A recent article published by National Opinion Centre, a division of Canadian media organization National NewsWatch, delivers the following statement:
The Trudeau government’s Bill C-7, would “make MAiD available not just for people at the end of life but anyone who has an incurable physical condition. For example, a young person with diabetes; an older person with arthritis; a person with a longstanding disability, would all be equally acceptable candidates for assisted death.”
So writes Dr. OJaro Kotalik, MD, Physician Ethicist; Professor, at Northern Ontario School of Medicine.
According to Dr. Kotalik, diabetes and arthritis meet the standards of “serious and incurable” conditions with “irreversible decline”– two main eligibility criteria for MAID. These patients become eligible for medically administered death, even if they did not receive or could not access treatment.
What to make of this “progressive” agenda as tabled for legislation by the ruling Liberal government of Canada?
A fundamental question should get the brain cells of concerned Canadians fired up:
Why is Prime MinisterJustin Trudeau and his Liberal government so driven to expand the parameters of assisted dying qualifications to those suffering from arthritis and diabetes–for both the young, and the elderly?
Such a basic inquiry– one never addressed by Trudeau’s complaint mainstream media. Degree of contemplation of the ethical ramifications from CBC, CTV, Globe & Mail and National Post? One step short of nothing.
How strange it is. What happened to the relevance of life and death within Justin Trudeau’s “no core identity” Canada?
A philosophical work from writer Hannah Arendt published in 1963 entitled “The Banality of Evil” includes the following quotation:
“The essence of totalitarian government, and perhaps the nature of every bureaucracy, is to make functionaries and mere cogs in the administrative machinery out of men, and thus to dehumanize them.”
To elucidate, we turn to the dictionary meaning of the word banal:
“So lacking in originality as to be obvious and boring.”
What this speaks of is a condition in which a breach of moral standards transitions to an casual “everyday” occurrence. In other words, repeat an action often enough, and the general public will in time view the issue as a normal element of society.
Establishment media in Canada are perpetuating this standard regarding many social issues. In this case, we speak of a legal method to knock off Canadians inflicted with relatively common illnesses.
What a GIANT transformation our society has undergone since Justin Trudeau became prime minister in October, 2015. Degree to which CBC and corporate media articulate this obvious transition? The answer is no degree whatsoever.
Speaking of the day PM Trudeau captured the throne of Canada in 2015, Cultural Action Party stated at the time that this would result in profound damage to our nation.
If it were not for media, general society would recognize a coordinated attack upon freedom and democracy in Canada by way of our ruling Liberal government.
