Shapiro would probably like to be arrested, and his buyout 'fee' might be somewhat less—but don’t let him know we’re talking Canadian; although he may be too ignorant to know the difference since he doesn't specify US dollars on his site.

Still, he would need to convert it to his ‘superior’ American currency—$37,000 - $75,000 (rounded down).

Like Ben Shapiro or not we need people like him so lefty liberals and liberals in general dont end up controlling our society as a whole as they try every day and every day they seem to gain a little more ground

look at the mess the USA is in and 100% the fault of liberals

As I said, Canada has it's own talent in this regard.

So try watching this if you want to consume a truly intellectual discussion between a current Canadian critic and an expat for, "fresh insights into the debates underlying the furor over political correctness, multiculturalism, and the future of liberal democracy."




It's not a case of, "Like Ben Shapiro or not:" it's just that we don't need pop-culture-style Americans coming up here and trying to 'educate' us.

Thanks, and Michelle Obama. Shame on them, too. You know, I heard Trudeau on KEXP endorsing their fundraising campaign last summer.

And probably for free. Our politicians just give it away while theirs . . .. We're letting Americans walk all over us.

Oh, andThe Munk Debates are a debacle, too. But at least last spring they had Stephen Fry (you know, the Commonwealth bond) and Jordan Peterson who mopped the floor with the American lefties when they came to town.

Canada first. :up:

Sorry, I forgot to add the video.

My favorite part is at the 58 minute area. And yes they did mop up the floor with the lefties. Wasn't even close.

1:05:20—Goldberg warns about ‘swarming individuals and turning stray remarks into social media campaigns,’ and I may share some guilt for doing that on this thread, so I encourage people to watch the whole Munk Debate on Political Correctness as well the Ben Shapiro OP video for context and meaning . . ..

But for my favorite in the Munk debate, I will go with the, “mean white man,” exchange between Dyson and Peterson—1:06:35 -1:10:50.

Because I think Americans like Shapiro, as in the opening and then the Q and A of the OP video, who come up here and insult Canadians in a ‘superior’ but ignorant American manner deserve a good smackdown just like the one Peterson handed out to Dyson in the Munk Debate and just as I’ve tried to hand out to Shapiro here:

at the end of the day the debates are irrelevant. the "gotcha" moments are irrelevant. when we as a society around the globe stand on the realities and facts not able to be erased by semantics - we see how illogical it is to even play the game of who is better or worse. thats why you have things like brexits. the people dont care about what fry or peterson say in a gotcha dialogue. they just want to use their last gasp at democracy and force the issue. and in the end brexit is a brilliant example of how irrelevant western democracy has become. because there is a good possibility that the brexit vote results will be dishonored and ignored. trumped yet again by the malfeasance and corruption of western capitalism. we have exposed the reality that the people have no say over the policies or laws etc in their democracies. they simply have a short period of time to chose a person who will put the will of the few ahead of the real majority who suffer and are affected in real time every day. all the dominoes and hallmarks that marked the fall of rome are evident here today. the many are paying tribute to outside forces outside the walls - so the few can live a little longer in their luxury.
the capitalist idea of liberty is that one persons right to profit can be greater than another persons right to live.

Hi burnedatstake,

One of the most fascinating videos I've ever come across.

17:54 Across the planet, one person in four lives as humankind did 6,000 years ago. Their only energy that which nature provides season after season. It’s the way of life of one and a half billion people. More than the combined population of all the wealthy nations.
