Western “civilization” has never qualified as true civilization—it’s always just been Spartan-style slave-making versus Athenian-style slave-making (which fundamentally rests on Spartan-style slave-making.) Spartan and Athenian-style slave-makers are still present. Harper and Trudeau voting in Bill C-51 was an extension of their desire to maintain oppression for others and control for the slave-makers.
Dorianism (Spartan-style slave-making) includes both sophism as well as physical Spartanism. Western Devadom (Athenian-style slave-making) fundamentally rests on Dorianism and takes advantage of playing “good cop” to the Dorian “bad cop” while still enjoying all the privileges of being a fundamentally “bad cop” underneath it all. Athenian-style slave-makers pathologically use the tactic of sticking extremely close to Dorianism in all fields and sectors of society, but giving everything a tiny tweak or adjustment to impart an air of liberalism and progressiveness (that isn’t actually there.) Western Devadom is Dorianism with a phoney-liberal makeover.
For example, Justin Trudeau voted in favour of Bill C-51 but said he would make a few tiny adjustments. That way, he creates the appearance of liberalism while maintaining the same basic oppression.
The phoney-democracy of the Athenians was used to cover up what Athenian society fundamentally rested on: elitism, oppression, and slave-making. The Athenian slave-owners wanted democracy for themselves, a minority elite that excluded women and slaves. Free speech in the West was largely pushed through by the Western Deva-types (phoney-liberals/Athenian-style slave-makers) because the “masters” wanted the ability to say anything they wanted. For example, Voltaire defended free speech not because he wanted to support that which was morally right, but to serve his own elitist self-interest. Not surprisingly, Voltaire defended slavery.
The ability to vote in parliamentary elections and rights like free speech have been extended to include women and all citizens. There are no longer any slaves (formally speaking—wage-slavery still exists but there are no people formally categorized as slaves.) Athenian slave-makers aren’t truly interested in democracy or free speech, just slave-making. Thus, now that representative democracy and free speech are getting in the way of slave-making, they want to suppress even that.
If Voltaire was alive today, he would support oppressive measures like Bill C-51 which suppress free speech. Men like Voltaire don’t truly care about free speech except for themselves and other slave-makers.
