  1. One thing that really bothers me about Jordan Peterson. https://canucklaw.ca/un-high-level-panel-on-global-sustainability-jordan-peterson-co-authors/

    Sustainable development is the lynchpin of marxist operations. If you haven’t encountered it, you will. It is a guideline for politics in Canada, and has deeply infiltrated corporations and schools. That’s far more than a mere six degrees of separation.

    I put a huge astrix beside him as *controlled opposition?

    The first red flag I encountered was the eccentric but very astute Owen Benjamin. When Benjamin was being deplatformed [And I mean, aggressively, in physical venues] over directly attacking the “trans kids” issue, Peterson was under consideration for an appearance on Dr. Oz. When asked Peterson hummed and hawed and was ambiguous about the matter. Sorry, that’s not a split the difference issue.

    Peterson craves acceptance in elite circles. I hope I’m wrong,

    • I don’t disagree with you, but who benefits from bank runs. Banks?

      Or, if the objective by fascists is to destroy the national economy in order to “build back better”, then we have a possible answer. In other words it’s about the revolution.

  2. Maybe the rest of us should also take the hint.

    Remember “offshore” bank accounts? It’s not actually illegal to have one. What’s illegal is not to declare the interest (and in some cases the assets). Of course, “legality” is a fuzzy concept – at best – in Canada these days. What used to happen is that they were secret, people cheated by not declaring them, and nobody was any the wiser. Under information sharing rules, they’re effectively no longer secret… which presumably made them sort-of useless to people intent on not paying their taxes.

    Here’s the thing, though: I’d say that they’re back to being useful. In the present environment, there’s very little to gain from avoiding taxes (on token interest). There’s a LOT to gain by having accounts where they’re not easily seizable by government. In practice, they’re not going to get cooperation as easily as they do within Canada, and unless one is a massive (real) criminal, their seizure attempts will end at the account being out of the country.

    At its crudest, if one has “cross-border” banking with linked accounts in Canada and the U.S., what’s lost from shifting the funds to the U.S. side of the operation, at present? I don’t see downside (if both accounts are in U.S. dollars, avoiding exchange rate gouging). There’s nothing illegal about it, and it makes it more difficult for the government to get the money frozen.

    Emptying out accounts in cash is presumably a somewhat equivalent option.
