As I watch and listen to the reports and commentary coming in from Canada on the protest of the Covid-19 vaccine mandates by the truckers who call themselves the Freedom Convoy, I am struck by the degree to which this confrontation is in many ways representative of the ultimate conflict we face. This is way beyond the immediate and proximate issue, way beyond Canada and the vaccine mandates. It’s a lead element in the showdown between freedom and the administrative state, between the elites and the working class, between the “science” of policy experts and common sense, and between pluralistic and representative government and a “woke” majoritarianism that invites intolerance. And it will get much worse before it gets better, but only when the liberal establishment steps up to take restorative leadership of the cultural institutions it owns and has been complicit in their corruption. Let me have your thoughts.
