Canada is now governed by absurdism, and it is symptomatic of an ailing Western elite.
Whether by accident or intent, the truckers have now become iconic of far larger issues. Their resistance to government vaccination mandates transcends them. And so, they are playing the role of the proverbial straw that may break the back of a once compliant Canadian citizenry, burdened by over two years of masks, lockdowns, and vaccination mandates.
Howard Beales yelling, "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it
anymore!" or the iconic Tunisian peddler Tarek el-Tayeb Mohamed Bouazizi
whose self-immolation prompted the Arab Spring, or Tank Man who stood erect in
Tiananmen as an oncoming tank finally swerved around him. The truckers are
saying to the Canadian people, "Watch and we will kindly show you why you
always privately suspected that this prime minister and his ilk were frauds."
As in the case of earlier exasperated rebels, we do not know the exact
consequences that will follow, only that the leaders who targeted the
dissidents will likely end up worse than their targets.
