Private interests will always have the money and legal power to suppress the smaller, more disjointed voices of those who oppose them.
It is not just our own government that is succumbing to these private interests, but also foreign business interests as well. We are selling-off the land, water, earth (oil) and air that is supposed to be for our descendants, so other countries may reap the benefits and pay Canada with short-term monetary rewards.
Along with this stripping of our natural heritage, we give our brightest and best to other countries so that they may continue providing labour for the slow demise of our nation.
As for the digital online realm and it's laws, they are being used as a smokescreen/pariah so that laws can be passed, whose real intentions are to control and limit our own real-life personal freedoms.
Canadians, as consumers, are treated like cattle who are only good for our sweat and money. Politicians and corporate "philanthropists" try and ease their tarnished public image by placing our most vulnerable up as social shields.
All this negativity and sense of hopelessness has slowly trickled down towards our children and their children, leading to a lifestyle of superficiality, over-consumerism, apathy/antipathy and leaving beyond our means.
We live in a world were we are aggressively targeted by entities who harness the power of other entities to subjugate and buy our loyalties towards said entities so we may continue worshipping them without question.
Canada will never be a dystopia, because we are quickly raising the bar for what we consider a "dystopian society".
What can we do? Our generation is lucky enough to be the last generation born into a world without a constant connection to the internet. Where we were raised with the values of our parents and grandparents. The best we can do is teach our children the right values that are in the best interest for them and their children.
Questioning everything and not blindly accepting things given to you that relies on white lies or stretching the truth. Everyone is trying to sell you something, whether it's a product or a lie.
Take the time to appreciate what you have NOW, because people are getting better at taking things away from you before you realize you even had it in the first place.
Freedom is always earned and always threatened. Protecting your own freedom is not good enough.
