This news is absolutely surrealistic. Things are going so fast since the start of 2011, we are having difficulty keeping up with all the changes. I began to raise your awareness in a couple of posts recently here, and here, about the impending collapse of the U.S. and the unavoidable Balkanization that would ensue. Independent republics would form, all with their own agendas. This National Post article informs us (I didn’t know, for myself) that a lot of businesses below the border (in the U.S.) have begun adapting to a new clientele that they are trying to seduce and bring to their shops: Canadians but especially Quebecers. The use of the French language is beginning to be implemented, slowly but still, fleur-de-lyses decorate windows at certain restaurants, etc. There is even a website that gives useful information to shoppers concerning border wait times, price comparisons, etc.
That is just incredible! During the French period of the colonization, the country that is called Canada today was called Nouvelle France, New France. So, is it far-fetched to envision a union of New France with New England? No. If you look at the map, you will see that what are called today the states of Maine, Vermont, New York, etc, belong to the same land mass as the Provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick. The irony here, and I can’t help but to underline it (please forgive me!) is that people south of the border seem to show a willingness to use the French language rather superior to what we could ever got out of certain Canadians here in Montreal or just over the St-Lawrence river in Ottawa. Anyhow, I am glad that it is becoming a reality. You know what, I just had an idea. A blueberry pie made with blueberries from Lac-St-Jean, served with Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, from Vermont. That would be delicious! Or French and literature classes that would be taught at the Wilhelm Reich Museum in Rangeley, Maine. Maybe someday…in our new country. Until then we will keep imagine great things for the future, because anything in life always begins with a great idea. The fleur-de-lys is here to stay and it will conquer the world.
You think that the world is going just right ? Well, think again. This world is going right to the brink, sliding little by little, notch per notch, toward Armageddon. Obviously, if we are ever going to engage into a new world war, it won’t be the progressives’s fault, nor the liberals’s, nor the democrats’s. It will be the fault of all the totalitarian stooges and agents that are way too numerous out there in the open. It will be because of their machinations, manipulations, misdeeds to deliberately sabotage liberal democracy that we will face ourselves with a world that will have crumbled from within into total collapse. We may very well be the last humans of history to experience what is called democracy. It has been invented during the Enlightenment, so it can disappear, it is not eternal, especially if we don’t do anything to protect it.
You may wonder where I am going with this. Well, follow my train of thought. If you have been observant of the international scene, with its political, economical and geo-strategical dimensions, you must have noticed that certain signs are present that lead to conclude that big changes are on the way. Nothing is permanent. We have seen it during history many times. States and Empires only last for a time, inevitably they all end up collapsing one day or another. It is just a question of time. In recent years, many events have sent us clues to gather and analyse. Among other elements, we can mention 9/11, the creation of the Euro Zone and the European Union, the rise of Islam, tensions and conflicts continuing to increase within the United States, the rise of China’s economic power, the desire for a greater variety of sources of energy and for healthier food and medecine, water becoming more important as a natural resource, important migration of populations, the number of cars reaching the numbers of humans on Earth, pollution problems, etc. This list is not exhaustive.
Here is what I see in these events for the future. Very soon, a combination of three things will undoubtably unleash the dogs of WWIII. First, a series of Arab countries will declare war on Israel over the pretext of the question of Palestine. Around the same time or a little later, civil war will begin in Europe, due to the high level of social tensions caused by the Euro Zone and the European Union that have been custom-built to benefit Germany, and by Muslim immigration that refuse to integrate into european society. And finally, the United States, once the greatest democracy in the world, will collapse in shame, breaking into smaller republics, becoming the Balkans of North America. Each one of these new republics will have its own agenda, political regime and ideology, sometimes ready to join the Canadian Federation but sometimes not. In certain cases they will embrace fascism to become corporate states and some other times they will try to continue clinging to the notion of liberal democracy. I continue to think that Vermont and Maine are made for being Canadian provinces. If Canada collapses as well into smaller entities, they would fit perfectly into a new larger state composed of Quebec, New Brunswick and the states of New England. Can you imagine all Franco-Americans and French-Canadians of the North-East in the same state? That would be cool.
Listen to me folks. This is not necessarily what I wish for but rather what the signs are telling me concerning the future. There will be a lot of people that will wake up in astonishment and bewilderment when it all starts. In my case, I will be ready to continue the fight even harder for democracy, because I am already aware of the big game that is being played. While the masses will still be into the stages of trying to come out of their sleep and get awake, I will be a warrior for our great civilization made out of Greco-Roman culture, Judeo-Christian moral values, Enlightenment philosophical principles, liberal democratic political ideology, and secularist social and civil organization. If the world has any chance of survival, it is with that program. Any totalitarian utopia will inevitably fail, for the simple reason that humans are fallible. Totalitarian regimes need perfect people to make it work. As it can’t find any, it governs through force using terror and torture to discourage dissent, resistance and revolution. Totalitarians seek to build a glass castle. However, as soon as somebody drops something, the whole building breaks into pieces.
This letter was sent by President Roosevelt to Prime Minister of Canada, William Lyon Mackenzie King on May 18th 1942. Roosevelt is then presenting Mackenzie King with a plan to favor the assimilation of French-Canadians, similar to what Roosevelt was apparently trying himself to do with Franco-Americans, Italians of New York and Jews. This letter was published on a website on May 12th 1998, but unfortunately, it is no longer online today. Normand Lester reproduced it in his book The Black Book of English Canada (pages 279-280 for the French-language edition). Anyway, you have it here. It is the proof that there is a very old agenda in this country to assimilate my people, from the days of Lord Durham to Pierre-Elliott Trudeau and probably to this very day. I don’t know if you realize it in English-Canada, but it stinks. You should change your behavior and your attitudes. This has got to stop.
Roosevelt’s May 18th 1942 letter to Mackenzie King – EXERPT
When I was a boy in the « nineties » I used to see a good many French Canadians who had rather recently come into the News Bedford area near the old Delano place at Fair haven. They seemed very much out of place in what was still an old New England community. They segregated themselves in the mill towns and had little to do with their neighbors. I can still remember that the old generation shook their heads and used to say, « this is a new element which will never be assimilated. We are assimilating the Irish but these Quebec people won’t even speak English. Their bodies are here but their hearts and minds are in Quebec. »
Today, forty of fifty years later, the French Canadian elements in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island are at last becoming a part of the American melting pot. They no longer vote as their chuches and their societies tell them to. They are inter-marrying with the original Anglo Saxon stock; they are good, peaceful citizens and most of them are speaking English in their homes.
All of this leads me to wonder whether by some sort of planning Canada and the United States, working toward the same end, cannot do some planning — perhaps unwritten planning which need not even be a public policy — by which we can hasten the objective of assimilating the New England French Canadians and Canada’s French Canadians into the whole of our respective bodies politic. There are, of course, many methods of doing this which depend on local circumstances. Wider opportunities can perhaps be given to them in other parts of Canada and the U.S.; and at the same time, certain opportunities can probably be given to non-French Canadian stock to mingle more greatly with them in their own centers.
In other words, after nearly two hundred years with you and after seventy-five years with us, there would seem to be no good reason for great differentials between the French population elements and the rest of the racial stocks.
It is on the same basis that I am trying to work out post-war plans for the encouragement of the distribution of certain other nationalities in our large congested centers. There ought not to be such a concentration of Italians and of Jews, and even of Germans as we have today in New York City. I have started my National Resources Planning Commission to work on a survey of this kind.
