Recently, pre-eminent Canadian constitutional lawyer Rocco Galati demonstrated that Bill C-51 -- which is now law --- transforms Canada into a fascist state, complete with a modern day Gestapo.

EXCLUSIVE FOOTAGE: Toronto, May 30, 2015, Filmed by Derek Soberal.

Galati explains the powers and consequences of C-51 in these words:

It takes all our private information and shares it with all government agencies, including foreign government. For some citizens that becomes an eventuality of torture and/or death when travelling abroad.

It restricts arbitrarily who can travel.

Freedom of expression and political criticism with respect to "terrorism and the government's role" (becomes) a terrorist offence in itself. So words and thoughts become an act of terrorism under this bill.

It allows CSIS to disrupt covertly constitutionally-protected rights of association, expression, and protest.

It does all of this by taking away all and any transparent judicial oversight.

He says that "We've entered into the final fascist state."[i]

Canada is not alone. Similar legislation is being passed in other "Western" countries, including France, Australia, the US, UK, Germany, and Italy. [ii] It's going global.

As freedoms are destroyed, people, including politicians, are being infantilized and de-politicized.

The "press", an appendage of the fascist state, is no longer free either. Media messaging is tightly controlled by corporate monopolies which repeat consistent "group-think" messaging that supports a supranational corporate agenda. People, including politicians, unconsciously absorb the pervasive "group-think", and alternatives are consistently rejected.

As Henry Giroux explains in "The Fascism Is An Embrace of The Profoundly Anti-Political" [iii] , there is a "separation of power, which is global, from politics, which is local."

This supranational corporate power structure, exemplified by secretive corporate sovereignty agreements, is welded to an agenda that is anti-public at every turn. Domestically and abroad, it entrenches toxic, predatory (neoliberal) economic systems that dismantle public structures,[iv] even as public monies serve as life-support systems for the apparatuses of these "privatized", bailed-out, corporate power centers.

Imagine a permanent war against the social structures of all countries, to have a sense of the "agenda". Domestically, it means health care is privatized, schools are privatized, and postal services are privatized. It means profits from the resource sector flow out of the country as subsidies from the taxpayers continue to flow in. At least $1.3 billion in federal tax dollars [v] are transferred from the public to the fossil fuel industry every year even as the manufacturing base relocates to China and elsewhere.

Externally, permanent globalized warfare slaughters multitudes in what is now an overseas holocaust. [vi] Any country that opposes the dictates of the US led supranational corporate monster becomes a target.
