The Last Days of the Patriarch: by Alexandre Trudeau

Foreword:

Bizarre Adoration of Castro by the Trudeau Clan

On Tuesday evening, October 12th, 2012 in his Liberal riding of Papineau in Montreal, federal member of parliament, Justin Trudeau, held a rally to announce his bid for the Liberal leadership.

Isn’t he dreamy? Justin Trudeau

Isn’t he dreamy? Justin Trudeau

Press and media, notably the Washington-based Huffington Post, appear to be aiming at another “Trudeau coronation”. Huffington is hard-selling the inexperienced and unaccomplished 41-year-old Justin the way his father was sold in 1968: as masculine. Among its disturbingly obvious political campaign offerings is a 4-part e-book and an extensive photo album of the little rich kid’s lifestyle.

And again, as in ’68, all question of the Trudeaus’ support of Communism is either stifled by ignoring it, or countered in advance by unexpected apologists (a separate post is coming on Peter Worthington, anti-communist opponent of the original Trudeau).

He’s a millionaire, you say; why would he support communism?

His father was a millionaire: he supported communism. Millionaires built communism; international banks and multinational corporations built the USSR; they financed the Bolshevik Revolution; they paid to Sovietize Russia; they looked the other way while its citizens died in slave labor camps to get it done.

I invite you to view a very different family album which neither the Huffington Post nor apparently anyone else is bringing to light.

This one illustrates the bizarre, intimate relationship of the entire Trudeau clan with a Communist dictator. Justin’s brother, Alexandre, unselfconsciously revealed the depth and effects of that relationship in 2006 in a heart-felt elegy to the dictator which he penned in English for the Toronto Sun and in French for La Presse.

The occasion was the birthday of the dictator, Fidel Castro, who had turned 80, and who had handed his responsibilities over to his own brother, Vice-President Raúl Castro. (Raúl assumed the full presidency in 2008.)

The personal friendship of Pierre Trudeau and of his wife and three sons with Fidel Castro, is politically problematic. What, precisely, was the effect on Justin Trudeau of this close personal family relationship with Castro?

One son (the late Micha) was a personal favorite of Castro’s; the other son — Alexandre — is clearly under the Castro spell. The mother who raised her sons to adore Fidel, had herself declared that Castro was the ‘sexiest man alive’. Add to this that the mother’s mental instability is well known.

Alexandre’s 2006 article is not only remarkable for its lack of normal moral discernment, but for the apparently thorough Communist brainwashing of its author that it reveals. Responsible journalists should be questioning the frame of mind of the author’s brother: Liberal leadership candidate, Justin Trudeau.

Raised in the same environment, with the same special Cuban friend, by two parents who uncritically adored Castro, Justin — a man with no particular accomplishments but his ability to spend his father’s money — would like to be Prime Minister of Canada.

While some journalists rush to absolve Justin of his father’s Communist past, none are doing what is obviously necessary.

Justin Trudeau should be asked what he thinks of world government, North American Union, and yes, Communism. (I could answer those questions for him, but I won’t do that in this post.)

Here is the troubling article penned by Justin Trudeau’s brother Alexandre as a monument to the Trudeau family’s beloved Fidel Castro. Fidel attended Pierre Trudeau’s funeral in Montreal in September 2000. At left, Castro is seen embracing Justin.

I grew up knowing that Fidel Castro had a special place among my family’s friends. We had a picture of him at home: a great big man with a beard who wore military fatigues and held my baby brother Michel in his arms. When he met my little brother in 1976, he even gave him a nickname that would stick with him his whole life: “Micha-Miche.”

A few years later, when Michel was around 8 years old, I remember him complaining to my mother that my older brother and I both had more friends than he did. My mother told him that, unlike us, he had the greatest friend of all: he had Fidel.

For many years, Cuba remained Michel’s exclusive realm; whenever someone would accompany my father there, it would naturally be Michel. It wasn’t until after both my father’s and brother’s deaths that I got a chance to visit Fidel and his country, Cuba.

Fidel may have been at first a political contact of my father’s but their relationship was much more than that. It was extra-political.

Indeed, like my father, in private, Fidel is not a politician. He is more in the vein of a great adventurer or a great scientific mind. Fidel doesn’t really do politics. He is a revolutionary.

Fidel Castro, Maggie, Alexandre

He lives to learn and to put his knowledge in the service of the revolution. For Fidel, revolution is really a work of reason. In his view, revolution, when rigorously adopted, cannot fail to lead humanity towards ever greater justice, towards an ever more perfect social order.

Fidel is also the most curious man that I have ever met. He wants to know all there is to be known. He is famous for not sleeping, instead spending the night studying and learning.

He also knows what he doesn’t know, and when he meets you he immediately seeks to identify what he might learn from you. Once he has ascertained an area of expertise that might be of interest, he begins with his questions. One after the other. He synthesizes information quickly and gets back to you with ever deeper and more complex questions, getting more and more excited as he illuminates, through his Socratic interrogation, new parcels of knowledge and understanding he might add to his own mental library.

His intellect is one of the most broad and complete that can be found. He is an expert on genetics, on automobile combustion engines, on stock markets. On everything.

Combined with a Herculean physique and extraordinary personal courage, this monumental intellect makes Fidel the giant that he is.

He is something of a superman. My father once told us how he had expressed to Fidel his desire to do some diving in Cuba. Fidel took him to the most enchanting spot on the island and set him up with equipment and a tank. He stood back as my father geared up and began to dive alone.

When my father had reached a depth of around 60 feet, he realized that Fidel was down there with him, that he had descended without a tank and that there he was with a knife in hand prying sea urchins off the ocean floor, grinning.

Back on the surface, they feasted on the raw sea urchins, seasoned with lime juice.

An anachronism

Fidel turns 80 years old today. A couple of weeks ago, he shocked the world by turning power over to his brother Raul after holding it without interruption since the 1959 revolution. In newspapers across the world, pundits solemnly declared that even giants are mortal and that no revolution is eternal. Historians even began to prepare the space that will be granted Fidel in history books.

Fidel may seem an anachronism: a visionary statesman in a world where his kind have long since been replaced by mere managers, a 20th-century icon still present in the 21st century.

There is also wild speculation about what fate awaits Cuba after Castro. It is important to note, however, that while the whole world works itself up about the matter, Cubans themselves play it cool. Some of my shrewder Cuban friends even say that this temporary withdrawal from power is another one of Castro’s clever strategies; that it is something of a test and that he will soon be back at the helm. They say that, on one hand, Castro is allowing the Cuban people, and more specifically the Cuban state apparatus, to become accustomed to the leadership of his brother Raul. On the other hand, Castro is carefully watching for hints as to how the world ? and, more importantly, the United States ? will react to his final departure.

Cubans remain very proud of Castro, even those who don’t share his vision. They know that, among the world’s many peoples, they have the most audacious and brilliant of leaders. They respect his intellectual machismo and rigour.

But Castro’s leadership can be something of a burden, too. They do occasionally complain, often as an adolescent might complain about a too strict and demanding father. The Jefe (chief) sees all and knows all, they might say.

In particular, young Cubans have told me that an outsider cannot ever really imagine what it is like to live in such a hermetic society, where everyone has an assigned spot and is watched and judged carefully. You can never really learn on your own, they might say. The Jefe always knows what is best for you. It can be suffocating, they say.

I met a young man in the small provincial town of Remedios who worked there as a cigar roller. We shared a great love for the works of Dostoyevsky. When I expressed to him my excitement at meeting a fellow aficionado of Russian literature, he flatly told me:

“Yes, Fidel has taught me to read and to think, but look what work he sets me out to do with this education: I roll cigars!”

Literate but very poor

Cuba under Castro is a remarkably literate and healthy country, but it is undeniably poor. Historians will note, however, that never in modern times has a small, peaceful country been more subjected to unfair and malicious treatment by a superpower than Cuba has by the United States.

From the very start, the United States never gave Castro’s Cuba a choice. Either Castro had to submit himself and his people to America’s will or he had to hold his ground against them.

Which is what he did, in the process drawing the Cuban people into this taxing dialectic that continues to this day. Cubans pay the price and may occasionally complain of their fate, but they rarely blame Castro. The United States never fails to make the Cuban people well aware of its spite for this small neighbouring country that dares to be independent.

Castro Superman

With the possible exception of Nelson Mandela, already well into retirement, Fidel is the last of the global patriarchs. Reason, revolution and virtue are becoming more and more distant and abstract concepts. We will perhaps never see another patriarch.

We thus have to conceive of the departure of the last patriarch in psychoanalytical terms. The death of the father doesn’t signal our liberation from him ? quite the contrary. The death of a father so grand and present as Castro will, rather, immortalize him in the minds of his children.

It is true that Cubans may eventually cast away the communist orthodoxy of the revolution. They will become tempted by American capital and values as soon as the embargo against them is lifted, something that will surely follow in the not so distant future. They will have new opportunities for individual fulfillment and downfall. Without a doubt, Cuba without Castro will not remain unchanged.

But Cubans will continue to be subjected to Castro’s influence. Whether they like it or not, they will continue to be called out by his voice, by his questions, by his inescapable rationality, which, whether they heed its call or not, demands they defend the integrity of Cuba and urges them to seek justice and excellence in all things.

For a generation to come, they will be haunted by the vision of a society that never existed and probably never will exist, but which their once-leader, the most brilliant and obsessed of all, never stopped believing could exist and should exist.

Cubans will always feel privileged that they, and they alone, had Fidel.

Who is Behind Communism?

Who is Behind Communism?

In reading the posts and articles at this web site, the astute observer will note the number of wealthy individuals, and “sons of millionaires”, who emerge as elite Soviet spies and leading Communists. The case is no different in Canada. They have university degrees, travel money, as well as possessing unusually keen communication skills.

They emerge as writers, editors and managing editors of newspapers, stars of “news” broadcast media, and directors of national film boards.

In short, they commandeer and “revolutionize” our sole means of local and national communications, eliminating or vilifying all views but their own. They slant the majority of the “news” to achieve their own agenda.

They invade the universities so that our children are not taught skills to think, but are indoctrinated with an agenda. I discovered this myself thirty-four years ago as a 26-year-old first-year Honors student in Liberal Arts. I was furious to discover I had been indoctrinated with the “Marxist analytic” to which no label had been attached. My Marxist professors were merely amused by my outrage.

Communists also infiltrate our traditional political parties to subvert them from the inside. Ultimately, all the parties end up controlled directly or indirectly by socialist interests, and all spout the same Socialist, Marxist, Leftist, Progressive rhetoric. The outcome is a de facto, one-party system.

If the average elector wonders why his vote for change never does any good, the foregoing could be some of the reasons.

Increasingly, as they own the system, they invent grievances. They target particular members of the population and indoctrinate them with these grievances in order to outrage them and use them to destroy the system. The Marxist graduate of the London School of Economics, his Fabian allies across the civil service, with the backing of controlled news in the hands of his good friends the Leftist Rhodes Scholars, elite Soviet spies, and capitalist Bilderbergers, now prepares to offer the confused citizen his own “new” system to replace theirs, which he has undermined.

But who are these people, how did they position themselves inside our system to freely destroy it from within?

As I have learned, it is important to understand that Communism was not invented by the poor. It was invented by corrupt intellectuals and power-mongers backed by the wealthy, in fact by the super-wealthy. Communism flourishes thanks to Big Money, while our Western civilization and cultures perish under the onslaught.

With money, all of our basic social, political and academic institutions have been hijacked. With “benevolent” grants, the ideological content of our political, cultural and communications media have all been commandeered to the Leftist, Socialist, Progressive, anti-national, anti-family agenda whose final end is the imposition of one set of politically correct, state-approved “values”. You are now free to believe whatever you wish, as long as you believe this.

Once the “values” are agreed upon, and “democracy” is everywhere imposed at the end of a commandeered Western gun-barrel in the unlikely name of “liberty”, the people can be tricked or forced into voting to adopt the corrupt new system of the monied elites in rigged elections and so-called referendums. And that will be the last “vote” they get.

Today, in Marxist Europe, which “news” vehicles like the French Le Monde call “post-democracy”, true Western liberty and democracy are being rapidly ploughed under everywhere by totalitarianism and dictated “law”. The vote, which for decades has been meaningless due to vast political infiltration, will soon be officially meaningless. Representative and Responsible self-government will have died and passed from history with barely a whimper.

But how did it start? One milestone on the long road to elite world dictatorship is the 1917 Bolshevik “revolution”: it was really a murderous coup d’état bankrolled by super-capitalists and international banks, and would have failed without them. The people of Russia were literally taken prisoners in their borders, and used to set up an experimental prototype for a future Communist (banker-controlled*) world government.

By forced “redistribution of wealth,” the backbone of that society was pillaged and resistors liquidated by deliberate mass starvation, as their communities were blockaded. In following years, the “Red terror” of purges, show trials and routine executions enslaved the minds of the Russian people to their captors, dissolving their potential unity by turning them against one another as “spies” for the liquidators. If you could not name five neighbours who were “enemies of the state”, your own name went on the list, and you were exterminated.

As I have said elsewhere, and will say again, Communism is a mental illness with its own political movement.

It is not hard to see that Communism in practice aims at complete elimination of individual liberty and the concentration of all power in the hands of a few. It should thus be no surprise that those who already have substantial power are precisely those attempting to attain all power. In order to do so, they collapse economies; finance wars; foment “revolutions”; exploit the poor; subvert education; capitalize leadership campaigns; marginalize, imprison or liquidate opponents; and control the press and media to deceive the gullible.

A good introductory summary of the true aims and organizers of Communism as promoted by intellectuals and the super wealthy may be found in “Lines of Credit: Ropes of Bondage” by Robert Henry Goldsborough, a former staff investigator for the U.S. House Committee on Un-American Activities. That article is linked above as “Goldsborough” at the “Library” tab.

I should like to say that in offering this source of abundant information on capitalist financing of the Communist conspiracy, I am not promoting either the American Revolution of 1776, or any particular religious community.

Will you take the “Red Pill”, dear reader?
