, Bill of  Rights and other enlightened documents should ever submit to the re-instatement of this historic tyranny. Like the English, I predict that a breaking point will come and we will grow tired of being told how to think, act, speak and live. Our task is to hasten that moment as much as possible by acting in opposition to the New Blue Laws as much as we can.

It is never easy to correct a great social wrong or to rectify a terrible political mistake. We shouldn’t expect it to be painless. But the truth is that we may be amongst the few who even realize it is happening, and part of the very few who even know that it is wrong. Because of this, in large ways and small, it’s up to us to start correcting things. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going outside to dance around the maypole.

  1. Excellent points made and well done article. I would add that any moral or immoral (in Trudeau’s case) position that is FORCED will fail eventually. The Lord does NOT force His gift on us. Love implies NO force and being free to choose. As stated however, if we want the progressives (actually REGRESSIVES) imposition of their immorality to end sooner, we must be willing to suffer the consequences of our speaking out against their new tyranny.

  2. Yes. Whether it will come in a major or minor way, those of us willing to stand up for truth must expect to make personal sacrifices. It can’t be helped.Once again, thanks for your comment.

  3. Unfortunately, we take for granted that our leaders are making decisions that are beneficial for the majority of Canadians We are presently experiencing persons and groups that are able to influence their agendas into law without the whole country being fully aware of the negative consequences these decisions will have on our country now and in the future.
    I believe that groups such as Freedom Defence Canada and other similar groups are taking the right steps in trying to inform and educate Canadians on understanding certain “Bills” that are being proposed by our elected representatives.

    • Well stated. I agree. In fact, we are probably entering a time, unlike any other in Canadian history, in which our elected officials may well be acting against the interests of large segments of the Canadian population in order to further their own ideological agenda. This the functioning definition of tyranny, the government working against the people, not for it.

      Yes. Freedom Defence Canada are indeed taking the right steps to inform and educate Canadians and to provide active resistance against the even greater tyrannies that I personally believe are coming our way.

  4. Again well written and informative article. Glad that so many people are waking up to these issues in Canada. Our parents and grandparents fought for freedom from this kind of tyranny sweeping Europe and we must not let this kind of social engineering slowly squeeze us to death here in Canada.

    • Thanks for your very accurate and timely comment. Yes. You have encapsulated the entire argument in saying that this is now a fight for freedom. We must not think of it any other way, and we must not minimize the importance of this struggle by saying it is just “changing times” or a “new phase.” It is a genuine fight for our very existence, both as social conservatives and as Canadians with a definable identity and culture. Social engineering a people against their will is just plain evil, and it is one we must dedicate our lives to fighting.

    After much pondering about this I am starting to wonder, is this not just an evolutionary feature, as opposed to a bug, of ‘representational democracy’ and the only hope of effective change lies in a movement towards direct democracy by a ‘select’ voter base, along the Swiss model

    • The swiss model can also fail when the people no longer follow their manual. The best system of course is a 100% perfect benevolent dictator. 🙂 Our left wing media is an arm of the left wing parties. Thus TheRebel.media is so important as an alternative. The constant barrage against anything decent by the main stream media has a huge effect. After all, advertisers would not spend millions on ads if they did not work. The CBC in particular is a left wing propaganda machine and should be sold by any future CPC government!

      • I agree with all of your points. I took me a while to realize what was happening to Canada, but eventually I understood that we were being socially engineered and manipulated by left leaning forces within the nation. An important point about Rebel Media though, is that it cannot stand alone. We need a wide spectrum of “resistance media” to the liberal media, in other words, many outlets like Rebel Media pounding away at the same message. It’s starting to happen, but we need more conservative “alternative” media out there. People need to take the initiative and put their concerns and message out there on Youtube, website comments, letters to the editor and so on.
